CHAPTER IV
PUBLIC LATTERS 1850-1852

with greater vigour and surer hopes than Constantine in Byzantium could impart to it, and is now overshadowing and overawing the dislocated and chaotic West. Nicholas wills the abolition of republicks ; France swears to maintain them ; and instantly throws down her own that she may the more readily subvert the Roman. In the hand of Napoleon his half-dozen royalets were never more pliable manikins than the nephew is in the hand of Nicholas. It will use him for a time, as for a time it used Haynau. In England, it seems, this discarded butcher, stript by Austria of his apron and cleaver, is not to be touched, but is, on the contrary, to be respected. And why ? Because he has come upon our shores !
Unquestionably the hangman will find defenders here in England : but the defenders of such a wretch, whether in print or Parliament, are even worse than himself. Criminals who have been put into the pillory for much smaller offences, and indeed for one only, have undergone thereby the sentence of the law ; yet public indignation pelts them ; and the press acquiesces. It1r Baron Rothschild calls the unfortunate man his friend. Jews are most peculiarly citizens of the world : Baron Rothschild among the rest : but Baron Rothschild, the friend of Haynau, has a better right to be a citizen of the world than a citizen of London ; and a better to be a citizen of London than its representative. Never let us hear again of the indignities the scourger and hangman has undergone ; nor of extenuating comparisons between his crimes and the crimes of others.
The distinguished writer in the Times is indignant that a person of Haynau's age should be scouted and insulted. There are crimes of which age and infirmity itself are an aggravation. Age ought to be exempt from the violence of the passions : age ought to be lenient, considerate and compassionate : age should remember its past impetuosities and rejoice in their extinction : age must often have seen around its own domestick hearth the irrepressible ebullition of generous emotions, and sometimes of ungenerous. The nearer to the grave we are, the more should we be on a level with the humanities, and the more observant of those fellow-men whom we are leaving on this side of it. There is folly in calling it an act of cowardice to drive away an assassin, whatever be his age or his condition. Grey hairs are venerable only on the virtuous. We
