KNQLAND AND ASIA
Great Britain Will Bo J.mlnu of
Japan's Augraouted Powr.
We need, irrnl It need, a Port -mouth
in tho Far Last, cituated, wo
would BUirgeAt, iu coiim point in
Western liorueo, or, i( there in n
good hatbor, on the Mauri now be
longing to thu Dutch, called t lit
Great Natunaa, which, if thu iniper
ft dercriptiouao it are reaouably
correct, mut bo aiugularly riefoiiM
blo. That eeiiu to u the char (In
duction from th capture of Wei-Hai-Woi.
which ouht to imprcfn
Europo much more than thu occupa
tiou of Cores, tlm plow nnrch aero s
East Manchuria, or even I ho atoriu
of tho (,'reat armual, 1'ort Arthur,
Tho Japaucso have exhibited at
Woi-Uai-Wei not only tho foro'g'it,
which wo now expect of thorn thu
scientific knowledge and thu power
o adaptiiiK niean to end- but tho
kind of noldier-lilw resolution and
fidelity to duty which wo have all
been deceived into believing to b
qualities exclusively purtaiioii to
Europeans. Any navy iu Europe
would, wo fancy, be proud to havo
executed thatprcond rush of tor
pedo boats into tho harbor of Wei-ilai-Woi,
when tho first one, though
FUccecKful iu blowim,' up one great
ironclad, had suffered so terribly
under tho Chinnre tire, when aMortn
wns blowing outside, and whou tho
cold ought to havo Irozou t,ho very
hearts of men bred in a gentler clt
mato than ours. Tho English would
havo written thing', wo think, about
that crew which went on, though a
lieuteuaut ami two men wuro froz u
to death as they Mood, and would
hato drawn augutiesas to tho con
tiuued vitality f tho raco from that,
exhibition ol plucky endurance and
of a fidelity to duty which withstood
even death by torture.
If tho .Jap.'iueo navj, which wo
sfo to bo well armed, well provi-iou-oil
and well commanded, in manned
by ineii of that temper, Japiu, ku
may depend upon it, i not only a
cousidetn'ilo hea I'ower, but lia in
her a potoutiahty of being a very
formidablo one. Shu only needs
more hhip; and betides her capacity
for building them for herself, sho
will hhortly iu possession of a
great hum of nmney with which
to purchase more. Jnj an is, in
fact, a Power which, if not abso
lutely tirpt-class, is first-clan iu
its power of action, and has arisen
suddeuly and, as it were, with a
leap, at tho extremity of Asia. It
t-euuis to us that our Ministers, Wo
cam not of which party, will bu
bound, as far-seeing Matesmeu. to
provide agaiuH t ho possiblo hostility
of tho now Power. They aro de
pending vvu do not mean by ,,thej"
ouo party mom than another far
too much upon the unity of Europe
against the agrau(liz-uieiii of
Japan. Wo see uo grounds for as
niining that this unity will bo du -able.
Wo nunt rely in tho end on our
own strength, and our own Hreimth
maybe seerely tried by our want
of a ba'o near enough to bo of ure.
It is all very woll to say that Japan
and Great Britain havo no grounds
ol qunrrei, out pea rowers are jeal
ous of each other, and if tho Mi
kvlo's Government recolves, as it
will bo tempted by the national
elation to retolve, upon a policy of
adventure and conquest, it is our
property which offers most tempta
tion ami is most exposed. Hong
kong, tho entrepot for commerce
with China; Singapore, which Lord
Ueacone field thought thu key of
Asia; Borneo, with its endless posi
bilities; oven India or Ausiralia
tbomelv" might bo tho subjects of
attack. Tho Japanese in their ela
tion hope to bothefirht Power in
Ams, and to bo that they mu4 in
soino way provo to us that wu
havo to content Mirsolves with
the second position, which would
mean a maritime war. How far
am wo ready for itl Thu Ad
miralty has strenKthened tho
Uret very wiely, for we wore wrong
in thinking tho movement prema
ture; and thu theory is, that wu
should iu a great engagement de
stroy tho Japanese fleet. Hut, sup
pose wu did not; that tho torpedixH
weio too many for us; or, though
nominally victorious, wo were severe
ly wounded, how then would the
two Powers stand! Tho Japauesn
would retreat to their own a seuals
to refit, or to Poit Arthur, which
they will not, givo up; and whom
should wo go! Wo have coal iu half
a ill .en known places, and ouo
depot, Chagos, which everybody out
side thu Admiralty forgets; but
whero short of Bombay could we re
pair a battered irou-cladi Bombay
is as far from North Chiua ai India
from England, and entirely westward
of all the positions wo should be anx
ious to defend, Wu want, it seems to
us, an arsenal of our own, iu a har
bor wo can defend, fiOOO miles more
to thu eastward than Bombay, and
yet wu havo nothing of the kind,
nothing even though wo write this
with full Mibuiisaiou to thu experts
which would in an hour of emer
gency servo as a make-shift.
Without such a possession wo re nil in
exposed to chances, a defeat at sea
or a drawn bill le, which would in
volve our whole position iu Asia, and
which it would be iiwauity to risk.
We might hate to put out our fu'l
strength to defeat an enemy of
whom twelve mouths nuo wo nev
so much as thought, and whom, if
wo had thought of him at all, wo
should havo placed on a level with
Holland and with Greece. That
illusion has passed away from ofllcial
t nought; and alter thu scene at Wei-llai-Woi,
it is time to ask whether it
were not well tint it should pas
away alfo from official resolve;
whether, to put the quectioti iu its
concrete form, wu do not need a
