PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

be taught how much better it is to have every wise man for a counsellor, every virtuous man for a friend, and every brave man for a sentinel ? If they refuse to learn so easy and so necessary a rudi ment, they, like other dull and refractory ones, must be scourged into it. They have thrown aside the pen that signed their perfidies, and have taken up arms and halters against those who trusted them. If their own people have been traitorously abused by them, what confidence can neighbours, can rivals, can enemies place in them, after compulsory cessions and extorted treaties ?
It is equally the duty and interest of France to abstain from interference in Italy and Germany, until her aid is demanded. This aid, indeed, she promised in the commencement of the struggle, and only thus conditionally. At that time, however, the Russians had not entered the principalities on the Danube, threatening to inundate all Europe, and again to surmount the Alps. If she now refuses the aid she then promised, she herself will want it. Let her press forward while the giant is whirling the sling round his head, and not wait until the stone descends. Russia is now on the Danube; she will presently be on the Elbe and on the Rhine, and, before the heats of summer are over, it may again be a pleasant exercise for the Cossack cavalry to swim across the Seine. The Russian treasury is the only one in Europe which abounds in the precious metals : Russia is the only power that works her steel with gold. Before her armies march, a rail-road of this quality is laid down for them. Is she herself quite unassailable by arms of the same temper? Are no chiefs of Tartary to be subdued by it? no Khan? no Hetman ? Surely the experiment is worth a trial by those whom it most concerns. But we English, I repeat it, however much, in fcommon with Europe, we may benefit by the disruption of those asces which hold so tremendous an axe, must abstain from the severest and most important conflict in which the nations of Europe have ever been engaged. It began with the cannonade of Vienna: it will terminate on the Don. Who knows but, in twenty years, colonies of French and Irish may erect and garrison fortresses on
