THE

NINETEENTH

CENTURY.

No. XLVII.JANUARY 1881.

THE DAWN OF A REVOLUTIONARY

EPOCH.

There have been several periods in the history of Europe when all thinking men have felt that remarkable events could not long be postponed. Even within the last hundred years the French Revolution and the great Continental movements of 1848 were preceded by changes which betokened a serious shock to existing institutions. Careful observers predicted the approach of both the one and the other, though neither took precisely the anticipated shape. But never, perhaps, has the certainty of approaching trouble, social and political, been more manifest than it is to-day. The issues are more complicated than ever before, and that they can be settled without grave disturbance is scarcely credible. Of the political dangers by which Europe is threatened we hear daily. They are serious enough. With the whole Eastern Question reopened in a most dangerous siape—with Russian Panslavism and German ambition to reconcile with Italian aspirations and French yearning for the lost provinces to gratify—all the nations being armed for war as they never were

Since this was written, Baron Hübner has delivered his remarkable speech in the Austrian Delegations. From his ultra-Conservative point of view, he regards all Republican or Democratic ideas as proceeding direct from the Author of Evil, and proposes an immediate renewal of the Three Emperor League, or Holy Alliance, to stem the flood of revolution ere it is too late. Has not the time almost gone by for this combination of Governments against peoples ? Vol. IX.-No. 47.
