by the representatives of some foreign Powers the Austrian Government has replied its interests not being directly affected by the an nexation of Savoyto it would observe on this question the same

intentions as could be xpected from a country which owes its aggrandizement o A letter from Florence gives the Italian view ofthe The writer If Savoy is to should lie be annexed to France It is less for the Italians than or the whole of Europe to see if it be fit that any ncrease of territory should be granted to any empire vhich is already too strong for the public and whether that empire should be allowed to establish on icr Italian frontier a precedent which may equally apply o the banks of the The Italians must of compound with France on any terms an over jearing Power may Had they any
