CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

occurrences in France, at the close of the last century, are only the Preface. Day after day it was prognosticated, in courts and parliaments, that another campaign, another battle, would terminate the whole affair.
England lighted the forge and blew the bellows, and fabricated the armour of France. Factions were tearing her in pieces : England declared war, and united them. Her minister Pitt saw this contingency, and represented it to his sovran. " Go to war or ;o out," was the reply : we know the consequences. The most prudent nation in the world became the most improvident, the richest became the poorest. The armies of Italy and Germany learnt in France what the French armies had learnt in America. Before long-after many defeats, however, and many victories-princes found it necessary to promise free constitutions. It was never their intention to grant them, and they all descended to the grave amidst their violated pledges. Every prince was suspicious not only of his subjects, but of his neighbours, for every one felt conscious of his own dishonesty. Hence numerous standing armies pressed upon the people in every country. Weary of war, sick of hope deferred, distrustful of their rulers, and galled by new debts upon the shoulders of old, at the first signal of insurrection in France, a simultaneous cry against fraudulence and despotism burst forth in all the languages of Europe. Italy heaved off from her bosom the bloated incubus ; and Austria showed the world that among many crapulous, many distorted, she had healthy children, and never to be corrupted by indolence and sensuality. But those standing armies, the weight of which brought about all the revolutions, stood apart from their fellow-citizens, murdered many, and drove more into exile.
What occurred at Vienna is about to occur at Berlin; and Russian armies are marching to the frontiers of Germany in order to subjugate the refractory. Can the honour or the interest of France permit this aggression? Will she lose the present opportunity of conciliating, or rather of recovering, the goodwill of those nations which an ungenerous, ungrateful, and unwise leader fatally betrayed ? Impossible. Despotism and Republicanism are coming face to face. The conflict will be terrible in the fields of Hungary and Poland. Happy are we in England, whom neither duty nor passion urge to
