CHAPTER IV
PUBLIC LATTERS 1850-1852

about them, who, if they had fought against Haynau, fought against the invader of their country, fought for the laws of the land, fought for their wives and children ? What excuse is there for scourging in the publick market-place the most delicate of girls and mothers ? Ages have past over our heads since such atrocities were committed in Europe, and only one man has been found capable of committing them. Deservedly has this wretch been designated in all languages as the hangman Haynau. Is it credible that he has the audacity and impudence to venture into this country; to walk openly in our streets ? If Marat and Robespierre and Couthon had been displaced and exiled, is ours the land in which they would have claimed the rights of hospitality ? Yet they were only the engines of the laws, which, many as were the innocent struck down by them, many the noble, many the aged, many the young, spared torture, spared degredation.
I think it probable that the gentleman in the Times, who defends on every occasion the exercise of arbitrary power, may receive a reprimand from Petersburg. For, the disgrace of Haynau (this is the term in Courts, where turpitude has no such meaning) came, like all other Continental movements, from that quarter. Of existing rulers, certainly the Emperor of Russia is the most able ; and, when ever he permits a cruelty under his subject crowns, he ensures to himself popularity by compassing in due time the humiliation of the subordinate actor. He was resolved that the youth he protected at Vienna should lose for ever his hold on the Hungarians, while he took himself off a little and stood aloof, breathing a tepid air of clemency.
There is much to be admired in the character of this potentate, but there is greatly more to be feared. He is guided by one sole star, and never turns his eyes away from it Variable as the winds are the counsels of every nation round, while his are conducted by calm sagacious men along the same line of polity from age to age. Whatever he meditates he effects. He knows that the hour of action is not to be accelerated by putting on the hands of his watch. Omnipotent not only at Athens, but through Athens at Munich ; Omnipotent at Vienna, at Berlin, at Stockholm, at Copenhagen, he excites, or suppresses, or modulates, or varies the discordant cries of France in every Department. The eastern empire rises up again,
