CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

Things to be Done.
While the French army and navy continued in a state of inactivity, even the pens and tongues of the Provisional Government were quiescent. If the Republican fleet, already in commission and afloat, forbore to sail up the Adriatic, and to lend its aid to the Venetian States, yet moral influence at least might have been exerted on those of Hungary. Without the co-operation of the Hungarians, the difficulty of relieving Poland is extremely great. It is reported that, after declaring their own independence, they are resolved on annihilating, if they can, the independence of Lombardy. Such a report is incredible. Have the Italians injured them? And what merit can Austria claim toward them, that they who resisted her domination should assist her in her aggression? She has absorbed into her coffers all the gold and silver coin of the country, and forced upon it her base metal: she has cooped up her industrious youth in fortresses, and her intelligent patriots in garrisons. If it was lawful and just to break asunder the ancient ties which bound a great kingdom to a Duchy, it was surely just and reasonable for Lombardy to sever ties more recent and more galling, which fastened her to a nation the most alien, in language, manners, and reminiscences.
Politicians use no means to enlighten friends or enemies. But France and Germany are now under the guidance of honest citizens, of active and thoughtful men, licking up no crumbs from under a royal table, but standing up at the side of the royal chair, and suffering no poison to enter the royal lips. Let them show to Hungary the danger of leaning on the rotten throne so recently made vacant, and the firm support she would receive from Italy in return for mere neutrality. The upright are strong, and they only. If she sides with Austria, she will sink again into subjection : if she sides with Italy and Poland, she stands on ground that will never give way under her.
Little time is left for her decision. Within three months, by the season of the hay-harvest, Russia will pour her Cossacks along the Danube, even to Vienna, unless the Diet awakens to sane policy, and marches in the right direction. Force hath been too generally and too exclusively opposed to force. There are various tribes of
