GERMANY. FRANKFORT, 17TH of JULY.—The central provisional power has made known to all the governments of Germany that the Vicar of the Empire had named his responsible ministers, and that the exercise of the rights attributed to the central provisional power had commenced. It has further, in its communication, stated that it counted upon the active concurrence of all the governments of Germany, which desire to procure for the people the blessings of liberty, independence, and peace. The central provisional power has expressed a wish that the several Governments should, in conformity with the law of the 28th of June, 1848, name as soon as possible their plenipotentiaries, with whom it may commence relations. It also put forward its desire to know, as accurately as possible, the wants of the governments and people of Germany; and hoped that frank communications to that effect would be made to the demands contained, in which every satisfaction would be given. With regard to the new Cabinet, it appears probable that if the following nominations are as good as those already made, it may reckon on a working majority of between 360 and 400, out of 550 usually present. Grave complications. however, arc apprehended on the Hanoverian question, and what effect they may produce on the King it is impossible to say. FRANKFORT, JULY 18.—The King of Bavaria is to meet the Archduke Regent at Ilatisbon, where great festivities are in preparation to receive the Imperial guest. The suppression throughout Germany of such democratic clubs as prove openly dangerous proceeds rapidly. COPENHAGEN, JULY 17.-—A number of troops have just left, partly by sea and partly by land, to join the army, and 10,000 men, whose service had expired, are to be called out. The armistice is reported to be broken off. We hope to have the assistance of England and Sweden, as we had consented to abide by the armistice proposed by those countries. The Lubeck paper adds a further communication from Copenha- gen of the same date The settlement of the armistice is broken off. Mr. Riedtz. returned from head quarters yester- day with this intelligence." The Prussian Envoy, Count Portales, urged General Wrangel to adopt, unconditionally, the terms of the armistice agreed at Malmo, and in vain reminded the General of his duties to Prussia but Wrangel was firm, declaring that he owed his obedience to the Regent e 0 of Germany, and would only give his consent on the following conditionsThat the armistice be agreed to by the Central Goyernment; that the actual position of the two armies be maintained during its observance and that the authority of the Provisional Government of the Dutchies be recognised until peace might be concluded. The struggle will therefore be recommenced as a warlike feeling, pervades the Frankfort Assembly, and Denmark cannot honourably consent to far- ther concession." Russia has placed its fleet lying at Moen at the disposal, of King Osar.
