He regards it as the most providential dis- pensation of his life that on several occa- sions he has had Prince Bisronrck by hli side The Kalner'n Grateful Remembrance. U hat the prince has achieved for and Germany aud what the prince has boon to him and the house of his predecessors, be will ever preserve in grateful remembrance. Bismarck's wise and energetic policy of peace, by which his majesty is resolved to be guided in the future, being fully con- vinced of its correctness, will always be re- membered abroad and well deserved recog- nition It is not in the emperor's power to reward Bismarck for his services, but ds a sign of lasting thanks he confers upon him the dignity of Duko of Lauenburg and pre- sents him with a life size oil painting of himself "God Bless You Tn a second rescript the emperor Bismarck as military liader for his Invalna- ble services in the army during the time of William I and to the present rtny, adding that he knowb he will be at one with the ai iuy by retaining BKmarck in the highest rank by appointing him a field marshul general and a colonel general of cavalry.

The North German Gazette says thut Prince Bismarck's resignation was mainly due to constitutional questions, such as the limits of ministerial responsibility and the relations of tho president of the PnifHian ministry with his colleagues The says that Fringe Bismarck never opposed the labor conference m the staatsrath. Dr Lucnnur, chief of the civil cabinet, accompanied by Gen Habnke, formally waited upon Prince Bismarck and presented the emperoi 's acceptance of his resignation.

The difference in character is discernible in their gait that of Bismarck being sharp and heavy, while that of Caprivi is deliberate and of_ leisurely elegance.
