Toleration in Sweden.

--The Swedish Government has just taken an important step in the path of civilization and reform. Up to the present time no Jew has been permitted to set up any business or exercise any profession in Sweden without a special license from the Government, which license could only be obtained after much vexatious delay and considerable expense. To put, an end to this grievance the King, in accordance with the Legislative Chambers, has just decreed that every Jew, who has not been condemned for any criminal action, has permission to establish himself in Sweden without any restriction, and to follow any calling or to acquire property of any kind, under the same circumstances as the Christians in that country. There are still illiberal restrictions upon Catholics in Sweden.
