In November 1S21 the final decision of
the Emperor arrived at Venice. Foresti
at that time was in the prison of the
Piombi. One midnight he was led out
by six armed soldiers through the long
line of magnificent rooms of the Ducal
Palace to the Bridge of Sighs, which con

The officers of the prison found him in
this condition, and the physicians pro
nounced his wound dangerous, though not
mortal. Cavalier endeavored to indue.
him to retract, promising him his life,
though forfeited in the sentences of three
legitimate tribunals, but Foresti remain
ed immovable, The Secretary therefore
reads his sentence:
'That all those accused of Carbonarism
by the process of Venice, of the grade of
Master and above it, wjre condemned to
c-eath. That still His Majesty granted
life to all except the Judges Solera, Fo.
.... - r i ill
resti, and Count Munari, who should be
execuita, wi:n an tne nsjor ana iormaii-
ties of the law, in the Public Square of
Venice.' Then was read a note under
the own hand of the Emperor, in which
he said that he would even give therr
lives to Solera,Toresti and Munari, if

views of His Majesty. 'I was sent back
to my prison; two guards were placed to
watch over me day and night. I was de-
prived of the use of the knife and fork,
and obliged to eat with my hands. The
doctor attended me with much kindness;
my wounds took a favorable turn, and I
was left there, condemned to death, and
uncertain whether or not the sentence.
would be executed
'On Christmas Eve, 1821, all the con
demned were led, chained two by two, to
a scaffold on the Square of St. Mark, m
Venice. Tt was about 12 at noon. The
square, the windows, the roofs were cov
ered with people. The whole Austrian
garrison of Venice was under arms, in
bands, in the squares' and streets. The
cannons placed between, tne iwo columns
Todere and St. Mark, The Viceroy,
brother of the Emperor, was on the great
balcony of the Imperial Palace. .Uhbro?
ken silence prevailed; one of the judges
read in, a loud voice the sentence of con
4emnatiqri ; at the word death, there was
a shudder of horror; at the word life
granted, there, was a crv of.iov.. Al
were saved from death, but all were Con
demned to irons. (carceremduro) .in the
Spielberg and the Castle of Lubiana
some' for 1 0, 1 5, ; some for ' 20 years. I
was among the-' latter. They 'said that my
youth saved me from' death. : Meanwhile
we were conducted to the Island of. San
Michael. Ladies and gentlemen follow
ed us in gondolas, waving white handker
chiefs and calling "to us, 'Courage,' cou
rage, brave patriots.' At night a grand
serenade was given us, from the Lagune,
and pieces of-poetry recited, which, from
the great distance we could not under
stand. A few months afterwards, at Mi
lan and Venice, were published similar
sentencesand all under the title of high
treason, and all condemned to Spielberg.'
Silvio Pellico was among his fellow
prjsoners, many of whom died.. On the
42lh of January, 1S22, the officers set
out with their prisoners for Spielberg.
ThQ journey lasted about a month a
terrible journey over the Alp's of Corin
thia'and Syria, amid snows and intense
winter cold the prisoners chained toge
ther, two by two. Spielberg is a moun
tain which rises above the city of Brunn,
the capital of Moravia. The vaults of a
fortress, erected by the Emperor Charles
V., were changed into a penitentiary, and
here with assassins and highway robbers,
incendiaries and villains of all kinds,
numbering generally from 800 to 900
men and women, the Italians were left to
drag out their miserable days. '
'To each of us was assigned a prison,
twelve feet in length and eight in breadth
with a small window with double rows of
iron bars. For a bed a plain wooden
plank, straw mattras3 and blanket, a long
iron chair fastened in the wall, an earth
en jug for water; this was all the furni
ture. We were allowed no knife and
ork but only a wooden spoon. Morning
and evening, broth of burnt flour and ba
con put in warm water: at noon a dump
ing and a little piece of meat, which pro
duced vomiting and a small portion of
read. 1 he food was given in a dirty,
dusty iron vessel.
The Emperor died in 1835, and his son
erdinand ascended the throne, immedi
ately passed a decree liberating the Ita
lan patriots, but condemning them to i
perpetual exile in America. On the first
of August, 1836, Foresti, with the other
prisoners, was transported by night to
Trieste, whence, on the 3d, they sailed
or America in the very same brig the
Usello from which Koszta in Smyrna
was dragged, immediately upon tneir
1 1 W 1 . 1 ' . 1
arrival-here they , were received with
much consideration by prominent citizens,
and a week later their fellow countrymen
gave them a hanquet at Delmonico s.
"Occasional,,' the Washington corres
pondent of the Philadelphia Press, writes
o that paper:
There is no doubt that a movement
will be made in the next Congress to in
vestigate the profligate employment of the
public funds in the late elect.ons and es
pecially the manner in which they have
been used against the democracy of llh
nois. A gentleman now here informs us
that the extent to which this matter has
been carried will, when it is exposed to
the people, create such a sensation as has
never been known in the United States
Gov. Brown of the Post Office Depart
ment, Mr. Cobb and Mr. Toucey, have
gone to extremes in punishing men who
have not agreed with them in opinion.
Jefferson Davis, in his late speech at
Portland, announced a doctrine that will
greatly exercise the quid nunc in Mis
sissippi being neither more nor less than
the assertion that a Territorial Legisla
ture can exclude slavery by refusing to
protect it. ' 1 his is no new idea ot the dis
tinguished Davis, tpough it will greatly
surprise some of those who have been re
lying upon him to help them on in espe
cial devotion to Southern rights. Noth
ing so clears the vision as for a Northern
er to visit the South or a Southerner to
visit the North.
Do not be surprised if, after Congress
meets in December, a Southern Democrat
shall rise in the Senate or House, and of
fer a bill repealing the English bill, so
as to allow Kansas immediate admission
or as soon as she has a Constitution rati
fied by the people. Stranger things than
this have happeqed. , V hen Congress ad
journed last summer Douglas was ostra
cised by almost the entire South. Now
he is lauded in niany quarters. This was
blow number one at the Administration.
Look out for blow number two.
The Coming Winter in New York.
The N. Y. Tribune says:
Our last wiuter was undoubtedly hard
one. Charity was taxed to the utmost, yet
many died, if not directly and absolutely
of hunger and cold, yet really of disease
engendered or rendered fatal by want.
The harrowing scenes rf that season of
distress we would gladly forget; but there
is another winter at hand, and it js likely
to prove even a severer trial than the last.
Our city is poor. Her trade for the last
year has been slender, precarious and un
profitable. Thousands have lost their all
through the failure of their debtors, Wre
have more houses, stores and ships than
we need, so that building will be nearly
suspended on the completion of structu
res now in progress. Our manufactures
are unprofitable and stagnant. The coun
try is generally poor and must buy but
sparingly and pay up but partially. How,
then, are ihe million people within a ra
dius of five miles, tq be subsisted through
the winter before us?

Weniger was officiating at the ceremony
of dedicating the Cross of Holy iTrinity
Church, in the presence of an immense
multitude, ;a solemn and extraordinary
event occurred. ..He says: "As soon as
the cross had been dedicated and was

white clouds, a reguiany-iorraeu large

A few days since the postmaster of
New Orleans arrested Michael Hertz, a
lad of sixteen, in the act of sigpinga re
ceipt, for a valuable letter addressed John
McMurdo of that city. Several valuable
letters have been mysteriously taken from
the post office since last May, and the po
lice have been on the watch for the ab
stractor for some time. Receipts for
most of these have been given in th? boy's
hand writing, and he has even forged en
dorsements of check and drafts enclosed
in these letters and got them cashed ' at
the city banks. How the officers could
be deceived by his bungling forgeries
is a matter of wonder to everybody. On

containing $165 and two notes for S10,-
000 drawn by a merchant of Centre ville,
La., for acceptance on a firm in New
Orleans, due 1st March 1S50. He was
committed for trial.
