Dksit.iiatk cases sometimes de mand desperate remedies, but then sometimes too theso desperate remedies turn out dosp'crato ruins; Such I think was tho caso with "that letter." 1 John imagined himself in a desperate predicament, and so ho was. Ho had Jiiadoadesperato throw; ho had staked all of honor or principlo supposed to havo been left him, in that last dio; lie hoped to retain tho ofllco oven though honor bright and principlo wero gone Ho trusted-, if ho could only keep tho teething llcsh-pot over which his soul gloated, that ho would bo able to dupo his followers, and make them heliovo ho was still lighting for principle. Rut tho pot Hko a fairy phantom, takes wings'and iiies away. In its placo"that letter" appears; his bootless villainy stare's him In th'6 face Is about to bo ex ited tho. muttorings of a great storm hums in his ears tho caso Is- desperate so it is. 'What is ho to do? Some thing or somebody said,' "Publish that letter yourself, take tlmo by tho fore lock, mako your own comments." In nu unguarded moment ho resolves upon tho desperate remedy: but whatamis- tako! tliOj, letter finds tho light first through tho columns of his own organ, 'i'hero is no longer any denying or ovud ing it. There it is, " verbatim el litera tim." Ho forgot that thus ho would bear testimony to the truthfulness of tho Columbian, whero it also appeared " verbatim el literatim," without addi tion or multiplication, and so fix upon himself indelibly tho foul stigma. If It had been published in tho Columman alono his particular friends would never have seen It, or, seeing it, would never liavo believed It possiblo for tho man who lovcd'prlnciplo and despised ofllco to stoop so low for this Independent, free, whlto man to sell not only himself, but tho whole " vigorous Union organi zation" to tho Administration. P. John, then, did writo " that letter ;" ho says ho did. Who can deny or doubt his authority In this caso? And wo may bo allowed to ask, who that has a shred of conscience left can find any apology for such a letter? It is vain for him to say it was an offer to exert lijm-olf on behalf of his party. It was an offer, as ho understood It then, and confe-os-ho does now, to suborn that party ton man, to "mako It a twit," and what for? "Why to " triumphant sustain the Ad ministration." It Is ubsurd to say It was boforo tho policy Of tlio Administration was developed. That polity right or wrong had been avowed and proclaim t'd. Tho Frecduien's Rumui IHU had been vetoed; tho speech of tho twenty second of February had been madoj other paper., had tcnio out and dcuounc- ed both these and tho President. Hut P. John this man of unflinching Integ rity of unyielding principle this Rati leal Republican, as ho would havo us eoii"iderhlm,qulcllysonds" that letter" to tho Secretary of tho Treasury, and oilers to barter nwny " our vigorous Union organization" In tho Thirteenth District, on what condition V Not a word about principle, or u reservation as to tho extent to which tho Administration might go In tho space of seven months not a word. It wusaposltlvopromlso wherever " tho Administration" should go, tho vigor of tho Union organization should triumphantly go with It. It was an elaborate sale tho price to bo paid, retain ino in of lice. No wonder Presi dent Johnson despised and spurned such truckling: How strange that some staunch Republicans should still almost think that this man of such easy virtue is the party I MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT. 2b the Jfouse qf J'eprcxentativcs : The following Joint resolution restor- Ing Tennessee to her relations to tho Union was last evening presented for my approval : Wiip.iikas. In tho year lfiOl the trov- ernmentof the Ktato of Tennesseo was seized upon and taken possession of by persons in Hostility totno united mutes, and the inhabhantsof saidState, In nur- suancoofannct of Congress, declared tobo mastiuo oi insurrection against too unit ed States: and Wur.it eah the people of said Rtatcdld, 41. . i. .... 1 .1 IV.

I.... ..... iOW'7, lJ tl llllU l'llUlllll Villi', lllttfj.l illlll ratify a constitution of government Whereby slavery was abolished, ond all ordinances and laws of secession and debts contracted under tho same were declared void ; and Wiikiikah a Stato government has been organized under said constitution which lias ratified tho amendment to tho Constitution of tho United States abolishing slavery, also tho amendment proposed by tho Thirty-ninth Congress, and has done other acts proclaiming and denoting loyalty; therefore bo it. Jlesolved, by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress aeinbled. That tho Stato of Tennesseo is hereby restor ed to her former political relation to tho Union, and is again entitled to bo rep resented oy senators and Jieprescntu tives in Congress. Tho prcamblo pimply consists of statements, some of which aro assumed, while tho resolution is merely a dccla- ratlonof opinion. Itcomprises no leglss latlon, nor does it confer any power which is binding upon tho respective Houses, tho Executive, or the States. It does not admit to their seats in Con gross tlio Senators and Representatives from tho Stato of Tennessee, for not withstanding tho passage of the resolu tion, each House, in tlioexerclso of the constitutional right to judge for itself of tho elections, returns, and qualifications of its members, may, at Its discretion, admit them or continue to exclude them. If a joint resolution of this character wero necessary and binding as a condi tion precedent to tho admission of mem bers of Congress, it would happen in tho event of a veto by the Executive that Senators and Representatives could only bo admitted into tlio halls of legislation by a two thirds vote of each of tho two Houses. Among other reasons recited in the preamble for tlio declarations contained in tho resolution is tlio ratification by tho Stato government of Tennessee of tho amendment to tho Constitution of tho United States abolishing slavery, ond nlsothe amendment proposed by tlieThirty-ninth Congress. If, as Is aNo declared in tho preamble, .-aid State government can only bo restored to its former political relations in tlio Union by the consent of the law-making power of tho United Slates, it would really seem to follow that tho Joint resolution which at this late day lias received tho sanction of Congress should havo been passed, approved, and placed on tho statute books before any amendment to tho Constitution was submitted to tlio Legislature of Tenncsseofor its ratifica tion. Otherwise tho inference Is plainly deduciblo that while In the opinion of tho Congress tho people of a Stato may bo too strongly disloyal to boentitled to representation, they may noverthelosss. during tho suspension of their former proper practical relations to tho Union. havo an equally potent voico with other and loyal Stale;) in propositions toumend tho Constitution upon which so essen tially depend tho stability, prosperity, and very existence of tho nation. A brief roferenco to my annual mes sage of tho fourth of December last will show- the steps taken by tho Executive for thorestoratlon to their constitutional relations to tho Union of the States that had been affected by the Rebellion. Upon tho cessation of active hostilities provisional governors wero appointed, conventions called, and Governors elect ed by tho people, Legislatures assem bled, and Senators and Representatives chosen to tho Congress of tho United States. At tho snmo tlmo the courts of tho United States wero reopened, the blockado removed, tho custom-houses re-established, and postal relations re sumed. Tho amendment to tho Constitution abolishing slavery forever within tho limits of tho country was alsosubmllted to tho States, and they wero thus Invited to and did participate in its ratiilcatlon, thus exercising tho highest functions pertaining to a State. In addition, nearly all of these States through their conventions and Legislatures had adopt ed and ratified constitutions of govern ment whereby slavery was abolished, and all ordlnancesuiid laws of secession, and debts contracted under tho same, wero declared void, so far as the politi cal existence of tho States and their re lations to tho Federal Government had been fully and completely recognized and acknowledged by tho Executive De partment of tho Government, and the completion oi tho work of restoration, which had progressed so favorably, was submitted to Congress, upon which de volved all questions appertaining to the admission to their seats of tho senators and representatives chosen from the States who.o people had engaged lu tho rebellion. All those steps had been taken when on tho fourth day of Decem ber, ISM, tho Thirty-ninth Congress as sembled. Nearly eight months have elapsed since that time, and no oilier plan of restoration having been propos ed by Congress for tho measures Institu ted by the Executive, It Is now declared In the Joint resolution submitted for my approval : That tho Stato of Tennesseo Is hereby restored to her former proper, practical reunions to too union, ami is again en titled to bo represented by Senators and representative In Congress. Thus nfter tho lapse of nearly eight months Congress prepares to pavo tho way to the admission and to representa tion of one of tlio eleven States whose people arrayed themselves in rebellion against tho constituted authority of tho Federal Government. Earnestly desiring to removo every cause of further delay, whether real or Imaginary, on the part of Congress, to tho admission to seats of loyal Senators and Representatives from tho Stato of Tennessee, I have, notwithstanding the anomalous character of the proceedings, afllxed my signature to tho resolution. My approval, howover, Is not to bo con strued as an acknowledgment of the right of Congress to pass laws prelimi nary to the admission of duly qualified Representatives from any of'theSttvtcs; neither is Jt to bo considered as commit ting me to all the statements made in tho preamble, some of which are, In my opinion, without foundation in fact ; es pecially tho statement that tho State of Tennessee has ratlllod tho amendment to the Constitution of tho United States. No official notice of such ratification has been received by the Executive or filed in tho Department of Slate. On thoeontrury, unofllclal information from most reliable sources Induces the belief that the amendment has not yet been constitutionally sanctioned by tho Legis lature of Tennessee. The right of each house, under tho Constitution, to judge of the elections, returns, quallllcations of Its own members Is undoubted, and my approval or disapproval of the reso lution could not in tho slightest degree increase or diminish tho authority In this respect conferred upon the two branches of Congress. In conclusion, 1 cannot too earnestly re peat my recommendation for the admis sion of Tennesseo and all other States to a fair and equal participation in nation al legislation when they present them selves In the pereonsof loyalSenatorsand Representatives who can comply with all the requirements of tlio Constitution and tho laws. Ry this means harmony and reconciliation will bo effected, the practical relations of all thoStatestotho Federal Government re-established, and tho work of restoration, inaugurated upon the termination of tho war, suc cessfully completed.

Tin: statement telegraphed to some of the Northern papers that Vallandig- ham, Rright, and Faulkner aro here to advise tho President in regard to Cabi net appointments, I am authorized to say, is purely gratuitous. Theso gentle men are here, In connection with many others from various parts of tho Union, solely to use what inlluenco they may possess to secure appointments for their friends in their respective localities. Senor Romero states that ho has posi tive inTormation that troops nre still being dispatched to Mexico by Napo leon. Tho Navy Department is in receipt of a letter from Captain Fox, dated Paris, July third. Tho health of himself and crow was excellent. Ho had an inter view with tho Emperor Napoleon a day or two before, lasting over three quar ters of an hour, in which tho conversa tion took a wldo but satisfactory range, Tho Emperor is reported to havo been in a conversational mood, hut unfortu nately, much of tho conversation is con sidered contraband by tho Department Captain Fox would havo been at St. Pe tersburg before this but for tho Emper or's absence. Ho has expressed such a desire to seo tho famous iron-clad that Captain Fox has timed his arrival to suit tho Emperor's convenience. Tho Pay Department has commenced paying tho three months' extra compen sation to tho officers who remained in tho service until tho termination of tlio war. Tho new Orphan Asylum on Four teenth Street, about a mllo and a half from the Executive Mansion, has been leased for threo yearn for tho use of tho Slate Department, or until a now struc ture can ho erected for its accommoda tion. Tho removal will tako placo In Uctober. Genoral Rousseau received tho repri mand of tho Speaker on Saturday, ac cording to tho previous Judgment of tho JIou-o in tho Grluiiell all'alr, but not un til after a disroputublo two hours' strug gle upon a hundred points or order growing out of two things, viz: tho speech which tho lloiiso permitted Gen eral Rousseau to mako and his resigna tion, which ho sent to tho Speaker's desk prior to tho reprimand. Judge hpaiding otiored a resolution that in yiow of tho resignation General Rous seau bo discharged from custody, and the latter announced his willingness to receive the reprimand in his private ca pacity, but Insisted that his resignation relieved film from punishment as a Reii resentatlve. Tho House, howover, re- lused to entertain Spalding's resolution, and refu.-ed to accept tho resignation, Insisting upon tho reprimand, which tho Speaker administered. Its brevity and good taste wero highly commended on all sides. General Roiisseiui considers Ills resignation as having taken effect, and that ho is no longer a member of tho House. a Tlio now Internal Revenue Law regu lating tho mamtfacturo of distilled spir its goes Into effect on tho first of Septem ber, and tho Government expresses its intention of seizins upon tho tirst promi nent eases of violation, for tho purpose of testing Its provisions to tho fullest extent. Tho Committee on Foreign Affairs of tho House hnvo completed an elaborate report on tho subject of tho neutrality laws, and will, It Is understood, recom mend a thorough revision of tlio stat utes affecting our neutral relations with other Governments. The Judiciary Commlttco of the Sen ate have agreed to report favorably upon the nomination of Mr. Stanbury lor tho position of Attorney-General. Mr. Randall's nomination still hangs fire. It would not bo surprising If he was simply left unconfirmed without being rejected. Tho Stato Department has been advis ed that tho following Fenian prisoners In Ireland have been released on condi tion of their returning Immediately to tho United States: Daniel J. Muyhens, Colonel Rurke, Rernard MeDermot, Ed ward Morloy, and Kerwan. General O. O. Howard, whllo riding down the Avenue, on Saturday morn Ing, camo very nearly meeting with a seri ous accident. Tho coupling-polo of his carriage broke. The front wheels be coming detached from tho body of tho carriage, tho horses became frightened, the driver was thrown from his seat, and tho General dashed violently over the driver's seat against the dashboard. Having only ono arm, he could not break his fall, but fortunately was but slightly injured. Tho driver was con siderably bruised, and tho horses wero stopped with tho trailing wheels and undergear of tho carriage, before they had proceeded far. Tho cscapo from a frightful disaster was miraculous. In tho House on Monday afternoon Judge Trimble moved that tho creden tials of Colonel Taylor and Messrs. Left wich and Cooper, Representatives elect from tho State of Tennessee, be referred to the Commlttco on Elections, and tho-e gentlemen admitted at once to tho floor of tho House. The Constitution ex pressly mado provisions to the effect that each House was to judge for Itself as to tho qualifications, returns, etc., of us members; and no concurrent resolu tionnothing less than a constitutional nniendment could abrogate or curtail that power. The Sneaker, however, de cided that the resolution binding both Houses to decide conjointly as to the ad mission of the Into Rebel States to Con gress was binding. An appeal was mode totlioHouse.biitthorulingofthoSpeak er was maintained. Shortly nfterward the resolution admitting Tennessee, with tho amendments of tho Senate, was brought up. Scarcely any discussion oc cuired, and in half an hour tho House had declared its assent in tlio amend ments by a majority of ninety-two to twenty-five, and tho admission of Ten nessee had beeomo an accomplished fact. Tho galleries were almost empty, and probably from the result having been so sanguinely anticipated, but littlo sensa tion was created by tho announcement of tlio final pass-age of the measure. In accordance with his ownjudgment and tlio advico of friends, General hicklcs last week declined tho appoint ment to tho Hague, and the name-of General John A. Dix was sent to tho Senate on Tuesday for that placo. Sickles may now be considered a candidato for Gubernatorial honors. The President on Monday signed the bill reorganizing tho Supremo Court. This actabolishes tho heretofore existing vacancy, and provides that as fast as va cancies occur hereafter, either by vacan cy or resignation, the vacancies shall ex pire simultaneously, until tho number of judges on tho bench is reduced to six. The House did considerable business on Monday night, passing eight or ten bills, tho most important of which was tho Senato bill regulating tho election of United States Senators. It abolishes Joint conventions, and provides that all voting shall bo viva voce, Tho imme diate effect of the bill is intended to re movo tho present dead-lock in tho New Jersey Legislature. Judgo Curtis has written a long let ter to J udgo In-owning, of Philadelphia advocating tho Philadelphia National if -if . . . . .VU...I.I.UWII, ti jKi.il vuuuiuiiLV) mil.-; j took to this Convention with bono that it will do much to help onward this in stinetlvo deslro of tho peoplo of tho United States for union and harmony and peaco ; that it will assert stronirlv and clearly those principles which aro tho foundations of our Government, that It will exhibit tho connection be-' tween their violation and tho present distracted condition of our country ; that it win reuuuo tho violence of partvsnlr it, and especially or that splrltofhatred which is as inconsistent with tho true Iovo or our country as it is with trim love or our brethren; and that It will do much to convince tho peoplo of tho Uni ted States that they must act soon is tho wisest way, or suffer evils which thoy and their posterity will long deplore. Tho 'Tribune cono?pondent having as serted several times that Vallandlgham Is hero urging tho President to appoint John 11. "Wells Secretary of "War, It has become proper to state, as I do on tho best authority, that Mr. Vallandlgham has not succeeded In obtaining an inter view with tho President, nor is lto like ly to do so. Tho President has neither sympathy with nor respect for men of -Mr. Vallandlgham's antecedents, and tho Tribune'n persistent efforts to glvo them pronilnenco in connection with tho President aro only in pursuance of its systematic misrepresentations. NEW ATTORNEY-GENERAL. Tho President uomlnaled tothoSenato Henry Staiisbury, of Kentucky, to bo Attorney-General of tho United Stales. In placo of Mr. Speed, resigned. Tho .-senate, in execullvo session, referred tho nomination to thoConimittceoii tho Judiciary. Henry Stansbury was born at Zanesvllle, Ohio; graduated at tho Ohio University, nt Athens, Ohio; was admitted to tho bar In 1S2I, nnd com menced practleout Lancaster, Ohio, soon after, aud Is at present about sixty years of age. Ho studied law seven years be- fore commencing to practise, und took higher rank among Jurists at the outset than any lawyer of the present genera tion. Ho was Attorney-General of Ohio under a portion of tho administrations of Gov. Hartley and Rebb, from about 1815 to 1813, and resumed his profession In Columbus, Ohio, until 1851, and then moved to Cincinnati, whero he has been ever since, though nominally residing In Covington, Kentucky. In politics ho was first a Whig, then a Republican, and finally a staunch member of the Union party that elected Mr. Lincoln nnd Mr. Johnson to tho platform of which hestlll adheres. Ho Is certainly ono of the most accomplished lawyers In tho United States. Ho has been confirmed by the Senate. ADMISSION OF TENNESSEE. Tin: vote In the House of Representa tives for tho admission of tho Stato of Tenness4oshowed an overwhelming majority of one hundred and twenty five yeas to twelve nays, tho leader of tho Radicals, Thad. Stevens, having been compelled to vote In favor of the resolution, after using nil his influ ence to resist It. Tho admission of Representatives from Tennessee to Con gress upon the ground that the State Legislature adopted tho Constitutional Amendment as Governor Rrownlow announced in his vulgar and offensive dispatch to Mr. Stanton would leave tho door open for all the Southern States to regain their position in Congress, and thereby a place in tho Union, for there is nothing to prevent them from adopt ing the amendment, just as tho Legis lature or Tennesseo has done. Rut at tho same time, while the other Southern States will most probably follow thocx nmplo of Tennessee, which was ns much a Rebel State as any of them, it does not follow that tho Northern States will adopt the Constitutional Amendment indeed it is pretty certain that they will not so that it may not beeomo an amendment to thoCoiistltutlon after all, falling to receive tho necessary vote of tho Legislatures. Thus it is clear that the Radicals In tho Houxe of Representatives have been caught in their own trap. "While thev havo been laboring for tho past seven months or moro to opposo tho Presi dent's policy by keeping tho South em States out of tho Union, they have virtually endorsed Mr. Johnson's views by voting for the admission of Tennessee, and havo written themselves down blockheads by that fact. They have un wittingly surrendered every point for which they havo been contending. For Instance : this Radical majority in Con gross, with Thad. Stevens at their head, did not heretofore recognize the Legis latures of the States formerly in rebel lion as legalized bodies ; but no sooner does tho Legislature of the late rebel Rous Stato of Tennessee adopt tho pot Constitutional Amendment than tho House, by an overwhelming majority, at once not only acknowledges tho legality of its acts, but is willing that the Representatives of that Stato should tako their seats in Congress ; from which facts wo arguo that tho Radical party- is dead and gone that it died of fright at its own rash and ovll deeds. It raised up'a monster which, like that of Finnic enstein, appalled tho constructor. Thcro remains nothing now for .tlio other Southern States, in order to obtain a representation or loyal men on tho floor or Congress, but to get their Legis latures to pa.-s thoConstitutional Amend ment, which has been mado tho test or admission in tho House by tho decisive vote or ono hundred and twenty-flvo U twelve, and which amendment these States havo really accepted long ago, although tho Radical majority in Con gross did not choose to recognize tlio ract because it did not suit their pur poses. Step by step, Tor some tlmo past, the Radical faction hasbecn stultifying itaclf and abandoning the ground upon whicl it set its foot with such haughty deflauco to Executive authority aud public cen sure, while opposing tho policy of tho President and abusing him in unseemly languago it has virtually endorsed all bis views, proving thereby that while tho present Congress law all tho deslro to be Intensely vicious it is only exceed ingly foolish afterall. Tholastovidenco that tho Radicals havo been outwitted by their own blind machinations is furnished by the result of tho Tennessee question, which leaves tho door open for all tho othor Southern States to como Into tho Union, and gives n fair chaneo of reconstruction, which .was tho verv thing Thad. Stevens and his radical cohorts havo been working so assidu ously to prevent. Tho country will un doubtedly rejolco greatly at tho event, which promises to end tho revolution nry career of this dangerous faction. Jj.cciunije.

Up to a recent ditto Parson Rrownlow, or Tennessee, had tho reputation or be ing tho roulest-moutned man that spoke tho English languago, which Is equal to saying tho foulest-mouthed man on earth, for the English languago has ca pacities of vulgar foulness equalled by no other form of mortal speech with Which we aro acquainted. Ills ribaldry and blasphemy as a preacher shocked oven tho rude ruffians or the Southwest, whllo his scurrility ns a politician and editor gave him a position which node cent man, and few Indecent men, could approach. After having done as much as any other Individual of his capacities In tho South to stimulate the full spirit of slavery to war and treason, he saw lit for selfish ends, and to tho disgust of every loyal man in the country, to tako sides with tho Unionists of East Tennes see. Neither thoy nor we had any moro respect for his selllsh loyalty than for his ribald piety; but the course and force or circumstances kept him from open treachery by making it dangerous; and the generous attention nnd help he obtained from the courageous ond un flinching leaderof tho Tennessee Union ists, who Is now President or the United States, induced him to endure till tho Rebellion was prostrated by our ar mies. Even tho foulness of his tongue seemed to suffer an abatement forn short while, and it appeared as ir time might cause him finally to be tolerated by re putable people. Under these circum stances, nnd under prospect of reforma tion, Mr. Johnson was moro than gen orotts to him, aiding him to place and power, and finally assisting him to ob tain tho position of Governor, which Johnson had vacated to assume tho Vice-Presidency. Rut the dog will re turn to his vomit, and the serpent will plunge his fangs IiiTo tho bosom in which he has been warmed, Rrown low turned on the President turned upon him for ends as base and selfish as had formerly led htm to Join with him. Tho President would not as ho could not permit him to carry out the atro cious and savage purposes he had de signed upon those who were his enemies that Is to say, the greater part of tho peoplo of Tennessee, who had neither voted for him nor would uphold him. Rrownlow actually wanted to inaugu rate a general massacre and plunder or those whom he had made foes by thirty years of personal insult; and lie proclaimed this in language so fiendish ly vindictive as to shock every man who had any manhood left in his na ture. The President stood between him and his outrageous purposes ; and Rrownlow turned from thopooplewhom tho President had saved upon tho Presi dent himself. His olllco as Governor gave him no more self-respect now than Ids vocation us preacher had given him Christian character, whllo the fact that Mr. Johnson holds the olllco of Presi dent seemed to add zest to tlio rancor or his assaults. Ho sworo and raved more furiously than ho had ever done before, and used languago which would put to tho blush even that of the malignant madmen of Congress. 1 Io vented his per sonal malice " in season and out of sea son," In speeches, public documents, and in his newspaper, and let no act or word of tho President's pass without I'miling in it new opportunity of re venge for his grievances. It was quito In keeping, therefore, when in a dis patch to Washington, on Thursday last, announcing tho passage of the constitu tional amendment in one branch of the Tennesseo Legislature, ho had the black guard Insolence to add, " Give my com pliments to tho dirty dog at the White House." Ho know, or course, that in using such languago ho was perfectly safe from any notice or reply by tho party immediately assailed, and if it brought him renewed contempt from all decent men, that was but what ho had been accustomed to from tho begin ning or his career. Xeie York Timet. NAPOLEON'S PROPOSALS DIS REGARDED. Tin-: Emperor Napoleon must now feci that, however flattering to national self-esteem, and howover lofty the posi tion or arbiter or Europe, it is not ex empt rrom harra-isiug cares and vexa tions. I cannot say whether ho regrets having announced in the Muniteur the cession or Venethi and the acceptance ol' his meditation by Austria; but I may safely affirm hut ho uvu by no means sathjied with the muntfextatton that im mediately followed it. Those manifesta tions on tho part of (ho French popul ation, tho banners mid orijlammen which floated front every window in Paris and in the great and small towns of tho Empire, and tho illuminations, could not havo been moro brilliant had Franco herself Just closed a hard-fought campaign by a glorious victory. They were, in fact, meant to bo tho unmis takable protestation of an entiro peojilo In favor of peace- or a peoplo who wero naturally proud that tho ublo sovereign who rules them should bo thus sued, out who, too hastily, perhaps, jumped to tho conclusion that all was over. Tho emperor is disappointed at flndingthat Prussia is re-olved to pass tho limits which may havo been originally assign ed to her in her action against Austria; He is disappointed and indiynuntixt leant, if wo may Judgo from ainieai-nn. ees, and from what Is said in official re gionsthat tho Italians bhoulil ho so far forgetful of what they owo to him as to disregard his repeated injunctions, and so continue tho war by Invading a ter ritory which has been given to hliu-lu trust, no doubt, for Italy, but which for tho moment belongs to France. Ho Is annoyed and pained that bntli should continue to act as if there had been no question of mediation; that Konlggratz should bo besieged, and CI. aldlnl cross tho Po ; that neither belllg ereut will wulvo for tho briefest Ills right to carry on operations so long as tho armistice is not signed; that the iiuuaus should make a diversion in lii. vor of Prussia by harrasslng the ri.irr.-ii or tho Austrian army; and that both utoso military casuists, with swords by ineir sines, should deem it better to cut tho Gordliin knot which ho himself would initio by diplomacy. It Is trtio the armistice Is not signed, and tho French Government has not yet ofuel ally declared Its aeccptanco of tho gift which Austria has In her oxlrclilltV Of fered. If Italy bo"lfi6 proiedted" br Frunco, as tho French say sliO Is, she does not seem to havo much regard for the wishes of her protector. Tho Gen eral who is said to havo Just entered Venetia with his army Isthosamo whoj to the discontent of tho Emperor, Inva ded tho Papal States, and tho Emperof . proved his dlsplcasuro by recalling his minister from Turin. Tho Gazette de France, the persistent adversary of tho Italian Government, says It is astonish ed that there ore still peoplo who urd astonished at what It calls this hardi hood. "The Italians, bv despising tho fact of the cession or Venetia to France, only bear in mind that in the history of thii annexation effected by Victor Emanuel In Italy tho same contempt of ourcoun solsproved constantly favorabloto them. Thev received our protests, but they kept the territory they annexed in tho namo of Italian independence." I alluded yesterday to a rumorwhleh was not entitled to credence that the Po was not crossed without the cogni zance of tho Emperor. A paper which Is not c'orlcfil, nnd certainly not far rrom anti-Italian, I.e 'Temps, observes: " The most serious fact is the passogo of the Po by General Cialdlnl, notwith standing tho cession of Venetia to France, it is difficult to believo that tho Italians would havo token so deci sive a step unless they previously had the ossitranco that tho French Govern ment would not be offended by It." Prince Napoleon leaves Paris this evening for tho headquarters of tho King of Italy, on a mission rrom tlio Emperor Napoleon relative to tho nego tiations concerning tho armistice. rTho Prince, who is charged to regulato with King Victor Emanuel the definitive conditions or that arrangement, is to bo accompanied by Raron Saillard, recent ly sent to Mexico on an important mis sion. With Prince Napoleon's well-known sympathies with Itnly, no envoy could have a better chance Tor success. When the cousin or the Emperor, who Is, at the same time, the son-in-law or tho King or Italy, undertakes such a mis sion, it is because there is good ror hop ing that lie will incline tho King to act conformably to tho wishes of the Empo ror. The Prince proceeds to Verona, aud it is to him that the Austrian authori ties aro charged to deliver up tho city, as tho first formality or the cession mado to tho Emperor or the French. Two French Generals accompany his Impe rial Highness, and Verona, on its sur render to Franco, will bo at ouco trans ferred to I tidy. Paris Correspondence of tho London 'Times, July 11. ADROIT ROBBERY IN BOSTON. Oxk of tho most quiet and successful robberies which has taken placo In tills city for a long timo occurred sonio timii during last night, and wo give tho par ticulars as far as at present known.
