FURTHER PARTICULARS. Intelligence has been received from Vienna, of the 25th ultimo. The utmost agitation prevailed in the city on ac- count of the advance of the Hungarians. Should the Hun- garian army appear under the walls of Vienna the Viennese would rise upon the garrison, and open the gates of the city to their Magyar deliverers. The Constitutional Gazette of Vienna, of the 24th ultimo, says:— Though the tranquillity of our city has not yet been dis- turbed, the news of our ill success in Hungary has produced a strong effect upon the populace. The streets are regularly patrolled, but the public-houses are filled with the factious, and cries of Kossuth for cIv, ell 1 are frequently heard. The workmen seem prepared to enter anew on the political arena. It is said that they intend, in case Kossuth attacks Vienna, to rise en masse, in order to join him. The public consterna- tion is extreme; every one wishes to procure gold and silver, and the bankers' and money-brokers' offices are besieged by jnultitudes." n The Hungarians have been as successful on the Lower as they have been on the Upper Danube. They bombarded and burned Carlovitz on the 16th, and they have sent large quantities of arms and munitions of war from Agram to Sem- lin, by Sisacok. Perczel entered Kerkovah without meeting the least resistance. 0 The ministerial journal, the Austrian Lloyds, says:- We must evacuate Pesth and Buda, raise the siego of Comorn, abandon all the forts and strong places in Hungary —in fine. assemole all the Imperial forces on one point, to obtain a decisive result. If we are victorious, we shall soon reg-am ail we have lost, and we ar.e sure that we shall care- fully preserve what we shall thus regain." The Wiener Zeitung publishes a Government proclamation on the subject of the Hungarian war, in which, after sum- ming up the events since the commencement of the war, the Austrian Cabinet protests that the fate of Hungary must have its decision on the field of battle, and that the Austrian I'S Ministers allI (I encrals will act exclusively with this view of the question. "Our enemies (these are the words of the proclamation) must be fought with. It is necessary to rout them, and to annihilate them, and until this shall have been accomplished no attention whatever can be paid to anything besides this grand object." 0 The proclamation concludes by stating that most ener- getic measures are being taken to attain the object in view, and that no bulletin will be published, nor the further move- ments of the Imperial forces divulged to the public, and that the Austrian patriots ought to be satisfied with the know- ledge that a gallant army, led by able generals, defends the cause of Austria in Hungary. The JBreslau Zeitung contains the following important intelligence:- I hasten to inform you, that in consequence of the total defeat of the Imperial army between Gran and the Danube, when 12,000 Austrians fell under the swords and bayonets of the Hungarians, and on their retreat fell a prey to the waves, General Welden is compelled to an immediate eva- cuation of Pesth and Ofen. The greatest disorder has pre- vailed the whole day. In a placard" Welden calls upon the two great cities to grant a perfectly safe retreat to the rem- nants of the Imperial army. Report says that Kossuth, by desire of the city, has granted the Imperialists an armistice of 48 hours for evacuating Pesth and Ofen. The Hunga- rians are to make their entry to-morrow. The greatest joy prevails there." The Cologne Gazette, in an article dated Vienna, the 24th, saysAfter this defeat of the Imperial troops, there can be no further question, at present, at least, of a concentra- tion of the Austrian army." The same journal says the Hungarians are preparing to make head against the Russians. The Diet of Debreczin has ordered a new levy of 200,000 recruits, 100,000 of them to be raised in Transylvania.
