The Prussian Parliament was opened on the 18th inst., in

a speech read by Count von Bismark. In it the King is made to say that as the three Orders had not agreed upon the Budget, he had carried on affairs without one ; that the revenue is im- proving, that commerce is flourishing, that the military organi- ration must be maintained with or without Parliamentary sanction, that Governineat perlists in .its design of building a strong navy, that it will out a canal from the Baltic to the North Sea, and that it is determined to settle the fate of the Duchies " in a manner corresponding to the national interest*. of Germany and the just claims of Prussia." In fact the Prussian Government intends to do as it likes in Prussia and out of it, without consulting anybody. The Chamber, not alarmed by all this political cynicism, has again elected Herr Grabowi a bitter• opponent of the Court, as its President, and in his first speech he announces his resolve to adhere to the Constitution.
