His political economy, if the expression be allowed, simply pursued the purpose of assuring comfort able provision for the ruling race ; he therefore lightened the taxes on imports and increased those on exports— just like in the Spain of Philip II, which exhibits altogether several striking similarities to the State of the Crescent. And that idiotic system, which destroyed Spain’s Empire in a few decades, has been burdening the Balkan lands nearly five hundred years ! The Osmans, even in the glory of their victories and in the superabundance of pillaged wealth, were an Asiatic cavalry horde which never became at home on the soil of Western civilisation, and never got beyond the standpoint of nomadic warriors.
During about fourteen years of peace this land, with its measureless natural resources, burdened itself with a debt of over five milliards of francs, and finally reached that unparal leled Budget which out of £18,000,000 revenue put aside two for the Sultan’s household, fifteen for the interest on the National Debt, and only kept one million for the army, navy and officials. The ancient, humiliating head-tax on the Christians was removed; but as the Rayahs do not serve in the army, and the Osmanli did not wish to give them weapons, the ancient tax returned under the euphonious title of a war-contribution, and the sole result of the reform was the increased burden on the Christians.
The rise of the Rayahs has had permanent, definite results, therefore it will continue and progress. Recently the movement has already seized upon those countries which were hitherto held to be the most trust worthy ; the Bulgarians were always despised as the most servile of all the Rayahs ; Bosnia with its Mohammedan Begs were even highly esteemed as the strong arm of warlike Islam. However ominous this symptom seems, it must nevertheless be recognised that with every further step forwards the falling-away meets with increasing hindrances.
