PUBLIC LATTERS 1853-1855

of Muscovite dominion, and the stone which marked it should be replaced. Sweden is naturally the allie of France. Should Sweden, France, and England, or (what unhappily seems the more probable) should Sweden and France efficiently aid the Sultan, Russia may be deprived of all the spoliations drawn together in two centuries, and Europe again enjoy another thirty years of peace. On this condition, and on this only, can she hope it for three. The fertile soil of Russia, thus becoming less military and more industrious, will even then contain a population of forty millions, which Sweden, Poland and Hungary, the outworks of civilization, will find it difficult enough to keep within bounds. Let each of these have its own again ; let all of them have all that was ever theirs. Nothing short of this provision can ensure the tranquillity of Europe and arrest the career of revolutions. We can do now what if we now omit we shall never be able to do hereafter. We may crush by one war the germs of many. France is ready to offer a larger aid to Turkey than we are. There is no reason why we should be jealous of it. Sufficient we can afford by the fleet already sent out ; and we are under no necessity to man a single more vessel than were displayed last summer to amuse the Queen. The Sultan would be quite as much gratified by the same evolutions. We possess the power, and we ought to exercise it, of keeping the Tzar's navy within the Baltic, forbidding any ship of war to navigate the Euxine. By this prohibition, and by this alone, we can repress a domination formidable to two continents. Unless we strenuously insist upon it, we may be incapable of avoiding more dangerous hostilities, when Austria and Prussia will be to Nicholas what they were to Napoleon the First, and when perhaps France also may have an injury to resent.
There are persons who have lived for many years in high stations, and must have seen many changes, for better, for worse, in Court and Cabinet, yet who are ignorant all the while that subserviency is not loyalty, that hesitation is not caution, that timidity is not prudence, that secession is not security. We must scrape off the Remora from our keels now stationary at the entrance of the Euxine, and we must confine the Torpedo to our own waters. The Sultan deserves our active help ; he hands us back our protocols. He writes better than we do and speaks more wisely. His dignity and self-esteem forbid him to abandon his people. He knows what
