GARIBALDI AND THE HERZEGOVINA.
Garibaldi has written the-folio whig eloquent letter to; the Herzegovina Insurgents:— ! "Caprera, Oct. 6. , "To my brothers of the Herzegovina,, and to the oppressed of Easte;. .1 Europe. —The Turk inusb go away to Eroussa. He descended like a wo I', passing'-^l.e Bosphorus, devastating, murdering, 'and violating those... populations ..who. gave .us the Pelasgi, who were,..perhaps, the first ,ciyi! :r;e.vs of Europe. 'He must no longer tread upon that part, of the world kept by huh :_. miaei/.'; At'Eroussa, -with lr"s vices, depreciations, and-ci deities, he'wiT find enough people of Asia Mr' ior-: to- torment ancl plunge into desolation.; ,• R':se theii,heroic sons of. Montenegro, Herzegovina,. Bosnia, Servia, Therapia, Mace- ■ doiiia" Greece, Epirus, Albania, JBulgsa'a, and Roumariia ! All of you have a most ! splendid histoiy. Among you were born Leonidas, Achilles, Alexander, Seanderberg, and Spavtacus. And to-day, even among your robust populations, you may still find a Spartacus and a Leonidas. Do not trust Diplomacy. That old woman without a heart certainly deceives you. But with you are all tho men of heart throughout the world. England herself, till to-day favourable' to the' Turks, has manifested to you by means of the obolus and sympathy of "one of" her great men that sne ought to prefer the alliance and gratitude of a confederation of free peoples to the'decrepit confederation of Empire of the Crescent. Then to Broussa with the Turk ! Only thus can youj make, yourselves independent and ; jfree. On this side of the Bosphorus the fierce Ottoman will always be under the stimulant of eternal war, and you will never obtain the sacred rights of man. "G. G-4.RiB/..LDr." ■'*
