This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

PREFACE. 

JIn announcing a continuation of our labours, we have 
once more to thank our numerous and kind Friends. In 
taking a Review, however, of the Times, as usual, we fed 
ourselves much in the situation of £neas, when he made 
his perilous journey to visit the shade of his father Anchises. 
We have to pass a River Styx^ and the courts where 
Minos is sitting in judgment, and inflicting punishment upon 
various Revolutionary Ixions, Tityuses, and Prometheuies^ 
in order to arrive at those peaceful classical shades, where 
the spirit of Musseus sings in heavenly strains the grand 
elementary principles of creative power. We trust, how* 
ever, that those Giant Sons of Earth, Anarchy and Irie-' 
ligion, will not remove the mountains which the Parliament 
tary power of our Constitutional Jupiter has laid upon them. 
In a Country like our own, not dependent upon ter» 
ritory, but on commerce, arts, and a paper circulation, it is 
impossible that any other than pure selfish Adventurers 
can desire Revolution. Annihilate the Funds and our 
Bank Notes, what property is there left in England? We 
believe that it was Mr. Burke who said, that, if all the real 
property of England was divided in equal shares among the 
whole population, there would not be more than one week's 
subsistence. Commerce could not subsist without security, 
peace, law, a circulating medium, and property guaranteed. 
But whence could those arise, in an unsettled state of 
things i Conceive an annual income of fifty millions, spent 
among the people, diverted from trade and luxury in the 
greater part, and the arts thrown for support and encou- 
ragement upon the ignorant, who do not regard them. We 
do not wish to see that venerable matron Britannia, " the 
Old Lady in Threadneedle-streety" placed in a course of the 
most violent and poisonous medidnei by our political quacks, 
because we believe^ that the fawJlrQ pioeess would cec- 
mnly end in her dissolution; « twsXmTOX^wJA.

but in trutli lUiroiitaniiiialeLl. Honest men ousrlit lo •Kaii J 
SO high a family name from sac!i viHainous liberties and 
mischievous designs^ 

What may "be the fittest remedies for political hydrophobia 
we leave to our authorized and legitimate State-physicians. 
Standing unmoved on the rock of our Constitution^ we 
trust. that Sylvanus Urban will preserve the proud attitude 
of a Guardian of Truth, Piety, Virtue, and Science. Miser-* 
able as it is, to see our lower population dispersed, like 
wild beasts and birds of prey, in search of plunder : grating 
as is their harsh croak ; we yet hope that the rising of the 
British Lion in power, in the glory of his might, will 
compel them to fly for safety to the peaceable regions of 
security and industry. Upon the productive labours of 
the Nation now wholly depends its possible well-being : for 
by what other means is the Revenue to be supported, and 
the. population to be fed ? Our infatuated Revolutionists cry 
out for 'bread, but will only receive a stone. They would 
support life by inflammatory speeches, and public meetings, 
and precarious robbery. Pretending to be in a state of starv- 
ation, they look not for the spade, but the sceptre. They 
pray not to their God ,' and they insult his Providence, which 
has been pleased to ordain inequality of station, only that 
the r)ch may be bankers for the poor, and disperse among 
them those comforts, which under no other system they 
could permanently possess. 

Where there is no Literature, there is no Civilization : and 
wretched would be the support which it would derive from 
the friends of mere factious oratory. Their matter, to please 
their hearers, must consist of low crude opinions, and er- 
roneous principles. Can Adam Smith be quoted with success 
among such hearers as our Northern Republicans f If the 
Bible be despised, will Blackstone be regarded ? 

The Friends of Literature are therefore called upon to act, 
as well as the Friends of Order, lest the Barbarians divert 
the river of public opinion from its channel, in order to bury 
Science, as their ancestors the Goths did Alarick, in its 
hollow bed, and so restore the stream, and bury in eternal 
oblivion its honourable grave.

p. 5%5, will be described by Sir R. C. H.; 
■nd Its interesting Church will not be over- 
looked. It is in grest forwardness, and 
will be the first of the Wiltshire Hundreds 
published. 

A Correspondent states, in answer to 
an inquiry iu Part 1. p. 498, that Sir 
George Hungerford, of Cadenham, co. 
Wilts, married Frances daughter of 
Charles Seymour, baron of Trowbridge, 
who died anno 1664. He was son of Sir 
Firancis Seymour, third son of Edward 
Lord Beauchamp, who was created baron

(p. 498.) "that John BasaeU married

that before the passing of the Act of 1814, 
the Universities were louked up to (and 
wiih strict propriety), as Subscribers or 
Purchasers of such laborious and useful 
works ; whereas now the effect is, that the 
gratuitous delivery not only destroys the 
sale of those eleven copies, but iotei feres 
with the sale of several copies to peisons 
who would otherwi:»e be purchasers, had 
they not access to the Public Libraries. 
For a masterly article, exposing the injus- 
tice and impolicy of the Copy-right Acts, 
see No. XLI. of the Quarterly Review, for 
May 1819. 

V. K. M. wishes particularly to know 
why Oxford obtained the name of " Rhe- 
dycina," as it is used by respectable au<

died young ; 9. Eustachia, married to Mr. 
Campbell, of Bangertoo in Pembrokeshire : 
9. Fraacis, who died unmarried in 1 802 : 
and 4. Eleanora, who married John Daire 
of Orleigh in Devonshire, esq. Francis 
Bassett left his property by will to Joseph, 
eldest ton and heir of John Daire, who 
now addresses you, and who will be happy 
to five you any further information it 
may be in his power, if you will address 
to him at Watesmouih, near Jlfra- 
eumbe." 

£. W. is informed, that what he has 



answering to our Army Li^t was published 
in the time of Charles I. and the Civil 
Wars ; and also to point out the way in 
which the Regiments were then raised, if 
by the Colonels, and in the couuties to 
which those Colonels belonged. 

** An Enquirer" desires to know who 
was the author of a very curious and ably 
written defence of O. Cromwell bearing 
this title, ** A short Critical Review of 
the political Life of O. Cromwell, Lord 
Protector, &C. By a Gentleman of the 
Middle Temple." His copy is of the 4th

religious edifices, and were probably put

Antiquarius (of Newcastle upon Tyne) 
exprestes his surprise, that when the works 
of Shaktpeare, Dryden, Swift, Johnson, 
9te. fcc. are frequently reprinted, no 
translation has been given to the publick 
of any of our old English Historians ; and 
he recommends the subject to the learned 
ID Oxibrd and Cambridge. But he little 
considert what a small chance there would 
be of such workt paying their expenses.

Bishop Gibson, of which Mr. Noble speaks 
in the introduction to his '* Memoirs of

tion respecting a book entitled, <* The Life 
of Mrs. Margaret Andrewes of Lathbury, 
1680,** and who the person therein men- 
tioned was ; also uf a school there in the 
time of Queen Elizabeth, of which the 
master was ■ Shepherd ; and whether 
Francis the first Lord Annesley was bom 
at Newport Pagnel, of which place he was 
created baron. 

A RsADBR says, that B.'s observations.

correct. The lines he quotes were written

I ought to have mserted it in my 
Botes. But the nupera emendandi 
r^hie$f mentioned by Archbishop 
Seeker, in his Oratio SgnodalU^ was 
always in my mind i though the cor- 
rupt state of the text has compelled 
bis Grace, throughout his annota- 
tions, to propose as many corrections 
as the boldest critic among us. Wbeo- 
ever, therefore, a sense which seems 
worthy of the sacred writers arises 
Irom the present text, I thought it 
the more eligible way to admit iti 
though in my study I might give a 
secret preference to a conjectural 
emendation. 

** Yon are the only person that has 
spoken out to me on the subject of 
Bishop Lowth's neoteric style of 
translation, and unnatural arrange- 
ment of words. Mr. Blavney follow- 
ed him too closely in this. 1 have 
the honour of being well acquainted 
with both Authors. What I said was 
very painful to me. But I thought 
that their manner of rendering was 
likely to furnish a serious argument 
against undertaking a new version. 

** Translating a single book of the 
Hebrew Scriptures is not the work of 
one man. He cannot attend to every 
thing. Friendly communications, like 
your*s to me, are necessary. 1 sent 
Bishop Lowth snch material observa- 
tions as occurred to me on a diligent 
Beading of his Isaiah i and his Lord- 
ship was so good as to say that he 
would have admitted them into an 
Appendix, if they had come to him 
early enough for his second edition. 

Mr.Blajney's work will be very use-, 
ful to better Uebreans, who may 



hereafter translate Jeremiah. But, 
in my opinion, his deviations from the 
true sense pf the text are endless ; and 
therefore I did not attempt pointing 
tbem out to him. 

**I ofiered some of ray friends on the 
English Bench a hundred guineas, as 
a subscription towards procuring a 
transcript of the Ambrosian MS. men- 
tioned in my preface, p. x. and print- 
ing it. This is a favourite object 
with me. 

*' A year after the publication of my 
last work, ITS copies were sold in 
England, and six in this country. 

"As to translating the same Hebrew 
word by the same English one, 1 rea- 
dily allow the latitude contended for 
by you. Whenever the version is 
made bald by it, let a more elegant 
word be substitnled. But let unne- 
cessary variety be avoided, in the 
N. T. xo7o( is thrice joined with /lio>1^- 
Oo;. Why should we render in one place 
' by weariness and painfulnesf,* and 
in two other, ' by labour and travel ?' 

**With the highest respect, and with 
the warmest thanks for your very 
friendly and useful communications, 
I am. Rev. Sir, your very faithful and 
much obliged humble servant, 

William Watexford*.'* 



" Dear Sir, 



Norwich^ 
Aov. I, 1789. 
"From a conversation with our 
worthy friend Sir John Wodehouse, 
I collected that he had offered you 
the living of Barnham Brorae, which 
Mr. Wodehouse is about soon to va- 
cate. The disinterested principles on 
which you declined the offer, certainly 
do you honour : at the same time I 
cannot help wishing you to re-con- 
sider the matter. To solicit and to 
accept are two very different things. 
The situation of the cure is such as 
renders it perfectly compatible with 
what you hold at present i and tho' 
you may reasonably object to under- 
take the laborious part of the duty in 
your own person, yet whoever you 
should eropiuy as a curate would act 
immediately underyour own eye and 
direction. The offer, I am satisfied, 
was made on the part of Sir John, 
purely from the esteem and regard 
he has for you, without the smallest

aad hif " Tales from Shakipeare,** 
with very coniiderable intcreit (third 
edit. 1816), ID two Yolamei, at well a« 
bii '* Specimens of fingliih Poeti^** 
who lived in the time ofShakipeare. 

We were Datarally (gratified on lee- 
in«: announced some time liuce in the 
public prints, **The Works orCharles 
Lamb.*' We counted on hnvinj!: lome 
g«Mid feelines and agreeable recol- 
lections awuceoed i and we have not 
been diMppointed. The Writer tells 
Uf, in a Dedication to Mr. Coleridge* 

•* Tli.it when he wrote * John Wood- 
ville* (k tragedy, contuned in the first 
vt*1ume), he nerer propn^d to himself 
any distinct devistjon from common Kng- 
lish; that be had been newly initiated 
in the writings of our elder Dramatists, 
l^aumont and Fletcher, and Mas^inf^er, 
thpy being then a first-love; and that, 
from what he was iojreskfy conversant 
in, it wa< no wonder if hi^ language im- 
perceptibly took a tinge.'* 

This tinge is occasionally found in 
Mr. Lamb*s other poems, as well as in 
his Tragedy ; and different readers 
may form different opinions of them, 
in some measure, according to their 
different opiniqns of the style and 
manner of some of our more early 
writers. 

These two Tolumes contain various 
performances of Mr. Lamb, both in 
▼erse and prose, several of which, 
though we l>elieTe not all, have ap- 
pear^ already l>efore the pub lick in 
diff«frent forms. \h% ** Recollections 
on Chrisrs Hospilsl,*' it occurs In ns, 
were printed some lime hack in our 
Miscellany j: ; and it would be difficult 
to bestow on Ihem loo much prai.ic; 
though we apprehend, as we did at 
the time, that their full beauties can 
be entered into by no readers but 
such as have l>een educated in that 
most excellent Institution. 

But firstas toour Anthofs poetry: 
and here we perceive we must be cau- 
tious of handling Charles Lamb, in our 
critical capacity, seeing he will be li- 
able to slip through our fingers. His 
" John Woodville" is professedly a 
tragedy ( his " Mr. 11.** a farce ; and 
hif** Witch'* he calls a dramnlic sketch 
of the seventeenth century. And 
here, were •we disposed to criticize, 
wc should know how to proceed ; at 
least how we ought to pr(»rccd. But, 
besides these, there are manv poelical 
sk etches ia his work si. im w hich,

though the Author appears some- 
what proprid persona^ yet he evi- 
dently ofien gives us a touch of the 
dramatic. Of this description are 
" Hypocondraicus, a Vision of Re- 
pentance T' and, we suspect, some 
others. They arc well done, in their 
way ; that is to say, they are poetical, 
and we are pleased ; but we need not 
he (we suspect) extravagant in our 
sympathies; our real sympathies may 
be reserved for,the proper occasions. 

His " Farewell to Tobacco" is a 
sort of mixt poem. We are inclined 
to think, judging at least from the 
cast of this poem, that wc here dis- 
cover nomeihing of the real Charles 
/ira7lI^, struggling with «tro(ig passion, 
with //^rennd hate of tobacco; though 
wc suspect that here also is much 
that is purely dramatic. Uut whether 
Mr. Lamb is really speaking in bis 
own, or a borrowed character, his 
more particular friends, '* his blest 
Toliacco boys,** best know. Speak- 
ing in our own humble capacity, mor^ 
crilico^ wc must say, that this liltic 
fancy work possesses great merit, be- 
ing replete with whim, wit, and na/- 
vetif of political and classical pic- 
tures, and that Mr. Charles Lamb is 
thereby entitled to all his poelica /i- 
ccntia, together with a dispensation 
(so far as he may be personally inlro- 
duced into this Poem, to smoke aslong 
a« he pleases, or to leave off" smok- 
ing as soon as he pleases. 

Allowing Mr. L. hi-i full liberty to 
dramatize, and laughing with him in 
the proper places, we arc prepared 
also to be serious with him, and to 
give our real sympathies where Ihcy 
are justly due ; for we find in hia 
poetical pieces much moral feeling, 
and should jud^o him lo he a kind- 
hcarled, gentle creature, of which 
his name niav be a true emblem. (Sec 
his ** Sonnet on the Family Name.'*^ 
The paternal and social feelings we 
shoulil suppose him to possess in a 
high degree, from his *• Address to 
Charles Lloyd; lo T. L. H. a child; 
to Marlin Cha. Burney, Ksq. ; to his 
Brother ; and the ihrrc friends,^*

I the world except Bllora. The 
ituly opened by Mr. Salt was die- 
by Mr, Belxooi, by what he calls 
n tudkjTf which has guided him in 
\ the second pyramid: what this 
I "know not ; but certainly he has 
KMt successful, and cherishes the 
B, if supported by our GoTern- 
if doing much more. In my opi- 
I is too Taluable a man for us to 
to labour for any other nation. 
ppcars to be the object for which 
Mt anxious though he has nothing 
m but the produce of a few statues 
the Comte de Forbin (who has 
1 this country travelling for the 
government), to replace ihose 
niches in the Louvre now vacant 
bavmg forced them to deliver back 
rorks of art to their original pos- 
Mr. Salt showed me some beau- 
•eimens of papyrus which he had 
taken out of the mommy wrap- 
They all appeared to have at the 
ht roll a representation of religious 
», and the figures were painted in 
ban one colour. He pointed out 
maU wax figures; one with the 
f a woman, one with an eagle's 
me with a monkey's, and another 
at of a ram : these were uniformly 
in the better kind of mummies. 
re that sculpture had been carried 
great perfection among the antient 
aosy be showed me a small leg and 
lade of wood, about 10 inches long, 
orrectly carved, and equal to, if 
passing, any thing I bad previously 
He showed me also a piece of 
mvered- with hieroglyphics, which 
ed exactly as ifit bad been printed. 
I mummies which be had opened 
wn the front of their person broad 
of leather, gilt, as fresh as the day 
'era made; and I have understood 
Lding has, in several instances, been 
I to be well known to the Egyptians. 
. . Both Mr. Salt and Mr. Belxoni 
Miraptured with the sarcophagus 
lad discovered; and when I fully 
sheoded its beauty and value, my 
s were congenial with theirs wiih- 
viag seen it. A piece of alabaster 
3 inches long would in itself be a 
ty ; but when it is considered that 
:b pains have been used in the ela- 
carving of so fragile a material, it 
. surpasses belief. It is made some- 
a the form of a human body, but 
les of it are not above two and a half 
thick, all deeply carved in minia- 
Igorca representing triumphs, pro* 
IS, sacrifices, &c. All these figures 
lioed In the 6eepefi blue; aod whea 
y plMced in the latide, the aJabMi» 



ter being transparent, they appear npon 
a pellucid ground. It was found in what 
Mr. Belzoni supposes to be a tomb of the 
god Apis, and was most unaccountably 
placed across the top of a hollow passage 
(which leads 300 feet beyond, into the 
solid rock, and has not yet been explored 
to the utmost) with not above one inch 
resting on one of the sides, so that, had 
it slipped, it would have fallen and 
been shattered to pieces. We visited the 
conrt-yard which I had passed through 
last night, and snrveyed four statues of 
black granite as large as life, with women's 
bodies and heads of lions. They are in a 
sitting posture, with the emblematical key 
of the Nile in one of their hands. Bel- 
zoni 'discorered these, with about thirty 
others, deep under the sand. They had 
been deposited there without regularity, 
as if to be concealed. Two of these he 
had sold to the Comte de Forbin for the 
French Museum. Mr. Salt next drew my 
attention to two wooden figures as large as 
life, found at Thebes in a standing posi- 
tion. They were corered with a sort of 
varnish, and had their eyes and part of 
their bodies inlaid with some metal." 

On the 10th of March, 1818, the author 
set off with Messrs; Salt and Belzoni to 
view the Pyramids. He pays a just tri- 
bute to Capt Cavlglia, who so success- 
fully explored the well as it used to be 
called in the great pyramid ; to him aad 
Mr. Salt, in laying open the front of the 
sphinx ; and to Belzoni, of whose labonn 
iu opening the second pyramid he gives 
some particulars. <*At a distance were 
Arabs employed on the third pyramid, by 
Belzoni; and certainly, if we may judge 
from his former success at Thebes, and 
the second pyramid, it is to be hoped he 
will not labour in vain.'' 

A few weeks ago, that accomplished 
and gallant oflicer, Col. Straton, of the 
Enniskilleu dragoons, presented to the 
Museum of the University of Edinburgh, 
through Professor Playfair, an Egyptian 
mummy, in a very high state of preserva- 
tion. It was brought from Thebes by the 
Colonel himself, along with several other 
Egyptian remains, which he has also pre- 
sented to the College. This mummy, to 
judge from its triple iuclosure, rich and 
varied hieroglyphical ornaments, and si- 
tuation when in Thebes, must be the body 
of a person of the highest rank, and which 
was probably consigned to the catacombs 
3000 years ago.

is absolutely necessary that there should 
be a tricar surplus of the income of the

June 8. 

On the motion of Mr. ilf. A. Tuiflor, a 
Select (Committee was appointed to Inquire 
into the practicability of constructing 
Steam-engines in such a manner as to 
make them consume their own Smoke, in 
order lo prevent the injurious cflfects to 
health from the numerous steam-engines 
in the metropolis. 

The House having gone into a Com- 
mittee on the Slave Registry Act, Mr. 
Guulburn moved that the Chairman should 
akk leave to bring in a Bill, establishing 
some new regulations on this subject 
The plan to be proposed was, that there 
should he an office in this country, in 
which duplicates should be lodged of the 
number of slaves in each colony ; that an 
individnal should be appointed for its so- 
periutendance ; that power of reference to 
the duplicates in this office should be given 
to all parties ; and that on the removal of 
slaves from one colony to auotht'r, certifi- 
cates should be given to that effect ; and 
that precautions should be adopted to pre-' 
vent abuses of the permission given by 
the Act 4Gth of the Kiug, to slaves lu ac- 
company their mastrrs from one colony tu 
another. After a short conversation, the 
motion was agreeil to, and, on the H<V«ih} 
being resumed, leave was given to bring 
in the BilU 

Mr. Brogtlen brought up the Report of 
the Fuiance Resolutions. On the question 
that they be agreed to, Mr. Oirieen op- 
posed the whole plaq of the Minister, and 
especially new taxes, lie could- net con* 
sent to additional burthens on hU co«-'

1 8 1 9. J Proceedings in the late Seishn of Parliament 7 $ 



In aniwer to tome obscnrations by 
Lord Darnhjf^ Loid M^linUe taid, he 
thought it advisable to imitate the best 
BBodets of ship-building among foreign 
•at ions, and also that we should liave a 
certain number of vessels At to meet 
t^iose of ibc American Government. The 
RMrines exceeded in number those of 
fiiroer peace establishments by from 
2600 to 2000. The crews of the guard- 
ships were employed in the pursuit of 
aao^lers, but, ou emergency, could 
easily bt recalled to their own ships. 

Earl Qieif moved the second reading 
of Ihe Bill for repealipg the Act declar- 
ing the belief iu the doctrine of tran- 
substantiation and the invocation of saiiiis 
to be idolatrous. The repeal would not, 
lie observed, admit Catholicks into ^ttlK;r 
Uouse of Parliament, whilst the Act of 
Supremacy was in forces but after the 
couccssioBt which had beeu already made, 
why should such an odious badge of in- 
tolerance be gratuitously maintained. 

The Bishop of Norvjick spoke strongly 
in favour of the Bill, which be hoped 
would pave the way for the repeal of all 
the drvqualificatioas under which the Ca* 
tboliclu laboured. 

Tlie Archbishop of Canterbury opposed 
It, as removing the only effectual seco- 
riiy against the admission of Catholicks 
to seats in Parliament; for the oath of 
rapremaey bad formerly proved no bar 
to their silting. 

The Earl of Liverpool took the sane 
view of the quesiioo. 

Lords Gfenvilte and Uarroxcby supported 
the Bill, which was opposed by the Lord 
CiaHceUor and Lord Baihurst ; and on a 
division, the motion for the second reading 
was negatived by 141 to 82. 

In the Commons, the same day, peti. 
tions were presented from the Common 
Council of London, and from Westmin- 
ster, Soutbvark, Rochester, Plymouth, 
Uamfgate, Forfar, aud other places^ 
against the Foreign Enlistment Bill. 

Mr. IVeslern moved an addrej>s to the 
Prince Kcgeiit, praying his Ruyal High- 
m'xs to direct that in future commissions 
of gaol delivery should be held mure fre- 
qutrntly. 

The motion was opposed by the AUor- 
ney Central, who argued, that as the 
Courts at Westminster- hall were at pie- 
scnt constituted, it would be impo5Sihle 
for the Juitges to go to the Circuits 
more frequently. The learned Gentle- 
man recommended that Ihe Couuty Ses- 
sions should be held eight limes a year, 
by which the evil complained of would 
be lessened. To set the ({UCKtioti a&ide. 
for the ptrscut he movtJ the previous 
c|ucstioftv which was canicd. 
On ibc moUtm of Air. I/ume, ievtial 



returns were ordered relative to the re- 
venue and expenditure of Ceylon, the 
Mauritius, Malta, and the Cape of Good 
ifope. A motion for a return of the ex- 
pense of the Ionian Islands to tliis coun- 
try was also agreed to; but one for an 
account of their revenue was negatived^ 
on the ground ifaat their revenue was ootuui* 
derthecontroul of the British Government. 

The Report on the Budget was thea 
brought lip, and the resolutions read. 

Lord Afilton proposed an ameudmeot on 
that rtilalive to malt, for a reduciion of 
the duty. It was negatived without a di- 
vision, and the original resolution waacar-* 
ricd, on a division, by 12() to 75. 

Mr. t/L P» Grant moved amendments oa 
all the other resolutions respecting tbo 
new taxes, to the effect of keeping ihe se* 
veral duties at their present ratei ^ but ho 
did not divide the House on any of them ; 
and they were consequently carried, and 
Bills ordered to be brought in purtiuioi 
to the resolutions. 

The Allorney General moved that tho 
House should go into a Committee on the 
Foreign Enliiitment Bill. It was opposed 
by Colonel DavieSf Sir t/l Mackintosh, Mr. 
Scarlett, and Mr. Brougham, and supported 
by Mr. Robinson, Mr. Canning, Mr. Ser- 
jeant Copley, and Lord CastUrcagh. I'lie 
motion was then carried without a divi- 
sion ; and an instruction to th^^ Commit- 
tee moved by the Attorney General, for 
inserting, in addition to the first clause, 
words repealing two Acts passed by the 
Irish Parliament respecting enlistments 
for foreign service, was also agreed to. 

I'he House then went into the Commit- 
tee, when the first clause was amended, as* 
just stated, and was agreed to without any 
opposition, being for the repeal ofiexist- 
ing Acts. On the second clause a divisioa 
took place, when it was carried by. 246 to 
174. I1ie other clauses gave rise to a long 
discussion, but were ultimately <:arricd« 
with some verbal ameoduicuts« 

^une 1 1 . 

The Chancellor lif.the Exchequer brought 
in a Bill for raiding the sum of 12,000,000^ 
by way i4 annuity ; and also a Bill for 
raising 240,000^. by lottery. 

Sir J, Yorkc alluded to the important 
improvement 8 introduced in Ship-building 
by Mr. Scppings, as stated by the Com- 
mittee of Finance, and urged the propit- 
ciy of couferiing ou him some national 
reward. 

Sir /. Cojin and Mr. Croker panegyrized 
the merits of Mr. Scppings, and stated that 
Ikj had received a pre.sent of 1000/. from 
Government, and had been appoitiu-d to 
a luci alive situation in the naval beivice.

Extract of a private letter from Flo- 
rence, dated June 20, 1819.— "The Prin- 
cess of Wales has grown extremely l.nrge 
aud I'orpulent. She has recovered from 
the shock of her incomparable daiiiihier's 
death ; but it a fleeted her powerf-.illy at 
tbe time. Apart from political considera- 
tions, the circumstances under which iihe 
received the news were enough to produce 
the most painful effect on her feelings. 

" On the arrival of the courier, there 
was no confi<Iential person near her who 
understood the English lauguap:e ; and, 
iu the hope of finding very different in- 
furmition, she herself opened the letter 
which conveyed the fatal iutelligence. 
^>he fainted, and was ill for a length of 
lime afterward. At present she resides 
at Pesaro, a small town not far from 
Ancuna. Her suite and establishment 
are not on the greatest scale. Young 
Austin, the boy whom the Princess 
adopted, is grown a fine handsome yonng 
man. Tlie Princess has now taken a 
fancy to another child, the son of a pea- 
sant, of whom she is said to be equally 
fond. He goes with her every where. 
Her chief amusement is the opera, which 
■he almost entirely supports. 

*' Tbe residence of the Princess is not 
far from tbe ses, but there is no view of it, 
omws io M bill or small mnuataia which 
j-iteM bcin:feti^ &te bss been risited by 



several of the German and Italian Prince s, 
and one of the Archdukes paid her a 
visit lately. 

** Lord Byron still continues to reside at 
Venice. Few jxirsons, whether Venetian <: 
or his own countrymen, are suffered to 
enter his house. His usual plan of see • 
ing company is in his box Ht the opera, to 
which he resorts every evening. — He 
passes his time in great indoleuce, ex- 
cept as to riding. He rises very late, 
breakfasts, rides till dusk, diaes, goes to 
the opera, returot home, and goes to bed. 
This plan is seldom broken in upon, hut 
when intermpted by a favoured visitor — 
such as the bookseller——, who is par- 
ticularly honoured ; and deserverlly so, 
for he is a man of tetters. He is an ex- 
cellent scholar, well acquainted with mo- 
dern languages, and particularly witli En- 
glish literature. As u$nat, his Lordship 
is mnch reserved to the world ; when 
otherwise, to a favoured friend, he is per- 
hapi too eommunicative, that is, of his 
private affairs and private feelings. He 
seems not to regret the severity of his 
poetical attacks. He hardly knows wlu n 
he writes ; and when he does, it is off- 
hand. The original copy goes to the 
press, and sometimes without any era- 
snre. At this moment he has no manu- 
script of his last poem Mazeppa. He 
sent the only one to England.** 

According to letters from Naples of the 
4th, accounts had been received there by 
telegraph of a terrible eroption of /Etna, 
which began on the Istof June. Cata- 
nia, built at the foot of the mountain, wai 
in the greatest danger. Vesuvius has 
also thrown out a strong eruption, in 
which the lava directed itself towards 
Pompeii. Violent shocks of an earth- 
quake have been felt at Viterbo. 
GERMANY. 

Another dreadful attempt at as<ns<iina- 
tion took place on the ^d ult. at Schwal- 
bach, in the Duchy of Nassau ; aud by 
another (Jerman Student. A young man, 
named Lehning, son of a physician at Id. 
stein, in the same duchy, and a Sttideut 
at Heidelberg, took it into ht« head thai 
he should be rendering a particular ser- 
vice to his country by ridding it of M. 
Ibel, President of the Regency of Wishad 
(who enjoys the confidence of the Duke), 
and determined to assassinate him. For 
this purpose, he went to him at Schwa I- 
bach, and attempted to stab him with a 
dagger; which, however, only cut thnmgh 
the clothes of M. Ibel, but did not wound 
him. The latter, being a powerful man, 
soon disarmed the assassin, and prevented 
him from using two loaded pistols wh'\cV\ 
he bad in hh pockets. The astaum wa«

OCrtJRRENClCS IN LONDON 
AND ITS VICINITY. 

July 3« The folluwiiig Bulletin was 
<xhibi"'d at St. James's Palace : 

'* irindtor Cattle, Juhj 3. His Majcs- 
ty*s tioUily heatib coutinnes to befnm; 
and there has been no sensible alteration 
iu the state uf hit Majesty's disorder dur- 
ing the last niuiitli." 

A Pnvy Council was lately held at the 
Treasury -chambcry* presided over by 
Lord Harrowby, and consisiing of the 
Jx>rd Cl»ief Ju»iicts of the Courts of 
King's l>t'iich and Common Pleas, and 
Ibe l.ord Cliief Baron uf the Kxcliequur, 
Sir WilliHui Soott, aud Sir William Cram, 
and jttfuded by the Altoniey-Ciciieral, 
&<*. to investigate the cirrumsiances ai- 
leiiding the draih of a Maiti'tw at AlhriK, 
who was >hot by Mr. W. Kinnaird (the 
son of the Magistrate) in January lakt. 
Mr. Kinnaird had presented himself at 
It] aha for tiial, and was sent home a 
prisoner to England. After a full inves- 
tigation and examination, Mr. Kinnaird 
was discharged ; being hon(»urably ac- 
<|uitt«'d of any charge against him. It 
appeared by the evidence tran«mitt(.'d 
by the Cousnis of the Levant, that the 
event of firing on the dirceased was in 
ab»ol,ute 84'ir-defencc. 

Tlie Lord Chief Justice laid it down, 
a few days ago, that a person brought 
fiom the conntry to London to give evi. 
dence, is entitled to bcf paid for bw loss 
of time, as well as lii'k expt»n«et. btfore 
be ii aworn ; and the Coani^l for the 
lilainiiflT ofidertoak that it tbuuld bt dime,

yvr/BMr of ik9 mmcomlmct of m deputy, 



According to an Ai-t paused the Sd inst. 
for amending the laws reapccting the Set- 
tlement of the Poor, no ptvson can ac- 
quire a settlement unless by renliug a 
house or land of the annual value of ttn. 
fHmiidsf and honajide hiied by siicb p<T- 
hon, an<l the lent actually paid by him for 
a year. 

Oue of the now Act« of Pailiament 
makes the copyholds of lunatics liable for 
their d«'bt*. 

An iifiioial return lo an oider of the 
lloiiiif of CoBimoii!) ofthe effect ire strength 
of the Hiiiiah Army, on the ^ih May, 
states it at 14,116 cavalry, 6,41^ foot, 
guards, and 84,812 infantry. — Graud 
toul. 10^,349. 

By an order in Council of the 12th inst. 
it appears, that a prohibition is laid upon 
the export of gunpowder, saltpetre, and 
every sort of ammunition, from this king- 
dom, to all Ihe |M)it8 in the Spanish do- 
iuinion«. The onhr is a corollary to the 
proposition of the Foreitrii Kuli»tment Aci; 
and, indeed, it was only fair, that as we 
would not permit our countrymen to fight 
in the armies of the South Amnicans, so 
we ought not lo supply their opponents 
wiib ammunition. 

The case agreed to be laid before the 
four Judges of the Court of King's Bench for 
their opinion, respecting a cause between 
Lord Clinton, the lion. Mrs. Darner, aud 
tl»e Marquis Cbolmondeley, on whicli pro- 
perty to the amount of 14,000/. per annum 
depends, was taken in<o cousideiation n 
few d««3fs ago, wlieu Mr. Justice Iloiroyd 
and Mr. Justice Bea cuiucidrd wiihi the 
Master of the Rolls in favour of Mrs. 
Damer and the Marquis; while Mr. Jus- 
tice Bay ley was of a contrary opinion.

Mr. Alexander Wilson, gunsmith, of 
Sherrard- street, Piccadilly. The deceased, 
mfler bis shop had been shut up for the 
evening, went out with an intention of 
taking a walk in the Kegeni*s Park : when 
be reached Oxford-street, he was seized 
with a pain in the head, and set down on 
a step of a shop : a coachman on the 
stand, observing his situation, imme- 
diately went towards him, and asked him 
if he wai unwell } The deceased replied,

play with foine otber buys in a lofl at 
Mr. Watford's brewery, which it over 
that part in which large casks are depo- 
sited to receive the beer as it is brewed, 
and which is generally tnnmd into them 
from a irap-door in the Icrft. The trap- 
door had been left open, as the snen were 
about to commence the filling of a 40- 
bogshead cask, the head of which hap- 
pened to be directly uiHler thetrapdoor 
in the loft{ when this unfort^inate youth 
slipped through the trap-door into the 
cask, which caused instairt suflfocation. 
He was get out with all possible expedi- 
tion ; but the vital spark had fled, and 
every eudeavour to recover him proved 
iuetfeclnal. About IH months before, the 
deceased broke bis arm at play in the 
same chamber.

Nicholus-btreet, in that town. Mr. Pite 
possessed considerable vocal talents, the 
too frequent exertion of which, fur tbe 
beuelit of his friends, no doubt induced a 
premature dissolution, lie was greatly 
respected, and is much lamented by all 
who kuew him.

Stiniford, mud % few other placet, par- 
ticularly 10 the Choir ot St. FaaPi 
Cathedral, where the carved work 
and ornaniedti over the itaiU, and oo 
the organ caie, forcibly diiplay the 
great merit of the artist. 

The Statue above detcribed ought 
to he reiiiovrd to a tile more worthy 
of it, where it may l>e better Meo, and 
its merits ai an excellent specimen of 
art duly appreciated. 1 know of no 
situation more suitable for it than 
the end of Whitehall, and to be 
placed in the front of the House be- 
tween Parliament and King Streets, 
facing Charing Crosi; it will be out 
of the way of carriages there ; and, to 
make it more conspicuous, should be 
erected on a loftier basement and pe- 
destal than it has at present, bearing 
the original inscription : " Jacobus 
Secundus,Dei Gratia, Anglie.Scolie, 
FranciflB, et Hibernie Rex, Fidei De- 
fensor, Anno 1686,'* now nearly obli- 
terated. It should be surrounded with 
a bold iron railioe, with gas lamps at 
the angles, which, when lighted at 
night, would have a good effect, and 
be of great use in that dark and wide 
crossing from the Government Offices 
on the side of Downing.itreet to the 
opposite end of Parhameot-itreet, 
which in general is not only very 
dirty, but even dangerous to pasien- 
gcrs. 

Yoo will probably be able, in some 
of your future numbers, to favour 
your readers with a description of 
the Monuments erected in the V^ati- 
can Church at the expenie of the 
Prince Regent, in honour of, or to 
perpetuate the memory of the per- 
sonages ^bove-mentioned ; correct co- 
pies of the inscriptions thereon would 
be desirable, that we may learn from 
thence what stile, or title, is given to 
each of them. The Old Pretender 
styled himself ** Jacf>bus III. Mag. 
Brit. Rex ;'* and, when spoken of at 
Rome, was mostly called **ll Re." 
His two sons frequently assumed the 
title of King, Henry the youngest (the 
late Cardinal) in particular, bad me- 
dals struck at Rome, one of which 1 
have seen, bearing the following in- 
scription round his head in profile, 
**Henricus IX. Dei gratia Mag. Brit. 
Rex I** and on the reverse the arms of 
England, as borne by James I. ; but 
in hia letters he generally subscribed 
himself ** Henry Cardioa)/* 7 am aot 
qsitc eertmia wbetber he wu§ aot at 



the time of his death Dean of the 
College of Cardinals : if not, he was 
at least Sub-dean ; at which time his 
titles ran thus, " Serinissimo, Emi- 
nentissimo e Reverendissimo Principe 
II Sig. Cardinale Enrico, Benedetto, 
Maria Cleroento, Ducadi York, Ves- 
covo di Frascati,Commendatoriodella 
Chiesatitolari di S. S. Lorenzo in Da- 
maso, Vice Cancelliere della S. R. C. 
e Sommista, e Arcipreta di S. Pietro 
in Vaticano, sotto Decano dell Sagro 
Collegio." I believe, with his other 
Ecclesiastical preferments, he held an 
Abbey somewhere in French Flanders 
in commendam, to which he was pre- 
sented when very young by Louis XV.

THE Provisional Committee for 
Encouragement of Industry and 
Reduction of Poors' Rates, reflecting 
on the growing dissatisfaction, and 
want of employment in various parts, 
is induced to accelerate the publica- 
tion of the following, which is with 
confidence recommended as a most 
important means of relief. Undersuch 
circumstances,the Cultivation of Land 
may be realized as an universal as 
well as a permanent resource; and 
this might be immediately commenced 
— the Act intituled, " A n Act to amend 
the Laws for the Relief of the Poor," 
and passed in the late Session, em- 
powering each Parish to obtain Land 
lor the purpose of Employment and 
for Letting. It may be remarked, 
that the low wages which would be 
cheerfully accepted, would be reim- 
bursed by the products obtained, while 
the manngement of the spade is uni- 
versally available. The above Act 
(limiting the Land to be taken by 
each Parish to 20 acres) confers, as 
before noticed, a mo-t judicious dis- 
cretionary power, by which Land may 
be let in small portions at a fair rent, 
for the profitable occupation of them- 
selves and families during leisure 
hours, and which cannot fail of pro- 
ducing the most essential effect, by 
.the stimulus thus afforded to the in- 
dustrious Poor to recover an inde- 
pendent state.. Overseers, Guardians 
of the Poor, and Parishes, are there- 
fore earnestly and respectfully invited 
to apply themselves to the above oV 
jecti Noblemeiu MagistraletfandOc- 
cupien of Land, and the CoromiMkii^

learned Dr. S. Butler in his *« SkeUh 
of Modern and Ancient Geography," 
third edition, p. 172 : '* The uni- 
formity of plan and diction con- 
vinces roe that the Iliad, with pos- 
sibly a small exception, is the work 
of one man. The Odyssey I attribute 
to diflferent hands, and to a somewhat 
later, but very early age V* This opi- 
nion, delivered by no sound a scho- 
lar as the editor of the Cambridge 
iEschylus, is calculated to greatly 
increase the already too prevalent 
neglect of a grand and most interest- 
ing poem. Dr. Butler clearly ex- 
cludes the author of the Iliad from 
anv share in the composition of the 
Odyssey, i^hich Longinus (in his 9th 
section) has declared to be perfectly 
worthy ofhioif and to exhibit, even 
in itt weakest parts, only the natural 
decline of his uncommon powers. 
The great critics of antiquity seem 
never to have suspected that any 
poet but the author of the Iliad could 
have writtcni the many noble passages

fAeulty of turpriiMg i on th« contrary, 
bis cunceiu are uftentiniet deeply steep- 
ed ill buiuan fcc]in{r and passion. Above 
all, hit way of idling: a story, for iu 
eager liveJioess, and the perpetual run- 
ning Gommentary of the narrator hap- 
|u1y blended with the narration, is \ier- 
liaps unequaled." 

The next subject, and il appears to 
he a Ycry fav<»tirile one with Mr. L. 
of which he treats, is the jjrnius and 

cbaraijtcr of Ui>garlh.— Tho loo com- j,.,.|, 7„j,r^; imincdialciy adapts f"r 
inon light in which Hogarth is con- Mj„„ti„jr in reference loo much \o 



subjrct of the second plate in the seriec, 
is almost a transcript of Timon's lev««e 
in the openin{>: scene of that play. We 
find a dedicatini; poet, and other simi- 
lar cbaracttrs, in both." 

This E«say is accompanied with 
some juH remarks on a passage in the 
writings of the late Mr. Bar ry, which, 
lhou<;li lie wa^ an inj^enious man, and 
a ^reat painter, relates to his pre- 
vailing^ ((»ible of considering the kub- 



sidercd is that of a mere mimic, a 
painter of low life and huflfoiMierj, 
whose only object is to iirakc ns 
lau;;h. Mr. Lamb aims to show he 
was a raoraJ painter, a philosopher, 
a i>»hakspcare oo caova% 

•*To deny (says Mr. U) that there are, 
tbroaichout cbe prints which I have meii- 
tioned, circumstanres introduced of a 
laughable tendency, would be to run coun- 
ter to the common notions of mankind; 
but to suppose that in their rulinfc cha- 
racter they appeal chiefly to the riiible fa- 
culty, and not first and foremost to the 
very laeart of a soan, its best and most 
serious fecling«, would be to mistake no 
leS4 srosRiy their aim and purpose. A 
Ret of severer Satires (for they are not so 
much Comedies, which they hsive been 
likened to, as they are stroii*;; and mas- 
culine Satires) less minted with any 
tbinfp of mere fun were never written 
upon paper, or graven upon copper. 
They resemble Juvenal, or the Siitiric 
touches in Timon of Athens. 

** I was pleased with ibo reply of a 
gentleman, who, being asked which book 
lie esteemed most in hi> library, an- 
swered — *ShK.ks|)eare;' bein^ asked which 
he esteemed next best, replied — ' Hxy' 
earth.' His graphic repriiNentatioiis are 
indeed bouks: they have the toemiii{C. 
fruitful, suj^gestlvo meaning of words. 
Ofber pictures we look at — his prints 
we read. 

*' In pursuance of this parallel, I have 
sometimes entertained myself with com- 
paring the Timon of Athens of Shaks- 
pcare (which I have jusi mentioned), 
and Hogarth's * Rake's Pnigress* toge- 
ther. The story, the moral, in both ^s 
nearly the same. Tbe wild course of 
riot and extravagance, ending in the 
oiMf with driving the rro<ligal from tbe 
society of men into the solitude of the 
deserts, and in tbe other with conduct- 
ing the Rake through his several stages 
of dissipation into the still more com- 
plete desolations of the mad-hciuse, in 
tlie play, and in \hc pMuiv,^ re f/escn bed 
with MJmoae ctjwti force ami tialnri; 



what is called, often improperly 
enough, cfatstral iaste; as though 
what IS termed hw Iffrt often as im- 
projirrl), doei not make a part of 
the real picture of hninan life, as well 
as what is more fnshionahlc, great, 
and glorioiM ; and as though it 
could not he to rrprcscnled by the 
hand of a master, as to produce the 
eflects, cither striking or pleasing, or 
good and profitable, that we have a 
right to look for in painting. — 

Some of Mr. Lamb's £ssays are 
whimsical enough, and made us laugh. 
Of I his number is that on *' Burial So- 
cieties,^* and the *^ Characler of an 
Undertaker,'* on the** Inconveniences 
resulting from being Hafif^cd;** ••On 
the Melancholy of Tailors;" but our 
liiniiK do not allow us to go further 
into these inatlers. 

We have rend all these works' of 
Charles Lamb with pleasure ourselves, 
though Dot all with equal pleasure. 
With respect to his •* Uemarks on 
Miak«|)eare/' though we do not con- 
sider them in the light of a diKovery, 
vet thev are made with much taste 
and good tense; and those on our 
other dramatic writers are, it is evi- 
dent, made after a Ihorongh acquaint- 
ance with his subject. But it is 
equally trtio of all great dramatic 
works, that if, of all which represent 
human manners and passions on a 
large scale, as well as of Shakspcare, 
that they are better understood by be- 
ing read, than they can be by seeing 
them actMl — by sensihio persons at 
least, who, as they tan only judge 
alter reflection, so are the^ not to be 
taken by fiurprizc, nor fascinated 
by trick and show; or, it is »uly

their long and weary journey over 
the rough and romantic roadi of 

•• Rydal heights and Dunmail-raise, 
Aud all their fellow banks and bmes." 

In the midst of a tremendous mid- 
night storm, Benjamin has an oppor- 
tunity of evincing his humanity to 
a female in distress, the wife of a 
Jame sailor, who is travellin<^ with a 
model of Lord Nelson's ship the 
Vanguard. The Sailor and the Wag- 
goner jog on most cordially till at- 
tracted by the kound of ** a village 
Merrj-night," •• a term well known 
iu the North of England, as applied 
to rural festivals, where young per- 
sons meet in the evening for the pur- 
pose of dancing. Here they join the 
jovial crew { and are templed lo waste 
two hours. 

The Sailor*s narrative of the Battle 
of the Nile is excellent; and the con- 
viviality of the little party at the Inu 
is well described. 

Id the middle of the Poem, the fer- 
tile Muse of Mr. Wordsworth is in- 
duced, by the surrounding scenery, 

" To quit the slow- paced Waggon's kide. 
And wander down you hawlhorn dell, 
Wtih murmuring Gri;ta for hei ^ruide. 
— ^There doth she ken the awful form 
Of Raven- crag — black as a btorin — 
Glimmeiiiig through the twilight, pale ; 
And (;imtner-crag, his lull twin-brotli<'r, 
lladi pceiing forth to meet the other : — 
And, rambling on through St. John's Vale, 
AluiiiT the smooth unpathwayM plain, 
I)y dheep -track or through cottage lane. 
Where no disturbance comes to intrude 
Upon the priiiiir«t solitude, 
Her unsuspecting eye, perchance. 
With the rude Shepherd'b favoured glance. 
Beholds the Fairies iu array, 
Whose party-colour'd garments gay 
The silent company betiay ; 
Red, green, and blue ^ a inoinenl*s sight * 
For Skiddavr-top with rosy light 
U toucU'd — and all Ihu band take flight.'* 

We would gladly accompany the 
Muse*8 flight, to '' the ridge of Nath- 
dale Fell," and *< the ruined towers of 
Threlkeld Hall;'* hut we must pro- 
ceed, with the honest Waggoner, 

" up Castrigg's naked ^teep 

(Where smoothly urged the vapours sweop 
Along— and Kcatter and divide 
Like fleecy clouds self-multiplied) 
The stately Waggon is ascending 
With faithful Benjamin altendinK."

At the conclusion of this Canto, 
after defending the absurdities of Ido-

" The Runic Bard to nobler themes shall 

*tring [sing: 

His aniient harp, and mightier triumphs 
For glorious days are risen on Iceland : — 

clear 
The gospel- trumpet sounds to every ear, 
And deep in many a heart the Spirit's 

voice 
Bids the belief ing soul in hope rejoice. 
O'er the «tern face of this tempestuous isle, 
Though briefly Spring, and Auiumo never, 

smile. 
Truth walks with naked foot th' unyielding 

snows. 
And the glid desert blossoms like the rose. 
Though earthquakes heive, though tor. 

rents drown his cot, [lot 

Volcanoes waste his fitrlds. — the peasant's 
Is blest beyond the destiny of kings :

Like dying Stephen, when he saw in prayer 
Heaf eo open'd, and his Saviour beckoning

Carsier Pigeons. — A letter from Brus- 
sels, dated July 17, says, — *' Thiity-lwo 
pigeons, with the woid Anticcrpy marked 
on their wings, have been sent lo London, 
where they were let loose on the 11th of 
this month, atseveu o'clock in the morn- 
ing, after haviug their wings couuttr- 
markcd London. The same day, toudriI> 
noon, one oT thetie faithful animals ar- 
rived at home, and obtained 4 he first 
prize ; a quarter of an hour later, a tf,- 
cond arrived, aud obtained the next prizi-. 
The followini; day, twelve others arrived, 
makinj^ fourteen in all. Tkt- prize^, which 
are vrry considerable, will be distributed 
t;>-mf)rrow (Sunday) at Anlwrrp. It is 
jiot with any intention of Cbt<tbli»hing a 
conespondcnce between London and Ant- 
werp (as the Paris journals pretend) that 
those pigeons were sent to London, but 
merely for the pleasure of s^'eing them 
return." 

SPAIN. 

The hope of recovering her trans- At- 
lantic possessions seems now lost to Spain. 
The Cadiz expedition, so long in prepara- 
tion, and upiin which the Government 
had bestowed tlie whole remuaut of its re- 
sources, has been dissipated by a mutiny. 
The small proportion of the army which 
continued to respect the orders of the 
Commander-in-chief, claimed an exemp- 
tion from the expedition, as the price of 
their fidelity. 

The estimated expense of the Cadiz 
Expedition, now rendered abortive, is not 
less than 30 millions of dollar? ; more 
than seven millions sterling. The who\e

Bcn were cairM- » mock procMsios be- 
flpre bim. 

John Tyas *, G«o. Swift, John Thocker 
Saxton, Robtrt Wild, Thomas Taylor, 
iMary Waterwonh, Satah Hargreaves, and 
Sf ixa Grant, were aho arrested, and lodg- 
ed in the Xev Bailey priion. 

After tbeae individuaU had been com- 
miited to the cnttody of the Governor, 
ibey were turned into one common yard, 
where the events of the day formed ihe 
snbject of ronveriation. Kntght and 
Morehooee, who had been taken a short 
time after them, were adde<l to their com- 
pany. About five o'clock the Magistratirs 
directed the Governor of the pn»on to 
lock 9Mdtk of them tip in a solitary cell, 
wnd to lee that they had no oommunica> 
tioD with each other. This was accord iog- 
ly done. 

In eaivyiag the above measures into 
•cAict, we are eoncemcd to state, that four 
^raons were killed, and forty-four wound- 
ed, one by a eabre of the Cavalry, and 
•others by the trampling of the horee«. 
•At the nsoinent of surrounding the hnst- 
iags, a shower of brick-bats and paving- 
•tones were buried at the Yeomanry, se- 
veral of whom were itruck ; one (Mr. 
llulme) «o sereiely. that he dropped the 
reins, and his horse fell, by which he was 
.pitched otT. and his skull was fractured. 
Ue waa carried to the Infirmary. 

In the conrse of the aftrrnoon, several 
f>erwms were tak«*ii iuto custody, in nddi- 
lion to tbi'^e t»k«>n «)» iii the field ; and a 
great numbrr of rioters, from viirioiis 
parts of the town, were cvcorled iu the 
evening hy the cavalry to the New Bailey. 
On Wednesday morning eveiy sym])- 
tom of disurdrr had disappeared fro in 
Maneheater, and the town bore the ap- 
pearance of perfect tranquillity. 

On Tiiursday, Hunt and oth''r!t xcixk 
brought up for examination at tiic N<-v7 
Bniiey Cuurt lloime. Hum was pLici-d 
at the bar: he looked boldly round. Mr. 
NorriR addressed bim to tiiiji efTcct : " fliti- 
ry Hunt, the prosecutors are perfectly 
firepan-d to go into f videnre in ynppoii ol* 
the; charges upon which yon w<eri.' appre- 
hended I but other evidence has cumn bo- 
fore the Magistrates of the highest im|>ort- 
aoce; and they have deemed it their duty 
to lay the wliole body of ii btrfoie the Law 
Officers of the Grown, to advise upon it. 
Tbr Magistrates, whose organ I am, have 
therefore unanimously dt-emed it tlieir 
doty to remand you upon a charge of 
Uicn TaRiiBON.'' 



* This gentleman was on ttie hu»tin^s 
merely as a Iteporter, attached to The 
Timet Newspaper; and. on tbiit explana- 
tion being made the next morning, he wa!< 
difii-hargcd by the Magiitrntes^ wjib a po' 
lite apolo^j for the mittakv. 



■ //ma/—" I presume 1 am not allowed to 
sav any thing?" 
The Bench—" Ko." 
Hunf-~** I beg to state one worrl. I am 
perfectly iunoceikt of thechargc, and ready 
to meet it.'* 

Hunt then bowtd to the Ken(:h,and went 
down. 

Joseph Jo/msnn was brought up. He ap- 
peared much it!;itat(M]. 

^9^. Ncrris addressed him in thfi sjui*? 
words RA to rinnt. — J(ihii>t.iii said nolhi'ig, 
but bowed and retirtMl. 

c/"/in Thicker Saxton was bi ought up. 
He bow«d fclrghtly.-^Aftcr Mr. Norris had 
addressed him un he did the others, Sax- 
tun said, "Am I to consider myself com- 
mitted on thut charge V^ — Mr. Norris : 
*' You are detained on that charge ; not 
nnally committed." 

Mm Knight was the nc\*. He said no- 
thing, but wa« addiessed as the others. 

Jamc* Mvorhousc smiled very contempt u- 
OQsly. Alter Mr. Norris had remanded 
him on the charge of High Treason, Mtiui- 
huuse look up his while hat *, which wa<i 
close to him, and naid, " I preKumi^ ii's 
my hat you mean, and not uie. I hui 
ready to meet the charjjc." 

EVnabeth Gaunt, a (all, thin, palo wn- 
miio, about 45 ;' Sarah Htir^reaves, abfiiit 
26, (lre«i<ed in black; Robert Jvncs^ » ra:;- 
dcjiler from Manclieyter, about 2J) ; Ht- 
bi'it h'i/de, jun. about 23, from Siayley 
Hridgi*; and Gt'or^e Swift, lale of Dnnrus- 
ter, were all brtm^ht up separately, and 
adJre!<>ed by Mr. Norris as the others h:i!l 
been, am] then remanded on the s.-iiiii; 
rhaigc as all the others, that of Hir.ti 
TncAsoM. 

W.irran's liave bffn issued agnin>l 
FJp.ily niid narnstii also, on a charge of 
Hi«:h Treason ; and it is believed thatsoni** 
ijf their H-socr Kites now in the Metrc^polis 
are implicated in the same weighty aceii- 
sjtion. 

We have to rrgrct tli;il at 3Iinrff\/ul'.'t 
Slockport, and Coventry , some elTitrt-* a» 
disUirbiiucc have been hazarded by lie*

OBITUARY. 



Dr. John Poktir, Bishop of Ci.ocher. 

This emineot Prelate (who died July 

i27,) was formerly Fellow, and somelime 

Tutor of Trioiiy College, Cambridge; 

where be took the degrees of A. B. 1773 ; 

A. M. 1T76 ; S. T. P. per Lit. Reg. 1792. 

Hariog been nominaied one of the 
Chaplains to Earl Camden, when that 
Nobleman repaired to Ireland as Viceroy, 
he was speedily nominated to a Bishop- 
rick. Accordingly, on the translation of 
Dr. Law from Killaloe to the See of EU 
pbin, in 1795, he was nominated succes- 
sor to that Prelats ; and in the course of 
the Booceeding year was himself trans- 
lated to Clofhcr. 

The Bishop died intestate ; he has left 
property to the amount of 240,000/. 



Dr. Jambs Playfair. 

James Playfair, D. D. F. R. S. F. A. S. 
Edinb. (whose death we announced in 
our last Supplement, p. 655,) was bom 
in the parish of Bendochie, in the county 
of Angus, about the year 1740. After 
the common course of education he went 
to St. Andrew's, where he studied with 
great diligence, and was licensed as a 
Preacher by the Presbytery of Meigle* 
He was neat presented to the living of 
New Tile by Mr. Stewart Mackenzie, af- 
ter which he obtaine<l that of Meigle, near 
the seat of the same gentleman. This na- 
turally introduced him to the patronage of 
the family of Bute, which led to his ap- 
poiotment as Principal of the United CuU 
lege of St. Salvador and St. Leonard, in 
the University of St. Andrew's. He was the 
author of a laborious and valuable Sys- 
tem of Chronology, comprised in eight 
parts, fol. 17S4. 

He was the ftther of Dr. John Playfair, 
the lamented Professor of Mathematics 
at Edinburgh ; whose death we announced 
in our last, p. 87. — In " Peter's Letters 
to his Kinsfolk," recently published, we find 
the following notice, of Mr. Professor Play- 
fair. 

** Mr. P. was the only other person 
whose conversation made any very strik- 
ing impression on me — but, indeed, this 
might well be the case, without the least 
reflection on the talents of those present. 
This gentleman's mode of talking is just 
as differeni as possible from his friend's 
(Professor Leslie) ; it is quietly, simply, 
nnaffectedly sensible, and that is all one 
thinks of it at first-— but by degrees he 
aays things, which, although at the mo- 
ment he nttert them they do not produce 
any werj %Ur^iiag- effect, they hmre the 
power to keep oae mueing on them for m 
Jbag iuae eJier he Mtops,- so thst erea if 



one were not told who he is, I believe oae 
would have no difficulty in discovering 
him to be a great man. The gravity of 
his years— the sweet unassuming gentle- 
ness of his behaviour—and the calm way 
in which he gives utterance to thoughts, 
about which almost any other person 
would have made so much buitle— every 
thing about the appearance and manners 
of this serene and venerable old man, has 
left a feeling of quiet, respectful, and affec- 
tionate admiration upon my mind." 

James Forbes, Esq. F. R. 8. 

jiug, 1. At Aix-la-Chapelle, James 
Forbes, esq. of Stanmore, Middlesex, and 
of Albermarle. street. Fellow of the Royal * 
and Antiquarian Societies, and Member of 
the Arcadian Society at Rome. 

He was a lineal detcendant of the Earls 
of Granard, and was bom in London in 
1749. Having obtained an appointment 
as a Writer to Bombay, he left England 
before he had attained his 16th year; and 
with a little knowledge of drawing, and an 
ardent desire to explore foreign countries, 
he travelled near 20 years in different 
parts of Asia, Africa, and America, en- 
deavouring to investigate the manners and 
customs of the iohabitanti, to study the 
natural history, and delineate the prin* 
cipal places and, picturesque scenes in 
the various regions he visited. To these 
he added the costume of the natives ; and 
coloured drawings of the birds, fish, in- 
sects, fruits, flowers, and vegetables, 
found in such an infinite variety in those 
distant climes. Duiiug that period he 
resided four years among the Brahmins, 
in Hindostan, at a distance from the 
Europeau settlements, where he had an 
excellent opportunity of observing the 
lives and tenets of that singular tribe. 
Uis drawings and accompanying descrip- 
tions, during these travels, fill 130 folio 
volumes, containing upwards of 3'2,000 
pages, the work of his own hand. 

After having filled early in life several 
honourable and im)>ortani stations in dif- 
ferent parts of India, he returned in 1784« 
to enjoy the sweets of domestic life and 
retirement at his mansion at Staomere-hill. 
He married in 17S8, Rosee Gay lard, 
daughter of Joseph Gay lard, esq. of Stan- 
more, by whom he has issue one daugh- 
ter, married in 1S09 to the Comte de Mon- 
talembert, Minister from France to Wir- 
temberg. — His hours of leisure were past 
in vast literary labours— social affection, 
and genuine hospitality, in the bosom ol 
a family and numerous circle of Crknis^

its various dutiet, poblio and private. la 
the line of his profession, whether as Ca- 
rate or Rector, ho was exemplary in bis 
attention to the spiritual, and even tem- 
poral concerns of the flock under his 
charge. Scrupulously punctual and zea- 
lous on the Sabbath, he was equally the 
▼igilaot pastor through the week, watch* 
ful over the moral conduct of those around 
him, and erer prompt toadmiuister theton- 
solatioos of Religion, as well as pecuniary 
ajststaoce, to the afflicted. His admoni- 
tioos were not confioed to the pulpit, but, 
where occasions warranted, were given iu 
private. In two instances (kuown to the 
writer of this) the parties took great of- 
fence at what they considered the officious 
and un-official interference of their par- 
ton; but both have since gratefully ac- 
knowledged the delicacy and kiodness of 
the expostulations, ^nd expressed their 
lasting obligations to their beUfiiend, This 
may afford a useful hint to the younger 
Clergy, as to the propriety of their at- 
tending to this most difficult part of their 
professional duty, the delicacy required 
in the performance of it, and the proba- 
bility of a good effect eventually resulting 
from it^ It deserves mention, that, as Cu- 
rate, he was attentive to the repair of the 
buildings in his occupation, liberally de- 
fraying from his own funds, as soon as 
be had the ability, expenses which might 
with strict propriety have been expected 
from his Rector. To account for this, 
it IS necessary to observe, that from ill 
health he was unable to reside at Chad- 
well, and that, after an experiment of 
1 8 months, which endangered his life, he 
had resided as Curate at Cranham, South- 
weald, logate^tone, and Chipping Ongar, 
all in Essex. Still greater liberality was 
ahewn in regard to the Manse and Church 
of Borley, of which he died resident in- 
cumbent, and in which, not being patron, 
he had only a life* interest. It is equally 
creditable to both parties, that during his 
residence at Chipping Ougar, Bp. Porteus 
tendered him the Living of a very popu- 
lous parish near the metropolis, with the 
flattering intimation, that he owed the ten- 
der to the Bishop's earnest wish to collect 
around him some of the best parish priests 
he could find in his diocese. So high a 
compliment from so discriminating a pa- 
tron must have been highly gratifying. 
For various reasons the offer was declined, 
and soon afterwards the Bishop presented 
bim with the Prebend of Mara. The cer- 
tain annual value of the Prebend was very 
trifling. The lease of the prebendal estate 
wa» wearing out. On the renewal a con- 
siderable fine was paid: but the annual 
value has been materially increased to 
tticoecding prebendaries. How far he 
was a free Mfreat la ibe Brrangement, f 
mm aot abh to ttate: but Ibe presumption 



is, that in proportion as the reserved an- 
nual payment was increased on the re- 
newal, the amount of the fine miist have 
been diminished. In justice to the pa- 
rishioners of Chipping Ongar, as well as 
to the subject of this Memoir, it should be 
told, that, on his quitting them and re- 
moving to Borley, after a residence of 14 
years, they presented him with a hand- 
some piece of plate, with an inscription, 
bearing honourable testimony to the ex- 
cellence of his professional and private 
character. And it may be added, that, 
since his death, the parish of Chadwell 
have transmitted to his family a letter 
expressive of their gratitude for bis at- 
tentive concern to his clerical duties (for 
though he could not reside with them, he 
seldom failed in his monthly attendance), 
and for the friendly intercourse, which for 
more than 36 years had subsisted between 
them without interruption. In his office 
of Justice of the Peace, he was exten- 
sively useful to the town and neighbour- 
hood of Chipping Qngar, punctual in his 
attendance at the weekly Bench, and ac- 
cessible at all times at his own house. 
By his firmness, tempered with concili- 
ating moderation, he well deserved and 
fully gained the respect and esteem of 
conflicting parties. In this character his 
loss has been severely felt. 

Among his other public functions may 
be classed that of Treasurer of the Essex 
Charity for the relief of Poor Clergymeu 
and their widows and children. To his 
unremitting and zealous attention to this 
interesting Institution the whole body of 
the surrounding Clergy bear ample and 
willing testimony. 

Upon authority that cannot be ques- 
tioned, it may be asserted, that he was 
equally exemplary in the discharge of the 
duties of private life. As a husband and 
father, ever solicitous for the present com- 
fort and permanent welfare of his nearest 
and dearest connections ; as the master of 
a family, watchful over the moral con- 
duct of his dependants, and riady to pro- 
mote their best interests. 

it is no slight proof of the high estima- 
tion in which he was generally held, that, 
for the greater part of his life, he wa« en- 
gaged in executorships, frequently called 
upon as mediator in family and other dif- 
ferences, and as umpire in cases of dii;- 
puted dilapidations. 

Such, and thus various, have been the en- 
gagements, the conduct, and the merits of 
my departed friend. The governing prin- 
ciple of his life appears to have been a steady 
determination to perform to the best of 
his power every duty attached to bis par- 
ticular profession and situation. XudU 
was bis peculiar merit, to turn lo ^tooA 
account every talent commiUcd to V\\* 
charge. No opportunity of being uM^a\

(2.) In the year of Rome 547 (808 
before the birth of Christ) the sacred 
lire in the temple of Vesta having be- 
come extinct through the inattention 
of the virgin who had the charge of 
watching it, the high priest ordered 
her to be scourged for her neglect 

(3.) On another occasion, a priest's 
bonnet having fallen from his head 
during the performance of sacrifice^ 
that accident deprived him of his 
priesthood. 

(4.) The statue of Jupiter, in his 
temple at Syracuse, being decorated 
with a gold mantle, the tyrant Dio- 
nysius the elder stripped it off, and 
substituted a woollen cloak in its 
stead, observing that the former wat 
too heavy for summer, and too cold 
for winter I whereas the'lalter was fil 
fur either season. 

(5.) That same Dionysios took ofT 
the golden beard from the statue of 
^iculapius, saying it was quite ont 
of character that he should be seen lo 
wear a beard, while his father, Apollo, 
was every-where represented beard* 
less. 

(6.) He also took away various 
;;olden images, crowns, and other 
articles, placed on the outstretched 
hands of the statues of gods and 
goddesses, alleging that he commit- 
ted no robbery or sacrilege, bot 
simply received them as gifts; and 
that it were foolish to pray to the 
gods fur good things, and not to ac- 
cept them, when fairly oftered. 

(7.) Dionysius again !•— Returning 
by sea from Locri, where he had 
plundered the temple of Proserpine, 
and sailing with a favourable wind, 
" Do you see, my friends'* '^id be, 
'■ what a prosperous voyage the godi 
grant to sacrilegious folk ?" 

(8.) In the year of Rome 57?, 
near five centuries after the death of 
Numa Pompilius, two stone chesta 
were discovered, in digging, in the 
vicinity of the city. One of these (as 
appeared from a graven inscription) 
had been the receptacle of that

from that inconstancy which forms

laid down foine Terj ezcelleot rules to 
be obicrved io a new Translalion of 
the Bible, and ha» now and then ex- 
cmplitied them bj faulty inttancei in 
Bp. Lowlh and niyielfi and, generally 
•peaking, t mint confers, not i»ttliout 
reaKin. nut perhaps in his own Trnns- 
lalion vou will o«iw and then observe 
that I lie good Bishop hai all'orded 
proof how much easier it is to point 
out faults than to a? oid them. \ ou 
do me too much houour ni wishing 
.that 1 would undertake fizckicl. Bp. 
Ncwcorae had engaged a very able 
nMn ill Ireland* Dr. Forn}th, in that 
"very difficult work ; but death has 
prevented him, and 1 htne not heard 
whether he had made any or what 
progress in it. As for me, supposing 
1 had abilities for the task, which is 
yresy questionable, I fear 1 have nei- 
ther health nor opportunity now to 
go through with it. When I entered 
upon Jeremiah, 1 was a resident at 
Oxford, and bad tree miercoiirsc with 
both the living and dejd. I am now 
confined to a country paridh, with a 
few books only of my onn collecti(»n, 
at a distance from any wcll-»tocked 

Library, and not a soul in the neigh- 
bourhood that ever seems to have 

thoaght of the^e mattcrn. Oh, bow 

conld 1 relish such a neighbour as 

yourself, and what use couid 1 find «ii' 

yourfriendl) co-operations! Biittiicre 

is, I must confess, another thing to 

deter me from attempting any f:irtlier 

publications. 1 wa« never desire n< of 

gain ; and thepuhlick was freely wel- 
come to the fruits of my iip|ilicutiou. 

But a man with a family Ciinnut ull'^rd 

to sacrifice over and ubo>e a part of 

that provision which he is bound to 

make f(»r them. I shall lose above 

too/, by my Jeremiah, &o few are 

there to purchase ev<n where they 

ailect to applaud. You too, I fear 

hy what you say in your Letter, with 

^Kfaler merits have not met with ade- 

«|.*jale encouragement. I mean, there- 
tore, a« 1 eaniiot help amusing myself 

with auch sort of litudies, to lay hy 

sueh ob»ervatioiis a« appear to me, 

and in case of my dcith tti leave them 

io proper baud«, to he produeed when- 
ever the new Translation of the Bible 

is taken in hand. Many of my re- 
marks may perhapn appear tritling, 

but there will then he those that will

bnt will at least reserve them foriome 
such season. The Bp. of Norwich *• 
you tell me, is averse to a New Trans- 
iation. 1 am sorry lor it, but 1 can 
easily believe it. He is a man of pro- 
bity and virtue, and possessed of con- 
siderable learning I but he is a Bigot 
(I mean not to play upon words) to 
uld establishments. Had all men been 
of his mind, we had still been in the 
darkoessof i'opery. 1 rememl>er,when 
he was at Oxford, how violently he 
opposed, on the principle of no inno- 
vations, a propoikal for taking away 
the necessity ol subscribing lu theS9 
Articles from those who could not 
possibly know the meaning of them; 
1 mean from boys at their matricula- 
tion. And unhappily his prejudices 
not his arguments, prevailed with the 
majority. But Reformat ion, as 1 lake 
it, is not to beconsidcred as 1 nno vation. 
'^1 fear 1 shall tire you with my long 
Letter. But 1 cannot conclude with- 
out assuring you that 1 shall think 
myself happy in being favoured with 
your future correspondence ; and 
should your occasions call >ou this 
way, i should hope \nu would call iu 
at i'oulshot, as 1 certainly should not 
approach Hardingham without pay- 
ing my respects to you. Congenial 
studies must naturally recommend i«« 
to each other. 1 thank you for ail 
ycmr good wishes and professions of 
regard for me» and I feel myself ini- 
pressed t(»wards you with the snn.e 
sentiments of cordial esteem and re- 
spect when I subscribe myself,

" Asa, tbut admoBwbedy avowed tbe 
necessity of religioiif reformation, and se- 
dulously «ppliefl himself to effect it. He 
began by breaking dovo ' tbe imaget and 
cutting do«n Ibe groves' of the Pagan 
idols, whosa wofthip bad soperseded that 
of the true God. Th6 people * sware 
uotu the Lord with a loud voice, and with 
shouting, and with trumpets, and with 
cornets*.' He issued edicts to compel 
them to seek tbe God of their fathers, aud 
ereo threatened death to those, *<whelher 
small or great, whether man or woman, 
who would not seek the I/)rd God of 
Israel f .' But Ata struck not at the root 
of the evil. Enthusiasm is an unsteady 
guide ; and our best feeling^ at all times, 
require to be supported by the steady 
arm of fixed principle. The zeal of Asa 
slackened when the duties of religion ap^ 
peartd to be iocoosistent with his inte- 
rests > and the one was eventually sacri- 
ficed to the other. Ue had prorcsscd to 
abide by the law of God, and his people 
had sworn to be obedient to it : but they 
were not sufficiently instructed in what 
their duty consisted, and, consequently, 
were both equally incapable of perform- 
ing it. 

" His successor, Jehoshaphat, profiting 
by the eaperieoce of his father, pursued 
the measure of reform by the only rule 
which could render it effectual. Not con- 
tent with destroying the vestiges of Pa- 
ganism, he exposed the folly as well as 
wickedness of idolatry. Not satisficjl with 
awakening the zeal of the people, he la- 
boured to give it a legitimate direction. 
He called upon them, as Asa indeed had 
done, * to seek the Lord God of their fa* 
thtrs,' and ' to do the law and the com- 
mandments ;* but he did not, like Asa, 
leave iliem to themselves to collect their 
duty from doubtful or obscure sources. 
He provided the only means through which 
they could properly learn the greatness 
and goodness of God, and fe«l permanent 
motives to -«or:»liip and obedience. « He 
Nfnl Levitfi, aud wiih tlwin priests,* that 
(Jiry mifrht * teacli* throughout the kiiig^- 
dom. ile made them * take the book of 
the law of the Lord wi;h ihem, ami they 
went about through all the cities of Judah, 
and taught the people.* The event was 
soch as the prophet had foretold. * The 
fear of the Lord fell upon all the kingdoms 
of the lands that were round about Judah, 
so that they made no war upon Jehoslio- 
pbat X" The Lord stabli«hcd the kin«;;d(>m 
in his land ; and he had riches and ho- 
nour in abandauoe \J* 

** It may be safely affirmed, that few 
ranses have contributed mure fatally to 
disturb the peace of the Christian ('hiircl), 



since the time of the Refofmation, than a 
mistaken apprehension of the plainness 
and simplicity of the Christian Scriptures ; 
for their plainness and simplicity, in a 
certain degree, being granted, it is thence 
illogically inferred, that they are perfectly 
intelligible, and that too in all doctrinal 
points, to the humblest and most limited 
capacity. But if the authority of those 
very Scriptures were nut directly against 
this inference, the fallacy of it might be 
demonstrated from the various opposed 
and contradictory interpretations of them 
which have been obtruded on tbe world, 
from the first promulgation of the Gospel 
down to the present hour. If the Scrip- 
tures are so very intelligible, how could 
this diversity have arisen ; if so plam, 
how happens it that so many have mis- 
understood them ? Of all these inter- 
pretations all caunot be equally true : 
error, therefore, must prevail iu sonu:, and 
that, of course, in the majority. It is 
true that the doctrines and duties of our 
holy Religion are plain and obvious, when 
carefully gathered from a comparison of 
Scripture with itself; but it m not true 
that this process cen be effectually car- 
ried on without much patient labour, 
much painful study, and lun]«: di<pas- 
siooate meditatiou. together with such a 
knowledge of the different parts of Holy 
Writ as may enable men to comprehend 
the great and ultimate purpose of the Al- 
mighty, in TUB wHOLi of His revealed 
Will." 

<* The difficulties which Christianity has 
to encounter, in the present day, are not 
confined to the iulerpr elation of the Scrip- 
tures in their more obvious con>truction.

and while this if doing, he is up at six 
o'clock in a moniiDf ; dresied in a nan- 
keeo jacket, cap and trowten, if the wea- 
ther be mild ; a hat and woollen jacket 
and trowsersy if it be ooid or wet; shoea 
studded with more than ploughman's nails; 
and taking half a dozen men wiih him, ha 
is not only superintendent of the work, 
but chief labourer. His exercise is so 
violent, that it frc<)nently obliges him to 
throw off his jacket, and work in his sliirt. 
Ko weather interrupts his labour bui snow. 
tie has a fire in hii dressing-room, winter 
and summery and his relet, who has a 
much easier place than his maiitcr, has 
iltrays a set of clothes hanging round it, 
ready for him, when he comes in. We 
diue alone, and he commonly dresses be« 
fore dinner ; but if the work be of very 
great importance, the only ceremony he 
observes is washing his hands ; and after 
be has allowed himself the workmen's 
hour, be toils again till six or seven 
o'clock. H« is generally so foitunate^ 
before \\if job is finished, as to find ano- 
ther that miut be done : if not, the interval 
is insupportable, aod tberefure it is never 
lonir." 

The bufiness of the tender passion, 
which of coune forms the pith of 
Ibis, as of most other noTcIs, is con- 
ducted with admirable feeling and 
delicaCT. It is a perfect and unezag- 
g^eratea model of^a eenuine English 
courtsbtp, chequered by many uo- 
toward aud distressing Ticissitudes and 
disappoiotmentSp which, render the 
final consummation tiie more delight- 
ful. We can only refer to I hi« de- 
partment of the work, at its cfltect 
Would be lost by separation. Of the 
topographic descriptions, interspersed 
in the correspondence, the following 
tnay be taken as a specimen ; it oc- 
curs in a Letter from Miss Oakwoud, 
dated EippoUt and relates to one of 
the most remarkable antiquities in 
the county of York. Her slricturea 
on the rage which formerly prevailed 
for improving ruino, will be applaud- 
ed bjr all whose taste for the pic- 
toresque is blended with a veneration 
for the antique. 

" This morning we visited Fountains 
Abbey, which stands in Studley Park, 
about three miles from hence. I stood 
motionless with aitonishment, when, at 
the end of a narrow grassy gleu, with high 
rocks and woods on each »ide, the East 
end of the Abbey Church burnt mion us ; 
and« through iis lofiy pointed window, we 
saw a nave 351 feet in length, where 
broken arches and spreading trees were

striving fox the mastery. This space has 
been divided in length into church and 
choir; in breadth, into middle and side 
aisles. Magnificent pillars itUI remain. 

" I have nrver seen any place which 
gave me so perfect an idea of the manner 
of living of Monks, as Fountains Abbey, 
where one may trace them through the 
da)'. The splendid ruin I have been de- 
scribing, was ihe place where they trans- 
acted the buFinefs of their lives. I had 
almust tiflid their workishop ; for prayers 
an<! praises so oftrn repealed mu*t have 
become tncciianioal. — We ntxt see their 
ref.ctory, 130 fret by 47. Another se- 
rious business w;i9 transacted here. I 
could fancy tiie long tables, the heavy 
benc'.ies, the ea^er Monks, and the excel- 
lent fare supplied by this luxuriant coun- 
try, Hert: I could not doubl the zeal of 
the good fathers ; for habil coolJ not n*n- 
dcr them indifitTL'nt lo thi^ employ. We 
then come to a venernl»!e cloisrer ; the 
scene of ihrir walks, or ra'.her louns:es \ 
for such pioii<« men had always leisure.-— 
From this, we mounted by a flight of 
fttcps, on the outbide, to their dormitory, 
which is over the cloiHtor. I had not so 
good an opinion of th'-ir lodj^iug as thpir 
living. I'here arc nhout leu small re- 
cefso on ei'hcr side the room, with each 
a dismal window^ they wore prob:ibly 
wainsC'-'t^jd out from the pui:frry, which 
runs in the middle. A largf^r i;r|uare room 
occupies one end. Last scene of this twi 
eventful hiitor}', behold their tomb<i! at 
least, ihose of their abbots. Th*.»y lie bu- 
ried in the chapt'.'r- house, which \% scat- 
tered vith broken tiles, formerly the pave- 
ment; and broken gUss whicli lillt'd the 
window. 

** The kitchen, which is 4" ftet hy CI, 
remains eniirc, wiih its arched ribbcil 
rojf, aiid two capacious firepU-.v, Tii? 
very ihimncy of one is whole, square at 
thr- bastf, and ciicul.tr at top; and the 
mdl s'i!l grinds com, which »up| lied the 
bread. I l(»oked for the buttery, where 
Henry Jenkins shared the hospitality of 
the Monks ; but could not find it.

GarsTAL Mixi ix Fsakci. 
Some time ago, it was announced that 
• crystal mine had been discorered io 
France, near Vie, in Lorraine. The exa* 
■linaiioo, in consequence of some onex- 
peaed indications, which led to the dis- 
eovery of this Mioa (the only one of the 
■kind ever known ia France), has been 
Bade by a Compaay, with a licence for 
the purpose, obtained from the General 
Director of Mines. Nerer was experi- 
mmt attended with more fortunate cir- 
cnmstances. The soil of this mine is as 
white as alabaster; its crystals are purer 
and more brilliant than the specimens 
which haTc been procured from the mines 
of Poland and Aostria. Its quality is 
perfect; and every thing indicates that 
its mass is enormoos. The Director-Ge- 
waral of Mines having been informed, by 
the authors of this search, that the borer 
bad already penetrated ten feet into the 
pure crystal, has given orders to the En- 
gineer of the Department of the Meurthe 
to repair to the spot, to draw up an au- 
thentic account of this important disco- 
▼cry, and of such facts as may relate to iu 

SOTAL ACAMMY OP SCIENCES AMD BbLLSS 

Xjettrks OF Brussels. 

The Academy have proposed for com- 
petition during the year 1820, the five 
following questions io the department of 
Science : 

First fictfi/ion.-— Suppose a plate of a 
given figure attached to a surface eiiher 
by means of screws of a known number, 
position, and force, or by means of some 
intermediate matter capable of uniting 
the one to the other solidly, and tjae spe- 
cific tenacity of which is also known ; if 
to a point of the circumference of this 
plate an arm be afiixed which acts in the 
■ane plane with the surface, it is required 
to know what resistance this plate wU) be 
vmp»b)e ofmmkiag agminst m force applied 
to thia arm at a lercr, conaideriag the ina^ 
tersai, as well of tlte plate as of the arm 



and surface^ as a perfect mathematical 
abstraction ; that is to say, as perfectly 
rigid or non^elastic, as infrangible or in- 
capable of breaking, dec. } 

Second Question. — A body being sus- 
pended from the extremity of a cord, the 
other eitremity of which is fixed to the 
roof of a room ; if this body is made to 
describe an arc of a certain circle round 
the fixed extremity; and if, besides a 
movement of projection is given to it,-— 
it is required to know the nature of the 
curve, or rather double cuivature, which 
this body will describe, according to the 
hypothesis As is the resistance of the air, 
so the Fquare of velocity ? 

Third fiver /ion.— If there is an identity 
between the forces which produce the 
electrical phsnomena, and those which 
produce the galvanic phsenomena,— 
whence is it that we do not find a per- 
fect accordance between the former and 
the latter ? 

FxMrlk fiaeif ion. -« Many modem au- 
thors believe in the identity of the che. 
mical and galvanic forces ; — it is required 
Io prove the truth or falsity of this opi- 
nion \ 

Fifth Sicerlion.— What is the true che- 
mical compoiiiion of sulphurets, as well 
oxidized as hydrogen ized, made according 
to the different processes ; and what are 
their uses in the Arts ? 

The answer must be supported as far 
aa possible with new facts, and •experi- 
ments easy of repetition. 

Discovery op the Cause or Gravitatiow. 
Mr. John Herapath of Bristol has lately 
completed the solution of the celebrated 
Problem respecting the cause of Gra- 
vitation, in which he has been engaged 
at different times for iteversl years, fiis 
, researches for the solotioD of this Pro- 
blem (which was some years ago the ob- 
ject of ardent inquiry by the Royal So- 
ciety and the coutinental mathematicians) 
show that gravitation is only a particular 
case of a general principle, which com- 
prehends all the great phsnomena of Na- 
ture, it is remarkable that this deduc- 
tion exactly coincides with the opinion of 
some of the greatest philosuphers of mo- 
dern times; and, in particular, with that 
of the late Profetisor Playt'air, in his "Out- 
lines of Natural I'hiiosuphy.*' In the ge- 
neral theorem which Mr. H. has brought 
out to express the law of gravitation, it is 
found that the intensity of the attractive 
force between two ultimate atoms, varies 
inversely as the square of the distance 
affected by a term, which has no influ- 
ence unless when the a^>ms are very 
nearly in conUct. I'his theorem, there- 
fore, not only includes the general law o( 
gra\'iUt\on, but likewise those o« coW- 
fion, affinity, &c. from the av\»\ic!vvVoti «>l 
^Uich to chemical philosophy we may i«-a« 
*ouMy expect some iiiivHiriAm «\toc\>vi.i \c .

INTELLIGENCE FROM VARIOUS 
PARTS OP THE COUN T^IY. 

Sept. S. The basineit of Lancaster As- 
sizes comoMoced. The Court was crowd- 
ed to excf sf ; and the object of curiosity 
was* the appearance of Mr. Henry Huot, 
accompanied by Messrs. Harmer and 
-f^earson, the «olicitors. — On the names of 
the Grand Jury being called over, and be- 
fore the Judge's charge, Mr. Hunt ad- 
dressed Baron Wood, and represented that 
he intended lo prefer indictments for mur- 
kier, maiming, cntting. and stabbing, 
•gainst certain Magistrates and other per- 
sons who were relatives of some of the 
-OrAitd iary ; he ijutanced Mr. B. Wilbra- 
liam as in this predicament; and he th<»re- 
fore protested against such gentlemen act> 
4og as Grand Jnrors when these indict- 
ments were preferred^ — Baron Wood sug. 
gested that Mr. Wilbraham could retire 
whco these bills were inquired into ; and 
Mr. Wilbraham stated to the Court that 
he had already informed Lord Stanley, 
the foreman, that be should take no part 
in inquiries connected with these transac- 
tions. The oi^ual proclamation being then 
read. Baron Wood shortly charged the 
Jary. The calendar contains 76 prisoners ; 
among whom is John Adamson, indicted 
for sedition at Burnley; and Robert Jones, 
aged 32, Joseph Healey, 38, George Swift, 
30, John Thacker Saxton, 43, Samuel 
Baoifbrd, 31, and Robert Wild, 22, com- 
mitted, ** for that they, being persons of a 
wicked and turbulent disposition, did, at 
Manchester, in the said country, on the 
14th of Aug. inst. combine, conspire, con- 
federate, and agree together, to excite tu- 
muli and insurrection within this realm, 
and by force and violence to alter the go- 
vernment and conslitulion thereof as by 
law established.*' — Mr. Hunt and those 
who have been bailed, are of course not 
entered among the prisoners in the calendar. 

Sept, 3. Kills were sent before the 
Grand Jury against the following persun»', 
io reference to the late dibturbances at 
Manchester: — Mr. Kdward Tebbuit, Mr. 
'J*hos. Pialt, and Mr. Robert Dtrby^hire, 
members of the Manchester corps of Yeo- 
manry Cavalry, for malicious cutting and 
stabbing, under Lord Ellenburough's Act; 
and against Mr. Richard Owen, a pawn- 
broker, of Manchester, for pcijury, com- 
mitted by him in some dcpot-itiuns suoin 
by him before the Mag'i>trateii; upon 
which iliey were supposed to have acted 
in the late di.<>per>ion of the Keform 
meeting at that pUcc, by military force. 
In the evening the (irand Jury relumed a 
true bill against Mr. K. Otven. 'i'he bills 
dgainst the Yeomanry Cavalry have all 
bt.i-n tb/oira out* 



Sept. 6. This evaniog, being the 50tb 
year from Garrick's Jubilee, a lecture 
(from the pen of H. Neele, esq.) upon the 
peculiar and characteristic merits of Shak- 
speire. was read at the Town Hall, in 
Stratford, by John Brilton, esq. F. A. S. 
whose iir(.liiteciural taste and skill are so 
well kuowii. While the enthusiasm of Mr. 
Brition iu the catise of Shakspeare, and 
his exertions to keep alive the memory of 
the ** Bard of Avon'* in his native town, do 
honour to his head ; hi» benevolence, in 
approj.riating the whole protits of hi* lec- 
ture* to a charitable institution in Stratford, 
is equally creditable to his heart. 

Sept. 10. This evening the town of 
Warwick was illuminated la honour of His 
Royal Highne«s the Piince Regent's vihit 
to the Ca^lle , and on' the next evening, 
Warwick was again more splendidly illu- 
minated than on 4he preceding night. The 
Warwick Arms Hotel, the Swan, the Wool- 
pack, and the Giolie, displayed allegorical 
and emblematic devices on the occasion. 
Many of the distinguished visitors, and 
most of the principal inhabitants, paraded 
the streets to a late hour, and brilliant 
fire- works were displayed in all the open 
spaces. The principal inhabitants, land- 
owners, and visitors of Lf:-am:ngton, wcr« 
convened to a public meeting by the Mas- 
ter of the Ceremonies, at the Koyal Pump- 
room, aud an appropriate address was 
unanimously drawn up and agreed to, ex- 
pressive of their thanks for the Prince 
Regent's paying them a visit. — A depu- 
tation was appointed to wait on his Royal 
Highness at the Castle to present lUc 
address. 

Sept 11. An Address has been pre- 
sented from the ciiy of Oxford, thanking 
the Prince Regent for the measures tait^ij 
lo prevent the evil consequences which 
might have arisen from tumulluons an J 
uulavtful assemblies of the peopli- i and 
alio (or tlie prusecutiuii and pur.i^lmieut 
of the puh'.isaeri and venders of profane

The requisition heing then read. Alder-

great length ; and, carefully aroiding ex- 
iranvou* topict, be discussed the quention 
■a alt its various beshuf^s ; urging the 
neceksity of calling for a full inquiry into 
the atrocities cominiited. which he roa- 
sidered uot only unequalled in our his- 
tory, but a jrreat public outrage coni- 
mittedon theCoostitqtiun.-<^He concluiled 
by moving a neries of Resolutions, which 
were seconded by Mr. Huruombe; but 
irere 0(>pt>sed by Alderman Rolhw»ll, Mr. 
Browne, Mr. Jack". Mr. S. Dixon. Mr. 
James, and Sir Wm. Curtis; chieOy o:i 
the grounds of its being uiijuiit and pie- 
mature to pass a censure on men so highly 
««t|iectable as the Manchester Magis- 
'.tratcs, when the whole of the case did n"t 
appear; when the chaiges against thfin 
rested on imperfect new- paper accounis ;

clos**d by a crowd of pedestrians, extead-

The crowd; through which Hunt passed, 
aud those by wh.tin he w.is accompanied, 
were not less than 200*, UGO. — As soon as 
Mr. Hunt had gwt out of his carriage, he 
addressed the asbembli:d muliiiude. After 
Ihankinj; thoin for the high and distin- 
guishrd honoiir which they had this day 
conf'rrcd on him j he declared he should 
at all times be r'^ady to sacrifice hi^ Ute, if 
required to do «o. in defence o} his prin- 
ciple!! and tUcir liberty ; he then advised 
them, us they val'ttJ ihe cans** for which 
they were contending, to dii>pei>e quietly, 
and not by any ebullition of feeling to give 
their cnemiuit auv advantage over them. 
This speech w.t& i<:r>ived with repeated

and fljroipatbUe with the gaiety and jovi- 
ality of oihert, his own ipiriu were in 
general rather cheeifal than gay» or at 
least never rose to any turbulence or tu- 
mult cf merriment; and while he would 
liiten with the kindest indulgence to the 
more extravagant tallica of his younger 
friends, and prouipt ihem by the heartiest 
approbation, bis own satisfaction might 
generally be traced in a slow and temper- 
ate smile, gradually mantling over his 
benevolent snd intelligent feature*, and 
ligbtiDg up the countenance of the sage 
with the expression of the mildest and 
most genuine philanthropy. It was won- 
derful, hideed, considering the measure of 
his own intellect, and the rigid and unde. 
Tiating propriety of his own conduct, how 
tolerant he was of the deftcts and errors 
of other men. He was too indulgent, in 
truth, and favourable to his friends, and 
made a kind and liberal allowance for the 
faults of all mankind, except only faulu 
of baseness or of cruelty, against which he 
never failed to manifest the most open scorn 
and detestation. Independent, in short, 
of bis high attainments, Mr. Playfair was 
one of the most amiable and estimable of 
men, delightful in his manners, inflexible 
in his principles, and generous in his af- 
fections ; he had all that could charm in 
society or attach in private ; and while his 
friends eijoyed the free and unstudied 
conversation uf an easy and intelligent as- 
sociate, they bad at all times the proud 
aud inward assurance that be was a being 
upon whose perfect honour and generosity 
they might rely with the most implicit 
confidence, in life and in death ; and of 
whom it was equally impossible, that, un- 
der any circumstancen, he should ever 
perform a mean, a selfish, or a queittion- 
able action, as that his body should cease 
to gravitate, or his soul to live. 

If we do not greatly deceive ourselves, 
there is nothing here of exaggeration ur 
IKirtial feeling, and nothing with which an 
iiidiflterent and honest chronicler would not 
concur. Nor is it altogether idle to have 
dwelt so long on the personal character uf 
this distioguishe<l individual : for we are 
ourselves persuaded that his pernonal cha- 
racter has almost done as much for the 
cause of science and philosophy among 
bis countrymen as the great talents and at- 
tainments with which it was combined, and 
has contributed in a very eminent degree to 
give to the better society of Edinburgh that 
lone of iniflligence and liberality by which 
il is so honourably distinguished. It is 
not a little advantageous to philosophy 
that it is in fashion ; aud il U siiil more 
advantageous, perhaps, to the society 
which is led to confer on it this apparently 
trivial distinction. It is a great thing for 
the country at large — for its luppiufss, 
it4 prosperity, and its lenotrn, tUut the 
CB.wr, Mag. S'/^UmAef, liJW.

upper and influencing part of its popula- 
tion should be made familiar, even in its 
untasked aud social hours, with sound 
and liberal information, and be taught to 
know and respect those who have distin- 
guished themselves for great intellectual 
attainments. Nor is it, after all, a slight 
or despicable reward for a man of genius 
to be received with honour in the highest 
and most elegant society around him, and 
to receive in his living person that homage 
and applause which it too often reserved 
for his memory. Now, those desirable 
ends can never be etroctnaliy accomplish- 
e<l, unless the manners uf our leading 
philosophers are agreeable, and their per- 
sonal habits and dispositions engaging and 
amiable. From the time of Hume and 
Robertson, we have been fortunate in 
Edinburgh in possessing a succession of 
distinguished men, who have kept up this 
salutary connexion between the leanird 
and the fashionable world ; but there ne- 
ver, perhaps, was any one who contributed 
so powerfully to confirm and extend it, 
and that in times when it was peculiarly 
difficult, as the lamented individual of 
whom we are now speaking ; and they who 
have had the most opportunity to observe 
how superior the society of Kdinburgh is 
to that of most other plaees of the sanit; 
size, and how much of that superiority is 
owing to the cordial combination of the 
two aristocracies, of rank and of letters — 
of both of which it happens to bo the chief 
provincial seat — will be hestab!c> to ju<Igc 
of the importan(H; of the scrviec h« ln»i 
thus rendered to its inhabitants, and 
through tlicni, aud by their example, lu .ill

he rebuilt this part of the Church. 
The lide-aile of the chancel* or tide- 
chancel, B^ptmn to have been u»ed 
at a Chapel i ai the ttepi of the altar, 
and the bradcet for lupportin^ the 
holy water-baioUt are ttill remaiaiog. 

The Chnrch hai undergone con- 
§idcrabic alterationt, probably at va- 
rious periodf. Only one of the ori- 
ginal circular-headed windowi re- 
main! ; and the Pointed ityle prevail! 
throughout, excepting in the piers 
and arcbeiiuppoiting the tower. 

But the molt interesting object in 
this Church is the antient Font, which 
from its celebrity, is probably known 
to many of your Antiquarian Headers, 
as one of the most curious in the 
kingdom. It consists of a block of 
black marble about three feet square, 
and 16 inches deep; and exhibition 
its South and West side, the history 
of the creation and fall of man, and 
hisexpuliiou from Paradiie,diiula}cd 
in rude sculpture.-— To avoid ires- 
palling on yc»ur valuable pagei, 1 
muit refer, for a full account of this 
interesting relick of antiquity, to 
Archeologia, vol. X. p. 18S, where is 
a detailed account by Mr. Gough, 
accompanied by a plate. 1 would 
observe, however, that fhe fi^urei 
which he there sl}les dragons, birds, 
&c. are well elucidated by Dr. Mil- 
ner, who, in describing the celebrated 
Font at Winchester Cathedral (which 
this greatly resembici), denominatei 
•imilnr figurci, lalamanden, embleiiti 
of fire; and dovM breathing into the 
sacred chriim, descriptive of the Holy 
Ghost ( alluding to the wordi of M. 
Matthew, ** He shall baptize you 
with the Holy Ghoit, and with fire*." 
The lauie emineut Antiquary refen 
to the portal repreiented on this font 
ai a specimen of the architecture of 
our Saxon anceilori, at a period an- 
tecedent to the Norman conqueit, and 
even ai early as the ninth century f . 

From the will of the pious and 
munificent Wykeham, it appears that 
East Meon partook of his bounty,

From the extreme dampnei* of the 
walli io the chancel, it hat been 
deemed neceisarj to interline the wall 
within the raiit of the altar with a 
pannelling of oak. It muft be la- 
mented, that it has not been exe- 
cuted in a style more suitable to the 
antiquity of the edifice. It is strange, 
that a tablet having a Latin inscrip- 
tion, the top of which is partly visible, 
should have been excluded from the 
observation of laudable curiosilv. 

Passinc^ under an elej^ant Pointed 
arch, we enter the Rast end of the 
South aile, which, till furnished with 
a more suitable appellation, i Khali 
designate our Ladff^t Chapel. Here, 
doubtless, stood the Prothesis, or 
side altar, the remains of which are, 
lierhaps, still visible in the prcsenl 
old table, which has occupied its sta- 
tion under the Kastcrn window from 
time immemorial. Two steps, ex- 
lending the whole breadth of the 
Chapel, and leading up to the altar, 
■till remain; as does also a projection 
in the wall, somewhat in the form of 
a cornice, on which was formerly 
placed the bason containin*^ the holy 
water. Here, in two miserable boxes, 
on the top of one ot which is painted 
memenio morif the arcl\i\ei of lt\e 
Church are prewrvcd. 



The South transept is of the same 
size with the North transept, and 
measures within the walls 25 feet ia 
leDglb, and 17 io breadth. It is 
lighted bj ao acute-eo^led vindowi 
similar to one io the nave. Hen is 
the buryiDg-iilaGo of the hifhlj>r^ 
spectable family of the Ejlct*s« To 
the memory of different branches of 
this familyy fife mural munaoieBls 
are erected, the simple elegance of 
which will secure attention. 

On a small tablet of Sussex marblet 
on the West side of the transept, is 
the following inscription, which, froni 
its simplicity, I take the liberty of 
inserting : 

" HEARS LYtTU TUB 
BODY OP RICHABD 

SMVTUIR, WHO DB- 
PARTBD THIS LIPB IN 

yOPJt OF A BfiTTBB, 
MARCH Y« 16, 1633." 

The communication of the South 
transept with our Lady*t Chapel ea 
the East and the aile on the West, is

which appears to hate been hrokM 
in each of the walls, when the addi- 
tiou hereafter to be mentioned was 
made to the Church. Paasia^ oader 
one of these segments, we enter tin 
aile, by far the most dis^raceftil part 
of the edifice. At the West end, near 
the steps leading into the organ-|pd* 
lery, is another wood-house, which, 
since no fires are kept in the Charcb, 
appears to be altogether superinoia 
At the opposite ei;d of the aile is a 
rude and unsightly gallery, the work- 
manship of which would disgrace the 
most ignorant village mechanic. A^ 
cending the steps of this gallerTy we 
observe in the South wall two ovIobk 
narrow windows^ placed together s£ 
Icr the manner of the latter end of 
the twelfth century, when the pointai 
arch was as yet scarcely knowa.

hand- writing, the eye may be satiitied, 
hul the miud if not mo, if the rules of 
per«picuity be not followed. A trifler 
will carrj hi§ obiervatioa of Iheie 
rules to a ridiculoui ezcetf. He will 
omit neither dot, itop* oor comma i 
ind this remark it to geoerallj true, 
that it bai giveo riie to a prof erbial 
exprcfliion to mark a man of tbii cha- 
racter. 

We may admire what is beautiful 
without bciug able to imitate it, and 
those wh<i have the power so to d«, 
do not alwayi profit by it. The 

Kainter endeavours to copy nature, 
ecause the beauty of the outline, of 
the colouring, and of the composi* 
tion, coMtitnte the excellence of 
the art. In writing, we seek to re- 
present our though It, but they are 
entirely independent of the beauty of 
the characters by which they are re- 
presented. It is this reason which so 
often induces ncelect : l>esidef, even 
though we wisheo to acfpiirc ('le<;ance 
in the style of our hand-writing, it 
is not always attainable. A certain 
talent for imitation, or a taste and 
skill with which all arc not endowed, 
are requisite for this purpose, united 
to an application and practice which 
too many consider beneath their ge> 
nius. To excel in this respect, sup- 
poses either that we have frivolously 
lost time in the acquisition of it, or 
that necessity has cmipcllcd us to 
cultivate a talent, from which we 
hope to profit as a profession. Lite- 
rary men, and men of genius, are 
often reproached for the contrary de- 
fect: we may suspect that it some- 
tiroes proceeds from aflectation, but 
it is in reality more natural than we 
are at first led to believe; the latter 
suffer themselves to be carried away 
by the power of their imaginations, 
the former cultivate it too little. One 
party attaches too much importance 
to outward forms, the other to men- 
tal ornament. There is, however, a 
style of writing, which without being 
beautiful is pleasing ; it is not cramp- 
ed by rules of art, but it possesses a 
^race, an elegance, a je ne scat quoi 
in its formation, which completely 
exonerates it from the charge of neg- 
lect, and prove that the taste is not 
confined to any single object, since it 
is extended to things which may be 
considered of minor importance; it 
Bffbrdn alio the etidence thai the 
mind bsii been cultivated by a WbevaX 



education. When wo write for onr- 
selves alone, we ritmmooly display 
more nejgligeBcei but the mao off 
taste will never forcet wiiat b 4wt9 
himself, though Im m hi* owDjoinL 
Whatever he deci ovghl nol to nk* 
below a certain stBiiunl^ wiMtbw il 
be iolended for the iMpeelicM ef 
others, or merely for UmMlf aloMi 
We put on full dress oaly on pnrtica- 
lar occasions, but when we are bj 
ourselves we ought not to lie totaUy 
devoid of grace and noatneH. Wa 
write with more care when writiig 
to others, and this care exerted on 
all occasions is a reaaonable cvUenci 
of a constant desire to please. The 
hand-writing may be more or km 
ornamented, but however trivial ili 
embellishments may be, vanity p ■!$» 
tatiou, and frivolity, will readily bi 
discerned by the eye of the diinali 
observer. 

Beauty is not always conpatible 
with the prevalence of the more vie^ 
lent passions I grief and anger disfi- 
gure the countenance, whilst lave 
aud joy irradiate it with charma na* 
known to it before. It waa am tbia 
account that the ancient itatuarte 
seldom represented any attitude wMdl 
over-stepned the hounda of modems 
tion. A lover, in vrrilinjg to his mia^ 
tress, if he is agitated by vioknl. 
passion, will undoubtedly diaplay iC' 
by irregularity in the fornaatioa el' 
his letters. If he loves, and wishas 
his fair one to believe so, he will art- 
fully write in a disordered mannwr 
(a little deception is allowable wbea 
we really love)« but the most fm^ 
sionate letter written in astiifibnaal 
hand, would be sufficient to awabsa 
the suspicions of the most infatuated 
being, if indeed any thing lind Ibe 
power to produce such au effisct. 

Art is easy of detection to one vba 
has been accustomed to make mianle 
observations on human nature. Fear« 
it is well known, renders the actions 
unsteady. ShouU any one tbercfera 
endeavour to express thia emoticM m 
writing, it would soon be discovered 
that his hand had been ahaken with 
too much regularity ; and if he aooght 
to represent himself as hurried aloi|; 
by the impulse of strong emotioBi it 
would easily be perceived that tbm 
was somethmg forced and stiff ia hm

from thai of the female sex. We 
may, then, very reasonably conceive, 
that a •teady and rapid hand it ilrongly 
indicative of roeotal energy, lince 
energy if» in point of fact, an union 
of vivacity and firmnesi; it would, 
nevertheless, be ridiculoui to presume 
to calculate the dep^ree in which it ii 
possested i it is sufficient if we can 
discover some traces of it. There is 
another mental power which consists, 
if we may so express it, iu its dura- 
tion, we mean perseverance, for con- 
stancy rather applies to the prolon- 
gation of the sentiment than the sen- 
timent itself. In the first instance the 
hand-writing is well supported to the 
last; in the second it is always simi- 
Jar. A person of a wavering dispo- 
sition may not grow tired of writing, 
but he will be incapable of writing 
lon<; in an uniform manner. 

There is another trait which it is 
very possible to recognize in the 
hand-writing, and which is but sel- 
dom allied to uncommon vivacity— it 
is mildness, or rather what the French 
would call douceur. Examples of this 
sort are often to be met with in the 
hand-writing of Women, and in them 
it is scarcely possible for an acute ob- 
server to be deceived. The distin- 
guishing points on which to form a 
judgment of this style are, first the 
absence of strong and irregular marks 
from the hand-writing, — such as we 
have already proved to denote con- 
trary qualities, and next, a certain 
softness and harmony in the form of 
the letters^ with which (as has been 
foolishly said of the dull poetry of 
Denham) strength, to a certain de- 
gree is also combined. We know of 
no autographs which would more 
completely illustrate our remark than 
those of the *' mild and inoffensive" 
Fenelon, the gentle Kirk White, and 
the Irish poetess, Mrs. Henry Tighe, 
who were, in truth, 
<* Flowers of meekness upon stems of 
grace." 

It is also possible to become ac* 
quainted in some measure with even 
the intellectual qualities through the 
medium of the hand -writing. We 
have already observed, that in writing, 
the hand follows the movement of 
the thoughts. The first remark with 
which this consideration supplies us, 
iff the facility of discerning whether 
the writer be capable of coivliuucA

errors, proves his power of fixing hit 
Ihoughlff, and this proof is of greater 
importance than it at first appears to 
be. Many persoof have been unable, 
after yean of practice, to copy with- 
out erasures, for want of the power 
of confining their attention to the 
subject on which they were engaged. 
Regnard, in his character of the "ab- 
sent man," has taken care to repre- 
sent him under this point of view, 
but with the addition of many hu- 
morous circumstances, suited to the 
genius of the comic Muse. 

If, on the contrary, a roan is sop- 
posed to be occupied with a subject 
which exercises his imagination, or 
his judgment, the ease and rapidity 
with which he traces his thoughts on 
paper, prove the facility with which 
he composes; and it was not wilhoot 
reason that Voltaire, speaking of the 
Telemachus of Fenelon, admired the 
neatness of the manuscripts and the 
rare occurrence of erasures. R. S.

which is termed Benefit of Clergy. 
Yet so small an edition of the Bible

In the ago next procediug Queen 
Elisabeth there were few chimueys 
even in capital townni the fire was

at the roof or door, or window. The 
bouses were wattled and plastered

and utensils were of wood. The peo- 
ple slept on straw pallets, with a log 
of wood for a pillow. (Holioshed.) 

The first lilk stockings that were

AT the time of the great altera- 
tions made in Sali^biiry Cathe- 
dral, iu 1790, or thcrcahoat*, it was 
judged expedient, in order to obtain 
a better view of the Cathedral, to 
remove an antient Building, origi- 
nally a Bell-towor. As the splen- 
did accounts of Salisbury, recently 
published by Messrs. Dodsworth and 
Brilton, contain no repre<ientation of 
account of this Building, I beg you 
to preserve a slight view of it, taken

306 Repairs in Winchester Cathedral viniicakd. {Oct„, 

I now proceed to coDiider Ihe 
stnu't^e suf^f^estion of four Corrtt- 
p •iiilent, for the removal of the wbole 
Choir to Ihe East of the traniepii W> 
cauie to form an entire Choic kvU 
ward of the traoieptp of lliefMU^k 
nieni iuni ai the preieni (mod he does 
not iotifTiate anj deaire that it ibonld 
be curtailed) the Altar would btock 
up the entrance to the Chapel of the 
Virgin \ while the great £aat wiodoWt 
whii'h terniioatct the pre$emt vooU 
be about half way down the prof^ud 
Choir, the height of which, in the 
Eaktorn half, would be iherebj re- 
duced from 78 to 44 feet. Nor it thii 
all, for the tomht of William Ru- 
fu», De Lucy, De Foixy and aeveral 
olhem, niunt be removed, and the 
chantries of Beaufort, Waynfleet, 
Fox, aiid Gardiner, (the combined ef- 
fect of which in their preient rela- 
tive iituationi ii amerted tu exceed 
any thing in thi« country, if not in 
Kuropc,) must be destroyed, or at 
IcMst erected in other, and less eli- 
g^ible place*. The altar-screen toOi 
B'» jufltly admired, must be takca 
down, nnd the hei»ht of the Easteri 
end of the proposed Choir would nol 
admit of its beings replaced, even if 
it conld be eflcctt-d without malila- 
tion; besides which, another Kren, 
placed at the Eastern extremity of the 
Presbytery, which has on its Eastcra 
front nine niches enriched with de- 
(;antly- sculptured canopies, forraerij 
containing statues of eighteen Miats 
nnd monarchs, must be also diiplafiid 
and rendered useless. 

The persons who are now direeti^ 
the repairs of the Cathedral are, the 
Rev. Dr. George Frederick Notl,ooe 
of the prebendaries, and Wiltiam Gar- 
belt, e^q. architect, of Wincheitftr. 
The grand principle by which tkcy 
have been hitherto guided, ia rew^ 
ration in preference to mlienUmf 
and their primary object appearalfrftt 
to reduce every thing (as far u ci^ 
cumstancea will permit) to its io^ 
tine state, by removing all aooinuaw 
and incongruous ornamenta aid ap- 
pendages, which vitiated taste haaat 
diiierent intervening periodi wfM^ 
duccd. 

In elncidaticn of this remark*. I 
beg to observe, that they ere at tbii 
time reitorin«^ with great care^andi 
scrupulous adherence to the origild 
design, the mutilated parts of the at 
Vat %c\^<&M \ vhile lome iirnti which a

employed when 1 saw it on Saturd;iy, 
Aug. iJl, and wir<; d-)in<; the whole 
of it to imitai.e sfouc. 1 will not ka) 
there is no bine introduced in the part 
of the roof towards the West, but i 
confidently assert I taw none, 

** Instead of painting that which 
ought to be so," he adds, *< isdoee with 
a nasiy gl»zy varnish.** The stalls in 
this Chapel, which are of oak, and 
carved in a very chaste and beautiful 
manner, have been varnished i and the 
faint remains of I he legendary paint- 
ings on the EiiHtern ei:d of Ihe North 
and South walls, in order to preserve 
them, have been \arnishcd also; but 
1 can discover nothing oRennively 
glazy in their appearance, much less 
any thing to he juNtly leimed ** nasty." 
It is scarcely possible your Correspon- 
dent can wixh IheHa/ls to be painted; 
and the K'tilh conld nol, without ob- 
literatin*; the antient legends to which 
I have alluded, and which I conceive 
every Antiquary would be anxious to 
preftcrve. 1 am therefore at a loss to 
diicover where this painting is re- 
quired. 

With respect to the statues of the 
four monarchs at Ihe angles of the 
tower, which possess so little of kingly 
dignity at to be mistaken for ** four 
Scotchmen playing on bagpipes," it 
will suffice to say, the blame can only 
attarh to those by whom they were 
executed, and placed in the situations 
they occupy. 

Whether the or^an shall remain in 
its pretent liluatien under the Nor- 
thern arch of the tower, or be placed 
at the West end of the choir, is not 
yet (as 1 understand) finally decided i 
if it remains, the arch towards the 
. Southern transept roust also, 1 con- 
ceive, continue to be stopped up i if 
it ii removed (** a consummation de- 
voutly to be wished"), both the arches 
opening to the transept will be cleared 
of their iDcnmhrances i and therefore 
for thi8 alteration, as well as for tak- 
ing awaj the screen ascribed to Ini^^o 
Jones at the entrance of the choir, 
and the opening the first itory of the 
tower (which wouU give to the choir 
the sublime and impressive effect so 
well delineated in the engraving by 
BftdclyflS!, in Britton*s History of 
Winchester Cathedral,) I am an ear- 
nest and decided advocate. By the 
bye, this last alteration, if made, 
wovid occasion the removal of the 
oSbagire statuef .
