The Italian flag.

--A somewhat remarkable occurrence is reported in the last arrivals from Europe. It is that on the occasion of a visit of the Cardinal Archbishop to the city of Naples so great was the excitement and uproar, that after eighteen hours of incessant effort the populace succeeded, not, indeed, in destroying the mansion of the Archbishop, but in compelling him to come out and wave the Italian tri-colored flag. This was a victory, indeed, of popular perseverance over official immobility.
