Proclamation of the Kcing of Sardinia.
The following proclamation has been ad

" Soldiers !-Austria. who is increasing her
armies on our frontier and threatens to invade
our territory because here liberty reigns with
order-because, not might, but concord and
affection between the people and the Sover

troans of oppressed Italy here find an echo
--Austria dares to ask us, who are only arm
ed in self-defense, to lay down our arms and
submit to her "lemency.
" That insulting demand received the reply
it deserved. I rejected it with contempt.

will take an insult to your King and your
nation as an insult to yourselves. The an

reputation for bravery. You will have for~
companions those intrepid soldiers of France,

and whom Napoleon Ill., who is always to
be found where there is a juat cause to defend
or civilization to promote, sends generously
to our assistance in numerous battalions.
"March, then, conlident in victory, and

work which will be your battle-cry.
Turin, April 27.
In addition to the proclamation addressed
to the army, the King of Sardinia has issued
a prodamation, counztersigned by Count Ca
your, to Italy. The substance is as follows.
" Austria, who boasts of her love for peace,
attacks us by refusing to submit to a Euro
pean Congress. She violates the promises
iileto England; she sks us to reduce our
artny, and to abandon those brave volunteers
who have thronged fromu every part of'Italy
to defend the acred flag of Italian indepen
dence. I intrust the cares of Government to

I havo ordered my taithful and gallant army
to put a stop to the inimical :t i, wiicb for a
seric< of years have beei committed by the

the integrity of tue reahn placeu by G- under

very highest point. By at) doing I have fu
filled the painful but unavoidable duty of a
sovereign. My conscience being at rest, I
can loZ tp to aa omnipotent God, and pa
tiently aw at His award. With Confidence I
leave my dcision to the inpartial jigtment
of contemporaneous and future gentrt is.
Of the approbation of msay itinful subjects I
am sure. More than ten years ago the same
enemy-violating international law and the
us iges of war, wit:iout any 'ffence being
given-.entered the Lotmbardo-Veneti.mi ter
ritory with the intentio.a of acquiring posies
sion of it. Althona the enemy was twice
totally defeated by my gallant army, and at
the mercy uf the victor, I behaved generous
ly and proposed a reconcilliation. I did not
appropriate to myselt one inch of his torrito
ry. I encroached on no right whiob belongs
to the crown of 8ardinia, as one of the mem
bers of the Europea- family of nations. I
insisted on no guarantees against the recur
rence of similar events. The hand of peace
which I in all sincerity extended, and which
was taken, appeared to me to be a sufficient.
.,uarantee. The blood which my army shed
for the ho.nor and right of Austria I racrifinel
oa the altar of peace. The reward for suc..
unexampled forbearance was a hutni.-diate
continuationi of enmnity, which increawed froin
year t-, year, and perfl-lioui agitation aga nt
t jeptace antd welfare of my Lombardo-Vene
tian king.:o:n. Well knowing wiat a m e.iotum
boion peace was fur my people and for
Z arope, I p Atiently bore witi these new hos
tilities. My patience was not exhausted
wilen tli mjore extensive mer-ure, which I
was forced to t4ly, in consequence of t.he
revolutionary agit*tion ot thp frontiers of my
Italian provinces and within 4sme, wprp gade
a i excuse for a higher degree of hostility.
Willingly accepting the well meant mediation
of friendly powers for the maintenance of
peace, I consented to become a party to a
Congress of the five great powers. The four
p.inS proposed by tue royal government of
Gveat Britain sq a buais for the deliberations
of the Congress, were forwarded to my Cabi
net, and I accepted them, with the conditions
which were calculated to bring about a true,
sincere and dutable peace. In the con-cious
ness that no step on the part of my govern
ment could. even in the tiA remote degree,
lead to a disturbance of the peace, I demand
e-i that the power wbich was the cause of the
complication and had brought the danger qf
war, should, as a prelituinary measureAtdisarn.
Being pressed thereto by friendly powers, 1
at length accepted the proposal for a general
disarmnament The mediation failed in conse
quence of the uanacceptableness of' the condi
tion's on which Sardzinia made her co.nsent de
pendent. Only one means of maintaining
peace remained. I addressed myself directly
to the Sardinian Government, and summoned
it to place its army on a p--ace foouinig and to
disband the free corps. As Sardinia did not
accede to my demiand, the mtomen~tt f.or deciding
the matter by an appa4l O. arms has arrived.
I have ordered nmy army to estar Sardini.
I am aware of' the vast imnportance of the
measure, and if ever my duties as a maonarcb
weighed heavily on me it is at this moment.
War is the scourge of maukind. I see with
sorrow that the lives and property of thou
sands of' my subjects are imperilled, and
deeply feel what a severe trial war is for mty
realm, wvhich, beinig occupied with intertnal
development, gtreatly requires the continuance
of peace. But therheart of the monarch must
be silent at the comm aand of honor and duty.
On the frontier is an armed, enemy, who, in
alliance tvith the revolutionary party, opaenly
announces his intention to obtain posesionm
of the dependencies of Aus:ria in Italy. To
support hitm, thme rtuler over' France..who
under futile pretexts interferes in the legally
established relations of the Italian P~ninsula
-has set his troops in movevent. Detach
ments of them have already crossed the fron
tiers of Sardinia. Thte crown which I re
ceived without r-pot or blemish from my fore
fathers has already seen trying times. The
glorious history of our country gives evidence
that Providence, when there is a forcshadow
ing that te gratest good of humanity is in
danger of being overthrown ini Europe, has'
frequently used the sword of Austria in or
der to dispel that shadow. We are again on
the eve of such a period. Thte overthrow of
the things that be is not only aimed at by
factions, but by thrones. (The original cannoet
be rendered literally, but its sense is, that
te present revolution-try tnovemnent is catuseda
by mo narchs as well as by private iindi vidu als.)
The sword which I have been forced toi dr.aw
is sanctified, inasninch as it is a def.mace for
the honor and rights of all peoples and States,

for the eagle of Austria will, with their sup

Our struggle is a just one, andI we begin it
with courage and confidence. We hope, how

The French Mauifesto.
Sa : The communication which has been
made, by order of his Jumperial Majesty, to
the Senate and to the legislative body, ren
ders it needle.s fur me to revert to incidetnts
which have occupied public opituion for some
weeks past, and have been the subsject of my
last despatchmes. The gravity of thea present
state of affair-s has reached a culminating
point, and1 the denoaescal before mas will not.
unhappily, be that which honest andl per-sever-.
in eors hae endeavored to tobtain. In stuch
a serious conjuncture it is a great consolation
to the Emperor's governmentt to be able to
submit without hesitation to the verdict of
Europe the question as to on what power the
responsibility of events rests.
That the state of things in Ttaly was ab
normal, that the discontent and underhand
agitation which resulted therefrom constitu
ted a danger for evem y one which reason bid
to be stopped by a prudent precaution ; an
inevitable crisis was understood equally by)
England, Prussia and Rlussia, as well as by
Erance. The unanimity of apprehensions imn
mediately created the conformity of senti
ments and measures. Lord Cowley's mission
to Vienna, the proposal of a Congress, emana-<
ting from St. Petersburg, the snpport given
by Prussia to these attempts at an ar-range-1
ent, the eagerness of Franceto adhere to 1
Je combinations which followed each other 1

word, emnanated from the -same inspiration.-.

eace by no longer ignoring a difficulty which g
to evidently threatened to disturb it.
In this jase of the alair, the Emperors i
lovernment' has had its share of initiative
tnd action ; but this salre-I am particular
a stating it-has always been mixed up with
L collective l&bor. France simply offered her
e-o-loprati i as a great European power to
settle ainicibly and honestly with the other -
power4 a question which-1 do not deny it
arosnled htr sympatines; but in which she
lid nut yet perceive particular duties to ful
til or urgent iisrcrests to dtfend. The day
upon wihica i be Vieinna Calilnet had oromised,
by a solinit dleclaratiOni. not tio commI1iiiptice
hoitilities. it s:emted it-elf to anticipate the t
ttitinle Winch any aggressive aet against t
Pie-niont wou d cause the government of the 1
Emperor to assume. .
Such an as.'irance, by giving time to the
mnediation of the powers to exert itself, al
lowed the h'ope of the proximate meeting of
tue Cungress. In fact, Englanil had just set
tiled, with the aisent of France, Prussia and
Russia, the last conditions for the meeting of
that assembly where the place which justice
and reason assigied to the Italian States was
granted to them. Sardinia. on her part, ad
hered to the principle of a simultaneous and
previous .i-armuanent of all the powers which,
for soie time past, had increased their 'mili
tary streugth. To these tokens of peace,
the Vienna Cabinet suddenly opposed an act
wLiich, to characterize it as it deserves, is
equivalent to a declaratign of war.
Thus Austria destroys alone, and with in
tent, the earnest labors of England, seconded
&) honestly by Russia and Prussia, facilitated
with so much moderation by France. Not
only does she exclu.le Sardinia from the Con
gress; sbp 'summon' her, under penalty of
coercion, to disarm without any condition
within three days.
A larger military force is displayed at the
eame time on the banks of the Ticino, and, to
say the truth, it is in the midst of an advan
cing army that the Austrian commander-in
chief awaits the reply of the Paris Cabinet.
You are aware, sir, of the impresslon pro
-lueed at London, Berlin and St. Petersburg
11y the untimely an. fatal resolution of the
ionna Cabinet. The astonibhment and dis
approval of the three powers was displayed
as a protest whicn public opinion has echoed
throughout all Eurup .
If England, Pruils:a arid Russia, by the
step they hasteted to take, have been able
to relieve the:r moral responsibility and to
satisfy the exactions of their offended digni
ty, the government of the Enperor-actua
ted, however, by analagous considerations
had to mark its attitude more distinctly, and
..ther obligations were imposed upon it.
N'othing uloi4es the solidarity which was
establisned qt the *ontmospppt lieween us
and the mediating powers; the question re
mains at bottom the same; but we have too
muen contidence in the intentions of which
those powers have given us such striking
proofs to fear for a moment that they should
misunderstand the sense of the policy which
ancient traditiuns and imperious necessities of
geographical position so naturally indicate
France, since half a century, has never pre
tended to exercise an interested influence in
Italy, and it is not she, assusedly, who can be
accused of having attempted to arouse the
remembrance of ancient struggles and histori
cal rivalities. All that she has hitherto ask
9d for, and treaties agree with her wishes, is
that the States of the (Italian) Peninsula
should live for themselves and manage their
own affairs at home as well as in their foreign
relations. I aiu not aware that a different
view is taken at London, Berlin, or St. Peters
burg than ast P'aris; however it may be,
circtnstances have placed Austria lowards
the various powers or Italy in a position un
animously judied as preponderating.
Sardinia alone has hitherto escaped an in
finence which, by general consent, has changed
iu an inportant portion of Europe the balance
Kof power which it was attempted to establish.
Everywhere slee this fact was very grave;
but whatever were our priyate sentimpents, at
might suffice for us, knowing the opinions of
the other Cabineta, to point out to theni the
evil to correct,
So much reserve, when Sardiniais concern
ed, would be to forget our most essential In
Mrpts. It is not the conformnation of tbe
ground which, iem this side, commands one of
the frontiers of France; the passes of the
Alps are not in our hands, and it is more im
portant for us that. the key should be kept at
Turin, and at Turin only. ,French considera;
tions, but which are also European consider
ations as long as respect of the rights and of
the legitimate interest of the powers will con
tinue to serve as a guiide to their reciprocal
relations--.these considerations, I say, do not
allow the Emlperor's GJovernmnent to besitate
npon the ine of policy it ought to follow
whben a State so considerable as Austria uses
threatenigg language towards Piedmont, and
openly prepares to dictate laws to it. This
obligation acquires additionual force from the
refusal of Austria to discuss before actitnr.
We do not wish at any price to find ourselves
face to face with an accomplishing fact, and
it is sucti fact which the Government of the
Emperor is resolved to prevent. It is not,
therefore, an offensive -attitude, it is a mneas
tare of defence which we are now adlopting.
Auncient remembhrances, comnmunity of
origin, a recent allia- ce of the sotvereign
housesi, unite us to S-trdinia. These are seriotus
reasons for sympathy, which we fully appre
ciate, but which, perhaps, would not suffice
to decide us. What distinctly- poinits out our
path is the permainent awld hereditary inter
est of F~r.meie, the abs~olute impoausibility for
the Emnperor's Govermoeisnt to atllow a low
to be struck which w nbll establish at the
.Alps, conitrary to the wishie< of a frienidly ina
tion and to tihe wi-h of its movereain. a state
of thinigs which would subject the whole of
Italy to a foreign influence.
Ulia Imperial Maje-ty, strictly faithful to
the words which lie pronounced wheti the
French people recalleAd himt to the throno of

any personal amubitionu or desire of conquest.
It is niot long since the Etmperor gave a proof,
in an European ertoi<, that moderation wvas the
SOUl of his policy. That mode auon still pre
sities over his designis, anid, while shielding
the interest which Providence has entrusted

h Pestponement'-Our Sunday Sehools M
--The Good Cause. M
The Sabbath School Celebration, intended for ,
Lhursday last, was postponed on account of the &
nolemeney of the weather. It is contemplated, as
re learn, to carry it out at some early day,-pro
>ably in the mouth of June. This should be done
>y all means, Our Sunday schools are becoming d
natitutions w"ich all of us should be eager to ap- A
ilaud and -honor. In our several Churches 'the ti
work is progressing with spirit aud endgry. The f
Baptist school numbers about one huinded tad ,
wenty ; the Methodist some sixty or seventy; and S
the' Episcopal school is also carefully fostered. I
Besides those for.white children, all the denuomi
nations have schools for the blacks which are in a
highly flourishing condition. And, taken all a
together, they form a manifestation of religious d
progress which every good citizen,-not *to say i
Christian,-should delight in encouraging ly his i
approbation, if iot by his active participation.
The spreading power of Sabbath school iniu- f
ences ranks high among the Indications which a
betoken the coming of that era wherein the powers 1
of darkness shall fall discomfited bef6re the pre- c
valence of that wisdom which oometh from above. c
Never before were these influences so extensive or c
blessed with such abundant fruits. Throughout I
the Protestant world this noble cause is awaken
ing all classes and all sets to earnest exertion in F
the propagation of evangelical truth. The labors c
thus called forth are redoubling in efiaoaey with
every succeeding year. True it is, that wicked
ness of the moot revolting kind still stalks abroad
amongst men; But it is also true, that Religion is I
lifting up her fair banners with now zeal, and the P
helmets of her soldiery are glittering on every side
with unwonted brightness. Who knows but that
the Host of Heaven is already marshalling Its pre
parations for the last grand battle with the Great
Enemy ? Many wise and good there are, who
regard the supposiltion In accordance with the
light of propheoy, so far an man may discern It. If
so, does not the Sibbath Sohool deserve to be
esteemed one of the prime rallying points on earth
for those who would " come up to the help of -the
Lord against the mighty?" The rebel-spirits
may well tremble atits Increase. The Arch-Trai
tor of them all may find in it one of the most
certain signs of his approaching downfall. We
surely cannot be mistaken in terming it an In
strumentality which Heaven's King is rapidly
advancing to lccefe for gono gre t end. Is it
not raid $p gay, t t it is at least a highly im
portant tributary of that great tide of glory which
shall continue henceforth to deepen, and expand,
and gather force, until the knowledge of God shall
oover the earth as the waters cover the sea.
Viewed in.this light, who will refuse his applause
to the success of the Sabbath School? Who does
not wish its laborers God-speed in their noble
work? Who would not join in honoring and ex
alting the cause ? Who would not aid (if he might)
in swelling the triumphant chorus of this advan
cing eolumn of the church militant, until itagrand
crescendo should pervade the four quarters of the
globe with the universal hymn of "Peace on
earth-.-Good Wll totoards inwn."
