PALMEZZANO



1884



PAMPHILUS



Ihe Whig ministry formed in November, 1830. Having
resigned with his colleagues in November, 1834, he was
appointed to the same office in the Melbourne ministry
in April, 1835, and held it until the accession of Sir
Robert Peel, in September, 1841. During this term of
official service he had a prominent part in the settlement
of the Eastern question. He induced Russia, Austria,
and Prussia to unite with England in a treaty signed in
London in July, 1840, and to resist the progress of Me-
hemet Ali in Syria. France, which favoured Mehemet
Ali, was thus ignored in the settlement of the question.
He married about 1839 the first Lord Melbourne's
daughter, who was the widow of Earl Cowper. On
the formation of a new ministry by Lord John Russell,
in 1846, Palmerston again became minister of foreign
affairs. He pursued the policy of neutrality towards the
revolutionary movements by which Europe was con-
vulsed in 1848 and 1849, but he promptly recognized the
French republic, and favoured Napoleon's coup d'ltai
in 1851. In consequence of a disagreement with Lord
John Russell, he was removed in December of that year.
In December, 1852, Lord Aberdeen formed a coalition
ministry, in which Palmerston was secretary for the home
department, while the ministry "drifted" into war against
Russia. He succeeded Lord Aberdeen as prime min-
ister in February, 1855, and formed a cabinet chiefly
of Whigs or Liberals. Peace was restored with Russia
in March, 1856. Having been defeated in Parliament
on the subject of the Chinese war in March, 1857, he
appealed to the country, which sustained his policy by
a large majority. He failed in his effort to pass the
Conspiracy bill occasioned by Orsini's conspiracy against
Napoleon III., and was compelled to resign in February,
1858. In June, 1859, he succeeded Lord Derby as the
bead of a ministry in which Russell was foreign secretary
md Gladstone chancellor of the exchequer. He con-
inued to be prime minister until his death, October 18,
1865. He had no children. Palmerston retained in
lis old age much of the vigour and vivacity of youth,
Je was an excellent master of parliamentary science
and political tactics, and enjoyed a high degree of
popularity. He represented Tiverton in the House
of Commons from 1835 to his death.

was fond of music and riotous noise, and was the Inventor
of the syrinx, the pastoral pipe or flute. The principal
seat of his worship was Arcadia. He was regarded by
some philosophers as the symbol of the universe ; for
Pan signifies "all." Panic terrors were ascribed to

She became the wife of Epimetheus, who opened the

it, and could never be recovered, Hope alone remaining
in the casket.
