I hanks to a tine bracing east wind, the number
of cafes of cholera have sensibly diminished, and
with them much of the alarm that has pervaded
the public mind. Sueh a season is the harvest of
quacks, who have been ioisting their nostrums,
by wholesale, on the notice of the timid. Large
bills, posted on the walls, with a prominent invitation
to " read this," set forth in glowing detail
the asserted efficacy of some specific, known only
tcvthe advertiser, who offers to indemnify humanity
from the threatened scourge, at a reasonable
rate. Generally speaking, the authorities in the
various towns throughout the kingdom, are exercising
great vigilance and energy to mitigate its
effects, should it visit their localities. In the
meantime, tne cautions of the Board of Health
against the use of vegetables and fruits have completely
laid prostrate the trade of the green-grocer
and fruiterer. The former have been depreciated
in value fully two-thirds, whilst Lisbon grapes,
which usually bring about twenty cents per pound,
are now selling as low as six. It has lately been
rrmiirked that cleanliness is vaccination for the
cholera. Id connection with this remark, may
be mentioned the commencement of the Marylebone
bathe and wash-houses, which are to be
handsomely built iti the Italian Btyle, at a cost of
sixty-two thousand tour hundred dollars. Like
four others already in operation in London, it will
be self-supporting, ana originates with the wellintentioned
and humane rich. As many readers
may not be informed as to their economy, it may
be remarked that they consist of three dapartnients,
namely, baths for males and females, and
a department where poor women can take their
clothes to wash, in convenient troughs, with the
aid of warm water, drying stoves, and smoothing
irons, for one penny an hour. The baths consist
ol three classes. tor a warm one the respective
charges are four, eight, and twenty-five cents.?
Privacy is secured by each bath occupying a separate
room, which is scrupulously kept. Two
cl?an warm towels are included in the foregoing
prices. The nunber of persons who use them is
enormous; to much so that the applications far
exceed the accommodation. Their use is not
confined to the laboring poor; for whilst they avail
themselves of those of the lowest price, the shopman
and clerks of the next?tne higher class of
trades-people or gentry?pay each their twentyfive
cents, which augments the minimum price,
and makes the establishment not only selfsupporting,
but remunerative. It is not to be
supposed that these are charities, as they are now
erected and conducted under the authority of an
act of the legislation, whicli empowers parishes
to raise money for the purpose, on the security of
the rates. So far, even at the present low scale of
charges, they have yielded somewhere about
five per cent per aunum interest, on the outlay,
after every expense of attendance and tear
and wear has been deducted. In Liverpool
one has for some time existed, and in Hull
the corporation are building one on a magnificent
scale. Should business or pleasure bring any
one who reads these lines, to London, a visit
to the new bath* near Charing Cross is urged,
with a view of thau; extension to other countries.
With the brief trial thev have had. thev have
worked benefits of the most salutary kind. The
habits oi cleanliness they have induced, have led
to improved morals and happiness. With their extension,
and abstinence from the use of intoxicating
drinks, the working classes of this country
might elevate themselves in a very btief period to
a position of much greater comfort.
Mr. Crosse, the great galvanic experimenter,
has brought before the notice of the public a new
process for purifying water. Two cylinders, one
of sheet iron, the other ofzinc, are immersed in a
jar of porous earth, in which is poured the turbid
water. When electrical action commences, the
acid properties are attracted to the zinc and the
alkaline to the iron, to both of which they adhere,
whilst the earthy matters are precipitated. This
plan may be scientilic, but its merits do not appear
to be such as to supersede the use of the ordinary
filter. Those who like a good light will
be glad to learn that the obstacles have been overcome
which have hitherto prevented electricity
being made available to the pur|K>ses oi illumination.
Up to within the last few weeks, an unsustained
light could only be procured. At the Western
Scientific Institution, during the last week, a
mall appai atus was exniDiiea, nom wmcn issueu
a pure and intense bright ligMt, which cast ten
large argent gas burners completely into the shade.
The gentleman in charge of this novelty stated
that whilst the original cost would be trifling, its
inventors considered that the light would only cost
one twelfth the present price of gas. He was however,
restrained from further explanation, lest the
interests of the inventors should be compromised
in the patent they are now procuring from the
government. On the lecture table was a small
galvanic battery, the wires of which were put in
connexion with an ornamental pillar li'?e the stem
of a solar lamp. The conjectures hazarded in the
room, seemed to lead to the conclusion that the
current of electricity passed through two pieces
ol charcoal, which foim the two poles of the circuit,
which are carefully excluded from all access
of external air. Further particulars must shortly
appear, which in due time will be laid before the
M. Cousin, in the Journal dii Snvans, calls the
attention of the philosophic and literary world to
the discovery of the manuscripts of lloger Bacon
in the Abbey of Corbey. They are now placed in
the library of Amiens. They consist of one hununit
tw ni-t v- f h ri-(' Olrels of Yl'lllim. Tne
writing is that oi the fourteenth century, and
abounds with abbreviations. They are principally
devoted to an examination of the metaphysics
and philosophy oi Aristotle.
The long expected Assyrian marble?, embarked
on board the Juno, have at length arrived, and
are safely deposited in the lintish Museum, in
fifty packages. Ia modern sculpture, a bust of the
late George Stephenson, the engineer, is to be
erected by the London and Hirnungiiain Railway
Directors, in some suitable building on their line,
as a testimony ot Ins valuable services to tlieir undertaking.
The political admirers of the late Lord
George Hentinck propose to perpetuate Ins memory
in marble, by placing his full length figure in
Westminster Abbey. While speaking ol works of
art, may be mentioned the removal, during the
present week, to the National Gallery, ol the
munificent gilt of Mr. Vernon to the nation. It
consists ot one hundred and fifty paintings and six
pieces of sculpture, by the most eminent l inglish
artists. Government, ever tardy to ai>preciate
liberality such as that shown in the present instance,
nave barely tendered Mr. Vernon a cold
and formal expression of its thanks. It is from
this cause that the Louvre, in l'aris, contains its
treasured Mtirillo Gallery. Ten years ago it was
in nu^innu, hiiu mr. oianuimi, h priYitir uriiurman,
its owner. He offered it to the government,
but wanted some acknowledgment in returnnot
a place or pension, but a baronetcy, and to !>e
called Sir Frank Hall Standish. They refused hi*
otter on such a condition. Being in indifferent
health, and having no family, lie made his will
anew, and leit his Murillos to Louis Philippe, in
trust lor the French people. No sooner was his
last testament made known, than the paintings
crossed the channel, to the infinite regret of the
English people.
The programme of tne evening's proceedings
for the annual benefit of the Manchester Athe<
DH'um, has appeared. Lord Mahon, who is favorably
known tor his talent as a historian, is to
take the chair, which, in former years, was so
ably filled by Lord Morpeth, Dickens, ftc. The
Archbishop of Dublin is going to attend a second
time. Although the array of brilliant names fall*
short of former years, the meeting is looked
forward to with great interest.
Shakspeare latterly has been banished from
England. His " Hamlwt" has been translated at

It speaks favorably for the character of the Queen,
that t-he has expressed a deaire that due care
should be taken that the selection should only m?lode

Theatrical mnnn<icment has o! late proved a bad
*P< dilation in Kuyland, owing to the excessive
fletnuiids of performers. Mrs. Nesbitt and the
Furrens, tor instance, have latterly been taking
from Webster, Ht th? I Isymarket, between them,
twnty-nine thousand dollars a year. This is
treating him, as poor Sir Walter Scott said to
James italentyue, like h milch cow, and not aa a
hi ____________
man. At Covent Garden and Drury lane, the expense
at each house; every night, is near upon a
thousand dollars, whereas, with the first celebrities,
towards the middle and close oi the last
century, they were not half this sum. Garnck,
in his beet days, had only thirteen or fourteen dollars
a night; and, in later days, the famous Palmer
and his wife only ten, Mrs. Cibber twelve,
Signer Guntinelle, first singer, six; HignorGrimaldi
and wife, first dancers, fivu dollars per
night. Now-a-days, a singer or a dancer at a
tavern saloon, would scout such terms. The consequence
is, the stage loses patronage, and performers
lack employment. Witness the following
list of names awaiting engagements:?Messrs.
Brooks, Stuart, Anderson, Vandenhofi', Wm. Farren,
Mrs. "Warner, tore. Nesbitt, Miss H. Fawcet,
and Miss Cuahman. If nothing favorable turn
up, these parties intend opening a theatre in Picadilly.
Mr. Delafield, the brewer, who succeeded
Beale at Covent Garden, is said already, in a
year, to have lost a large fortune. Drury Lane,
too, soon make a bankrupt ot Jullien, and Webster,
at the Kaymarket, says that he loet thirty-six
thousand dollars in a few months. The Keqpe>-1
have seen the folly of such proceedings, and have
reduced their terms. The Jenny Lind furor remains
after her in the provinces. At Dublin,
twenty-six thousand dollars were paid in four
nights at the theatre by a gentry who did not contribute
?ne farthing to the passengers of the Ocean
Monarch, three-fourths of whom were their countrymen.
The gentlemen ot Newcastle-on-Tyne
presented the syren with a gold tea-pot, and ailother
coterie in the same town, determined not to
be outdone, gave her a splendid enamelled watch
and appenduges, once the property of the young
Duchess of Montpensier. How it got out of her
grace's custody is not said, though it is open to
surmise that the necessities of royalty sought aid
at the relentless handB of " mine uncle.'7 The
Edinburgh Review, in speaking of Jenny Lind,
says thai she receives nine hundred and sixty dollars
tor a night's performance, two and a half of
which are the wages ot her lalmr, seven more the
profit on her acquired capital of knowledge and
skill, and the remainder is a rent derived from
those extraordinary powers of which nature has
given her a monopoly.
The existence ot the great sea serpent has
hitherto been a matter oi as much speculation in
the minds of many persona as who was the author
of Junius. The English papers have ever cast a
large share of ridicule on American versions ot
its existence. If the, account is to be believed, it
is no longer one of doubt, as various oi the crew
of her Majesty's ship Du'dalus have seen the
monster, and the fact has been communicated officially
to the Admiralty. As depicted in the
penny periodicals of the day, for the edification of
the million, it is an awful " sarpant," with a
dragon's head and a barbed tail, such as ancient
pictures represent Satan to be the owner of.
Connected with the political convulsions on the
continent ot Europe, has been the exnulsion of
the Jesuits from several of its Kingdoms and
States. Many have already found an asylum in
England, and il is estimated, on pretty good authority,
that no fewer than five hundred will take
up their abode in America, beyond the Rocky
mountains, there to found colonies and missions.
A part are already in the new world, and the remaining
portion either on their way, or preparing
for departure. As far as appealances are concerned,
the circumstance might not be generally
known, as the policy of this order is never to want
publicity. In a country like the States, they can
never become troublpfome. On the contrary,
wherever they settle, they will show an example
of exemplary industry and circumspection. In
these days of enlightenment, their religious tenets
and ascetic discipline are only bugbears to the
Weak-minceu fanatic, who ougln ratuer io prsy tor

From the Jesuits, turn to the Bible, the printing
of which, up to a late period, was a monopoly, in
the gift of the Crown. The Scotch establishment
of Sir David Hunter Blair has just been brought
to the hammer. The wnole material and stock
have been sold. The law that conferred this unjust
monopoly, to enhance the price of the Scri)>
lures, was sometimes evaded. The manner in
which it was done was to print notes at the bottom
of each page, with a convenient space for the
binder to cut them off, which was regularly done,
and then a Bible, similar to those of the monopolists.
was sold at half the price.
whilst discussing matters connected with religion,
may be mentioned a singular occasion Tor
calling into exercise the authority of the President
of the Wesleyan Conference in expelling a Minister
in Cornwall, from that society. The reverend
fentleman's delinquency was the assumption of a
eaid, a la Francaist. The President insisted oa
the lree use of the razor as the only means by
which he aould purge himself from hi8contumacy.
The paitor asserted the right of private judgment
in such matters?claimed the sanction of antiquity
in his favour, and referred with glowing enthusiasm
to the noble beardB of our forefathers, Moses
and Aaron, Uoth parties were inexorable and the
consequence is that the poor preacher is now in
Bearch of another rostrum, wliere his adornment
may escape the censure of a superior.
A paragraph is running the round of the papero
which holds forth Queen Victoria's good example
to young ladies as worthy of following during divine
service. Whilst in Scotland, Her Majesty
referred, it is said, with her own hands, to all the
passages quoted by the Minister, and mingled her
voice with that of the congregation in the psalmody
Singing with proper taste and feelihg has
at all times been considered a powerful means of
inspiring devotional feeling, but it has of late
years been a matter of regret among the educated
classes in Scotland, that the puritanical predilections
of the country have hitherto proved an obstacle
to the introduction of reallv good music into
the service ot the kirk. Some years ago aa attempt
was made by a minister in the south to introduce
an organ to remedy the defect; but an instant
clamor was raised against worshipping
God through the instrumentality of a pair of
In England, little is known by the public about
projected marriages, except those between members
ot lhe creat aristocratic families. An exception to
this rule now occurs, in the announcement of that
ot Miss Hudson, the daughter of the Railway
King, so calltd from the large share he holds in
English lines. The lady is eighteen, and it is presumed
will have an immense fortune, which, with
her hand, she has, or shortly will bestow on Mr.
Itundass, a young gentleman of moderate fortune,
and ancient family, in Scotland. The wedding
dresses and finery, which modern gentility denominates
a Iriwinau, is said to be perfectly unique,being
the most rrchcrcht productions of London and Pans.

Tl>e Civil War In Auatrlu.
[From the London Kxtminer J
The origin of the Austtian and Prussian monarchies
was the fact of their districts being considered
the outpotts of the German empire. The
Marquis ot Brandenburg and the Duke of Austria
were nobles appointed to military command, on
the frontier, against Sclavons, Huns, and Czecks.
Gradually absotbing the military power of the empire,
they became us ehiels : and t!ius the principal
teats of German power and dominion were
transferred from the centre of Germany and the
Gei mans to remote capitals, the population around
which were Sclavonic.
Hence has sprung the great difficulty of either
Prussia or Autsria righting themselves, alter
having stiuck upon the shoaNtf revolution^. Prussia
is embarrassed by the Pjuinh race of its western
province; Austria, by the Sclavonic hordes,
wnicli outnumber its liermeH population. No
mode could have been invented bo hkely to render
euch elements oi discord uncontrollable as the introduction
of universal suffrage. It ha* made of
Austria a perfect chaos.
Seme good has, indeed, arisen; grtnt good. The
national assemblies, composed in a great measure
stf peasants, have, at least, emancipated peasants,
abolished forced labor, tenure at will, feudal rents,
game laws, seignorial courts. But, having done
mis, the Sclavonic j>easant is satisfied, lie cares
not for civic rights, or jury law, of liberty of the
press, or any of those refined institutions, lie
has made his farm comfortable, and he wants to
go home to the farm, and leave politics to the
emperor or hi* ministers. The citizen tuid the
German, on the contrary,seek the deyeloperuent of
their civil rights, the completion of a charter, freedom
of all binds?of press, or p rson, of buying
and selling, of coming and going. Thus it is that
classes and races difler, ana the old governments
and military chiefs are seeking to take advantage
of it.
The King of Prussia, to do him justice, has pursued
a moderate and honorable course. He has
not excited Pole against Prussian, nor flattered
tke Sclavonianisni of the Silesian in order to make
him cut the throat of his Teutonic brother, the
Westphalian. Now, this is precisely what the
cuun anu uic Biair-Biiicu hi j\wsuiu uiive uone.
They have treated the different subject races like
so tnany puppets, employing one to beat the other.
They have made the Hungarian crush the Italian,
the German bombard the Czeck. They then stirred
the Croat against the Hungarian, and suborned the
Czeck to rise against the German. It has been
their aim to foster international hate, and they
have sedulously sown an immense crop of civit
war. in order to glean out of it some portion pf the
old lost sovereign authority. Instead of being a
Eastor to his subjects, the emperor acts as a veritale
wolf, worrying and tearing them to pieces.
The iact of tne Austrian court having pa.d and
incited .lellachich to march against tne Hungarians,
has been fully proved by intercepted and
published correspondence. Indeed, the untortu*
nate Latour confessed it; and, at the same time,
the same Court sent the Archduke Stephen ta pretend
to command the Hungarians against .lellachich,
of course, merely to betray them. No
wonder that the Hungarians distrusted Count
Lamberg, Bent to take the command, and complete
the treachery; and that they were impelled to
the horrible crime of immolating a brave officer.
Kossuth seems to have acted with wonderful
energy. This man, an advocate and a iournal
ist, alone refused to despair of Hungarian freedom
and independence When hia noble colleagues,
who began the revolution with him, one
by one deserted it?when even Deak, his colleage
of the middle class, shrunk back from hia
side, and proposed to bow to the Sclave?Kossuth
alone refused, and marched with the armed multitude
of Hungarians to battle. They defeated the
Croats, drove .Teliachic round the Plater-see, and
took numerous |Austrians captive, the most eminent
of whom, being convicted traitors, were
hanged. And the Hungarians have thus recovered
their old and wonted predominance.
Vienna at the same time responded to the cry of
Kossuth. There, too, the Germans were menaced
by the Slavonians in the assembly, as the
Magyars were threatened in the field. sympathy
united the two races, simultaneously threatened
by Sclavonism and the court; and the people rose
to prevent regiments being sent against the Hungarians.
This popular demonstration, a mere
burst of feeling, ended in an insurrection, which
ministers had not the sagacity to prevent, nor the
tact or courage to resist. Vienna then fell into
the power of the students, the mob, and the German
members of the assembly, the Sclavonian9
having withdrawn.
The more recent events, the march of
Kossuth, the withdrawal of Auersperg and
Jellachich, are known. Austria is divided
into two camps, the emperor and all the Slavonian
soldiers and regiments in the one, the
German and the Magyars of the valley of the
uanuDe in me oiner. j.ne peasantry nave risen
in the Landsturm, and, instead of their old loyally,
show their abhorrence of the Croats and their
cause. In such a state of things a sanguinary triumph
would be almost as fatal to tnc imperial
house as defeat. For the army is last dividing.
The Croats and Hungarian soldiers in Milan can
scarcely be kept from coming to blows, and the
late cenqtierors of Lombardy threaten to make it
a held for battle amongst themselves. Amidst all
this the Archduke John is said to have intervened,
as the chief of the central government of
Germany, to mediate between the popular party
and the court?between the^Sclavoman and the
German. Let us hope that he will succeed, and
prevent the terrible slaughter, the cruel action and
reaction, of the alternate fortunes ol civil war.
AfTalri of (he Polliti Province*.
[Kromtbe Berlin hotter*.]
The committee of the Chamber appointed to investigate
the reports laid before them by the Government,
hinting the necessity of prolonging the
state of siege at Posen, have come to a decision
that the necessity is not proved, and therefore \
General Pfuel must submit the queston to a vote ;
of the house. The report will be brought up on i
Tuesday, unless the Cabinet anticipates defeat by I
issuing an order of revocation. The Polish League, j
which is now actively engaged at Thorn, ana in |
the districts of West Prussia, will then remove its
head-quarters to Posen. The result may be anti- i
cipated. In the meantime, a Polish outbreak is
expected to take place at Cracow and in Gallicia, |
wnence uie Austrian troops have been moved to
join Windiechgratz corps marching upon the
Danube. It is most natural to expect that the
state of aflairs at Vienna, so favorable to a Polish
rising in both countries, should not be neglected. I
The people of Vienna may conquer, but then their !
victory will be sealed most probably by the loss of
Hungary, of Gallicia, of Cracow, and of Lombardy.
The Posen-Polish question, as anticipated in
yesterday's letter, has been carried in favor of the
non-separation of the Grand Duchy, and thence of
its non-incorporation with the Germanic Confederation.
This .result, determined by one vote only,
and after a most stormy discussion, is regarded as
an immense triumph by the Poles. The only Mm- i
ister who spoke against the amendment of Phillip,
was M. Kichmann. NeitherGeneralPfuel, nor any
of his colleagues, were in their pluces. It would be j
superfluous to follow the discussion ; but to make j
the subject more clear, it may be as well to give
the principal clauses and votes. After the preamble
of tne Constitution containing the King's
title reduced to the simple words?" We, Frederick
William, King of Prussia, hereby make i
known, <Vc.," comes the 1st article, 1st chapter, I
" All portions of the monarchy in their present
circumscription, form the territory of the Prussian
monarchy. This clause was carried by a large
majority, and consequently, unless a special Inw
be proposed and carried, the whole Duchy of Posen
will embrace, as heretofore, an integral part
of Prussia, but will not be included within the
territory of the Confederation. An amendment of
Brodowsky, proposing to give a separate Polish
organization to the duchy in virtue of the faculty
ottered by the Vienna treaty and subsequent acts,
was rejected. Then followed Phillip s amendment?"The
special rights accordsd to the inhabitants
of the Grand Duchy of Posen, when the
Grand Duchy of Posen was united wjth Prussia,
shall be secured to them. An organic law, to bo
nn Illlllffntrd nilllllllnniwMialv until tll? nr?a?nl
stitution, shall determine these rights more positively."
( pen closing the urns, the result was, 177 ayes
and 174 noes; majority in favor of the amendment,
3; but the majority being under 15, the vote by
name was demanded.> The result ot this was, 157
ayes, 1B4 noes; majority against the amendment,
7. This produced most naturally immense sensation
and uproar, as, if correct, it was evident that
ten persons had changed their vote. An explanation
then took place, when it turned out that a
mistake of exactly ten had been made in telling
the names, and that the exact result was, ayes 173,
noes 172; majority I. The consr^uence of the
adoption of the first section of the constitution
with Phillip's amendment will be, that the duchy
will not only remain undivided, but that the whole
will receive a social organization in the r-olish ;
s? nie. Now comes the question ol the tierman '
element. |

The catastrophe which has put an end to th
existence of the Provisional Government mus
we presume, have been foreseen, from the vei
first, by all who had a hand in setting it up. It
deed, the only apology for so preposterous an ei
terpnse lies in that temporary derangement of th

common with (he rest of our continental neigl

protecting powers, it was clear that there was n
room for effectual interference on their behalf, j
"protected State" is an invention of diplomatist!
dt vised for purposes amongst which the welfare <
the persons most nearly concerned has ccmmoi
ly no place. It is neither a nation nor a province
neither independent nor yet dependent; the mor
liberal its institutions, and the more elaborate it
constitutional system, the more keenly do thos
who live under it resent interference, and th
more painful is their sense that the whole is but
toy in the Brobdignag fingers which are constant
ly hovering over them under the pretence of she,
tering the fragile thing with officious protectior
The position is not a comfortable one; but so Ion
as the WallachiaRS remain in it, we fear thatthe
must submit to that Russian influence to which i
consigns them, and from which, indeed, we d
not Know that they could with advantage to then
selves be emancipated.
We must frankly confess, however, that, althoug
we do not entertain those feelings of hostility to
wards the great Northern Empire which are some
times ?uppoeed to be innate in the breast of ever
true Englishman, and are far from regarding thi
Czar as an ogre, whom it is the duty of all civil
ized European nations to watch, if possible, to ex
tirpate, we cannot, without an uneasy twinge o
two, see the foot of a Russian soldier again plant
ed on the banks of the Danube, or the fetters o
Russian domination riveted on the Danubian pm
vinces. The Danube is, and must ever be, th<
great highway of Eastern Europe ; it is the outle
of those vast districts to which we in the Wes
must look for our supplies of grain ; and waters
through a large part of its course, a country ricl
in.mineral ana agricultural wealth, in the develope
inent and distribution of which all the nations o
me vvuuinnu ait;, 111 a ^iruicr ur ir mm uegree, in
terested, Russia already possesses an amount o
control over the mouths of the river, which, bu
or h? proverbial superiority in diplomatic skil
pnd industry, she could never have been sufferec
to acquire.
A lew more strides, for which the agitated stati
of lhe neighboring countries may, we know no
how soon, afl'ord opportunities, would Buffice t
?ive her complete dominion over its channel.ivery
conjunction of circumstances which give
occasion for her interference on those debateabl
lands which skirt her southern frontier, must c
ecessity, from the ?ature of things, prove advai
tageous to her, and prejudicial to her decrepi
neighbor on the Dardanelles. The disproportio
of physical and moral strength is too enormous t
allow of its being otherwise. The pot de fer siu
the pot de terrr may both be rolling in the sam
direction ; but as often as they come in contact
the odds are that s?me damage befalls the weake
vessel. The dwarf who chose to go campaignin{
with a giant, might have foreseen what would b
the result of the pursuit of glory in such uneqtia
companionship?the one must needs get all th<
kicks, the other all the half-peace.
The only possible guaranty for the due repres
sion of that tendency to aggrandizement on th<
part of Russia, which her position renders inevi
table, is to be found in the existence of a compe
tent power occupying the local situation at presen
covered by the Austrian Empire. It is a matte
of the first importance that the upper section o
the stream should be in the hands of a nation civi
lized and thriving enough to set a due value oi
this important artery of commerce, and stroni
enough to enforce, if need be, its just claims to i
free navigation of the channel. From the Iroi
Gate upwards, we desire to see the Danube flow
ing through a populous and highly cultivate!
country, the territory of a State so considerable a:
to extort from the Court of St. Petersburg that re
sptct which will be only accord*d to a govern
ment whose hostility it has reason to dread, anc
whose friendship it is ambitious of conciliating
Considerations such as these have, we need hard
ly say, something to do with the lively mterea
which we have always expressed in the fortune
of the house of llapsburg, and the regret w
shall experience if condemned to witness it
fall. In the dissolution of the empire inti
its component parte, we see no other pro!
pert than that of a long succession of blood;
and unprofitable wars and mutually disastrous dii
sensions between the provinces which have hithei
to been held together by the link of the imperii
crown and the network of its administrative syf
tem. The various divisions of the Sclave familj
lying scattered at considerable distances Jror
each other, intermixed everywhere with alie
racf s, and differing from each other not less in thei
interests than in tneir language,religion,social nt
bits?, a*d the grades of civilization wnich they hav
severally attained, are more likely to be absorbe
in detail by the colossal Sclavonic empire by whic
they will be overshadowed, than to unite into
compact and independent confederation of the
own. Neither can w* entertain anv sanguir
hope that the rise of Hungary upon the ruins <
the Empire would suffice to replace the los? occi
sioned by the decadence of the latter. Having n
gard to what is passing under our eyes, we shoul
say that the shadow must go backward on the wal
and the tide turn ere it has reached its height. b<
lore Hungary can recover the sway over her Sclt
vonian dependencies, which she possessed befet
the union of her crown with that of Austria,
she is really to become independent, it would seer
that she must purchase her independence at th
price of the richest jewels in her diadem. Strippe
of Croatia, Slavonia, and the lone line of the mil
tary frontier, and forced to watch over a discor
tented slave population infused with its own,
Magyar kingdom would offer no substantial bu
wark to Russian encroachments. An4 even wet
fortune to prove doubly capricous, and the Hui
Parian nobles to succeed in accomplishing th
favorite object of their ambition, there is muc
reason 10 apprenena mat me traditional aniinosu
which the Magyars have ever nourished toward
Russia, and which lapse of time seems to hav
rather embittered than allayed, would make
diflicult for them to pursue towards her that wis
and moderate policy which would best conduce t
her neighbor's interests and her own. Indener
dently of the dangers, internal and external, whic
threaten to undermine, her strength, we fear tha
the establishment of an independent Hungary i
clofe proximity to Russia, would be calculate
raider to endanger than to secure the tranquillit
of Europe. In this and many other respects, th
downfall of the Austrian Empire would leave
vacuum which it might require a general remode!
ling of the European system to supply.

.4 Polictman in Trtublt.?A few weeks ago, some
ne or two jewelry stores were broken open and rob>ed
ol a large amount of property. The thieves wero
ubrequentlv arrested, and the whole of the property
ecovered ; however, among this recovered jewelry,
fere some precious stones, which were supposed to beong
to a jeweler in the BoweTy. The policeman took
.he diamond* to the Bower* (tore-keeper, who. on elimination,
decided that the property had not been

instead of returning the diamonds to the
magistrate, entered into a bargain with the storekeeper,
and sold the diamonds for a certain sum, and
pocketed the money. A few days passed away, when
the purchaser of the diamonds, net having an immediate
use fbr them, conveyed them to a manafaoturing
jeweler in Reade street, with the idea of exchanging
them for jewelry ; and no sooner were they exhibited
to the manufacturer, than he recognized them to ha
i portion of the property stolen from him about a
fear ago This singular fact ooming to light, caaaed
he whole affair to be investigated, and the poseeesion
