LANSING STATE REPUBLICAN
TIKHUAY MOKXISC. MAY 34. I3!. The War. What may be " the fortune of war," it is for none now to predict. War has begun wLo hall foretel, when or where the end. Austria has made her declaration, and follows up the same, by crossing the Tictn-, an J by sweeping down into Sardinia. The Albany Journal writer upon this subject says: "They have possession of Lake Maggiore, and have successively ceptur ed Novara, Mortara, Yigerano and the smaller towns lying on the line of their inarch. In the face of overwhelming odd, the Sardinian forces retreat, and the Austrian carry everything be fore them. They are now within fifty mi!e3 of Turin. It would not be surprising if the next steamer brought news that they were sutnmouing that Capital to surrender. Meanwhile, where arc the French ? One p:irt of them, who came by the sea, are at Genoa, on the extreme southern coast ; the rent, who came across the mountains, are at Suz.i, on the ex treme western frontier. TLey are at the two points in the Kingdom which were most remote from the scene of Austrian attack. They have to cross the whole country before they can meet the enemy face to face. Two days, however, would sullied to ilo this, were they prepared for the field. Hut that paraphernalia of artui and munitions, provisions, stores, baggage, ambu lances, horses, kc, without which an army can not march, is hardly complete, and the Austrian probably have had full sway for a week. During i hut time thev could subjugate a lure- tract, and commence lewinc tribute to " make the War support the War." Hut while Austria is thus victorious in the field, she leaves grave domestic troubles behind her. Her Declaration of War is simultaneously accompanied by a virtual confession of bank ruptcy. Her National Hank has suspended spe fie imvmeiit, and her financiers are in the mar ket for a loan of a hundred million dollars. In his nianifeto, Francis Joseph admits his dillicultics, and makes them th ground of an appeal for help from the rest of the German States. Another Italian sovereign is deposed for Aus trian sympathies. The Grand Duchess of Parma is forced to quit her throne, while her peopl j oin the Sardinians in the- struggle for Italliau In dependence." The population of Northern Italy are now united in this cause Piedmont, Tus cany and I'arm.t, ojH'iily ; Lombardy and Venice, ecretly. The long smouldering revolutionary fires in the latter will not improbably break out ere lontr. afresh. The States of the Church and Naples will find it difficult to resist the same in fectinn. The other European Powers are, as yet, spec tators otdv. Hut all are armiug. The Kngli-h are strengthening their Navy, the Prussians con solidating their Army, the Germans enrolling their battalions, and the Czar marshalling his myr iads. All evidently expect to become involved in the strife, though they do not yet know when, or where, or how. F.ven the Swiss, whose only desire is to maintain independence and neutrali ty, arc getting ready for the field. Spain, doubtless with an eye to the protection of Cuba, is getting out a tleet of gun boats. The Sultan, who has apparently but little to gain or lose in thin battle between Christians, is evidently ap prehensive of danger, and is preparing for it. The Foreign News from this time forth will be looked for with intense interest. Any hour may bring us more of it. Loal Sapoleou'a AddrcM. Napoleon sent to the Corps Legislatif on the 3d, the following : " Austria, by ordering the entering of her ar my into the territories of Sardinia, our ally, has declaired war against us. She thus violates trea ties and menaces our frontiers. All the great Powers have protested against this act of ag gression. riedmont, having accepted the con ditions, one asks what can be the reason of this sudden invasion It is because Austria has driv en matters to such an extremity, that her domin Ions must either extend to the Alps, or Italy must be free to the shores of the Adriatic, for eTery corner of Italy which remains independent endangers the power of Austria. Hitherto mod eration has been the rule of my conduct, but now energy becomes my first duty. France must now to arms and resolut ely tell Kurope, I wish not for conuueb " ' lto.;..i maintain my national and traditional policy. I observe treaties on condition that they are not violated against m. I respect territories and the rights of neutral powers, but I boldly avow my sympathies with a people whose history is mingled with oar own and who now groan under foreign oppression. France has shown her ha tred of anarchy. Iler will was to give me pow er sufficiently strong to reduce into subjection the abettors of disorder and the incorrigible members of old factions, who are incessantly seen concluding compacts with our enemies, but she has not for that purpose abandoned her civ ilizing character. Iler natural allies have always been those who desire the amelioration of the human race, and when she draws the sword it is not to govern, but to free. Tho object then of this war is to restore Italy to herself. Not to impose upon her a change of masters, and we shall then have upon our frontier a friendly peo ple who will owe to us their independence. We do not enter Italy to foment disorder, or to disturb the power of our Holy Father, whom we replaced upon his throne, but to remove from him this foreign pressure which burdens the whole Peninsula, and to help to establish order there based upon lawful satisfied interests. In fine, then, we enter this classic ground, rendered illus trious by so many victories, to seek the footsteps or our fathers. God grant that we may be wor thy of them. "I am about to place myself at the head of the army. I leave to France the Empress and my sou, seconded by the experience and the enlihgt- nment of the Emperor's last surviving brother. She will understand how to show herself worthy I the grandeur of her mission. I confide them to the valor of the army which remains in France to keep watch upon our frontier and to euard our homes. I confide them to the patriotism of tne ationaI Guard. I confide them, in a word, to the entire people, who will encircle them with tUt affection and devoteness of which I daily re ceive so many proofs. Courage then, and union. Our country is again about to show to the world that she has not degenerated. Providence will bless our efforts, for that cause is holy in the eyes of God which rests on justice, humanity, love of country and independence." Death or am I.idiasa Lawter. The Hon. Jeeeph H. Mather, a prominent member of the Bar of Elkhart Co., Indiana, died a few days tince at Goshen, in that State. He was a mem ber of the last Constitutional Convention of In dian, being elected from a district at that time V&1 opposed to him in politics. He also serv. d term as Judge of the Common Pleas. The Monroe Doctrine, In a Parisian Disguise. The Paris Constitutional of April 11th thinks the Presidential message, to insinuate that the Monroe doctrine is little to be feared, since it is difficult for the President to obtain from Congress even the means of defending the honor of tho United States abroad and their national interests. Alter stating that the Senate refused to grant an increase of the army to act against the Mormons, and that it required 5 years to organize an expe dition against Paraguay,where the American flag Lad been insulted, our French contemporary re marks that France and England have already ob tained reparation from Mexico, while the great American Republic has not as yet been able to obtain justice for its citizens who were outraged there. Is it not humiliating, says the Conttitu tionel, for that proud people, who haughtily of fer to buy Cuba, to see themselves distanced by Spain herself in a question of national honor, and with a Power so feeble as Mexico 5" We are right, then, in saying that the Monroo doctrine, which promises the whole American continent to the citlens of the Republic, is not so terrible as it has been represented. It is dif ficult to perceive how the United States can ap- nlv it. notwithstanding their avowed tendecics. It'is not to be nresumed that thev want to alter their Constitution, in order to invest the Presi- dent with the power of making war. Nor will Congress, contrary to its traditional distrust, be willing to grant to the President an increase of the Federal forces, and tho authority to use them abroad. If neither of these things can be done, we do not perceive how the Republic can think of putting into practice the Monroe doctrine, un less it be bv the aid of the almiirhtv dollar sn l the chivalry of filibusters. Tlie v Comet. We observe that James C. Watson, of Ann Arlor, l.ns written to the Detroit papers, an ac count of the comet which he discovered on the 'J.'id ult., in the constellation Lynx. Mr. W. says it will not be visible to the nuked eye, but may readily be seen by means of a gocd spy-glass. From observations and calculations, .Mr. W. Is satisfied that the comet is moving from the ea-t towards the sun. Its geocentric distance is now sixty-six millions of miles, and its heliocentric distance eighty-eight millions Mven hundred and seventy thousand miles. At noon on the Hyth of May, the date of its nearest approach to the sun, it will be distant from the earth ninety-nine million" three hundred thousand miles; and its distance from the sun, at the same epoch wih be only nineteen millions eight hundred thousand miles. Its brilliancy w ill then be tn times great er than at the present time, but owing to its close pioximity to the sun, it Mill not be visible. The perihelion of the orbit, it will be perceived, lies within the orbit of Mercury, but, on account of its great inclination to the plane of the eclip tic, amounting to nearly eighty -fight degrees, the comet can never conic io collision with any of the planets in cae it houId ever return. By referenx! to the Catalogue of tin orbits of the comets which have hitherto been observed, it appears that no previous appearance of this comet his ik-cii recorded ; and, since it was visi ble only a few weeks, it will hardly be possible to determine whefher it will ever return again, unless the period of its revolution should not ex ceed four or five hundred yeais. The elements above given suppose the orbit to he a para!oIa, or, which is equivalent, that the period of revo lution is infinite. 'I In I lay of 3ImioMill t. The old South S.-a Company is long since de funct the Ka-t India Company lias followed suit, that American Fur Company, "sfnt Homines umhra" and of the Hudson's Bay Company, so long known, and so wide and sttong in its opera tions, the following passing notice is given by the Albany Keening Journal : "Thi 4 large Corporation which has so long con trolled the Trade with the Indians, on the North western frontier, will be shorn of its ancient pri vileges in that region within the coming month. It is, like its prototype, the East India Company, an institution of the past itiilispensal.de, per haps, in the early stages of commerce but ren dered superfluous and irksome by the growth and development of individual enterprise. The English Government, wisely conforming to popu lar necessities, abrogates the privileges, first of the one, and then of the other, of these corpora tions, which had come down to us almost unal tered since the davs of Kiwr Charles the Second. The Indians of the Northwest will be sufferers probably, by the change. The Bay Company has furnished them with steady and profitable employment as trappers ; has, in some measure. civilized them ; h:is compelled them to peaceful pursuits, and has excluded the temptations and destruction which seem to follow in the wake of unrestrained traffic with white men. Wi'h the opening of the Indian trade toewrybodv, dai ries, quarrels, rum and cheating will probably ensue, as they have among ourown Indian Tribes at the West. The United States, however, will be 1 ugely the gainers by abrogation of the Bay Company's swav.

This brief sentence records the loss of one of the most active business men of our city. Mr. Boswell removed to this place a little over two years since, lrom Henrietta, N. Y., some twelve miles from Rochester, and opened a Boot & Shoe store. By his prompituds and fair dealing he had obtained a Urge trade, while his good con duct and uprightness as a citizen secured him manv friends, and won the esteem of all. Mr. Boswell was a member of the Baptist church and was a consistent chistian. He leaves behind a wife and four children to mourn his loss, as do we all. Rcquietcat in pate. A Slight Ciia.vge. The New Orleans Dtlta, which rendered efficient aid in the election of Mr. Buchanan in 1 85t, now amiably proposes to get up such a demonstration by the Democratic party of all sections of the Union, as will com pel Mr. Buchanan to resign the Presidency am: retire to private life; and that the party then make up a "pony purse" to pay him his salary for the remainder of his term. The Idt savs the ""gStion meets with quite general favor, n1 maliciously adds that it would be "surprised if the feeling in favor of this sensible move sho'd the coming season, assume a shape the imbecile old gentleman can neither well disregard nor fail to gratify. What are twen ty thousand dollars per annum for two years, di vided among tho States of the Union ? Why, the whole sum only amounts to the profit Slidell an ticipates from the Houmas land swindle, and will not reach the profits given a single machine shop in Philadelphia by the Secretary of the Navy, to frecure the election of Florer.co and Philips to the Houso of Representatives, or for some oth er purpose equally honorable and patriotic." Democracy is toe Kbvstose. " When Doc tor ditagrec, who thall decide '" The Douglas an ! anti-Douglas Democrats of Pennsplvania are particularly amiable toward each other of late. For instance, the Stat-.? S'ntltfl. a Democratic Anti-Lecompton paper published at Harrisbur uses the following mild langunge toward the President.

To which the Philadelphia Pennnyh-arnan retorts by calling Messrs. Forney and Hickman "Red-mouth Abolitionists, corrupt and rotten at the heart, capable of perpetrating the foulest and blackest crimes, nho I iavo hved all their lives on plunder, stealing from the Treasury of the Government, and when the door was thut against their wholesale stealing, they turn round and alus. the men and party who gave them life." l)u vth or Col. Lkvj Thkaowfli.. Papers from Southern Michigan announce tin? death of Col. Levi Tread well.a prominent citizen of Wheat land, Hillsdale county, who died on the 4thinst, in the TCth vear of his age. Mr. Tread well was bom in Fairfield Co., Connecticut, but removed with his parents to Western New York at an our ly age. While there he held important public positions, both civil and military, being an officer in the war of 1S12. In 140 he removed to his late resilience, where he had become a prominent and esteemed cilien at the time of his decease. He was an elder brother of S. fl.
