Tbe Austrian army has been greatly Increased since
1848, and part culariy in officers. It is not astonishing
that they rnouid desire war. But the old and matured
generals are far Irom feeling assured as to military successes.
There are not many generals of distinction. It
Is difficult to name others beside Bess, Wlmpren and
8cb)ick, as commanders of corps, and Benedek and one or
two otters as generals of division. General Gynlai, Governor
of Lombardy, has as seldom smelt powder as tbe
General Count Grunne, the ail-powetful favorite of tbe
Emperor, and whose general unpopularity rebounds on
his master even among military men.
Beyond several otber causes of discontent, there are
private ones peculiar to the Viennese citizens. Accustomed
to live, so to speak, on a footing of familiarity with their
sovereign, and to meet every day the Papa Franzl
in the public gardens and promenades dressed as other
people, without etiquette or paiapbernails, tbe Viennese
are now frown st the aspect of an Emperor always in uniform,
stiff and haughty. The Influence of the ultramontane
coterie, secretly directed by a former liberal
advocate, now Baron de Bach, the silent advances of this
coterie since the establishment of tbe concordat, has profoundly
ulcerated nearly all classes of tbe population.
Religious intolerance is especially paramount at this
very moment when they implore the succor of Protestant
countries like England and- Prussia. They have recently
piarou uunwiei tu toe way 01 cue promotion or rroutUDl
subalterns; they have refused, in certain provinces of the I
empire, civil employment to Jews; burial is even denied to
Protestants in Catholic cemeteries, and here there are no
Protestant cemeteries. An ancient law, fallen into
^teuetude, and wnich forbade the Jews to have Christian
servants, is about to be again put in force. To represents- j
lions made on lh<B subject by the Israelites in Vienna, j
they have replied by insinuating that tbcy bad better
keep quiet, or the decreo in question may be put in force
in Prague and Pesth.
In euch a state of sffairs a foreign war cannot be popular.
Add to so many other causes certain apprehensions?
tbe instinctive dread of the population with regard to
Ruseia?this spectre of Banquo rising in every revel to
banish joy and confidence. Do not, then, believe the
declamations of the press which. In Vienna, is not like
that of London or Paris. The Viennese subscribe to a
jour eat and read it occasionally to see the quotations at
tbe Bourse, the pieces given at the theatre, he.: as to the
lead ng articles, tbey have but UUle Interest for these
people. There is, moreover, no prophet In this country.
How can we lock for the expression of public opinion In
tbe Prate of k. Zsog, wbo formerly sold little Viennese
cakes at Paris, and who now distributes tarta even less
digestible to 23,000 subscribers? Is it in the Oat Deuitche
Put of tbe fiery M. Kuranda, a Prague Jew, and which
Count Buol baa chosen as hia organ? Is it in the lncapa
mo f rtmaenmau, ooitea ny toe r> rower or toe great poot
Heine, a journal which baa 30,COO subscriber* in spice of
ite stupidity, become proverbial? The only journalist of
taleot in Vienna is X- Warecs, editor of Lloyd during the
Ea-tern war, who since * * * but he was then the
z.-alius admirer of tho French government.
as it is strictly forbidden to the journals to mention
anything respecting the movements of the troops, we
buve only an Imperfect knov'edge of the foroe or the
aimy concentrated in Lombardy. I know from undoubted
sources that as soon as the Second corps and tbe Grenadier
companies combined shall bays entered Italy, there
will be 220 ,'K 0 to 230,000 men.
The state of industry is deplorable. Tbe factories
starve; at Prague and Brunn, manufacturing towns, several
failures are expected. Tbe products of Austrian man
ufacturere, w< <so principal outlets were Lombardy, Turkey
gnu the Hanubtan Principalities, have bad but little
sale for tome time past, owing to tbe political condition
of tbeso cov ouub, brought about in a great measure by
Austria herself. Industry makes no progress in Austria,
tbanks to the old monopolies of corporations, he., which
arc so obstacle to free competition.
The Vit uijcte revenge themselves by sarcasms, and tho
B'nncr W>t:r (Virnca witticisms) are not wanting in
reasoning, but are almost always untranslateable.
A vrry t"gh personage frequents a great deal the circus
of Reuz. the famous eqwilibrute and horse-tamer, and
eboeo daughter, Xdlle. Catherine or Cathy Reuz, is a
pretty and bkiitui pupil This has given rise to an atrocious
pun respecting tho relative interest of the government
in tbe Cathy-reuz and Coufe reuz. Lord Cowley,
giving a toast to tbe army, said, " May God preserve
(erhalte, signify irg also in German to nourish) the Austrian
army." Tbe Minister of Finance replied, " May
God do so; for, as for me, I am no longer in & state to
do it"
The retirement of colonel O'Donnell,aide-de-camp to the
Fmperor, and who saved him from assassination at
Lib. ny, has greatly surprised the public. Indisposition is
given as tbe cause of his retirement; but K is asserted,
nn thn nthflr hand. that tha fklton nnlnnal haa for an onamo
ibe all powe< hi Count Gruuns, and that he haa fallen
from power for endeavoring to enlighten his master as to
bis false foreign and Internal policy. Count Grunne passes
for a first rate sportsman and great connoisseur of horses.
Baron Bruck, the skilful Minister of Finance, has hitheto
raved Austria from bankruptcy. Ike financial future
s gloomy in the extreme; the remlnisoenoes of repeated
bankruptcies during the wars of the empire terrify all
Tht War in Enrspe.
The last news firem Europe leaving hat little room for
doubting the opening of a mighty struggle on the tented
field for Italian independence, a very interesting meeting
of the influential Italian residents in this city was held
on Friday evening at the house ef Slgnor Gajani, in
Eleventh street. The convertaXcme was confined wholly
to the consideration of the claims which Italy at home had
upon her sons and friends abroad. Instead of the wrangling
which too often characterises the reunions of foreign
petriete, the Italian amenably on Friday evening was remarkably
harmonious. The love of home and lis endearments
was evidently uppermost; and though there were
gentlemen present from all the States of tost delicious yet
outraged ' garden of Europe," there was no local preferences
sticking out here and there. It was Italy free
aad undivided that they sought, and free and undivided
in sentiment they met to deviio the conoert of action now
required of them.
Tbo speakers were as markedly unanimous In their hostility
to Austria as they were united In their anxiety for
the welfare of tbelr oommon country, and to give tangible j
shape to tbeir aen&neau a subscription was opened to 1
aid tbo national movement. It was decided that their
dollars should go "so assist the families ef the soldiers
catlea to fight for indepeDUenoe." Considerable sums to
ibw and were immediately contribute!. Tnis subscription

Sax Francisco, April 20,1860.
The tenth Legislature of the State of California adjourned
yesterday at noon, after a session of over three months.
It was not remarkable for any great talent among members,
nor would it in pertonnti or labors compare Cavora- t
bly with like bodies that have assembled at Sacramento 1
during the past three years. There was much special
legislation and very little of a general character. Below
are enumerated a fe# of the prominent measures that became
gen era i. walker.
General William Walker remains still in this city, keeping
himself very secluded. There are many surmises as
to his future movements. Some think he proposes an- |
other exDedition to Nicaragua, others that he Intends eoioar !
to Sonora. All, however, agree that he purposes going
somewhere In the character of chief of a hand of adventurers.
General Walker Is nevor seen in the streets; not
so Colonel Bruno Natzmer, who, with tho exterior of a
bold soldier, airs himself often on Montgomery street. I
bad a conversation with the gallant Colonel last evening,
and learned from him that he recently passed several
months on a tour through Mexico, Including a trip through
Sonera. He does not consider the country worth much.
There is a dearth of water and food in the land, and it

Messrs. Broderick, Gwin, Denver and McKibnen arrived
here by the last steamer and immediately proceed
ed to Sacramento, where they now are staying. The object
of tho visit of these gentlemen to the capital la to hold
counsel with their friends as to the approaching election,
at which a Governor and members of Congress are to be
chosen. The division in the ranks of the democracy,
dating back to the Kansas question and Mr. Douglas'
course thereon, has not been healed, and the same forces
will battle at the election in September that fought lost
year. The offices to be filled are of much importance, and
exertions of the most strenuous nature will be made to
achieve success. It Is said that Mr. Broderick intends to
stump the State, and call all the opponents of Mj> Buchanan's
administration to support the ticket to be nominated
by the Douglas tide of the house. Mr. McKibben
expects to receive a nomination for Congress. He was
elected last year; bnt In consequence of the Legislature
having postponed the time for holding the election he
will not trust to this fact, but ran again. There are numerous
candidates for all the offices to be filled. For Governor
Mr. Welter seeks a re-nomination, and Messrs. Latham,
Nugent and Denver are also understood to be candidates.
The strongest of the four at present appears to
be Wellcr. but a few months will certainly effect changes.
Denver's friends proclaim him to be an aspirant for Gubernatorial
honors, and Latham, a young and energetic
man, is not idle.
It is probable the contest in the convention win be between
Weller and Nugent. The adherents of Douglas and
isrocenck will undoubtedly nominate their stroogdfit men,
and with the aeeiitance of local isauos and other ctrcumatancea
poll a much larger rote than they did in 1868.
The approaching election, it Is believed, will decide who la
to be Mr. 6wmr? successor in the Senate. Mr. Gwin is by
no means a favorite bare. He ia known to be a man of
energy and talent, but, Justly or uDjoatly, it is thought he
employs those qualities, not for the benefit of California,
bat to subserve his own personal ends.

Governor Bougies baa added another to hie numerous
catalogue of mistakes. There is published at Victoria a
paper called the Briluh Colonist, ably edited, and which
criticises with freedom and severtty the acts of the colonial
authorities. Governor Douglas himself is not spared.
His official conduct Is reviewed, and in the opinions of the
CoUmitt it is such sa to show him wanting in capacity
and a spirit of Justice in the administration
of affairs. From the establishment of the
Journal this independent course has been followed
by it, and of course the auger and hostilities
f the Executive has been aroused. Tee Colonist has declared
over and over again that Governor Douglas Is
unfitted by character and antecedents to govern a colony
of enlightened Brittah subjects, and, speaking in the name
of tbe people, calls on the home government to remove
him and ?opotnt a proper peraon in hia place. It is said
also tbat bis conduct towards Americans has been unjust
and tinctured with s feeling of h;;tred which is exhibited
on every occasion, and which is prejudicial to the best interetts
or the new colonies.
On tbe first of this month a proclamation appeared on
tbe Government House at Victoria, sigued by Governor

Tbo opening week of the pact fortnight was character
ired by extreme dullness in all branenrs of trade an 1 the
continuance of low prices. For many leading staples, and.
Is fact, for almost any goods, it was difficult to get i figure
named by buyers, leaving Importers but the altero?..iceo'
holding on to stocks for which there was no market. Arrivals
from domestic Atlantic and foreign ports continent
to corns in freely, which, in addition to those oocurrng
throughout the latter part of March, increased Use already
heavy stocks of merchandise to an extent that has not
been experienced f' r several years. '
The weather bavirg been unfavorably cold during the
beginning of the fortnight.tbe facilities of transportation m
the interior Improved onlv slightly, and there was but a
partial revival of trade, affording city jonbers one or tarn
days' business, and again relapsing to inactivity throughout
the past week there has boon, I o sever, a good, steady,
though by no means a heavy demand. The weather has become
seasonably warm, while a manifest tmprovem-ut is
to be noted in the receipts of dust from our own mines and
from those of British Columbia, accompanied by more
liberal orders for goods. The spring trad* maybicm
sidcred to bave fairly commenced, but whatever its extent
In the future, It has as yel merely revived the market
from its late totally nominal eooditloa, and estib
fished some price for goods that, lor a period had b< en i
altogether unsaleable?leaving our quotations generally
somewhat within tboae noted for the last steamer, and
which were then referred to as nominal.
The transactions from first hands, daring the fortnight,
have been limited, the jobbers having as yet had little
occasion to enter the market to replenish their supplies
With the continuance of the present favorable features,
we shall look to see more activity prevail among im
porters, but It will require a consnmitton unexampled la I
onr experience of this market to effect a reduction of ore. I
sent heavy stocks against the large arrivals that are yoi
to occur of goods already advised as In transit from all
points of supply, while the course pursued by shippers m
despatching cargo after cargo to a market that, were it
bare ef stocks at the present moment, would still bo In
receipt of supplies by constant arrivals to the extent of ite
current requirements, undeniably Indicates that a rally In
prices beyond the point that will cover oost and charges
is an event that ordinary foresight can have little expectation
of realising.

fifeh there has been little change: both mackerel and col
are slow of sale at last quotations. Most sty les of French
goods are very dull, with light sales. In nearly all goods
classed under the head of fruits, sauces, fro , there baa
been more or less decline under exc.-saive stocks. Gunny
