Benedetti, the Frenoh Ambassador, and the Count do Barral, Italian Minister at Berlin, have I accompanied the King to the Prussian head-quarters at Brunn. Negotiations are in progress for a truce of three days, and not for an armistice. m, ffiMo, ■; i„ BERLIN, JULT' 136. The omoial of to-d^y says:—- The assertions of various newspapers that Prussia has demanded the cession of Bohemia and Moravia as a condition of peace are entirely unfounded. A glance at the map shows that the possession of these countries by-Prnssia. would got be.: a source bf strength but of weakness. National interests also would render such an acquisition undesirable. The aim of the policy of Prussia is directed towards the establishment of a new Confederation and the convocation of a German Par- liament. Connection with countries only in part appertaining to German nationality would place obstacles in the way of the assembly of the Parlia- ment."

Eleven Prussian regiments entered this town yes- terday and to-day without opposition. The inhabi- tants maintained a tranquil attitude, and furnished supplies to the troops as far as they were able. The King of Prussia has just arrived here, and thefhead- quarters have been established at the residence of the governor. His Majesty was received by the Bishop of Brunn, Count Schaffgalsch, the burgomaster, and the authorities, who urged the king to spare the city, and treat the inhabitants with lenity. His Majesty replied in nearly the following terms:—" I am not here of my free choice or free will, but because the Emperor of Austria has forced me into war. I do not therefore make war against the peaceful subjects, but against the army of the Emperor. Up to the present I have been victorious, and the valour of my army in- spires me with confidence in our further success. I have been obliged to lead hither an unusually large army. It is very possible that in isolated cases the inhabitants may have cause for complaint, but this will be avoided by their readily supplying my brave troops with the necessaries of life." His Majesty has given a reception to Prince Frederick Charles, and all the Prussian generals in Brunn. 45,000 Prussian troops have been quartered upon the inhabitants, who have received them m a friendly manner. The Austrian authorities have left, taking with them the funds belonging to Government.

If, therefore, a piece of Prus- sian artillery has recently been drawn through the streets of Vienna, it can only be the field piece pre- sented to the Emperor by the King of Prussia at the time of their alliance."

His Majesty deigned to receive the prayer we addressed to him, that Vienna might not be exposed to the dangers of war. We further ex- pressed the urgent.,desire that, in view of a hostile occupation, measures might be taken with rsga-rd to the political situation, so aa to reassure and eatisty the public mind.
