PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

German Revolution.
When the Emperor of Austria, by the instigation of his generals, had resolved on overturning the Constitution, it was evident enough that another Prince in Germany, who thinks himself much wiser and wanting no advice whatsoever, would attempt the same. In fact, the same impulse operated on both ; an impulse from without. The Russian armies were advancing to the north and to the south, along the Baltic and along the Danube. Every city and village of Poland was occupied to repletion from every nation of which the vast Muscovite empire is composed. What power in the universe is adequate to contend with it? None. Beside this consideration, it is manifest that the Sovereigns of Austria and of Prussia would rather owe the possession of their thrones to the favour of the autocrat than to the free-will of the people.

How much longer shall this be ? Nations ! ye are silent ; I will tell you, then. It will be until ye cordially and energetically unite ; until every country has again its own boundary, its own government, its own laws. Insensate are those princes who place their hands within the hands of others, and do homage for their crowns. Whoever can put on a crown can take it off again ; the wearer has the least power over it. Unsound is the rest and feverish are the dreams of those princes who lie down on broken promises.
