',as it is impossible for the Italians to attack tho

himself or one of his lieutenants, witu acorssof

of tbe mountains of the province of Come. If the
diversion-succeeds, and if the Italian tyrol and
I rioul rise, the communications ot the Quauri late

ii.tercepted. 1 can myself state that the popu
lation ot those two districts are hostile to Austria.

suspict, is an attempt of General Ciatd na,
