THE ARCHDUKE AND THE GIPSIES. On being appealed to some time ago by the Archduke Joseph, the Austrian Emperor gave him permission to act with regard to the gipsies in Hungary as he thought best. The Archduke, who is the friend of these wild people, founded the colony of Tsigan, in the neighbourhood of his estate of Alosuth. He built them sixty small houses for sixty families, and made them apply their energies to agriculture and the trades. He named a youth of twenty, strong, tall, and hand- some, as their woiwode," and selected a pretty girl for his wife. After a course of religious instruction the pair were christened, and a few days ago their marriage took place in the Church of Alosuth. The Archduke and his managers were the witnesses. The Archduke wore the dress of a gipsy "woiwode," and, according to Romany custom, carried a tall bamboo staff, with an enormous nosegay and some brilliant drapery.
