The Battle of Solferino was won and the Retreat was what the losses May be neither the French nor the austrian accounts indicate but the Tyrl Telegram declares that the allies took 30 Cannon prisoners and several flags.

It is considered one of the strongest fortresses in Lombardy. The emperor of aus Tria had returned to Vienna. His interference with Tho plans of his military commanders had been any thing Bat to them. The Morii eur exhibits a careful avoidance of All particular facts respect ing the late Battle which would indicate the actual loss of the allies. The pied Monteso fat Etc estimates that one thousand sardinian were killed and the like number wounded. The Moni Teiter avoids estimating the French loss. But it has transpired that the zouave suffered greatly that one general was killed with four wounded that orders had been sent to Milan to prepare four teen thousand Beds for the wounded and that Napoleon directs Large reinforcements to be sent to him from France. Tho National guards of whom As citric a soldiers the Imperial Rule has very jealous is to be re organized so As to Garrison Paris while the regular troops go on Active service. There was a Rumor too of an intention to move a French army to the Rhine. It is evident though the allies won the Battle of Solferino and the Nastri ans had to retread their Way beyond Tho Mincio that the allies also sustained losses so very severe As to prevent their pursuing immediately or follow ing up the Victory by a subsequent at tack Between Tho 24th and the of Juno.
