Further Foreign News.

By the Prince Albert, from Galway on the 23d ult., we have the following items of foreign news:

The Emperor of Russia, the Emperor of Austria and the Prince Regent of Prussia were all at Warsaw together, with Prince Gortschakoff, Count Rothberg and other prominent Ministers.

Nothing had transpired as to the conferences.

It is asserted that Russia has positively refused to enter into engagements with Austria which might lead to war.

The Constitutionnel announces that the Emperor received an autograph letter from the Czar of Russia explaining the nature of the Warsaw meeting, depriving it of any significance hostile to France.

The Bourse was flat and drooping, at 66f. 75c for the rentes.

Naples dispatches of the 21st of October announce that the vote on annexation was then being taken; much enthusiasm existed and immense crowds had assembled at the voting places. All was quiet at the latest dates.

The King of Naples had issued a protest, declaring he would consider the voting null and void.

A Naples dispatch of the 21st says that Garibaldi has officially declared he would lay down the Dictatorship on the arrival of Victor Emanuel.

The head of General Cialdini's columns encountered and beat a corps of Neapolitans at Isernia. The General commanding the corps, with his officers and 800 soldiers and flag, were taken.

Another dispatch says that Cialdini's captured a portion of the Neapolitan artillery.

Victor Emanuel arrived at Salonia on the 21st of October.

It was reported that provisions were beginning to fail at Greta.

The Piedmontese troops were encamped at Rieti, ten leagues from Rome.

The text of the Prussian dispatch relative to the invasion of the Papal States is published. It censures the action of Sardinia and rejects. Cavour's justification, but does not threaten any active hostility on the part of Prussia.

The Austrian official, Weiner Zeitung, publishes a reform manifesto from the Emperor. Many sweeping changes in the constitution are proposed. Legislative power is only to be exercised henceforth with the co-operation of the Provincial Diets. The Kerchwatzh Court of Chancery is restored to Hungary, and other important concessions are made to that province.

Gen. Benedict and Archduke Albert William have been sent to Italy.
