THE DANGER MENACING ITALY. (ECONOMIST.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 4 October 1860
THE DANGER MENACING ITALY. (Economist.) The intelligence which reached us yesterdays of the violence offered to Baron Bremer, the ' French Ambassador at Naples, by the Neapo- litan mob is a matter of grave concern to the friends of Italy. There can be no doubt as to the true origin and intention of that assault. It is the act of lazzaroni, hired by the Sanfedist. party in Naples, for the express purpose of bringing about French intervention in the affairs of Naples. That Louis Napoleon is anxious for a respectable excuso to interfere we have but too good reason to know. French states- men have for some time been inclined to think that the power of the Neapolitan mob is too dangerous to the party of order in Italy to render it safe to abandon the Neapolitan Govern- ment to its fate. Hitherto this predisposition for intervention on the part of France has been kept in check by the attitude of England and other causes. Will it be kept in check any", longer now ? By the machinations of t...
