THE traditional feud which has from a remote period + existed between this country and France, and which difference of religion and conflicting political interests have conspired to inflame into a series of inveterate contests, has occasioned the feelings of Englishmen with regard to their continental neighbours, to border on a natural antipathy. Every thing glorious in our annals, according to the usual acceptation of the term glorious, is connected with the subjugation or the humiliation of France. Cressy, Poitiers, and Agincourt, are themes on which every Englishman exults to dwell. To beat the French, has been the glory of our navy, and our peerage has been swelled with the reward of such achievements. And if Spain has slrared in the feelings of contempt and defiance which it has seemed a point of honour to our countrymen to cherish towards their enemies, that country has been so regarded, chiefly as a subordinate ally of our great rival, or on account of its relation to France in the detested dynasty of Bourbon.' Those times, indeed, are gone by : Bourbon and the Pope are no longer our enemies. Our navy has other flags to encounter, than those of which she gloried to sweep the seas, apd Nelson himself seems almost forgotten in Wellington. But still there seems to remain, pretty generally, a feeling towards the French nation, which it would take many years of peace to subdue to perfect reconciliation; and this feeling is accompanied with a strong misgiving, that the policy which our rulers have adopted
