THE ITALIAN CRISIS AND THE FRENCH PRESS. The documents relative to Rome published in the French official journal are again remarked on at consider- able length by the Paris papers, but not so much for the purpose of the various organs of public opinion, adding something to strengthen their first appreciations as to sneer, each at the language of its neighbour. We do not consider those personal disputes of much importance to our readers, and we therefore refrain from giving extracts. The following observations of the Gazette de France, however, touch on a point which has attracted general notice. It says:- "The Paris press presents a singular spectacle; the journals which defend the most contrary solutions are completely in accord in congratulating themselves on the letter of the Emperor and on the dispatches of M. Thou- venel and the Marquis de Lavalette. The Presse sees clearly in the words of the Emperor the assurance that the Papacy will be overthrown and Piedmontism consoli- dated the France unhesitatingly reads in them the triumph and independence of the Head of the Church, and an engagement to conserve to the Holy See its ter- ritorial. sovereignty; the Constitutionnel keeps within the obscurity of compliments; the Patrie, which shows more boldness, asserts with the Presse, that a solution favourable to radicalism must soon follow the publication of these documents; and the Siccle. without yet clearly declaring itself, insists on the refusal of the Court of Rome, thrown so particularly in relief by the diplomatic dispatches; and after having connected the letter to Edgar Ney with that to Mr. Thouvenel, concludes for the overthrow of the Holy See. In presence of such a situation, it may be asked if the communication of the Moniteur has caused a single step to be made in the Roman Question, and if the public is more enlightened now than it was two days ago." A Naples letter of the 20th, in the DSbats, says More than a hundred of the volunteers disbanded at Aspromonte have been taken by the military authorities of the Drovince of Reggio within the last fortnight, sent to Pizzo and Reggio, and there embarked yesterday for the fortress of La Spezzia. All traces of agita ion in the Neapolitan provinces have disappeared. The same result has taken place in Sicily, excepting that between Girgenti and CsJtanisetta, three or four hundred bandits were lately wandering about, some of whom had intro- duced themselves into the suite of Garibaldi. Columns of troops are maintaining an active pursuit, and the majority have been arrested. Two days back General Brignone reviewed 10,000 soldiers at Palfei^j, the popu- lation repeatedly cheering the troops. The journals of Palermo, of which the publication had been forbidden at the commencement of the state of siege, have been authorised to reappear. Naples is enjoying a pro- found calm; and, in consequence, thE nocturnal patrols of troops and the national guard which were made during the first days of the state of siege have been definitely suspended. There are no traces of Mazzinian or Bourbo- nian agitation, unless the clandestine publication of three numbers of Rome or Death! and the failure of an attempt to distribute a proclamation in favour of the restoration of Francis II. can be dignified with such titles. It is needless to add that those publications were seized immediately. Yesterday the festival of the miracle of St. Januarius was celebrated in the cathedral of Naples with the accustomed solemnity; .the liquefac- tion of the blood took place early in the morning to the great joy of the faithful. Notwithstanding the state of siege salvos of artillery were fired, and the usual rejoic- ings took place."
