The policy of Napoleon. It is hard to penetrate the real purposes of the Emperor of the French in regard to Italy. Many persons give him credit for the romantic generosity of desiring to emancipate that people without fee or reward. Possibly, a smile lights up some wrinkle of his saturnine visage when he beholds such refreshing evidences of juvenile credulity and confidence.--Not long before the Crimean war he issued a pamphlet sustaining his own positions by the example of the great Napoleon, who, he said, only desired to make Italy French that she might become Italian. The Italians of that day were greatly pleased with the prospect, but when they saw Lombardy and Venetian parcelled out into Dukedoms and Principalities, and bestowed on the Marshals and political favorites of the Emperor, their enthusiasm subsided. Savoy and Nice are the first evidences that Louis Napoleon does not go a warfare upon his own charges, but they are not the last.
