The Democrats are sure that it will go strong for Douglas next fall. In Rhode Island, Col. Sprague, the Dem ocratic nominee, was elected over his com petitor, Paddleford, an "irrepressible con flict" man. by a majority of nearly 2,000.— He was supported by the conservative men •f the State. This is a great triumph. The first indication, that benighted New England has shown, that she was coming out from under the dark cloud of Niggerism In Wisconsin Dixon is elected Judge over A. Scott Sloan, the Republican nominee, by a large majority. This ahows well, also.— The general indications are that a great re action of public sentiment is taking place, an! that next fall, should the Charleston Convention be guided, as it undoubtedly will. by wise and patriotic sentiments, and en dorse, without addition or diminution, the Democratic platform on the Territorialques lion, the Democracy will achieve a sig »ial aid decisive victory. THE HOMESTEAD BILL. The Homestead Bill, which passed the House, is still being daily discussed in the Senate. It seems likely, from the spirit manifested, and the test-votes taken, that it will pass in soma shapj or other. Mr. Brown, of Mississippi, proposed an amend ment embodying the following propositions First, The pre-empor shall not sell, ali enate or dispose of his or her right for a consideration and if he or she voluntarily abandons one pre-emption, and claims an other, no right shall be acquired by such claim, until the claimant shall first have testified, under oath, before the register of the land office, when the claim is preferred, that he or she has voluntarily abandoned bis or her original pre-emption, and that no consideration, reward or payment of any kind has been received or is expected, di rectly or indirectly, as an inducement for In favor, Messrs.

ARniVAL or THE.STEAMSIIir KANOABOO. Savoy Annexed to Fiance, and the Emelian Pnvincesof I'a'y Annexed to Sardinia— the Pope Excommunicates Victar Emanaeh NEW YoBK.AprilG.—The steamship Kan garoo, from Liverpool, at 11 A. M., of the 21s ult., via. Queenstown, 22d, arrived this morning. The annexation of Savoy to France was generally regarded a^ an accomplished fact. London Times says the Emperor Napo must be permitted to carry off his prey. All the appointments of officials for Savoy had been completed in Paris. Mrs. Jamison, the authoress, is dead, and Florence Nightingale was seriously ill. FRANCE.—According to the Paris corres pondence to the London Pod, the relations of France and England wero not in a verj satisfactory state. ITALY.—To the announcement of the votes of the people of Emelia, the King of Sardinia said—"I accept their solemn vote.and hence will be proud to call them my people, uniting to my ancient powers, not only the States of Modena and Parma, but also the Komagna. which has already separated itself from the Papal Government, I do not to fail In my deep devotedness to the Chief. I am ready to defend the independ necessary to the supreme minister of religion, the Pope, to contribute to the splen dor of his Court, and to pay homage to his sovereignty. Our Parliament, in receiving representatives of Central Italy, will assure prosperity, liberty and independence to the new kingdom." The official Gazette publishes a Royal de cree, annexing the province* of Emelia to Sardinia another decree convokes the Elec toral Assembling of the Emelian provinces for the 25th of March, and another decree appoints fifteen new Senators. Nothing decisive had taken place relative to the annoxtion of Tuscany to Piedmont.— The Tuscan Assembly had dissolved. The Paris Pabi- states that 50,000 men were about to be levied in Tuscany, and 25, 000 in the Emelian provinces, thereby in creasing the Sardinian army to nearly 3)0, 000 men. It was asserted that Piedment would con tract a loan of 150,000 francs. The director of the Pope's public debt at Home had gone to Brussels to contract a loan of 10,000,000f. The Paris Constitutional states that the Pope had addressed a monitory to King Vic tor Emmanuel, intimating that henceforth all relations between His Holiness and theces Rojal Family must be considered as broken off—that his Majesty will understand that he has openly violated the laws of the Church, and is formally excommunicated.— The Holy Father reserves to himself the duty of taking into his consideration the in terest of the universal Church and the good Catholics of Piedmont, before proceeding to severer meesurs, which in any event that may take place, weigh from henthibrth upon the person of the King. La Nord .says ihe moment the Pope's bull is fulminated, the cities of Milan, Genoa, Leghorn, Turin, Bologna and Florence have mutually agreed to illuminated a' give the character of a great national celebration to the event. It was said at Vienna that the French troops at Home would retire to Civita Vechia if the Pope excommunicated Victor Emanu el! Another report is that the Neapolitan troops will at once make their entrance in to the Papal States, if the Sardienians take the possession of Ramogna. The municibal council of Nice had voted against the annexation to France, and sent a deputation to Turin on die Subject. AUSTRIA.—It is stated that the French Embassador had informed the Austrian Gov ernment of the approaching evacuation of Lombardy by French troops, and in the name of his government expressed the wish that Austria would continue to observe non-intervention in the affairs of Centra Italy. The Austrian Iffte says that since the at Villa Franca the Emperor had made too much sacrifice for the maintenance ofpeace to be able to recommence a European but although keeping a merely ob servant attitude, Austria must nevertheless draw the attention of France to the secret of the Sardinian agents in Venetia, and repeats most distinctly that the Empe Francis Joseph would not hesitate to make the greates sacrifices in the maintenance of his rights in Ven'etia. Popular demonstrations had taken place Pesth and several other places in Hun gary, commemoration of the Revolution of 1848. Austria declines to renew diplomatic rela tions with Sardinia, owing to her violation of the treaty of Zurich in annexing the Central Italian States. The Paris correspondent of the London Pout telegraphs that a report that Austria had joined in the protect of Switzerland on the question of the annexation of Savoy, is without foundation. SPAIX AXD MOROCCO.—In the last engage ment reported, the Spaniards had 250 killed an wounded. The Moors numbered 15,000 and the action lasted seven hours. In an other severe fight on the 7th, the Spaniards were victorious. Tangiers was expected to be attacked in a few days. The whole Spanish fleet had left Gibral tar for Teutan. NVPLES.—Gen. Filaughieri had resigned, and Prince Cassaro succeeded him as Pre sident of Council. An invaion of Kokoees Sirmah had taken place at Tipperah. One thousand persons were murdered. A report was current of treason at Indoor, the capital of Halkar. LONDOM, Thursday:— The Shah of Persia is dead. STILL LATER. The Niagara with dates to the 24th of March, and the Prince Albert, from Galway, March 31, have both arrived. ITALIAX AFFAIRS.— The King of Sardinia has signed a decree annex ing Tuscany to Sardinia. The Paris constitutionel, in au arti cle by its principle editor, says the withdrawal of the French troops from Italy is [hifl bejj considered a sign of coolness between France an 1 Sardinia. France leaves Lombardy because its independence is irrevocably assured.— Austria only intends to act in defence of the irontier of Venetia. The loyal ty of the French policy could not occa sion her any embarassraent on that subject. The withdrawal of the French army from Italy is, therefore, a sign of the approaching solution of the question of Italy, and not a sign of complication, which the wisdom well as the interest of Piedmont know how to prevent. usurpation in the Komagna, and had sent a protest to all the governments against the annexation of the legation to Sardinia. The treaty of the cession of Savoy to Fiance was not published, but its features were already known. The London Times, in an editorial, admits that the annexation must be quietly allowed, but at the same time denounces the act as one of spoli tion and wrong, and in principle as bad as a march upon the lihine or a sudden attempt on Antwerp. It adds, it must leave upon all minds the con viction that there is no safty except in continual watchfulnesss and armed preparation against the agression of a sovereign who thus seizes upon the posessions of a iriendly power. FRANCE.— The French senate had indirectly rejected, by a large majori ty petitions requesting their interven tion in favor of the temporal power of the Pope. The Paris correspondence of the London Times says that all the powers had replied to France relative to Sa-erally voy, and gives the following as the substance of their notes Russia says that so long as the right of ihe people to select rulers is not put forward by France, and that as the present change does not affect the balance of Europe, what Sardinia may do with Savoy is no business of hers. Prussia says that, as the Emperor of Fiance formally disavows the doctrine of natural frontiers, the transfer of Sa voy is no business of hers. Austria declares that she certainly does not approve of any annexation of the kind, but as Europe stood by when other annexations were affected, she does not see what she has to do with Savoy. GREAT BRITAIN.—Lord John Rus sell had slated in the house of com mons that the San Juan question was sppoaching a settlement. A warrant had been issued Heenan and Sayers, to compel to keep the peace.

It bjars date Sante Fe, February 25 I am very busy preparing for a war against the Nayajoe Indians, who have been very troublesome this winter. Last week we had a fight with them at Fort Craig, on the Rioretary Grande, which resulted in killing and wound ing over thirty-five and recapturing from them booty they had stolen from the ranches on the river, viz 16,0 )0 sheep, a number of cattle, horses, &c. This has been the most successful coup we have yet had with them, and will quiet them for a time, but nothing short of a severe punish ment will effectually awe them, and this we hope to give them this summer, as about a thousand of our troops are mustering and concentrating for the purpose.

SEWABD. woQld like to have some of our Re publican friends reconcile the following ex tracts from Gov. Seward's latest speeches, so as to preserve the consistency of their author. The speech of October 1858 was at Rochester,, New York, and the one of February 1860 was made in the United States Senate: October, 1858.—"It is an impressible con flict between opnosit and enduring "forces, and it means that the United States must will soon become either entirely a slave nation or entirely a freelabor na tion." February, 1860.—"The whole sovereign ty upon domestic concerns within the Union divided betweon us by unmistakable bounderies "you have your fifteen dis tinct parts, equally distinct. Each must be maintained, in order that the whole may be preserved." Nt W A VERT18EMES TS. ADVERTISE. ADVERTISE. ADVERTISE. It is a truth, universally admitted in thin age. that man in any business can be suc cessful unless he aivertises liberally, and makes himself and his business known to the people. If anybody is so foolish as to doubt this proposition, let him open his sleepy eye* and loo' around him— look at his neighbors in business -mark the merchant who is con occupied in makimr himself known— who takes aivantage of that great ruler »f public opinion, the Press, to render himself popular und his advantages for doing business public—whose name nnd location are seen in hundreds of newspapers and on thousands of cards, handbills, &c. whose wide-awake pol icy is continually paining him a notoriety.— Compare him with that slow-go-no-go old curmudgeon, who never saw his name in print, except perhaps on the list of petit jurors and who sits behind his du-ty desk, in the dusty of his dusty grocery, waiting for CUM to.ners. like an old bottle-bollied spider, who bus bnilt his web in an obscure corner ot a dilapidated emoke-house. and sits watching vain for flies. Murk the dull loo about door, blocked up by empty dry goods boxes, ornamented once in'a while by a piece of blue?drilling or rusty calico but much oftencr proving a resting place for a crowd of lazy, lounging loafers, who alwaya resort to the store of a man who does not ad vertise, because tlier know there is no danger oi beinsr disturbed by customers. See the ad vertising 'merchant! He becomes acquainted with everybody, builds up a lurge business, cets rich netore he is too old to ccjoy riches, and retires, leaving a large and remunerative business to his sons and faithful clerks while he eiy.'Vs himself and his wealth, the honored leader of every progressive movement, tho dignified president of e.-ery society anJ association and perhaps the incumbent of .tho most honorable and responsible offices in tl.a State iSoc again your non-advertiser, who foolishly thinks people never read the advertiseineJt column of A newspaper.

Look aro- nd yon, enumerate tho merchants of your acquaintance, and see if is not so.
