Garibaldi in Retirement.

--The Gazette di Torino gives some particulars of Garibaldi's landing at his island home. "Garibaldi," it says, "has arrived at Caprera. He appears extremely happy; in the first place, because he has resigned the management of affairs at Naples into the hands of the King Galantuomo; secondly, because he is finally free from the numberless petitions with which he has been pestered. He speaks with enthusiasm of his regained freedom, and he has been anxious to extend it even to his three war-horses, which he with his own hands unsaddled and unbridled, and allowed freely to run about the country the moment he set foot upon his own isle. So eager was the Dictator to be free from all cares of state, that he with his own hands loosened the mooring cable which was to waft him away from Naples to Caprera.--He expresses, however, the greatest faith in the future of Italy, and in the character of King Victor Emmanuel."
