M. (iirardio'a pamphlet, crotcbetty paradoxical and tui

the mist which envelops the future. The former editor of

It Is Ukewico said that the Emperor haa already bad some
harp altercation with hii cousin, Prince Napoleon, not
only on the speccb mado at Genoa by the latter, baton
the very positive language held by blm to the cabinet at
Turin. ' You have pledged me beyond your Instruction!,

of tho la?t prelected ball at tho Tullerlos. Where
upon his cousin few Into a towering pension, iu><I at 0
, o'clock P. M. a manage came from the Palais Koyal to ?iy
that none of thi Jerome parly would honor the palace
with their company. Tho Emperor doclarod himself so
rut of heart and rpirlts altogether that he, too, could not
face his liege*, and therefore the Empress alone war proient
to do the honoTF. Another version of the atory Is, that the

Great disappointment was of coarse felt at the absence
of the Prinoesa (lothilde. Tha Impression her Imperial

greatest charm?ctood tba blaze of sunlight bettor
than the Empress, for whom the gorgeous salon and tho
midnight chandelier are better suited. Then began to
rave about her Titian hair, her Italian complexion, fair
as a Georgian's and velvety as Ansonia's most favored
child; but further experience has ascertained that the
yourg Princess has really no pretensions whatever to
the palm of beauty beyond her youthfutoess. Her profile
is bad, and her figure is yet a mere angular skeleton.
Tho geueral expression of her features is rather disagreeable,
and her salutation stiff and free from
grace. It appears that she has be on brought
up In the most childlike seclusion, and that
of tho world into which she is thus suddenly
launched Hbe lias not tho remotest conception.

to Interfere ki tbe Italian question, and the certitude, on
tbe other band, that ihe cannot posiibly have Russia on
her tide. BUe must come forward herself with offers of
arrangement; and there is little doubt, at least such ii the
general opinion here, that tbe power will remain undisturbed,
and that the great and dangerous question will be
Anally settled without a conflict.
There is no doubt that the Conference of Paris will soon
meet to settle tbe question of the double election of M.
Causa, although tbe date of that reunion is not yet lixed.
It is supposed it will tako place as soon as FiiadPacha can
arrive in I'aris. It appctrs that Russia. France and Piedmont,
notwithstanding that they maintain tbe'r op nion on

But tho question of the Ji-t still exists, and

of Paris, when tho affair of tho double election
of Mr. Canta will bo examined. The only alternative
which can possibly present itself Is either that tin conference
will recognise tho validity of tho election or they
will annul it. In the first case tho union wull exist, or the
conference will aniiul tho election and add to tho convention
an additional clause. What means havo thoy to impute

tria in moat fortunate, as It gives hoj'.sof a pacific o.r
rarscm'nt of all exiting difficulties. Cert.unly It is not
a problem easy of aolvtion to flud means of ca<ngtlie
military occupation of Italy; yet the problem may be
solved. Tide occupation, It is true, is not 111 contradiction
with tho treaties, but is not ordained by them. Should
every one work to obtain this result wo have not the

Power?not even Austria?can wish to sec continued
longer the presort state of affairs in Central Italy. To
an live this Situation in away that the governments of

m conformity with the in'.eri ?ts of all parties.
Certainly we see every guarantee, iu the discourse of the
Emperor Napoleon, that any advance made by Austria
win be received in Paris on the same conciliating terms
a* it was dictate J. On tho other hand, wo have not the
least doubt that tho Prussian and English governments
will persist n their efforts, as they have already dono, to
conciliate all difficulties, and w ill accept the mission to settle
all Just gi itfs remaining at the same tine In the limits
of the existing treaties. When we cons I iertbc sentiments

therefore, every reason to hope that, seeing the activity

Baron Schieimils, the Minister of Foreign AtUirs, was

an understanding by peaceful ncgoUatioQ. At the uim

Buol tbat though, the Austrian il* i iini n in fjotnbardy an l

botli considerations of justice and s due regard for the

to the best of ber ability. Tb<; Austrian diplomatists wire
rather tiiken aback by this communication, as tfcey bad
been working hard lor the lart six weeks to bring about a
defensive alliance with Prur&ia, uud bad instructed
their organs to assert boldly that su:h an alliance

seemed im lined to demur, esiieclally an they were still in

by the two most friendly of the great I'owerB would bo
to run the risk of complet" isolation. As lung an Austria
coiilined her sell to the defence of her Italiun province,
she lud law, if not justice, on her aide; but by craftily
shifting his point ol attack to her occupation of Central
Italy, Louie Napoleon has deprived her of the vantage
groiind which secured her tho moral support of
England and Prutsia, and rcduuod hor to the n-ccnity
of \ ieidicg?at leant in appcarancc. At the conferences
of 18id, and afterwards, sue luvariably declined to enter
into any discussion of the "Italian question,'' declaring
that no foreign l ower had a right to meddle with it, and
that the governments of the l'enlDBili, lucludiag Austria
