CHAPTER IV
PUBLIC LATTERS 1850-1852

of Newfoundland, to the utter exclusion of the French, who had been excluded for twenty years. At present they give a bounty to their sailors engaged in it ; and we give the same sailors a greater ; we freely give them all that they can take away from us. This fishery is more important to our power than whatever else of dominion we possess in the whole circuit of the globe. The commerce of China must for the most part fall soon into your hands : that of India will follow gradually. Within a period which some already born may live to see, your territory, your United States, however lax the Union, will, with interminably vast accretions and perpetual immigrations, contain a population far exceeding the census of Europe. You are destined to be the most numerous people, try also to be the greatest (which is quite another thing) that ever existed on the earth. Be wiser than we have been; and prepare the neighbouring nations for union with you, by propagating among them your laws and language. Our bigger boys will have been playing at football until the bladder shall burst under the closing kicks of the contending parties. Rome had only one in her aristocracy; we have two : it is easy to foresee a coalition and its result. I am not among those who rejoice at it; for I think our commonwealth might with little improvement be made better, if not more durable than yours. Let us be strenuous in consolidating, not in overturning, each other's work. A few weeks ago Englishmen and Americans spoke universally, and with equal emphasis, of a strict alliance; and now, it appears, we are quarrelling, like butchers' dogs, under the hustings of Mr Webster. Presidency with him stands before Probity. Remember, he insisted in like manner on our receding from our
boundary line of Oregon, believing, as he well might, in the utter ignorance of our officials, and having the map of the territory under his own eyes. Well therefore did he know our right to what he was at that moment claiming from us. But there is one thing which he did not know quite so well ; he did not know that an honest man is honest in all capacities, honest in private, honest in public. He would not appropriate to himself a bank-note left incautiously on the
table of a tavern ; he would not filch a handkerchief from your pocket ; he would not defraud you of your winnings on returning from a race-course; he would not bring forward false witnesses to swear that a piece of land, left to you by your father, had contracted
