STATE AGRICULTURAL FAIR.—The Ex
hibition of the Pennsylvania State Agri
cultural Society for 1859, is to be held at
the Poweltown Grounds, Philadelphia.—
'rhe time for holding the fair has not yet
been decided upon. The merchants and
business men of Philadelphia have been
quite liberal in making subscriptions to•
wards defraying the expeases and getting
it the Exhibition on an extensive scale.
MOP When it is rememberedthat the
only two U. S. Senators that the Locofnco
party could boast of in all the New Eng
land States were defeated in Connecticut,
thus sweeping out the last onstage of the
party in the Eastern States, the render can
early imagine what trifling.matters it takes
to encourage the unterrified Democracy.'
The only position they held in Connecticut
they lost, but because they did not lose
their last hold there by an entire unanimous
vote, they are gratified. They are wel
come to all that kind of comfort, if it of.
fords them any.
ICT'When Mr. Buchanan was running
for the Presidency, we were promised
that he would leave the institutions of lion•
ass in the hands of her settlers; that lie
would build a railroad to the Pacific ; that
he would gladden the home of the laborer,
at least in Pennsylvania. by protection, and
that he would guard the national gold with
strict economy. What has become of all
these promised measures ? Kansas is still
kept outside the door, because she reluses
slavery; the first sod has not been turned on
the Pacific railroad ; the Pennsylvania la
borer finds by the defeat of the Tariff, that
he has been duped and the expenditure
of the public money has been doubled.
All the promises he made to get office were
broken as soon as he got it.
The War in Europe.
The aspect 01 zuropeati aani, a „-
sent is by no means flattering, and it may
be ere this that actual hostilities have ta
ken place between some of the leading
powers. France and Russia have enter
ed into an alliance, and are rapidly send
ing troops to the threatened territories.
The ultimate aim of this war on the
part of France and. Russia, the two Brent
powers whose policy has brought it on, is
very probalajy the possession of the left
bank of the Rhine for the one, and of the
Bosphorus for the other. As yet, howev•
er, the lull scope of the conflict is not de
veloped ; but its immediate and apparent
objects are simple and easily explained.
Hostilities have been begun by Austria
against Sardinia, and the step is justified
by the former, as a necessary act of self
defence. Austria complains in her mani•
festo that, after years of liostility,Sardinia•
has finally taken up a position of declared
antagonism to her rights. By her arma
ments she has placed herself in a state of
perpetual preparation for attack; and the
invasion of the Sardinian territories pro
fftses to have for its object only to compel
her to disarm.
Sardinia, on the other hand, complains
that Austria, not content with the posses
sion of those parts of Italy assigned to her
by the Treaty of 1815, aspires to a com
plete control of the whole Italian peninsula
that, by means of her garrisons on th e
south aide of the Po, she sustains Govern
ments of so oppressive a character as to
keep up a constant state of agitation and
discontent; and that the peace of Italy can
only be preserved by the withdrawal of
the troops of Austria within her own limits
and the renunciation of the right of inter
vention which she claims against any at_
tempt on the part of the inhabitants of those
countries to depart (rain the Austrian mod
el of government and to approach to that
of Sardinia. She alleges that her arma
ments are strictly defensive, and that they
are necessary to guard her independence,
and to save her from being reduced to the
humiliating position occupied by all the
other Italian States.
The manifesto of the French Govern.
ment assumes as the basis of the action of
France in the case, the alarm produced in
the kingdom of Sardinia by the warlike
preparations of Austria, end the necessity
which France is under of protecting Sar
dinia against Austrian attack.
The objects of the Austrians and Sar.
dinians respectively are plain enough.
They represent two hostile theories as to
the government of Italy. It is clear that
neither would be satisfied without the en
:ire overthrow of the other. The problem
if indeed it is a problem, is to tell wha t
the French Emperor wants or what would
satisfy him. Upon this point Itis mani
festo tails to throw any light. lie pre

The War News.
By the arrival of the last steamer from Eu.

from the seat of war. The question of war or
of peace - is definitely settled by this news, and
it is not necessary to comment or speculate on
the chances. The war is a fact. 'rho Austri

have already commenced. The French trunps

The main body of the Austrian army messed
the Ticino by the bridge of Boffalora on the 28th
of April. This bridge is a splendid structure

size. It is 1,000 feet long, and cost about
$640,000. R•e are glad to find in the news no
