GEN. JOHN W . GE A RY ,
OF WESTMORELAND COUNTY.
A war in Europe seems inevitable, and
already the armies of the contending par
ties are taking position on the vulnerable
points on, or leading to, the disputed terri
The question with the American reader
is, " What is the direct, or immediate cause
of this war ?" And while it is quite visi
ble that territorial aggrandisement, or the
ambitious projects of the ruling sovereigns
of Europe, is alone the real eause of the
war, yet each side lias so befogged the
question with belabored arguments, that
most people as remote as we, are at a loss
to determine what Europe is going to war
for. We now sit down to illustrate this,
and we do not know that we shall be suc
It will be remembered, that a few years
ago Prussia and Austria had a private
quarrel about the sovereignty of the Dutcli
ies of Schleswig and Ilolsteiu, the south
ern, and a very material portion of the ter
ritory of Denmark. These Duchies give
the holder, or ruling sovereign, a vote in
the great German Diet, and this, beside be
ing no inconsiderable provinces in them
selves,gives importance to their possession.
For the political affairs of the German
states being under the control of the Diet,
a vote there is often a question of great
magnitude. In the European wars against
Napoleon Bonaparte, Denmark was forced
to unite her fortunes with the latter, and
then wheu he was conquered, the Allied
Powers had 110 mercy on poor, weak Den
mark, and her territory was cut up to suit i
Prussia and Austria, and hence it came
that Schleswig and Holstein, pari of Den
mark, is he'd in sovereignty by these two
powers ; but by the inter-marriages and '
deaths of the reigning Dukes, the respec
tive titles pf the sovereigns became com
plicated, and the quarrel of a few years
ago, alluded to above, ensued.
Now, this private quarrel between Aus
tria and Prussia, has set all the monarchs
of Europe at loggerheads, and this lias
came about in this wise :
Prussia, fearing that she would be un
able to fight Austria alone successfully,
hatches up a project to secure the assist
ance of France and Italy, based on the
principle of territorial compensation. The
terms ol the treaties said to exist between
these three Powers, treaties which have not
yet been openly avowed, are supposed to
include the acquisition of Venetia by Italy
of the left bank of the Rhine by France,
and the absolute and sole possession by
Prussia of the Duchies wrested from Den
mark. This division would satisfy the ter
ritorial ambition of each of the allies. The
possession of Venetia would complete the
unification of Italy, and would at tbe same
time relieve that country from the threat
. ening fortresses of the Quadrilateral The
possession of the left bank of the Rhine
would give France the " natural boundary
line," of which the present Emperor has
been so long covetous. As for Prussia, the
possession of the Duchies would give her
a free outlet to the sea, and enable her to
gratify her long cherished ambition to be
come a first-class naval power. But, on
the other hand, this arrangement would
make an isolated inland power of Austria,
unless she were able to retain the non-Aus
trian provinces 011 the Adriatic, and at the
same time, would threaten England with a
new and powerful rival for the supremacy
. of the seas.
l Austria, on the other hand, seeks to de
- fend herself from these despoiling purposes
by counter strategy. She invites Russia,
- the Great Northern Bear, whose Cossacks
all Europe dread, into the fight, by prom
ising her the Danubiau Provinces belong
ing to Turkey, which this great power has
1 so long coveted, and nothing loath to fight
for the tempting bait, Russia bristles up,
and sends an hundred thousand men to the
boaders of Austria. Thus arranged, the
combatants are about equal, and the con
test promises to be one of great magnitude
and fierceness. Indeed, this very fact, has
compelled hesitation. The vastness of the
fight as thus arranged, the ruin that it must
entail, and the absence of a sufficiently
justifying eause, may yet sober and ration
alize those controlling the interests of Eu
So soon as the existence of these alli
ances were suspected, the whole moral in
fluence of England was exerted to bring
about a pacific adjustment of the questions
at issue, and as it was not the policy of
France to make war if she could obtain
her object by peaceful means, she joined
with England in the effort to have the mat
ter brought before a General Conference of
the Great Powers. Russia, having no par
ticular interest, either way, in the quarrel
between Austria and Prussia, joined with
England and France in sending letters to
the Courts of Vienna, Berlin, and Florence,
and to the German Diet at Frankfort-on
the-Maine, inviting them to send represen
tatives to a Conference to be held at Paris.
The latest European advises indicate the
entire failure of this conference. It did
not even meet.
Whilst this is the general position of the
head men of Europe, who control her poli
tics, it is interesting to know what the peo
ple of the different countries involved in
the strife, have to say on the question.
In Prussia the people are opposed to a
war, on the very grounds that lead the
King and his Ministers to desire war.—
Count Bismark's ambition is intensely
Prussian. He wants to elevate Prussia
to place her by the side of England and
France, on sea as well as on land ; and to
satisfy this ambition, he is ready to sacri
tier eve ry other German kingdom, and < x
tiuguish forever the long-desired German
idea of a great national confederation, wilts
a natioi al flag, a national capital, a nation
al army and navy. Hence his plans for tin •
aggrandizement of Prussia meet with no
sympathy even from Prussians, while they
are heartily detested in every other part ol
Germany. The into sity of this foi ling is
apparent from the b> : ! • ving quotation :
We shall never be in repose as long as Austria
and Prussia are equal in force. The interest of
Germany, therefore, demands imperiously the des
truction of one of these two great Powers. Then
comes the question which of tbe two shout ! be
sacrificed. Austria is a political uecesxity I .
Germany and for Europe, while the existence of j
Prussia has no other motive than the dynastic in
terests of the family of Hohenzolhwn. T. " i !
rope, at present, it is a matter of utter intiiUV .
euce whether Prussia should be replaced or not i-\ ,
three or four States of Secondary rank, its the po
litical equilibrium would in nowise be disturbed.
If Prussia should disappear from the mup of Eu
rope, not the least hiatus would be perceived, nor
the smallest interest be injuriously effected. When
therefore, the question arises as to which of the |
two great German Powers should be effaced from 1
tbe map of Europe, the interest of Germany in
coutestibly indicates Prussia, and demands lici
If we look into Italy, we shall be at once j
struck with tbe different spirit thatani-j
mates the people. From one end of the j
kingdom to the other, all is enthusiasm and .
eagerness. Volunteers Hock by thousands
to the army, and contributions of money .
flow in one incessant stream into the lia
tional treasury. It is the general opinion
in Europe that Italy will make a light lot
Venetia, even if she must fight alone. Says
M. Entile de Girardiu, in La Liberie :
Italy has yone too fur —she must fight. This is not
the moment to make critical observations, more or '
less just, on the manner in which the negotiations
liavo been conducted by Gen. La Marmora. The
General must be sustained, but on condition that i
he goes through the affair rapidly. The moral
feeling of the country would be destroyed by furth
jer delay. If King Victor Emanuel "does not fire I
the cannon, the revolution will lake his place, utulbe- j
jin the struggle. The temperament ol Italy can no j
longer sustain the over-excitement which has be- |
come the normal state of the populations. The
matter must come to an end, and the people must !

I CY, of Braford. EDGAR COWAN of Westmore

The meeting was strictly an otfice-hol

jan anxious seeker after "something." A

i but anything handsome will do. We sub
| mit that he has earned it from this faithless
I Administration, if recreancy to principle
' and subserviency are ever to be rewarded.
The August Convention to which Mr.

1 Johnson men as COWAN, and is endorsed in
full by the Copperheads. It is intended to

THF. FIRST BATTLE OF THF. EUROPEAN' WAR
} —The Saxonia brings intelligence of t
great battle between the Italian and Aus
I trian armies, in which the former sufferer
a decisive and disastrous repulse, losing
| several cannon, about two thousand pris
i oners, and being finally compelled to with
! draw across the Miucio to the positions
| th."3* occupied two da} T s before.
The details of the battle are given with
great clearness in the brief official dispatch
es from the headquarters of the Italian and
Austrian armies. It appears from thesi
I dispatches that the Italians, under tin:
1 immediate command of their King, crossed
: the Mincio, near Goito, 011 the morning ol
June 23, and drove in the Austrian out-
I posts. On the morning of the 24th the
: First Corps of the Italian army attacked
j the Austrian positions near Peschiera with
i great spirit, but was overwhelmed by a
superior force and compelled to retreat be
fore the Second and Third Corps could
coine to its assistance. The Italians oc
cupied a strong position at Custozza,which
I was taken by assault, the Italians losing
! heavily. Fnding themselves outnumbered,
! the Italians recrossed the Mincio on the
25th, unpursued by the Austrians.
As the result of this defeat, it was pre
sumed that Gen. CIALDINI would postpone
his intended advance movement across the
Po, as his 60,000 men would have to en
counter 200,000 Austrians flushed with
victory. \ ICTOR EMMANUEL probabty moved
too soon, and without sufficient caution.
This defeat created no discouragement in
Italy, nor gave any check to the warlike
enthusiasm of the people.
