Abstract

The ancient Germanic Empire, dissolved in 1806, and reconstituted as a confederacy of thirty-nine states, in 1815, is verging again towards unity in consequence of the war of 18G6 between Austria and Prussia, which ended in the expulsion of the former from the Confederation, leaving the latter as the ruling power in Germany. Pending their final union under one government, the old states of the Confederation are ranged, provisionally, under two groups, as North Germany, and South Germany. North Germany, consisting of twenty states, is under the absolute and entire leadership of Prussia, while South Germany, numbering six states, forms a loosely connected group under the ascendancy of Bavaria. The ultimate union of this group with the former is held to be unavoidable, and merely a question of time.
