The Russians, we are glad to say, have not been

content with congratulating themselves on the fall of the fortress, but with the true military instinct have instantly followed it up by a more vigorous offensive in the Carpathians and along the whole Hungarian front. A battle which will probably be known in history as the Battle of the Lupkow Pass is still raging. It is believed, however, that the balance of victory is now decidedly inclining to our allies, and that the end will be a military achievement of real importance. Already some six thousand Austrian prisoners have been taken.
