ITALY. RE-COMMENCEMENT OF HOSTILITIES. The following is the position of the armies by the latest accounts:—Four divisions of the Piedmontese" army had passed the Tieino at Novarra, 011 the evening of the 20th. On the 21st, a body of Austrian troops passed the Tieino at Yigevano, and after a slight resistance, having received re- inforcements. pushed forward to Mortara. It thus got close to the division commanded by the King. It is thought prohabls that the Piedmontese troops have recrossed the Tieino, and that the battle will be fought in the plains of Verceiii. The French expedition is said to be ready to sail the moment the Austrians shall set their foot 011 the Ponti- fical territory. It consists of 12,000 men. The latest accounts from Turin state that an Austrian corps crossed the Tieino at Vigevano on the 21st, where it experienced some resistance, but having received reinforce- ments, the Austrian General moved forward to Mortara. It was supposed that Charles Albert would in consequence recross the Tieino, and that a battle would be fought in the plains of Verceiii. A bulletin had been published at Turin by the Minister of the Interior, announcing the passage of, ife Tieino and the march of the Piedmolltcsc army into Lombardy. The head-quarters of the King were at Trccate, a small town on the Piedmontese bank of the Tieino, close to the, road lead- ing from Novarra to Milan. It was by the bridge upon this n road, leading to Buffaloru, that the army crossed the river. When the division approached the bridge, the King himself e5 advanced suddenly to its head, and was the first man to cross. The passage was unopposed, the Austrians having retired from that point. The road to Milan was reported to have been crowded with the Austrians and their baggage and munitions in full retreat. Advices had been received from Voghera of an attack made by the Austrians upon the Piedmontese, who defended the bridge of Mezzana-Corte, near Pavia. The Austrians were repulsed, afier which the Piedmontese partially de- stroyed the bridge. This news was received by telegraph n n from Alexandria on the 21st. The Jli/'ai Gazette publishes two proclamations of Ha-, dctzki, dated the 17th, one addressed to the inhabitants ot Milan, the other to those of the Lombardo-Venetian king- dom at large. In the former, lvadetzki informs the Milanese that he leaves the city to carry the war upon the enemy's territory; but to the inhabitants, he in- forms them that lie leaves a sufficient garrison and a well provided citadel. He hopes that Milan will remain quiet, a second army being ready to fight for the rights of his So- vereign. They have, lie says, already felt the consequences of rebellion, but let them beware of a second attempt; the punishment would not fail to follow speedily and unrelent- ingly for lie is strong enough to crush every internal cnem^, and to fight the external one.' The second proclamation is nearly of the same tenor. General Haynuu has burnt the small town of Lorco, at the mouth of the Adige, containing about 3,500 inhahitan ts, on pretence of their having aided deserters to reach Venice in their boats.
