It is not necessary to dwell upon the benefits which must also
result from the concentration of the efforts of distinct nations in the
prosecution of objects involving the common interests of all; or
upon the tendency which such co-operation must have to eliminate
the jarring elements of traditional prejudice and national animosity,
replacing these remains of a barbarous and retrograde system by
conceptions which will gradually consolidate European peace,
placing it under the protection of a strong, enlightened, and united
public opinion. These are the noble objects for which the new
" International Association for Customs Reform" is now working,
and by virtue of which it claims the sympathy and aid of all who
wish well to the cause of commercial liberty, and desire to substitute
for a system which has been justly designated a state of industrial
feudalism, one which, adopting mutual amity as its principle,
and resting upon the invariable laws of social order, must result in
the true welfare and progress of nations.
