AUSTRIA. VIENNA, MAY 4 (EVENING). Prussia is said to have declined all negociation on the definitive solution of the question of the Duchies on the basis proposed by Austria. An official notification in reference to the issue of the proposed Government currency is shortly expected. Pa- per money will not be issued by the Government itself, but by the National Bank of Austria, who will issue notes of one and five florins to the amount of one hun- dred and ten millions. This amount will be placed to the account of the Go- vernment, the latter reserving to themselves the right to order the issue of forty more million of florins. VIENNA, MAY 5. An Imperial decree has been promulgated to-day an- nouncing the issue of one-florin and five-florin bank notes, which are to be placed to the account of the Go- vernment. The authorisation granted to the National Bank to issue notes of these amounts for its own account is suspended, and the said notes are placed to the account of the public debt. The decree releases the National Bank of Austria from the obligation of giving speoie in payment of its notes on presentation. The latter will henceforth circulate as Government notes and must be accepted in all payments as legal tender at their full nominal value. The supervision of the same is confided to the Com- mittee of Control over the Public Debt, and the amount to be put in circulation is not to exceed one hundred and fifty millions. The National Bank will be compelled to pay in its own bank notes the equivalent for any sum presented to it (of a higher value) in one and five florin notes of the Government currency. The decree delares this financial measure to be neces- sary in order to meet the demands upon the Treasury, which have arisen in consequence of the complicated foreign relations of the empire, and the threatened out- break of war. The official Wiener Zeitung says:—' This measure, un- favourable as its effect will be upon Austrian currency is, nevertheless, the best thing that could happen in the present difficult state of affairs.' All hopes of peace are not yet abandoned. The Ministry of Marine has issued a notice, stating that surgeons are required in the naval service. 0
