"FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. The question of annexation still occupies a promi- nent place in the discussion of continental politics. Two phases of this question are presented to the reader of the news from abroad—the annexation of Central Italy to Piedmont, and the Annexation of Savoy and Nice to France. M. Thouvenel, in discussing this question officially, on behalf of the Emperor of the hYench, maintains that the annexation of Central Italy to Piedmont is a European question, while the annexation of Savoy and Nice to France is a question which concerns France only. In other words, that Europe has no right to interfere with any little ar- rangement he, the Emperor, may make with regard to the acquisition of territory. With regard to the annexation of Savoy to France, everything shows that the Emperor of the French is determined upon it. Meanwhile, however, the Savoy- ards themselves are to have a voice in the matter. The Governor of Annecy, m bavoy, has issued a pro- clamation in which he calls upon his countrymen to exercise their choice in a manner befitting their nation- ality. The French papers maintain that the Savoy- ards desire. annexation to France, but more reliable telegrams from other sources indicate the desire of the Savoyards to remain under the rule of Victor Em- manuel. In Central Italy the popular desire for ii annexation to Piedmont is unmistakeable, as has been manifested by the voting which has taken place. Piedmont, it is said, entertains very hostile feelings towards Austria, and not unnaturally, considering the conflicting claims of Austria and Piedmont, with re- gard to Central Italy. It is even anticipated that war may «nsue. Military preparations are being actively pushed forward in Piedmont, ine Moors are making desperate efforts to resist the Spaniards. Tangiers is to be fortified as far as possible, and the women sent. away. War to the knife is therefore what must be looked for, aa the Spaniards are determined on aggression.
