Count Cavour.

The Zurich correspondent of the New York Journal of Commerce refers to the emphatic declaration of Count Cavour before the Sardinian Parliament, that neither in any public act, nor in any private negotiation, nor in any conference or convention, was a demand or even an allusion ever made that Piedmont should be required to cede a foot's breadth of Italian territory. This declaration does not shed any new light on the much talked of matter of another cession to France. Count Cavour, says the correspondent, like all diplomatists, knows how to disguise truth; his assurances are not worth a straw. Last year he gave just as positive assurances in regard to Nice and Savoy.
