became a naturalized citizen of Switzerland. He joined the extreme radical party, and edited Der
schweizerische Republikaner (The Swiss Republican) for them. In 1844, he established a
publishing house at Zurich, and issued several scientific works and many political pamphlets, many
of which were suppressed in Germany. In 1846, he moved to Dresden. Upon the Revolution of
1848, he became a leader of the democrats, and was elected a member of the Frankfurt

Sisterdale, Texas.[1][2] In 1850, he went to Nicaragua, Santa F, and Chihuahua as correspondent

Germany in 1857, and efforts were made to expel him from Frankfurt, but he was protected on the

became a Federalist leader. From 1862 to 1873, he edited newspapers in Vienna and Munich. In
1873 he was appointed consul of the German Empire at Smyrna and in 1876 was transferred to
Algiers. He retired in 1890.
