CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

bottom of the stream, with fewer earthly particles. Hatred of Religion is engendered in many hearts by the anti-Christian wealth and offices of its lordly functionaries. France, Germany, and Italy herself, have trimmed and curtailed her phylacteries ; in England and Ireland the old pattern has only been disfigured, and the massive bullion carefully covered over. Thirty generals and thirty admirals, the saviours of our country, divide among them a smaller revenue than the Bishop of London has been enjoying for many years.
Abuses less intolerable have excited the insurrectionary spirit in France and Germany. Taxes are more intelligible than principles ; taxes, in one form or another, have shaken half the world for threequarters of a century. When we fall, it will be after a dreadful struggle against taxation. This idea brings me to the point I would arrive at. The weight of taxation has a second time put into movement the revolutionary wheel in France. Happily for us, as we may think, she is too poor for war. But is it more difficult for half a million of soldiers to find sustenance in Poland and Lithuania than in the streets of Paris ? Is it more difficult to conciliate nations by kindness than kings by treaties ? Are sympathies confined to the higher classes only? War is begun between the few on one side and the many on the other. Whether it shall be a war of extermination for the weaker party, a month probably will decide. The weaker party, pray let me tell you, is not that whose blood now blackens the pavement of Messina : is not that which the hounds of a murderous prince are licking off his fingers at Vienna. The brave are fallen, but not all the brave. Dreadful will be the hour of retribution and atonement. Germans, Italians, French, perceive the impossibility of tolerating the fraudulence of princes. All we can hope is exemption from retaliation, abstinence from the infliction of bodily pains and penalties. Nothing would be more imprudent, or indeed more intemperate, than to let loose the dogs of war from the royal kennels. Had I a voice in any country on the continent, I would say, "Confide no longer ; but be clement; be generous ; give your princes a chance and a choice of becoming honest men; grant them a sufficiency to educate their children well, and to maintain them handsomely, far away from the land of their birth, and from the breath of evil counselers."
