'The Scots (originally Irish, but by now Scotch) were at this time inhabiting Ireland, having driven the Irish (Picts) out of Scotland; while the Picts (originally Scots) were now Irish...and vice versa.

Slavery was, of course, an old established commerce dating back into earliest history http://kulhu.com/?library/the-collected-poems-of-maurice-baring. The old mercantile Empire was weakened during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries by a number of factors: by the abolition in 1807 of slavery in Britain itself, a movement led by the Evangelicals; by the freeing in 1833 of slaves held elsewhere in the Empire; by the adoption, after a radical change in economic perspective (due in large part to the influence of Adam Smith 's The Wealth of Nations), of Free Trade, which minimized the influence of the old oligarchical and monopolistic trading corporations; and by various colonial movements for greater political and commercial independence http://kulhu.com/?library/the-poetical-works-of-alfred-tennyson.

At thy command We bid adieu to worldly care, And join in gifts that all may share. `` `Gladly, with thee, I pace along, And of sweet fancies dream; Waiting till some inspired song, Within my memory cherish'd long, Comes fairer forth, With more of worth; Because that time upon its stream Feathers and chaff will bear away, * But give to gems a brighter ray.'
