OFFICE OF THE Jan. 23, 1874. Professor Goldwin Smith has returned to England and lias just delivered an able speech at the Trades Union Congress at Regarding his past colonial policy as most we are glad at length to he able to find any points of agreement That we do may perhaps be accounted of his own Though he did expressly retract any of his former he spoke of the independence of which he once so ardently as a probable or possible event of the but without the least expression of The silence of such a man upon his great theme of former days is a notable indicating that the master either fails to gather a school around him or has learned to doubt his own We think a consciousness of this kind is displayed in the speech before as we shall presently the Professor's recital of his own colonial experience must strongly arouse the that his theories have been seriously shaken by the more practical knowledge he has acquired since he propounded Making full allowance for the fact that he is one of those men rightly or are prone to see things in very different lights from the great majority of their even of those as competent as themselves to form we feel we should do the Professor an injustice were we to suppose that the colonial experience which he gives us in his speech had not powerfully influenced his What conclusions must be drawn from the following extract There are in my in quite equal advantages to the States and in some respects greater mentioning one or he goes Then there is another advantage Canada I am sorry to say that the result of my observation in the United States is to convince me that feeling against England is very high and very as feel it Many of those in Canada have left like without any diminution of love for merely because other considerations drew them to the other side of the they still love the Old and they cannot bear to be among people who are always breathing hatred of it. I should be perhaps puzzled to tell you why it is that Americans hate England so Probably it might be traced to many There are the old and there are the celebrations of those old Then there is the influence of the and perhaps the influence of the Protectionists has something to do with it. In Canada you do not meet with that You are there among You are welcomed as an Englishman from the moment of your arrival in In the United States you have to live five years before you can be and until you are naturalised you are placed under certain disabilities in regard to the ownership of British Canada is thoroughly English there you find yourself not only among those who speak but among those who are in heart whose and customs are Were these words published without the author's name would any one suspect that he was none other than the veritable Professor Goldwin Smith who wrote the well-known letters in the Daily News about a dozen years ago Would it not be thought that this was an extract upon which some powerful argument in favour of the permanent unity of the Empire was by some advocate of Imperial federation not of Imperial In everything in the paragraph accords with our own except the statement that the Americans as a people entertain anything like hatred towards the Professor displays his incapacity to interpret national great defect which has impaired the usefulness of his considerable Were correct on this he should all the more strongly advocate the preservation of the unity of the British Imperial Unionists contend that innumerable evils would attend the separation of the different sections of the he we though fully recognizing the vast evils that have resulted from our separation from the United States has bequeathed us a legacy of If he be right he ought to be more decided in his support of British Imperial unity even than we Were Canada separated from England he could not expect that cordial and admirable feeling towards the Mother Country he so glowingly and the existence of which he for once agrees with general opinion in He must be unless his want - It 1� 1 L t 1 of appreciation of national feelings lead him more astray than even we think he can affection of the people of any Colony and of England for each would be chilled by separat that the He Bk. of Scotland & Co.
