The Vienna papers report a "Socialist insurrection" as having - broken

out in the Ukraine, Podolia, and Volhynia, most of old Poland in fact. The insurgents have beaten the troops, and are murdering, burning, and plundering in all directions. This is, we presume, an agrarian outbreak such as has occurred several times in parts of Russia, and usually succeeds at first. The landowners are scattered and so are the troops, who are wearied by the simultaneous risings in so many places. No movement of the kind has ever succeeded against the vast force at the dis- posal of the Government, nor is it to he desired it should. The peasantry, especially in some districts, have grievances, but their

victory would begin with an extirpation of the civilised class. We do not know why they are called Socialists, for they are quite as like the Anti-renters, who at one time disturbed part of New York.
