AR IN EUROPE.
-r-J'1-". imuuici I'ilu Ol WHS nufuina'u paper tliu record, of the chief "evefits ot thctiist week of tho European war. The, result thus fur is n suecefi of Prussian armies, which meets, if it doc not surpass, the boldest expectations of the triends ot 1 riissia. r On the 14th of June, tho middle States of Germany, by voting tor the Austrian motion in Frankfort, had declared their readiness lo join in a war against Prus sia. On the I.V.b, Prussian troops had entered two of theso Slates, Saxony and Hanover. Ono week later, on tho 23d, tho larger portion of both Kingdom, including the. capitals of each, were in tho hands ot the victor. Kings Minis ters and unnias, were on tho flight i and as to tho irriny of Hanover, it even was Btill doubtful whether it could make good its escape, us Ihu Prussians had captured Cassel, wh'ch lies south of Hanover Tho Grand Duchy of He-ise-D.irmstadt. Ihe Electorate ot 1'Iesse-Cassel, and the Duchy of 1 1 assail hid already shared tho fated Saxony and Hanover A regi ment of Hesse Darmstadt is reported to have been cut to pieces and the Elector of Hesse-Cassel himself has been captur ed. The rapid and brilliant movements of the Prussian have thus far met with no opposition. Thu Austriaim, who, on (he first outbreak of hostilities, wore ex peeled todis me tho possession of Dres den, have not only advanced into Saxo ny, but have even iiUoweiHhc. Prussians to advance from Saxony and Silesia, un opposed, into Uohemia- The allies of Austria among tho German States wero unable to comprehend the causes of this inactivity, and began to, complain that Austria had involved them in a war without being able to protect them. Tho most powerful of tho minor States, Havana, was even .reported to hesitate ngain whether sho would take an active part in tho war or not. The main armies of the contending parties are now con fronting caah other on the frontier of Silesia and Rohcinia. Some Austrian troops had advanced into Silesia, but the latest dispatches are not only silent about . their further progress, but they speak, ou tho contrary, ot the invasion of Bohemia by the Prussians. Reneditk's plan was Btill kept i-triclly scen t, but upon the ..further advance ot the Prussians will soon become apparent. A part at Western Saxony has not yet been occupied bv tho Prussians, and there a concentration of Saxon and Ausiiian forces has taken place, winch may at any limo be joined by fioniot), OOlHo H'l.UOO liavnriuns, unless Rivaria should, after all, deem it safest to kep out of the contest. A Pcdoinl army of about (10.000 men under the command of Piinco Alexander of Hesse, has been concentrated at Frankfort. It consists of tho contin gents of Wertembiirg. Hesse-Darmstadt and Bover.il other small States, ai.d cf tho Austrian brigide Malik, which by a pre cipitate retreat from Hol.-tein, has es caped tho Prussians. It expects to re ceive roMnfnrcements lrotn Davariaj. Hanover, and other States. In Italy, hostilities have barely com--ineticed. A turinal declaration of war had been issued by Italy on the 18th of June, nnd it was reported that tho Italians had crossed thu Miucio without meeting with any resistance lint the plan et tho ftaliau campaign has not yet been developed. Kossuth was nl Florence, and had been received by the King He will act in conceit with Gar nbaldi and thes3 two names are a guarantee- that we shall soon hear stirring news from the Southern frontier 4f Aus. tria. Tribune THE FORCE OF HABIT. The force of habit, or tho ruling pas b'ioii strong in death, has a fine illustra tion in tho effort ot tho Democrats to 1.0. iiiu negro in their poliiicu. tics without tho negro appears to Ihein as "stale, flat end unprofitable" as the play of Hamlet with ihe chamber hit out. Thsy have a soil of political can nibalism, tho negro being meat nnd dnulc to them. While tho negro is not in the. platform of the Union party at all, with the opposition he constitutes their entire stock, and w;'.h them it is i egro or nothing And this is tho more remarkable, in view ot the troubles, disintegrations and defeats that their forcing the subject into thoir polities has already entailed upon Ihein. Tho effort to fix negro slavery on Kansas was full ot disaster to them, alienating many ot their best and strong est men. Their sympathy with negro Blavcry as represented in tho rebellion, covered them' with disgrneo nnd defeat, mul drove off still more of their former ' companions and lenders. In their poli ties they have fared as badly in the ter rible conflict as their secession friends fared in their material interests. And yet, while the latter resign slavery and the negro, thu Democrats persist in using the hair of tho dog that bit them to eiu;o their w ounds. It can bo accounted for only by nsevib lug it to the force of habit Opposition to tho "nitgur" lias been si long mid ' successfully used with a class of tho most f.rllful ndherents of the parly, that ab stainor.co from that old song might bo in danger ot demoralizing even them. And so abolition and tlm negro must still bo tho burden (f their political speech. 1'itli- Cum. SiTti.iiD at Last. A Dauphin county easo has been settled by tho Supreme Court sitting at Wilkosbarre, in which a decision made ly Judge Pearson has been reversed. Tho easo is that of Tyson vs. the School Directors ot Halifax town ship, Dauphin couiitv. Iu this case nn association of citizens paid bounties to volunteers to fill her quota, and afterward obtained tho ps. sago of nu net authorizing tho School Directors to levy a tax nnd refund to tlium exponded. Tho court held thoro.wus no obligation on the defendants to assume and pay the debt. The deoreo of the coui't was reversed aud dutujidants wore ' enjoiued from collecting taxes to reim burse the bounty association ot llnlilax township. 7 ' J&hr WAVNKSlJUlUi: 'jTTSAYrflSilitof mul Proprietor.

Tho nineteenth anniversary of our nation's independence has been celebrat ed and throughout the wide extent of a fico country its coining was hailed by the joyous acclamations of loyal millions. The fires of patriotism burned anew in their hearts, finding vent in songs of praise a:;d thanksgiving, tho mid night sky gashed by ihe red gluro of the rocket ar.d tho deep toned inusio of artillery. As tho nation moves on in its steady march of progress it is inent that its birth-day should bo welcomed with re- newed enthusiasm as it was on July thg ltii, 18:iJ. Tho f.M of Vienirg, tho glorurtis discomfituro of traitor hordes on the red field of Gettysburg, tho thought that our confederation has outlived the combined treachery, conspiracy, and ro- bellion of the lust number of years, crowd in among the historic associations of America's natal day. It is fit that tho clang r of bells should be heard, that flags should wave, drums rattle, cannons rear; that from shore to shore loud ho saunas should rent the air, for in truth wo can exclaim : "Tho!,'li our foes had spurn'd our fl ij?, Placed their heel upon each star, Now it waves lis colors bright, Shouting "Liberty 1" alar." Let it ever be so. When n Fourth of July arrives not ushered in by the booming of guiS and the Hinging of our starry emblem to tho breeze the the last characteristic; of an American people will hnvo long died 'out.

Cooke, a bona Jhle Johnson man, took part in tho caucus so far as to offer the "Platform of the National Union Club" or, in other words "Johnson's Platform" for their adoption. This they assume to have adopted but declined publishing it in their proceedings. We consider them unexceptionable to men of pro fessed sympathy with President John son, now why is it that his friends (!) do rot publish them as a part of their procccliigs when they so cordially en. dor.-c his policy! The question is, d'i ilicij or do thy not approve of' "Presh dent Johnson's platform ?" Their ac tions say no I a farce.

WORK FOR THE ROYS IN BLUE.

Tho word has gone forth that a dead set is to be made upon Pennsylvania, and for this rea-'on hat is called thu National Union Con vention is to bo lieM in Philadelphia on the 14th day of August next, for tho purposo of unconditionally admitting tho representatives ot the lato seceded States, without reference either to the ciiine of treason or without tho slightest recognition of the bravo men who de feated that treason on tho lield of battle. Thus far not a single eminent so'dier tins taken ground in favor of this Cop perhead and Copperjohnson combina tion. Hut wlnio the Union, soldiers are called upon to guard tho outworks against this new assault, the politicians should take caro in their coining nomi nations for ofl'.ces to act liberally towards these war-worn veterans. BIRDS OF A FEATHER. During tho war everything which the rebels believed, was believed by that portion of tho Northern Democrats called Copperheads: nnd now thaUhc war is over, there is a perfect accord in the sentiments of the conquered rebels and their Northern friends, who compriso tho Democratic party of tho present campaign. It is morally impossible for loyal people to coincide in doctrine with thos4 whom they wero so recently compelled to conquer by force of arms; and fie fact that there is a party in the loyal States whoso platform and objects are the same ns those of the late rebels, shows that thu conflict between tho friends and the enemies of tho country is yet to go on throughout the whole land Tel.
