The exiled Dukes.

--According to recent advice, the exiled Italian Dukes are preparing for "hard times." The Duchess Regent of Parma has reduced by half the emoluments of her representatives at the European Courts. The Grand Duke of Tuscany and the Duke of Modena have determined to suppress all their representatives at the end of the year. From the month of December the troops of the Duke of Modena will be informed that they are at liberty to return home or to enter the Austrian regiments in Venetia. These are pretty good proofs that these princes are sufficiently convinced of the impossibility of a restoration, even though Austria should succeed in renewing the war.
