The Pope's health.

--A letter from Rome, of June 29, in the Sentinella Bresciana, says:

‘ "The Pope is going fast; he is dying in sleep. The physician, Francesco Sani, who was lately sent for, could not understand his strange malady. The following, among other symptoms, show the utter falsity of the assertions made by the French journals that his Holiness has recovered: A persistent state of somnolence; continual pain in the epigastric region; a sort of paralytic trembling all over the body, but particularly in the hands; cold, shivering fits, so severe that he is obliged to be wrapped up in blankets; great depression of spirits, and such a want of appetite that he can swallow nothing but ices."
