the same time had sent f30 for the Hungarian Committee:

Austyian Cruelties.
Ruggiero, an Italian ecclesiastick, relates to the Bishop of Pesth a tale of devastation by the Tartars in Hungary, which Gibbon calls the "best picture of a barbarian invasion." If the historian were now living, he would see an imitation of this picture far surpassing the original in force of colouring. Tranquilly as he discourses on human crimes and sufferings, he would surely now exhibit to the indignation of mankind the cruelties which again are perpetrated in that country. They are enough to excite it even in France herself, fallen as she is from step to step in servitude. A general at the head of a German army denounces death, both on soldiers and civilians, without trial and without delay. This insolent and ferocious bastard, whom even the vilest family would disown, threatens thus the bravest men of the most illustrious. Lord Nugent, when he called upon our Parliament to interfere, would not trust his tongue (he said) with this man's name. When it was whispered in the House, there was a universal shudder. Such an effect had not been produced before, even by the murder of men made prisoners while fighting for their established and acknowledged laws. Often had soldiers and citizens been slaughtered for defending their native land, but never before were ladies scourged for lamenting it. Let us hope the hour is near when female hands will inflict this milder chastisement on the unmanly culprit, before he is committed for the remainder of his days to the grating that encloses less ferocious animals.
