Since that letter was printed in the last Ci-riziziv further disco-
veries have reached this side of the Atlantic, which very oppor-
timely hid me in proving the atrocious fact I want to prove.
- It has come to light that the British Goveriuurnt,--and ro-
member that in speaking of the action of “ England" I always
mean the “ Govemment,” not the English people, who in fact are
one of the cheated partieo-the English Government has been for
ten years in full posscasiori of the designs of Russiav-of all the
Russian desiwns so far as we know them everi ye has been in
ca d stars about the
abolition of the Turkish empire (and of course about a division of
the spoil), has even within the last year entered into “ a coniidontial
interchange of opinions with the Czar on this same subject, through
the British Ambassador at his Court ;-and that the result of this
friendly intcrchsrige of opinion, has been “ a correspondence of the
most friendly character between the present British Ministers orni
the Imperial Government."
, Further, it has come to light that the Czar pushed his armies
into the Turkish provinces, and urged his haughty demands upon
Turkey, in the full corifidencc that England knew and approved
all he was doing arid intending to do-a coriidence which was
not misplaced, for England has hitherto only restrained and in-
timidated the Turks, has done her bgst to kill their spirit and tie
their hands, and has gained for the Czar what he chiefly minted,
In another part of this number will be found the atlicitil Rus-
sian statement on the subject of the socrot negotiations. They
have not been denied. The British Goverrirncnt is only exaspe-
rated, not that any one should tax them with such paddy, but
t my misci-cant should be guilty of betraying cabinet secrcls :-
for I will do the English people the justice to say that it is inex-
podient to take them into conlidence upon such a plat. It is A
business united to the capacities and feelings of trained “ States-
Now all me): remember Lord John Russell's speech in the Eng-
ish Parliament, Innoundzig the warlike resolve of the Govern-
ioont and hurling its deharice at the Czar; how brimful it was of
virtuous inihgriation at the cruel perfidy of Russia; of generous
zeal for the honor and integrity of Turkey; of virtuous indigna-
tion at the discovery of such dreadful designs of aggesdore
which the British Government had long been reluctant to enter-
tsiri, because it had been, in the innocence of its heart, deluded
by the moderate stud just pretence: of that wily Czar. That
speech was a must soothing and delightful manifesta for English-
men to read at breakfast next morning in the Times; and Mr.
John Bull, as usual, applauded himself sarictimoniousl on his
liberal and righteous priocipieo, but only regretted that his own
candid nature had been imposed upon by its dispdcition to believe
that there could be no such wickedness in sinful snsn. Mr. Bull,
after breakfast, patted his own waistcoat with virtuous compla-
cency, and thanked God he was a Briton.
But whrn the said Ipcech went to St. Petersburg, the Czar
very properly made his organ the Journal st: SI. Pclzrsbourg come
out with the whole plot. Read the following extracts from that
journol carefully; and Imuntbzr that rm! one alalcnsenl in it mu

“That such distrust may have been entertained by France-
that it may up to a certain point have found I place in the mind
of a Government still recent, which has not had time to acquire,
y long experience of former relations with it, an exact idea of
our real intentions, and abandoning itself to the almost traditional
opinion which has been forine of Russian policy in the East-
that may be easily tonceived; but on the pan or England, which
is aware of the antecedents and the character of the Emperor,

excites surprise. , Less than any other, the British Government
should entertain such suspicions‘ It has in its hands the written

[ha Ollcmwus empire. I
Or, as this lost phrase is more explicitly rendered by the Lon-
don Tirnu-“ in the event of the most fanuidable coritirigmcy
that could befal tho Ottoman cmpirs"-that is its destruction.
But :1. Czar‘: organ does not map here. It proceeds thiis-
‘ ‘‘ Penetrated with the extreme importance of such a result, and
having at that period almost reached the region of the possible, if
not entirely of the probable-convinced of the disastrous mime-
quences is ‘ch might result from it, the Emperor thought it no-
cessary to assure himself beforehand vrhizther the English gowns-
metit shared his apprehensions. He vri more particularly by
"oils understanding to remove every subject of misun-
derstanding between Great Britain and himself It seemed of
the highest importance to his Majesty to establish the most perfect
identity of views w’ a government o Great Britain. With
this view the Emperor engaged the English Minister at St. Peters-
burg to cause her Majesty to be informed of his sntioipations with
respect to t anver, more or less imminent, that izienaceil Tur-
key. He requestezf on this subject a confidential interchange of
opinions with her Britannia Majesty. That was certain] the
most evident proof of conlidcnce which the Emperor eoul giro
to the Court of St. James; and thus did hi Majesty mast opmily
si ' ' sincere wish to prevent any ulterior ivergerics lio-
tween tho two govemmzrits. sir H. Seymour acquitted himself
forthwith of the important commission which the Emperor had
impressed on him in a long and familiar conversation. The
has shown itsclf in a rorreiipusidencs of the most frierodly charac-
tcr between the present English Mlnistars and the im '
vemrueiit. It is not ' ' ' 5
rioviv ‘al documents which do not concern the Emperor alone.
Mid which contain the orprensioun of a mutual conddeucs.
I-lerenpoo the London Timtr most indiscreetly cori6tm8 the
whole statement of the Czar in his ollicial organ; adds circum-
stantial details, and asserts that when the Czar visited England in
I844-while the Queen and Prince Albert were entertaining him
with high distinction in Buckinghaiii Palace, and the Iamdon pn-
pulacc were laying their hands upon their mouths, wand thnir
mouths in the dust, before his Imperial Highness,-at that very
moment the Czar arid the Duke of Vllellirigton, and Lord John
Russell and Sir Robert Peel, were talking confidentially, over
their wine, about a plan for destroying the Turkish empire in
Europe. And lastly, it appears those negotiations were carried
to so forward a point, that the Count Nesselrorlc made a minute
of them in writing. v
But there is another part of the story which is worthy your at-
tention. A discussion arose in the British House of Commons on
the 20th of Ecbruary. Mr. D’Isrzieli charged the giwernnierit
with having aided the designs of Russia. either through direct
coriiiivance or culpable credulity: with either secretly favoring;
the Gzar’s aggressions, or else suffering the Czar to impose upon
their innocent-o. Thereupori Lord Palmerston, with an air of in-
foiitine candor, uses these words-(it was a full fortnight before
the St. Pclersburg disclosures reached Lm1don)-
“Sir, when positive assunnces were iiiadc made by a government of
a great country like Russia, the government of this country were
entitled to believe them. (Hear, hear.) t is sai
milita onnoments of Russia. But the anriuments we
ways assured were only to caunterau-t the menacing lau uzi o
which had been held by the representative of France on the Ho 3'
Places. It is said there was a secret trcaty negotiating, but we
were told that Russia only demanded a new treaty by reason ofthe
serted that the government of this country had been from the be-
g'nning informed of the demands of Russia, he stimd what was -42-
u. true. ' (Sensation) Sir, it is painful to have to speak of a
government like that of Russia in sucliterms of condemnation; but
I must say, in vindication of the goveniment of her Majesty, that
through the whole course of those negotiations Russia exhausted
by all“ her agents and by every means, every uiodilicatiou of un-
truth, concealment, and equivocatiori-ending in 1):: assertion of
utterfolsehood. (Considerable sens:stion.)”
No wonder there was “ considerable sensation” iii that assembly
of British gentlemen.-That a wicked Czar should by “ positive
assurances" deccivc the Imnlspectiiig minds of amiable British
statesmen, was surely horrible.
Now who is the Liar‘!
Lord Palmerston, indeed, was not in ethos at the time of thosc
negotiations, so reduced to written minutes by Nesselrode i and
that is the reason why he was put forward to deny theirexisteuce:
but all the world will believe that he was well aware of all; and at
any rate the other British ministers allowed him to tell whatis now
proved to be an absolute falsehood and did not contradict him.
Those things you will probably find vvnrth your consideration at
present, when all elI'orts are made to represent the English gov-
ernment as tho champion of Turkey and her rights ; and when
the enthusiastic loyalty of our countrymen is appealed to in support
of this most fraudulent war. ‘ ‘ '
In short, I now repeat what I said bcfure-the English govern-
ment has no idea of going to war on behalf of Turkey at all-even
in the “ most formidable contingency," dtc.-and if there is to be
I war, Turkey is predestined to be, at any rate, its first victim.
Nothing of all this will surprise you much. You are tolcrably
familiar with the villanies of British statcsrucn; and you probably
remember (what I will not soon forget) that two days before my
mods “ trial" in Dublin, Lord John Riisscll in the House of Com-
moms, solemnly declared (for the solatrment of Mr. Bull at his
breakfast-tnhlo no aforesaid) that the gnvsrmneut regarded the pack-
ing of juries with horror ; and his “ lioiiovablo friend," Lord Clar-
endon, was fully instructed, he said, how that so virtuous s gov-
ernment would rather let the guilty escape punishment, tlinn
resort to so nefarious means. The newspaper containing that
reported speech arrived in Green street court-houscjust when the
crown officers were packing a jury, as jury was never packed
before; and I recollect that it did not stop the process.
Those ritish ministers have always been kiiaves in lrcluiid;
always rogues, forgers, arid traitors in India; always impostors
at the Cape of Good Hope, treaty-breakers iu America. pirates in
the Baltic and Mediterranean-believe use they are not saints at
Constantinople. If any man, or ruiriistcr, be indeed a knave, he
is s knove through all the parallels of latitude, and over oil the
degrees of longitude.
Before dismissing this Russo-Turkisli a.ll‘;iir,l brg you to ob-
scrve, that long before the clear cvidciice of British cormivancc
with Russia arrived from St. Petrrsburg, it was grievously nus-
pected by many well-informed men, and even charged against the
ministry in the House of Commons. And within the last few days,
Mr. Urquhart, late M. P. for Stallord, a Scottish Highland gentle-
man of great diplomatic experience in the East, and the man in
all England best informed (next to Kossutb) on the eastern ques-
tion, has petitioned Parliament, that to give Turkey some chance
of saving herself from utter destruction, it is expedient that the
British fleets be withdrawn from the Black Sea and Bosphoriis.
and the British ambassador from Coristantinoplo.
Conclusion to be drawn from the‘ whole case-that if then
is to be any war in Europe at all, it will be for who shall have ill‘-
gsalest share in the spoil of Turkey.
How these discoveries will affect the French Emperor and
French nation-to all of whom this “Government” has been
playing the tmitor,we have yet to me. As for us, Irishman.
