Statesmen Are Very Nice Persons. On Gran...
Atlantic , or some other place of that kind , he is emphatically not the man to take the charge of the Channel Fleet . We have -no personal objection , and we may safely suggest that the British public have no personal objection , to Mr . Childers purchasing one of the Thames Penny Steamboats with a view to
cruising ( even in the dirtiest weather ) between Lambeth and Battersea , —nay , we will go further , we are quite sure that no right-minded person would have any rooted aversion to witnessing Mr . Childers dancing a naval hornpipe at the Surrey , or even the Bower Saloon ; but there again we draw the line .
Has the Right Honourable Gentleman any right to defy sea-sickness and public opinion in command of the Channel Fleet ? Certainly not . We have no doubt he would prove himself an excellent Admiral in a minor theatre performance of Black-JZyedSusanj but he is a decided mistake " abaft the binnacle "
( whatever that may mean ) on a real man-of-war . So much for Mr . Childers ; and now we come to another Minister , who is I equally deserving of our censure . Here followeth another fresh paragraph . Who is Mr . Car dwell ? We decline to answer , for the simple
reason that no one cares a pin who he is . We know that he is a bungler , and so , unhappily , do the officers and rank and file of the 9 th Regiment of the Line . Only a few days ago that unlucky force were compelled to march miles upon miles in a heat that may be fairly described as tropical . Was it surprising
that numbers sank and even died under the terrible ordeal ? But then we must expect such little contretemps when we have to deal with a bungler . Is there no remedy to cure this Mr . Cardwell of his stupidity—we beg pardon , we mean lack of intelligence ? Of coursewe can ' t expect him to be a soldieror
to know anything about , military matters . We have no doubt , that if the truth were known it would be found that he imagines a gun is called a 32-pounder because it costs , at least , 25 guineas , & c , & c , & c . Well , we don ' t object to this . Mr . Card well has no intention of ever going out to battle ; and even
if he did find himself at the seat of war , as we should certainly not follow him thither , the fact that he attempted to form himself into a hollow square with the right thrown back , or gave the order to the Horse Marines to fire their cartouche boxes out of their knapsacks in slow time to quick music would be to
us matters of the supremest indifference . In spite of this , we cannot allow him to march a body of men through Sunstroke to death . No ; let him take a leaf out of the book of his col-? ordered league , Childers to change , and its march quarters at . the If this head does of the not next effect reg a iment cure we we must must give give nim him over over to to IUr > r . . Forbes 1 < orbes Winslow Winslow . for for Hanwell Hanwell ,
will be better suited to his administration than the , slow-working machinery of the War OfficePall Mall . , In conclusion , we have no objection to Messrs . Childers and Cardwell doing nothing , but then let it be clearly undertout stood / that that nothing must not be pernicious . Again—voila
