It is said that another European war i* inevitable, prance offered to buy the Duchy of Luxembourg, and Prussia refuses to sell. It seems to be agreed that France has concluded to take Luxembourg, Prussia to the contrary notwithstanding. However, we can see no such condition or menace in Napoleon ' s offer to buy. Nor is it probable that f he will embroil Europe for the possession of a little duchy whii<?h might bo wrapt up iu tho skin of Dglmar and' Charleston townships. But the " Fortres8 of Luxembourg is, next to Gibraltar, the strongest in Europe.

A paragraph appeared In this paper two'weeks ago, to the effect that the act to increase the Capital of the Pennsyl vania Railroad company, vetoed by the Governor, had " been passed over theVe to. Mr. Mann writes usrto say that.the vetoed bill did. not pass over the veto, in. the House, but only in the Senate.— We are glad to know it, and are bound to say^hat the House may take credit for Roman virtue. We took occasion to condemn the attempt made by certain legislators to raise their salaries. In justice to Mr. Mann, we must state that he fought against the proposed increases of pay while the appropriation bill was in the House. As stated last week, the . attempt to raise the salaries of members failed, and greatly to the credit of the Legislature as a body. ,s
