PRUSSIA AND AUSTRIA.-Prussia has
forwarded a circular despatch to the
minor German States, laying stress
ugon the inefficiency of the appeal to
the Federal Diet to settle the present
conflict. The despatch further poiu ts
oaf tho necessity of the various States
biking up a dormite position on one
side or the other in, the struggle
?which the armaments of Austria seem
to render more and more imminent.
The despatch accuses Austria of

Gastem and assumed a threatening
attitude.' It expresses doubts as to
the power of tho Confederate States
to carry out their good intentions
towards Prussia, in the relative state

and points out the necessity which
has arisen for introducing reform a.

The Berlin journals represent that
the Austrian armaments and prepara
tions are very extensive, and some of
them admit that, in view of the Aus?
trian preparations, orders may havo
been given by Prussia to make such
preparations as may be indispensable.
Vienna advices assert that Austria
has determined to put an end to the
provisional state of affairs in the
Duchies, and, if necessary, will pro?
pose that the question be referred to
a European congress.
The Independence Beige, of the 20th,
publishes intelligence from Weimar,
according to which the King of Prus?
sia gave his consent, on the 26th, to
certain military arrangements which,
although only of a preliminary na?
ture, indicate that war is almost in?
The French Canadians held a meet?
ing at Clinton Hall lately in favor
of the annexation of Canada to the
-United States and in opposition to

Resolutions to this effect were passed,
and a "committee of annexation" was
