Times wo copy tho following in relation to tho all-absorb,

If tho German Diet, to which Austria has referred the
settlement of tho Duchies, acts with spirit, it may do
crec Federal execution against Prussia, which, If Prus
sia i8 obst?nate, would bo a declaration of war against
' her by tbo wholo German Confederation. In that case
Prussia would be obliged cither to renounce her policy
and pretensions, or fight r\ ustrla and all Gotmauy be

with the intolerable aggravation that she bad jolnod
Italy In a. leagneagalnBt Germany.
I remember no war complicated as this will be; and
onco begun, I defy any ono to foresee how It will end.
.Prussia and Austria accuse each other, and both de
mand securities for the future. I have supposed that
.., Emperor Napoleon could command peace. If lie were
to declare against Prussia and Italy, It 1? possible. I
doubt li he conld toko the other side with an equal
ohance of sucoess. France and Russia united, could
command pea.ee; and if peace is not preserved, it is, in
my opinion, because they aro not united.
Italy 1H at once enthusiastic and desperate. As to
men, the numbers are unlimited: it is means, arms and
munitions and disciplina which may be Insufficient for
the struggle. In looking over my papers yesterday, I
turned up the following curious document. It purports
to be some remarks mido last summer by Prince Na
?cloon, who has lately made frequent viBlta to tbo
ullories. He is reported to have said :
"You ask me if I believe in war ? Yes, I do. How is
it to break out? I will tell yon. The war will break
. out in tho spring, and my father-in law will commence
it. Tho situation of Victor Emauuel la no longer en
durable. The public debt increasos evory year. 'This
; ' cannot last Tho King has repeat* illy written to the
Emperor that he must have a 'solution;' that be would
rather be plain Obovalltr de Oarlgnan than play the
part of a sovereign who seos himself dally driven toward
' O precl. fe-. X rnpnal It_mr r?tl?_-.<<? ?.- -_ - .-?oil
my cousin that in, the spring ho would attack the Aus
trian lines.' Believe me; It is thus that the struggle will
commence. Tho King indulgos in no illusions-ho
knows that Austria w10 be victorious, bat he knows
that hlB Bplondld army will offer a serious resistance be
ioro giving way. The victorious army will probably oc
cupy Lombardy-possibly Turin. But then tbo sltua
e - ' tion will change. However great may be the Emperor's
desire to maintain peace, ho conld not permit Austria
,? to destroy the work of Franco in Italy. He will be com
'* pelled to taterfere in spite of himself. If, however, con
trary to all expectation, the Emperor leaves my father
in-law in tho lorch, he would prefer to bec? mo King of
.,, Piedmont as bo toro, so as to oscape the responsibility
which weighs upon bim respecting Italy. What is most
probable la, that Franco will interfere, and t_at after
i . the war tho King will have the whole of Northern Italy,
while the Emperor will dispose of the South."
In the light of actual events, and bf the present situ
ation, this statement is remarkable. Tho Prussian corn
s' plication was not thou foremen. There is no doubt that
a treaty exists between Prussia and Italy-if not a trea
ty, thero is an understanding, and tho two Powers are
- natural allies, becauso both want extension of torr it ory,

THE AUSTRIAN AND ITALIAN SOLDIERY COMPARED.
[Medena Correspondence of the Journal des D?bats.]
The basis of tho education of the Italian army Is
. . agility, that of the Austrian, solidity. Nature forms the
Italian army, as she doe? almost all the o thor s lu Eu
rope, but it ia mau who m ikes the Austrian. The Ital
ian army, In good or ill fortuno, moves on the sugges
tions of the mind, but the Austrian by rulo and word of
command. Instinct, guided by order, is the chiof pro
peller o I the first; order, amounting at last to a sort of
Instinct, that of the second. The Austrian army is,
-f.i thereforo, worth more than the Italian in a methodical
__i battle with successive evolutions; but the Italian i? su
perior in an assault, where the first dash breaks
through, and carries all before It. That is why the
-< ' Italian Generals preferred meeting the Austrian army
-/-' op the p'alns of Lombardy to attacking it behind
the ramparts with which ' all Venetia Is brist
ling. Tho Italian soldier knows for what ho
fights; the Austrian, for whom. The former Is a
citizen, mlnglos with the population, shares Its pas
, alons, and feels Its impulses; tho latter is a soldier, and
' nothing else; li vos isolated, hears no veteo but that of
bia Corporal; his country is the barrack; bia nation a
province; hi? raoe tho subjects of a foreign ruler. Tim
Austrian army has one tradition-to fight, and always
to fight well; but in the end rarely to conquer, Austria
has always nat territory from war. Diplomacy, ! and
above all marriage, have donb more for her than'her
- i armlos. Felix Auttria nube. The Plodmonteso army,
now Italian, ha? alao a tradition : to fight now well, now
111, but to gain deoisivd victories. Tho Duchy of Savoy
ha? become Piedmont, and Piedmont has become Italy.
.;?, The dynasty of Savoy has not galued a singlo inch of
territory, whether from France, Germany, Spain or
Austria, but by force of combats or at the point of the
nword | a sword, not encumbered with many dlplotnetl
.':. oal scruple?. What Austria has lost she baa never for
gotten, but she has rarely recovered any of lior losaos,
and never single-handled.
What Piedmont ha? lost she has recovered, evon after
having forgotten it The House of Austria has lost the
Empire of-Germany, Lorraine, the Netherlands, Alaaco,
Tuscany, the Two Sloilles, Lombardy, Silesia, Emilia,
Ac, and she has lost thom forever. Tbo dynasty of
? Savoy, either single-handed or in conjunction with
-tiles, his taken part of all that, while perhaps wlahlng
for much loss than it has obtained. The Austrian aol
i filer lb more eDduring than tbo Italian; the latter is
moro ardent, more energetic In the first efforts. Moral
feeling have lit' lo Influence on the Austrian solder,
whereas tbo Italian is inflamed by a word-imagination
decides bim to act. In the Austrian the physical
qualities aro more powerful than tho mental; especially
with individuals not of German origin. In the italian,
tho man predominates over tbo beast whenever ho is
not swayod by angor or a desire of veugeuce.

The Mi*ht waa between Samuel Collior, of Baltimoro,
and Barnoy Aarons, of Now York, lor $600 a sido and
tho championship of the li? ht weights. Aarons is a pugi
list of noto, havlug beou tho victor lu ?oma half a dozon
contests. Collier, .t will bo romemborod, fought Hora
tio Bolster, of Now York, near White Uoueo Lauding,
on tho 4th of May, for $300 a ?irlo. On that occasion
the fight lasted flfty-flvo minutos, with for ty-nine rounds,
at tho end of which tho seconds of.Bolster throw up tho
apongo. Bolster oxhibtted no little pluck, but damaged
his hands oarly In tho fight so badly as to havo but little
chanco of winning. His backers wore firm in the bellof
that but for this mishap tho roault would havo boen
di lloren t.
Tbo boats prooceded tbla morning some twenty-throe
milos dowu the rivor, and mado a landing on tbo Vir
ginia shore, near l'ohlck Oreek.
On getting aabtrre tho crowd procoodod somo milo and
a half inland, where a suitable placo for tho fight was
tound on a by-road, between a wood and a ooru field.
Tho ground being selected, some difficulty occurred as
to a reforc?, wbloh was sottlod by tho selection of
Charles Oodfrey. Dan Carrigan and Doonoy Harris, of
Now York, acted as seconds for Aarons, aud John Fitz
gerald and Donnia Horrigan, of Baltimoro, for Col
Roth mon showed excellent condition, but Aarons
appeared to have the most confidence, and sprang into
tho ring considerably In advauco of his opponent, offer
ing to bot five to one ou winning.
Collior entered tho ring at a quarter beforo eight, and
the mi n having shaken haude and taken position, the
Aarons' fighting wolsht waa 123 pounds, that of Col
lior 125."; pounds. The first blood and first knock
cown waa awarded to Aarons on the f urtu round.
Aarons, who la noted for his activity end nisncuuvrlng
tactics, resorted occasionally to tho drop down policy
illustrated by Sayers in his fight with Heenan, but not
beyond the rules of the ring.
At tho tenth round Aarons bogan to show Blgns of
distress, and evidently lacked tho powers of endurauco
of his moro youthful adversary. In the eleventh round
ho staggered visibly, and got into tbo tullidlo of tho
ring with difficulty, but afterwards rallied, and ahowod
himself up active on his feet as when ho first enterod
tho ring. His bands, however, were puffed up eo that
ho could not deal effective blows. Through his activity
he succeeded in bitting Collior much oftenor than ho
was hit himself; but Collier's powers of endurance ona
bled him to iiull through. Collier's bauds began to
swell early In the fight, and one eyo was closed after tho
Beforo the olose of the fight both of ?Aarons* eyes were
so nearly closed that he was almost blinded, but per
sisted In fighting on. It was painfully evident, how
ever, to hte bookers that his best fighting days were
over, and that he stood no chance with his athletic
young opponent, who seemed capable of standing any
amount of pounding ; and at the end of the forty-so vent
round the seconds of Aarons threw up tho apongo, the
fight having lasted two hours and five minutes. Both
Collier and Aarons were so much exhausted and so
nearly blind at thoond of tho fight that it was requisito
to carry them to the boat on Btretchers.
The boats left Poblck, on their return, about 11
o'clock, reaching Washington about 1 P. M. Tbo news
of Collier's victory was soon circulated about town,
creating much elation amongst his partisans, who seem
to be in the majority here.
Groups collected at tho street corners lo talk the mat
ter over, and any person who had been a spectator of
this "hardest contested fight in America" waa suio to bo
the hero of a circle of eager listeners. But later in the
afternoon a fluttering and scatteratlon of all such gath
erings was oocaalono- by a rumor circulated that the
Chief of Polico was making a raid upon the principal
participants and spectators In the affair, and prutty Boon
not a man could bo found willing to admit that hb was
within twenty milos of Poblck uns morning.
[Both AAHONB and COLLIER, the principals In the
tight, and a number of their seconds and friends, were
arrested Wednesday evening, but tho principals were
found to be too badly injured to admit of romoval from
their lodgings. Thoy will bo hold for a recognition by
the Govornoi* of Virginia. The polico were, at last ac
counts, after othor parties who aided and encouraged
the fight, and there waa a general scamper of non-resi
m i ?
Yankees vs. Jews.
Wo copy the following from the Richmond Times:
The Jews, in the olden time, when King John and
other savage and needy sovereigns used to draw their
teeth If they did not lend (In othor words give) money
when It wa* needed, were considered a very valuablo
people. Civilization and Progress, in course of time,
rendored it safe for a Jew's tooth and gold to bo pos
sessed by the same individual, and at he South they
have been always a useful aud worthy people. To the
Federal Hold lera at City Point, In tho lato disgraceful
riot at that place, belong the honor and glory of reviv
ing the customs of tho middle ages (when King John
was a borrowor), which tolerated every species of wrong
and indignity to a harmless race, now scattered as a
nation having no place which thoy can call a home, and
no country of their own.
Weare not the special champion sf the Jews or of
the Jewish character, but we see nothing in their be
havior, here or elsewhere, which Justifies united States
soldiers in imitating tbe rapacious Sings snd Barons
of the middle ages in their robbeilea and persecutions
of this traduced and abused people. Nor havo wo heard
It nile god--in defence of the action of tho riotous sol
diers at City Point that they were then and there servlog
the causo of religion and Christianity by their conduct
Rut this, as a mitigating view, will doubtless be pre
sented and urged In Oongross hy that pious statesman,
Stevens, and other devout Radicals, should tola matter
ever come np for discussion.
Tb? experience of the Israolltea at City Point, how
ever, will not be without value to them. Thoy doubt
less'now possess a realizing sonso of the truth of tho
old .adage that "men often go a-woolllng and got
fleeoed/' Am|, as thoy went down the river to make
"much monlsh" ont of the belligerent Coffees, thoy
probably now porcelve that nobody but Freodmen's Bu
reau men and Maaiaobuaetts parsons will be permitted
to do so unmolested.
Our Israelitiah friends must read carefully tho reports
of Generala Steedman and Fullerton, and they will find
that they have no right to trespass upon tht? domain of
Chaplain Fitz and his New England associates. Out
siders are not permitted to rush in and olip and shoar
tho black lambs. Perhaps a Massashusotts Israelite,
with a certificate from Frederick Douglass, might stand
some chance, but wo think we have heard that there
are few, if any, of the scattered tribes of Israel in the
New England States. For this curious fact we have
heard many plausible reasons assigned.

EIGHT DOLLABR A DAT AND-STEALINC?.- From tho pro
ceedings in the House of Representatives of June IS, we
copy the following choice morceau: . . .
Mr. Garfield gave notice that ne would, hext Monday,
offer a resolution directing tho Oommltteo on Mileago to
examino and report what discrepancy, if any, there was
botweeu tho amount of mileago received by tho mem
bers of the last Congress and tbo amount claimed by
them, and directing the Committeo to allow no more
mileage, in future, to a member than is clalmod by him.
He explained the reason why he wished the resolution
to be adopted. On looking ovor the document showing
the pay as mileage of the members for the last Congres?,
he found himself set down as being paid 2745 miles of
travel, being for 685 milos, whereas ho bad only claimed,
In answer to the circular sont him by tho Chairman of the
Committee on Mileage, 605 miles as tho distance from
his home to Washington ; that multiplied by four would
make tho numoor of miles for wblch be should have
boon paid 2260 milos, so that he was paid for four hun
dred andolghty milos more than he had clalmod. Draw,
lug his mileage in sums o? fifty and one hundred dollors
at a timo, ho did not notice this discrepancy, and It was
only on referring to the dooument that he bocamo
aware of the fact. He found now, on inquiry, that
other membors from Ohio, and, perhaps, from all parte
ofthc country, had boen allowed moro mileago than
they had claimed. The gentleman from Olevolacd rMr
Spalding] claimed for only 610 miles, and was allowed
for 634, and hU colleague, Mr. Schenck, claimed for
only 689 miles, and was allowed for 812. Tho letters In
which they stated the number of miles travelled, in re
ply to tho circular of tho Chairman of the Oommltteo on
Miloage, were found in tho hands of tho Sorgeant-at
Arms, and indorsed with the number of miles, "an.
proved. J. W. W"" the tull?ais of Mr. White, of Ohio
Chairman of the Oommltteo.
.In the caso of his colleague [Mr. Schenck] ho bad dis
covered, on being paid the balauco due him the last
day of Congress, tho discrepancy, and had declined to
roceive tho lnoreaaod amount. It aopeared that the
Committee on Mileage had, in this way, got np a soalo
of distances utterly unknown to tho membeis, and now
the whole, thing was published to Oongrois and tho
country, snd membors wore sot down ae having re
ceived a very considerable amount moro than they had
c1 timed. Ho therefore gave this notice that he would
next Monday ask unanimous consent to offer tho reso
lution dlroctlng ?.ho oommltteo on Mileage to inquire

TESTIMONY OF RECOMMENDATIONS
From'Medical gentlemen, Professors of tho highest
Opthnlmlc talent in Charleston, 8. C, and lu the Union,
0HABLE8TOM. 8. 0., May 28th, 1846.
I havoexamined a great varioty of Glasson manufac
tured by ProfuFHor M. I) HIN H A HUT, aud in justice to the
Professor must say, that bia Glasses al - of a superior
quality, adapted to meet the wants of almost every eye,
where the vision is in any way imperfect. * The Profes
sor selected for mo a pair of his Australian Crystal
GlasBCB wlik h aro of a ve?, superior quality and work?
niauebip, rendering vision very distinct, almost as per
fect as in youth. I yield thiB testimony in favor of the -
Professor's Glasses most cheerfully.
K. GEDDINQ8, M. D.
I cheerfully concur in the opinion abovo expressed at
tbo valuo of Professor BERNnAUDTS' Glasses, and tholr
adaptabUlty to alldefocta of vision, and also to his skill
and judgment in adapting the glass to each special im
perfection. II. VV. DHSAUBSURE, M. D.
CHARLESTON, S. O, May 28th, 1866.
I do most willingly bear my testimony in favor of the
superiority o( the Australian Crystal-single and don?
bio vision spectacles over all other kinds. They are
constructed upon the best established aud understood
principles of optics, and moir adaptation to tho human
eye in its different conditions of vision ia so perfect, as
to render Bight easy without effort. In my opinion,
nono others should he used since the eyes once used to
those do not seem to grow old, and by having a focus
at any point of the surface, they appear to rest o'er the
eyes to their youthful energy.
T. L. 0G1EB, U. D.
CHARLESTON. 8. C, May 28th, 1866.
I havo examined Professor BERNHARDTS' very com?
piolo assortment of Hpoctacles and Lenses. They are
better adapted than any I have before se* n to remedy
the imperfection of vision that can bo bencfltted by the
use of Glasses. The pureness and clearness of the Crys
tal used, is an item worthy of special attention, as I can
testify from personal experience. I recommend Profes
sor Uiti-i-AniiT with confidence and great cheerfulness,
to the patronage of the puollo.
