THE first news of battle has reached us from the Continent, and, although great in itself, comes but as the prelude to the narratives of carnage we have yet to learn. On Sunday last, while, in our quiet churches and peaceful homes, we were pursuing the usual and happy routine of an English Sabbath, the flame of war burst forth in its fury abroad, and through- out the day the picked forces of Italy and Aus- tria were pitted against each other in desperate strife. The combat, so far as the immediate result is concerned, was decisive against the former Power, King Victor Emmanuel being- compelled to withdraw his army with an enor- mous'loss. With characteristic bravery and temerity, he and his commanders had led their troops at once against that stronghold of Austria in the Venetian plains, the Quadrilateral. They had chosen for their assault a position between Verona and Peschira, hoping thus to establish Z, themselves for future operations against either or all the fortresses. But the Austrians were prepared for the attack, and threw out their army to meet that of the "warrior king." The Italian army, it appears, consisted of three corps, the first of which-first in name as well i as in action—bore the brunt of the battle. So r as we can yet learn, this corps, detached in SOl ne measure from the main body, had ad- van ced within the enemy's lines, and had oc- eupit the town or village of Custozza. Mak- ing tl -is what is technically known as a point d'apjpu h it was still advancing on, when it was fallenù 'pon by the chief portion of the Austrian army, m ider the Archduke Albrecht. A- gen- eral enga, gement of course ensued, and the re- sult of tl 1e partial separation of the Italian corps appe, 1rs to have been disastrous. We quote the v, -ords of the account from the Italian head-quartei 's, in which it is said that the second and tl tÍrd army corps were unable to de- liver the first i from the assault it had to sustain against an ovei 'whelming force." It goes on to say that th e two latter corps are almost intact." What became of the first is ominous- ly left to conjiectx Ire. The Austrian <. account is moderate in its terms, and were it i lot that we have both the Italian despatches, ai 1d later news before us, we might hesitate to b elieve, from that account alone, that the victory was so decisive as it proves to have been. -The Imperial troops," we are told, repulsed- thv3 enemy at all points, after a hot fight, and nc't without considerable loss. The candour oflbe latter avowal is somewhat an exception to general tone of military dispatches issued un der similar circum- stances. But its moderation is tjhat of success for the result of the battle was to eaLlse Victor Emmanuel almost immediately to withdraw his forces behind the Mincio, wh ich separates the Italian from the Austrian dom. inions.. Only a portion of the Italian arm y was' en- gaged under the command of the ki.ig, fox a considerable body had been detacheci under General Cialclini, to effect the passage of the j Po while his Majesty established himself from j the side of the Mincio. The intended com- bination was defeated by the issue of Sunday s fight, and Cialdini appears to have learnt t he result in time to induce him to refrain fr om attempting to cross the river. As the trians were known to possess in Venetia force at least as strong as any the Italians could bring in the field, it is certainly surpri- sing that the Italian commanders should in the first instance have thus divided their army, and in the next have still further seperated their corps for the attack. The whole pro- ceeding, so far as can be judged from the pre- sent information, was characterised by rash- ness and imprudence, and gave every possible opportunity for a serious reverse. This victory of the Austrians will doubtless have a considerable moral effect, and animate the army throughout the empire with addition- al spirit and courage. Regarded in this light, it possesses a far greater value than it would have simply as the repulse of an enemy from the soil. It was a favourite dictum of the great Napoleon that in war moral force is to physical as three to one, and according to this standard the Austrians have gained the equi- valent of a large accession of troops, while the Italians have lost in proportion. We learn from Florence, however, that the people have received the intelligence with calmness, al- though with deep disappointment, and that there is no falling off in the resolution to achieve the conquest of Venetia at any cost. The at- tack will doubtless be recommenced as soon as Victor Emmanuel can reorganised is broken forces. The small force of volunteers under Garibaldi appears to be harassing the flank of the enemy in the direction of the Tyrolese Alps, and has exchanged shots with some advantage. But it will probably gain little in the absence of any success on the part of the main Italian army, and will be useful chiefly as a corps of obser- and will be useful chiefly as a corps of obser- vation, and for occasional annoyance to the Austrians. Venetia is not the ground for the display of any of those astonishing feats which have made the name of Garibaldi renowned for all time; and where Victor Emmanuel with his army has thrown himself in vain, we can- not expect to learn that Italy's noblest hero with his puny force can do anything of moment. We now await with impatience the first news of conflict on the other side of the Aus- trian empire, which may possibly be in the reader's hands ere these lines go to press. It is there that Austria has most to fear, for that is its vulnerable side, and the enemy appears for- midable equally in strength, dexterity, and rapidity of movement. The advantages Prus- sia has already gained by its prompt advance into Boheiiiia. and the minor German States it will be hard to wrest away, and will perhaps more than counterbalance the recent Austrian success. All sorts of rumours are afloat as to the consti- ution of the new Government, but speculation is at the present unsafe. The Standard says that the Earl of Derby proceeded to Windsor yesterday afternoon, in obedience to her Majesty's commands. The noble earl, says the Tory organ, has received assurances of general support from many gentle- men not hitherto numbered among his adherents, and there will be few difficulties in the way of the formation of a strong Ministry. The Pall Mall Gazette says the Queen has communicated to Lord Derby her commands to form a new Administra- tion but, with great consideration, does not formally summon, him to Windsor till today, in order that he may have more time to complete the out- line of the arrangements he may submit to her Majesty. The same paper also adds that Lord Stanley will certainly occupy a prominent position in the new Ministry and thinks it not unlikely that Lord Derby may seek the co-operation of Lord Lansdowne, as leader of that formidable Whig section which was opposed to the action of the late Government. The Globe advises its readers to re- ceive with all reserve the rumours which are afloat in connection with the formation of the new Min- istry. Beyond the fact that Lord Derby was in communication with her Majesty yesterday nothing had occurred to warrant the statements put forward by certain contemporaries. Meetings were held on Tuesday night in various provincial towns on the subject of Reform. Enthusiasm everywhere prevailed, and the opinions expressed in the resolutions adopted were adverse to the retirement of the Ministry and favourable to a dissolution of Parliament. Just before some of the meetings separated, the fact of her Majesty having accepted the resignation of the Ministry was made known, and created great dissatisfaction. At Colchester the Conservatives called a meetino', but the Liberals swamped them, and passed reso- lutions of confidence in Lord Russell and Mr. Gladstone, and against Lord Derby. 11 On Tuesday last both Houses of the Convoca- tion of the Province of Canterbury assembled at Westminster for the despatch of business, and an exciting session is anticipated. During the last few months the question of ritualism in the Church, particularly in connection with the vestments used by certain of the clergy during the administration of the Holy Communion, the use of incense at various parts of the service, and other observances have excited so much attention that the leaders of both parties have sent up monster deputations to the Primate on the subject, praying, ou the one hand, that the liberty of the Church may not be restrained, and on the other that what are called Romanising practices may be put down by author- ity. Meetings with the same view have been' held in the various rural deaneries throughout the pro- vinces, the result of which was that yesterday Convocation was deluged with petitions, some praying for one course and others for exactly the opposite, both sides pointing out that a disruption of the Church must inevitably take place unless their peculiar views are carried out. A lady in Manchester, who appears to be a per- son of strong religious views, has devoted herself to the reconciliation of stage plays with the Evan- gelical form of Christianity. She has published a pamphlet entitled The Stage and Christianity Reconciled," and now writes a letter to a Manches- ter paper, in which she says, I have induced a very emment Independent minister in this town to visit the theatre, and he pronounced it an innocent and harmless entertainment, with a decidedly elevating tendency. Twelve months ago this man was con- demning the stage from the pulpit."

A shoe king case of murder and suicide is reported from Cam 'bridgeshire. On Tuesday the wife of a man name, i Dodgson, a harness maker and small farmer in tl. ^e village of >Swa\ esey, near St. Ives, handed herse df and her youngest child (about four years old) in a cowshed at the back of the house. The act is attributed to mental derangement caused by the loss heA husband had sustained by the cattle plague. A man named Philippe is now on trial in Paris for having committed four deliberate murders, although how many more he has perpetrated none can know but himself. In one case he killed a mother and infant, mutilating them in a fearful manner. It was only three days after killing a woman that he attempted another assassination, and was apprehended, rl'he wretch does not deny having killed two women. Surely no extenu- ating circumstances will be found in the case. 11 A NEW PHASE OF THE STRIKE QUESTION.—At the Liverpool Police-court, on Tues'day, two men named Softy and Meadows were charged with setting fire to the stables of their employer, Mr. Lane, a brewer, with whom they had had a dispute about wages. The prisoners were remanded.
BRECON, COUNTY COURT. This "court was held on Friday, June 22nd, before Judge Falconer. There was about 80 plaints en- tered for trial, but were devoid of public interest with the exception of the following:- GRIFFITHS & SON, timber merchants, v. THOMAS FARR.—This was an action brought to recover a disputed difference in a charge for hauling a quan- tity of timber from a wood. Mr. Gaines was for the plaintiff, and Mr. Bonnel Bishop for the defendant. Mr. Games was about to state the nature of the case, when Mr. Bishop applied to be allowed to pay the sum of £ 7 12s. into court, the defendant contending that that was the amount due by agreement, while the plaintiff's plea was that the work had been agreed for by day work. The amount having been paid into court, Mr. Games stated the case, and called Mr. J. Griffiths, who stated that he was a timber merchant, residing at Brecon on the 14th March last, the defendant employed his teams to haul some timber for him. (Complainant here enume- rated the number of days employed; but his Ho- nour did not think that he need do that-onlv refer to the dispute in the contract.) Examination continued—He hauled a quantity of the timber and received a sum of £ 14 odd, and when this work was nearly completed his (plaintiff's) men told him that defendant said when the job was done he had another job for them, and having told them where it was one of them went from, where they were then hauling over the hill to see the place; in a few days afterwards the men told him that Farr was not to have this timber, and he told Farr of it, who said that it was all nonsense, as he had bought them; in a few days afterwards they had some more conversation on the matter, and Farr wanted him to haul them for the same price as the former timber; he refused, as the road was a bad one, and h" had had some losses on the for- mer occasion by the breaking of a timber carriage, &c.; Farr then desired him to haul them and charge him as reasonable as possible, which he had, his bill being £9 16s. Cross-examined—He did not tell me what he was willing to pay; he only said that he would pay according to the timber; he never offered me any sum of money; remembers being in company with him in the Cock and Horse Inn, when Mr. Probert and Davies, the guard, were present; Farr and me had words; he called me a rogue. (His Honour intimated that he could not allow this to transpire in the present examina- tion.) Cross-examination continued—I don't know whether he opened his hand when he offered to settle with me; will swear I did not see any mo- ney he said he would settle with me, and I desired him to come to the office round the corner if he wanted to settle; there is a sum of 4s. in the pre- sent bill which my clerk omitted in the former bill; have offered to settle with him many times. His Honour said it appeared to him that it all turned upon two questions—Was the work done by contract or by day work. Mr. Bishop- Yes, your honour; I intend show- ing you that it was done by the former, by calling the defendant. Defendant was then sworn, and stated that hav- ing purchased some pitwood at Penpont, he agreed with Mr. Griffiths as to the haulage; Mr. Griffiths asked him 8s. a cord for hauling; he thought it too much and offered him 7s. Gd., but they ulti- mately agreed to split the difference, and it was to be for one lot 7s. 6d., and 8s. the other, for 40 cords; this was to be the agreement for all the haulage; he paid him a bill of X 14, and a part of what he was now charged with was in that bill; as a proof that it waa not day work, Mr. Griffiths's father had spoken to him and asked him how he could have taken his son in in such a manner as to get him to haul the wood at 8s. a cord, and if he had been present he would have charged him more; witness told him that he had some more to haul and he would make it out another way; after the haulage was measured he had offered Mr. Griffiths the amount he had paid into court three times, but he had refused it. Cross-examined—He did not put the money on the table; the money was in his hand; his hand was not shut when he offered to settle; the first lot hauled, in the £ 14 bill, was from Penygavn; the second was from ythe Park and the Dingle; William Price hauled a quantity from the Park at the same terms as Griffiths refused; he made use of a bad expression towards Griffiths, but begged his pardon the next day; after this Griffiths fetched the other lot from Pengavn wood, and he had offered him what was a fair price for so doing; witness got one man to do it for 6s. per cord, but he failed to fulfil his contract; he consi- dered that Price had as much trouble in hauling his lot of timber as Griffiths had perhaps Griffiths went to more expense from Penygavn and the Dingle. He-examinecl-Griffiths offered to fetch some timber a mile and a half further for the same price as he did the others. David Edwards deposed that he lodged in the same house as the defendant; he remembered hear- ing a conversation between defendant and Griffiths while he was present; it was an agreement for plaintiff to haul timber for defendant at 7s. 6d. and 8s. a cord from Penygavn wood; Griffiths came to Farr about it. Cross-examined—He was formerly a clerk to Mr. Griffiths; he had talked the matter over with Farr lately; he only heard a i Penygavn mentioned; he did not hear the Park or the Dingle mentioned. Mrs. Parry deposed that the defendant lodged with her; she remembered plaintiff coming to her house to see Farr; she heard a conversation between them about the hauling of timber from the Peny- gavn wood and heard them agree for the price stated by the last witness. Cross-examined—She didn't know where Penygavn wood was; she cer- tainly henrd the Park and the Dingle mentioned; Farr had not been speaking to her lately about the matter. (The Judge here said—Suppose you had; there is no harm in that. Witnesses seem to be afraid to admit having done so, thinking their evi- dence would be discredited. He would again say there was no harm in doing so, and he hoped wit- nesses would be impressed with this. Examination continued-That is all I have to say. William Austin deposed to having measured the timber in dispute, "which was 19 cords he did not inform Mr. Griffiths that he was going to do so; he heard Mr. Griffiths's father say to Farr that his son had hauled them too cheap at 8s. a cord, that he did not know the road; this conversation took place when the timber was being hauled. Henry Stevens proved having sold all the timber and never authorized any one to say that Farr was not to have it; in answer to his honour, he said that the timber in the three places was sold at the same time. Cross-examined—Penygavn is some little distance from the Park, and is a bad road; the Chapel Dingle is worse than that. W. Davies, guard, deposed that he was present at the Cock and Horse Inn when Griffiths and Farr were there; a dispute arose between them as to the settlement of an account; he saw Farr tender what he cansidered due to Griffiths; he had the money in his hand, openly; Griffiths must have seen it. Cross-examined—He didn't know how much the money was; he did not reckon it, but heard Farr say, Here is your money if you will take it." J. Probert, landlord of the Cock and Horse Inn, corroborated this, but heard Griffiths say, "I will not receive it unless I have the money in full;" Farr said that was not his agreement, holding at the time a bill in his hand. Cross-examined—He did not see any money with Farr; he did not de- posit it on the table or anything of the sort. By his Honour—Very bad language passed between them; he did not think Farr was tipsy; he had heard unpleasantness between them before. Mr. Games here addressed his honour at some length, and Mr. Bishop replied. His Honour having gone through the evidence, said that the evidence on the part of the plaintiff and defendant was of that nature that many reve- lations in so simple a matter may have been avoided. In snppsrt of the defendant's statement he had called witnesses to prove the offer of the amount on which the original agreement was made, as he considered, for the whole affair. The next point was, whether there was any separation in the price of the carrying at all after the payment of the £14. From the nature of the evidence he thought there was. The defendant should have kept better ac- counts.—He should give a verdict for the plaintiff for S7 16s., with costs.—Communicated.

MEBTHYR. THIS WAR ON THE CONTINENT AND THE TP,,A DF, OF SOUTH WALES.—The unfortunate conflict which at present disturbs the European continent is be- ginning to make its evil consequences felt in the mining and manufacturing districts of South Wales. Italy and Germany were amongst our best custom- ers, but the falling oil in orders from those places within the last week or two has been great, and will be sorely felt- Ip- most of the large iron works around us men are being discharged in squads, whilst only a month or so ago there was an appre- hension of a serious dearth of labour. At some of the establishments usually considered active, we have reason to believe that there is not a single order of any account on the books, and the masters have already commenced stocking. How long this stagnation may continue it is impossible to say— probably for the period of the war and if, as there is only too great a likelihood of, the area of hostili- ties slioul(I be much extended, so as to embrace countries at present holding aloof from the strife, bad will only grow worse. All this ill-judged time it is aimost incredible, but it is a fact, the colliers of tne Rhondda Valley have met the masters with a stern front and given the month's notice for an advance. We hope before the four weeks have expired the men will see the folly of their conduct and make as much hay as they can while the sun shines, for the prospect before South Wales in the event of a long struggle in Germany is by no means a pleasant one.
