first kindled by the Jesuits, and the higher Catholic clergy inflamed it. In this country hardly any marriage of persons belonging to both communions takes place, except the Protestant party engages to become Catholic, or, at least, to suffer his children to receive a Catholic education. The conversion of Catholics to Protestantism is rendered extremely difficult : not merely by the authorized arguments employed by the Catholic clergy, during six weeks previous to such conversion ; in order to induce the applicant to remain a steady member of the Romish communion : but also by the terrors of imprisonment, stripes, and other violences. It is even said, that justice itself is biassed, on these occasions; and that absolutions for false evidence are not uncommon. During the last war, when a conscription took place, every art was used to enrol Protestants, as soldiers, that they might perish by the sword of the enemy. Protestants are excluded from public offices. Protestant books undergo severe investigation, and few which are sound in their principles are allowed. The Catholic clergy even wished to prohibit Protestants from going to any German university for education. Protestan's who are zealous, are represented as seditious : those who are quiet, are sneered at as Atheists. A spirit of fanatical 'bigotry prevails, at which enlightened and liberal Catholics themselves, are terrified. It is again become the fashion, on the anniversary day of Corpus Christi, to preach controversial sermons against the Protestants. . Various religious orders are revived ; and the education of youth is exclusively entrusted to the Catholic clergy. Art. XVII. Militarischer Kalender : Military Almanack for 1805.

He calculates its amount at 425,000 men : whereas Storch, who appears to have obtained more accurate estimates, gives 493,000, for its true total.

Among other information, as well historical as local, this number states the population of the Tyrol, including the bishoprics of Trent and Brixen, at 686,466 inhabitants in the year 1804.

The city of Lindau was ceded to Austria in that year. Art. XIX. Versuch uber die deutschen Bewohner der Oesterreichischen

Monarchie, Essay on the German Inhabitants of the Austrian Dominions. 2 vols. 8vo. Bureau des Arts. Vienna.

"I'he author of this work, is Mr. Joseph Rohrer, Commissary-General of the Police at Lemberg, who, by his frequent journeys in all parts of

the

the Austrian territories, has examined almost every thing in person ; and has collected many important facts relative to the statistical history of these states.

This work, with the two following, combine a mass of information almost wholly new. They are divided into_1. Population.-2. Bodily Constitution.-3. Food.-4. Dresses.-5. Occupations.-6. Arts and Labours.-7. Character.--8. Religion.-9. Manners of the Inhabitants.

The number of the German inbabitants of the Austrian States is, 6,300,000, making not more than one-fourth part of the whole population; but by far the most important part in respect to activity, commerce, industry, and ingenuity in general.

The Austrian has considerable bodily strength, and loves good cheer. The Emperor Joseph II. added greatly to the advantages of his people, by infusing and directing a spirit of activity, of industry, and of commercial adventure, among them. Arts and letters are in esteem ; and especially music and engraving ; in which Austrią and Bohemia have produced excellent professors. Letters, properly speaking, enjoyed but a small period of liberty, and that was during the reign of Joseph II. Art. XX. Essay on the Sclavonian Inhabitants of the Austrian Mo

narchy. By the same Author. .

Under the general name of Sclaves, or Sclavonians, the author includes Morlachians, Croats, Sclavonians, Wendesians, Mazuracians, Goralians, Hanacians, Copaniczars, and Czechs. Most of these reside in the mountainous parts; are of robust constitutions, and capable of supporting the fatigues of military duty. Their whole number is estimated at 14,115,071. The Sclavonians of the county of Arve, furnish the most portly grenadiers of the Austrian army. They have some industry: but much remains to be done to render their civilization complete, Art. XXI. Essay on the Jews of the Austrian Monarchy. By the same

Author.

This part of our author's labours is, perhaps, the most interesting, as it contains various plans for rendering the Jews useful to the community.

The general principle adopted by M. R. is; that the state which admits Jews to the privileges of citizenship, has a right to exact from them all the duties which belong to that station : and his conclusion is, that so long as this people are suffered to evade the occupations of agriculture, trades, and regular commerce ;-so long as they are permitted to pursue their vagabond irregularities, usury, and traffic;—so long will they be miserable as a people, and a dead-weight on well organized states. It is truly remarkable, that all the endeavours of the Emperor Jasephi, whether by persuasion, encouragement, or even by constraint, effected nothing. Their number in the Austrian territories is estimated at 422,698. At Lemberg, the country of the author, they are so greatly increased, as to form one sixth-part of the population.
