have issued the most extraordinary docu
ment ever presented to the world. It is a
"Programme of the next General Revolu
tion in Europe." This proclamation is bold
and confident as it is now and startling to the
Monarclt8 of Europe. Heretofore revolu
tions have been secret in their incipient
singes. This is open, bold, defiant, and pub
lishes to the world their aims, purposes and
means. It is a document of great force- and
power, and has excited an intense Interest in
Europe. One of its paragraphs is very sig
nificant as to the future of Kossuth. It savs:
"Thero was wanting to tho free action of
the elements which combine with the Com
mittee to dig the grave of empire, the influ
ence of a mnn who embodies in himself the
aspirations of a free people: Kossnth is now
at liberty, and openly our brother."
This taken in connection with the visit of
Kinkel to this country the efforts to raise
a revolutionary loan, and other movements,
show that ere long, a general and united ef
fort will bo made to rid Europe from tho
curse of kings. That they may succoed is
the fervent prayor of every Republican

GoDKt's Lady's Book for December has
been received. Thero is a decided improve

this number. Tho embellishments are
"Dress-tho Wearer" and "Dress the Ma

pertinent to the subject than any pen could
