Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ... the same person can not be got, then we have to think of the means by which the harmonious combination of both maybe brought to produce one effect. Cheers. While upon this subject, I am tempted to quote some beautiful lines upon the subject from one of our oldest but wisest poets; one who calls himself, upon his tomb, "the servant of Queen Elizabeth, the councilor of King James, and the friend of Sir Philip Sidney,"--Lord Brooke. Speaking as if it was considered in those days that the impulses of industry must be entirely regulated by the ruling power, he prescribes the duty of that in regard to the production of manufactures: --To which end, power must nurseries erect, And those trades cherish which use many hands; Yet such as more by pains than skill effect, And so by spirits more than vipor stand: Whereby each creature may itself sustain. And who excel, add honor to their gain. Another remark I will read, which comes in the same passage, because it seems 88, written in that age, prophetic of what may be considered the characteristic comruereial policy of this day, --that policy which particularly owes, if not its origin, certainly its greatest impulse, to this city of Manchester. Cheers. He said: --Now, though wise kings do by advantage play With other states, by setting tax on toys. Which, if needs do permit, they justly may. As punishment for that vice which destroys, To real things yet must they careful be. Here and abroad, to keep them custom free; Providing clothes and foot! no burden bear, Then, equally distributing of trade. So as no one rule what we eat or wear. Or any town the gulf of all be made; For, though from few wealth soon be had and known, And still the rich kept servile by their own. Yet no one city rich, or more
