He retired, however, in good order. The result ol this is, that he has solicited the inter- ' venttm of sixty thousand Fiench troiys. Venice has done the same.

Oar Italian Cormpondeww. The War in /-omfcarrfy?The Great Battle Bctuxen the Austrians and Piedmonttte. Milan, July 28, 1848. The last week haa been pregnant with events which unfortunately portend serious consequences to Italy, and even, perhaps, to Europe. You will raeollect that, at the date of my last letter, the theatrc of war was the tract of country included between the Adige and the Mmcio, having at its four angles the fortresses of Verona, Peschiera, t' antua, and Leguano?fortresses almost uuparalh'le i lor 1 their strength, and all of thein celebrate i in his o j ry.

In the afternoon of the 27th. at 2 o'clock, the army of Charles Albert, 45.000 strong, was encamped around Gcita. Charles Albert, in taking up his centre in this position, had for his aim to force the Austrians ta an engagement Goita. which had been twice fatal to the Austrians. might again become the theatre of their defeat. The latter, on their side, had collected on the banks of the Po. Walde'n having raised the investment of Venice, had hastened to join them with all his forces It was supposed they intended to fall upon Modena. Parma, and Placenza. to take the I'iedmon tese by surprise, on the road to Cremoua and to cut < 11 tbeir retreat should the fate of arms prove unfavorable to them. The Piedmontese troops werp in want of provisions. < bey requested to be led to the enemy. Anions the meet ardent were those of General Sounaz. till tbeu erupted in protecting Peschiera. and which amse que ntly had not. as yet. taken a share in any engagement. Charles Albert, willing to avail himself of their good will, sent them on the evening the 26th. in the direction of Volta. General Sounaz was requested to ascertain the situation of the Austrian forties, then masters of that position, and if their numbers were uot too disproportionate, to attack them resolutely ? If otherwise, be was not to give battle now. The following was written by an eye-witness on the 27th. 4 r M.: "General Sounsx has attacked the enemy in the course of the evening, and after a most obstinate hattie. during the whole of which the Piedmontese displayed the most heroic valor, be became on the 27th, the master of Volta. Having been again attack d by D?rnsmy >ng?st mtmhers he ha? evacuated the position of Volta. and has directed his troops towards the general quarters of the enemy. They were In want [>l provision*, as all arrivals had been intercepted by the enemy on both sides.

A piece of intelligence it now in circulation, which re consider as very uncertain ; but whinh if true, rould amply compensate such sad reverses. It is tated that the Duke of Savoy, availing himself of the I Irparlure of the Austrian* from Verona, has attacked j bat e ty and taken possession of it.

There is some doubt about France interfering in the Italian question, though it is said two regiments have already left Lyons for that purpose.? The Minister of War had given orders for the immediate formation ot a camp at Marseilles, of from 15,OOOto 20,000 men. Envoys from Sardinia and Venice hud arrived in Paris. Goudchaux's hill for a tax on mortgages had been carried by 378 to 339. It is now said that the result of the interview between the Envoys from Italy and General Cavaignac is that France will endeavor to come to ! an understanding with England, in the first instance, to oiler the joint mediation of both countries to Charles Albert and Austria. The National Assembly, at its sitting on the 3rd instant, was ocsupied in considering the report of the Committee on the Insurrections. By that report the afliiir of the 1st of March is characterized as a manifestation ; that of the b'th of April as a 1 conspiracy; that of the 15th of May as an overt i act of treason ; and that ol June as civil war.? , Ltdru Rcllin is inculpated in April and May; i Louis Blanc and Caussidere, the latter very se riously, in nil, and M. Proudhon,in June. It is is supposed that these parties will be taken into custody. Lnniuitine is not compromised many of the outbreaaks. The celebrated bulletin of the Republic, No. 16, is cited in the commencement of the report, ana Madame Georges band stigmatised as the author. After the report was read. Ledru-Rojlin mounted the tribune, and defended himself with feverish animation, but without producing any fact. The Mountain cheered him iuriously. M. Louis Blanc next spoke, with still more embarrassment than Ledru-Rollin. The first part took about an hour in the delivery, and at the close of it the session was suspended for a short time. Certain passages in thjs strongly inculpated MM. Ledrn-Rollin. Louis Blanc, and Caussidiere, and the reading of them elicited from these individuals severally most violent reclamations, and drew from M. Caussidiere, more especially, epithets, in reference to the report, which poiite ears do not delight in. Before the reading of the report commenced the President of the As6? mbly called attention to the great importance of the document they were about to hear, and to the possible necessity of arresta- J Hons arising out of the disclosures about to be i made. This announcement was received by the I AOOllUUi; TV I ill (HV1VU1IU rillUlltlll. lie rm any.

The Great Fire In Albany. We give, to-day, further particulars of the disastrous conflagration which has, within a few | days, reduced fully one-eighth part of the city of Albany to ruins. The destruction is truly appalling | In addition to the loss of property, many ( families have had their all consumed, and are bereft of shelter as well as of property. Measures | for the relief of those unfortunates have been taken. A public meeting has been called to de- , viae means for their aid and assistance; and we ( are glad to see that Mayor Havemeyer, of New t York, has likewise taken the matter in hand, and ( has determined to call a meeting of our citizens for the accomplishment of a similar end. The meeting will be called, we are informed, for 2 1 o'clock to-morrow. c This will be as it ought to be. New York can- , not, with unconcern, contemplate the ruin that has overtaken our sister city. She will do some- * thing, and we are confident that this circular will ? be punctually responded to, and that relief for 1 the unfortunate and calamity-stricken people of p Albany will be promptly rendered from here. * Our foreign Correspondence, f We give only a small portion of our foreign cor- ( rcnpondence, received by the Cambria, in this a morning's Iltrald. To-morrow we shall continue * the publication, and give letters from London, * Paris, Madrid, Home, Herlin, Arc. c The intelligence from Kurope, by the Cambria, is of the greatest importance. There is every in- r dicution that a general war will soon breakout J on the Continent. France, Russia, Austria, and, > indeed, all Germany are making extensive pre. * paretic ns for the anticipated struggle. War already p exi: ts in Italy, and hostilities will soon recommcnc c in Denmark. t The policy of France appears, at present, to be j o; pon d to a wer; but circumstance-1 seem likely to lorct her into an intervention in the afTu.s of ? Italy. Tioops were rone titrating at the foot of the j] Al|* to int't t any emergency.

Much disturbance has existed on the island, and numerr^is arrests have been, and continue to be, made f daily. n fbc foreign Rcn?< | The news from Ireland is disheartening, but there is yet a ray of hope. The government policy, thus far, has triumphed. It has presipilated matters / to a premature crisis, aud the consequence is a partial victory. This was tle-ir i>o!icy At former | times; but it cannot settle Ireland now. The iron has entered her soul, and her destiny proclaims that she will sooner or later be sepirated from i England. Never, within her history, have the 11 feelings of mistrust and hatred towards the Saxon } been stronger than they are now ; and although l tliey may be suppressed lor a while, they will H eventually breuk out, and the longer the eruption is l delayed, the bloodier will be the conflict that will | take place. v We do not, however, think that the movement J has commenced there in earnest. We have no- t .1 -- i u >. l *u..t ;> ko. mm*; uii wiutu iv uaac au u^iuivu iuai u noo. ^ Two or three clubs have, tube sure, been dissolved, v and an (meute between ?nuth O'Brien and a party ? of mounted police has occurred. But this canno* , be magnified into a revolution. The time has <1 not come. The harveBt is ungathered. and foolish J indeed would be the people of Ireland, if they allowed themselves to be entrapped in the snare which the government laid for them, and be forced | into hostilities before the signal was given, and an 1 announcement made that all Ireland was ready. ii This is strengthened by the fact that additional * counties have been proclaimed, and additional j regiments of troops ordered into that country. J There are now fifty thousand troops there. A g silence prevails throughout the country; but we think it is that calm which precedes the storm. J The next steamer may bring us news of the commencement of the reul Irish revolution. J As a general thing, we do not believe that the people of the United StateB are aware of what the * people of Ireland have beeu agitating for, for a number of years pust, and which they are at the * present time, perhaps struggling for at the cannon's e mouth. They have heard a great deal about the * repeal of the union; but why the Irish people should demand such a measure, and ceaselessly x agitate it for forty years, they cannot tell. {j We shall endeavor to give them some informa tion on this point. In the first place, the measure j was carried by the grossest artifice and corrup- I tion. In the words of Mr. Grattan, the threat J was proceeded on ; the peerage sold ; the caitiffs > of corruption were everywhere?in the lobby, in the streets, on the steps, and at the door of every ( parliamentary leader, oflering tittles to some, J office to others, corruption to all. Twenty-seven counties out of thirty-two petitioned against the i measure. t The number of signatures to petitions in favor t of the union, was 3000 ; against it, 707,000. Here, ^ then, is one reason why the union with England t should be repealed, and why the people demand ' tt. The original trickery and corruption by which ' the union was effected, might be overlooked at 1 the presentl day if Ireland had flourished under ( the connection. The reverse, however, is the ' case. f In 1801, the Irish nationat debt was ?23,009,000. t In 1817, it was ?112,009,000. 1 To show the disproportional increase between i the Irish and English debt, we give the latter for t the same period :? B English debt, in 1801, ?446,000,000; in 1817, 730,- 6 000,000. I * The British debt has therefore increased sixty- j four per cent, while that of Ireland increased three t hundred per cent. The lollowing table will show the increase of | Irish revenue tor forty years before the union :? Y*ar. R'vtnue. 1760. .?607 811 f 17S0 1.633.202 1708 2.002862 1800 3.446,718 In forty years, therefore, the revenue was more than five-fold. In forty-six years after the union, viz : in 1846, the revenue was only j?4,G92,463. This is another strong reason why the union should be repealed. Again, there is no landlord aud tenant law : there is an odious church establishment by which seven-eighths of the people are obliged to pay their substance towards the maintenance of a church which they do not believe. Ireland's commerce and manufactures have been ruined, and to snch * a miserable state has she been reduced, that her people are dependent on a single root] for subsistence. ? From year to year she has remonstrated against a continuance of this state of things. She has, ' over and over, petitioned for remedial measures. ?i She wanted equal representation; but it has been denied?she wanted taxes imposed on the property of absentees; but it has been denied?she wanted ' the church establishment abolished, but it has been denied. In a worH. him a??bi?rr l? __ ? gal remedies so long, and to no purpose, that she has at length come to the conclusion that Kngland c has no feeling in common with her, and that she is justified in taking up the sword nnd severing the connection existing between the two countries. a These are the wants of Ireland. These have led to the present struggle. What is to be the result of that struggle I Is the rebellion crushed I Are the Irish to be overpowered so easily I We shall soon see. We may know when the next iteamer arrives. She left on the 12th inst. The rth was fixed by the government as the latest day ,a or the surrender of the arms of the people, and on he Hth the trials of the patriots for sedition, wers * 0 begin.

The tire ran over portions of the oity that had bees aid waste by recent cnutUgrations. and upon whieh tew buildings bad recently been finished. The Couinbiau Hotel and Fort Orange are again demolished, nr. S. K. Sliepard. who had erected new buildings and etumed burinese. is again burnt out. We are happy o li urn, however, that he saved about ?2,000 worth of ;o'ds. The steamboats Issue Newton and IUp Van Winkle (ere both en life, but both were got off into the river nd preserved. Kiev* n tow boats, between forty and sixty canal lOats, one small steamboat, one schooner, and two ioats. were destroyed. This disastrous lire originated in the stable of Mr. .'allaghan, whieh adjoiss that of Mr. Johnson. It is lot known how it originated. The ruins e ver an area of 200 acres; every foot of rhioh was densely covered with buildings. There r?re more buildings upon it than upon any other qual space in the city Four-fifths of the building* turned were brick?most of them large and substanlal; and many of them three or four stories in height. IJ ntil five o'clock It was feared that the flames could tot be checked south of State street ; bat about tfada icur the wind changed to the north, and gave new tope to those ready to despair. hut while this change of wind was of great servio* n the heart of the town, it proved expensive to the iroperty on and south of Lydius street, between* )uiuu? and Broadway and Lydius and Herkimer. All be property within these boundaries was destroyed ifter tbe wind changed. No fears of its destruction tere entertained previously. There have been several lives lost. Mr. Johnson, rife, daughter, and grand child, who lived next to the Columbian, were horrioly burned. The child and Mr. . are dead ; others are not expected to recover. We lbvr rumors of other deaths ; but cannot trace them. The firemen did as well as they oonld : but it seemed mpotent to attempt anything against the fury of th? lames ; no human power could stay them. Our neigh>ors from Greenbasb, West Troy and Troy, came to he assistance of our firemen, and did effloient service. At 1 o'clock, A. M.. the wooden buildings on fire in Union street, looked threatening and tho alarm wad >ouD?led. At this moment, the Cohoes Engine Co. tame into the city, having left their villiage at D i clock?dragging their engine all the Way by hand. 1'bey at once proceeded to the place of alarm, and by heir timely aid, the tire was ohecked. When it was ascertained that the engines were un? ible to cope with the flames, it was determined to blow ip some buildings in Hudson street and Broadway. aptain Stone, of the Orduauce Department, and now tationed at the Arsenoi, volunteered his servieee, and hree buildings were blown up. and the flames thud lent on the south side of Hudsou street. Not more than four or five buildings are left standug between Herkimer and Hamilton and Union street* itid tbe river. 1 be desolation is complete. Mr. Akia'd Luildings, sonth of Herkimer street and near Dalllna treet. are badly scotched ; but nothing was burned outh of that line.
