The Story of Plingauscr.
From Miss Howitt's " Art Stu
dent in Munich" in press by 'Vick-
nor Co., Rostou :
It was in the year 1705, the year
after the great battle of l!loiilioim,
when Jjiiiropo was devouriiig her ve
ry heart in contcstsnbom the ' Span
is Succession," that the Ilavnrian
pcaantry rose cn masse They were
smarting under the bitter vengeance
Of the Austrian government, who
visited the sins of the princes upon
the people; they were grouud to
the very dust by imposts and cruel
ty, and had already in public assem
bly addressed the diet of Itegens
burg, declaring that 'necessity forc
ed them to arms.'
Two students, I'linganscr and
Mcndl, placed themselves at the
head of the peasant insurgents and
were everywhere victorious. Vari
ous of the nobility joined them;
but this in the end only led to the
betrayal of the peasants. On they
marched victoriously towards Mun
ich, whither the Imperial General
Krcichbaum had beau despatched
with reinforcements.
The Vorsiadt-Au was already in
full insurrection. Thq giant moun
taineer, (he Smith Iialtcor Sibaldus
of Kochel, with his two sons, led
on the excited people with the cry
of Savo tho children !' n rumor be
ing atloat that the young Bavarian
Princes were to be carried out of tho
land. One of the city gates was
forced, Sibaldus with his 'Morgen
stcrn' slaying an Austrian sentinel;
and a bloody and fierce conflict en
sued. Tho peasants, relying upon aid
from tho nobles within tho city who
had joined their side, fought long
and bravely, but no succor reached
their little baud : fighting on foot,
between the fire of the Austriaus
from the city aud of General Kreich
batim in their rear, they Hod towards
the village of endlihg, where, ral
lying round tho church, these peas
ants fought like lions; Sibaldus and
hi:) sous f;llii)2 anions; tho slain. It
i is said that five hundred perished.
! The wounded were carried back to
Jiuiiicn, anu exposed in me streets
during the rigor of the Christmas
night. Tho battle was fought up
on Christmas Day.
Misery foil, of course, with only
tenfold bitterness upon tho peasan
try; beheadings drawing nnd quar
tering, mutilations, grievous fines
and imprisonments, being the solo
wages received by the survivors of
the conflict.
Historians tell us that 'the ring
leaders were beheaded ;' but the
popular voice relates a termination
to Plingauser's history which rings
in ouo's heart like n lovely ballad of
Uhlaud.
Long years after this battle fought
iijioii the Christinas Day around tho
church, the Bavarian Elector was
hunting in a wood at some distance
from Munich : ho encountered an
old beggar ou his path, an old man
clothed in rags, and having lost an
arm and leg.
' Who aro vou, my poor man ?'
demanded the Elector ; ' and where
did you loso your arm aud leg ?'
'I am Plingaiiser!' proudly repli
ed the old beggar ; 'and I lost my
arm aud leg fighting for Bavaria a
gninat Austria '.'
Down from his horse alighted the
Elector, took the beggar by his one
remaining hand, mounted him upon
his horse, and bare-headed walked
besido him; and thus with music
triumphantly sounding before them,
ho conducted the braVu old man
back to Munich. Through the city-
gate he led him where the conflict
had raged so fiercely, and on towards
the old Palace, where tho Electress
and her ladies were summoned forth
to rccoive the old man. The bolls
rang out from all tho churches ; tho
cannon boomed ; the begcar was led
into tho Palaco ; tho Elector himself
took of his rags, clothed him in flue
linen, washed his feet, . combed his
hair, and seated him at his right
hand.
And not alone, says the voice of
the people, was this tho honor of a
day, but as long as the hero lived ho
dwelt in tho palace as a beloved and
cherished brother of the Elector.
Mr. fou D. says, that some years
ago a Munichin poet wrote a drama
upon this incident, and that his play
had an astounding success. It was
acted fifteen nights running, the au
dience coming to the theatro in
Tyrolean costume, and bursting
forth into long shouts of applause at
each expression of liberty, and con
tempt of Austria. So great was the
excitement, that the Austrian gov
ernment remonstrated, and after
fifteen nights' success the play was

DECLARATION.
Her Majesty, the Queen of the
United Kingdoms of Great Britain
and Ireland, having been compelled
to take up arms in support ofan all),
Is desirous of rendering the war at
little onerous as possible to the Pow-
crs with whom she remains at peace. 1
I o preserve the commerce of neu-I

seizing articles contraband ot war, I

it be contraband of war.
It is not Her Majesty's intention
to claim the confiscation of neutral
property, not being contraband of t
war, found on board enemy's ships, i
and tier Majesty further declares
that, being anxious to lessen, as much
as possible, Ihe evils of war, and to
restrict its ojierations to the regular-
ly organized farces oT the country, it whether, sooner or later, these re

THE WAR DEBATE IN THE 'to lie prostrate at' tho feet of one
BRITISH PARLIAMENT, great overwhelming Power (hear;)
Tho English journals received by ! vhethtr one Power is to bestride the

the report of tho great debate which Baltic to the Mcdittcrrancan, to
took place in Parliament on the Rotate to Germany, and to domineer
night of tho alii of March upon the ovcr Turkey, to have the whole of
address to tho Quran, in rnr,U ln lhe rest of Europe at its mercy to
her Declaration of War. The ad
urcss was moved in the House of
Lords by Lord Clarendon. Tho
fuel that the address was adopted
.without a dissenting vote is evidenco
of the unanimity ol sentiment in the
nation upon the subject of the vigor
ous prosecution of the war.
5Jt is very evident from the tone of
fui.,peeches of. prominent Knglisli
slalesmeii, that thev feel the irons
crndeiil importance of the struggle in
which they have engaged.
Lord Brougham said he could not
help taking that opportunity of ex
pressing his satisfaction that one no
bio Marl had taken occasion to state
what ho thought il was most essen
tial to have staled thai this cuntcst
in which wo wero now most unhap
pily, though most inevitably, engag
ed, was not fikely to be an easy con
test one not unaccompanied with
heavv sacrifices to this country and
ho must add, he feared it might not
prove a very short one. It was nec
essary that thostj things should bo
stated, in order lo prevent any popu-1
lar delusion as to the extent of the
sacrifices which he greatly feared the I
country might be called on .to make;j
ami it was the more necessary when
their lotdships remembered that the
Government, having most wisely and!
most consistently shown the utmost
possible reluctance to enter into this
struggle, had been anticipated by the
popular voice a:.d the popular foil
ing, which had been much more gen
eral and much more loud in favor of
hostilities than the Government, as
appeared by recent negotiations.
Neither of the speakers of the
government could give any definite
notion of what they expected to ac
coinplish by the war, farther than to
check the encroachments of Russia.
Upon this subject Lord Clarendon
said :
Our object is to check and repel
the unjust aggression of Russia, but
in what manner that will be carried
out, and to what consequences it
may lead, must depend entirely up
on the provcibial chances of war,
upon the success that may attend
i-ur anus, aud upon the activity of
our allies.
Lord Clarendon and Lord Brough
am both took occasion to state t lint
England had every reason to be sat
isfied with the conduct of Austria.
The former said :
She has behaed in an honorable
and straight-forward manner through
out the negotiations with Russia,
and she has done, m her own way,
and at her own tune, everything she
coutti lor the preservation of peace,
nnd to
maintain the integrity of
Turkey
The Earl of Derby, in the House
of Lords, spoke in behalf of the op.
position to the present ministry, and
made an elaborate attack upon tho
course of the government in regartl
to the secret correspondence. In re
gard to ihe probable duration of the
war, he saitl :
If I venture, my lords, at this mo
ment, when we are entering upon a
great war, to tall your attention and
the attention of the country to its
importance, to its magnitude, und,to
its possible duration, il is not with a
view of discouraging that enthusiasm
which the noble earl describes to he
felt by the nation ou this question
it ts with no wish to damp the ardor
nnd eagerness of the people of this
country to support, at whatever sacri
fice to themselves, that which they be
lieve to be a just and sacred cause ;
but 1 do it, well knowing the charac
ter and nature of my country uien,be
iicving mm tneir energies, uieir cug-j
erness, ami their enthusiasm would
rather be increased and excited than
diminished by having placod before
Ihem plainly and distiucily the mag-!
mtude of the struggle nnd the great
n ess of the sacrifice for which they
must be prepared. I think nothing
could be so unfortunate as that we
should enter upon this ureal struimlo
with an idea entertained ou the part f
ol a great portion of the country
still less with an idea entertained
nnd encouraged on the part of her
Majesty's government that this
war is likely to be un uffair of trifling
duration.
hi thu House of Commons, oppo
sition speeches were made by Mr.
Luyard, Mr. Disraeli, and Mr.
Bright, which were answered by
Lord Pulmerstoii and Lord John
Russell, The debate goes over the
whole ground, and tlirows great light
ou the origin, causes, and probable
results of the pending war.
We copy the closing paragraph of
Ihe eloquent speech of Lord rainier
ston. lie said :
The real question, however, which
we have lo consider is, not whether
Musselman is better or worse than
Christian it is not whether it is de
sirable to hasten more or less those
internal reforms which must, sooner
or later, take place in the Turkish
empire not

we have meed her to reject in the
caseof Russia. Nothing of the sort
has been done ; the question is not

that Power shall be taught that
there are limits to the ambition even
of a Czar (chceirs,) to lite conquests
even of a military empire of which
one may say that tho whole territory
is one great camp and the population
ouu regimental depot; that in spite
of the powei which the sovereign
may be iiblc to sway, m epito of the
military resources which lie is able to
command, there does exit.1 in Eur
ope a respect for the principles of na

encroachments in any one Power, be
that Power what it may, and that we
aro able, as wo are willing, by arms,
as resort to arms has become neces

independence of nations. (Loud
and continued cheering.)

DURATION OF THE WAR.
Let our younger read, rs carefully
note the visible signs and prepara
tions for war. Let them enter in
their diaries the regiments they saw
in route for the East, the day they
bade good bye to the uncle or brother
they were never to see again, when
they first heard of tho Czar's bluff
answer to our summons, the Queen's
Message to Parliament, the addresses
in reply", mid it they chanced to wit
ness it, the procession yesterday to
tfie Palace to present those addresses ;
nor can we omit the first Sunday
when they heard the prayer for time
of war used in our churches. Let
them store these things in their mem
ories, and ponder over them, for,
though it may be only n few years,
in all human probability it will be
many, befoic they will see the end
of which this is the beginning Six
ty years ago, with great ardor and
temerity, we rushed into war with u
people whom we had learned to hate
and despise, standing at that time
alone among nations, beaten by us
nut of their colonies ami dependen
cies, pent up within mountains nnd
seas, and under the perpetual surveil
lance of our fleets. Nevertheless,
that war, so begun, with so much en
thusiasm, and with such a coiffidcnco
of right ou our part that hardly a pul
pit but what sounded the alarm, !ast-
ed near a quarter of a century, filling
Europe with disaster and convulsing
the whole habitable world. VVu
havo now to deal with a continent
rather than n State, and with a largo
section of thu human race rather
than a people. With our mvn num
bers more than ever finite, nnd with
materials, labor, and man himself
early more appreciated, we contend
with a cheap ami inexhaustible mill
titude. Wo wage war with a Gov
eminent whose domestic sjstcm is
despotism anil whose foreign policy
is conquest. In the former it has ic
fuscd to improve ; in the latter it has
scarcely known a check. Sixty
years ago it was imagined that the
indignation and the selfishness of all
Europe would concentrate all her ar
mies against devoted France, the nno
common Joe. JNow there aio thou
sands of miles of frontier tint! an un
approachable and unknown interior
to be attacked. Our foe contains
within her bosom the seed-plot of na
tions, nnd still harbors tho originals
of the very tribes that used to menace
and conquer the civilized world.
When some ono observed the other
day that it had been long foreseen
that il must enmu to this, and that
we were only accuptini; a task that
otnerwise would nave lalien on our
successors and proved nbovo their
.strength, that implies not merely the
I greatness of the efforts required of
us, but tho length of time durinj;
which they will probably have lo bo
sustained. A few great blows, aided
by fortuno, and by some return to
sanity in tho councils of Russia, may
perhaps bring tho war to an early de
rnirmtinn.
nial is no uncommon
resolution of tho difficulties which
despotic violcnco is apt to bring on
the world. But it cannot bo disguis
ed that the vaslncss of the Powers
involved in tho present war, the
depth nf tho causes which have pro
voked it, and the importance of thu
principles at issue, al( portend a con
test as long and as changeful ns any
that have darkened tho annals of the
world.
As usual, and as seems to bo the
fate nf this country, ours will be nut
so much the painful endurance, ns
tho costly mainlainanco of active
hostilities. Wo take a public and
active part in the afl'airs of tho world
at large, and we hold it our vocation
to do so. Relying on our power and
our comparative immunity, we be
friend thu injured and chastise the
oppressor. Once engaged in these
generous, though sometimes gratuit
ous interferences, our honor forbids
us lo recede, and we find ourselves
pledged to crusade in support of the
common liberty and justice, and our
own national honor, that is our
case now. There is little likelihood
ol ouf own shores being invaded, or
our commerce seriously damaged.'

TtiB Chances op War. Tho
probabilities of sickness and death
from ordinary causes have long
been the subject of study by statt
cians, mid m England tables have
been prepared under which benefit
societies nnd life assurance compan
ies havo prospered for many years.
"Accidental deaths" havo recently
been made the subject of very close
examination, and there, arc now
companies which insure against in
jury or death by railway accidents,
for a sinirle trip, for tho Vear. or fori
tho duration ol lite. The war in
tho East has now opened n now
field for these accttrato gentlemen,
who have calculated precisely tho
number of miles or number of years
you may travel in a railroad car free
from disaster, and they havo already
determined the chances of being hit
by a Russian bullet, or being trans
fixed by a Cossack lance. Upon
what data these calculations are bas
ed, wo aro not informed, but it is
determined that a party 'may bo in
surcd against " death by accident or
violence from any cause, lncludiu
death in action, for 3 os. on the
100 per annum : and if to include
a payment in case of loss of limb
of half tho sum insured, and payable
on death, 3 3s. per cent, oxtra."
It would seem from these terms that
the Russians aro expected to fire
low, and that a man is twice as
likely to loso his leg as ho is to lose
his head. N, Y. Courier.

come in contact with tho manure. '
If the soil be dry, wet the roots'bf
the tree, nnd set it in the hole ne
deeper than it grqw before. A straight
edge will assist you in the operation.
Most trees are set too deep. The
roots aro planted wiere nature never
designed below tho genial influen
ces of the sun, air, dews and light
rains; and in fact below the upper
sou irom wnence uiey sfiouid derive
their sustenance. Let tho tree
branch or lean N. V. Tho wind
will right il and perhaps lean it ''to
the cast, as nearly all the fruit trees
in the country do. Place the roots
as evenly about the hole as they will
admit, that they may shoot, and the
tree bo supported, in all directions.
With the hand pack pure, fine, rich
soil about the roots, keeping them,
especially tho fibrous ones, in their
natural ami true position. Fill in
thu rich soil, and manured soil, if any
there be, until the bote be nearly
filled. If the soil bo dry, especially
in the spring, pour in a gallon or two
of water. Complete filling with (he
poorer soil, and raise it sonic four
inches about the tree, if in the
spring, that when the earth settles
there may bo no hollow. If in the
full, raise a cone of earth about the
tree eight to ten inches high, to pre
vent the mice from girdling them.
This is a sure preventative, as mice,
in quest of food under tho snow, will
shun such an obstruction. If water
be poured in, there is little need of
treading the soil. If not, tread care
fully with the foot.
Prune tho tree, having reference
to tho future top, taking off about
half ihe last year's growth. If trees
bo small, or high and limber, and ex
posed to winds or snow drifts, set a
stake, to which tic the trco with a
listing or leather s'ring tacked to the
tree.
Well, my trees are now set, and
well set, what shall I d fur them in

but they will repay a hundred fold.

has lain 1 or 2 years, add 2 quarts of

it in. The spading operation enliv

It may bo heaped about the tree lata
in the fall to prevent depredation by
