The French troops in Algeria consist of one ' corps d'armee,' the
7th, numbering about 60,000 men.
The troops in Algeria are
divided into two classes, namely, French corps, which remain there
in garrison for a certain number of years and then return to France,
and the so-called native troops, which never quit the colony except
on extraordinary occasions, as in the war against Germany, at the
outset of which, in July 1870, a division of them was incorporated
with the French army, forming part of the vanguard in Alsace.
The native troops consist of three regiments of Zouaves, three of
Turcos, or Tirailleurs algeriens,' three of Chasseurs d'Afrique,' and
three of Spahis.' Only a moiety of these troops is composed of natives of Africa, the rest consisting of natives of Europe of all nations.

three departments, and the latter in three divisions. According
to returns published in the
Journal OfHciel de la Kepublique

tribes, of 2,867,626
