   Trades Free Press (Newspaper) - December 16, 1827, London, Middlesex                                " THEY HELPED EVERY ONE HIS NEIGHBOUR, AND EVERY ONE SAID T6 HIS BROTHER^ BE OP GOOD COURAGE."-rlsAiAJt, sit. 6. VOL. in. No. 121. SUNDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1$2T. i! '. PRICE Td. WHAT ARE THE  PROSPECTS OF THE PEOPLEI Yes.! What are their prospects?   Amid all tlie hurry land bustle, and confusion and alarms of war, the hubbub of councils, couriers, and diplomatists, and all the sundry notes of preparation, from the Royal .Exchange to I he Royal dockyards ; and all the. shoutings for the victory,, from the piping of the " The ~-to the battle cha'nnt of Allan Cumiihgh'ara- What are the prospects of     people!-It was one of the Edwards, we, believe, who remarked, that the surest remedy for domestic discontent was-& foreign mar.  King's, however incapable they may be, in the phraseology of the ?�hs};itiuloh, bt tiding rttmy, -are, nevertheless, not very remarkable for the wisdom of their sayings1;'-but the 'present case is, in so'me degree, 'an exception.    The remark of his Majesty evinqed a good deal of shrewdness ; and, at all events, (showed a tolerable knowledge of  human nntun.'. Liberty was but little understood, and far less practised  at that . period ;   and no   matter, how den-potic th$ government,  or  how great  the sufferings of the  people,   all  that appeared necessary to the   mind  of  the   before-mentioned  Mujesty was, to quarrel with some distant neighbour-open a vent for the more untamed spirits lo discharge them-selyes-t-rouse the vulgar prejudices of his subjects- and, leading them by the nose into the field, thus silence at-once their petitions and their grumbling. 1 The doctrine seems not to have been lost upon after governments, but to have been acted upon to an extent, that, upon reflection, seems astonishing.   During the late dreadful wars which for so many years deso-' lated in some shape almost every part of Europe, if we examinelnto their causes and objects, it will be nearly impossible to find any instance in which the interests of the people formed any hem in the matter. We know they were ostensibly put forward-we know there was a wonderful anxiety expressed on their behalf; every thing,was undertaken for their, benefit-armies were sacrificed, taxes were heaped upon taxes, through the most disinterested feeling imagfnable.purely -to dd'them a service ! There was no feeling of ambition -no desire to projp updespoiism-or any, the slightest wish of putting an extinguisher upon liberty-not at .all-every thing was undertaken to aggrandize the people! Aye, and the dolts believed it-swallowed cftf^^^^^ajs^^i^ei-ed,' ahd pa\d .for; thein ^^^^^s^df^.'.! .iyr'e, and ;jnany -'of ibose very artisans who are now suffering such privations,. were among the loudest in extolling the system with their toasts and songs of ultra loyalty, whilethe now impoverished agriculturists flourished away in the ranks of the yeomanry cavalry,, the lustiest soldiers in the world I   Can we wonder that the people should-be turned upon with tho contempt of a Coriolanus?
