Im Ote preface to the Firat Part of the Hundbbdth Volume of our labours, 
review was taken of the longline of its predeeeaaors ; and such observations 
were made upon their contents as were consistent with modesty and truth. On 
kttaining a goal which few periodical works have ever reached, it waa impoasi- 
ble not to feel — and feeling, it would have been affectation to conceal — sensa- 
lioDs of ciultation at the almoat unprecedented success which haa attended our 
homble, but zealous, efforts foe the promotion of Historical, Antiquarian, and 
Biographical Literature. 

Success has not, however, induced us to relai our exertions. Thou^ 
UK liad the vanity to think that much was done, we were sensible that 
npntatioo is more difficult to prC9Erve than to acquire ; and that It la im- 
poaaiMe ta maintain the position in which we etond, without calling into action 
•il oar resources, and allowing the same zeal, the same moderation, and the 
Mine political principles, to influence our future conduct, which have procured 
for us the co-operation of our friends, and the favour of the public, in our long, 
iaobtmsire, and, we trust, useful career. 

For the fii^ time in the annata of the Gentleman's M^azine, a charge nf libel 
has been preferred against it ; and the proprietors have during the last six months 
been subjected to the expense and vexation of appearing in a Court of Justice, 
to vindicate themselves from the accusation. Upon this subject, however, we 
shall say little : silence best becomes the successful party, and it is ungenerous 
to tannt a feeble and vanquished enemy; but we may advert to the circum- 
•tuce, as evidence that old age has not impaired our energies, and that, though 
•crapolonsly carefiil to avoid wounding the feelings of others, we are as ready 
U the most vigorous of our contemporaries to spealc the truth, and to repress 
empirical arrogance. 

One circumstance peculiarly characterises this volume, in the new feature 
given to the work by the introduction of Classicai. coMSiiiNiCiTioNa. For this 
idea we were indebted to a gentleman of profound learning ; who, unlike many 
projectors, ha materiaiiy assisted ia carrying his own design into execution, 
since many valuable papers on that subject are from his pen; and he has thus 
itimnlated other correspondents to enter an arena which affords room for the 
display of one of the highest branches of intellectual attainments. 

In the political world changes have recently taken place of too important a 
nature to he passed over in silence. To Ministers who governed the country 
upon principles which, though acceptable to the wealthy and the powerful, be- 
cwne ^ndually more and more obnoxious to less favoured classes, has succeeded 
a Cabinet which may be cooaidered the representatives of Ubei^ o'^mvo&a. 


Their accession to office has as yet been too recent to be productive of more 
than an abundance of flattering promises, from which we augur the happiest 
results. Without ascribing to those personages all the qualities which their 
adherents claim for them, the uniform consistency and high character of the 
Premier, and the extraordinary talents of many of his colleagues, justify a re- 
liance upon their capacity to remedy existing evils. For their dispontion to do so 
there is this security, that as a Cabinet they owe their creation to public opi- 
nion, and the moment they fail in realizing the just expectations they have 
raised, by seeking support from the aristocraey instead of the people — by which 
expression we mean the middle class — ^that moment will be the last of their 
ministerial existence. Possessed, therefore, of the confidence of the country, 
and powerful in the strength of their own talents, we feel justified in antici- 
pating from their measures those improvements. which the effects of time, and 
the progress of knowledge unperatively require. If those changes have not the 
immediate result of producing all that could be desired, they will at least tend 
to tranquillize the present agitated state of things, by imparting a unanimity of 
feeling, and by causing the advocates of amendment to direct their hopes to 
the legitimate quartet, instead of looking for the attainment of their wishes to 
political meetings, which have too often produced that which they ostensibly 
seek to prevent. 

But the present Ministers excite hopes upon another and to us ex- 
tremely interesting subject. It has long been a disgrace to England, that 
Science and Literature receive slight encouragement from the Government, 
compared with the fostering care which they meet with in other countries; 
and for the want of which, in the present deteriorated state of the public 
taste, standard Literature has almost disappe-ared, whilst in Science we 
are far behind our continental neighbours. At no former period were there so 
many persons in office who are known to the world by their literary produc- 
tions ; and under the auspices of a Brougham and a Mackintosh, aided by 
such of their colleagues as have sought that permanent fame which letters, and 
letters only, confer, we are sanguine in believing that something worthy of so 
literary an Administration will be done to remove this stigma from the national 

For ourselves we have little to add. It is our earnest intention to continue 
in the path which we have trod, with 3tm but quiet steps, for an entire cen- 
tury. We purpose, with the assistance of the proud list of patrons and friends 
to whom we are so eminently indebted, to adhere to those principles, to promote 
those valuable departments of knowledge, and to display that moderation and 
consistency which have procured us the highest objects of human ambition — the 
approbation of the good, and the applause of the wise*

CtERicut says. *' An »ble charge hat 
T»ren receotly delivered to the Clergv of the 
p!o€ete of Hereford by Mr. Arciideaeon 
Wetherell on the suhjeel of Church repairs. 
With one item I wm i-articularly struck, and 
think that it has so important a bearing upon 
a very common act of barbarism in tht re- 
pairs of our Churches, that it ought to hm 
generally known. Every man of taste feelii 
that to deprive a Gothic window of its muU 
lioos and tracery, ia to spoil it» by makins a 
mere pigeon hole of the orifice. T1ieArcK« 
deacon observed, that under dceay of the 
mullions it was very cnmmoD for a carpenter 
to sabstitute mere oaken uprighu ; wlitreat 
by obtaining only some free-stmie, a nionii- 
menUl sculptor could easily aupply new md- 
li«>ns in fac simile. He accordingly rtcom- 
mends the Clergy to use their ntaaft ex- 
ertions to prevent disfigurement rif the 
Churches, in the particular alluded to, and 
all others fas far as circumstances permit) 
which imply unseemly and irrelevant iiintr- 
vations. In my own case, I cm attest that 
I stopi-ed the insertion of a common wooden 
frame in a niudow of my own Church, and 
caused a suitable one of Gothic muHionsi 
accordant with the other windows in |)attern, 
to l»e put up ; and that it was well executed 
by a tomb-stone carver for the humble sum 
of two guineas.*' 

Various paragraphs hs\ ing appeared in some 
daily Journals relative to the Articles of En- 
quiry sent by direction of the Bishop of 
London to the Churchwardens of each parish 
within the Diocese, previous to the Viniu • 
tion which he has lately holden ; we think 
it but justice to his Lordship to state, that 
we are informed upon good authority that 
juch Articles are invariably sent to Church- 
wardens previous to every Visitation, in con- 
formity with the 1 1 9th Canon, and that those 
now used are (with the exception of some 
few omissions) the same as tht Articles 
issued by the Archbishop of Cantcrburyi 
and which were drawn up by two most emi- 
nent civilians. 

Miss Tate's Alms-houses at Mitcham 
(of which we gave a vit w in nart i. p. fiOl) 
were endowed by Miss Tate, for widows or 
unuiarried women of respectable character, 
and members of the Cnurch of England. 
li is necessary that the women sliall have a 
legal settlement at Mitcham, and they 
should have resided there five years; be 
fifty years old or upwards ; and not have 
received parochial reiiif within five years of 
thtir admission. There is no allowance for 
fuel, nor any beyond three shillings a week. 
Tlii preseDt trustets are the Vicar, the Rev. 

J. H. Mapleton, Sir J. W. Lubbock, BarC 
G. M. Hoare, esq. and W. Simpson, esq ; 
liut Miss Tate has reserved the »ppointnsent 
of the women during her own life. 

Mr. Mauoen informs us, ** By the lil>e- 
rality of Mr. Hamper, the tru»tees of the 
British Museum are now in posnession of 
another impression of the Evrtham seal, 
which supplies tlie deficiencies of the one 
noticed by me in your Magazine. Tlie word* 
** AisT WAS swoN,'* (sec Part i. pp. a 10, 
8.99.) are here so clear, as to leave no 
donbt as to the |>n»priety of the legend, 
which, I think, may now be consigned to 
fiiturSty, without afiprehension of attracting 
anj further commentaries on it." 

In answer to the Inquiry of Eclecticds, 
we l)eg to state, thsil? the panssge quoted by 
the Reviewer of Moore*s Life of Byn»n, 
p. 150, is takeA from a volume of posthu- 
mous Sermons by the Rev. Dr. 'ames Lind- 
say,, of Bow, a volume dibtinguisihed for the 
elegauce of its style and for the elevated 
tone of its piety. We believe it was printed 
by suliscription. 

A YoRK^^H nE Collector states, "It 
must grati^ every collector of Topography 
to be informed, that two plates were pub- 
lished of the Scaffolding employed to re- 
store Beverley Minister to its per|>endicular 
Tsee part i. p. 590] : they are folio sizcy

the north front of the great Cross Islet 
which overhung four feet beyond its liase, 
and was brought hack ibt4» its place by 
means of the timber frame here described.' 
Tlie other is a * Section of the Trusses and 
Building. When the trusses were fixed on 
both sides, the wall was cut to the centre, 
level with the base of the said trussfs, that 
it might give way upon the raising the 
whole machinery, and so come into its place ; 
and was in the mesn time sup|Mirted by se- 
veral wedges, which were gradually taken 
out as the building came Itack into its 
place.' The prints very satis&cturily ex- 
plain the uatuie of the machinery used, 
which has always been much admired as a 
most ingenious contrivance.

the 5Q0. The same Judual is 
railed Hoel ill. by some writers; he 
extended his dominion, says M. Oe- 
laporie, over nearly the whole of Bri- 
tanny, which is panly accounted for 
by his marriage wiih the heiress of 
Ylli. He took the lille of king. The 
historian just quotetl throws no light 
on the n^arriage, but merely says, ** he 
espoused Praielle, by whom he had 
several children." 

Jiidual died about 6S0. His son 
and successor was the celebrated Judi- 
cail, whom tradition represents as a . 
match for the sloiKciit antagonist when 
a boy, but who shines in history as a 
very amiable character.* He married 
Moron, daughter of Even, King of 
Ach. One of his sons, named Arnec, 
was bishop of the little diocese. It ■ 
seems that he resigned it in favonr of 
St. Vigan, his neighbour. The legend 
sjy^, that he promised him as much 
territory as he couid traverse, while he . 
himself was asleep. Arocc betook 
himself to slumber, and Vigan mount- 
ed his horse: but it was on the steeple 
of St. Eloi, between Landerneau and 
Lesneven ; and taking a spring from 
thence, he traversed the whole of the 
diocese in the air before Arnec awoke, 
and it was accordingly ceded to him. 

The kingdom appears to have revert- 
ed to temporal princes, for Argan, or 
Arastan, reigned in the timcofChar- 
lemagne. (it might be an apanage.) 
This prince accompanied Charles in 
his expeditions, was distingui>hed as a 
soldier, and fell at Roncevaux in 77B.f 
His exploits were a favourite theme of 
the Breton Troubadours. His succes- 
sor was Prinitis, of whom nothing is 
recorded, or indeed of any later sove- 

It has escaped the keen antiquary of 
Les Toureiles, that Ylli is a word 
meaning a division, or something 
parted o(F.| It is natural to suppose 
that this little kingdom had been de- 
tached from some other, and thence 
obtained its name. Too insignificant 
to be an object oT cu] i iity, and no 
larger than an En^lisii ii(J)i(MiiHti*s

property, it may have experienced 
more happiness than larger states, 
where kings can only see with the 
eyes of ministers. That it should have 
remained unconquered in those turbu- 
lent times, supposes patriotism in the 
inhabitants, aflection towards their 
chiefs, and a propitious course of cir- 
cum!>taiices. The name of Trrgarari' 
tec speaks hishly for the character of 
the people, and is no trivial instance 
of the value of etymology in coirobo- 
rating history. It is |>03siblc that a 
diligent search of the early Welsh 
Bards may throw some light on the 
events of this interesting little king- 
dom, or on the names of its princes. 


Mr. Urban, Jw/y 20. 

BEING resident bcttveen the Se- 
vern and the Wve, 1 ha%'e often 
observed the injury and inconvenience 
sustained by the neighbourhood, for 
want of a bridge over the Severn at 
Newnham ; traxellers in carriages being 
compelled to go round either by Glou- 
cester or the Old Passage, from twenty 
or more miles out of their way, if their 
direction be the opposite populous 
country, and the parts beyond. I have 
therefore collected, for the information 
of my neighbours, various matters con- 
cerning bridges, which I think it may 
be amusing and useful to lay before 
the public, as they do not apply to a 
particular ca^e only. 

It is well known that the erection 
of bridges has become so exceedingly 
expensive, and so accompanied witn 
heavy loss to the shareholders, that a 
virtual prohibition exists to the in- 
crease of such conveniences, except 
at the public cost. Nevertheless, I l>eg 
to premise, that 1 am not such a Vandal 
{18 to object to stone bridges, chain 
bridges, or any frs/ihinas, where they 
can be afforded; only that where they 
cannot be afforded, expense is not to 
bo doctrinal against convenience; stones 
;ind mortar ag.iinst ten per cent.; faci- 
lity of conimunienlion, which aug- 
ments conmierce and the value of es- 
tate?, against mereoul«;icIc show. But 
more money gained will cause money 
lo be spent. The connlry, whifeh 
has exhibited the best modes of en- 
countering the difficulty is America;

Bridge over the Severn at Nemnham. 


as regards Newnhiin, it that no rocky 
bottom it to be round, except at such 
a depth that piles are astless, and the 
•ubbtitule mutt he sunk rock ; and as- 
to floating piers, there being no depth 
of water, as in the Saint Lawrence, the 
navigation of the river would be ini- 

KKled, and falls, as at Old London 
ridge, be created. " Dig till you 
come to the solid ground,"* is certainly 
an ancient and sound architectural 
adage, and taking the main opening 
(580 feel) of the famous Suspension 
Bridge over the Menai for a standard, 
three piers would be required. But, 
whatever may be the hazard attached 
to a sandy foundation, it is certain that 
it has been counteracted without exca- 
vation down to rock. Pliny (xxxvi. 14) 
informs us, that the famous temple of 
the Ephesian Diana was founded in a 
marshy soil to guard against earth- 
quakes, and that the foundations might 
not be laid in slippery ground, ** calca- 
tis ea [fundamenia] cjrbonibus, dein 
velleribus lanoe, substravere ;'* i. e. they 
underlaid the foundaliotit with trodden 
C9ai§, afterwards with fleeces of wool ; 
whence no doubt came the legend that 
London Bridge was built u|M)n wool- 
sacks. This temple was in existence 
long after the time of St. Paul. Alex- 
ander, when he wanted to pass the 
Arosis, demolished the villages, and, 
laying the materials on blocks of stone, 
promptly formed a bridge. (Pratt's Q. 
Curt. ii. 30). Nor does it appear to be 
the fact, that where there is an inter- 
vening artificial sound stratum, the 
substratum beneath is of much mo- 
ment, for Alberti says, you may light 
upon a country like that of the Adria- 
tic and Venice, where, under the eon* 
fe«/t/ta, you can find almost nothing 
ut . loose mud ( soiutu m Hmum ). ( De 
re«difieat. fol. xxxii. b.) Our ances- 
tors teem to have acted in this way by 
making their starlings. 

** The origiosl Cauodatioa of OU Loadon 
Bridge appears to have been laid at lev wa- 
ter, as the heads of the small piles were a 
little above that level ; they were chiefly of 
eln, and driven in three rows, all round the 
sidce and ends of the plen, about six or 
seven feet deep, and ten inches square, upon 
an avenge. Between these piles a quantity 
of loose rubble stones were laid without ce- 
ment, and upon this were bedded three strong 
sleepers, about 9 1 inches wide and 9 thick.

This timber was perfectly sound after the 
lapse of now above six eenturies, and proven 
a strong practical instance of the preserva- 
tion of wood under water, when uneaposadr 
to the action of air.*'— i^rcA^so/. xxiii. 1 8. 

In building our ancient bridges, the 
custom was to turn the water-course, 
make starlings, and upon them raisef 
the piers ; and if they had sunk their 
starlings to low- water level, and not 
made their piers unnecessarily thick, 
there would have been no (alls. It 
does not appear, from the London or 
Bristol old bridges, that they piled un" 
der the starlings. (See Seyer's Bristol.) 
Nor is it at all probable, quick as are 
the sands of the Severn, and various' 
other sands, that a superstructure raised 
upon the hull of the Royal George, the 
Rother-ship, or a Severn trow bedded 
in sand, would subside much from the 
superincumbent weight ; for Vauxhall 
bridge has its piers laid in boxes. As 
to the Severn, the experiment could 
be easily made by examining the depth 
to which the causeway on the Arling*' 
ham side, use<l from time immemorial^ 
has subsided ; and furthermore, the ford 
at low water for carriages has been 
used from time immemorial, so that it 
can never have been undermined, and 
must be firm enough for a timber- 
bridge, or an artificial bed of stone laid 
upon it. In excavation, the A me* 
r^can mode is twice as cheap as the 
English, both in bridge and canal- * 
making. Instead of human labour be- 
ing employed in (/rggtng', ate;«m or two ' 
ploughs the surface with a very strong 
plough, the men remove the earth as 
last as it is turned up ; they then plough 
ajcain, and so continue the process (if 
the stratum be not rocky) till the job is 

A briiige at Newnham, unless sop- 
ported by Government (and in all na- 
tions except this, such public works 
are so supported,) is, however, not like- 
\y to find patronage. The people of 
Gloucester and the Old and New Pas- 
sages, have a strong interest in op- 
posing snch a measure ; but there is no 
reasonable objection to a double-boat 
ferry like that used at Philadelphia, 
and the profits of such a convenience 
might form a fair criterion as to the " 
pruilence of ulterior measures. There 
are turnpike roads in communicatioa ' 
on^ both sides, and no approaches re^ 
quired, nor acts of parliament, nor any ' 
outlay except that which does not re- 
quire serious consideration. Indeed one

awhile well arranged lights and shades 
are necessary to produce a fine effect in 
patming, an admirer of Shaks|)eare is 
justihed in maintaining by analogy, 
Ihat the pathos and dignity of his poel 
Ileal scenes are uninjured by their juxta 
position wiih comic dialogues: 

" Ewjh gives to each a double charm. 
Like pearl's upon an Ethio])'s arm." 

But to return to Rosmunda, which 
by the way was Alficri's favourite pro- 
duction, although it is generally consi- 
dered inferior to his other pieces. 
Many persons who had never read the 
Italian author, but who were in some 
degree familiar with English history, 
attended lUc Salie Favari, folly expect- 
ing to see the enraged Queen of Henry 
11. give full scope to her jealousy on 
the beautiful Rosamond Clifford. It 
IS, however, the daughter of a King of 
Lombardy who is so called : she has 
been comoelled to marry Alhoin, who 
had murcfered her father ^ she has ex- 
cited an officer named Amalchide to 
dispatch him, and in recompense has 
given him her hand, and the crown of 
Lombardy. A Iboin has left a daughter 
by his first wife; she is named Ro- 
milda, and Rosmunda discovers that 
her husband Amalchide has fixed his 
affections on her, while she is devoted 
to Ildovaldo. Rosmunda wishes to 
have her step-daughter assassinated, 
and being unable to accomplish that 
cruel purpose, she at last dispatches her 
with her own hand. Ildovaldo and 
Amalchide, like most rivals, are in full 
effervescence; and to render the con- 
flict of their passions more intricate, 
Amalchide is indebted to Ildovaldo 
for having saved his life in battle. 
When the lovelv object of their strife 
It lost to them both, by the vindictive 
Queen's violence, Ildovaldo kills him- 
self in despair; while Amalchide ut- 
ters threats of direful vengeance, to 
which the Queen replies, by pointing 
to her victim. 

According to the chroniclers of Lom- 
bardv, the Queen had given her hus- 
band a poisonous draught; but Amal- 
chide having discovered the faul qua- 
lity of the hquor, when he had swal- 
lowctl only half, he compelled-his wife 
to finish It, and thus deprived her of 
the satisfaction of surviving him. 

The part of Amalchide was per- 
formed by Paladini; that of Ildovaldo 
by Colomberti ; Rosmunda was repre- 
seoted by Signora Internari, and Ro- 
miJdM by Signora Bclloni. 


They are classed among the leading 
performers of their country, and their 
respective parts were executed with 
considerable dignity and propriety. 
Their well-accentuated pronunciation, 
their grave delivery, and the bold lan- 
guage of the piece, formed a striking 
contrast with the insipid jingling of 
the iibretti usually produced at this 
theatre. If the performances do not 
present any striking feature of excel- 
lence, we must bear in mind the great 
disadvantage under which the Italian 
drama labours : every person of talent 
IS drawn to the Opera by the exclusive 
patronage which that species of repre- 
sentation enjoys. Madame Pasta is an 
illustration of this case; she has clearly 
shewn on many occasions, that if her 
fine voice had not placed her on an 
eminence as a caniairice, she would 
have shone as an actress. Zucchelli 
and Pelligrini are also as interesting by 
their acting, as by their singing ; and 
we may fairly presume that the appear- 
ance of a few siart would produce re- 
sults to the Italian drama, similar to 
those which the genius of Garrick and 
Kemble, Lekain and Talma, has ef- 
fected on the London and Paris boards. 
■ La Casa Disahitata was well adapted 
to rcfmote the ennui occasioned by the 
tragedy. The narrative is founded on 
the ingenuity of a steward, who, wish- 
ing to enjoy the use of a house which 
the proprietor is desirous of selling, 
plays ihe part of a ghost to deter pur- 
chasers. A poor poet passes the night 
there, and with a pistol convicts the 
ghost of substantiality. This piece is 
very lively, and abounds with sallies of 
wit ; from its reception it will no doubt 
be again represented. Taddei, who 
performed the part of the poet, was full 
of humour, and kept the house in a 
continued roar of lauj^hter by his lu- 
dicrous pantomime. It is related tliat 
when this piece was performed at Tu- 
rin in 1824, before the Queen of Sardi- 
nia, a gentleman was sent to desire the 
pistols miehi not be fired. The order 
was complied with ; but instead of sub- 
stituting a sword, the poet used an un- 
loadetl pistol, and the ^host fell wounded 
notwithstanding! The manager was 
not so ready as the mountebank, who, 
having no fire arms, announced that 
the battles in his booth would be fought 
with swords and staves, instead of mus- 
kets, for fear of alarming ike ladies.

On the fnviniion of Lettert. 


Law were ddit ered before Moies wrote 
thb PenUteuch, and if some knowledge 
of letters had not existed previonsly to 
that period, the legislator would scarcely 
have been able to understand what was 
there written, except by immediate in- 
spiration ; and he expresses nothing of 
thai surprise and pleasure which would 
certainly have been elicited if those 
tables had contained the first alphabe- 
tical writing he had seen. But the 
circumstance is related with much ele- 
gance as an ordinary transaction tit 
this respect. The Tables were delivered 
into the hands of Moses for the express 
use of the people of Israel* in a manner 
which intimates that Letters were not 
unknown to them. 

The general knowledge and use of 
letters amongst the Hebrews, is not 
derived, however, merely from impli- 
cation, but is -plainly ancf explicitly de- 
clared. They are directed by God 
himself to teach the written Law to 
their children ; and to write it them' 
selves on the gates and posts of their 
houses*. Now from the slow progress 
which this species of knowledge made 
amongst other peoples and nations, it 
can scarcely be admitted that Mosea 
was the first inventor of letters, be- 
cause we have direct evidence to prove 
that the Israelites perfectly understood 
their nature and application almost 
immediately after the tables were deli- 
vered ; and their rapid advances in this 
art would otherwise be highly impro- 
bable, and almost rise to an impossibi- 
lity. The miraculous intervention of 
the Deity in this case cannot be ad- 
mitted, because the writings of Moses 
do not contain the most obscure hint 
to sanction such an hypothesis ; and if 
the legislator and the people had been 
divinely instructed in the use of letters, 
it must follow that an endowment so 
extraordinary and beneficial would 
have merited a peculiar specification, 
equally with the gift of tongues con- 
ferred on the Apostles of Jesus Christ. 
But the Hebrew language had arrived 
at a degree of perfection which has 
never been exceeded ; and Moses ac- 
tually quotes a pusage from an exist- 
ing; written record, called " the book 
ofthe wars of the Lord.''i<> 

If Moses were the inventor of let- 
ters, we should be at a loss to account 
for the high degree of learning and ci- 

* Deut. c. vi. V. 9. 
1' Numb. c. xxu v. 14. 

vilization which the Egyptians un- 
doubtedly possessed," altnough i t wasi 
strongly impregnated with superstition, 
at from this source he derived his 
early instruction;" and it is doubtful 
whether all this extensive wiadom and 
knowled^, in which they surpassed 
every nation in the world,^' could have 
been communicated and acquired in 
that abridged period of human ex- 
istence, but by the aid of letters. 
'*The very old Egyptians used to write 
on linen things which they designed 
should last lon^ ; and those characters' 
continue to this day, as we are assured 
by those who have examined the 
mummies %vith attention. Is it unna- 
tural to imasine that Moses, who was 
learned in all the arts of Egypt, wrote 
after this manner on linen ?'i^ And 
does it not hence follow that writing 
was one of the arts of Egypt, before 
the time of Moses ? 

The inscription lefl on a column by 
the Phoenicians, whom Joshua drove 
oat of Canaan,^* must prove that they 
were acquainted with certain intel- 
ligible characters to express their ideas, 
which had been reduced to such adis- 
tind and regular form, as to be under- 
stood in after a^.^' And this consi- 
deffttion makes it clear that letters were 
DOC a new invention in the time of 
Jothoa. For though it be affirmed 
that the knowled^ of writing was re- 
vealed to Moaes in its utmost perfec- 
tion, yet it will scarcely be urged that 
these nations, miserably sunk in ido- 
latry, could so soon have reaped the

be was the son of Zcrah of [laira, ihe 
grandson of Esau ; and of course lived

And this conjecture, ai to the time of 
Job, is rendered very probable, became 
his friend Eliiihai, who is lepreienied 
as a venerable old man. Is laid by 
Moses^ lo be the eldest son of Eiau.

Hence, whether Job wrote this book 
himself, or left materials behind him 
in a visible form, relating the principal 
events of his calamitous life, he must 
have been acquainted with the art of 
writing, otherwise his record would 
not have been intelligible to posterity; 
and all the theories of learned men on 
the origin of this book, do not contain 
the slightest hint that it was trans* 
mitted through the medium of oral 
tradition. Job, in the paroxysm of hit 
anguish and complaint exclaims, " O, 
that my words were now written ! O, 
that mine adversary had written a 
bookr*^" These exclamations can 
imply nothing less, than that writing 
was practised in the time of Job ; for 
language will scarcely furnish a name 
for an art or science quite unknown ; 
and this art is referred to by Job in a 
familiar manner, as if his friends were 
perfectly acquainted with it. It is very 
strongly presumed that this book was 
written oy Moses before the Deliver- 
ance, because no allusion whatever is 
made to that miraculous event. Now 
if this book had been a subsequent 
composition of the great Lawgiver, and 
written during the |[)eriod when the Is- 
raelites sojourned in the wilderness, 
some reference to, or illustration of the 
circumstances attending their protract- 
ed wanderings, would have been in- 
evitable. And Gray, in his preface to 
Schuiteus on this book, explicitly as- 
serts that it was composed by Moses 
during his residence with Jethro in 
the land of Midian, Jrom ancient re» 
cords in the custody, most probably, of 
his father-in-law, to comfort his afflict- 
ed brethren during their captivity in 
Hgypt. And this would be many years 
before the promulgation of the written 
law. Geo. Oliver.

Mr. Urban, Shaftethury, June 26. 

IN the following fugitive fragment 
is a trait so fraught with genuine 
goodness, that I am induced to request 
you to place it upon record. 

As the late Rev. William Douglas, 
Chancellor of the diocese of Salisbury, 
was returning to the palace of the ve- 
nerable prelate his father, (the sun 
shining with effulgence, no cooling 
zephyr even in the shade,) he perceived 
on the high road the most lamentable 

^* Job, c. xtx. V. 33. 1 c. %%x\. v. bb. 

motion of a fellow creature, wending 
his lonely way, slowly and sorrowfoliji 
with parched tongue and wounded feet^ 
that ever the eye of pity glanced upon. 

The name of a sailor sounded in the 
ear of this christian divine like the 
name of a friend, and after the strictest 
interrogatories he found the object be* 
fore him to be faithful and honest in 
his report. This quickened a lambent 
flame of benevolent generosity in hit 
heart, and, very unlike the Jew of o)d« 
" who passed by on the other side ef 
the way" he ordered his sermnt to 
alight, and stepping out of his carriage, 
desired them both to enter, and he 
would drive. I saw their approach to 
the city ; the gates of the palace toon 
closed on them, and a worthy defender 
of our shores was thus hospitably re- 
ceived I but he had not been used to 
march, and for a time he sank under 
it ; and even amidst nil comfort, where 
the ever bountiful hand of Providence 
had conducted him, he would rather 
have been on the turbulent bosom of 
that ocean and with those comrades 
where his courageous heart was ceo<« 

I next saw him. Sir, ascend the steps 
of the portico of the Council House at 
Salisbury, and stand by the portly fi- 
sure of his benefactor, who with his 
fine and sonorous voice had called 
" Bassctt *' from the immense crowd 
assembled to witness the ceremonial of 
presenting the city's freedom to the 
Hero of the Nile, in his progress, with 
a numerous retinue, to the Abbey of 
Fon thill. When introduced, the vete- 
ran was immediately recognized by 
Lord Nelson, as one of those daring 
and brave men who would either van- 
uish or die, and who was under his 
ag " when glory like a dazzling eagle 
stood"* on the brow of the veteran, 
and when ** Egypt's groans and cries^t 
had aroused his country to effect her 

After his introduction to his Lord- 
ship, he descended the steps of the 
portico again, and, mingling with the 
crowd, with a light heart exhibited 
" the King's picture in ^old,** a present 
from the Admiral to drink his Majes- 
ty's health. 

He was afterwards employed by his 
benefactor in the garden of his vicarage 
at Gillingham, Dorset.

" glorified,'" the highest link In the 
ascending chain of verbs, la an aorist, 
and joined with Ihree oihcr words, all 
having an altnsion to past etenls, ihe 
pasSiige fails altogriher in promoting 
the Calriniilic hyj»the>i>, since it can- 
not, merely lo coincide wilh ihal hj- 
poihesis, be made to look forward in- 
slead of backward. Finally, he should 
hare piven in ihc passaee wilh a para- 
pliraslic reading, agreeahly lo the pre- 
ceding solution, in some aui^h iiiotle as 
ihls: Those In nhnm it was fore-or- 
dained by God ihai the Gospel should 
be made known. He has now actoallj 
called ; and those whom He has called 
He has jnsliEied, (i, e. ulaccd in a stale 
of juslificaiion by bapiism), and ihose 
whom Hehas jusliRed he has glorified 
by His gruce. and all ihe other privi- 
leges of the Gos])el Covenant.'' Bishop 
Bird Sumner, at p. 39, quotes some 
pnssflHcs from the New Teslsnient, 
which he iliiiiks" convey the idea of 
appoinlment''[on God's pan, and con- 
sctiuenlly that ihev appear In favour 
ptcdestinalion]. Now, as a scholar 
and divine. Bishop Bird Sumner, one 
would suppose, might have known 
that it is ihe Intntlalion ontif of Ihote 
paiiiiges, and not the passages Mens- 
jrlvei, that come within ihc Calvinis- 
tic ohliqui\y oF vision. For example; 
the Bishop quotes " The Lord added 
to ihc Church such asshouM be saved.'' 
Ifiihe intended that this addition to 
the Church being made by " Me Lord,'' 
favours Cakinisni, ihe argument is 
conlemplible j for " every oilier good 
and perfect gift is of ibc'Lotd ;" and 
if il be contended that the words "such 
as ihould be saved " implies a peraooal 
election losalvaiion, il betrays a blame- 
able carelessness as lo the Greek, wliere 
ihe expression <rv^a^'mu( being a par- 
ticiple of the present and imperfect in- 
dicative mood, cannot imply anything 
proiptclive or decreed le te: and, in- 
stead of being translated " such as 
jAdu/J be saved,'' ought to have been 
translalcd" such as nier* saved" — ihat 
is, such as were placed by bapiism, 
faith, and repentance, in an incipient 
slate of salvation 1 which, as aT/^ll(,H■3s, 
subiequentlf. to he " worked out." 
The next qiioiaiion adduced by Bishop 
Bird Suinnei is, " Ai titan') u wett «i- 
J;iinrd to (te[naVViEe,\ii:Vt«>ici" 't^i'sit 



Om Bishop SumnerU ** Jpottolie PreachingJ' 


he mrght have known, and should have 
exphiined, that Ti7»/Jiiifoi does not, in 
the Greek, presuppose anything like an 
mbsolote decree, or any decree at all, 
but simply *' dispoted*' or *' prepared ;** 
i. e. they were disposed in their minds 
for the reception of the Gospel, by the 
fyreaching of Paul and Barnabas. Be- 
aides, the Bishop, by adhering impli- 
citly to the English, has falsely placed 
the punctuation ; and thereby added to 
the supposed Calvinislic tone of the 
pesssge. The English Tcrsion sunds 
as if the Greek |)assage had stood in 
this construing order— rf7«/]tAfvoi tU ^''^9 
ettttnof, whereas the punctnaiion of the 
Greek should place it in the follow- 
ing construing order — ivirtvauf tU ^«»V 
oZofyiov ; it should be so distinguished 
by the commas, as that tU i»tnf majy con* 
nect with the verb, not the participle, 
thus : ivlrtvaekff oaoi iamv Tf7a7pryo», 
tk ^wt!y aUifwv ; that is, as many of 
them as were prepared, [or collected 
together t for the Hebrew of Exod. xxix. 
33, is rendered by some rclrlofMu, and 
by the LXX. ^vfciyu] believed in for 

firofessed their belief in] everlasting 
ife. Viewed thus. Bishop Bird Sum- 
ner's idea of the Calvintstic aspect of 
this passage appears not well founded. 
In the next quotation which the Bishop 
adduces, his fears of a Calvinistic con- 
stniction would make it appear that 
he was only an English reader of the 
scriptures, orthat he thought the clergy, 
whom he addresses, such. He quotes 
from Jude thus: ** Certain men had 
crept in unawares, who were before of 
old ordained unto this condemnation/' 
He would have helped our anti-Cal- 
vinistic cause much more, had he, in- 
stead of abiding by the received ver- 
sion, shown, as is attempted in the 
passages above explained, its utter in* 
correctness, TlaXen v^yfy^a/iA/uifyoi is in- 
correctly translated "before ordained." 
Now the Bishop seems to think, from 
his citation of this passage, that the 
doom of these persons had been of old 
written in the book of fate ; whereas 
vdXeu v^ty^aijijjiifot refers only to the 
punishment of such characters having 
been predicted nf old in the scriptures. 
Really, writers should be more cau- 
tious. One j-egrets to find a man of 
Bishop Bird Sumner's abilities treating 
of prescience and predestination as sy- 
^obycns (p. 89). M uch of the error on 
-lliit subject has arisen from this very 
ifusibn of terms. 

The Calvinistic errors do not require 
the dull, prosing, abstract reasoning 
Bishop Bird Sumner has adopted ; but 
a^tritical and learned exposure of texts 
which have been divorced from thelf 
contexts, and dragged into the aervice 
of irrespective decrees and other irra- 
tional and unscriptural follies, which 
set the Word of God at variance with 
the Word of God. His style betrays a 
want of that critical nicely, witlKHM 
which no man will combat either CaU 
vinists or Unitarians successfully. Hia 
diction abounds in carelessnesses like 
these passim : He talks of resting 
on a reliance, p. 3 ; of a superiority of 
one part of the service above the other> 
p. 4 ; and of being bound by an obli- 
gation, p. 30. These and numerous 
other tautologies remind one of the ex- 
pression used bv the other Bishop Sooi-* 
ner [of Wincnester], in one of his 
Charges '* the lucre of gain" : and this 
again reminds me of the man who 
tnought the calmness of a walk by ere* 
puscular twilight tended to smooth the 
rough asperities of life I Bishop Bird 
Sumner gravely quotes Baxter (p. 6, 7^ 
8), who, in a ridiculous passage, in 
which he talks of congregations being 
fullr and calls inns ar^ alehouses fa* 
mities, enlarges on the delightfulness 
of " 100 families singing psalms and 
repeating sermons in the streets of a 
country town on Sundays 1 ! '* Does 
Bishop Bird Sumner really wish to see 
such results flow from a zealous and 
able discharge of the clerical duties } 
Bishop Bird Sumner quotes and extols 
Mr. Wilber force.

Mr. Urban, May 10. 

I OFFER you an attempt to explain 
a further portion of one of the Pro* 
phets, who has much engaged my at- 
tention lately. 

In this, the assurance, too strong 
and plain to be mistaken, that Je- 
rusalem is to be occupied again by 
the scattered of Israel, the prediction 
of another siege, and of the prowess of 
the Jews, who have long ceased to be 
a military peofde, their eventual con- 
viction that it was really the Lord of 
Life whom their ancestors nailed to 
the cross, and their ^rief on the dis- 
covery, are topics which, I trust, may 
render this essay interesting, however 
feeble and imperfect the execution.

I SEND you a sketch of a temark-

Ihe parish of Storrington, Sustex. 

» 81 inches high, jabronil 
■I the top, and 6j at the base, i* of a 
dirty reddish brown colour, and in a 
very good ilale of preiervalion. This 
il the targesl and best rormcd of any

made Uf the hand, very perfecl. It 
was fbdndi which is not uncommou, 
with its base or small end upwarilt. 
The coarse cloth in which the bonea 
were usually deposited, wat entirely 
decayed, but the pin or bran faitcninjc 
(also repmenied aboTe) wat in good 
preserTation. The bones were whtic 
and well biinird. 

The difliculty of procuring perfect 
specimens of thcte rude funeral vessels 
of our aiiceilora is wry great, Mag 
half )>aked, or, as some aniiquarlei 
imagine, hakeJ only in the sun ; (bey 
■re 10 very lufi, ihat the iilmiMI care 
inusl be exerted to prevent ilieir fall- 
ing to pirces. Chalk aeenit to pretene 
them best, for [ hate never been able 
to remove those in a perfect iiate, 
which I bare diicoveieil in clay or 
sand. It mny not be out of place, if 
I here reii>:iik tluit these urns are often 
miscalli-d Koinan, Danish, &c. when 
our prcieni kiiowletlge of pottery and 
irpulchral remain* may more prO|)etly 
leroi them British. All ihe Rnoian 
urn* I have acen have been made of 
much belter materials, and appear to 
have bren turned with a luihe. 

I would wish to ask any of your 
learned corres[)ondcnt*, if they inia- 
gine the British ever burned iheir 
dead befoie the Romans invaded this 
couniry. From my own observation*, 
1 slinuld S3y it was a forni borrowetl 
from I he Unmans; and [ conceive those 
tumuli in which we iind ihe skeletons, 
wiih ilags' horns, the bones of dogs, 
birds, ice, 10 be the most ancient form 
of burial th^t was adopted in this island. 
We geiierally Rud these remains at tlie 
lowest part of the tumulus, and the 
urns eithrrin tht; centre or at the side; 
and in aoine It kVould apiieat that lh« 
urni were placed little more than Just 
under the turf; aod indeed in many 
places 1 have sven well burned bonea 
covered only with a stone, not more a foot under ground, and where 
there has not been the leiul shadow of 
an urn. There has never, 1 believe, 
been any regular numberof urn* found 

ot SO, in other* only one or iwo. May 
we not suppose that, during the fre- 
quent batiks which the Koniani muat 
have had with the Britiih, the Biiti»h 
burned their alain after the Itoinan 
cuilom. and put their bones in these 
rude urns, placing them in the tumuli 
which had already been roriiied t

which is a plainly carrml Gothic arch ; 
liere is no piscina a<ijoining, which 
frcqaently is che case. A specimen hsT- 
ing the three stalls and piscina may be 
seen at Cockayne Hatley, in this county. 
At the fool of the steps leadinc from 
the altar, are several slabs of blue 
stone, which have contained plates with 
inscriptions and other devices, bat most 
of them bemg mutilated there are no 
inscriptions now hepble. 
' In the centre of the chancel, but at 
some dSttance from the altar, is an im- 
mense blue slab^ beins 1 1 feet 6 inches 
long, and 5 feet 6 incncs wide, which 
obvers the remains of the John Rodyng 
before mentioned, and which has the 
following imperfect inscription. Those 
ivrts which are included in hrackeis 
are now torn oft', and are supplied from 
Browne Willis, who supposes Uiat this 
monument was placed here in the life* 
tioDcof Rudyng, before he obtained his 
other preferments. On a scroll in black 
letter, is the following couplet : 

<« Qustnor O SMieti me Bedford ArchilevI- 

tam [vettrnm." 

John Radyag Omnium pvscilms defendice 

Round the verge of the slab :

Talis erat qualem detcripsi plus liberalem."} 

There were fire other lines origi- 
nally, but these were torn oflf when 
Browne WUlis saw the monument. 
Near the top of the stone was a large 
bcass plate, equal in its dimensions to 
one at the bottom. At the man*s side 
the figure of Death still remains. The 
brass at the bptioin is inscribed with 
the following curious dialogue, inclosed 
in lines aliernatety raised and sunk: 
" Tu fcra Mt»rt quid agts humane prodiga 

•t»g*»«» [tendit, 

Cedo qjiot offeodii quod in hnne discrimina 
Die cur tela struis, naturae depopulatrix.

Mors ego sum finis lustrantibiu hie pere- 
Termiaus itineris quern nee preterire mereris. 
In icriptis legitur, Caro qnevis morte po- 

Bt vox applaudit vulgo, mors omnia claudit." 

Nearly opposite to the pulpit, in the 
middle of the nave, is a stone, with 
brasses inlaid, of one William Halsted, 
originally having a wife on each side 
of him : the husband is decollated. 
One of the wives is inhumanly torn 
from his side, and the other being on 
the right of him, has Zlitia on her 
right shoulder, and the following in- 
scription at their feet: 

•' Hie jaeent Will'ms Halsted, qui obiit 
XXX die Januarii, Anno D*ni MCCCCXUX«. 

£l Isabella ac Alicia uxoret ei*de 

...... quor' a'i'ab* p'pciet* de, Am'e." 

Very near to the last, is another thus 
inscribed : 

** Exuviae Reverendi Georgii Gibson, 
quadraginta sex annis hujtts ParochiseTicarii, 
bie rant sepultae. Sancti Eirangelii pastor 
veros et fidelia fiiit, sacro muoere fungendo

evocavit, vicessimo nono die Julii, letatis 
anno septuagesiirao sexto. Anno Domini 
millessimo septiagentesfimo sexto. Ri- 
cardus Rudd scripsit.*' 

Another has: 

*« Hie laoet Owinus Bromsall, Armig.,

Bedf. qui oUit die Octob. 1663, et 

Blandina uxor et filia Biandina, e dextri 
parte Jacentes. Anno eeutia fere 58." 

In the south aile is a handsome 
marble monument, inclosed with iron 
rails (which have been permitted to 
fall into a most disgraceful condition), 
to the memory of Sir Thomas Brom- 
sall,, who was sealed at Stratton in this 
parish, which is thus inscribed : 

«< Depositum Tbomae Bromsall, Milltis :

b well aeconnted for by Dr. Whiuker, 
in hit History of Richmoodthire, p. 
996, Tol. ii.» who obterTet, 

" One of the iDlaiictioDf given by the 
Couoeil of Edwsrd Vl. to the CommiMionert 
MDt about tha Idngdooiy for tha piurpote of 
ftforoMtioOy WM thit— •-' That all ringing 
with hdj balls (and befora tha Reformation, 
all church ballty tave one, were baptived or 
. eonteerated) to drive awaj derilsy and all 
ringing or kaowling of balls, mm one, should 
be utcerlj forborne. This prompted the 
avarice of chnrchwardanst or parishes at 
large, to dispose of all their bells, save one, 
(vhich, for the same reason, was sure to be 
the least) as useless and superstitious.' But 
the fondness for the chcerfol sound of a peal 
of bells graduallj returnbg upon the people, 
the ancient complement was restored." 

At ihis period, or under EliEtbeth, 
therefore, I date the destruction of all 
the Saiut*s Bells in the kingdom of the 
brger kind— that is, such as were not 
hand bells. 

I have hinted at one bell often found 
in our ecclesiastical structures, and 
; which was not consecrated. This bell, 
I have reason to think, never hung 
among the peal in the tower, but in a 
lone recess like the Saint*s Bell, and 
had no such inscription around it as 
others had. It was the bell used upon 
all secular occasions ; was the alarm- 
bell in cases of fire, or approach, per- 
ad venture, of an invading enemy. 
From Stnw's Annals, p. 286, and 
other works, it seems there was such a 
bell in London, before Henry in.*s 
reign, and I am well assured that such 
a bell was very common throughout 
the kingdom. The large bell in Tong 
Church, heretofore mentioned, was, 
perhaps, more likely to have been this 
bell than the passing bell. The latter 
had commonly "ora pro nobis," in- 
scribed upon It. Were this without 
inscription, I should certainly pro- 
,nounce it the secular bell, used upon 
Tarions occasions of festivity, or rather 
parish business.

*^* As it can be no novelty to the Eoclo- 
siastioal Antiquary to be informed that the 
small turrets frequently attached to chorehea, 
contain stairs, and that the stairs to the 
rood loft frequently remain, wa must de- 
cline inserting our oorrespondent's letter on 
that sub|ect.— Edit. 

Mr. Urbaw, July 23. 

AS your Magazine contains much 
information respecting York Ca- 
'••dral^ and abounds with judicious 

advice and admonition on various sub- 
jects of *' architectpral innovation,** I 
hope you. will give publicity to the fol- 
lowing appeal to the subtchlferi for re- 
huilding the Choir of that Church. Itsla- 
menuble conflagration excited a strong 
sympathy, and very painful emotions 
in every admirer of that sacred, splen- 
did, and truly national edifice. It was 
.one of the most memorable events in 
the modern history of our Cathedrals; 
for, although these noble piles were 
frequently destroyed, or greatly injured 
by fire; bjr the wanton batterv and 
varied spoliation of the Pagan Danes, 
and by other ruth lest warriors, in for- 
mer times, they have suffered little, 
but from neglect and misdirected im- 
provements, since that horrid epoch of 
civil warfare during the Cromweliian 
era. Some of our modem innovators, 
the officious and tasteless improvers on 
genuine Christian architecture, have 
certainly inflicted severe injury on too 
many of our sacred piles: but it is 
generally believed that better feeling^, 
and better taste now prevail— ^that even 
those who neither know much of, or 
care much about the real beauty and 
true spirit of ecclesiastical architecture, 
pay some deference to public opinion, 
and are more influenced by dread 
of censure, than solicitous to deserve 
praise. I am induced to make these 
remarks, in consequence of hearing 
that, amonfc the projected alterations 
in York Cathedral, it is proposed to 
take down and remove th»organ ecreen. 
The bare mention of such a deed-r 
such a misdeed — is almost enough to 
call up the ghost of the late John Car- 
ter. Were he living, he would buckle 
on hit armour and poise his lance in 
defence of that most beautiful, most 
interettinff, most sumptuous piece of ar- 
chitectural design anci sculptural adorn- 
menu. He, like a Knight Templar of 
old, would desert his home, his do- 
mestic health, and all its comforts to 
guard the sacred temple of his adora- 
tion and devotion. He would watch 
it by day, as well as night, and at^a^Jk 
any Saracen, Turk, or Gofh, (hat dared 
to violate its holy shrine. Alas ! " the 
days of chivalry *' are fled — fanaticism 
prevails, and one of its high priests has 
fired the Cathedral now alUided to. 
He is pronounced mad by a jury, and 
sentenced to linger and rant in a vul- 
gar crypt. Other fanatics, however, 
still roam at large, to the annoyance 
of good sense and good tast^. Some of 
these, for nothing less than fanaticism.

of Spalding School was conferred upon 
him by his College. And when we cou- 
tider his extreme youth, the commis- 
sion of so important a trust implies a 
high opinion both of his scholarship 
and steadiness. In this situation Bent- 
ley continued only a year, insomuch 
that during his lifetime it was very lit- 
tle known that our great Aristarchus 
had ever filled such a post. Had the 
junto of wits who combined their ef- 
forts to bring down this Goliath, got a 
knowledge of this circumstance, they 
would have been but too happy to have 
added '* pedagogue " to their constant 
appellation of " pedant." The want 
of a house of residence at Spalding, 
however, soon induced Bentley to re- 
sign the school for a situation as private 
tutor to the son of Dean Stilliiigileet. 
He was too, we suspect, much influenc- 
ed by that long-tight which minds of 
such a calibre as Beniley's usually pos- 
sess, and which was so remarkable in 
One who bore no small resemblance to 
Bentley, Dr, S. Parr, He, no doubt, 
saw that such a post would consign 
him to uerpctual and hopeless obscu- 
riiv; whereas the situation with Dean 
Stillingfleet gave him some chance of 
making his merits known, and advanc- 
ing himself in life. Had he continued 
at Spalding, he would probably have 
been a Richard Johnson rather than a 
Richard Bcnlley ; and some grammati- 
cal commentaries, or splenetic efibsions 
of hypercriticism against his more for- 
tunate compeers, would have probably 
been all that he would have produced. 
In truth, the very crisis of his fate for 
life turned on the pivot of his accep- 
tance or rejection ofthis situation with 
the Dean, where he enjoyed the use of 
one of the best private libraries in the 
world, with the improvement which 
was sure to be derived from the society 
of one of the most learned men in Eu- 
ro|)e. Bentley took his M.A. degree at 
the usual time, and then, for some years, 
his connection with the University ter- 
minated ; the Dean in whose family he 
lived residing principally in London. 
During thin |)eriod, he prosecuted his 
studies with every advantage, and no 
doubt laid up much of those treasures 
of knowledge from which, in after 
times, he so readily drew forth, like the 
prudent householder in the parable, 
** things new and old." At this time, 
too, though his chief attention was de- 
voted to Classics, yet he bestowed a 
coosiderable share of study on Theo- 
hgy andTthe Criticism of the New Tes- 

tament, and in order thereto applied 
himself closely to the Oriental laa- 
guages, and formed for his own use a 
sort of Hexapla, out of the varioot 
interpretations of Hebrew words ia 
the ancient versions, and also wrote a 
quarto volume of various readings and 
emendations on the Hebrew text, de- 
rived from those versions, which (as 
we think) in the immaturity of his 
judgment, Bentley then appreciated 
too nighly ; being, we suspect, an An- 
tiponciuist, and therefore no very 
sound Hebraist. The advances Bentley 
had made at that early age are the more 
remarkable, when we consider that he 
enjoyed none of those aids which are 
now so well adapted to smooth the path 
of the Classical and Biblical student. 
Grammatical learning was then very 
imperfectly known, and there was 
moreover a great want of good lexicons 
and indexes, which supply such valoa- 
ble assistance to the scholars of the pre- 
sent day. But Bentley, in reliance on 
his own exertions, and drawing from 
his own resources, struck out an origi« 
nal path in criticism, in which his own 
consummate sagacity and subiilty of 
genius enabled him to obtain unrivalled 

In order to effect the important pur- 
poses in view, he did not rely on his 
memory (which, unlike the case of his 
predecessors Scaliger and Salmasius, 
and his successors Porson and Parr, was 
not extraordinary), but on the habit 
which he practised through life, of not- 
ing down (usually in the margin of his 
books) the thoughts which suggested 
themselves to his mind. Nay, he even 
formed for his own use indexes of va- 
rious authors; a course, by the way, 
which was diligently followed by the 
mighty critics and philologists of the 
Dutch school. Bentley did not (from 
the unsettled state of the^Church in the 
reign of James II.) enter into holy or- 
ders till some years after the usual age. 
But, upon his patron Dean Stillinff- 
fleet being promoted to the Bishoprick 
of Worcester, he took Deacon's oraere, 
March l6th, 1689-gO, from the Bishop 
of London, and was appointed Chap- 
lain to his Patron. He a little before 
had accompanied his pupil James Stil- 
lingfleet, to a residence in Wadham 
College, Oxford, as his private tutor, 
and was incorporated M.A. of that 
University. Here he resided some time 
under very favourable circdmstances ; 
his connection with the Bishop of 
Worcester having introdaced him to 

Bbhop Monk'n Life of Soitby.

aonpiiont, and rtquirio^ in tb« Editor 
ftaefi different qnalifttationi, ai fonn a 
proof of the fertility of his learning and 
the enerytyof hit mind. He never actually 
brought out any one of these writers, 
JeaTina Philosiratos to Olearius, and 
Hesychius to Alberti ; but his appara- 
tus of critical remarks on the two last 
were very valuable to the above editors 
aome years afterwards. Bentley was 
now (lGg2) appointed Boyle's Lecturer, 
and the subject of the discourses was a 
Confutation of Atheism, in opposition 
to Spinoza and Hobbes, whose perni* 
cious principles, thouah they had been 
ably combated b^Cudworth and Cum- 
berland, yet required to be assailed in 
tome more popular and effective man- 

*' Tht reader of these dwcoorsei," laya 
Dr. Monk, <• is isformed aad ddlghtvd by 
the variety of knowledge which tbe^ ooolaio»

pkyt a familiarity with metaphytics, natural 
nisuiry, and philosophy, altogether wonder* 
Inl in a person coming ficesh from the field of 
' oriticlsm." 

In the course of this work BentW 
availed himself of the aid of Newton^ 
immortal discoveries in philosophy, 
Jind indeed was the first to make tnem 
known to the world. To do this the 
more successfully, he corresponded 
much with Newton himself, and was 
aided by many valuable suggestions 
from him, so that, as our Biographer says^ 

**Thb department of natural Theology 
bas never yet been so satisfactorily illut- 
tmted. The stvie is rsmarkeble* not only 
fcr Its vigour, but for a certain epigrimma«

' Before the year was over, Bentley 
Iras presented to a Prebend in Worces- 
ter Cathedral, and his residence fixed 
for the months when the Bishop was 
t\ Worcester. The repnution aodpro-

with his strtogth, and which may 
«hiefly, perhaps, be attributed id hn 
being in a great measure ttN^taugki. 
This year Bentley com meneed a corres- 
pondence wiih the celebrated J. J. 
i^rsevius of Utrecht, the most distin* 
guished scholar of his time; which 
continued until the death nf'Grsvius. 
All their letters are preserved, and are 
highly interesting, on various accounts. 
Graevius had now in hand an edition 
of Callimachus, to which Spanheim 
furnished an ample Commentary, and 
Bentley a full collection of the frag^ 
ments dispersed in various authors^ 
more than doubling those of former 
editors, and evincing a learning and 
critical acumen equalto that of almost 
any of his productions. In iCQi-^, 
Bentley was appointed Keeper of Ihe 
King's Library, at a salary of 2001, a 
year, then a considerable sum» InlGgi, 
he was summoned to preach his second 
course of Boyle*s Lectures. His subject 
was the defence of Christianity against 
the objections of infidels. These werk 
unfortunately never given to the world, 
and in whose possession the MS. now 
is. Dr. Monk has never been able to 
discover. Amidst these engagement I 
and this rising fame, Bentley became in- 
Tolved in that dispute which forms a 
prominent feature in hit life, the Cbn- 
iraveny on the Episties of Phalaris. 
The origin and progress ol this is de*- 
tailed with gi^ai perspicuity and abi* 
h'tv by our Biographer. We knonv not 
whether we shall make it fully under- 
stood to the reader in the following 
slialit sketch. 

This dispute had its Origin in the 
controversy concerning the respective 
merits of the Ancientsand the Modems, 
in which Fontenelle and Perrank stre- 
nuously, but incauiioutly, maintained 
the superiority of the Moderns ; while 
Sir W.^ Temple as stiffly maintained 
the claims of the Antients: running 
into the opposite extreme, by claiming 
for them a superiority In every depart* 
ment, not only in aenius and taste, but 
In philosophy and science. His ren^ 
soning is, however, inconclusive, his 
views shallow, his credulity ridiculoos, 
his manner too dogmatical ; and his 
whole work savours more of a College 
declamation than a calAn enquiry. 
However, it was mubh read and ap* 
ofauded, even by Boilean and Racine ; 
out the imperfections of the disquisi- 
tion became apparent to unprejudiced 
and cool thinkers. Tliis induoed Woi-

This, as the work was already pub-

indeed oihi-r modes of retiaciaiion, but 
Boyle coldly rrjccled all tncificover'

was alike nnjuatiriablc. Beuitcy was

Your correspondent R. S. Y. in the 
Number for April, p. 2Q2, desired to 
know in what estimation Damm*8 
Lexicon was held bv scholars. I can 
only say to this worthy TiTtJsTATius 
(Cic. adHer.'iv, \2), that I frequently 
use the work myself, and always derive 
much information from it. Those 
who do not possess a copy of Eusta- 
THius's Commenlariet on Horner^ will 
find the substance of his explanations 
in Damm*8 work. My worthy friend^ 
the Rev. H. Hunting ford, B. D. 
has published an edition of Pindar^ 
with Damm*8 Pindaric Lexicon, sepa- 
rated from the Homeric; ** Lexicon 
Pindaricum ex integro Dammii Opere 
Etymologico excerplum, et justa Serie 
dispositoro, Editio altera,*' 1831, 8vo. 
The book was published for the use of 
Winchester school, and is dedicated to 
Dr. Gabell. He happily selected the 
following motto: ** uaumii Lexicon

Another invention is, that of verses 
that may' be read either forwards or 
backwards ; and in the laiier case, ge- 
nerally meaning quite the reverbc of 
the apparent sense, and including 
sarcasm or satire. This sort was some- 
times called Verse Lyon, and Sidonius 
is said to have invented it, or to have 
made frequent use of it. The follow- 
ing lines have hern frequently quoted 
ai specimens of the style, written in 
praite of Pope Clement VI. or Pius II. 
but of which, learned authorities are 
not quite agreed. It seems, the poet 
was afraid he might not obtain the re- 
ward that he deserved in his own esti- 
mation, and therefore retained the 
)iower of converting his flattery into 
abuse, by simply givmg his friends the 
cue, to read from the last word back-

Mr. Urbaf, Penzance, June, • 

IN the biography of Dr. Stieyd Da- 
vies, an<r in that of Mr. Phelpt, 
mntained ia the first volume of Mi- 
choU's "Illustrations of Literature," 
and written by the late Judge Hard- 
inge, I perceive an emendation of a 
passage in Horace (lib. iii. od. 29) 
jprhicn was proposed by Mr. Nicholas 
Hardinge, it I understand rightly, and 
approved by Markland, Bentley, Parr» 
and Taylor. It is spoken of as a dis- 
icovery of ^eat value (see *' Illustra- 
lioos of Literature,*' voL i. p. 728), 
«nd it is asserted, that the present read- 
ing, though it is that of all the editiont 
-and MSS. is perfect ridicule and folly. 
Certainly it would be presumptuous to 
^controvert the opinions of Markland 
and Bentley; hut may there not be 
'tome error in the account which u 
iven of their approbation ? and yet 
can hardly imagine that there ia any 
miatake relative to Bentley, as hiscom- 
aneiidaiion of ihe alteration is given 
with peculiar circumstances, r^ot- 
wilhatanding the above phalanx of 
)lMMn08, I am Induced to think that 
•rbatif the reading of all the editions 

tand maniiecripts may be the right one; 
and if Mr. Hardinge were livings he 
would not be so violently startled at 
my presumption, if he could be in- 
formed, that I propose to retain the 
old reading, and yet give the passage 
his interpretation. The interpreta- 
tions, not the text, appear to be 
wrong;, and having taken a wrong 
view of the meaning, as given in trans- 
lations, Mr. Hardinjge endeavoured to 
alter the text itself, in order to produce 
that meaning, which the passage^ even 
as it now sunda in all theedKions, will 
hear. The passage is as follows: ■ 

** Eripe te morse, 
Ne semper udum Tibur, et .^ratsr 
Deelive contempleris arvum, et 
Telegoni Juga parricidiB." 

Mr. Hardinge says, that the scenery 
which the Poet here describes as that 
which he exhorts Maecenas to con- 
template no more for a time, is the 
Tcry scene to which he invites him. 
How then would Maecenas cease to 
Contemplate the semper udum Tilur, 
ftc. by coming to it? and to rescue 
Horace from this seeming inconsist- 
ency, he proposes to read ul instead of 
fie. Now, Sir, if ui had been found 
as a various reading, I should not hesi- 
tate to adopt it ; but my idea is, that all 
the editions are right, and that ne ia 
the proper word, and that the error is 
in not civing the right meaning to ne, 
which nas here the sense of quid nu 
Horace does not exhort Maecenas to 
contemplate the scene no more, but he 
exhorts him to shake oflf that delay 
which detains him from contemplating. 
JVehas here (as I with deference think) 
the sense of quid ni or lest, I have 

fiven the roeanins paraphrastically ; 
ut it sorely has the same sense as in 
^the following passages: " In culpa es 
ne cemere possis." — Lucret. *' Eri- 
puit se ne causam diceret." — Cses. 
He rescued himself so as not to stand 
his trial. The implied and conjunctive 
meaning (if I may so express myselQ 
of the particle ne has reference to 
mord, and not to eripe- "In mor& 
es, ne contempleris; li&c mord te 
eripe." I offer this explanation with 
submission; but I must add that, if 
it should be approved, it will give me 
great pleasure to have hit upon a plan 
of reconciling all parlies, and to nave 
made the design of Horace's pencil 
more clear, by applying a brush instead 
of a new piece ot canvass.

Thus it was, that paternal Providence

the pressure of |)opu1ation upon sub- 
sistence, omislng exorbitant rent, the 
affections of the latter are alienated 
from their natural protectors, and trans- 
ferred to the priests; but kind and 
amiable as are the feelings of Mr. 
Bicheno towards that class of men, as 
to personal conduct, he has omitted to 
state that his arguments are useless in 
regard to Ireland, because no fact is 
better established than that beggary, 
rags, and indolence, arc characteristic 
ot every country where Catholicism is 
supreme. Spain, Portugal, and luly, 
are sufficient testimonies; and more 
than all, the diflference which prevails 
in this respect between the Protestant 
and Romish Cantons of Switzerland. 

Poor Laws, Mr. Bicheno thinks, 
would be ineffectual, because for the 
best of reasons they could not be paid 
as to any adequate amount, if assessed. 

<< The Dietary in the Irish House of /n- 
Aittry At Limerick {where no work it donej 
is — for breaf^fastp 8 oz. oatmeftl, And 1 pint 
of new milk — dinner, 4^ lb. of potatoes, 
boiled, and 1 pint of sour milk. The cost 
of dieting a pauper was stated to be Ijd. per 
diem." — Pv944. 

Now this is exactly 2/. per annum, 
which, taking the. number of paupers 
at six millions, would be twelve miU 
lions yearly, four millions more than 
the amount of Poor-rates in opulent 
England. Thus, under all the circum- 
$iances» there appears to be no efficient 
remedy but emigration ; any other can 
be only palliatives ; and repeal of the 
Union, and proposed independence, 
only aggravations, and measures wliich 
would produce war with England, and 
transportation, if successful, of the yet 
remaming capital, as well as civil war. 

As to the modern theories of Politi- 
cal Economists, our author justly says, 

** Tliat they are of insignificant impor- 
taace when applied practically to the actual 
eircumstances of a country. Theories are 
educed from tkfewhetB selected from a mul- 
titude, while practice proceeds upon the 
broad and expanded basis of aU fiscts : so 
that it generally happens, that the theoretio 
principles are inapplicable to the existing 
exigencies of society. When for instance it 
is roundly suted that Ireland sustains no 
blury from absentee expenditure, because 
whatever rent is remitted, is without doubt 
npresented in a great degree by the export 
of Irish commodities, and as far as expend!- 
tare is eoneemed, the chief difference seems 
to be b the plaee of ocmsumption. But stilly 

though the expenditure of an absentee land- 
lord must be represented by the commodities 
of the country from which he derives his re- 
mittances, still it may not represent an equi- 
valent in his own produce. A bill of 1000/. 
upon Paris may he for the manufactures cff 
Manchester, and not a single ox or quarter 
of wheat may be represented in it : yet it 
can hardly l>e denied that the country must 
be wronged, where the landed projirieturs 
overlook the interest of their own tenantry, 
and do not take care that the commodity 
which is exported, contributes to the em- 
ployment of their own people." — pp. 296-9t. 

Emigration, ihe only efficient reme- 
dy, is rendered difficult, by the heavy 
expence: but our author says, that 

'< The Isnd itself ought to bear the ex- 
pences of the transplantation ; and Ireland 
has now to make a temporary sacrifice of an 
amount suited to the urgency of the occa- 
sion."— p. 874. 

According to this opinion, a tax 
ought to be levied upon the landed 
proprietors of Ireland, to pay the cost 
of emigration.

THE moral sense, we apprehend, 
erows out of the association of ideas ; 
tor bow can a person distinguish be- 
tween a feeling of right and wrong 
without comparison. We are of opi- 
nion that intellectual physiology nei- 
ther is or can be understood, because 
if we know not the laws of vitality; we 
cannot determine in what manner it 
acts. We therefore think that all the 
eminent men alluded to by Mr. Wain- 
wright, in this elaborate and well- writ- 
ten disquisition, have undertaken to de- 
fine what is beyond their power, be- 
cause beyond the association of ideas, 
and its palpable effects. We think that 
there are no intellectual actions defina- 
ble, possibly because there are no other 
existent. We say existent, for it does 
not appear to us, that there is in mind 
a single uncombined idea, and if it 
does not so exist, it cannot have an in- 
dependent being or origin. If so, the 
matters of dispute in this treatise torn 
upon the presumed existence of chil- 
dren which never had pareuts-— spun*

London it has been thought desirable to

separately published in a style of uniformity 
with the Monasticon, by one of the Editors 
of that Work; so that to have reprinted 
them here, when nearly the whole of the 
same persons were subscribing for both 
Works, would have been materially en- 
hancing the extent and cost of the Monasti- 
eon, without increasing its value to the 

" It was at first intended, too, that a 
Life of Dugdale should be prefixed to the 
First Volume of the Monasticon ; but Dug- 
dale's own Account of his Life having been 
prefixed to the Reprint of St. Paul's, and a 
separate Volume naving since appeared in 
the ' Life, Diary, and Correspondence of 
Sir WillUm Dugdale,; edited by WUliam 
Hamper, Esq. superseding further research, 
the intention was given up: nothing new 
could have been discovered of his Life, and 
the expense of the Work, already thought 
too great by the Subscribers, must have 
been enhanced.** 

** The Index has been compiled by Mr. 
Richard Taylor, author of the Index Mo- 
nasticus to the Diocese of Norwich." 

Not to mention the immense mass 
of new matter introduced into the 
work, in the proportion probably of 
three to eight, as compared with the 
old edition, the great advantage of the 
present edition over the former one, 
consists in the English descriptions of 
the religious foundations, and the ab- 
stracts of their registers, both omitted 
by Dugdale. The work has thus been 
rendered, by the unsparing research of 
Ht Editors, equally useful to the Gene- 
ral Reader, the Antiquary, and the 

From the passages which we have al- 
ready extracted, tne reader mav judge 
of the immense labour bestowed on the 
work by Mr. Ellis, assisted, as he doubt- 
less has been, bv the constant advice of 
Mr. Caley. We have thus preferred 
adopting the words of the learned Edi- 
tors to inserting any remarks of our own. 
We however congratulate them on the 
completion of their arduous task ; as we 
do the public, on the possession of an 
edition of the " Monasticon,*' which 
comprises all that is iraluable, not only 

in the original work by Dugdale, bnt 
in the Continuation by Steevens, and 
embraces a very large accession of ma- 
terials from Leiger Books, Rolls, and 
other documents brought to light since 
Dugda1e*s time, thus giving a complete 
History of all our Monastic Founda- 
tions. This important work will pro- 
bably never be superseded, but will 
form a necessary portion of every im- 
portant Library m England. 

It was at first intended to have 
copied all the Embellishments in the 
original edition ; and in pursuance of 
this, the chief of the prints hj Hollar 
have been re-engraved. But the plates 
by King, &c. beino; utterly worthless, 
this intention was happily abandoned ; 
and the embellishments of the new 
edition have been chiefly confided to 
Mr. John Coney, '* an artist,** as the 
editors justly observe, " whose execu- 
tion possesses the freedom and deli- 
cacy of Piranesi, without his occasional 
obscurity and coarseness.*' 

These plates have been admirably 
etched by Mr. Coney, from his own 
drawings made exclusively for this 
work, and we believe they form the 
largest collection of Gothic architecture 
ever published.* 

A rich series of Seals of the Bene- 
dictine Monasteries has been engraved 
by Mr. Coney, from the treasures un<« 
der the care, and in the collection, of Mr. 
Caley. But we cannot speak equally in 
commendation of Mr. Coney's labours 
with respect to the Seals. The style 
in which they are etched is much too 
rough and undefined. They fall far 
short of the engravings of Seals by 
Messrs. Blore and Le Keux, in Sur- 
tees*s " History of Durham," which 
are perfect in their kind, and admirably 
represent those beautiful specimens of 
antient art.

Thau^hU and Suggettiatu on the present 
Condition of the Country, By T. Potter 
Macqueen, Esq, M,P, Svo, pp, 50. 

Mr. M ACQUEEN, as chairman of 
a Parliamentary Committee, formed 
to investigate an imporuint branch of 
the Poor Laws, and as magistrate of 
an agricultural county, sufTermg under 
severe distress, has availed himself of 
facts which have fallen under his 
knowledge. The pamphlet is accord- 
ingly so much to the purpose, so vera- 
cious and incontrovertible, that we 
should deem it a public injury not to 
exhibit at length iu chief contents. 
Mr. M. staru with three indubitable 
postulates; (i) that population has 
enormously increased ; (ii) that it is so 
rapidly increasing, as to Ttndttfull em- 
ployment utterly impossible, unless 
new sources be developed; (iii) that 
present remunerative employment is 
fast diminishing. — p. Q. 

The superabundant population he 
attributes to bastardy, overseers' mar- 
riages, marriages to obtain more paro- 
chial relief, and imprudent love-mar- 
liages, small- pox and vaccine inocula* 

^ This superabundant population has 
introduced competition, and been ac- 
coinpanied with a diminishtd value of 

produce, so that there is not now paid 
a remoDenitive rate of wages, but only 
a mtnimom support of existence. Mr. 
M. illustrates the position thus. Farm- 
ers about the year 1790, through the 
increased value of land, and ntgber 
prices of provisions, became proud, 
disdained the society of servants in 
their houses, aini compelled them, for 
the comforts of a home, to marry pre- 

"Tlie unavoidable consequent hicrease of 
parochial assistance to married laboorers 
enabled the fiinner to employ these persons 
at a lower rate, and partly at the expense of 
thoee who cultivated small farms, the trades- 
man, the shopkeeper, and the private houses 
keeper ; for tne last-mentioned parties being 
amerced to poor's rate, and ihefamUy of th« 
labourer rather maintained from such rate, 
than from fair wages, all was in fisvonr of the 
large occupier; and the valuable race of 
small yeomen became gradually extinguish- 
ed. Thus, in the years of prominent agri- 
cultural prosperity from 1800 to 1815, al- 
though rates were enormously high, stifl 
the price of corn was comparatively higher. 
The labourer was underpaid in his reffular 
work; and the superfluous charges o? fir- 
mily, illness, accident, funerals, &e. defray- 
•d by a parish fund, to which many othevs, 
as well as the great farmers, were liable. 
To illustrate this position, I will assume 
that the value of one fifth of a quarter of 
wheat, or lOi pints, be the fair equivalent 
of weekly wages for an agrionltural labourer. 
Then, in 1749, the average price of wheat 
beioc 29s. 6d, per quarter, at this estimate 
the fair rate of weekly wages shoutd be six 
shillinp. Now we find that she shillings 
toere the average wages for that year ; con- 
sequently the relative proportion was kept 
up, and the poor's rate next to nothing. In 
the year 1790, the price of wheat was bSs. 
per quarter ; but the average rate of wageSf 
instead of being, to preserve the proportion^ 
lOs. 6d, per week, were only Bs. Leaving a 
deiicienoy of 9jt. 6d, or one-fourth. In 
1801 wheat being \lSs. Ad. wages ought 
to have reached 23s, whereas they only ave- 
raged 10«.; and In 1813, with wheat at 
I22s, 6d, wages, which ought to have been 
24s, 6d., were only lis.; but, in IB26, 
wheat being only 67s. 1 Icf. wages were 9t." 
— pp. 10 — 11. 

Hence .\ir. Macqueen proceeds to 
show that crime necessarily grows out 
of the incompetent wa^es of honest 
labourers, which are far inferior to the 
allowance of culprits and criminals, 
who are so handsomely supported, 
clothed, and encouraged,

Thus hy the most palpable cruelty

person palmed off with Id. a day, while 
a rascal is comforted with twenty times 
the amount. One half of the public 
Aoiiey expended upon. Howardian 
gaols in the county of Gloucester alone, 
would have thrown bridges over the 
Severn at Newnham and Tewkesbury, 
have cut most beneficial roads, and 
enriched the country. They who best 
know how to manage rascals are the 
officers in the Navy ; and the best way 
of treating them is to make them use- 
ful drud^, and keep them in order by 
ffverf ducipHne. A barn of a work- 
house is deemed sufficient for old, de- 
crepid, virtuous labourers; but a pa- 
lace is to be erected for worthless 
aeoundrels. Philosophers know that 
the only way to effect permanent re- 
form is suffering. Salt and potatoes, 
spring water, hard work, and a cat-o**- 
oine tails, and (to prevent euape) 
bulks for prisons, would ai a cheap 
rate deter from crime; and a few 
barns would do for women and chil- 
dren. . What is the cause of all this 
expensive foil jf f Nothing but unphi- 
losophicalreligionism, which is always 
promising golden ages, i. e. races of 
men witliuut vice or misery, by me- 
thods which remove suffering from 
the former, and leave the latter for the 

Mr. Macqueen then makes an ela- 
borate estimate of the respective advan- 
tages of each of our colonies for con- 
victs and emigrants. He conceives 
that our criminals ought to be sent to 
the worst places, as Bermuda, the 
Cape or Trinidad, and even the West 
Inoies ; and if complaint is made that 
it is virtually sending them to destroc* 
tion, Mr. Macqueen observes, that our 
gallant soldiers and sailors are obliged 
to go there, as well as thousands of 
inoffensive young people seeking a 
maintenance. Of all the colonies Mr. 
M. prefers Australia, aud he wishes to 
relieve it, as far as possible, from the 
impQtation of being a convict colony, 
ana seems to hint a desire that it should 
be made a place of punishment only 

for those who have been driven to evil 
courses by sheer want and destitution, 
—pp. 3«, 33. 

Besides the known products of the 
colony, he sutes that the olive tree 
here produces superior oil ; that hemp 
and flax may be grown sufficient to 
render us independent of foreign coun- 
tries. Tobacco thrives well ; and wine 
will shortly become a staple article of 

Mr. M. concludes with the subject 
of emigration ; which he shows to be 
absolutely necessary, in the manner 
following : 

'<We may say, for the sake of round 
numbers, that every UDempl<^ed fiunily, 
cooiisting of a man and his wire and four 
children, is a dead weight upon the country 
of 40/. per annum ; in other words, consum- 
ing annually 40/. which would otherwise be 
beneficially employed. If then you place 
this &mily in a condition where they can 
consume and pey for SO/, worth a-year of 
home manufacture, you are actually increas- 
ing the national wealth in a ratio of 60/. for 
every family to provided."— p. 85. 

This statement, and the circum- 
stance of thus augmenting the nursery 
for seamen, is a sufficient reply to the 
objections against emigration. 

We shall conclude with Mr. Mac- 
queen's summing up; 

" The principal difficulty to surmount is 
the number of able-bodied paupers wholly 
destitute of remunerative labour. A fudi- 
cious attention to emigration would, how- 
ever, soon obviate this evil i and when a 
&ir balance be once struck between home 
demand and employment, then there can be 
no objection to provide agMost a recurrence 
of foture and similar danger ; thus the com • 
mon argument will be removed, that as fast 
as one swarm of population be thrown off, 
another will be produced. As to the plau 
of cultivating watte lands in £nelaad| afier 
the most carefol consideration I am con- 
vinced of the otter fallacy of such doctrine. 
One of the most prominent causes <^ the

Mr, Cunningham ishereon his own

he brings to hi* work an enlhutiajtic 
love of air, a fine feeling for its capaci.

nicest beaulies, and a taste forined upon 
ihc purest and most classic motels.

at once accurate, elegant, and discrimi-

is uticred by Mr.Cunniiigbam when- 
ever an oppoiiuniiy ofTeri; lo which, 
ihnugh we readily yield an assent, we 
are not nuite sure if it proceeds wiilr

by which the reputation of the artist is 
secured, yet there it scarcely a sculptor 
of name who is not transmitting to 
posterity the busu of men ofereai and 
•mall and no account, in duplicate and 
triplicate, to the bustle of nis studio, 
and the great ad%'antage of his purse. 
We hope we shall not be understood 
as deeming it of little importance in 
what branch of his art the sculptor is 
employed ; but the public will take 
the liberty of deciding for itself, and no 
one can tell better than Mr. Cunning- 
ham, how much (in the present state of 
society) beyond the reach of the most 
princely fortunes would be the encou- 
ragement of sculpture to the extent of 
wnich many of its professors are quali- 
fied to conduct its exertions. 

The lires in this volume are nine : 
tkey include Gibbons, Gibber, Roubi- 
liac, Wilton, Banks, Nollekens, Ba- 
con, Mrs. Damer, and Flaxman. The 
work is a history of sculpture from al- 
most the close of the seventeenth cen- 
tury to the present day. For so much 
of the biography as relates to the do- 
mestic lives of the artists, the author is 
indebte'd to the labours of their respec« 
live historians, collected with diligence 
aiid compiled with care. His opinions 
of their labours are the result of his own 
observation; he criticises freely, but 
with much candour and impartiality. * 

Of Gibbons but little is known ; and 
for that little we are indebted to Eve* 
lyn and to Walpole. Amongst his 
most celebrated works are the altar- 
piece of Trinity College, Oxford, and 
tiis carvings at Chatsworih. His style 
b well characterised by Mr. Cun- 
ningham : 

'* In the grace and elegance of his work- 
manthip he excelled all artbu who preceded, 
M well as those who have followed him ; ne- 
vertheless in felicity of grouping and vivid 
richness and propriety of application, he 
was far surpaswd by those intrepid artists 
who embellished our old Abbeys and Cathe* 
dralt. In comparing his works with thoae 
gotbic carvings, the remark of Gilpin is 
confirmed, that * Gibbons was no adept at 
composition,' but in execution he has no ri- 
val. There vas an impediment in his way, I 
apprehend, which some men of taste will be 
relucUnt to admit; the Grecian architec- 
tare .which he was called upon to enrich, re- 
fuses to wear with grace a profusion ml gar- 
bads, whereas the grovelike sUteliness and 
hannonious variety of the Gothic carry firuit 
md flowers as naturally as trees bear leaf and 
falooai.*'*p. IS. 

. The next Sculptor commemorated in 

this volume is Caius Gabriel Cibber^ 
the father of the celebrated dramatic 
writer ; his reputation as a Sculptor is 
built upon the celebrated figures of 
Madness and Melancholy, which once 
appropriately distinguished the entrance 
of Bedlam, and which are now pre- 
served in the new establishment in Su 
George's Fields. Of these statues Mr. 
C. says, with much feeling, (p. 27,) 

** I remember some eighteen or twenty 
years aco, when an utter stranger in Lon- 
don, I round myself, after much wandering, 
in the presence of those statues, (hen occu- 
pying the entrance to Moorfirlds. Sculpture 
was then to me at that time an art unknown^ 
and it had to force its excellence upon my 
mind without the advantage of any prepaim- 
tion, either through drawings or descrip^ 
tions. But I perceived the meaning of those 
statues at once, felt the pathetic truth of 
the delineation, and congratulated myself on 
having discovered a new source of enjoy* 
ment. The impression which they made 
upon me induced me to expect too much 
from the rest of our sculpture. In St. Paul's 
and Westminster Abbey, I found much 
finer work, but less fervonr of poetic senti- 
ment, than what Cibber had stamped on 
those rough stones, which he b said to Iwve 
eut at once from the block without the aid 
of models." 

Cibber is designated as tt]e '* fore* 
runner of whatever is poetic in the 
sculpture of Great Britain." 

The third in order of time is Roubi- 
liac. Of his life but little is known ; 
but of his works, as they were nume- 
rous, so are they highly extolled by his 
biographer. *' He was a reformer," 
says Mr. Cunningham, " who gave 
powerful assistance in abolishing the 
literal fidelity of Sculpture/ and esta- 
blishing in its stead the |)oelic perso- 
nations of sentiment and feeling." A 
well-written account of the style of 
Sculpture, as it obtained in churches 
soon after the Norman Conquest down 
to the century preceding Houbiliac, in- 
troduces very appropriately the merits 
of this reformation. 

Mr. Cunningham's remarks on the 
monument of John Duke of Argyle 
and Greenwich, give a very lively pic- 
rure of his style of criticism. 

Of the statue of Newton it is well said, 

" Newton is represented standing, hold- 
ing up a prism, and between his hand and 
the thought stamj^d upon his broW, there 
is a visible connexion and harmony; he 
exhibits a calm colossal vigour of intellect, 
such as we have reason to believe was the 
oharacttr. of the living man i touched too,

Towards the Hon Mrs. Darner, the 
author has been sufficiently gallant; 
yet not permiiting himself lo overstej) 
the triiih. Quoting the eulogium of 

. Horace Walpole, he adds, •' A colder 
-account must be rendered of her genius 
and her works by one who has never 
been cheered by her wit nor charmeil 
by hcc beauty." To be sure the fol- 
rowing estimate of her talents is cold 

<<ThoM works which vre know to have 
been actually carved by her own hand, are 
all rude in czocution ; there if no ease of 
hand, none of that practised nicety of stroke, 
that undulating rise and fiill of flesh which 
everyone feels to be necessary , and which no 

• one can ho]»e to reach without great know- 
ledge and practice." 
Of her head of Nelson, it is added, 
** It if an image of death rather than of 
the heroic ; there are marks enough of the 

•chisel, but any one can see the hand that 
held it was unskilful : the nouth— that place 
where ignorance stops and knowleitge Ui- 
vnphs, looks like a crevice in a rook, and 
the eyes have ' no speculation.' " 

The last in the volume, and the high- 
est in estimate, is Flaxman. On this 
life Mr. Cunningham has bestowed 
much care, and narrated it in a kin- 
dred spirit. With the following well 
.written remarks on the classical stvlc 
of Flaxman, we close our notice of this 
elegant volume, which we think will 
-do higher honour to Mr. Cunningham's 
name than any previous work which he 
has given to the world. 

" The classic compositions of Flaxman 
include his Homer, ^chylus, Hesiod,Ilattte, 
and the Shield of Achilles. It is wonderful, 
while he pencilled these> how much he lived 
in the past, and how little in the present. 
All things of this age— all shapes which he 
Ibnnd in nature — all feelings for existing 
loveliness were dismissed from his mind ; and 
obtaining the prayer of Homtfr to his muse, 
things past became present, and the days of 
tbe "Tale of Troy divine " came back with 
all their warriors. The Shield of AehiHes is 
one of the worthiest of all these works — the 
very way in which he made it was peculiar — 
he modelled it roughly 'm tUj, had it cast 
into plaster of Paru, and then finished it for 
the ulver moulder. It was in this way that 
he Blade his ehief works— no one could work 
SA-Miaitously in. plaster as himself s it car- 
lied a aoftneas and a beauty from his touch 
whiab it could derive from no other hand. 
t)f aba twelve wondrous scenes which adorn 
li there is not one wbich is not re- 

^ta with betiuty of its own. All tt moving 
and breathing — there is the gentleness of 
'paace, the tumult of war, and the oharm of 
wedded love."

THROUGH Natural Philosophy 
intellect has become a scientific power, 
in action assimilating deity, while 
man in a natural state is in character 
lowered into a cart or a wheielbarrow, a 
mere passive machine. Through sci- 
ence nisw limbs and organs are added 
to the species ; but it is waste of room 
and time to expatiate upon the bless- 
ing derived from Natural Philosophy. 

That indeed is a science of which 
'every man, who values his time, mo- 
'ney, or happiness, ought to have an ele- 
mentary Knowled^, were it oiily to 
"warn him against impostures and im- 
practicabilities, and show him how to 
surmount difficulties. To eireohite 
this knowledge, by means of diminish- 
ing the expense of acqoiriog it, may 
have also the effect of producing kh 
important change in the pablic mind. 
It may generate a taste for that which 
is really useful, and increases the hap- 
piness and well-being of the species^ 
Such a work as this, conducted by such 
men as the authors, is a national bene- 
fit ; for if a comihon bbok 6f ailthmetic 
has often been the means of tbakihg a 
capital mathematician, who can tell 
what may be the results of a scientific 
auxiliary, which is a far more powerful 
lever, biecause it confers more copious 
information, and carries a student 
much further on his road. 

The extracts which we shall give 
will refer to the uses which we have 
been in the habit of making of philo- 
sophy, namely, of opposins it to the 
trash which, under the ho1^ name of 
religion, menaces the ruin of the na- 
tional. character for common sense. It 
is not that we care for the opinion of 
A, B, or C, but when forming the 
nucleus of a party they bear upon civil 
or political good, and we are sure, 
from history, that nonsense never did 
produce any other than evil When 

Sublicationa of the latter character

ing the actions of the Almighty, ac-

The collection of the works of the Bv- 
xaatineHittoriant n publbhlng under tne 
antpioet of Mr. Niebohr, and other able 
philologitts. Geofgtos Syncelint, and Ni- 
cephorus C P., have recently appeared at 
Bonn. Synoellot hea been entruiced to the 
revision of M. Dindorf, whose worin have 
lesdered him Justly celebiated. In a short 

prefiwe, M. Dindoif states thu he has 

afalled himself of two manuscripts in the 
Pkris library. Hie one served as the basis 
of the first edition published at Parb in 
1669, by Father Goar; the other is men- 
tioned in Bredow's Parisian Letters. M. 
Dindorf calls Goar meeHoeri homo thetrinif 
artit erilicm J ae u U ai t nuUd, nugHgeuHA in* 
creHHU: but has nevertheless re-printed 
his Chronological Canoo, his Notes, and 
even his Index ! The republication of Syn- 
cellus must, however, be very serviceable at 
the present moment, fkcilitatinr as it doetf 
a knowledce of the dynasties of jSgypt. As 
for Nieephoms, that Arehbishop of Con* 
stantinople merely gave a ckronogrmpkia eom^ 
pentHariaf an abridgment, in which laets 
nave been intercalated posterior to his epodi: 


Some workmen digging out clay from 
a ditch in the neighbourhood of Kertch, a 
seaport and fortress of European Russia on 
the east coast of the Crimea,* discovered in 
the month of March, 1 8S9, three antique 
tombs, upon which were placed ten little 
statues in terra-cotta, with six vases of the 
same material (the form of one of which was 
most elegant) , and a quanti^ of small articles 
of flsother-of-pearl, ivory, and glass, belong- 
ing to the ornaments of a female. Some me- 
taUic articles, discovered in the same ditch, 
were so corroded by time, that they broke 
with the slightest effort. The statues, 
which are more or less bjured, all r ep r e se n t 
the figures of women. Six of them are 
draped, and possess no attribute by which to 
recogniie what divinities thev personify. 
The four others form a kind or group, re- 
presenting Venus and Love. The most re- 
markable of these pieces, and that which at 
the same time is tlie least injured, shews the 
goddess of Cvtherea, seated on a rock, par- 
tially covered by fine drapery. By the side 
of tlie goddess stands on the rock a Term, 
•ornionnted with the head of Serapis, with 
the modUa ;. andat the foot of the Term b 
the child of Venus, standing in a very 
graceful attitude. Below the rock are two 
Cupids, mounted, the one cm s dolphin, the 
other on a swan. Thb composition b in a 
sood style j and wants only the fore-arm of 
Venus, and the head of one of the Cupids. 

The. Museum of Antiquities at Kerteh 
has wiuo made another new acqnbitaon. M. 
PoumentsoflP, Captain (jessaouD of the Cos- 
sacks of the Black Sea, residing at Temruk, 
in the district of Tamane, has presented the

• Dr. Labus, of Milan, (says the Rome 
EneyekpediquO has Just pubushed a seriet 
of verv curious observations on some 
Latin inscriptions recently discovered at 
Venice, or in its neighbourhood, and parti- 
cularly on an antique altar which was found 
hst year In repairing the altar of the ancient 
chapel of the bajSistery of the basilic of 
Saint Mark. In rabing upon that occasion 
the vahmble table of oriental granite which 
forms what in Italy is still called, af^ the 
usage of the primitive church, the meiua, 
or sacred table, it was discovered that it 
rested on an antique altar, dedicated to the 
sun, as appears fnna the following inscrip- 
tion, engraved in very beautiful Roman cha-

Proceedingi in Parliament. 


prebended from, the demise of the Crown 
in the present eircumstances of the 
country. — The SoticUor-generiU con- 
tended that no paramount necessity ex- 
isted for the proposed Address, and which 
alune could justify its adoption. If 
unhappily the event alluded to should 
occur. Parliament would be ready, as 
in former times, to provide for it.*-The 
JtUmey - general thought no danger 
could accrue from a postponement of 
the question, which it would be more 
respectful to his Msjesty, and a safer 
course to pursoe, tlian to agitate it just 
cm the cTe of a dissolution of Parlia- 
ment.*— 5tr R, Peel said, it would be 
not a very auspicious commencement of 
a new reign for the House to oblige the 
Bling to do what he had declared he had 
no intention of doing. Many contin- 
ceocies might occur, too, which it might 
oe extremely difficult to provide for; 
and after exerting the utmost ingenuity 
in detising remedies, they might pro- 
•doee ten thousand times more danger 
than if the contingencies took place 
without them. The motion was sup- 
ported by Mr. BamJket, Mr. C fF. fTpfme, 
and Mr. Brev^iUim .*— and opposed by 
•Lord J)arlmgiem and Mr. Dogheriif, On 
a division the numbers were-^For the 
motion 93 ; against it SI 7. 

The House went into a Committee on 
the LibklLaw Amendment Bilu— Lerif 
'Merpeth made an amendment in one of 
;the clauses, leaving out the additional 
penalties for libels in newspapers. — The 
Aitemey-generai opposed the amend- 
ment.— The House divided— For the 
amendment 87; against it SI.— The 
oiher clauses were agreed to. 

House op Lords, Jufy 8, 
The House went into Committee on 
the Beer Bill, when the Duke of Rkhr 
mend's clause for preventing the con- 
sumption of beer in houses to be esta- 
blished under the new law, was rejected 
by a minority of 60 to 15. 

House of Commons, •Tk/y 9, 
The Beer and Cider Bill, tb« Exche- 
quer Bills Bill, and the Militia Pay Bill 
were read a third time and passed. 

On the Order of the Day being read 
for the ftiriber consideratinn of the Li- 
bel Law Bill, the jitiome§t*general 
moved, as an amendment, that tbe clause 
for raising the security on newspapers 
should be increased from 800/. to 400/. 
•'•^Lerd Normanbif was not disposed to 
increase the power of Attorney-generals, 
-and least of all the present one.— Mr. 
P, Thomeom was opposed to the amend- 
'senty af be thought the sum of 800/. 
whieb was tha present amount of seeu- 
r, wm§ ^ite MuMhkaU'^Lerd Hemkk 

thought the present law quite sufficient 
to punish any misconduct on the part of 
tbe press. — Mr. ff^artmrlon thought it 
unfair to new newspapers to impose 
greater penalties on them than on those 
already established.— Tbe House then 
divided, when there appeared— For the 
Jttemeif - generaVs Amendment, 68 ; 
against it, 47. — After some further dis- 
oussion, the Bill was read a third time, 
and passed. 

House of Lords, July IS. 
The Sale of Beer Bill was, on the 
motion of the JDuke tf fFemngten^ read 
a third time. — Several amendments were 
then proposed by tbe noble Duke, and 
agreed to. One was, that two house- 
holders should be security for the person 
taking out a licence. 

July 13. — On the motion of the Earl 
rf Shaftesbury t the Forgery Bill was read 
a third time, and passed. The Welsh 
Judicature Bill was read a second time. 

In the House of Commons, the same 
day, Mr. Brougham concluded a long 
and eloquent speech by moving a resp- 
lution to the effect that the House would, 
at the earliest practicable period, take 
into consideration tbe most effectual 
means of mitigating tbe condition of 
the Slave population, and finally, of abo- 
lishing slavery altogether} and that they 
would further take into consideration 
the state of the West India Colonies, 
with a view to amend the administration 
of Justice in the said colonies.— Z.ori/ 
Merpelk seconded the motion. After a 
long debate the House divided, when the 
numbers were ^ for tbe motion S7; 
against it 56. 

House op Lords, July SO. 
The Jbrnrd Chancellor moved their 
Lordships' concurrence in the Address 
to his Majesty, to remove Sir Jonah Bar- 
ririgton from the office of Judge of the 
Admiralty Court of Ireland, he having 
been proved guilty of malversation in 
the exercise of his Judicial functions. — 
Tbe inotiou unanimously agreed to. 

Juhf SI.— Tbe Administration of 
Justice Bill, the Libel Law Amend- 
ment Bill, and the East Rktfohd 
Disfranchisement Bill, were read a 
third time, and passed. 

July S3. His Mi^^ty prorogued Par- 
liament in person. He was attended by 
the Duke ol Wellington, tbe Earl Mar- 
shal, tbe Lord Chancellor, tbe Lord 
Chamberlain, and the other High Offi- 
cers of Sute. The Speaker of the House

Obituary. — His Majesty King George the Fourth, [July, 

At the end of 1781 the Prince lott the 
companionship of biB brother, the late 
Duke of York, who was then sent 
abroad in order to complete his militarr 
education. The close attachment which 
bad grown in childhood, continued, how- 
ever, unabated during every period of 
their joint lives. 

The tjstem which the King had 
adopted for the education of his son 
Wat highljr beneficial while it was in 
operation, and so far as sound scholar- 
•hip was concerned. Confining the 
Prince to bit studies with almost mo- 
nastic seclusion and severity, it caused 
his ready mind to accumulate an un- 
usual store of valuable knowledge. But 
no sooner did its operation cease, than 
it was found to produce effects which its 
royal author, and his noble and reverend 
agents, were the first to discern and de- 
plore. It had too long shut out the 
world from the view of the Prince, and, 
6y not graduating his advance towards 
the public scenes of life, rendered those 
scenes, when at last he was at liberty 
to survey them as be pleased, too novel 
and encbanting, too luxuriant and over- 
powering. His tutors and governors 
had scarcely loosened the rein, before 
they were required altogether to drop 
il; numbers of a perfectly opposite cha- 
racter were In waiting to celebrate his 
freedom, and administer to his gratifica- 
tion and delight. Among them were 
certain individuali, celebrated for the 
splendour of their talents and vices, and 
in their earliest intercourse with the 
prince, much more ready to corrupt his 
morals by the one, than to enlarge and 
elevate his mind by the other. 

Here we must look for the origin of 
those painful misunderstandings which 
took place between the Sovereign and 
the Heir Apparent. The early friends o^ 
the Prince were in avowed opposition to 
his M;0^*^y'* Government, and soon in- 
fused their hatred of Ministers and their 
jealousy of the King into the unsuspect- 
ing mind and susceptible heart of their 
i\ltisUiou% proteg^. On political grounds 
alone the King had reason to be in- 
censed at their influence over his son ; 
but when to this was added the moral 
injury they were inflicting on one whom 
the pious father wished above all things 
to train for Gud and bis country, it 
cannot surprise, that, wounded by their 
arts in bis royal, his paternal, and chris- 
tian feelings, he should have set his face 
MM a flint against the men, and treated 
with rigour the son who had made them 
bis companions and friends. 
' On the Prince attaining his majority, 
in 1783, he was appointed a Colonel in 
<^ army, the highest military rank bis 

father ever allowed him to hold. The 
ceremonial of bis intruduction into the 
House of Lords by bis uncle the Duke 
of Cumberland, and the Dukes of Rich- 
mond and Portland, will be seen in our 
vol, Liii. p. 976. At the same time a 
message from the King desired the 
Commons to provide for his Royal High- 
ness a suitable income, and a sum sufB- 
cient for the formation of an establish- 
ment appropriate to his station. For 
the latter purpose G0,000/. wu granted ; 
and for the former the annual sum of 
&0,000/., being only one-half of what 
bad been allowed to bis grandfather 
when money was of greater value. The 
narrowness of this provision was con- 
demned by one party as likely to lead 
to great inconvenience ; and applauded 
by another as showing a proper regard 
to the already intolerable burdens of the 
people. One portion of the Coalition 
ministry who were then in power, 
warmly argued for an allowance of 
100,000/. a year. The Prince himself 
interposed, and insisted that the settle- 
ment should be left solely to the discre- 
tion of the Sovereign. The Prince's ex- 
penditure, however, exceeded 64,000/. ; 
and the debts incurred by the altera- 
tions of Carlton House, and other ar- 
rangements, made his total annual out- 
lay in money and credit fully amount to 

His difficulties increased so fast, that 
three years after his settlement he ap- 
plied to the King for assistance. A 
schedule of the Prince's debts was, by 
the King's command, laid before him j 
but, whatever might be the nature of 
the document, some of the items were so 
inconsistent with the strict moral prin- 
ciples of George the Third, that the ne- 
gotiation ended in a positive refusal of 

A determination was then taken by 
the Prince to live on 10>000/. a year, 
and dedicate 40,000/. annually to the 
liquidation of bis debts until all were 
discharged, in this resolution, which 
some loudly applauded and others more 
strongly condemned, his Royal High- 
ness strictly persevered for nine months. 
But in the session of 1787 the King and 
his ministers were induced to give way 
to the presumed wishes of Parliament } 
and by the consequent negotiations, a 
promise was given to pay the debts, to 
make allowance for the works at Carl- 
ton House, and to add 10,000/. a year to 
the Prince's income; whilst on the other 
side there was a formal engagement to 
abstain from future involvements. 

We now arrive at the memorable dis- 
cussions which arose on the question of 
a regency. The king, whose first^at-

the ghrixms uncertaHaniy of the laWt (wat 
tbit the first employment off that now 
proTerbial expreaaiou ?) and a wish not 
to add to the burdens of the people." 

In July of the same year (1803), the 
Prince of Wales addressed a letter to bis 
Mijesty, requesting, in contemplation 
of the threatened invasion, a military 
command suitable to his rank. This 
the Kinif was pleased to refuse ; at the 
time time reminding his son, that, 
'* should the implacable enemy so far 
tueceed as to land, you will have an op- 

Eortunity of showing your leal at the 
ead of your regiment." The royal cor- 
respondence on this occasion the Prince 
(who is said to have been assisted in the 
composition of his letters by Mr. She- 
ridan and Dr. Parr,) thought proper to 
publish, and it will be found in our vol. 
LXXiii. pp. 1 17S, 1244. His Royal High- 
ness bad previously in 1796, when the 
Duke of York was commanding in the 
Netherlands, been refused permission to 
join the Duke, in company with his 
friend Lord Moira. 

On tbe 2d of May, 1810, the Uni- 
versity of Oxford conferred oji tbe Prince 
of Wales, by diploma, tbe degree of 
D.CL. This compliment was probably 
suggested by a present which his Royal 
Highness had recently made the Uni- 
versity, of four rolls of papyri from Por- 
tici. (see our vol. lxxx. i. S30, 439.) 

The final illness of King George tbe 
Third began early in October, 1810; 
and was first announced to Parlia- 
ment on tbe 29tb of November. A fort- 
night's adjournment in both houses was 
in tbe first instance carried. A com- 
mittee was then chosen to examine his 
Majesty's physicians ; and, after a keen 
discussion, tbe Regency Bill at length 
became a law on the 5th of February. 
On this the Prince of Wales immediately 
assumed the reins of government, under 
certain restrictions which terminated on 
the 1st of February, 1812. 

Af the opposition to the restrictions 
was conducted in concert with the Prince, 
some surprise was nianifeBted on his 
continuance in office of the Perceval Ad- 
ministration. In a letter which was 
published at the time, his Royal High- 
ness apprized Mr. Perceval, « that tbe 
irresistible impulse of filial duty and af- 
fection to his beloved and afflicted father, 
leads bim to dread that any act of the 
Regent might, in the smallest degree, 
have the effect of interfering with ttie 
progress of his Sovereign'^ recovery, and 
that ibis consideration alone dictates tbe 
decision now communicated to Mr. Per- 
ceval.*' Still, when the restrictions ex- 
pired, and the Prince became vested with 

the full powers of Soverei^ty, he did 
not withdraw his confidence from the 
Perceval Administration. 

The assassination of Mr. Perceval, 
May 1 1, 1812, led Mr. Stuart Wortley to 
move an address, praying bis Royal High- 
ness to take such measures as might be 
best calculated to form an efficient Ad- 
ministration. Tbe address was carried 
against Ministers, and tbe answer re- 
turned was, that bis Royal Highness 
would take tbe address into serious and 
immediate consideration. Expectations 
of a new Ministry were generally enter- 
tained, and the Prince successively gave 
directions to the Marquis Wellesley and 
Lord Moira, to negotiate with Lords 
Grey and Grenville. No such arrange- 
ment being found feasible, on the 8th 
of June the Earl of Liverpool stated in 
the House of Lords, that tbe Prince Re- 
gent had on that day appointed him 
First Lord of tbe Treasury ; and the Li- 
verpool Administration was immediately 
formed. On the 30th of November, the 
Prince Regent, now unfettered by re- 
strictions, made his first speech from the 

Tbe reign of George the 
its commencement (as may fairly be 
done) from this period, is full of glorious 
events; but we have not space to enter 
here into the history of the country. 
The policy of Great Britain had, with 
perseverance beyond example, consist- 
ently opposed itself first to tbe revolu- 
tionary principles of France, and after- 
wards single- banded to its great autocrat 
and tbe tyrant of Europe, Napoleon 
Buonaparte; King George the Third 
was not, however, permitted to wituess 
tbe triumph of his policy. The suc- 
cessful campaigns of Wellington took 
place in the earlier years of the Regency. 
On the downfall of the Emperor of tbe 
French in 1814, the two victorious so- 
vereigns, tbe Emperor of Russia and 
the King of Prussia, became the guests 
of the Prince Regent of Great Britain. 
The final overthrow of Napoleon was, in 
the following year, the work of British 
arms. On the 24th of July, 1815, as a 
mark of his high approbation of the dis- 
tinguished bravery and good conduct of 
the 1st and 2d life-guards at the battle 
of Waterloo, the Prince was pleased to 
declare himself Colonelin-chief of both 
those regiments. 

At the funeral of his royal mother 
Queen Charlotte, Dec. 2d, 1819, the 
Prince Regent officiated asci^ief mourner. 

On the shortly ensuing death of George 
the Third, Jan. 29, 1820, his Royal 
Highness changed his vicarious title of 
Sovereignty fur that of Kins; his coro- 
nation followed July 19* 1821. On the

mediately before Norroy King of Arms), 
and the Procession moved down the south

the Royal Body was placed on a platform 
under a canopy of purple velvet (having 
Uiereoo esc<icheoni of the Royal Arms, and 
surmounted by an Imperial Crown,) and the 
Crowns and cushions were laid upon the

and the Supporters btood on each side. 
Tlieir Royal Highnesses the Dukes of Cum- 
berland, Sussex, Prince George of Cumber- 
land, the Duke of Gloucester, and Prince

Assistant Supporters of the Pall and of the 
Canopy arranged themselves on each side of 
the Koyal Body. TTie Peers, Assistants to 
the Chief Mourner, arranged themselves be- 
hind the Princes of the Blood Royal. The

of the altar, on which was placed the fold 
plate of the Chapels Royal. 

Tlie part of the service before the inter- 
ment and the anthem being performed, the 
Ro}al Body was deposited in the vault; and 
the service being concluded, his Majesty, 
the Chief Mourner, was conducted from the 
choir to the chapter-room of the Chapel, 
preceded by the Sword of State. After a 
abort pause. Sir George Nayler, Garter Prin- 
cipal King of Arras, pronounced near the 
srmve the styles of His late Most Sorred

•« Tims it hath pleased Almighty God to 
take out of this transitory life, unto His Di- 
vine Mercy, the late Most High, Most 
Mighty, and Most Excellent Monarch, 

George tub Fourth, by the Qnee of God 
of the United Kingdom of Great Britaio and 
Ireland Kinc, Defender of the Faith, and 
Sovereign of the Most Noble Order of th« 
Garter; King of Hanover, and Dnke of 
Brunswick and Lunenburgh. Let us hum* 
bly Ijcseech Almighty God to bleaa and pro* 
serve with long life, bealth, and honour, aa^ 
all worldly happiness, the Most High, Mbtt 
Mighty, and Most Excellent Monarch, Oqr 
Sovereign Lord William the Fourth, 
now, by the Grace of God, of the United 
Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland King, 
Defender of the Faith, and Sovereign of the 
Most Noble Order of the Garter; Kine of 
Hanover, and Duke of Brunswick and Lu- 
nenbni;^h. GoD save Kino William the 
Fourth !" 

After which the Marqoesa of Couyngliam, 
Lord Steward of the Household to his late 
Majesty, and the other offioera of his late

office, and, kneeling near the grave, deposited 
the same in the royal vault; whereupon 
their Royal Higlmesset the Princes of the 
Blood Royal, the Great Officera of Sute, 
Nobility, and othera, who had composed the 
Procession, retired. 

The Knights of the several Orders, pre- 
sent on the occasion, wore their respective 
Collars, with white rosettes. In pursuance 
of his Majesty's order, the Great Officers of 
Sute, his Majesty's Ministers, and the Offi- 
cers of the Koyal Household, appeared in 
their state uniforms, with* black w^tcoats, 
breeches, stockings, and buckles, uniform 
swords with crape, and black feathers in 
their bats. The officers of the' Army and 
Navy a[»peared in full dress uniforms, with 
the mourning directed to be worn by them 
at Court. The Bi»hops appeared in their 
rochets ; the Peers, eldest Sons of Peers, 
Privy Councillors, and others, not included 
in the Royal order, appearied in full dress 

The Procession, from the Royal Apart- 
ments to the Choir of St. George's Chapel, 
was flanked by tlic Grenadiers of the loot 
Guards, every fourth man bearing a flam- 
beau. From four o'clock iu the morning until 
nine in the evening guns were fired at in- 
tervals of five minutes, and from nine o'clock 
until the conclusion of the Cciemony minute

Such Is an abstract of the official accounts 
authenticate<I by the signature of the Earl

both of the funeral cortege and s))ectators, 
the Duke of Cumberland descended into the 
royal vault, to witness the performance of 
the last necessary arrangements ; and, hav- 
ing remained for an hour and a half in the 
Chapel, before his departure saw the stonee 
replaced at the entrance of the sacred tomb- 
house of his Family.

Mb. Jobn Nickson. 

Jtme 16. At Leamington> after a 
short illness, aged 70. Mr. John Nickson, 
of Coventry, a member of the Society of 

He was a native of that city, and 
apprenticed to a relative at Eailngton, 
in Warwickshire. Thence be returned 
to an uncle in Coventry, with whom 
be resided a few years, and then en- 
tered into partnership with a Mr. Town- 
send, In the leather trade. On tbe 
death of Mr. T. be entered into tbe 
cotton trade with the late Mr. Browett, 
and carried on for many years a lu- 
crative and fiourishing business. Tbe 
decline of that manufacture, and the 
death of his partner, induced him to 
enter into another — the fabrication 
of trimmings — and be was also en- 
gaged in the selling of silk by commis- 
sion. In bis younger years be married 
a Miss Stretch, of Birmingham, by whom 
be had a son, who died young, and three 
daughters, two of whom are now smr- 

At that period, and for many subse- 
quent years, he was a most active and 
diligent antiquary. Knowing that there 
were in existence many ancient MSS. 
detailing the remarkable events which 
bad occurred in the ancient city of Co- 
ventry, he^ with tbe assistance of his nu- 
merous friends* eollected them together 
—be examined the files of tbe Cwftniry 
Mtremry^ from its establishment in tbe 
jfear 1741— 4be ancient books and writ- 
ings belong to tbe various chartered 
compaoies— and also a portion of the 

records belonging to tbe Corporation. 
From these be extracted every useful 
detail ; and by bis careful selection, has 
formed a volume of great value, it bad 
been his intention to have published a 
history of Coventry, and a prospectus 
was issued by Mr. Piercy, a bookseller, 
but it was not carried into execution. 
With indefatigable industry he collected 
tbe election papers, ftc. connected with 
Coventiy during the last century, tbe 
whole of which he arranged cbronulogi- 
cadly in two large folio volumes. He 
also, in conjunction with two other an- 
tiquarian friends, employed a celebrated 
artist to take drawings of every church, 
and tbe remains of ancient buildings in 
Warwickshire, in order to illustrate Sir 
W.Dugdale*s History of that County. He 
was a collector of coins ; and possessed 
a valuable series of Coventry tokens, 
which passed currently in tbe reign of 
Charles II. With tbe friends above- 
mentioned, be bad a silver and copper 
coinage struck off--on one side were re- 
presented tbe City arms, vis. tbe ele- 
phant and castle; and on tbe other, tbe 
ancient and modem public buildings of 
tbe Gty. Several Interesting commu- 
nications relating to Coventry were 
transmitted by him at various times to 
tbe Genileman't Magazine. He was an 
active assistant in founding tbe Coventry 
Library In 1761. His collections were 
ever open to tbe inspection of bis friends; 
and there are many still surviving, who 
recollect with pleasure the gratifleation 
they received from his communicative 
disposition. In a word, be was a kind 
warm-hearted friend, respected by his 
neighbours ; and in the various vicissi- 
tudes of life, was ever esteemed as a 
man of unimpeachable honour and in- 
tegrity. He was liberal in his senti- 
ments; and, during the late eventful 
times a truly loyal subject — unchange- 
able in bis friendship, and ever active 
for tbe welfare and benefit of bis native

P. J. obatnrety ** In p. 80 of last month, 
700 Mk whether the eipretsion of 'the 
l^oriow uncertainty of tne law' wtf fiitt 
employed on the occMion there mentioned ? 
1 eta answer that it was not. It bad been 
in use long before, and I have often heard 
that it originated thus. Soon after the first 
Lord Mansfield was appointed Chief Justice, 
which was in 1 766, he overruled some long 
estiJ>lished legal deoisioni, and introduced 
several inoovatiotts in the pmctice of his 
court. At that period ' the glorious memory 
of King WUliaro' was a standing toast ; and 
at a dinner of the Ju4ges and Counsel at 
Serjeants' Inn Hall, after the toast of the 
'glorious memory,* Mr. Wilbmham, a very 
eminent counsel of that day, gave ' die gkn 
rions uncertainty of the law,' which was le- 
velled at Lord MaasfieM's Judgments, and 
created much merriment. It has ever since 
been commonly drank at professional din- 
ners. — In p. 90, it is said of Mr. Nickson, 
whose age is stated to be 70, that he was an 
active assistant in founding the Coventry 
Library in 1 761 . One of the dates must be 

A Lincolnshire Correspondent states that 
*'the late Sir Scrope Bernard Morland 
(part i. p. 465) was the seventh son of Sur 
Rrancis Bernard 1 and was bonit not in Ire- 
knd, but at Perth Ambay, New Jersey, 
whilst his father was governor of that set- 
tlement. Sir Scrope was twice in Ireland as 
ivate secretary to the Marquees of Buck- 
;ham,--There b in the hall of Christ 
urch, Oxford, a portrait of Sir Francis 
Bernard, painted at Boston in America, by 
Copley, the father of Lord Lyndhurst, be- 
fore be crossed the Atlantic' There has 
been a trial in the Prerogative Court regard- 
mg the testamentary arrangements 01 the 
late Sir Scrope Bernard Morland. It ap- 
peared that he had made several wills, but 
cancelled them all, and left one commenced 
at his death. A copy of one made in 1 788 
had, however, been found, and the question 
was whether this was revived. On the S7th 
July Sir John Nicoll pronounced judgment 
against it ; and decided that Sir Scrope had 
dSed intestate. 

George Thomas Wyndham, esq. (part i. 
. 380,) wss the grandson, not the son, of 
obn Wyndham, esq. and Elisabeth Dalton. 
His father was George Wyndham, esq. who 
died Jan. 3, 1810, seed 44; and his mo- 
^r Marianne, dau. of Col. Philip Bacon of 
Ipswich. His three sisters were married ; 
Marianne, in 1829, to the Rev. Cremer 
Cremer, Rector of Felbrigg and Melton, 
Norfolk; Arabella, in 1827, to the Rev. 
'9faw2^ Wbitefoord, Rector of Westerfiekl, 


Suflfblk; and Sophia, in 1829, to the Rev. 
C. Barnwell, of Mileham Hall, Norfolk. 

In p. 16 is an inquiry af^r the Duckets 
of Wharton. She died 13 Jan. 1777, of 
which there is a report in Dodsley's Annual 
Register, p. 227, of the edition reprinted in 

G. W. L. remarks, '* Having occasion to 
refer to some papers, the following para- 
graph copied from the John Bv/Z Sunday 
paper of the II th November, 1827, was 
among them, which, if it be correct, our 
Almanacks must be at variance with histori- 
eal feet. — ' It is singular that many of the 
Almanadcs and other Annuals mention the 
4th of November as the anniversary of the 
landing of the Prince of Orange (afterwards 
WiUiam III.) at Torbiqr- It is well known 
that that important event took place on the 
anniversary of the Powder Plot, a coinci- 
dence which excited much remark at the 
moment. Burnett (who was on board one 
of the Prince's ships) says, the 4 th of No- 
vember being the day on which the Prince 
was bom and married, he fencied, if he could 
land that day, it would look auspicious to 
the army, and animate the soldiers. But 
we all, who considered that the day followii^ 
being Gunpowder Treason day, our landing 
that day might have a good effect on the 
minds of the English nation, were better 
pleased to see that we could land no sooner.' 
—This extract accords with Ames's copy of 
the Remembrancer 1736 (now in my pos-

errors. Should not, therefore, in future 
our Almanacks be thus rectified, viz. Nov. 
4th, K. William ham 1650, — Nov. 5th,

which there is between Induairyand

Ine mischief which has been intro-

cular affairs. This change has pro- 
duced, amongst farmers, an increasing 
disestcem and a diminished rcTcrence 
for the Clergy. Brought into collision 
and competition with ihem, on sub- 
jects which they understand probably 
as well or better than those whom they 
had been accustomed to regard as in- 
structors, and of a superior cast not 
only of rank but of talent, they soon 
feel their own strength, and the whole 
country may be safely challenged to 
produce a single instance in which the 
parson farmer is not either scoffed at 
for his ignorance and incompetence in 
the business into which he has in- 
truded, or sneered at aud despised for 
his folly, or cajoled and cheated by the 
consent and connivance of many who, 
whilst be remained in his own proper 
sphere, were his attentive hearers, re- 
spectful followers, and conscientious 

Amongst the poor, he who formerly 
ministered to their wants, comforted 
them in their distresses, relieved their 
penury, and successfully interposed his 
good offices between the harsh and 
unfeeling conduct of a brutal overseer 
and the suffering classes of his pa- 
rishioners, — the farmins parson now 
appears in a very opp<Mite light: — as 
hard a task-master, as niggardly a con- 
tributor, as severe and rieid an exactor 
of their daily toil, as the Keenest dealer 
or the most impenetrable clown in his 
parish. He tee$ his people with new 
eyes, as they do him ; and when they 
hear him, can it be expected that it is 
with equal reverence? Look at the 
condition of the land occupied by this 
new class of agriculturists. Is it im- 
proved ? On tne contrary, with very 
few exceptions, the Parson's farm is in 
the worst condition of any in the pa- 
rish. Ignorance and neglect are so 
apparent, that in his new trade he is 
the laughing-stock of all his neigh- 
bours, and instead of improving them 
by his example, he is derided as an ex- 

Eerimentalist, and sometimes insulted 
y those who might have been his ad- 
miring or ai least his well-disposed 
hearers $ who would have been willing 
to improve by his instructions upon 
subjects which he understands better 
than they ; but who conscious of more 
wisdom, in their own line, despise him 
as an intruder upon it. 

Even in some few instances (if any 

such there be) where the Parson un- 

Qt/s and practises his new em- 

plorment with |ieeuiyiary advaiHage, 
ana succeeds in skilfully cultivating his 
land, it is at the risk, nay, at the cer- 
tain^ of losing the far greater portion 
of that res|)ect which as a Clergyman 
he might have received from those 
whom he has converted into envious 
rivals and competitors : fotf in the de- 
gree in which he succeeds with his 
agriculture, he will sink in their esti- 
mation as a Parish Priest : and in the 
view of all others it is clear that the 
more he withdraws himself from cle- 
rical duties to attend to secniar affairs, 
the less he will be qualified for the due 
performance of that office which ought 
to be his sole employ meni. 

The angry feelings, the jealousies, 
the usurpation of at least the means of 

f;iving employment and support of one 
amily in every parish — which must 
be fairly calculateo upon, wherever the 
Parson attempts or pretends to culti- 
vate his own glebe, are evident ; — the 
neglect of ecclesiastical duties, in con- 
sequence of such employments, is every 
day more and more observable. I do 
not say that the farming Parson in 
every instance neglects to go to church; 
but show me the man ** whose talk is 
of bullocks," and whose occupation is 
the routine of the farm-yard, or the 
dairy, and permit me to ask for the 
proofs in his discourses of those intel- 
lectual attainments which are essen- 
tial to him as a Clerical Instructor, 
and in his behaviour, of the effects of 
that abstraction from the cares and 
business of the world, which can alone 
duly qualify him to minister about 
holy things ? 

If it were possible to contrive the 
union of more discordant characters 
than that of a cattle-dealer or a farmer, 
a Clergyman and a Magistrate, which 
is now so common amongst us, I ap- 
prehend it is only to be found in the 
picture drawn by the inimitable Field- 
ing, of his Trufliber, which even at a 
period far less |)olished than the pre- 
sent age, designedly held out a beacon 
to warn those whom it especially con- 
cerned, against the danger of bringing 
the sacrecl order into contempt, by un- 
worthily blending such opposite cha* 

Whilst the agriculturists are loud in 
their complaints of the peculiar hard- 
ships to which they are reduced, can it 
be credited that the Clergy believe 
them, and yet themselves engage in 
farming : or can it surprise the public

by all classes. The building is not re-

Had Napoleon remained on the 
ihrone of Trance, this Church would 
have been demolinlieO some years back ; 
he 1iilende<l npcoini; a road from the 
eastern facade of the Louvre, lo ihe 
Place de la BaUilU. That pinn would 
"" ■ }, M-wellt 

bellishcd Paris; for It would have lud 
open many of the narrow, fetid streets 
in the heart uf the town, where, it is 
scarcely eaaggeraiion to say the sun* 
beams never peoeiraie. A new site 
was fixed upon for a Church lo replace 
it; but the priests have hitheno had 
too much influence to allow the im- 
provement to be taken into considcra- 
lion. However, as the present King, 
Louis- Philip, is known lo palruniic all 
measures of public uiility, wr may soon 
see the laleLmiieror's plan carried into 

The western front of this Church 
looks on the bejuiifut faiade of tha 
Louvre, and is at a sulRcieni distance 
to allow a convenient view of both 
ediliccs. On the north side is the Rue 
Chilperic! on the south, the Rut dci 
Prilrei, and on the east, the Rue dt 
PAH-re Sec. The Church, however, 
is not detached ; for houses and shops 
have been erected in corners, formed 
by projeclina pans of the building j 

fuicd memorials of ditTerent ages, ex- 
hibiting in some |iarti Ihe offerings of 
superstitious pieiy ; in others, the iracea 
of revolutionary spoliation. 

A Church was erected on this spot 
in 6o6. by King Chilperic .- it was de- 
dicated to Germain, Ihe Iwenticlh Bi- 
shop of Paris, who died in bid, and 
was long called St. Germain -la. Ronde, 
on account of its circular form. That 
BIshon had excommunicated Chati- 
beri. King of Paris, for polygamy; and 
was in such great reputation, ihat 
many persons bequeathed their pto- 

fieity lo defray the ex|)ense of Iraiis- 
ating his remains to the new Church. 
The original edifice having been de- 
stroyed by the Normans, was rebuilt 
by king Robert, in the beginning of 
the elEventh century; when it received 
Ihe name of 5/. Germain VAuxerroii, 
to diilinguish it from another Cbuich 
dedicateil lo Si. Germain. But Alex- 
ander 111. in a bnll of 1165, continues 
lo give il Ihe old appellation ; he calls 
it Monailcrium tiancti Gemani Ro- 

'Ihe Church at present consJ^ils of 
some portions of tiiat erected by King 
Robert, with additions and reparations, 
made by the Bnglish in 1423. It be- 
longs lo no particular clasi of architcc- 
luret and it becomes difficult to give 
on intelligible account of so irregular a 
building. Viewed from iVw weu., <He

the princiDBl door are three statoes; 
they stand opoii brackets formed by 
figures of deiomied animalsy and in 
the mouldings over the door are rows 
tt various little monsters. A turret of 
pbin stone work is seen on each side of 
the body of the Churoh ; and a number 
of ornamented pinnacles, on the top of 
the buttresses, with projecting spouts, 
terminating in misshapen figures, give 
nther a grotesque appearance to the 

The porch not extending the whole 
breadth of the edifice, the space on 
each side was aAerwards fillea up by 
two chambers ; one of them is destined 
for the administration of the Eucharist, 
the other for Baptisms : an inscription 
Over each, denotes the epoch of their 
erection ; the former was built in \60B, 
the latter in 1639. 

• The interior of the Church is not 
very striking : the double ailes are so 
very wide, that including the little 
chapels which encircle the place, the 
body IS not more than l-6th of the 
buifdins. The pillars which support 
the roof over the ailes» are round, and 
very massive in proportion to their 
height ; a few of them have mouldings. 
The absence of a gallery above tne 
ailesj has caused the windows to be 
very lof\y ; although of equal height, 
there is a great want of uniformity in 
them, whicn is the more conspicuous, as 
tome are ornamented with stained glass. 

* This Church was for a Ions time 
collegiate as well as parochial ; but the 
repeated disputes between the incum- 
bents and the canons, induced the Psr- 
Kament to unite the chapter to that of 
N6tre Dame. Many persons of emi- 
nence have been buried here; and it 
hat often been selected for the delivery 
of faneral orations in commemoration 
of persons who have died elsewhere. 
Amonj; otheis, the Chancellor Olivier, 
who died at Amboise in 15^0. It was 
die bell of this Church which gave the 
signal for murdering the Protestants, 
in 1572; and during the revolution 
which took place last month, the 
Church was used as an hospital for 
those who were wounded in attacking 
the Louvre on this side. 

' There are a few monuments in this 
Church, which are interesting as xYtt 
wrecks of other days. In a little chapel 
in the sooth-east comer, are twosutues, 
about the natural siae, which repre- 
•mt two individuals named Stepoen 
^Mfe, father aad ton, who both filled 

the office of Chancelkir of France. 
The figure of the father is in a reclining 
posture I the inscription states that his 
heari was buried there, and that he 
died Dec. 1 1, l636. The other figure 
Is kneeltne: he died Oct. 26, 1877, 
and according to the inscription, his 
body was interred in that cbapeL Both 
these monuments were restored in 
1898, by their descendant, the Marquis 
d'Aligre, peer of France. 

In a chapel, nearly opposite, are 
two statoes, two busts, ana a long in- 
scription on black marble. They are 
memorials of the Rostaing family, and 
were restored in 18S4, by the present 
Marquis de Rostaing. The busts and 
the inscription were formerly in the 
Church ot the Feuillanltf the statues 
were in this Church, which contained 
the tomb of the elder branch of the 

TKere are also a few tablets inscribed 
with the names of persons who have 
died since the Restoration; in parti- 
cular a marble stab to the memory of 
the Duke de Riviere, governor of the 
Duke of Bordeaux : he died April 21, 
1828, and is buried at Bel- Air, near 
Bourjf^es. The inscription is surmount- 
ed with his arms ; which being only 
in outline, do not sufficiently indicate 
the blazon: they are paly of'^six, over 
all a chevron. 

This Church was outside the city 
until the reign of Louis- le-Gros, who 
built a wall to protect the northern 
suburbs of Paris. Philip Augustus, 
in 1190, built another of more sub- 
stantial materials, and coroprisinff a 
more extended circumference : it left 
the bank of the river at the spot where 
the Pont det Arit now stands, and 
passed direct to the Hue St, Honord, 
Where a fortified gate was erected, near 
the present site of the Oratoire.

Mr. Urban, July ig. 

IN the Court-room of Bamburgh Cas- 
tle, in Northumberland, there are 
four pieces of tapestry, which are un- 
derstood to have been brought thither 
from the Deanery of Ripon about forty 
years since. They are of considerable 
dimensions, the two largest measuring 
16 feet by 8, and containing several fi- 
gures as large as life. The colours at 
one time have been extremely vivid, but 
are now faded in some degree from age. 
Upon the whole, however, they are in 
excellent preservation, and exhibit such 
correct drawing and good composition, 
that it is evident x\\fi paintings or designs 
from which they were worked must 
have been the ptoduction of no com- 
mon master. The first of the series I 
imagine to represent the Emperor Jus- 
tinian, seated at a lar^e table, and en- 
gaged with his commissioners in form- 
ing the celebrated Digest of Roman 
law. A remarkable figure standing be- 
hind his chair may probably represent 
Trebouianus. Two of the lawyers are 
in oriental costume, and one of the two 
may be supposed to be Basilides, who 
had been Prefect of the EasL In the 
second, the Emperor is seen advancing 
in royal apparel to an 0|)en temple of 
Janus. Slaves newly manumitted are 
crowding round him, and kissing the 
hem of his earment. Other persons 
are also introduced as spectators of the 
scene. Justinian may here be con- 
iectured to be in the act of proclaim- 
x£^ iiDiiiediately after one of the great 

victories gained by Belisarius, the e/er- 
nal p#ace— which by the way lasted two 

The third is a coronation. The Em- 
peror kneels on a cushion, with his 
sceptre in his right hand, while a 
stately figure in a scarlet robe is placing 
a crown upon his head. Before him 
stand two Flamens holding an open 
book, on which may be distinguished 
the words Lex Romanor. 

Between the priests and the Empe- 
ror lies a naked sword wreathed with 
olive on another cushion, and beside it 
a kneeling page throws the light of a 
torch on the open volume. This trans- 
action is represented as taking place 
at night on a terrace, sud the populace 
are gathered together in a court below. 

In the fourth piece of tapestry, Jus- 
tinian appears not exactly in a hunting 
dress, but with a hunting spear in his 
hand, in a wild country, with only 
two attendants. He has come sud- 
denly upon two of his hounds, which 
lie dead, and apparently poisoned, on 
the ground. A chased bowl stands 
near them, and a stream of water 
gushes from a rock at a small distance. 
The countenance and attitude of the 
Emperor are strongly expressive of sur- 
prise and regret. 

As I have not happened to meet in 
Gibboii or Procopius with any circum- 
stance in the life of Justinian corre- 
sponding to that which is detailed in 
this picture, I should feel much ob- 
liged to any of your correspondents 
vvno may be able and willing to throw 
light upon it; and still more if they 
could refer me to an^ engravings, etch- 
ings, or paintings, in which the sub- 
jects alluded to are treated in the man- 
ner I have described. I may add, that 
the features of the Emperor Justinian, 
and such portion of his costume as ap- 
pears on medals, are faithfully copied 
m these Tapestries. 

Yours, &c. W. N. Darnell.

Walk through the Highlands. 
(Continued from Pari i, p. 004.) 

WE had now madeconsiderable way 
towards the island of Staffa, the 
object of our voyage, when we first 
discorered a very handsome and^ gal- 
fant wherry aclvanciug majestically 
with all sail towards the same destina- 
tion. We rejoiced in the prospect of 
^mpany, with whom, as the day was 
DOW delightfully fine, we might explore 
the cavern wiih advantage. We were 
considerably ahead, and landed first. 

This process was extremely trouble- 
tome, for though the boat was drawn 
well up to the shore, yet the way was 
rough and difficult, lying over the 
broken and very uneven columns of 
basalt, lately washed by the ' waves, 
covered over with slime and sea weed, 
atui extremely slippery. We were 
moreover benumbed with cold, and 
far from having the perfect use of ei- 
ther our hands or feet, which were 
also cramped from our long confine- 
ment in the boat. Our advances there- 
fore were slow and awkward ; but the 
road, as we ascended from the sea, be- 
came less slippery, and, with the as- 
sistance of our guides, we speedily ar- 
rived at the Cavern. 

The swell and the surf were on this 
occasion so violent, that there was no 
possibility of entering the cave in the 
boat. We had, therefore, with the 
aid of our boatmen, who were ex- 
tremely careful and adroit, to penetrate 
to the end of the cavern on foot. 

We had scarcely entered its moutb» 
ere it required the utmost care and 
considerable coolness to advance. The 
ledge of rock which supported our 
steps was extremely ruggeo, and some- 
times slippery; in some places fright- 
/uJJy narrow, and with but a very mo- 
fferste portion of light. In one parti- 

r /«// t/jerc is scarcely room for 

one foot, the portion of rock not being 
the width of a shoe-sole, and here, 
unless supported by the boatmen, who 
know the path well, and creep down 
below, there would I conceive be an 
absolute necessity for retreating. 

The nails of oor shoes, from our 
DOW extended peregrinations, had been 
worn completely smooth, and we felt 
our footing very unstable. One false 
step would have precipitated us over 
sharp and rugged rocks into the tea, 
roaring at a great depth below. A 
person whose nerves were not tolera- 
oly well strung, would feel himself iq 
a very unpleasant situation, and, upon 
the whole, I think the way is not with- 
out danger to those even of the coolest 
tem|)erament. Certainly it was a path 
I should not like to tread a second 
time ; and this same step before men- 
tioned has I understand deterred not a 
few from encountering it once. A- 
mongst the rest oor boatmen informed 
us that the Duke of Argyle, on a late 
visit, chose rather to swim into the 
cavern, in which exploit he was ac- 
companied bv Staffa, the proprietor of 
the island. For my own part, I was not 
sorry when I once more saw the light 
of cfay on the outside of the cavern. 

We remained a considerable time in 
absolute astonishment, under the im- 
posing roof of this stupendous edifice, 
Duilt without hands, and in which the 
sound of the hammer had i»ever been 
beard. The entrance is spacious, 
broad, and lofty. The sides and roof 
are composed of the basaltic pillars 
before named, ranged in the nicest 
order. Below u ihe sea,-— at the time 
we were there of the most beautiful 
green ; the sides and further end of the 
cavern edged with foam. Altogether 
the appearance is wonderfully impos- 
ing; something of a tupentitious dread 
creeps over the beholder, and the cave 
itself appears 

*' awfbl at the consecniad roof, 
Rc-aoboing pious aotheros." 

Looking outwards, you have a very 
extensive and moat magnificent view 
of the surroanding ocean, whose waves 

S their sullen roar delight and elevate 
e mind, and force it to look up with 
wonder at the works of the great Ar- 
chitect of all things. The most indif- 
ferent observer must I think be stricken 
with the moving scenes around him, 
and go forth from their contemplation 
humbled and subdued. Finally, the 
magnificence which here m&ets the 
eye, and of w\i'\cV\ 1 ^auOi w^^tVC ^.Uo-

On Creating Peen for Life. 


restored to his body, or Tigonr to his miod. 
But Nature is indifferent to honours ; and 
infirmities will seize their ▼ictim, without 
considering that it was intended he should 
hear appeals in the House of Lords." 

Eren when an individual is less ad- 
vanced in years, the general uncertainty 
of life forms almost a sufficient objec- 
tion against making a Peer of a man 
with a family but no wealth; and "a 
recent instance" was memorably on- 
fortunate. In that case, 

** the expediency of placing a learned 
Judge in the House to assist in its decisions, 
was so great as to surmount the obstacle ; but 
he died before it had been benefitted by his 
services, leaving his successor without a suf- 
ficient Income to maintain a private gentle- 
man, and who has already become a pensioner 
of the crown.** — p. IS. 

The author has not overlooked the 
most obvious objections that may be 
made to his proposal. He presumes 
them to be, 

1. *'That the dignity of a Peer of 
the Realm is in its nature hereditary , 
and that, if deprived of that quality, 
the constitution of the House of^ Lords 
will be changed.*' This he affirms to 
be merely an assumption arising from 
the general practice ; but that, besides 
the precedents of creations for life 
whicn he adduces, the power the 
Crown has always possessed of limiting 
a peerage according to its pleasure (as 
in the before noticed cases of Norbury 
and Canning,and a muhitudeof others,) 
sufficiently proves that it is not neces- 
sarily hereditary. 

2. ** That creating Peers /br lift 
will tend to form two classes ofPeers." 
To this it is replied that the Represen- 
tative Peers of Scotland and Ireland (the 
latter possibly ancient, the former un- 
doubtedly so,) are already specimens of 
Peers for life. That Bishops are also 
Peersybr life ; and that, if the children 
of the proposed Peers partake of the 
present privileges of Peers' children, 
they will so far have the advantage of 
our Spiritual Peerage, whose wives and 
families have not special rank allotted 
to ihem. It may be added, that the 
tenants of old peerages wanting heirs, 
are in no better condition than Peers 
for life. At all events it is presumed 
that the learned men we have been 
principally considering would from 
their personal characters never rank as 
a despised class, whatever danger there 
may oe of that being the fate of their 

pasteriiy, if hereditary Lords, 

Thirdly, are to be considered thoae 
standing merits of an hereditary arit- 

" that the living representative of a mao 
ennobled for his services becomes a memo- 
rial of his virtues, and stimulates others to 
similar exertions ; and that one of the chief 
incentives to serve our country is, not only 
the hope of acquiring for ourselves, but of 
transmitting to our posterity, the dignity of 
a Peer of the Realm." 

These advantages are not denied ; but 
in the present plan others are correspon- 
dent. The descendants of a peer for 
life, instead of becoming degenerate, at 
those of some hereditary peers, may be 
stimulated to achieve the same or 
higher honours. If fewer are able to 
transmit a title to posterity, more will 
be able to attain one. 

It must, also, be distinctly under- 
stood, that our author does not con- 
template a cessation of the creation of 
peerages for perpetuity, but only that 
none be conferred without correspond- 
ent fortune, or without those eminent 
services on which the nation, by Par- 
liament, may be disposed to confer 
such fortune. 

We have only to add, that we feel 
well satisfied with the plan recom- 
mended in this letter. It is highly 
desirable as an improvement to the 
judicial character of the House of 
Lords ; it may properly give the first 
coronet to a distinguished Senator of 
the lower house, an hereditary peerage 
following or not according to circum- 
stances; and for military or naval ser- 
vices it may take the place of that 
something better than a Baronetcy-— 
the Irish peerage; from the creation of 
which the Crown has been so nearly 
debarred since the Union, and has thus 
perhaps been occasionally forced to con- 
fer British peerages where an Irish ti- 
tle would otherwise have sufficed. 

Finally, we presume there would be 
the same moral checks to a King or his 
Minister's excess in creating peerages 
for life, as at present on their conferring 
hereditary peerages j the prerogative 
being now unlimited (as to British 
peerages) except by public opinion. 
Nor will the present Peers object to a 
measure which will so greatly tend to 
maintain the respectability and dignity 
of their order. The commencement of 
a new reign is a proper era for its

convenience of the inhabitants ; the 
exterior is not rcinurkable for its archi- 
tectural beauty, but the interior is 
tastefully fitted up in the modern 
Gothic style, and ornamented with a 
handsome altar-piece: it aBbrds ac- 
commodation to nearly fifteen hun- 
dred persons. Here are also two meet- 
ing nouses ; one belonging to the 
Wesleyan Methodists, inc other to 
the Calvinists; the former is rather an 
elegant building. At the water-side 
is a small market- house. The town, 
composed chiefly of detached cottaees, 
extends more than a mile up a hill to 
the west; about midway through it, 
on the south side, is the parish church 
(dedicated to the blessed Vir£;in), a 
spacious embattled structure, built in 
tne style of the latter part of the four- 
teenth, or beginning of the fifteenth 
century, with red sandy stone, now 
rough-casted. It consists of a nave, 
chancel, north and south ailes, with a 
transept in each ; at the west end is a 

{>lain embattled tower, a hundred feet 
ligh ; on each side is a small circular 
turret, through which access is f^ained 
to the roof of the Church. Facing the 
south is a large porch, having a groined 
ceiling; in the centre are three figures, 
but the white washer has been so in- 
dustrious, that it is almost an impossi- 
bility to recognise for whom they are 
meant. The interior, notwithstand- 
ing its present neglected stale, and the 
numerous 'churchwardenizalions' it 
has unden;one, still retains traces of its 
original elegance. The aibles are lofty, 
and separated by obtuse arches ; the 
columns appear to have been painted 
in imitation of red marble, as portions 
are visible through the whitewash. A 
largi* old gallery stands in the choir, 
whilo a lesser, erected about three 
years since, occupies a part of the 
south aile: each transept is also fur- 
nished with one; in that in the south 
side is a wooden tablet, hearing a Iode 
Ji»t of donations to the poor, in red 
and black letters, placed there in 1692. 
The same year the Church was repaired 
and ornamented with Scripture sen- 
tences, '* when Mr. Jlobt. Lake and 
Geo. Gillard were churchwardens.*' 
The opposite gallery is devoted entirely 
to the use ot the Buller family. At 
the head of the stairs u a handsome 
old-fashioned monument : 

"Id memory of Edward Yarde, eldest 

ton of Edward Yarde, esq. of Churtton 

lCour$, H-ho Jifd at Eton School, April j* 

ISth, in the year of our Lord 1710, to the 
extreme afiBiction of his &ther and mother. 
Elieu ! quam brevis est aetas, et raraseoectua, 
Dum puer hie properat vivere, vitap«rit." 

Within the precincts of the pew is 
the following inscription on a slab of 
statuary marble : 

" M. S. Fraocisci Buller, B«roDetti, per 
pluiquam septemdece m auooa Banci Regif> 
deinde per sex anuot Banci Commuoia Juiti- 
ciarii; viri memorabilit, qui in causis dis-

terio divi Audrseae prope Hoipitium Gray- 
eose, juxta rellquiai Edwardi Buller^ filii 

The following is painted in black 
letter on a small wooden tablet, which 
hangs loosely on one of the pillars in 
the nave : , 

"John Crout of Brixham in this eonoty 
of Deuon, y?,* who died the 80 vf July, 
1641, gaue ten shillingea yearely for euer

llockhowie in this parriih of Brixham, to 
be distrubvted euery newerea day, by the 
help of y* chvrch wardens and oueneera of 
the poorc." 

The sounding-board of the palpit is 
surmounted by the figure of an angel 
gaudily painted and gilded, blowing a , 
trumpet. On each side the nave, iro- * 
mediately beneath the cornice, are two 
others holding shields, charged with 
armorial bearings; on one are the arms 
of Courtney, on another those of Yarde. 
The font is exceedingly beautiful, but 
the sytumetry of its ancient tracery and 
foliage is now eclipsed by modern ot" 
namenis, bestowed on it lif the white' 
wash brush ! The Scripture sentences 
referred to above are destroyed. At 
the eastern end of the south aisle are 
several monumentj to members of the 
Fnwnes family, and in the correspond- 
ing end of the north aisle are three old 
ones of the Uptons ; on the first, a lar^e 
dark coloured marble one in the fa- 
shionable form of the reign of the se- 
cond Charles, supported by Grecian 
columns, and having their arms on 
the top, are the following inscriptions : 

" In memory of John Vpton of Lvpton, 
Eaq. who piovily and rignteovsly served 
God and his Covntry, in his private and 
public station while a Ivstice of Peace, and 
jBvrgesse for Dartmovth in three Parlia-

Brixham derives its name from one 
of its early proprietors Brithric. In 
the reiffn of 9i. Edward the Confessor 
one Ulfe or Ulphus was the owner of 
the manor, and at the Conquest it was 
granted to a Norman Baron named 
Ralph. Afterwards it became the pro- 
]peny of the powerful family of VauU 
tort, Barons of Harberion. At the 
4leath of Lord Roger de VawUort, with- 
x)ot issue, in the reign of Henry I. it 
•was divided between the sons of hit 
two sitters, Beatrix, married to the 
Lord Corbet, and Avise, married to 
•Pbmery of Berry Pomery. A fier pass- 
knz through ^various hands, it has been 
told oflf in small portions, the possess- 
ors of which ar« denominated the 
" Quay Lords." 

Lupton in this parish was the birth- 
dace of Nicholas Upton, a learned 
lawyer, and one of the earliest writers 
op lieraldry. 

Torbay, the Totonesiiim Littus of 
|bc Romans, has been^ the theatre of 
many great events in English history. 
Here it was, as we are told, Vespasian 
landed, when he invaded Britain in 
ihe reign of Claudius, A.D. 49. But 
the most celebrated is the landing of 
William, Prince of Orange, afterwards 
William IIL at Brixham, on the 5lU 
bf Nov. 1688. On his accession to 
the throne, he created his Admiral 
Arthur Herbert Baron Torbay, and 
Earl of Torrington ; but the titles be- 
came extinct at the death of the Earl. 
Mt. Dunstanville, a merchant, who 
made a tour through the South-Haini 
about forty years ago, relates the fol- 
lowing anecdote of William's laiMtirrp;, 
as told him by an ased native of Brix- 
ham, who was a child when this great 
event happened : 
As It wiiM tow water, and the pier 
noi beinf: then in e^igtcoQc, the Prince 
w»5 brought on shore on the shouIJefs 

of a sailor ; but before be pat foot on 
the landing-place (which was eoyered 
with specutors,) he exclaicned with a 
loud voice, ** Welcome or ootT* He 
was immediately answered with tbe 
shoots of the multitude, and cries of 
••Welcome I welcome l" 

During the late war, this bay was 
one of the stations of the Channel fleet. 

The population of Brixham is com- 
puted at SIX thousand.

Mr. Urban, Grinuby, July 1 1 . 

IN my former communiaation,* I 
have endeavoured to prove that Let- 
ters were in use before the time of 
Moses ; and I am further of opinion that 
they were known to the predecessors 
of Abraham } for Tully savs, that the 
Egyptian Hercules^ who lived but a 
abort time after tbe death of Thoth, 
wrote tbe letters used in Phrygian. 
Semiramis, the widow of Ninus, who 
flourished about the time of Abraham, 
erected a pillar to commemorate her 
conqoests, and engraved upon it this 
inscription: '« I, reigning In Nineveh; 
made the bounds of my kingdom to- 
wards the east the river Inamane ; and 
towards the south it is bounded by tbe 
land that bears frankincense and 
myrrh."* And, as we are informed 
by Diodorus Siculus,' the same royal 
lady received letters or missives from 
an ancient Indian King, relative to her 
eastern expedition; for the Indians had 
letters from the most early times. Mr. 
Maurice thinks that the Vedas were 
written in a character which was de* 
rived from Noah, and had been used 
by the antediluvians ; and Sir William 
Jones' conjectures that the Yayush 
Veda was couiposed 1580 years before 
the birth of Christ; i. e. nine years 
before the birth of Moses, and Qiaety 
before the exodus from £gypt« 

Pliny 4 affirms that the Pclasgi, the 
founder of whom was a man in Japhet*s 
line in the eldest times, first brought 
letters into Latiom ; and that they 
were in Italy before the Lydian colony, 
under Tyrrhenus, came thither and 
expelled them.* And the'Lydian co« 
XoTij was but four aenerations after 
ilie time of Menes.* The most ancient 
Greek letters were called Pelasgic, and

to writing ; and Pliny': from Epigenes 
says, they were engraven on brick pil-

Thoih reigned in ^ypt. 

Noah founded the empire of China, 
and instructed hissubjrciiinthit useful 
art ; and it is remarkable that the 
Chinese alphabet at this day, if an ac- 
t:uinulDtion of eighty thousand charae- 
leri may be dignified with that appel- 
lation, i«, according to the best autho- 
rities, hut a (light variation from the 
system of writing communicated to his 
immediale descendants by that pa- 

If thejK leiiinionics be admitted, it 
will appear that leltcri were praciisod 
by Noah qfler the flood ; and we may 
very_ reasonably conjecture that he was 
not ignorant oLthem Irfore that event, 
because he was six hundred years of 
age when he entered the ark | and 
there is no ekiiling evidence to prove 
that he invented iheiu afterwards. 

A learned modern author, Dr, Dnig, 
is decisive on thi) point. He ihinii 
the litlcfi of the Hebrew alphabet, 
which he considers the same as the 
Chaldaic and the Syrian, were antedi- 
luvian. After observing that " ihete 
was certainljr a tradition among the 
Jews that writing was in aDtediluvian 
invenlioo," this writer adds, " there 
must have been a tradition to the laroe 
purpose among the Chaldeans, since 
the writers who have copied from Be. 
losus, the celebrated Chaldean hitlo- 
lian, speak of alphabetical writing as 
an orf well knoien among the aitlfdilit' 
viana. According to tnem, Oannei, 
the Chaldean legislator, gave bis dis- 
ciples an insight into /W/erf aud icicDce. 
This person also wrote concerning the 
generation of maokindj of their dif- 
ferent pursuits, civil polity, &c. In- 
mediaiely before the deluji;e, lay ihay, 
the ^ Crnnu* apjieDml lo Sisulhrtis 
or Xisalhrus, atxl commanded him lo 
coHimil to writing the beginning, iro- 
proiement, and conclusion of all things 
down lo the present time, and to bury 
these accaunis securely in the temple 
of the sun at Seppara. All these tra- 
ilitlons may be fabulous in the main;

Mr TI*nAv St, Servan, France, 
Mr. U»BAK, June 29. 

IN perusing an historical work of 
tome merit, CBelsbam'a History of 
Great Britain from the Peace of A- 
miena), I was painfully suprised to find 
the reltgiont distiifbanccs which took 
place in the Sooth of France in I8IA« 
sot only exaggereied hot greatly mis- 
* Mr. B. says, 

*' The Protestants, known as the lealous 
friends of the Revolution, and much &• 
voured under the late reign, were exposed to 
every species o( vexation, ndt to say perse- 
cution." — vol. n. p. 143. 

** Thus was France left without defenoe 
(by disbanding the army), and great con- 
cision ensued i particularly in those depart- . 
ments where the Protestants most abounded; 
and at Nismes a sauguinary soene took place, 
which revived the recollection of St. Bar- 
tholomew." — p. 180. 

Soaae partiality may be excoted in 
ao author whose prepossessions are not 
dtsgnised ; but troth can only be ascer- 
tained by hearing both sides. Yon 
dmibtless remeromir, Mr. Urban, the 
-ferment which those troubles excited 
in England, and Justly so, if the repre- 
sentations made of them were correct. 
As an instance of different opinion, it 
may be recollected, that the Rev. Sir 
H. W. Moncrieff advocated earnestly 
the cause of the Protestants, while 
has son*iQ-law Dr. Stoddart dented 
that they had suffered 00 account of 
their relt^u. 

I solicit the attention of every can- 
did reader to the following passage, 
taken from a zealous and uncompro- 
mising Protestant :

•— Meiners, Histeire de la Reformation, 
182ff, p. 184. 

I consider this writer the better au- 
thority in such a ease, as he is by 00 
means disposed to exculpate the Ca- 
tholics on otiter occasions. Excepting 
a few inaccuracies, there is no history 
of the Reformation more worthy the 
perusal of literary men, as its effects on 
science and politics are ably traced out 
in this volume.

Mr. Urban» Retford, July 3. 

TURNING over the other day the 
leaves of that important and va- 
luable depository of the public records 
of Great Britain, &c. called Bymer'a 
Fadera, 1 found (in the underwritten 
words and language) an atleetalion by 
King Edward ill. that a woman com- 
mitted to prison for the murder of 
her husband, subsisted in the said pri- 
sonjbriu days without eating or drink- 
ins, and his pardon granttd to her ia 
acknowledgement of the miracle. 

At present I shall forbear to make 
any observation on the superstitious 
crrauliiy' of a Monarch so renowned, 
and whose memory is so justly dear to' 
the English nation, but shall be happy 
to learn from any of your correspond- 
ents whether there are any historical 
circomstances connected with a fact so 
exactly recorded, and so indisputable as 
the release of the murderer for the 
supposed miracle.

(To be continued J 

Mr. Urban, 

I BEG to solicit the attention of 
your classical readers to a very 
important Question relating to the me- 
chanism oi the Greek language. It 
is this. Are we not erroneously taught 
in our schools to conjugate the Greek 
Tcrb with two aorists, two futures, and 
the tense called the perfect middle? 
From the best consiueration I have 
been able to give the subject, I cer- 
tainly do roost decidedly maintain the 
affirmative of this question : if I am 
wrong in so doing, I shall be obliged 
to any of your readers who will take 
the trouble to point out oiy error, and 
in the mean time I will mention some 
of the reasons of my present opinion. 

I contend explicitly thqt the regular 
Greek verb has but one future, one 
aorist, and no such tense as that called , 
the perfect middle: I maintain that 
our common grammars exhibit in re- 
spect to these tenses a system of fie* 
tion, to which I know no nearer pa- 
rallel than the gibberish of the law- 
yers, when they begin to talk about 
John Doe and Richard Roe. 

Now, Sir, for the reasons of this, as 
some may think, bold, but I trust not 
unwarranted assertion. What, let me 
ask, is required in order properly to 
constitute a distinct tense? I antici- 
pate the concurrence of your readers 
in replying: "two things; 1. a difr. 
tinct form ; 2. a distinct meaning or 
force." I shall proceed to show that 
io iheBt imaginBTy tenses of the Graek 
rerd behoga uehher the one nor ihe 

other of these requisitei ; and if I can 
do that, I think joa wiH agree with 
me, that it is high time that they 
should be banished from our gram- 

Generally speaking, Greek verbs 
have only one form of the future and 
aorist, and none of the so-called per- 
fect middle. It is impossible directly 
to prove a negative; out if any one 
believes that the active Greek verb 
uses two futures, the one baryton and 
the other perisp6men, as our grammars 
tell us, let him pull out his books and 
search for an instance : and though I 
do not say that no such instance can 
be found m the compass of Greek lite- 
rature, I do say tnat they will be 
found so very few and far between, 
that he will be convinced that they 
form no part of the regular mechanism 
or furniture of the language, but are 
mere anomalous duplicates or redun- 
dancies of formation. But here I must 
guard against being misunderstood. 
There are undoubtedly two forms of 
the future active ; the one baryton, aa 
ru4^, the other perisp6mea« as xfiN*; 
this is obvious and indisputable. But 
my point is, that both these forma do 
not belong to one and the same verb ; 
and therefore that they are not two 
distinct tenses, but merely varieties in 
the mode of forming one and the same 
tense : in the same way as we have in 
Latin different forms of the future in 
the different coniugations, amabo, mo- 
nebot regam, aumam. 

The remarks above applied to the 
future active may with almost equal 
force be extended to the other tenses 
of which I have spoken. The only 
difference is, that in respect to these 
latter, duplicate formations are some* 
what more frequent, so that it would 
be much easier to produce instances in 
which they occur. Still I maintain, 
without fear of refutation, that they 
are merely the exception and not the 
rule ; ancf, therefore, that the error of 
our grammars is great and palpable, in 
representing them as the rule and not 
as the exception. Let us take, for ex- 
ample, the case of. the Jirst and second 
aorut so called. The vast mqforitu of 
Greek verbs have only what is called 
the first aorist, which ends in », as 
nv^: a considerable number, how- 
ever, use a different form, ending of, 
as Oiopof, which is catted the second 
aorist \ and a few verbs present both

it is exactly what boys are led

mine ; for my own part I believe there

put down perf. XfXufa, and this it ai 
much of Greek as the other. Next 
comes 9d aor, iXiirei. Very good ; ihi* 
is a real tense: it is not only the Sd 
aoriit, but the only aorist (hat any re- 
spectable wtilrr would use. Laitlj, 
and more pitiable than a wooden spoon 
at Cambridge, comes that ghost of a 
tense (he 2d future, \fsa, which is in- 
deed loo poor and harmless a ghost to 
deserve any exorcism ; it is the shadow 
of a shade. And while the lucklen

thumbing his grammar and lexicon in 
vain, lo furnish out all these non-enti- 
ties steundun artem, and contracting a 
growing despair of ever knowing ine 
Greek verbs, ihe tutor is pleasing

his boys are instructed, and their dex- 
letily in climbing up a Gretk tret ! I 
must just notice (hat while the gram- 
marians have so liberally enriched the 
active voice of this verb with these

of Phalarit Mgging his brazen bull 
t0 the onfortunaie critic, who was 
represented as exclaiming, '' I had ra- 
tker be roasted than JBoyied." Of all 
the attacks upon Bentley the only one 
DOW known dv its own merits is Swift's 
Battle of the Books; *' a piece/' saya 
Dr. Monk, *' exhibiting more than 
any other the original vem of humour 
which distinguished its author; and 
which continues to be read and ad- 
aiired by thousands who would hare 
tamed a deaf ear to the combined wit 
aad learning of Christ Church. Yet 
the greater part of the ridicule thrown 
out upon our critic, whose leading de- 
merits are represented to be tUtliness 
and haired of ike ancienia, is so re^ 
markably inapplicable, that no degree 
of humour less than Swift*s could 
make it palatable.'* 

Meanwhile Bentley remained calm 
under the pelting of this pitiless storm, 
relying upon the goodness of his cause, 
and a conviction that the public judg* 
ment, however strangely it may be 
ptrverted for a time, will at length 
come to a ri^ht decision upon every 
question. This self-command enabled 
Bentley to form al leisure a reply to 
Boyle, which by the concurring testi- 
mony of all scholars, is Quite unnvalled. 
'* The Boyleans (says Dr. Monk) had 
pursued a course calculated to display 
their adversary to the greatest advantage, 
and to raise to the highest pinnacle the 
rtpntation which they designed to over- 
turn. In their efforu to confute his 
reasonings about Phalaris, they had in- 
troduced a variety of new topics, which 
the writers from whence they drew 
their knowledge, had treated either er- 
roneously or slightly. They imposed 
upon Bentley the necessity of explain- 
ing and elucidating them; in doing 
which, he was able to develope stores 
of learning more abundant than either 
bis friencb hoped, or his enemies ap- 
prehended.'* In drawing up the an- 
swer, Bentley first satisfactorily refutes 
the bookseller's accusation by a com- 
parison of dates, and thoroughly dis- 
proves the other calumnies. 

On this work, which appeared in 
1690, Dr. Monk has the following 
able remarks. *< The appearance oT 
this work is to be considered an epoch 
not only in the life of Bentley, but in 
the history of literature. The victory 
obuined over his opponents, althougn 
the most complete that can be imagined, 
emisthutes mut m Bmall part of the 

merits of this perfonnance. Sueh is 
the author's address, that while every 
page is professedly controversial, there 
IS embodied in the work a quantity of 
accurate information relative to history, 
chronology, antiquities, philology, and 
criticism, which it would be difficult 
to match in any other volume. The 
cavils of the Boyleans had fortunately 
tooched opon so many topics, as to 
draw from their adversary a mass of 
teaming, none of which is misplaced 
or soperfloous : he contrives, with ad- 
mirable judgment, to ^ive the reader 
all the information which can be de- 
aired upon each question, while he 
never loecs sight of his main object. 
Profound and various as are the sources 
of his learning, every thing is so well 
arranged, and placed in so clear a view, 
that the student who is onlj in the 
elementary parts of classical literature, 
may perase the book with profit and 
pleasure, while the most learned can- 
not fail to find his knowledge enlarged. 
So well sustained is the learning, the 
wit, and the spirit of this production, 
that it is not possible to select particular 
parts as objects of admiration, without 
committing a sort of injustice to the 
rest. And the book itself will continue 
to be in the hands of all educated per- 
sons, as long as literature maintains ita 
station in society.** On the various, 
but ineffectual, attempts made by the 
confederates to fix on Bentley the 
charge of plagiarism, Dr. Monk truly 
remarks, that *' to this, critical scholars, 
from the natnre of their pursuits, are 
constantly exposed ; since no care can 
secure them from sometimes publish- 
ing remarks and conjectures, without 
being aware that they have already 
been made by others. Every candid 
person is slow to believe that such 
coincidences are the result of any thing 
but accident; and theft would be 
equally diahonourable and foolish, in a 
case where detection is sure, sooner or 
later, to ensue.*' 

Soon after the publication of this im- 
mortal Dissertation, Bentley lost his 
patron Bp. Stillingfleet, who, as Dr. 
Monk shows, died from long attacks 
of gout, which at length fixed upon his 
stomach, and no/, as it is commonly 
supposed, from his chagrin at being 
worsted in his controversy with Locke. 

Bentley was now left to enjoy the 
triumph of his learning and sagacity, 
to which even the most averse were 
compelled to pay homage : and, what

ttet of the propriety of these ordinances, 
however (says Dr. Monk), is, that 
ihey have been maintained, with some 
slight exception, up to the present 
time ; the only valid objection to them 
lieing that they were enacted by mo- 
narchical authority.'' 

Among other causes of Bentley's nn- 
foopularity was, that having no taste 
for hospitality on such a scale as soitcxi 
his di^ified station, he incurred the im^ 
(ratatton ofmeannesii and the expenses 
of the repairs of the Lodge occasioned 
much dispute between himself and the 
Seniors. In 1704 an attempt was 
made by the advocates for Phalaris to 
UEun make head against the Goliah of 
classioal Criticism $ and there appeared 
a work, supposed to be by Atterbuiy, 
intituled, ** A short review of the Con- 
troversy between Mr. Boyle and Dr. 
Bentley." On this Dr. Monk remaHis, 
that the style is caustic and polished, 
vet the general effect is feeble, being 
little more than a repetition of the cri- 
mination on Boyle^s book, softened 
down to an unwilling moderation. 
Not long after the Lodge was finished, 
Ur, ^Beiitley enjoyed the honour of re- 
coivmg there l^is Sovereign, Queen 
Anne, in April 1705, who held her 
CottTl at Trinity College. From his 
fint epmin^; to College, Bentlw lived 
pnaeifiB))y la a knot of telcct /riends, 
ekMB^f ICuster, S/kes, aad Brookbank. 

At this period he used to pass seversl 
OBonths of the year in London, attend- 
ing to his duties as Chaplain to the 
Queen, and Royal Librarian, in virtue 
of which office he had handsome 
apartments at Cotton House. Now he 
mixed in the highest circles, and his 
society was coorted bv the learned and 
the great. About this time Bentley 
addressed to Kuster, who was then 
editing Aristophanes, two Critical 
Epistles containing his observations on 
the Pluhis and the Clouds ; and in- 
tended to have proceeded with the 
other nine plays, out found that even 
those two were too late to be incorpo- 
rated into the Commentary. Dr. 
Monk observes, that *' these Epistles 
exhibit a most lively specimen of his 
acuteness and nice perception of the 
elegances of the Greek lansuage, and 
that had he given his mind to such a 
work, no person ever lived who was 
so well qualified for an Editor of Aris- 

About this time Bentley address- 
ed to Hemsterhuis (the founder of 
the most distinguished class of conti- 
nental scholam, and who afterwards 
attained to a rank second only to Bent- 
ley) a " Critical Epistle on Julius Pol- 
lux," which Hemsterhuis was then 
editing. This masteriy production ope^ 
rated so powerfully on the mind of the 
young Dutchman, that he determined 
to abandon his Greek studies alto- 

f;ether; until he reflected how unfair 
t were to compare his own iovenile 
performances with those of the most 
consummate Critic of the a^e. 

An increasing family now induced the 
Master to take three or four vouna men 
of rank as boarders at the Lodge. They, 
however, only continued one year, Benb- 
\ej finding that attention to them absorl>- 
efi too large a share of his literary leisure. 
It Was indeed little consistent with his 
dignity, and exposed htm to obloquy, 
as this addition to his family increased 
the consumption of bread, beer, fuel. 
Sec. which are supplied to a Master of 
Trinity by the College, without limita- 
tion. Dr. Bentley now made great 
exertions to raise the character and im« 
prove the buildings of his College, by 
building an Observatory, founoing a 
School of Natural Philosophy, and re<* 
pairing and refitting the Chapel upon 
a magnificent plan. The execution, 
however; of these works, brought much 
distress on the Fellows, which contt* 
nued for several years. This extra^r- 
dioary cbargi^ upon vVit College led the 

Bp. Monk't Lift of Dr. Bealley.

observes, that " we should scarcely 
believe it lo be by (he writer who has 
ten years before tritimphed over the 
combined wits of Christ Church, and 
the reason Is, that his came was not 
jiiil.'' " Notwithstanding," says Dr. 
Monk, "ils powerful and poimeid i«n< 
tences, its general effect is 10 rniso a 
prejudice against the author. The tone 
15 not that of an innocent person un- 
justly calumnislcd, but of a daring ad- 
venary, more intent on carrying war 
into 1)10 enemy's lerriioriea than or 
defending himself." The publication 
produoetfa hoit of replies from the 
College, which with exas|>eraied feel-. 
ings rebutted the sccusatloDs of th« 
Master by attacks sustained with much 
scholarlike writing, and no ordinary 
powers of wit and lailkry, chiefly esi 
ercised on the auamlneiiei of Beniley '• 
writings, and llie occmional ruggednest 
of his style. These extraordinaty dis- 
putes excited a great aentation in tho 
public mind, and all fiicnds of ihe 
University and of the Church wera 
shocked at proceedings so deiogalAry 
alike to academical dignity and to eCi

During the progress of this feud, 
Beiitley was enabled so fur lo abstract

son may be su|>po8ed to commit.'* 
In his *' Emendations'* (published in 
1700), Bemley exposes the gross ig-. 
ooraoce of the writer with the keenest 
irony, giving at the same time his own 
corrections, conceived in his happiest 
style, and generally irrefragable. Tiie 
work was (Tike most of his productions) 
written ex tempofe. What were the 
motives which induced Bentley to un- 
dertake this work, we cannot ascertain. 
Probably some literary grudge eiiter- 
taiued against LeClerc, in the exercise 
of his office as Reviewer, was the chief. 
got intelligence (secretly as the work 
was conducted) of the birch which waa 
in tteep for him» and of the Xf?^ 
ira;^i7av which was to wield it; ad- 
dressed a menacing letter to Bentley, 
Calling upon him to ** clear himself of 
the charge,'' adding that ** silence 
would be construed into a confession,*' 
To this our critic returned an answer, 
in his clear, powerful, and caustic style, 
which Le Clerc perhaps found more 
difficult to endure than the public cas- 
ligation which followed. Being un- 
able to defend himself against the stric- 
tures of Bentley, Le Clerc looked round 
for assistance, and found it from the 
learned Bergler and the foul-mouthed 
Pauw ; the former of whom, in the 
*' Acta Eruditorum," glossed over the 
defects of Le Clerc. The latter put 
forth a violently abusive work, intituled 
" Philarg^rii Cantab. Emeudationes in 
Menandn et Philemonis reliqoias.*' 
" A performance (says Dr. Monk) so 
worthless, and in a style so disgusting 
and ^execrable, that scarcely any one 
can read three pages of it.'* 

After long delays on the part of thtf 
Mniors of Trinity (as large bodies, and 
especially aged ones, are slow in mo- 
tion,) an accusation was presented in 
form, signed by a decided maiority of 
the fellows. " Of the articles (says 
Dr. Monk) some were frivolous, others 
unfounded ; yet more contained charges 
of neglifTcnce, which, though culpable, 
called for admonition rather than ex- 

that when, on m certain occaaion, the writer 
of this article discutseU confidentially the 
question of Le Clerc'a literary character^ 
with the late Dr. Samuel Parr, at hii owa 
house, a few years before his death, he de- 
clared that he thought Le Clerc had been 
hardly dealt with by Bentley in his Phile- 
lautheras Liptientis { and ba ended by de-

ihe articles to the Masterv who took, 
no notice of them. After three montha 
delay, and vain endeavours to break 
the confederacy of the Fellows by sow-c 
iog diksensions, Bentley attempted to 
procure the interposition of the Crown 
m his favour^ by the promulgation of 
a Uoyal letter. Upon the Bishop*s ot 
length demanding an answer to the 
articles, Bentley politically petitioned 
the Queen against his lurisdiction, 
and maintaining that her Majesty waa 
the real visitor of the Colkge, threw 
himself on the Ro}'al protection ; and 
the Ministry being inclined lo take the 
Master's view of the subject, wrote to 
Bp. Moore desiring htm to stay all 
further proceedings in the business, 
until the Crown lawyers had come to 
a decision on the subject. 

In 171), after various delays, occa<^ 
stoned by the peculiar state of his af- 
fairs, Bentley sent forth his long-pro- 
mised edition of Horace, dedicated to 
the Earl of Oxford. Dr. Monk thinks 
there is reason to suppose that in Jive 
fROfiMi«nfier his return from London, in 
June 1711 (after having prepared, dur- 
ing nine months' Town residence, for 
the struggle which was to decide his 
fortune), Bentley wrote the greater 
part of his notes on Horace. The pre- 
face to the work was couched in terms 
of greater arrogance and boasting than 
ever. The work itself excited consi- 
derable sensation, especially as there 
were 700 or 800 alterations of the com- 
mon readings, and all (contrary to cus- 
tom) received into the text, notwith- 
standing that most of them were mere 
conjectures of his own, though always 
plausible, often ingenious, and not 
unfrequenily convincing. The opinion 
of the very learned Biographer, which 
is en li tied to much attention, is as 
follows. " Many of his changes are 
unnecessary, others har&h and impro-« 
bable. He shows a pro|}ensity to con- 
fine the limits of poetical license too 
closely, and thus to reduce the lan- 
guage of Horace into prose. But when 
he defends his corrections by analogy, 
he brings forth the riches of his learn- 
ing as from an inexhaubiible mine : 
and the reader, whether convinced or 
not, respecting the particular point 
under discussion, is sure to Bnd his 
knowledge increased ; and hence it 
will be observed that the very errors of 
Benlley are instructive.'* The great 
fault of the Notes is the arrogance,

puny sophistry on repealed religion. He 
lakes to pieces (coniinuei Dr. M.) the

of tarioiii readings in the Scripture*

so ihat (says Dr. Monk) there have 
been no cnvilt founded on the varia- 
lion of MSS, which may not be found 
answered in the pages of I'liilclcuthe- 
ru9. The applause obtained by Bent- 
ley for this perfonnance was great and 
unitersal, il receiving the united thanks 
of the wliole bench of Bishops. It it 
lo be lamented, however, that Bentley 
was called off from finiihing his rcfu- 
laiion of Freethinking ptlnciplei by 
the attention which he was obliged to 
devote to the concerns of ihc College 
prosecution. Ail obstacles 10 the ex- 
ercise of his fuQciions being removed, 
the Bishop of Ely demanded the Ma»-

Bentley now «vailM himself of 
ihe alteration of circamttancee, pro- 
duced by this uncipected event, to 
come to a reoooeiliatioo with his FtU 
lows, agreeing to abandon his system 
qX compensaiioni but unfortunately no(

sity was in oeneral so sensible of his 
distioguiibed merits, thai it was re< 
eolred to return him its public thanka 
far his Answers to Collins; which 
was done emphatically, and nem, cpit. 
At this time the flames of rebellion 
had broken out in Scotland and the 
north of England, and e civil war waa 
undertaken, to place a Popish Monarch 
on ibe throne, when Dr. Bentley deli« 
vered oo the 6th of November at Cam* 
bridge bit celebrated ''Sermon on 
Popery, his te&t being 2 Cor. iL 17, 
Ov yctp Sr/uuy if o2 «iXXol, xoMmXivoyTfff

to mean ** irqficktng in the Word of 
God for their own mcrei' so applica* 
cable to the spirit of Popery, whose 
various institutions tend chiefly to that 
eflKect. In this most masterly production 
Bentley quite unmasks the system of 
Flipal imposture, with e^ual learning 
ana argument, though in language 
plain as the reasoning is forcible i till, 
gtvdually rising into warmth, **indig' 
naHo facii virntmt** and he pours 
forth a strain of eloquence almost unri- 
valled. Of this Dr. Monk gives an 
extract, and observes that '*the con- 
cluding and finest part has been pur- 
loined by the sentimental plagiarist in 
his sermonof Trim inTrtstramShandy.'* 
Bentley now again began, unfortu- 
nately, to carry his measures at College 
in the style of an irresponsible auto- 
crat, and attempted to dispose of the 
College livings afler his own views. 
This oaused the Fellows to a^in seek 
redress by a petition to his Majestv. In 
1716 Bentley formed a plan for publish- 
ing a new edition of the Greek Testa- 
ment, in which the text should be re- 
stored with certainty in a method never 
yet attempted. And though his hours 
of study were devoted to the prepara- 
tions for this roifthty work, which was 
first suggested to him by Wetstein (who 
aflerwerds himself accomplished it, 
^rhap§ more eJaborateJr,) yet he me- 
J^teJ soother and wtdeiy dffiecent 

work, tm etUtum ^CUsfictU Authors 
in Usum Prinetpff JPMerici, in imiu- 
tion of the Greek collection sn umm 
Dslphim, but meant to eclipse it in 
critical acGuncy« That soheme, how*- 
ever, was never carried into effect, 
owing to some misunderstanding as to 
the terms of his engagement, and the 
mode of remurteration. 

In 1717 Bentley experienced a vira* 
lent attack from Richard Johnson 
(Master of Nottingham School, and 
author of Noctes Nottinghamicee, 
Grammatical Commentaries, &c.) in 
aome strictures on his Horace, en- 
titled ^' Aristarchua Anti-Bentleianus." 
Hia censures, like Kerr's, were chiefly 
directed at errors in Latinity ; and hia 
accurate knowledge of the Latin lan- 
guage enabled him fully to act the cen« 
sor in detecting minute errors of coin 
struction ; and no mercy does the stern 
pedagogue show— but scourges his vic<» 
tim with the *' full strength of his right 
arm," and heaps terms of reproach and 
contumely, like a splenetic schoolmas- 
ter on blundering bovsl Although 
not a few of Johnson s strictures are 
well founded, yet the work failed to 
produce any such eSiect as the writer 
inteiided, being little noticed 1^ tho 
public, and quite unheeded by the 
object of hia antipathy, which perhapa 
occasioned the menul alienation that 
led to suicide. 

In the year 1717 Dr. Bentley wat 
ejected to the exalted post of Re- 
gius Professor of Divinity, the most 
valuable as well as moat dignified of- 
fice in the University. Our only re- 
gret is, that the attainment of a station 
which he waa admirably qualified to 
fill, was effected, (as Dr. Monk's re- 
searches ascertain,) by manoeunre and 
stratagem. His probationary PreteC" 
tion was on the authenticity of the 
disputed heavenly witnesses in 1 John. 
The composition has unaccountably 
been lost, though it was seen by Per- 
son in his younger davs, and by Dr, 
Vincent, the learned Dean of VVest- 
^ minster. Its contents, however, are col- 
lected with certaiuty byour Biographer. 
Beptley, it appears, gave a regular his- 
tory of the verse, and an account of 
the manner sn which the pasaage of 
$i. John is quoted by ancient writers } 
and concluded with a decided r^ec- 
tivn qf the verse; maintaining at the 
sanrie time the doctrine of the Trini^ 
in ills orthodox acceplatkifi, and show^ 
ins that it stands in do need of such 
dubiovAinp^i. .

Another general Parliament was 
called for S3 July, 131S. The per- 
sons cited were, 

<< Bishops -81, AbboU, &c. 58, Peers 60." 
To this record is annexed the list of 
Jodfl^es, and *' Clerici de consilio.'' 

This Parliament was again prorogued 
.•till SO Aug. 1312, and then were sum- 

'< Bishops SI, Abbots, &c. 55, Peers 53." 

The summons for the 18th March* 
.1313, is addressed to 

<< Bishops 90, Abbots, &c. 49, Peers 97." 

That for the 8th July, 1313, to 

<* Bishops 17, and the Costos of CaaUr- 
bury vacant 1 , Abbots, &c. 50, Peers 9^*" 

On the 23d Sept. 1313, another Par- 
liament was summoned (to which is 
annexed safe conduct for certain Earls 
and Barons, provided thejr came un- 
armed), and tne summons is addressed 
to . 
« Bishops 19, AbboU, &c. 50, Peers 1 1 1." 

For the Parliament of 21 April,1314, 
were summoned, 

<* Bishops (or their representatives) 18, 
Abbots, &c. 44, Peers 98." 

In the writ for postponing this Par- 
liament, in order to proceed against the 
Scots, we find added Rob, de Umfir^m- 
vt//. Earl f^ Angus, whose name is not 
included in the original summons. 

We shall now summarily state the 
'several Parliaments and numbers of 
Peers summoned. 

'9 Sept. 1314. Bishops IQ, Abbots 48, 
Peers 110, but the Jud^s and Mas- 
ters in Chancery are mixed up with 
the list. 

20 Jan. 1315. Bishops 1Q, Abbots, &c. 
48. Peers QS. Here the list of Judges, 
jtc. is distinct. 

27 Jan. 1316. Bishops IQ, Abbots, 
&c. 48, Peers g5^ Judges, &c. dis- 

6 Odt. 1320. Bishops 21, Abbots 31, 

Peers 84. 
15 July, 1321. Bishops ig. Abbots, 

&c. 54, Peers 99. 
2 May, 1322. Bishops I9, Abbots, &c. 

54, Peers 81. 
14 Nov. 1322. Bishops 21, Abbots 

31, Peers 62. 

20 Oct. 1324. Here occurs a Trac- 
talus only; for the writ names only 
** Colloquium et Tractatum," and not 
a Parliament also (see p. 31? acq); 
whereas in p. 334, two years after- 
wards, Parliamenla, Colloquium, ei 
Tracialus, are mentioned in the writ, 
as to be held at the same time. But 
there certainly was a distinction be- 
tween a Tractatus and a Parliament, 
and one most clearly prominent, viz. 
that in a Tractatus no burgesses were 
elected, only two knights for every 
shire (see p. 319 seq.) whereas in a 
Parliament it was indispensable to 
unite burgesses. A Tractatus appears, 
according to Ducange, to have been a 
term appropriated to the councils of 
Bishops. A Tracutus here has the 
aspect of a packed Parliament, for 
there were summoned only Bishops 1 9, 
Abbots, &c. 8, Peers 56. 

3 March, 1325, a Tractatus only. 
Bishops 17» AbboU 23, Peers 59. 

15 April, 1325, (a prorogation). Bi- 
shops and Abbots, as before. Peers 4Q. 

25 June, 1325, a Parliament. Bi- 
shops 17, Abbots 31, Peers 44. 

18 Nov. 1325, Bishops 19, Abbots 
31, Peers 44. 

13 Oct. 1326. A writ for a Collo- 
guy and Tractate, addressed to the 
Archbishop of Canterbury, ** cum ^ut- 
lusdam (some) Prelates, Magnates, and 
Proceres."— p. 349.** 

We shall now try to illustrate these 
matters. There were partial and ge- 
neral Parliaments. To the latter the 
whole of 4he nobility were soromoned ; 
but only upon occasions of great emer-

Rob. dc Unifravill, Earl of Angus, and 
John de Bretagne, Earl of RicTiinond, 
were only occasionally summoned ;

ng*, vit. abuses. At the same time, 
il Patliamrniary duty was rather 
onus than a gratilicBiian, 

inc Aing s name was used sometimes 
in a most irreverent manner. Rob. dc 
Winchelsee, Archbishop of Canter- 
bury (says Stephen Birchingion), re- 
proiied the King in his P.ir1iainenls and 
Councils (Angl. Sacr. i. 17) ; and be- 
cause lie, the Archbishop, had refused 

clergy, he was (exiTa-poiitui) put out 
of the King's favour, peace, and pro- 
tection. (Id. p. 14.) Now in acjuar- 
rel between a great man and an infe- 
rior, the former never succumbs, but 
from interest, necessity, or contempt ; 
but the clerey contrived lo defy the 
Sovereign, through opposing tu him 
the Pope, who in point of fact was ihe 
preserver of the Church property, and 
the paiion and benefactor of the cleri- 
cal order. It is very true that his bulls 
were not cannon-shot, but they were 
ghoslswhich commanded away IhiDush 
terror. The clergy of thoie days could 
Duly be taxed in convocations; and it

Lwd been a great seijeent, woidd the

few great lawyers whose minds are not wholly 
warped by their habits of thinking, and who 
do not Judge of human nature more by cases 
and prece£nts, than by any intimate con- 
fersancy with the human heart, and with 
eooiety at laige. And thus it is, on the re**

low men."-— ill. 77. 

or Loud, it is neediest to say more 
than that he was only a blacksmith in 
ttatenianship. The whole of his official 
conduct consisted in hammering. 

VI. Private Life of Charlesihe First, 
Love of the Arts. If, says Mr. Dis- 
raeli (p. 101), there be no love of the 
arts, the mind will not be moulded by 
the Graces, and serious mischiefs, con- 
sequent upon barbarism, will flow 
from vulgar minds. 

** Among the list of the grievances of 
the Commons in 1685, we find one com- 
plaining of the building of all houses in 
London, in one uniform wav> with a face of 
brick towards the streets. To this grievance 
Charles replied, that a refprmation in build- 
inffs was a good reformation, and he was re- 
solved to proceed with Uiat work. No 
doubt the good citisens of London were 
then destitute of any architectural taste ; 
since even the decent appearance of bricking 
their fronts, and improving the salubrity of 
the city — where wooden houses were huddled 
together in all inconvenient forms, nests for 
their scourge the plague, which was so 
oflen breathing in their faces — was consider- 
ed as a national grievance. 

" It was now still worse at London than 
at Edinbufgh. Among the barbarians, who, 
like a second irruption of the Goths and 
Vandals, became those of England, the 
avowed enemies of art and artists— the Pu- 
ritans on one side, and the Levellers on the 
other^ excite our indignation as much for 
their brutalizing ignorance, as their ca- 
lumnies. Among the vulgar spirits, it is 
painful to add Muton. He reproached the 
King for admiring and reading Shalapeare." 

There is oo philosophical truth better 
established, than that the Sectaries of 
the Reformation have impeded uni- 
formly the progress of the arts. With- 
out luxury there can be no civiliza- 
tion ; and if Christianity be the reli- 
gion of Puritanism, it must be the re- 
ligion only of Barbarism, for austerity 
cannot predominate where there is not 
poverty. The nation was not ripe for 
the aru^ because it was not sufficiently 
msd, aad consequently not fufficientJy 

InzoriouB. There are three or ratller 
four stages of society, the honting, the 
pastoral, the agricultural, and the com- 
mercial. The agricultural was the 
stage, which chiefly characterized the 
sera ; and the latter only existed in the 
humble form of mere mechanics, who 
supplied humble wants. Agricultural 
avocations are unfavourable to abstrac- 
tiou and intellectuality. Newton would 
have only been a mole-catcher^ with a 
new trap; Watt, with his steam, an 
itinerant conjuror; Locke a fortune- 
teller ; and Hippocrates a qoack-doctor, 
if they had had to depend only upon the 
patronage of farmers. No art or science 
will be cultivated before it becomes a 
mode of subsistence, and it will not be- 
come a mode of subsistence until luxury 
is general ; and that again is dependent 
npon the diffusion of wealth. No- 
thing can more clearly exhibit the sa- 
▼ageoessof English habits at the time, 
than that at the trial of Strafford the 
members of the House of Commons 
carried bread and cheese in their 
pockets, and ate it in their hands, 
while they handed the bottle from 
mouth to mouth, without a cup or 
glass. Such were the sava^ by whom 
the refined Charles was tried and mur- 

VII. The influence of the Queen on 
the Kins*s conduct. Henrietta was a 
volatile French girl, and Mr. D'lsraell 
proves, that she had neither a taste for 
politics, nor exercised any business in- 

VIII. The Percy family. A most 
disgusting picture of duplicity and 

IX. The Coronation in Scotland. 
The Five le Roi of poor Louis Seize, 
when he left Versailles for the capiul. 
Caloin had been crowned King of 
Scotland Ions before ; or rather he was 
the Pope of the Reformation, and acted 
the same part, and did the same things 
in another form. 

X. to XIV. The Critical History of 
the Puritans. Philosophers do not 
think that the Almighty is honoured, 
by being characterized as a mere stiff 
dissenter; but thousands thought so 
during the reign of Charles the First, 
and still continue to think so. No 
persons interfere so much in the aflairs 
of the Omnipotent as the uneducated 
and vulgar, as no persons are so critical 
in the affairs of their masters and mis- 
tresses, as the lowest domestics. But 
Mi. DlsTaeli't History is too valuable

Ckrman Merino breed is somewhere about 
two and a ha\f to three pounds ; whilst that 
of a fitt Leicester sheep is from eight to nine 
powtdit and the case m Germany, France, 
and Poland, differs m so far from that of 
England, as they are neidier of them aocns- 
tomed to fi^tten their sheep for the bntoher." 
—p. 191. 

We have read that Merino sheep 
may be fattened, but we made the ex- 
periment with full grass, and failed. 
It IS however plain, that we have both 
/as/cA cry and much wool, though it 

may he of low price. We are glad in 
consolation to hear, that 

« The climate and food of New South

cultivation does elsewhere." — ^p. 186. 

IX. Music made easy. We do not 
understand how any thing can be made 
easy, which requires perpetual practice 
andf great skill. As to modern music, 
Stentor appears to be more the god of 
it than Apollo. The gurgling murmur 
of air and melody is sacrificed for the 
roar of a cataract; the soft for the 
boisterous ; and bellowing for talking, 
as if all auditors were deaf. Wind in- 
struments (says our critic, p. 213} 
chiefly ^ive the colouring in orchestra 
compositions, but they are in general 
played too loud. Amateurs and per- 
formers will find much instruction in 
this excellent article. 

Why music is not so successfully 
cultivated in this as other countries, 
the Reviewer thus explains : 

« If Bngjand were but once again a cheap 
country to live in, we should see more fre- 
c^uently the results of the industry, the pa- 
tience, and taste of her inhabitants. A 
reasonable leisure musters! be put in the 
power of that people, and it would be then 
easy to make the diffusion of musical linow- 
kdge more than keep pace with the success 
of mechanic institutes, —-p. 199. 

According to Mr. Bowles, there is 
no original English music but the old 
Hundredth Psalm. 

X. Fontaniers Travels in Asiatic 
Turkey, Slavery is mentioned in the 
Bible without reprobation, because 
otherwise there would have been no 
civilization. Without cheap labour, 
there would have been neither riches 
nor leisure, and in thinly peopled coun- 
tries, where there exists a great dispro- 
portion between the demand and sup- 
ply of labour, had it not been for 
slavery, masters would never have been 
more than little farmers, scarcely able 
to read^-certainly not fit to be mem- 
bers of civilized society (see Letter from 
Sidney, p. 35. Certain it is, that the 
acts of Providence, and the notions of 
Sectaries concerning slavery, have not 
harmonized; for had there never been 
any slaves, there would never have 
been any masters. Domestic slavery 
is of a gentle kind, but never produces 
distinguished persons, because it is not 
productive of riches. Carrying^ off a 
damsel or two, is mentioned m the 
song of Deborah, and we shall extract

of them learn to read and write. They go 
to the same school up to the ag« of eight 
or nine yean. Their education at home is 
very nearly the tame as for the male sex. 
From their earliest vouth nothing is con* 
coaled from them which relates to the du- 
ties of a woman. This method has doubt- 
less the grave inconvenience of introducing 
hito conversation a license of which we can 
form no idea. Women of the town would 
be ashamed in Europe to make use of the 
terms which giils in Asia eropby in the 
ordinary course of conversation. This is 
only, however, license of expression, and is 
not inconsistent with true modesty. Such 
is education in Turkey and Persia." — p.S95. 

In p. 834, we find a poor priest, who 
had been often bastinadoed, saying, 
** look at my feet, I have not a nail 
upon my toes, they have all dropped 
off under the stick.'* A log of wood 
has a cord attached for binding the 
feet during the punishment. — p. 239. 

Among the minor articles we find 
the following curious and hitherto un- 
known information concerning the 
constituent parts of Gothic architec- 
ture. The name of tbe work from 
which it is extracted is entitled 
**Antichita Romantiche d'ltalia/' 
compiled by the two cousins Sacchi. 
The particular portion, to which we 
allude, is church architecture, and the 
well-known symbol of the " Vesica 
Piscis," seems to have originated 
through the following causes : 

<* Our authors then proceed to speak of 
the churches raised under the dommion of 
'the Longobards in the nortk of Italy, and 
give a full description of the principal ones. 
They then treat of the symbolic art among 
tbe early Christians, which they define as 
the represetUaiions of dogmas, mysteries, and 
reiigious truths, by means t^f determinate 
firms, imagesy and cyphers, in the architec- 
ture of their churches; a sort of mystic 
science, which the initiated alone under- 
stood. This science was divided into her- 
metic and orphic ; the first referring to the 
plan and shape of the church, the number 
of angles and faces it itresented, and Uie 
second| or orphic, consisting in ,the orna- 
ments and other accessories, regulating the 
colour and quality of the materials employ- 
ed, the disposition of the cyphers or mono- 
grams sculptured over the gates and other 
parts of the building, the figures of animals, 
and other sculptural omamenu, all having a 
mystical meaning. And the authors quote 
repeatedly the epistles * De Angelici Hie- 
rarchic,* and «De Theologift Symbolicl,' 
attributed to S. Dionysius Areopagita, but 
which in fact were written by the Bishop 

Syaasiai, who lived ia the filth century. 
Ine whole of this chapter (pp. 138—176) 
is full of curious and mteresting investiga- 
tions." — p. 854. 

We have another important acces- 
sion in p. 273 : 

'* Lithography has flourbhed from time 
immemorial in the principal city of Tibet, 
and has been employed in delineating in 
for^ plates the anatomy of the various parts 
of the huflsan body." 

No persons are more likely to know 
less of what passes at home than those 
whose researches are abroad. We al- 
lude to a paragraph in p. S60, where 
the elegant work on Autographs, by 
Mr. J. G. Nichols, is ascribea to his 
father "Mr. Bowyer Nichols;*' and 
stated as being, though complete, un- 
finished. Such mistakes should be 
avoided, because they induce a sus- 
picion of carelessness in research, or 
mdilFerence as to statement, where 
facts are concerned. Authors should 
borrow a lesson here from lawyers and 
wise men ; not subject themselves even 
to suspicions. Caesar*s wife ought not» 

It is impossible that any one whose 
researches are limited to his country, 
can be so serviceable as those who tell 
us what genius, science, or ex|)edience, 
efllect in other regions. If one nation 
borrows from another, this allegation 
is established. It is sufficient, there- 
forcy for us to say that no design is 
better qualified to promote sencral uti- 
lity, than this Review; ana that it has 
no other fault to be laid to it, than that 
it is too partial to continental imper- 
fection, where reason, pure taste, and 
strength of intellect are the standards 
of excellence.

the materialft which have been coUeeu

Fuller (Hist, of Cambridge, p. U4,) 
informs us, that Sir Thomas Smith, 
principal Secretary of State| was the 
father of this Act, and surprised many 
of the House of Commoas, who did 
not see that there was any dificrcnce 
whether the college received their 
rents in money or goods. But *' the 
politic Knight took advanta^ of the 
cheap year (1676-6). Knowmg here- 
after that grain would ^row dearer,

the prices of things which are exira*

Ma. MURRAY seems to liave a 
predilection for electricity; and no 
ardent lovers neglect their mistres^s. 
The only doubt is, whether they do 
not in general over-estimate their 
charms ; and sincere as is our declara- 
ration of the keenness and value of Mr. 
Murray's research, we onjy fear that 
in an iustaixu: or two he haa rather too 
much assumed the operation of elec- 
tcicity aa th« instigating cause of soma 
phenomena. At the same time wa 
j/# satisfied that the whole eiUMit of 
Mf ^Sefiemy /> aoi known, ami thai 

his assigned causes may be true, al* 
though they are not clearly proved. 
Bat we feel no inclination to expatiate 
on the subject, and think it oi some ^ 
importance to lay before our readers 
the novel subject of parasreles, con- 
geners of conducting ro£, but far 
more efficient, Mr. Murray thinks, in 
loeal protection. 

From the injury done to corn and 
vines by hail, paragreles are exten- 
sively used in Italy, Switaerlaod, and 
France, In their original form they 
consisted of poles, surmounted with a 
point of brass, from the lower extre- 
mity of which proceeded, as a con- 
ductor, a straw rope, with a strong 
linen thread twisted throughout its 
extent. It has been improved, and is 
represented in the frontispiece. But 
we are further told, that Pinnanzi of 
Mantua, as early as 1788, proposed ilie 
erection of numeroua metallic points 
in the Belda, for the purpose of de- 
prirtng the clouds of tnelr electricity^ 
and thus preventing their resolution 
into harl. Afterwards M. L'Apostolle 
of Geneva endeavoured to modify 

"The erection! proposed by Pionaasi, 
by (he sabsiifeution of straw roues ooly \ but 
these were found to be insufScient, and had 
ftUea inlo dneredia and oblivion, when 
Moaa. Tollaid of the CoUage of Tarbet in 
Fraoca, in the dapartmant of the High Py^ 
rannees, revived toaa in a modified form ; 
his plan was to erect poles of willow, pop- 
lar, pine, chesnut, &c. armed with sharpen- 
ed brass pointa, attached to a rope formed 
of ripe barley or rye-straw twisted through- 
out, and contended tbat he had thus suc- 
ceeded in securing a territory of ten eom- 
unmcr." — p. IS I. 

The efficacy of them having been 
controverted, the following testimo- 
nies among others have been adduced 
in their favour : 

" Sign. Perotti of Sao Giovanni di Caa- 
sara, having plstitad paragreles on an extent 
uf 16,000 perches, found that hia com fields 
and vineyards had sustaiaed no damage, 
though fiurleen storms bad passed over 
them, and fell in full fury on the neighbour- 
ing lands.'* 

** By order of the Sanl'nian Govemment^ 
1467, paragreles were placed near Cham- 
bery, on a chain of mountains, from their 
base to their summit. On the 5th of Au- 
gust, 1895, a violent stoim took place, 
whicb extended exterior to the pale of the 
paragreles, bat no hall fell among them ; 
beyond their sphere, however, boSh hail 
aad thunder were abiiadBnl.'*-^p. 144.

UEViBW.^-Pickerlng on Emigration. 


for his two works are curious and in* 

ErmgnUion or no Emigration f being the 
. Narrative qf ike Author fan English 
FanmerJ Jrom the year 1894 to I8d0» 
during whieh time he traversed the United 
States of America and the British Province 
qf Canada^ with a view to settle as an 
Emigrant, By Joseph Pickerings late of 
Fenny Stratford^ Buckinghamshire, ISmo.. 
pp, 139. 

THE results of certain measures^ 
whatever may be abstractedly said in 
vindication of those measures, are cer- 
tainly those described in the following 
paragraph : 
• " Are there one half the number of pro- 

Iirieton and occupien of land now in £ng* 
and there were aO or 40 years ago ? Is it 
not a notorious hct, that Urge landed pro- 
prietors buy all the small farms and lots of 
land they can meet with ! I have known 
parishes that had forty or more small pro- 
prietors and occupiers of land, where now 
there is not more than one -third of that 
number; the remainder generally becoma 
labourarSf nearly their only resource, throw* 
inig an extra quantity of tne article of labour 
uto a market sufficiently supplied, and con- 
sequently depreciation its value below a just 
and equitable price, tne landholder and fund- 
holder reaping the benefit from the deprecia- 
tion. But it will be asked, why will farm- 
ers give a greater rent than they can afford? 
I answer^ because those fiiruers that still 
have a little money left must rent a farm at 
some price ; they cannot do any thing else t 
all other tndet and occupations are already 
overdone. 'J'be landlord is enabled to keep 
up his high rents by throwing three or four 
larnis into one, thereby creating a competi- 
tion, by reducing the number in the mar- 
ket; while, as I before said, two or three of 
these fisrmers must probably go to the pa- 
rish I the one that gets the enlarged fium 
will curtail his expenses to meet the high 
rent, by reducing the number of htbouwrs 
kept on the four farms ; thus he impove- 
rishes the farm, and that in return impo- 
verishes him, until perhaps in a. short time 
his resource also is in the same degraded 
station, the parish." 

Now it IS impossible that poor lands 
can be brought into foil production 
without a large stock, especially of 
sheep, and such a stock cannot be 
supported without a sufficient domain ; 
and if the system augments the num- 
ber of paupers, as Mi. Pickering pre- 
aomes, then, as he says, 'Emigration 
appears the only remedy in the hands 
<if those who may have sufficient mo- 
iMff to carry ihtm out of the influence 
*he erl/'^Htut of the country,^* 

This being a book of travels, we 
shall, according to our custom, make 
some amusing or instructive extracts. 

We generally apply the term Yankee 
to all Americans ; but its specific mean- 
ing beyond the Atlantic is a native of 
New England, and is synonymous with 
a Yorkshire bite in England. 

Old residents (it seems) do not mind 
the bite of the rattle-snake or copper- 
head, because many vegetable antidotes 
are well known in the woods, (p. 46.) 
Thus it seems that the study of medi- 
cal botany highly merits the public 
attention, and vindicates the Society 
which has been instituted for its en- 

It seems that 

** Oxen will drive any number of wolves, 
and even throw down the strongest fence, 
with a strange noise to get at them, when 
a calf or cow is attacked.'^ — p. 53. 

Every body has laughed at Mat- 
thews*s ludicrous exhibition of an 
American Militia training day. The 
truth is, that, except under iirospect 
of a war, it is "men-Iy a frolic" for 
the youngsters once a year. — p. 56. 

T'he method of road and canal mak- 
ing deserves notice for its cheapness 
and expedition. 

« With a kind of large shovel, having a. 
handle (called a scraper], and a yoke of 
oxen, the dirt is drawn into the centre, and 
rounded, which is called *' turnpiking." 
Four men and two yoke of oxen, one yoke 
and two men to plough, and the other to 
scrape, will do as much work in this way, 
wbere there are no obstructions, as fifteen 
or twenty men in the same time by the or- 
dinary way of digging." — p. 69. 

The Americans have some dirty 

** Some smart lasses came in during tlie 
evening, most of whom took a smoke with 
the landlord and the landlady, passing the 
short black pipe from one to another ! Dis- 
gusting as this practice is, it is not so much 
as one in common use in the eastern part of 
Maryland, of girls Uking a « rubber" of 
snuff — that is, taking as much snuff as will 
lie on the end of tbs forefinger out of a 
box, and rubbing it round the inside of the 
mouth."— p. 71. 

Concerning the importance of Ca- 
nada, as a check uix>n American am* 
bition, our author says, 

** At the commencement of the late war, 
the province was invaded by the Americana 
in great force, who had the choice of points 
of attack. They burnt several places ; and 
expected an easif coii(\ucs( from the unprt-

THIS amply retrieves the dullness 
and frivolity of the two previous vo- 
lumes. We have now Dr. Doddridge 
presented in his true character. A 
sound scholar and an accomplished 
divine, devoting heart and soul to the 
hiboors of his ministry, and dedicating 
his gjreat acouirements to the service m* 
religion: aoorning the doctrine he 
pfeached by holiness of life, and pre- 
siding over his pastoral charge wiih a 
ilfrnplicity of purpose, a singleness of 
h^art, and a fervour of anxious watch- 
fttlness, rarelv equalled, and never sur- 
passed. His letters are truly delightful \ 
to playfulness of fancy he unites so- 
briety of thought y the outpourings of 
an aflfectionate heart, and a devout 
spirit, are arrayed in language eleeant 
and chaste : while his epistolary style is 
classical and ** English undehfed." 
fiis deliverance from the thraldom of 
the flirts, whom he distinguished by 
his attentions in the former volunies, is 
refreshing to witness ^-tvhilst as a 
husband and a father he now presents 
a beautiful picture of that cenjugal 
love and parental tenderness which is 
founded on the solid basis of Chrisdan 
principles, cemented by perfect cooge- 
nialitj of tastes and sentiments, and 
sanctified by a consciousness of the 
high responsibilities appertaining to 
such sacred engaeemenls. His corre- 
spondence with Warburton and Clarke

maintained nith distinguished spirit and ta-

was it indeed till the sailing of the noble

Puk* of Orleant tnnounced that ha had ao« 
oeded to the withes of tht DepatieSf addioff 
that ha would place himself in the midst m 
the heroic people of Paris » and exert all his 
efforts to preserve them from the ill effects 
of anarch J and civil war. *< TlieChambersi" 
ha addedy '* are going to assemhle ; they 
will consider of the means of securing the 
reign of the laws, and the maintenance of 
the richts of the nation. The Charier uM 
hinerfartvard be a truth,** 

During this day the whole populatioa 
ware reposing after their victory, cheerfuly 
and ready for a new engagement. TUp 
atreetSy the quays, and tlie Boulevards, were 
unpaved here and there, and carefully barri- 
ceded. The balconies and terraces were filled 
with paving-stones. The citizens who were 
not at first furnished with arms, now had 
time to procure them, and were eagerly in* 
acribing their names in their respective 
vuroralties. The popular magistrates, io- 
jlailad by the Constitutional Committee, 
iumisfaed them with cartridges. On th^ 
■other hand, the military government was dis- 
heading, and its troops filled up the squares 
of the national guard. In this emergency^ 
Marshal Marmont consented Co take the 
command of such of the troops, including 
iha Swiss guards, as remaineid faithful to 
the King. A variety of movements were 
jnade to vtnnidate the populace, but with- 
out answering the purpose intended, the 
threats and acts of intimidation rather tend- 
ing to increase the popular ferment. Tlie 
next step taken by the general was to cut 
off from the capital the supply of provisions, 
and endeavour to starve the Parisians into 
subjeetioo. On the other hand, Laborde, 
at the bead of the national guards, was 
equally active in taking measures to coun- 
teract tliose of General Marmont. In the 
mean time, however, Chailes left St. Cloud 
with his suite in ten carriages. The 
4th regiment of royal guards, which was 
left nt 8t. Cloud to secure his retreat, was 
attacked by a multitude of the armed in- 
habitants of that town, the neigbbouriog 
conmuines, and the city of Paris. The na- 
tional party, under the command of three 
students of the Polytechnic school, tri- 
umphed; the royalists threw away their 
muskets, after carefully breaking the locks. 
The palace of St. Cloud was not pillaged, 
but the royal arms were everywhere defaced. 
At Versailles the people had taken up arms, 
disarmed the gardbf du corps, and forbidden 
the monarch to enter their gates. 

On Suurday the Chamber of Deputies 
met : M. Lafitte was president. A procla- 
mation by the Duke of Orleans was read, 
and 10,000 ordered to be printed. The oom- 
xnisaioo appointed to wait on his royal high- 
ness brought up their report by General 
Sebaatiani. The language oif the Duke, tbev 
Mut^ braaihgd )ove of order Ukd the laws, the 
4udtta$ duJjv oftpviDg Frsmce the scoui^e 

pf oivil and foreign war, tha wnh to make 
lite charter real. Tha Duka had proposed 
the immediate convocation of the Chambers* 
A manifesto, relating to tha provinces the 
events of the capital, and applauding with 
gratitude the exertions of the people, was 
agreed upon. Benjamiu Constant would 
submit the cuaraotees which he had pre- 
pared to convince the people of the purity of 
their Deputies, and their perfect freedom. 
The Deputies then resolved to go in a body 
to the Palais Royale, to wait on the Duke o( 
Orleans, and tkience, with the LieutenantT 
l^eneral of the kingdom, proceedad to the 
Hotel d« Ville, in order to qniet the doubt 
and agitation with which the public mind 
waa agonised. Lafitte, as president, read the 
proelsmation, which the Duke approved. 
11m Deputies were everywhere greeted with 
rapture and enthusiasm; but it waa with 
jnort intense delight and astonishment that 
tha people beheld the second proctssion^ 
with the Duke of Orleans, move to tha Ho* 
td de Ville. The Duke continued to show 
himself at the window, and to throw hit pror 
clamations among tiie crowd. 

On the 1st of August, Charles X. and his 
family passed through St. Pye, on tha way 
to Rambouillet. He loul his son were on horse^ 
hack, surrounded and followed by a garde 
du eorpe. The ministers were in tlieir car- 
riages. The guard was SOOO strong, with 
artillery. — On the 9d, Charles, in despair, 
retired to Rambouillet. Finding it Im- 
possible to retreat to La Vend^, he waa 
compelled to ask of the Provisional Govern- 
ment a sale conduct to the first sea- port, 
and offered to abdicate in favour of his grand- 
son tlte Duke de Bourdeaux. 

On Tuesday tlie 3d of August, the LieUf- 
tenaat-general of the kingdom opened the 
two Chambers with the followbg speech : 

*' Peers and Deputies — Paris, troubled in 
ita repose bv a deplorable violation of tha 
charter and tlie laws, defended them with he- 
roic courage ! In tlte midst of this sangnir 
nary struggle, all the gnaraotees of aodal 
order no longer subsisted. Persons, pro- 
perty, rights- eve r ything that b most v*- 
liutble and dear to men sind to citizens, was 
•xposed to the roost serious danger. In this 
abaence of all public power, the wishes of 
my fellow citizens turned towards me ; they 
have judged me worthy to concur with 
them in the salvation of the country ; they 
have invited me to exercise the functions of 
Lieutenant-general of jtbe kingdom. Their 
cause appeared to me to be just — the dan- 
gars immense— the necessity imperative — 
my duty sacred. I hastened to the midst of 
this valiant people, followed by my family, 
and. wearing those colours, which, for tlie 
second time, have marked among us the tri- 
umph of liberty.

OuATiMALA. — ^7*he city of Guatemala and 
ila envircms, in the re|niblic of Central 
America, has been destroyed by an earth- 
qnake. For five days there was a succession 
of the most frightful tremblings, which still 
continued at the departure of the mail, 
shaking to their fuundationi and prostrating 
to the earth the principal edifices, and com* 
palling the unfortunate inhabitonts to flee to 
the public squares and into the country, 
whore, to protect themselves from the 
weather, they had erected huts of palm-mats. 
The temples, which had already l>een robbed 
of their furniture and deprived of their mi- 
nisters (persecuted and iMnished), are ren- 
dered useless, particularly the l>eautiful 
church of St Francisco, which, on account 
of its size and pouden>us structure, has 
suffered most. The town of Amatitlan, a 
place of recreation in the vidnity, has licen 
totally destroyed. Guatemala was founded 
in 1594, on the declivity of a mountain, at 
whose summit was a volcano. In 1751 it 
was overwhelmed bv an eaithquake, and by 
matter from the viJcano. In 1775. having 
lieen partially rebuilt, it was again destroyed 
by an earthquake, and the greater part of 
the inhabitants buried in its niins. Its pre- 
sent site is about 25 miles south of the old 


By a command fr«>m his Majesty the 
fnllowing alterations are hereafter to take 
place in the Army:— The unifttrm of the 
Officers of the Regular Forces to be laced in 
g«ild. The Cavalry, with the exception of 
the Royal Horse Guards (Blue), to be 
dreaded in red. The mustachios of the 
Cavalry (excepting the Life Guanis, the 
Royal Harse Guftrcis, and the Hussars) to 
be abolished. The fi>ur regiments of Hiis- 
sara t«» he dressed perfrctly alike. 1'heir 
officers t4> have one drrs.i only, and that of 
a less costly pattern. The cap lines and 
tassels worn on the caps of the officers and 
men of the Infantry to be abitlished, and 
the feather of lioth <ifficer and aoldier to be 
ahortened. Tiie gorget to l)e alM>lished. 
The officers and men of the Light Infantry 
to wear a green tuft instead of a feather. 
The banda of Infantry regiments to be dressed 
in white clothing with the regimental facings. 
Tha aur upon the officer's epaulette to be 
that of the Order of the Bath, instead of tliat 
c/kA# On/fr of the Garter. 'Vhe ferjeaots of 

Infantry to be armed in future with fusils 
instead nf pikes. 

The activity of the King astonishes every 
bt>dy : he ap|)ears to inherit all the early 
and temperate habits of his father. He 
rises at six o'clock, at which hour the 
messengers from the different Government 
offices are ap|x)inted to be in attendnnce, 
when, with the assistance of Sir Herliert 
Taylor, he gets through the despatches with 
incredible celerity, and immediately fur- 
wards the messenjrers on their rrturn. On 
the 6'th inst the King and Queen went in 
state to the Tower of London, accompanied 
by the Duke of Sussex and Prince George 
of Cumberland. They were escorted by a 
deuchment of Life Guards throuqii the City 
to the Tower. The Duke of Welliugton aa 
Constable of the Tower, G.^neral I^iftus aa 
Lieutenant, Sir J. Doyle as Deputy, and 
Major Elringtima^ Fort Major of the Tower, 
received their Majesties. The Lord Mayor 
preceded the King on entering the Tower. 
Their Majesties and suite partook of a

Jmbf ao. Captain Moir wat tried at 
Cbclmtfbrd for the murder of William Mal- 
eo)m« afifthermaoi at Little Warnham, in 
Swex* on the 17th of last March, by shoot- 
isg hin with a pistol. It appeared that the 
deecMed was in the habit of trespassing on 
the grounds of the prisoner for the porpoM 
of fishing, notwithstanding repeated prohi- 
Mtione^ On one of these occasions the 

Cisoner became greatly exasperated, and 
nf lag procured a pistol fi^om his residence, 
iwd at the deceased i tiie shot brolce the 
mnu of the deceased, and he ultimately died 
§nm lock jaw. The prisoner in his de- 
§mm eaid he had been trained up to a mili- 
iHy life, and had sold out of the 87th 
wgiwent two years atfo. He accounted for 
kb piitole being loaded by saying tliat the 
oonatry round about his house was infested 
by a set of desperate characters, which ren- 
dered it necessary for him to to be prepared 
In meet them. The Jury returned a verdict 
of guilty, and he was executed on Monday 
the fid of August. Considerable interest 
wee made to procure a mitigation of Cap- 
tain Moir's sentence, and a petition signed 
by 1 1000 .persons was forwarded to tlie 
Secretary of State, but in vain.— Cap- 
tain Moir was a native of Forfiirshire, 
and highly retpeclable by birtli and con- 
nexions. He was brother-in-law to Sir 
James Gardner Baird, Bart. ; a near relative 
•a the veteran Sir David Balrd, the prede- 
cessor of the Duke of Wellington in the 
aommKnd of the peninsular army ; snd he 
was also first cousin ti> Sir William Rae, 
l^e present Lord Advocate for Scotkind. 
He was descended by his grandmother's side 
ffvkk tlw heroic Bruce, and was also con- 
nected with the distinguished ftmilies of 
Blah" of Blair, the Stewarts, and the Butes. 
For seventeen years he served successively 
in the 14th, 87th, and 40th regimenU of 
Foot, and in the connc of such service ho 
visited France, Spaing India, and An>eriea. 
la the latter place he married the daughter 
of' an ofBcier in the Artillery, by whom he 
had three fine boys. In the year 18)8, 
aeoompanied by his wife, he repaired with 
his regiment to Gibralur, and while there 
the yellow fever made its destructive ap- 
pearance. Moir was attacked by it, and 
suffered so severely that his life was long 
despaired of. His brain was considerably' 
affected, and he never had been perfectly 
free Uovtk its effects. In one of the pa- 
lysms caused by this malady during his 
ia Canada, he tooli an opportunity, 
wkea. alone, . of indicting several severe 
wounds with a hatchet upon his forehead/ 
tha scan of which were very prominent to 

the «Mt huCir of his Ufa. Tliia iaver pru-- 
dacfd the most disastruas inflaenae upon 
his character and conduct : his disposition, 
warm and irrascible before, but witlial gp.. 
nerous and humane, became through it so 
susceptible, that, if insulted, ot excited by 
ru|uor, his passions were uncontnillable, and 
his actions and language appeared to be* 
those of a madman. In tlie year 1898 
Capt. Moir retired from the army, and his 
aotive bnt unsteady mind turning its atten- 
tion to agricultural pursnita, Iw took upon 
lease the farm at Shellliaven Ciseek^ where he. 
was residing when the unhappy event oc- 
curred which has been the meana of termi- 
nating his life on a scaffold. 

Aug, 4. An explosion took place in tha 
Bensham Seam of Jarrow Colliery, oo. 
Durham, and tweuty-three men and savesi« 
teen boys were instantly deetroyed, and 
several others nuHre or less severely bun. 
Tha Coroner proceeded to iavaatagate the 
caose of this dreadful accident by holding 
an iaquett. On examining the east drift of 
tha nraae the cause of the accident uras ma- 
nifeat. The whole front of the drift was 
dataehad from the roof on the left side, as 
if the block of coal forming tlie faoe of the 
drift had been detached by a blast of gun- 
iiowder* A ragged aperture, of about nine 
inches wide, was lefl between the coal and 
the roof, and a fissure about tlie same width: 
torn out on the lefi hand side. On prub- 
iag these apertures as far as they could 
reach (about six feet at that time), they* 
found notliii^ but open space behind. It- 
then became quite dear that the miners had 
holed into an old wasta* and that the frac- 
ture waa occasioned by the elsstic force of 
what they termed a bag of foulness, which 
had beeu compreased in that species of na- 
tural gasonetec, and which had rushed off 
in an enormous qusntity, and fired at the 
first light with wliich it came in contact, 
Qunsuraing all the vital air In the small divi- 
sion beyond the stone drifts, and filling tlie 
workings with a dense smoke and after damp, 
and deranging tlie veutilating ap|Mhratus so 
much as to . cause the suffocation of the- 
people before the air-course could be restored. 

About two years ago it was observed, on 
the estata of tha Earl of Mansfield, near 
Stirling, that a seam of coal, at a ffreat 
depth below the aurfiioe» was on fire. Hav- 
ing tried various nwans of extinguishing the - 
fire without success, it was resolved to sur- . 
sdunditwith a tunnel and a strimg wall, 
within which it might burn iUelf o^t, buti 
Usyund which it oouki not extend. This 
plan has been persevered in for a year and a 
naif, but has not yet succeeded. Thework-- 
man have often brought the wall within a 
&w fiohoms of meeting, but the fire has 
always burst out on them, and com|ielled. 
them to take a larger circuit. Tly* heat in- 
the tunnel is frequantly 980 degreee. Last 
yoar, foi^r persons were entomhad. alive Iky. 
the falling in of a part of the tonnel.

In 1783 the Hun. William Harcourt 
was promuted to thn rank of Major-Ge- 
neral in the army. At the tame period 
he purchased St. Lieonard*! Hill of the 
Dukeof Glouettur, whereupon the Kinf 
appointed him Deputy Ranker of Wind- 
sor Great Park, the Duke of Gloueester 
at the same time being made Lieute- 
nant of Windsor Forest. 

In 1793 and 1794 this officer senred 
with the armv in Flanders, where be had 
the command of the cavalry, and whilst 
there was raised to the rank of Lieut.- 
General Oot. 1 in the former year. After 
the return uf the Duke of York to Eng- 
land, the command of the British troops 
devolred upon Lieut.-Gen. Harcourt. 

In 1795 he was appointed Governor of 
Hull; an«i was made a General in l?98. 

Oil the formation of the Royal Mili- 
fary ColIej;e at Sandhu'St in 1799 the 
Kin<; appointed General Harcourt the 
first Governor. He retained the post for 
nine years, when be resigned it for the 
Government of Portsmouth. 

Oil the death of his bruther April 20, 
1809, (when a long character of that no- 
bleman appeared in onr vol. LXXix. p. 
480,) Geueral Harcourt succeeded to his 
titles and estates; and was also appoint- 
ed his successor In the post of Master of 
the Horse to the Queen. Having re- 
tained that honourable office to the pe- 
riod of her Majesty's decease, he of course 
attended her funer^il in 1818 In that cha- 
racter. Always attached to the R^^I f^- 
^ily, at the funeral of George theTbird in 
1820 he walked at one of the AssistanU 
to the Chief Mourner the Duke of York. 

Earl Harcourt was invested with the 
insignia of a Grand Cross of the Batb, 
May 27, 1820. 

In the coronation procession of King 
GeOrge the Fourth in 1821, £;irl Har- 
court carried the Union Suiidard. In the 
^tieral promotiun in the army which 
Uore the date of that solemnity, the Mar- 
quess of Drogheda* and his Lordship, 
%ho «kere then the two senior Generals 
in the army, were elevated to the rank 
of Field-Marshal. With the exception 
of the Duke of Wellington, no other of- 
ficers out of the Royal Family had at- 
tained that high grade since 1796.t 

. * The Marquess of Drogbeda died 
Dee. 32, 1822 (see vol. xciii.L 83). He 
was nearly thirteen years older than Lord 
Harcourt ; and, bad be survived to the 
present time, would fkhre completed a 
century of years. 

} t Our new Monarch has, like his bro 
tber, made two Field- Marshals, in the 
persons of his two senior Generals, Sir 
'^^arcd Clarke and Sir Saviuel Hulse. 

On the Ist of JanaaiY 1827* Earl Har^ 
court was promoted from the govern- 
ment of Portsmouth to that of Plymouth, 
the latter being then vacated by the 
Duke of Wellington, on his Grace's suc- 
ceeding, by the death of the Marquis of 
Hastings, to the office of Constable of 
the Tower* 

On the 20tb of the same month, tba 
venerable Field-Marshal attracted parti- 
cular attention at the funeral of the 
Duke of York ; bearing on that occasion 
the baton of the deceased Commander- 

In the early part of the late King's 
illness his Lordship rode daily to Wind- 
sor Castle to make inquiries. He was 
himself destined to precede his Majesty 
to the grave, after about five days con- 
finement. His remains were interred 
with bis ancestors at Stanton Harcourt. 
Hts Lordship married, Sept. 3, 1778, 
Mary, widow of Thomas Lockhart, of 
Craig-house in Scotland, esq. aiid eldest 
daughter of the Rev. William Danby, 
D.D. of Farnley in Yorkshire. This lady 
survives, having never had any family. 
The Earl's estates chiefly devolve on 
his coubin the Archbishop of York. 
His will was proved on the 30th of 
July. He leaves to his widow the 
^ouse and estates at St. Leonard's- bill, 
and the interest of 80.000/. for life, and 
the Jewels, pictures, &c. in full property. 
After her death, the two first go to the 
Marquis and Marchioness d'Haroourt, in 
France. On their death, the capital is 
directed to be invested in land, and en- 
tailed, with the St. Leonard's estates, 
on the sons of the Marquis d'Harcourt 
and his heirs male. In failure of such 
issue, on George Harcourt, Esq. of Coop- 
er^s Hill, near Egham (we presume the 
i«presentative of the Archdeacon Har- 
court before noticed). His Lordship di- 
rects, that if the person who shall suc- 
ceed to the lands purchased with the 
80,000/. be absent from England more 
than six months at one time, utiless he 
be so in the civil or niiliiary service of 
Great Britain, or under 2& years of age, 
and travelling for his education, he shall 
forfeit the advantages of such bequest. 
Legacies to the amount of 6,000/. are 
bequeathed, and the building of a school 
on Clewer-green by the Countess. The 
personalty is sworn under 180,000/.

dual now deceased. The third, Pbiltp- 
Edward, died at Naples, April 8, 1880,

about which no difficulty was expressed. The 
device in question so closely resembled the 
figure of a thunderbolt found on all Roman 
aatiquities, that I felt no difficulty in pro- 
notmeing it to be an imitation of that classi- 
cal emblem. I must add that I see no- 
thii^ in Mr. Oliver's lest letter on the sub- 
Jeety (vol. c. part i. p. 691) to faidiiee me to 
alter my opinion.'* 

TopooRAPBUs observes—" On any point 
of British Topography it b so natural to 
seek information firom your Magasine, that 
I trust you will forgive me for troobliitgyon 
with a query respecting an obtcnre pliieey 
Bot mentioned, to the beat of my know- 
ledge, in any of our old books or maps of 
the roads. Mr. Ireland, in his * Pictn- 
resqiie Views on the Hiver Thames,' vol. ii. 
p. 47» says, when in the vicinity of Old 
Windsor, * PassingOtueky towards JSgham,' 
&c. Suspecting that it might derive its 
nanM from the ancient Amily of Ouseley 
(whose pedigree, with others of the old 
Shropshire and Nonhamptonshire fiunilies, 
had ror some time cagued my attention) I 
requested a friend lesimag near Egham to 
visit the place, and com'munieate to me all 
that he could learn reapecting it. He found 
there but one building with its offices, a 
kind of iftn or public-house, which from a 
sign of Five Bclb b called ' The Belb of 
Ouseley.' It stands close to the fiver 
Thames, among some fine old trees of con- 
siderable size. It appears from a printed 
handbill now before me that the estate of 
Beaumont Lodge, other tenements, and the 
* Belb of Onsetey,' were advertised for sale 
at Chrrawav'a Coffeehouse in London on 
the 15th of September, 1801. Is thb the 
plaee to which Mr. Ireland, as above quoted^ 
allqdes? Any informatioB respecting its 
name and origin will oblige. The Gratle- 
maa's Magaiine for January, 1799, eoatains 
some curious particubn,.with a view of the 
monument of the Ouseley family in North- 
emptonshire; from whom- thb place may 
perhaps have derived its nanle." 

A CoRRESPONDCNT wfites — *' A por- 
tion of a Parish Register, begbningin 1671, 
containing baptbms, marriues, and burials, 
eaeh leaf or page signed « Tho. Frank, Rec- 
tor,' and the names of divers Churchwardens 
very regnlarlv until 1689, has fallen into my 
hands, which I cooM wbh to restore to the 
plaee to which it belongs, but have no means 
of ascertaining of what parbh thb Thomas 
Frabk was Kector, and the names, though 

many of them very common, aflSDrdiajr no cine 
to a discovery, not one parbh in fiucking- 
hamshire, occurring to me as being likely to 
own It t nor is there the name of one persou 
or fomily of note, though probably many to 
whom such an autheotic document might 
eventuallv be Important. It strikes me tnat 
Bedfordshire might possibly compriao the 
parbh, but only from the similarity of some 
very common names there in divers places. 
In one place, * William Brittaio and 
Mary Page, widdow, were msrryed on }* 
thirteenth of Febraary, 1689; both these 
persons were inhabitants of North Crawley 
10 y* oounty of Bucks : Tho. Frank, Rector ; 
George QUlett, Thomas Oromtet, Church- 
waidens.'*>On the blank pegcat the ban- 
ning is T. F. 1788 : to whom Uib relates, 
whether to a relative of the Rector, Mr. 
Firank, or not, b entiraly unknown. It was 
pnrehosed amongst the offml uf an attorney's 
offioe in London, as b asserted, many years 
ago : and by a subsequent sale has been 
.tiansferred to the inquirer. The venr strange 
name of Roger Ventiman occurs m 1688. 
It must have been some very small parish, 
the marriages scarcely averaging half a do- 
zen in a year. 

L. say4, « Any partioulari relative to the 
late General Havilaod, hb fomily connec- 
tions, or military appointments and sorvioes^ 
in addition to those raeorded in vol. Lnr. p.

the membert of the board giTe their

Che procett ; but the reader mav form an 
opinion of itt abturdity from thit — that 
Isad there been no more than two racan- 
riei, Fhelan wat entitled, by the judcr- 
mrnt of the eleciort, to tbe tecond, but, 
at there were three, he wat excluded, ac- 
ounliuic to the tame Judgment, from all. 
In the fullowlnf year he wat af^ain un- 
tue<^tfu1i and thute repeated dlsap- 
pulntmentt vialtin|c a conitltution natu- 
rally weak and irritable, and now that- 
tered by iutnnte application, induced 
him to i^lTe over the further purtuitt of 
eollf K* honourt, and accept the tituatiun 
of temnd matter in the endowed tchool 
of Londonderry. Upwardt of two yeart 
had pamcd In thit new occupation when 
he wat prevailed upt>n, by the advice of 
the Archbithop of Dublin (who wat the 
Dean of Cork;, to try his chance once 
more, and, notwitbstandini; to long a 
desuetude of familiarity with the austere 
muses of tbe upper end of the hall, be 
wateatily tuccessful.. From tbit period 
he devoted himself almost exclusively to 
the study of 'divinity, for whichj indeed, 
the Rolitjiry, ttate of his chambert left 
him abundant leisure; for, whatever 
may have been the cause,' he was unpo- 
pular at a tutor,' and either was ignorant 
of the arts, or ditdained to make use of 
them, by which^ pupilt were made to 
awarm around others, hit inferiort in 
every retpect. A pamphlet which he 

Sublished, intitled "The Bible, not the 
iible Society," operated in tome degree 
against bis tuccets. It was praised highly 
by the High Church party, but it ex- 
cited the pious indignation of anumerout 
and influential clatt in society; than 
whom there are few nore active at 
frientft, and none to bitter and indefati- 
gable as foes. No wonder if poor Phelan 
imarted under the lath. In 1820 he wat 
appointed ' to preach the " Donnellan 
Lectures," and bit discourtet were great- 
ly admired fur the beauty of the style at 
much as for tbe ttrength and closeneot 
of tbe argument. But, although his ser- 
mons were masterpieces of composition, 
he wanted tbe physical requisitet which 
go to constitute a great preacher. Hit 
'voice, in particular, was bad, and so 
weak' as to be almost inaudible in the 
gallery even of tbe college chapel. It 
was as a controversialist that he shone. 
In that field the peculiar puwen of his 

mind were brought into action, and tbe 
variety of his informatioOt as well at the 
acutenest and intrepidity of bit charac- 
ter, displayed themselvei. Thit Dr. I>oyle 
found to hit cott, when. In 1834, he 
launched out the first of his flerce tirades 
against the doctrinet and the establish- 
ment of the Church, with all that confl- 
dence of assertion which goes down with 
the multitude for superior knowledge. 
Phelan took his weapons from a store- 
house into which the good eaty Doctor 
little dreamt of any Protestant divine in- 
truding ; for, being well versed in the 
Irish language, not only as it it tpoken, 
but, what it a rare accomplishment even 
in thit country, being familiar with itt 
written character, he rantacked the ma- 
nutcript-rooni of the college library, and 
tpeedily convinced the world that he 
knew more about the introduction of 
Christianity into Ireland, and even about 
the renowned St. Patrick, than Dr.Doyle 
himself. A pamphlet which he published 
linder the signature of '* Declan " (after 
an ancient worthy of the Irish church 
who flourished before the dominion of 
the Pope was recognised in the *' holy 
isle,") placed its author at the head of 
modern controversialists, and the re- 
doubtable J. K. L. attempted to answer 
it in vain. 

In I8S5, Dr. Phelan withdrew his 
name from the college books, and mar- 
ried, having previously endeavoured to 
obtain a dispensation from the king to 
enable him to retain bis fellowship. Mr. 
Plunkett undertook to procure that in- 
dulgence for h'm, but either he did not 
exert himself as was expected, or the 
Oxford prejudices of the Home Secretary 
were not to be overcome, and Phelan 
once more began tbe world with a wife 
and a curacy. He met with a munificent 
patron, however, in the Primate, who 
never tuffers a deserving clergyman to 
languish in his diocese, and who takes a 
laudable pride in promoting men of 
learning and ability. Dr. Phelan was 
soon presented to a good living (Killy- 
man} by his Grace ; and the college, to 
mark their sense of his merit, as well as 
to compensate him for the loss of bis fel- 
lowship, agreed to bestow upon him the 
first benefice at their disposal (Artray) 
the choice of which would have fallen to 
his turn if he had still remained in col- 
lege. Thus, at the time of bis death, he 
was in tbe possession of two valuable 

Since Dr. Phelan's examination by the 
committee of the House of Lords, in 
18S5, his name has been but little before

tensive parifhcsj and in the cultivation

voured to regulate my conduct in early 
life, although they exposed me to much 
opposition and contumely, are now be- 
come the avowed sentiments of the ablest 
and best men of the age, and have, in 
many instances, been brought into effi- 
cient operation for the benefit uf the 
public, by the enlightened members of 
His Majesty's Government. 

<* I beg to express my sincere wishes 
for the happiness of your worthy alder- 
man, the deputy, and the gentlemen 
with whom 1 have acted, and for the ge- 
Deral prosperity of the inhabitants of the 
ward of Aldgate. — I have the honour to 
be your faithful servant, 

*' Samuel Favell. 
« St. Mary-Axe, Nov. 6, 1829." 

On the SOth of last April a Urge pro- 
portion of the members of the Corpora- 
tion met in the Council-chamber at 
Guildhall to witness the .presentation of 
a piece of plate to Mr. Favell. It bore 
the inscription— *' To Samuel Favell, 
Esq. Presented on his retirement from 
public life by S30 members and officers 
of the Corporation of London, in testi- 
mony of tlieir respect and esteem for the 
Ability and integrity which uniformly 
distinguished his conduct, and fur his 
amiable and conciliatory deportment 
during the many years he continued a 
member of the Court of Common Coun- 
ciU—S6th April, 1830." 

Mr. Favell was conducted into the 
Council Chamber t^ Mr. Alderman Wood 
and Mr. Alderman Waithroan. The Lord 
Mayor oflPered the present with a com- 
plimentaiy speech, highly eulogiiing 
Mr. Favell as the advocate of freedom ; 
the asserter of the rights of toleration ; 
and the promoter of education, and re- 
form in the penal code ; and Mr. Favell 
made a long and eloquent reply. 

On the Sunday on which he .died, Mr. 
Favell had three times attended public 
worship at Camden Chapel. He supped 
and talked cheerfully wiih his family ; 
went to bed at half-past nine, and before 
ten was instantaneously summoned into 
eternity, by a stroke of apoplexy.

man in theHbyal Navy, about the same 
time ^\ih his present Majesty. The first 
engagement tbMt he mmw was likewise 
/^ Jf/vi w which Kiot William IV. 

stood the fire of the enemy,— that in 
which Langara, the Spanish Admiral, 
was defeated and taken. He was then 
in the Invincible, but soon after quitted 
that ship, and served for some years in 
the Pegasus frigate, commanded by Cap- 
tain Stanhope. In this vessel he saw a 
great deal of service in the West Indies, 
and had twice tlie yellow fever. It is 
somewhat singular also, that the present 
King afterwards sailed in the same ship. 
On bis return from the West Indies be 
quitted tbe navy, and studied medicine 
at the college of Edinburgh, where he 
took his degree. He then passed tbe 
College of London, and has ever since 
practised in the metropolis. During the 
regency of his late Majesty, lie was ap- 
pointed one of his Physicians extraordi- 
nary, and shortly after was elected Phy-

used Christ on the Meant of Celfary, all 
hebg &ir gih, and IhreW and beaatiftilly tet 
forth. To cover and keep oleaii all the 
whichf there were very fair and painted 
boards, aaade to thut to, which were opened 
upon high and solemn Feaat Days, which 
then was a very beaatiful shew{ which 
pabted boards were set np again in Queen 
Mary's time. At the north end of the same 
altar, there was a goodiv tilt tabemaele, 
reaching np to the roof or the ChanodI, hi 
the which there was one &ir large gilt 
iiMge of The Holy TrinUyf being patron of 
the Church, besides other fiur imsgee. The 
like tabemscle was at the south end. 

*< There was also in my lie, called Jesus 
lb, at the back of the Altar, a table with a 
crucifix on it, with the two thieves hanging, 
on every side one, which is in my houie de- 
cayed, and the same I hope my heiret will 
repaire and restore again, one day. Tliere 
was also two fair gilt tabernacles, firom the 
ground up to the roofe, with a fiiir Image qf 
Jesuit in the tabernacle, at the north end of 
the altar, holding a round bawie in bb hand, 
sianifying, I think, that he oontaineth the 
whole round world % and, in the tabemaele, 
at the south end, there was a fair image of 
oar Blessed Lady having the afflicted body 
of her dear Son, as he was taken down, off 
the cross, lying along in her laop, the tears, 
as it were, running down pittinilly upon her 
beautiful cheeks, as it seemed, bedewing the 
said sweet body of her son, and therefore 
named The Image rf our Lady of Pity. 

** Afemorand.— There was a fitir Rood Loft, 
with the Rood, Mary and John, of every 
side, and with a fair pair of organs standing 
thereby ; which loft extended all the breadth 
of the Church, and on Good Friday, a 
Priest, then standing by the Rood, sang the 
Patsion» The side thereof, towards the oody 
of the church, in twelve partitions in boards, 
wu fiur painted with the images of the 
ijpvJra Aj)ostles.

timber, to be set up about Manndav Thurs- 
day, with holes for a aomber of fiur tapers 
to stand in before the sepulchre, and to be 
lighted in servioa time. Sometimes it was 
set overthwart the Quire before the Altar, 
the sepulchre being sJwaiee placed, aad finely 
gareisliad, at the north and of the High 
Altar I between that aad Mr. Cloptou's lit*

wall, I think upon a tomb of one of his

was set nasr the steps gomg up to the said 
Altar. Lastly, it was lued to be set up, all 
along by Mr. Gopton's lie, with a door, 
made to go out of the rood luft bto it. 

*• Upon Palm Sunday the Blessed Sacra- 
asaat was osrryed in procession about the 
ehurefayard, uader a nir canopy, borne by 
four yeomen; the procession coming to the 
church gate, went westward, and they with 
the Blessed Saersmant went eastward ; and 
when the proaession cama againat the door 
of Mr. Goptea's lie, they with the Blessed 
Saerament, aad with a little bell and singing, 
approaahad at the eaK end of our Ladie s 
Chappell, at wbioli tin&e a boy with a thing 
in his hand pointed to it, sicni^ing a pro- 
phet» as I think, sang, standing on the tyr-

all did kneel down, and then, rising up, 
waul aad mat the saorameat, and so then,

flowers, and slngiag oakes, &o. 

*• On Corpus Christ! day, they went like- 
wise with the Blessed Saerament in proces- 
sion about the eburoh green in copes, and I 
think alsop they went in prooession, on St. 
Mark's day, about the said green, with 
haadbells ringing before them, as they did 
about the bounds of the town, in Roeitlon 
week, on the Monday one way, on the Tues- 
day another way, and on the Wednesday 
another, praying for rain or fiur weather, 
as the time re<|uired, haviag a drinking and

had a breakfast with butter and cheese, Sec. 
at the Parsonage, aad a drinking at Mr.

there was a Uttle chappel, I think of St.

they had a drinking at Melford Hall. All the

Bp. Movk*8 Life of Dr. Bentlby. 

{Continuedfrxm p, 184.) 
Wiih a Pariraii of Dr. Bentley. 

BEING diicontented with the reve- 
nues of hit tituatioDf as derived 
from the tithes of some rectories, the 
new Professor resolved to take the ^reat 
tithes tn kind, and to let the small tithes 
to his bailiff. His tithe wheat and 
barley were conveyed by barges to two 
out-houses converted into granaries at 
the back of the lodge; and, in the 
course of the next two years, the greater 
part of the articles were sold to the 
College for the bakehouse and brewery. 
And as the highest prices were paid for 
them, though more or less damaged, it 
occasioned an outcry against the Pro- 
fessor, not only on the score of rapa- 
city, but of meanness, in exercising the 
trades of farmer and maltster. These, 
and other more disgraceful, though 
unproved charges, were very deroga^ 
tory to his reputation, as subjecting 
him to imputations alike disgraceful to 
one in his dignified station. 

In 1717 George I. yisited the Uni- 
Tcrsity, when several new Doctors 
were to be created by Royal mandate. 
From each of these the Professor de- 
manded a fee of four guineas, in addi- 
tion to a^broad piece, the regular compli- 
ment on creation. The greater part pro- 
tested against this demand, as unreason- 
able. After much altercation, Bentley 
refused to create any one who would not 
acquiesce in his requisition. Conyers 
Middleton was among the number of 
those who refused payment. But he 
and some others at length agreed to 
^y the fee, taking a promise from 
Bentley that be would return it, if his 
claim thereto was proved to be uo* 
founded. The rest Bentley createc^ 

Toured to have his claim confirmed by 
the interference of the Court ; but the 
Minister of State declined to inter- 
meddle in a matter of so invidious and 
personal a nature. At this rebuff Bent- 
ley was so chagrined, that he laid aside 
the THrd part of his remarks on Free- 
ihiaking, which be had then even com- 

menced printing. Meanwhile Dr. Mid- 
dleton, nearing no tidings of his four 
guineas, applied to the Professor for it to 
be refunded. But no regard being paid 
to his applications, he sued forthesum as 
a debt, in the Vice-Chancellor's Court. 
The Vice-Chancellor held many con- 
ferences with the Professor, assuring 
him that if the matter were 10 come 
into his Court, he must decide it a- 
gainst him. Bentley, however, pertina- 
ciously persisted in carrying on a contest 
from which neither credit nor advan* 
tage could ensue, and in which he 
would receive no countenance from his 
brother Heads, with whom, indeed, be 
was unpopular. At length the Vice- 
Chancellor issued a writ for arresting 
the Professor, which was served by 
one of the Esquire bedell% who being 
ill-treated and kept in durance by be- 
ing locked up in an empty room for 
several hours, the Vice-Chancellor and 
Heads resolved to resent this insult to 
the University in the person of its of- 
ficer. And upon Bentley*s refusing to 
ask pardon for his contempt of Courts 
the Vice-Chancellor proceeded to pub- 
licly and solemnly declare '* Ricnard 
Bentley suspended ab omni gradu sus' 
cepio,** a sentence confirmed by a ^reat 
majority of the senate. Nay, the Vice- 
Chancellor proceeded to prohibit him 
from acting as Professor, and even 
threatened to declare the Professorship 
vacant; but did not dare to execute 
his threat. Upon this our undoctored 
Professor petitioned the King against 
the University; and the Vice-Chan- 
cellor laid a representation of the pro- 
ceedings before the King in council. 
A number of pamphlets, all anony- 
mous, were now put forth for and 
against Bentley, which caused a sen- 
sation in the public mind almost un- 
precedented. This literary contest took 
place at the end of 17 18 and the be- 

S'nnlng of 1719* and the feud among 
e Heads descended to the juniors and 
even under-graduates of the Univer- 
sity. And now the Fellows of Trinity 
renewed their exertions to procure a 
hearing for their petition, which was 
read in council and favourably receiv- 
ed. Whereupon Bentley, with great 
dexterity, contrived to bring about a

. Our Critic oow lent forth his elabo« 
Tate Dissertation on the Metres of Te« 
lence, together with an Edition of tliat 
writer, and also one of Pbsedras ; on 
which Dr. Monk has some jodiciom 
remarks, in illustration of the orkin and 
progreu of the controversy of &ntley 
witn Bp» Hare on the metres of Te- 
rence. With an ardour seldom found 
even in the voung, our veteran Critic 
now applied himself to an Edition of 
Lncau's Pharsalia. His Notes, how- 
ever, from the proposed Edition clash- 
ing with two other rival ones then pre- 
paring bv Cortlns and Oudendorp, did 
Sot see the lisht till fourteen years afler 
it death, when they were printed at 
the Strawberry Hill Press. 

Our illustrious Aristarchos so retain- 
ed the vis vivida animi, that he now, at 
6ft, proposed to give new editions of 
Manilius and Homer (the former of 
which was some yean after published) 
and had not yet abandoned his design 
%o edit the Greek Testament As to 
the afiaira of Trinity College, all the 
Master*! wiihea and projects were now 
tarried without obstruction; though 
tome of them were objectionable, and 
•avoured of oppression and selfishness : 
insomuch that in 17S7 fresh attempts 
were made to procure a visitation of 
Trinity College, and the Bp. of Ely 
was prevailed on to undertake the visi« 
lation, if it should be found that he 
had the pro|>er jurisdiction. In 17S0 
George II. visited the University, and 
wai entertained by Dr. Bentley at Tri- 
nity Lodge. In consequence of hit 
faugue on this occasion, the Doctor 
was attacked with a dangerous illness; 
but medical skill, or the goodness of 
his constitution, soon recovered him. 
Meanwhile the scheme for ejecting the 
Master was still carried forward. But 
BentlejT anticipated bis prosecutors by 
a Petition to nis Majesty. The prose- 
cutors drew up counter petitions, and 
the Bishop sent one to have the rights 
of his See examined, and cited Bent- 
ley to appear before him. The Mas- 
ter applied to the King's Bench for 
a prohibition. And now (in 1730) 
Bentley had an oflFer of the Deanery of 
Lincoln, which he refused, as thmk- 
ing it not an equivalent for the sacri- 
fice of his Academical emoluments. 
Jn the year 1731 the Court pronounced 
tAat the Bishop of Ely was general 

Visitor of tho CoUegt, and that the 
Maater was thrown upon his retoureet 
to avert so imminent a danger. He 
sent a petition to the KinK, and brought 
his cause before the Privy Council. 
While awaitins for its determination, 
he engaged in the only unsuccessful of 
all his literary undertakings, his Edition 
of Milton's Paradise Lost. He was in- 
deed in many respects unqualified for 
the work, which proved a total failure, 
and did more lo sink his reputation than 
any of his prcccdioff woras had done 
to raise it. Still, as Dr. Monk truly ob- 
serves, " the work contains many just 
and aeosible remarks, and many acute 
pieces of criticism; and we cannot but 
often admit the justness of his strictures, 
and even the Fxiet himself might have 
proBted by many of the hint*.*' In 
1733 the case between Dr. Bentley 
and the Bp. of Ely was carried before 
the House of Lords, which reversed 
the judgment of the Court of Kine's 
Bench, and, aftar a subsequent conside- 
ration of the case in another Session, 
the Bishop received his Writ of per- 
mission to act aa Judge in the affairs 
of Triniw CJollege, aiKl hekl his first 
Court at Ely House, in June 1733. Dr. 
Bentley was then cited to appear in per- 
son, but be only attended by Proc- 
tor. In ten days after, the Master sent 
in hit Defensive Plea, in which the 
charges were ingeniously evaded, and 
the transactions placed in quite ano- 
ther light, thottgn the defence is cer- 
tainly not satisfactory. The evidence 
for the prosecution and that for the 
defence were each taken at great 
length. And now, on the S7th April, 
1734, die Court being assembled 
to deliver a final judgment upon the 
cause, the Biahop formally pronounced 
Dr. Bentley guilty of the cnar^ laid 
against him, and sentenced him to be 
deprived of the Mastership of Trinity 
College. Undaunted even at this, Dr. 
B. determined to take his stand behind 
the last entrenchment, and resist the 
execution of the sentence. Findine 
that theaenience would not be valid till 

Eut in execution by the Vice-Master, 
e first prevailed upon the then Vice- 
Master to suspend the execution till he 
had taken legal advice how to proceed, 
and then contrived to induce him to 
resign, and procured another to be ap- 
pointed who was firmly in the Master's 
interest, and utterly refusing to carry the 
sentence into execution, set the Bishop 
at defiance ; whoy aa a Dissolution of

_ _ a great ornament to hii valu- 

iBIe edition. The latter ^eari of Bent- 
ley were somewhat embittered by the 
KrM) and unmanly attacks of Pope and 
nil part^, wbote hoitility to Bcntiey 


had been undeviating and unappeasable, 
and who thought they had now chosen 
the time to kick the worn-out Lion of 
Criticism. For the enmity of Pope 
iBneexcuse may be found ( but none lor

And now our narrative has reached 
its last stage, and we have only to (*i- 
nud that the Prince of Critics departed 
this life, sftet a short but severe attack 
of pleurisy, which terminated fatally 
Ibr warn of bleeding (though the pa* 
tient bad himself suggested that it 
ought to be resorted to), in the 8ltl 
year of his age, July I4th, 17*2. He 
died bv no means wealthy, the most 
valuable bequest being that of his Li- 
brary and MSS., which came partly 
into the hands of Trinilj> College, and 
partly into those of the British Museum- 
Of his domestic life many interesliDg 
anecdotes are collected by our indefati- 
gable Biographer, which will be pccuts- 
arly interesting to academical readen. 

As to the perional eharacttr of Bent- 
ley, it was, we must confess, a some* 
wKat mixed one. It is humiliating lo 
lettered pride, but not unedifying, to 
reflect how imperfect an effect hii un- 
rivalled learning had in regulating hia 
passions, humaniiing his manners, and 
raising him above the temptations of 

Cride, vanity, and seltishriess. It must, 
owever, be admiiLcd, that there is no- 
thing in the nature of profoundly leaf ti- 
ed and Critical studies peculiarly ad- 
verse lu amiableneas of personal cha- 
racter ; and that, as in the cases of not 
a few illustrious individuals of out 
own age and couniiy, profound team- 
ing docs not necessarily produce Brra< 
gancB, vanity, dogmatism, and (uper- 
cilious contempt of others ; but is con- 
sistent wiih the highest urbanity and 
courtesy, — ihe culiivaiion of all moral 
virtues, and the acquirement of alt 
Christian graces. That Bentley, how- 
ever, possessed many amiable qualilie* 
cannot be doubted ; for how else couM 
he have attached to himself to many de- 
voted friends J He was indeed too (muI 
of money, but, though frugal, he was 
never penurious, — ihou^'n tvcnat ^w-

probably of the time of Henry the 8th, 
(Cens. Liter, vol. viii. p. 368).

By the bye, Stonyhurst, in his Vir-

what poet would wish to dispute with 
him such lines as these? —

Esamion in Hamptlan w iSSik 


In thearriingQiDeni of the two pulpiu, 
ODe being intended for the reading- 
tlttk, a tenselest innovation hat been 
effected; they are situated at the west 
end of the nave, and consequently the 
whole of the congregation torn their 
backs on the altar. This departure 
from established rule most have been 
directed by the very spirit of innova- 
tion and novelty | there is nothing in 
the form of the nave, or in the ar- 
nnsement of the building, which 
comd at all be urged as a reason for 
ihis singular arrangement. There is 
no plea of convenience or expediency 
to justify the change, which must have 
entirely resulted from whim and ca- 

Cice. The ancient font is now insu- 
ted, and placed in the centre of the 
tower. On the north side of the alur 
u a mutilated effigy, mitred, and bear- 
ing a croiier, which was discovered in 
the proi^ress of the repairs. On the op- 
posite side is a stone coffin, and near it 
•« piscina. The altar screen is inscribed 
** DoNUU Jacobi Parkbh, 167s." 

Tiie chancel has been but little al- 
tered in the reparation. The screens 
at the altar, mentioned by Englefield, 
retain their places; but the suUs he 
noticed have disappeared. The arch of 
the west window of the nave, which 
was formerly void, has been filled with 
mollions and tracery. 

The statue of Queen Anne, on the 
Bar Gate, which excited the mirth of 
Sir H. Englefield, has given way to one 
of George III. in Roman costume, 
which for any resemblance it bears to 
■ the original, may have been intended 
for one of the Cssars, and oeconomi- 
cally appropriated to the English mo- 
narch ; in the same manner as a Lord 
Mayor of London is recorded to have 
transformed a statue of Sobieski into

The building called the Castle, has 
been entirely destroyed, and on its site 
18 a ** Zion, with the date of 1823. 

At Mile End, a new and extensive 
suburb, is a new Chapel, in the Point- 
ed^ style of architecture ; it is built of 
brick covered with stucco ; Architect, 
Benham. At the west end are two 
spires, but there is nothing very striking 
in its architecture or decorations. 

The Isle of Wight has been so ofien 

described by every deieriptioa of tourists, 
that none of its various features of inte- 
rest, whether antiquarian or picturesque, 
can possibly have escaped notice. 

Rrading Church is probably the 
largest, and u reputed to be Uie most 
ancient in the island. In a chapel at 
the east end of the south aile, is a mo- 
nument of the age of Elizabeth, con- 
sisting of an altar tomb, surmounted 
with the cross-legged effigy of a Knight 
in the plate armour of the time, ex- 
tended on a mat, as the statues of this 
period generalljr are. Above this effigy, 
which IS the size of life, is a smaUer 
one similarly armed, which is also dis- 
-tingnished by the crossing of the legs. 
These monuments seem to negative 
the idea once entertained, that figures 
in this position were either actual cru- 
saders, or persons who had vowed to 
participate in the holy wars. As no in- 
tention of a crusade could possibly be 
entertained at the period of the coii- 
•truction of the efiigies under consi- 
deration, I am inclined to attribute 
the position merely to a veneration for 
the form of the cross, which seems 
to be the prevalent opinion amongst 
antiquaries on this subject. 


The Church is a large building, con- 
sisting of a nave, transept, and chancel. 
The former is modern, having been 
rebuilt in the Italian style. The tran- 
septs and other eastern portions show 
the earliest pointed architecture. The 
windows are lancet-formed ; the vault- 
ing of the simplest description, very 
much resembling the older part of the 
transept of York Cathedral. 

In Fortsea two new Chapels have been 
built under the directions of the Com- 
missionen for building new Churches. 
St. Paul's Chapel is a large structure of 
stone, in the Pointed style of architec- 
ture, built from the designs of Mr. 
Goodwin. It somewhat resembles 
Bordesley Chapel, by the same archi- 
tect, engraved in vol. xevn. pt. ii. p. 
£01, though very inferior in iwint of 
correctness to that building. The mul- 
lioiM and tracery are iion ; the latter is 
fantastic in design, and in its propor- 
tions little stonter than a common 
window frame. 

All Saints' Chapel is built of stone, 
in a purer taste ; it consists of a nave 
and aisles, and the architecture is in 
the best style of the fourteenth century.

Tragediei of Gmtaifus Fata and GuMtaous Adolphui* (Sept; 

^^that intrepid fearlessness of cbarac* 
ter, with wnich, through difficuhies, 
that to most other minds would ap- 
pear insormountable, they, with the 
persererance which would have distin- 
guished a denizen of the old Roman 
republic, compassed their ends, — that 
magnanimity and nobleness of soul 
which shone through all their actions, 
and prompted them to sacrifice their 
own comfort; and the luxury and mag- 
nificence of a monarch to the exiscncies 
of their people,— these elevated traits 
of character, so rarely distinguishing 
thrones, hold forth to the poet a rich 
assemblage of materials. As lumi- 
naries who, individually, reflected at 
once on their country and themselves 
the most dazzling splendour and re- 
nown, the annals o^ Sweden, or 
perhaps of any other nation, can scarcely 
farnisn subjects of heroism more finely 
fitted to the purposes of the tragic 
writer than those of the elder and the 
younger Gustavus. For, if it may 
strike some that Charles the Twelfth, 
another of the Swedish dynasty, ex- 
ceeded them both in dazzling exploits, 
yet the character of the former was by 
no means so entirely adapted to the 
purposes of heroic analysis. 

The personal heroism of Charles 
transcended even the creatures of ro- 
mance; and, while it rivalled the fabled 
heroes who fought at Troy, threw 
into the shade the chronicled achieve- 
ments of those boasts of ancient story, 
Alexander and Caesar, and forms a 
central point for admiration to all 
posterity; — but the actions, and the 
life of Charles, however it might have 
furnished subjects for epic writing, are 
less adapted for the purposes of tragedy. 

Charles, notwithstanding his career 
of victory and of glory, was, as all 
know, the destroyer of his country 
rather than its preserver ; while Gus- 
tavus Vasa may emphatically be termed 
its Saviour : and the second Gustavus, 
by the noble stand which he made in 
favour of liberty, against several united 
powers of Europe, may as emphatically 
be designated the great champion of the 
rights of mankind, and of the Pro- 
testant cause. 

The catastrophe of Charles at Pul- 
towa, may be termed one of those 
freaks of fortune which might have 
been expected by a monarcn whose 
desperate valour placed all his honours 
#a the cast of a die $— but the wisdom 

and foresight of the others covered a 
brave nation with unprecedented glories, 
no less by the arts of peace, than the 
terror of their arms. " The habits 
of Gustavus Adolphus," says an elegant 
historian, '* were of the most simple 
kind; he shared in all the bodily fa- 
tigues of his soldiers ; though the nold- 
ntss of his enter prizes astonished the 
world, he was personally mild, bene- 
ficent, susceptible of lo\'e and friend- 
ship, eloquent, popular, and full of re« 
liance on Providence; the principal 
traits of his character were magnani- 
mity and gentleness." 

We read, likewise, of the elder Gus- 
tavus (whose character is briefly traced 
by the same writer) — as "a leader who 
possessed the power of imparting to 
the people his heroic spirit, — one whose 
views were so just as to lead him to 
undertake no more than what was ca- 
pable of being carried into execution.*' 

It has often been remarked bycritics* 
that it is essential to a fine tragedy that 
its subject be correspondently in unison 
with the effect designed to be produced 
in the mind of the reader. If it be 
not necessary that, as in epic poetry, 
the action should be great, still it 
should always superinduce noble and 
magnanimous sentiments in its promi- 
nent characters ; or it is impossible to 
sustain that degree of interest in its 
various parts, without which not all the 
genius of the artist can raise it to that 
standard of justness, beauty, and ex- 
pression, which ought properly to at- 
uch to it« 

In the <' Robbers" of Schiller, it is 
the greatness of soul which we occa- 
sionally find embodied in Charles's 
character, which solely sustains the in- 
terest of the piece. The brutal and 
desperate valour of his associate out- 
laws, and their cold-blooded and reck- 
less cruelly, are calculated only to excite 
aversion and disgust;— but the some- 
what mistified sublimity of character 
which drives a young man, through an 
overwhelming sense of injustice and 
wrong, to become a robber and an as- 
sassin, redeems its atrocities, and throws 
over the drama a proper character of 

And here, if it has been pertinently 
remarked by an elegant critic in these 
matters, that *' firie writing depends as 
much on a happiness in the arrange- 
ment, as in the choice of oar ideas,"

It will hardly oe said by any one 
who bestows even a momentary atten- 
tion on the state of intellectual attain* 
ments among us, that the talent for 
dramatic writing keeps pace with the 
other branches of literature, or indeed 
that its display amounts even to pofi« 
tive respectability. May we not, there- 
fore, still anticipate the speedy restora- 
tion of a drama of high out neglected 
merits. Glowine with the charms of 
novelty, and brightening in those linea- 
ments of originality, and vigour of 
thought, which must in every age give

The purification of the drama has, 
at many seras of our literature, been 
talked of as a national desideratum. 
Surely, by reviving on our stage those 

Sieces which alike combine, in a high 
egree, moral beautv and classical taste, 
and which by jointly actine with those 
which are already standard favourites, 
may tend to raise the moral character 
of our drama, national good in more 
than a literary view is accomplished. 
There are pieces from the hand of 
eminent masters, which abundantly 
redeem it from the complaint so often 
and so loudly alledged, and not alto- 
gether without reason, that the English 
ktaee is a school for the encouragement 
of nceutiousness and profligacy. Ben 
Jonson is well known, in his " £x- 
plorata," to have said, in reply to those 
of his contemporaries who used to boast 
that Shakspeare never blotted a line of 
all he wrote, " Would that he had 
blotted a thousand \" 

With e(^ua], and indeed with far 
greater justice, may it be said of multi- 
tudes of his successors, down to the 
present time ; the pernicions tendency 
of whose pieces, or the exceptional 

Shraseology of whose dialogue, has 
one much in bringing dramatic exhi- 
bitions into disrepute amonff many of 
our countrymen, who are neither soured 
^ puritanism, or destitute of taste — 
that much might with convenience 
have been spared. The revival of old 
standards of real worth and excellence, 
which breathe a high tone of disinte- 
rested virtue and patriotism, or of ge- 
nerous sentiments, is, we contend, a 
national acquisition. 
* Referring to the well-written remarks 


ofyour correspondent H. in yOar last No- 
vember Maeasine, p. 410, upon some 
of the weathercock notions of the age, 
and particularly on an article penned 
bv an official oracle of the new London 
University,* that the present j^eration 
are, par excelience, Dinning io lee, 
whereas their ancestors gropnl in the 
dark, I am inclined to tnink that the 
prejudices and ignorance of our fathers 
of the last century were not always so 
palpable as are pretended. 

It is indeed true that a great *' moral 
revolution** has taken place (nbi supra) 
in periodical writing; whether, indeed, 
we refer to its style of treatment, either 
of melanges or metaphytict. For the 
first, melanges, witness the sort of im- 
pressions which hover round the mind 
as we rise, at any time, from the pe« 
rusal of some frothy piece of inanity 
which often fills a wide gap in the 
pages of your monthly brethren, — the 
worthlessness of which is ill compen- 
sated by the butterfly gilding wtiich 
adorns it. And to be persuaded that a 
*' moral revolution** lias taken place 
in the method of discussing metaphy- 
sical questions, it is only necessary to 
refer to the article in a late Edinburgh 
Review, on M. Cousin's '• Course of 
Philosophy." The predicaments and 
relations, within the ample science of 
Ontology, are rarious and indefinite ; 
but if anv of your readers perceive the 
lucid ana intelligible bearings of the 
greater part of this piece in question, 
they do more than the present writer. 

Innovation, however, as everyone 
knows, is not always improvement. 
The " quip *' and squibs, and carp- 
ines, wnicn some of your contempo- 
raries, in the plenitude of their illumi- 
nations, discnarge alike at literary 
works and institutions which are not 
precisely of their own school,— and the 
gibes which they level, often innoxiously 
enough, against others of equal taste 
and discernment perchance, but whose 
commodities of literature exhibit less 
of pungent acrimony,— >are proofs of 
the dauntless and frontless confidence 
with which, from the new lights of 
the agle, the arm of their prodigious 
Teaming (God wot !) assails their more 
retiring adversary.

tor and scholar had understood the 
language from which it is proved that 
Greek and Latin are in a great mea- 
sure derived, he would see that much 
of the spirit of the original has evapo- 
rated through these translations. The 

• great Lexicographer, who insunced in 
himself the greatest strength and weak- 
ness of the numan mind, entertained 
an erroneous opinion that the Celtic 
language was not sufficiently copious 
andf expressive to sustain a regular 
poem, or any production of weight and 
vigour. Had he studied it, he would 
have found it to abound in strength, 
▼ariety, and expression. The Persian 
alphabet onlv is calculated to ernress 
the Celtic syllables, not practicable by 
any combinations of our letters. In 
the Celtic narratives there are frequent- 
ly passages similar in enero^ and pathos 
to Doctor Johnson's sublime apostro- 
phising language, on landing on the 
island of lona, the cemetery of the 
Kings of Scotland. " We were now 
treading that illustrious island, which 
was once the luminary of the Caledo- 
nian regions; whence savage clans 
and roving barbarians derived the be- 
nefits of knowledge, and the blessings 

• of religion. To abstract the mind from 
all local emotion, would be impos- 
sible if it were endeavoured, and 
would be foolish if it were possible. 
Whatever withdraws us from the 
power of our senses, whatever makes 
the past, the distant, or the future, pre- 
dommate over the present, advances us 
in the dignity of thinking beings. Far 
from me, and from my friends, be such 
frigid philosophy as may conduct us, 
indifierent or unmoved, over any 
ground which has been dignified by 
wisdom, bravery, or virtue. That man 

• is little to be envied, whose patriotism 
would not gain force upon the plain of 

Marathon, or v^hose piety would not 

f;row warmer among the ruins of 

Within the whole compass of the 

English language, there is not a finer 

passage than this striking similitude to 

the style of Ossian, the son of Fingal.

Mr. Urbav, Aug. 1 1. 

THE rural scenery and natural beau- 
ties of the valley of Box, certainly 
deserve the notice of the lovers of the 
picturesque; and is, by Celtic, Roman, 
and Monastic remains, entitled to claim 
the attention of the AntiouarY. It will 
be the chief intention ot this hastily 
written communication, to notice its 
Celtic remains. 

There overlooks the valley of Box a 
brow of an extensive plain, called 
Kingsdown-hill, from the summit of 
which the eye is carried to an im- 
mense distance, both eastward and 
westward. The brow is in shape like 
onesideofan immense artificial mound, 
and in appearance is not unlike a ver- 
tical section of a cone, or it may be de- 
scrilied indeed as being somewhat si- 
milar to the human nose, projecting 
from the lofty plain above, and sloping 
gradually downwards to its base. 

This elevated spot is about five miles 
from Bath (Aoua Solis or Sulis), and 
is nearly in a direct line between this 
city and Abury; not indeed within 
sight of Bath, but directly in view of 
that lofty conical mound-like eminence 
risine above this city on the eastward, 
which is still so singularly called 
" Little Salisbury* or Sulisbury," and 
which probably bore formerly the same 
religious relation to the Temple of Sol 
(Apollo) at Bath, as the lofty eminence 
of Old Salisbury did to the venerable 
temple of Stonehenge in the plain be- 

Caesar says of our ancestors, *' Deum 
roaximi Mercnrinm colunt, hujus sunt 
plorima simulacra,'* and I cannot but 
think, on this brow of Kingsdown-hill 
formerly must have stood one of the 
" plurima simulacra" of Caesar, point- 
ing with his caduceus towards the 
" stupendous and mysterious temple of 
Abury," not merely serving for •• a 
guide over the hills and trackways,*' to 
those travelling from a distance to wor- 
ship at this great temple, but that it

Nicholas HAaoiNos, Esq. Patron of this 
Cfaorcb, Lord of the Maoor, and Recorder 
of KiogftoD, was bom in 1 700| and eilucated 
■I Eton school. Emboed with clasiieal li- 
titMars, celebrated for his Latin verses, 
•ad highly esteemed for bis public and pri- 
inle worth. He died in 1758, in the 58th 
jaw of his age. 

He married Jane Pratt, daughter of Sir 
John Prstt, Chief Juitice of England, and 
sister of Charlee Earl Camden, Lord High 
Chaacellor. She lived to bless his children 
through a long period of honour to hertelf, 
and happiness to them, and died in the 90th 
yaar or ner age. 

Their eldat son, George Hardinob, 
was bom in 1744, alio educated at Eton, 
md an excellent scholar. He was succes- 
sively Sollcitor>geoeral and Attorney-sene- 
nl to the Queen, a Member of the Houw 
of Commons, and Chief Justice of Breck- 
aodc, Radnor, and Glamorgan. Hia elo- 
quence at the Bar and in tiie Senate was 
conspicuous ; and at the Seat of Judgment 
he was dignified. He was active, zealous, 
persevering, benevolent; and by his bceasaot 
exertions, a powerful friend. Adorned with 
Attic wit, various in accomplishmeots, he is 
deeply deplored. He died in 1816, in the 
7<d year of his age, and is buried in this 
chancel, near to his fiarents. 

Another remarkable monument in 
the same Church, is to a cousin of the 
late and present Earl of Liverpool. 
In ibrm it represents a sarcophagus, 
placed under an ancient flat arch, in 
the south wall of the south chancel. 

<( Near this place lie the remains of Lieut.- 
Colonel George Jeukinson, C. B. third son 
of John Jenkinson, Esq. brother of Charles 
first Earl of Liverpool { bom 94th Feb. 
1789, died SI March, 182.3. Early in life 
he entered into the Ro^ral Artillery, and was 
immediately employed ou active service in 
Hdknd. He served five years in Snain 
under the Duke of Wellington, at whose 
recommendation he was promoted to the 
rank of Lieut.- Colonel. Brave, open, and 
generous, he gained the love of his friends, 
and the esteem uf the army. Amidst the 
temptations and vicissitudes of the military 
proraision, he maintained a steady and oni- 
Turm course of Christian conduct, and during 
a loD^ and painful illneM, which terminated 
At0 iiifip, he derived /rom teligion that sup- 
/wr/ mm/ comfort which reUgloix alooc can 

impart, and aoet the awM wwmnuma iridi

confidence in hb Beri^v through Um nserifei 
of the Redeemer, lliie tablet is erected 
to his memorv by his surviving brothers, m 
a testimony of tfayeir affectbn and esteem." 

This Lieut. -Colonel Jenkinaon is 
itated in Debrett's Peerage to have 
been mortally wounded at Talavera in 
I8O9. That appears to have been the 
fate of his younger brother Robert- 
Henry, in Egypt, 1801. His '* sur*- 
Tiving brothers'* are Charles Jenkin- 
aon, Esq. formerly M. P. for Dover, 
and the present Bishop of St. David's, 
the latter of whom is probably the au- 
thor of the foregoing epitaph. The 
former (according to Debrett) is un- 
married ; the Bisnop married a cousin 
of Sir Samuel-John-Brooke Pechell, 
Bart, and has issue, on which, should 
the present Earl of Liverpool leave no 
son, the ancient Baronetcy belonging 
to the Jenkinson family will devolve. 

1 will add a few other modern epi- 
taphs, put up since the publications of 
Bray and Lysons. 

In the Bishop's Chapel is the follow- 
ing memorial to a late worthy incum- 
bent, of whom you gave a character in 
Tol. LXxxvi. ii. p. 184 : 

" Sacred to the memory of the late 
Oeorgi Savage, M.A. many years Vicar of 
this parish cum Richmond, and Rector of 
the united parishes of St. Mary Aldermary 
and St. Thomas the Apostle, in the City of 
London. He was bom 99th of July, 1 760, 
and died on the fi7th of the same month, 
in the year 1816. By the suavity of his 
manners, the serenity of his temper, and the 
natural candour of his disposition, he nined 
the love and esteem of bis numerous fiends 
and connexions; and by his benevolence 
and kind attentions to their temporal and 
spiritual wants, the affection and high regard 
a bis parishioners. He was deeply learned, 
but modest and unassuming ; genuinely 
pious, condescendini^, and unaffected; sin- 
cerely desirous faithfully to discharge his 
pastoral duties { but totally free from all li^ 
temperate xeal. 

<* In testimony of her unfeigned attach-

the much -to- be- lamented loss which she lus

fmw and coastraction of words, is 
most glaringly exhibited. It can bat 
arise from one of two causes* via. care- 
lessness or indifierence, or an absurd 
ambition of being thought eccentric. 
Which of these two motives more ge- 
nerally prevails, I will leave to your 
astuteness, Mr. Urban, to decide. But 
of this I am quite certain, that if it is 
the latter, we are all by nature suffi- 
ciently ^i^ed with that enviable cha- 
racteristic to require any foreign or ar- 
tificial aid. To those who profess to 
tet little value on an intimate acquaint- 
ance with their mother tongue, and 
who view it as unimportant compared 
with aihorough knowledge of the Ro- 
man, Greek, and modern languages, 
may be ceded the credit, if any, of con- 
forming to a very general opinion ; but 
it cannot be denied that they are la- 
mentably deficient in those valuable 
ingredients in the human character, 
cwmmon tenter and a sound judgment 
lite just thinker and risht obser^'er, 
however, will always be itelingly alive 
to the importance of the mother 
tongue, and will not be led away by 
the prevalence of ridiculous fashion, 
or be influenced by a foolish affecta- 
tion of thinking differently from other 
gK)ple. To purify and improve ihe 
nglish language ought to be the ob- 
ject of every true patriot; and it surely 
cannot be said that such an object is 
iinworihy the notice and pursuit of 
ihe man who can conscientiously and 
deservedly bear so honourable a dis- 
tinction. The gross and barbarous 
modes of pronunciation, and glaring 
vulgarisms, which mark the con- 
versation of those to whom the terms 
ignorant and uneducated would not 
be strictly applicable, should be care- 
fully guarded against, and I know of 
no oetier means of eflfecting that end, 
than by pointing out upon paper, to 
those who are in the habit of using 
them, a few of the most common and 
obvious errors and inaccuracies of 
speech by which our ears are so fre- 
quently assailed. 

Thus we continually hear of the 

largeMi half, as if a half could consist 

of any thing more or less than an equal 

moiety of a whole. Bor/h for *• both,*' 

kiiile for "kettle," frii for "get," 

Rume for "Rome," Jemes for "James," 

reasons for " raisons ;" these three last 

errors and others of a similar kind are 

ofientr the result of a fleets t ion than 

%oonnee. Si'/ for " sit, " oiilegisif^ for 

"Migiog/' £dard for ••Edward." 

To ^ away, or letve fm gMd , is a fa« 
vourite expression when leaving a 
place altogether, or giving np anj 
thing entirely, or for ever» \s intendeu. 
The best pari is not aDcommooly sub- 
stituted for the "greater** or the" larg- 
est part," as if the former necesaariiy 
included the latter. Gravarmen for 
"gravamen;** by the way, this latter 
word, which ts synonymous with- 
" gut,** is not to be foaitd in any of 
the editions of Johnson's Dictionary.* 
The Church on Snow-hill, called St. 
Sepulchre's, and the ac^ective mis- 
chievous, we hear pronounced long 
instead of short. Ptni for " point," 
sperils for " spirits." j«/ for "just," 
and toe teas for "we were," are of- 
fences against the King's English com- 
mitted dailv. 

These, Sir, are a few of the ble- 
mishes in conversation, which the most 
casual observer of men and things can- 
not fait to have noticed, and in my 
humble opinion they cannot be too 
strongly and too frequently deprecated. 
Yours, &c. G. W.

In the month of September 18 J Q, 
whilst the workmen were employed 
-in digging out the soil of a field called 
Palace Field, in this city, for the pur- 
pose of forming a basin for the Canal, 
a considerable number of remains of 
Roman pottery, of various forms and 
sizes, together with some hand-mills, 
apparently used for grinding corn, a 
^lass vessel of a square shape, inclosed 
in lead, and containing ashes, and a 
variety of other curiosities of a similar 
nature, were brought to light. But the 
most remarkable discovery was made 
by one of the workmen striking his 
snade against a coarse earthen urn, 
aoout two feet from the surface, which 
was broken by the collision, and proved 
to contain above 7OO silver Roman im- 
perial coins, in the finest state of pre-

period at which any Law Treatise was 
written. If we may credit the san- 
guine testimony a( some old chronolo-

two books upon the Laws of the Bri-

After the Conquest, Henry II. com- 
piled a treatise * on the Common Law 
and ** Statutes " of England, divided 
into two lomes, and entitled, 1. '* Pro 
Republic^ Leges ;" 2. •• Statuta Rega- 
lia.^ The next works that we have 
are in the reign of Henry III. 1. 
Bracton's Tractate. S. Gianville de 
Legibus. And we have a few other 
Treatises before the Year Books, which 
commence in the reign of Edw. HI., 
some of which, though broken, yet of 
the best kind, are in the library of 

The 6rst Law Book was Littleton's 
Tenures,t probably published by the 
learned Juage himself, at the press of 
J. Letton and W. Machlinia, anno 
148 1,{ resno Edw. IV. This edition 
has no title, numerals, or catch-words. 
The type is barbarous and broken ; and 
the text is crowded with abbreviations. 
Of ihis edition there are supposed to be 
Jfve copies; 1. in the Public Library 
at Cambridge ; 9. in the Library of the 
Inner Temple; 3. in Earl Spencer's 
Library ; 4. in the possession of Mr. 
Johnes; 5. in the Library of the Right 
Honourable Thomas Grenville. There 
is a fine copy in the King's Library at 
the British Museum, and which was 
undoubtedly printed at London by Let- 
ton and Machlinia, as will be seen 
upon a reference to a note subscribed 
at the end. 

The next edition was probably that 
of Machlinia, who was then living 
at Fleet Bridge, according to a note 
at the end. The letter in this edition 
is less rude, and more like the modern 
English blackletter than the letter used 
in the former edition. The different 
chapters or sections commence with a 
blank space for the illumination of the 
capital letters, which is printed in a

The editions by Pyntoo are five in 
number, 1st. folio, 15 16; Sd. daod€>- 
cimo, 15S5; 3d. sextodecimo ; 4th and 
and 6th, folio, and without dates. 

Sir Edward Coke,* Dugdale,t and 
Bishop Nicolson, % conjecture that 
the first edition was "at Rouen in 
Normandy, by William de Taillier, ad 
instantiam Richardi Pinson, the printer 
of Henry VIH. ;'* and that it was first 
printed about the S4tb year of Henry 
VH I. anno 1633. But the fact of the 
former edition being printed bjf Letton 
and Machlinia, who were printers in 
the reign of Edw. IV. fully shows the 
precedence, in point of time, to be due 
to their joint impression. 

It is important to remark that there 
are at the Public Library two ancient 
manuscripts § of the Tenures extant in 
the University of Cambridge. The 
first is imperfect at the beginning, and 
in the chapter on warranty. It is writ- 
ten on vellum. The second is on paper, 
and only the second leaf is torn. This 
MS. has the following passage i — IsU

I am induced to hope that some of 
the Correspondents of the Gentleman's 
Magazine can throw further light upon 
this interesting subject. Such inqui- 
ries are always productive of advantage

The Anglo-Saxon King Eilgar is as 
notorious in history as Jupilet in uiy- 
ihology, for deluding pretty girls ; and 
we make no doubt bui thai he came 
to the nunnery al Wilion, if not for 
plunder of ihii kind, at least for an 
ocular treat, probably for both. Upon 
Ihe King'* visit, }rUrud {Wulftida), 
ibe orphan daughter of a knight, was 
pul 10 read ihe TeifOQ usual during re- 
fection. Her voice was " myeldc and

The girl, who has 

tin given 10 her, whether juuly 

or not, of being alarmed for her mo- 
deaiy, leiMit a nun"* veil, and appew- 
ed in this disguise. The subterfuge 
(for nuns were shorn) could noldeceive 
the amorous Monarch, who had ito 
doubt before noticed her hair ; and ex- 
claiming, " How soon jou have been 
made a nun!" he lore off the veil, the 
maiden stubbornly resisting. Malmei- 
bury will then have it, that allhougfl 
she was " cubili regio subaeia, pariu 
explicito voluplflii frequentanda: non 
inhxsit; sed dolult petius et sprcvtt, 

bratur.''* As, however, the King 
was subjected lo seven years" penance 
for his oulrage; and imetcourie was 
thus ptcvenied, a virtue might have 
been made of neeesiiiy. However thi* 
be, it is quite usual for women, disap- 
poinled in love, to turn devoieei ; aud 
she returned lo Wilion wilh her daugh- 
ter Edith, who becomes the heroine of 
this history. Such i high station she 
ap|>ears to have well deserved, accord- 
ing to the notions of those timei, with 
the exception of a natural feeling of 
her high birih, and a feminine vanity 
of wearing fine cloihei. When Saitil 
Klhelwold reproached her for it, she

judged of men by their consciencet^ 
or, as our author says, by their actions, 
not their clothes, and being somewhat 
of a blue, she quoted Augustine, in 
proof of pride lurking under mournful 
filth, "insordibus luctuosis." "Where- 
fore 1 think (she proudly and royally 
added, with a pertness unusual in re- 
gard to a Bishop,) that a mind may be 
as uncorrupted under these golden rai- 
ments, as under your tattered pilches,*** 
For so we translate sub discissis pelli- 
hus. Our author says, (p. 30) that 
*' every mon desyred to see her semely 
ffikce, so that we may also conclude 
lier to have been pretty. Now it is 
well known that children brought up 
in monasteries with the purpose of 
being made monks or nuns, were so 
trained as to be fit for no other station. 
Her mother WoUrud took care to edu- 
cate her accordingly, probably with a 
•elfish object, that she might never be 
obliged to part with her ; and we are 
told that how Edith might have been 
Queen of France (p. 31), but would 
not, because her mmd had been so 
-deeply religionized. After premising 
that ne (from the original Saxon heo, 
ilia,) is throughout this poem used for 
she, we shall now give the successive 
details of her history. Every night 
after matins, " he chasteyssede hur

This work was menial attendance on 
her sister nuns, and even the poor and 
beegars, the nuns very prudently con- 
sidering that subjection to such offices 
tended to abate presumption through 
high lineage; and our author stating, 
that in so doing she only imitated 

" Martha or Mary in herr soyng. 
To I'hu, Ooddis sone, Kyag of grace." 

She became by this means very popu- 
lar; and due advantage was not for- 
gotten to be taken of it by sundry 
thieves, who solicited her, when con- 
demned, to obtain a pardon for them

from her royal father, which she often 
did I and our author adds, ^* led them 
from the gallowi.'* From hence our 
author proceeds to her amusements, 
which consisted of taming *'wyld 
bestes and folys (fowles) of flyght,** 
who would come, stand still, lye down 
at her call, and feed out of her hands. 
Of these her favourites were doves, be- 
cause they represented the Holy Spirit, 
though a particular regard was also ex- 
tendi to ravens, on account of the 
prophet Elias. (sic.) Among her ac- 
complishments were harping, singing, 
writm^, painting, workmg silk, em- 
broidering, inlaymg ^old on it, mak- 
ing tunicles, ana chesibles, embroider- 
ing mantles (copes) with gold, setting 
mitres with gems, and carving and 
paintine images ; all which she would 
do for the church only, not " fader ny 
brother.'* All these works she did, 

** FuU sotelyche w*owte ony wothe ;" * 
making any clamour of it. 

From hence our Chronicler pro- 
ceeds to her "v'tuose worchyng.'' 
This consisted in imposing upon her- 
self penance, delightmg to read and 
sin^ '''over her boke," fasting much, 
eatmg little, never failing to rise at the 
nightly service, lying on a hard board, 
instead of a bed, " ryght well ydyght,*' 
and wearing a hair chemise under royal 
clothing of a purple gown embroidered 
with gold outside, over the black dress 
of the order. All this, however, she 
could bear to lose with temper, for her 
maid having carelessly blown out a 
light, a snuff fell into the wychef 
(chest) where the clothes were kept, 
but " she set not by that leste a mote,'* 
possibly for the following reason. It 
so happened that a mantle furred with 
^rey, escaped undamaged, and this 
event beins magnified into a miracle 
which God had done for her, might 
have contributed to her equanimity. 
Miracles notv began to pour down fast 
upon her. A cunning rogue called 
Dan Benne, Canon of Treves, and 
one of her teachers, told her that there 
was in that monastery a "particull of 
a nayll " of one of those with which 
our Saviour was fastened to the cross. 
A particull of this particle, Edith and 
Woltrud her mother were anxious to 
obtain, and sent Dan Benne over to

Palgnve's Parliamentary ff^riU. FoL, IL 

(Continued from p. 188.) 

Mr. PALGRAVE observes, in his 

'* The saveral bandies of proxies coDt»in 
onlj one executed hj a temporal peer (part 
i. p. 267 1 no. 80,) but that one it of consi- 
derable importance from the fiurtt which it 
ettablUhet, viz. that a Peer might consider 
himself as bound to attend Parliament, al- 
though his name does not appear amongst 
the persons summoned ; and that he might 
appoint individuals not possessing seats in 
Parliament, as bis proxies, to appear on his 
behalf in that assembly.*' 

The Peer to whom this record al- 
ludes was John de VVarrene, Earl of 
Surrey, and his name does not appear 
in the writ of summons. The session 
was fixed for Nov. 1 6, but the Earl 
dates his letters patent, in which he 
appoints his proxies, from **Cha8tellon 
en Gale," on Nov. 28. He therefore 
was abroad, and could not be present. 
The writs of spiritual proxies seem to 
show that the permission to appoint 
these was only consequent upon ina- 
bility to attend ; for that the Peers were 
bound to come, is beyond doubt. In 
1233 the King summoned all his Earls 
and Barons to a Parliament at Oxford, 
but they refused ; and he ordered legal 
inquiry to be made by what means lie 
could compel them to attend, and it 
was judicially resolred that they should 
be summoned a second and a third 
time, ihat proof might be obtained 
whether they would come or not (M. 
Paris, p. 325, ed. Watts); and it is 
certain that all were expected to at- 
tend who were not abroad, or lived at 
a great distance, or were »ick ; for the 
hhtunan /lanicularizes the^e causes of 

exception, in a general Parliament of 
1248. (p. 6^.) Various instances in 
the work before us also show that sum- 
monses were not issued, as to persons 
who were abroad, but that they sent 
proxies instead ; and that they who 
were summoned unwillingly to attend 
public business were in the habits of 
transferring themselves ** minus pro^ 
ffidi, says a writ, to distant parts." 
(See our author, p. 43 or 4) ; and it 
further appears, that when the King 
was at Berwick in 131 1, he sent orders 
to one spiritual lord and four temporal 
peers to attend the Parliament, as 
charged with an especial message from 
himself (Apiicnd. p. 36), one of whom 
(John de Grey), not the others, is 
omitted in the writ of summons. (Id. 
p. 37*) Yet he was a Peer of Parlia- 
ment, and had been previously sum- 
moned (see the body of the work, pp. 
85, 37.) It is accordingly plain that 
the writs of summons are very loose 
documents, as to the proof whether 
Peers attended Parliaments de jure or 
de facto i for the omission might merely 
imply neglect, or an intimation from 
the Crown that their presence was 
not desired. 

With regard to the EarU (an oflTi- 
cial rank in early times), the attend- 
ance of them in Parliament seems to 
have been more indispensable than 
that of the Barons; for Matthew Paris, 
speaking of a Parliament held in 1242, 
says, that all the Earls were present, 
and almost all the Barons, ad manda- 
tum regis. — p. 615. 

We have read, as every body else 
has done, that representation, as to 
the Commons' house, grew out of de- 
legates deputed to act for the minor 
tenants in capite. But it is very fiossi- 
ble that the representation of the peo- 
ple was far more ancient than sup- 
posed, and was connected with the 
convocation of the Clergy in a lower 
house. In the year 1 187, when Henry 
the Second was King, the Commons 
was collectively styled populus, and 
classed with the lower house of convo- 
cation, thus, *' convocato clero regni et 
populo." (M. Paris, p. II9.) That 
both these bodies must have acted by 
representation, is clear ; and that they 
were (both bodies) summoned upon 
extraordinary emergencies in the time 
of Henry III. is also plain, from the 
same author, who uses the like phrase 
in other instances; as in the Parlia- 
ment of Westminster in 1215, "prae^

We are sorry to see that the liberal 
•tate of modern society has had such 
resnlu, as to bring flirtation at least, if 
not worse things, into vogue. In 
other respects he seems to have de- 
served the hospitality shown to him. 

The book contains various pictures 
of life in all iu motley forms. VVe 
shall extract a passage relative to the 
itinerant Jews, because we believe 
that the information will be novel. 

<«How is it poBslbIa (uud I) that so 
mux of your penuasion wftlk about tha 
stnets crviqg ' Old clothes !' yet manage to 
get a liveUko<}d bv it ? ' Tia but a toanty 
ona, indeed (said he) ) and theia are many, 
I assure you, who are half starving. They 
follow this odling because they sre brought 
i]|» to no particular trade.' 

" I remark a trait in thtm (said I) which 
is very prominant; that is, I have never 
Been a Jew beggar. *OhI yes, they do 
beg sometimes (said he), but never of 
Christiana ; and as soon as they can scrape 
up a shilling or two» they buy scissars, pen- 
eds, &c. &o. and if they can eet twopence 
or threepaDoe a day, tfaiey prefer it to beg- 

*' You have almshouses then (said I) for 
your poor and superannuated ? * None, 
(said he) ; but those persons who are so old 
as to be unable to work, and are without mo- 
ney, go to the priests, and state their dis- 
tress, which is immediately investigated; 
and if they are considered deserving, are sent 
oflF to the Rabbi (a high priest), who im- 
mediately gives a regular allowance, from ten 
to twelve shillings a week, out of a fund sup- 
ported by voluntary contributions for this 
particular purpose. Mr. Rothschild always 
gives an annual donation of five hundred 
pounds, and the rest of his family contribute 
very handsomely to it.' 

** I asked him if his priesU followed any 

business. ' Sometimes (he replied), but 

they are generally paid very handsomely, 

and are not necessitated to do so. The 

JUhblnceiveB ooe tbousaod a year, and on 

no account enters into any BMieantUe tran- 
saction. The other priests in onOnaiy re- 
ceive from one to three hmdrad* so that 
there is no great reason for their engaging 
in any other callmg." 

The young men, among other fol- 
liesy have adopted the custom of wear- 
ing wigs ; and though disguise might 
have rendered one necessary to our 
paeudo- mendicant, we do not think 
that otherwise he would have exhibit- 
ed an;^ dislike to the sillv actions of his 
juvenile brethren. Hisolack wig hav- 
mg become too invalided for service, 
he gave it to a methodist preacher, who 
had hitherto worn one of a different 
colour, " a very ugly red one.'* 

<< James taking op a small lookine-glass in 
his lefr hand, and a pocket coi^b in his rieht, 
combed out all the friz, and nut his hair 
perfectly straight over his forehead, telling 
me he snould only use my wig on Sundays 
and holidays; so that James would have 
the pleasing variety of a carrotty top in the 
week days.' 

The reader will find many amusing 
matters in these volumes, free and mi- 
litary indeed, but not ill-natured. 

The author, we are assured, is a gen- 
tleman of family and of properly, mov- 
ing in the best circles ; and the close 
personal inspection of low life by such 
an individual, cannot fail to he as pi- 
quant as it is new. There is too much 
of the amorous spirit of Don- Juan- 
Troubadours hip, (the character as- 
sumed) in the Journal ; but some al- 
lowance ouzht to be made for a young 
man of fashion (not more than 20) 
placed in so novel and so exciting a 
situation; and though scandal is al- 
leged, there are few anecdotes in the 
book which do not rebound to the 
honour of the parties, either as cha- 
ritable, hospitable, or amiable persons.

final deslruclion of the seats of Pa- 
pistry and Islamisin may be realized in 
a manner which may teach them that 
there is a wide diflference between na* 
tural philosophy, and that which is 
Tain deceit. 

That the thermometer does not sink 
below a certain point (we believe from 
memory 480* however deeply we may 
descend into the bowels of the earth, 
it a phenomenon noticed by Darwin* 
and we are inclined to think that a 
certain portion of heat is necessary to 
preserve the crust of the earth in ad- 
nesion. It has been, therefore, pre- 
sumed that a subterranean fire, of 
which volcanic craters are the safety- 
valves, is continuously in action, and 
that by generating earthquakes, and 
elevating the bottom of the sea, it has 
produced those marine appearances 
which are so discoverable npon the 
present surface of the land. The proof 
of this is the identity of the fossil shells 
on the coasts of the Mediterranean and 
other seas, with those which are now 
in the same places subaqueous. There 
are further phenomena* which seem to 
show that accretions on the earth*s 
forface have caused changes of climate 
by preventing in places the develope- 
ment or expansion of subterranean 
heat, as by Button's chasms; for if 
the solar rays never penetrate more 
than ten feet deep, and Newton and 
La Place are correct in presuming that 
there has never been any change m the 
earth's axis, we do not think the mere 
clearance of woods, and drainage of 
marshes, a sufficient agent for so stu- 
pendous a change. Certain it is that 
the fossil flora of our coal deposits 
yields the most extraordinary evidence 
of an extremely hot climate in our own 
island ; and if this had been the pure 
result of external agency, how could 
the mere tertiary formation have ef- 
fected a change ? Mr. Lyell says as to 
the fact, 

«The remains both of the animal and 
iregetable kingdom preserved in strata rf 
dijfertni ages^ indicate that there hat been 
a great diminution of temperature through- 
out the northern hemisphere in the latitudes 
now occupied by Europe, At ia, and America. 
The change has extended to the arctic cir- 
cle, as well aa to the temperate zone. The 
heat and humidity of the air, and the uni- 
formity of the climate, appear to have been 
most remarkable, when the oldest strata hi- 
iherto discovered toere formed. The approxi- 
mat!oa to m climMte simikr to that now en- 
Jeyed ia tb^e Utitudes, does noi commence 

tUl the mra rfthefarmMikms termed terHetrift 
and while fAe different tertiary rocks were 
deposited in suceessionf the temperature seems 
to have been still fbrther lowered, and to 
have contioued to diminish gradoally even 
after the appearance of a great portion of 
existing species upon the earth.'* — p. 103. 

Thus it is plain that the climate has 
changed with the successive incmsta* 
tions. Mr. Lyell (c. vii.) assigns the 
cause to transpositions of the sea and 
land ; but, according to the passage ex- 
tracted, the changes have been chrono- 
logical, and consequent upon the /er- 
tiartfformalion. As to the Vulcanists 
and Neptunists, Mr. Lyell thus settles 
the question^ by admitting the agency 
of both: 

'*We may divide the great agents of 
diaage in the inofganio world into two 
principal classes, the aqueous and the ig- 
neous. To the former belong riven, tor- 
rents, springs, currents, and tides ; to the 
latter, volcanos and earthquakes. Both 
these classes are iostrutnents of decay, as 
well as of reproduction ; but they may also 
be regarded as antagonist forces. The aquc' 
out agents are incessantly labouring to re- 
duce the inequalities of the earth's surface 
to a level, while the igneous on the other 
hand are equally active In restoring the un- 
evennees of tfaie external crust, partly by 
heapbg up new matter in certain localities, 
and partly by depressing one portion and 
forcing out another of the earth's envelope." 
—p. 167. 

Bolh these systems, we think, as 
acting in coparceny and aliernation,are, 
correct. It must be palpable that gra- 
nite rocks could not be capable of sup- 
porting animal or vegetable life, to the 
extent of the plan of Providence, and 
yet they may be necessary as the crust 
of so large and heavy a body as our pla- 
net, containing in lU centre a furnace 
or chemical elaboratory for supporting 
the action indispensable to the exist- 
ence of the planet itself. With regard 
to a central fire, the objection that 
combustion cannot act without air, is 
apoarently strong; but we know that 
caloric is independent of combustion, 
because heat can be created by only 
the admixture of two salts, and in the 
artificial volcano inflammation ensues, 
under well-known and amusing pro- 
cesses, where there is no contact with 
atmospheric air.- Without recourse, 
too, to this well-known chemical leger- 
demain, it is evident that nitre has the 
property of condensing in itself an enor- 
mous quantity of atmospherical air, and

Here we must leave this truly valoA- 
ble Work, with the conacioutneti that 
otir narrow limits can no more give a 
fair representation of it, than that of a 
city on a map does of its real conse- 

IIm wliol* hmnaii nee, and ai»niitailes all

Which dissolves the globe itself. From the 
Egyptians also they derived the doctrine of 
the graduml debasemeiil of man from a state 
of innocence. Towards the terminatioB of 
wich seim, the gods eonld no longer bear 
yfhk the wickedness of men, and a shock of 
the elements or a dehige overwhelmed them, 
after which calamity Astrea again descended 
OB the earth to renew the |^den age."-— 
p. 9. 

Gigantic as may appear modem vol- 
canic operations, they are quite insig- 
nificant, compared with those of for- 
OBcr times. The Giants' Causeway in 
Ireland is nothing more than a column 
•f basaltic lava, caused by some an- 
cient volcanic eruption ; and we may 
judge what must nave been the tSect 
of one of them, from that of Skapta 
Jokul in Iceland in the year 1783. 

" It filled up rivers firom 4 to 600 feet 
deep» and spread Itself over allnvhtl pitins in 
brMd lakes of fire, from It to 15 miles 
wide, ud 100 feet deep. It completely 
dried up the river Skapta, and when ang- 
tnented by new sappHei flowed up the coofm 
«f the river to the hiot of the hills, whence 
the Skapta takes lu rise. What wonld peo- 
Dle thtak of the bed of the Thames being 
filled up ? and yet that miffht happen, were 
Engfatnd a volcanic conatry/' 

Our author gives us the follbwing 
ingenious representation of the oouse- 
queuces of such an eruption in Eng- 

** Let us imagine the termination of the 
Skapta branch of lava to rest on the escarp- 
ment of the inferior and middle volite, where 
it commands the vale of Gloucester. The 
great plateau might be one hundred feet 
thick, and from ten to fifteen miles broad. 
We may also suppose great tabular masses 
to occur at intervals, csppinc the summit 
of the Coswold bills between Gloucester and 
Oxford, by Northleach, Burfbrd, and other 
towns. The wide valley of the Oxford clay 
would then occasion an interruption for 
many milss ; but the sante rocks might re- 
cur on the summit of Cumnor and Shotover 
hills, and all tlie other volitic eminences of 
that district. On the clialk of Berkshire, 
extensivs plateaus six or seven miles wide 
would aeaiu be formed ; and lastly^ crowning 
the highest sands of Highgate and Hemp- 
stead, we might behold some remnants of 
the deepest parts of the current five or six 
hundred feet in thickness, rivalling or even 
surpassing in height Salisbury orags and Ar^ 
thur's seat."— p. »76.

THE final Number of this uncom- 
monly beautiful work, contains viewl 
in Gloucester, Rochester, Chichester, 
Wells, Bristol, Norwich, and Here- 
ford. We regret to see it is the /fnaZ 
Number, for some of our Cities have 
not had any share of attention, and in 
others numerous fine subjects have been 
passed over without notice. 

It would indeed have given us great 
pleasure to find that the encouragement 
received had induced the author not 
only to enlarge the present work, but 
to appl]^ his ulents and experience in 
illustration of the '' ancient castles, 
monastic edifices, churches, chapels, 
and mansions, of almost endless va- 
riety, beauty, and grandeur,** which 
still remain unillustrated. But we re- 
gret to observe the following passage 
in the Preface, which we &ar suffi- 
ciently accounts for the omissions we 
have above noticed. 

the Ca- 
procress, I pro- 
pose to terminate my topographical labours ; 
but hope to see the subject taken up by 
some other person equally zealous in the 
cause, and better qualified to do it Justice. 
It will further augment my pleasure, to 
find the public come forward liberally and 
promptly to patronise such works. If the 
govemnsent of the country, and some of the 
pnbtio institutions which were founded for 
the encouragement of learning and talenty 
were to appropriate onlv a very small por- 
tion of their respective nmds to reward au- 
thors and artists for their labours and ex- 
penditure, in bringing forward publications 
of sterling worth and merit, it would soon 
be found that there would neither be a lack 
of talent, nor of industry. Unfortunately 
for the literary character, and even for book- 
sellers, the sources now referred to, instead 
of fostering and encouragingy?/ie and expend 
sive books, levy a tax upon them by the im- 
perious impost of ELEVEN COPIES. The au- 
thor of the present vr>Iume has been com- 
pelled to ^'w— to offer up at the shrine of 
injustice and extortion — no less than twelve

Rbvibwv— Mackintosh's History of BngUmd, 


A wtolent reTolotioo of natore annihiUted 
thwr incipient creationt, and thmr remains 
eonbined with other substaocet to increase 
tiM stones of the earth. In the various 
■oeeessive periods, appeared the mollusca, 
the iislics, the amphibioos animals, all of 
gigantic size ; nad all, after living their ap- 
pointed period, were destroyed, and their 
raowins employed, as tlie materials of addi- 
tional surface ror the advancing earth. The 
mammalia of the waters, sea-horses, sea- 
lions, whales, and their whole kindred, form- 
ed the next step of the progression. The 
violent motions and agitations of the waves 
dettrojed these also, that they might add 
their huge carcases to the inanimate surface 
of the earth, which now attained that state 
in which it seat up vegetation adapted for 
the support of the land. Nature now put 
fiwth her strength in the production of the 
aonatrotts megatheria, mastodons and mam- 
moths, whose remains excite our wonder 
and our curiosity. This race too, after 
having possessed the earth for an indefinite 
period, saw its appointed end come : the 
waters rose once more, and involved them, 
like their predecessors, in the clay, sand, 
and gravel, which they swept along ; but no 
rocky stratum was, as with the former gene- 
rations, the result : and the sandstone, 
gypsum, clay, and other substances, in 
wnich the remains of thu creation are 
Ibund, occur only in spaces of limited extent. 
The violent revolutions of the earth were 
now at an end : the races of animals, such 
as at present occupy its surface, appeared : 
and last of all, Man, the perfection of Na- 
ture's works, entered on the scene of hia 
future destinies. But the violent powers of 
nature had not yet ceased to operate; and 
tradition retains the recollection of at least 
one great destruction of animal life by 
water. * — p. 3. 

It will be seen by our review of Mr. 
LyelPs Geology, that a similar sub- 
mersion is reasonably prospective with 
regard to a very large portion of Ame- 

Dr. Lardner*s Cabinet ETtcydofktdia. — Hif- 
tory of England. By the Right Hon. 
Sir James Mackintosh. Fbl. I, Post 
Hvo. f)D. S8S. 

Tilk talents of Sir James Mackin- 
tosh are so justly and deeply respected, 
that a strong interest is necessarily ex- 
cited with regard to any work which 
such a distinguished writer may think 
fit 10 undertake. In the present in- 
stance, as in all others, our expecta- 
tions are fullv gratified. The facts can- 
not be novel, but they may be stated 
io a superior manner ; and more satis- 
factory elucidation may render thiak- 
wg a/ier perusal mote jmi and correct. 

There is something, too, very favour* 
able to such elacidation, in the nature 
and studies of a profound lawyer and 
judge. He does not expatiate for mere 
enibellishmeni, nor does he infer with* 
out indisputable e\'idence. He begins 
at the foundation, and proceeds up- 
wards at the superstructure; whereu 
philosophers do not draw always de- 
ductions from the contemporary states 
of mind and feelings, but, as we may 
so say, judge of Gothic Cathedrals bj 
the rules which only belong to Grecian 
temples. But there is a geology in 
history, and we like to have a sound 
knowledge of the progressive strata. 
We must here stop, oecause we have a 
long extract to make, and are sincere 
lovers of old English, as well as old 
England, and think with Sir James 
Mackintosh, that it has not been im- 
proved by being marble-painted with 
Greek and Latin. It has enfeebled it; 
and there are many things which are 
thus spoiled by commixture. The ac^ 
centuation of our ancient language, 
with its numerous consonants, might 
have been as unmusical as the growl- 
ing of a bear, but then the animal fur- 
nished good meat. Our present mis- 
cellaneous language is merely a sau- 
sage ; it may indeed be a German one, 
but the original was a Westphalia 
ham — a better thing. 

** Origin of the English Language, ^c— 
From the Anglo-Saxons we derive the names 
of the most ancient officers among ns — of 
the greater part of the divisions of tne king- 
dom, and of almost all our towns and villagee . 
From them also we derive our language ; of 
which the structure, and a majority of its 
words, much greater than those who have 
not tboucht on the subject would at first 
easily believe, are Saxon. Of sixty- nine 
words which make up the Lord's Prayer, 
there are only five not Saxon ; the best ex- 
ample of the natural bent of our language, 
and of the words apt to be chosen by those 
who speak and write it without design. Of 
eightT-one words in the soliloquy (rf* Ham- 

let, tliirteen onlv are of Latin origin. Even 
in a passage of nine^ words in Milton, 
whose diction is more learned than that of 
any other poet, there are only sixteen Latin 
words. In four verses of the authorized 
version of Genesis, which contain about a 
hundred and thirty words, there are no more 
than five Latin. In seventy-nine words of 
Addison, whose perfect taste preserved him 
from a pedantic or constnuned preferenee 
for any portion of the language, we find only 
fifteen Latin. In later times the langnage 
has rebelled against the bad tasle of ihoee

indolence, imperfect meins of infor- 
■nation, or interested motives. 

In this sense, the present Life of 
Loftl Byron may be called a rash book, 
iiiicc it sets forth many new and bold 
things, not only in opinion, but in 
fact. Disdaining to administer to pre- 
conceived notions, or to prejudices of 
pny kind, Mr. Gait seems resolved to 
avail himself to the full, of the ad- 
▼aotages arising from his intimacy with 
the poet, and uom other means of in- 
formation in his power; and to care 
little for the outcries of those rival- 
biographers of Byron, who may now 
become his critics, provided he can 
produce an honest account of that 
great man's actions, and a fearless esti- 
mate of his mind. Lord Byron, in- 
deedf is a dangerous subject for a me- 
moil': whoever undertakes to write 
about him, should gird on his armour, 
for he has entered on a kind of war- 
fare ; a fact of which Mr. Gait must 
be, by this time, aware ; for it is quite 
certam that no history of the noble 

E>et that may be worth reading, can 
il of provoking hostility from some 
quarter or other. The present work 
Bas accordingly been attacked vehe- 
mently: nothmg, indeed, was more 
easy to see, the moment it appeared, 
than that it could not by any possibi- 
lity pass without notice, which it has 
bad in more than usual abundance 
both of praise and blame. No one, 
however, has called the volume an in- 
sipid one ; all have been eager to read 
it, and the fulness and genuineness of 
its statements connected with the inci- 
dents which marked the poet's event- 
ful career, have never been questioned. 
But in speculations as affects charac- 
ter, and in inferences from facts, not 
to mention occasional eccentricities in 
style, Mr. Galt*s book has ^ivcn rise to 
much disputation ; and in some of 
these particulars, thoug^h we respect 
his boldness and ingenuity, we should 
incline to break a lance with him our- 
selves. This, however, is not the place 
fordiscussions on abstract points, wnich, 
to be pursued propeilv, &nould be pur- 
sued deliberately anci at length ; and 
we must therefore content ourselves by 
pointing out to the young reader such 

Sualitics in the present Life of Lord 
lyion, as may enable him not only to 
comprehend more fully the narratives, 
descriptions, and allusions in the noble 
poet's works, but, above all, to steer in 
Mjf'/^ through the seductions and dan- 

gers which too often beset that indivh. 
doal who may be tempted to read 
without distinction. Of these qualities, 
the former will be found in the minute 
account (^iven of the incidents of Lord 
Byron's life (particularly of those which 
occurred during his travels abroad), 
and of the personages, native and fo- 
reign, with whom he became acquaint- 
ed, and who have, as it were, sat to 
the poet as studies of character ; while 
as regards that which, to use a medical 
phrase, may be termed the di$ii\fectitig 
properties of the biography, we may 
allude to those interesting exhibitions 
of the mental character of Lord Byron, 
which show that the disregard of moral 
proprieties which, unfortunately, are 
too common in his poems, was the off- 
spring of an unhappy state of mincf, 
followed by remorseful thoughts. Con- 
sidered thus, Mr. Gait's volume should 
invariably accompany the collected 
works of^ihe poet, to the mischief of 
some of which it would act as an ai»- 

The following very characteristic i in- 
cidents, connected with the death and 
funeral of the noble poet's mother, arc 
a key to those wayward impulses of al- 
ternate pathos and borlesqae which 
exist so remarkably in *' Beppo*' and 
"Don Juan.'* The affected indif- 
ference of Byron at the sight of the fu- 
neral, was but a desperate effort tu un- 
burthen himself of a load at his heart 
which he felt to be insupportable ; and 
so was his subsequent sparring-match 
with the servant. But all would not 
do. Nature would not be repelled ; 
and the bereaved son, overcome with 
anguish which only grew the stronger 
the more he opposed it, was forced to 
yield, and seek the solitude of his 
chamber that he might give way to his 

" In the mean time, while busily cn- 

Saged in his literary projects with Mr. DbI- 
u, and in law affairs with his agent, he was 
suddenly summoned to Newstead by the 
state of his molher's health : before he 
reached the Abbey she had breathed her 
last. The event deeply affected him; he 
liad not seen her since his return* and a pre- 
sentiment possessed her when they parted, 
that she was never to see hun again. 

" Notwithstanding the violence of her 
temper, and other defects in her conduct, 
her affection for him had been so fond and 
dear, that he undoubtedly returned it with 
unaffected sincerity ; and from many casual 
and incidental expressions which I have 
heard him employ cooceming her, I am

saoM year is notioed, < Satarday, Sept. 99, 
the "AriUr, Capt. CrayUm, lately arrived 
from the Uland o(Aiceniian, has brought in

which have been sold at a very high price. 
It mar be noted, that which it common in

ODCO more, in the tame publication for 1754, 
we read, < Saturday, July 13, the Right

not) that the Corporation of London, 
when a dinner was given to the Allied 
Sovereigns in 1814, offered 1000/. for 
a turtle, there being then none to be 

This work, we need not say, is most 
satisfactorily executed, and abounds 
with interesting and instructive matter. 

Resources qf the United Kingdom, or the pre- 
sent Distresses considered; their Causes 
and Remedies pointed out; and an outline 
of a Plan fir the estahliahmeni of a Na^ 
tional Currency, that vmtld have ajixed

man. Captain in the Royal Navy, 8vo. 

IN regard tonrticiesof indispensable 
consumption, nothing can create dis- 
tress in ihexendor hut ihe supply ex- 
ceeding the demand; a result which 
easily ensues from abundance of raw 
inatcrial, capital, and workmen, divi- 
non of labour, and machinery. It is 

needless to \nirsiw the tfuism to its 
consequences, which amoant only to 
these, that a roan cannot pay because 
he cannot get, nor employ becaose he 
cannot sell. The only remedies are 
suspension of production, or better 
market, of whicn the former only may 
be possible. The interval may occa- 
sion severe suffering, because hundreds 
live from hand to mouth. To rem^ly 
this state of things, Capt. Pettmati pro- 
poses the establishment of a National 
bank, and creation of paper by it, con- 
vertible into stock bearing interest, so 
as to give it a ne^ociable valne. Mr. 
Pettman is a very ingenious man, and 
it is certain that Governments lending 
money upon goods (t. e. in humble 
English^ turning pawnbrokers), under 
a contract in the borrower to repay the 
same with interest, is an old and suc- 
cessful mode of relief, practised Jin/ we 
believe b]f Tiberius, and occasional ly, 
under similar circumstances, ever since* 
The remarks and suggestions of Capt; 
Pettman well deserve attention; but 
entertaining, as we do, the greatest 
doubts concerninff the practicability, 
or even wisdom of forcing a trade, we 
decline committing ourselves. Gluts 
and inundations are of similar charac- 
ter; both suspend business, and both 
cure themselves, but never without in- 
jury, and often absolute ruin, where 
incomes arc contingent. The remedies 
proposed by speculators are generally 
as inefficacious as it would be to bring 
up fire engines, pumps, and syringes, 
to exhaust a flood ; which cannot be 
removed but by excision of the feeding 

The Oxonians ; a glance at Society. By the 
Author of the Rou^, 3 vUs, 8uo. 

PA LEY says, that seduction is a 
fraud of which the injury is threefold ; 
1st. to the woman, who suffers the 
pin of infamy, the loss of her charac- 
ter, and generally of her moral prin- 
ciple; 2. to the family; 3. to the pub- 
lic, who lose a valuable member of so- 
ciety. Some writers have gone further 
than Palev, and class the criminality 
with murder, on account of its virtual 
consequences. An exhibition of these 
consequences in various ways, forms 
the moral object of this novel ; and so 
well aretheypourtrayedyihnt we shudder 
with horror ; and warn all parents 
a^^ainst laxity of vigilance, because 
" ubi lubido dominatur, innocentias 
Icve pra^sidium est."

beaotifnl work ranget in size with Batty'e 
Viewt.— -The Plates are to be engraved by 
the first artists, from original sketches by 
Capt. Robert Elliot, R. N. The first nam- 
ber is a fiivourable specimen. It contains, I . 
Hnmaioon's Tomb at Delhi j «. Tii Blahal, 
a splendid edifice at Agra; S. Tiger IiUnd, 
nt the mouth of the river Tigrb, near Can- 
ton. The interest of Europeans in British 
ImSa, u rapidly on the increase! It is so 
rich in natural sceneij, as well as in dbtin- 
guished specimens of oriental architecture, 
as pagodas, temples, palaces, forts, &c. 
that £b present work, in the able hands to 
which it IS entrusted, and the agreeable size 
in which it is executed, cannot &il to be 
auccesflful. The descriptions are entertaio- 
faig, and written with considerable spirit. 

Landscape Illustrations of the Pfaverley 
Nooels.—Tht Fifth Number of these Illus- 
iratioos contuos four beautiful gems of art. 
The first is St. Mary's Abbey, by Prout ; 8. 
Holy Loch, by J. D. Harding; 8. Both- 
well Castle, by Reinagle ; and 4. Peel Castle, 
by Gastineau. The whole are engraved in 
his most finished manner, by £• Finden. 
To praise this work is now unnecessary. It 
is universally known, and cannot fiiil to find 
•II admirer in every one who inspects it. 

Part IV. of PompcicuM, brSir W. Gill, 
has plates equal to the three preoediug 
numbers. Plate 53 is a very elepmt apart- 
ment— -the Fountain of Shells. Two other 
Plates consist of Pictures of Infant Her- 
cules bathed in the Styx, and Theseus and 
Ariadne i both beautifully grouped. Piste 
81 is a curious representation of a Waggon 
tar conveying Water. Behind are two fi- 
gures with cantharse, or Ull narrow pitchers, 
one of which is being filled by a {ripe from 
the waggon. 

Select Fiews of the Lakes of Sco!land,Jrom 
Paintings by John Flemings and engraved h/ 
Joseph Swan; tvith historical and descriptive 
Jltustratiuns, by John M» Leighton, Esq.-—' 
The same trio of ulected individuals, in 
their various departments, who produced so 
beautiful a volume illustrative of the '* Views 
on the Clyde,'* have in this work again 
combined to favour the public with a work 
mi the " Lakes of Scotland." The first 
Number cimtains three Plates of Loch-Lo- 
Mood, ami these uc accompanied with a 

very foil description. The Plates are highly 
beautiful ; the points of view are picture»qBe 
and happily selected, and the prints are exe- 
cuted in the highest style of line engraving. 
Each part will be illustrative of one, or two, 
of the principal Ukes. Tho whole will be 
eoesprized in about a dosen Numbers { and 
the present work will form an excellent 
oonpanion to the ** Views on the Clyde." 
It b highly deserving of eooouragement. 

The PanoraflM cf Switterland, as viewed 
fion the summit of Mont Righi, is an ad- 
mirable specimen of art. The views were 
drawn from nature by H. Keller, and en- 

Saved by J. Clark. They embrace the 
ountains of the Schwarxwakl, or Black 
Forest, Gothard Pass, Jura Mountains, Lake 
of Lucerne, and other bterasting scenes of 
that wiU and romantic country. To thie 
Panorama a companion is appended, embeU 
Ibhed with a circular view of the country^ 
by General Plyffer» and comprising a de- 
scriptive account of Mont Righi, and of 
the celebrated prospect obtained from ita 
summit. ■ 

We have been fitvoured by an eaily peep 
at the Illustrations of the mtUer's IVrcatk 
far I8dl. They will be found equal to any 
of the predecessors of thb popular annual. 
The following real views are truly beautiful : 
Dove Dale, by Barber (the most interesting 
of the set) i Interior of Antwerp Cathedral, 
by Wiki{ Delos, by Linton (an exquisite 
gem^ ; and Cologne, by Austin (equally 
good). Sacred subjects: a good copy of 
Wcsrs Three Maries at the Tomb of Christ ; 
the Deluge, by A« Mosses ; and St. Cecilia, 
who b a fine woman, but dressed too gaily, 
fitter for an earthly drawiug-room rather 
than the heavenly choir. Two beautiful 
rustic subjecu are. The Cottage Farm-yard, 
bv Barker ; and a Peasant and her child, by 
Weaull. The Bandit's Home b a fine view 
of a Swiss ravine. Two Female Heads, an 
<* English Flower," and « U Hu^rfuoa de 
X^on," by Messrs. Harmves and Leversege, 
complete the series. All the Plates are ex- 
quisitely engraved. 

We have seen a specimen of the " Re-* 
membraneer," a new annual, edited by Mr. 
Thomas Roscoe; and we can confidently 
say, that if the embcllishmenu of the forth- 
coming volume be equal in design and exe- 
cution to **the Orphans," by Rolls, and 
** Mont Blanc," by Fenner, there can be 
little doubt of its success.

Foreign News, — Revolution in the Netherlands^ 


Alto given a great banquet, to nrhich De 
Potter and the other Belgian exiles, iirid 
Pr. Bowring, were iiivUcfd. Among llie 
toaslBwas, ** The English nation, ihauks 
for their generous exeitioiis, and peace 
and union with thero for ever." 

During some late disturbances in Paris, 
a great deal of machinery wai destroyed 
by the workmen, whose rage appeared 
to be particularly directed against the 
nachinet used for printing. In the 
printing-oflice of M. Taillard several 
were destroyed ; and at M. Selligue's 
the mob broice to pieces a sieam print- 
iiif^ machine which cost 30,000r. 1'hey 
went next to the office of the Canstitw 
Hameif for the purpose of destroying the 
printing machines ; but it being repre- 
sented to them, that the journal, which 
was their best friend and advocate, could 
not appear if thus ir^ured, they desisted. 

On the Sd of September bodies of 
Journeymen printers went to the nfliices 
of several journals printed by machinery, 
and demanded that they should be 
printed with the ordinary press, in order 
to employ a greater number of hands. 
Several of the papers were, in conse- 
quence, temporarily discontinued. This 
violent opposition to machinery has at 
length subsided, and the journeymen 
have returned to business. 

There have been disorders at Nismefy 
arising, it would appear, out of contests 
between the partisans of the Jesuits, and 
their opponents ; the character of this 
commotion was so serious, that troops 
had been marched to Ni»mes. 

The Report of the Commission ap- 
pointed to investigate the charges against 
rbe ex-ministers, for si^cning the ordi- 
nance of the 25 lb of July, has been 
published. They are represented to be 
^ilty of high treason, and those who 
have been taken, and now confined to 
ike castle of Vincennes, will immediately 
be brought to trial. 


The late Revolution in France has 
begun to produce its effects in neigh- 
bouring nations. A tremendous explo- 
sion has taken place in Belgium, which 
we sincerely hope will be allayed with- 
out any serious political oonvuliilon. It 
is generally known that the Belgians 
have never been sincerely attached to 
the Dutch government, under which 
they were placed in consequence of the 
overthrow of Buonaparte, and henee it 
was concluded that the Revolution in 
France might be followed by some 
movements in that country. On the 
S4th of Aug. there was an article in the 
Oovernment paper published at Brolfels 
wbicb spoke of the happiness enjoyed 

by the Belgians ; this appears to have 
irritated the public mhid. On the 
evening of Wednesday the $5th, a mob 
assent bled and attacked the h«iu8e of ilie 
editor of Le National, After breaking 
into tlte house, the mob proceeded to gut 
it of every \\ung it contained; paper, 
presses, types, furniture, every thins: 
was seized and scattered into the street. 
They afterwards broke the windows of 
the Court of Assiie, and destroyed the 
furniture, &c. of the Director of Police. 
By this time the town was in an uproar, 
and the troops got under arms. The 
crowd next went to the Hotel of Van 
Maanen, the Minister of Justice (who is 
very obnoxious) ; they ransacked it and 
set it on fire, repulsing the soldiers and 
firemen who attempted to save it. 
During the night arms were seiied at 
various places. In this state affairs 
continued till day- break on Thursday, 
when the streets were filled with drunken 
people, parading about, some armed 
with guns, and others flourishing naked 
sabres over their heads. About six 
o'clock in the morning the military 
commenced firing upon the populace, 
and many fell. The resistance of the 
people was very determined. In many 
places the royal arms were pulled down. 
As the morning advanced the Burgher 
Guard be^n to make its appearance ; 
there was evidently a disinclination in 
the military to fire on the citizens ; 
and ultimately there seemed to be a 
mutual agreement that they should re- 
tire to their barraeks, and leave the care 
otthe city to the Burgher Guard. About 
three o'clock In the day, the ancient 
standard of Brabant, red, orange, and 
black, was displayed on the Town Hall, 
and detachments of the Bnrgrher Guard 
carried it about the streets. — ^The whole 
affair seems to have taken place without 
premeditation. It would appear that 
the King of the Netherlands is not ge- 
nerally unpopular ; he is a man of good 
sense, and good feeling ; but some im- 
prudent prosecutions instituted against 
certain popular journals, followed by the 
banishment of ibe conductors, turned 
the tide against him and his Ministers. 

Early on the morning of the S7th, the 
principal citizens Joined the officers of 
the Civic Guard in the barrack of the 
Annonciades. They called for arms, 
which were given them, and in a short 
time patroles of the Burgher Guard were 
organized, and appeared in the streets. 
They interposed between the combat- 
ants, and relieved several posts which 
were occupied by the flreraen and the 
troops of the garrison. A proclamation 
of the Magistrates was distrrbnted and 
posted up, anivoucvcxix^ l\x« abolition of

Nothing decUive hai yet been effected 
In the Peninsula. The Spanish Cou- 
stUotionalists have been gradually as- 
sembling on the Pyrennean frontiers, 
and the government authorities, in full 
eipectation of the meditated blow, are 
every where on the alert. The Consti- 
lutionalists have published a " Mani- 
festo," of considerable length, fully de- 
tailing their views and otijects. It main- 
tains that one of the fundamental prin- 
ciples uf the ancient laws of the king- 
dom, authorises Spaniards to combine 
iind take up arms against the King when 
he shall abuse the power mhich those 
laws declare ** was given him only for 
the public good ;" or when he shall for- 
get the obligation imposed on him, in 
the words of the law, of being *< more 
watchful of his people's welfare than hia 
own.*' The manifesto, upon this point, 
adds, that there is not in Spain a mure 
ancient and authorised custom than such 
a rising of the people to repress dedpo- 
tisro, when it infringes on the national 
liberty. In many instances, it sa)r8» 
have the Spaniards, acting upun that 
principle, dethroned their King, and 
placed the kingly power in other bands 
The manifesto declares that << the Di* 
reeling Junta of the Insurrection" has 
constituted itself, for the present, a Pro- 
visional Regency, on the ground that 
the King, being in the power of a (ac- 
tion that rules bim, is incapable of go- 
verning. It is enjoined that the Re- 
gency shall be solemnly proclaimed 
throughout the kingdom, and that all 
the authorities, civil and military, shall 
obey it, until the National Congress shall 
have assembled. 

In Portugal numerous arrests have 
taken place, and the greatest constern- 
ation has prevailed, since the affairs in 
France have become known. Don Mi- 
guel has been compelled, by the British 
government, to restore the merchant 
vessels which had been captured off Ter- 
ceira by the Portuguese blockading 
squadron, the commander of which lias 

been dismissed the service in disgrace. 

The Albanians have been for some 
time in a state of open rebellion against 
the Porte i and from all accounts the 
province may be considered as lost to. 
the Turks. A communication from Bel- 
grade, dated Aug. 7, states that the 
grand Viaier has been guilty of the most 
barbarous treachery. When be arrived 
jir JBitu^lia he felt convinced that he 
gl/oa/J aMtJiin his object with difficulty 
^udshwly by force of arm?, and had 

recourse to stratagtm. With this view 
be sent messages to all the Albanian 
ebiefs with the declaration that he had 
come to Bitoglia by order of the Porte, 
with a commission to listen to the com- 
plainu of the Albanians and to satisfy 
their just demands, and he therefore in- 
vited them lo come in person to Bitoglia. 
In consequence of this invitation, a great 
number vf them immediately s«t out (or 
Bitoglia. accompanied, by way of pre- 
caution, by an escort of 5000 men. On 
their arrival they were permitted to 
make their escort encamp at the gates, 
and the Grand Vizier gave the chiefs an 
audience; after listening to their de- 
mand, which was the payment of A(teen 
millions of Turkish piastres, he de- 
clared that they had only to wait a short 
time at Bitoglia, till the arrival of the 
sums placed at his disposal by the go- 
vernment. The Albanians being thus 
made easy, had already waited fuur days, 
when the Grand Vizier sent them wurd 
uue morning that he was going to re- 
view his regular troops, aoiuunting to 
15,000 men, aud that he invited them 
to be spectators. Tbe Albanian cliiefs 
suspecting nothing, went to the place at- 
tended bya» escort of 400 men only, when 
during the evolutions they were suddenly 
surrounded by tbe Turkish troops, and 
massacred to tbe last man. After this 
dreadful carnage, tbe troops marched 
against the escort of the Albanians, en- 
eamped ^w tbe other side of the town, 
which immediately took flight. But as 
tlie Grand Viiier had caused all ihe 
roads to be previously occupied, a very 
small number of Albanians escaped the 
sword of the Turks. 


Tunis, -^M^. 10. Count de Larocho- 
foucault, sent by France to Tunis with 
extraordinary powers, has concluded a 
new treaty with the Regency of Tunis, 
of which the following are tbe principal 
articles: 1. Henceforward full and en- 
tire liberty is to be enjoyed by the com- 
merce of all nations, and the Dey will 
cease to levy the monopoly which he ex- 
ercised formerly. 2. The cession of the 
island of Tabarca to France. 3. No tri- 
bute is to be paid henceforward. 4. The 
Turks now emploved in military service 
are to be sent back to their country. 5. 
If a vessel belonging to any nation what- 
soever be shipwrecked on the coasts of 
Tunis, if a sailor or a passenger be assas- 
sinated or ill-treated on the above coast, 
the Regency will be obliged to pay tbe 
value of the vessel and of its cargo. 6. 
Piracy is prohibited, and in case of war 
with any power, the Tunisians will have 
no right to attack merchantmen. 7. 
The slaves shall be restored to liberty.

Domeitie Occurrences, 

mob of hnatn and otben Mseiubled, and 
cut down the banks. They were indicted for 
felony under Sir R. Peel'i Act, but were ac- 
quitted, under the directions of Judge Parke, 
on the ground that, as the embankment 
stopped the water, and occasioned the in- 
jury to the lands above, they were a nui- 
sance, which the occupiers had a right to 
■bate. He added likewise, that the com- 
missioner had exceeded the powers given 
him by the act of parliament in making this 
new drain and embankment. In conse- 
queuce of this decision, the poor people 
and farmers of the Otmoor towns enter- 
tuned a notion that the act of parliament 
was void ; that the inclosore and sJl the pro- 
ceedings under it were illesal; and that 
they had a right to destroy the fences, and 
lav the whole open as it was originally. 
They assembled, therefore, on Saturday 
night, the 98th of August, in large bodies, 
and began breaking and cutting up the 
fences and hedges. These proceedings 
"were continued every night for a week. 
The rioters, who were often disguised, were 
Joined by people fr<Mn the neighbouring vil- 
lages, and their numbers at some times 
amounted to more than a thousand; and 
the greater part of the fences were destroyed 
to a very great value. Many ]>ersons were 
assaulted and wounded, particularly a son 
of Sir Alexander Croke, who went to pro- 
tact his father's property, and was left for 
dead. All attempts of the civil power being 
found insufficient to quell them, the assist- 
ance of the miliury was called in. The 
Oxfordshire Yeomanrv Cavalry, under Lord 
Churchill, and the Duckin^hamshire Yeo- 
manry Cavalry, under the Marquis of Chao- 
dos, lent their ready protection, and the 
rioters were stopped iu their proceedings. 
About forty were taken prisoners on uie 
moor, and carried in waggons to Oxford, 
escorted by a detachment of Oxfordshire 
Cavalry. On passing through St. Giles's 
(where an immense number of persons had 
assembled to enjoy the festivities of a fiiir, 
similar to tliat of St. Bartholomew) the mi- 
litary were attacked in every direction ; brick- 
bats, stones, and bludgeons were hurled at 
them without mercy. The soldiers were de • 
termined to secure their prisoners, and the 
mob were determined to release them. The 
military liad rather the advantage till they 
turned down Beaumont-street, which, from 
St. Giles's, is the nearest way to the county 
gaol. Here they were forced to give way ; 
and the prisoners during the conflict effected 
their escape. A detachment has since been 
sent down by government; and many of the 
rioters have been apprehended. 

Sept, 15. The interesting ceremony of 
opening the Manchester and Liverpool Rail- 
way took place this day. Ic was rendered 
^Dore splendid and imposing by the presence 
of the Duke of WelJiogtoa and many dis- 
$wgui§hed indrndutli, whom the Directors 


'Itad invited. The concourse of spectators 
at each end of the line was immense. The 

Erocebsi(»n left Liverpool twenty minutes 
efure eleven o'clock drawn by eight- loco- 
motive engines, the first of which was the 
Northumbrian, with the Directors and nu- 
merous distinguished visitors, including the 
Duke of Wellington. The other engines 
were the Phoenix, North Star, Rocket, 
Dart, Comet, Arrow, and Meteor. The 
carriage iu which the Duke of Wellington 
and his friends travelled, was truly magnifi- 
cent. The floor was S<2 feet long by 8 
wide, and was supported by eight large iron 
wheels. A grand canopy, 34 feet long, was 
phuied aloft upon gilded pillars, contrived so 
aa to be lowered in passing through the 
tunnel. The Northumbriam drew three 
carriages, the first containing the band, the 
second the Duke of Wellington and the dis- 
tinguished visitors, and the third the Di- 
rectors. The Phoenix and the North Sur 
drew five carriages each ; the Rocket drew 
three ; aud the Dart, Comet, Arrow, and 
Meteor, each four. The total number of 
persons conveyed was 779. On issuing 
from the smaller tunnel at Liver|>oul, the 
first engine, that is, the Northumbrian, 
took the south, or right-hand line of rail- 
way, while the other seven engines proceeded 
along the south line. The procession did 
not proceed at a particularly rapid pace- 
not more than 15 or 16 miles an hour. In 
the course of the journey, the Northum- 
brian accelerated or retarded its speed oc- 
casionally, to give the Duke of Wellington 
an opportunity of inspecting the most re- 
markable parts of the work. On the arrival 
of the procession at Parkside, (a little on 
this side of Newton) the carriages stopped 
to take in a supply of water. Before start- 
ing from Liverpool, the company were 
particularly requested not to leave the car- 
riages, and the same caution was repeated in 
the printed directions describing tne order 
of procession. Notwithstanding this regu- 
lation, however, Mr. Husklsson, Mr. Wm. 
Holmes, M. P., and other gentlemen, 
alighted from the carriage of the Duke of 
Wellington, when the Northumbrian stopped 
at Parkside. At the moment they descended 
into the road, three of the engines on the 
other line — the Phoenix, the Nortli Sur, 
and the Rocket, were rapidly approaching. 
Mr. Huskisson aud Mr. Holmes were stand- 
ing in the road between the two lines of 
railway, which are about four feet distant 
from each other. Unluckily, Mr. Huskisson 
imagining that there was not room for a 
person to stand between the lines while the 
other engines were passing, made an attempt 
to get i^ain into the carriage of the Duke 
before the Dart came up. He laid hold of 
the door of the carriage, and pulled it open 
with so much force that he lost his balance, 
and fell backwards across the rails of the

Obituary.*— 7*Ae Duke de Bourbon, 


, The most remarkable AflTain, in the 
campaign of 1799 and 1793| in which 
theae three illustrious heroes performed 

Srodigies of valour, were the hatiles of 
ockrim, Pforts^ Barbelroth, Berstheiin, 
Weissembun^, and Haguenau. On the 
Prince of Cond^ commanding a charge 
on the Tillage of Berstheim, where the 
republican armies were concentrated in 
great force, his son the Duke of Bour- 
bon, at the head of the second and 
third division of cavalry, made a charge 
on the enemy's cavalry, and drove it 
before him. Impelled by the ardour of 
the moment, the Duke rushed forward 
with only a few followers, when the Re- 
publicans, taking advantage of the cir- 
eumstance, immediately surrounded him. 
The contest was 
bloody, and the 
Duke was severe- 
ly wounded ; but 
the rest of his . 

troops coming up, the enemy took to 
flight, leaving their artillery in posaes- 
aion of the Royalists. 

The Duke de Bourbon commanded 
the cavalry in his father's army, wiih 
distinguished honour, from 1 792 to 1796; 
but Austria having made peace with 
France, the troops of the Prince de Condtf 
passed in 1797 into the service of Russia. 
The following letter from Louis XVII 1., 
dated Verona, June S4, 179&> will show 
the estimation in which the services of 
the Duke were held : 

*' MoN COUSIN, Je suis fort sensible k la 
part que vout prenez k roa juste douleur ; elle 
en adoucit uo peu I'amertume. Je suis bien 
sfir que vous combattrez pour moi comme 
vous avez corobattu pour le feu Roi, mon 
seigneur et seveu* ; mais j'esp^ que ce ne 
sera pes au m^me prix ; vutre sang est trop 
pr^ieux pour I'Eut et pour moi, pour que 
je ne ddsire pas vivemeuc qu'il plaise I Dieu 
de IVpargner. Comptez tuujours sur I'estime 
et Tamiti^ v^riubles avec lesquels je suis, 
roon cousin, votre tr^-affeetionn^ cousin, 
^ •« Louis." 

After the campaign of 1800, we be- 
lieve the Duke de Bourbon accompa- 
nied his father to England, as he was re- 
sident at Wanstead House in E«sex, at 
the time of the murder of his son in 
1804. Ill a letter from Wanstead House, 
dated Feb. 3, 1805, addressed to M. 
Saini-Jacques, private secretary to the 
Duke d'Engbien, he feelingly adverts to 
this atrocious affair, f which appears to 
£ave blighted all bis happiness : 

r • Louis XVlT 
f The following bold assertions re- 
Jst/re to tbe execution of the Due 
d'Engbien, are extncted from Barry 
^'Afears's Journal: — Buonaparte in- 
/ Barry O'McAra, (bat Prince Tal- 
^ retained a iecter wrilteu by 

** Apr^ le malhenr cruel dont j'ai iU ac- 
eabl^, roon cher Jacques, je ne pouvais 
^rouver d'adoucisseroent mieox seoti k ma 
vive douleur que de toiu savoir vons-m^ine 
hors de danger, vous qui ro^tez, I tons 
^anls, la confiance et Tamki^ de ce cher 
eafirot que je jpleurerai tonte ma vie. Les 
lames me sunoquent, ei je ne me sens pas 
la force, en ce moment, mon cher Jacques, 
de parler affaire avec vcius. M. de G>otye 
veut bien se charger de cette p^ible com- 
mission. Vous pouvez prendre con6ance en 
ce qu'il vous dira de ma part, et vous con- 
former ponctuellement aux ordres qu*il vous 
transmettra, tant de la part de moo p^re que 
de la mienne. Croyez, roon cher Jacques, \ 
mon cnti^re confiance et bien sincere amiti^ 
ponr vous." 

<BS^(^. ^ ^'--^ 

On the restoration of the royal family 
in 1814, the Duke returned to France, 
where his life was passed in comparative 
retirement until his death. 

The obsequies of the Duke de Bour- 
bon took place on Sunday Sept. G ; the 
relit^ious ceremonies were performed at 
St. Leu. Their royal highnesses the Dukes 
d'Orleans and de Nemours, Prince de 
Joinville, and Duke d'Aumale, a number 
of Peers, Deputies, General OlTicers, and 
persons attached to tbe suite of the 
Prince, assisted. Tbe procession set out 
from St. Leu for St. Denis. Tbe Ist re. 
giment of hussars, a battalion of (he 
5ih of tbe line, and the national guards 
of St. Leu and neighbouring communes, 
led the procession, which was brought 
up by a troop of the national guards, the

Admiral Sir H. Nicholls. 

jl^g. 17. At Clifton, CO. Gloucester, 
In bis 72d year. Sir Henry Nicbulls, Ad- 
miral uf the White. 

This distinguished officer embraced 
the naval profession wbeu quite a child \ 
and may be truly said to have been 

" Bora on the wiadi, tad cradled in tke storm." 

His seal, perseverance, and abilities, 
during a l<»ng and arduous service, raised 
bim to the highest rank and honours of 
his profession. 

Subsequent to the war with the colo- 
nicSf this officer commanded tbe Echo 
sloop, on the Newfoundland station. On 
the 1st Dec. 1788, he was promoted to 
the rank of Post-CapUin, and soon after 
appointed to the Ampbion frigate, sta- 
tioned at Jamaica. During the Russian 
armament in 1791* he served as Flag- 
Captain to the late Hon. J. U Gower, 
in the Formidable of 98 guns, which ship 
was pat out of commission in tbe au- 
tumn of the same year. 

At the commencement of hostilitiei 
against France, in 1793, Capt. NlehoUs 
was appointed to the Royal Sovereign, a 
first-rate, bearing the flag of Admiral 
Graves, in the Channel fleet ; and on the 
memorable 1st June, 1794, when that 
officer was wounded, his place was ably 
supplied by Captain Nicfaolls, who bad 

the happiness of eootributing in a very 
eminent degree to tbe success of this 
brilliant encounter. Tbe Royal Sove- 
reign was among the first ships in ae- 
tioii, and at its conclusion was at tbe 
bead of eleven sail of the line, well 
formed, and in pursuit of fourteen of the 
enemy's ships, when tbe last signal was 
made by Earl Howe for his fleet to close. 

In this battle tbe Royal Sovereign bad 
14 men killed, and 44 wounded. Capt. 
NieboUs's conduct was specially notioed 
by tbe commander-in-chief, in bis puUie 
letter ; and be wu one of those officers 
to whom George the Third ordered a 
gold medal to be presented. 

The wound received by Admiral Graves 
causing him to retire for a time from 
aetiva service. Captain Nicbolls com- 
Bsanded tbe Royal Sovereign as a private 
ship until the spring of 1795, when he 
was removed into the Marlborough, of 
74 guns, where he continued until tbe 
period of the mutiny at Spithead, which 
created a considerable degree of alarm 
throughout the kingdom. On this oeea- 
sion the Marlborough's crew committed 
the most daring outrages, and evinced a 
spirit of disaffection in a greater degree 
than that of almost any other ship. 

In the summer of 1801, when Sir 
Charles Morice Pole was sent to relieve 
tbe late Lord Nelson In the command 
of the Baltic fleet. Captain Nicbolls ac- 
companied that officer, and continued 
with bim during tbe remainder of the 
war. In 1809 he was appointed one of 
the Commissioners of the Board of Na- 
val Inquiry, and afterwards Comptroller 
of the Navy \ which latter office, howe- 
ver, be enjoyed bat a short time. 

Capt* Nicbolls was advanced to the 
rank of Rear-Admiral in 1807; Vice- 
Admiral in 1810; Admiral of the Blue 
in 1895; and Admiral of the White in 
1880. He was also, for a short time, 
Comptroller of tbe Navy, which be re- 
signed, and on tbe SOth May, 1820, was 
elected a Kniglit Commander of tbe 
Bath. Sir H. Nlcholli:, though a strict 
officer, was still admired and respected, 
not more for his uniform leal, perseve- 
rance, and ability, than for bis escellen 
disposition, which displayed tbe kindest 
heart of a rough seaman in all bis deal- 
ings with mankind.

AoarTottloD, July 18, 1795* He after* 
wardt lenred ai mate of the tigDaliy on* 
der the immediate eye of Sir John Jer* 
via* bj whom he was made a Lieotenanty 
and appointed to the Peterel iloop, July 
a»1796. In Dec. following, Lieut. Stainea 
landed on the coast of Corsica, took poe- 
■emion of a martello tower, and threw 
the fun, a long brait IS-pounder, over 
apieeipice into the aea. The Peterel 
waa at that time eommanded by the 
Hen. Philip W(»dehou8e» and tubie- 
quently by Lord Proby. In June 1797, 
Lieut. Stainee obtained permifuon from 
the latter officer to attack a French pri- 
vateer, which had violated the neutraii* 
ty of Tuscany by taking forcible posses- 
sion of several merchant-vessels. Two 
boatS) containing twenty ftfficersand men^ 
beiAg placed under his orders, he suc- 
ceeded in carrying her, after a sharp 
conflict, in which ftve of his party were 
wounded. On this occasion he was per- 
aonally opposed to the French comman- 
der, who died soon afterwards in eonie- 
quenoe uf his wounds. The vessel thus 
taken mounted two long guns and seve- 
ral awivcls, with a complement of 4& 

la Sept. 179B, the Peterel, then at 
Gibraltar, under the command of Capt. 
l^iS^7» ^'^ charged with diipatcbes 
from Earl St. Vincent, to be landed at 
Faro on the coast of Portugal, for the 
Lisbon packet. In the execution of this 
service, Lieut. Staines had a very nar- 
row escape ; the Peterel's Jolly boat, in 
wliich he was proceeding to the shore, 
being upset by a heavy sea near the bar 
of Faro, by which accident four men, in- 
cluding the pilot, were drowned, and 
himself and the only other survivor ex- 
poaed to the most imminent peril for 
upwards of four hours. 

On the 18th of the following month, 
the Peterel was captured near the Ba- 
learic islands, by four Spanish frigates. 
It was fortunately re-taken the next day 
by the Argo ; but Lieut. Staines and the 
crew were carried off prisoners, first to 
Cartbagena, and then to Malaga. Their 
escort used ihem with great severity, 
and Lieut. Staines received a sabre 
wound on the wrist. Having been re- 
turned to Gibraltar, a court martial was 
held, and after acquittal they were all 
retnrned to the Peterel. 

The Peterel was then under the eom- 

jvaod of Capt. George Long, who after- 

wardtfell Mi Elbdf on the 3fi Feb. 1799f 

/fe WM9 §upeneded by Capt, F. W. Aus- 

ten* with whom Lieat.Stdnct eontimMd 
as first Lieutenant until Oet. Ifl follow- 
ing. During this period he was present 
at the capture of three French frigates 
and two brigs of war i also of an armed 
galley, a transport brig laden with brass 
guns and ammunition, and twenty mer- 
ehnnt vessels, most of which were cut 
out from the enemy's harbours by boata 
under his own directions. 

In May 1799> the Peterel was sent to 
Inform Lord Nelson, then at Palermo 
with only one line-of-battle ship, that a 
powerful fleet from Brest, having eluded 
the vigilance of Lord Bridport, had 
paued the straits of Gibraltar. On hia 
arrival off the north-west end of Sicily* 
the wind being easterly, Capt. Austen 
despatched Lieut. Siaiues with the im- 
portant intelligence, overland to the ca- 
pital, where he arrived at nine o'clock 
in tile evening of May IS, having per- 
formed a Journey of lit least 84 miles in 
two hours and a quarter, notwithstand- 
ing the road was very bad, and bis horse 
so little used to such great exertion that 
it died the following morning. For his 
very aealous conduct on this occasion, 
Lieut. Staines received Nelson's personal 
thanks. He soon after became third 
Lieutenant of his Lordship's fleg-ship, 
the Foodroyant 80, and was ever after- 
wards kindly noticed by the great naval 
hero. In the Foudroyant, Lieut. Staines 
assisted at the capture of two French 
Rear-Admirals, Perr^ and Decr^s, Feb. 
18 and March 30, 1800. 

After Nelson's departure from Leg- 
horn for England, June 1800, the Fou- 
droyant received the flag of Lord Keith, 
under whom Lieut. Staines served as 
signal officer during the whole of the 
Egyptian campaign. The superior me* 
dal of the Turkish order of the Crescent 
(or more properly speaking, of the Star 
ami Crescent) was presented to him for 
hia services at that memorable period. 

On the 3d l>ec. 1801, Lieut. Staines 
was appointed to act as Commander of 
the Romulus troop-ship, during the ill- 
ness of Capt. John Culverhouse ; and io 
her we find him employed conveying a 
detachment of the 54ih regiment from 
Alexandria to Malta, where he rejoined 
the Foudroyant, Jan. Of 180S. 

On the I5th May following, Lieut. 
Staines was promoted by Lord Keith 
into the Cameleon brig ; and during the 
remainder of the short peace. Captain 
Staines was employed keeping op a com- 
munication between Malta and Naples; 
but immediately on the renewal of hos- 
tilities with France, he entered upon a 
series of services much more congenial 
to his enterprising spirit.

Obituary. — H^Uiam Pearson, Etq. 


nkanry Cavalry, and brother to tbe Rer. 
Edward Pearson, D.D. lata Matter of 
Sidney Sutiex CoUefe, CarobridKe, a 
lexrned, piout, and exemplary diTinr. 

Mr. Pearson was distinguished for those 
essential qualitiri which adorn the cha- 
racter of mtn, and which deservedly 
conciliate tbe esteem of friends, neigh- 
bours, and acquaintance. A kindness of 
disposition and an urbanity of manners 
formed so prominent a feature in all hit 
thoughts and actions, as not only to 
mollify and control the harshness of 
hit professional duties, hut to make even 
these subservient to the claims of friend- 
ship and benevolence. Throughout life, 
his integrity was unimpeached, his sen- 
timents liberal and enlarged, bis social 
qualities attractive, his love for litera- 
ture and the fine arts refined, and his 
attachment to the cause of liberty, both 
civil and religious, firm and consistent. 
The virtues and excellencies of this ami- 
able man are thus feelingly and accu- 
rately pourtrayed in the following beau- 
tiful sonnet, from the }>en of the " Bard 
of Woodbridge : " 

««To W. P. 
If genuine love of freedom, testified 
Alike by words and deeds; if sterling 

Pure taste, directed by intelligence. 
And candidly to liberal arts applied ; 
Jf, with such high acquirements, be allied 

A heart replete with true benevolence; 

Who will assert I have not just pretence 
To call their owner " friend'^ with ho- 
nest pride? [stniiii'd 
None would dispute it, might I, unre- 

By scruples, which but add redoubled 
strength [length. 

To. all I feel, inscribe my name at 

Cust what it will, that cherish'd name 

shall be [not by me. 

Honoured, rever'd, and lov'd, but alter'd

teetent Intelligenoery Domettic end Fo- 
Ttign/' of Feb. 8, 1680 ; end eDj person 
having one to dispose of, would be hand- 
eomclj remunertted. It eonteins the fol- 
lowing estrsct, which the present hntd 
Grimston, Member for St. Allmn's, is 
■ittious to possess : — " We leern from St. 
Alben*s, that the town having notice that 
their two late Members designed to come 
down from London thithef) and Judging it 
might be some expeooe and trouble to them^ 
called a HsU the day before, and imme- 
diately proceeded to elect them, at which 
time some of. the principal persons in the 
Borough collected about 40/. wherewith 
they treated the poorer sorts of the inha- 
bitantSy and ihea sent word to their two 
Burgesses that they had already chosen 
them for thtf succeeding Parliament^ and 
would not put them to the inconvenience 
of a journey thither.'* The Members were 
Thos. Pope Blount, esq. of Tittenhanger> 
and Samuel Grimstou, esq. of Gorharobury. 

H. H. G. says, *<The Thos. Frank, in- 

auired after in p. 194, appears to have been 
be Rector of Cranfield, co. Bedford ; he was 
also Archdeacon of Bedford, end Preb. of 
Lsagford Manor in Lincoln Cathedral. He 
was succeeded in the above-mentioned Rec- 
tory in 178 If by his son.-— It is probable 
the register in question was a transciipt 
made by Thomas Frank ; for the gentleman 
alluded to above was only 6'8 years of aae 
at the time of his decease in 1731. He 
was buried in Cranfield Church." 

J. T. says, ** In your Magaxine for De-

Of %U VoliiV^ md GoUkm Book of Genoa. 


as the extinction of Patrician families 
iu all countries seems much more npid 
than that of Plebeian houses; and in 
Genoa, no less than S56 noble families 
had become extinct between the years 
1528 and l634 ; nor has the rarage of 
time been discontinued since thai pe- 
riod. The D'Oria name is now re- 
doced to few persons, and thoie not in 
Genoa ; and the Grimaldi name waits 
only for the decease of the present 
Marquess Luigi Grimaldi, to become 
extinct in Genoa, Indeed the rapid 
extinction of our own noble families 
in England (the number having been 
above 100 in the rt\ffn of George III.)t 
shows thst the majority of them are 
not destined to have a descent, either 
numerous or of long duration. 

These remarks must not be construed 
to extend to that feudal nobility who 
derive titles from possession of land ; 
since it is evident there can be no ex- 
tinction of such dignities, and for want 
of proper officers to investigate and re- 
cord such titles, it often happens that 
families continue the use of them after 
they have sold the fief conferring the 
title, and aAer it has been assumed by 
the new purchaser ;* and the purchase 
of a fief, even with the clause of re- 
demption, confers the title appendant 
to such fief. But the old noble fa- 
milies of France, Italy, and Germany, 
do not consider the owners of titles de- 
rived from feuds or land fiefs, or even 
new creations of personal nobility, as 
entitled (generally speaking) to a rank 
or consideration \n any degree similar 
to what is claimed by the old nobility ; 
and the public opinion coincides tn 
this estimate, by treating the one with 
deference, and the other with indif- 
ference. At Vienna, Rome, and Turin 
(the seats of the Courts), the old Nobi- 
lity hold little (if any) intercourse with 
the new Nobles. 

It has been already remarked that 
the four great families of Genoa are 
the D'Orias, the Griroaldis, the Spi« 
nolas, and the Fieschi. It is remark- 
able that the last of these families 
should have sought refuge long since 
in France, and that branches of the 

* Shice writ'iog tbis lentence, the news- 
papcrt have mentioned that the Roman no- 
bility, after the fiill of Prince Polienac, de- 
tired the Book of Fiefs of the Church of 
Rooie to be tearched, to see by what riglit 
hs vsed the title of Prince, though his right 
mu atver questioDed during his prosperity. 

first three should have sought an asyhim 
ill England. Of the D'Orias,— D^Oria: 
Marquess of Spineto has for some years 
resided at Cambridge, and has two 
sons at that University ; Andrew Adair 
D'Oria, of Trinity Hall, and Sannel 
D'Oria, of St. John's College. 

As to the Grimaldis— on the death 
•f the present Marqnesa Loigi Gri- 
maldi of Genoa, the only members of 
that femily wil) be the descendants of 
Alexander Grimaldi, who waa bap- 
tiied at St. Luke*s, Genra, Jane idsg^ 
son of Joseph, inscribed in the Golden 
Book in 1669^ and who settled in Lon- 
don, soon after the destruction of his 
native city by Lonis XiV. in l685. 
He was buried at St. Pfeincras, Middle- 
sex, June 2, 1792', and left two sons 
and two daughters, from the eldest of 
which sons, Alexander, bom in Eng- 
land (London?), Nov. 2, 1714, and 
married at the Fleet, March 12, 1745-6, 
to Miss Mary Barton, there are de- 
scendants, of whom a short account ap- 
peared in this Magazine for June 1830. 

And lastly, as to the Spinolas: — 
Paul Baptist Spinola, haying been 
created Knight of the Garter (see Gent. 
Mas. for April 182g), settled in Eng- 
land, leaving among his heirs Ediiiond, 
Dean of Winton, who suffered death 
for his religion under Queen Eliza- 
beth ;t and Emanuel Spinola, son of 
Nicholas, who became so celebrated a 
Canon of the Church of Chichester, 
that Benedict XH. created him Arch- 
bishop of Monreale in Sicily, at the 
age of 28 yean. It may be added, 
that the Pailavicrni, another of the 
twenty-eight Alberghi, also settled in 
Ensland, and intermarried frequently 
with the Protector Cromweirs ramily. 
Sir Horatio Pallavicini was knighted 
by Queen Elizabeth in 1587. Sir 
Henry his son married Jane Cromwell, 
and died in l6l5 ; another son married 
Catherine Cromwell. Sir Horatio's 
daughter was married to Henry Crom- 
well, Esq. son of Sir Oliver; and Sir 
Peter Pallavicini was knighted by 
James II. at Windsor, in 1687* 

The antiguity of the existing Nobi- 
lity of the Genoese has no parallel in 
this country. In the earliest of the 
public records of the Republic, and 
which commence about the year 1100 
(a few years after our matchless record

recognized only the male line, and of 
which we hare an eridence in the 
kwi of France to this day.^ Those 
conTersant with the ancient history of 
that country need not be informed 
that the territories of modern France 
combine a number of the Gaulish 
states with the Celtic of Armorica, or 
Lower Brittany. This digression may 
be requisite, to show that whether 
these remains, or any others that may 
be discovered hereafter so invested in 
garments of hair, should prove to be 
those of male or female, will in no 
manner discountenance my first ap- 

Perhaps in venturing so far into the 
retrospect of the ancient history of the 
laud of Britain, my remarks may have 
awakened some attention. I hope they 
have ; and that it will hence become 
obvious that there are other historians 
of this country that deserve considera* 
tion, as well as those whose names 
are more familiar, and that the testi- 
mony of those least known may best 
assist us in the research to which our 
attention is now directed. My atten- 
tion so far has been confined chiefly to 
the customs of ancient Ireland, and I 
wish now to add that the testimony of 
the ancient historic evidences of the 
Cambro* Britons, prove that the cus- 
toms and laws of these people bore a 
striking analogy with those of ancient 
Ireland. Nor will this similitude ap- 
pear remarkable, when it is remem- 
oered that the dynasty of Irish princes 
had at an early period filled the throne 
of sovereignty among the states of Bri- 
tain. It was this line of princes that 
Save the Britons their immorial Cara- 
oc, better known as the Caractacus 
of Livy; and the Gael-na-Gael of 
Albanac, or ancient Scotland, which 
the Romans have so adroitly neutra- 
lized from the Gaelic language into 

We now approach a point which I 
conceive may lend in a great measure, 
if not entirely, to elucidate the mystery 
under contemplation. We read in 
those remains of ancient British his- 
tory, the Triads, of a powerful prince of 
the Britons named Rhita-Gawr, who 
is ranked as one of the three opposers 
of tyranny, that is, of the wrong do- 
ings of petty tyrants, over whom, as 
supreme chief, he held the balance of 
power in Britain, like the Erimoun of 
Ireland : nor does it appear to be alto- 
geiber improbable that he might be 

himself of the race of Ireland, whom' 
the Britons had chosen for the pur-* 
pose of subduing rebellion among the 
native princes. Of Rhita-Gawr it it 
recorded that he had reduced a num- 
ber of these princes to the rank of 
slavery, and having cut off their beards 
as a mark of degradation, ordered a 
vestment to be made of the hair, and 
which robe he wore as a trophy of his 
victories over them during life, and 
might possibly have been buried 

I f these remarks should tend to ex- 

Clain the mystery of the discovery of a 
ody so enveloped in vestments com- 
posed of hair, I would further add, 
that the mode of sepulture among the 
I rish, as with the Britons, varied accord- 
ing to the circumstances of their death. 
The warrior who fell in battle, if his 
party remained masters of the field, 
was most commonly interred npon the 
spot, and " the stone raised over him,'* 
i. e. the cromlech ; or if the warrior 
fell in an un propitious contest with 
unsullied honour, his body was gene- 
rally ransomed from the victors, and 
deposited by his friends in some other 
place. There are instances on record 
of the body of a favourite chr^f or war- 
rior having been ransomed for its 
weight in gold, and thus acouirinf the 
epithet of a "golden corpse. This re- 
lates, 80 far as our information goes, 
to the Cambro- Britons, but it was 
probably the same with the Irish; 
Among the monarchs of Ireland, we 
have an instance of one at an early 
period, who had died upon his bed 
covered with an outstretched skin of a 
marine animal that had been caught 
in the contiguous sea, and which I 
conceive to be a kind of seal. He 
died from the ill effects of the damp 
of the skin, and being sewn up in the 
skin, was interred therein. This in- 
terment of the body in the hairy skin 
of an animal of the seal tribe, would 
not be very different from that in vest- 
ments of hair. The whole collectively 
considered, seems to lead to a conclu- 
sion that these mortal remains which 
we have been considering, are those 
of a human being who had either 
fallen accidentally into the moss, or 
who had far more probably been in- 
terred therein; if the moss were not 
of more recent formation, and which 
to me appears to be the most plausible 
conjecture of either. The vestments 
composed of hair may further lead to

wia addoced, at a proof among other eri- 
danoa of Cbelr being thus conamonly used in 
this ommtnr ap to the Uth century. From 
thb Mr. O. took oceaaioo to rappoaa that 
H waa not improbable, during the cuttom of 
flooring pofaiie edifioet and saered templei 
with the teweUatad pavement, b might have 
buome the pmctioe aUo of adoninflf^ in tha 
aama manner,- the dwellings of partieular of 
diatingubhad individuals ; which hypothesis 
would account m a setisfactory way for the 
number of the remeins of these pevementf 
continually being discovered in so many and 
each widely different parts of this country. 
Thoagh toe Romans undoubtedly intrb- 
dticcd the arc Into England, yet it is noi 
certain that they took it away with them, — 
that tha Briinh and Saxons diid not perpe- 
foata it here, or at least keep up the use of 
those pavements already oflnstrueted, as 
wall aa in succeeding times, derive the euf- 
torn afresh, though in a limited degree, 
from its introduetion into churches, &c. If 
so, the numerous floors of Mosaic work 
almoei daily discovered, have not been so 
lomr in disuse as is generally imagined." 

So far as I recollect, the accounts 
we have of the variety and number of 
these pavements found in England, 
almost universally refer the latest use 
made of them to the period during 
vrhich the Romans occupied Britain, 
or at most but for a short time after- 
wards. If I am not mistaken, most of 
the descriptions of them inserted in the 
Archseologia, and furnished of course 
bv members of the Antiquarian So- 
ciety, entirely pass over the inquiry as 
to when these pavements were last in 
usage in this country or on the Conti- 
nent, or that they were so at all sub* 
sequcntJy to the time above speeified, 
beyond the common notion of their 
being laid or used in public and sacred 
edifices. F.A.S.

I need scarcely remnMl any of yont

which was placed in its present sita»»

which it once adorned ; and surely it 
reflecta no credit upon the partahioncn^

FEELING confident that every

the liberty of sending yon for insertion 
the eopyof an Inscription from a tomb* 
stone erected to the memory of an old 
and faitlifol aervant of that celebrated 
angler. The memory of David Hook- 
ham has been handed down among^ 
the villagers in the neighbourhood of 
Cotton Hall, and many marvellooa 
tales aro related of him with the usual 
embeUishments. David died befort 
his master, and the following n his 
Epitaph, with the initials I. Vv. at tha 
bottom ; it is presumed therefore to be 
the produdton of the ancient Angler. 
Yours, &c. Spbctator.

THE namcorBtiLMEa is assocUieU 
with all ihai i] correct and beau- 
tiful in Typographv. By him llie 
WIS matured, and broiigf 


last nuotber ic wai our painful duly lo 
RCOid the death of this worthy indivi- 
dual : we must now be allowed lo di- 
late on hii mcril* a» a printer some- 
what at large. 

This cetebraled typographer was a 
tiBiiTc of Newcaslk on Tyne, where 
he was apptenliced lo Mr. Tliompson, 
in the Btitnt House Entry, St. Nicho- 
l*>' Church-yard, froin whom he re- 
ceived the dtsl rudimeoit of \iU art. 
During hii appreniicejhrp he form- 
ed a friendihip vTJlh Thomas Bewick, 
the celebrated engraver on wood, which 
lasted wilh great cordinlity throughout 
life. It wa* iheif praclice whilst youihi 
10 Tiiit together ctery morning a fatm- 
liouteal Elslvick, a small village about 
(wo oiilcs ffom Newcastle, and in- 
dulge in Goody Coxen's hot rye-cake 
and btitlcr-milk, who used to prejiate 
these dainiid Tor such of the New- 
castle youLb* who were inclined lo en- 
joy an eailv moiaing walk before the 
tiusiness orihe day commeuced. 

During the period of the joint ap- 
prenticestiips of these yoong aspirants 
for fame, Bulroer inirariably toot 
off the Ertt impmsions of Bewick's 
tlockt,Bthi5 master's priniing-cffice at 
Newcastle, where Bulmer printed the 
engraving of the Himtsman and Old 
Hound, which obtained for Bewick 
ihe premium from the Society of Arts 
In London. Mr. Bulmer afterwards 
■uggnted to his friend Bewick an im- 
protenenl, of which he availed him- 
(elf, of towering the surface* of the 
blocks where the distance or lighter 
parts of ibe engraving were to be 
shown to perfection. 

When Mr. Bulmer first came lo 
LondoD, his senicea were engaged by 
Mr. John Bell, who was then pub- 
lishing his beautiful minialuie editions 
vfttw Poets, Shakspeare, &c. About 
1787, an aecideniol circumstance in- 
iroduced Mr. Bulmer to ihe late Geo. 
NIcol, ewj. bookseller to King George 
ill. who was then considering the 
best method of carrying into effect the 
projected oiignificent national edition 
of Shakspeare, which he had suggested

to Messrs. Boydell, ornatnenled with 
designs by the hnl ariisis of this coun- 
try. Mr. Nicol had previously en- 
ga^ the skilful talenla of Mr. Win, 
Mariio, of Birmingham, in cutting sets 
of lypes, after approved models, in imi- 
tation of the sliatp and fine letter used 
by the French and Italian printers; 
which Mr. Nicol for a length of lime 
caused to be carried on in his owo 

Premises were then engaged in 

Clcvelnnd-row, St. James's, and ihe 
"Shakspeire Press'' was eslab!i:hed 
under the firm of '• W. Bulmer and 
Co." This establishment soon evinced 
how judicious a choice Mr. Nicol had 
made in Mr.Bulmer to raise the repu- 
taiiop of his favourite project. 

"This magnificeni edition (says 
Dr. Dibdin), which Is worthy of the 
unrivalled compoiitinns of our great 
Dramatic Bard, will remain as long 
as those compoiitions shall be admired, 
en honourable testimony of the taste 
and skill of ihe individuals wbo plan- 
ned and conducted it to its completion. 
Tlie text was revised by G. Steeveus 
and Isaac Iteed. Mr. Bulmer possess- 
ed the proof sheets of the whole work, 
on which are many curious remarks by 
Stecvcns, not always of the most cour- 
teous description i also some original 
ionnels, a scene for a burlesque tra- 
gedy, some graphic sketdies, Sec." 

•'The establishment of the Shak- 
speare Pren (continues Dr. Uibdin), 
was unqueationably an honour both to 
the founders in particular, and to the 
public at large. Our greatest poet, our 
gicatesl Daioter, and two of our most 
respectable publishers and piiutert, 
were all embarked in one common 
cause ; were generally and jointly aaial- 
gamaled, as it were, in one common 
white-hot crucible; from which issued 
so pure and brilliant a Raine or fusion, 
that it gladdened all eyes and hearts, 
and ibrew a new and revivifying lustre 
on the threefold arts ofoainting, en- 
graving, and printing. The nation ap- 
peared 10 be not less struck than asto- 
nished ; and our venerable Monarch 
George the Third, felt anxious not only 
to give such a magniiicent establish- 
ment every degree of royal support, 
but, infected with the matrix and 
puncheon mania, he had even con- 
templated the crealion of a royal print- 
ing oiBce within the wall* or bis own 
palace !"

One of his Majfity'i principal hopes 
and wishes was, for his own coaniry 
to rival the celebrity of Parma in the 
productions of Boduni ; and Dr. Dib- 
ain pleasantly alludes to what he calls 
the Bodoni Hum, — of "his Majesty 
being completely and joyfully taken in, 
by bestowing upon the efforts of Mr.

had supposed was due exclusively to
