CHAPTER V
PUBLIC LATTERS 1853-1855

their strength and union? There are fainter hopes in that quarter ; for the potentates there are bound by family ties to Russia, and are mounted on Cossac saddles, and wear gilt spurs fabricated at Petersburg. The English, who hate injustice and oppression, will show that family ties never shall hold them down at the footstool of the throne. They are loyal in the truest and highest sense of loyalty, and would rush into the palace were there need, to rescue their Queen from any species of degredation. The worst of any would be a secret connivance at manifest wrong, and placing a pure hand within a wholesale murderer's.
The Tzar has rushed into wrong with his eyes open, and remains there sword in hand. His adherents tell us that he must fight his way out again or feel humiliated. When he lied and prevaricated, he ought to have felt so. The Turks (to use their own phrase) will make him "eat dirt" in making him eat his own words. Nothing of what is disingenuous and dishonest could unite the English people so firmly to the French. Common interest, no doubt, would have its weight, even in lighter matters : but here the interest is not common between the two parties only; each of the two is stript for the race of glory on a plain and solid ground, with smaller nations standing round, afraid to enter the lists, and with bosoms swelling but not daring to applaud. How many of them are crowded into one house of bondage ! and shall none be taken out? Shall none be left in his own home ? Shall a single hand grasp the throat of twenty nations, reduce men to the condition of beasts, palisading them in a deep forest, out of which there is no escape but the cord which drags them into the field of battle ? There indeed, they again see the faces of their countrymen, of their fathers, their brothers, their sons : there the homicide makes the parricide : there he commits in one single day ten thousand crimes, any one of which would bring to the gallows the most ignorant of his subjects.
Whatever, as a free and independent man, bound to no party, swayed by no personal interests, I may have written about Napoleon the Third, never have I doubted his sagacity, his courage, his perseverance. Since the Government of Richelieu, of Mazarin, and of Cromwell, never has there been a ruler over any portion of mankind more firm and temperate. I deplore the success of his enterprise against the regenerate Romans : but I confidently hope
