CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

to the conqueror than to the conquered. To be lowered in morality is also to be lowered in prosperity. One falsehood or fraud injurious to a thousand people is as criminal as ten thousand frauds each injurious to one only. But the falsehoods and frauds committed recently against the Romans are injurious to millions, born and unborn, undermining the prosperity, blockading the progress, of many nations, and exploding to atoms what little was left of probity in France. Aggression accompanied by treachery not only breaks asunder all the bonds which have united, or might in future, the nation committing it from the nation wronged, but loosens all whereby every other near to her has been attached. The wounds inflicted by a just, a necessary, an honourable war, soon heal again ; but Spain holds up hers in the face of France, still fresh and rankling ; too faithful Poland scorns her worse ingratitude ; and the heart of Italy by manifold perjuries is lost to her for ever.
Occasionally there is something very ludicrous in the overshot of lying: for example, where a royalist and a papist, a priest and a publicist, tug and strain. The bow of Ulysses was fatal to the suitors who drew it. Dexterity is only to be acquired by quick sight and firm footing. Napoleon blundered incessantly ; but at every blunder (one excepted) there was a stroke and a leap that cleared it. Cunning as are the present French Ministers, for which quality the heterogeneous body seems to have been packed together, force is requisite to support their fallacies. Republics are raised by the people; and fall by the soldiery. The cork figures now on the table have no weight at bottom to keep them up in their places. Hand after hand will offer to steady them, but the end is a rap on the knuckles and an outcry. Violence, which acolyte and neophyte are now employing, will never keep either things or men in their places. Arrogance with strong muscles, which they want, sometimes looks very like authority : but sometimes also people have found out that the highest in stature are not invariably the most upright or the strongest. Few believe that the gentlemen who are actually in the President's service are disposed to serve him faithfully under the present form of government. Most of them are known to be desirous of another form and another head. Whatever they may aim at, the French Republic will be extinct before the termination of its third year.
