THE EMPEROR WILLIAM'S HEALTH. The most, as well as the worst, that can be said about the Emperor's health (writes a Berlin correspon- dent) is that he is reaching an age at which his friends muse be prepared for any event. The rumours about his dangerous illness are unfounded. He is living quietly at Potsdam, and performing with great punctuality his accustomed work; and he hopes early in July to go to Ems. It is not generally known, but it is true, that he fainted in his apart- ments at Bahelsberg some two weeks since, and though he is fully recovered in body, his mind seems to have suffered a shock, of which traces now and then ap- pear. He is less patient with his friends. He is keenly irritated at slight disappointments, especially in public affairs, and he shows in other ways the growing nervous- ness peculiar to old age. This is the substance of what may be said about the case. A regency is hardly yet a political possibility. Tbementionof sucha-scheme would not be tolerated by the Emperor, and might accelerate a crisis in his condition. But the most aignincitn. proof that Prince Bismnk does not mean to be taken by surprise is the fact, now beyond dispute, that he has made his peace with the Crown Prince. The overtures came from the Chancellor himself. The appointment of Count Munster, a personal friend of the Crown Prince, as Ambassador to England, was interpreted at the time as a concession to the necessities of the situation and it is possible that, with a view to flattering his future master, the Prince may have suggested, in his suave manner, that in certain contingencies it might be expedient to appoint a regent, &c. That the rumour about a regency never had any more substantial basis, the correspondent is convinced.
