FRANCE AND ITALY. [The following appeared in our second edition last week.1 In the sitting of the French National Assembly on V\ ed- nesday, M. Odilon Barrot, the Prime Minister, ascended the ,tribune and reud the following important dispatclilis:- Nice, March 27. The Consul of France to the Minister of Foreign Af- fairs r- CHARLES ALBERT, after having abdicated in favour of the Duke of SAVOY, passed through Nice on the 26th, at eleven in the morning, on his way to France. The Piedmonteso army has been beaten at Novarra, but its honour is safe." H Turin, March 2/1. "the Minister of France to the Minister of Foreign Affairs:- •' The army has been forced back to the mountains of ] Vie la and Borg-o Manero. The Austrians occupy Novarra, VstLclii, and Trino. The Kum has abdicated and fled. The IKike of SAVOY has not yet written to Turin. The Government has requested Mr. Abercrombie and me to apply for an armistice to cover Turin. We have placed ourselves at its disposal. TLitin is tranquil, and everything is disposed to remain." Having read the dispatches, M. Odilon Barrot addressed the Assembly, and said that he felt it to be his duty at once to declare that the French Government was determined to preserve the integrity of Piedmont. It appears that Austria did not trust to arms alone to se- cure her success against Charles Albert-golcl also was em- ployed, and his own officers were bribed to betray him. The debate on Italy was continued on Saturday evening, and finaliy the Assembly adopted the order of the day pro- posed by M. Bixio, with some modifications, by a majority of 444 to 320. This vote had the concurrence of the Govern- ment, to which it gives the utmost latitude and freedom of ketioli on the Italian question. This vote is a. virtual declara- tion on the part of the Assembly to maintain the general peace, and to attempt no armed intervention in Italy which mi¡;ht endanger the tranquillity of the Peninsula.
