PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

Republic, he should ever remain faithful to the duties imposed on him by their votes and by the will of the Assembly. " I would devote myself entirely, without any concealed view, to the consolidation of a Republic, ,vise- by its laws, honest by its intention, and powerful by its arts." On December 20 he was proclaimed by the National Assembly, President of the French Republic, having been elected by a majority of four million odd votes against those given to General Cavaignac. Landor's remarks on the election were published in the Examiner of December 23:

Remarks on Me Election of Louis Napoleon.
It is improbable that the President of the French Republic will be influenced in his policy by a foreigner. But another thing is equally improbable, which is, that any Frenchman of integrity will direct his counsels. Among the public men of that country there are several who have distinguished themselves by abilities and address. Guizot, the most honest of the late King's ministers, was guilty of such gross prevarication, in regard to the marriage of the Infanta, as would exclude a private character from all respectable society. Of those who remain in their country few are exempt from the charge of versatility, and some have accumulated great wealth by dishonourable means.
Under the Empire, military men became the possessors of prodigious fortunes by permitted rapine. Junot, Massena, and Soult, exhausted the several countries they invaded : under the Bourbons, of each branch, the stock-exchange was the area of the more silent plunderers, and the domestic dog devoured as largely as the wolf. Marceau, Brune, Bessieres, and several others, have left behind them names which redeem in some degree the honour of France, and stand forth in bold relief from among the hideous ruins of her Revolution. Cavaignac was thought worthy of this select and august assemblage. If Louis Napoleon should demand his services, such a step would tend to the consolidation of his authority. At
