CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

who crowded to see a conjuror leap into a quart-bottle. If we have had our SVilkeses and Burdetts, our Wilsons and Broughams, we have also had our Romillies and our Benthams. In one House we have still a Clarendon, in the other a P'Iolesworth. Be amused, but never indignant, at the spectacle of our public men ; at restlessness without activity, at strides without progress, pelted from below by petulance without wit. A wider and fairer scene is lying now before you, a scene of your own creation, under the guidance and influence of Almighty God. Merciful and just by nature, and enlightened, as the powerful of intellect always are, by the continuous lamps delivered in succession from past and passing ages, you will find them shine clearer by contraction of space and adaptation to circumstances.
You have swept away the rotten house of Hapsburg. It would be an idle trick to pursue the vermin that nestled and prowled among its dark recesses, behind its moth-eaten tapestries and throughout its noisome sewers. But there is no idleness in following the guidance of the most strenuous and most provident conquerors. Sylla, Julius, and Augustus Caesar, distributed the forfeited estates of their enemies among the defenders of their cause. The justice of their cause was questionable, the justice of yours is not In our country, William of Normandy broke up the estates of the vanquished and rendered them powerless for revolt. Elizabeth and Cromwell and William of Nassau, our three greatest sovrans, pursued the same policy with the same success. In Hungary there are immense tracts of land imperfectly cultivated, and forfeited by the defection and treason of the rich and indolent proprietors. Surely no time should be lost in the distribution of this national property among the nation's defenders. Larger and smaller allotments should be holden forth as the incentives and the rewards of valour. This was promised in France by the revolutionists of that country ; but what promise was ever kept by France, under any of her Governments, to any nation? least of all perhaps to her own. The Hungarians are morally the antipodes of the French ; the Hungarians are calmly brave, consistently free, strictly veracious, immutably just, unostentatiously honourable. The French, if they attempt an act of perfidy, which they often do, and fail in it, which they seldom do, feel deeply wronged: their honour (peculiar to them) requires them to salve the affront with blood.
