Mars and Matrimony.

--The Austrian Government opposes the marriage of the junior officers of its army, and after one-sixth of the officers of a regiment have been married, others must apply to the Emperor for permission to wed. No pensions are granted to the widows of officers; on the contrary, an army officer desiring to marry must deposit Government securities to the amount of $3,000 with the regimental paymaster, for the support of his widow in case of his death.
