democracy in Isaac G. McKinley (and we might

But do they who say this not know that the sol

whole superincumbent mass of things. What
rouses Germany now is the question of national
Unity. The Frankfort Parliament may have

behind it, and its work will never he allowed to
fall to the ground. Meanwhile Germany con- ,
tinues victorious in Schleswig ; that will only
help the Revolution.
Still the Magyars hold their ground, and
launch defiance, not only at Austria, which
they have beaten, hot at Russia, whose hordes
are pouring down upon them. In Gallacia the ,
elements are prepared, and Poland only bides her
hour. France and England lay protest against
the Russian intervention. Protest here means
armed opposition.
The European War is thus begun ; the third
act of the Revolution has opened. When will
the curtain fall upon its catastrophe, and the
embattled nations, having buried the remains of
Kings and of all Aristocracies, return in peace
to their homes ?
