CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

Papal Commissioners, having entered the city at the end of July. A proclamation was published by them on August 1, 1849, announcing that Ministers would be appointed to control internal affairs ; foreign affairs being directed by Cardinal Antonelli. The following letter from Landor appeared in the Examiziey of August 25 :

The Pope.
Saint Peter, we are credibly informed, smote off the ear of the High-Priest's servant ; he seems now to have smitten off the ear of the High-Priest himself. Soldiers, who had landed from Africa, tried to catch it, and scrambled on the ground for it ; meanwhile a gang of cunning old thieves crept among their legs and carried it away in triumph. Jesuits and Cardinals now possess the relick, and blow into it shrilly from morning to night, playing a thousand odd tricks with it. Ashamed of being seen in publick with no ear belonging to him, the High-Priest claps both hands against his headgear, and cries Make room for the robbers; and they turn a pretty penny by showing they have the High-Priest's ear in their possession.
Joseph Wolff, the self-sacrificer, who affronted death and the despot of Bokhara, in the shadowy and uncertain hope of saving two men he never saw, brings Peter and Pius face to face. Certainly Peter hath somewhat the advantage over Pius, who, in the words of Wolff, " exhorted his children in France to unsheath the sword against his children in Rome." Why was this ? It was not because they resisted his paternal authority in teaching them the duties of religion, but because, having now grown up to maturity, they preferred in the management of their estates the laws of jurisconsults to the decretals of theologians, and believed that the business of priests was very distinct, very different and alien, from the business of council-board and camp.
The children of France are too much in the habit of carrying crackers and serpents about them, which sometimes have blown their pockets to pieces, and singed their faces miserably. Indeed they have always been addicted to every kind of mischief. As among the children of Sparta there was a merit in thieving, if
