An instructive climpse oi .European pol
Itics may be caught from the figures of the
North German Budget na detailed in a cor
respondence from Berlin. Even that econoin
,ical and thrifty Confederacy over which Prue
eU presides. Is now In financial difficulties.
The Federal Budget, like the Budgets of so
many other Slates, shows a deficit. The ci
penditure for military and uaval purposes,
has been Increasing; the revenue, owlug to
the prosecution of these very purposes, Is
on tlie dcclioe. It is I tie universal story.
Wars and rumors of wars press on the ex
cheauer. while trado statrnates. lndustrv lan.
gn1sbc9, and taxes, necessarily, fall off In
Srodnctivcness. The Prussian flgnres are,
onbtless, on a small scale compared with
the accounts of other nations, nor need It be
Imagined that any 6erions difficulty will be
fonnd in re-establishing the equilibrium de
sired, but the case, as far as It goes, Is pre
cisely iimoi omer countries at tnis critical
According to the constitution of the young
Confederacy, the Federal Government de
frays, from a Federal Income, the charges of
the Army and avr, with other small ex
penses; dui, in tue event oi tnis income
falling short or the expenditure, the States
of the Confederacy are bound to make up
the deficit by contributions proportioned to
their means. For the current? Tear, the Fed
eral .expenditure is estimated at something
less than 12,000,000, whereas it Is not ex
pected that more than 8,000,000 will be
vieiaea uy tne federal revenue. A oaiance,
therefore, of some 4.000.000 would remain
to be provided by the several States of the
uonlcaeracy, ana tnis prospect is regarded
with considerable perplexity. It Is not com
petent to the Government so we are assured
to retrench Its expenditure, and. in fact.
tbo proposed outlay has already been sanc
tioned uonsiaenng tue recent convulsions,
and the necessities imposed on the new
Kingdom by the supposed hostility of Aus
tria ana tuo jealousy oi trance, rrussia,
which stands for five-sixths of the Fedcra-
tloo, was compelled to be on her guard, and
a demand of 11,000,000 for the Army and
Aavy estimates, was not, nnder sucn cir
cumstances, unreasonable. It follows, there
fore, as the outgoings could not be curtailed.
that the Income must be increased, and such
Increase can onlv come from taxes or loans.
The view, however, taken by the Germans of
tnis alternative, and.ol tne various exigencies
involved, is exceedingly characteristic.
It would not be difficult to borrow, for
Prussian credit is good; but the creditor
f russla is jcood ror the very reason tuat bor
rowing has never been In favor with her
people, i lie Germans see, clearly enough,
that the sjstcm of meeting yearly deficits by
yearly loans would lead to national embar
rassment, nor can tuev oersnade themselves
that the present need la altogether excep
tional, it is too iikteiy tuat me naiancc at
the next reckoning would be found still
against them ; Iu other words, the demand is
of a kind to bu met rather by a permanent
than a casual Increase of revenue by taxa
tion, that Is, and not by loan. The I ederal
Parliament dld..ltis.true.. authorize a small
loan for new Ironclads, and the remainder of
a loan contracted in 1607, is still available to
a slight extent for the service of the current
year. But beyond these transactions mod
erate enough in comparison with the deal
lugs of other States the Germans will not
go, and so nothing but taxation is left for
them' At this point, however, their re
sources arc unusually varied.
As the deficit Is immediately occasioned
by the Insufficiency of the Federal Income to
meet the Federal expenditure. It Is obvious
that the balance might be .redressed -by in-.
creasing this particular revenue as distin
guished from the contingent contributions
of the Confederate States. The Inc'ume in
question is drawn mainly from Customs the
profits of the post-office and the telegraph,
which alio belong to the Federal Exchequer,
being hardly worth mention. These Cos
toras, therefore, might be Increased, and that,
It seems, is the policy In favour with the
Government. But here a constitutional
difficulty arises. The Germans have not yet
won their political freedom. They have still
something to (conquer and many popular
rights to reclaim from the old military mon
archy, and they are fully sensible of the im
portance in such a contest of the command
of the purse. It happens, however, that
money granted to the Government In the
way suggested would be granted with very
few conditions, and would, in point of fact,
pass out of the control of the popular as
sembly almost as soon as voted. The conse
quence' is that the Parliament objects to
pecuniary grants, producing no political con
sideration, and, though it would be ready to
vote annual supplies, It Is not disposed to
provide the Government with permanent
taxes. On the other hand, the resort to the
individual States of the Confederacy is by no
means a popular expedient. The contribu
tions thns levied fall with great severity, not
to say Inequality, and tbo power of the pub
lic to support taxation appears to be on the
wane. As there has always been a deficit on
the Federal account, appeal has always been
made to the several States, but tbo demand,
unfortunately, becomes heavier and heavier,
and is, this year, something like a million
above the last requisition. Besides, the State
taxes, it is said, arc yielding less and less a
proof that taxation has reached its limit.
North Germany Is not among the most
highly-taxed countries In the world, but we
can readily believe that the Germans are un
easy under their increasing obligations and
diminishing resources, uor could auy stron
ger evidence be given of the malady which Is
now afflicting Europe. It Is not alleged, or
even suspected, that the Government is
spending too much; on thisronnd the fru
gal traditions of the monarchy and the race
give a sufficient assurance. Prussia, indeed,
"did her conquests cheap," but, for all that,
the cost Is felt, and not so much in the mere
outgoings of the State as In the political con
ditions which weigh upon its industry and
reduce its Income. Year after year taxes be
come less fruitful than before, simply because
confidence Is destroyed and enterprise para
lyzed by incessant expectation of war. These
rumors and dangers, whether real or other
wise, act wit h a double weight upon the com
munity. They compel the Government,
however prudently it may be disposed, tq in
cur fresh expenditure in warlike prepara
tions, and at the same time, by checking
trade and impairing credit, they curtail the
resources of the taxpayers. Attentive ob
servers of passing events can hardly fail to
ask themselves bow long this can fast. In
Germany itself the question has not yet as
sumed, any alarming proportions. As the
Parliament is satisfied ol the reasonableness
of the Ministerial demands, It will doubtless
find a way out of Its difficulty, and, Ineeed,
the whole amount actually In question would
appear In our eyes redicuionsly small. But
the Importance of the case consists In the
fact that even in thrifty and economical Prus
sia that pressure is felt which has. carried
other ststes to the brink of financial ruin.
Even In North Germany, with all the pru
dence of the people, and all the rare of the
Government, more money goes out and less
money comes In. No policy, however frm
gal, can Stand against the conditions of in
ternational life which keep all States armed
to the teeth in expectation of war. So long
as each great power thinks a million soldiers
necessary to its existence, so long will Bud
gets be characterized by deficits, and Indus
try be paralyzed by suspense and alarm.. If
this Is (he price paid (or making wars "short
and decisive," such contests, when calculat
ed from first to last, will be found as costly
and as calamitous as in days gone: by.

There has been an encouraging increase
of Hawaiian pastors. While one has fallen,
and .another proved incompetent to take
the care of his church, there have been'
eeveral ordinations and installations of Ha
waiians, who are all doing1 well laboring
faithfully, and it is honed saccessfnllv. in
the Lord's vineyard. The introduction of
natives into the ministry and pastoral
office, during the last four years, has been
truly wonderful, and calls for the loudest
thanksgiving- to God, and should make
the American, churches feel that thev have
not contributed in vain for the support of
missions ou me Hawaiian islands.
A great increase of rom distilleries, es
pecially in "Waimea district, must be no
ticed. Before my arrival here, in 1832,
small distilleries had been numerous, bnt
the chiefs had pnt them down. There had
been an occasional and partial revival of
them after their destruction, but during
the last year they had become quite nu
merous, and threatened to demoralize and
destroy the whole community. The dis
trict judge and some of the police helped
on the work of destruction, by joining in
and getting as drank as any of the lowest
classes. The central Government finally
took hold of the matter in earnest, and de
termined to put an end to the distilling
business. The dranken judge was requested
to resign, and another man appointed in'
his place ; the distillers' were taken up,,
tried, and heavily 'fined ; though most of
them have appealed to trial by1 jury, to
come off next -May. This has produced a
temporary cessation, at least, of distilling

Scorpion Eaters in Alqiers. Our oartT
to visit the exhibition consisted or soma
twenty Englishmen, and araonir hem a few
ladies. Alter a long walk through tbe old
town of, Algiers, we were shown Into a Moor
ish bouse, in the quanrangle of which, open
to the sky, were a number of Arabs seated
on the floor In the centre, singing; as Is their
custom a most monotonous chant to tbo
accompaniment ora big drum. . In a balcony
above, and looking down Into the court,
were the Moorish women, most of tiiera en-'
tlrely veiled with tbe exception or their lus
trous black-eyes, which flashed Into transnal
brilliancy in thellgbtortne numerous flam
beau r with which the court was illuminated.
Tbe effect was remarkable and not easily to
be forgotten. Tbe faces of tbe Arabs, some
of tbem msgnlQcent-looklng men, and excit
ed by the. music, the lights, the delicately
can ed marble pilasters supporting the gal
lery, and over All tbe star-studded blue sky,
forming an Impressive contrast to the noise
and tnmult beneath, made an extraordinary
picture which no canvass could accurately
convey' to the mind.
Presently, with a howl like a wild beast, s,
man rushed forward, and, standing overs'
pot of incense, commenced to sway Els body
in unison with the music. Gradually, to all
appearance, becoming more and more excit
ed, he at last rushed at one of his companions,
and seizing about a half window-nane of
glass from him, proceeded to cat It wltbj
grcatrelisb, crunching It between bis tectb,
ana cviaeuuv swallowing iob wnoie.
Then mother rushed forward, gesticulate
ing furiously, and Insisted npon swallowing
a dozen good-sized pebbles.
But perhaps tbe most extraordinary per
formance was that of a man who held ror
nearly a mlnue between his teeth a bar of
red-hot-Iron, so hot that one felt Its beat at
a considerable distance. He afterwards cool
ed his month by eating some prickly cactus,
which, as It grows Into pins and needles of
approved pattern, must be a delicious food.
Another Arab, after allowing a scorpion to
bang by Its tall to his band and lace, ate It
distinctly and positively, and appeared In
no way the worse. The sting may probably
have been extracted.
I examined for myself the stones, class and
scorpion, and there Is no doubt In my mind
that they were aU sctually swallowed, as I
was within a foot or two of the Derfonnera.
