On the 15th of Oeccinber, 1002 the House of Commons resolved itself into a committee of ways aud meant. Somers took the chair. Montague proposed to rolse a million by way of loan; the proposiou was approved; aud It was ordered that a bill should be brought in. The details of llte scheme were much dis cussed aud modified; but the principle teems to have been populaf with all parlies. The moneyed men were glad to have an opportu nity of investing what they had hoarded. The lauded men, hard pressed by the load of taxation, were ready to submit to anything for the sake of present ease. No member Ventured to divide the House. Ou the 20th of January the bill was read a third time, carried up to ibe Lords by Somers, aud passed by them without an amend ment. •Such was the origin of that debt, which has since become the greatest prodigy that ever perplexed the sagacity and confounded the pride of statesmen aud philosophers. At every stage in the growth of that debt, the nation has sent up the same cry of anguish aud despair. At every stage in the growth of that debt, it has been seriously asserted by wise men that bankruptcy and ruin were at hand. Yet still the debt went on growing, aud still bankruptcy aud ruin were as remote as ever. When the great contest with Louis XIV was terminated by the peace of Utrecht, the nation owed about fifty millions; aud that debt was considered, not merely by the rude multitude, not merely by fox hunting squires and coffee-house orators, but by acute and profound thinkers, as au incumbrance whicli would permanently cripple the body politic. Nevertheless, trade flourished; wealth 1l creased; the nation grew richer aud richer. Then catne the war of Austrian succession ; and the debt rose to eighty millions. Pam phleteers, historians and orators pronounced that now, at all events, our case was desper f ate. Yet the signs of inctraslug prosperity, signs which could neither be counterfeited nor concealed, ought to b«ue satisfied obser vant and rellecutig men that a debt of eight/ • millions was less to Eugland which was gov erned by Pelham, than a debt of fifty millions bad been to England whicli was governed by Oxford. Soon war again broke forth; and uuder the energetic and prodigal administra tion of the drst William Pitt, the debt rapidly swelled to one hundred and forty millious. As soon as the first intoxication of victory was over, men of theory aud men of business almost unanimously pronounced that the fatal day had now really come. The attempt to lay a parlion of the load on the American colonies produced another war. That war left us w ith au additional hundred millions of debt, and without the colonies whose help bad been represented as Indispen sable. Again England was given over, aud again the strange palicut persisted iu becom ing stronger aud more bluamiug iu spite of ail the diagnostics aud prognostics ol State physicians. As she had been visibly more prosperous with a debt of one hundred aud forty millions than w ith a debt of flity mil lions, so she was visibly more prosperous w 1 )i a debt of two hundred and forty million* than with a debt of one buudred and forty millions. Soon, however, the wars which spraug from the French revolution, and wlnc i lar exceeded iu cost, any tuat the world bad ever seen, tasked the powers of public credit to the ut most. When the world was again at rest, the funded debt of England amounted to eight hundred millions. If the most enlightened man had been told, iu 17112, that iu 1810, the Interest on eight hundred millions would be duly paid to the day at the bank, he would have been as bard of belief as if he had been told tbat the Government would be in pos session of the lamp of Aladin or of the purae of Forlunatus. It was iu truth, a gigantic, a fabulous debt; and we can hardly wonder that the cry of despair should have been louder than ever, liut again that cry was found to have been as unreasonable as ever. After a few years of exhaustion, England recovered herself. Yet, like Aladiu's valetudinarian, who continued to whimper that he was dying of cousuinption till he became so fat thai he wa< shamed Into sileuce, she went on com plainiug that she was sunk in poverty till her wealth showed itself by tokens which made her complaints ridiculous. The beggard, the bankrupt society not only ptoved able to meet all it* obligations, but, while meeting those obligations, grew richer aud richer so fist that her g 'Owlh could almost be discov CICU. Xti every county we saw wastes recently turned lulo gardens; io every city we saw streets, and squares, aud markets, more bril liant lamps, inure abundant supplies of wa ter; iu the suburb* of every great seat of In dustry, we saw villas multiplying fast, each embossomed in its gay little paradise of lilacs and ro*".«. While shallow politicians were re pealing that the energies of the people were mure borne down by the weight of public bur dens, the Itrst journey was performed by strain ou a railway. Suon the islaud was intersected by railways. A sum exceeding the whole amount of the national debt at the end of the American war, in a few years, voluntarily ex pended by the. ruined people io vladmcta, t uo ue.le, embankment*, bridges, stations, engines. Meanwhile taxation was almost constantly be coming lighter; yet sliJI the exchequer was full.
