I PRUSSIA AND HER ALLIES. I BERLIN, JULY 19, EVENiNG.-fn to day s sit- ting of the North Germ:tn Parliament, the Govern- ment introduced a bill demanding a credit of 120,000,000 thalers for military purposes. BERLIN, JULY 19.—In the last sitting of the Federal Council, Baron Friesen, in the name of the Saxon Government-which, as he stated, was en- tireiv at one with all the other Federal Govern- ments—declared that it agreed with all the steps hitherto taken by the President, of the Confedera- tion, and with the views which Prussia had ex- pressed on the circumstances wh:ch have brought about the present position of affairs. Baron Friesen concluded as follows:—" France demands war. Let us hope that it will be carried on with all possible speed and energy." DRESDEN. JULY 20.-The Saxon minister at Paris has been recalled. MUNICH, JULY 20.-The Bavarian minister in Berlin has been instructed by telegraph to notify to Count Bismark that in consequence of the declara- tion ot war by France against Prussia, and the fact of an invasion of German territory having taken place, the Bavarian Government, on the ground of the treaty of alliance with Prussia, and as Prussia's ally, has entered into war w,th France in conjunc- tion with all the German Governments. The Munich Chamber of Deputies have voted the extraordinary military credit of 18,200,000 florins demanded by the Government. BERLIN, JULY 20. The Crown Prince of Prussia assumes the command-in-chief of the Ger- man army of the South, and has already made the necessary communication to the courts of Munich and Stuttgardt. The buoys and seamarks in the river Weser and off the adjoining coast have been taken away, and the pilot cutters have returned to harbour. The lightships have left their stations, and the light- houses will not be lighted. Ships are ready to be sunk in the fairway, a small space being left open. The dismasted barque Knowsley, at Cuxhaven, has been towed up the Elbe. On Monday, the King of Prussia received an ad- dress from the municipality of Berlin, in which his Majesty was thanked for having repelled the un- heard of attempt made upon the dignity and inde- pendence of the nation." The King, in reply, dis- avowed all responsibility for the war, and expressed confidence in the result. We have reason to be'ieve (says the Pall Mall Gazette) that the Prussians are not so advanced in their preparations, especially in regard to the sup- ply of ammunition, as their Government could de- sire, and it is probable that it will be some days yet before they will be fuby ready for the field and L I 1 • 11 ifle report as to 1;ne rrenca advance is correct, the latter seemed determined to take advantage of this circumstance. It has been supposed that the French have a monopoly of the mitrailleuse, but this is an error. The Prussians also have a weapon of this kind, only under another iname-ktigelspritzen. A despatch received from Verviers announces that Cologne is about to be placed in a state of seige, but that the garrison of Aix la Chapelle is to be reduced. ————— —————
