The well-known Polish General, Wenceslaus Rzewuski, devoted the later years of his busy and chequered career to literary, and especially to linguistic, pursuits. He is said to have spoken the learned tongues as well and as freely as his native Polish, and to have been master, moreover, of all the leading modern languages of Europe. the great Oriental Journal published at Vienna, Fimdgruben des Orients, which is really what its title implies, a mine of Oriental learning, was for many years under his superintendence.
