The Timet urges tiro House of Commons to take the good, eliminate tbe bad, supply what is defi cient, amend what is canable of correction, and resist all attempts to enlist under the banner of this or that can for office. All that was known of the result of the elections for the German Parliament appears to bo favorable to the liberal cause. At Berlin and other great cities tho can didates of that side havo triumphed. Some curious in cidents are related. II. de Munchausen, the old Hano verian Minister, the author of the protest, has been chosen at Hanover.

The goremtnent counts upon the twenty millions which the Italian gov ernment has to pay In March for arrears of the public debt of 1809, and etghtoon millions more from the same source for the annual Interest on the Pontifical debt allotted to tho former proviuceu of the Church. A Vienna teller, in the Paris LiterU, says.? The change of Ministry which has Just been effected in Austria is not one ot persons only, as is often seen else where; it Is before all a nulleal change in the polite al system. How many or them have not already been triod in tho Austrian empire since the Revolution of 18481 Absolutism hss been employed in three diltferent wave successively; Urst, there wes the military absolutism, then the bureaucratic, and, lastly, the clerical. Then oomee the Keichsrath, reinforced by mere ?hsdossof pro vinftal States. Then Count Agcnor Goliichnw-ki and the diploma of October with its federalist tendencies. Next, M do Scbuierling and the constitution of February with its centralist leanings. Then nt last. Count Bsicredl and the suspension of the constitution, bringing in its wake a form of government which was neither absolutism, norconstitutionalism. nor federalism, nor centralism; whlcb, in a word, had no tixed character et all In what have all these protended statesmen, all these systems ended * In nothing else than creating for the monarchy of the Hapsburgs a succession or new embarrassments, and to bringing the c >untry to the verv verge of ruin. The failure of Mr. N. J. Amies, small ware manufac turer, of Gaytborn, England, with ?30.000 of liabilities, has been announced. Messrs. W Had field At Co., ef Higher Ardwick and Warrington, have suspended pay* meat A cunous circumstance waa noticed at the recent ooentng ef tho Diet of the Grand Puehy of (inland. After the Governor had read the opening speech in the Ruwitan language, tho Senator Peterson gavn it in Bwodieb and Finnish. The Meorbsl of the country re plied in the name of the nobility, aud the Archbishop in that of the clergy, in Frenoti; the Speaker of the citl r?n -lass in Swedish, and that of the peasants in Fin nish. The intentions of the Turkish government respecting the iDhabiiante of Crete cannot but he, the Opimm Ka tiemaU convolves, in untoon With the declaration made In Queen Victoria's speech on opening the Parliament, that "the combined effort* of the Cabinets of I-ondon, Paris eud St. Petersburg have tended to bring about bel ter relations between the Porte and its Christian sub jects." Consequently a certain amount of independence must, the writer thinks, be accorded to that portion of tho Turkish subject, aud their position rendered support able. The Peris Fatrir has the subjoined observation" on the now Ministry just formed et Constantinople We believe we are not wroog iu saving tbel those changes are of a great political significance. The new (ablnct may be ca.led n reform one, as >11 the men com pocmg it. without exception, have long been the warmest advocates of progress. At present, summoned to the councils of the sovereign, and on the morrow ol event* which have attracted attention to the situation of lho|Kast, we have no douht that the new Ministers are determined to -eek the solution of tbe pending questions by satta fying the tntrresta of tbe different populations subject to the Sultan's ec -pire without exception of race or re ligion.

The separation from the North sanctioned by the Peace ef Prague to deeply fell and everybody finds that the situation cannot last very long. The Independent existence granted to Baden, Wurtemberg, Bavaria and to two-thirda of the Duchy of Reese Darmstadt to a gift uf tbo Prussians The gov eramonta of these four (Hates are at a loet to know what tbey shall do with their national independence. They are wise enough to see they cannot exist without leaning on a great Power, unless through ihe mod.urn of UM mind of snotbur (Southern) Bismarck, thry can amalgamate and make of themselves a Power a* strong as that of Prussia In lbs North. If they were to follow tbe traditions sf the reigning families they mglu choose Francs; bat Ibis Just now or si asy time tor the future will remain simply Impossible Any attempt to lean on a foreign Power would place those Prince. In the eery position In which we now find the Iste King of Hanover and tbs servant-kicking Elector of Hesse. .Me long as lbs ambitious tendencies of Prussia were nnly sohemes, many people disapproved of them for fleer that Prussia might have not only to fight Austria, but Francs also, and that bar chance In such a bloody war N rn UAfrffJH am. Wans the Ptnn. will 8-hemes ha\ e become fact", the Prus-San generals shown their ability ami -olJiers their courage, oveu cau tious pe pie ate no lun ,or afranl of a war with France. The state of iliat coua' y is sueh that <>nlr the antago nist of tho Ea|W?r could wish him In piok a quarrel w >a PrusMn. l'uo French people liavu been disappointed not only with regard to foreign, hut also on their own personal affair*. Cousidt tl..s, tbo Euiperor may hesilalo to embark again in a hazardous undertaking, although he may look with a jealous eye on Prussia's ris ing power, and feel sure that the army would hail with enthusiasm the order to march on the Rhine. In a war, tho first success depends mainly on the ability of gen erals and other things more or less dependent on chance, and independent of the character of the strug gling nations; but the Anal success must be considered as resulting from the condition of the people* of the antagonistic countries provided their forces are In something like equal numbers. Should the French go to war with Prussia thoy may gain battles; they probably wonld at first; but in the end they must be smashed, and If so, Prussia will carry out her cher ished projects of 1816 and 1814. This conviction lives In the hearts of the people of Southern as well as of Northern Germany. Por the States of Soutbora Germany to lean on Austria would bo a condition of thinvs that could not be oeter tained by any rational man. They cannot lean on a State that la shaken to lis very foundations. Only the ultra Roman Catholic and aristooratlo party have net set aside their old confidence in the Concordat and the fortunes of Austria. The liberal parties of the South bed formerly n oertain sympathy with Austria on account of her Oer man population and German ideas; but this sympathy has died away since it has become evident that the Aus trlan government intends leaning on its Magyar, rather than its German subjects The strongest counter-weight against a lasting separa tion from the North of Germany Is the material interests the countries and pooplo ?ave o common?the North for tho South, and vice vena. The trade and manufac tures of the South would be ruined from the day they were excluded from the Zollverein. Prussia bos thus a lever in her bands, which she will freely mako use of, to make the independent governments of the South quite pliable and yielding to her will. All this must bo considered when we weivh the decla ration of the Bavarian Prime Minister, Prince Hohen lnhe, respecting an alliance with France and also with Austria. In accordance with his Invitation, If not his order, the Secretaries of Slate for war and foreign affairs will soon, meet in order to form rales for the assimilation of tboir army to that of Prussia. Homo people appear afraid of such meeting, feeling afraid that si Southern confederacy might result from It; but this fear appears perfectly groundless, The Bavaiian Miui-tor in his address appears to reject the idea of a Southern confederacy, the lorination of which seems all the more impossible .since Haden wonld not and Hesso Darmstadt could not enter it It would be mere foolerv, mildness, for the government of the latter Duchy to enter tain any proposition contrary to Prussia's viows, since the Prussians have a strong garrison at Mayence and the command of about one-half tho He.-sian troops Importunate advocates for the union wish the Southern States to enter the Northern confederation at once. The peace of Prague would not be an impediment, as the Southern States have been by that document recognized independent. They may enter into an alliance with Prussia, and even place their troops undor the command of Prussian generals. But the question arises, would Prussia aes re ft for ths present? When peace was patched up last summer, Prussia is sa d to liavo given way to the summons of the French Kmperor, and contentod herself with a contodoralion of the Northern States Bismarck may have feigned to respect the wishes of Napoleon, but ho may also have considered It his interest not to extend tbo confedera tion all over Germany at oncc. Three months ago the feeling of animosity In the Southern States towards Prussia was stronger than it is now, Indeed, was very intense, and oven now deputies trom Bavaria or Wur teniburg would nut bo welcomed In the Parliament, as, notwithstanding their sympathy for tho Union, they would strengthen the opposition. When the propositions which Bismarck will make in behalf of his government have been accepted, and the held on tho lately acquired States lightened with the sanction of their own delegates, thon, but not till thon may Pr?s sia think It time to absorb the Southern States. The way for this will lie smoothed during the meeting of the Parliament in Berlin next spring. I think I have shown that It w yet difficult to hazard an opinion on the future of the Southern Slates or Germany; that they onnntt join Francs; that they will not attempt to And sup* in Austria, knowing that country could not afford that of themselves they cannot form a lasting confi crocj- of Mufflcient power to outlive the probable brewing in Europe; and that although willing te deri their n-ristaooe nad supporttrom Prussia 'that coun is not prepared to afford It. Mm For the present nothing will be done either by Ba< or Wurtemberg. In tho future we may have gre?4 changes in those countries, and the meat probable on* * the Union of their forces to the remainder of the Gen men family at the Narth. BOHEMIA.

Ministry waa tottering to Ita fail, waa sooner and more suddenly proved than I bad anticipated myself, fount Bnieredi has now plenty of I Maura time to reflect on the fallacy of ha Idea tbat If Sobmerling could have ruled without the Czechs for flvo years be mKbt he able to govern without the support of the Germans as long. Our city was thrown into a great ex citement by the news of bis fell But elthough the adherents of tbe February constitution?i. e., the Ger mans?had wished bis fall, bis dismissal in tbe present moment baa not satisfied them. Tbe confusion be bad caused should have neon carried to ita end by him, and be should not have been allowed to withdraw and leave it to bis successor hot ore it was reeotvod in a natural way. At all events bis fall spared tbe world tbe piteous spec tac'e ol an Austrian Parliament assembling in a German oity without one representative of the German people. The Germans are fall of hopes although they do not oxnlt yet. as they are by no mesne quite ao sure of their expectations twin : fully answered. "We are not desir ous of being always in tbe opposition," says the Gor man paper of this place; "H Is not the strife we serve, but the cause. Rut we are too mindful of the many bittor lesion* we received to selss on (ho first favorable opportunity of indulging in a multitude of hopes. One (bet, however, we cannot forbear Mating, vta: Mo pes simism tig everywhere In Austria ban, by the sew measures of tha government, received a severe shock, while abroad the hopes of a consolidation of Aastria have been raised." But the Czechs! They are flrsntlo with rage at tbe events of the week. Row soon the gay frostwork of their dreams was dissolved. Now tbey threaten tbe gov ernment wtth an intent of imitating tbe example set by tbe Hungarians, and think that by perseverance and by insisting upon their protended mediaeval rights soon to onldo the Hungarians; then, tbey say, tbe voice of tbe Germans will have died away In tbe wind. Their pa per* declare all such Cxoch deputies at will enter tbe Parliament for tbe couniriea and kingdoms on this side of tbe Lettba "to be traitors, aud give tbem up to tbe curst of the Czech nation." Their latest attempt at alarming the government Is tbat they pretend tbat Bismarck, seeing tbo utter Impossibility of keeping up the present state of things In Saxony, Intended to annex Saxony, and to Indemnify the King of .-axony for bis loss by procuring btm tbe kingdom of Bohemia, for which purpose a now war should he entered upon by Prussia. They give to understand that now the Czechs htul no longer any interest in tbo existence of Austria, which henceforward would be ruled by tbe Germans. In future tbey would only care for tbo Interests of tbo Czech nation, witbout considering those of tbe empire. But, in spite of all thoee hollow phraaes and declama tions, I bavo great reaaon to snppoee that in tbe laat moment tbey will not hesitate to eator tbe great Impe rial Parliament, and if tbey do not nobody but they will be tbe losers. Tbe elections for tbe Bohemian Diet now being at an end, wn can form n correct idea of bow the next Diet will be composed. The elections of tbe great landed pro prietors were in favor of the high tones, hence tbe op ponents of the constitution will bavo a maiorfy of elgn ty-four. But what are the components of this majority f For however unnatural an alliance of the high tortus and the clergy on tbe one band, and tbe democratic Czechs on tbo other, may appear, they agree in one pxlnt. viz. the dislike of the constitution; the former bemuse they art averse to any constitution whatever, the latter b< cause they think It to be an obstacle to their estab bailing an independent national State, In which they would have tbo supremacy over tbo Germans, whom they conld then oppress to their heart's contest. In tbo flint put of the Inst session tbe < sto was differ ent. 1 boa the majority of the great landed proprietors were adherents of tbe ronstttntion, eo that the Geimsna were It the majority. There were but few who gauered about < onus Clatn-Msrtlnltt and Leo Then, the f.ther of our "Concordat" with Rome. But from tbe terymo ment Count Beicred! waa appointed t^veroor of (She. mta tbelr number Increased. ??, istry and the constitution woe euepended by him be change m the members eleotad by the great landed prtetor was complete. Matty who MM now had hesitated to turn renegades openly declared themselves enemies to the constitution. I think that in tbe faoe of sum fact* the present government will not hesitate to propow to the imperial Parliament a bill by which aHtho privi lege* of the nubility as to a separate representation In the niets will bo abolished; for is it not monstrous that ronr hundred and fifty great landed proprietors should return almost a* many members for the I'let as belt tbe population of the whole country?that Is, two and ooo lialf millions?

Position in Society. 8t PmcRXHPRo. Feb. 1, 1S?7 Lieutenant Colonel Thomas W. Knox, of the Russian American Telegraph Company, reached this capital on on Wednesday last, from San Francisco, vis the over land route through Siberia His personal appearance at present does net suggeet to eny one thet he has under gone any severe hardships or sufferings in the lengthy trip he has completed, hut, on the contrary, rather inti mates that he lived a very jolly eort of life, with plenty to eat and a satisfactory quantity of sleep, and other solid comforts. In fact, I bare never seen the bold traveller looking in more robust end vigorous health. He has not been ill e single moment aince leaving the Golden Gate, end has accomplished the entire journey or fourteen thousand Ave hundred milee without accident or unexpected discomfort Leaving San Francisco the 23d of June lest, on a little steamer one hundred and eighty tons burthen, named the George a Wright, belonging to the Western Union Telegraph Company, of the United States, carrying the Bngineer ln-Cbief, Cel. Charles 8. Bulkley. be reached Petropauiovskl, capital of Kamtschatka, in thirty days Thence, after sojourning eleven days In this portion of Kamtschatka, Col. Knox sailed on the Russian corvette Variag for Geshiga, at the heed of the Okhotsk 8ea, where he arrived after a trip of nine days. After remaining there nine days in consultation with Major Abuse. Chief of the Siberian Construction, he sailed again lor the mouth of the Amoor river, in tbe Russian corvette, touching at the port of Okhotsk, for e single day, and then proceeding by tbe La Perouse straits and the Gulf of Tsrtary. He arrlvod at the mouth of the Amoor tbe 1st of September, at the little Russian city of Nicolaofski. Remaining there six days, where be recoivcd every attention and courtesy from Admiral Fulyhelm, Gov ernor of tho sea coast provinces, end Mr. H. Q. O. Chase, American Consul, a very worthy official and a genial companion, he took passage in a small steamer up the Ainoor, spending thirty days on the voyage. On tho way ho visltod the various smtll settlements on the bangs of tho Amoor find the Mongol cify or Aigoon, the largest city In Northern China. The Amoor is describod as an exceedingly picturesque stream. The head of navigation is two thousand two hundred miles from the mouth of the river, which is ex ceedingly broad In places at the lower part, with e cur rent less rapid and powerful than the Mississippi. At certain points it resembles tho magnificent Hudson, but j more grind and majestic in its mountain sronery. At other points it is like the SC Lawrence, studded with | islands. In the lower portions the country is fcrtiio and .rich, whilo in tbe upper, where it is more hilly and mountainous, it Is hard and sterile. Colonel Knox reached Stratensk, tho head or naviga tion on the Amoor, the 20th or Octolier, and proceeded immediately, by Russian post. In a westerly dlrcclion Having letters to tbe Govornor of tbo'Trans-Barca! at Cbetah, the capital of that province, he remained there four days to receive the generous hospitalities of tho Governor, Major General Hitman, engage in an antelope hunt, and gain noeded rest. Next he proceeded to Kiachta and Malmai chin, for many years the seat of commerce between Russia and CninA, where the most liberal hospitality was lavished upon him, both br the Russian and Chinose authorities. After a stay of some days at this point he nroceeded to Irkoutsk, the capital of Eastern Siberia, whore He remained four weeks. Very aeaa after hie arrival there Governor General Karsackoff gave an official dinner in hooer of hie American visitor, at whit* he look oc R?? ff#od rotations and frieadly deal taSSSftt**?-* u,# government and tbe Unl'ed States, and proposed h? tbe final toast of the en PlfkMdwit. Congress end people of the Colonel Knox responded briefly and oflhred e toast to ?'the Emperor of an the RussiaaJ' In addition to this entertainment the Mayor of Irkoutak end a number of leading merchants gave each an official dinner to Colonol ??<" ??d ?? ???? Htmarture a grand farewell dinner wee given, and the ferry boat on which he crossed the river Aurora wee decorated with American end Russian flare. ?. ?nd flylM for the first time on that *ad the entire populace turned out to bid God speed to the voyager. From Irkoutak he took hie own el?dge, end by tbo regular post route travelling rapidly between the towns, halting for rest at the princi R*1 'was. such as Krssnogorsk, Tomsk, Barnaoul, in the Altai Mountains, Fkaterineburg. la the Moun tales, Zasaa, Nigni Novgorod aud Moscow, thence by roll to this point. Throughout hie ontire journey he wee the recipient of many kind attentions and hos pitalities from tbe officials and prominent citizen*, who war# delighted In being able to eld en American, who ie not coramonlv seen in their country. Indeod, Colonel Knoc is the first American who has erer made tho tour ney Yom Sen Francisco to St. Petersburg, vie this par ttcukr route, and the filth American who baa over cr<*'* whole of Siberia, between the Amoor river end the Ural Mountains, which separate Asia from KurORt. .iIwi!Ltbto "derange trip he has aot met with the sUghhat accident whatever. Or course It wee attended by a aood deal of phvaica! fatlguo; bat the novelty and beauty of much of the country through which the travel - lor pamg relieves It In e great measure of wearieesa. Since Ms arrival hero the Colonel feels the natural effects oT the-esction of the severe journey, but la only tempo rarily ndispoeed. He will remain here for a brief period, and wll probably roach America by wey of tbo Atleatlc before he cloee of the present vosr.

I To-day the session of CUa I'russun Chambers wai closed by the King in parson, with n speech, the con tents of which will have rearhed you per telegraph lent before tl? receipt of tbia letter. It it the first sessior for the laat five yean that has terminated without i kick-up between King and Commons, and the first wnich. at lea?t in its latter part, ainoe It met again after the ad journment. has proceeded amid the utter indifference ol the public. The liberal majority having ^solved U avoid a conflict at any price, and to accept the smallest favors that might be granted by the Ministry; the dis cushions had assum'd a character of lameness and half heartednesa which deprived tbern of all interest. The only question in which they showed fight, that ol the dotations, was settled afier all by a compromise which, in fact, gave the government everything they asked for, and if some partial reforms have been midf it is because they had little or no political bearing, and Ministers did not think it worth Itaolr while to oppos. them. An attempt to repair a blunder committed in Hie early part or the ness on, when in their h-.-ry to pa' the law ofeieciion lor the new Herman Parliament pro ved by Bismarck, they b id forgotten to provide that the reports of its proceedings should be exempted from the Prussian censorship, was frustrated by the vote ol the upper house, and a motion Tor removing ofienree ol the press rrom tho cognizance or the royal judges and leslorinp trial by jury disappeared in tho committee ap|Miiuted to deliberate upon It, and was never heard ol more. Nevertheless, the President, M. Korckenbeck, in reviewing the session, declared Its results to have been eminently satisfactory, enumerated all the bills that had passed and all that had not passed?among which were the only few that "originated in tho initiative of tbo House"?and finally concluded with three cheers for the King, which, as in duty bound, were vociferously joined in by the assembly. Almoet simultaneously with the Chambers, the con ferences of Plenipotentiaries from the North German Stales have come to an end. after dragging on much longor than was expected by the public, or than was fore seen bv the Prussian gov ernment.
