Count Belcredi, the Austrian Minister of State, has informed all

officials by circular that they must teach the people to rely on themselves, and not interfere so much. If they will not attend to his advice, and restrict the sphere of their responsibilities, he will dismiss them. The meaning of the circular is excellent, but a decree of one line announcing that " every person in Austria is free to do without permission anything not forbidden by law " would be infinitely more effective.
