Th? Threatened Trouble tn Karo pe.
The news brought by thc steamer I
Belgian, yesterday, presents two
phases ol the threatened Austro
Prussinn difficulty, one of which cer?
tainly might be interpreted to mean
?war, and the other wearing au aspect
of prospective peace. Prussia and
Austria have put themselves upon a
?war footing. Great military prepara?
tions are advancing in both countries.
This points to a warlike issue. Aus?
tria, meantime, is willing, it appears,
to refer the questio vexata of the right
of property in the Duchies to a Eu?
ropean congress. This would seem
to indicate a peaceful solution of the
difficulty. The English papers fore?
see a speck of war. The Times, in?
deed, declares that it is inevitable;
but in the absence of more positive
news, wo must deal with the proba?
bilities. We are inclined to think
that Austria looks to an ultimate com?
promise at the time that she is pre?
paring for war. The supremacy of
the two leading powers in the Ger?
man Confederation-Austria and
Prussia-is the real question at issue
in this quarrel about the Duchies.
I Prussia has probably the strongest
j grip upon Holstein, but Austria is not
likely to surrender her claims with?
out a quiifpro quo -say, for example,
a certain sum of money, which may be
the smallest part of the arrangement,
and the most essential one -that cf a
guarantee that she shall receive pro?
tection and support in case nay diffi?
culty should occur with Russia in thc
Danubian principalities, or in the di?
rection of thc Bosphorus, which may
arise at any tirm\. This is probably
the result which Austria anticipates
from a European congress. It can?
not be expected that she will surren?
der her rights in the matter without
a compromise favorable to her inter?
ests. The smaller German powers
are evidently averse toa war between
the two Titans of the confederation,
and equally indisposed to hare the
quarrel settled by the intervention of
other nations. They argue that the
national sentiment of Germany would
be broken up either by war or inter?
vention, and that, therefore, general
! interests, and not party considera?
tions, should influence the actiou of
both countries. "When the two
shall have mutually weakened each
other, and tho conqueror shall think
the moment come to reap the fruits
of his victory," says the Munich
Gazelle, "the foreigner will step ??
and claim the prize." Therefore,
while these views prevaU, we are dis?
posed to think that the difficulty in
Central Europe will be ultimately
settled without an appeal to the arbi?
tration of the sword, despite the hos?
tile attitude assumed by the two
powers interested in the Holstein
question.-New York Herald.
RADICAL LOOIO.-Butler thought
he made a good point when he used
the following language in speaking of
the negro troops: "Who shall say
j that such men, so willingly periling
I their lives to save the country, are
not fit to take part in the choosing of
their own rolers and in enacting their
own laws in the country which they
have helped to save from their rebel?
lious foes?" Very well. But putting
aside the important fact that this
"help" was largely due to the draft,
and to enormous bounties, and to
substitutes from Massachusetts, we
find the logic of this about as good as
that to which old Sam. Johnson ob?
jected on having his attention called
to the vigor of the line "who rules
o'er freemen should himself be free."
"Yes," returned the logical old bear,
i;just as true as this, 'who slays fat
oxen should himself be fat.' " But?
ler's reasoning won't do. Let him
quit logic and give ns something
else -an essay, for example. "Life
in a Bottle," or "Woman and Her
Oppressors," would suit Iiis calibre.

HEAVY. DEFALC ATION OK A CHICAGO
BROKER.-A despatch from Chicago,
! dated the 4th, says:
There is some excitement n< finan?
cial circles, caused by tho defalcation
of B. H. Badger, a stock broker and
gold speculator of this city. The
immediate cause of his failure is re?
ported to be losses sustained by thc
j decline in gobi. The principal suf?
ferers are merchants, and the Second
j National Bank of this city, who pur?
chased from Mr. Badger, yesterday,
New York exchange to the amount of
$23,000, for which Mr. B. promised
to bring gold to the amount of $20,
(XXI as security for payment of drafts
on New York, but which promise he
failed to keep. Besides these drafts
there arc other checks outstanding.
