Count Cavour and the Mortara case.

--The Secretary of the Universal Israelite Alliance, of London, has received the following letter from Count Cavour:

Turin, Oct. 3, 1860.
I have received the letter which you have addressed me in the name of the Society of the Universal Israelite Alliance, soliciting the aid of the King's government in the steps which the father of the young Mortara is taking in order to recover his child from the convent in which he is at present retained. Persuaded of the justice of M. Mortara's demands, I have the honor to assure you, sir, that the King's government will do all in its power that this child, in whom the public opinion of Europe is so strongly interested, may be restored to his family. Be good enough I beg you, to acquaint the members of the Jewish Society of these intentions of the government of the King, and receive, &c.
