CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

them, always plundered, always trampled on and cast off, continued to look toward them as protectors. Napoleon bartered Italy for a worthless wife ; his nephew gives her up for an imperial crown under a papal consecration. He conciliated both Austria and Russia by abstaining from the consolidation of freedom throughout all the states of Europe, which might have been effected by the pressure of his foot, by only one step onward. And what has he gained by this alliance with despotism ? The hatred of all free nations, the contempt even of the enslaved, not only of those who were reduced to this condition under his eye and his connivance, but also of the wretches born to servitude, the very nails and rivets of the chain that now encompasses the globe.
To what a height of glory might the President of France have attained if he had sprung up with her in her ascent toward freedom, if he had seconded and directed her energies, if he had abstained but from falsehood and fraud. History neither will nor can dissemble them : the eternal city bears the eternal testimony. The words of Niazzini are not the words of an angry zealot, but are registered in the archives of every honest heart. He accuses no man without the proof of all he utters : and there was a time when such an accusation, so confirmed, would have driven the delinquent beyond the pale of honourable men's society. A bold front and swaggering gait may reduce the cowardly to silence in presence of the ferocious ; not an inch further. It has been tried of late against the Americans, and with what success ? A receiver of stolen goods is defended in his roguery by a French envoy. The French envoy is requested by the American Government to reconsider the propriety of his protection ; the American Government is answered with the same insolence as the Roman was on its calm and just expostulation. The matter was submitted by the American Government to the French Cabinet. The French Cabinet defends at once both the insolence and the fraud. Passports are delivered to the envoy ; he returns to France.
Arrogance is broken into foam when it dashes on the Western shores of the Atlantick. America knows equally her interests and her dignity. Averse to war, averse to the politicks of Europe, she is greatly more than a match against the united Powers of that Continent. France owes her money; and she will have it, although,
