Toor EzeeQenar wllrexeose this remark whan tob call to mind thaelrealsr lamed by Dr. A. Baah, the aOnlster of theinterlar In I849,aad th secret Instructions which were snbaeqnentlr forwarded by him to the provincial anthorlties Dr. Bach's circular ot the 15th of Anenst, VUS, contained the Ideas which are in yoer Excellency's circular ef the 22d cf December, 1860, bat they war expressed more clearly, more crodsalr. For a time I eonrned tha nrovinea la. trasted to my ear in the sens ef Dr. Bach's drealar, beta harp and oaUaaal fir of rescripts, ardinsoocs, and ooa - fidenttal oonunsnlaatioos forced ma to fall back on tha old system. I remained In Oee, however, because I fait that I was aa popular as any Stallholder ooold be andernoh elraamstaases. Should what I hare written giv onanoa, I shall be sorry, bat It appears to ma that at such a critical moment perfect candour Is necessary.

The costs of M1w?tii - of Commerce and Minister of PubUo Instruction are still raeaat, because fittinz men cannot be found. There is no dearth of talent, but it is extremely difncult to find high intelligence intelligence and perfect recti tad united in one and the same person. M. Meager has come here from Cronstadt, and it la rumoured that he is about to take ouioe, but persons wbo know the constitutional constitutional burgher" Intimately tell me that he haa not the requisite knowledge for a Minixteo Commerce. Some days ago you were informed that there was a great political ferment ia Bohemia. aad I now learn that Messrs. Rieger, Palacky. Braoner. and other leaders of the Czechs hare uib - lished a political programme, in which they strongly Hum on tne Historical runts ana privilege o( tne Kingdom of Ttohemla. The 'Czechs, who mar' be considered the aborigines of Bohemia, demand : " The maintenance of the runts of that kingdom In its relations with Austria. The maintenance of its rights ia its relations with the German Bund. The right to self - leeislstion in all matters which are not In connexion with foreign affairs, finances, war, and commerce, ine privilege ot sou - govern ment, wltn administrative organs widen shall be respea Bible to tne rronneiai JJiet. mere It no wish on the part of the National petty In Bohemia to quarrel with the nobles, but it cannot admit that they, "by right of birth alone, bare ft right to special politic u privilege. The Czechs declare that they consider the Slaws in Moravia their brethren, and wish to be oa theihoit Intimate terms with them, but they positively deny that they cherish Panslaristio ideas. The Gali - ciana, being unwilling to be'surpa - sed by the other nationalities, intend to petition the uovemment to appoint a Court Chancellor for Calicia, to em Dior natire Galicians in the administrative and judicial departments oi tne province, to mate use ot tne Polish language in the' public offices and schools and to place the different confession on an equality. Dr. Smolka, who was President of the Austrian Diet in 1843, will be the bearer of the petition, petition, if he can obtain permission to travel to Vienna on anch aa errand. There is a great ferment la Russian Poland and ia the Grand Duchy of Posen (it belongs to Prussia, but there is no good reason for believing that there is any direct understanding between the Poles and Hungarians. The two nationalities bare little or no sympathy for each other, the one people being crafty and intriguing, while the other is devoid of guile ; almost the only quality which they hare in common is personal bravery. The demonstration in Warsaw oa the 29th ult. was a serious affair, but people here appear to know nothing at all about it. Great crowds of oeonle went on the dsr mentioned to tha ehnrr.h In - n t: i.: - ir .J T ! U4 IUBVUW6UW!.

" Poland Is not yet jost having been sang in chorus, the congregation congregation withdrew. The police were ia great force, but no attempt was made to arrest any one. It is rumoured in the political circles of St. Petersburg that an army of 159,000 men is to be concentrated in ttussian Poland, and also that a loaa of 100,000,000 ron Dies win oe raised in uussia rroper. J The Ministerial Donau ZcUmn prints ene article alter another on the subject of Venetia. and the sense of ail of them is that Austria, is resolved not to part with Venetia unless she Is forced to do so. It has long been rumoured that Lord Cowley is coming to Vienna to treat with Austria fn the, sale of Venetia, bat it stands to reason that there can be no truth in the report, as Lord Bloomfield. the new Ambassador, will be here ia the course of the next month. Another report Is that Mr. Cob - aen u coming to negotiate ft treaty of commerce, but it is entirely deroid of foundation. It has. however, however, beea hinted to me thai Co ant Bechberg and Lord A.
