Maximilian of Bavaria, leader of the German Band in its

attack on Denmark, died on Thursday, the 10th inst., of the same disease as Frederick VII. His successor, Ludwig II., is a young man of eighteen, of whose character, of course, very little is known. If he retains the same advisers the event will, naturally, make little change in Germany ; but a new sovereign is accessible to new influences, and Government in Bavaria is still very nearly a personal matter.
