Discontent in Hungary and Bohemia 1860 - Discontent in II angary and Bohemia....
Discontent in II angary and Bohemia. Correspondent of the London Time. Viinha, Monday, Nov. 5. The private news which reaches me from llun-gaiy llun-gaiy llun-gaiy is excedlngly unfavorable. The peasants, who a few months ago appeared to be in total ignorance of everything that was passing abroad, now Ulk of the f peetly advent of G ajcibaldi and Kossuth. The latter,, as the peasants ay, is to do away with all taxes and to abolit-h abolit-h abolit-h the tobacco monopoly. In several parts of Hungary the wivtts of the tojacco-grower tojacco-grower tojacco-grower have pub licly offered the "weed" for sale, for which offence against the law thev have been committed to prison. It is here utpected that arms have been smuggled into Hungary from Servia. Persons ot my acquaintance men in whose judgment judgment I can have confidence give a very unfavorable account of the frtate of public feeling in Bohemia. The statutes for Styria, Carinthia, and Saizburgh have produced an extremely unfavorable impression on the Bohemians, as well Czechs as Germans, and they ue language which I do not consider it advisable advisable to repeat, it would appear that the most moderate moderate politicians in Bohemia are those who wi.sh that the Emperor of Austria should be crowned King oi Bohemia. The ultra-conservative ultra-conservative ultra-conservative nobles have managed managed to make themselves so very unpopular in all parts of the Empire, that they w ill be placed in an unpleasant, unpleasant, if not positively dangerous, position should there be popular disturbances in the Spring. People say that they greatly prefur absolution to an oligarchical oligarchical form of government. An impression prevails here that the Austrian Government Government will soon be obliged to recall some of the troops from Venetia, as it will not be able ta procure s ilver with which to pay them.
