FOREIGN ITEMS. Letters from Rome assure us that the Pope has his bull of excommunication and interdict ready for the King or Sar- dinia and his partisans, to be hurled at their heads the moment the annexation of the Legations to Northern Italy is carried into effect. The Italians in California have sent as a present to King Victor Emmanuel a sword of great value and of beaiunt'. Workmanship. The hilt is in massive gold, and represents Italy, while the blade bears an appropriate inscription. We have now got an announcement of the decision to which Russia has arrived relative to the English proposals. That decision is, that these proposals are unsatisfactory, and that no permanent or good understanding can be reached unless there be a Conference of the Five Powers. This may be taken to mean that Russia once more renews h r proposal for a Conference, and the same tel ram, a St. Petersburg one, which makes the announcement, adds tl?:,t the French Ambassador in that city has expressed the readiness of his Government to adhere to what Russia suggests. (It is worthy of notice that Lord Palmerston, in the tiouse of Commons on Monday night, exhibited not a little anxiety to get this Italian question put out of the arena of discussion for the present. The above news from St. Petersburg was probably his justification.) Theiiews from Denmark is very threatening indeed. The Assembly of the States of Schleswig has decreed the impeach- ment of M. Wolfhagen, Minister in a former Cabinet for the Affairs of the Duchies. A series of other propositions of very grave political importance are under consideration in the Assembly, and will probably be adopted, unless a disso- lution of the States be proceeded to. But the Danish Government itself is in fall dissolution, and continues to hold office merely because the King has hitherto been unable to find successors for his late advisers, whose tenure of office was one of the shortest on record at Copenhagen. } The Spanish Bag still floats over the fortress of Tetuan, and the complete route and dispersion of the enemy's army in the battle, within sight of and ck ? to the town, has created the greatest consternation there. Marshal O'BonneU has made a reconnaissance along the road to Fez, as from Tetuan. General Prim had a reth p another direction. According to Population, far from showing any hostility, nave receiveu tue troops in a friendly manner. Having taken Tetuan, the Spaniards now seem to have their eye upon Tangiers, for we lea-n by telegraph that the Spanish Government will listen to no proposals of peace from Morocco until Tangiers has been assailed or given up. The news from America is, thp.t tlie new Republican can- didate for the Speakership of the Congress of the United States only wants one vote of being legally elected. This candidate is Mr. Pennington. There is also a story about the British Minister at Mexico having sent an ultimatum to the Mexican Government regarding British claims. l
