ITALY The DiscAissione of Turin, Oct. 2, savs # "The King's daughters, before quitting their country, implored pardon and favour for the persons guilty of participation in the late events..< "The day on which their prayer will be heard is near. On Sunday a royal decree will proclaim an amnesty for Garibaldi and his followers, from which, however the deserters from the royal army will be excluded." The rumours of a ministerial crisis are no longer cur- rent. rp, „ TURIN, OCT. 5. ihe Komans, having raised a subscription of 20,000- francs, have presented a rich wedding gift to the Queen of Portugal. This morning the King signed a decree granting am amnesty to all persons concerned in the acts and attempts which took place lately in the.Southern provinces, with the exception of those who deserted from the royal army. J EhsDiritto, of Turin, October 7, publishes a telegram from Naples, announcing that Deputies Mordini, Fabriz;T and Calvino have been set at liberty The Discussione states that the visit of Prince Napo- leon to Naples has been undertaken with the object of, inquiring into the political condition of the country, and of reporting it to the Emperor. The same paper says that the institution of a great military command in Sicily was intended immediately to precede the raising of the state of siege, but that this measure has been postponed on account of the recent outrages. The disarmament of Palermo is being promptly carried out. j The number of those excepted from the amnesty does not exceed 100-two of whom are commissioned officers, ana, ten non-commissioned officers. The Decree of Amnesty. The Official Gazette of Turin, Oct. 6, publishes the Royal Decree of Amnesty, countersigned bv Signor Rattazzi. The decree is preceded by a report of the Minister to the King. The Minister in this report says:— r motives which had compelled your Majesty to withstand the generous intentions of your heart no longer exist. The rule of the law is again con- solidated. Confidence in your frank but at the same time prudent policy has moderated the impa- tience which had pushed Garibaldi on the path of rebellion. By the catastrophe of Aspromonte we could perceive that if, while fighting in your name, he would still achieve prodigious results, this could not con- tinue to be the case when, having forgotten his duty, he took up arms against your rights, whatever might have been his ultimate intentions. At present Italy is reassured; recalls the services rendered by Garibaldi, and wishes to forget his errors. This desire of the country is echoed by all the friends of the liberty and unity of Italy. "When it was necessary to combat rebellion, the Go- vernment proposed the most energetic measures. But all danger has now ceased. The ministry therefore be- comes the interpreter of these generous wishes, and aaks clemency of your Majesty. We should have wished to extend this amnesty to all who have participated in the insurrection, but the necessity of upholding the senti- ment of military duty in the army prevents us from in- cluding soldiers who have deserted amongst those to whom pardon is granted. The honour of our flag forbids our taking ex- tenuating circumstances into consideration in their favour."
