CHAPTER V
PUBLIC LATTERS 1853-1855

onward march of their sons. At the present hour it is not only the Polander, beguiled of his inheritance, and derided in open court by the diplomatist who held his brief; it is not only the Hungarian scourged out of his homestead, with his old laws broken and tied about his neck; it is not only the Mussulman who refuses to acknowledge Tzar Nicholas for God; it is not only the Circassian, our Creator's most perfect masterpiece, that is now rising up against the homicide. Even the Prussian, even the Austrian, upon whose backs the cane falls naturally, are sulky at the knout. Another people, the highest once in military glory, is reminded of its marvellous exploits against Europe's most insidious and most formidable enemy.
The Russians, like ants, pursue invariably one beaten track. Crush thousands ; fresh thousands follow. What they do not consume, what they do not devastate, they undermine. There is no royal house whose sill appears to be high enough to keep them out ; and yet let us hope there is one. Charles and Gustavus still exist
in the memory of Scandinavia. King Oscar will remind his people on whose soil stands Petersburg, and upon the spot itself will point out to his army the legitimate boundary of Finland. There are survivors among the veterans who, under Klingspor, covered their invaded territory with Muscovite carcases, and saw with indignation its surrender. The Tzars pave the road to conquest with materials from the mines of Siberia. Other potentates use iron only ; the Tzars fuse their iron with gold. This is the secret of their laboratory ; here stands the insurance-office of their successes. They never won a battle against a civilized enemy with equal numbers and honorable arms. In the last thirty years they have lost two hundred thousand troops in the defiles of the Caucasus : above half the number died in hospitals. No great loss ! they were not serfs ; they were only Polanders ; refractory, rebellious, so well educated that they ought to have known better than to talk of country ! So well-built that they ought to be ashamed of weeping over her ! France gained few of her victories under Napoleon the First without the Polanders, and she may again stand in need of their co-operation. Is it then no interest of hers that they should be united and strong? stronger than they ever were, and an effective barrier against barbarism?
Germany lies more exposed : has Germany then less interest in
