states that the re-establishment of the pronto

crown, under the form of private councils at
tached to the administrative authoritid. Trade
schools, public charity, she., will be under their
superintendence. One cf the first questions to
be laid before them by the imperial government
will be the reorganization of the communes.
These Councils are to be composed of the
'representatives of the landed interest, town
ships, the clergy, and the ur.iversity. They
are only to give their opinion upon mutters,
laid before them by the government, but the
initiative is to be granted to certain commit
tees to be presided over by the Governors of
the provinces.
Letters from Vienna positively deny the ex
istence of the letter attributed to the Empress
Dowager of Russia.
Qrsova, July 29.—Whilst the Warnsdin fron
tier regiment was returning from Wallachia,
whore it had been in eantoments for some time,
and is just relieved by n Banat regiment, the
cholera broke out with such virulence on board
the steamer conveying them, that within a few
hours nearly three hundred of them were at
tacked, about a hundred of whom died, inch,.
ding some of the officers.
In consequence of this the commanding
Lieutenant Colonel ordered the steamer to draw
in close to the shore, a little below this place,
and disembarked the whole of his men, where
they bivouaced the first night, and remain for
the present, whilst tents, medicines and other
comforts have been sent to their relief from
here. The panic amongst the men was very
great as they firmly believed their provisions
had been poisoned.
The news from Kars direct comes down to
the 14th of July—six days later than the de.
apatch of Gen. Monravietf, describing his pro
menade in the muumnins. It is interesting (or
several reasons. Ileside, showing that the
enemy had not entirely cut oil the communica
tion, of the garrison—an undertaking, we con
ceive, that would require larger fumes 'bun
those under his command—it shows that the
garrison were in good spirits, and not the
least inclined to give up the contest.
In former wars the Turks always showed
themselves deficient not only in stratagem, hut
in quick military judgement of the intentions.
Prince Paaltiowiteli owed nearly all his glory

and moving the little army with more celerity,
and unfaltering determination, than the Si:ru

riably too late. An imposing demonstrAtion
in. one direction was followed by a rapid march
iu another. and thus he bewildered his foes,
nod eat up their troops in detail. Gen Mourn•
vieff has evidently followed closely in the steps
of his great exemplar and old comrade. Coun
ting on the laxity of Turkish vigilance, his first
movement was an attempt to surprise Kars ;
but he had not Turks alone to deal with, and
the presence of half a dozen Europeans fres
trate(' Ids plan.
Having tailed, and knowing that the Turkish
weakness was to quit a good. position to light
a battle in a bad one, 'and against gut enemy
who seemed to have made a mistake, dared
the Turks by a flank march; and offered the
larther provocation of leaving a detachment at
the Keni Kieni while he carried the main body
into the mountains in the hope of seducing the
Turla to quit Kars and risk a battle.
It new appears that after he returned to the
camp he continued these tactics, probably with
a view of wearing out the patience of the gar.
risen. mitts on the 10th of July au 'attack'
was made on the Karadagh, which tailed—pro.
bably only a demonstration with a view of ta•
kin advantage of anything that might "turn
up. l On the 12th, Muuravieff, we are told,
left only his Outposts before Kars, and appear.
ad to move again towards Erzeroum with the
main body.
On the 12th, bJwever, this movement proved
to have been a feint ; for the enemy returned
in three, and made demonstrations against two
different quarters of the Turkish positions.—
The object of the opp-ations is pretty well ap•
preciated at Kars, fur, as the writer of the let
ter from which we derive our information re
marks, "The Russians manoeuvred with the
view of inducing us to quit our position, which
we value too much to hazard."
On the Nth of July, therefore, Gen Mourn.

Madrid, Aug. 3.—The resolution of the
Spanish government to taken. Marshal O'Dom
nell liar passed two days with the Queon. On
his arrival a long and interesting cabinet coun
cil was held , and it was decided that Spain
should join the Western Alliance, and furnish
a contingent of 23,000.
This resolution was notified yesterday coo
tdng to the ministers of France and England.
At the council Marshal O'Donnell nod general
Zabala took the-lead in advocating the alliance.
M. Halves protnptly adhered to their opinions,
the Minister of Grace and Justico was undeci
ded, and young Alonzo Martinez, Minister of
Public works, was opposed to the policy Folio
tied. The Ministers of War and Finance with
held their opinions until Espartero should do
clam himself.
At first the Marshal was opposed to the pro.
ject, but he has since acquiesced in the argu
ments of O'Donnell and Zabala. The govern.
Inca will have to bring the matter before the
Curter, as the latter must vote the funds forth°
expedition. It is said that General Prim will
be advanced to the rank of lieutenant-general,
and appointed to command the expedition.
It might have been thought that the Infalli
ble Father of the Infallible Church, who had
proclaimed to all Chrisendoin his egrecious
exultation in having declared a new Article
of Faith in this nineteenth century, must have
laid in a st6ck of ghostly tit:dance end grate:a.
ton sufficient to last his time, and might hare
sung his “.Niinc dimities," in sublime indepen
dence of alt sublunary contigeneics.
Much to our concern, however, Pepe Pius's
Soul, he tolls us, is "disolated with inereditable
anguish." What is still more lamentable, is
that the Holy Father finds himself compelled
to do violence to "that mauseetude and mild.
ness, which,"—he acquaints us—lie derives
froM nature itself, and to arm himself with that
severity which, he further acquaints us, his
parental heart holds in horror I
Spain. Switzerland, Piedmont, have con
btrunied Pope Pius to put Lath "the Aimstol
ie mwerity." His Sardinian Majesty and his arc formally declared to have incur
red .the greater excommunication, and the
other ecclesiastical ceitsmes and penalties in.
Rioted by the Sacred Canons, the Apestolie
Constautioni, the General Councils, and shove
all, the Holy Council of Treat."
The Pope is too gallant a man to go quite
sn far against Queen Isabella at present, and
therefore contents himself with reprobating
and abrogathig the recent constitutioold laws
of that country, and declaring them null and of
none effect, so far ns they pretend to regulate
celesinstical property, or deprive the Church of
its "power and liberty" to engage in active per.
secution of members of any other communion:
lion who exist in Spain.
As regards Swituerland, His Holiness is too
much distressed nt nll that is going, on there,
to nnburtheu himself in details of his griofa
against that country, but he means to hold no•
other allocation to the Secret Consistory en
that subject. Spain mid Piedmont supply the
lamentable subject matter for the two idiom,
tions now given to the world.
The reader will ask ; what are they all about?
Why, about the law surpressing the greater
number of monastic orders is Piedmont, and
that recently passed in Spain, abolishing the
tenure of property in =amain, and
toting the public Hinds for land, as the some
of ecclesiastical revenues.
. .
In short, as General Zavalrt, the Spanish
Minister for Foreign Affairs, tells his Holiness
very plainly its answer to his present remom
strances, the main dispute is about a matter of
money. "The Q11.11'3 Government," writes
the Minister,"cannot forbear from expressing
the profoun concern with which, animated as
it is by sincerely Cad.lie dispositions, it secs
the Holy See engaged in a struggle in which
—even granting all its allegations—nothing is
in question but materialand mundane inter
We shall not, of course, enter into the argu
ment between the Pope and the General ns to
the right sense of the Concordat of ISM.—
The latter, indeed, cuts that question short, in
a style which might suggest matter for reflec
tion to his holiness by sayiti hat`at the point
things have now reached ght which
the question must now be It matters
little whether the terms of the article of the
Concordat in question should be understood
in one way or another."
That is a slight intimation to Pi. IX that
he is not living in the age of Gregory VII.—
His Holiness, however, is in his altitude also,
and insists that the Concordat definitely estab
lished that the Catholic Religion "should con
tinue to be the only religion of the Spanish
nation, to the exclusion of ereryother worship,
and that the Church should always retain the
use, of her primitive right to acquire new prop
erty, held by whatever title or 'tenure, and that
this right of property in the Church should be
invi.,lable, nut only. for what it then possessed,
but for whet it might acquire hereafter."
As rega.rds the matter of . money, which is
really substantial part of the grieVance,
General Zuvaly replies that the Church is only
included in the general rule now established
against the tenure of property in mortmain;
and has no right to complain that it is included
in that general rule, which admits nu exception
ecclesiastical or secular.
With regard to the alleged infringements of
the rights of the Catholic religion as the solo
religion of Spain, the Minister points out that
I no other form of public worship is permitted.
The liberty of the Church, then, one would
think, remained intact—even to the extent
that no other Church but herself enjoys a ves
tige of it.
This is not enough, however, for a Church
which has had an Inquisition at its orders. =
Throughout these allocutions the liberty mud

the prosecution recently carried on against a
number of our most esteemed and respectable
young men, for the alleged demolition by them
of the most corrupting, and peace disturbing
nuisance with which any village MO infected
and afflicted, deem it our duty to give public

pervading sentiment of this neighborhood.—

and encouraged, es nuisances of the worst

take decided measures to rid ourselves as well
of such laws, as of the nuisances which they are
alleged to sustain.
Setand, That while se utterly depreciate a
resort to anything like mob law for the correc•

The little seed of republican liberty which
years ago was transplanted from the idioms of
the United States to the African continent, has,
.under benign influences with which it buS been
surrounded, groWn into a vigorous young repub
lic, and .bids her to because at some future day,
a pnworfiskand iu fl uential nation.
- The results of the enterprise of planting barb

the cherished home and refuge of the fugitive
and outcast colored race—the only free and
civilized land in all the world where colored
men can and do fill every office in the gift of
the peeple sect where they are able to develop
ever high a noble faculty of their existence.
Liberia is net much of no agricultural coml.
try. Most of settlers have farmed upon a small
scale, for the season that a very few modern la
bor-saving machines oc improvements have
been introduced there. Tho earth, however,
is cultivated much more cheaply and easily
than in America.
There are but few drones in Liberia. All
who really wish for employment can find afield
for their labor either as mechanics, limners,
merchants, or day workmen. Upon the furies

in April last the wages of Americans were sty•

A tract of land is given, under certain restyle.

seldom plowed, and there are no working oxen
nod but few heroes in the State. When the
rice is ripe it is cut with a knife. Beside rice
and cassnda the emigrants also lain and sell
corn, and other vegetables. Sugar cane and
coffee, too, flourish remarkably well.

Shivery is prohibited by the constitution and
laws of the republic. The natives, neverthe•
less, frequently hind their children for a cer.

for money loaned, nr assistance rendered ; but
this is contrary to the laws. The number of
native Africans in the republic ut the present
time, is about two hundred thousand,
They live in the old patriarchal style, moving
about from place to place, and until subdued
by the Liberians, the different tribes were con.
gaudy at war. Many of them are now partly
civilized, and all aro rapidly coming under the

The climate of Liberia is very healthy after
the process of acclimating is over. But many

Day Book says there is fine pasture all over
the country now, and the price of butter ought
to be down to a shilling a pound. Why isn't
it ? Because the women and girls don't know
how to make it. For twenty years past the
girls' butter•making education has bees sadly
neglected. They can play the piano, but can•
not churn ; can dance, but can't skim the milk;
can talk a little French, but don't know how to
work out the The women who
made the butter in Westchester, Duchess and
Orange counties are passing away and there
ore none to take their places. That's why but.
ter is high, the Day Book thinks ; batboy° not

machines? Now we regard ice cream the
cause of dear butter,besules theimmense quan
tity deli!): used in families, It is mere proti
table to sell the milk and cream than to make
it into butter.
