Tna whole of Literature, as regards its form (forma), mny be 
comprised in books, pamphlets, and magazines, — which division 
may be said to correspond with works finished and complete ; with 
partial observations and temporary comments ; and, thirdly, with 
the first scattered elements of tliought, and the original ideas sug- 
gested by the subject. The Magazine is comparatively of late 
introduction into tha literature of our country ; and its place was 
previously supphed by pamphlets and tracts, of all sizes and 
descriptions, including small treatises, down to single sheets, and 
even solitary leaves. But, valuable as these often were separately, 
and of increased importance when collected, ohe undeniable defect 
attended this form of publication, — that they were easily lost, and 
when lost seldom recovered or replaced ; and thus they became 
"Jiiffilive pieces" in a double sense of the word. " Pamphlets and 
small tracts," says Dr. Johnson, " make a very important part of 
an English library; nor are there any pieces upon which those 
who aspire to the reputation of judicious collectors of books bestow 
more attention or greater expense; because many advantages may 
be expected from the perusal of these small productions, which 
are scarcely to be found in that of larger works." But of a class 
of works so judiciously and highly esteemed it would be useless to 
conjecture the proportion that must have perished from neglect 
and accident, dating from their 6rst appearance, which is supposed 
to have been about the time of the Reformation. Dr. Johnson in 
his days thought that no time was to be lost in securing them from 
further dangerof destruction, and advised their being placed in safety 
by being collected into volumes, and distributed according to their 
subjects. In the present day the Mayarine has in a great measure 
offered a better and safer channel for such communications as the 
pamphlet was formerly the only vehicle for afTording : it has also 
the advantage of more easily adapting its dimensions to the exact 
importance of the subject, and of interposing spaces and pauses, if 
required, between different parts and divisions of the subject. 
Here, amidst the various communications of the Magazine, the j 


faint spark of a thought may l>e struck out^ which may subse- 
quently kindle into a brighter flame^ till it increases into the steady 
light of a mature and confirmed knowledge. Here the first blossom 
of truth may find a friendly shelter to expand^ and that theory be 
timidly advanced^ which is hereafter to consolidate itself into a 
system^ and be ranked among the discoveries of truth. Such is 
the use and such the purpose of our Magazine among others ; and 
it is with the best judgment that its founders and proprietors have 
in a great measure confined it to a certain class or circle of subjects. 
For without some definite path of research^ without some circum- 
scription of inquiry, attention would be wasted, and the advance- 
ment of knowledge retarded. Accuracy can only be attained by 
confining ourselves to a limited sphere, and by repeated investi- 
gation of the same subject. It is true that we cannot hope equally 
to please the taste or satisfy the wants of all readers ; but this may 
be said of all works equally as of ours. No writer can hope to 
satisfy all ; let him confine his ambition in the narrower desire of 
pleasing and instructing some. Those, too, whose delight is to 
look curiously after slight inaccuracies either of style or fact may 
occasionally find them in our pages, as in those of others. Some 
arise from the very nature of our publication, which cannot be 
delayed to meet^rolonged researches, or wait'for a more scrupulous 
elaboration of style; but we are quite willing to place ourselves^ in 
this respect, in competition not only with similar works to our 
own, but with those that assume a far higher title, and aspire to a 
more extensive fame. No doubt, too, there is a difference in 
the comparative value of many of the articles included in our 
general mass of information ; and this arises partly from the nature 
of the subjects, partly from the degrees of talent or learning in our 
correspondents ; but this, too, is the common lot of all that is 
subjected to the labour of man : even the gifts of nature are 
bestowed on us with a promiscuous mixture of the valuable and 
the worthless ; the ore of the richest mine is accompanied with 
dross, and the gold and gems of the Peruvian mines are intermixed 
witli the sand and ooze of the rivers where they are found.

Picture) from Itali/. By Charlei Dickent, Eiq. 
WITHOUT possessing Biiy single writer of our country who haa 
composed a book of Italian IrareU of eminent merlu we have had, old and 
Dew. a very large variety of works on the subject, sufficient to shew 
whether our traasalpine travellers were gifVd with that intelligence of 
judgment and delicacy of feeling which would enable them to view with 
advantage the treasures of a country that mny be called tbe " Museum of 
the World." Perhaps Italy, taking it in toto, would make a larger demand 
upon tbe talents, tastes, and acquirements of a stranger than any other 
European country ; and it could scarcely be expected that any one mind 
could be so richly gifted, or any knowlct^ so exuberant, as to appreciate 
all its diversified treasures, ancient and modem. Tbe history of the lite- 
rature of Italy may be justly said to be the history of tbe progress of the 
hnmao mind in all the Christian world. To have engraved on one's memory 
tbe wcred records of its early history, and our imagination Glled with 
recoUections of its poetic gloriea, — to embrace only an epitome of all that 
tie gigantic labours of antiquaries have brought to light of its medieval 
history,* — to possess some portion of that delicate sensibility, that fine 
appreciation, and that keen judgment with which Winkelman surveyed the 
remains of its sculpture as with a master's eye, — to estimate tbe spirit by 
which the early masters of painting were directed, when the pencil was guided 
at once by the force of genius and the spirit of devotion, — to trace also the 
progress of that enchanting art which nature — nt least in modem limes — 
■pprars to have withheld from every other country to lavish with a pBrtial 
hand and more willing profusion on tbe Land of Song , — great as would be 
tht acquirements which could embrace these subjects, much more would be 
required before anything like a mental picture of this eitniordinary people and 
country could be presented. Why. one branch of art alone, its architecture, 
in its rise forming a coonecling link between the ancient and modem, would 
of it«elf almost demand the labour of a life ! And how much even now do 
we omit to make the hisH)ry of art complete I Large portions of its noble 
nlleries are unseen by any stranger's eye; many of its costliest cabinets 
h&Te never been explored by any foreign hand. We recoUecl no traveller

of oor own country who has given any account of that beautiful miniaturg 
sculpture which is »oen glowing on the onyx, the cnmeo. and other costly 
gems ; or of the DO less matchleijB forms of beauty rising from the silver wir- 
face of the coins of Sicily and lonia;orof the drawings of the ancient musters, 
those faithful guides to our knowledge of their purpose and iiit«nt in their 
finished and elaborate pictures. Each of these branches of art, of which 
two are only to be found in Il&ly (as pearls in their native bed,) in their 
proper fonn and lustre, seem entirely to have escaped observation, or not met 
with that tuste and acquirement which could estimate and explain their 
trauscendunt worth and Iteauty, Then we should require to bo informed of 
the living as of the dead, and turn to the workman as well as (o his work. 
We must become ucqiuiiTited with tlie spirit of their modern institutions, the 
government, the laws under which this nntioual mind has been developed 
and improved. We must be admitted into those social and domestic circles 
which would unfold to us the private feelings and habits and intercourse 
of the inhabiiants ; and, lastly, we must possess that warmth of feeling 
and delicacy of laslo which would make the very land we trod on as a 
«acred spot under our feet, which would animate and fill the splendid 
scenery we viewed with historic forma and deeds of imperishable fame, and, 
as we journeyed on, from every alpine height, and from every myrtle plain, 
— from every forest dark with its gigantic pine, and every sunny shore 
glowing with its cBstem palm, — we should build up in our iancy a princely 
coronet once more to adorn Ausonia's aged browH, and hear from every 
solitary echo a voice that apoke of brighter days to arise over the i-ilenl 
and melancholy decay of a " forlorn and weary land." The task, how- 
over, which is too laborious for one, uiuy be divided among the exertions 
of many. Nor have wc wanted men of talent, scholars, antiquaries, and 
artists, who have gone forth well InstructtHl in their respective branches 
of knowledge ; so tbnt we have reaped much information from the result of 
their successful labours. Still there was ample room for one who should 
catch thelivingmanncrs,of the coimtry as they rise; who, gifted with a quick 
perception, a diacriminoting judgment, habits of observntJoii, knowledge 
of human nature, and hapiiy powers of embodying bis thoughts in Ibd- 
gunge, should sun'ey the different walks of life, and give us lively por- 
traitures of the natural manners, and the most striking peculiarities of the 
people ; the artificial systems of the groat, and the indigenous habits of the 
vulgar ; peep behiud the mask of the carnival, creep through the corridor of 
the convent, listen to the intrigue of the boudoir, paint like Watlcau the 
evening promenade in the ilex lawns of the Borghese gardens ; or, like Jan 
Steen, mingle with the rustic crowd tlial are tuning their light guitars, and 
emptying their sunny wine-flasks round the porch of the Albergo Meloni. 
There would be no want of amusing uontratlt in such a land of lights and 
■hades as this, if the pencil could be found to mark them. There might 
be seen, for instance, the most republican country in Europe with a 
despotic king on every throne ; the mont irreverent portion of all Catho- 
licism living at Rome under the Pope's eye. One might see a priest 
saying mass beside the naked statues of the (iraccs, and might hear 
churchmen invoking the heathen gods as if they never had heard of the 
New Testament. One might find picturett of Venus and the loves on the 
gates of St. Peler's, and hear nf people sent to prison for not communi- 
cating at Eaater ; listen to a mother talking of her daughter having a ^t 
oftavi!, as if she hud bad a fit of the ague or a fever ; hear of a celebrated

author dying of laughter on being- told of his nisterV infamy ; look at a r 
of akeletons sitting dressed in green silk gloves and red velvet slippers ; 
listen to a Capuchin friar mumbling his prayers on the very spot where 
Cicero lived ; and see the Bishop of TivoU taking tithes of the corn growing 
on the fields of Horace's Sabine farm. The pencil that drew Gil Bias 
could have done this, and we had enpected the same from the author of 
the Kckwiek Papers. When l.e Sage, in hia inimitable novel, painted 
Spanish intrigues and Spanish character, he understood the Spanish 
language ; but Mr. Dickens's mistake was in dcacribiog the interior of a 
houK, when he did not possess the key which unlocked the outer door. 
H« went to Italy not knowing a word of the Italian language : he could 
aee, hut he could not speak. His "brave courier" was his interpreter; 
bis winged Mercury, the tongue of hia mind ; and so the bright original text 
waa turned into a dull prosaic column of " interpretation" at the side of it. 
It bextremely difficult for an Englishman in Italy to get admission into the 
saloons of the great : few advance beyond the hospitable banker's door. 
Without an intimate knowledgcof the various provincial dialects,and a quick, 
isstiDctive nicety of ear, it is impossible to understand the humours and 
allusions of the common people; and so Mr. Dickens must have been 
content to wrap his mantle about him, and be a silent spectator of the land 
he weut to dwell in and describe. 

When Milton visited Italy, he brought to that country a mind enriched 
by long years of intense study in all that related to her history and literature, 
ancient and modem. lie wrote in the language of ancient Rome ; he con- 
versed in the dialect of modern. To what the Italians called an " angel'a 
beauty " he added, what they no less admired, a '* scholar's knowledge." 
How they received him and bow they admired him, let their letters — let their 
poems tell .' How honoured he was at Florence and at Rome ! How 
dear too he was to Manso, who had been Tasao'a friend I 

With genius only iuferior, and with acquirements perhaps as great, in 
later times Gray also resided when young in the land of song, and rich wu 
the harvest of knowledge which he there piled up for fiiture use, as we 
hare had verj- peculiar opportunities of knowing. Scholar, artist, musician, 
poet, all were united in high escellence in his single mind ; and England 
may well be proud whcu men, gifted as these men were, go forth to pay 
their homage to the land from whose hand they had drawn the pure " nec- 
taJTCOus stream," and to imbibe through the eye a living picture of those 
•cnif^ on which memory and fancy had so long loved to dwell. It cannot 
be otherwise : travel where we may, if we bring nothing, we carry nothing 
away. When tee were in Italy nothing oppressed us so much as the constant 
feelmg of our ignorance ; we knew that we were living among treasures of 
" unsummed gold " that it would take lives to cihaust ; we saw everj'thing 
bat in a dim mysterious twilight ; we gathered only a few wild leaves &om 
every scattered branch : and what, alas ! does memory hold now in her 
frail and faithless hands ? a handful of dust plucked from the Eonim ; a 
witbered violet that bloomed unseen on Prestum's marble plain ! But all 
this b fiir back in the past ; long years of clouds and darkness have rolled 
between, — and yet we still seem at distant intervals to breathe the fragrant 
air of its enchanted shores, — and majestic figures pass and repass, in severe 
and solitary beauty, before our eyes, as they alone were the rightful inha- 
httanta of that terrestrial paradise; and sounds, too, are sometimes heard by 
a>> sncb Sfi the world owns not uow, — sounds of immortal song, rising,

We tfaiiik Mr. DickcnB would have better consulted his geDiua and hia 
fame bad he thrown hit preieot narrative into the form of letters, as Sterne 
did ; it would hare suited better his style of writing, — been more lively 
and more dramatic. Or, if he could have formed the whole into stories,aj 
Madame do Statil threw her travels in Italy into Corinne, theu his inven- 
tions and his einbelliebmients, his Mrs. Davis and his brave courier, and his 
" raven " and k/c auui/uiliie, would not have been out of place i his present 
narrow range of allusion would have been concealed, and if there had been 
au entertaining story it would not have signified, if it had been written in 
England. However, the author of Nickleby, and Rckwick, and Bomaby 
Itiidge, and Oliver Twist, is a person of such genius that his readers must 
find some entertainment or instruction, even where the author himself 
obtains no fame. It is quite evident that Mr. Dickens, in all his descrip- 
tions, brings very largely into use his own inventive resources : a singla 
idea wilt in his mind soon sprout into a thousand hciid:i. He lives, as 
Mousicur Delaville lived, in a house full of masks ; he has a dramatic 
wardrobe, fitting every characler he likes to create ; and he baa been so 
long used to the coloured glasses of the slage-lights, that he docs not care 
to use the plain spectacles of common life. We trust in his tranquil sojouni 
in Switzerland that he will have leisure to return to his old and favourite 
studies, in which he is sure to deserve and to commaud success. There he 
is in his proper and native element ; there he may with contidence unfurl 
on«! more the prosperous sails of his genius, and spread his flowing canvass 
freely to the winds, 

In the specimens we are about to give from the volume, wo thought at 
first of making a cbissificatiDn of the subjecbi, and of throwing them under Uie 
classes of description, obscn'ations of manners, humour, &C. ; but, after all, 
it appears best to lake the subjects as they follow each other in Mr. 
Dickens's narrative, as perhaps more pleasing from the contrasts, and 
more in harmony with his own arrangements, ile begins, as we might 
expect, with the theatre : —

The following is a ^thful portrait of the lovely scenery which it 
describes, and on which our recollection hangs with some touches of pride 
and satis&ctiony for that we were the first, the very first, who ever traveraed 
that beautiful road which winds along this enchanted cosit, long bafore it 
was opened for public use. 

** There is nothing in Italy more beau- 
tiful to me, than the coast-road between 
Genoa and Speszia. On one side, — some- 
times far below, sometimes nearly on a 
level with the road, and often skirted by 
broken rocks of many shapes, there is 
the free blue sea, with here and there a 
picturesque fel(ica gliding slowly on ; on 
the other fdde, are lofty hills, ravines be- 
sprinkled witli white cottages, patches of 
dark olive woods, country churohes with 
their light open towers, and country 
houses gaily painted. On every bank and 
knoll by the wayside, the wild cactus and 
aloe flourish in exuberant profusion ; and 
the gardens of the bright villages along 
the road, are seen, all blashing in the 
Btmimer-time with clusters of the bellso 
donna, and are fragrant in the autumn 
and winter with golden oranges and le- 
mons. Some of the villages are inhabited, 
almost exclasively, by fishermen ; and it 
is pleasant to see their great boats hauled 
upon the beach, making little patches of 
dbade, where they lie asleep, or where the 
women and children sit romping and 
looking out to sea, while they mend their 
nets upon the shore. There is one town, 
Camoglia, with its little harbour on the 
aea, hundreds of feet below the road : 
where families of manners live, who, time 
out of mind, have owned coasting-vessels 
in that place, and have traded to Spain 
and elsewhere. Seen from the road above, 
it is like a tiny model on the margin of 
the dimpled water, shining in the sun. 
Descended into, by the winding mule- 

The scenery of the marble quarries of Carrara has never, to one's know>^ 
ledge, been so faithfully, or picturesquely described, as in the present vo- 
lume. We extract a small portion.

tracks, it is a perfect miniature of a pri- 
mitive seafaring town ; the saltest, rough- 
est, most piratical fittle place that ever 
was seen. Chreat rusty iron rings and 
mooring-chains, capstans, and frag ment! 
of old masts and spars, choke up the way; 
hardy rough-weather bouts, and seamen's 
clothing, flutter in the little harbonrv or 
are drawn out on the sunny atones to dry ; 
on the parapet of the rude pier, a few 
amphibious looking fellows lie asleep, 
with their legs dangling over the wall, ia 
though earth or water were all one to 
them, and if they slipped in, they would 
float away, dosing comfortably among the 
fishes ; the churdi is bright with trophies 
of the sea, and votive offerings, in com- 
memoration of escape fh>m storm and 
shipwreck. The dwellings not immedi- 
ately abutting on the harbour are ap- 
proached by blind low archways, and by 
crooked steps, as if in darkness and in 
difficulty of access they should be like 
holds of ships, or inconvenient cabins 
under water ; and every where, there is a 
smell of fish, and seaweed, and old rope. 
The coast-road whence Camoglia is de- 
scried so far below, is famous, in the 
warm season, especially in some parts 
near Genoa, for firt-JUn, Walking 
there, on a dark night, I have seen it

and pervaded the whole air,'* &c.

But frmn the Tower, and the wonders of early art in the Campo S«nto»

soon called off to topics more congenial to his pencil.

The Coliseum : — 

I had expected to see it

people came and went all day. It was a 
sarpriae to me to dad it in a grave re- 
tired place apart firom the general resort, 
aad carpeted with sawoch green tnrf. 
Bat tbe groap of baildiags rlastered on 
and aboat this verdant carpet, comp.-isinf

aad the Charch of the Campo S«aro, is per- 
hapa the moat reauukahle aad beaatifBl

Bory tranaactioas aad 4^taix]a of the town,

prcaaive character. It is the architectaral 
atttkit of a rich old city, with all iu coos- 
Bioa life aad comnsoo habitatioas preaaed 
oat and filtered away. Sumamdi com- 
parca the tower to the asaal pictorial re-

and convey! a better idea of the baildiag 
than chapters of laboared description*

Going throagh the streets, /Ae/roa/t ^lAc

all so still aad qoiet, aad anlike hoaaaa 
with people in them, that tbe greater part 
of the city has the appearance of a city at 
daybreak, or during a general siesta of 
the popalation. Or it is yet more like 
those backgrounds of hoases in common 
prints* or old engravings, where windows 
and doors are s<)uarely indicated, and one

" Go to the Coliseum .... It is no

that for a moment, actually in pasaing in, 
they who will may have the whole great 
ptte before them, as it uf ed to be, with 
thousands of eager fiitces staring down into 
tbe araoa, aad sach a whirl of strife, and 
blood, and dast goiag on there as no

awfolbeaaty, and its atter desolation,strike 
apon the stranger, tbe next moment, like 
a softened sorrow ; and never in his life, 
perhaps, will he be so moved and overcome 
by any aight, not immediately connected 
with bis own affections and afflictions. To 
see it crambling there, an inch a year ; its 
walla and arches overgrown with green ; 
its oorridon open to the day; the long 

grass growing in its porches ; young trees 
of yesterday springing op on its ragged

Fight filled up with earth, and tbe peace- 
ful cross planted in the centre ; to climb

archea of Constaiitine. Septiniios Severus,

times hnrdly justifies his panegyric. There 
IS squalid Tivoli, with the river Anio 
diverted from its course, and plunging 
down headlong, some eighty feet in 
search of it ; with its picturesque temple 
of the Sybil, perched high on a crag ; its 
minor waterfalls glancing and sparkling in 
the sun ; and one good cavern yawning 
darkly, where the river takes a fearful 
plunge, and shoots on, low down, under 
beetling rocks. There, too, is the villa 
D*Este, deserted and decaying among 
groves of melancholy pine and bypresa 
trees, where it seems to lie in state. 
Then, there is Frascati, and, on the steep 
above it, the ruins of Tusculum, where 
Cicero lived, and wrote, and adorned his 
favourite house (some fragments of it may 
yet be seen there), and where Cato was 
born. We saw its ruined amphitheatre 
on a grey dull day, when a shrill March 
wind was blowing, and when the scattered 
stonps of the old city lay strewn about the 
lonely eminence, as desolate and dead as 
the ashes of a long extinguished fire. One 
day, we walked out, a little party of three, 
to Albano, fourteen miles distant; pos- 
sessed by a great desire to go there, by 
the ancient Appian way, long since ru- 
ined and overgrown. We started at half- 
past seven in the morning, and within an 
hour or so were out upon the open Cam- 
pagpia. For twelve miles, we went climb- 
ing on, over an unbroken succession of 
mounds, and heaps, and hills, of ruin. 
Tombs and temples, overthrown and 

prostrate ; small fragments of coHimMy 
friezes, pediments; great blocks of granlta 
and marble; mouldering arches, graai 
grown and decayed; ruin enough to 
build a spacious city from; lay atrewn 
about us. — Sometimes loose walls, bnOl 
up from these fragments by the shepherds, 
came across our path ; sometimes, a ditck 
between two mounds of broken siooaia 
obstructed our pros^ress ; sometimes, ths 
fragments themselves, rolling from beMath 
our feet, made it a toilsome matter to ad- 
vance ; but it was always ruim. Now, «8 
tracked a piece of the old road, above tlie 
ground ; now traced it, underneath a 
grassy covering, as if th«t were its grave ; 
but all the way was ruin. In the distance, 
ruined aqueducts went stalking on their 
giant course along the phin ; and ereiy 
breath of wind that swept towards QS, 
stirred early flowers and 'grasses, sprinrag 
up spontaneously, on miles of ruin. The 
unseen larks above us, who alone die* 
turbed the awful silence, had their nests fan 
ruin ; and the fierce herdsmen clad hi 
sheep skins, who now and then scowled 
out upon us from their sleeping nooke, 
were housed in ruin. The aspect (rf* the 
desolate Campagna in one direction, where 
it was most level, reminded me of an 
American prairie ; but what is the soli* 
tude of a region where men have never 
dwelt, to that of a desert, where a mighty 
race have left their footprints in the 
esrth from which they have vanished; 
where the resting-places of their Dead, 
have fallen like their Dead ; and the broken of Time, is but a heap of idle 
dufrt I Returning, by the road, at sunset ; 
and looking, from the distance, on the 
course we had taken in the morning, I 
almost felt (as I had felt when I first 
saw it, at that hour) as if the sun would 
never rise again, but looked its last, that 
night, upon a ruined world,*' &c. 

Mr. Dickens was witness to the ceremonies of Easter, though Protestant 
eyes have no business there, and Protestant pens are not the pens to 
describe them : but we must break off — ^the great clock of St. Peter's is 
even now striking ; wc shall be too late if we wait a moment longer. See^ 
the Cardinals' carriages are all standing empty in the shade ; and hark, 
those strains of unearthly mu?ic are winding their lingering way through 
the echoes of the immortal dome of Michael Angelo I 

" I think the most popular and most 
crowded sight (excepting those of Esster 
Sunday and Monday, which are open to 
all classes of people), was the Pope wash- 
ing the feet of thirteen meui representiog 

the twelve apostles and Judas Iscariot. 
The place in which this pious office is 
performed is one of the chapels of St. 
Peter's, which is gaily decorated for the 
occasion ; the thirteen sitting < all of «

There are in this Tolume numerous little i|iiaiDtnesfes, obliquities, aud 
odilitics of expression, peculiar locutions, all Mr. Dickens's own, such as we 
have been used to in his previous works, modes of thinking aud writing; 
that have been habitual to him, that he cannot do without ; some very amus- 
ing, lomc overstr^ned, and uot to be swallowed without an effort : Uiey are 
niiroeroui! enough to any one who will look after them ; as for instance : —

light he has in his imitation of the cock." — F. £3. Describing the beg^rs 
at Genoa, " Sometimes they are visited by a man without legs, ou a Utile 
go-cart, but who has such a fresh -coloured, lively face, and such a re- 
apeclable, well -conditioned body, that he looks as if he bad sunk into the 
ground up to his middle, or had come but partially up a flight of cellar-

extend from tree to tree in 30 graceful and picturesque a maouer, must strike 
every ey^i but it is not any iraa^nation that has described "the long line 
of trees all buund and garlanded together, 09 if they had taken hold of one 
another, and are coining dancing down the field." The amphitheatre of 
Verona has suggested many a picturesque association lo the classical travelier, 
but probably never before that of '■ being like the inside of a prodigious 
hat of plaited straw, with an enormously broad brim and shallow crown." 
These are a few of Mr. Dickens's odd quaintnesscs, humorous touches, and 
conceits — mannerisms of his own — often exciting a smile — a laugh, as ofleo 
markittg how much his favourite recreations and studies are in his daily 
thoughts ; aa, for instance, speaking of the Pope's Swiss Guards : " They 
wear a quaint striped surcoat and striped tight legs, and carry halberU 
like those which are ustially shouldered by theatrical supernumeraries, 
who never con get off the stage fast enough, and who may be generally 
observed to titigrr in the enemy'i camp after the open country, held iy 
the opponte fbree», ha* been iplit up the middle by a convuliion of 
nature." L'pon the whole, after our perusal of this volume, admirers as 
we are to the full of Mr. Dickens's genius, in his various works of fiction, 
we hardly feel that the foUowiog sentence of an animated historian, 
whom we have previously mentioned, describing Goldoni's talents and 
aequirements, would he unjust towards the character of ihe writer of 
Pictures of Italy, but without allusion to his other productions : — " His 
life would seem' to be spent among actors and play-writers ; his acqiiainU 
Mice wa« with stage heroes and heroines. He had but rare opportunities 
of on intimate intercourse with the betit classej^. Like one of our modern 
tourists he travelled through, but had h.ardly leisure to inspect, the world : 
he ssw it through thi? glare of the stag;e-iamps. His heroes too of^n 
reniind us of the green-room ; their faded lineaments are apparent through 
the Tumish of their theatrical paint,"* &c.

I was more partieulorlv i 
lo this subject by a sligbt 
which 1 had rather contemplated than 

made, into the origin of the house of 
Herbert, Marquesses of Powis, und 
Earls of Pembroke, Mantaomcrir, and 
Carmarthen ; a race indeed sufficiently 
illustrious in its historical characters, 
to require no false glare of hypothetical 
pedigree ; but,whosc real source, from 
that very circumstance, is not perhaps 
unworthy of investigation. The com- 
mon ancestor of the -various lines of 
Herbert is beyond doubt a Welshnuin, 
Thomas ap Gwilim ap Jenkln, of 
LUnsanfraed, living in the reign of 
Richard the Second: who accjuired 
the Castle of KagUnd, in Monmouth- 
shire, by his marriase with Maud, 
daughter of Sir John Morley, lord of 
lhat|ilac«,whichpogsession isatthisday

of the first rrciitinii, nmrrii'r! lo liis 
direct male anwstor, Cluirlc? Somer- 
set, first Earl of Worcester. This 
Thomas ap Gwilim is stud by Collins 
to have ilescended in ihe fifUi degree 
from a Peter Herbert, married " as 
the British Heralds assert," to Alice, 
daughter and heir of Brethin Brode- 
spere. To this point there is, I think, 
sure, at least fair evidence, inos- 
mucli ns Itcffinalil Herbert, the win of 
Pclcr, inherited Llanbowel through his 
mother Brethin. But who this Peter 
Herherl might be, seems a question to 
Collins himself, who is sUrtlctl at the 

onachronisiD of the Herald GlovsA 
when that functionary introduces I " 
as the son of Reginald Herbert, 
brother and heir of Herbert FiUt-Petov.' 
There is, I presume, sufficient evi- 
dence that Herbert Fitz-Peter (who, 
if not a Baron of the realm, at least 
held his lands by military service, sad 
appears to have been Lord of Breck- 
nock, mnon;; ninnv other jiotisessiotis} 
died in 1247, or 1248, leaving Regi- 
nald his brother and heir ; but whether 
Reginald himself had a brother named 
Peter, or whether Reginald had a 
younger son of that name, or whether 
one or the other is identified with 
Peter Herbert, the husband of Alice 
Brodesperc, who, from whatever itoek^ 
derived, sras, I think, the am " 
of the Herberts, — ia a matter of doul 
so f itr OS Colli ns's information 
The same sort of tangible ' 
which proves that Herbert Fiti-PeUr' 
died without issue, and left his brother 
Reginald his heir, shews him also ts 
be the son of Peter Herbert, a baroa 
of the realm in the reign of Kiii| 
John, and that his father, Herbert 
Fitz- Herbert, was chamberlain to 
Kiiig Steiihen, from whom, says Cam- 
den (perhaps with oassive caution),

Lord BnmgharrCt Life of Voltaire. 


Hk. UuAX, Cork, May 9. 

YOUR publication for this montli 
oineoi with a valuable crjtique^, so far 
•« it extends, on Lord Brougham's 
Lile of Volture, constituting ptut of 
his kmlBhip's recent volume, on " The 
Men of Letl«r9 and Science who 
nourithed in the time of George IH." 

That the learned peer came inode- 
(liutdy prepared for die undertaking 
i* tbere uncquivocallf eipresaed, and 
would have been far more lar^j 
piDTed, had the critic included in bis 
project a more comprehensive view of 
the work than that to which he has 
limited himself, — " of givine to your 
readers some idea of the optnionft en- 
tertained of Volt<ure's writings by 
{tenons of his own natioD, who lived 
ID later times." Two or three of his 
lonUhJp's errors are cursorily adverted 
to i bat nomerou}, beyond ccneral ob- 
serrsCion. will be found those which 
strict inquiry must discover. X re- 
IwsDce to the anlerior numbers of 
tfuii Journal, had their chamcter 
nihcd his plan, would have enabled 
the reviewer to con«ct several, as I 
tbotl have occasion to indicate ; inde- 
pendontly of others, which collectively, 
a detttiled eladdation, would occupy 
> ^prentcr space tbuit iliecretion pre- 
tcnbe* to me. Some few, however, 
of flamnt comiidisioD, which cannot 
be li^tly passed over, will probably 
strike his lordship's admirers with 

Our ex-(?Imncdilor's object, accord- 
]af to the reviewer, " was to give us 
a morr autliantic portrait of \ oltairc 
than that {ireseutttii by Condort«t, in 
Hm Lileof Voltairei" while, in fact, he 
ha* adopted nearly all that biogra- 
]^ef ■ Cmltj. Thus, he aUtes that the 

des comptes vont tres mali" and to 
the latter, " Ma fortune prend une 
toumure ai diaboliqne, que je seriu 
peut-^tre obligii de travailler pour 
vivre." In feet, his entire family in- 
heritance from father and brother 
only amotinted to four thousand francs 
a-year, though at his death he en- 
joyed an income fully equivalent to 
10,000/. sterling, otherwise acquired 
through a variety of combioed cban- 
neb. The advance of fortune from 
20«. or 300i. a-year (strictly only 
1B«.), to IO,(XKW. u not usuid m lite- 

Arauo, Lord Brougham, copyit:g 
Condorcet, says, " A small estate, pos- 
sessed by the father, was called VoU 
tiure ; and the custom being in those 
days for younger children of wealthy 
commoners to take the name of their 
estate, leaving the family name to the 
eldest, Francois Marie, as the younger 
of the two sons, took the name of 
Voltaire." Now all this is utterly 
groundless, for no such property waa 
possessed by the father, or in truti 
existed ; and the name was nmplv the 
anaeraui of his natemal one, wiUi the 
distmctive adi^bon of/./, for Itjetau, 
or junior, his brother bi'ing ihc senior, 
or Faiai, an in tlic Dapin family at 
the present day. The proof vnlt 
be thus establisbed inconlrorertibly 
when placed in juxtapoaiUon. 

BXflKqiier office of cousiJerablc eino- 
luawut" (pagt- 12); words liorrowetl 
from Condorcet, Iiul M. Lc Pan, ano- 
ther bit^rapher, demonstrably shews, 
from the existing rcglstei-s of the of- 
fice, that the lituatiou held by Arouet. 
the father, was a subordinate one ; 
and Voltaire's own correspondence 
wltli Tbiriot, under dut« of 34 Sep- 
Imiber. ITii, and with iMadame de 
Bcruibres, in the month of .luly, lT2o,

Every lettei- of the oririnal patro- 
nymic, with the adjunct of 1. j. will be 
here found repeated in the assumed

well known, tne same, or at least al- 
ways confounded or convertible with 
the r and i, adopted in the new name,

VolUure had little fondness for the 
family designation. " Je vous ai en-

OB the whole there seems no suffident 
reaaoD to auection the Platonic cha- 
neter of Voltaire*! interoourse with 
Madame Da Chitelet, which the re- 
viewer pamingi T notes as a mistake ; 
but distinct evidence of its criminality, 
open and nnveiled, is dedocible fixmi 
¥oltaire*s correqxmdence, and at- 
tested bj an' accnmulation of contem- 
poraneous testimony, which assures 
OS that the lady had been rather pro- 
d%al of her favoors ; for amongst her 
previous lovers, the Duke of Richelieu 
was liejond doubt a successful one, 
and both during and after Voltaire's 
intercourse, the nandsome Marquis de 
8t Lambert was admitted to her bed. 
He was indeed the father of the child 
whose birth caused her death, for 
which Voltaire bitterly reproached 
him, and sympathised with the passive 
husband on this consequence of the 
triumph obtained by their younger 
rival over both. It is singular enough 
that the two most celebrated men of 
the age were thus sacrificed to the 
superior personal attractions of St. 
Lambert ; for, some few years after, he 
Was preferred to J. J. Rousseau, by 
Madame de Houdet(>t, the eccentric 
Genevan*s only genuine love. 

The reviewer truly observes, that 
Lord Brougham most erroneously 
ascribes to Voltaire the merit of 
having been the first to throw new 
Ught on the early history of Rome, 
^rizonius, in his " Animadversiones 
Historical, in quibus (juam plurima 
in priscis Romanarum rerum auctori- 
bus notantur," (Amsterd. 1685, 8vo), 

Nuova," first published at Naples, in 
1725 ; and again^ Beaufort m his 
** Dissertations sur Flncertitude dcs 
cinq premiers sidles de FHistoire Ro- 
ihlune,** which appeared in 1738. All 
these, with others, had expressed the 
▼lews more recently unfolded by 
Niebuhr ; whereas Voltaire's observa- 
tions first met the public eye in an 
article of the Encyclopedic, printed

by the accompliMcd peer's itdoption.

general at Tonloofle, where, in 1793, 
I heard seyeral impartial and most 
respectable persons, witnesses of the 
trial, maintain the full justice of the 
sentence, though my own impression 
of the unhappy man's having fallen a 
victim to popular delusion continued 
unchanged. I might here again refer 
to the columns of this Magazine, but, 
in fact, scarcely can any of Lord 
Brougham's multitudinous aberra- 
tions be cited which will not be en- 
countered by an anticipated correction 
In this journal. See in the number 
for December 1838, page 596, and in 
that for November 1839, p. 498, and a 
special article in that for December 
1842, on his lordship's "Political 
Philosophy," with numerous occasional 
indications of incidental errines ; but 
his lordship's carelessueps of inquiry 
or assertion is, in truth, most glaring, 
while in daily increase, as he continues 
to write on subjects not within the 
sphere of his personal observation, such 
as his sketches of Britishcontoniporary 
statesmen, which are always replete 
with instruction and entertainment. 

But of all the strange and anomalous 
views of Lord Brougham, his con- 
struction of blasphemy in the work 
before us, and removal of the impu- 
tation from Voltaire, must appear most 
flagrant. Without, however, quoting 
his words, for the sophism which they 
convey has occupied considerable room 
in his volume, we may oppose to him 
Blackstone's distinct contradiction of 
the interpretation. " The fourth species 
of offences," states that author (book iv. 
chap. 4), " more immediately against 
God and religion, is that of blasphemy 
against the Almighty, by denying 
his being or providence, or by con- 
tumelious reproaches of our Saviour 
Christ. Whither also may be referred 
all profane scoffing at the Holy Scrip- 
ture, or exposing it to contempt and 
ridicule." Now the slightest acauaint- 
ance with Voltaire's works will shew 
that nearly all the lucubrations of his 
oldj^e, exclusive of various attacks 
on Christianity in his younger days, 
were aimed at the subversion of the 
Christian creed, and revelation in 
general, by every engine of contumely 
and ridicule. His Faceties^ Philo- 
sophical Dictionary, &c. have hardly 
another object, wliich is pursued with 
Satanic virulence, but of which we 

forbear soiling these pages with ex- 
amples. To prove, however, that his 
warfare — ^his constant exhortation — 
'^Ecrasez I'infame," hadan unequivocal 
applicaUon to Christianity in its com- 
prehensive sphere, and was not directed 
against his native faith solely, from a 
mass of evidence I shall briefly die 
his letter of 26th June, 1765, to his 
confederate in evil, Hdvetius : — " Nous 
avons," says he, ** des livres qui d^- 
montrent la faussetc et I'horreur des 
dogmes chretiens ; mais nous aurions 
besoin d'un ouvrage qui fit voir com- 
bien la morale des vrab philosophes 
I'emporte sur celle du chnstianisme." 
And, in a letter to the Empress Catha- 
rine, the 4th April, 1771, ne earnestly 
supplicates her "d'engager Alj-Bey 
de lairo rebatir le temple de Jerusa- 
lem," with the obvious design of dis- 
proving, by visible demonstration, the 
prophejiied doom and irrevocable fall 
of tnat sacred edifice. 

Our learned lord, however, would 
gladly confine the eternal denunciation, 
"Kcrasez I'infame," in appliance to 
Voltaire's parental creed, the asserted 
corruptions of which, flashing on his 
hero's precocious mind, the noble 
biographer presents as the cause and 
psdCation of his religious infidelitv. 
" He is not to be blamed," adds his lord- 
ship, " for having begun to doubt the 
truths of Christianity, in consequence 
of his attention having originally been 
directed to the foundations of the 
system, by a view of the falsehoods 
which have been built upon those 
truths." (page 6.) On this deduction 
of source and emanating consequence 
we must, in fairness of argument, trace 
and acknowledge, from a consonance 
of result, an identity of cause ; and, if 
so, are not all the dissident per- 
suasions from the Church of Home 
equally amenable for the spiritual 
perversion of their original communi- 
cants? Must we not, therefore, in 
parity of reasoning, impute to our 
established Church, and to the other 
sections of Christianity, the religious 
delinquency of tlie Bolingbrokes, 
Shaflesburys,Chesterfields, theHobbes, 
TmdaUs, Clmbbs, Collins, Halleys, 
Humes, Gibbons, Adam Smiths, 
Paynes, Home Tookes, Carlisles, San-

His lordship overlooks, or passes 
without corresponding animadversion, 
the vile and odious devices wlucb 
Voltaire unscrupulously practised and 
recouunended to his votaries, in pro- 
pagation of his anti-Chtistian warlare. 
" Mcniez, mes amis — mentez — non pas 
timidement, non pas pour nn tempt, 
nutis bardiment et toujours." he un- 
blushingiy wrote to his friend ThiSriot, 
the 21st of October, 1736. And the 
decease of every eminent writer was 
sure to be followed by some postbu- 
mous publication attributed to him, 
however contradictory to his principle*. 
New editions, too, were printed of 
various esteemed works, such as " Pas- 
cal's Tliougkts." "Kuler's Letters," &c. 
inlerpulated with passages, in utter 
celTHngement of the object of thtoe 
asserlors of Christianitr. His niece, 
"' dame Denis, 
ill characterising 
de I'argent vous 
forcex pas de vous hair," — espr^ons 
which his lordship indulgenUy inter- 

Erets as applied to her uncle's temper, 
ut which surely bear a much more 
comprehensive construction ; as still 
more explicitly does the succeeding 
sentence, " Vous cles le dernier dea 
hommes par le cteur." 

Our learned peer, I may observCt 
has omitted Voltwre's appropriate and 
indignant reply to the Chevalier de 
Rohan-Cbabot s insolent demand as 
to who he was adcr their attercatioa 
at the bulel of the duke of Solly, " Je 
snis le premier dc mon nom, et vous le 
dernier du votre," on antithesis which, 
in his "Rome Sauvfe," he makes Cicero 
retort on Catiline ; and ^'oltaire often 
acted the part of Cicero in this pieces 
by far tlio most diicccssful of his per- 
M)nal cicliJbitions, on his own theatre. 
" Moo nom caoimeDce en moi ■. de voire

Many, very many oilier nmisslona in 
tbia biography, and some of importance i 
to the subject, I could indicate or sup- 
ply, did my prescribed bounds permit 
me ; but, on the other hand, what are 
we to think of tie ei-keepcr of the 
royal consciencu, who, in reference Vt

** The Fttcelle was b^un to armue him 
while obliged to fly from Paris in 1784, 
by the persecutions he suflfered on ac- 
count of his ^'Letters on England." 
ITlkisi truly, is a singular innocence 
of expression applied to one of the 
moBt infamous and cormptiTe pro- 
ductions of perverted talent or de- 
bauched imagmation, though his lord- 
ship had, in a previous page (42), more 
suiti^bly adverted to tnis abominable 

Stall, with your reviewer, whose 
discrinunative taste and impartiality of 
judgment, in weighing the merits and 
defects of the learned peer^s composi- 
tion, I cannot but applaud, I coraially 
agree in commendms his lordship^ 
critical remarks on Voltaire^s dramatic 
poems and minor effusions, when the 
Uitter are not licentious ; but his lord- 
ship much overrates the Henriode. 
Hayley, in his Essay on Epic Poetry, 
has not ill characterised it : 

"Thy verse displays, beneath an epic name, 
Wit's flinty spurk for Fancy's solar flame." 

Tliough praised by Lord Chesterfield 
for i^ good sense^ and exalted far 
))eTond its value by Marmontd, it is 
^pi read. Of his comedies,* they are 
utter ffulures, all ; but some of the 
traffic compositions are of high merit, 
such as Mcrope, Zaire, with one or 
two more. Napoleon, however, who, 
according to M. Thiers, in his recent 
publication on the Consulate and 
Empire, *^avait autant d'esfunt (|uc 
Yqlwure," (livrc vi.) entertained no 
advantageous opinion of the poetV 
dramatic genius. In Las Casas (Avril, 
22->i25, 1816) we read: "Racine et 
Voltaire ont fait Ics frais de ces soirees. 
Fh6ire, Athalie, qui nous dtaient lues 
par l^Empereur, ont fait nos d^iccs. 
u igoutait dcs observations et des> 
cqinmentaires, qui leur donnaicnt un 
nouveau prix. ISfahomet, au contraire, 
uM Pobjetde sa plus vive critique," &c. 
" D est etonnant," proceeded the Ex- 
Emperor, " combieu pen Voltaire sup- 
pprte la lecture. On ne croira qu*avec 
peme, qu*au moment de la rdvolution 
Voltaire eut detrone Con^eille et Ra- 
cine." Elsewhere, Napoleon says that 

* |n his Nqnit^, we find this verse of 
UVtonndii^ alliteration. 
•• Non» il n'y a rien qw Nanine n'hoaore I" 

Voltahre was '* boursonfl^ peanatorel,'* 
though he highly euWizea a particuliir 
scene of ^ Cl&ipe." i^kdComeille lived 
under the imperial swav, he would 
have been created a Pnnoe; and of 
that great poet it may not be generaUj 
known, that Charlotte Coraay, the 
patriotic Judith who rid the world of 
the monster Marat, the 17th July, 
1793, was the fifUi in descent froin 
him. On the subject of literature, we 
may also observe that Lord Brougham, 
in desi^jnating the elder, or Jean 
Baptiste Kousseau, calls him *^ a mid- 
ling writer,*" though long the ac- 
knowledged, the undisputed head of 
the lyric poets of his country, unless, 
indeed, his supremacy may now be 
contested by Beranger, amore popular, 
from the national character of his 
sones, but surely not a superior writer. 
Had his lordship confided less in his 
own, and more in the critical judgm^it 
of the French on Rousseau^s produc- 
tions, he must have expressed himself 
in very different languaj^ of him who, 
for many years, was distinguished as 
** le ^and Rousseau.** In similar de- 
preciation of first-rate powers of com- 
position, and I may truly add with 
equal incompetency of estimating the 
idiom and style of France, he has as- 
serted that, vrith the exception of his 
^ Confessions,** Jean Jacaues Rousseau 
wrote in inferior French. (Siaietmen, 
vol. ii. p. 218.) But the universal 
voice of France places the ^^ citixen 
of Geneva'* in the first line of her 
eloquent and impressive autliors ; and 
now, for nearly a century, he stands 
unmoved from this elevated rank and 
unsurpassed height of fame, however 
i^eprchcnsible in moral or political 
doctrine he may be considei^. 

At page 121, our learned peer con- 
iidentiy avers '^ that Voltaire had 
outlived aU his detractors, idl his 
quarrels ;** another proof, were it re- 
quired, of his imperfect acquaintance 
with French literature, or its con- 
tributors. Many of his adversaries, in 
fact, survived the Pairiarche^ among 
whom we may name tHe just-men- 
tioned Rousseau (J. J.), to whom he 
had applied the imseemly epithets of

I VENTURE to coiTcct an em* 
into wliich the autliorens of a lushlv 
interesting work, recently publided, 
ajjpeors to have fallen, in herprefiitory 
remarks upon a letter from ^lizabetli, 
Uuchetid of Norfolk, to her brother. 
Lord Staflbrd, forming No. 87 of the 
" Letters of B^al and lUustrioiu 
Ladies of Great Britiun." 

Mis9 Wood <ibaerves. that the date 
ol' the letter "must' bi^ posterior to 
1347, Trhen Henry StulTcrd was re- 
stored to the title ol' Lord Staflbr^," 
and ituotes an error of Ungdale, witit- 
out wholly corrcclJng it, via. tliat 
Llenry, the restored Itaron Staffoi^ 
and lady Ursula his wife, hail otdyone 
daughter, "who urterwards mairied 
Sir iViIliam Neville, of Chevey."" 

The assumption that the date of 
the letter was posterior to 1347, when 
Lord Stafford wu restored t<j hia 
baronial honours at a, peer of the 
realm, appears to be baaed yolely on 
the expression, "Lady StafTord, as 
applied by the Duchess of Norfolk to

The Barony of Stafford. 


her brother's wife. I apprehend that 
the only concliuiion as to date which 
can be drawn from this expression in, 
that the letter was not written before 
1531. In that year, the sou and 
natural heir of the attainte<l Duke of 
Buckingham, by a slight glimmering 
of roytu favour, became possessed in 
fee simple of a very small yet im- 
portant part of his ancient hereditary 
estates, which, by peculiar custom, as 
old at least as the reign of Edward 1. 
conferred on its possessor the title 
or appellation of baroiu, or lord, Tlie 
case referred to is a royal grant, tested 
15 July, 23 Ilcn. VIU. (1531),* of 
the castle and manor of Stafford, with 
all its members, &c. in these formal 
words, " Henrico Stafford Domino 
Stafford et Urnde uxori ejus et he- 
rembus sum de corporibua eorum le- 
gitHmeprocreatis;'' tneword*'D<wwiiio,** 
as a title applied to him, occurring 
^we times in tne grant. The presence 
and use of the title of lord in this 
grant, the grantee not being at the 
tune restored nor elevated to the 
dignity and privileges of a i>eer of the 
r^lm, either by Act of I*arliament or 
new creation, may be taken as evi- 
dence, th&i in the reiffu of Henry VIII. 
the crown recognized the right of the 

S[)ssessor of the castle and manor of 
tafibrd, &c. to the style and title oi' 
lord or baron, as being vested in the 
tenure of that land barony, whilst^ on 
the other hand, it conlirmed the 
principle enunciated by the law, said 
to have been passed after the battle 
of Evesham and surrender of Kenil- 
worth,t circa 1266-7, and established 
by Edward the First and his suc- 
cessors, viz. that tenure by barony 
gave no right to demand a writ of 
summons to Pairliainent, nor claim to 
the dignity, rank, and privilege of a 
peer of the reubii.t Vurthcr weight 
13 added to this i'^ iacnee from the fact 
of the title being appli<Ml to Lord 
Stafford on two other occasions. In 
the calendar to the Close Rolls of 
26 Hen. VIII. (1.>;U) is this entiy, viz. 
"Indcntura fivctuper llcnricuin domi-

armigero;** and in that of the Fat. 
RolU of 31 Hen. VIII. (1?39) p. 3, 
there is this, **Rex,9*^die Jmii, concedit 
literas patentes de Innotessimus pro 
Domino Stafford de castello et manerio 
de Cans,'* &c. 

Uiion the nuality of the tenure of 
Stafford Castle, &c. as the caput 
baronia?, I may further remark tnat 
in the reign of Edw. I. prior to the 
first regumrly constituted Parliament 
in 23 Edw. I. and before the issuing 
of the earliest special writ of summons 
to Parliament to a member of the 
Staffoi*d family (which did not take 
place till the summoning the Parlia- 
ment of 27 Edw. I.) the possessors ol* 
the castle and manor or Stafford, by 
virtue of tenure, are, in several writs 
of summons for military service, and 
in every such case, called " baro,^ or 
" le Baron de Stajfr§ Tius is a re- 
markable peculiarity, of which there 
is no other instance on record until 

22 Edw. I. when John de Greystok 
was summoned to a council as ** Baro 
de Greystok." In every case of a 
summons to Parliament from 27 Edw. I. 
down to the charter creating Ralph 
Baron of Staffonl an Earl, 25 Edw. III. 
the write to the Staffords were directed 
to them as Barons of Stafford ; and 
with the sole exception of the Grey- 
stoks the custom was peculiar to this 
family. II It is therefore probable, 
that, in conHC<|uencc of the grant of 

23 Hen. VIII. Lord Staffonl assumed, 
and his circle of relatives and friends 
applied to him, the title of Lord in 
1531, which was 16 years before his 
restoration to the dignity and privileges 
of a peer of the realm, by a patent 
creation of Baron to him and the heirs 
male of his body in 1 Edw. VI. 

Returning to the subject of the date 
of the Duchess of Norfolk's letter, — 
there are very strong reasons for con- 
cluding that it could not have been 
written in, or after 1545. In that year, 
the chief subject of the Duchess's letter, 
her youngest niece Dorothy Stafford,

who was born in 1526,' became the 
wife of William Swflbrd if and it is 
quite clear from the tone of the letter 
and ^at^cript, that her niece was not 
nuuTied at the time of the duchess's 
writing. William StaObrd, her hus- 
band, was second son of Sir Hum- 
phrey Stafford, of Blatherwick, who 
died -n Sept. 1545. He had before 
married Mitry, the sister of Queen 
Anne Boleyn, and widow of Witlitm 
Gary, esnuire of the body t« Henrv 
Vm. which Mary died 30 July, 

I343.J In 1545, the 

tiage with Dorothy Staflbrd. he was 
dubbed a knight by the Earl of Hert- 
ford, in Scotland, on 23 Sepl.§ In 
consequence of this second alliance, 
his elder brother. Sir Huinphri-y Staf- 
ford, of Blatherwick, demised to him 
the manor of Chebsey, co. 8taflbrd.|| 

In the pedigree of Stafford, in Du^- 
dale's Baronage, vol. i. p. \51. this 
match is correctly stated, vii. "Do- 
rothea, ux. Wm. Staflbrd de Chebaej 
Mil. ;" and the error respecting it at 
p. 171, quoted by Mias Wood, is in 
the Bodleian copy of the Baronage 
corrected by Dnguale'a own hand. 

Eegardinff the other daughters of 
Henry Lord Stafford, whom Dugdale 
entirely omits, the names of five, he- 
sides Dorothy, are recorded in a pe- 
digree in the Harleian CoUection,ir 
Tiz. Anne, Margaret, Elizabeth, Mary, 
and Susan. In vlncent's copies of the 
V~isitatiiMB of Stalfordshlre in 1583 
and 1614, in the Herulds' College, only 
Mary and Dorothy are mentioned, 
and the forma- as not having married.

of an original connection between the 
Sanicrit and the Hebrew, or a Ian- 
Buage of which the Hebrew is adialect^ 
I sluill proceed to show a similar, and 
vet more evident, affinity subaistinr 
between the Sanscrit and the Greek 
and Latin languMca. It is evident, 
in a subject which presents so wide a 
Geld of speculation to the philolt^cal 
student, that a cursory glance is all 
that ean be aimed at in a pxper like the 
present. And I ajn unwillmg even to 
attempt more on llie present occasion, 
not only because I have already pre- 
sumed too much on the patience of 
your readers, but because this part 
of my subject has already engaged the 
atttmtion at an individual,* who has 
brought to bear upon ibis subject a 
rare union of transcendent learning 
atid deep research, and who has 
openerl a rich mine of philoU^ical 
treasures to the liiture classical 
student. To his very masterly work 
therefore I most strenuously recom- 
meitd such of your readers as, like 
myself, are hibourers in this unfre- 
quented vineyard, in which there is 
so much unbroken ground to engage, 
and 90 rich a, promise of harvest to

It will very soon be evident to every 
philological inquirer that not many 

Ts could have elapsed atler the time 
NcKih, before u multiplication of 
languages occurred, if indeed there 
hod not been tlie more sure warrant of 
scripture itself for lliis interesting 
fact. There would be a difficulty in 
accounting for the almost total disuse 
of die pnmitive tongue, by one por- 
tion of the dcscendauts of Noah, on 
any other ground tiion the one re- 
corded in scripture itself, the specifti 
interposition of divine wisdom, in 
order to answer one great end — the 
dispersion of the human race \ and the 
moment we admit such miraculous in- 
terference (of which no sincere 
Christian can for an instant doubt) we 
have a ready solution of every dif- 
ficulty. We have no evidence to

1 SEND you a drawine (engraved 
in the accompanying Ptale) of an an- 
cient painting in Neirark church in 
this county, which fonos the only re- 
maining gronp of a Dance of Death, 
aod from ita quaintoeas and singularity 
will, I trust, be acceptable to your an- 
tiquarian Teoders. The painting is 
upon a atone screen in the choir, and 
In order to explain it« situation more 
clearly I way De alloncd to point out 
the arrangement of that part of the in uiu oance, i 
chorch. which still preserves its ori^- rich man bos 
nal order. The centre divisiuu, or pleasures and 


one hand a flower and wilh the other 
pointing to the grave bencatli, together 
with its ghastly grin, and tlie solemn 
measure of the ghostly dance, is veiy 
sijTnificnnt, while the earnest thougfat- 
fiS countenance of the gaJly dressed 
figure, whose hand mechanically rests 
on the contents of the purse at Ua 
girdle, coupled to the apparent un- 
of his l^s joining

markable fact connected with our 
Lord's crucifixion, recorded by Mot-

hyssop, and the reed. Now, highly aa 
I esteem tbe caution manifested by 
your learned correspondent, and no 
less by Casaubon, — for in verbal cri- 
ticisnis on Scripture it is usually 
"satiua fir<x"i'," — yet it appears, and 
has long Bpj)eared, (e me so plain that 
no hyaimp at all was mode use of on 
that occasion, that I cannot refrain

science and the mechanical arts in the

extraordinary that the proportions in 
which they are formed hnye not

perhaps interest some of your readers 
to point out, that in the measure- 
ment* eiven by Belzoni of the Mcond 
pyramid of Ghizeh, ■ eeries of pro-

ezpreaiible in terms of the simplest 

lly these meaaurements it appears 
that the perpendicular altitude, the 
inclined plane of the sides, and the 
length of tlie base of this pjTamid are 
proportioned to one another, as the 
numbers 4, 5, and 6 ; and if the base 
l>e divided into two eifual parts, the 
prrajnid will appear tti be furmed of

Tlie liut of these nmuberi is altereil

Bides are correctly measureil the third 
must be as here stated, by the 47tli 
problem of the first Book ofEucliil, in 
Arder that the square of the hypothe- 
neiiae may equal the squares of the 
two sides. In taking these measure* 
raenti, however, the only point of dif- 
(ioulty would occur in the side of the 
pyramid, which by its irregalar surface, 
and the imperfect state of its apex, 
would absolutely negative anj correct 
adjustment of the measunne line. 
In the iDea^urc of the altitude and 
base, on the contrary, Belzoni may 
be lruit«d implicitly, lie was Just at 
the height of his practice, and the

To Edwibd JisSE, Esq. the following Sketches, written at his request, and 

intended for his forthcoming volume, are inscribed bj bis faithful fKend nud 

Krvuit, The Acthob. 

Scathed hj the lightning's bolt, the wintery storm, 

A giant brotherhood, ye stand sublime; 
Like some huge fortress each majestic form 

Still frowns defiance to the power of lime- 
Cloud after cloud the storms of war have roH'd, 
Since je your countless years of long descent have told. 

Say, for ye saw brave UaroM's bowmen yield, 
Ve heard (he Normans' princely trumpet blow ; 

And ye beheld, upon tbat later Geld, 

Red with her rival's blood, the Rose of Snow ; 

And ye too saw, from Chalgrove's hills of flame, 

When to your ehelt'ring arms the wounded soldier came. 

Can ye foi^t when by yon thicket green, 

A troop of scatler'd horsemen cross'd the plain. 

And in the midst a statelier form was seen, — 
A snow-white charger yielded to his rein ; 

One backward look on Nasebj'a field he cast. 

And then, with anxious flight and speed redoubled, pass'd. 1 

But far away these shades have fied, and now — 
Sweet change ! the song of summer birds is thine ; 

Peace bangs her garlands on each aged bough, 
And bright o'er thee the dews of morning shine ; 

Earth brings with graleliil hand her tribute meet, — 

Wild flowers and colour'd weeds to bloom around thy feet. 

Here may, unmark'd, the wandering poet muse, 
Through these green lawns the lady's palfrey glide. 

Nor here the pensive nightingale refuse 
Her sweetest richest song at eventide. 

The wild deer bounds at will from glade to glade, 

Or stretch'd in mossy fern his aniler'd brow is laid.

The imitation of Bishop Hall was a work of difficulty, but the author has 
successfully gone through it : —

If he's an inch he's six feet and a span ! 

His is no sordid dress, his vestments teU,

But for that wreath of straw — ^he gave Heaven's crown 1 

Meaning the world to over-reach with wit, 

Himself he o*er-reach'd too, as one of it, &c. 

Ralei^h*8 lines are good, and the second sonnet of Shakspere. Richard 
Johnson s ballad is an ezcdlent imitation of the style of the Crowned Garland 
of Roses, &C. The turn towards the end of Drayton*s lines is very happy : —

We mimt oniit "The Exchange in ila IIunioDra," hj Ben Joqmih, sa loo long

48 Retrospective Review. [July, 

as b the '' SouFs Voyage ** of that admirable Doem *' The Soul^s Errand,** the 
author of which \b still uncertain, it having oeen found under the names of 
Raleigh, and Sjlvester, and others, with singular varieties and additions. 

lliere are two sonnets, the author J. M. (John Mlton), but these we do not 
reckon among the most successful. Dryden we like much better, especially 
the concludi^ lines : 

HeaTen, that bestows the happiest gifts on men 

In happiest time, has blest us now with Wren ; 

By whom our City ihall be stodded through 

With Fane9, like stars, God's worship to renew : 

In whose broad Streets shall rise the stately dome, 

Till London streteh beyond the bounds of Rome. 

Oar Age beholds Vitruvius once more jomM 

With great Augustus to adorn mankind : 

Then, Royal Sirk, revive the Imperial day. 

And lbavs in Marblk what tou found in Clay I 


This clever and agreeable volume ends with *' The Author*s Apology for his 
Book,** attempted in the manner of J. B. (John Bunyan), from wnich we make 
this Our latest extract : 

Whenas the late Exchange, like its old Sire, 
Near seven years since went to the ground in Fire ; 
He whom the honour*d charge did then obtain 
To raise another stately Mart again, 
Had been long since the Friend esteem'd of him 
Who did these Oopiee from Old Picturet limn. 
Both in the name of London* $ sons did glory. 
Both, too, well knew and loved her ancient Story ; 
Then, when 'twas time to shew his goodly scene, 
And welcome to the Excranob another Quben ; 
That such an honour'd day and rare occasion 
Should not pass by without some gratulation ; 
It seem'd not an unfit nor ill device 
To hang this GARLAND on his EDIFICE, 
As showing how the Exchange's History run, 
And gathering up past glories into one. 
Wherefore these Verses were in black and white 
Imprinted, some like-minded to delight, &.c. 

And here we take our leave of a production of genius, certainly as clever 
and as successfully executed as any of the kind within the compass of our recol- 

Ignoto, we have read your book ; 

CAam^/ion-like yon change your hue ; 
For wheresoe'er on it we look, 

Instant it shifts its magic view. 

Proteue you are of poesy ; 

Colour and shape you take at will : 
But, unlike him in history, 

You ne'er assume a form of ill. 

Could those old poets now revive. 

And read what in their name you've said. 
They'd all exclaim, that ** when alive 

They never wrote so well as dead/* 

Like as the structure that you praise 

Exceedeth what has pasMd away. 
So doth the lofty verse you raise 

Surpass the strains of older day.

50 RtviEW. ^Wnf^V% Biogf^kia Briianmka LUeraria. [July, 

thai in this ob«ciire aee, and widi 
sodi fcanij materials for use, Mr. 
Wright has giren 05 an account of no 
lefli than one hundred and fifij writers 
between the two above-mentioned, we 
maj conceive the knowledge and in- 
duitry with which his valaable and 
cortous biography is composed. Amof^ 
these, of course, to the general reader 
and even to persons wfA informed as 
to the authors of the histonr and lite- 
rature of this period, most of the names 
mentioned will be but names,, sounds 
bringing with them no associations of 
acquaintance with the person; but 
every name that can be received is 
valuable, as forming a link in the great 
historic chain, and we cannot but 
admire the research, and applaud the 
success, with which this learned and 
laboriouswork has been achieved. And 
now let us draw off the clouds and 
mists of age from a star or two as we 
pass along. Crodfrey of Winchester^ mho 
died 1 107, was the first and best of the 
Anglo-Norman writers of Latin verse. 
He is sold to approach nearly to the 
poetry of Martial, who was his model. 
CanKien printed some of his epigrams 
in his Remains. We give one : 

Ptttca ntilia molds inutilibas prKponenda. 

Psttca Titas pretiosa dabat, sed vilis plora ; 
Ut meliora hsbeam, paocadet, oro,Titiis. 

The name of Anaelm is the first 
great name we meet (1033-1109), and 
xhi^ bio^phy is highly interesting. 
Mr. Wright thus suras up the character 
of this preUte, who held the see of 
Canterbury for sixteen years. 

"Anselm was equal to Lanfranc in 
learning, and far exceeded him in piety. 
In his private life he was modest, humble, 
and sober in the extreme. He was obstinate 
only in defending the interests of the 
Chorch of Rome, and, however we may 
judge the claims themselves, we must 
acknowledge that he supported them from 
conscientious motives. Reading and con- 
templation were the favourite occupations 
of his life, and even the time required for 
his meals, which were extremely firugal, 
he employed in discussing philosophical 
and^ theological questions. By his rare 
genius he did much towards bringing 
metaphysics into repute. He laid the 
foundation of a new school of theology, 
which was free from the servile character 
of tiie older writers, who did little more 
than collect together a heap of authorities 
on tiis subjects which they treated. The 

Monologinm and ^ Proslogmm are adU 
mirable spedmens of abstract resaoang. 
His reading was exteasive, and his style 
is dear and vigorous,'* &c. 

AthdartL, of Bath (1110-1120), ap- 
pears to have been one of the men most 
richly endowed with talent and learn- 
ing of those periods. Mr. Wright 
nays, ^ his is the greatest name in 
English science before Robert Grosse- 
tcte and Roger Bacon. He travelled 
to Italy, Greece, and Asia Minor, and 
probably studied among the Arabs of 
the East, and was absent in his pursuit 
of learning for seven years. His ce- 
lebrity was great in afler times, and 
in the thirteenth century Vincent of 
Beauvais calls him ^* Fhilosophus An- 
glorum." We next meet with Ordsn'ctcs 
VUaiis (1075-1143), whose works on 
ecclesiastical history are among the 
mast valuable of those old ones we 
possess, though wanting in system and 
sometimes inaccurate in dates. Turold^ 
who lived in the time of Stephen, is the 
author of the earliest known romance 
in the Anglo-Norman language, the 
^* Chanson de Roland," describing the 
<liaastrous battle of Roncevaux. His 
verse is of a very peculiar structure, 
in which the final rhyme rests on the 
vowels^ independent of the consonants. 
Mr. Wright has quoted a passage from 
the death of Roland, and he says there 
are many passages possessing pathetic 
traits of considerable beauty in the 
poem. The only original MS. exists 
m the Bodleian library, from which 
M. Michel printed lis edition in 

William of Malmesbury is a name 
better known than any of the pre- 
ceding ; and he was one of the most 
remarkable writers of the twelfth 

*' He was the first English writer, qfter 
Bedif who attempted successfully to raise 
history above the dry and undigested de- 
tails of a chronicle. He boasts, and not 
without reason, of his industry in collect- 
ing materials. We cannot discover that 
he used any written authorities for the 
earlier portion of his history except such 
as are well known; but he lived at a 
period when a vast number of valuable 
traditions and legends of the Saxon times 
stiU existed, and he fortunately had the 
taste to collect many of them and preserve 
them in his work. On this account, near/

much of his time in literary parsiiita 
(p. 291). The next name, that of 
tValtfr Mapet, is far belter known, 
indeed, Mr, Wright says, be was one 
of the most remarkable of the lilcrar? 
men at the court of Henry the Second. 
There ia a very judicious and careful 
account ofhis works, with thmr merita 
and defects, at pp. 29H, 299. He was 
a writer in An^o-Nomian as well bs 
Latin, and to lum we are indebted for 
u large portion of the cycle of tbe 
romances of the Round Table in their 
earliest Ibrm. His work, entitled " De 
Nugis Curialium," is now in the press 
for tbe Camden Society, which baa al< 
ready printed B volume of the Latin 
Poetry cominonly attributed to him. 

Many years ago we remeiabw the 
following lines became very popular, 
being quoted in the notes to the Pur- 
suits ot Literature ; — 
Meum eit propositam in tabemi morl, 
Vipum lit appoainim morientia ori, 
Ut dtcant mm TCneri&t angelonim <:hori, 
' Deui sit propitiiu hnic potatori.' 
From these he has been called " the 
jovial archdeacon," "the jVuocreon of 
his age," but this is all n mistake ; tbe 
words are a mock confession in a poem 
culled Confcssio Golia-, and the aathor, 
Mr. Wright tells us, was" a leamod and 
eleeant scholar, a man of good sense. 
higb character, and strict morality." 
Of Bichttrd CanrdeLion Mr. Wright 
observes that " it is difficult to decide 
whetiicr as a poet he ought to be 
claased cjiclusively with the troiAadoiirf 
or with the trotnitTtii." The poet who 
uppcurs under the name of Tkonuu (p. 
340) was author of two of the most 
reioarkablc monumentB of our early 
literature, the romance of Horn and 
that of Tristan. Of this latter poem, 
no Ei^lish metrical translation was 
luitdc ni the b^inning of the 14th 
century, and which was published by

that in diis were contained many par-

maj be called the German portion of 
Anglo-Saxon historj, not elsewhere 
to be found in a condensed form, as 
well aij muc|i other infonuaUou, which 
the author's pursuits in the field of old 
Teutonic literature hod enabled him 
to introduce almost as matter of course, 
at a time when that field was a sort of 
lerra incognita to most lovers of historic 
literiitiire in England." Ue informs us

rities, he was unable to rusist the 
temptation thug thrown in his way to 
test and enlarge the text of Dr. livp- 
penbciv'a hbtorj, — in short, lo re- 
sume the work. 

Of tbe advantages possessed bj tha 
translation over uic original, we can 
judge from the following pussuge of the

Amid so much interesting matliir it 
in difficult to select any points for par- 
ticular notice, though, as being new 
to the majority of reoders, we would 
direct atteulion to the following heads : 
the Clironoli^, the Runes, and the 
National Tramtions of the Saxons be- 
fore their migration to Britain; also 
the valuable account-i of the acverul

viz. Saxons, Angles, Jules, &c. 

The mythic interpretation of the 
storj of Ilengist ond Horsa, fo gene- 
rally adopted by continental »i:holars, 
Mr. Thorpe seems totally to discard : 
tbongh our limits will admit only of a 
reference to his note, vol. i. p. 97, and 
to his extracts from BcowuUj Sec. nt

ings of fiftet^ of our euiinent diviues 
ol that period, including- the great 
names of Taylor, Hooke, Barrow, 
t'iiher, Bramhall, Bull, and Ham- 
mond. The volume contains more 
lliuu 600 pages, aud is a rich re- 
[lository of uontroversial divinity. The 
very copiousness of it, however, seems 
almost to preclude tbe posubility of 
making extracts with advantage; the 
subjects being treated of in loi^ con- 
tinuous arguments, and abounding in 
references and ((uotation:-. But we 
will make une frotn an author whose 
name b less generally known than 
those above mentioned, and whose 
force and radness of style has much 
nleased uj. Prom '■The Way lo the 
True Church," by Dr. Jolm WTiite,

than one extract, and theuce we take 
our specimen. Upon Isaiah's account

TIIE Brat work concists of papers 
read before the Soi^iety, the &at of 
which Is on Ihe Church of Si. Mary 
As&ury. CheMn. -By IhtRn. PhUip 
JVeenmti, ilf.vl. />«"«' nnrf TM-r of 
St. Ptier'i Callegf. 

This is a descriptioa of a church with 
nil unusual anil remarkable groiuid 
plan, the arrangement of whidi in- 
volves the whole question of orienta- 
tion, and at ihe mine time forms aguide 
lo the elucidation of other perplexing 
plans. The object of the paper is tii 
account upun eonie principle for the 
anomalieK apparent in the Htructure, 
which appear at first sight caprieiotig. 
The author does this by showing that 
Ibe whole waa the effect of a very ex- 
lensive alteration. The plan now con- 
sistd of a nave, with aisles irrtyularly 
dispose and a tower attached to the 
north Hiale. It b demonstrated aatis- 
factorily that the north uslc, with iu 
lower and ciiapel, waa the nave and 
chancel of the original church; that 
subsequent additions of a new nave, 
chancel, and south lualc, together 
with on alteration in the dedication, 
led, from the principle of orientation, 
t*) a fresh point of the compass in the 
new chancel, differing from that of the 
older one ; and these alterations have 
consequently given a decree of irre- 
1,'itlarity to the plan, which are only to 
be accounted for satisfactorily upon the 
author's theory ; and it is just to say 
that he adduces sufficient internal 
evidence in the structure to justifir 
his conclusions. The student of churdi 
architecture who finds any irrfS"" 
larity in a pkn— and he will fre- 

Snently do so — will probably solve any 
iffieuliy which may arise by analywog 
!he structure with the same care as JUr.

TlIK author has taken coobideraUe 
pains to produce an historical account 
of every description of architecture 
used for sacred purposes, conunencing 
fi-om the eurliegl notices of the pillw 
slone in sacml writ, and ending with 
the finished cathedral of coroiiaratively 
modern timeii. 

The first portion of the woil is 
dedicated to the history of sacred 
architecture ; the second to exetnplan 
of the several styles which prevailed 
at various epochs in the history of 
the world, and existed in different 
countries modified by dimale, by 
local circumstances, and by difference 
of religion. The author has shewn 
himself to be alive to the beauties and 
merits of the Gothic or pointed style, 
and leclingly deplores (he i«iiiequence> 
which the excises of lauatictam or the 
fancies of inttovators have entiuled on 
our ancieal ecclcsisstical structom, 
and what has operated even more 
seriously than both these causes to 
destroy the purest specimens of our 
□alional aichitecturc, — the [Kwvtlencc 
of a culpeblen(;glect of their preserva-

thedral church of Norwich. If the 
tpira it in the itate described by Mr. 
Brown, itn fall, which seems to be 
ineritAblc, will level a large portion of 
one of the noblest of our cathedrals to 
the ground, and reduce Norwich to 
the state of Hereford. The following 
are the words of Mr. Brown, and they 
call imperatively upon the Dean and 
Chapter to take immediate steps to 
avert the impending danger. 

" The spire is in a very decayed and 
precarioos state, bulged in several places, 
and hooped together with an iron band- 
age; to me its existence appeared most 
} precarious, and 1 sincerely nope that its 
Ul, which cannot now be far diatanit may 
not take place daring the celebration of 
Divine Service." p. 163. 

Till! second |>art of the work, which 
consists of spocimens of the various 
Ntyles, is not so satiKfactory as we could 
doiin;. One (*ngraving shews a pe)*- 
spectivo view of Dabylon when in- 
vaded by Cyrus, and another a re- 
storation of Solonion*8 Temple in tk<; 
Soanean style, both of which arc use- 
less in an architectural point of view. 
The Pantheon in Mr. Brown's re- 
storation retains the bell towers, and 
the majority of the examples of church 
architecture are rather designs of the 
author's invention tlian representa- 
tions of ancient examples. Tlie plate 
entitled ** Elevation of u Constantino 
Basilican Churcli at Rome," is one of 
thcsedesigns ; it nhewsa meeting-hou»e 
looking structiu'c without a cortile; the 

Slan ajn>cnded to it, being that of 8. 
laria Maffgion^ gives u fictitiom cha- 
racter to tne elevation. Tlie section ot' 
the structure shews an imitation of a 
Rasilictt with single aislt^s, and is placed 
al)ove tt plan of St. Paul's at Komc, 
having double aisles, [t would have 
betm iimcli bett(>r to have given the 
actual elevations to tlie plans, ns both 
are rendered luteless by tliis practice. 
The section of St. Sofmia's cliurch at 
Constantinople is placed above a per- 
spective view of a mosipie, certainly 
not the* same edifice, and one which 
probably was a mos<]ue fVom the be- 

The anther's ideas of Saxon c>hun^hes 
are perfectly original : they are ivpre- 
sentod very much like what a tempo- 
rary wooden church of the present aay 
i . I be expected to exlubit. Tliefirst 

design is of timber framing, the in- 
terstices filled in with rubble or plas- 
ter, like the buildings of Elizabetti or 
James's days, having an Italian totwer, 
and appearing from the plan to liave 
a pulpit and desks in front of the 
altar. The second design seems to 
have been formed upon the model of 
Grreenstead church, with the addition 
of a proprietary-chapel tower; and 
both designs are constructed <m the 
erroneous conclusion drawn from 
Greenstead, that the Saxon churdies 
were universally of wood. In con- 
tradiction to the authenticity of his 
design the author states that in tlie 
reign of King Alfred the Saxon 
churches became improved and built 
of stone, and refers to Worth church, 
Sussex, OS a specimen; and further, 
that in the reign of Athelstane the 
windows in some instances had tri- 
angular heads, the doors semicircular ; 
and the church consisted of a nave 
and chancel, with a tower at the west 
end, generally round, built with flints 
and gi*outed rubble moso^y, roug^ 

Eltt8tere<l on the outside. Tne authm' 
as not stated his authority for dis- 
criminating so nicely between the 
characteristics of Saxon architecture of 
the time of Alfred and that of Athel- 
stane : his conclusion only serves to 
whew how easily conjectures nuiy be ex- 
alted into facts. The Norman and suc- 
cessive styles are similarly illustrated 
by plates, the majority of which are 
iileal compositions formed on modem 
notions of church building, a grand 
and leailing feature in them being the 
grouping together thepidpit and desks 
in the front of the altar. 

A class of buildings, never very ec- 
clesiastical in their design, which now 
may almost be i*egardcd as of a past 
age, viz. episcopal Ti. e. proprietaiy) 
chapelH, nre especially illustrated by 
Mr. Brown. One is hexagonal, two of 
the angles projecting in the middle of 
the flanks ; the structure has Alhamra 
windows and a R^nmt's-park Greek 
tower. These modem desi^s are, 
moreover, mixed up with sections and 
views of genuine structures of an- 
tiquity, to which they undesignedly 
net as foils. If the author had given 
actual views and measurements of 
ancient churches as examples, he 
would have produced a book of far 
greater yalue to bis readers.

devctopenieot of onr rct^neriCive life ; 
Slid oat only so, but that a false and 
shallow system of tliulogy has grown 
up and thrust ilawn Ibis high douiriae 
from its place. A prevalent notion in 
these UlcT times is, iliat the docltiue of 
baptismal regeneration in tuperstitioui and 
delnsive ; that it lends to deadness, 
itorldliness, and onspiiitualily ; that the 
Christian life of those ivho have been re- 
ligious from cbitdhood is geneTally tame, 
raid, and formal ; that true Christian 
]>erfection is to be found in penitents, and 
those who ore converted late in life ; thst 
piperience of itin and guilt is tbe slimnlus 
of personal reaponsibilicy and tbe very life 
nf the conscienoe ; anil that the fervour,

is the true perfection of the Christian

Review.^ Verm for ffofy Seaion*. 


Verses /or Holy Seasons^ ^. Edited 
by W. F. Hook, D,D, 
IT appeal's from the preface that 
these hjmns were writteu by a ladj 
resident in Ireland, " with a view of 
adapting the principle observed in ^e 
Christian year to tho capacities of the 
young and uneducated/ The volume 
therefore, it is said, may 1)e considered 
"as a Christian year for children.** 
Now, what we have to say is this — that, 
whoever this lady is who is the author 
of the poetry, she has shown very con- 
siderable poetical powers, regulated 
and improved by very correct taste. 
We could hardly poiut out a similar 
volume of higher merits. Much ori- 
ginality of thought the nature of the 
subject does not admit, and all florid 
ornaments and luxuriance of imagery 
are also out of place ; but the versifi- 
cation is masculine, harmonious, and 
pleasing, and the language so correct 
and good as to show a taste cultivated 
in the best schools of our older poetry. 
Our sele<^tions are always, when the 
subject-matter is so worthy of them, 
by the nature of our work, far more 
limited than we could wish and than 
would do full justice to the author. Li 
this case it is difficult, if we make any 
choice, to sa^ we could not have made 
another (juite as good; but, fortu- 
nately, it IS impossible to make a bad 
one through any defective judgment 
of our own. ^Ve take, therefore, — 


"Abraham is dead, and the prophets/ 
&c. — St. John, viii. 52. 

No longer dwells on Mamre's plain 
The faithful father loT'd of God, 

Nor sees the setting sunbeam stain 
With purple hues Moriah's sod. 

From Horeb's height, from Carmers hill, 
The prophets of the Lord are fled ; 

By Jordan's wave and Cherith*s rUl 
Their voice is silent — are they dead ? 

Does Moses lie 'mid Moab's stones ? 

Does old Machpelah's cavern lone 
Hold yet the patriarch's mould'ring bones ? 

And whither is Elijah gone ? 

We cannot answer. Elarth with earth 
Long since has mingled in deoay ; 

But they who know a second birth, 
Wc know they live — shall live for aye. 

The dust that lies beneath our tread 
Shall stir again the valley's clod, 

And now Christ's ransom'd are not dead : 
They live to us— they live to Ood. 

He trinmph'd o'er all-oonqneriiig deatii 
Who was, ere Abraham, throned on 
And, thougli we yield this mortal breath. 
Who keeps His words shall never die. 


*' Balaam saw that it pleased the Lord 
to bless Israel." (p. 65,) 

The seer stood by his seven shrines ; 

He look*d from Peer's mountain grey ; 
All Israel's tents, like silver lines, 

Beneath him in the valley lay. 

He saw Jeahimen's breeze unfold 
Their twelve broad burners waving free ; 

And Moab's monarch showed his gold. 
And said, " Oh ! Balaam, carse them 

A mightier impulse fills his breast— 
A deeper power impels his thought. 

'' How can I cnrse whom God has bleit ? 
Or speak but what the Lord has taught ? 

Like fertile valleys water'd wide ; 

Like cedar trees in fragrant row ; 
Like gardens by the river side. 

Thy goodly tents, oh ! Israel, show. 

Thy glorious tide shall still flow on ; 

Thy seed by maoy waves shall lie ; 
When Agag's past, when Edom*s gone, 

Thy throne shall be exalted high. 

From fertile Egypt's cloudless plain 
Through rolling seas God made thy path. 

Thy haughty foes opposed in vain ; 
He slew the nations in his wrath. 

Like lion in the wilderness 

That croucheth down thy strength shall 
And blessed shall be they who bless, 

And cursed he who curaeth thee.*' 
So spake of old the prophet aire, 

Mov'd by that impulse none can quell. 
When, spite of lust and strong desire, 

He bless'd God's favour'd Israel. 

And thus Christ's Church is ever blest, 
And thus his power still guards his 

Though oft by cruel scorn oppreas'd, 
Till hearts are sad and courage faints. 

The power that pour'd by Piagah'a itcme 
Blessing for curses,— i^sod for ill,— 

That mighty power still keeps his own ; 
Grod's chosen sons are blessed still. 

Perhaps we may be a little over- 
critical, — ^perhaps we mavbe wrong, — 
but we think the similitude used in 
the line, 

AU Israel's tents, Uke siher Maes, 
is hardly correct. It would be just if 
applied to England's t^ts; but ire

believe, originally came from ftie lips

03 this is, it would be unrcjisoDable (o 
object to the expression "classic iatx •" 
y«t "classic" 19 a word that bus be- 
come a little lowered and tarnished 
bj too promiscuoos use, and there is 
nothing in iheword to which it is joined 
to elerute it ; therefore we sfaoidd snj 
that "clitssic (ace "was a phrase rather 
below that fine and finished stjlc of 
expression which belongs to the whole 
of this Tcrj elegant production ; and 
our very remark shows that we do not 
like evcu a speck upon the surface of 
alnboster. ¥he suialler poems are not 
onlj pleasing for their poetical merit, 
but for their feeling and sentiment; 
and had we room nc should quote 
from them, and particularlj from that

Another work by the same author 
has reached us, called Renuiria on 
Art, utilA reference lo Ike Sta/Hei of 
the University, well worthy the at- 
tention of the enlightened Society to 
whom it is addrc^aciT Tins little work, 
in the shape of a letter to a friend, 
exhibitti an unusual acquaintiuice with 
the invaluable treasures of ancient 
art, and a critical estimation of their 
excellences. The arguments by which 
Mr. Burgon shows the intimate alli- 
ance existing between all the works 

IJcularly those which, b dignity, in 
beauty, and in genius, rank next to 
the poetic, are forcibly stated, and 
learnedly and elegantly illustrated. In 
our opinion a museum of sculpture, 
and the endowment of a professorship 
of ancient art, would be the best and 
proper means of supplying the present 
defect in the system of clossind edu- 
cation; and this reminds us of what 
we think, in the present enlightened 
age, is a, curious fact, that though 
some of our architects, as Messrs. 
Wilkes and Cockcrell, ore well con- 
Tersant with the remains of ancient lile- 
ratiire, not quc of our English sculptors 
living is a tekolarl nor is there one 
who can call the genius of Sojihocles

of Ffatdias or Praxiteles.

painted by Mr. Robert Burford, with Ihe 
easistance of Mr. U. C. Selons, which hu 
been opened to the public in Leicester- 
square, and which is equally remarkable 
for its merit and its subject. It ]>reseDtB 
an animated picture of the great battle of 
Sohrnon, with all tbe peculiariliea of scene 
and circunislance that marked this Water- 
loo of the Puujaub, very beautifully and 
spiritedly detailed. With out ciondiog 
the canvasB too much, we have a furinble 
idea at the magnitude and terrora of the 
combat- The great variety of costnmes 
has enabled tbe artists to give pictorial 
effect, to obtain dicenity of colour and 
contrast. The peculiarity of the weapona, 
helmets, and armour of tfae Asiatic troops 
has been a great resource, and tbe horaea 
are remarkably well drawn and well painted. 
Tbe figures, ne nnderstUDd, haie been de- 
signed by Mr. Selous. Tbescenery isnot 
remarkable, the surrounding country being 
level for many miles ; but the line of the 
Sutlq, and the fatal struggles of Ihe re- 
treating array to repass ft by tbe broken

b« seen in various parts oF Europe, on 
monnmenla of an equally early date. 
Among the many fine MSS. exhibited, 
particular attention was direcCed to Mr. 
Holford's valuable collection of Italian 
illuminations, formerly ID the possession 
of Mr. Yonn« Oltlcy, and a beautiful MS. 
of the twelfth century, belonging to tbe 
same gentleman, containing thirty -two 
curious paintings representing the life, 
martyrdom, and miracles of St. Edmund. 
Mr. Hodgkinson eihibilei a MS. of 
Oiigen, of tbe twelfth century, with 
initial letters greatly resembling tbe Saion 
style of design. Altogether this subject 
eicilcd much interest, and the Cable was 
surrounded with members examining the 
various MSS. for some time after the 
President had quitted the chair. 

Mag \. The subject for discnsiion was 
" PicCiIe Manufactures i the Earthenware, 
Porcelain, &c., of all periods.'' Amongst 
the objects of interest exhibited, was one 
collection particularly rich and curious. 
This was an assemblage of SCaJTonbihire 
pottery, arwient and modem, selected 
from an extensive collection made by Mr. 
Enoch Wood, a contemporary of Wedg- 
wood ; and from the woriis of Messrs. 
Minton. The following were some of the 
articles: — A butter pot, an mentioned in 
Dr. Plofs " History of Staffordshire,"

its name from the butler pot. Tbe " tyg,"

it bai beou lite great difficulty of the

veaeradon, and emplo;eil for «u)tFrstilious 
purpose* OS well 01 for baser uses in ordi- 
nary life : — but the hiitory of such objects 
belonged rather to an eauyon therdigioDof 
a race, thou to on inquiry like the present. 
Mr. Hawkins. Mr. Sbaw, and other 
gentlemen took part in a discussion which 
AjUowed Mr. Birch's observatiuns. Among 
the remarkable objects on the table, may 
be nuliceit the very large Etruscan fibnU 
aniJ necklace of gold in the collection 
of Mr. Blayds. — and the ponderous gold 
armlets and litier fibulie from the Mnaenm

been formed st a pubhc meeting held at

tha f^mbridge Antiquarian Society ac- 
conpanieil the Professor of Botany (Hen- 
ilcni) snil Ua clais to Bottiiham, wbere 
pcnniMioa had been obtained to eiamine 
into fenral barrons. The first barrow 
lint »Bi (^>fMd was sitaale on the south 
d^e of Ailingloa Hill. Nothing of any 

value was here discovered, the barrow 
hJtring been opened by Mr. Leonard 
Jcnyus 15 years since. The second bar- 
row was aitnate in Swaffham Butbeck, 
near to Hare Park. Tlie land belongs to 
Downing college, and appears part oF the 
same line of hill on which Ihe firct lumalna 
it raited ; but, ithilst the latter is solitary, 
the present one is aurrounded by several 
others at no great distance. The land 
waa brought under cultiiation in 1S01, 
previous to which it waa part of a large 
cipante of primitive turf and heath, which 
covered this district inanrienttdmes. The 
whole was earth work — circomferenca 999 
feet : diameter somewhere between BO and 
90 feet. Here they were more aaccc!«fiiL 
At a depth of two feet, nrites one of the 
party, " the ground became dark, miied 
with charcoal, and one well -judged cut with 
the spade exhibited that which principally 

surrounded by the drrulsr portion of 
burnt earth and charcoal, inierted uid 
inclined. It appeared From the colouring 
of the circumference of the drcte, which 
was deep red, that a small bole had been 
dug in Che earth, and charcoal and bones 
bnmt in it, the vase pbu:ed on Ihe tire 
in an inverted position, and the whole 
covered up. The inietted position of the 
urn is not uncommon. At about 10 feet 
from this spot la the line of BincavatioD, 
and half a foot lower, some more charcoal 
and burnt earth were found. Immediately 
on the opposite side of the cutting, a 
third deposit nai optumed, with little 
charcoal and earth, but inclosing many 
frigments of bones ; these were placed in 
a layer of about two feet in circumferencB, 
and three inches in depth. Tlie whole 
had the appearance of having been moved 
after the bnming, and placed in a heap 
where it was found. Among the bonea 
were several pieces of Ihe scoll, a frag- 
ment of the alveolar process, inclosing 
a tooth (that of a young person), pieces of 
the femoral clavicle, with many others, all 
apparently calcined. The digging was 
conducted to Ihe depth of H or 6 feet, 
but nothing fartherwat found. A barrow 
south oF this was opened some time back, 
and an urn, with an instrument of metal, 
Hoaeihumed. These paased into the hands 
of Ihe Isle Master of Downing college. 
Two smaller barrows eiist in a Field aboat 
one hundred yards to the south-west of 
this tfmulns ; they do not appear t* have 
been distarbed, and might afford some- 
thing interesting. They are much lower 
than the larger one, perhaps not more 
than lj or (t feet in elevation. The nm 
cill probably be deposited in the Museom 
of the Cambridge Antiquarian Society.

In the conclave of 182B, Mauro Capel. 
lari waspoeof the Cardinals most favoBted, 
and the most violently opiiosrd by what 
was termed the Aoatrian party. In the 
conrlaie of 1831 tbe Cardinal Pacca, pro.

Albani wai the he id. bad obtained during 
a previnu! ba)lot 19 votes; but at the 
last one aii or aeven latet egcaprd being 
influenced by Cardinal Albani, and Car. 
dioal Capelhiri obtained the minority. 
The Sacred College is compoted of .17 
members. He was elected Piipe on the 
2nd of February. 1)1:11, and tat on the 
poniificil throne under the name of 
Gregory XVI. 

■■ Pope Gregory filled the Pontilicat chair 
for more than fifti^o years, doring a 
periudof no ordinary intereat and diffic.ilty 
in the affairs of the Church, and in the 
relations of the Vatican with the temporal 
powers of Christendom. When the vote 
ul the Sacred College ■iimmoned Cardinal 
CapelUri to the highest office of Ibe 
Ruuiiah Church, the French Kevolution 
uf 1831) had juit inflicled a iremendoua 
blow on Ihe reclesiattical party in France, 
and tbe elder branch of tbe Boorbont had 
sunk into exile and impolency. mainly 
from its blind devotion to tbe ullra-mon- 
tane policy and the religious bigotry of its 
leading nivmbcrsand adiiters. Thronghout 
Euro|ie it seemed probable that the great 
contest of freedom Bnd of ahsololiam in 
matters of opinion and of fsitb. is well as 
of government, was about to be retiewed; 
and the convuhtions which bad paralysad 
the influence of Rome in other states 
threatened to destroy ber security at home. 
The first foreign act of the new govem- 
nienl of France was to plant tbe tricolor 
flag at Ancona. Italy quivered in her 
chains ; disturbances broke out in almoat 
every part of the Peninsula, but especially 
in the Papal States. It seemed as impoi- 
slble [u support the crumbling fabric of 
tbe temporal power of Ihe Vatican as 10

OtirvAVt,—Pope Gregory XVI. 


reign of Gregory XVI. has been spent 
upon a volcano on the eve of an eruption, 
the ancient 8yacem of Papal misgovern- 
merit has survived another Pope ; and he 
leaves his temporal powers to his cue- 
cessor, more enfeebled, more embarrassed, 
more dia^n^ced by the oppression of Rome 
and of the Lections, but nevertheless 
not wholly lifeless or overthrown. The 
promises he made for the refonn of the 
administration upon his accession remain 
unfulfilled. The natural tendencies of the 
moderate party to which he had belonged, 
and of his own amiable disposition, were 
oTcrmled by the Cardinals who exercised 
power in his name ; and his reign cannot 
escape the charge of cruelty in the re- 
pression of political offences, and of a most 
bigoted resistance to the practical improve- 
ments of the age. 

•* The reign of Gregory XVI. will, how- 
erer, be chiefly remembered for the re- 
markable activity which has pervaded the 
Roman Catholic Church in every land 
whilst he occnpied the chair of St. Peter, 
and by the great conflicts it was his lot to 
sastain with most of the great Powers of 
the world. Simple in his habits, narrow 
in his ideas, timid in his manners, inca- 
pable of civil government, the Pope 
nevertheless displayed in the affairs of the 
Church a vigour and a decision equal to 
the great emergencies which arose about 
him. He was deeply versed in all the 
lore of the Roman hierarchy ; he was 
conscientiously devoted to the mainte- 
nance of the rights of his Church and 
the performance of the duty he owed her ; 
and in this spirit of modest dignity he 
gnided the destinies of tliat mighty insti- 
tution, and governed the most complex 
lyttem of spiritual polity which has ever 
existed among men. 

*' We have already alluded to the French 
revolution, which had so recently preceded 
hit election ; but that blow was destined 
to be followed by various events of the 
deepest interest to the Roman C'hurch — 
by controversies touching the ecclesiasti- 
cal polity of that kingdom, and htriking 
at the n>ot of ecclesiastical influence in 
the education of the country, and by a 
flerce contest between the nation.'d spirit 
of the French revolution and th(* reviving 
influcnres of Christianity. The. Pope 
ultimately sacrificed the .lo'suita in France ; 
but the eminent umn who obtained that 
concession as the tvprcitentativo of King 
Louis Philippe at the Court of Rome, 
has since employed it to Ktrongthen all the 
tiea which once united the Cabinet of 
France to the Vatican. Whatever events 
may now be in store for Italy, the ascen- 
<Uncy acquired tt Rome by M. Rossi is 
*B ftOBpleioQ* omen of the lerricef he 

may render by his adopted to bis mother 

" The revolutions of Spain and Portu- 
gal, the changes of dynasty and the civil 
wars which have devastated the Ptainsala, 
shook the Roman Catholic Church hi 
those states to its foundations, plundered 
it of its wealth, and, we tmst we may add, 
purged it of some abuses and expiated 
some of its crimes. The closing years of 
the reign of Gregory XTI. witnessed a 
renewal of the relations which had sub- 
sisted for so many ages between the 
Sovereigns of the Peninsula and the 
Sovereign Pontiff ; and the government of 
the Church has once more been re-esta- 
blished in the dominions of the Most 
Catholic and the Most Faithful Queens. 
In Belgium, the Catholic cause, adapting 
itself with singular pliancy to the politiciu 
accidents of the age and to the social con- 
dition of the people, formed an alliance 
with the principles of national independ- 
ence and civil freedom. A new Sts& was 
added to the family of Europe, which owed 
its rise to the influence of an actite and 
ardent priesthood. In Ireland a similar 
spirit has animated a large portion of tiie 
Romish clergy. But, upon the whole, tiie 
policy of Gregory XVI. has not been to 
foment by spiritual infhience the intrigues 
of political agitators. During his reign 
the Court of Rome has laboured to re- 
press rather than to incite them; and 
the Pope has more than once reminded 
t]ie more zealous members of the priest- 
hood under him. that they are before all 
things the ministers of a religion of 

** When, however, the principles or dis- 
cipline of the Church of Rome have been 
invaded by the authority of temporal 
governments, or by the persecutions 
which have disgraced the reigns of some 
contemporary sovcreifjiis, Gregory XVI. 
upheld with unflinching resolution tiie 
cause of which he was the natural def^der. 
The great quarrel between the Vatican and 
the Court of Berlin, under the late Kinc 
of Pruss^ia, arising out of the suspension 
and captivity of the Archbishop of Co- 
logne, was one of those occasions which 
would have shaken all Enrope to its centre 
two or three centuries ago, and which even 
now astonished the world by a display of 
the firmness and authority with wlueh the 
influence of Rome may resist even an ab- 
solute sovereign. That contest termi- 
nated with no diminution of the claims of 
the Church, and with a great increase of 
zeal on the part of the Roman Catholic 
{)opulation of Germany. But ere lone a 
fresh cause of anxiety broke out in that 
country, in the shape of a new schism, 
more active and more fbnnidable tb B^Hik

and waa present at the battle of Cornnna. 
He afterwards served till the peace u 
Assistant Quartermaster-general of the

in IH14 became Lieut. -Colonel by brevet. 
In V'^O he went to Ireland, and served

In 1830 Colouel Sorell was appointed 
to the Consular service in Spain, from 
whence he was ordered, at the cmnmence- 
mrnt of the civd war in Portugal, to 
Oporto, and was present rather as a Po- 
litical Agent than as Consul, duriug the 
whole of llie blockade and siege of that 
city. His conduct wan considered by 
Government as giving him a claim to spe- 
cial approbatiDn. and he wa* created a 
Knight of the Royal Gnelphic Order. 
In 1834 he vitf appointed CoDsnl-general 
for the Lombardo- Venetian stales; and 
hii departure from Oporto was accompa- 
nied by the grsteful acknowledgmenta and 
regrets of alt the British residents, (who 
presented him with a very handsome ail- 
ter vase, as a testimonial of their grati- 
tude and esteem) and every class of the 
papalation over whose interests and safety 
he hod, in those days of peril and diffi- 
culty, constuitly watched. In 163a the 
Queen of Portugal created him a Knight 
CoLomander of the royal military order of 
San Bento d'Avis, which Her Majesty 
Queen Victoria was graciously pleased to 
permit him to accept. 

in 183G Sir Thomas Sorell was in.

riorated by the rapid and constant changes 
of temperature to which that seaport 
is sabject ; nor could the mineral waters, 
to which he had recourse, subdue the 
disease — congestion of blood to the heart 
and lungs. The complaint had become 
too confirmed for him to derive any bene- 
fit even from the climate of Venice, 
whither he obtained permission to trans* 
fer his residence, and where he arrived in 
Oct. 1845. At Christmas the malady 
returned with increased force, and resisted 
every effort of medical aid. His inter- 
ment took place on the 27 tb, with sudi 
military honours, rendered by the Arch- 
duke Frederick in person, and by the 
Imperial staff, as are usually paid to a 
General Officer in the Austrian service; 
his memory receiving also every distinc- 
tive mark of respect, both from the Arch- 
duke Viceroy, and from all the imperial 
military and civil authorities, as well as 
firom the English then at Venice. 

Edwaed Thomas Foley, Esq. 

March 30. At Stoke Edith Park, He- 
refordshire, aged 54, Edward Thomas 
Foley, esq. D.C.L. 

He was cousin of Lord Foley, and 
brother-in-law to the Duke of Montrose. 
He was born Dec. 21, 1791, the elder ton 
add heir of the Hon. Edward Foley, M.P. 
for CO. of Worcester 1774-1803, (second 
son of the first Lord,) by his second wife 
and cousin Eliza- Maria Foley, daughter 
and heir of John Hodgetts, of Prestwood, 
CO. Stafford, esq. He was a member of 
Brazenose college, Oxford, where the de- 
l^ee of M.A. was conferred upon him in 
1812, and afterwards that of D.C.L. 

Mr. Foley ser\'ed as sheriff for Here- 
fordshire in 1815. He was elected M.P. 
for Ludgershall in 1826-1830 and 1831 ; 
and for his native county at the general 
elections of 1832, 1835, and 1837. He 
retired from Parliament in 1841 ; the en- 
feebled state of his health rendering him 
incapable of enduring the fatigues attend- 
ant upon that honourable position. 

Mr. Foley was a consistent supporter 
of constitutional principles. He opposed 
the removal of Roman Catholic Disabili- 
ties in 1829, and the Reform BiU in 1831. 
In private life he was sincerely respected 
and beloved, as a husband, from his de- 
voted affection ; as a brother, from his 
unexampled paternal affection ; as a land- 
lord, from his great consideration; and 
as a poor man^s friend, from his unvary- 
ing benevolence. 

Mr. Foley married, Aug. 16, 1832, 
Lady Emily Graham, fourth daughter of 
James third Duke of Montrose ; and to 
)ier ladyihipt who sunrives him, without 

issue, he hat made an absolute bet|iiost gf 
his immense estates. 

His funeral took place on the 7th 
April, when bis mortal remaini were In- 
terred in the family vault in Stoke E^^ 
church-yard. It it calculated that S00(

During fifteen years he represented ib»

*• NO part of History," saj'a a writer, who himself has left us Bome ad- 
■nrable epecimpns of his skill in this branch of writing, " is more InBtmcdve 
■nd deligntfal than the lives of great and worthy men ; the shortness of 
■ttwin myites manj readprs, and there are snth little and yet remarkable 
fSMBges in them, too incoasiderable to be put in a general history of the 
we in vhich they Uved; that all people are very dtf^irous to know them. 
This makes Plutarch's Lives to be more generally read than any of all the 
Wiks which the ancient Greeks or Romnna writ," Thus tax Bbhop 
Bomet writes in his preface to the Life of Sir Matthew Hale; and then, 
•fler mentioning these circumstances, which, attending the hiography of great 
and illnitrious characters, make them belong raliicr to general than, parti- 
cnlar hittoiy, he adds, '* But the lives of private meu, though they seldom 
fntertain the reader with such a variety of passages as the others do, yet 
certainly they offer him things that are more tmitahl/, and do present 
wisdom and virtue to bim. not only in a few ideas, which is o(Wn looked 
on as a piece of the invention or fancy of the writer, but in such plain and 
funiliir instances as do both direct him better and persuade luni more ; 
ud there are not such temptations to bia« those who write them, so that 
»e may generally depend more on the truth of such relations as ore given 
In them."* 

Of Mr. Foster, whose life is now brought before our readers, il may be 
nlBcient to say, that, as a writer, he must 'be allowed to stand in the first 
Tlllk of those who in the )iresent age have been distinguished for originally 
of csnception and el^ance of language. We could without difficulty 
expms the delight we have experienced, and the benefit wc have recdved 
from repeated perusal of his " Essays ; " but it will l>e more suitable and 
more satis&ctory to show how they have been estimated by persons who 
roost be acknowledged to be competent Judges of literary merit, and who, 
thoogh differing from each other widely in moral feeling, in religious senti- 
ments, and intellectual habits and discipline, have all united in affording 
their restiraony to the high merits of these writings. Sir James Mackin- 
tosh writes from India — " I have read with the greatest admiration the 
Essays of Mr. Foster, whom perhaps you know. He is one of the most 
profound and elegant writers that Enftland has produced." The late 
Bishop Jcbb wrote to his frieud Mr. A. Knox — " 1 have beeii much etnick, 
much graiiBed, and ««t not a little a thinking by a re-penisal of Foster's 
EcMj'ft. Thai man is surety of a very peculiar mental frame." Again,— 
" I am so pleased with Foster's Essays, that 1 have coronuauoned a 
biend to buy them for me." *c Mr. Robert Hall, m a review of this 
work, has expatiated at greater length on the various powers and attain-

ments of the writer. He says, (for we must select a few words out of 
every page), '< We are highly gratified when we meet with a writer who, to 
a vein of profomid and originsJ thought, together with just views of reli- 
gion and morals, joins the talent of recommending his ideas, by the grace 
of imagination and the power of eloquence. A cast of thougnt, original 
and sublime, an unlimited command of imagery, a style varied, vigorous 
and bold, are some of the distinguishing features of these very sing a l a r 
Essays," &c.* After praise so great and discriminating, he who has been 
previously like ourselves acquainted with the work will not fail to recur to 
it with a desire like that of visiting the scenes already known, after hear- 
ing their beauties eulogized by persons of taste and judgment ; and also by 
a hope of discovering fresh excellences which have escaped us in oar pre- 
vious perusals. Such an admiration, however, of a work cannot well exist 
without a desire to become acquainted with the history of the author ; 
especially when the individual mind is so strongly stamped, as in this case, 
on every moral page, and has given its peculiar features to every verbal 
illustration. The biography itself, though well executed, has the £iult, so 
prevalent at the present time, of being too extended ; and, though there ia 
no doubt but that many, not only personal friends, but those who belong 
to the same religious party, and who are justly proud of such a minister, 
will feel through all its length a source of undiminished interest, yet when 
a book like this is printed, it is given not to a party, but to the world ; 
and if it runs into too great a length, it must be content to balance against 
the apathy or neglect of the many the admiration and attachment of the few. 
John and Anne Foster, his parents, occupied, at the time of his birth, 
a small farm-house in the parish of Halifax, near Hebdenbridge. In 
addition to the labours of the farm they devoted part of their time to 
weaving. The father is described as a strong-minded man, addicted to 
reading and meditation, and so pi^udential that he did not many till he 
wa» upwards of forty. In religion he was a Baptist. Both he and his 
wife lived to a very advanced age, though suffering much from bodily 
affliction. He died in the 88th year of his age, in 1814, and Mrs. Foster, 
surviving him about three years, died in December 1816. Their eldest 
son John was bom September 1770. He is described as a thoughtful, 
silent, and old-fashioned child. He had no juvenile associates at home ; 
his brother Thomas was four years younger than himself, and he had no 
sisters. He seems to have had much constitutional pensiveness and 
nervous irritability, of which some singular examples are given. By nature 
he was tender and humane, and he had a romantic admiration of natural 
scenery in its grandest and noblest forms. His behaviour to his parents^ 
was uniformly dutiful ; he b^an early to assist them in weaving, and till 
his 14th year, worked at spinning wool to a thi*ead by the hand- wheel ;. 
but his manipulations were not very correct, nor his workmanship satis- 
fEictory to his employer. All this time he was studying closely but 
irregularly. He would often shut himself up in a ham ror a considerable 
time, and then come out and weave for two or three hours, working like a 
borse. English literature was, of course, all that he could indulge in, but 
the old man had the ambition of higher training for him, and when he 
was only four years old would lay his hand upon his head and say, <^ this

head will one day Irani Greek." Six days after the completion of his I7th 
vear he became a member of the Baptist Church at Hebdenbridge, and he 
gave such satisfactory proofs of his abilities that he was set apart for the 
mimstieriHl office by a special religious senice. To gain classical in- 
struction he became an inmate of Brearly Hall, where Dr. Fawcett directed 
the studies of a few theoli^cal candidates. Still a part of every day was 
spent in assisting his parents at their usual employments ; during the rest 
of the time his application to study was so intense as to excite apprehensioUG 
for his health. Frequently whole nightu were spent iu i-eading and medi- 
Ution. His scholastic exerdsea were marked by great labour, and ac' 
ramplished very slowly. One very judicious method is mentioned which 
he adopted for improving liimself in composition, that was, taking paragraphs 
from (Afferent writers and tjying to remodel ihem, sentence by sentence, 
into as as many forms of expression as he possibly could. No doubt 
but this plan, so judiciously conceived, and careflilly executed, was at-

especialtv to those whose early reading is extensive aud miscellaneous. 
'■ So one," a friend remarks, " vraa better quahfied to write on decision of 
rbaracter. It was from early life the habitual characteristic of his mind ; 
he formed his purposes and then proceeded to execute them, nothing 
wavering. He was always examining everything that came within the 
range of bis observation ; neither wind nor weather, night nor day, oflered 
any obstacle ; he accomplished his purpose." He now entered the Baptisl 
college at Bristol. Dr. Caleb Evans, the president, was lately dead ; 
Bobert Hall had just removed to Cambridge, but his place was ab^ filled 
by Joseph Hughes, the founder and secretary of the British and Foreign 
Bible Sodety, aud so congenial were the minds of the tutor and pupil, that 
a friendship here began trhich ended only with life. It is supposed that 
Fo«ter possessed greater originality of thought and affluence of imagination, 
while the other was probably superior in a more exact intellectual training, 
and had attained a greater maturity of religious character and sentiment. 
Robert Hall he did not see till afterwards. He says in a letter dated 
1792 to Dr. Fawcett, "ffa/( is expected by his relatioaa in Bristol next 
month. I tfhall be quite eager to see him. The opinion which the most 
sensible here entertain of his powers leads me to think that all the accounts 
you have heard rather fall below than exa^^erate them." After leaving 
Bristol the first place in which Mr. Foster (mgaged as a preacher was 
Newcaftle-mi.Tyne, but he remained here only three months. His mode 
of life here was that of a recluse, his mental habits undisdplined, bis 
application to study fitful and desultory, and his purpose as to die specific 
employment of his future life uuflxed. He himself describes his habits as 
■ovetenlely indolent, and at the age of twenty-two he says, " I have still 
to begin to Uve," He was now invited to preach to a Baptist society 
meeting in Swift's Alley, Dublin. "A dull sanctuary, in which 1 preached 
with but htlle interest, and they heard with less." In a little time he re- 
linquished this ungrateful employment, visited Yorkshire for four months, 
and then returned to Dublin to make an unsuccessful experiment in a 
classical and mathematical school. He says. " During this second visit to 
Dublin my connection with \'iolent democrats and my share iu forming a 
society under the denomination of ' Sous of Brutus,' exposed me at one 
perioJ to the imminent danger, or at least the expectation, of chains and a 
dungeon." Of his theological 0}»ai9us at tte tun? he says, " I have dia- 

catrdcd the doctrine of eternal punithments (to thii opinkm he abiui 
adhered). I can avow uo opinion on th^ peculiar points of CalviniaBy ibr 
I have none, nor see the poesibility of forming a satig&otoiy one. I 
no fiociniani but I ami no doubt, between the orthodox and Aiian 
nor without some inclination to the latter. It is a subject for deliharalkwit 
perhaps loi^ investigation, and I feel a sincerity which aasaret me ftat the 
issue, whatever it may be, must be safe.' He returned oooe nuBe to 
Yorkshire in February 1796, where he continued till hie xemo^ to 
Chichester, where he remained about two years and a hali^ applyiqg himeelf 
with great earnestness to his ministerial duties ; but his oongrf|^oB he 
found wanting in religious feelings. Their numbers were rediused by death 
or removal, and soon afier his departure the society became esatiBet In 
1799 he left Chichester, and resided for a time with Mr. Hmhes «t 
Battersea ; and about this time he first met Miss Maria Snodie. 

In 1801 he visited for the last time his friends and relations in Yoik* 
shire. He found his father in a feeble state, though he lived maiiy yean 
after, his mother much declined, and his brother married. Not oolf had 
he no affection for the plaoe of his nativity, but he says he had an intcnae 
antipathy to it, and felt no pleasure, with the exception of a wild aoHtoij 
vale or two, in retreading the ancient vestiges. ^* Few local 
befriended the romantic feelings of my early youth ; they did sot 
attadi themselves to the place, but were enclosed within m^ymUf a&d.flaified

with Hallr— ><< I was two or three times in Hall's oompanyi aad ~

He seemed at this time as unsettled in his political opinions of patriotic 
duty, as he was unversed in metaphysical speculations ; for he says, << My 
reflexions are sometimes very serious on the question of what would he my 
iuty in the event of a French army appearing on our plains ?" Did he 
mean on the question of joining them ? He opens a view of his religious 
opinions about this time to his friend Mr. Hughes. " I hold, I believe, 
accurately the leading points of the Calvinistic faith ; as the corruption of 
human nature, the necessity of a divine power to change it, irresistible 
grace, the influence of the spirit, the doctrine of the atonement, in its most 

heroicis ittis tetatibuB, et in omnibus setatibus tales viros, imminitate natars iniigiict

Hath paid unseemly reyerence, yea and brought 
Streams clearest of the Aonian fount to wash 
Bloodstained ambition," &c. 

We possess some very learned annotations on Dr. King's Latinity in our copy of 
his Orations ; but whether they were by Mr. Bowyer the printer, or by Dr. Squire of 
Cambridge, we do not know. That the former wrote such notes, see Encyclop. Brit, 
art. " Bowyer.'* It was by Dr. Clarke't advice that they were not printed. On 
Dr. Squire, see King's Anecdotes, p. 154. These venerable Orations produced alto 
criticisms from other quarters, by Dr. Burton, and by Philelentiierus Londinensis, and in 
the Monthly Review for 1749. We could add much more on this subject, but a 
friendly voice says, EVc^c, we shall therefore only observe diat there was a Jokm Kmg 
also Public Orator of Oxford in the time of James the First, whose Latin Orations 
we possess, A.D. 1625, and we cannot refrain from remarking that the learned editor 
of T. Warton's Poems (Mr. Mant) has not observed a note appended to King*s Yindiot- 
tion of himself (p. 16), in which he says, — ** I can now honestly boast, that I have 
been libelled by the wortt and celebrated by the bett poet in Bngltmd.** See tlM 
Triunph of Isis. 

The passage Dr. King alludes to is at v. 110, and a fine passage it is :— 

** See on yon sage how all attentive stand 
To catch his darting eye and waving hand. 
Harkl he begins with aU a Tnlly's art 
To pour the dictates of a Cato^s heart : 
Skilled to pronounce what noblest thoughts inspire. 
He blends the speaker's with the patriot's fire : 
Bold to conceive, nor timorous to conceal. 
What Britons dare to think he dare to tell. 
'Tis his alike the eye and ear to charm ; 
To win with action, and with sense to warm. 
Untaught in flowery periods to dispense 
The lulling sounds of sweet impertinence, 
In frowns and smiles he gahis an equal prize, 
Nor meanly fears to fSedl, nor creeps to rise. 
Bids happier days to Albion be restored — 
Bids ancient justice rear her radiant sword. 
From me, as from my country, claims applause, 
And makes an Oxford's a Britannia's cause !" 

We may observe also that the line 198,— 

'' A Raleigh, Hampden, and a Somers shine.*' 

was originally written,— 

" Hampden and Hooker, Hyde and Somers shine."

His biographer informs us that Mr. Foster commenced before the age of 
twenty, probably with a view to authorship, the practice of committing to 
writing observations on natural objects, illustrative of human character, 
and reflections on morals and religion. He selected some of these 
under the title of " A Chinese Garden of Flowers and Weeds." They \rere 
continued through successive years, and contains, on the whole, eight hun- 
dred and ten articles, of which the editor has made a pretty copious selec- 
tion, occupying about seventy or eighty pages ; and, as the philosophy of a 
life appears to be condensed in them ; as they are the faithful record of 
personal feelings, daily reminiscences, tranquil reflections, and conversa- 
tional observations ; and as they reflect the thoughtful, serious, and 
inquiring character of the author, perhaps more strongly and in a shorter 
compass than any other portion of the composition, we make some extr ao to 
from them, with this previous remark, that what we have omitted to select 
is not therefore necessarily inferior in value, but that, when the balance of 
merit is so nearly even, the choice becomes of less in^>ortance. 

''207. Ca$ual thoughts are sometimes of

precept and example. Mr. Gray knew that by this unremitted culture of the mind, 
oondneted with judgment, it is not uncommon to find persons, when thdr under- 
standings are; matured, become members of society intrinsically more excellent, and 
publicly more distinguished^ than those who were or^ghiaUy their superiors by nature,

not be assured for a while whether they visions." 

In consequence of the high testimony borne to Mr. Foster^s character 
by Mr. Hall, he was invited to become the minister of a congr^ation at 
Frome, where he removed in 1804. The congregation was small ; he 
lodged and boarded with a quiet, respectable family, and he writes, *^ I sleep 
in a small chamber, the very room in which Mrs. Rowe died." It was 
during his residence at Frome, that the *' Essays," for which he gained 
justly so much reputation, were published. They appear to have originated 
in his conversations with the friend, who was idierwards Mrs. Foster. 
Those who, like ourselves, have not only been instructed by the wisdom, 
but pleased also with the force and energy of the language in these essays, 
will listen with curiosity to what the author says regarding their composi- 
tion ; nor will it be without its use, if it only teaches us that the compod- 
tion which we consider sufiBciently correct for our own private judgment, 
will appear deficient when we look at it with the eyes of the reader, and 
fixed in the unchangeable mould of the press. 

'* When I began this work and had pro- that whole pages could not be mended, but 

ceeded a little waj, I found I had a job in must be burnt, and something new written 

my hands, with a vengeance. To my as- in their stead. On the whole, I verily be- 

tonishment and vexation, I found there was lieve the revision and new-modelling of 

not a paragraph, and scarcely a sentence, the job has cost quite as much mental ex- 

that did not want mending, and sometimes ertion as the original writing of it," &c. 

He submitted his manuscript to the judgment of his Mend Mr. Hughes, 
making at the same time a very correct observation on the degree in which 
such assistakice is advantageous. '< 1 would make one yemariL once for 
all, viz. that when a m^ has written so much as to have formed his style, 
it will have a certain homogeneity, from which it will result that the sub- 
stitution of different forins of expression will not always be an improvement, 
even when they are better in themselves, since they may not be of a piece."* 

* This useful and judicious observation will be extended by the clawicsl scholar to 
the subject of emendatory criticism on the text of the ancient writers, as wdl as to that 
on our own poets, as Shakspere and his contemporaries. Who cannot see that, widi 
all his immense learning and sagacity, Bentley never could make the spirit of Horace 
his own, nor Warburton Shakspere's ? and, as poetic talent is a rare gift, it is in the 
text of the poets that the most unfortunate and discordant alterations have been made, 
though highly ingenious and the product of great learning. Now we will let our 
critical canons, if it so please the reader, be pointed ogainst ourselves ; and observe 
that there is a passage m the very opening of Paradise Lost, in wfaidi we conceive 
an error of the text has remained from edition to edition nnrectified, in which 
the introduction of a single letter has altered the sense and imagery.

most ungraceful repetition. Who, therefore, we feel inclined to say, would hesitate to 
say that the true reading mnst be 

" Some small ni^A-fonndered skiff?"

He now l)ecame a regular contributor to the Eclectic Keview, and 
was so occupied that upwards of thirteen years elapsed before he again 
appeared before the public in his own name. In 1805 a morbid slate of 
the thjrroid gland made its appearance, affected his powers of preaching, 
and led for a time to the resignation of the pastoral office in 1806. and he 
now depended entirely on his literary esertions for his support. A picture 
of his secluded and solitary life at this time is given by him to a friend.

friend" Miss Snooke six years younger. The spring came, and he confesses 
that never did the snowdrop, and other vernal flowers of hope, appear in

deplored that a great part of the early his-

luch as a man like him could have wished. 
There is no doubt that, in his hands, fathers, 
eooncils, and the ancient contests and mu- 
t«al persecutions of Christian parties 
take their worst form ; but after every 
aUowanoe for this historian's malignity, it 
il fanpossible not to contemplate with dis- 
gust and reprobation a great part of what

of this writer. I intend to read a huge 
portion of him with the most careful atten- 
tion. From what I have seen thus fiur, I 
doubt if there be in our languace a tiieolo- 
gical writer of greater talents in the Md 
of argument. I am gratiied in tiM ex- 
treme degree by his most deciilTd reaioa-

He was yery seyere on Sir W. Forbes's Life of Beattie, in the Edeetic 
Reyiew for 1807 ; but he was quite right when he said that the book was 
too big for the subject. Beattie was a man of genius, of leamingi and of 
worthy and well deserved to be remembered ; but two quartos filled with 
very commonplace letters were more than the public required, or the events 
of his life justified. We must extract one passage of the critique relating 
to the pecuniary assistance deemed necessary to Dr. Beattie, and to the 
pennon consequently given to him.f 

" Here is a man of moderate, economi- 
caly prudent habits ; a deep student, a 
diligent lecturer, an useful writer, and an 
amiable man ; who is in ciroumstancee

nence of, the comforts of life; and there 
are a very great numberof affluent, literary, 
tilled, and most affectionate dear friends,

some little matter could be done for him,

* For the strong manner in which Johnson spoke of Leslie, see Boswell's Johnson, 
vol. viii. p. 287. Henderson, But, sir, what do you think of Leslie ? Johnson. Chariea

t Some of the descriptive sketches and the moral reflections in the Minstrel are 
exquisitely beautiful ; but there also was room for Gray's criticism, far there are some 
fhcmghts feebly expressed, and language wanting in poetic character and foree, as, 
L 37, ''Thine Edwin parts not so." 5S, "Such delicacy were right marveUous 
indeed." il. I, «< The assaults of fortune's fickle gale,'' 25, '* His harp lay him 
beside,'' 35, '* Heroes, alas! are ^things of small concern.'' 42, "We fear on earth 
as other men have feared." These, surely are very prosaic expressions. Mr. Riohard- 
fon, in hii Literary Leaves, vol. ii. 161, meotions a poem by Beattie on a report of a 
monument to be erected in Westminster Abbey to the memory of ChurehiU^ not to be 
found in the common editions ; he says " containing some wretched critielsm, and H 
spirit of vulguity truly disgusting. He endeavours to persuade the worid that the

in some stock of imaginatioD, than from any calculation in the pleasure of 
beholding. In August 1815 he was at Bristol, and again heard Mr. Hall, 
whom he had so much and justly admired : — 

'^ The grand attraction at Bristol was 
the preaching of Mr. Hall, who happened 
to be on a visit there, and who preached 
three Sondays. I contrived to near him 
several times, and was glad to have the 
opportunity, as I had never heard him bat 
twice or three times before. . . . The last 
sermon I heard him preach, which dwelt 
much on the topic of living in votn, made a 
more powerful impression on my mind than 
I think any one I ever heard ; and this was 
not simply from its being the most elo- 
quent sermon unquestionably that I ever 
heard, or probably ever shaU hear, but 
for the solemn and alarming truth which 
it urged and pressed on the conscience 
with the power of a tempest. I suppose 
every inteUigent person has the impres- 
sion, in hearing him, that he surpasses 
tytrj other preacher, probably in the 
whole world. In the largest congregation 
there is an inconceivable stillness and 

sUence whUe he is preaching, partly in- 
deed to his having a low weak voice, 
though he in a large, strongly-built man ; 
but very much owing to that commanding 
power of his mind, which holds aU other 
minds in captivity while within reach of 
his voice. He has no tricks of art or 
oratory, no studied gesticulations, no 
ranting, no pompous declamation. His 
eloquence is the mighty power of spirit 
throwing out a rapid series of thoughts, 
explanatory, argumentative, brilliant, pa- 
thetic, or sublune; sometimes all these 
together, and the whole manner is simple, 
natural, grave, sometimes cool, often em- 

Shatic and ardent He seems always to 
ave a complete dominion over the sub- 
ject on which he is dwelling, and over the 
subjects on every side which he admits for 
illustration. He has the same pre-eminent 
powers in his ordinary conversation as in 
Lis preaching,'' 0cc. 

Mr. Foster's father died in 1804, and Mrs. Foster survived her hus- 
band to the close of 1806. During his residence at Bourton, his family 
was increased by the birth of five children, of whom two died in infancy. 
His time he describes as being very much at his own disposal — ^no 
visiting, nor travelling, nor letter writing, nor business to transact. He 
rose early, lit his own fire, and spent a great part of the day in his long 
garret, walking backwards and forwards for hours, thinking and com- 
posing, a habit he learned early in his musing life. He says if all his 
musing walks, since he was twenty years old, could be computed together, 
it would not unlikely be a length that would go several times round the 
globe. In 1817 he left Bourton, and became once more a resident and 
stated preacher at Downend. Of Mr. Fox's '< admirable fragment of a 
history," which had just appeared, he says — " We have read it twice, and 
some parts of it a third time; but I have entirely forgotten all it contains, 
except the death of Argyle, and a few more such interesting episodes. 
Did you notice this passage^-the death of Argyle?* excepting some Chris- 

* This is one of the most beautiful pictures in the pages of history, drawn with feeling, 
deUcacv, and taste ; the subject being most congenial to Mr. Fox's habits of thinking 
natoraUy gave rise to the reflections so impressively accompanying it. Familiar as it 
Is to our ear, and known even to the position of every little word, we still do not 
gmdge the labour of transcription, if we can impress thoroughly its beauty and tender- 
ness on others. "Before he left the castle, he had his dinner at the usual hour, at 
which he discoursed not only calmly but even cheerfully, with Mr. Charteris and others. 
After dinner he retired, as was his custom, to his bed-chamber, where it is recorded 
that he slept quietly for about a ouarter of an hour. While he was in b^ one of the 
members of the council came and intimated to the attendants a desire to speak with 
liim ; upon being told that the earl was asleep, and had left orders not to be disturbed, 
the messenger disbelieved the account, which he considered a device to avoid further 
oneitioiiinM. To satisfy him, the door of the bed-chamber was half opened, and he 
UMD beheld ei^oying a sweet and tranquil slumber the man who by the doom of him 
•»^ Ki. faUows was to die within the space of two short hours. Struck with the sight,

of mind which virtue only can confer I Wo know not who this man was ; but when we

vain title, or of lust of aome increase of wealth, which he did not want, and possibly

• Mr. Poster's high opinion of Robert Hnll seeml to have increased with every 
additional opportunity of seeing him. He ssys, in 1908, " I have seen a great ieiX

of an order fit, with respect to its intellectual powers, to go directly among a superior 
rank of intelligences in some other world, «-ilh very liftle requisite addition of force." 
Mf. Poster was too philosophic and thoughtful to use words at random— be was far 
above flattery ; and yet, we confess, these words sound strsngely to oor ears, and 
highly as we eatimate Mr. Hall, we yet know nothing in bis works to justify such an 
eulted eulogy. At any rate, we think, before be joined the superior rank of iatelli-

Mr. Fotter*8 pastoral labours, as far as preaching was concerned, were 
not socoessfiil in his second residence at Downend. His sermons, in 
short, were not snfficiently attractive, and he felt that he must resign his 
office. He dreaded attending the anniversary of a Bible society meeting at 
Kingswood. He was a man of simple habits, a lover of sense and truth, 
and being " serious in a serious cause, "* he said, << he utterly loathed and 
abominated the prevailing spirit and manner of these meetings, as exhibi- 
tioos of vanitT. eajcdenr, auod ostentation." He published his Essay on Popular 
Ignorance in 1820, which was the enlargement of a sermon he had preached 
in the School Socktj. He says he was in no danger of incurring the 
^Mm of iWacaltffla, for he exhibita the people as '* odiously and loath- 
■ wJ j vile, and degraded^ and depraved, debased, vicious^ and untractable ; 
IB ftigMblsaneness from one ace to another; sunk in the most barbaroos

we must confess that this offering of his brain, nurtured and disciplined 
with so much care^ is not, to our taste, nearlv so attractive, nor do

Mver* trial, in the death of his only son by a rapid decline. Tha low 
moBt have been great to his parents, for he is described as a boy of nrong-, 
clear understan<ling', though reservBd disposition and religious fceliog. In 
192J Mr. W". Auderson came \o i-esidc in Bristol, as tutor to the Baptiat 
C-oU^, and Mr. Hall retired to spend his last years iu the scene of hk 
e«rly ministry. This was a great accession to Mr. Forster's social enjoy- 
ments; and on the occasion afterwards of Mr. Hall's death, he spoke of his 
loss as "a sense of privation partaking of desolateneBS." As a preacher 
he ttai, his like will come no more. He dectiued from ill health preaching 
his ^neral sermon, but wrote !«on)c obsen'atious on him an a preacher. 

The ensuing six jears, aayg his biographer, formed the saddest period of 
Mr. Foster's life. It began with the fatal illness of his n-ife ; her health 
had been some time in a precarious state, hut in the spring of 1832 the 
sympttana of decline assutned a dccidi^ly alarming aspccL She died after 
much mfiering in the early part of September. " It has been," said her 
husband, " an advantageous circumstance, that the period of her illness 
was appointed to fall on exactly the finest, brightest, and warmest part of 
the year, from May to September, during which, besides the uights being 
short, she greatly enjoj'cd the exhiliratiou of being drawn about the garden 
and TicitutT in a Bath chair, admiring the flowers, and refreshed by the 
fine air ana sunaliine, which she had not enjoyed so much for years before. 
He describes Iter as his .affectionate and viduable companion for nearly a 
quarter of a century, regarding her as the cause of not ouly tlie happiness 
he poesessed, but of the mental improvement he made, her intellect being 
strong and correct ; and for a refined perception and depth of reflective 
feeling;, hei* husband declared he had never known her equal. In 1833 he 
made another excurdon mto North Wales. He calls It "a fine liuurioas 
excursion, a gratifying adventure." Sorrow, however, came to meet him 
at the conclusion. His friends Mr. Hall and Mr. Anderson were gone, 
and their deaths were followed by that of Mr. Hughes. He vras soon after 
deprived of his only brother, and of one of his few early associates, " As 
lo companions and friends of early times," he writes, " they have almost 
all left the world." His brother he had not seen for more than thirty 
years, for during that time he had not visited his native county ; and now 
the last link of connection with it was broken, all would be strange ; few 
persons alive to remember him, and the very localities transposed ; the 
woods be rambled in cut down, and the romantic glena and wild brooks he 
loved possessed by manufacturers, and swarming with a rising population. 
Mr. Foster closed his literary labours hy an article on Polack's New 
Zealand in the Eclectic Review for 1839. In the siunmer of 1840 he 
rbited his friends at Bourtou, looking with a pensive interest and not a 
little painful emotion at the rooms he had frequented and the rural walks 
which he had trodden for so many years. 

He was in Loudon for the last time in the spring of 1836, at the house 
of Sir John Eosthope, devoting much of his time to the various exhibitious 
and works of art in the Britisb Museum and elsewhere. Mr. Foster's 
health had on the whole betn so gootl that he says he had not kept his 
bed a single day for the long term of fifty years ; but near the end of 
December he was attacked by bronchitis. From this, however, he appears 
dowly to have recovered, for in the g^tember of 1842 he went to Bourton 
for the last time, staying about six weeks, and appearing somewhat in- 
rigorated : but in .Tannary of the nest y Mr, 1843, he had attacks of spitting 
of blood, a troublesome cough, and Iwked thmucr wA luvre looguid' 'ru«

last time of his appearing on any public occasion was in June 1843, at the 
meeting of the Bristol Baptist CoUege, where he attended one examination* 
Towards September all the unfayourable symptoms were aggravated ; on 
the 24th he took to his room, which he never left again. It appears that 
his lungs had been diseased for many years. He sat op for a few hours 
almost daily till the day before his d^th. On Saturday, Oct. 14, the day 
before his death, he complained of feeling some confusedness in his head, 
and was much oppressed in his breathing. And now we must, for a final 
scene, take, as is most fitting, the very words of his faithful and affectionate 
biographer : — 

" He wai obliged to desist tbat dij the habit of doing ererj night for the last 

from his nsnal practice of having some fortnight. But towards four o'clock she 

one read to him ; and finding it very went to the door of his room to listen, and 

difficult to converse, he requested to be being satisfied from the sound she heard 

left quite alone during the afternoon and that he was sleeping, retired without going 

evening. This desire was complied with ; in. At about six o'clock she went again 

some of his family going occasionally into to the door, and this time hearing no 

his room, but not so as to disturb him till sound, she went in and found that he had 

the usual hour of retiring to rest. They expired. His arms were gendj extended, 

then particularly requested that some one and his countenance as tranquQ as that of 

might be allowed to sit up with him through a person in a peaceful sleep. Death had 

the night; this however he steadily refused, taken place but a verv short time, for only 

thouffh, in consequence of a long continued the forehead was cold. On Uie following 

fit of coughing, he was in a state of greater Saturday his remains were laid in the 

exhaustion than usual. The kind old grave, which, just seventeen years before,

apprehension lest she should disturb him, son, in the burial ground belonging to the 

did not go at all into his room in the chapel of Downend, whore he formerly 

course of the night, as she had been in preached.*' 

We have thus accompanied the narrative of Mr. Foster's useful and 
unambitious life to its conclusion ; and very brief and unfinished as our 
sketch has been, it must, we think, have left an impression highly favour- 
able to him, and such as will induce many to turn to the more copious and 
original biography. A few observations have been added at the*end of 
the volume on his character, by the editor and by a friend ; and we could 
almost wish they had been more minute. They describe his fondness for 
nature, and his delight in the various beauties which she pours forth for 
the delight of man.* He had great susceptibility to the skyey influences, 
as men of fine temperament and nervous susceptibility have, and he often re- 
marked how much less any given quantity of time was worth in dreary, 
inclement weather. He used to say it depressed all hb faculties, in- 
dependently of the low temperature. Mr. Sheppard says, " Mr. Foster was 
a genuine lover of natural scenery, and his admiration dwelt much on its 
separate features, even more perhaps than on the varied whole and 
the combined effect. I have known him linger by a huge ancient tree 
in the park at Longleat, still reluctant to quit the spot, and as if half ready 
to take root near its giant trunk. A lady with whom he visited many 
beautiful spots in our neighbourhood, speaks of the difficulty with which 
he was persuaded to quit Alfred's Tower, at Stourhead, where the pano- 
ramic prospect rivetted him. In the same mood he would gaze untiringly 
on a waterfall, or the rushing of a rapid stream. Though he did not 
possess any scientific acquaintance with music, yet he was passionately 

* " I have heard of a man who, upon his deathbed, being to teke farewell of his 
son, and considering what course of life to recommend that might secure his innocence, 
at last enjoined him to spend his time in making of veraes, and in draaring a garden ; 
the old man thinking no temptation could compare to either of these employments,"

fond of those kinds which were solemn and mournful. He used to wonder 
that it was thought impossible for persons, technically speaking, without 
ear, to feel interest^ in that art, and he strongly asserted the power it could 
exercise over himself. The productions of the great painters he much 
admired ; so that when he saw the specimens collected by Mr. Hart Davis, 
now at Mr. Miles's, he owned there was some advantage in being rich. For 
engravings and graphical works he had great partiality, and his library was 
so extensive and valuable as sometimes to make him reproach himself with 
the expense at which it had been procured. His civility and kindness to 
working people is prominently mentioned. He never would suffer a bargain 
to be driven with the poor. He has been known to go back to a shop and 
pay something more for what he thought had been sold to him too cheaply. 
" It isn't often we meet with persons that do that, Sir," was the remark of 
a young woman on his turning back and paying a shilling more for a 
lithograph which he had just bought. His charity was liberal, and con- 
ducted with the utmost delicacy and regard to the feelings of those h^ 
assbted. He was most anxious to prevent any expressions of gratitude from 
reaching him on such occasions. Once when he had transmitted quite 
unexpectedly a handsome donation to a person in a respectable station, but 
with limited means, he added " a most peremptory injunction that he might 
never be mortified by one syllable or hint in any way or tone of acknow- 
ledgment for so mere a trifle ;" but he was quick in appreciating any 
proofs of recollection and kindness made to him by his friends. All kind 
letters and messages had a more than ordinary value in his estimation. 
His address was perfectly simple, his language plain and familiar, and his 
manner indicating habitual meditativeness. In large mixed companies, he 
was not very ready to converse, as what man of sense and modesty is ; 
but in the presence of a few friends, the energy, the originality, and varied 
opulence of his mind were readily disclosed. In verbal wit he seldom in- 
dulged, nor was that faculty much allied to his other mental powers and 
habits. Some years ago, it is said, the Emperior Alexander's piety was a 
fa\'ourite theme at public meetings : a person who received the statement 
on this point, as Mr. Foster thought, too easily, remarked that really 
the Emperior must be a very good man. " Yes sir,*' he replied, gravely, 
but with a significant glance, " a very good man — very devout. No doubt 
he said grace before he swallowed Poland ! '' His disposition was medita- 
tive, and the turn of his mind grave, contemplative, and melancholy.* 
The subjects habitually occupying his mind were serious and important ; the 
great duty of his calling he had ever before him ; and what he has called 
the " moral authentic " of life was usefully and correctly balanced by him. 
His tendency to indulge in theories and questionings on the state after 
death, is a mental feature belonging to one like him who loved to sit in the 
shade, and, added to that, it is mentioned that he had always a disposition 
to listen to works of supernatural appearances, in which his belief was 
very decided ; and there was manifestly an earnest longing, not unmixed 
with hope, that a ray of light might from this quarter gleam across the 
shaded frontier. The belief of the heightened and conscious existence of the 
soul in an intermediate state he held with great firmness, and would have

194 RyUnd's 1^9 and Correipondence of John FoiUr. [Aujf*^, 

thought it an unfavourable indication in any one to maintain the contrary 
opinion. His style of preaching is described as distinct from what is called 
oratory, neither adorned with flowing eloqiienco nor graced by the elegance 
of gesture or voice, but simple, clear, and unambitious, illustrating his sub- 
ject by varied associations and images, enforced by calm expostidation and 
appeals, interspersing <* shrewd terms of half latent irony against irreligiou 
and folly, almost moving a smile by unconscious approaches to the edgre of 
wit, yet effectually quelling it by the unlooked-for gravity of the tone and 
purpose." If there are passages in his sermons where the literary style pr«- 
▼ailedy they are intermixed with others of a different cast, and, in their mode 
of expression and appeal, plain, pointed, and colloquial. His conversational 
topics were, it appears, drawn more than could be wished towards matters of 
civil and ecclesitMtical character, to political abuses, oppressions, the vices 
of a worldly people, and the inconsistencies of Christians ; in feict, to those 
subjects that lay in the compass of party feeling. This is avowed and 
lamented by one of his friends, who wishes that he had expatiated on 
themes of a higher class, though he rejects any such censure on his conduct 
in these parts, as party spirit will desire, and vulgar theologists adopt.* 
Disliking, as we do, all controversial recrimination, and the bitterness of 
party disputation, we shall go no farther than mention that Mr. Foster's 
dislute to the Established Church was great indeed for a person of so calm 
and philosophical a character, and was often expressed in terms of cor- 
responding force and meaning. But hard words are little correspondent to 
real philosophy ; they at once tend to debase the cau^ of literature, and m- 
crease the warmth of religious difference ; and he who is wise, and knows the 
value of peace and of time, will keep clear of " the subtleties of confident 
disputants, and the desperate art of words "f beiug quite satisfied that 
the wilderness of controversy may so thicken by degrees as at last to close up 
for ever the latent roads to truth, while the flames intended for the sacred 
lamps will wildly swell out and bum up the altar and the temple, and 
even Charity herself. It will only be necessary to add, that though Mr. 
Foster is chiefly known to the world as an able and eloquent writer, he was 
also esteemed as one of the ablest ministers in the communion to which he 
belonged ; surpassed only, but not obscured, by the splendour of Mr. 
Robert Hall, whose great abilities persons of all classes and persuasions 
seem equally to have delighted to honour.

Account of Sparham Church, Norfolk, 


the day of hi8 coronation ; as noticed 
by Picai't {Ceremonies, I. part ii. p. 

I will not trouble you, Mr. Urban, 
or your readers, by enlarging upon 
the subject, and shewing how the same 
ceremony was, with small alterations, 
practised upon the enthronization of 
the Greek Emperors. It may be more 
satisfactory if I rather subjoin to this 
accoimt of the Sparham screen the 
few memoranda respecting the church 
which I brought away from a visit to 
it with Mr. Goddard Johnson and my 
daughter, in October, 1841, when the 
latter made the drawings. Blomelield, 
who is in general silent on every point 
regarding architecture, here so far 
diners from his usual custom, as to tell 
us that this church " is a regular pile, 
consisting of a nave with north and 
south aisles covered with lead, a tiled 
chancel, and at the west end of the 
nave a square embattled tower, with 
five bells.** To this may be added 
that it is a rather spacious building of 
flint and rubble, and entered by a 
south porch. Internally, the nave is 
divided from the aisle on either side by 
four wide pointed arches, supported on 
short octana;ular columns. The win- 
dows, as well in the aisles as clerestory, 
are all of three lights, and of the late 
perpendicular style. The same is the 
case with the east window. Those in the 
chancel are only of two lights : the west 
window is of modern insertion. The 
roof of the nave is original ; plain, but 
handsome. The font, which is ancient, is 
large, square, and supported on a central 
pilkr : each side of the basin is marked 
with two very shallow, simple, pointed 
arches. In the windows there still 
remiuns much painted glass, almost 
altogether figures of saints, and many 
of them perfect ; but the armorial 
bearinffs mentioned by Blomefield 
have disappeared. Of the benches 
several are old ; and on the backs of two 
of them is somesood open carving. The 
best is now endosed in a pew opposite 
the pulpit. The design and execution 
of its workmanship are elegant : in the 
centre is an escutcheon charged with a 
staff raffule, probably the armorial 
device of some family connected with 
the parish ; but this is a point IS have 
been imablc to ascertain. I need 
hardly say that the Calais branch of 
'he Wodenouses, who live near, bore 


three such, bondwiiys, or. It is like- 
wise worthy of remark, that, imme- 
diately on entering the chancel from 
the nave, there are two arches cut in the 
wall on cither side, each sufficiently 
large to hold three persons, and both 
provided with stone benches. The 
last-mentioned circumstance seems to 
forbid the idea of their havinff been 
intended as tombs of the founders, or 
as Holy Sepulchres, which firequently 
occupy sucn a place on the north. 
Here 1 cannot but believe that all of 
them were orij^inally seats ; the 
northern appropriated to some resident 
men of large property in the parish or 
some civil authorities; the opposite 
ones to the clergy, who uniformly 
claimed to themselves tlie southern or 
ri^t-hand side. 

upon this subject, should further in- 
formation be desired, it will be found 
in the 3rd volume of the Vetusta Mo- 
numenia, in a letter from Mr. David 
Wells, containing " Observations on 
Stone Stalls in Churches,** appended 
to the description of the Stalls in 
Chatham Church, p. 4. Mr. WeUs ad- 
most doubts if the arches on the north 
side of a chancel were ever designed 
for seats. I am satisfied they were so ; 
for we have other examples in Nor- 
folk, and among them a very striking 
one in the church at Freethorpe. 

The following tombstones alone re- 
main, many having been recently de- 
stroyed on the repaying of the nave 
and aisles, where none are now lefl 
except the brass plates mentioned by 
Blomefield, page 261, including the 
effigy of Richard Dykke.

THE present pubtishiug season lias been particularly fertile in collec- 
tions of Original Letters. Tbey have come upon us in such nurobera and 
with such rapidity that we hove been unable to keep pace with them in 
our Review. We are now about to make an effort to overtake them, by 
devotiug a few articles specially to their consideration. In the present 

Eper we have taken the collections sent forth by Mr. Halhwell and Sir 
en^ Ellis. We shall nest give attention to Miss Wood," and afterwards 
to Mi. Carlyie.f In reference to the first of these collections we have 
felt ourselves obliged to speak strongly in condemnation of the carelessness 
rad inaccuracy which pervade it from be^nning to end. The book 
comes forth with an air of assumption and pretence, and is puffed in many 
quarters with extraordinary diligence, hut we would entreat its Editor to 
beware how he permits himself to be misled into again taking part iu 
■ucfa a publication. He possesses a zeal which, if employed in an honour- 
able aervice. would render him distinguiBhed ; but no zeal, nor any other 
rid quality, can withstand the evil inffuence of several such books. If 
would sink into a Ned Purdon, he will proceed ; if he would hold a place 
■nioi^it the labourers who do credit to literature, he mui^ retrace his 
stepa. No one will he more delighted than ourselves to forget that he has

To the merit of Sir Henry E!hs s book wo have already borne willing 
lectimony in the Preface to our last Volume. Miss Wood's work is one 
of great and varied interest, and is illustrated with the moet commend- 
able industry and research ; and Mr. Carlyle'a is, in many respects, a model 
of editorial carefulness and zeal. But we shall have opportunities of 
Btating our opinion more fully upon all these points.

— .„i,..i J .:,i. .„ — spellina ahould be modernised. Both 

agree that the letters should be printed, 
and that they ahould be printed accu- 
rately ; but editorti and societies stand 
apart upon the point of adherence to 
or ileviation from the original spelling. 
Theadvantoge of modemiMition is to ^ 
found in the gt^uler easiness ofperusal, 
and the consequent greater chauce of 
popularity. "Theceneralreader,"asis 
hci'e observed by Mr. Halliwell, " can- 
not reasonably be expected to possess 
BufHcient leal iu the pursuit to conquer 
more than the moat ordiuarr difficul-

OS most Qselul, nay most valuable, and 
we are ready to hail every addition to 
nor pubUshnl stock of such documents 
with unfeigned gratification. But, as 
ID all other things, so in the publication 
of letters, (here are certain limils and 
distinctions which it is necessary (o 
hear In mind, and in the observance or 
tu^lcci of which is to be found the 
<USer«nce between a good book and a 
bad one. One e^tor or one society 
(as, for instance, the Camden Society) 
uinks that letters ought to be pre- 
toited in the ori^al spelling ; another 
editor or another society (as, for in-

spelling in modernised. This is a fkct 
which no auticiuary, nor any other 
person, o«n be ignorant of, or can dis- 
pute ; and we are certain that Mr. Ual- 
tiwell is qiutc mistaken when he says 
that ** this fact our anti(iuarics seem 
fbr the most part to ha^e boon obsti- 
nately bent on cither not admitting or 
overlooking, as one inconsistent with 
the gravity of their avocation.** We 
ere astonished that Mr. IlalliweU should 
have been so long conversant amongst 
antiquaries without discovering that 
ihe adherence to original spelling is de- 
fended by arguments far more sensible 
than he here supposes. Its defence 
may be rested urmoipally upon two 
points. First, tnat such is the igno- 
rance, or the weakness, or the care- 
lessness, of human editors, that every 
p^mitted departure from the exact 
oruinal adds to the chances of error, 
ana is sure to introduce blundering, 
confusion, and untruth. 

And here let us pause a moment, 
and inc|\dre what sort of a comment 
upon this argmnent is presented by the 
book now before us. Mr. Halhwell 
has modernised his orthography : have 
eny mistakes crept into his book by 
reason of that moucrnisation, that is, in 
the very act of modernisation? No 
doubt of it. Ilundreds. We will ex- 
hibit a few of them. 

At p. 136, vol. ii., " lam sorcj* writes 
King James, *^the world should see you 
do** a certain act. It should be ttarry. 

At p. 155, the some king writes to 
Ids favourite, Buckingham, ** Mv sweet 
JUorfy," instead of ** swoQtheari, 

In the same page he promises to act, 
la a particular matter, ** as the toorthy 
of the thing shall prove.** This should 
of course hQ worth. All these mistakes 
have arisen fVom the incorrect moder- 
nisation oi* words terminating with the 
old final c. 

In the next page, and ulao in p. 159, 
the word cmmtMses presents an erro- 
neous modernisation, so perfectly ridi- 
culous, that it seems almost incredible 
'^t any editor could have sanctioned 
It. The original word is too gross for 
fmblication, even in James I.*s strange 

At p. 169, the same process of mo- 
der&iMtion converts a waiH-eoM into a 
vxuh'coat; and in the next page 
c^ges ''fewer ships,** into ♦*/ofir 

*»P9 r Aaa »t p. 181, » jewd in the 

form of the letter I, worn at court in 
honour of the sovereign, is modernised 
into/r«/; and Prince Charles is advised 
to give, not his I, but his firaty as a pre* 
sent to some Don. 

These instances of erroneous moder- 
nisation occur within a few pages. We 
would undertake to produce several 
hundred such mistakes from the book 
before us. All these might have been 
avoided if there had not been any at- 
tempt at modernisation. Can any one 
deny, then, with Mr. IIalliwell*s nook 
before him, that modernisation adds 
to the chances of unfuithfUness in pub- 
lication ? 

Again, modernisation is opposed 
upon a second ground. A distmction 
is made between history and historical 
materials. The former is intended for 
tJie people, and cannot be written in a 
form too attractive. Its value increases 
in proportion as it smooths awa;^ diffi- 
culties and presents facts, incidents, 
opinions, characters— every thing re- 
lating to the past time-— in a form which 
tJie. people can understand, and from 
whicn they may receive instruction 
and delight. That is history ; but his- 
torical materials cannot, it is contended, 
from their very nature, be converted 
into ready instruments of popular in- 
struction. IVevious study ofa minute 
and laborious character is necessary 
in order to their being thoroughly un- 
derstood. Every person, fact, and 
thing that is mentioned in them re- 
quires knowledge of some kind or 
other before the true bearing of what 
is stated can be discovered. Every 
document needs an historical disserta- 
tion to be written upon it before its 
uses can be made properly apparent; 
and, OS far as popular instruction is 
concerned, history deduced from docu- 
ments is a readier and a better teacher 
than documents, or other historical ma- 
terials, with the necessary parapher- 
nalia of notes and dissertations. His- 
tory is the teachei* of the people ; histo- 
rical materials ai*e the teachers of the 
student and of the writer of history. 
If this be true, the great alignment for 
modernisation becomes ini^plicable.

f<jrence to the wource whence evory 
letter in aaid to be derived in a note 
at the bottom of the page. In tin- 
introduction the editor noasts of " the 
extensive ground over which imr in*

extensive it has been, he Baya, " We 
have merely to mention the followiiw 
repositories of ancient MSS. ti-om all 
ot which our collection contains npevi' 
mens." There follows a list of hcenty- 
eight repositories, cxlenilinc from the 
Vatican to Edinburgh ; and it ia libe- 
rally acknowledged that "durins tliese 
inquiries we have been deeply in- 
debted lo several of the keeper» or 
owners of these distinguished col- 
Icctions," and lo various eminent 
persons, whose names are jxunpoualy

Tt is obvious that the person who 
made tliese translations was entirely 
ignorant of the genius and structure 
of the language of the originals, The 
meaning of a word or two was caught 
here and there, and the transJator 
guessed at the remainder- All these 
seven letters bear out the same con- 
clusion. The editor siatea in a note, 
"These letters have been translated

rl of Shrewsbury," which any one 
vho had procured it from the original 
would have known are not deposited 
ftt Hatfidd, which is the seat of the 
Marquess of SaUsbury. 

Under Richard in. are inserted four 
letters, said to be derived from ^'MSS. 
preserred in Uie archives of the city 
of Yoric." Knowing one of them to 
be in MS. Hari. 433, and to be printed 
in Drake*s York, we turned to that 
book and there found all the four, 
printed with many blunders, which, in 
smte of Mr. Davies's recent work, 
Mr. Halliwell has here preserved and 
added to; whilst ^'the archives of 
York" stand chronicled in the list of 
repositories to which the editor is in- 

One of the strangest instances of 
this unjustifiable mode of taking ad- 
vantage of other men*s labours, and 
claimmg credit for research that has 
been bwtowed by other people, occurs 
i n re ference to the Letters of Henry 
Vm. to Anne Bolcyn, which are in 
the Library of the Vatican. These 
letters were published by Heame in 
1720, again in the Harleian Miscellany 
in 1745, agdn in the volume of Selec- 
tions firom the Harleian Miscellany in 
1793, agidn, very carefully, from the 
originals by the Rev. W. dmn, in 
The Pamphleteer in 1823, again by 
Miss Benger in 1827, and again in 
ACss 8tri<£land*s Life of Anne Bole3m 
in 1842 ; and many of them have been 
paUi^ed separately in various other 
pAaoes. Besides these publications in 
England, they were also published at 
Fkffis, some twenty or five-and-twenty 
years aoo, in a volume without date, 
bnt edited by the celebrated printer 
Crapdet, and entitled ^^ Lettres de 
Hnri VIIL a Anne Boleyn^ avec la tra- 
dmetion^ preoedies dune Notice HiHo^ 
rijNtf 9ur Anne Boleyn'' Crapelet's 
emtion was printed m>m a transcript 
niade from the originids by M. M^on, 
tad is preceded by a very sensible 
OMrfttsefMn^ in wnich the history of 
the letters and of the edition is clearly 
stated. In the present work Mr. Hal* 
liwdl puts himself in the place of M. 
Crapeiet; translates Crapelet*s aoer- 
Hmmmd, and reprints Crapelet*s let- 
ters, and all this without the slightest 
mention of him, or aUnsion to his 
iiMnt. ^. HilfiwiU fiirtlMr iellfl Ua 

readers that he is indebted, not to M* 
Crapelet*s book, but to M. MStm*s 
copy^ for a more faithful transcript 
thiui has hitherto appeared in this 
country. He adds that he cannot 
refrain from stating that he has the 
satisfaction of placmg these letters 
before the English public for the first 
time in a complete form. There is 
no comparison, in point of accuracy 
or completeness, between Mr. HaUi- 
well's edition and those of several of 
his predecessors. Like all the rest of 
Mr. Halliweirs book, these letters 
are full of errors, misprints, and omis- 
sions (some of them most ridiculous), 
but the disingenuous use made of M, 
Crapelef s labours is the feature in 
the transaction which is the most es- 
sentially discreditable. 

These instances are enough to prove 
that tlie pretence of research made 
with such lofly emphasis in the title- 
page and introduction is all mere pre- 
teuce; and that the materials for a 
great part of the book have been got 
up from ordinary sources, and are 
here published, not only without the 
grace and honesty of acknowledg- 
ment, but in a way which outrages ul 
ordinary notions of right and wrong. 
In the second volume all idea of con- 
formity with the titlepage is aban- 
doned ; and letters are reprinted from 
the commonest books in tne language, 
Charles's Eikon, the Cabala, Stnmbi^^s 
Letters, &c. &c. 

But this book, " now first collected 
from the originals,** is not only a mere 
collection of letters " conveyed** fi^m 
the works of other men, it is frill to 
overfiow of the most absurd and 
egregious blimders committed in the 
act of " conveyance.** We will give a 
few specimens. 

At p. 38, vol. i. is a formal receipt 
from Edward IH. to tiie Abbot of 
Reading for certain jewels lent to 
him, — a very well-known document. 
It is enrolled upon the Rot. Aleman. 
12 E. ni. ; there is a copy of it in MS. 
Cotton. Claud. E. ni. fo. 2 b. ; and it 
is printed in thcFcsdera, ii. 1041, N. £. ; 
in Coate8*s Hist, of Reading, App. 
No. viii. ; in Leland*8 CoUectanea, li. 
625, edit. 1774; and in otiier places. 
The copy here jnven has as many 
errors as lines. Richard de Maurdyn, 
a humble monk, is converted into an 
abbot of Reading ; a oballoe and paten 
are omitted in tt9 bn^enlorj; 0om^

It IB referred to the " Acts of Priyv 
Council :" we cannot find it there. It 
ia evident, upon reading it, that it is 
very incomplete, and is a mere jumbled 
nbrKlgment. At p. 102 there is the 
same letter repeated. It is siud this 
lime lo be addressed to the Chancellor, 
and is printed unabridged, but with 
many blunders, and with the same 
evident address to several persons, al- 
though even then it is inaccurate. The 
letter was addressed to the Council, of 
whom the Duke of Gloucester was 
president. It b*san thus : " Right

Original Letters. 


At vol. i. p. 234 is a letter fi-om 
Henry VUI. to Wolsey. It is printed 
in £m8*s Letters, in the State Paper 
publications, and by Strype. All of 
them print, " cause why I am so loth to 
repair to London." Halliwell, ^^ sloth

Vol. i. p. 244. Henry Vill. is made 
to write about his nephew, the bearer 
of a letter, dated 8th December. The 
letter is referred to two Cotton. MSS. 
but is really copied from the State 
Paper publication, 11. part 3, p. 59, 
note and all, without the slightest 
allusion to that work. The letter 
is addressed to an unknown Lrish 
chieftain, and the nephew is his 
nephew, not the king*s ; and the date 
of the letter 5th December. We have 
at this part of the book 20 pages

But we must have done. Faults 
of all conceivable kinds could be ad- 
duced without end. Text, references 
to authorities, glossary, notes, intro- 
ductions, all teem with blunders totally 
destructive of authority ; all give proof 
of every kind and variety of ignorance. 

If, as we understand from the cor- 
respondence in the Athenieum, the 
materiab for the book were got to- 
gether by some one whose name does 
not appear in it, it is sufficiently 
obvious that that person knows no- 
thing of historical documents ; but 
it is Mr. Halliwell's share in the 
publication that is the most dis- 
reputable. His carelessness and in- 
accuracy have long been painfully 
obvious to all persons who nave ex- 
amined any of his books. For some 
years we looked upon his errors indul- 
gently, on account of his youth ; but 
wat has passed away. Lately the po- 
sition in which he has stood nas pre- 
vented ourselves, and we have no 
doubt has abo prevented many other 
persons, from dwelling upon iiis ob- 
vious incompetency for many of the 
tasks he has undertaken. But, in the 
present instance, we feel that we 
should betray the* interests of that 
particular walk in literature to which 
we have so lon^ devot^ ourselves,* 
and become parties to the dissemina- 
tion of most glaring historical untrutib, 
if we were to pass unnoticed so pe- 
culiar an exhioition of editorial m- 
comj)etency. The blundering in his 
additions, the shallowness ot his re- 
marks, and the total absence of every 
thing like proper editorial illustration, 
are as marvellous as that he should 
have condescended to play the part of 
a mask, and sell the authority that 
may attach to the many initials which 
he appends to his name, to an ignorant 
compilation and to a titlepase devoid 
of truth . Such things discredit litera- 
ture and literary men, cast wide upon 
the world the seeds of almost ineradi- 
cable errors, and stamp lasting dis- 
credit upon every on^ concerned in

truflt on €kKl and Saint George that 
we shall have a fair day on them,

iihall shortly hear good tidings. And, 
howsoever the matter goeth, I will 
make a fray with them if wind and 
weather will servc^ or ten days [come] 
to an end ; therefore I pray you re- 
commend me to the king*s noble grace, 
and show him that he trust no tidings 
till [he] hear from me, for I shall be 
tJie first that shall know it if I live, 
and shall be the first that shall send 
him word. (i. 150.) 

Poor follow I the editor should have 
told his readers the sequel of the me* 
lancholy tale. The French remamed 
quietly m Brest. Sir Edward block- 
aded the harbour for some days, and 
ultimately determined to attack them 
with •* row-barges." He headed the 
expedition himself, and on the 25th 
April, just twenty days after ho had 
written the letter we have quoted, 
suddenly entered the hostile harbour. 
A munlerous fire from ships and bat- 
teries was instantly opened upon him ; 
his companions feU away, but the ad- 
miral pushed on, and, with a mad and 
reckless bravcrr, boarded the galley 
of the French admiral. For an instant 
he seemed successful, but the enemy 
rallied. He and his UtUe band of 
eighteen followers were furiously 
amiled. They retreated along the 
deck of the vessel which they had 
boarded towards their boat, which 
was moored alongside. One by one 
they fell. The survivors reached the 
mde of the ship. The admiral stood 
over his boat, and was just about to 
enter it, when by some mischance it 
was set adrifl. lie saw that escape 
was impossible. He took the whistle, 
which was the badge of his office, from 
his neck and threw it into the sea. 
The next instant ho was borne over- 
board by the enemies' pikes. 

In the next letter wo have Queen 
Katharine, just before the battle of 
Flodden, " pra)ring (Jod to send us as 
ffood luck against the Scots as the 
king hath in S'rance ;" and then follow 
two letters of Lord Thomas Howard, 
the elder brother and successor of Sir 
£dward Howard in his office of Lord 
Admiral^ full of trouble and disap- 
pointment on account of the difficulties 

which overwhelmed the fleet on hia 
brother's death. The next letter is 
from Sir Edmond Howard, and gives 
a jjitia>)lc account of his great debt and 
difficulties. He dared not go abroad, 
nor could he remain in safety at his 
own house. 

** Tbero is, he says, such writs of ex- 
ecutions out against me ... I maj repent 
that ever I was nobleman*i son born, lead- 
log the sorrowful life that I live ; and if I 
were a poor man*8 son I might dig and delvo 
for my living, and my children , and my 
wife's, for whom T take more thought than 
for myself ; and so may I not do now, but 
to great reproach and shame to me and all 
my blood. . . . Sir, I am informed there 
shall be a voyage made into a new found 
land, with divers ships, and captains, and 
soldiers in them : and I am informed the 
voyage shall be honourable and profitable 
to the king's grace and all his realm. Sir, 
if your grace think my poor carcase any- 
thing meet to serve the king's grace in the 
said voyage, for the bitter passion of 
Christ be you my good lord therein , for 
now I do live as wretched a life as ever did 
aentleman being a true man, and nothing 
have I to live on, nor to find me, my wife, 
and my children, meat or drink." (i. 161.) 

Such are the troubles which not all 
the blood of all the Howards can escape. 
After a report of the battle of 
Flodden (i. 163), and a letter of Henry 
VIII., recommending ihe Grey Friars 
to the favour of Leo X. (i. 165), we 
find the University of Cambridge 
striving to secure the interest of tue 
all-j[K)werful favourite by an offer of 
their chancellorship, and Wolsey^s 
reply, in which he declined the prof- 
fered honour, (i. 168.) We are Uien 
brought to the correspondence of 
Richard Pace, which conducts us 
through many stages of Wolsey*8 for- 
tune. Some letters of Sir Richard 
Gresham dissipate " into air, thin air," 
viU'ious deliglitful speculations re- 
speclin«j the choice hangings with 
which tlie Cardinal adorned tlio state 
rooms at llumpton Court, and set be- 
fore us how the great ecclesiastic 
availed himself of tnc services of the 
eminent merchant. From one of these 
letters it also appears how the Gresh- 
nms obtained tliat fVeedom of com- 
merce by which they were enabled to 
acquire princely fortunes for them- 
selves, and to benefit their country 
with buildings more valuable than 
palaces. Sir Richard begs of Wolsey

shews the secresy with which the 
Lutheran publications were spread 
abroad, — " a marrcllous sort of books 
found, which were hid under the 
earth, and othei*wise secretly conveyed 
from place to place;** and introduces 
us to blaster Grarratt of Oxford, who 
was shortly afterwards called upon to 
bear testimony in Smithfield. 

And now the old archbishop had 
recourse to a new device— one of IVIrs. 
Partington's kind — for staying the in- 
coming flood. Two editions of T3m- 
dale's New Testament, of which we 
have got a glimpse through Lee, had 
been printed on the contment aflc^ 
many troubles and hindrances, and 
flight from place to place. Of course 
it nad many blunders in it, and had 
been accompanied by a heavy outlay. 
The archbisnop, perhaps through the 
intervention of Tunstall bishop of 
London, bought up the whole of DOth 
impressions, and destroyed them. He 
did his work completelv, for, according 
to Sir Henry Ellis, whose note upon 
this subject deserves great attention, 
only a fragment of one edition, which 
is in tlic possession of IVIr. Grenvillc, 
and one perfect copy and one imperfect 
copy of the other, can now be found. 
The perfect copy is at the Baptist col- 
lege m Bristol, the other at St. Paul's. 
As the archbishop could not buy up 
the original, of course his crafl had 
but a very temporary success ; and his 
money enabled the editor and printer 
to set forth with good courage towards 
11 more perfect coition . A letter fi*om 
the Bishop of Norwich (ii. 92) proves 
tliat all tlie Bishops of the province of 
Canterbury were called upon to con- 
tribute towards the expense of the 
archbishop's little scheme for buying 
up the Reformation. 

A few years bring on the carpet 
Mistress Anne, and tne question of the 
divorce. We can only oii-cct attenticm 
to the letters respecting the former, at 
ii. p. 131. Cromwell's rise, the impos- 
ture of Elizabeth Barton, the arrival of 
Campeius(ii. 149), and the fall of Wol- 
8oy, all flit before us in these pages,— a 
fl^ce, and they are gone. Sadler, 
Gardiner, Bonner, the statesmen of 
subsequent reigns, made their first 
entries into public life in the service 
of the ma^uficent cardinal, and appear 
here in the outset of their career. 
Swner, polity wd ol^iaut although 


cruel, is in 1530 studving Italian whilst 
in attendance upon Woisey in his dis- 

frace, and begging Cromwell to lend 
im the Triumphs of Petrarch and the 
Courtier of Castiglione. (ii. 177.) 

And now we come to a successful 
application of the researches of the 
editor to the disentanglement of a cu- 
rious fact in literary history. Str]rpe 
mentions (Mem. i. 92) that the lung 
wrote " a lK)ok of hb own cause," re- 
specting the divorce, and he describes 
the way in which it was presented to 
the Pope and received by him. Sir 
Henrv Ellis, if we understand him 
rightly, is desirous that we should infer 
the identity of this book and an octavo 
volume printed by Berthelet, entitled, 
"A Glasse of theTruthe." This may be 
so although we do not see anv evidence 
of it, but we think he has shewn gooil 
ground for believing that " A Glasse 
of the Truthe" was unnuestionably 
written by Henry VIII., and must here- 
after be inserted amongst the works of 
that royal author. It appeal's from 
Herbert's Ames, i. 463, that this little 
book is in the form of a dialogue be- 
tween a lawyer and a divine, and pro- 
fesses to declare " tlie pure truth alone" 
in reference to the divorce. There 
are copies in the British Museum and 
in the Bodleian. Sir Henry mentions 
one fact which is stated in it^ but, 
being established to be the king's, it 
would have been interesting if he had 
given a fuller account of it. Perhaps 
he will oblige us and our readers by 
making our pages the medium of 
doing so.* 

Two letters at p. 189 and 200 give 
fresh particulars i*especting Tyndale. 
In the latter is on invitation to submit 
himself to the king's mercy, which 
brought teai's into his ejres. " If it 
would stand," he said, " with the king's

LORD STANLEY, m one of his 
recent nuignilicent speeches on the 
Com LiLw ijacstion, made a stateuieut 
aoiuewhal remarkable in a ^enealo^cal 
p<Hnt of view. His lordship stat^ in 
effect that the mstrimoniu alliances 
of the aristocracy (or landed and iu- 
ti'llwlual classes) with the conuncr- 
cial body, tended to strengthen and 
iuvigorate the fauiilies contracting 
•uch marriages. Now, I confess I feel 
pniud that one of such transccndont 
talcnl^ and such high, and deservedly 
high, distinction — a. nobleman who is 
not only descended from one of the 
oldest and most dislincuished houses 
m England, but has added fresh Utircls 
to his already illnstrious race — should 
have coime to a conclusion so preci.'^ely

forsooth, all arc ^^ desh and blood !"), 
and that the grand obj<!ct of the pre- 
sent day — '•^ the social advancement of 
the masses " ( ! !) — might be promoted 
to the fullest extent possible. 

Now, waivinff all discussion of the ex- 
tent to whidi me writers of such ex- 
hortations wish to be levelled with their 
own inferiors (thougjh I have always 
found those most anxious for ''univer- 
sal equality "" the very first to trample 
on those oeneath themselves), I smJl 
pass to the purpose of this letter, which 
IS to oalarge upon Lord Stanley*s re- 
mark. I am aware that this is a very 
imperfect way of discussing the sub- 
ject ; but I do not intend more than 
to ofi*er a few remarks, of the truth of 
which long observation has convinced 
me. A Mr. Alexander Walker is the 
man to undertake the subject thorough- 
ly. It requires more than a mere 
power of observation ; but I shall hope 
that some one who has the leisure and 
ability will undertake the thorough 
investigation of this most curious in- 
quiry ; for if my theories be correct, 
and It be proved that the prosperity of 
mankind rests on the marriages from 
which they spring, it is perfectly clear 
that hitherto we have paid much less 
consideration to the subject than it 

To make this investigation fairly, 
however, is scarcely withm the ability 
of one entangled in the interests of the 
present veneration. It must be one to 
whom t£e past and the present are 
alike ; one who can look on the whole 
nntrammelled with personal feelings, 
and ragard the world as a scene in 
which he is no actor, but merely a 

That an amazing diversity of mind 
as well as of body is inherent in the 
different oiasBes of mankind, long ob- 
flerratioii has convinced me beyond all 
craestion. It is a wide and cxj>ansive 
iM, To prr into the peculiarities of 
eterj class I therefore leave to my 
W H s ecwo rs ; for myself, I shall be satis- 
fied with noting the principal distinc- 
tkms between ute two rreat divisions 
of •* Aristocrat" and *» Plebeian," in the 
general acceptation of those words. 

That each possewes valnaWo pro- 
perties, is certain ; otherwise the nnion 
of the two wonM deteriorate rather 
than improve the breed : and I now 
9tf(te m^ ws a general role, it wiU W 

found that intellectuality, capacity, 
talent^ or whatever name be most i^ 
propriate, is always extant in the ana* 
tocracy, dormant or in action ; and that 
energy, industry, and perseverance are 
the £stinctive qualities of the sons of 
theearth, dormant or inaction.* When 
these two great and important prqper* 
ties are brought in contact, they opmte 
like flint and steel — like acid and al- 
kali ; and I will venture to aaaert thai 
meritorious eminence was never at* 
tained without their union in blood. 
This proposition is no run theory. 
What some of the following may prove, 
I cannot yet determine; bat I am 
quite sure that this is an axiom, an on* 
qualified fact. J£ thare be any sceptics 
on the subject, I shall be sdaa to near 
from them of any individual of meri- 
torious eminence, of any age or nation, 
who it can be proved was without a 
stream of aristocratic blood in hit 

I doubt not this will startle some 
of the friends of the ^ miUkm ;" but 
investigation will prove duit I am 

I shall now proceed to what I have 
observed more minntdj ; and as the 
following observationf are not y<et 
classed and arranged so well as I could 
wish, I must be pMArdoned for any re- 
petitions, &c. 

Nine generations is generally the 
extreme term that each branch of a 
family lasts, matching according to its 
contemporary position. This period 
includes its rise, zenith, and dedine. 
Offshoots may plant fresh lines ; but 
they wiU wither contemporvily widi 
the parent stem unless invigorated by a 
strong stream of plebeian blood, or 
by the exertions attendant on pursuing 
the trades and professions. 

I believe that the nature of the 
matches will determine the precise 
period of a family's existence. 

Families run tnc same career as the 
animal and vegetable kingdom. jRiey 
bud, flower, and die. Industry, energy^ 
and j>crseverance be^et wealth and 
position ; these ally wiui ability, talent, 
and refinement. Distinction and emi- 
nence are the result or issne of such 
union ; and prodigalrty, decay, annihi- 
lation, or insanity foQows. There ate

the breed and inTigorate it mentally 
and bodily. Cross marriages may tend 
to preserve families in the same pecu- 
liarities, but usually tenuinate iu ec- 
centricity, insanity, and imbecility. 
Bastards are almost always vigorous, 
both in mind and body, by reason of 
the strong diversity of class between 
their parents. Crosses should consist 
rather in difference of origin, (especially 
national,) tastes, habits, stature, and 
complexion, &c. Insanity is, of course, 
no cross with ability. 

To attain great eminence in a va- 
riety of pursuits, a varied and at once 
highly intellectual seize quartiers is re- 
quisite. Such distinguished propositi^ 
however, from their want of the olood 
which is nearest to mother earth, gene- 
rally die issueless, or leave weakly off- 
spring who do so. It is desirable 
however for the public service that 
intellectuality predominate in the 
seize quartiers^ tnouffh for private in« 
terest the reverse hmds. 

In the fifth generation families are 
generally ascendant ; and, until all the 
seize quartiers are gentle, decay seldom 
commences. No peculiarity in the blood 
is worn out entirely till the fiflh gene- 
ration from its original possessor ; and 
thus are we *' punished to the third 
and fourth generation " for the trans- 
gressions oi our progenitors, t. e. so 
long as trace of his criminal pro- 
pensities be lefl in us. In its fifth 
generation a family generally glorifies 
itself most on account of its pedigree. 
I never knew of a case where thirty- 
two ouartiers were all proved gentle, 
whicn is a remarkable evidence Uiat 
industrial blood is almost essential to 

Certain pursuits influence the des- 
tinies of families. No man of gentle 
blood succeeds in any profession or 
business in which none of his ancestors 
within the sieze quartiers flourished, 
unless, indeed, there be a combination 
of properties essential to the exercise of 
his pursuit which have existed sepa- 
ratdy among his various progenitors. 

No man of pure aristocratic ex- 
traction succeeds in any ordinary 
trade or profession. He may prosper 
in literature or the sciences ; out he 
would embrace authorship, the stage 
or swell mob, the turf or gaming 
house (just as the tastes of the majority 
of his progenitors have leaned before 

him, for intellectual pastimes, coBmo<^ 
politism, or field sports), before he 
would flourish in trade or business. 

The issue of mariners and sea ofiicers 
(no matter how eminent) are always 
weak, and frequently insane. Whether 
this is owing to the constant influence 
of the sea air, or their isolation in 
ships, and separation from the soil, I 
cannot determine ; but they- always 
are so. The children of medical 
men are always clever and healthy. 
An agricultural life tends to dignify 
both mind and body, though in ex- 
cess it creates idiotcy and stupidity. 
It always, however, tends to moralise 
the inward man. Commerdal pursuits 
sharpen the wits, and often promote 
good fellowship ; but in excess foster 
every vicious and wicked propensity, 
and engender, a monkey-like cunning. 
By commercial pursmts I allude to 
the whole set of professions which bring 
man in contact with his neighbour. 
Intellectual (scientific and Lterary) 
pursuits always elevate the inward 
man, cultivate his virtues, and prepare 
him for heaven. Such seldom leave 
any trace of themselves in this world 
beyond their works and their carcase ; 
they consume the whole of their earthly 
frame in purifying themselves for that 
state in which, despising and shunning 
all propensities of tneir earthly nature, 
they become the next class of beings 
to the angels ; for there cannot be any 
doubt that those whose whole Ufe is 
passed in the cultivation of their mind 
are those who, without knowing it, 
treat this life as a mere antecedent to 

Change of pursuits is as necessary in 
the generations as in the individual, to 
prevent monomanias ; for the constant 
exercise of an^ one is sure to ter- 
minate in insanity or annihilation, after 
great eminence is once attained. 

I might enter into further detail, 
but you probably have not space for 
it. I win just make one more remark 
before I close this letter, viz. that no 
one who argues for national pecu- 
liarities of character can by any system 
of logic argue against family peculiari- 
ties of character. Who ever knew 
of a Scotchman who was not proud, 
prudent, and brotherly ? Is there on 
the face of the earth a nation which, 
within its own confines, has matched 

more amongst its own kinsfolk ? Poes

farther limitations of the powers of a 
nnncapative will were mode by a sta- 
tute pBJSed in the 29th year of the 
reign of Charles II. to which rcfcroticc 
may be made. It was necessary, be- 
fcre lie enactment of this statute, to 
put a nuncupative will in writing, and 
to prove it by witnesses in the Spi- 
ritual Court under the seal of the or-

cupative will of which probate was 
taken in the 16th century : —

TO the interesting nucount of the 
author of the Lounger's Common Place 
Book, with which yon tiave been fa- 
voured by Mr. TvsoH, June, p. 593, the 
following particulars may be added. 

He was the son of " Arthur New- 
man, esq. of Rinswood, in the county 
of Southampton, to whom he dedi- 
cated "An Essay on tbe Principles and 
Manners of the Medical Profession, 
with some occasional remarks on the 
Use and Abuse of Medicine. By J. 
Whitaker Newman, Member of the 
Corporation of Surgeons. London, 
1783. price Ii. fid." Before this he had 
published " An Inouiry into the Merit 
of Solvents for the Stone in the Human 
Bladder," which reached a second edi- 
tion; and afterwards, according to 
Watt, in his Bibliotheca Britonnica, 
" these two Tracts were published in 
1789, under the title of 'Medical Es- 
says, with additions.' " 

In the dedication, preface, and body 
iteelf of the " Essay" above men- 
tioned, passages often present them- 
selves, wnich remind the readerof tbe 
peculiar style and manner which 
characterise the laugui^e of the 
Lounger's Common Place Book. 

These pamphleta, together with tlie 
insertion of the name of J. Whitaker 
Newman in the List of Surgeona and 
Apothecaries at Rin^ood, as recordeil 
in the Medical Hegister for 17S3, are 
sufficient to prove that he actually 
practised in thb mixed branch of tlic 
medical profession, as his father had 
also done. The illness which com- 
pelled J. W. Newman to remove to

Mb. Ubbjjt, 

BY the assistance of tiij valued 
conntr^nan and coadjutor in the 
Ycvbmirc field of genealogjr, Mr- 
Paver, I am DOW enabled to throw 
fresh l^t npon the descent of the 
I'fawaj'tes fknulj from Saville, &c. and 
on the interest of the Nevilles and 
Clsphom^ through iheni, in the nujal 
Anns. (See Prdigree, al back.) 

That the male issue of Anne 
Thwttvtea (iireviously SaviUc) is ex- 
tinct, I think there can be no moral 
doubt ; and from the reciprocal adop- 
tion of the names Greaham and Ka- 
tbarioe. hy the i»ue of Sir Henrj 
and ^^lUiam Thwairtes, I conceive 
their eommunity in the Saville nuiler- 
viVj is equallj certain ; thoueh it must 
nut be C4?ncealcd that Sir Henry 
Thwayies was twice married. That 
Frances Grexhara and Katlinrine Clap- 

ham were ulvrtiic siHtors, howe 
strengthened by the probable age, &,c. 
of the (brnier, who was certainly un- 
married at her father's death, and in 
all likelihood remained siu^e till about 
1240. Her not being mentioned in 
Lady Saville's will may be accouolcd 
for by her death; as the tearing an 
only child renders it likely she died 
soon after her maxxiaae. — The " throe 
roarrii^ea" of Sir Henry Neville arc 
alti^ther new ; but I f«d very clear 
tbcy are correct enough ; which, if 
the cose, and Sir Eaerton Brydges 
Li the originator (so tar as I know) 
of the statement, that " Elisabeth 
Greiham was progeuitrii of the Lords 
Braybrooke," — the representation of 
Grcsham is now vested in Sir J. tL 
D'Oyly, Bart. And if tie extinction 
of the male Thwayles's be allowed, 
and also the uterine sislerbood of 
Frances Gretham and Katharine Cla^- 
liam (which is well proved in its nonii- 
nal or 9|>eculalive genealogy), the right 
to quarter the Royal Anns reiaauis 
with the D'Oylys, Strongwayes, and 

I have had reason to surmise more 
than this : and I would even raise a 
question whether William Thwaytcs 
was not the father, de facto, of oC Lady 
Thwaytos"B (Anne Saville's) children. 
1 lake Sir Henry Thwaytes to have 
been an old man; and his widow's 
marriage soon alW with his young 
kinsman (who was probably attacfaed 
to his household in his lifetime) ren- 
ders the cose slightly mispidous; a 
suspicion greatly strengthened by tha 
obscure manner in which their mar- 
riages and issues are recorded (if re- 
corded at all). In the authentic 
Strangwayes pedigrees, too, no one 
has ever ventured to say which hus- 
band was father of Isabel Thwaytes, 
wife of Sir Richard Slraogwayes; 
though it is quite clear that her mo- 
ther waa the coheiress of Saville. 

The genealogy in kw is probably 
unprovable ; and, therefore, so far ua 
the regulations of the Heralds' College 
affect the case, the pedigree must stand 
as I send it. 

Youra, &c. W. D'Ori-T Bailet. 
Why Sir H. Saville's illi.>gitimat« 
daughter was christened " Greaham," 
I cannot ot all ascertain. It b uo» 
shewn, however, that htr mother waa

that in the j«at IS^d an imiuirv into

Houxe of Herbert. A like wish ] 
have long ent^rlaincd, and trust some 
one will be found to undertake the 
tsfik of looking into the stores of in- 
formation deposited in our national 
archives, as well as the inforuiatinn to 
be sained from the muniments in 
Berkeley Castle, Badminton, Wilton 
House, and other places where tlie 
family of Herbert have resitted. I 
look forward with the hope of a dif- 
ferent pedigree to any we have seen 
before of the Herberls, whL>n Mr. 
Druminond takes it in hanil for his 
magnificent work now in progress of 
publication. Your correspondent 
WiLTOMCKSiB describes the common 
ancestor of the vorious lines of Her- 
bert to be Thomas, ap Gwiliui, ap 
Jenkin, of Llansabtfrsid,* living io 
the reign of UichanI the Second, who 
Dciiuireil the cantle of Uagland, in 
Monmouthshire, by his marriage with 
Moud, daughter of Sir John Morley, 
Lonl of Kagland. Now this possession 
of Kagland 1 do not think is by any 
means a correct account of the way it 
came into the Herbert family. I should 
like to Icnow who Sir John Morley 
was, of what family he came, anil 
how he became pouessed of Ksgland. 
I believe tlie case Xa be, that Maud 
was heiress of Llansaiutfraid, and not 
of Rngland, because we find Sir John 
Bluet, Knt. Lord of Ragtoni), and 
his daughter and heir, Ebuabeth. or 
Isabel, was called Lady of Kagland, 
and married, firtt, Sir James BerkeL-y, 
younger brother of Thomas Berkeley, 
Lord Berkeley, of Berkeley Castfi!, 
and secondly, she married Sir William 
ap Thomas, alias Herbert, a younger 
son of llomas ap Gwilim, of Llan- 
saintfrud, and the Lady of Raglanil 
conveyed the estate \a her second 
husbimU ; and their son, AVilliam 
Herbert, crcBl«<l Earl of Pembroke, 
possessed Kagland, and was gmnd- 
fatlier to the lady who married Sir 
Charles Somerset, and thus the estate

Rounded to fulness now, and now less bright, 

Shrinking as ocean shrinks from stranded crew 

Whose sails flap idly since tlie tide withdrew. 

The planet seems to ebb and flow with light. 

To our own fortunes linked by some dark chain. 

We, fellow voyagers, to bring her near. 

And her dim features read, our vision strain ; 

Eager to know if on her spotted sphere, 

With hill-top rough, and smooth with golden plain. 

Dwell beings, like ourselves, of hope and fear. ^ 


Well may I mourn, nor blush to own my woe. 
Now death hath silenced that half* human note, 
Marring, sweet bird I thy green and golden coat, 
And neck, where rainbow hues would come and go. 
Dear Poll I I never shall forget thee : no ; 
Charms beyond graceful shape and tuneful throat 
Made me — a stoic deem*d~so strangely doat, 
And still bid tears, as I behold thee, flow ; 
For thou wert fond, intelligent, and true. 
And shamedst many of the lordly race. 
Who reason boast, but friendship never knew. 
Methinks thy being to some happy place 
Will yet ascend, where love shall have its due ; 
For God is love, and wants not power or space.

And I was free to go, none ever came 

More welcome to the good man and his dame, 

In summer or at merry Christmas-tide. 

Dear scenes of cheerful toil I at mom*8 first glow 

I followed the blithe mower to the vale. 

And watch*d as sank the grass in lengthening row : 

Tuneful the maiden filled her foaming pail ; 

And, when the silent fields were white with snow. 

Echo would mock the quick beat of the flail.

Clurles Ratelifle. lu jiortrayiiig se-

acton in one common cause, there 
moat neceasarilj be aoiae repetitioiu, 
and there are in this volume a good 
IDanif that might bare been avoided ; 
but, in spite of all drawback*, the book 
is nwfu] and interesting, and entitles 
its author to take rank with the best 
of the ladj historians by whose labours 
modem bteraiure is distjnguisbeil. 

In the biographies of Lord George 
Mumiy and the Duke of Perth we 
hare a full account of the enterprise 
of Charles Edward, from the landing 
of the seren men of Moidart to the 
disBat«rs of Cullodcn ; the romantic 
■dventurea of the Pretender in the 
Highland* necessarily form the subject 
of the life of Flora Macdonald ; the 
l^nl ameltieii which followed upon 
tl^ mpprei^on of the Rebellion are 
detailed in the biographieg of Kil- 
marnock, Balmerino, and Charles Rat- 
cUfie. These are all good useful points 
in EngUeh hLitory. and Mrs. Thomson 
has spared no pains in their eluci- 

Lord Georae Murray's chief quali- 
fications for his leadership of the Pre- 
tender's army were found in bis ac- 
knowledged bravery, his acquaintance 
with the nishland character, and com- 
mand oTcr toe inferior classes of that 
peculiar people: bis practiesl clever- 
neas and fertility of genius, combined 
with forethought, regularity, and care- 
fnlneas ; bis power ol endurmg all iduds 
of hardship, and of teaching and en- 
forcing the soldier-like duties of dis- 
cipline and eobriety, not merely by

precept but bj example. All these 
excellent qualities were more than 
countcrbaknced by many inRrmitieii. 
He was obstinate to excess, could 
not brook an equal in authority, was 
indiscreet in the use both of tongue 
and pen, and, wont of all, coidd not 
malnuiin a drooping cause, but lost all 
hope when affairs went badly. Such 
a uiau could not be a hero, and ought 
not to have been permitted to assume 
the command of a desperate expe- 
dition Uke that of Charles Edward. 
It was from the first a forlorn hope, 
and should have been placed under 
the orders of a commander who n< 

dreamt that any thing was unattain- 
able; one who by bis own daring reck- 
lessness could have infused into those 
around him an anticipation of good 
success even wbcu the tide of fortune 
was at its lowest ebb. Of the ebarac- 

of Perth, we possess but little infor- 
mation. That be was generous, ao- 
CompUshed, courageous, and well-tu- 
tored in the theory of war, is admitted; 
but it may be doubted whether he had 
either sufficient physical strength or 
acquaintance enough with practical 
warfare to have made a succesaliil

A mystery is thought to haiu; over 
the ncath of this amiable nobleman. 
He was wounded at Culloden, and for 
some time after the battle subsisted 
precariously amongst the mountains. 
Attet the lapse of a month or two, 
Charles Edward, standing on the sum- 
mit of an eminence in the isle of Erri- 
fort, near Lewes, beheld two frigates 
sailing northwards. He thought they 
were French, and wished that they 
should be reconnoitred. His com- 
panions declared them to be English, 
and the boatmen refused to go out. 
The Pretender was right. In one of

flhipe reached Nantes safely ; and shortly 
aflerwfurds a mmour was spread abroad 
that the Duke of Perth Lad died ou 
board of one of them at sea, and that his 
corpse had been committed to the deep, 
In tne year following, the duke*s brother 
died at Antwerp, soon after which 
4^ftiat a monument was erected to the 
tiiemory of them both, and the fact of 
the Duke*s death at sea is clearly 
iUited in the inscription. In oppo- 
sition to this account there have been 
several claimants of the honours and 
estates of the Drummonds, who have 
alWcd that the rumour of the duke*s 
deaUi was purposely set afloat in order 
to conceal nis red retreat ; that, after 
waadering about for a considerable 
jyeriod in the neighbourhood of his 
" bonny castle ana his bonny lands," 
he crossed the border and found re- 
Aqfe under the protection of Nicholas 
Limbton, esq. at South Biddick, in 
the parish of Houghton -le- Spring; 
that ne took up his abode there with 
A John Armstrong, a collier, whose 
daughter he marrieil in the year 1749, 
aiid, after being engaged in rarious oc- 
cropations of humble life, died in 1782, 
fetring a numerous family. His eldest 
ton pMed through life as a pitman, 
disregarding his noble descent ; but his 
e^est son (the duke*s grandson) pre- 
^rrcd his claim to the earldom of 
Perth, and, in proof of the story we 
have told, statea many corroborative 
drcumstances of a very curious kind. 
Whether they were fictitious or not, we 
have no moans of knowing. The proof 
seems to have satisfieil an ex parte jury 
in Edinburgh, by whom the claimant 
was sorvetl heir to his deceased great- 
tfranduncU\ Lord Edwanl Drummond, 
uo duke's youngest brother.* Mrs. 
Thomson does not state this circum- 
stance, nor docs she tell us what be- 
came of the claim. 5%c ri^lies upon

164 Review.— Mignet's Antonio Perez and PkU^ II. [Aug. 

Pertz^ secretario de estado del rey 
FeUpe IL whicli, though attxactively 
written, and composed m>m some un- 
questionable documents, contains some 
details of pure invention, and the lus- 
torical sources are not properly in- 
cUcated; however, some information 
has been gained from it— ^. An Italian 
MS. narrative, entitled, Relaziane delle 
Cose di Spagna, by Antonio Tiepolo, 
written in 1577, one year before the 
murder of Escovedo, and preserved in 
the Royal Library. It is valuable for 
the portraits it draws of prominent 
personages at the time. 

The book has been already trans- 
lated into Spanish and Grerman ; and 
the reader will observe with pleasure 
(p. ix.) a letter from the author, ex- 
messing himself glad that so able an 
English translator has undertaken it, 
which will ffive him the greater con- 
fidence in the translation. 

The following character of Antonio 
Perez, from the narrative of Tiepolo, 
will serve as an appropriate introduc- 
tion. It shews tnat he set out with 
great advantages as a statesman, but 
with the drawback of vices which 
ultimately spoiled them and ruined 

** Autonio Perez, secretary of state, is 
a pupil of Ray Gomez. He is very dis- 
creet and amiable, and possesses much 
authority and learning. By his '^reeable 
manners, he goes on tempering and dis- 
goiiing much of the disgnst which people 
would feel at the king's slowness and 
sordid parsimony .... He is so clever 
and capable, that he must become the 
king's principal minister. He is thin, of 
delicate health, rather extravagant, and 
fond of his advantages and pleasures. H e 
is tenacious of being thought much of, 
and people offering him presents.'' p. 10. 

As a contrast to this character of 
a rising minister, or at least of one 
who appeared to be in the ascendant, 
let us take the description of a de- 
clining one, the more important, as some 
sturdv apoloffists have endeavoured to 
overthrow the general testimony of 
history, for the sake of the cause with 
which he was implicated. 

''The Duke of Alva is accounted a 
dissembler, artful, and very experienced, 
hut jealous and spiteful. The lang shews 
him much good will, but employs him 
little. He has no authori^^,*-'no standing. 
Accfl^dingly, there are nw people who 

tAe wj notlM of Um« In ord^r t9 

conceal his small share of favour and his 
ill-luck, he never leaves the king.*' 
p. 9. 

In reading the last paragraph we 
are at once reminded of an ezpresaiye 
line in Johnson^s Vanity of HumaB 
Wishes — ^''And power too mat to 
keep or to resi^.** And who does 
not see a just retribution, in the i>er80ii, 
who abused his power so ferociooslj, 
being reduced to manoeuvre in order 
to preserve its fragments ? The third 
person who appears on this eventful 
stage is Escovedo, secretary to the cele« 
brated Don Juan of Austria. Philip, 
whose calamity it was to be jealous 
both of a brother and a son, made use 
of the compliant treachery of Perec as 
a spy upon the former. 

''At the same time, to become ac- 
quainted with all his brother's designs, 
and watch the intrigues of Escovedo, he 
authorized Peres, who was the ooniideat 
of the one, and the friend of the ottier, (o 
correspond with them .... to enter 
into their views, to appear to gain his 
favour for them, to speak even very freely 
of him in order to throw them (A their 
guard, and afterwards to betray their 
secrets to him. Perez sought, or at the 
very least, accepted this odious part. He 
acted it, as he himself relates, with a shame- 
Ims devotion to the king, and a studied 
perfidy towards Don Juan and Escovedo. 
He wrote letters to them, which were 
even submitted to the inspection of Philip, 
and in which he did not idways speak res- 
pectfully of that prince ; he afterwards oom- 
municated to Philip the bold despatdies 
of Escovedo, and the effusions of Dim 
Juan's restless ambition.'* pp. 16, 17. 

It is surprising how a person of 
Philip's sagacity did not suspect, that 
Perez, who submitted to act as his 
tool, would use him in return as his 
own, which he did in making him an 
accomplice in the murder of Escovedo. 
Perhaps, however, Philip did suspect 
it, or at least discovered it by the 
event, as he abandoned him imme- 
diately. What a worthless pair they 
were, appears from their letters, in 
which they have the mutual effirontery 
to act villnnottsly on principle. Perez 
says : 

** But let your majesty use good pre- 
caution in reading these papers; for, if 
my artifice is discovered, I shall no longer 
be good for anything, and shall have to 
discontinue the game. Moreover, I know

discredit the story, and to whiten a 
•••!,> ™. Plillin'o ueniorj ; but the 

aequittal has been pronounced too 
soon. M. Mignet has established the 
fact of the current history : "(Ae hut

devoted affection of the wife of Ferei, 
"goes fur nothing;" and, unfortunately,

at it, 80 that some of lier near rela- 
lioiis wanted to hiU Perez, Ranke, it 
win be remembered, has argued from 
"die absence of Spanish jealousy; he 
viU, therefore, aUow it its due weight 
when positivelj in evidence. 

** Tfafif opmion was entertained by every 
body ; it prevailed in Sptin, where more 
than eight witnesses, or different grades 
In society, deposed in court, without act- 
ing in concert or in secret, that Escovedo 
had been killed for having wanted to 
defend the honour of Prince Buy Gomes, 
n^ose servant he had been." p. 39. 

But we have the authority of Perez 
himself, unless he be set aside as a 
liar; for D^Aubigne, in his Histoirc 
UniverseUe, Amsterdam, 1626 (t. iii. 

^430), sajrs, " About this time [1593], 
iidame mtroduced to the king her 
brother, a first secretary ofSpain, 
named Antonio Perez \ . . As we 
learned from him, the king of Spain 
and Antonio Perez having become 
rivals in the affections of a ladj," &c. 
(Note at p. 42.) 

How Perez nrocured the assassina- 
tion of Escoveao by Philip*s authority, 
thus rendering his ri\^ an accomplice 
in his crime, and how Philip cast off 
Perez on finding it necessary to dis- 
avow or defend him, are well-known 
matters of history. The fact, however, 
has acquired another kind of im- 
jKxrtanoe, fixMn being adduced as an 
instance in the science of political 
•ethics. Lieber, the American writer 
on that subject, when arguing that 
^ihe state or authority cannot require 
an immoral act or permit a crime,** 
4»ys, ^Philip U. could not rightfully 
witliarise any person to murder the 
Prince of Orange, still less offer a re- 
ward. and protection acainst all future 
moleatatian; nor coiud Charles n. 
«Btlwriie the assassination of Grom- 
imIL Ko king can order any person 
•to murder another, as Philip ordered 
Perez to murder Escovedo, without 
prooess,-on aooount of weighty reasons 
respecting himself (the king) and the 
orown, and well-]^roved facts. (Manual 
of PoUtical Ethics, ed. London, 1839, 
chap. V. pp. 197, 198.) We have cited 
tlds passace at length, becauae at page 
78 M. Mignet has actually quoted 
Philip*B letter to the Prince of Parma, 
letting « price on the head of the 
Prince of Orange, avofwedly *^iii order 
to endeftTour to get rid of such a 

wretched penucions man, alreadj con- 
demned, and whom Ins doings ai^ A£ij 
condemning still more.** 

The escape of Perez isto Axi^on 
is the nesrt sulject of intereat : 

« The flight of Peres had canaedfOBead 
satisiiustion. Even Philip's ee«ut-lbo^ 
named Uncle Martin, who, like hlilUknra» 
had the privilege of spealdng freely (o Ms 
master on every subjeety and 0f ahewlMig 
himself a wise man ia seeauag to play 
the fool, said to him» in open coart, ii|poa 
the sobjieot of this eaeape : 'Sire, who Ja 
this AatoDio Peres, whose esoapa said 
deliverance have fiUed every one widi 4^ 
light ? He cannot then have baea gniUjf 
xfjoioe, therefore, like other people.' Bait 
far from taking his fool's good adrifai^ 
Philip extended the severity of hispaoMoa* 
tiotts to the innocent family of Bscea*'' 
p. 136. 

^Vhen Perez was in pison at Ssra* 
ffodsa, in order, as he aaid, to aheir tbe 
king what pledges he poasoaaad fixr hii 

" He sent to Philip the prior «f Gotec, 
to whom he had shewn, m nnslniiBitiai 
eonfidmoe, all the papem he had in hia 
possessioB; he had let hias ase thoap 
notes in the king's handwriting, whidi 
aathorised him to correspond wkh 0an 
Joan and Escovedo upon the most aaorot 
affairs of state, to alter their deq^tdies hk 
deciphering them.** p. 149. 

That part of the history which w 
connected with thelnqoisition has been 
illustrated by Llorente, to iriMm iUa 
work is much indebted. Bat we mait 
hastily follow Perez to England, whesei 
after the publication of his Batoionei^ 
in 1594, 

''The vindictive monaieh

demned to death; and (heir heads were 
fixed upon one of the city gales near

It shews the abilitv and address of 
Perez that, wherever ne went, notwitb- 
standing the reasons there were to 
discredit him, he made his way to the 
highest favour. Though Elizabeth^re*

so mueh Umm to the readier. That the

Uurger space than that of Eumpe^ maj 
have Vieen owing to arrangements 
which place the subject out of the 
proTince of criticism. That French 
ctrilization, however, should have 
been made the standard, is a trait of 
national partiality, against which it 
were in Taui to protest. Nor arc we 
aware that we should like a writer the 
leas, for not endeavouring to elevate 
his country or his countrymen. In 
flome minor points, as for instance 
when speaking occasionally of our 
William III. the feeling appears to 
have operated to a degree that re- 
quires this excuse. 

But, quitting such topics, where wc 
feel ourselves treading on sharp flints, 
let us turn to one tnat is more re- 
mote, and on which ^L Guizot*s views 
are particularly luminous,— the Cru- 

" Since the end of the seventh ceotory, 
Cbristiinity bad been stmggling against 
Mahommedanism : it had conquowd it in 
Enrope after being dangerously menaced ; 
It had succeeded in confining it to Spain. 
Thence also it still strove constantly to 
eipel it. The Crusades have been repre- 
sented as a kind of accident, unforeseen, 
unheard of, bom solely of the recitals of 
pilgrims on their return from Jerusalem, 
and of the preachings of Peter the Hermit. 
It was nothing ot the kind. The Crusades 
were the continuation, the zenith, of the 
grand struggle which had been going on 
for four centuries between Christianity 
and Mahommedanism. The theatre A 
this struggle had been hitherto in Europe, 
H was BOW transported into Asia .... 
Mahommedanism was established in Spain, 
and had there conquered and founded 
a kingdom and principalities. The 
Christians did thesame in Asia.*' — Europe,

We lay down this work with the 
decided opinion, that it is a store of 
materials to exercise the reader's

to the limits of Ispahan and Fars on 
the east. The inhabitants the author

country, lying to the south of the

'< Sh(ister,'' says the author, << is greaUy 
fallen from its former importance. Ak^kM^ 
the winter capital of the ArsaddsB or Par- 
thian kings, is a heap of mlns. The 
plough is levelling the only remaining 
mounds which point to Jonde-Shapihr ; 
while Susi, the rival of Babylon andEeba- 
tana, the vernal residence of the King of 
Kings, hides its ancient ruins under thick 
grass and waving reeds. But, even prior 
to the dawn of profane history, before the 
sun of Ninevah and Babylon had risen in 
the East, Blam, as Scripture tells us, was 
already a nation; whilst in later days, 
under the name of Siymaii, the same 
country attracted towards its rich temples 
the cupidity of the Greek and Parthian 
conquerors. With a view of rescuing 
from oblivion this once classical ground, 
the author has endeavoured to draw aside 
a corner of the veil which still covers this 
mysterious region.*'

young a man for Valerian, who was 
about 70 years old. We have next the

THE object nf this work is lo 
gire practical information founded on 
arieniific principles ; to enable a person 
to (elect planU proper for his ^irden, 
whether tueful or ornamental, whether 
for UMe or odour, and to cultivate 
them to the be^t advantage. As the 

moBI convenient wav of communicating 
this knowledu;e, the arrangement is 
Buulc in divisions accord in? to the 
month of the year. Most of uie plants 
and flowers ihat have been LBt«ly in- 
troduced, and to be commended for 


their lieauty or uliliiy, are meutioned, 
as arc also the new varieties of well- 
known species, a.1 of the rhododendron, 
rose, fuchsia, &c. Aa far as our know- 
ledge extends, the work is, generally 
speaking, to be relied on for its ac- 
curacy, and mny be safely taken as a 
practieul guide and instructor; but 
we wish to inculcate on the writer of 
ihia, at on those of other works, that 
when they mention that such and such 
plants will bear the climate of our 
open borders or lawns, they should be 
sointwlmt more particular in snecify- 
inz to what part of England they 
allude. A writer would be said to lie 
much wanting in precision, if he were 
to say of a plant that it would bear 
tbe climate of Europe ; and really the 
language whith sjieaks of the climate 
of England, is scarci^ly lees vague and 
undetermined. But this matter is of 
much importoucG : moat scarce and 
curious and exotic plants are brought 
up in the neighbourhood of London, 
and procured from it. Now, fur 
common purposes it would perhaps 
be sufficient to divide England into 
three eones or Iatitudes,~the north, 
midland, and south-western; and it 
would be easy to add some mark or 
figure to the plants by which their 
relative suitableness for the climate 
might be at once ascertained, subject 
of course to Uveal exceptions, out 
which local exceptions, atYer some 
inquiry, could all lie known. As a 
general rule, we would not grow the 
magnolia grandiAora in Derbyshire, 
Staffordshire, &c. ; but, going a little to 
the west, these plants ore to be seen very 
fine in ^'orcestersbire. Again, Ihe 
same plant as a ^atidard cannot be 
said to succeed, except in the ci 
south of Londou, or rather south -w 

that even that soft andsoutlierncUmale 
is not so favourable to them as the 
south of Devonshire. Elevation also, 
as well as latitude, should be attended 
to, as may be seen in the mrdens of 
Ili^-Clerc. However, we do not wish 
to intrude more observations of this 
nature in this place, and shall only 
further remark, that if an observing

vestiges of earth-works, nt distances 
varying from 50 to 80 yania apart, 
intersect Baildon Common in parallel

If these were constructed by the Bu-

Whetliui' llie aUuiilanl iu Cheap, in 
wtiicli there vaa a coaduif, were in any 
w»y identical with the queen's ahed or 
gtwtduie above mentioned, must be left 
&T stiMrents of the ancient topography 
of the rity to decide. La the centre of 
the floor of the building, deacribed by 
Mr. Lett, there were indications of a 
cistern or bath. The term "stundard" 
may, we think, be defined a standing 
idaoe lor viewing public diversions ; 
jDst iudeeil »s the building t«mied it 
Btitnd is erected on a race-conrse. 

Mr. Grbaell's rotes, which we class 
with Mr. Lett's commanication, refer 
h> some diecoveries in the crypt of St. 
Stephen's chapel, Westminster, which 
most of our antiquarian readers will 
retneiiibcr formed the dining-room of 
the Spraker of the House of Coiouods, 
a mo«t truly elesant specimen of the 
aroliitectiire of the early port of the 
I4th oentury. Under the original floor 
of lliis spiulment an ancient burial 

plnoewas discovered, with the r um aim 
of several ijkeletons. We need not point 
out that it was a common practice tu de- 
vote the crypts of ecclesiastical build- 
ing to sepulchral purposes. The ar- 
chitectural remains of ancient London 
and Westminster are yielding by de- 
grees to the innovatine hand of modem 
construction. The antiquary must now 
seek for such relics m crypts and 
vaulted chambers, whose obscure sites 
have for ages been their best protec- 
tion ; such, for example, are Gerard's 
Hall, the Hermitage m the Wall, the 
Korman building under Bow Church, 
&c. &c. Still lower, on a level with 
the sewers of the Great Metropolis, 
will he find the long foi^tteu and 
concealed relics of Londinium Augusta, 
now traversed by the buildings ol later 
ages, which have well nigh effaced all 
traces of the extent and direction of 
the Roman streets.

A treaty for the protection of copyright 
in books has been concluded with rmssia. 
The right of the publisher is to be the 
same in the two States ; but a declaration 
must be made in the foreign country to 
secure it. Dramatic works are included 
in this disposition. — Article 4 reduces the 
duty on the importation of Prussian books. 
All books are to be marked with a stamp, 
for recognition at the Custom Houses. 
The contracting parties reserve to tiiem- 
selves the right of excluding works con- 
trary to good morals. — Article 7 engages 
to the introduction of this stipulation into 
any treaties which may be concluded with 
otiber States. — By article 8 it is provided 
that the German States of the Customs' 
Union may adhere to the treaty.— Article 
9 fixes that the treaty shall take effect 
from the 1st September next, for five 
years, and continue, afterwards, tadtly in 
force till dissolved by a twelve-months' 
notice. A copy of every work declared is 
to be delivered to the Company of Sta- 
tioners in London, and the Minister for 
Ecclesiastical Affairs at Berlin.

In repairing (be rectory -bouse at Moat- 
ton, near Newmarket, an interesting dis- 
covery baa been made. It seems that the 
older part of the house was once a cbspel, 
and that at the west end of it was also a 
tniall chapel underground. The form of 
thp building was oblung, about 35 feet by 
IT, with a porch at tbe south-west end. 
Tbe east and west walls, above ground, 
were destroyed, doubtless when the build* 
ing was converted into a dwelling. But' 
the aide walla, which are of great thick- 
ness, and the walls of the crypt, if it may 
be BO caLed, arc tolerably preserved. In

frame of a window, but the niollions seem 
to lisve been removed when it was blocind

Sir Robert Harry Inglis, Bart., and 
Thomas Stapletoo, esq. to be his Vice-

The Central Committee of the Archaeo-

or toraue, with a bronze bowl, in which 
the collar had been deposited. They were 
foond in cutting turf in Socher Moss, 
Domfriesshire, p|['^oed upon three souare 
hewn stones. This moss appears to nave 
been, at some remote period, a forest, and 
tho trunks of large trees are frequenUy 
firand in the peat : it is only a few feet 
above the level of the Solway Firth, and 
numerous ancient relics of various periods 
have, from time to time, been brought to 
light, comprising Roman coins and other 
rooudns. The collar resembled, in general 
character, those of which representations 
have been given in the Arohaeologia, vol. 
XXX' p. 554 i XXXI. p. 517. Another 
similar ornament is in the possession of 
James Pearden, esq. F.S.A. ; but the 
design of ornament differs in eadi of these 

Benjamin Williams, esq. exhibited a 
copy of the portrait of Christine de Pise, 
ojOftlng in a MS, preserved in the King's 
LilNwry at P»risi which, as Monsieur 
rwlkii P«rl« fuppofei> wm written by h«r 

own hand. This curious limning wgip^ 
plies evidence, that John Caatal, ton of 
Christine, was not, as several Francb 
writers have erroneously stated, a moak { 
most probably confounding him with an- 
other person of the same name, who wia

markable antique vases, which had been 
sent by John Bidwell, esq. F.S.A., for 
the inspection of the Society, at the pre*

and submitted, in conclusion, thnt the dis- 
covery of a Roman altar and remains near 
the spot on which Horsley conjectured 
that the Romans had formed a camp, is 
undeniable ; and that the site of Cambo-

The Society then adjourned over the 
Whitsuntide vacation. 

June 11. Viscount Mahon, Pres. 

The Secretary read a RrCsolution of 
Council, announcing that, in compliance 
with the wish expressed by several Fellows 
of this Society, it shall, from November 
next, be the practice, so far as possible, 
to announce from the Chair at each ordi- 
nary Meeting the names and subjects of 
such communications as it is intended 
ihould bo read at the next. 

Alexander Horace Burkitt, esq. of Clap- 
ham Rise, was elected a Fellow of the 

William Roots, esq. M.D., F.S.A. ex- 
hibited two iron spear-heads, and a short 
sword, or dagger, found in the bed of the 
Thames, at Kingston; they were con- 
sidered by him to be Roman, and noticed 
as substantiating his supposition that 
Cnsar crossed the Thames at that place. 
Sir Samuel Meyrick considered these re- 
mains as more decidedly appertaining to 
the Roman period than the bronze 
weaponf found at Kingston, and ex- 
hibited on previous occasions by Dr. 

Alfred J. Kempe, esq. F.S.A. commu- 
nicated a notice of Roman remains, near 
Blechingly, in Surrey. The diatrict oc- 
cupied by the Regni, in West Kent, Sur- 
rey, Sussex, and Hampshire, presents 
many vestiges of Roman occupation. 
The researches made at Holwood Hill, in 
18S8, had tended to confirm the opinion 
that the Noviomagus of Ptolemy, the chief 
station of the Regni, was there situated. 
Seven miles southward is found the 
elevated range of downs, forming the 
northern boundary of the vsiley of Holmes- 
dale, upon which numerous fortressea are 
to bo found, probably of Roman origin ; 
and similar strongholds appear on the 
Kentish hills, eastward, towards Ightham 
and Wrotham. It would be easy to shew 
that the Holmesdale, throughout its ex- 
tent, was guarded by a continuous chain 
of ancient forts, amongst which Blech- 
ingly and Ryegate castles, subsequently 
occupied by the Saxons and Nprnans, 

may be included. On a bold eminence, 
called White Hill, near the former place, 
on the estate of J. Perkins, esa. of raid- 
hill, Mr. Kempe had recenUy notbtdl 
indications of a Roman building, idb Ae 
north side of a bye-road, leading to 
Merstham. The spot is protected bv the 
downs to the northward, in accordance 
with the usual care of the Romans in the 
selection of sheltered sites for their villas. 
The building may now be traced by a hol- 
low in the surface, about 40 ft. in length, 
and 24 ft. in breadth ; the northern end 
appears to have been circular, and there 
are remains of a party-wall; numeroos 
fragments of roofing and flue tilee, and 
other Roman materials, are scattered over 
the surface of the ground. The country 

Eeople consider these to be the remains of a 
athjwhichmighthavebeonreadily supplied 
by the numerous springs arising m the 
adjacent hills. The President stated tiiat 
he could fully corroborate the statement 
made by Mr. Kempe, in regard to the ex- 
istence of ancient earthworks, towards the 
eastern extremity of the Hoimeadale; 
having had frequent occasion to notioe 
such evidences of ancient occupation in 
the neighbourhood of his paternal eftatet , 
at Chevening. 

The Dean of Hereford, F.S.A. commu- 
nicated a notice of the burial-place of 
Joanna de Bohun, on the north side of 
the Lady Chapel at Hereford Cathedra], 
recently disclosed to view during tlie pro • 
gress of the restoration of that decayed 
fabric. In an arched recess in the wall 
is seen a recumbent efligy, under which a 
wooden coffin had been deposited in a 
grave, half the depth of which only was 
below the level of the chapel. The lid 
had been covered with linen of fine tex- 
ture, u]>on which had been sewn three 
large crosses pat<Ses, and eight smaller 
ones, formed of white satin : three similar 
crosses appeared also on each side of the 
coffin, and four large iron rings at each 
side and end. The remains had been* 
wrapped in cloth, apparently woollen, 
fastened with Htrong packthread: the 
bones were much decayed, as is usually 
the case in interments in the Cathedral ; 
but the flowing hair remained perfect, de- 
tached from the cranium like a wig. It 
was of a yellowish red colour, and so pro- 
fuse in quantity, that the prevalent notion 
of the growth of the hair after death, 
which, as the Dean remarked, had been 
entertained by him from previous obeer- 
vations, appeared to be confirmed. Tfaia 
ladv had been heiress of Kilpec, in Here- 
fordshire, and espoused one of the Bohun 
family; in the year 1327, she gave the 
churdi of Lugwardine, with the chapels 
of Llangairewi St. Waynanl*i, «ad

however, were traced by Mr. Hunter from 
the time oF her landing in Cuuiberlaod to

observes that Mary landed on the shores

nothing amongst the numerous written

Hardwick (unless she rode there in a

The iohjecC of tbij memoir wai made a

aetlBg Captain of the lloiaar frigate in 
the inmmer of 1794. He rabieqnently 
eommanded the Lynx iloop, and captvred 
nnmeroaa French merchant Tesaeli, on the 
North American station. In Mardi 17%', 
being then acting Captain of the Cleopa- 
tim fkigate, he captured TAarore, a French 
prifateer of ten goni. He afterwardi 
retnmed the command of tlie Hossar, at 
Halifax, and continned in that ihip aatfl 
paid off, about the end of the tame year. 
His adTaneement to post rank took place 
on the 1 St Aug. 1795. 

When commanding I'lTnit^ 36, he dis- 
played great firmneffs during the general 
mutiny in 1 797. He subsequently cap- 
turvd the French 18-gun corvette D^cou- 
fvrte, the brig-priTateer Brunette, of ten 
guns and eighty men, and sereral other 
armed resseU, on the Channel station. 

Captain Rowley left TUnit^, in conae- 
quence of bursting a blood-Ysssel; bnt 
after the lapse of a few months he was 
appointed to the Prince George 98, the 
iMg ship of his brother-in-law the hite 
Admiral Sir Charles Cotton, Bart. In 
the vpHng of 1801 he was removed into 
the Boadfcea frigate, and entrusted with 
the command of a light squadron em- 
plored in Quiberon Bay, where he greatly 
molested the enemy. 

In 1804 Capt. Rowley commanded tlie 
Ruby 64, successively employed in the 
North Sea and off Cadiz. Subsequently 
to his return from dience, he was stationed 
off the Scheldt ; and in Nov. 1805, was 
tppointed to the Eflgle 74, destined to the 
Mediterranean, which ship he joined at 
Spithcad. She formed part of the squa- 
dron under Sir W. Sidney Smith, cm- 
ptoved in disarming the coasts of Naples 
■nd Calabria in the summer of 1806. On 
the 11th May that year Capt. Rowley 
wnducted the attack at the capture of the 
Island of Capri ; and he was afterwards 
•ererely injured by a shell, while employed 
On shore In the defbnce of Gaieta.

near Cadiz, in AprU 1810. In Nov. 181 1 
she captared the French fKgate Corceyre, 
pierced for 40 guns, and acrantiBg 88. 
At this period Caotain Rowley wis aenior 
r^ificer in the Aoriatic. His conduct at 
the captare of Fhime, July 3, 1613» was 
highlv conrpienotts : leading fas his gig the 
first detachment of marines^ he tow pos- 
session of the fort, and hoisted the kUig's 
coloora ; and he aflerwinls bora a oon- 
micBOus part in the operations agaliist 
Trie8t«>. He evntinued to serve In the 
Adriatic until the allies were mi i tsrs of 
that sea.* 

InApril IBUhe attended IxNds XVIII.

lowing month, he obtained the niyal 
permiAbicn to accept and wear the insignia 
of a Knight of the Imperial military order 
of Maria Theresa, which had been con- 
ferred upon him by the Emperor of Aus- 
tria. He was advanced to the rank of 
Rear-Admiral on the 4th June 1814 \ and 
was nominated a Knight Commander of the 
Bath, Jan. 2, 1815. Towards the dose 
of the latter year he was appointed to the 
chief command in the river Medway. 

Sir Charles Rowley's next i^ppohitment 
was, in the autumn of 1820, to be Com- 
mander-in-chief on the Jainaica station, 
then much infested with pirates. Imme- 
diately on those desperadoes attempting 
to insult the flag of Great Britain, this 
active officer took such effectual steps that 
many vessels were captured and destroyed 
by the cruisers under his orders. Of the 
survivors of their lawless crews, about 
thirty were sentenced to death, and exe- 
cuted at P6rt Royal. He returned home 
with his flag on board the Svbille 44, in 
May 1823 ; and was promoted to the rank 
of Vice-Admiral in May 1825.

Groom of the Bed-chamber to King Wil- 
liam IV. Nov. 23, 1832; and i^p^^hited

service i>ension of 300/. was conferred upon 
him by the Admiralty, StDt, 1 , 1837. He 
attained the fall rank of Admiral, Nov. 
23, 1841. 

On the 2Gth Dec. 1842, he was appointed

wards of three months before his period 
of service would have expired.

Obituary.— ^^^amtn Robert B^aydon, jEsq. [Aug. 

Mr. Htydon was a native of Plymouth, 
where his father waa a bookseller. His 
fondness for the arts of design unfolded 
itself in his childhood. At seven years of 
age he was sent to the grammar school at 
nymonth, then conducted by Dr. Bid- 
lake ; and afterwards to Honiton to the 
care of the Rev. W. Haynes, with whom 
he removed to Plympton grammar school, 
which was formerly the place of Sir 
Joshua Reynolds's education. 

After his father had for some time op- 
posed his predilection for drawing, he at 
length gave way to his son*s wishes, who 
left Plymouth for London on the 14th 
May, 1804, and commenced his studies at 
the Royal Academy. He was introduced 
by Mr. Prince Hoare to Fuseli, whose 
exaggerations both of style aud behaviour 
he afterwards too faithfully copied. His 
first picture was commenced in Oct. 
1806, and exhibited in 1807. The sub- 
ject was ambitious, — '* Joseph and Mary 
resting with our Saviour after a day's 
journey on the road to Egypt: '' it was 
purchased by Mr. Hope, the author of 
Anastasius. His second work, " Den- 
ts tus,*' was commenced in Jan. 1808, 
but delayed, and materially altered, in 
consequence of his deriving fresh prin- 
ciples of art from the study of the 
Elgin marbles, to which he for some time 
devoted ten or twelve hours a day. It was 
finished and exhibited in 1809, and in the 
following year obtained the great prize at 
the Royal Institution. 

He next applied himself to the subject 
of "The Judgment of Solomon,'* during 
the progress of which his resources failed, 
and he continued his labours under severe 
privations. At length, it was completed, 
and exhibited in Spring Gardens, and the 
directors of the Institution voted him a 
present of a hundred guineas. He had 
already quarrelled with the Royal Aca- 
demy, or he might now have become an 

He continued however a fast friend 
with Wilkie, though the latter was a man 
of directly contrary temperament, being 
all caution, circumspection, and deference, 
whilst Haydon was alt incaution, obsti- 
nacy, and pride. Wilkie went with Hay- 
don into Devonshire in 1<^.()9, and Haydon 
went with Wilkie to Paris in 1814. There 
Haydon studied in the Louvre. Aft^ 
•n absence of two months, he returned 
home, and commenced his largest work, of 
Christ entering Jerusalem. This was ex- 
hibited with triumphant success in 1820, 
both in London and Edinburgh. 

in 1817 he fixed his residence in Lisson 
Grove, where he established a school of 
paintin g, and had several p upils.* 

* The preceding particulani are chiefly 

Haydon's ambition from the first was 
to distinguish himself as an historical 
painter. Confounding admirstiofi of great 
works with the power to achieve them, 
and mistaking largeness of size for 
grandeur of conception, he presumed 
that he possessed a genius for painting 
sublime pictures; and the senaation 
created by his early worka, e^ieeiany 
'' The Judgment of Solomon,*' helped to 
confirm this idea. But his pictures were 
too large to be hung in private rooms, and 
his treatment of Sir Geoige Beanmont 
was sufficient to alarm all the patrons of 
art. Sir George gave him a commission 
for a subject from Macbeth, intended for 
a particular place. Haydon painted a 
picture three times the required size, and 
was astonished that Sir George Beanmont 
was not delighted with the enlargement 
of his ideas. Previous to a public meet- 
ing of his friends, in ld27f when a pnMic 
subscription was made for his rdief, 
under the presidency of Lord Francis 
Egerton, Mr. Haydon gave Uie following 
melancholy account of tiie fkte of his 
great pictures : — '* My ' Judgment of So- 
lomon* is rolled up in a warehouse in 
the Borough ! my ' Entry into Jerusalem,' 
once graced by the enthusiasm of the 
rank and beauty of the three Kingdoms, 
is doubled up in a back room in Hol- 
born 1 my * Lazarus Ms in an upholsterer's 
shop in Mount-street! and my 'Cruci- 
fixion' is in a hay-loft in Lisson Grove 1" 

Subsequently *' The Judgment of Solo- 
mon*' was bought by Sir William Elford 
and Mr. Tingcomb for 700/. The Earl of 
Egremont bought his *' Alexander returning 
in triumph, after having vanquished Buce- 
phalus/' for 500 guineas ; and Lord De 
Tabley his ** Venus and Anchises," for 200 

In 1827 Haydon's pecuniary embarrass- 
ments compelled him to become aninmateof 
the King's Bench Prison ; where he turned 
his misfortunes to good account by paint- 
ing the *' Mock Election " that was held 
there. The picture was bought by Kinc 
George the Fourth for 500 guineas, ana 
its companion, ** Chairing the Member," 
also found a purchaser for 300 guineas in 
Mr. Francis of Exeter. Another picture 
of the same period was his '* Pharoah dis- 
missing Moses, at the dead of night, after 
the passover/' bought by Mr. Hunter, an 
East India merchant, for 500 guineas.' 

He now attempted portrait-painting, 
which he had previously disdained, but he 
did not study the graces enough to make him 
fashionable, and his manner of painting, 
always tending to coarseness, had become 

derived from a memoir of Mr. Haydon in 
" Contemporary Biography for 182V 
and evidently cune from himself.

historical pointing, to which he had en- 
tbuaiaitically devoted himself, would be 
encouraged in England. Be lived to see 
his anticipations realised, so far aa the art 
itaclf was concerned ; but bis hopes of 
benefiting by the result that ho had so 
strenuously laboured to bring about were 
doomed to iliiappointment. The alighting 
of Hajdon's cartoons by the Royal Com- 
mission was the death-blow to his hopes. 
From the very ontaet of his career he had 
sot his heart on being employed to paint 
pictnres for the House of Lorda ; and hia 
last eflorta were directed to vindicate his 
claima to this diaCinction, by carrying out 
the plati he conceived thirty yeara before.

by popular support. As it '^was, his eyes 
were opened to his lifelong delusion of 
idcnutifying his own auocess with the pros- 
perity of what he called « high art." 

At the coroner's inquest held on the 
body of this ill-starred son of genius, his 
daughter Miss Mary Haydon stated that 
die found him dead on the floor of his 
studio on the mominc of Monday, June 
22, after returning m>m accompanying 
her mother part of the way to Brixton. In 
this state, the body was shown to the 
jurr, stretdied on the floor, immediately 
fai m>nt of a colossal picture (Alfred the 
GrMt and the first British Jury), on 
which the artist appears to hare been en- 
gaged up to the period of his death, his 
idiite burs saturated with blood, in a pool 
of which the whole upper portion of the 
body was lying. The head partially rested 
upon his right arm, and near the latter 
were lying two razors, the one in a ease, 
and the other smeared with blood, half 
open, by its side. There was also near 
the same spot a small pocket pistol, 
which had been recently discharged. He 
was dressed with great neatness in the or- 
dinary attire whidb he wore while engaged 
in painting. His throat had a frigh^ul 
wound, extending to nearly seven inches 
in lengtii, and there was also a perforated 
bullet wound in the upper part of the 
scalp OTer the parietal bone. The most 
singular circumstance, however, in con- 
nection mth the melancholy affair, was 
the extraordinary and careful arrangement 
of the room and the articles therein. Mr. 
Haydon had placed a portrait of his wife, 
to whom he was devotedly attache^, on a 
small easel, immediately facing his large 
picture. On an adjoining table he bad 
placed his diary, which he seems be had 
kept with much care for many years past. 
It was open at the concluding page, and 
the last entry ran thus — 
**" June 22. God forgive me, Amen.

On the 30th June a meeting took place 
at the chambers of Mr. Serjeant Talloardt 
in Serjeants' Inn, to devise some means of 
providing for the widow and daughter of 
Mr. Haydon. Liord MorpeUi presided, 
and among the resolutions were the fbl-

controversies in which he was sometimes

stating that the Queen had been pleased 
to grant Mrs. Haydon a pension from the 
Civil List of 50/. a-year, and desiring tliat 
his own name might be put down for 100/. 
as a contribution to the proposed sub- 
scription. It was also stated that Lady

to Mrs. Haydon out of a fund in her con-

found that a son of Mr. Haydon, who 
beld a situation in the Customs, was of 
sufficient standing to receive promotion, 
immediately gave him a step in rank. 
Another son, Frederick, is in the Royal

Very many architects perhaps would 
hare done the same, but it would be well 
if all were alike scrupulous. 

The building aboTe mentioned garc rise 
to the acquaintance and long-tried friend- 
ihip which existed between Mr. Alexander 
ana Sir Francis Chantrey. On Mr. 
Alexander's applying to his friend Flax- 
man to recommend him a young artist to 
model busts of the four British Admirals, 
Howe, St. Vincent, Duncan, and Nelson, 
to place in Inigo Jones's hall there, Flax- 
man observed, *' There is a young man 
who has a colossal bust of Satan this year 
in our Exhibition ;. go and sec it. He'd 
do them well and thank you ; he has much 
talent, and is looking up for employ." 

An intenriew soon tooK place. Chantrey 
gladlj undertook the commission, saying 
that he should be satisfied with any money 
remuneration, as the doing them for such an 

institution would introduce him to notSoey 
and be quite a sufficient payment. Ten 
pounds each was, however, the price egreed 
to on both sides ; and there the b«fts 
stand, and are quite an earnest of the 
Sculptor's future fame.

kindred subject to one which has, ha more 
recent times, given occasion for much dif • 
cussion, ris. *' a coIujmi to TVelfon.*' Hie 
young architect was at that time making a 
design, in competition, for a monnment to 
be erected to Ndson on the tea shore In 
Norfolk. They will be found in the note.^ 

Although Mr. Alexander had, for many 
years, left die profession, he did not ceaae 
to take a lively interest (so far as frequent 
and severe indisposition permitted), in 
everything connected with it, especially in 
those gigantic works of modiem times 
which have shrivelled former laboura into 
comparative insignificance. 

His latter years were passed in the 
boiom of domestic and social ties — his 


• Letttrt ^ Sir F, OUtnirtp, 

Dkar Sir, — If you place a statue of Lord Nelson on your column, it should be 
large and of substantial materials, not of thin plates of metal, and it should be the 
principal ornament of the monument — ^magnificently grend, not one diameter only of 
the shaft, as in the Trajan and Antonine columns, because in them there is a proftision 
of ornament, of which the statue forms only a very small portion. These works are 
in the florid style of art, which cannot well be accomplished in this country ; nor are 
they suitable to the climate. 

" I should say adopt the severe and grand style — what you are deficient in in detail 
make up by quantity ; if you introduce basso-relievos of sea fights you need no ships' 
prows on the sub-plinth ; and I would construct it in such a manner that it should 
wear to the very core. Make the ornaments few in number, but let them be English, 
intelligible to the meanest capacity — you have nothing to fear from classical dunces. 
These are the true sentiments of your sincere friend, 

** F. L. Chantaky, 

«• 7b J/r. Daniel Alexander, Jun,'' •* Goubton-st., 9 Feb., 1815.»' 

Again, on the same date, he says : — 

" As to your design for the column to be raised to the memory of Nelson, I am 
afiraid you are in danger of falling into too many parts, of perfecting the detail and 
leaving the /irei and grand principles undigested. The first object is to make it 
applicable to Lord Nelron, and to fjord Nelton only.* 

*' Architecture cannot do this without the aid of sculpture, and common eense says 
the prindpnl sculpture of the monument should be the Hero to whose memory it is 
raised, and in tiie garb in which he won his renown, marking distinctly the period and 
the nation to which he belonged. It may be said this will not be classical I say it 
will be classioal if it be elegantly natnral. We must no longer raise monuments to 
the Greeks and the Romans. The Greeks did not rear monuments to the Egyptians 
or the Pertians, but to their own countrymen, and to the gods of their popular 
bdiflf. I ooold lay much more on this interesting subject, but have not time now.*' 

♦ « In EdUibvirgh a column is erected they say to the memory of Nelson, but no o&« 
kaowi it notU be ii told.'' (This gUadee to the monument on the Calton Hill.)

He was the son of a dissentiDg oiinisler.

and L'nitod Serrice GaMtte. He wrote 
s good deal under the designations of 
Father Ambrose and The Wanderer, aa 
well BB that of Tbe Old Sailor. His sea- 





originality : and the amoont of adienture 
and charaeCeriBtic truth in all bji natal 
iceuea and portraits will long transmit bii 
fame to British seamen, and the nation at

Uiing also served in the Inreitigator 
varreying vessel, and the Swan cutter ; 
(rat aomewliat later be commanded the 
Tme Briton hired armed schooner, cnrry- 
ing deapalchef under Lord Keith at the 
nomeotouienof 1613. The war having 
terniiuted left him unemployed, and his 
Utenry aspirations then prevailed over all 
other objioln. He wont to Demerara, 
where he edited the Demersra Gazette, 
and OB his return to England in 1823, 
pobliahed hia ArsC succesaful eflbrti as a 
chranieler of natal "yams," with the 
GUe of "The Greenirich PensionerB," in 
the Literary Gazette. Hit next Inmsicion 
waa to br editor of the Notlingham Mcr- 
cnry, wtucli he conducted with inoch 
abiUty on liberal or Whig pHDclplei tram 
the antnan of 18^ to tbe spring of 1841. 
In tbiaitatioD, as in every other, bo never 
forgot the spirit which ought to breathe 
tbrongbonl every department of literature, 
bnt in Ihe midst of angry and violent 
polities presened tbe feelings of gentle- 
manly respect, and thus conciliated the 
approbation of all ranks and parties in 
and near Xottingham, — from Lord Ran- 
cUlle, Colonel Wildmao, and Mr. Mus- 
twrs, and the CoriwratiDii and dlisens, to 
tbe poorest band working at his press. 

Aj an author, his prodactions o<^upy a 
broad space. Among them were " Land 
iBd Sea Tales," "Tongh Yams," " Walks

Manse-Trap." "Hamilton King." " Jem

Like the vast majority of bis order, h* 

uied in harness and in poverty — all hia 

toils filing to do more tbau support him 

in decent haniility and wasted health, 

id the Literary denied needfiil repose to recruit hia 

igth, and reelore him to useful labour 

He bad seen much of Ihe wotid in every 
cliioe, and his better writings lack nothing 
of Che powers of Smollett, whom he most 
nearly resembles. In tbe common inter- 
course of life and all his literary concerns, 
he was the most atraightforwaid represen- 
tation of a firm -purposed, warm-hearted,

Si, John*$ Oati^ ClerhmwelL^Vft 
have received as additional contributions 
to the repairs of this venerable ttructure, 
dnce our last, from Bolton Comey, esq. 
M.R.S.L. lOi. and from C. £. Long, 
esq. 5#. 

A. Z. inquires whether any correspond- 
ent can explain the initials, A. £. A. O. 
which are appended to each of Dr. Parr'i 
Dedications to Burke, Lord North, and 
Fox, inaerted in hli Edition of Bellen- 

M. wishes to know the authority of the 
term " Very Reverend *' as applied to 
Deans of Cathedrals. In an insoiption on 
the tomb of a Dean of Lincoln, who died 
fai the early part of the present century, he 
ia termed <*The Reverend Shr Richard 
■Kaye, Bart. Dean of Lincoln.'' When 
M. resided in the University of Oxford, 
37 years ago, it was the practice to pray 
for *' the Reverend the Dean,*' the Canons, 
^. of Christ Church. It would not be 
difficult to enumerate other instances. 

W. T. P. S. writes, "A bronze Celt has 
been lately found, embedded in clay on the 
Oxenham estates, South Tawton, about 19 
miles from Exeter. It is without loop, 
•nd has the grooves, or places in the up- 
per part for inserting two pieces of wood, 
as a handle or haft, lashed, no doubt, 
with cord or bandages. At Sittingboome, 
Kent, Jan. 18S8, four Celts and a gouge 
in bronae, or bell metal, were found in 
an urn. Those dboovered near Attle- 
borough, Norfolk, were in oompany abo 
with gouffes and other implements.— 
(See C. R. Smithes CoUectanea, No. 7, 
pp. 105, 6.) Hence, it ia supposed they 
were workmen's tools, not warlike wea- 
pons. France and Germany boaat of 
these ehiseli as well as Britain. A re- 
markable fkct has lately come to light. 
Mr. Ralph Sanders, of the Exeter Bank, 
in whose possession is the Devon Celt 
above noticed, informs me that he has 
a spear given to one of our travellers 
by the ** King" of Madagascar ; one end 
of which is the usual lance head, or 
point, common to all spears; the other 
has a Celt fixed on each aide in grooves, 
identical with the one now under discuasion, 
and with which the natives of that island 
used to flay, skin, or degiubate the beasts 
killed in their hunting excursiona. Have 
ire at last come to the knowledge of the 
Cilt as a cognate instrument, once com- 
mon to the great family of mankind. 

The same correspondent states, that it 
li proposed to set up a brass plate in St 
Lawrenee*s Clrareh, Exeter, to the me- 
mory of that ill ufid loyaliitt Colettri 

JoKM PiNxvPPQVXB, who WM bcheadcfi 

by Cromwell's order, 1 6th May, 1655, 
in this city, together with Col. Grovb, 
of Enford, eo. Wilts, in Exeter Castle, and 
interred very privately near the chancel, 
in St. Lawrence's church. A brass plate 
with the well-known inscription, '* In 
reitituendo Ecclesiam, in asserendo Re- 
gem," &c. exists to Grovk, in St. 
Sydweirs church. But poor John Pen- 
ruddocke, (of Compton, Wilts) haa been 
overlooked. The offence waft, appearing 
in arms for Charles the Second ; and the 
unhappy prisoners, along with many 
others, were captured at South Molton, 
in this comity, by Col. Croko» who broke 
faith with them after solemn promises. 
Jones, a connexion of Ciomwell, waa par- 
doned. For particulars, see laaacke'f 
Hist of Exeter, pp. 10— 16; Ludlow's 
Memoirs ; Hoare*s Modem Wiltshire; and 
Sir Richard Steele's Letters of Penrud- 
docke to his wife after condemnation. A 
portrait of him is given in some old copies 
of Clarendon, young, and in armour. 

Mr. D*Otly Baylst begs to correct 
two or three passages in his latter on 
Physical Genealogy in our Magasine af 
last month. Page 151, lat col. 3 let line, 
for "person*," read "person;" page 
152, Ist col. 2d line, for " eron marriages,** 
read " in/tfr-marriages.*' Ibid., 40(h line, 
insert "Me" before "39 qmmrtiertJ* 
Same page, bottom of 2d coL, there ia an 
obacurity and imperfection, which ought to 
be removed in ftivour of a clearer expla- 
nation of the statement, aa follows : 

" Who ever knew of a Seotchmaa who 
was not proud, prudent, and brotherly ? 
Do not these properties mark the Scotch 
almost without exception, whether we 
view them separately as men and aa fami- 
lies, or whoUy as a nation ? It ia ao ; 
and the reason is, because withhi their 
own country they are the least mongrel 
race of the earth, and have for ages been 
more exclusive in their matrimonial al- 
liances than any other — ever matehing 
among themselves. Thva the Scotch 
nation is rather to be regarded as (me 
great family^ for every member of it 
may claim a common origin ; and ao in- 
tensely amalgamated haa become the 
blood of ita original foimders, by the re- 
peated intermaniagea of their posterity- 
while seldom or never matching into other 
nations— that, however different their 
individual patriarcha might originally be» 
their properties have since got thoroughly 
mingled, and now inseparably united; 
and are indelibly imprinted on every ona 
of their deseendants as a general, tfaooipi 
mast dittiaetlTe, n^tal and moral cha< 



Th« Earlff Frmch Po»U. By the R»v. Francis Cary, M^. 1846. 

NAPOLEON used lo say of the history of France, that one might 
write it in a hundred Totumes, or in two ; in a hundred volumes, if you 
entered inio all the details ; in two, if you gave a general view of the 
lubject. This is true of all history -, and one might add that it la desirable 
it should be written both in fulness and in abridgmeot. But if it needs 
the learning and patience of a Benedictine monk to execute the former 
plan, it mould require nearly the same virtues and acquirements in his 
reader, lo enable him to profit by them. Besides, one is as likely to lose 
oneself iu the details of a large book, as in the intricacies of an extensive 
forest ; one may wander from the straight ]iath,aiidbecome bewildered by the 
multitude of objects aronnd us. It is not every one who can cut out a way 
for himself: and it is as well to know nothing at all, as only to know a number
