THE EFFECT OF AMERICAN SYMPATHY IN IRE
While English statesmen are devising daily plans for the
increase and protection of paupeiistn in this long loyal and long
suffering Province of I refund, Ame tic an statesmen, regarding
j this country as, even in its wreck, worth being saved, are ac
cumulating Iheir voluntary tributes for the relief of our neces
sities. W iiiie the chief journals of the English capital are dai
ly teeming with invectives against our people, high and low,
American journals, from Houston down to Easlport, are revi
-1 ving reminiscences ot Irish merit, in order to hasten the kindlv
interference of their country in behalf of ours. While the pop
ular divines of England cun see in pestilence and famine only
judgments for an angered Deify, smiting Ireland on both cheek*
for her idolatry, the favorite preachers of America perceive but ,
an opportunity for the exercise of active charity.
‘The nation’s position resembles that of the man in the Gos
pei who went down from Jerusalem to Jencho. America is ;
our Samaritan. When our wounds are bound up, nnd we are
able to go our destined way, we will know to whom our grati
tude is due. “A certain L* vite” shall also be remembered.
Out of this famine will come many results, one of the great
est of which may he, if we desire it, the estuhlishu ent of “a
cordial understanding” between us and the United estates of
It is an axiom of the closest observers of human nature, that
conferring benefits on any object, endears that object to the
benefactor; so in domestic life, adopted children are usually I
the dearest. And, at this hour, America, like the Grecian
daughter, feeds from the warm bosom of her youth, the aged,
nnd alas! shackled nation, to which her infancy owed protec
tion and suppoit. Never, indeed, did the world behold a finer
spectacle. Sentence of death has gone forth from Babylon on
millions of our people. ‘The European continent was dumb,
except where, near the extreme South, the Pontiff Liberator of
Rome searched in his hollow coffers after n mite for Ireland.
France was silent, Austria wns silent. Russia did not cry out
“shame!” A diplomatist rules in Paris: and the ancient
friendship between the countries of Sarsfield and Count Saxe,
of Hocl.e and of Tone, has withered beneath his rule. A di
plomatist rules at Vienna, and the services ot our greut soldiers
at Austria—oar Kuvunahs, Macs and O’Reillvs—never weigh
ed a feather oll the power balancing brum ofMettrrnich. Even
the Iteui ol the Poles ha* turned diplomatist, and grumbles in
chriels. Italy, except Home, and all Spain, lies the helpless
and bleeding prey of this same accursed diplomacy. From
Continental Europe then, we could gain no aid against Eng
land ; for Europe is ruled by In ad*, not hearts—bv profits, not
principles—by “the laws of nation*,” not ‘‘the laws of (rod.”
Pul America, happily, has thus far escaped the incubus;
and America, in u national seu-r. ho* become Ireland’s friend
—her chief friend among the nations.
N<w England, our governor, alternately hates and fears
America; and America returns hatred lur hatred,and scorn for
scorn, but feels no fear of any earthly power.
Let us follow the three tiulions into die future, as far as hu
man seme can see. To begin :
England, in Ihe years 1846 and 1847, had the government of
Ireland in her own hands. In those years 2,000,000 ol the Irish
people died for want of food, while there was plenty of money
and credit in England; nnd plenty of food for the fetching be
America, in the springof 1847, hearing of Ireland’* distress,
trade a magnanimous effort to sav* her. nnd su< -*edcd in pre
serving nearly 1,000,000 of Irish lives, b, assistance rendered
in Ireland, or to Irish emigrants in America
All umvlio may survive this English famine, note down in
lire new leaf ol your memories this contrast.
Let us speculate a little further:
Suppose, in the year of our l.ord 1850, that Ireland, with a
population reduced to 5,000.000, begins to recover from this
aw lul ordeal—that her peusents till the land again, and her
artisan* resume Mieir labors. Suppose this done under a wLcr
policy among Irishmen, and less injurious imperial laws, this 1
island will even then he a power in Europe, though still a prov ;
im e. But suppose it then be ng, or about to be, u Iree nation, I
governing itself by certain moral ni.d national law's, having
and cultivating certain foreign relations, whut will be its posi
tion in regard to America? Whv this:
America needs friend* in Europe, and our relations have nl*
wa v s been of a friendly kind ; but from thin year forth no Irish
man will willingly draw al> igger against her. Our harbor*
me nearer to America than England’s nnd more arcesrihle.
‘The merchants of New Ymk nnd New Orleans alone have lost !
milliondollars in St. George’s (.’flannel because thev fid
lowed the arbitrary current of British commerce, flowing into
that sink of the old slave-trade, Liv rpool. Until the late abo
lition of the corn law *. Great Britain could in a measure con
trol America’s commerce ; hut now America the great produ
cer at om e of the materials of iiihdii fact are nod ihe food of the
manufacture!, can turn not only her own, hut British com
merce, into such channels as she pica***. Moreover, America
must be, lie foie many year*, the intermediate agent betw on 1
Asia and Europe. From London to Canton, found ’ape Hoi ii, I
i* more than 6,000 miles—from the same place to the same, via 1
l'nna'iiu or Oregon, less than 5,000. America w ill ilipii mere
and more require an ally nnd a depot on the west of Europe ;
nnd we hereby,after a full deliberation, advertise Ireland as a
candidate for that employment, whose qualifications excel thos*
of all others.
Our object in this speculation is 1 keep the people in In
land. If we nrc starved, colonized, er otherwise swindled out
ol it, the English will quietly remove here their Government
and other machinery, even ns ihe Tyrians of old removed to
Carthago, or Duke William and his vassals from Normandv to
England; and thev will become to Europe nil that we might
Lave been. The Irish name and nature will fade from the face I
of the earth, nnd the island of our ancestors become the home j
of anew people, ruling and enjoy ing where w e huve starved ;
Good Providence, to think of this! To think that our op* i
pression is to end otilv in banishment, nnd our struggles to
tease but in dentil. To think of this land, sprinkled nil over
with tin* holv blood of freedom’s martyrs—frtr tnetl with fields 1
of glory like an Emperor's shield—monumeuted, on in ted, song
famed through the world, given lip at last to men without one
sympathy l"t it in their hearts,or one fact about it ir. their mem- ;
Tradesmen, truant-league, landlords,clergymen—lriahmen, J
must this be ?
