Excerpt from The History of England, Vol. 1 of 2 The animal nature of man has, tmtil within a comparatively re cent period, held the chief sway in all political relations, and the settlement of political disputes. By the animal nature is here simply meant the impulses which lead to the love of acquisition and the glory of the battle-field, - both as purely animal impulses as any that mark the beasts that perish; both happily, now, though only very recently, reduced, in all most civilized comma nitiea under subjection to the moral and intellectual nature of man. Hence, in such political histories, battles and their details are too ti'equent. Nations, until a very recent period, have ia variably had recourse, in the settlement of all disputes, to the barbarous form of wager of battle, to decide the right, although, by the express laws of almost every nation in Europe, wag-sr of battle between individuals has been long abolished. It is extra ordinary that so barbarous and absurd a custom should have been thus so inconsistently persevered in, in the one case, while it has been abolished in the Other. The public mind in England is, however, at the present time, in general, as much opposed to the appeal to this antiquated ordeal in the one case as the other; and it is to be hoped that the page of the future historian will abound chieży in details of the moral and intellectual history of that as well as other nations; and that the history of society, of science, and of literature, will take high precedence of the his tory of politics. Meantime, the history of the politics of every nation must be studied by 'all who would observe the advance of nations, or truly understand their actual condition. More especially is that study important in respect of those nations where, as in England, the struggle between general independence and assumed individual prerogative, has been long continued and eventful, though crowned at last with noble and glorious success.
