“An account [of] an engagement between Garibadi's corps and the advanced posts of the Neapolitan troops, in which the latter were said to have been worsted, has not been confirmed. The French troops, which have now increased their numbers by various reinforcements to about 15,000 men of all arms, are still encamped at Palo. They have made an exchange of prisoners with the Romans. The latest authentic intelligence, which is dated the 10th inst. is the most important that has yet arrived, that two deputies from the Republic have been despatched to Lord Palmerston to solicit his interference, and that General Oudinot, though he is advancing his camp nearer Rome, promises not to renew an attack until the result o the mission be known. . . . . Our Artist has sketched. . . a Portrait of the Roman General Garribaldi [sic].” — Illustrated London News
