The town has been of late swarming with officers come from all parts of Switzerland to the annual meeting of the Swiss Officers' Milii tary Society, Tlie proceedings of that society are generally of a quiet turn and scientific character, each canton sending its delegates to discuss questions relating to some cither practi . cal or theoretical, but mostly tcchuicnl, military points, indeed, that society has proved very use- ful both as being the promoter of many a mea«, sure likely to increase the efficiency of the Swiss army, and as being the ineaus of bringing together and drawing into closer acquaintance officers of nil those sninll slates Switzerland is composed of.

CLOSE OF THE CAMPAIGN IN SICILY. [TIMES, AUG. 4.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 19 October 1860

CLOSE OF THE CAMPAIGN IN SICILY. ["TIMES, AUG. 4.] Amid all the disquietude of the present time amid the burdens which the unsettled state of Europe brings upon us-amid grinding conscrip tions on the Continent and vexing taxation at home, we may yet be consoled at finding that the best qualities of individuals and nations are being called out ali over Europe. We cannot take a gloomy view of humanity and its future destiny when we see such a resurrection as that of Southern Italy, aud at its head such a man as Garibaldi. The career of the revolutionary leader is now matter of history, and hardly will this century bo able to produce a man more extraordinary in genius and character, and more happy on a great occasion for the display of his gifts. The Sicilian people, thanks to his cutiruge and con- duct, havo achieved independence. Neapolitan garrisons still occupy ono or two spots cn the eastern coast, but, with tho wholo island in the possession of their enemies, there will be nothin...

The following letter has been received from Warsaw, dated the 24th July : " The system ol' government which the Emperor Alexander established in Poland since the treaty of Paris, which, if not liberal, was at least tolerant, has been completely changed within the last two months, and lends to become as oppressive as that during fho reign of the Emperor Nicholas. In order to provo my assertion I will mention some acts already accomplished of a reactionary nature. First, the attack on the agricultural society, then the increased severity put in force against the press, the appointment of General Jelciiin to the Presidency of the secret commissions, so vvell known for his anti-Polish and nnti-Lihernl opinions-in fine, the seventy practised in the exclusion of foreign Journals from the kingdom of Poland, as was the cuso in tho reign of the Emperor Nicholas.
