The King and Queen of Italy have been visiting Berlin,

to the great pleasure of the German people, and the great dis- pleasure of the French. It is believed that the King desires to come to an understanding with the German Court as to the extent to which the Triple Alliance binds him to remain under arms ; and Admiral Brin, the Italian Foreign Minister, has held a long and, it is said, " most satisfactory " interview with General von Caprivi. It seems probable that they have devised some method by which a considerable number of soldiers may be sent home without greatly delaying mobilisation.
