Summary/Abstract: The last issue of the Croatian journal Branislav appeared in Belgrade in August 1845. Further publishing of this journal was stopped because the Austrian authorities dicovered the channel used for the distribution of this journal across the Civil Croatia and Croatian Military border region. This turn of event was made possible by the unveiling of the Hotel Lambert agents and by the treachery of agent Antoni Rieth. In spring of 1844 the Hotel Lambert developed interest for the plan of uprisinig in the Galicia province. The plan was made by Antoni Rieth and it also considered the possible uprising in Slovakia and Croatia. In fact Rieth worked for the Austrian authorities and as a consequence the Austrian police discovered the network of Lambert hotel agents active in the Balkan peninsula.
