CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

imprudent to oppose the will of France when she seized on Otaheite, and plundered and expelled our countrymen, its civilisers and protectors, with what assurance can we forbid her to recover that which was torn from her by violence? It is as little our policy to intermeddle in the conflicts or combinations of France with the other powers of Europe, as it is the policy of America, from which the provident and virtuous Washington with his dying breath dissuaded her. A'Ien equally provident, equally patriotic, if any such existed, might be unable to check and coerce the pruriency of the impotent in their lust for war ; but it is the duty of all who deprecate its calamities, and foresee its consequences, to exert their best energies against such woeful infatuation.
France must employ her armies ; and it is better that she should employ them elsewhere than against us. If she restores the integrity of Poland, she fights our battle, she enforces the sanctity of our treaties. If she protects Turkey, she accomplishes a work which we in vain attempted. She must do both, whether we will it or will it not.
The balance of Europe, after many oscillations, will adjust itself, without a finger of ours under it or upon it. Sicily and Egypt will maintain their independence, partly by their own strength, and partly by the jealousy of others. Denmark, our most important ally, has nothing to fear from the blustering fanatic who assailed her lately ; and it will be time enough for us to protect her, when an enemy no less insidious and far more powerful shall attempt to burst through the Belt. We have only to abstain ; a difficult thing to ministers who have dependents and supporters to provide for. But the people of England, who love quiet homes and plentiful tables, will allow no restless man to throw a firebrand into his neighbour's house, having seen and paid for the damage, or to shovel shiploads of gold upon the coast of Ireland, to be scrambled for indiscriminately by poor and rich.
Historians will record the present Parliament as the most inefficient in our annals. Manifold have been the contrivances for warming the House ; but the prevalent gas appears to have been the gas which excites to laughter. Let the honourable members shake with mirth, while the mirth is innocent, but let them abstain from the practical joke of turning our pockets inside-out at their Christmas
