Reported death of Alberto Mario.

‘ --Letters from Naples state that Signor Alberto Mario, the husband of Madame Jessie White Mario, has been killed. he was sent by Garibaldi at the head of a column of one thousand men, to put down a reactionary movement in Molise. The patriots were overpowered and cut to pieces by a body of Neapolitan soldiers six times their number. Only forty out of the thousand are reported as being saved, and in that number Mario's name does not occur.--The encounter is said to have been tremendous, the Garibaldians having fought like lions and against desperate odds. --’ Newcastle (Eng.) Chronicle.
