The Daily Dispatch: April 4, 1863., [Electronic resource], The Polish insurrection — barbarous doings — an Incident. (search)
ure of a lameness brought on by a scrofulous affection. When he presented himself as a candidate his friends endeavored to dissuade him from going, telling him he was unfit for military service, and particularly for the sort of service needed in Poland at present. He replied: "I know all that, but you see while they are losing their time in killing me there will be a good man spared." So he took his departure. The well authenticated accounts of the fearful atrocities committed by the Russth to prevent them from fulfilling their mission of mercy. The hordes of Attila were not more terrible than the Russian soldiers of the nineteenth century. To these savage Cossacks are opposed the Polish Korsyniers, or Reapers, which are to Poland what the Zouave is to France, the Honned to Hungary, and the Bersagliers to Italy. They are the national soldiers — half soldier, half peasants their arms are characteristic — their scythes converted into a most formidable weapon. These bodies

The insurrection in Poland is called in the United States as a lucky event for the fortunes of despotism on this continent, because it will give the Western European Powers, and especially France, plenty to do at home, without troubling themselves about American affairs. The advantage is rather imaginary than real. There was no reason before the Polish insurrection occurred to anticipate any intervention of Europe on behalf of the South. England has stubbornly resolved to take no part in our quarrel, and France does not make any important move without England. In another respect the United States will derive little aid and comfort from the Polish rebellion. It is one of the vainest of nations, and its vanity has been inordinately fed by the attention it has lately attracted in the civilized world. It did not much care how it was spoken of, so it was only spoken of. It enjoyed amazingly the sensation its great war was awakening in Europe, and its journa
