EDUCATION IN AUSTRIA. The Vienna correspondent of The Times writes under date of the 12th:—" The appointment of Professor Hasner as Minister of Public Instruction, although publicly announced two days ago, has not yet been officially confirmed, and it is understood that the pro- fessor's reluctance to accept the post offered to him arises from his objections to the Concordat. The Con- cordat must and will be done away with before the work of regeneration can commence in earnest in Austria but it has its protectors in very high places, who will make ereat efforts to sustain it. It is in the field of public instruction that the influence of that obnoxious treaty or law is found to be most pernicious. The Roman Catholic schools are entirely under the control of the priests, the provincial diets have no power to resist the exercise of their authority, the lower priest- hood is again absolutely ruled by the bishops, and these are universally believed to be theenemies of progress and enlightenment. It cannot, at any rate, be denied that education in Anstriais at a lower ebb than in any other parts of Germany. Protestants and Jews are exempt from the influence of the Concordat, they can manage their own schools, and seek their salvation in their own way. They are admitted to the service of the empire on terms of perfect equality, and can preside in the Council of Ministers, or command armies in the field. But woe to the lukewarm Roman Catho- lics They seldom rise to eminence without putting on, at least outwardly, the show of piety and devotion to the Church. The hopes of the supporters of the Con- cordat rest on the assumption that it is an interna- tional treaty, and connot be annulled without the con. sent of both parties concerned. The opponents of the Concordat Msert that it interferes too much with the internal affairs of the empire to be treated otherwise than as a law of theland, and, as such, subject to con- stitutional legislation. There can be little doubt as to what the fate of the Concordat will be in Hungary, and if the ultramontaines were wise they would not resist its abrogation on this side of the Leitha. But they are not wise, and it would be idle to hope that they will ever become so on matters connected with their Church.
