the recapture of Kaschan.

but Bern has succeeded in explaining to
the people and their chiefs that Austria
merely aims at the enslavement of all
Hungarian races, making use of one to
6ubdue the other. And tins conviction
seems also to have been infused into the
Croatians, who began to waver. The

gusted with the project of centralization
uul destroying the rights of Hungary,
that they have openly declared their de
termination to resist it. Amongst those
who have made this declaration is Count
Esterhazv, of Dotis, a wealthy magnate,
who seldom meddled with politics, but
whose influence in several eomituts, even
of the west, is enormous. In conse
quence of the Count Ksterhazy,s discon
tent, the conitut of Gras has re-risen in
a kind of insurrection.
The Hungarian Lutherans are, to a
man, for theinsurrection. Count Charles
Zay and Uarou John Zeszenak, the super
intendants or chiefs of the Luthern church
(the olllce is always held by laymen.) are
in Kossuth's camp. And indeed, the seat
of the Diet in Debreckzin, the chief city
of the Calvinist Maygars, shows that all
the Hungarians of the reformed religion
look to the prevalence of Austria to be a
religious, as well as a political subjuga
