The Duke of Augustenburg, formerly a pre- tender to the sovereignty of the duchies of Sleswick and Holstein, is selling all his properties in the north of Germany previous to his taking service in the AusLrian army. The broken telegraph cable between Jamaica and Aspinwall was spliced on the 9th ult., and through communication open;,d. The Panama Star and Herald hopes that the troubles with regard to this cable are at an end, and that a direct and daily com- munication with the United States and Europe will be effected.

The vacancy caused at St. Thomas's Hospital, by the promotion of Mr. Wagstaffe to assistant-sur- geon, has been filled by Mr. McKeIler, late of the Royal Free Hospital.

Reid has been appointed demonstrator of anatomy, vice Mr. W. Anderson, who is appointed professor of medial science at Yeddo, Japan. —Student's Journal and Hospital Gazette. IMPERIAL FKATEUNITY.—It is remarked with a good deal of force on the Continent that there is a striking resemblance in the warmth of the late greeting of the Emperor by his brother Emperor at Vienna with that shewn at the first famous meeting of the same two august personages at Toplitz in 1800. Smce then they have several times been together, but always, as at Gastrin, on somewhat uncertain terms. Now, however, there has been a perfect abcm- d'/n in their friendship; and it is no doubt France, though beaten in this instance, which is at the bottom of all thi" fraternity, as it was France, then trium- phant at Solferiuo, which caused the mutual warmth of Francis Joseph and William of Prussia (then Prince Regent) at their first historic meeting. BELGIAN BUSINESS.—A Brussels correspon- dent writes :—The leading German papers speak very unfavourably of the Belgian school department at the ViennaExhibition. The Liberal papers'here attri- buta this to the prominence given by the Govern- ment to the exhibition maele by the brothers of the Christian doctrine, and to the neglect of the lay schools. The Belgian Minister of linance has invited a number of competent per- sons to a conference for the purpose of examining with h'm the currency question from a practical point of view. The principal subjects to be discussed will relate to the partial or entire discontinuance of the coinage of five-franc pieces, the adoption of a uniqua standard and its consequences, the mode of transition to it, and the reforms with regard to the nickal and copper money.
