GERMANY. THE KING OF PRUSSIA EMPEROR OF GERMANY. The adjourned division 011 the election of the hereditary Sovereignty of the German empire was proceeded with in the sitting of the Frankfort Parliament on the 28th instant. After some minor divisions on amendments which had been moved by some members of the Left, the Speaker Called on each individual member by name to pronounce the name of the German Prince whom he (the member called upon) wished to see at the head of the Empire. The votes were given amidst the deepest silence. Some members would give no vote at all, and said that they declined to vote,-— that they would elect no Prince; and one of them, the Prince of Waldburg Zeil, protested that he was not an elector. But those who declined to vote were merely excep- tions to the general rule, and votes were given by no less than 538 members. The summing up of the different votes showed that 290 voices had been given for his Majesty the King of Prussia, who was thus, according to the provisions of tlie Constitution which has been enacted by Parliament, elected to the dignity of an Emperor of Germany. The number of members who refused to vote on the division was 248. When the news of the choice of the Assembly spread out of doors the bells were rung, and the air was filled with the chec-i-s of the people. A deputation of twenty-four members, with the Speaker of the House, is about to proceed to Berlin to offer the Imperial Crown of Germany to the King of Prussia.
