She saw supreme in Constance that quality which she had recognized in the porters at Newhaven on landing—the quality of an honest and naive goodwill, of powerful simplicity. That quality presented itself to her as the greatest in the world, and it seemed to be in the very air of England. She could even detect it in Mr. Critchlow, whom, for the rest, she liked, admiring the brutal force of his character.  (A larger context is here (http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/5247/pg5247.html).

Please explain "for the rest".  Thanks.  --- tk
