nu?ucees*ful; and the diplomatic nott? of Prussia, being
?Maided u a Lt-oat hr Amil,? elicited warlike repli?e.
and thus th? present crinia was precipiuted. On June 1,
I ?beti, the Auitrian repr?sent?t ive in the Federal Diet of
Frankfort itated that his government had endeavored in
vain to como to an arrangement with Prusaia concerning
tho duchies, and would now leave the matter in the hand,
of the Confederation. The I'rusaian government main?
tained that thii itep of Austria was a violation of a
convention between the two powers concluded on Jan. 16,
1804. itipuUting that all latan arrongemenls of the affairs
of the diichiei ihould be dependent upon a mutual under?
standing between the tWB powers, .tiki especially that the
taeeanaae questiou should lu? settled by mutual accord.
Piasata, therefore, declared the Convention of ?ostein
abolished, and at the date of our latest advicei, June 7, it
was expected that Prussian troops would at once march
into Uolatein. In case of a formal declaration of war, it ii
presumed that the Austrian troops in Uolatein will fall
eack into llanover.
C. Tho Duchy of Limburg (896 square miles, _lfi,5?0
inkaeitaatt), sud the Orana Duchy of Luxemburg i990
square miles iiiiil II7J-BI inhabitautsi are connected with
the crown of Hollantr, but at the same time are members
of the Qerttan Confederation. Tho connection of Lim?
burg is, however, but nominal, the inhabitants being
Dutch and not Oermaus. Tho Oovernment of Holland,
therefore, demands ita separation from the Oerman Con
f< deration, and this question was to have come before the
I'cace Cu Ornan at I'ari?. t'pon the impending war it
is not likely to hare unv important in?uonce.
D. Concentration of Prussian troops in Silesia.
II Cou.entration of Austrian troopi in Bohemia and
QtUeta.
THE POSITION Ot THE ABMIEB.
Moth the l'russian and Austrian Government's have
forbidden the publication of detailed accounts of tho move?
ments of troops. It is, however, well known that both
lowers hare concentrated their main forces along the
frontier of the Kingdom of Saxony. Prussia is believe,
lo hnvo about -00,000 mon betweeo G?rlitt and Neusa
in Silesia, and Austria to have moro more than 300,000
mea ready to march into Saxony and Silesia. The
armies are in positions which leave it doubtful
whether Saxony or Silesia will witneM the first
battle, but in either case tho movements of the
two armies fwill begover tne same territory which the
campaigns of Frederick the Oreat have made memorable,
and it i. not likely that tho lessons taught by that match?
less soldier in tho tremendous struggle which made Sileiia
a peer?an af Prussia, ?ill be forgotten by either army. It
i? (tua out that Austria hopes to recover tho territory for
whose km Marie Fiaren weat ead fought in rain,'but
Bndarkk maintained it then against all Europe in arms.
During tho Seren Vears war, the population of Prussia was
5,011,000, whilo lOO.OOn.OOO of people were handed agsinit
her. Prussia cannot possibly be coiled on now to fate uny

The Pana Moniteur of Juno 4 says:
" The reply of Austria, on the subject of a Conference,
contains certain reservations which must be examined be?
fore the meeting of the Plenipotcntiariea.
" The negotiationa to which thtic reierraliona will gira
rise will necessarily retard for a few days the proposed
meeting of tho Conference."
The Conttitutionnel of June5 saya-. " We know already
the impression produced in London and St. Petersburg by
tho Auitriun reply to tho invitation to a Conference. II
was immediately asked, not without reason, what adran?
fago could bo expected from a Conference if Auitna per?
stated in ber present determination ? According to the
reservations made by that Power, two questions would
disappear from the programme. We deeply regret the
attitude assumed by the Vienna Cabinet. Withoxt doubt,
each Power regards its interest from its own point of new,
but it appears to na that Europe had aright to eipect
othor determinations from a great conservativo Power.
