Affairs in Italy.

--The following additional items about affairs in Italy, are received by the Arago:

Victor Emanuel was to leave for Sicily on the 11th.

There is no fresh intelligence respecting the negotiations for the capitulation of Gaeta.--It is asserted that the garrison is composed of only a few battalions.

The Austrian Government denies that a circular note of the Warsaw interview had been addressed to Rome, Naples, and the ex-Dukes of Italy.

The Neapolitans had entered the Papal States, through their General's treachery.

It is stated that General Guyon considers his position untenable.

Garibaldi has just issued a farewell proclamation to his late army, concluding by telling his companions in arms that an army of a million men will be wanted to follow him again to a fresh conflict, which is likely to break out in March next.

The siege works before Gaeta are actively continued, and if the garrison will not capitulate, a general bombardment will commence. Francis II. has rejected the proposal to evacuate the town, on the basis that he commands the troops, 13,000 in number, at Gaeta, and relies on the strength of the fortress.
