Excerpt from Conservatism, Its Principle, Policy, and Practice: A Reply to Mr. Gladstone's Speech at Wigan, 23rd October, 1868 III. That the principles of the Conservative, fundamentally opposed to those of the Liberal, are as clear and decided now as ever; and that nothing can obliterate that distinction, each of the two parties representing a counter element of human nature. I shall base a general negative to Mr. Gladstone's charge upon my demonstration of these three pro positions. And I shall therefrom deduce a moral for which I venture to request, from both parties, a candid consideration. My object is conciliation. My words will be, I trust, words of moderation. I shall pass over, as lightly as I can, expressions which, however calculated to prejudice and irritate, may be attributed to the passionate flow of oratory. But I will not compliment away what I believe to be truth, - nor would any but those pre determined to differ wish me to do so.
