And sonl responsive beats to soul In breathing out, 'God bloss you V 'God bless you !" ah ! long months ago I heard the mourning phrase, When one whom I in childhood loved, Went from my dreamy gaze.

At last Europe is palpably on the very eve of that great war, the approach of which has been clear to all discerning eyes since the beginning of the present year. The Niagara, which arrived at Halifax last Thursday, reports that on the 20th nil., Austria addressed to Piedmont an ulti matum to whose demands an affirmative an swer was required by the 24th. These de mands are that Piedmont shall immediately disarm, and especially shall dismiss the volun teers who have been galhcrirg to her standard iu consi(lerabIenumbers from all parts of Italy within the last two months. If these condi tions are not complied with in the time speci fied, Austria will at once declare war ; and this menace is supported by the movement of a force of 80,000 men upon the Piedmontese frontier, in addition, it is said, to those already collected there.
