we did not count sufficiently on the weath?
er-cock character of that policy. Tlie
Premier was hardly in his crave before the
Cabinet reversed the decision which he
and Manteuffel had procured and adopt?
ed the plan of Radowitz?and adopted
it too, in earnest. In fact, the execution of it
is already considerably advanced, and ere
this hour the whole available regular force
of Prussia is under arms. This includes
hav ?-erved their time in the ordinary
army and have passed into the reserve;
they still remain enroll- .1 for service, and
are regularly assembled f< r drill a fortnight
yearly, and every second year a month.
In case of war they become again a part of
the regular force, and serve like other parts
-of the army. By means of this arrange?
ment Prussia has hitherto figured as a
when ai! parts of it are calh d out is about
600.000 men. giving 450,000 for active
operations and 150,000 to occudv theuarri
?ons of the Kingdom.
Now we have no id. a that the Govern?
ment mean to make v. ar anv more than
they have done hitherto. They know as
well as ever that Democracy will follow in
the track of every advancing column and
snatch the fruit of victory or defeat alike
They are assured that however such a war
may turn out as far as the fighters are con?
cerned, the spoils will be carried off by the
common antagonist of both parties. There?
fore they will try to avoid ii at whatever
cost, even the surrender of their own ambi?
tion and the humiliation of Prussia. This
they have already shown agai-i and again.
On the other hand the people of Prussia,
and of all Germany as well,?are in da?
rned with thirst for war. They feel
most bitterly the disgrace which the Gov
i eminent was about to inflict on them, and
1 have now grasped their arms with frantic
i eagerness. The insolent demands of Aus
i tria, the dictation of Russia lire them with
ardor almost irresistible. They have no
fear of Democracy. They care not for the
vague form.- that tow< r like avenging fu?
ries above the whirlwind of the on-coming
contest, threatening a terrible requital for
the crimes of Kings, the -laughter of noble
defenders of liberty, and the plunder of the
patient masses. Their sole anil absorbing
wish is to wipe of]' the disgrace of Germa?
ny, to crush the insolence of foreign ty?
rants. And this impulse seems so gene?
ral and enthusiastic that it may well be
doubtod whether it can be checked or sup?
pressed. The Ministry arc now at the
i mercy of the rnomcut, for any accident, tri?
fling in itself, may begin the war which
they and all their like have so long antici?
pated w ith fear and trembling.
Austria on her part is in a desperate con?
dition. Already past the verge of bank?
ruptcy she has no time to lose if she would
make good her pretensions to predominance
in Germany. Her army cannot long be
maintainc 'unless by some means she gains
new strength. She must do what, she has
to do speedily. She has nothing to lose
and everything to gain. Moreover she can
keep her soldiers more cheaply in an ene?
my's country than at home. She is then
all ready for the struggle. Bavaria goes
with her hoping to grow great on the ruins
of-Russia, anil W?rtemberg and Saxony
will do the same. For the huge army of
Prussiu stands behind them and the strong
hand of the Czar pushes them forward.
Such, very briefly stated, is the condition
of this whole matter. The probabilities
seem much more in favor of war than we
have before supposed, not because the poli?
cy of the Governments has changed, but
because the Prussian people are in anus and
cannot easily be restrained. Still Frederick
William, Manteuffel and their coadjutors
will spare no effort and shrink from no
.ba.senc.-s in order to escape the danger, und
it is quite possible that they may succeed.

The steamboat Gayoso, a Memphis and Ar?
kansas packet, while lying nt tho former place,
caught lire near the stern, und was soon so much
consumed that it was necessary to scuttle ami
sink her. The flames spread to the steamboat
Swallow, an old stern-wheel boat, which was also
destroyed. The Gayoso belonged to Capt. Timms
and was insured tor $8,000, The Swallow was
worth about $2,000. A new hull, prepared for
the old Swallow, wns saved by the aid of the
steamer Swallow, which towed it out of the way.
Three of our largest Western steamers have

will also probably bo railed. The Griffin Yeat
man, we learn, sprung her plank while lying in

water in her hold, which had nearly been pumped

Loss of Life and Property.
Louisville, Saturday, Nov. :;o.
One of the most appalling and destructive tor
undoes which has been experienced in the Mis?
sissippi Valley for several years, occurred about
2 o'clock in the afternoon.
It swept over the town of Cape Girardeau, ?
Mo., situated on the Mississippi river, just below
St. Louis, and demolished some seventy or eighty
buildings, man) of them the finest and principal
business houses in the place.
The Baptist and Catholic Churches, and the 1
Catholic Convent were destroyed.
Two of the '.urge and splendid telegraph masts
belonging to the St. Lauis ami New Orleans Tel?
egraph Companies were cracked, shivered, aud
brought to the ground with as much ease as though
they had been pipe stems.
The steamboat Saranae, No. 2, which had just j
rounded to at the wharf, had her upper works
completely blown oil', and several persons on her
were severely injured, and some, it is probable,
were drowned.
The wharf boat wns likewise blown from her
mooriigs, and almost irreparably iujured.
In order that you may judge of the tremendous
violence of the storm. 1 will state that a cow was
unceremoniously lifted off her feet on terra firma,
and deposited in the top of a tree. 00 feet from
the ground.
The loss of life, by this awful visitation, can?
not as yet be ascertained, but it is certainly very
great, as numbers are doubtless buried beneath
the ruins of the fallen buildings. There are also
a great many persons who are seriously injured,
and some of them are so crippled and maimed
that they will never recover from the effects.
The town is literally torn in pieces, and looks
truly wo-begone. Many citizens, who were this
morning to be st eti with light hearts and smiling
faces, are to-night wrapped either in the arms of
death, cr else are weeping for their friends who
have been thus untimely swept away.
The Lnic Fatal Kallrond Accident.
Batavia 1 N. V. Saturday, Nov. 30.
The man w ho was yesterday killed, by the col?
lision between the express train from Buffalo and
the emigrant train from Rochester, was an emi?
grant on his way to the West. He had a child in
his arms, which escaped without injury. The
persons who were injured will all recover. The
train going West was under slow motion ; the
other was making ordinary time, but on an in?
clined plane of thirty feet to a mile at the point
where the collision occurred, a reverse carve, and
a piece of wood prevented the Engineer from see?
ing the approach of a train for some distance.?
The Engineers and firemen of both trains jumped
off before the collision, and thereby escaped.

The inhabitants of Selkirk were in a partial state
of revolt against usurpations and restrictions im

Company, and unless something is done by the
British government to relieve their grievances it
is thought that an open eruption will ultimately
take place. Emigration from the English to the
American possessions in that <jaarter, was on the
increase, and from ti small trading post, Pembina,
the American settlement has risen to a place of
some importance, and now contains, us by the re?

Correspondence of Tho Tribune.
Baltimore, Thursday, Nov. 2??P. M.
The proceedings of the State Reform Conven
tion at Annapolis attract much of the attention of
the public, especially politicians. The formation
and composition of the Committees appointed to
take into consideration the several branches of
business proposed to be considered, does not give
satisfaction to the Reformers. Many of the Com'
mittees are so constituted that unfavorable re?
ports on the principal subjects of Reform are al?
most certain?yet that cannot control the entire
sense of the majority of the members of the Con?
vention. That every clog will be thrown in the
way to defeat it, there is no manner of doubt:
Riol the Anti-Reformers of the little Counties only
wish to ascertain the most practicable mode of
doing so, to immediately carry it out. Let Re?
form, however, be refused to the extent desired
by the people, by this Convention, and the " Oppo?
sition" will make such a clean sweep of the State
that it will require years to ever overcome them.
One good resolution has been adopted by the
Convention in calling for information in regard to
the present lottery system. If the agents and
managers only give truthful reports, not only of
the statistics of the system, but also of its moral
results in the community, there would be no
hesitation on tne part of members in sweeping it
from the State. A more deplorable system of
gambling never was invented and legalized on
the face of the earth; or one that has ruined more
men and carried grief to more firesides. Stand j
in the vicinity of one of these legalized "hells" iu ;
our city on any day, and note the class of persons
who risk their money in the faiiaeious hope of ;
becoming suddenly rich and independent, and |
you will see many men supporting the system
who have families at home wanting the pooreJt
necessaries of life. Many, many who once boast
ed of a competence, in the desire to obtain more ;
without labor, have risked their patrimony from
time to time, until they have been beggared.
More misery and suffering has been entailed upon .
families by this accursed lottery' system, tnan
men, living where such things do not exist, could
be induced to believe. But yet the State per- i
mits it for the sake of the small amount of reve
nue it yields the Treasury! It is earnestly to be j
hoped that one of the Reforms made will be the
total abolishment of the whole system in the ,
Another good move is in reference to prohibit?
ing the issue of notes under the denomination of
?5 in the State, and the circulation of similar '?
notes issued out of the State. We are now flood?
ed with a ragged, ami iu many instances worth?
less, currency, which too frequently causes heavy
loss to the poorer classes of our citizens. Such a
prohibatory law will meet with uni'/ena! favor
from ail classes.
The subjects of Slavery, Emancipation or Colo?
nization, have not been introduced into the Con?
vention : yet when it gets fully under way they
wiil probably meet with some consideration?es?
pecially that of Colonization.
If any practicable means can be devised by
which to rid the State of the vast surplussage of
free blacks with which it is tilled, I have no doubt
but that it will meet with favorable action. There
Is an evident desire and intention to remove them
in some way or othgr, and it is not at all impro?
bable that the most stringent measures will be
I adopted in reference to their conduct, so at tea it

a steamer to Havana, and we suggest the possi?

at our Opera House. A ttrst class tenon is a treat
we have never yet enjoyed, and though it i> not

The Pc.'eyite Trial \t Boston,?The bear?
ing on the exceptions to the presentment against
Rev. Mr. Prescct: was terminated on Wednesday.
Yesterday morning the opinion of the Court was
pronounced. They unanimously sustained the
fifth exception; and as that annulled the entire
presentment, they gave no opinion on the other
exceptions. His exception was that the alleged
violations of practice and doctrine were not set 1
forth with sufficient certainty. Mr. Dana, counsel
for Mr. Prescott, then offered to consent that the
Standing Committee should make an entire new
presentment, under the form of an amendment, so i
as to prevent delay and to retain the present tri- |
bunal. His offer was declined by the Committee,
on the ground of doubt as to their canonical au- !
thority. Mr. Prescott then offered to the Court |
a written statement, setting forth bis continued
adhesion to this Church, and renewing the decla- |
ration of his belie! m its doctrines, and submission ,
to its discipline. This statement the Court de?
clined to receive, as being no part of its judicial
proceedings. . The Court tUimfig
