CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

never yet has spoken, and never will at any time speak plainly. In vain does it repose in the arms of two emperors. They will treat it as our Richard is said to have treated the two children in the Tower. Legions of Honour must begin to march in a contrary direction, and demolish cities without Pax Tloba'scuan.
First of these exhibitions of lying was the declared fact, that the French Revolution was brought about by a few hundred miscreants from Marseilles : second is the declared fact that a few foreigners (not even so many as hundreds) domineered over Rome. If the first of these declared facts was well founded, to what a state of degradation and turpitude must not only the French nobility, but the French of all classes have fallen ! If the second, as M. Montalembert and M. Tocqueville have asserted, how will they venture to look in the face of any Frenchman who fought against Rome ? What ! a few foreigners kill a thousand or two of their braves des braves, and drive ten thousand from before the walls ! A few foreigners lead five thousand republicans out of the city to fight another day ! A few foreigners (and after they had disappeared) strike such terror into the citizens of Rome, that, knowing not what they were about, and losing all sense of salutary fear, they protested against the occupation of their city by their saviours ! I have seen no programme of hymn or anthem to be sung at the Pope's return; but if MM. 'I'ocqueville and Montalembert wish to sing one perfectly in accord with the service, let them, after these two facts, intone with Voltaire, like them a great Zealot,
" Descends du haut des cieux, auguste Verite !"

The Pope has lost her, and sadly wants her back again. France saw her last with Saint Louis on the shore of Damietta, and seems to care little about her. Paris could find a prostitute to personate the Goddess of Reason ; if she looks narrowly into her hospitals, she may perhaps find another, almost as fearless of ridicule, to represent the Goddess of Liberty. The likeness will at once be recognised, and all will cry "patuit dea."
