CHAPTER IV
PUBLIC LATTERS 1850-1852

forgotten that he was born among the virtuous, and that once he was one. Not within the circle but within the crescent of a century, our country had contained a greater number of great men than ever appeared anywhere in an equal period. We wonder that we can find no traces or resemblances of them now. Tergiversation and trickery are paramount. Little do we seem aware that honesty is part of intellect. It is always the best part ; too often the only one. Bacon had no room for it in the vast palace of his mind ; Coke threw it up into a corner, where nothing of it was seen thro' his narrow and grated window of five-inch panes. Dustmen sweep it, early in the morning, out of great houses. Poor writers pick it up, and throw it aside for anything more tempting. Improvident poets have often an allotment of it for their patrimony ; but they scratch it into sore places when they suffer the flea-bites of jealousy, which induce a distemper not preventible by vaccination nor curable by sulphur. Politicians are equally subject to it; but they resolutely urge the knife and cautery, until they have extirpated the hard tubercle of honesty and salved over the cicatrice. We have seen reformers, who have somewhat of a name to rest upon, abjuring their principles and promises, protecting scourgers and murderers, and driving to desperation the most industrious and the most peaceable of colonists. Proofs of these facts are collected, examined, found undeniable, found manifold ; Parliament knows of their existence, knows that many have been garbled, many withheld ; and what does Parliament? goes grousing ! Long may it remain upon the moors ; may it remain there until the people of England have recovered their senses and their spirit, and have decided that inflictors of torture, and inciters to rebellion, may be and ought to be impeacht of high crimes and misdemeanours.
