We rejoice to sec that I lie cause of ill-fated,
bleeding Poland has no*, only engaged the smypa
thics of the British nation, hut awakened the at
tention of tho British Parliament. In the flouso
of Commons, June 28th, a debate of thrilling in
terest occurred on this melancholy subject, from
which we select such extracts as our time and
limits permit. It was introduced by a speech
from Mr. C'utlar Ferguson, who reviewed the
history of Poland’s wrongs antecedent to her
la."* desperuUj oirugglc for independence, and then
passoil to tho cruelties and violations of faith
which had been practised upon tier since that war
was terminated. lie said,—
Of ’22 Polish Generals, who thon became in a
manner prisoners under the amnesty, the greater
portion were sent fo distant parts of the Russian
umpire, and of the whole number only four had
returned to Poland. Common soldiers also, who
were included in tho amnesty, were marched by
thousands to .Siberia; tho lust accounts which had
boon received pictured these br.ivo Poles as march,
ing in columns towards their place of exile; they
were met, day by day, in parties of 10, linkod to
getiior by the wrists to a bar of iron, and this was
the mode in which the Emperor Nicholas fulfilled
the amnesty under which they had surrendered.— [
i no .vioiea oi i oianu were treated in the same
way. One anecdote had come to his knowledge,
which he would state. The Prince Simonska, who
was arrayed in the ranks of his countrymen against
the despot’s power, was sentenced to banishment
into .Siberia. Tho sentence was enforced on tho
day of his Saint’s festival, and the Emperor Nich
olas wrote on the sentence, in his own hand, the
aggravating punishment that lie must bo sent into
.Siberia on foot, chained to tho bar of tho common
soldiers. If this was doubted it could bo proved,
for tho document was in existence. Tho Princess,

into ruins. He hoped that England would never
suffer an attempt to denationalise Poland without

prevent it; and tho first slop towards this was to
put forth a solemn protest against an act
so atrocious in its nature. Ho would not

IioKii Sanimis seconded the motion, and said that
not a member of ihoir house who had heard the
speech of the Hon. Member for Kiroudpright, hut
would raise his voice against tho utter violat ion by
Russia of all tlio treaties with the European Powers
on the subject of Poland, and more particularly ot
the troaty of Vienna which was .. before thorn.
It was totally impossible for Poland to bo amal
gamated with Russia as a slavish dopendancy, which
was tho rendition to which Russia had now redue.
cd her: and tiieCMy consoling consideration through
out this melancholy scoiio of bloodshed and oppres
sion, was, that tlm conduct of Rossi« had complete
ly freed, not only Poland, but all the other Euro
peun powers from the stipulations contained in
the treaty of Vienna, and set them at liberty to
take those steps which, utter tho necessary dis
cussion, it might Ihj doomed advisable to adopt.
Poland might probably bo established as a sepa
rate kingdom, to ho placed as a counterpoise, in
the north of Europn, to the Russian power, and
then a securer state might be ultimately attained
for Eurupo, by admitting her amongst the family
of nations, to maintain the general balance. There
was ono romaikablo feature in this ‘pie-uion, that
noithor in nor out of the house was there to In*
found oue person who took any other thin that
view ot it, which had been so ablv exposed on the
other side of tho House.
iiORO t ai.mkrsto.n Mid ho should beg the House
to excuse bint from entering upon the discussion of
the transactions to which tho lion, ami Learned
Member had so ably referred; at the same time, ho
begged tho House would not suppose the Govern
ment to he so blind, as not to have perceived ilia* this
country had a right, by tlio Treaty of Vienna, to
claim, on the part of Poland, an observance of the
conditions of her union with Russia.
Lord Viscount Morpeth said it hail been his for
tune to receive much kindness and hospitality in
Russia, and lie was not without some personal pre
dilections for that country. But, said he, if all or
much of what wo hear is true,—and much alas ! we
know must bo,—if the design is on foot to annihi
late the Polish nation, name, constitution, lan
guage—all but her immortal memory—the land of
Casimirs, and Sigismunds, of Sobieskis ami ICosci
uskos, that first resisted the torrent of Mahomedan
invasion, and secured tho iibertios and religion of
Europe;—if her Princes, and Nobles, and Senators,
are consigned to tho dungeons, tho mines, tho
?[raves of Siberia; if her Noble Ladies travel to the
oot ol the throne—and I.am told there very pre
sence has even sent a chill into the festivities of the
capital—and sue not for pardon, hut for pity upon [
those whose fault it was to act with conscientious
and heroic, though perhaps despairing, devolion in
tho cause of their country, while they thought they
had one—and that suit is denied them; if, while
confiscation and exile thus track the course of her
Czartoriskys and her Sarguskos, her rising and spir
ited youth arc daily drafted to swell Ihc ranks of
the Russian armies, and to prepuro Te Drums for
future triumphs over the freedom of the world,—if,
further—oh, crowning horror!—let it bo well attest.
! od before we credit it—childron aro carried olT to
j lose the memory of thoir noble country on the fro
zen hanks of the Irtisk, or among the mountanous
steppes ol Caucasus; if these things be, we may,
without much compromising ourselves, say that a
case is made out for the energetic intervention of
England and Of Europe; \tu may, wiltioot
presuming, add, that whatever becomes of that in
tervention, great room is left for the rightoous re
tribution of Heave.v.
Sir Georgu Warrkxder said, lie felt that the
| independence of nations had been wounded through
the side of Poland, by the infamous partition trea
ty. How much more the independence cf nations
had suffered by the recent wound inflicted on Po
! l^'id *»y Russia, was hut too apparent to all. He,
howover, hoped much from the firmness and abil
ity of the Ambassador who it hud been resolved
upon should go out on a special mission to Peters
burg. Much might be expected from bis principles
and his well-known attachment to freedom. There
was little doubt but liis Noble I'riond would do bis
utmost effectually to secure tho stipulations of the
Treaty of Vienna in favor of the Polish nation,
and at the same time preserve the peace of I ho
Continent. If it were possible that Government
should show itself inattentive, or listless, on the
subject, he would tell his Majesty’s Ministers that
whenever tiie moment arose for taking the sense
of the public upon tho question of the wrongs of
Poland, it would bo found that the British] na
tion and poople sympathised much more intensely
with that brave and gallant people than Ministers
| had hitherto supposed—(hear). Every British
heart beat a responso to the call of that gallant
and suffering nation of heroes. With such a gen
eral feeling on the part of the British people, he j
thought it. would be impossible that any Briiisli !
Ministry would hesitate as to doing its utmost to j
insure that the stipulations of the Treaty of Vien- 1
na, as regarded Poland especially, should be car- j
ried into effect.
Lord Ldrixgton, in terms ot tho strongest sympa
! thy. enumerated the claims which Poland had upon
the rest of civilized Europe for tho valour with
which she fought for her liborly, and the patience
i wi,i' which she had borne the sad results of her 1
| struggle to shake off the yoke, where tho odds wore
too groat against her to permit hor a chance of sue.

namely, political ones,—which almost pressed as I
forcibly on all reflecting men’s minds as those of a I
humane character. Was it to he supposed that if:

of the independence of States in tho immediate

do justice to the efforts of our Munster (Lord Cas.
tlcreugh) to secure, by the Treaty of Vienna, the
maturation of Poland to her independence and her
proper rank amongst nations. As far as treaties
could go, those objects wore secured; but what se
curity WHvi there lor the independence of the rest i
ot Europe, if her aggression in order to acquire ;
territory were not in this instance checked by na
tions whose turn was sure to conic to submit to tho
yoke, were they now remiss i« asserting the muse
ot insulted and betrayed Poland? lie expected
and hoped much from the connection of the Noble
Is>rd about to proceed on a mission to St- f’otors
burgli with the Noble Premier, as well as from bis
attachment to liberty and to liberal institutions;
and he thought it highly probable the knowledge 1
ot these circumstances would inspire, even in those
despotic regions, all the friends of froedom with i
courage and confidence. Much as lie deprecated
any thing like an attompt to plunge, by violent
counsels, this country in a war, Ito believed the best
means, in ibis instance, to avoid such a result,
would be to remonstrate with boldness and prompt
itudn — (hear.) If this country were to assert the
cause of Poland and her wrongs, and to draw the
sword, with our free and liberal neighbour, there
could be little doubt of the result. It would, ut
least, bo a consolation to find that the sword
would not l,c drawn, in this instance, as it had

Mr. O’CoNNF.t, said he was almost afraid to trust
himself in the expression of his sentiments upon n
subject which naturally must induce one to adopt I
language unbecoming tho character of these deli-'
Iteration*. Ho could not conceal from tho House
the sentiments of disgust und abhorrence with
which ho had heard the details of the cruelties prac
tised by order of the Russian Autocrat upon this
generous and brave nation. Hr had heard to-night
of tho rights conferred on Poland by tho Treaty of
Vienna. Rights! Had she no rights antecedent to
that treaty? Had not that Congress proved they
were themselves rohbors and partners in guilt? Po
land hud taken no part in the antecedent struggle.
France and Russia had both run over her, it was
true. Hut Poland had rights antecedent to the in
famous and ineipiiteiis spidiat ion of 1772 and 17111.
That spuin'ion hud rendered unsafe und insecure
those very Thrones, which looked with delight on
the unjust territorial acquisitions that political ini.
quity had procured them. There were two dis
tinguishing and prominent features in tho case of
tne brave Poles—their great merits and their great
wrongs. Cutoiiclicd with admiration tor the one,
or pity for the other, tho miscreant conqueror had
gone trampling on the prostrate people of that coun
try—violating every institution they respected_
wantonly wounding the better fueling* of both sex
es—nay, with a barbarity unheard of in all history,
tearing from their parents the littlo children, to
transplant them to the wild wastes of Siberia. Gra
cious God! what must liuvo been thu feeling of a
Polish mothei, at this sacrifice of her loved otlsring?
Then a Indy, the wife of a Polish General, within

because he wore a crown? He would not hesitate
to say that such was his grasping and lawless am

insult and oppression had roused the Poles lo re

j No country hud ever deserved so well of Europe,
| and no country had over been worse treated. IIo
hoped, however, that the nationality of Poland
would soon be restored.
Mr. Schonswar said that the Poles had been too
long trampled under foot, oppressod ami degraded.
He trusted, however, that the peoplo of England,
backed by tlio House, would interposo and preserve
the people from extinction.
( ol. Evans relied upon the declaration of Lord
Palmertson that this country had a right to call
upon the Emperor of Russia for explanation. Most
Hon. Mombers who had spoken, had Shrunk from
tho mention of war; but if war was the only alter,

successful attacks.
Mr. Gully Knight attributed many of tlio disas
I l*5*8 ol Poland to tile war party in France, who had
urged'on the insurrection. This party had much
to. answer for. Pol md had been basely deprived
! of her existence as a nation, blotted out from tho
map ol Europe, mid extinguished in the provinces
ol tho usurper. It became the duty of England
to see that that treaty, which had been so strictly
adhered to in riveting the chains of Italy, should
also he as st rictly observed in preserving the nation
ality of Poland. As England had been at th.1t
lime the arbitress of nations, she was hound to see
the treaty enforced. lie was satisfied that not all
the power ol Russia would ever be able to Russian
irr Poland.
Mr. Pigott expressed Iris strong concurrence in
the well-merited reprobation cast upon the Empe
ror ot Russia, and hoped that tho treaty would bo
laid, upon the table by which England pledged her
self to pay the tyrant a sum of money.
Sir R. II. Inglis expressed his surprise that his
Majesty’s Ministers had suffered such language as
had been used in the House without notico, and
that they had said nothing in dofenco of a Govern
ment with which t hey had recommended his Majcs
j 1° continue upon the samo terms as before,
j \V ilh such a treaty just delivered, it was improper
to describe any person, much loss a Sovereign, as
a miscreant.
Mr. Cutlar Fcrgusson denied that ho had used
any such language.
Sir Robert Inglis reforred to the Hon. Member
for Kerry, whom he did not now sec in his
Eon! Palmerston—No man regretted more than I
I did to hoar the expressions which fell from tho
lion, and learned Member for Kerry; but not con
ceiving myself responsible for those expressions

as I regret tho use of such expressions, 1 do not

Mr. Beaumont said that the Noble. Lord would
have acted most injudiciously if he had used such
a word, but he (Mr. B.) was delighted to hear those
words from the Hon. Member for Kerry. Ho re
peated the word.*, “miscreant conqueror,” and
wassuro they were only the echo of the voice of
the people of England—(hear, hoar). When the
people of England were called upon to speak,
their language was strong and effective.
Mr. Iluinc would not only call the Emperor of
Russia a “miscreant conqueror,” but a pionster in
human form.
Sir R. Inglis—I said that those words ought not
to lie made use of without notico.
Mr Hume would repeat the words, and they were
too tvenk to express his detestation of the barbari
ties of such a tyrant. If tho atrocities which had
been detailed were Ulitrne, let any member stand
up and deny them; if they were true, was any Ian
gtiagc too strong to apply lo them?
Mr. Wyse said that this was not the first lime he
bad bad occasion to observe in that House great ten
derness towards the most questionable Sovereigns
of I, irope. He was sorry to have heard sentiments
expressed in thnt House which would seem, if not
to sanction, at least greatly to pallialo tfio acts of
oppressive rulers.
Mr. Baring concurred with the Hon. Member
for Oxford in protesting against the use of Ian
gnage which, if not checked or noticed by the Go
vernment, was more likely than any thing else fo
disturb the peace of Europe, and to involvo this
country in nil the embarrassments of war. He
felt that it would be impossible to preserve this
country from constant difficulty and peril, if,
'►n every occasion when a grievance of any
kind occurred—whether in Poland or Prussia,
or the Peninsula or Italy—wo were to sally
lorlli and adopt the quarrel as our own. At flic
same time he felt it was quite right that this
country should endeavour, under the 'Treaty of Vi.
eiuia, to obtain a more just and humane treatment
of the Polish nation. In that respect he relied ful.
Jy upon the temper and discretion, as well as the
firmness ot the Noble Lord who had been delegated
lor that purpose; and ho hoped lie would not adopt
the tono which hail been recommended in that
House, to-night. He could not help remarking up.

Mr. Siiikl suid tltc Member for Tbclford would
have ub
-“Mince our words,
“And mollify damnation with u phrase."
Ho is right—but bo should make allowance for
otlicix who has sometimes occasion for indulgence
towards Ins own vocabulary, and he should consider
a man us pardonable for shaking of u miscreant
on a throne as for speaking of Ins fellow citizens
(a part of the English people) as “blackguards in

would not call Nicholes a miscreant, because when

heart of Poland out—when we see him betraying
a nation of lieiocs into submission, and then trans
porting them to Siberia, shaving oil' the gray hair
of Nobles with tho blood of Europe’s saviors in
their veins, degrading and enslaving women, spa.
ring neither age nor sex, and thrusting the hand of
a ruthless and° Herod-liko infanticide into the era
dlo of Polish childhood—when wo see him acting
thus, and leaving himself nothing to add “to dam
nation,” wo should not call him “miscreant,” but
exclaim, “Oh! thou art worse than words can give
the out.”—(Cheers.)
Nir Robert Pkki. said it was very well for Hon.
members to say that now was tho time to go to war,
and that Franco and England should compel Russia
to act justly towards Poland; but if over there exist
oda moral obligation upon any country, to weigh
well the justice of entering upon war, as well as tho
probability of its success, it existed at the present
moment upon Croat Britain. Before they lightly
determined upon war, and predicted its success,
they should consider deeply us to its probable con
sequences. He would suggest to the lion. Contlc
man, (Mr. Ferguson) an addition to his motion. As
under tho Treaty of Vienna it was said that Poland
was to have a Constitution, he thought a copy of
that Constitution ought to be laid on tliu table, with
the other documents.
lie doubted the policy of exciting the pride and
resentment of tho Russians to such an extent as to
induce thorn tv rally on the side of tho Emperor,
to protect not only him but themselves front insult
[hear, hear.] Such language was calculated to
lower tho character of tho House and to diminish
ils means of rondoring assistance to Poland; by
making it impossible for Russia to listen to mode
rate remonstrances from those who had indulged in
such language. lie would venture to say that the
Poles themselves never indulged in such language
[hear, hear.] It was by pursuing a inoro dignified
course that they had excited in their favor tho sym
pathies of tho pcoplo of Europo.
Before tho Hous6 indulged such sympathies to
tho extent of risking a war, ho thought a clear
caso should ho made out, not only of obligation,
on the part of this country, to interfere, but also of
probable success in tho event of such interference.
— (hear, hoar.)
Mr. C. Fkruvson acceded to the suggestions of
tho Right Honourable Baronet, and after shortly
replying, tho motion wus agreed to, and tho address
was ordered to bo presented to his Majesty, by
such Members of the House as wero Members also
of his Majasty’s most Honourable Privy Council.
The orders of tho day were then disposed of,
and the House adjourned at half past two.
