THE KAISER AND BISMARCK.
An Appeal That the Man of Blood and
Iron Received Ungraciously.

patch from Berlin that the kaiser, desir
ous of sparing the feelings of Bismarck,

was produced in Hamburg, to take the op
portunity of visiting Bismarck, and re
monstrating with him on his course in
talking over affairs of state, and attacking
tne Kaiser ana his policy. The presence
of Duke Ernest in Hamburg was supposed
at the time 1 1 be connected with the pro
duction or his opera, and bis visit to Bis
marck attracted no attention,
