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

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

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

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

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

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

publisher to a library and finally to you.

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

TN tioies of penl tod alarm, wheD* £)r wife and fiilutarjr

pe fraftnued by the arufices of wicked mcp, and the tri- 
impbs of moral virtue to bq for a while fufpended, the 
fDtnd cap reft upon op b^fe fo ftrong, or feelings fo confot* 
lafcoqTf as the cooidouioefs of having done its duty. 

VTA fudb- emotions Mr. Urban enters upon a new year ; 

aiidy although fcmcv^hat deprefled, in common with all 
thofe not pfofelytes to a new .philofbphy, which laughs to 

:'fcorn the better iympathies of the heart, he looks bac|c upon 

. bis labours of the year that is; paft^ with a manly confidence* 
He boldly avows, that no principles can be imputed to hitn 
but fuch as neceitarily proceed from loyalty as a ftibjed):^ 
benevolence as a qian^ imparcialicy as a critidc, and a ge* 
neral love of genius and talents wherever they appear. He 
has ever a&ed, and ever will aft^ upon a fyileqi of conduft, 

' which, equally defying the ikifinuacions of prejudice> ma- 
lignity, and difappointmexlt, at once elevates and fecures the 
mind, firom the reach of nifean and contemptible paOions. 
At th6 iame time, therefore, that he repeats his acknow- 
Icdgenoenls to* the publick, for the undiminiihed fuccefs 
which ftill continues to accompany his exertions, be again 
holds forth his accutlomed Invitation, without didinftion of 
feft or party, to all who may think proper to exercifc their 
talents, in whatever purfuk, -for the elucidation of what is 
obfcure, or the promotion of what is ufeful, in any branch 
of Science or the Arts. Neither will he take his leave 
of the Numerous cjrcle whofe friendfliip is his pride^ 
and whofe afliftance he may boaft, or of that publick whofe 
approbation damps its valued fantftion on his labours, with- 
out offering his ferious prayer to the Father of Good, that 
all forrow for p4ft, or terror of future calamity, may be 
fpeedily obliteraied by the return of peace, the extindlion 
of animofuies, the oblivion of injuries, and the circulation 
of benevolence to an extent, which may embrace every 

quarter of the globe,

1 have dooC| at this diflance of timej it

continue to give you, the befl which 
ever could be had, and that 11, the un- 
equivocal exculpation of the gentleman 
on whofc memorandum this calumny 
liat been fabricated. Had yon. Mr. 
D'lfraeli, related your anecdoic with 
that moderation and modefty, which a

might hafc been (hocked ar ynur narra-

being dete^ed, fie was txcMed tbe

done their duty, which }ou can hav^ no

and that difmiflal would have been en-

Even the learned Lowh himftif foigeia 
it; before the conclufioi of his Gram-

this example in his own words : ** H«d

Common, «bout three miles from 
Wendover, by a labourer who was 
(Sieging the ground, a Roman image. 
Upon hearing of this, I went on pur-

and cotintennnce are very exprefTive; it "

the proptriy granted is fptcifitd, all by

the ei'ate or intcrcft the granter is to

upon its head ornanicnred with pearls, 
and its vcOmcnt is inlaid with purple. 
The comppfiiion of tiiis image appears 
to he copper, of conHderable thicknefs, 
and waflied with gold. It is about eight 
or ten inches in length, and remaikably 
well proportioned. It appears to roe 
thnc it has been an obje6l of adoration,

Mr. Urban, Jan, \$. 

I AM happy at feeing in your lad to- x 
lume, p. 1081, the attension of your 
readers called to a fubje£^ well worttiy 
their reoft ferious conTideracion. The 
wretchedly debated ftate of our copper 
coinage, and the quantiiy of counterfeit 
half- pence, that are To plentifully pour- 
ed upon the publick, have long, and 
loudly demanded the (lri£^eft notice and 
interference of the (^egifljture. The 
inducements held out 10 the Birnrirtg- 
ham ai lifts, and the amatine gains to 
be acquired bf th<s forged fabiicaiion, 
are clearly and ably ftated by your in- 
genious correfpoiident ; and it is ob- 
vious tbac» ui)t J Gove/nment takes up- 
on it to give us fome redrefi, the evil 
ivitl go on continually incre<ifingy to 
the great decline of the An(, and the 
infamv and degradation of our natiopal 
character. 

it i^ noty however^ to purfue the fub- 
j/tBt of the copper money that 1 trouble 
you with this letter ; it is to offer a few 
repacks <>a the flate of our coinage ia 
general. 

To a perfon accuflomed to examine 
ihe Bne maiked heads and exquifue re- 
verfes of the antient medals, the prc- 
ieikt mean workmanlhip of our coins is 
tiuiy grief ous ; but it is not with fuch 
elegant models that I mean to contrail 
'thtmt J wiA only to look back to the 
general condition of our money for fome 
of the late reigns, and to sfk why, when 
the other Arts have been in progrellive 
advancement, the med;illtc (hould fo 
mifcrably have fallen off? The iclpef^- 
abkt and, in fon.e inltances, beautiful 
fpecimens that have ifl'ued fiom the 
Mint through a fucceflion of princes 
from Charles 1, refl?€t the faireU cre- 
dit on the Englilh coinage. The pieces 
of Charles and James II, and particu- 
larly the fine half-crowns and faithmgs 
of Queen Anne, lay claim to diAin- 
guifhed* commend'.tioni and the very 
creditable coins of George I, and II, 
fliew that it was not till the reign of his 
prefent MajtrAy, that our money ap- 
pe^rs in fuch bafe fabrication. It is. 
now worfe than it h<is been for the laA 
1^0 years; and every one muA remark, 
that the guineas and (hillings of our 
noft gracious fovereigo do not difplay 
more chara£ler or relief than the thin 
pieces of our older moflirchs* 



It is true, our gold is kept pcrfedly 
up to its Aandard «nd pur tyi and it 
may perhaps be faid that, from its ra- 
pid circulation, and frequent leturns to 
the melting pot, its workmanfliip is of 
little confequence. Yet furely, Mr. 
Urban, as illuArative of the flate of the 
Arts, and for thccredit of the nation, 
and as intercAing to the curiofity of fu- 
ture times, it moA forcibly demands an 
improvement iii this refpefl. Our fil- 
ver, however, is fo worn ai>d defaced 
as to be much below its Aandard valut 
(a ihiUing being intrinAcally worth little 
mere than %d,)\ and, as this is mora 
fiattonary among u>, and more confined 
to home circulation^ the beauty of its 
fabrication ought to be an obje£^ of pub<« 
lie concern. In fuch a Aate of dtpre- 
ciatton rco, the filver money holds ouc 
a very Arong temptation to the forger. 
Would it not, therefore, be advifable in 
Government, even in a commercial 
view, to call in this worn-out coin, and^ 
in imitation of King William, ifTue out 
a general re- coinage? But, for God's 
fake I do not let us have fuch pieces as 
the late ihillings of his moA gracious 
MajeAy s which, of all coins I ever faW| 
are the moA aukwaid and inelegant. 
The copper money might be greatly and 
eafily reformed by dies of fuperior 
workman(htp$ and, bad Mr. Bolton'e 
coinage taken place, as the publick was 
led to expcfi, from the very beautiful 
fpecimen of his pattern- halfpenny, U 
would fooB have put a A op to the proli- 
fic exertions of the other Birmingbam 
miiMufii&urirs, 

it is not to be fuppoCed that any ob- 
fervacions will have effect after what 
lias been fo ably urged by Mr. Pinker* 
ton, in his accurate and very iogeniouf 
EAay on Medals. But, if ever the at- 
tention of our rulers (hould be awaken- 
ed to the fubjcA, the whole dcfi^jn an4 
execution of our coins ought ro under- 
go a thorough reformation. The head 
fhnuld be exprcfifed in much bolder re* 
lief, and in a more eafy and portrait" 
like form. The aukward legend of 
initial letters Ihould be altered to a mor^ 
Ample title. And, in the name of all 
the Arts, let us endeavour -to tbrovv 
away the unmeaning and infipid reverfc 
of the arms. InAead of them, jet fomf 
hiAorical fubjt£l be adopted, or elfe 
fome figure or device emblematic of our 
agriculture, commerce, or other na» 
tional chara£^eriAick. And might no(

My Lords and Genclemen, 
Thouigh F hare publicly sod ingenu* 
ouflv acknowledged, that I was once a 
member of ^he fame Society with the 
geotlcman who has brought me to an 
eiamination before this court, yet I beg 
leave to offer e few reintrka reijpeding 
my condud, in order to ebvtate tho^ 
roifconcepcioos which fome people maf 
derive from my conceffiont. When I 
fird joined that Society, we calmly and 
moderately ^ropofed to offer our fenti* 
menta vpoo a Parliamenury Reform i 
we wiflied to propefc our opinioni with 
the utmo(l loyalty to hit majcfly't perfqn 
and government, and a refpe^ful dcfe* 
rcnce to the wifdom of the Parliament at 
that time aflembled. We did not arro- 
gate to ourfelvei the liberty .of dilating 
to cur fuperiors; we only wiflied to 
propofe certain hints and confideratione 
for the mature deliberation of our re* 
prefentativei, who, we were Cenfible^ 
were much abler judget of the propr ie* 
ty of a political reformation thianr our* 
felves, in confequcnce of their long ex* 
pericnce, their learning, and abilitiea. 
We Oiou'd have thought it an inftance 
of confummate aflurance, if our Society, ' 
compofcd of country gentlemen, mer- 
chants, and traders of various deaomi- 
nations, had attempted to inftrud or in- 
fluence the. conduct of men, who bad 
been long vcrfed in parliamentary dif* 
quifitions, and political wifdom. 

Though we propofed to folicit the 
Government for an* AN K UAL PARLIA- 
MENT, yet I myfelf, and man/ of our 
members, were very far from coming 
to any certain conclufion on that fubje£t. 
'We coofidered, that a general eledioa 
ufually produces riots, dninkcnhefsy 
biibery,, perjury, quarrciline, fighting, 
rancour, and animofity, wherever ttt ' 
influence extends; that fathers, bro- 
thers, Ions, and other relations, are. 
frequently divided into oppofiie parties, 
and from that moment become invete- 
rate enemies to one another. If thefc 
fccnfes of confulion, druakennefs, and 
hoftility, were to be repeaud every ycar» 
annual parliaments, we were inclined to 
apprehend, would be deftni€^ive to th6 
morals, the peacei and happinefs, of 
fociety.

With rcfpcft to VRiVEKS al sup- 
VftAOBf it was likcwife a l'ubje£t on 
which we wert by no meant agreed. 
We eoafidcRd that, if the manuh^lu- 
riag towns in Tariont pant of the king- 
dom, /!ich at, Birmingham, Man chef. 
ler, and Sheffield, were difturbed by 
anniud eleAiont and miverfal fuffrage^ 
their fnivilegCy inflead of being an ad- 

Tantage, would he a cvrfe. Their in- 

duftry woold he inicrrupted, their mo- 

|»Ii depraved, and thcrr good neigh- 

honrbood, peace, and happineft, totally 

fahvertad.- We confidered char, if men 

ra thelofM^ cladet of fociety were fo- 

lidted for their Totcs, they would be 

tempted to receive bribes from the can- 

didaua. They would, at leai^, be di- 
verted from their refpedive employ- 
ments, and intoxicated at erery ale- 

houfSe in the town \ and, fo far from be- 
ing proper judges of the abilities or the 

virtues of the candidates, tbey would 

be difpofcd to give their votes to the 

man who diftilbuted his guineas with 

the i^reateft profufion, or treated ihem 

with the mpft hogfheads of ale. We 

could fcarceiy believe, with common 

fenic, that fuch pcifons ought, in pni- 

dencc, to be intruftcd wich an ele&ion 

for repf efentatives in parliament, or that 

chcf would ever make a wife, difcreet, 

or judicious choice. It would be na- 
tural to exped, that fuch condituents 

would •\t6L fots and libertines, rather 

than men of integrity and virtue. It 

could never enter into the heart of any 

coofiderate man to believe, ^hat 558 

members, ele^^ed by the moft ii' iterate 

and the moft unprincipled men in (oci- 

ety, would be more wife, more virtu- 
ous, more diligent, and more cdnf'cien- 

tious lA the difcharge of their parlia- 
mentary duty, than 558 members elc^- 

ed on the prefent plan, it is not to be 

imaeiacd, that a gentlemaiH who treats 
his frieada and alfciciares with the rab- 
ble at the Blue Lait, the Horfeflioe, the 
Spotted Dog, the Magpie, the Crooked 
Billet, the Jolly Topers, or the Hole- 
in»thc*Wall, will be a man of more in- 
tegrity and political knowledge than one 
who is cholen by iony or fifty perfons 
of property, or even by one who has a 
borough at bis difpof'il. The veiy (up 
pofition is ridiculous, and thfe czpe6ta- 
tion vifiooary. No wife or good man 
would wifli to be introduced into par- 
liaoiettt by the tumultuous approbation 
of the rabble, but by a fobcr well-or- 
dered ele£kion. And men arc not im- 
prof ad by aMiual Iccnesof debauchery. 



but by long experience in parliamentarj 
debates, and a conftant attention to tho 
important offices of a fenator. As the 
rabb'e are more numerous than men of 
a fuperior chara£(er, all ele£lions would 
of courfe be determined by thofe, who 
are leaft capable of judgine, leaft qua- 
lified to appoint a reprcfentative, or 
make a proper difcrimination betwcea 
merit and demerit; and, as men of no 
property, comparatively fpeaking, have 
no intereft in the great political con« 
cerns of the nation, it can never be ex« 
peded that th«y wil(^ be folicitous to 
make a difcreet and prudent choice. 
The inevirable ronfequence of fuch n 
fcheme would rather be a deterioration

So far our deliberations were mattera

The time when thefe points were dif-

By the d«duCiiriDt drawn from one or

hnve been ufhered into the vvoild 
under alt the influence of great names 
and pompous experiments, the phi'ofo- 
phical, or rather the chcmico-philofo- 
pnic.l, world has been infatuated. 

Having (hewn, Mr. Uiban, in many 
f.rik-.nj^ ifllanccs, how vcrjr prcp.oilc- 
rout a c the opinions •( rur m(.dcrn

ttie dangerous inno rations which Dr. 
Beddoes and others are introducing, on 
the lU?ts of the modem French theoi y, 
into the pratbqe of pbyfuk. 

In realonmg on the <un£lion of refp:- 
raticn, let us take f^r »n example that 
very ulcful ftnimal tne SHLEP, whofc 
nutriment taken in by the inuuth is lo 
f ery iimple, confifl'ng entirely of com- 
n'on grals, which is pnnc;p«lly f»»rai«d

I'^.fl'eli'cs a large c\\t^ for the puipolc of gmious 3cji;i! plulofopliers fay, they are

gat it the bifi:* of all acids, fo as to be 
capable of turning thofe phiogidic bo* 
diet, pbofphoius and (ulphur, into the 
phofphnric end vitriolic acids. And 
hence it mud tc\\< w, Mr. Urh^p, that the 
blood of the Qicip inuft be forncd noc 
orly of an acefcent vegetable, but of 
tins acefcent principli^ or oiLvgtnous 
gas ?i{o. And hence, unqueAionably, 
the blond of the flieep ougl.t to be the

Hut, before we ado|jt rliit abfordity, 
let us for a moment enquire t^-hitt the 
animal is formed of : irwi'i he found ta 
be blood, booe, mu'cles, and tar, whicU 
are cf a niiture dirc£)ly oppolirc ti> that

after palling through the lun^s, be* 
come red gUibules j and I believe every 
phylican mult n6'7v agree wi:h me, that 
the red !',Iobules «ire formed in the lutip^ 
from the innuecce of the air on the 
blood. It will be worth while to confi- 
der their formation. Tiic lati; very in* 
genious and much-to-be- lamented Mr. 
Hcwf'on found them of the fhipe of a 
guinea, (uimming in the Ivmph, with 
an oily rcptiifive qualitv, tlie time as oil

that hat not} and I chmk the putrid 
efrg will briog them all to their ItnTet. 
To fuch very learned and iDgeniom 
pbilofjphers as I have to contend with 
I can otFer no other remedy. And I 
think, aher fuch a dofc, they rnuft b<: 
convinced, and agree wiih me, that the 
air, this wonderful acidifyhg primtipif, 
turns bodies to an aikahfctnt and not to 
an acid ^Titt ; at ieafV, 1 am certain that 
their (lomacht will //#/ it. But, if the 
(lomach (hould not bring the head to a 
proper degree of intelligence, let them 
exercife the olfa^ory nerves. l*he 
nofe being nearer the heqd, it is pofliUic 
they may difcwtr that the fmell of rot- 
ten egg» is juft the fame as that of he- 
patic ^as ; but, according to the new- 
fangled theories, a rotten egg, from the 
afiion'of pure air, ought to have the 
fi^ll of the vitriolic acid, the reverie 
of hepatic gai. But the e^p, before it 
was expofed to the air, confined of pure 
mild lymph, or mucus, and, by eitno* 
fure to the air^ it becomes highly phlo- 
giltic. Nay, according to Dr. Prieflley's 
abfurdities, this fimple mucus, when 
expofed to the atr, gives to it an im- 
mcnfe quantity of phlogiflon, or in- 
flammable air. But in reality this mu- 
cus, after having been ezpnfed to the 
air a proper time, becomes fo putrid as 
to confianrly emit an intolerable llench, 
(imilar to that of hepatic gas; which 
our modern thcorifts do allow, to be as 
highly phlcgiftic as inflafnmable air. 
But it mud be cicsr to every one thsr, 
ai the nnimai fubflance is /ormed from 
vegetable acid fucd* and pute air, be- 
coming of a rich o\\i nature, the great 
ofBce of the air muft be to alkalize and 



lymph, mufcular fibres, cellular mem- 
brane, oily fat— fubftances which are 
everv one of them of a high alkalefcent 
quality. And, if the animal after death 
be ezpofeil to the intlu\:oce of the air, 
a'l thtfe component parts become flill 
more highly alkaiefcenc an'l putrid. 
And it is wtli known that the a;r a^ls 
upon the dead animal upon the fame 
principles as it does upou the blood in 
the lungs. But this is not all, Mr. 
Urban, the wonder is not half over; 
for, the fheep has a temperature of heat 
equal to 96 degrees, tven although the 
furrounding atmofphere be loo degrees 
below that. 

When 1 reAc£led upon this animal and 
its vital funfiions so years a^o, ivith a 
mind unbiafled (and, 1 think, I may 
now add, unc$Htamitiaiid) by the abfurd 
hypothefes of our modern chemiils, hy- 
pothefes which have originated in cru- 
cibles and gun-barrels, and of which 
at th^t time I had not even heard, it 
occurred to me that the acefcent chyle 
muft receive phlugiQon, or tixed hie, 
from the air fprmiug red globules, far, 
mufcular fibres, &c. ; and th^t the cir- 
culation of the blood, and the other 
vital mo'.ions of the animal, put this 
fixed fire into an active f^ate again as 
animal heat, by mechanical attrition 
from mufcular motion, and the a£tion 
of the blood -vcffcls. 1 believed that I 
had proved this by rubbin«; the red glo- 
bules well in a bladder; tor, by this 
proccfs they became black bicod a«;.iin, 
yielding at the fame tunc a degree of 
animal heat. Therefore, 1 drew this 
cooclufion, that animal life conlills in 
this great principle, in receiving tixed 
lire from the air, and thar the vital ac- 



aniinalize the vegetable acid food ; and 

cions fet it free ag.iin as a&ual fire \ for, that this alkaline or phlogifiic animal 

wh*en the «nimal u killed, and thcfe part is to (liniuiate and put in aCiioQ 

Vital actions are confcquently fuppief- the vital functions. And, as it is ge- 

ied, all its fluids become fpecdily very nerally allowed that the red globules of 

highly putrid and alkaicfccnt, from an the blood arc the great flimuius to ani- 

accumulation of the fixed lire, the vital mal life, how can Dr. Goodwin ima- 

fundious and motions being waolcd to gine that thtir flimulus is owing to the 

fet it l.vofc. oxygen gas, or acidifying principle. 

Surely, Mr. Urban, this theory of which they leceive in the lungs? For, 

mine is ^mpU^ piaim, and ca/y, to the he and every other chemifi muft allow, 

dullefl capacity; but, if there be dill that acids ai^ ftdanvi and not MimM" 

fortie of but moil iMgemioas philofcpheis Umt. Therefore, the firfl flimulus to 

fo dcftitute of common fenlir, or fo in* the animal cannot be of an acid but of 

f;)ti)?ted by the txaaia excited by fome a phlogiflic qoaluy. 

late nuttakcn experiments, as to deny in a futuic paper, Mr. Urban, I will, 

its truth, let me iniicat each of them, with your peimilfion, touch upon fome 

as they have been already intreated by other abfurdities of our modern theo«

YOUR corrcfpondent, in your Uft 
Yv luine, who dates his letter from 
Manchefter, feems very inveterate agaioft 
the ifluers of mo.iern provincial coins \ 
and has in a vrry defultury manner 
thrown to^fther foine loofc thoughts 
upon the fubjt-fl; amoogft which, with 
r>me truth, cheie is a great deal of 
error. 

It is a weP.koown faft, that, previous 
to the introduction of thefe coins, there 
was a very great 'Jeticicncy of copper 
currency; a matter of very preat incon* 
venience to tratie, and hurtful to the 
poor, whole pavments are chiefly made 

fin^ upon the patience of your readers, m copper. No c linage of halfpence at 
in your Magazine, vol. LXIV. p. the mint hav.ni; taken piace fince the 

951, it is faid, th: hironet.ige of Fitch is y«ar 177), much the greater part of the 

But eztind. To prove it, we are told copper^ in circulation was of that fort 

t!tat the prefcnt H;.nry-Wi!Iiam Fitch, called Birmingham halfpence, villanout 

of High HaI^ m DorfetChiie, is the counterfeits of the Tower co'nagc, of a

34 Provincial Coins of general Utility and Convenionttm - [ J»». 



omparifoD with the Birmingham half- 
pence formerly io circulation ; they are 
alfo in general well known, and eaftly 
dininguiihtfd from the genuine coins. 
Where a tradefman hzs a die cut for his 
own ufe, and puts his name on the to- 
ken, nobodv can be injured^ as he will 
for his credit's fake receive them when- 
ever brourht; and, in this .cafe, whether 
they wcign more or lets is of liitle con- 
(equence to the puhlick; nor v^ill any of 
this defcription be found fo fcanclaloofly 
light as the counierfeiis from which he 
makes his calculation. 

After this apology for the iffuirs of 
thel'e coins, fome obfervations on vour 
corrtfpondent's erroneous calculations 
will not he mifpUced. The cwt. of 
copper is flated to be worth 4/. 135. 4^. ; 
and from this price, without aliowing 
anv thing for workmanlbip. or wade, the 
caloulaiion of the profit per cwt. and per 
centam on the coins is made. If (he 
coft of the copper were (rue, this would 
be a very unfair way of proceeding; hut 
that candour forms no pari of his dcHgn 
is evident from his giving the profit per 
csntumonthe Anglcfeyh^ilfpenny 3606 to 
the cwt. ar 61/. is, 8J</. and taking 
no notice of that on the mint halfpenny 
of 5152 to the cwt. which would exceed 
cent, per cent. The price of the bed 
Iheet copper at this time, as I have been 
informed by perfons in the traJe, is 14^. 
per lb. or 6/. loi. ^J. per cwt. which 
\vouI<S make a very w'ulc dffference in 
every calculation in his tabic. If to this 
is added the waHc iu cuttine the tound 
blanks out of ilic fbcet, tht relidue being 
only faleable as cuttings, it will income 
rather matter of wonder that the Bir- 
mingham workman can alrbrd ihe coins 
at 16^. per lb. which it is well known 
is about the ufuat price, wh«rn the ex- 
pence of the die is paid by the perfon 
who orders them. 

It appears, from the above flatemcnt, 
that the profits of the Birmingham ai- 
ti(!s are nothighe* than on moA articles 
oJF their trade. What then are the 
proiis of the tradefmen who iflfue them ? 
The beft Anglcfey, and Mr. Bolton's 
beautiful Corniih, for example, aie a 
trifle under { oz. each -y thefe were (Iruck 
when iheet eopper was much cheaper, 
perhaps at the price your correfpondent 
mentions; and it is very clear, that, if 
the dies were now to be cur, they could 
not be iflued but at a lofs. Man« of 
fuch ai are made payable to particular 
^perfoBf are 40 to the lb. (confiderably 



heavier than the mint halfpence, whicb* 
■t 51 51 to the cwt. are 46 to the lb.); 
and when the expence of the die, which 
is 2 or 3 guineas, package, and carriage 
to anv confiderable diftance, is confi- 
derable, it will be evident that the pro- 
fits upon a few cwt. can be no ob]tQ:p 
and that the coins of this defcription 
muft be iflTued more for convenience 
than from any views of great ad anuge. 
But it will 1>e faid that the greater part 
are lighter than thefe. It is allowed 
that they arei and that fuch as have 
been iffued in 1794, in which year more 
have probably appeared than in all the 
preceding ones, are for the more part 
48 to the lb. Even at this rate the 
profit can be only 50 per cent, out of 
which the ex^iences before -mentioned 
aie to be dcdufled, which, in a quantity 
not exceeding 5 cwt. would very confi* 
deiably reduce it; and this profit is left 
than your correfpondent allows for Mr. 
Bolton's pattern halfpenny at 5220 to 
the cwt ; which, he veiy jufily ubferves, 
is abuv*: all ptHtfe, and which is indeed 
one of ihc mod beautiful medals ever 
ftruck. 

If thefe fafis are allowed, it will be 
very evident that the ftatement of your 
correfpondent is erroneous, and his 
ilri£tuies unfounded j and until Govern- 
ment (ball think fit, either to iflue a 
new mint-halfpenny, or to contract with 
Mr. Bolton for a fupply of thofe of 
which he h^s given tlie models, the 
p'cfent provincial coins (counterfeits 
excepted) muft be allowed to be of more 
general utility and convenience than of 
injury to the public, or of profit to indi* 
viduals. . 

It is very extraordinary that fo little 
pains (honid have been taken to ftatc 
the profits 10 the tabic accurately j ex* 
cept the fiill and the lafi, every calcu- 
lation h fauify, as the following ftate- 
ment will fncw, taking the numbers as 
thty ftand, without examining whether 
the number in the cwt. correfponds with 
the number of grains which each coia 
is faid to \%eigh. 

At 4/. 1 )i. 4</. fer cwt. not allowing 
any thing for the charge of coinage, the 
number of halfpence pgr cwt. is faid te 
be 2240, which is right.

of the prefenc fircafUc balladi Lord Cla- 
rendon informs u^, char, upon the re* 
turn of pirt of the parliament na?y to

The horror of a (imilar apparition to 
that which forms the fubje£^ ofthcfe 



adive loyaUn, and faithful adherent to verfes is touched by Tacitus with the 



Charles 11, during liis exile; and, vvhcn 
that mooarch in 1655 meditated a oei'ceit 
upon England, )Vlcnae« went to ZtaUnd, 
to prepar« a retreat, in which the King 
might wait till the ruyalift party declared

will, X think, go nearly at far in many 
of our provincial townt as in any of the 
continental ones. Xhc continent holds 
out the Aipeifluitiet, luxuriei, and 
amufements of life, at a much cheaper 
rat: than any part of this ifldnd; and 
therefore it it thvt a large income will 
go a great deal farther upon the Conti- 
nent than in England, and that large 
fortunes are retrieved from embarrats- 
meat, without much privation of plea* 
fure to the poflfelibr; but perfons of 
fmali incomes deceive themleNes in 
their ideas of ceconomy by retiring to 
the Continent, exclulive ol the expence

he took this (lep from religious motives, 
but out of regard to the Bavarian robi*

P. 58. Jl'he fplendour and hofpita- 
lity or the tourt at Carlfiuhe are much 
diminiflicd (ince the French menaced 
the German princes, and fpread terror 
along the banks of ihe Rhine. All the 
Margrave's plate, jewels, pi6turc3, and 
Vd'iUdbUs, were fent in 1792 to Ulm, 
where they Mill remain; aiid ihc appre- 
hcnfions of a French inroad, together 
with the murmurs of liii> fuhjci^^U, fee:n 
to have (uured the dirpi;ri(i<in, and chil- 
led the marncr&i, or the Margrave, 
whofe intpiicic contidcnce !n a worihIcTs 
and intriguing miniftcr, t.itely deceaCcd, 
has deprived him cf much of the for- 
mer attachment of his |>eoptc, and dii- 
Tcn from his (civ ice foaie upright aud 
able men, whofe councils had once pro- 
cured him confidcrab'e reputation in the 
empire.' Phvficr;! renfons induced the 
M*rgravt,ihen a widower, to marry, in 
1787, a Mademo.fc.le de Geycr, who 
was maid of honour to the heriduary 
princefs, and daughter of a deceafed 
officer of the court ; bnt this marriage 
was « la main gaucbi, a convenient fort 
^f method adopted by German princes 
ithi moic decent gnMilicai ion of tbeir 



ceremony, and which has been amply 
illnflrated by the prefeot king of Pruffia, 
who, befides his queen, has had two or 
three other wives, by the adoption of 
this fmgular fort of pojygamy ; a pri* 
Yilege which, however, is not allowed, 
to either their noble or plebeian fub- 
je£^s. It muft be confeifed, indeed, that 
the Margrave of Baden was not influ- 
enced by any luflful motive; and thai 
he adopted that plan, himfelf a widow* 
cr, merely to avoid the parade and ex* 
pence of a Margravine, and the diffi- 
culty of providing for the children of 
an equal alliance, without greatly bur* 
thcning.his fubje^^s. Mdderooifielle de 
Geyer was therefore made baroneit» and 
afrerwards countefs, of Hochberg, and 
was received at court without any fort 
of rank or etiquette. But I underfland 
(and I have lately been much in that 
part of Germany) that, as the heredU 
tary piince has only one fon, and the 
Margrave's other fons have no children, 
he has prevailed upon the emperor to 
confcnt, that, in cafe of default of iflut 
male in the houfe of Baden, the Mar- 
f^rave's defcendants by Madame de 
Huchberg ibatl inherit the family do« 
minions. He has feveral fons by that 
lady, who, as may well be fuppofed, 
excrcil'es no fmall degree of influence 
over a fund and aged huiband,and con- 
ftquenily mceii with a confiderable 
portion of flattery and attention. One 
of thed;>ught:rsof the hereditary prince 
is married to the Grand Duke of Ruflia'a

means I foon had a variety oF fenfes of 
the lame word ; 'I wn particularly at- 
tentire to the particles and to their 
force in compofuion. As my pages fil- 
led, 1 referred from one alphabet to ano- 
ther ; bat fuon finding that way very 
troublefome, f reiolved to tranfcribe at 
once all the Greek words out of a Lexi- 
con, and add to them the EngVtlh fen- 
fes, as I met with them in the coui Ic or 
my reading;. I preferred the mcth.>d of

i think evc-y Greek fchoUr wrfl ap-

PROCEEDINGS IN PARLIAMENT, 1794^ 



H. OF t O R D" !• 

Dec. 30, 1794; 

ON his M/j-Ily't returning, the 
Houfe proceeded to the ceremonial 
of introducing and fwearing ihe follow* 
ing newly created-Peers, Tii^lordi 
Bnion Vff^r OJ^rf, Cttvt, Mendiff, (Vtn* 
/»av, Lititftont Mu/gravi, S^ifta, Cur- 
xo'fit anil Yarbor(,ufb. Their Lo-dfhips 
then pr<^cceded to t«ke into conHderaiion 
hi» M.jw'Ay's mod gracious Speech, 
which being read, 6n1 by the Lord 
Chancellor, and a ftcond time by the 
Clerk at the tab'e, 

The Earl of Camditi prefaced a mo- 
tion of addrefs, by ohfcrviog, that he 
would not obtrude himfelf on the atten* 
tion of the Houfe, were it not at a pe- 
riod fo momentous and critical, as caliied 
upon kTery public man freely and can- 
didly to dale his feuiimenis of the naii- 
onal ^Sdirs. In bis mind, their fituation 
was fuch as required the utmoft vigour 
and afiivit? from ail its members in de- 
£enee of the (^ate ; and in this view tht 
cjcertions could not be diie£ted with bet- 
ter tfk6i than in fupport of the jui\ and 
ntccflary war the nation was engaged in, 
and which was very propeily recom- 
mended in the Speech fiorn the Throne. 
Before he proceeded farther on this 
head> his LordOiip adverted to that pait 
of the Speech which intimated the ap- 
proaching nuptials of hi^ Roial High- 
Defs the Prince of Wales; and on this, 
he was confident, there could ever be 
but one rpinibn among their Lordfhips ; 
an event which pr«mifed luch an in- 
creafe of happinefs to the Royal Family, 
and tended to give fiabihty to the fuc- 
ceifion in the illuflrious Houltof Bruof- 
wick to the Throne, muft ej^cite ihe 
xhoft p effing fen f'aC'ons in ev«ry well- 
uiiher of his country. 

Recurring then 10 his former obltr- 
T4ii(jns on the fitust)on of the country,, 
his Lord (hip avo%vcd himfelf decidedly 
of opinion, that the war (hcu'd be pro- 
fccuted with uniemicting vigour \ and 
that, far from being diflieartcced *i»t tiie 
Jare il) fuccelles (which be hoped would 
prove only temporary)^ they ou^ht to be 
a Ipur and an incentive 10 us to carry ca 
the contcft againft the common enemy 
with ledoubled energy. In this view, 
w^en the tcistive fnuatioB of the two 
countries was impaitially cocfidcredi bt 



faid it wouM be found that 'Great Bri* 
lain bad a decided advantage | her re«> 
fources were numerous and flouriibing, 
and her eredit perhaps greater than at 
ai^T former period ; for proof of this, he 
bad onlv to mention the ch-oimftances 
of the lace loans. Our war-eflabli(h^ 
ments were beyond comparifon greater 
than at any former period, and at thit 
moment we bad at command an im- 
rncnfe body of land-forces ready forthe 
e]»ecution of any en^erprize that may be 
determined on. On the other hand, com^ 
pare this with the Htuatipn of the ene> 
my, didfaflcd by internal cocvutfiona^ 
and riflcing et ery thing on external e&* 
ertions fdrr beyond irs- ilrength, and 
which therefore neceflarily could not 
continue long, without credit, and itt 
refources at the lowcfVebb. fts great 
engine of finance the aflignats bore at 
this moment a difcount of 75 percent*. 
A nation making fuch preternatural' ef- 
forts mud, and at no very diftant period^ 
be dcftroyed by thofe exertions. 

He was aware, that fuch of their Ldrd- 
ibips as piofeiTcd to entertain difiPerent 
feotiments- would exert their ingenuity

Review of New PuilUaiions.

Locke, the a<lvocarc of uoiverfi'l free- 
cTom, equality y and tnciependcnce of man, 
is made to coDtradi£t him'elf, in the 
mniverfality of .fufFrjf^Cf and \Vx,aTbi' 
irarj power of puni(bn:crit and taxation, 
the very tiftoce of Icgiflation. 

As no gcTernment can be appointed 
io the abAraCt, but all government ap 
pointed muft be exhibited in tcaliry, and 
fubftaotiated into aform}— Monarchy 
is the primary, the naturatf the droine, 
form of government tor man,, p. 27. 
The election, therefore, of a king by 
thA Ifraelites, which is made (uch a 
liandlc of by modern Repub!icani,as de- 
creed (inful by God himfelf, is fliewn to 
mean only *' the calling for a human acd 
a ▼ifihie king, to the rcje^ion of il.cr 
king invifiblc and divine," p. 18. The 
iburce and ef^efls of Republicanifm in 
ilttica are well drpidted. p. 30; and 
Piatarch, in his life of Timuleon*, liiis 
drawn a ilriking piAure of what has 
happened in our own times, " Thefe 
declared t^at the end of their commotion 



hiflory of Republicanifm, effaces all the 
iignatures of Republican extraragance 
before, and leaves human foll^ or hu* 
man vicioufnefs no fcope of operation 
l)eyond. France, while it continued a 
kingdom, was always the firft of the 
nations in arts and in arms. The long 
contefls that bare been maintained be- 
ween ut and Fr«nce may make us un- 
willing to allow this. But let us be 
perfeftly juft to a fallen foe. For fallen 
he now is completely. France §nee was 
the grand medium through which all 
the rt6ntments of the continent were 
tianfmitted to u«. To her wo owe our 
leaining nnd civility, even our Chrifti- 
anity. She ftood, therefore, as the con- 
veyor of ail good to us. Even now fbe 
flands unintentionally^ unwilhngly, as 
a kind friend, as & warner to our iears» 
as acaller^upon our Wifdoro." 

Mr, W. proceeds to draw an animated 
pidure.of the dreadful paroxyfm of liber- 
ty in that unhappy country, plu6gedia- 
barharifm, perlidy, and atheifm ; and, af* 
tcr ftaiog-thOr origin and confequeccts

The market- place was oveijjrown with 

gnfs, and the emigrants whrm Timc- 

Kon invited home, kept back for drtad 

snd abhorence of the verv name ot thoie 

tommumtiis,municipaii!ies, and tribuncts, 

{(tyo^xiy «roX»ifiai9 »u /?»/Aa1a,) which 

liad produced the greattd part of thtir 

ryrants. In the Roman icpuhlic the 

tribunes of the people at la(\ engroHed

and both Julius and >\ugufVus, and all 

(ucceeding emperors, fpund it expedient 

to annex this office to their ptribns fcr

heavy pillage of private property cxer

eminence of power and glory which France 
onre potTe(fed, but has ivow forfeited, more 
indeed than that pre-eminence, in the very 
fovereignty of commerce, in the very em- 
pire of arts and arms. May we fo a^ as

would it be impoifible for any enemy of

the very air of Paris would be fatally infec-

failed from Coi k on ihe^ Monday following. 
When v.* exprefs arrived at MilfonJ, a

to fail : the pairu;e to Waterford nine hours, 
and the exprefs reached Coik on the Simday 
evening, and prevented the fleet from fail-

From this circumAance, the MiniHerfaw

For February, 179s. 



BEING ThE SECOND NUMBER OF VOL. LXV. PART I. 



Mr. UtBAK, B.M. Feb. 20. 

>^ ^ much at poiiibl^ the evils 

w 1 w which may be dreaded 

w ^ to arife fronA iheprefeat 

^ ^ inclement fcafon, which 

be much incrcafcd by 
the occafioTial thaws filtiog the ground 
\\\Ct a fponge with water, and the re. 
turn of fevere froll malting all the far* 
face of the earth a folid body of ice, 
from which great damage may be ex- 
pe^ed to the growing wheat, and the 
fi^fon ihonened for the fowing fpring- 
corn ; it gaye me (tleafure to obferve 
the attention of the commiflioners of 
agriculture to an object, which may 
greatly relieve the country ; that is, the 
culture of potatoes *, We are told, that 
1000/. will be oflTered, in one or more 
premiums, for the culture of the greateft 
quantity. I have no doubt but that the 
commiAioners will duly weigh the mofl 
proper method of difpoHng of it i yet I 
truft they will excufe a hint, that the 
premium of twenty (hillings an acre fbr 
every acre morfc than five, cultivated 
by one perfon, will tend mod to en* 
courage \i\ and, were they to publifli 
the proper methods of cultivation da 
different foils in th<: provincial papers, 
]t would add much to the fuccefs. 
This is more neceflfary than may be 



generally fuppofed, as a friend of mine 
loft a premium offered by the Society of 
Arts, from his ignorance of the ne- 
ceffary rules of the Society, altheueh 
their lift of premiums have been pub- 
lifhed regularly for more than twenty 
years. Yours, &c* HiMT. 



Mr. Urban, tth. 13. 

I HOPE it will turn oat, that Sug* 
geflor (p. 4.) is not building caftles 
in the air, and that he may be fooo pre<* 
ferred to (bme good redory^ to enable 
him to carry his intention into execur 
tion ; though, I apprehend, he would 
find it a very difficult job, when put to 
the teft. If fuc^ an event (hould take ^ 
place, perhaps Suggeftor fhould accept 
of an hint from the Parliaments/ry 
Board of Agriculture, and publifli to 
the farmers,** that they, who produced 
the beft ten acres of corn, &c." en lands 
nfViT cp^liid for the culti'vation tj it 
bt/ore, fumcwhat agreeably to their in* 
tended fcheme for propagating the cuN 
tivation of potatoes. This would not 
only be a fpur to their induftry, butalfo ' 
be of general benefit to the country ;— « 
particularly at this feiious and impor- 
tant, if not moft alarming, crifis. 

In your vol. LXIV. p. 875, is a 
wonderful inflance of the fidelity and 
fagacity of a dog f ; that circumdincc,

When, in hii nineteenth year, he wai

l(df;ed i<r be one of the moft accom- 
plifiied young men in the uniieilitjr. 
Attention bad been paid to the cultiva.

Oxford to complete the education which 
he had fo fucctfifuily bci^un, died 
fuddenly before he bad refided many 
moDihi in the place, but ihi> flioke, 
though heavy 






rable. 



I leave hiir 



e of parental 
mother long fuiviftd her bulband; and 
from Dr. Seeker, then biUwp of Ox- 
ford, he experienced the affc<5l lonate at- 
leniion of a fecond (aiber. It is not 
pcrhapi too much to fay ihat in the 
houfe of ihii prelate, ivhn had long ad> 

of the bilhap of Cloyne, he palTed fume 
of the bippiell bourt of hit life; by 
him he wa( admitted into otdiri, and 
from him he leceired the highell pte- 
fermeot which he etei ohlaincd in the 



it maiki the ,re£iitude and bencToteDce 
ofhia charaSer. Though bis patroa 
had for many ycaii been arihbilhop, 
piior engagemtnii had prevenled him 
till a Ibort lime before bis death from 
preferring the fun of hii moft refpei^el 
friend in the mettopoliiical chufeh. 
Seeker was too dicinl and too upright 
to prefer any man from intcreftcd mo- 
lireij but Dr. Berkeley bad reafon ra 
believe, that, upon makinghim preben- 
dary of Canterbury, he wiOied him l« 
relig^ the living of Aflon, which ho 
knew would be bellowed upon a de- 
ferring decgyman Mfaom his Grace waa 
under fome obligaiiooi to ferve. The 
Dodor wai hardly iaAidled when the 
Archbilhopdied! but, noiwiihftanding 
thii change of circumftaDcei, he imme- 
diately religned hit living, though no 
Etomife to do fo had ever been a£ed of 
im, and no fuch promife had been gi- 
ven. He did it Iro:n a piincipleof gra- 
titude to hil beneF^Oor, to whom, bai 
he been alive, he knew that the riTig- 
nation would have been acceptable. 

in t;6i he married Mif> Frinlham.

Mr. Urban, EdtHhurgb, Ja9. 10. 

THERE are many men of a fpeca- 
lativc turn of mind, and of melan- 
choly dilpofitions, who confider the 
prcfent times as the word th^t have ever 
been ; and men of the like temper have 
exiiled in tveiy age. A little attention 
10 hiftoiy, however, and to the abfurd 
conf.quenccs that might be drawi} from 
fuch a leprefentation of things, will in« 
ducc uft I® ih nk fomewhat diiferentlv, 
and perhaps to conclude that, In every 
age, mankind (though their purfuns 
have been fomcwhat diffcrrent) hnve, 011 
the v\ho!e, been very wmch alike; and 
that the futn of viitueand vice in the 
woild ha% at every period, been nearly 
equal. If, indeed, we bring itjio the 
acLijunt the ahuming depravity of a 
neighbouring nation, which almoft ex- 
ceeds every thing which hiftory records, 
or which iober men cm conceive { the 
prtfcnt a/e will probably appear to pof- 
terity in blacker colours ilidn moft of 
thole that h«ve preceded it. But even 
then inuch extraordinary virtue in the 
many iiluftriousfufferers, and much ex« 
traordinary benevolence jn the by* 
ftanders, may be found ; if not fufficieni 
to wipe out the luin (for that is impof« 
liblc), yet fufTicient to make a very 
conhdcrable balance to it. 

In cur own nation (notwithftanding 
the late incelTant endeavours to perverc 
the public mind, and to hide or deny 
the plaincft fadls) theie is yet much po- 
lineal excellence, and much private 
Virtue. Without piivate virtue and in-

general, the confequences would nei« 
ther be pleafant nor friendly to virtue. 
Let them then leave military duties, 
and the defence of our national dignity, 
to tht:ir fathers, their brothers, and 
their countrymen. Unfucctrsfui as the 
prefent war has hitherto been, it hat 
been (hewn that the courage and bra- 
very of Britons is not yet evaporated ; 
and we may'yct perhaps be able to (hew 
our fava^e and unprmcipled enemies 
that, when united in defence of our 
king, our country, our reli^iob, and 
our deareH; interefts, the fame fpirit 
pervades ui which, under God, enabled 
us to humble- their natipn in former 
times. War is always a great evil ; 
but its confequences would be worfe 
than we have yet found them, if the 
gentle bofoms of the fair fex were re-, 
duced from the quiet fcenes of domeilic 
Jife to riot in fcenes of blood; and if, 
ioftl^ad of the amiable qualities and 
bafhful air for which they are admiied, 
they weie to learn to appear in all the 
£erctnefs of a hero. 

The acquicfcence cf the ladies in 
mafculine vices, as it is more general 
thdn the follies I have now atrempted 
lo ex(>ore, is alfo of worfe confcquence 
to the State. I hare alTcried indeed, 
and it is true, that the mi(erable condi- 
tion of the unfortunate womtn who 
crowd ourftreets is the immediate eflfe£l 
of the favage and unprincipled cruelty 
of our own fex; but it is equally true 
that, if the great body of our women 
would (hew thtir indignation acd coo- 
tempt for the unwoiihy perf;ctrators of 
thole horrid crimes, thty «\ould be iefs 
frequent. On the contrary, however, 
it It found in fa£i ih^t men of tbi5 fiamp 
are received snco their company without 
the lein htfitation, and even with equal 
(1 fear i might have (aid ^leater) pica-

amiable woman is an ineftim able reward 
for their dangerous labours; and ihey 
arc fully entitled to it. But it is un- 
worthy of the fez, and difgraceful 19 
them, to be attraded merely by a red 
coat and its gaudy ornaments i a con« 
du£^. fo abfurd as to put one in mind 
of the foolilh roackarel, which is eati- 
ced to its ruin by a piete of red doth* 
Yet they who ba^e attended public 
places well know that in fad a fenfelefa 
puppy, who is adifgrace to the militaty 
order, add who has nothing to recom- 
mend but the tlnfel of his doaths, e? ea 
if be is known to come immediately 
from the arms of a Arumpcty or the fi* 
ni(hing fcene of feduQion, is frequentif 
better received than he who has cYcr^ 
virtue and every mental and even per* 
fooal qualification to recommend him# 
The cffeft which fuch infenfibility of 
conduct has upon young men of all de- 
nominations, and on the morals t>f tho 
country at large, is too glaring to ba 
denied. Were women, on the other 
hand, in fuch cafes to (hew a dififerenc 
fpirit i were they uniformly to defpifa 
and negUA all tbofe who fpend their 
firft ftrength among the mofi abandoned 
of the (tx\ marriages would be more 
frequent, and incomparably more' hap- 
py, than they are ; the vices of the na- 
tion would be lelfened, and its real dig- 
nity, fecuiity, and happinefs, increafed. 
The endearments of connubial love, and 
domeftic oeconomy, wciiid be magnified 
beyond conception i religion, which al- 
lows all the pleafures of life as far as 
we can poiiibly enjoy them with le^i 
fatisfa£tion, and without injury to our- 
felves and others, would yet improve 
amongfl usi that impatience of con- 
trou), which unhappily chara£)«rizes too 
many of qur young men, and which af- 
terwards grows into turbulence and fe- 
dition, would b« done away, and our 
bappinefs as men and citizens would be 
complete. 

Ycur fair readers, Mr. Urban, will^

which it is cettainly in their power, in

a reformation is neither chimerical, im*

Firfl, for imputing the operation of 
bleeding to me; and fecondly, for af- 
fening that I acknowledge it (which I 
pofitivclydeny); and, for a farther refu- 
tation of his mifreprefentations, I refer 
your candid and unprejudiced readers to

Yours, &c. G. North Robinson* 

Mr. Urban, ' Fib, 4>. 

IN anfvver to your correfpondent, I. P. 
who, like a man of benevolence and 
Candour, wiflies for farther informa- 
tion, in a matter important to the com* 
fort of many, I mull fay, what I truly 
tjiink founded upon obfervation from 
praflice and experience, that no fuch 
defeafe as canine madnefs ever was in 
the human fpecies, (imilar to the def- 
cription now received, or the defcripttoa 
handed down from phyfical writers. 
But errors, however fan£lioned by length 
of time ox refpeflable names, ic is to 
be hoped, by liberal enquiry, and as li- 
beral communications to^the public, the 
prefent medical and experienced pra^i- 
tioners will^xplode and bring forward, 
and in this matter more efpeclally. 
Then, Mr, Urban, will your ufeful and 
reputable Publication have rendered an 
invaluable fervicc to mankind, by being 
the principil channel in which this 
matter was B. ft dated and brought for* 
>vard for invefligatjon. What I mean 
to advance is, that the bite of the mad 
dog cannot produce, in the human fpe- 
cies, a fimilar difeafe, attended wiih 
- barking, foaming at the mouth, hydro- 
phobia, and generally followed by the 
death of the patient. In a former pa- 
per, in your publication, I advanced a 
do^rine, approaching to what 1 have 
now brought forward \ 1 alfo replied to 
a fort of an objedlional paper againft it; 
this is a third paper under the fame fig- 
nature. As I have before hinted, I 
have not leifure for contioverfy, i write 
Vttder an adopted fignature i but what I 
advance, let it be tried and examined 
in the mode propofed in the fecond pa- 
per. At a future time, and leifure, I 
mean to propofe a plan to afcertain the 
matter beyond doubts and controverfy. 
Verax et Benevolus. , 



to you, and worth infertiog, I (ball beg 
the favour of you to give it a corner in 
your valuable Mifcellany. 

On this day, as foon as fupper it 
over, a table is fet in the hall ; on it ii 
placed a brown loaf, with twenty (ilver 
threepences ftuck on the top'^of it, a 
tankard of ale, with pipes and tobacco; 
and the two oldeft fervants have chairs 
behind it, to fit in as judges, if they 
pleafe. The fteward brings the fer- 
vants, both men and women, by one ac 
^ time, covered with a winnew-ibeet, 
and lays their right hand on the loaf, 
expofing noother part of the body. The 
oldeft 9f the two judges gueflfes at the 
perfon by naming a name, then the 
younger judge, and, laftly, the oldeft 
again. If they hit upon the right name, 
the fteward leads the perfon back again ; 
bur, if they do not, he takes offthe win- 
now* Iheet, and the perfon receives a 
threepence, makes low obeifance.to thft 
judges, but fpeaks not a word. When 
the fecond fervant was brought, the 
yoiyiger judge guelTed fitft and third $ 
and this they did alternately, till all the 
money was given away. Whatever icr- 
vant had not flept in the houfe the pre- 
ceding night forfeited his tight to the 
money. No accoubt is given of the ori- 
gin of this flrange cuftom, but it has 
been pra^ifed ever fince the family lived 
there. When the money is gone, the 
rervHnis have full liberty to drink, 
dance, ling, and go to bed when they 
pleafe. 

Your correfpondent P. H. (p. iz.y 
complains of a irequent bleeding at the 
nufe. A piece of paper rolied up, "^ and 
held between the upper lip and the gum, 
(which P. H. calls fuperftiiious,) has 
been known to ftop the bleeding imme- 
diately three or four tinus in a day. 
Youis, &c. R. W. Unett.

and now belongs to thelicir of the late Di:ke 
ot Chandos. 

Though Mr. Malone h.is alteady obtained 
feveral very curious and original materials 
for the life of Shakfpearc, he will be ex- 
tremely obliged by any further communica- 
tions on that fubjedl. He has always thought 
that much information mifiht be procured^ 
illuflrative of the hiftory of this extraordi- 
nary man, if pcrfons pollelfed of ancient pa- 
pers wonld take the trouble to examine 
them, or permit others to pci*ufe iliem ; and 
he has already pointed out the fources from 
which fucli information may probably be 
derived. Shakfpcare*sj: rand-daughter, lady 
l^arnaid, (the only child of Sufanni Hall,) 
died in January, 1669.70; and hy i^er lall 
will appointeti her kinfman Mr. Edward 
Bagley, citizen of London, her executor, 
and rcTidiiary legatee. This perfon, (who, 
it |s believed, was not related to Shakfpeare, 
but kinfman eillier to Sir John 4'arnard of 
Abingdon near Norlimmpton, or to the fa- 
mily of Hall or Nalh,) muft have become 
polfcfll'd of all her coffers and cnbincts, in 
which undoubtedly wc?c feveral of iier 
grandfather's papejs. When or where Mr. 
Bagley died is uncertain, no will of his ha- 
ving been difcovered in the Prerogative of- 
fice, though fe;uch has been made tiicre for 
fifty years fubfequent to 1670, to afceriain 
thofe fadls, as well as the name of tlic pcu- 
fon to whom his elfc<5ls dcfcended. But, if 
any perfon be now livin,^ who derkVes any 
property fiom thtt faid Mr. Bagley, he is 
requeftrd to examine a'l fuch papers as have 
dt-fccndcd to him, with the view already 
mentioned.

The half-year's night her mantle flings, 

And wraps bina in the dark \

For, not one foul infernal hag 

Will fpced him on his way. 

Then hail, New Moon, the ppet*s friend i 
Our wearied hopes muft now depend 

On thy renafcent Ight ; 
O calm the ocean and the air. 
Convert this ajverfe wind to fair, • 

And gild our polar night I 

So may Endymion faithful prove 
On Laimo5, and return thy love. 

Soft regent of the main !

Iaw to make the aathority refpedted with 
^hich he is entnilled* 3. Whoever (hall 
infult the national juftice, (hall not be heard, 
but be tried immediately." 

BillauJ Varennes. *' Before this decree 
is pafled, I demand the Convention (hould 
hear the reading of a letter received by the 
Committee, .from the Admi«»iftraiion of 
Police. It will fee how lihertv is threatened, 
and the intimacy which fuhfiAs between the 
coafpirators now before the Tribunal and 
thofe in the prifons. 

" Conamm of Part's^ April 4. 

** We, Adminiftrators of the Department 
of Police, in confcquence of a letter received 
from the keeper of the Luximbiirg prifon, 
went thither, where there appeared before us 
Citizen Da Flottc, formerly Miniltcr of the 
Republic at Florence, who declared tt> us, 
that^ being in the chamber of Arthur Dillon 
the preceding evening, the latter told him, 
that Dantooj Lecroix, a"d others, had that 
day declare, Jbeforethe Revuluii«jnir^ Tri- 
bunal, that they would anfwer uo queftions 
but in Che prefence of Robefpicrre, Eiinere, 
abd Sc. ]w% their accufers $ that the people 
were much pleafed w>th this deteitnination s 
that the Jury was embarrafifeJ how to pro- 



Vadier— " They calumniate your Commit-< 
tees, they fpeak of arbitrary power, and of 
a DtAator. We can anfwer this, in a few 
words. Examine the whole tenor of our 
life, and pronounce. For mjr part, I fwear 
here, that if there were a, member who 
would ufurp but for an inf^ant the fovercign 
power, though old age has chilled my vigour, 
yet would I (tab him m this Hall ! " 

Couihon moved, that every Deputy be 
bound to give an account of his former and 
prefent' fortune, and that each of them de- 
clare that the National vengeance do Ihnke 
his head if he iropofes on the nation. This 
motion was unanimoufly decreed. The real 
form of the decree is to be prefented to-mor- 
row by the Committee of Public Welftirc. 

CoiiChon alfo propofcd to renewthe pro- 
pofttion aheady conreor.Jted, that every free- 
man who (hall mike an attempt upon the 
Rights of Che people (ball be put to death by 
Freemen. — Applaufe. 

j^pail I X. The Hall was extremely full 
of Member;, on account of the promifed re- 
port of the Committee of Public Safety oq 
the Police of the Republic. 

Couthon obfcrved, that the report on the 
general Police of the Republic muft be delay- 



ceed ; anid that it was feared the Committee ed, in confeqiienoe of new fad', which caU 



of Public Safety would order all thi prifoners 
to be madacred, (or fear they ihould create 
an infurreAon. Dillon added, that he had 
concerted means with Simon to bribe the 
keepers} that the wife of Defmoulins was to 
diftribute 1000 crownstathe mob to furround 
the Revolutienary Tribunal ; and, in (hort, 
that a popular infurredion was to be excited 
in order to releafe the prifoners. La Flot?c 
added, that Dillon wifhed very much th.ir 
he (hould enter into tliis confpiracy." This 
declaration being figued by La Flote, the 
decree propofed by St. Juft was adopted. 

Robefpierre moved, lli.it tlie letter and re- 
port of St. Juft he fent to the Revolutionary 
Tribunal, and read alouJ in open Court. — 
Adopted. 

jlptiL 5. Couthon—" We are here to 
give you fome particulars refpcfting what 
happened yerterJay b-*ft)re the R«volutionary 
Tribunal, where Vadier and 1 were prefeiu 



led for meafures that could not have been 
forefeen, and which required exemplary 
punifhments, lo prove to die univerfe that 
the Convention had not in vain inade virtue 
and probity the Order of the Day. <« This 
Report," exclaimed Couthon, J|* will be fol- 
lowed by feveral others. Your Committee 
has found, that the adoption of a more ex- 
tt-nfive fvftemwill be necellary. Alrc.idy 
have you overwhelmed alarming confpinicics, 
but you have not yet completed the dtfcharge 
of your dutv. A U f;rts of crimes have beeo 
let lo »fe ajainft the Rrpublic The Republic 
therefore flioulJ iiiflidt lignal punifhments 
on all forts of crimes. Attempts have been 
made to corrupt the morals of the people, 
and to poifon the ftream of national felicity. 
But we have purified the fourcc, and there 
are among us now only zcdjus defenders of 
the Republic and real friends of the People. 
(Loud plaudits). It becomes the dignity 



without being fccn. The ronfpirators faid, of the National Rcprefentation to ertablifli a 

that nothing was more glorious than to con*- government as ftable as it is dignified, let 

fpire againft a Government which confpircs. u*; labour inccffantly to draw the fccondary

*' We are engaged in an arduom conteft. 
The time calls i.ot o^ly for gi^cxl fortitude, 
and an nnufual (hare of pubic fpirit, but 
for much conft^ncy and psri^erante. You , 
are engaged with a power, which, under 
. Hie ancient fo;-ms of it^ internal arrangemtnt, 
was alw.-iys higlily formidable to the ncit-h ■ 
bouring nations. Lntely this power has af- 
fumed a new (hape ; but w*th the fame am- 
bition, with much more extenfive and fyi^e-. 
matic defign.9, far more efFcCbve, and, with- 
.out compariftin, more dreadful in thecenaiii 
cohfeqtiences of its eventual fuccef*^ ; it threa- 
tens hothing Itfs than the entire fuh' erfmn 
of the hberty and independence of every 
State in EompeT An enemy to them all, it 
ia adlujited with a peculiar anmofity again ft 
thefe kingdoms, not only as the natural pro- 
teflion of the balance of powei* in Europe, 
but alfo, becaufr, by the poffetfion of a leg-tf, 
humane, and rational freedom, we feem to 
reproach that falfe and fpimous libcjtv, 
which, in reality, is an ignominiotisferviti.de, 
tending to extihguilh all gtxxl aru:, to gene- 
rate nothing but impiety, cnm.e, difi»rder, 
and ferocious manner*, and to end io wretch-, 
edncfs and general defol iti<»n. 

•* To guard his people foom the enter- 
prifes of this dangerous and malignant power, 
and for the protedlicn of all civihzed fcKicry 
againft the inroad of anarchy, his Majel^y 
has availed himfelf of every ration d aid, 
foreign and domellic; he has called tipon the 
(kill, conragr, and experience, of .dl his fnh- 
jefts, wherefocver difpcrfed ; and you mutt 
be duly fcnfible, in fuch a crifis .is the pre- 
fent, which rarc'y occurs in the courfe i>f

i8o Correfpondinci nlalivi to Dr. Johnfon and Dr. Pricftley. [Mar, 

When the traft, to which Mr. Bof- been from one man of letters to another, 
well alludes, was publ^i Hied, Dr. Prieft- Johnfon was very civil, 
ley was \n England j and in all pr ba- I hope that I have written fatisf^^ftorily ; 
bility, if 1 had made any miftakc, he and am happy in the opportunity which you 
would have taken fome opportunity of have given tb me of affuring you with what 
correaingit. But, from his filcncc about rfi(pea I am, dear Sir, your moft obedient 
my lUrcmcnt, 1 en o have no doubt of »c«^ant, 
his aflcnt to it i and, as the Do^tofis now '^' 

in America, I thought' it incumbent 
jipon me to appeal to the refpcftable 

fentlepnan who in .private convcrfatioo 
card, at the very fame time with my* 
ftif, from ihi very fame perfon, the ve- 
ry fame faft. which I afterwjirds hid 



occtfron to Uy before the publitk. 

Through the bluntncfs of Mr. Bof- 
Tvell's Unguajge, I am unable to collt6t 
precifJy the extent of h>s meanp^g. He 
mi;iht njean to fay, that Dr. Jtihofi'jh 
and Dr. Prieltley had not jiitt at all ; or 
he might mean to fay only, that Dr. 
tohnfon had not almoft folicited the 



Samuil Rogers. 

They who, after reading the foregoing 
letters which have lately pafTed between 
my friends and myfclf, feel no dillruil 
in the exa^nefs of our memory, or in 
the veracitv of our teOimony, will fee 
that the difpute now lies between Mr. 
B ofwell and Dr. Pricftley j between 
firm belief upon the one hand, awd pofi- 
fve affertion on the other ; beiweea 
Mr. Bofwell's inference from bis know- 
ledge of Dr. Johnfnn's general difpofi- 
lion, and Dr.^Pricftlcy's account of Dr. 
Johnfon's behaviour in a particular c^fe. 

Either Mr. Bofwcll, then hns fallen 
into an error ; or Dr. Pricftley his been 



meeting. But |hc cotrtfpondence which gudty of a falfehood. 



palTcd between Dr.Johnftone and myljplf 
is equally applicable to cithci' confti uc- 
lion of Mr. Bofwcil's hngoage; and I 
iiope to give .him no cfFcnce, by laying 
before your leaders the anfwers whioh 1 
-hare received to fome farther inqu tries. 

Dear Sir, Francii-Jireet, Feb. 21, 1795- 
I have received your favour of yefterday; 
an*!, in anfwcrto the former part of it, I beg 
leave to date generally, that fome time in 
•'April or May laft I heard Dr. Prieflley re- 
mind Mr. Paradifc of the p«rtiailar civility 
with which, accordipg to his accoiiiir, Dr. 
Johnfon had bchavcJ Cow.irds liim (Dr. 
Prieltley) whtn ihey formerly dined tt>2c- 
ther at the hovife of Mi. Paradife. I wiH, 
moreover, add, thai, Ijaving mentioned the 
fiibjedl this afternoon to Mr. Paradife, he 
lold m«i, that, ihougli he did not clearly re- 
colledlthe moiive by wliich he had been in- 
duced to bring Dr. johnlon and Dr. Prieft- 
Jey together, lie vrry well lemembcrsii Pr. 



Mr. Bjfvvell cannot imagine, that I 
was capable of overlooking the guarded 
and ambigAious language in which he 
reprefcnts me, as appearing to fuppofe 
whar, in truth, I believed, and ftill 
continue to believe very fmcerely, what 
1 recolleAed yery diftm^lly, and ftatcd 
very unrefervcdly. He will not he dif- 
pleafed w>th me for declaring, that in 
ray tra£l I meant no difhonour to Dr. 
Johnfon's memory, while 1 allow, that 
he intended to do what he thought 
jufticc to Dr. Johnfon's chara6ler by his 
note. He will not expc6t me to contro- 
vert his opinions, or to explain my own, 
upon the right which Dr. Johnfon had, 
as a gentleman, a fchoUr, and a chrii- 
tian, to reprobate and even to fhun fuch 
men as Dr. Prieflley and Dr. Pnce. 
Should Mr. Bofwcli be pltaftd to 



maintain, that Dr. Johnfon rather con 
Jo'uilon's havit g bee 1 preVioufly informed, fented m \.\\^ interview, than almofl foil- 
that Di . Pi iclil.y wv>nUI be me of ihe com- cited it, 1 (hall not obje6V to the change 



pany, an-J his having m.inif^fted great civi- 
' lity to the l.iUer upon that rccafion. 1 have 
tlie honor to b^, with great refjicdt, dear Sir, 
your moft humble aiid obciiient fervant, 

Edward Beabcroft. 

Dea r S \ r, Neivinglcn- Green j Feb, 2 3 . 

I can anlvvcr your fcvcralquellions dif- 
tinaiy. 

I heard of the interview between Dr. 
Johnfon and Dr. Pricftley from Dr. Pricll- 
Icy himfelf. 

X have hsard it mentioned more than once, 

I underftood t lat it was not folicited by 

»Pr. Prieftliry I and that, if any overture was 

made for tliat pwrpofc, it came frvim Dr. 

Jolinfon. 

— . i found that Dr. Frieftlcy thought Dr. 



of txprelfion. If Dr. Johnfon met Dr. 
Prieflley, if he preyioufly knew that he 
was to meet him, if, upon meeting him, 
he behaved to Dr. Pricftley with parti- 
cular civility, he did what Mr. Bofwell 
rcprefents as unlikely, and indeed un* 
fit to h^vc been done by fo exait and 
inflexible a moralift towards a writer, 
whofe opinions bethought pernicious to 
fociely. 

I reverence Dr. Johnfon, not fcfs^ 
than Mr. Bofwell does ; and if I refpeft 
Dr. Pr'cftley, more than he fceras to do, 
I am nor entirely withoiit the hope oi 
being approved by fome who are ivlfe, 
and many whf> are good. The chitt

TheChronicles optheSeasons. 
Winter, 1794 5. 

PROBABLY the laft winter was the 
feverell that ever oc^rred in this 
ifland fmce " God faid, let there be 
lights in the firmament of the heaven 
Co difide the day from the night; and 
let them be for (igns, and for feafoHS, 
and ft)r days, and years.'* Undoubtedly 
it was the reverell ever recorded in our 
anna's; and of courfe the levered ever 
known within the*memorV of man. The 
full extent of its beneficial, and baneful 
elf<r£ts vvHl not be ^mpletely afcer- 
tained till near the clofe of the year; at 
many confcquences^both good and bad 
will become developed as the feafons to 
come advance. The unprecedented in- 
clemency wilt leave the deeper impref- 
fion on the mind from having occurred 
at irt> ara of polir cat hiftorj, when men 
are awcfully contemplating an extraor- 
dinary and rapid fucccffion of momen- 
tous events; one of the. mod important 
of which, the extraordinary froft, aififtcd 
the accompiifhment of by the French ; 
▼iz. the rcduf^ion of HoDand. Another 
remarkabre circumRance was, that, dur- 
ing pari^of the vigorous period, our grand 
fleet was at fea ; where, in defiance of 
all boil^erous and frigid phxnomena, it 
through the mercy of God rode trium- 
phant and uninjuticd, whi.ft the fleet of 
France was nearly deflroytd. A thtrd 
memorable circumftance wjs, that the 
weather detained a royal bride in a kiiW 
of captivity; by preventing the fqua- 
droD dellined to fetch her from attaining 
accefs to her, and eveo from getting ou( 
of pott. 



fourth, that the vifitationt of fuBfliioe 
were more injurious to the vegetable 
kingdom, than the intenfe frigidity, i 
apprehend that this lall remark alib 
holds good in refpeft to Iceland s 
for durin^r his two yeat's Aay in that 
ifland, Horrehow obferved, that a cer* 
tain garden there,^that was (badowed, 
was more fiourifhing than another WdS 
that was expofed to the fun ; but he er« 
roneouily afcribes the difference to tb« 
difference' of culture. Mr. White fays 
in his Natural Hiflory of Selburne (p. 
228), that *' it IS the repeated meltine 
and freezing of the fnow, that is (^ 
fatal to vegetation, rather than the fe- 
verity of the cold /' and, to the beft of 
my judgement, I think him right. Of 
the injury done to the trees and flirubs 
within my obfervation, I (hall fay little 
till 1 wrUe my Summer Chronicle; for 
till July it will not be fully apparent 
either in whajt manner or in what de- 
gree they really have been affefled. I 
did not lee that any trees were rifted^ 
but the foliage of many of the non-de- 
cidious forts were crifped as paifley fs^ 
by fire, or as grafs is by a hot fun ; 
and of couife they fliivered to atoms, 
the leaves of fome fell off entire ; aod 
the leaves of others remained on dis^- 
gure^d with blotches. The heart* leaved 
phillerea, jellonu-htvxxtd holly (other 
hollies were defaced), butcher's broom« 
Portugal-laurel, favine, and the tribes 
of pine and fir, efcaped. I imagint, 
that! it is the warm quality of the tur- 
pentine that prevents froft from having 
any effe£t on the pines and firs ^ for lo 
unaffe£^ed was that refin by the (late of 
the atmofphere that it exuded freih 
from out of a fpruce (lightly wouod« 
ed during feveral of the coldtd days. 
Jn the box-trees vegetation continued 
a6live during the wlio'e time ; the 
flower-buds perfuing their ulual pio- 
grcfs towards pcrft£lion. The dwarf- 
hazel {Hamamelis ytrginica) (hewed 
its value by producing a fuccelTioo of 
bloffoms from November to the end 
of wii)ter, which were the only flowers 
to be feen from the middle of Decem- 
ber to the middle of February. Qn the 
12th of the lad- named month the female 
flowers of the fi bcrd appeared, and on' 
the 26th fome palm became vifiDle on 



Id this fevere feafoD feveral remarks 
were corroborated that have been made 'the ground- withies. No turgidity was 
by former naturalifls ; of which I will perceivable in the elm-fpray till the 



notice: one, that much illnefa among 
the human fpecies attended the decline 
and breaking up of it ; fecond, that the 
increafe of the cold was gradual ». third, 
that it fuccecded to a wet autumn, and

the progrefs of infcriptions 00 monu*

The flat (lone has maintained its ground 
from the remotefi ages, and fcems, in-

•« A BOUT the end of November a 
•AA. ircry hard froft began, which, 
with Tome fbort tntermifliohs, conrinued 
till the 9th of February, with greater 
fererity than could be- remembered ; 
whereby the river Thames was frozen 
over, and 1 great number of booths 
ereded thereon, wherein were fold all 
forts of merchaodife; and on 19 Janu- 
ary, two Urge oxen were ro^Hed on the 
ice." Maittand's London, I739« p- 33^* 

Such, M^. Urban, is the account of the 
firft hard froft in this century in Eng- 
land, as dcfcribed in the edition of 
M^itland's Hiflory of London, pub- 
lifced a -year before the fccond. Whe- 
ther a fuller account of that in the year 
174O be mentioned in a fubfequrnt edi« 
tion, or in any other Hidory of Lon- 
don, I cannot tell ; but, having no 
other account of it than is recorded in 
your Mifcellany for that year, and be- 
ing difappointed in my fearch for it in 
the **Ciiy Remembraocer," which (hould 
have been a record of ah fuch calami- 
ties, as well as of thofe by plague, Bre, 
or wind, I hope. you will give us a full 
detaif, which perhaps we may not re- 
ceive from the Royal Society till th<s 
time twelvemonth. B. B.

A trU4 Story, 

FOUR miles on the gradually riling 
road, between Wigan and Ormf- 
kirk, the littl« village of UphcUand 
rears its ftony head, on the (ide of a 
htll, commanding an extenfive view 
over a rich country. This happy retreat 
is as fajDous for clear air as for good 
profpe^ls. Near the remains of an old 
priory, long ago violently difmantled, 
there is a Ichool, under the care of a 
clergyman, which not only produces 
excellent fcholar^, but as ruddy faced 
and contented boys as any in the 
kingdom. Nor is this village wanting 
in the elegant manners of polite life; 
and to a fair inhabitant we are obliged 
ior being ^the means of refcuing the 
JukjtQ of this relation froch diHrefs, by 
recommending her to a family in the 
neighbourhood, the owners of a hand- 
fome old feat, not dignified when we 
call it Hofpiulitjf'bmli, (o deferving of 
the xsxXt^ m (he eld ingli/b mtaninj^ of 
the word* 



Brtty H . . . .n, our heroine, was 
the fecond daughter of an induffrioue 
couple, with fix children, living at 
Upbotland. The father worked at a 
neighbouring colliery; the eld^ft girl 
remained with the mother, cmp'oycd 
about a little farm, in taking care of 
the COWS; and, when that duty wat 
over, in rpinning. Every particular, to 
the credit of^ people in humblj; life, 
ought to be mentioned, to induce otheit 
to habits of employment; and, in juf- 
tice to the parents, their children are 
fpokcn of as if there had not been one 
fprig of idleoefs amongd them. Let 
us tell you, the fpinnio;ii- wheel is a 

, chearful attendant to a good ditty; and, 
although it may not be faid to tura 
round with much melody, it wheels 
about with li(e and profit, and fets oflF 
a fong to very great advantage. 

This honed man, not having eni- 

, plovment for his children above ground^ 
took Betty, at nine years of age, and a 
brother, of feven, into the coal-pic 
with him. Thefe little folks Toon put 
their (Iringtb to their baiket, dragging 
the coals from the workmen to the pit, 
and by thefe efforts they did the duty, 
as it is called, of ont drauoer : ir it 
with pride we m-^kc it knownto littte 
children, that Betty and ^er brother, at 
this early age, cTearcd their parents 
/fven /billings a week j here was a 
tiedfute, a f AssfaS^on ihey were taught 
to feel by example, and by the cn- 

. couragement given to tliem. 

Bur, alas ! in the midlt of their hum- 
ble happinefs, one fatal day, as the 
father was fixing a *bafkst to be wound 
up, fome (lones fell fco;n the top of the 
pit, and kiilcd him upon the Ipot. I 
wi(h it were polfible to avoid fpcaking 
of this accident, and the dreadful con- 
fequence; it makes the head ache to 
go on, and yet it would be injaftice to 

^ know it and pifs it over, as it fcts oflf 
the young perfon, I am going to intro- 
duce to your admiration, in the moil 
favf>urable light in che world. 

A'l was grief; — the faithful partncf 
of his life funk under it;— (he bccnve 
inll^ntly der^nt^cd, and never after- 
wards recovered her fcnfes, a viftim to 
a feeling heart, and a l\roni^ proof of 
the intriiific ralu^e of her hufband. Thus 
circumfianced, the parifh was obliged 
to feparate her from her childran, and 
kept her five years. The eldcft girl, 
the fpinner, married fome time after 
the cajamity. 'Two boys, aged nine 
and feren, were bound apprentices b^
