PAnts, Tuesday, Sept. 2.lth, 1867.—1 have not

reverting to the visit of the Emperor Napoleon
to Salzburg, and 'the consequences which have
flowed from that . ill-advised manifestation of,

Aiptria.l„,l;itaVe„lndeed r rather•
.Waited until' the denouement of that last little Na
poleonic drama was complete, and until one
could appreciate fully the situation in which it
has left the several parties at its close. I
apprehend there are few persons now who
can entertain much doubt as to whose
advantage that ill-judg.ed step has most tended to
promote. If any man were inclined before to hesi
tate in forming a judgment on the subject, the
recent circular of Count Bismarck must have
materially assisted him, I think, in making up
his mind. The last act, indeed, of that subtle,
daring and audacious statesman may be said to
close the series of rebuffs and misadVentures
which Napoleon has once more brought upon
himself and the French nation, and to permit
Europe also to feel some degree of confidence_
that, for the present at least, public tranquillity
will not be interrupted. But let us just
for a moment trace the results of Napoleon's in
terviews .with his friend Francis Joseph, and see
what advantage he has reaped from hia Austrian
poliey and where it leaves him. The matter can
baldly be otherwise than interesting to American
readers, because it is only a corollary to that ill
fatcd Mexican expedition from which so many
evils have sprung and which has been so severely
punished. For had. that never taken place, Maxi
milian would never have 'been the protege of
France, would never have fallen a victim to
bit own ambition and that of his patron; nor
the latter have ever been led, in order
to show his sympathy and regret, to take a step
which has redounded once more to his own mor
tificatn and unpopnlarity,and the advantage of
his adversaries. Napoleon had scarcely quitted
Salzburg before he was made aware of the mis
take he had committed and the tempest of emo
tion he had raised,' And first, in France the
aiarm was so great, especially among financial
and commercial classes, that • Napoleon has been
ever since employed in controverting his own.
act by his own words. He has been obliged to
make peace-speeches at Arras and Lille, to dic
tate peace-cireulars to his foreign Minister, M.
. Moustier, to send .down his Min
ister of State, M. Rouher, post
haste to Nantes, to protest that the Emperor
meant nothing but "peace, and durable peace,"
however much hia action might seem to militate
against such a conclusion. But _was it' worth
while, people ask, to throw all the great interests
of the country into confusion, and be thus com
pelled to make apologies and explanations on
all tides, in order to indulge feellugs of sym
pathy, and to take a step which was certain to be
misinterpreted, to be imputed to political
motives, and to give rise to every kind of con
jecture? People here shrug their shoulders im
patiently, and say if the visit to Salsburg was
really one of mere "sympathy," as asserted,
it was an act of egregious weakness and
short-sightedness ; but if it really contemplated a
coalition with broken-down Austria against all
Germany: then it was an act of downright mad
ness. So much for the feeling in France. In Ger
many matters are still worse. It is only necessary
to thke up a German paper, or to read the Grand
Duke of Baden's opening speech to his Parlia
ment, or, still more, the debates of the Parliament
itself, to estimate the lull effect on the German
mind of Napoleon's unwise proceedings. What
ever lingering reluctance might yet remain to
throw in their fortunes wholly and unres..rvedly
t. ith Prussia has vanished at once
before the threat, or even the sem
blance of a threat, of foreign in
tervention. Americans will well understand,
from their own recent experience, the force of
such a feeling. Nothing can be stronger than
the language of the Baden deputies: "The
Prussian flag," says M. Kirsner, "is viewed
with jealousy and disfavor across the
Rhine, and that is a proof that it is
our duty to serve, under it if we are true
friends of German greatness." "Duty and honor,"
says M. Beck. "demand the union of North and
South; it is puerile to dream of a Southern Con
federation, and only traitors would dare to pfo
pose an alliance with foreigners." One could
almost fancy one was listening to the debates of
Congress—so exactly do German ideas 'and
very words correspond with American. It is the
same all over 'Germany, and this is ono of the most
striking fruits ofthe Salzburg folly. Count Bis
marck was not the man to let such a slip, or mis
take, or false manreuvre of a political adversary,
escape hint, or to fall to take advantage of it.
Skillfully "availing himself of the feeling which
has been roused in Germany, with mingled sar
casm and sagacity, he comes down upon the Em
peror Napoleon and upon France with the now
famous circular, in which he announces that
France and Austria have disavowed all intention
of interfering with the Internal arrangements of
Germany;" thus tearing up and throwing in the
face of those powers the last shred oflthat Treaty
of Prague to which they have hitherto clung so
closely, and as good as announcing the union of
North and South to be an accomplished fact. Such'
is the real history and such the consequences of
the last Napoleonic blunder, be that blunder sen
timental and "sympathetic," as asserted, or po
litical and manmuvering, as is still shrewdly sus
pected. In either case the result has been the
same; nor can it be wondered at that the pres
tige of a ruler who so commits himself is rapidly
on the decline, both among his own subjects' and
other nations.
You have heard, of course, of the great inter
national safe controversy, ha which Silas C.
Herring came off so triumphantly, but has since
been so scurvily treated by his opponent Chat
wood and his English judges. A very clear and
impartial statement of the whole matter has been
published on the part of Mr. Herring, showing,
-first, that the terms of the wager were
that that party should be 'declared the
winner who succeeded first in extract
ing a marked piece of wood from
.adversary's safe; and, secondly, that the said
piece of wood Was f i rst extracted from Chat
wobd's safe by Herring's men. No .one who
read Herring's statentent •catt. doubt this, and
the correctness of it is confirmed by Mn Hoyle'
the English secretary of the committee. Now
this being the case, there,cannot, one would
think, be the least doubt t. at the wgger has be , h.
wr, I say that the "wa e has been won," be
cause that point, at least, 'has been clearly de
cided, for the wager was who should first take
out the piece of wood. That•pcople should still
dispute which is the best safe (when
both proved so good) is just
possible, and even think. that the trial may
not have decided the absolute superiority of one
over the other. But that the "wager" has
been fairly won and ought to be paid, seems to
admit of no doubt. And yet we are told that the
two English members of the Committee of Four
have resigned, and refuse to give a decision.
This certainly seems a most unfair proceeding.

yesterday, Mr. Herring protests against this mode
of shirking the question at Issue and demands au

The Imperial Commission of the Exhibition
keeps up its character for blundering and
vreediness to the last. A short time ago
it was advertising its season tickets at the "re
duced" price of 40f., when weekly tickets taken
to the end of the season would only cost :lilf. !
It has now reduced its tickets to 20f., which no
one, I feel sure, will pay. Again, the exhibition
building now closes at when it is dark; but the
Commission generously offers to let people Into
the Park "after G o'clock," when it isatill darker
and colder, "for 50 centimes." Of course uo one
goes, nor would they were it open gratis. The
razzia upon the chairs has done immense
jury. One ghat German lestablishment tells me
that its receipts, which were often eBOO per clay
before the chairs were taken.away, arc now not
a bove, tic(' or "ileo. Yet the Commission had
deliberately conceded to . this establishment thi;
same right of chairs which they afterwards sold
a ascend time to M. Bernard! The receipts of
the Exhibition arc said to amount to mil

to cover the estimated expenditure.
Manifesto of the Roman Junto.
ROME, Sept. 7, Ib67.—The establishment of
concord between the various factions of the Ro
man liberal party was generally desired, in order
that they might unitedly carry out the enterprise
of freeing Rome from the yoke of the priests and
accomplishing the unity of Italy. This wish
was, after great effort, fulfilled, and we, suc
ceeding the National Roman. Committee and
the Centre. of Insurrection, were accredited by
both those bodied to our fellow-citizens by
a manifesto addressed to the Romans on the 13th
of July list. We undertook our difficult chate,
trusting that Romans and Italians, without vio
lating, the September convention kid without de
priving Rome of the initiative of the insurrection,
would assist us by every means in their power.
In fact, what have our enemies been doing
for several years past? Legitimists tine

associations, the meetings improvised time and
there, the pirrish churches transit:reined into re

have joined all countries in a vast conspiracy
against civilization and against Italy, choosing
Rome as their battle-field. Can Rome alone, in
.I.le, miserable political and economical condition
to she has been reduced, struggle against
dl rite forces thus brought to bear upon 4er by
he religious and political fanaticism Iff the
world? Must she alone, after having from IglB to
this day prodigally contributed inn:beet, money
and men in all liberal movements and great
wars of the nation, must• she alone struggle
against the united strength of the cosmopolitan
reaction here assembled in conspiracy? The
Italian Government is bound, it is true, by the
September convention. in order to secure the
removal of the French flag from Pontifical
territory it has had to renounce all for
cible means of planting the Italian flag
on that territory. But will the Itallam; be
less clear-sighted respecting their true interests
than their enemies from every country who now
make head at Rome? Has 4tot Italy national
, associations, constituted with the sagacious ob
ject of assisting the great efforts of the nation,
outside the sphere of diplomatic responsibility ?
Has she not institutions and generous citizens.
who can and will extend the • necessary support
to those who labor for the fulfillment of the na
tional aspirations? To those associations, to
those institutions, to those citizens we now ad
dress ourselves.
Inte'licling to carry out as soon as possible a
Roman insurrection, without embarrassing the
Italian Government, without rashness and with
out previous fracas, we have in readiness 6. vast
organization. But, as every one knows, this or
uanization cannot be maintain without great ex
penditure, and the preparations 'for the day
of action are very costly, Our treasury,
that furnishes lall has received for
several. months past no other contri
butions than the offerings of this patriotic popula
tion, impoverished by long tyranny and a series
of noble sacrifices. We are in the breach await
ing your help. Ikeihis unexpectedly fall us, the
liberal party, now strongly organized, cannot but
remain in the power of the intriguers.
May such misfortune, such shame never fall
upon Rome and Italy!

GLNESTILELLE, Sept. 16.—1 b tncAut upialltoman Junta:
Your appeal tothe Italians will not be in vain. In Italy
there are many follows rs of Vincent de Paul, many
Jesuits—many who have sacrificed on the altar of the
belly—but it is also consolatory to say there are many
brave men of ban Martino—many heroic bersaglien
of the Be el./leaks—many soldiers of the first ar
tillery in the world—many descendants of the
three hundred Fabians and a remnant of the thou
sand of Monate, who,lf I am not mistaken, make up
hundred thousand young men who now fear to be too
manyterdhide the small glory of driving foreign iner
t:emu tea and priests out of Italy. Woth regard to the
means, Italy always had the misfortune to be rich enough
to niaintain foreign armies, and among her rich citizens
putt lots are not wanting who will, I am sure, assist 3 oil
with splendid offerings. Forward, then, Romans; break
yourchains upon the cowls of your oppressors, and the
Italians will share your glory. Yours,
Worreepondence of the N. Y. Tribanel.

the officer of thir 27th refused, and carried him off
just as he was, without a second shirt. A special
train awaited him at Sina Lunga; they popped
him in and carried him by way of liana, near to

A. M.—Again a hasty line, to tell you that I have
seen Garibaldi in his filthy den; that I am Sup
posed not to have seen him; that I am awaiting

Ho is, on the whole, very anzry: first, that as

he will get it. Henceforward he remains Italian,

were made in Florerice the night before.
The Cost of Following a French.B.o.
The Florence f.;f:ette believes it can state that
the extraordinary movement of troops required
by the menaces of an expedition against Rome
have so modified the figures of the War Budget,
that at the re-opening of the Chambers the Go

The Antibes Legion. ,
A letter from Bonn; asserts that all the officers
of the Antibes Lesion sent in their resignations
on the 21st. A telegram of the 24th contradietS
the report.
At Aspromonte, Garibaldi was vanquished; at
Asinalunga he was arrested without a combat.
For the second time the prudence of the Italian
government has avoided the gravest complica
tions in deciding to strike the soldier who gave
Sicily and Naples to the Kingdom of Italy
and Victor Emmanuel. The day after Aspro
monte it was asked fwith uneasiness what
effect would be prodneett throughout the
realm by that act of vigor; and the indifference
of the majority of the 'ltalian nation on learning
the defeat of its popular hero may be remem
bered. At present, the bold act of Asinalunga
scems as if it would create some difficulties for
M. Ratazzi, .as a despatch informs us that
public order has been disturbed at Florence.
Let us hope that the movement has been
without gravity, and that the Ministry
will remain master of the ground. After
having for the second time shown that he dared
to act in case of necessity, M. Rittazzi explains
what he has done in a fresh note. The tone of it
Is very suitable, and appears to us calculated to
produce an excellent eifect•upon all Italians who
can neither forget the former services of Gari

permit him to launch their country into the most
perilous adventures.
[Front L'Cnion, September 2til
What are they going to do with the leader of
action, and with its other members =- officers or
simple volunteers—who have been arrested?
Logic and justice would demand that they shofild
be tried and condemned as disturbers of the public

which the Government in -Florence seems

that Persano was au admiral and senator, and

for incapacity. Notwithstanding the arrest

Arrests continue to be made of persons impli

principals have evidently got clean off. A rumor
prevailed that they had sailed on the Hibernian
for Quebec, but the probabilities are greater that
they took passage in a steamer bound for a
United States port.
Two {persons, man and wife, have been com

the informers, the magistrate refusing to bind

who were confined in the Mountjoy prison, were

The bars of his cell window, at a height:of nearly
forty feet from the [ground, were cut with a file;
several were dislodged, along with one of the
stones in the masonry adjoining. The escape was
further accomplished by a small rope doubled,
and by the tying together of the sheets of the
convict's bed. The rope and file are supposed to
have been supplied from the outside, and a bar
with which ho worked from within was wrenched
from a stove in the jail, from which he must have
contrived to remove it by repeated efforts while
pass'ng from the pier : p*4-round to his cell. A
Government invettigation•has been held, and the
local board of superintendence have had a meet

The point of escape was within not more than
fifty yards of the police barrack.

Important Proposition••.A Strong At.
tempt to be Made by' Congress to *gar.
ntonize Matters with the President
on the Southern Question.
[Warldnaton Correapondeace N. Y. Harald.]
An important proposition has just been started
by influential Republicans which seems to meet
with considerable favor, and may have a con
trolling influence upon the action of Congress at
the appkpachb3g session and upon the nest
Presldentilti election. It is that a Congressional
Committee shall be appointed, by the consent of
all llenstOrs and Representatives who' concur in
the proposition, to wait upon President Johnson
and request him t state definitely what plan he
has to submit far stile speedy reconstruction and
admission of the southern lltates as he has hith
maul Policy.

erto opposed every policy that has lieen initiated
by Congress. They presnine• that he has a dell
site practiCal plan of reconstruction in his own
mind, which he believes would' be effective and
which would meet his approvalt They wouldtheti
ascertain to a certainty whether there is any pos
sibility of the legislative and excentive branches
of the government harmonizing on a policy that
would restore the ex-rebel States to representa
tion before the next Presidential election, or
whether the country must remain in its present
condition until those two branches shall be
brought into accord by the decision of the ballot
box in 1868. Attempts have before been made
to patch up a compromise between the President
and Congress, but they have been only Mffividual
volunteer efforts. The proposed movement con
templates the concurrence of a sufficient number
of Republicans to secure a majority of each
House should any agreement he possible, and the
application to the President will be formal and
authoritative. It originates with those who fear
that impeachment may bring a destructive finan
cial crisis upon the country, and said to meet
the approval of, Senator Morgan,*ofiliew York,
and other ropresentativee of Constituencies, par
tletilarly concerned in the financial prosperity of
the country. It would, moreover, form the nu
cleus of a new constitutional party all over the
General Shernitrn—New Cabinet.
ICorrenoondence of the BoAnn Pon, Oct. 6.1
General Sherman arrived here this morning, In
obedience to a telegram from President Johnson,
and speculation is rife as to the purpose of the
summons. General Grant declared to a member
of his staff to-day that he had no knowledge
whatever on the subject. Rumor says he will be
called to an official position in or near Washing
ton, as he is knoWn to be a firm friend of the
President. He is son-in-law of Mr. Thomas
Ewlug,of Ohio. who may be called to a seat in
the new Cabinet. Mr. Johnson is evidently
strengthening himself in view of the revolution
ary policy of the Radicals. General Sherthan
called on General Grant during the day, and is
spending the evening with President Johnson.
Among other speculations on the new Cabinet
it is reported on the street that Mr. Henry Hil
ton. of New York, will be appointed Secretary of
State; Thomas Ewing,Sccretary of the Treasury;
General Steedman, Secretary of War, Governor
English, of Connecticut, Secretary of the Navy;
General Frank P. Blair, Postmaster-General, and
Judge Black, Attorney-General. I am disposed
to believe that the larger portion of this rumor
will prove to be true.
“The Radical Plot for llevolution.”
[From tlic Wathington Intelligenccr, Oct. 7.1
The subject of the Maryland militia having now
been pretty well ventilated and discussed, we
should like to have some information about the
"splendid military organizations" to which. our
opponents from time to time refer. One of these,
termed the "Grand Army of the Republic," is a
secret and oath-bound military organization,
and numbers, as we hear, some two hundred
thousand members. We should be glad to have
some account of this force; how many are its
actual numbers, what are its designs, and
why, if its purposes be not revolutionary
and unlawful, it is deemed essential to preserve
secrecy. These queries answered satisfactorily,
we might be willing to wait before ascertaining
the truth of the report now extensively current,
that a large portion of this torte is to be brought
here at the meeting of the Congress in Novem
ber next, in order to be ready to overthrow the
Executive branch of the Government at the word
of command from the revolutionary leaders.
That this conspiracy only waits UDOD the chance
of a radical triumph in the grtai States to be
hatched into full life is sulliciently probable to
alarm every man in those States who owns a Go
vernment bond or has a dollar to loco by tho
hazards of revolution.
The Celebration of Mexican Indo.
We arc in receipt of papers, from the City of
Mexico to Sept. 19.
On the loth of September the anniversary of
the National Independence and of tile Restora
tion of the Republic was celebrated in the City of
Mexico, where thegreatest enthusiasm prevailed
among the people. The ceremonies commenced
by meetings in all the theatres; the President,-ac
companled by Mr. Lerdo, and others of his Min
isters, presiding at the National. The building
was brilliantly illuminated, and decorated with
the national 'flags And colors. The house was
densely crowded. The greatest enthusiasm pre
vailed, when at two and a half o'clock the Presi
dent made his appearance on the stage, which
had been beautifully fitted up for the reception
of the Chief Magistrate, the Cabinet, and other
high dignitaries of the republic. Ignacio Rami
rez, after having read the Declaration of Inde
pendence, delivered a very eloquent address,
and was repeatedly interrupted by general
applause. The singing and music which
followed were marked by the able per
formance of the artists. Beside Ignacio
Romero slveral others delivered speeches be
coming the occasion, and Colonel Garay, showed
in his address the imperative necessity which im
posed upon the Republic the painful duty of
- taking the life of Maximilian. Urging the ne
cessity of the civil power bein
placed over the
military for the safely of the Republic,he eulo
gized with a few words the merits of the Presi
dent, to which the citizens enthusiastically re
sponded. At 11 o'clock the President addressed
the audience, and declared himself devoted to the
welfare of the country and the defence of its
liberties and independence. He then returned
to the National Palace, followed by the cheers
and acclamations of the people.
Just before the departure of the President a
voice was heard from the highest gallery .in the
theatre, addressing Juarez, and thanking him in
the name of the workingmen of the capital for
his devotion to the cause of the people.
The - President was followed by thotoiands to
his private residence, who kept up a continuous
cheering until the dawn of day. About midnight
Juarez started for a walk in the plaza, hoping to
maintain his incognito; be was, however recog
nized, and it was with the greatest difficulty that
he succeeded_ in escaping into his own house
again. During his absence from home the crowd
In front of his house called for his , family, and
nothing but the appearance of his daughters on
the balcony would satisfy them. On his return
the calls for the President were so continuous
that he at last had. to present himself. He de
livered the following address:
"Citizens: The Government will comply with
all your demands, will meet all your wants, if
you will only give us time to do so. The reor
,ganization of the country is now the chief aim
'of •the Governmetit, and peace once established
firmly, our Whole attention will be devoted to the
prosperity of the workingmen and the welfare
of the people generally.'
The next morning was celebrated by a proces
• Simi composed of all the scholar of the various
charity schools and other institutions,the veteran
soldiers of the republic, the municipal cut orifice,
the President and his ministers, foll wed by a
long row of citizens, the corps of in allds, and
the garrison of the city. Firing or alit tea and
theatrical performances In the evening terms

NASHVILLE, Oct. 7, 1807.—Governor Brown
low's message, which will be delivered to the
Legislature tomorrow, recommends the repeal
of the law disqualifying* negroes from holding
- office and sitting on Juries.. He does not advise
that suffrage be extended to disfranchised whites,
but indulges in a groat deal of bitterness against
rebels and political cpponents. There Is a strong
probability that Brownlow will be elected United
States Senator. In that case Senator &titer, who
• was elected Speaker of the Senate to•day, would
be Acting Governor.
