CARL SCIlUnZ ON THE EUROPEAN WAR. Austria and PruIa. From the Detroil Pout Juno 22. The greatest armies ever raised by Austria, Prussia and Italy are now standing face to face, ready to strike, waiting only for tho word : March! Although it would bo hazardous to predict what will be tho final result of the gigantic struggle, y t we are per mitted to draw some conclusions as to the future from tho past history, the comparative strength and tho present condition of the contending powers. In jioint of territory nnd popula tion, Austria is by far the strongest of;the three, but as to populat'ou not ns strong as Prussia and Italy com bined. , Tho area of Austria is Li.'JO, 311 English square miles, while Prus sia has only luV2l2 atid Italy 1ISJ84. The population of Austria is comput ed at il(,7l-J,000 souls ; that of Prus sia" waa in 1G4 about 19,o()."),b0!. and that of Italy 21,70:1,710, giving Italy and Prussia combined un exwss over Austria of more thac 4,000,000. Aside from the question of num bers, the population of Austria is far less homogeneous than flint of either Prussia or Italy. Tho empire of Aus tria is a vast pen, in which nt least half a dozen, more or less, distinct nationalities aro hedged in. There are over 9,000,000 Germans; over 5,000, 000 Magyars ; Italians, Bohemians, Slovacks, Moravians, Slavonians, Croats, Poles, r-crvians, Bulgarians, Eastern Iiouians, and other nations of j less importance to make up tho bal ance. These different nationalities have had hardly anything in common but the Central Government; "neither language nor social forms nd cus- toms, nor economical interests, nor order, and the administration well reg- j Slavery is abohsou, and neither. can, even affection for tho family ruling J ulated. The Prussian army, on a war nor ought to be, re-established in any over thetn all. While each of them ; footing, amounts to about (100,000.

This into exasperation. Although the the eloctions, returns, and qualilica game was played with great skill and j Prussian army is generally regarded j tions of its members ; but tho exciu goneral success, although in the case asione of the host, disciplined 4ia the sion of loyal Senators nnd Keprosotv- of tho ITunarian revolution, in 1849, ' tlio aid of Russia had to he called in to save the throne of tho llnpsburjjs. ( While thus the different natbnali-' h tho Kmpire of Austria consists may well lie used in case of laudwehr." The 44 landwehr " duos where, which can serve no other j.ur need, one against another, yet each of not, as sotno of our cotetnporaries j jtose than to rekindle the aniniOHitiea theni adheres to its ow National. asU seotn to believe, consist of raw levies 'of war, and the elhw-t of which upon rations, ami is always ready to use or fresh conscripts: it consists of num I our moral, social and material inter- overy opportunity presenting ttso f for their furtherance. A situation like the present, it which the Kniperor in obliged to call upon the hearty co-operation of nil his peoples, is not tin likely to be taken advantage of for such purposes. Although on the whole the responso to tho call to arms is sat- it is composed of men in tho full vigor isfactory enough, we learn that the of their manhood, has been looked Hungarians are by no moans inclined ( upon us the bebt part of the Prus n to aid the Kniperor with anything like ' army. But, as these men form the ardor nnd enthusiasm, unless the de- I einew of tho country, and mostly have mandsthey have never ceased pressing ' families, the calling out the "lan.1. smce 18 IM, bo com died with. As to 1 wehr" involves a violent and disas Venctia, tho Julian province of Aus-j trous interruption of all industrial tria, it is evideut tliat tlio population pursuits, and is a terrible blow to t ie will be, to a man, hostile to Austria in j families they leave behind unnrovid I tho impending struggle; and already fur., tfuch s;icriliea are made cheer aro all the regiments raised by Aus- ; fully only when the cause to be fought tria in that province transported to ot!er parts of the Empire, where they will have to fight, not ugainst Italians ' but "ngainst Prussians, to whom they are not bound by any ties of national j sympathy. It is expected, however, ' that, well aware of the understanding 1 existing between Prussia nnd the Kingdom of Italy, many of them will desert the Austria colors and go over to tho enemy. Ono ol the principal difficulties Aus tria has to contend with consists in the precarious condition of her finan ces. For several generations Austria has boo; proverbially bankrupt. The Napoleonic wars left her finances in a state of utter prostrution; there was a slow, gradual improvement from 1815 to 184, whMt tho revolutionary gale swept over Europe, shaking the Aus trian Empire to its very foundations, and bringing it again near the verge of absolute batik uptcy. Austria had hardly somewhat recovered Irons, tho shock when tlio Crimean war, during which she hud to maintain au "armed neutrality," and the Italiau war again reproduced the same I'tnbarrassnient. The gigantic armaments she is now making render her financial condition almost hopeless. Tho annual expen d. lures over receipts, which has been very great almost from time immemo rial, must be appalling; and it would seem almost mcedible that tho despe rate shifts and expedients by which she has extricated herself from so many distressing dilhYulties hereto foro should still prove available this time. That Austria, burdened with such a load of embarrassments, fchould un dertake a great war ngain.it so form idable a combination as that Italy nnd l'russia would almost seem an uct of temerity. And yet this is not tho first lime that Austria has undertaken sim ilar things under similar circumstan ces; nnd if the art to make wir with out motley has anywhere been reduced to a science by frequent sticcessil ex periments, it is in Austria. Desperate and hopeless as the situation would seem to any other man, to an Austrian it seems merely familiar. The Austrian army is over 700,000 men strong on a war footing; proba bly at present not far from 00,0;i0. It contains some of the best fighting material in the world. The Hunga rian cavalry, the German and Bohem ian iiifantrj?, the Tyroleno and Styrian sharp-shooters are without superiors. '1 ho many reverses Austria has suffer ed on the field of battle were owing not tlio quality of men, but to tho in elliciency of their commanders. The Austrian soldiers always fought well when well lead, and it is likely that they will bo well lead in the coming war, at least on one theater of opera tions. General Benedek, tho com mander of the Austrian army concen trated near the Prussian frontier, is no doubt vastly superior to any Gene ral sho has had since tho death of Ila det.ki. It was ho who in the lmttlo of Solferino, when he commanded the extreme right of the Austrians, coni- pletely defeated the Italians, while tho.) rest of the Austrian nrmy gave way I boforo the I rench. His appointment ' to tho most important command now , was certainly a fortunate one. W hile ho lm. ia full rwintwh prooal.le that tho Austrian armies to operate against lVussiu will bo at least civil war yoO.000 strong, while from 150,000 to j There no Tjglti anywhere, to dis 200,000 will be considered sulHeient to I -olvo thjl Union, or to seoarato States hold the quadrilateral ugainst the Ital iaus in the meantime Tl . i russiu oreseius in iu;wiv rrnnueisu . favorable contrast to Austria. Her 1 jiopulation is moro homogeneous, it ' being all German except 2,500,000; her debt Is light, her finances in good the Prussian breech-lo iding needle i mm iiKire ri imtinr nuwu-nr r inn ntur , e . v "J other European army can boast of. In all theso resnoets Prussia would be in an excellent condition to undertake a war. Although greatly inferior to ... . . i : - Austria in territory and population, ) she would have no reason to dread a DlllU t?-IUUV4C4 t,Ullbt3b tbll 4&U3l.lCl. 1 jrovernuieni, u not wuu eiiiiiutKusiu, at least with willingness, tho Prussian world, tho recent nrmameuta have lol to scenes which any where else, would be looked Ukd us tho ti solution. The iuobiliz rulude to dis-1 izution of the arniv involved the callinir out of the : who, after having nerved their regular term in the "liue." are permitted to ivtuiu to civil pursuits, liable to be culled out wh( never tho army in mo bilized" for active service. The "land wehr" is therefore a wed drilled body of vetfran a. ldiers, and, inasmuch as for has the sympathy of tho people, j I3ut the laudwehr" was culled out ; this time merely for tho execution of tho ambitious plans of a detested I Minister, tho cry of anger was raised bv tho men who had to iro. and a ci v ! 0f distress by the families loft behind. Iioud eurea were utlerod against Bin- ! mark, ollicers were beaten, railroad depots were demolished, nnd the de monstrations of fury and despair stop ped short only of geueral resistance to the royal deoreo. A spirit like this, if it continue, might have a very important influence upon tho events of the war. Men who are so profoundly disgusted with the cause they are culled upon to fight for that victory or defeat is to them all the same, ure uot likely to fight with that spirit upon which success m largely depends. They ma not find it convenient to expose their lives J more than they aro absolutely obliged to, and tako their revenge of tho Gov ernment by simply abandoning tho in stigators of the war to themselves nt tho decisivo momeut. On the other hand, it is. uot impossible that their soldierly spirit will get tho better of their resentment when the first shot is fired, and M e should not be surpris ed in that cuse to see them fie ht bet ter than tl cy now intend to. Taking all these moral and physical elements of success together, it would sciii that at the commencement of hostilities Austria will probably have anot inconsiderable advantage over her German rival. In Germany she will undoubtedly be stronger, inas much ns tho minor German States, n! mo?st without exception openly or se cretly sympathize with her. But the ultimate result of tho war will not de pond ou tho German powers alone The equilibrium of strength may be rd.st.ored or the preponderance decided in the weight which Italy and, per haps, Franco will throw into tho scale, and whether Austria will be able io withstand so powerful a combination, is exceedingly doubtful. Of this as pect ot the question, however, we in tend to speak on another occasion. National Union Convention. A National Union Convention, of at least two delegates from euch con gressional district of all the Stales, two from each Territory, two from the District of Columbia, and four dele gates at largo from'rach State, will be held at tho city of Philadelphia, on the second Tuesday (14th) of August next. Such delegates will be chosen by tho electors of the several States who sustain the Administration in main taining unbrokeu tho Union of the States, under the Constitution which our fathers established, and who agree in tho following proposit ons, viz: The Union of the States is, in eve ry case, indissoluble, and is perpetual;' and tho Constitution ot tho United 1 States, and the laws passed by Con ! gress in pursuauco thereof, supreme, ! nnd Puiist nt. niul linivKfK.il i.. their obligation ; Tho ts, tho dignity and tho rquality of tho States in tli3 Union, intiuling the right of representation , in tWress, aro solemnly guaranteed , tr(i!lit..rn .VM.H v,M.n,lw,l i tho bitn from the Union either by voluntary tvit.iirfrfl.wiii. hv force of iirms. or bv i - ' . cuiiiriesfnuiiu uuhuh, ueuuer iv uic secession of the Statos, nor by the ex - elusion of their loyal and qualified representatives, nor by the ,at'until Government in any other form ; t Each State has tho undoubted right rr urnscriiift i n miniinem ona oi its own electors, and no external power riirhtfullv can. or ounht to. dictate. i . . . .

They have manufacturers of falso noses in Chiua, but none of false teeth. There are practitioners who profess to cure the toothuche instanta neously, and people worthy of credit have assured me they succeed in doing so. The works of Europe ;n dentists are among the most admired exam ples of foreigners. A mandariu who was unxious to learn something about the making of teeth, onto produced to me a box full of artificial noses of various sizes and colors, with which he suppled the defects of his owu. He said he used one sort of nose be fore, and another after his meals, and insisted that Chiuese iugcuuity wus greater than our own. hat, in pro- I A Ml 1 . .1 . rt cess ol time, win oo the action oi western civilization on the farthest eastern regions whether, and in what shape, we shall mako returns for the instruction our foieljathers received from thence is u curious and interesting-inquiry-more interesting from the vast extent of the regions before us.

In health no one ought to drink ice water, for it has occasioned fatal in-' flauiutions of he stomach and bowels, . aud , sometimes sudden death. The", temptation to fiink it is very great in summer; to use it at all with any de-' groe of safety, the person should take ' but a siogle swallow at a time, take, the glass from the lips for half amin-' ute, and then another swallow, an ; b6 on. It will be found that in this way" it becomes disagreeable after a few. mouthfuls. On tho other hand, icw it' Belf may be taken as freely as possi ble, not only without injury, but with the most striking advantage in dan gerous forms of disease. , If broken in sizes of P offceanj' and swallowed as freely ad pfattlcS- Liu, without fiinch-v chewing orcruh4r hig between the teeth, it will often, be eflicicnt in checking various kinds of diarrhoea, and has cured violent cases of .Asiatic cholera. A kind of cushion of powdered ice kept to the entire scalrt, has allayed" violent inllamations ot the brain, ar-, rested fearful convulsions induced by too much blood there. In croup, wa- ter, as cold as ice can make it, applied, freely to the throat, neck and chest, with a spongo or cloth, very often af fords an almost miraculous relief, and if this be followed by drinking copi ously of the 6a me ice-cold element, the wetted parts wiped dry, and the child be wrapped up well in the bedV clothes, it falls into a delightful and life giving slumber. AU inflamationa internal or external, are promptly sub dued by the application of ice or ice water, because it is converted into steam and rapidly conveys away the extra heat, aud also diminishes the quantity of blood iu'the vessels of the part. A pieco of ico laid on the wrist will often arrest violent bleeding of the' nose. To drink any ice-col 1 liquid at meals retards digestion, chills the body, and has been known to induce the most dangerous internal conges tions. Itefrigeratora constructed to' have the ice above, are as philosaphi cal as they are healthful, lor the ice' does not come in contact with the wa ter or other contents, yet keeps them nil nearly ice cold. If tho ice is put in milk or on butter, and theso are hot used ut tho time, they lose their fresh ness and become sour' and stale, for the essential nature of both is changod when once frozen and then thawed.-1 llaWt Journal of Health.
