PROPOSED CONFERENCE, VIENNA, MAI 29, Austria accepts the invitation to attend tha Paris Conference. FLORENCE, Mas 29. Italy accepts the invitation to the Con- ference. She cannot suspend her arm>imen!.s, out she engages to make no attack during the Conference, THE CONFERENCE. The Times of Tuesday observes: — Is ia the deepest regret we announce that the hop's of settling by a Conference the disputes which now agitate Europe must be abandoned. The FrenA Goveinmeat has telegraphed to our own that, in 0 .msequonce the persistence of Austria in imposing condit-one which would make the discussions. t igatory, the Conference will not be held. It woul'?, indeed, e* a mockery to call together the representatives of th& Great Powers on terms which would necessarily in- volve their immediate separation. We fear, th-ar, that matters stand as they stood thre weeke since, aDd that it now reats with the armed Powers to com- pose their disputes by negotiation between them- selves, or to resort to the final arbitrament of war. We can oaly hope that the former counsel will prevail, but everything must now be done by the Powere themselves, for the functions of the neutra: States are at an end. ITALY. FLORENCE, May 29.
