Lato accounts by tho Atlantic cabio
show that thc British Government is
apprehensive of an carly uprising of
tho Irish people. We learn that large
bodies of troops have been already
sent to Ireland, and that further de?
tachments tire daily swelling the ranks
of the army of occupation. The ut?
most vigilance is also observed with
regard to vessels coming from Ame?
rica, and all passengers, of Irish or
American nationality, are subjected
to close surveillance. All these pre?
parations ave convincing that Eng?
land is now aware of the serious dis?
satisfaction existing in the isle. Since
the early part of the last century,
Ireland has been strongly antago?
nistic to England. There has been a
want of congeniality and friendly feel?
ing, without which, any union, in the
strict acceptation of the term, was
impossible. The rebellion of *0S was
pretty good evidence that the restless
feeling of the Irish people against
their riders had not died out; and
the present Fenian organization is
another proof that the same ill-blood
between the two nations, from which
the contest of '98 sprang, is yet ex?
isting. The matter is oue for grave
consideration on the part of the Bri?
tish Government; oue which it would
do well to notice in tho coming ses?
sion of Parliament.
Mr. Bussell, tin. war correspondent
of the London Times, has the follow?
ing graphic sketch of the declaration
of thc freedom of Venice, on the li)th
It is done! Italy is free at last, from
the Alps to the' Adriatic. At half
past 7 this morning, the generals and
the civil rulers of Venice met, and
when they separated, it was on one
side to send forth the military com?
mandant und the last battalion on
their way to Trieste, and on the ot her
to ring their bells, hoist the banner
of Italy fro ni the masts that once
bore up the triple gonfalons of Ve?
nice, Cyprus and the Morea, and pro?
claim '* Venezia Liberata.'"' Scarcely
had the vessel iu which Gen. Ale
maun aud his staff'embarked left the
harbor, when the Italian war ships
began to come in. It was in vain
that the municipality had elaborated
a scheme which was to give an artis
tical appearance of unanimity to the
decoration of the streets-in vain had
they named 9 o'clock as the hour to
watch for the sound of bells from the
tower of St. Mark's. The people
wanted no leaders in the matter.
Enough for them that "lo slraniero"
was gone; their first act of liberty
was exercised without hesitation, and
the city blossomed like a rose. In?
nate gentleness, called forth by the
wise advice of their magistrates, kept
them quiet, for the most part, till the
Austrians wore well out of sight; but
soon there broke out here and there
gradually trial shouts of joy, swelling
and gathering force from minute to
minute, till at the sound of the first
hammer-stroke on the swinging metal
high up in the air above the Great
Piazza, the whole city gave one ex?
ulting roar, and strong men embraced
with tears like children.
THE STATE OP SPAIN*.-The pro?
vincial deputations of Spain have
just been dissolved, and the muni?
cipal councils are to he entirely re?
newed, although, according to the
terms of the law, the renewal ought
to be but partial. But tho Govern?
ment has taken upon itself to order
otherwise, subject to the ulterior
ratification of the Chamber, for the
unanswerable reason that the present
composition of the municipal coun?
cils is displeasing to it. They were
elected at a period when Liberal
ideas still possessed some influence;
but in the present state of public
opinion, this inllucnco, in tho lan?
guage of the report presented to the
Queen, "has become quite intolera?
ble." What is now wanted are mu?
nicipal councillors endowed with the
"habit of discipline," and in no way
disposed to exaggerate tho impor?
tance of their humble functions.
Modest men may certainly be found;
but as, after all, ono cannot be cer?
tain of anything, and as the strongest
heads may be affected by pride, it is
intended to restrict by a law tho
functions of tho municipal councils
and of the provincial deputations.
Tho Government announced that it
would forthwith adopt now measures
for replacing society upon its proper
basis. Tho law in question is proba?
bly one of those measures, and we
seo, moreover, that, if it has se?
riously sot about saving society, it
doc3 not falter in che task. Trans?
portation continues without inter?
mission. Fernando To receives daily
frosh exiles, who are sent there to
perish from yellow fever; thc prisons
are overflowing with ruined persons,
who are kept in confinement without
reason being assigned; and if abso?
lutely every one is not arrested-if
there still remain some inhabitants
of Madrid at liberty, tho reason is
that the prisons are full, and that
lhere is no room for other victims.
But from time to time vacancies do
occur, which are soon supplied. It
is, therefore, only a matter of pa
tieuce. and the turn of all will come.
The Narvaez Cabinet re-establishes
public tranquility and consolidates
order in Spain nearly after the fashion
of the Russians in the kingdom of
Poland.- Journal des D?bats, Oct. 26.
TJIE POPE AND FRANCE.-Thc exe?
cution of thc Convention of Septem?
ber is now taken for granted as being
all but accomplished. Letters from
Rome, published in the Temps, say
that according to the dispositions
made, the French army of occupation
will be embarked before the 15th
December. The Pope has resolved
to await events at tho Vatican, but
though lie is calm, the persons about
him are anything but easy as to the
future. The downfall of the tem- ,
poral power is regarded as certain by
friends and foes of the Papacy alike,
the only difference in their apprecia?
tion of the circumstances being that
the enemies of the Pope believe that
thc rising will becalm, that the resist?
ance will bo merely nominal, und
that a municipal government having
been installed, it will proceed at once
to vote tho annexation of thc Papal
States to Italy. The Pope's friends
believe, on the contrary, that there
will be bloodshed, anaarc':3r, and the
fear of private vengeance. Under
these circumstances, the Italian Go
vernment is preparing for whatever
may fall out. It desires that tho
Roman people may do as they please
without coercion either way, and
troops have therefore been placed so
that, if serious disturbances arise, the
French army could be immediately
replaced by Italian soldiers. They
would go there, however, net to
restore the. authority of the Pope,
but to quell disturbances, and place
the supreme power iu the bauds of
the municipality, who would have to
consult the country before the union
with Italy could be accomplished.
[London Shipping Gazette, Oct. 27.
HORRIUEE OUTRAGE.-On Friday
evening last, Mrs. Garvin and hoi
daughter, aged fifteen,.were brutally
murdered near Orangeburg, whore
they resided. The unfortunate ladies
were returning home from a visit to
neighboring friends, in a buggy, and
were unaccompanied by any protect?
or. Their bodies were discovered
the next morning, and, on examina?
tion, it was found that their skulls
bad been fractured. Suspicion im?
mediately fell upon a discharged
colored soldier, whose wife ha'd been
in tho employ of Mrs. Garvin, and
with whom she had recently bad some
misunderstanding. Search was made
and the suspected negro arrested, in
company with another, and sufficient
evidence elicited to implicate both in
the murder. They were conveyed to
Orangeburg and placed safely in con?
finement, although the indignation
of those who were cognizant of the
facts was so great that tho citizens
were with difficulty restrained from
inflicting summary punishment on the
offenders. As the Court of General
Sessions meets in Orangeburg this
week, it is to be boped that they will
be immediately tried and, if guilty,
bo punished to the full extent of the
WHAT FORNEY SAYS OF CONDITIONS.
In a letter to a member of the Ala?
bama Legislature, Forney says:
"And now I have to say, in reply
to your question, that if Alabamaand
tho oilier Southern States were, even
at this late day, cordially and prompt?
ly to consent to the conditions therein
contained, in my opinion nothing
'else will be required by the Federal
Government in order that the people
of tho States shall be restored to all
their rights under the Constitution.'
Such, undoubtedly, was the determi?
nation of the large majority of Con?
gress when that body adjourned on
the 28th of July, and such would, I
believe, be the response of the tri?
umphant people of the North and
West at tho present time."
The Mobile Tribune predicts that
tho South will be more prosperous
fivo years hence than it has ever been.
GIVING NEGROES Pennie OFFICES.
Tho election of two colored mon, on
Tuesday, to seats in the Legislature
of Massachusetts, is certainly a no?
velty in American politics. The evqnt,
however, is ono that will undoubtedly
soon he followed by others of like
character in other States, and there
will bo a logical advance from the
struggle as to giving negroes votes to
a contest as to giving them public
offices. Tho question is a simple
enough one in tho New England
States, but when the principle comes
to be applied to the Southern States,
in some of which the negroes must
possess a controlling political power,
and bo ablo to elect a majority pf
blacks to the Legislature, it will be
quite another matter.

Mn. SEWARD.-The radicals arc
taunting Mr. Seward not a little.
His prophecy of 40,000 majority in
New York for Hoffman is the occa?
sion of much joking. The New York
Herald, which is serving radicalism
with a new born zeal, assails him
with especial delight. It says that
the old-established lima of "Weed &
Seward, once doing a lucrative busi?
ness, has at last gone to pieces, and
is hopelessly and helplessly bank?
rupt. "risfJEt advises Mr. Seward to
leave the Cabinet, and give place toa
"vigorous, earnest man'' in the State
Department. The radicals had better
not aggravate Mr. Seward. He is a
man of the sharpest sagacity and the
keenest malice. He is, withal, one
of the coolest and most deliberate of
men. He is reported to have said:
"They think I am worn out; I shall
teach thom something different be?
fore the year has passed."
THANK GOD, THE COUNTRY IS SAVED!
Since tho election, a great many re?
spectable old gentlemen, politicians
and others, are thanking Heaven and
saying their prayers because the
country is saved. The country never
was in danger. It is not in danger
now. The people had it in their
keeping, and that was enough to in?
sure its safety. Witness the fiasco ol'
Forney in Maryland, thc fiasco of
Butler in New York, and the l?aseos
of Brownlow and Jack Hamilton and
the rest of them all over the land.
These fellows are intended to make
mischief, but none of them succeed?

In a speech delivered by Oren. How?

FEVERS, CHILLS, AGUE, &C
The cause of fever is thc contamination of
the blood by some morbific agent. The
nerves connected with nutrition and or?
ganic contractility Buffer alteration iu their
composition. Tho muscles, deprived of
nervous influence, begin to waste, and this
wasto produces heat. Thc heart is in?
creased in its action, and tho blood is ren?
dered still moro impure by receiving thc
wasted tissues by tho continued action of
the morbid agent, as well as by thc func?
tions of thc lungs, liver and spleen being
impeded. Purify, therefore, the springs of
life, thc blood. Uso the "Queen's Delight,"
the great blood remedy, and all morbid
agents will bo removed. Thc Queen's De?

PEACE HATH ITS VICTORIES.-To prevent
or conquer disease is a grand achievement,
and as surely as bullet and bayonet will
destroy, so sundy will HOSTETTER'S BITTERS
preserve and prolong life.
This is the most trying period of the
year. The stamina of the strongest yields
more or less to the consuming temperature
of mid-summer. Vigor oozes from every
pore. Thc strength ?)f man passes aw?ay
in invisible vapor, and weaker woman be?
comes relaxed and nerveless. It was to
meet such difficulties that Hostet tor's Bit?
ters were given to society. It is to prevent
the evil consequences to which an un?
braced, depleted, debilitated organization
is liable, that they aro recommended as a
summer tonic for both sexes. Old people
die of exhaustion every day, who might
have kept death at bay for years to come
by an occasional resort to this powerful
and harmless vegetable stomachic.
Nine-tenths of thc community, rich as
well aa poor, work continually. If their
hands are unemployed, their brains are
busy, and head-work is as depressing to
the vital energies as muscular toil. But
tone the system with Hostettcr's Bitters
and the wear and tear of business life will
be comparatively unfelt even in the most
oppressive weather. No langer will bo ex?
perienced, for as fast as the vital forces are
expended, they will be recruited and re?
newed by this healthful restorative. As a
summer invigorant, it is indispensable to
voling and old. .Sold everywhere.
