[?Mother stuck w as coo temp isted last night. Ko?Wh? bauueilMl however. We buvo formed a company of solJiers, and will keep on guard until we get soma help fi' in our government. Wo soM nnextraordinary Ut ?nn Viitonio for assistance, and In the meantime wo have to ho under the h imiliatmg necessity of relying partly for help ou our neighbors of iUtninorun. Humiliating Indeed to the United S.ates government, that a city of a commerce annually Ol some millions shutild have to call V, ,i,e aid of a for. ign nation to protect American citizens ir, ?i outrage and ais o to protect United States property. ?It... rcbbeis took possession of the government grounds, and there had their sentinels stationed, mid Inside the government grounds committed murder most foul. rhe United Mates government have all of this to answer for thev removed the troop.: from here, th? exact spot above s'l others that troops ate needed, pud all lite munitions ot war arc removed to Brazos Santiago, thirty miles fiom here, tbsro to si*.,], and cannons to rust and be lit for no service. Wo have |ietltioucd the powers that are at Washington to help us and send us troops, but they have (icon deaf to our entreaties?wo told tie 111 that scenes of lawless violence would be enacted here, but of no avail. No doubt that at Washbigton they have more important business to attend to than prop cling the citizens of this land from rapine and murder, lite government must send us help or we will have so leave hero, because this outrage may at any time be renewed, and we will have to keep under arms until we see whether the authorities will or will not help us. One jibing is certain, that if our enemies return they will havo a hot reception. Some of us must he killed, but they will tu.'.er mi t t. Two of the victims of the 28th had over twenty shots eich through them, and various sabre cuts, anJ one of them after death was dragged out by Iho hair ud trampled uu by the horses of ihe Ueuda. A neat spectacle for our government, is it not? Bxowxsviixe, Texas, Oct. 2,18(9. Ptoco writing you on the 30th ult. wo havo been con Etantly under arms, day and night. On the afternoon of the 30th ult., about two o'clock, wc were alarmed by the sews that our enemies buil entered the town. The alarm bell was sounded, and wo all flew to our arms. I novo za.- so humiliating a spectacle for us Americans. The streets full of women and children rushing to the ferry to pass to Motamoras, women fainting in tho streets, trmcd men rushing to our rendezvous from all points; ir.1 the most humiliating of ail, one hundred Mexican sol liters, with a piece Of artillery, paastng over the river to .bis place to aid us. We sent the Mexican soldiers with .he cannon outside the town to cut off the robbers, and in the meantime we got ready to receive them pretty hotly. However, it proved to be a false alarm; but of course we -ook eur precautions for the night, as tho chief of the horde of bandits sent us word that ho would burn the town utd kill the Americans in the morning. 1 was stationod .villi General Carva.ial and the Mexican force outside the own during ihe night, and about two o'clock A. W. of the "st lest the bell sounded the alarm agaiu, aud we were cady, and 1 thought that the lighting had commenced In iarui it. We had our cannon ready, (mrtUro lighted and 11 ready for on attack; but this alurm. like the previous me, whs nothing much?some thieves had got in tho gari-oii, and we took one of then) prisoner. There was no bleep that night. Yesterday we prepared ourselves better to resist an attack. That scoundrel (,'ortinas took the | liberty of opening tho mail hag of tho United States, outing open tho bag and taking therefrom a letter and ipenirg and reading it. and had tho Impertinence to writs o the Postmaster that ne had taken such liberty. A nice business. On the 1st Inst. Cortinaa sent us word that if we would bund over to him dve or six men from this .own to he killed, that he would leave and not burn the '?wa. We sent him word to tome and take the men if ie wanted any?that we would not give him up a dog If le wanted one. Last night wc had a bard time; a furious ain storm set In and a hard norther, and we had o be out all night; hut nothing of moment <?ok place. I am quite worn out. I have not been to bed .incc Wednesday night, and only slept about one boar /ester day. God knows how long we will havo to suffer his gtatc of things. It is a burning shame for our government to have exposed us to this humiliation. We will ??ep tho Mexican troops here until wo can feel secure, or hat the government send us help. We may be able to irgauize a lorce to go out to where Cortiuas and his band .re, and attack him; but I do not think It prudent, as many ?T t? would surely be killed in the brush. Twill let you :now ail that takes place. Do me the favor to lot our inention be known. (lblo'i G*rde?-R*?pp*n*??? ofMr.nd 1 Mrs. Barney WUUuu.

SPECIAL DESPATCHES TO THE HERALD. WaSHIXOTON, Oct 17,1859. A telegraph despatch has just been received by the Secretary of War from Mr. Garrett, President of tLe Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, stating that a serious affair has occurred at Harper's Ferry, where the United States Armory and the bridge are in possession of a large band of armed men, said to be abolitionists, but thought to be Armory men. The gunB from the Armory have been taken for offensive use, and the leadera notified our men that no trains shall pass the Armory and BiMge. Our officers were fired upon, and a laborer nearly killed. The wires being cut, we got our advices from the next station. He asks the Secretary of War to get the government to allow the military of Washington and Baltimore to go on in the three o'clock train this afternoon, and render them such assistance as may be necessary. The Cabinet are now in session upon the matter. The government immediately ordered that a company of marines from Washington barracks Bhould leave this afternoon, under the command of Colonel Harria, for Harper's Ferry, and if necessary any further assistance that may be required. ! Colonel Robert Lee, of the army, will comxfiaad I thd.Uniled States forces. He leaves in the after| noon train with a company of marines, and will be joined on the Ohio Railroad by a company of volunteers from Maryland. Troops have been ordered from Old Point. Washixgtoh, Oct 17, 1859. I A passenger who has just arrived here, who left t Harper's Ferry this morning, having been detained I there for upwards of five hours, corroborates the j statements received to-day by the Secretary of War. This gentleman, who is an Intelligent man, states | that a negro insurrection of a formidable character, headed by white men, is in active operation. They are fully armed with muskets and other arms, which they had seised at the Armory. They had, when the traki left, taken all of the white citizens, so my informant says, and held them as prisoners. They number one hundred and fifty, and recruits were coming in constantly from the surrounding country. My informant says that they told him that they would have, by one o'clock to-day, over seven hundred negroes and white men. The object of this movement was to obtain their freedom. They had cut ofi all the avenues of communication with the town, and refused to let any leave the I place. They allowed the train that my informant was in to pa?fl, after a detention of five hours, giving the conductor only five minutes to decide; if not, they would seize them and lock them up in the Armory. He says they barely escaped with their lives. The Secretary of War received some time since an anonymous letter, stating that a foray would be made by negroes, headed by white men, upon Harper's Ferry, Wheeling, and other points in Virginia, about the middle of October. At the time he thought nothing of it, and gave it no attention whatever; hut it looks from this movement aa though they have been organizing for some time, and intended to carry it out. TUB GENERAL NEW3FAPBB DESPATCHES. Laltimore, Oct. 17,1659. ? despatch just received here from Frederick, and dated this morning, states that an insurrection had broken out at Harper's Ferry, where an armed band of abolitionists have Ml possession of the government arsenal. The express train going east was twice fired into, and one of the railroad hands and a negro killed, while they were endeavoring to get the train thronghthe town. The insurrectionists stopped and arrested two men who had oome to town with a load of wheat, and seizing their wagon, loaded it with rifles, and sent them into Maryland. The insurrectionists number about two hundred and fifty whites, and are aided by a gang of negroes. At last accounts fighting was going on. Baltiiiom, Oct 17?1 P. M. It is apprehended that the aflhir at Harper's Ferry is more serious than our citizens seem willing to believe. The wires from Harper's Ferry are cut, and consequently we have no telegraphic communication beyond Monocacy Station. The Sonthcrn train which wna here at an early hour this morning has not yet arrived. It is rumored there is a stampede of negroes from this State. There are many other wild rumors, but nothing authentic aa yet The above is given just as it was received here. It seems very improbable, and should be received with great caution, wntfl confirmed by farther advioes. . Baltdmbs, Oct 17?1 P. M. Another account,'received by train, says the bridge across the Potomac waa filled with insurgents, all armed. Every light in the town was extinguished, and tho hotels closed. All the streets were in possession of the mob, and every road and lane leading thereto barricaded and guarded. Men were seen iu every quarter, with muskets And bayonets, who arre-ood the citizens, and pressed them into the service, including many , negroes. This done, the United States Arsena and Government Pay House, in which was said to be a large amount of money, and all the other nublie works, were seized by the mob. Borne were of the opinion that the otyeot was entirely to plodder and to rob the government of the funds deposited on Satorday at the Pay Hoose. During the night the mob made a demand on the Wager Hotel for provisions, and enforced the claim by a body of armed men. The citizens were in a terrible state of alarm, the insurgents having threatened to burn the town. The following lias just been received flrom Mo. nocacy, this side of Harper's Ferry:?"The mail rgent on the Western bound train has returned to Monocacy, and reports that the train was unable to get through. The town is in possession of the negroes, who arrest every one they can catoh and mprlson. The train due here at 3 P. M. could not get through, and the agent came down on an empty engine." Baltimore, Oct 17?2:30 P. M. The western train on the Baltimore and Ohi Railroad has just arrived here. Its officers confirm the statements first received touching the disturbance at Harper's Forty. Their statement is to the effect that the bridge-keeper at Harper's Ferry, perceiving that his lights had been extinguished, went to ascertain the cause, when he was pursued and fired upon by a gang of black and whites. Subsequently the train came along, when a colored man. who acted as assistant to the baggage master, was shot, receiving a mortal wound, and the conductor, Mr. Phelps, was threatened with violence if he attempted to proceed with the train. Feeling uncertain as to the condition of aflkirs, the conductor waited untQ after daylight before he ventured to proceed, having delayed the traiu six hours. Mr. Phelps says the insurrectionists number two hundred blacks and whites, and that they have full possession of the United States armory. The party is commanded or led by a man named Anderson, who had lately arrived at Harper's Ferry. Mr. Pheips also confirms the statement in a previous despatch, that the insurrectionists had seized a wagon, and loading it with muskets, had despatched it into Maryland. The military of Frederick had been ordered out Despatches have been received from President Buchanan, ordering out the United States troops at this point, and a special train is now being got ready to convey them to the scene of disturimrbance. He has also accepted the volunteered aer vices of Captain Senick's Company, of Frederick, and has likewise ordered the government troops from Old Point Comfort to proceed immediately to Harper's Ferry. This intelligence is authentic. Baltimore, Oct. 17?3:30 P. M. [ The mail' train going West, got as far as Sandy, when Mr. Hood, the baggage master and another party started on foot to the bridge. They went through the bridge, and were taken and imprisoned, but subsequently went before the captain of the insurrectionists, who refused to let anything pass. All of the eastward bound trainB lying west of Harper's Ferry, have been taken, persons from this side the river tying them together and taking off the slaves. The mail train bonnd west has returned to Monocacy. There are from five hundred to seven hundred whites and blacks concerned in the insurrection. The l United States marines at Washington are under ordera for Harper's Ferry. There is great excitement in Baltimore, and the military are moving; several companies are in readiness to tako the train, which will leave soon. Baltimore, Oct 17?1 P. M. An account from Frederick says a letter has ! been received there from a merchant at Harper's Feny, rent by a boy, who had to cross the moun tain and Bwim the river, which says that all the princi. al citiiens are imprisoned, and many have been killed; also that the Railroad agent had been shot twice, and that the watchman at the depot had been shot dead. Baltimore, Oct 17? 5 P. M. A train filled with military, including the Law Greys, City Guards, Shield's Guards, and other companies, left here at four o'clock for Harper's Ferry. Representatives of the press accompanied the military. Baltikobb, Oct 17-7 P. M. Despatches from Martinsburg, west of Harper's Ferry, received via Wheeling and Pittsburg, confirms the report of the insurrectionists having possession of the arsei)si at Harper'B Ferry, and says they have planted cannon at the bridge. All the trains have been stopped. A body of armed men was getting ready to proceed thither to clear the road. There was great excitement at Martinsburg, Va. There is great excitement here. Company F, with full ranks baa just left the armory, expecting to take a special train to-night This is a new company with a similar uniform to the Greys. The Greys leave for Harper's Ferry early in the morning. The Governor left to-night for Washington. Baltimore, Oct. 17?0 P. M. The American's special reporter telegraphs from Plane No. 4, 45 miles from Baltimore and 31 from Harper's Ferry, at 8 o'clock, that the train consists of 17 cars with 400 troops, under Major Reynolds, with a roadmaster and laborers to repair the track and telegrapbers to mend the line. Three companies from Frederick were in an advance trrin. Col. Harris, of the United States marines, commanding the expedition, follows in a special train. They will not reach Harper's Ferry before 10 o'clock. W ashtkotov, Oct. 17?4 P. M. On the receipt of the intelligence from Harper's Ferry, orders were issued for three companies of artillery at Old PoiDt, and the corps of marines at the Washington Barracks, to proceed thither without delay. The marines, ninety-three in number, left in the 3:15 afternoon train, with two twelve pound howitzers and a full supply of ammunition. It is reported that tbey are under orders to force the bridge to-night at all hasards. Colonel Faulkner accompanies them. It is reported on good authority that some weeks ago decretory Floyd received an anonymous epistle stating that about the 15th of October the abolitionists and negroes, and other disaffected persona, would make an attempt to seize the arsenal and hold the place, but the statement was so indefinite and improbable as to cause no feara of such an outbreak. Washington-, Oct. 17?3 P. M. In view of the possibility of the disturbances at Harper's Ferry extending to this vicinity, the Mayors of Washington and Alexandria have taken precautionary steps for its suppression. The President, through the Mayor of Washington, ordered a strong detachment of volunteer militia to be posted at the national and company armories, which was promptly done. Twb hundred stand of muskets and a supply of ammunition were also placed In the City Hall for emergency. It la suggested by well informed persons that the cause of the insurrection is the reported fact that not long since the contractor for the construction of a government dam at the ferry absconded, largely indebted to several hundred employers, who have taken this step to indemnify themselves by the seizure of the government funds, which it was supposed were transported thither on Saturday. A gentleman just in from Harper's Ferry thinks the blacks participated in the outbreak only on comnulsion. Richmond, Oct 17,1839. It Is reported and believed that the Governor of Virginia has ordered volunteer troops to Harper's Ferry. Moxocaov Bhidok, Oct 17?10 P. M. The train arrived here at nine o'clock. Lather Simpson, baggage master, of the mail train, gives the following particulars:?I walked np the bridge, was rikpped, but was afterwards permltteito go np and see the captain of the insurrectionists. I was taken to the armory, and saw the captain, whose name is Bill Smith. I was kept prisoner more than an hour and saw from five hundred to six hundred negroes all having arms; there were tyro or three hundred white men with them; all the houses were cloeed. I went into a tavern kept by Mr. Chambers, thirty of the inhabitants were collected there with arms, they said most of the inhabitants had left, but they declined, preferring to protect themselves. It wa9 reported that five or six persons had been shot Mr. Simpson was escorted back over the bridge by six negroes. The train with the Frederick military ia lying at Point of Bocks. A train with the directors of the Pennsylvania Railroad onboard is on the other side of Harper's Ferry. It was believed that the insurrectionists would leave as soon as St became dark. Orders have been reoeived here that the train shall stop at Sandy Hook until Col. Lee, who is following Is a special train, arrives. There are any amount of rumors, but nothing certain. Mokoc acy, Oct. 18?1 A. M. The special train, with Colonel Lee's command, passed this station at 11:30 P.M. It is supposed that there is difficulty in adjusting the breaks in the road this side of Harper's Perry, as nothing has ? nee been heard of the expedition. POSTSCRIPT. TUESDAY?A. M Battle Between the Troops and the Insorgents?Sixteen Persons Hied?The Kansas Flree State Leaders at the Head of (be Insurreetion, Ac,, Ac* Baltimore, Oct, 18?1 A. M. The Government are taking precedence to the press despatches. ? We understand that CoL Lee telegraphed that it would not be necessary to bring on troops from Fort Monroe and asks that they be detained at Fort McHenry. All the rioters now living are barricaded in the engine house in the armory enclosure. A number of citizens are imprisoned with them, whom they refuse to release. Several companies of Virginia troops are on the ground. They have placed a guard in the village. The Marines have charge of the Armory. Several citizens have been killed and several rioters have been killed also. The town has been taken possession of by com panies from Charleston, Shcphardstown, Va., and Frederick. The rioters are entrenched in the armory. They 1 held Mr. Washington and Mr. Langenfeld as pri- j ?oners. The insurrectionists are commanded by Captain 1 Brown, of Kansas notoriety. They numbered originally seventeen white men and five negroes. Several of them were shot. Two men of the Martinsburg company were shot dead, whilst charging on the armory. A portion of the insurgents have left under the command of Cook, with a large party of slaves, and are supposed to be moving toward Pennsylvania. Allen Evans, one of the insurrectionists, is lying dying here, shot through the breast. He is from Connecticut, but has been in Kansas. He says the whole scheme was got nb by Brown, who re precnted .'i a t the negroes would rise by thousands, and Maryland and Virginia be made free States. Colonel Shr.ver, of Frederick, has just had an interview with Brown in the armory. He asked to be allowed to march out with his meu, and avowed the .utention of defending himself to the last They were very srongly posted in the engine house, and cannon cannot be used against them for fear of injuring the prisoners which they still hold. Some sixteen persons are known to have been killed. Fountain Breckham, Railroad agent, was tliot dead from the Armory. Three rioters are lying dead under the bridge, shot by the Shephardstown troops in tbeir charge on the bridge. Captain Cook, who is second in the command of the insurgents, is said to be posted in the School house, four miles distant, with a largo body of runaway slaves. The armory was taken possession of about nine o'clock Sunday night It had been so quietly done that the citizens knew nothing of it until the train was stoppedCol. Lee has arrived, and thiuks there are abun dant troops here to capture the rioters. It seems certain that the original party consisted of not more than twenty white men and tlve frco oegroef* Capt. Brown had been about here, and rented a farm, four miles off, which was the rendezvous of the rioters. 1 Capt. Cooi has also lived about here, and one time taught school. All otter white men ate unknown. They are supposed, however, to be men who have been c onnected with Brown in Kansas. It is reported, but not certain, that the rioters have carried off a considerable amount of government funds. No attempt was made to pillage the town or insuit the females. Capt. Brown claims easy terms on accoont of his moderation. ADSRIOltL FROM EUROPE. ARRIVAL OF THE IIAMMONIA. The screw steamship Hammonla, Captain Schwonlin, which left Hamburg on the 3d and Southampton on tho 4thinst., arrived at this port at half past seven o'clock yesterday evening. Tne news by the North Briton, telcgrapned from Farther Point, which appeared in the Hmuu> on Monday morning, is one day later than that by the Hammouia. Our flics by the Hammouia contain so mo very interesting extracts:? A despatch from Turin, dated on the 2d hist., says:? The national subscription which has been opened for the purchase of arms for Garibaldi's cwjw d-armce is well received everywhere by the public. A despatch from Bologna, of the same day, saym? This morning the arms of Savoy were placed on all the public buildings, and on this occasion a religious festival took place. A 7* Deum was performed In the church of St. J'eironia, at which all the authorities and an immense crowd were present. The convict London bankers, Sir John Dean, Paul and Stratum, now under sentence, will be released from confinement on the 23d Inst. The London Harold says:? Wo learn from an authentic source that the Emperor of Russia wiil be at Warsaw on the lflth, and that the Russian Ambassadors in England, France, Prussia and Austria have received orders to repair to the Polish capital. The continental papers state that preparations are beiog made for an agricultural exhibition in St. Petersburg in September, 1830. Th? America* Claim to Sam Juan lain ad. [From the Ijondon Times, October 4.] A correspondent points out that it is an error to suppose that the island of San Juan has been In tho possession solely or the Hudson's Bay Company for the lost three or four years, as the Americans have had a Custom-house officer on that Island, toko letvRed tamo oaths. Hudtoti't Bay Cuntm?v, which havt betn paid by thent underpreUtt during that time. The announcement in the New York tel.-grsm to-day that the cannon on 8an Juan command Victoria Harbor is absurd, the distance from the island of San Juan to Victoria Harbor being upwards of clcvrn miles.

Lomotil, Sept. 26,1M9. My Dilib Fib?The fatal dsy of Villafranca prostrated ir.v hopes at a moment when we bad the deliverance or u'y country within eight; nay, almost within the reach of our hand, like a rii>e fruit ready to be plucked; and here I am again, a poor exile, as I was four months ago, only cider by ten yeare from the bitter pangs of disappointment. I say designedly "disappointment," and not "deceit." Of deceit 1 ranuot complain, for I took good care to guard myself and my country against eveu the possibility of deceit; but I feel my heart nearly broken by disappoint, merit, unwarranted by circumstances, unaccounted and unaccountable. | Without that thunderbolt from a dear Bey?the VClafran<a arra**t?this moment at which I write Hungnry would nave already filled a page in the annals of history than which none equal stands yet on record; because the whole nation was united, ready and resolved as scarcely ever before. All the feelings which sometimes bring division into a national household?difference of religion, language, race, and distinction of classes?had melted into one groat common resolution?to get rid of the banditti rule of the House or Austria as soon aa the war would take its logical expansion. And the positive knowledge 01 this fact only adds to the bitter pangs of my disappointment. To be thus stopped at the moment when ? <: were s -"etching out our hand to pluck the ripo fruit ol' liberty, is distresing beyond deewiption. Well, It is as it is, and must be borne. It shall be borne undespondingiy, though not without grief. I feel tranquil in my conscience that I have done the duty of an honest man and of a good citisen by not neglecting to try whether or not event* might be turned on a solid basis to the profit of rr.y native land. Andsomc conEoluti-n I have besides. I hod occasion to get reassured on the peiut that no diplomatic tricks? in fact, nothing thattne lying craft of despots may devise?will ever for a moment divert my nation from its unalterable determination to take advantage of every reasonable opportunity for reasserting its fude|iendcnce. 1 have learned "that this reoslution can as little be 1-ji ken by terrorism us it can be shaken by any concessions which the Hapshurgs may devise in the hoar of their need. I have !< arned that Hungary knows how to endure, how to wa't, hut never will el.uiige. I know that the ration is as well disciplined as it is determined. 1 have been confirmed, together with my nation, in the conviction thai no great European question can eeer receive its. dtfimitieesolution without us: nor can Europe lie brought to a settled condition without the rightg ami legitimate Claims of Hungary being taken into due account. From this conviction wo desire the certainty of our future. We believe in oar future freedom, therefore wo shall be free. The corresponding resolution has with the whole cation become a religious creed. To have learnt all this is some consolation; and one more 1 have?I have the satisfaction to know ih t by not allowing myself to be Influenced by promises, that by insisting on the guarantee of irretractible facts preliminary to my givii g th; signal for rising, I have preserved my country from great misfortunes lor aims which were not our own, and have preserved its future uncompromised? intact. This, at least, is a bright speck on the dreary horizon of my deep grief. T was particularly careful to warn my fellow countrymen in exile not to be led away by impatience, to threw up their positions which they may have gained by industry, befoic events take a "turn which wdl warrant my calling en them. I even warned, In publk: papers, my < ountry m- n in America to wait, and not to stir. Thanks to tills- precaution, Do harm has accrued to any one on my account. But the prisoners of wtr from the Hungarian regiments flr-cked spontaneously to our banner. We had already five hatatiiohs (upwards of 4,000 men) organised?alasl in thrco weeks more wc should have had 26,1*1) of tbem. When the war was brought to an untimely end. I considered it a duty to guarantee the rendition of the gallant band. I wished them 'urn heme, rather than be scattered in misery over the fi c of the earth, provided I could secure to them a si. return. I therefore insisted cm a double stipulation for thorn? that i.f amnesty and that of exemption (conge dejitntif) fr-un further Austrian military service. 1 succeeded in both regai <is. Frnuee insisted peremptorily, and Austria felt obliged to yield?both points are guaranteed as far as stipulations are guaranteed; it remains to be seen how toetria (false Austria) will execute them. On tins |mint. 1 want to be kept in knowledge, accordingly I ordered *????? He reports that some of our borne going braves may possibly write to me under your address.

Jons M Adam, Esq., 4a Hyde I'ark street, Glasgow. Tite Sardinian Circular on a Kingdom in Upper Italy. [Paris i,Oct. 2) correspondence of London Times.) A circular note has been sent by the Sardinian Minister of foreign Afliiirs to the diplomatic agents of that country m the Co-arts of London, Paris, Berlin nnd St. Petersburg, tor the purpose of communicating it to those governments. The document in question is couched, I understand. in lucid and earnest terms, and forcibly sets forth Arguments in favor of lbs formation of a strong and indeI.elidelit kingdom of Upper Italy, sufficiently powerful to counterbalance the influence of Austria, and U> keep in check her dsmineeriug teudeucics. The constitution of such a State would, it is urged, dispel the apprehensions and tranquil lxe the mind of Europe, at the same time that it fulfilled the just wishes, so loudly rud ucanimoualy expressed, of those. Italian countries which have lately shaken off tyrannical governments. The note points out tho imp< s-sibility of Piedmont's resisting Austria, should that Power at any future time think fit to attack her, unless she be to t in a more favorable position for so doing than has hitherto been secured to her. Intrenched in Venice and the quadrilateral. Austria will always press upon Italy, if there be not in (hat country "a Power capa He ?J inspiring her with reepeet. With Austria's fortresses overlooking her Jotnbard provinces, and with Austrian Duk. s established by Austrian Intluence in the other countries ad.iacent, Sardinia would find hcraelf | hi mined in by hostile governments, and bar rcsistanco to an attack might bo desperate but must be Ineffectual Signer Pabormida points out that peace made on such tuises would be In reality only a truoe, to be broken by Austria whenever she saw what she held to be a favorable opportunity. The people of Central Italy, with a true instinct of the necessities <t the case, have shown?it is with great justice argued In the pot..?by their ree?w/ conduct, how indiepentalle they deem the formal,en of 'he Kiydt m rf Upper Italy. Forgetting their long standing feelings of rivalry, aud discarding oh? itffire " * * '" jealousies, the different States voted, one after the other, with the utmost order and unanimity, their own annexation to Piedmont. Their wlsb, the note proceeds to say, has the strongest claim to respect: its realization wonla not be the sanction or introduction of a new and subversive principle, or of one opposed to European law and precedent, since the principle that would be recognized has alroadv been acted upon in various European countries, in Greece, ta Belgium, nnrt tn the fanuWaa Prinriiw.'jlK0, ni'l <n ?:* It Ik to it* application t! at tb<- present Kmprmr ' f 'No 1,'h'tt ?*0*Di '14Jd tlio present dynasty iu ftlg* Tt Jk/ I i v "'1" *" sovereigns or Great Britain.
