SPHROU OF TE KIN0 OF PaUssIA.-The
King of Prussia recently gave audinence to
the General Superintendent and President of
the Protestant Consistory, and replied to
that dignatary in the following terms:
I am especially glad of the opportunity of
receiving, under present circumstances, the
representative of the National Church. The
period we are now passing through is se
rious and doeisive for the future of the coun
try. I have only deterr.ined with an anx
Ions. heart,. and after long and mature re
flection, upon ordering military prepera
,tions. My government and I do not desire
war, and it is not our fault that the ally
-which made a campaign in common with
Prussia two years ago now assumes a hos
tile attitude. The mission of the great Ger.
.man powers is to act in concert for the wel
fare of Germany.. I have not provoked the
existing complicat ion, but there are circum
stances in which .peace cannot possibly
be maintained. Neither I norany one can de
sire peace at any price. I have the full con
aclousness of my grave responsidility before
God and the country, but I shall pursue
with perfect confidence the way by which
God is pleased to conduct me. The clergy
should spread among the people a correct
acquaintance with the situation, and prav
for the King and the coantry. It is still
posible that peace may be maintained, but
itis necessary to look the future courage.
ously in the face.
In dismissing the General Superintendent,
His Majesty added' "I trust that we may
meet again in a time of peace."
A LL persons, either white or colors d, be.
tween the ages of 21 and 60 years,
