CHAPTER I
PUBLIC LATTERS 1838-1840

but at last we are reduced to our old regimen : the ministers find bubble, and the people squeak.
When you pluck and pinion your own defaulters, all that was granted to them in any shape ought to be applied to the comforts and instruction of your poor. No doubt you smile at so inadequate a project ; and well you may, if nothing lies beyond it. This was only suggested as the most obvious, and the first and foulest stumbling-block of offence. Furthermore, then, let every diocese in Ireland have both its Protestant and its Roman Catholic bishop. Let each enjoy the ample pay of twelve hundred pounds a year; a larger sum than is the average stipend of the bishops in France and Italy; a larger sum, by more than double, than is granted to our generals and admirals after a half-century of service, after a life of danger, after a separation from friends and families, after a loss of health and limbs. Let the total of church lands be sold in small divisions, year after year, to supply a fund for schools and colleges, in which morality and religion shall be taught more effectually than invidious wealth can teach them ; these being the objects for which all forms of worship were established. Thereto might be added whatever is above five hundred a year in church livings. I see no more injustice or hardship in this curtailment, than in reducing to half-pay the officers of the army and navy. We do not say to them, "You shall enjoy your full pay during your lives; but your successors shall receive only half-pay": why should we then to another profession, as much under the head of the church as these are under the head of the army? Is it because the one is remunerated in silver and gold, the other in corn and cattle ? Whoever is paid by the nation may lawfully be paid in such proportions as the nation shall appoint.
Livings have been subdivided ; why may not bishoprics ? In fact, the only reformed church is the Papal; and thousands are daily taking refuge with her, from the avarice, fraud, and hypocrisy of her blustering, bloated sister-in-law ; from the sale of whose false curls and pigments and perfumery, not only might enough be added to schools and poorer benefices, but much would remain, which might be applicable to noble plans of colonization. No doubt can be entertained that our gracious Queen would joyfully contribute to them her extensive possessions in Ireland, from which Majesty
