37 psl. - There is no article of your food, there is no raw material of your trade, there is no necessity of your lives, no luxury of your existence which cannot be produced somewhere or other in the British Empire, if the British Empire holds together, and if we who have inherited it are worthy of our opportunities.
21 psl. - They may maintain if they like in all its severity the interpretation in my mind an entirely artificial and wrong interpretation which has been placed on the doctrines of Free Trade by a small remnant of Little Englanders, of the Manchester school, who now profess to be the sole repositories of the doctrines of Mr Cobden and Mr Bright.
29 psl. - Meanwhile the protected countries which you have been told, and which I myself at one time believed, were going rapidly to wreck and ruin, have progressed in a much greater proportion than ours. That is not all; not merely the amount of your trade remained stagnant, but the character of your trade has changed. When Mr. Cobden preached his doctrine, he believed, as he had at that time considerable reason to suppose, that while foreign countries would supply us with our food-stuffs and raw materials,...
48 psl. - I was so proud to hold (cheers), and that now, when I might, I think, fairly claim a period of rest, I have taken up new burdens, and come before you as a missionary of Empire, to urge upon you again, as I did in the old times, when I protested against the disruption of the United Kingdom...
39 psl. - I think that demand has, to a great extent, ceased ; but the people of this country will, in a not too distant time, have to make up their minds what footing they wish their Colonies to occupy with respect to them, or whether they desire their Colonies to leave them altogether. It is, as I believe, absolutely impossible for you to maintain in the long run your present loose and indefinable relations to your Colonies, and preserve those Colonies as parts of the Empire.
63 psl. - Agriculture, as the greatest of all trades and industries of this country, has been practically destroyed. Sugar has gone; silk has gone; iron is threatened; wool is threatened; cotton will go! How long are you going to stand it?
63 psl. - At the present moment these industries, and the working men who depend upon them, are like sheep in a field.
11 psl. - Or do you contemplate the possibility of their being separated, going off each in his own direction under a separate flag ? Think what it means to your power and influence as a country ; think what it means to your position among the nations of the world ; think what it means to your trade and commerce. I put that last. The influence of the Empire is the thing I think most about, and that influence, I believe, will always be used for the peace and civilisation of the world.
174 psl. - The colonial system, with all its dazzling appeals to the passions of the people, can never be got rid of except by the indirect process of Free Trade, which will gradually and imperceptibly loose the bands which unite our Colonies to us by a mistaken notion of selfinterest.
