« This is not a moment when supineness or apathy can be tolerated. On the energies and determination of the liberal party, in all classes, depend the destinies of the empire. A most glorious opportunity now presents itself of strengthening that great cause of reform and amelioration to which we have been so long devoted. A new reign has commenced. Our Sovereign, with all the cordial confidence of an open heart and generous feeling, has placed herself unreservedly in the hands of a Liberal government. Let us by our exertions justify that step, and add to their means of efficiently serving her Majesty. Let us unite round her throne all that is good and wise and patriotic in the empire. Let our watchwords be-The Queen and Liberty'! The Queen and the Constitution! The Queen and Reform! Whatever principles are most dear to us, most deeply implanted in the hearts of the people of England, may be, without reservation, identified with the name of the Sovereign. Educated by one of the best and wisest of her sex, her illustrious mother, our Queen knows that no throne is so secure as that which is based on the affections of its subjects-no crown sits so lightly or so gracefully as that on which are harmoniously blended the liberties of the people and the prerogatives of monarchy.
• As for myself : As you have done me the honour, by desire of the meeting, to ask my advice, I will tell you candidly what my views are. They are what they have ever been, and are neither changed por modified. I wish to rally as large a portion of the British people as possible around the existing institutions of the country-the Throne, Lords, Commons, and the Established Church, I do not wish to make new institutions, but to preserve and strengthen the old. Herein lies the difference between me and my opponents. Some would confine the advantages of these institutions to as small a class as possible; I would throw them open to all who had the ability to comprehend them, and the vigour to protect them. Others, again, would annihilate them, for the purpose of forming new ones on fanciful and untried principles. I would, I repeat, preserve them, but increase their efficiency, and add to the number of their supporters. I have often stated the modes by which, as I imagine, that efficiency can be most readily produced; but I have ever accompanied those declarations, as I do now, with the announcement of my determination never to force them peremptorily or dogmatically on the consideration of the Government or the Parliament. If they are (as in my conscience I believe them to be) useful and salutary measures—for they are based on the most implicit confidence in the loyalty and good feeling of the people—the course of events, and the experience of every day, will remove the objections and prejudices which may now exist, and ensure their adoption whenever they are recommended by the deliberate and determined voice of the people.'
No. CXXXIII. will be published in October.
NOTE to the Article entitled Modern Egypt and the
Modern Egyptians,' in Number CXXXI.
In our notice of the valuable work of Mr Lane, in the abovementioned article, we omitted to state that it had been published under the superintendence of The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, We cannot, however, take any blame to ourselves for this oversight, as the fault rests with those who failed to state the fact, in the work itself, in a way to make it known. We now willingly acknowledge the omission, as it is but common justice that the Society should have due eredit for the aid it has lent to many useful publications, and which is pot always acknowledged in the Journals in which they are noticed or criticised.
