The latest account from Germany is that the Austrian and
Prussian Governments have made up their differences, and that Kaiser and King are to meet at Salzburg. The basis of accom- modation is saki to be a joint occupation of the Duchies for -an indefinite time, but the Duchies to be governed separately, the Prussian Commissioner ruling Schleswig, and the Austrian Holstein. If this account were true, the "sea-surrounded Duchies" would be separated after all, but the statement needs confirmation. It only postpones the difficulty, and even now what is to become of Kiel, or the Canal, or the Prussian claim to con-
scription in both Duchies? That some arrangement may be made is probable, as Austria is unable to go to war, but it will scarcely be this.
