Cologne, April 12. We are publishing a second edition today, not to inform our readers of yesterday’s basically quite unimportant debates at Frankfurt but to report something much more important, namely that the Magyars have gained a significant victory over the imperial army and that the imperial army, beaten all along the line, has withdrawn to below the walls of Pest.
