De TocQUEVILLE.
“There she is—the great engine-she never sleeps. She has her ambassadors in every

and her envoys walk into statesmen's cabinets. They are ubiquitous. Yonder Journal
has an agent at this minute giving bribes at Madrid ; and another inspecting the price of
potatoes at Covent Garden."
