must have read but few of the pages of this Journal, or profited but little by what he has read. *
* As we are here correcting a misrepresentation, it may be as well to guard against a mifconftruction, to which, we apprehend, fome of our remarks in laft Number (Review of Mr Whitbread's Letter to Lord Hol land) have been expofed. When we stated it as a poffible case, that the late minifters had become lefs pacific, in confequence of the enjoyment of power, we never could mean to accufe them of facrificing former principles for the paltry objects of place, or perfonal ambition. Our words obviously meant, that one reafon for what we deemed an unfortunate variation of opinion upon this most important of all queftions might be, their growing more fanguine in the hopes of faving Europe by a warlike policy, fince they had acquired the management of the refources of this great empire. Our remark applied to the whole of that party, and included, most unquestionably, Mr Fox, as well as his furviving colleagues; for the whole of the miniftry ftood in the very fame predicament respecting the great question of peace. To name the names of Mr Fox and Lord Grey (would that the management of the Spanish bufinefs were now in fuch hands!) is a fufficient refutation of any charge pointing towards little, felfifh, and ordinary errors. These things are by no means unimportant, or merely perfonal to one fet of men. If Europe can yet be faved, it muft look for its fafety to the only clafs of ftatesmen who have ever showed that great talents and acquirements are not incompatible with pure and virtuous principles; and having uniformly attacked what we conceived to be their errors while in power, we may bear this teftimony to their high merits while in retirement, without the poffibility of our motives being mifreprefented.
