Before the Italian ititr, tiia I'nitv of
(ienaanj' ras bnt n vitiotnry scheme, en
tertained by tbosa wh reincinbcreJ the t
aBCreat Germanic graiMlur; but when bos-'
tilities took place, on tl very frontiers of
the Confederation, thco .aspiratioos as
Earned a' form, and ilia fear of beta;
obliged to take art in the content, with-;
ont being- prepared, aal without sufficient '.
military organization, ciuied all tho Uer-1
man States to turn to Prussia for asfUt
ance. The Diet inspixd them all with
feelings of hatred, district and contempt.
All remembered that Xetternich had used
it, for more than thirty years, to stifle all
progress towards liberty, and that since it
had been re-established LyaVustria, it was
not strong enough to check the antago
nism of the two leading Towers Pros"
sia and Austria.
The conviction that a reforn was neces
sary grew so strong that the rrinces them
ielres went to wwk to find new Consti
tutional combinations. In 1S0, tho Duke
of SaxeOIeiniDgen proposed the system
of the -Triad," 2Hos-wVa. To obtain
more unity and force of actioi, the Con
federation was to have three Directors
one naaied by Prussia, another by Aus
tria, and the" third" by the miior States.
In 1SS1, the Duke or Saxe-Ccbnrg intro
duced the idea of a general Representa
tive Assembly of the German nation, but
he was called a revolutionist by some, and
laughed at by others. In the same year,
Mr. von Deust, then Prime Minister of
Saxony, remodeled the idea of tho Triad,
and made it yet more complicated ; while
Mr. vog BernstorfT, the Prussian Minister,
presented again the programme of Erfurt.
Lastly, the Emperor of Austris, in the
famous Assembly of the Sovereigns at
Frankfort, communicated a project evi
dently superior to all the others ; but every
project of reform was sure to be defeated
by the veto of either Prussia, Austria, or
the other States, when it was in favor of
either of the two rival Powers. This
state of affairs, though condemned and
blamed by all, cculd not be altered, for the
simple reason that none of the State3
would give np Uie slightest part of their
independence. Germany, at that time,
wa3 like a traveler, who, having lost his
way in a marsh, succeeds in getting one
leg out of the mud by sticking the other
ifooxvr Inta iHa minx .
The tendencies of Germany tonania
Unity hod become more and more earnest
and general, when a man appeared on the
scene of action who was to solve the in
solvable problem, like Alexander the
Great, by cutting tbe gordian. knot.
Otto von Bismarck-Schonhausen wa3
bora on the 1st of April, 1S15, and be
longs to an ancient family of Altmark,
which has alwys had some of it? members
engaged in the military profession. His
father, an ex-captain of cavalry, sent him
to the Universities of Gottingea, Berlin
and Griefswald, for the study of law and
political economy. Young Bismarck dis
tinguished himself by hi3 remarkable apti
tude for bodily exercises, gymnastics and
fencing. He was fond of duels, a favorite
amusement with the German students of
that period, and acquired the reputation of
a successful duelist, and more than one of
hi3 political opponents in the Berlin Par
liament still bear tbe scars of wounds he
inflicted upon them. Ilis quarrelsome dis
position, his powerful frame, and his bodily
strength seemed to destine him as an of
ficer of Cuirassiers, and even to this day,
he likes to wear the uniform of that corps
in preference to any other. He, however,
did not continue his military career, but
discharged some unimportant administra
tive duties at Berlin and Aix-Ia-Chapelle.
In 1545. his father died, and he resolved
to live in the country and employ his time
in taking care of the properties he had
inherited in Saxony and Pomerania. In
1S47, he was deputed to the General As
sembly, and leaving, for a time, the useful
occupations of a country gentleman, he
sided, without hesitation, with the party
that, in view of preserving and increasing
the privileges of the aristocracy, wanted
to maintain, unaltered and unimpaired, the
absolute power of Royalty. He made him
self renowned by hi3 passionate attacks
against the new ideas of political equality
and constitutional liberty.
After the year 1845, he was not elected
to the Parliament of Berlin nor to that of
Frankfort, and lived in the country. The
triumph of the Revolution ; the humilia
tion of the King in the month of March ;
and the appearance of the tri-colorcd Ger
man flag, filled him with indignation and
wrath. "The only way to make an end of
it," said he, " is to barn all the large cities,
for they are the central points of revolu
tionary ideas." In 1849, when Frederic
"Wilfiam granted a new Constitution, Mr.
too Bismarck was elected to tbe Prsssian
Assembly, and to the Parliament of Erf art,
which was to establish the Limited Con
federation. With an inflexible logic, he
would energetically throw the Marae cpon
the King for seeking assistance from the
popular party. "That tri-colored flag,"
said he to the Ministers, "which adorra
those walls shall never be mine, because Ft
i the flag of the insurrection and of the
urricades." "The Imperial Crown of
Frankfort is, without doubt, very flue and
irilliant, but ia order to get all tho gold
icccssary to make it, the Prussian Crown
vould have to be melted, and I do not
olievo that this can be done." Thero
vera none of tho national aspirations of
Jennany that he did not oppose with rage,
le defended tho rights of Denmark, and
ondemncd tho war or Sculeswig. Prus
ia, in sustaining tho Hessians, was botray
ng the principles of Monarchy; and ac
cording to his opiuion, it was better to
rield to Austria, and to try, with her aid,
to extirpate all revolutionary fermentation.
"1 do not understand," cried he, "why
the title of n German Suite should bo re
fused to Austria. Is she not the heinua
of the old German Empire, and ha3 sho
not, on more than one occasion, carried
with glory tho sword of Germany I'
He never regretted tho day of Olmntz,
the remembrance of which was so bitter
to all who wished to see Prussia at the
head of the Confederation, and during the
sessions of 1S50 and 1851, he gained the
royal favor by the haughty fanaticism of
his monarchical opinions, and his implaca
ble hatred of all novelties. In 1851, he
was sent to the Diet of Frankfort, to rep
resent Prussia. Xo better choice could
have been made, at that timo, when old
abuses were to be restored.
So far, Mr. von Bisjnarck appears to us
as an exaggerated type of that party of
aristocrats (junkerpartei,) which tried to
conceal, under a military arrogance and a
haughty mien, the narrowness of its ideas
and the insufficiency of its resources. "I
adhere," said he " to the opinions of tho
Middle Ages, or of darkness, a3 they may
call it, and I have sucked its prejudices
with my mother's milk." Such a Con
servative as was. then Air. von Bismarck,
must needs have been fond of Austria,
that gothic Empire, hostile to every kind
of heresy and innovation, but he was alto
gether out pf place in Prussia, which, born
from a religious insurrection, has grown
nnder the auspices of Frederic the Great
and of Stein, by adopting the new ideas.
The supporters of the Past arc always in
a difficult position, for tha very Past they
invoke rise3 against them.
However, during the eight years (1851
to 1S59,) he spent in Frankfort, Mr. von
Bismarck's opinions underwent a complete
change. He-had arrived there .full of rfe
specc tor Austria, and of hatred against
the Unity scheme, and when ho left that
city he was determinsd to favor tho latter
and oppose the former. tVhat was the
cause of such an extraordinary change ?
There are but few indications in this re
spect a few anecdotes, extracts from let
ters, and some allusions to his former po
litical opinions on the part of the present
Prussian Minister, who speaks of that
time without any diplomatic reserve. ITo
came to the conclusion that Austria
aimed at rendering Prussia her vassal;
that the minor States aimed at keeping
alive the fire of discord between their two
powerful neighbors; and that tbe Diet
was an absurd institution, Uiisinn,) nox
ious to the country, which might lead to a
European war for the mere satisfaction of
Austrian interests. He thought that the
only means of maintaining the independ
ence of Prussia wa3 to placo her at the
head of Germany, and in a letter dated
April 2d, lb'58, he indicates the best way
of obtaining that result, viz. : the consti
tution of a Custom Parliament (ZoUparla
meaL) In the beginning of 1859, just before
the war of Italy, he was of opinion that
Prussia, instead of assuming towards
France n menacing attitude, should turn
against Austria, and profit by the situation
to reorganize Germany. He expressed
that idea so violently that the Prince
Regent called him from the Diet, and
sent him to St. Petersburg. He remained
there till the Spring of 1862, about which
time, it seems, the Emperor of tbe French
intimated that he would see with pleasure
Mr. Ton Bismarck the representative of
Prussia in Paris. After six months' stay
in that capital, ho was called to Berlin, in
September, and empowered to sustain the
Ministry a their memorable struggle
against the Chamber of Deputies. It was
then that he inaugurated that system of
politics by which, nnder the appearance of
an extreme Conservatism, it was sought
to carry out, through violence and force,
the revolutiontry programme of 1848.
He evidently wished to resume the de
signs of Mr. Ton Badowitz, and to lead
Prussia to the accomplishment of what
she considered her "historical missisn."
But it wa3 first necessary to give her a
better frontier through annexation pf some
of tbe neighboring territory, and then to
put her at the head of re-organized Ger
many. In regard to tbe Erst point, Lonis
Borne had formerly said: "Prussia, with
its Hi-defined and extended frontiers, is
like a young man who wears garments too
large for him, but wait patiently, and ha
will fill them np when he grows older."
As Co the re-organization of Germany, it
was only necessary to give an impetus to
Two different systems might be chosen :
moral conquests, or military conquests.
Some said : " Let Prussia give tho exam
ple of liberal ftistitutions, and all tho others
will come to her. and join her." Their
motto was : Unity through Liberty. Oth
ers thought that Austria and all the other
State3, rejecting every kind of reform,
should first be compelled, and that Liberty
would bo the result of Unity.
It is only tho truth to say that Mr. von
Uismarck never pretended to couccal his
projects, and to this, tho following passago
from a speech,, ho delivered in October,
1S62, bears witness: "The interest or
Germany is not that Prussia should bo
liberal, b"ut that she should be strong. Sho
must iucreaseand concentrate her strength,
and seizo all favorable opportunities. Our
frontiers are not those of a well-constituted
State. Besides remember, it is not through
votes and discussions that great questions
are settled. It was a mistake to think so
in 184S and 1&19. They must bo decided
bv the sword."
In the Address to the Royal Geographical
Society oOLonJon, delivered at tho Anni
versary Meeting on the 25th of May, 1SCS,
by Sir Roderick Itnpoy Murchlson, Bart., we
arc happy to Hud a highly nattering comment
ou the interesting report of our Capt. Thomas
Long, regarding tho best route for reaching
the opcu Tofar Sea, which report wa3 pub
lished In tho P. V. JdrMuer of January last
Stating the efforts hitherto made by British,
German and French Arctic Explorers, Sir
Roderick tays : ,
Whilst such are the preparations and hopes
in European countries, a great amount of
fresh knowledge has been obtained by our
American kinsmen, who. In their whaling
vessels, have pushed their enterprise through
Bearing Strait, far beyond the land first
eisrhted by Kellett, and beyond Ti' X. lati
tude, have coasted extensive high lands
which He off the coast of Siberia, from which
they are. It Is thought, separated by the sea
first seen by Wrangcll. These, Indeed, are
great advances since the days when Collinson
(whose discoveries in another direction have
never been surpassed), determined tbe out
line of the whole northern coast of America,
and Kellett first saw Herald Island.
One of these masters of American wlialers
Captain Long has communicated to the
JTieiflc Cormnercuil Ailttriiicr, of Honolulu, a
report which, in giving a lively sketch of the
proircss of Arctic discovery from the days
of llndson and Frobisher, has enunciated"
the opinion that if ever a transit by water be
made between the Eastern and Western
Oceans, it will not be by lines hitherto tried,
but by an enterprise directed from Ilchring
Looking at the fact that tbe Arctic Sea Is
bounded by North America, Greenland, Spits
bergen, Nova Zcmbla, and Siberia, and that
it is the recipient of enormous LoJies of
water poured Into it bv many lanrc rivers.

with a powerful outflow of water transport
ing and moving out the Icq southward into
tho Atlantic Thus it was that Parry, hav
ing proceeded with great perseverance in
sledges 233 miles nothwarils, and having
reached Lit. S2' 45', was only 172 miles trom
his starting-point, so steadily had the broken
ice been carrying bim and his party sonth
wards by this great channel. Considering
that the same outflow of water and ice has
been met with by all explorers to the north
of Smith Sound, Capt. Long maintains that
Bearing Strait stands in favorable contrast
to the other openings Into the regions of the
Polar Sea, and is the channel In Trhicli tho
effort should be made He affirms, from the
experience of whalers since 1S17, that no
frreat body of water Hods its way sonth
through Behrlng Strait; and that, at least in
thesprinp; and summer, the current isalwajs
found setting to the north, owing, as he in
fers, to the discharge of the rivers on tho
North American shore, and that of the Ana-
dyr, on tbe Asiatic coast. He suggests,
therefore, that a strong vessel of 00 "to SCO
tons burthen, and provided with sufficient
steam-power to cct through temporary ob
stacles, shonld follow the Asiatic shore from
Behrlng Strait as far as Cape Kckumai or
Cape Schclagskol. From some point between
those canes the conrse would be to tho north
of the Liachoo Islands, whence tbe course,
towards Spitzbergcn or the Pole would be
influenced by the currents proceeding from
the crcat Siberian rivers. If the vessel were
obstructed by Ice to the northward of these
Is, the outflow enrrcht, thouzb not so strong
as immediately to the north' of Spitzbergen
or In Baffin's Bay, would, he thinks, eventu
ally carry the ship through one of tbe chan
nels Into the Atlantic
Another route by which the voyage might,
in tbe opinion of Captain Long, be accom
plished, is to proceed from Bearing Strait to
the mouth of the Lena, then directly north
beyond Cape Sievero Vostoscbnl, and then
westward, towards Spitsbergen.
The letter of this experienced whaling cap
tain is highly entitled to the notice of all
persons Interested In Arctic 'exploration, in
asmuch as be assigns strong grounds for be
lieving that, hitherto, we have been toiling,
like Sisyphus, against natural obstacles; he
believes that notwithstanding a few minor
obstacles on the Siberisn coast, If we once
get a stout but small vessel into tbe current
caused by tbe Yenissel and other great Sibe
rian streams, she would, if entanslcd in
the pack, be unquestionably carried forward
Into the Atlantic
Capt. Long concludes that the passage
from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean will
eventually be accomplished from Behrlng
Strait by one of the two routes which he
has indicated, and adds, " I have as much
faith in this as X have In any uncertain future
event, and much more than I had fifteen
years ago iu the Atlantic telegraph."

CoS3rTHATOE3 Major General Edward JL
MeCook, of Ohio, a brave and gallant officer

dated August 23, to Senator Conness, writes
as follows :
"The news of.the Democratic nominations

weak the very weakest combination that

won't vote for Seymqnr because be was a

for Blair because be wore a blue Instead of a

that a cousin of mine, Geo. W. llcCook, bad

the manipulation of this arm Is too delicate.

we gave tho report of some Swcdlng officers
who bad been permitted, with tho writer
ot tho above, to thoroughly Inspect the
Chassepot. They were unanimous In con
demning It for use in a cold country, as the
amount of lubrication with oil was too great,
and the oil would freeze and Impede the ac
tion; besides, a soldier In camp, a garden
camp, with plenty of time on his hands, is a
very different fellow from a hard-worked,
rough campaigner, who growls at every extra
bit of labor forced upoL him, and the French
soldier does not take to trouble very kindly.
If the Chassepot Is used for a summer lively,
short campaign, that is another matter; but
Bismarck or Russia will doubtless have an
eye to the exact merits of the Chassepot, and
delay till the dead season of winter or severe
weather comes on. .YetM Letter.
Death or a Naval Orricnn. Last even

scut to tho Police Office that a man had been
killed at the northwest corner of Sutter and
Stockton streets. We immediately des
patched a reporter to the place, who learned
tno louowtng iacis: a young lauy in tue
employ of a tailor on Sutter 6trcct was abont
going home; as she passed she saw two men
having a firm hold of the man and knock
ing him over the head. One of them pro
ceeded to pull bid coat off and throw It over
his head, whilst the other went through bla
pockets; they then threw him to tho ground,
the man falling across tbe railway track.

from the corner grocery opposite came out,
picked tho man up and carried him to the
store Medical aid was Immediately sum
moned, but arrived too lato to render any
assistance, as the unfortunate man hod al
ready expired. The doctors could not then
give an opinion as to the cause of his death:
one of them thougt that bo might have died
of apoplexy. No marks of violence could
be found on his person ; yet still be mlyM
havo been struck on the back of the head
by ruffians w 1th a heavy sand-bag, which is
sometimes used by robbers to "accomplish
their fonl designs. These sand-bags, though
they leave no ontcr mark oh tnc person
when struck on tbe head, cause a concussion
of the brain, producing Immediate death.
From papers found on tho body ol tbe dead
man. It was believed to be that of Lieutenant
Commander John G. Mitchell, of Saginaw,
that was wrecked tome time since at Vic
toria. Ife was a fine-looking man, well
built, about S3 years of age. Tho deceased
was a native of Massachusetts, and entered
the Navy In 1S19, and had been eighteen
years In the service Tho Coroner was noti
fied, who had the remains conveyed to 'his
office, where an inquest will bo held.
Lateb. At last accounts we learn "that
Lieut. Mitchell was nut murdered, notwith
standing tbe statement of the woman who
says she saw him struck and robbed. It Is
believed that he died in a fit, and his valu
ables were taken charge of by one of the
policemen who arrived on the ground very
shortly after he died.
