SICILY. The Chamber had been discussing the choice of a King for several days without coming to any decision. Wearied of this delay, the National Guard surrounded the Chamber on Monday (July 10), declaring that until a decision was come to no Qne should be permitted to leave. About mid- night of Monday the bells announced that a decision had been come to, and it was known that the Duke of Genoa had been elected King. On Tuesday morning there was a continual firing from all the forts. The Bulldog (English) was the Ifirst foreign vessel to hoist the Sicilian flag, and salute it with 21 guns. The French followed soon after. The following is the proclamation of the Sicilian Parlia- ment, announcing their choice of a King:— Sicilians,—Our vows are accomplished—our Constitu- tion avenged—an abominated dynasty expelled—and a King elected by the unanimous voice of the people. The warrior of Peschiera and of Goito, the son and companion of the Prince faithful to the eause of Italy, the Duke of Genoa, Al- berto Amedeo, shall be the constitutional King of the Sici- lians. In the vigour of life, a tried friend of the people and of proved valour, he. is a King worthy of a nation of war- riors; and a lover of well regulated but not in the least li- centious liberty."
