CHAPTER IV
PUBLIC LATTERS 1850-1852

of labourers might be employed in the cultivation of them, and millions of money turned into the Exchequer. Woods and Forests would no longer swamp it. The Church lands should also be sold, and the proceeds be devoted to the education of the people, as was first intended. Whether the bishops should be paid better than the judges, the generals, or the admirals, will presently be decided by the publick voice. The Crown should continue to receive as much as it now receives from its lands ; so should the Church : but the better part of the Church is the school-room, and next to it (as was formerly the case, until the Reformation) the hospital and poorhouse. I should be sorry to see our army or our navy much diminished. 'Ten or twelve regiments may advantageously be disbanded, if proper steps are taken in Ireland, and if a man as wise and temperate as Lord Clarendon rules that country. When I consider what unworthy men have been entrusted with Governments abroad by those at home, I must consider it an especial dispensation of Divine Providence that the people here in power committed such an oversight as his appointment. Let Ireland be placed, in all respects, on the same footing as England and Scotland; let her have her own church as well as her own bar, and let Irishmen be alone on the bench in each. Let the taxes and duties be identical : and then let it be declared an act of treason to attempt a dismemberment of the empire. The French Government acts prudently and discreetly in coaxing the priesthood. By its suppression of liberty in Rome, she exasperated a few honest men. How few are there anywhere to be exasperated by wrongs to others ! And it is questionable if the most ardent repealer in Ireland saw with any disapprobation the abolition of Roman independence and Italian freedom, in his veneration of a spiritual head, equally able to pardon and prompt to commit a perjury. The invasion of Rome under the mask of amity conciliated the whole papistical priesthood on the Continent, excepting in Rome itself, where the iniquities of its higher orders were seen and suffered daily. Even in free Belgium it was a subject of rejoicing; and it is only a reluctance to share in the national debt of France which withholds the Rhenish provinces from returning to her. Happily for Europe, her restless ambition will increase the weight of her debt, and render it every year more galling. Another revolution of the wheel will only sink it deeper in the slough
