CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

of Rome, with the Colosseum and the Capitol as trinkets to play with, it was recollected that an equal piece of absurdity and impudence had been formerly imposed on the Roman people by another Emperor in the nomination of his horse for consul. But, indignant as the people might have been, they accepted the appointment at the hands of their capricious master; and indeed it was less disgraceful to be under the symbol of energy and war, ` caput acris equi,' than of incompetence and imbecility. Whether the present race would have endured the domination of a creature half-Austrian and half-French, is uncertain : certain it is that they would rather tolerate such a foreign hybrid than the more monstrous one of halfpriest half-prince. No power on earth can pretend to place a sovereign over a nation, and least of all that power which in thirty years expelled from its own territories three of its own dynasties.

The French army entered Rome on July 3, 1849, Garibaldi having withdrawn that morning. The key of one of the gates had been sent to the Pope at Gaeta, who in reply congratulated General Oudinot on his " triumph over the enemies of human society." The following letter was published in the Examiner
of July 7 :

It would have been wiser and better if the Jesuitical and Papistical faction in France had lookt a little to the consequences of their hostility against the city and citizens of Rome. Duplicity, falsehood, violence, are asserted by the greater part of them to be allowable, and even laudable, if they promote the interests of the Church. Setting the question quite aside, whether in any case they are laudable, whether in any case they are allowable, let us submit to the consideration of these gentlemen, civil, military, and ecclesiastical, whether the Redeemer of mankind ever promulgated or sanctioned such a doctrine ; whether he taught his followers that massacre, pillage, conflagration, rape, were necessary for sowing the
