Anticipating the immediate dissolution of Parliament, Sir Robert Peel had issued an address to the electors of Tamworth, justifying his commercial policy. In the opinion of Lord George Bentinck it set forth a statement as to the effect and operation of those financial measures which had taken place in the course of the last six years, which, if left altogether unrefuted, might have a dangerous tendency at the coming elections. The general effect of that statement was, that by the reduction of duties to a large extent, it was possible to relieve the people of this country of burdens amounting to more than seven millions and a half sterling with little or no loss whatever to the revenue. But the truth was, Sir Robert Peel in his reductions had dealt only with little more than ten millions sterling of the revenue of the country, and had left the remaining thirty-seven millions untouched. Now on that portion of the revenue with which alone he had dealt, there was a deficiency, through his changes, to the amount of five millions sterling, which loss was compensated by the increase on those very articles which Sir Robert had left untouched. It was the opinion of Lord George Bentinck that the conclusion which Sir Robert Peel had drawn from the comparatively barren results of the increased duties on imports carried by the Whigs in 1840, viz., that indirect taxation had reached its limit, and which was indeed the basis of his new system, was a fallacy, and that the anticipated increase of import duties had not accrued in 1840 in consequence of our having had three successive bad harvests, 鈥榓nd a bad cotton crop to boot,鈥?all of which had checked the consuming power of the community. Sir Robert Peel had been favoured by three successive good harvests and nearly ?锟?00,000,000 invested in six years in domestic enterprise. 鈥楾he interposition of Providence,鈥?said Lord George, 鈥榠s never a part of our debates.鈥? 淣ever broke down or cried once!?said Ffoulkes, with an enthusiasm and admiration born of champagne, and the relief of having got through the speech which had haunted him for weeks past and made his life a burden. 淣ever saw anything like it. Give you my word that I should have fainted at the very least. Awful ceremony! Enough to keep any thinking man single for the whole of his life. I say, old chap, hadn檛 we better be getting our togs together? Won檛 do to keep the bride waiting, you know; bad example; though, by gad! they don檛 want any example in that business, as a rule.? 淭he doctor gone down to the camp,?she said. 淗e said you might have anything to eat you fancied. Is there anything you檇 pertikler like, dearie?? 国产成 人 综合 亚洲,亚洲国产免费综合网,国产综合亚洲区 Lady Wyndover sunk on the couch and clasped her head. They went down to the great drawing-room. Lilias, Trafford, and Selvaine were already there. Trafford came forward, and said a few words to Esmeralda. 楬e will make a clever juggler when the old man is dead,?muttered the priest to the headman. 榃hat new trick is this?? Perceiving that the House began to be wearied with the details of the silk trade, which he had investigated with extraordinary zeal, he postponed until the specific vote in committee his objections to the reduction of the timber duties. The fact is, he had so thoroughly mastered all these topics, that his observations on each of them would have themselves formed a speech of sufficient length and interest. But he successfully checked any interruption by what may be fairly styled his dignified diffidence.
