CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

present the declared policy of both is the same : either of them within a few months would be constrained by circumstances to deviate widely from it: the pride, the dignity, the interests of France, permit no apathy, no procrastination. It is easier to march for ten hours than to stand on one leg for a quarter. The quarter has sounded ; France is tired and uneasy; she will on. Again I repeat it, we have nothing to do with her movements on the Continent. We never interposed when Russia violated the treaty of Vienna ; we never interposed when the most bestial of a bestial race over-lay and stifled the first-born of Sicilian Freedom. Woe betide the mischievous meddler who presumes to tell France that she is bound, and she alone, to abide by the very treaties which insolent despots and shameless perjurors have broken. If she collects her old allies around her, she will foster them to their mutual benefit. She will not indeed dare to look Messina in the face, but she will turn the eyes of all upon Oporto. Pacific as are the declarations of Louis Napoleon, mild and beneficent as his temper is, honourable and just as all his actions and projects may be, it lies not within his power to control the

which writhe and roar not only throughout France, but over the whole continent of Europe.
Is there any man so silly as to believe that any ruler of France, emperor, king, or president, will forego the ancient influence of that Power over the destinies of Turkey? Is there any politician who calculates that a partition of that country with Russia would be so advantageous to France as its integrity ? It appears to me that, at present, there will be only one accession of territory on her confines. She may permit the King of Sardinia to be King of Lombardy, on his ceding that island to her. The kingdom of Italy may be offered by the people to a Bonaparte, not under the direct influence, but not without the close alliance, of France. We may be unwilling that such additions should be made to her territories, but we have no right whatever to interfere, no more indeed than we had to resist the occupation of California by the Americans, which conquest will hereafter lay the foundation of a vast and powerful empire, to predominate at no distant period in the farthest east.
