The Austro-Prussian Imbroglio.
* Krta in this country uo one can contemplate
?the probability of a general huropean wai
without pain and regrei. and now that the
lirm attitude of both Austria anil Prussia in
rotation to Schleswlg-HolMeln renders the 1
pros poet of continued }H?acf cxtrpiu^lj uttcei -
tain and vigue. it is highly important tons
certain the exact nature of the differences
which may plunge two great and powerful
nations into the sorrow and desolation of war.
The Duchy of liolstein pas?od by marriage
under the rule of Denmark, and upon tin
death ot the King, by whom it was :%*
quired. its restoration was demanded by tin*
Germanic Confederation. Denmark refused
to restore the Duchy, and tin* refusal caused
the Prusso- Danish war, which ended in Pru*
sia obtaining jnwse>*uMi ot liolstein, the Duch>
in dispute, and. in addition, the Duchy of
Schlesw ig. which liail not before been claimed
as 1>elonging in any way to Germany.
The two Duchies are extremely limited in
their area, their greatest length being about
fifty miles, anil greatest breadth not more than
thirty-five miles. Schleswig, the more north
erly of the two, is bounded on the north b>
Denmark, and on the south by liolstein. while
liolstein i< di>ided on the south from the
Kingdom of Hanover by the i her Kibe.
There is little doubt that in the Prussian
Danish war the former country was sustai ued
by the opinion of the whole Germanic Con
federation: but ii was understood that the
Duchies. when wrested from Denmark, would
l>e allow ?*?1 to remain independent in nam**
and fact. I'ower ami dominion are. however,
as sweet to the great nations of the world as
to those pet t\ sovereigns who can survey t !???
whole extent of their domains from the ter
race of their one royal chateau, and the great
Protestant Kingdom determined to make the
Duchies t?f Schlesw ig-Ilols?ein an integral por
tion of her territory The whole of Germany
is dotted over with miniat lire duchies and
principalities, where everything is small and
insignificant but prodigality and pride? an.:
their rulers became naturally alarmed at the
establishment of a precedent of annexation
which might ere long be practiced upon them
selves. King I.oi; was better, in their judg
ment, than King Stork: and Austria, who is
now apparently supported by the great West
ern Powers, as well as by the general feeling
of Germany, has announced distinctly and em
pliatically that the proposed annexation -hall
never be consummated with her consent.
Determined to conciliate, if possible, het
aggrieved neighbor, Prussia has offered Austria
pecuniary indemnity to compensate for the
increase of territory and power which she her
self would gain : but to this proposition Austria
has declined most positively to accede. Alls
tria does not apparently desire an\ advantage
to herself, and in advocating the claims ot
Duke Fkiki'Uk ii < 'hristian to the sovereignty
of the Duchies, she is but contending for the
best interests oi the petty Powers of Germany .
In the course of a few years the Duchy of
Krunswick will merge into the Kingdom of
Hanover by the death of the present Duke,
who is childless, and so long as amalgamations
result from the natural laws of inheritance,
no one has any right to complain : but against
the principle that a great Power may at plea
sure swallow up her weaker ueighbors, Aus
tria is evidently determined to contend, even
though the assertion and maintenance ol her
position should involve her in a protracted
and ruinous war.
All the resources of diplomacy and media
tion will of course be exerbil toavoid an ap
peal to arms: but as neither Power shows an>
inclination to give way, it is quite possible
that at an early day we may receive advices ol
the severance of diplomatic relations between
the two conn I lies. The area of the Duchies
whose possession i- in di-pute i*, as lias already
been stated, comparatively iu-ignilicaut : yet
the Schleswig and liolstein of modem days
was the home of the cimWi, and AwjUs, ami
,s. * i "ut s, those hardy Northmen who over-ran
Hurope, planting their banners in the heart of
Paris, and laying in Afjh-b'n-l the foundation
ol that great Anglo-Saxon race which, how
ever changed by traditions in the Old World,
are modified b\ circumstances in the New.
now holds predominance as being first in pliy
sical force as well as first in civilization and 1111
proveinent. Schleswig- liolstein cannot there
fore be altogether forgotten, whatever her
form of government; and we can only hope
that the requirements ot justice and modera
tion may be satisfied by some other means
than that of war; for surely if Kuropeau ex
perience i* in any way like ours in the last
four or five years, the arbitrament of battle
will, if consistent with honor, always be
avoided.
?
Restitution.
General Kwinu, lute of the* l iuted States
army, has recently performed an act which i* j
highly meritorious, ami which does him inli - I
liite credit. He has returned to the Missis j
sippi State Library, through Governor Hcm
I'liKCVrf, of that State, a number of books
which at different times during the war came
into hits possession as commander.
A very good example. We wish that a
large number ol" books stolen from the Library
of this State had fallen into such honest hands.
Our library was one of the finest of all the
State libraries. It was seriously impaired by
the ravages of those into whose hands it fell
at the time of the evacuation.
What a world o 1 restitution business would
hare to be done were all the rogues who have ,
in their possession the valuables and movables
of Southern people to be so stricken in con
science as to induce them to give up the stolen
property ' We apprehend the means of trans
portation would be altogether inadequate to
the demand it would occasion. The Govern- j
inent transportation was largely employed in
this way? and as that has been diminished to
a small scale, we do not know where the car- 1
rying means of restoration could be obtained.
It would break down all the Kx presses of
Adams & Co., Harnden, the National, the
Southern, and as many more! Indeed, it1
would be more than we could expect some 1
persons to do, considering the burthen it
would impose upon them' How could Gene
ral Hi it kk begin to distribute the effects in ,
hit> hands of those unfortunate persons upon
whose estates he became the administrator
<1* H'nt tart! As the business of restitution I
would be so nearly impracticable, it would be
kind in Providence to harden the consciences
of the preseut holders ol the vast property
lost by the Southern people. It is better, i
then, that, like Hcti.ks, they may contemplate i
their ill-gotten hoards, and say :
^ ''bene ?"' <*ar? ' that Ku'lt brought you |
1 but feel that 1 love who's evci you n>ru !
Niaoaka Sine ('i.?it-.-The proposition for
the construction of a ship canal around Ni
agara Pails ha* been virtually defeated in the
New York Legislature. The bill was ordered
to its third reading, with an amendment pro
viding that the lockv on the Krie canal shall
first be enlarged to the dimensions of two hun
dred feet in length, and that the Krie shall
otherwise be made suitable for vesaels of six
hundred tons, and that the proposed Niagara
canal bhail not be constructed until this work
on the Krie shall have been finished. This of
course disjioses of the measure for the present.

Thk Li? kjchk Tax? A?;aix. ? In assessing the
tax upon the license* of merchants who have
been in business for less than a year, the com- !
missioner is required by the law to "ascer
tain the amount of sales by adopting the Rales
for such part of the year as a basis for the
same for the entire year."
That is, if a merchant sells two thousand j
dollars' worth of goods in the month of April,
and commenced business on the first of that
month, he has to pay a tax on sales as if he |
had been in business for a year, and sold twen* 1
ty-fonr thousand dollars' worth. And so for I
anv less time, if it be only fhedays.
