" Soldiers f-Austria, who is increasing her

submit to her clemency.

Turin, April 27.
In addition to the proclamation addressed
to the army, the King of Sardinia has issued
a proclamation, countersigned 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
naleto England; she isks us to reduce our

who have thronged from every part of'italy

ry. L eneroached on no right which belongs 9
to the crown of ~Sardinia, as one of the mem- c
bers of the European family of nations. I 9
insisted on no guarantees against the recur
rence of similar events. The hand of peace a
which I in all sincerity extended, and which s
was taken, appeared to me to be a sufficient c
'uarantee. The blood which my army sied c
for the h.lnor and right of Aust ria I ,sacrified
on the altar of pea,:e. The reward ihr suc. I
unexampled forbearance was ar hnt-diate I
continuation of enmity, which increased from I
year t.> year, and perfi-lious agitation at t
t reptae and welfare of my Lombardo-Vene- v
tan king..::n. Well knowing w'at a lpreious t
boon peace was for my peoplo and for
& arope, I patiently bore with these new hos- a
tilities. My patience was not exhausted t
waen the tilore extensive me-Lure., which I
was forced to tely, in consequence of the t
revolutionary agitrvion on thp frontiers of ny t
Italian provinces and within satpe, wprp pade I
a a excuse for a higher degree of hostility. <
Willinglv acceptiug the well meant mediation I
of friendly powers for the maintenance of 4
peace, I ceansented to become a party to a
Congress of the five great powers. The four i
p.ints proposed by rue royal government of a
Geeat Britain as a basis for the deliberations I
of the Congress, were forwarded to my Cabi- I
net, and I accepted thei, with the conditions i
which were calculated to bring about a true, a
sincere and durable peace. In the conacious
ness that no atep on the part of my govern- I
mnt could. even in the moxt remote degree,
lead to a disturbance of the peace, I demand- I
e- that the power which was the cause of the I
complication and had brought the danger qf a
war, should, as a preliminary measureidisarm. i
Being pre,qed thereto by friendly powers, 1
at length accepted the proposal for a general
disarnamitent The tmediation failed in conse- I
quence of the unacceptableness of the condi
tonsr on which Sardinlia made her con~sent de-.
pendent. Only one means of maintaiining a
peace remained. I addressed myself directly
to the Sardinian Governent, and suammoned 1
it to place its army on a p--ace footing and to<
disband the free corpsa. A. Sardinia did not I

War is the scourge of maukind. I see with I
sorrow that the lives and property of thon- I
sands of my subjects are imperilled, and I
deeply feel what a severe trial war is foer my
realm, which, being occupied with internal
development, greatly requires the continuance
of peace. But the~heart of the monarch must
be silent at the comniaand of honor and duty.
On the frontier is an armed enemy, who, in 1

announqes his intention to obtain poas.wion I
of the dependencies of Aus:ria in Italy. To '
support him, the ruler over' France--whot
under futile pretexts interferes in the legallya
established relations of the Italian P..ninsula t
-has set his troops in mtovevent. Detach- t
meats of them have already crossed the fron
tiers of Sardinia. The crown which I re
ceived without.r-pot or blemish from nmy fore-r
fathers has alreaedy seen trying timles. The
glorious history of our country gives evidencet
that Providence, when there is a foreshadow- c
ing that t:,e gratest good of humanity is in e
danger of being overthrown in Europe, h~as r
frequently used the sword of Austria in or-i

Our struggle is a just one, and we begin it a

made, by order of his Imperial Majesty, to
the Senate and to the legislative body, ren
drs it needless for me toa revert to incidents t
which hive occupied public opinion for some ci

ig efforts have endeavored to obtain. In suchu
a serious conjuncture it is a great conrsolation um
to the Emperor's governmenat to be able to
submit without hesitation to the verdict of
Europe the question as to on what power the it
responsibility of events resta.
That the state of things in Ttaly was ab
normal, that the discontent and underhand pr
agitation which resulted therefrom constito- an
tod a danger for ever y one which reason bid de
o be stopped by a prudent precaution ; an th
nevitable crisis was understood equally by F~
England, Prussia and Russia, as well as by Ie
Erance. The unanimity of apprehensaions imn
rediately created the confirmity of senti- at
menta and measures. Lord Cowley's mission in
o Vienna, the proposal of a Congress, emana- co
ang from St. P~etersburg, the support given pr
sy Prussia to these attempts at an arrange- wi
nent, the eagerness of Franiceto adhere to th
;he combinations which followed each other to
ip to the last moment ; all these acts, in a sit
vord, emnanated from the same inspiration-.. tb
t.e a... an~d j desire to mnannant. a.
ace by no longer ignoring a difficulty which
evidently threatened to disturb it. -
In this piase of the affair, the Emperors
wvernment has had its share of initiative
d action; bt thi4 share-I am particular
stating it-hrs always been mixed up with
:ollective hlbor. France simply offered her
-operati n as a great European power to

Such an aitirance, by giving time to the
ediation of the powers to exert itself, al
wed the hope of the proximate meeting of
ie Congress. In fact, England had just set
ed, with the aisent of France, Prussia and
assia, the last, conditions for the meeting of
tat assemably where the place which justice
id rea.on assi;:nied to the Italian States was
-auted to them. Sardinia. on her part, ad

'evious di.-armament of all the powers which,
r some time past, had increased their 'mili
6ry strength. To these tokens of peace,
Ie Vienna Cabinet suddenly opposed an act
-ich, to characterize it as it deserves, is
1-ivalent to a declaraLtign of war.
Thus Austria destroys alone, and with in

A Postponement.-Our Sunday Schools
--.The Good. Cause.
The Sabbath School Celebration, intended for
-Thursday last, was postponed on account of the
duclemency of the weather. It is contemplated, as
-ye learn, to carry it 'out at some early day,-pro
bably in the month of June. This should be done
by all means. Our Suuday schools are becoming
institutions which all of us should be eager to ap
plaud and honor. In our several Churches -the
work is progressing with spirit and energy. The
3aptist school numbers about one huand,ed and
tten ty ; the- Methodist some sixty or seventy; and
the Episcopal school is also carefully fostered.
Besides those for. white children, all the denomi
nations have schools for the blacks which are in a
highly flourishing condition. And, taken all
together, they form a manifestation of religious
-progress which every good citizen,-not -to say
Christian,-should delight in encouraging by his
approbation, if iot by his active participation.
The spreading power of Sabbath school ingu
ences ranks high among the indications which
betoken the coming of that era wherein the powers
of darkness shall fall discomfited before the pre
valence of that wisdom which cometh from above.
Never before were these influences so extensive or
blessed with such abundant fruits. Throughout
the Protestant world this noble cause is awaken
Ing all classes and all seats to earnest exertion in
the propagation of evangelical truth. The labors
thus called forth are redoubling in eflicacy with
every succeeding year. True it is, that wicked
ness of the most revolting kind still stalks abroad
amongst men; But it is also true, that Religion is
lifting up her fair banners with now zeal, and the
-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 supposition in accordance with the
light of ?rophoy, so far asman may discern it. If
so, does not the Sabbath School 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 qucceg for goine gret cad. Is it
not ra igls 19 gay, thgt 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 knowledg' of God shall
cover 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 solumn of the church militant, until itsgrand
crescendo should pervade the four quarters of the
-globo with the universal hymn of "Peace on

Death 9f Hon. Daniel Wallace.
The up-country papers announce the death Of
Hon. DANsm. WALLACri of Union,-which event
occurred at his residence in that District on the
15th instant. GZXZRAL WALLACe was a self-made
man, as the term goes, and led a life of singular
energy and usefulness. Suedessful in his early
days as a merchant, he afterwards rose to eminence
in politics and in the military. He was often a
member of the State Legislature, and served oie
or two terms In Congress with high acceptability
to the spirited people of the old Pinckney District.
But for his declining health, it is probable that he
would have been honored with the office of Gover
nor, as a crowning compliment to a devoted eltisn
and an ardent lover of his native State. He was
ever censpleuous for his enthusiasm in the common
cause of States and Southern Rights,-.a Nullifier
in 1832, a Secessionist in 1851, and on all ocessiouis
ready to uplift his manly voice on the side of his
honest convictions. Yet was he generous and
considerate towards his opponents, while bold and
resolute in the maintenance of his principles.
The Spartanburg .ERpreas truly says:
In his death, the State has lost a warm-hearted
and devoted son; the South, a bold snd uncotp
promising defender of her rights; his family Is
agot ifP01tiont0 and loyjno han4g4 fathk.

Ileavy Rains- -Serious Damages.'
Within the last week or two, this part of time
country has been visited by very heavy rains.
Generally, they hare been fraught with great good
to the planting Interests. But there are some
neighborhoods wich have been considerably inju
red by the sternis. Srogi seysral portIons of this
distriet, we seeive accounts of disasters from this
cause. The young cotton has In a few locglities
been battered and destroyed by hail, necessitating
the work of thorough re-planting; while in other
places the winds and washing rains have played
havoc with the soil. The oat-crop, though, lifts
up Its blades in rejoicing; and corn too exults in
the result. Generally, we repeat, the fall of rain
has been a blessing,-as the crops will speedily

AUGUSTA, May 20.
.COtto.-A partial panic prevails at present in
,he cotton trade, in consequence of the doubtful
extent and :duration of the difficulties between
Austrla and Sardinia and France. Those difficul
ties hare cauked a serious decline in the public
runds of those coutries. incidentally affected the
rdue of the consolidated funds of England, and un
settled financial confidence throughout Europe.
Such a condition of affairs materially interferes
with commercial prosperity, and the cotton trade
is the first to feel its blighting influence. -At Liv
erpool, cotton has declined, from Its highest point,
about I@1d., (equal to about one and a half cents
of our currency,) while in this country cotton has
declined fully two cents on some grades, and from
two to three cents on other grades. It appears,
then, in the United States, that the apprehended
injury to the value of cotton bas been fully dis
rounted, if the decline here does not have the ef
feet of causing a still greater decline In Liverpool.
In this market, to-day, cotton may be regarded
as irregular in price, and In an unsettled condition.
We hear of lots classing Middling offered at 101
cents, and buyers at 10* cents. The highest pri
ces offered for Middling Fair are from 101 to 10J
cents, according to condition of bales, quality of
cotton, &e. The trade, however, may be said to
be at a stand.
Prorivion.-Thre -is a speculative feeling in
the provision trade, and prices hare recently im
proved. We quote for Clear Tennessee Sides 121
cents, and for Tennessee Shoulders 9@9J cents.
Western Ribbed Sidel sell from 111 to 12 cents,
and Shoulders 9@9J cents. Lard is firm at from
13 to 14 centi, according to quality and quantity.
Breadstuffe.-All commodities in the breadstuffs
line have advanced, andi are held at firm and full
prices. Superfine Flour sells from $7 50 to $8 00.
Wheat ranges from $110 to $1 50. Corn is firm
at $1@$1 05. Rice is firm at 5@5& cents, at
Grocerie.-Rio Coffee Is steady at from 12 to 13
cents; Laguayra 13J@14; and Java from 17 to
