From a speech delivered by Mr. Lin

peace, whose joyous expression cannot be
By Ihese recent successes, tho re-inauguration
of the National Authority, HE
CONSTKUCTION, which hu had a large j
share of thought from the first, is pressed I
much more eloscly upon our attention.
I have been thown a let
ter on this subject, supposed to be an able
one, in which the writer expresses regret
that my mind has not seemed to bo defi
nitely fixed on tho question whether the
seceded States, so called, are in the Un
ion or out of it, Whatev
er it may hereafter become, that question
is BAD as tho basis of a controversy, and
good for nothing si all A MKUELY
PERNICIOUS ABSTRACTION. We
all agree that tho seceded States, so call
ed, aro out of thcii proper practical rota
tion with tho Union, and that tho SOLK
OBJECT of the Government civil and
military, in regard to those States, is to
again get them into that proper practical
relation. 1 bclicso it ts not only poMi
ble, but in fact easier to do this without
deciding, or even considering whether
these States havo ever been out of the
Union than with it. Finding themselves
safely AT HOME, U would Ire utterly
immaterial wbothcr they had ever been
abroad. Let us all JOIN in doing the
ACTS necessary to RESTORING tho
proper practical relations between these
States and the Union, and each forvcrcr
AFTER indulge his own opinion wheth-
er, in doing the acts, he brought the
States from without INTO the Union, or
only gave tbem proper assistance, they
never having bceu OUT of it.

War in Europe.
The complexion of the last news from
Europe is cxcccdioplv warlike. Tho
general impression is that nearly all Eu
ropo will be-involved in a' war which will
bjeak out immediately.
Tnc quarrel over the spoils of victory
between Prussia and Austria seems to
have got to a pass that leave: no altera
ative but a fight. Prussia wishes to ap
propriate all the fruits of the victory, in
violation of good faith and to satisfy i
greed fcr extended empire. Austria eon
ceives her own position to be endangered
by the pretensions of Prussia, and is an
gry at the treatment slio has received
from the latter. Between the two is
contest for position in Germany. There
has beon a variety of negotiations bctwocn
tho two powers, with no result except to
increase the broil. Even at the last dates
negotiations were gaing forward, with the
understanding in some quarters that Bis

who, a day or two before, had urged him
in the 11101 preying terms to declare his
willingness to nbidc ty the treaty of On?-
teiu, and avmd the nd'CSMty of u war with
Austria. Such a turn to the difficulty
was, however!' anticipated by a few of tho
If tho iuiiuincncu of a war could be in
fertcd from the extent and urgency of
the preparations for it there cau be no
doubt of its beiii'' close at hand. By a
royal decree at Berlin the three corps
d'armcc, which bad been but partially
affected by the two preceding orders, nre
mobilized. After this step the whole of
tho Prussian regular force will be ready
to take the field in two or three weeks.
tho main army, if the aspect of affairs
docs not improve, is to consist of about
250,000 men, under the command of tho
King, with General Moltlca as tho chief
of the Staff. It will ce so dsposcd as to
hinder the Austrians advancing upon
Berlin by way of Saxony. Another ar
my of about 120,000 men will be stationed
in Southwestern Silesia
Tho formidable character of tho Aus
trian preparations may be gathered from
the fact, while tho main armv. !whose
strength will be about equal to Prusbis,
is osdcmbling on the western frontiers of
Bohemia, a fecond body is being con
centrated in tho eastern counties of that
Kingdom, and a third to tho west of Cra
cow, ino latter aasalrcaay acaclicd the
number of 40,000 men. Beckoning up
tho sum total of tho available forces, it
appears that Austria and Prussia will
confront each other with between 300,000
and 400,000 incu on cither side. Over
and above these, Austria hits 180,000 free
to move on Italy. 'JUie Austrian muster
of troops is somewhat ahead of the Prus
sian: but while tho more exposed among
the Prussian fortresses aro already in a
state of defence, much remains to be done
in the Austrian strongholds in Bohemia
and Morovia. Accounts like these como
by way of Hcrlin. . From Vienna, we
hear that Francis Josoph can bring iuto
tho field 000,000 men and 1,000 guns.
Of this force 150,000 will be left to do
fend the Quadilateral and the Austrian
possessions in Vicntia. Thn Austrian
army is reported, from tho same quarter,
to bo high spirits, and full of confidenco,
though some of tho oficcrs rcurct that
tbey will be obliged to use their weapons
against men wiiu wuoia nicy uoi long ago

Italy has been for a long time intrcas
ing her armaments and enlarging her ar
my, with a view to operations for recov
ering Vcnetin. Sho lias now got togeth
er an army of over 300,QOO men, and has
contracted an enormous debt, which al
most insures her bankruptcy. What
would huvo been the effect of these Ital
ian menaces oh Austria, had no disturb
ing causes intervened, is matter for con
jecturc. It is said that the Austrian Em
peror, perhaps lor this return, and per
haps finally convinced that his retention
of Vciictia was most ungracious, had near
ly made up his mind to codn it to Italy
for a pecuniary indemnity. This may bo
so, but the surfaco appearances show a re
solve to maintain possession of Vcnctia.
Tho Italians, with their southern ar
dor, nre especially demonstrative in their
preparations for war. There was a fer
ment "from the Alps to tho Apennines."
"Vcnctia or Death I" is the universal mot
to. The principal communes of the coun
try aro oflering bounties for heroism to
the conscripts from their cities. As for
example, Naples will givo $100 to any
Neapolitan soldier who may capture a flac:
and another city offers a pension of SCO
a year for the same success. Tho streets

GREAT FIRE IN ST. LOUIS.
Tho largest fire that has occured In tho
city for eeveral months, took place on
Saturday afternoon. It originated in the
cellar at tho hack part of Peter E. Blow'
extensive drug store, on Mais Street, two
doors south of the corner of Olive, and to
tally destroyed that building, and dam
aged the corner houso considerably. The
origin of the fire is said to have been as
Ono of the porters was drawing somo
varnish from a barrel in tho cellar, when
in somo unfortunate way the lard oil lamp
was brought too near, the drippings from
the barrel caught fire, and in a few mo
racnts tho whole lower part of the store
was enveloped in flames.
In the confusion resulting from the fire,
and the lato hour to which it prevailed,
wo aro unable to give the exact amounts
of individual losses ; but so far as wo havo
been ablo to ascertain before going to
press, tnoy will foot np as follows: Peter
E. Blow, 8150,000 ; B. P. Studlcy & Co
