to make the world's books discoverable online. 

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

To SYLVANUS URBAN, Gevt. 

ON COMPLETING HIS SliXTY-SEVENTH VOLUME. 

URBAN, the Mufe to thee repeats her lays ; 
Who love thy labours Ihould impart their praift. 
SccTaftc fupcrior to the mafs appear. 
And Judgement's bafe on various Science rear : 
Tis thus the Foreft-trecs high towering rife, 

' •^ Their bafe in earth, their canopy the ikies ;** 
Beneath their umbrage live th'aerial race. 
Their DatVal freehold, and their happieft place ; 
Below, from earth the herds their comfort draw^ 
And follow Nature, form'd by Nature's law ; 
While the gay infcdt-train or dart or fly, 
A fliort-liv'd race, that breed, take wing, and die. 
But ftill the lufty Oak and healing Pine, 

" The Elm, or Afli, for all our wants combine ; 
In endlefs Ihapes domeftic they are fpread ; 
The chearful fire cv'n from their refufc fed ; 
Disjoin'd, cemented, of the Foreft born, 
Ships form new groves upon the briny lawn. 
And as the Foreft, fo thy Work imparts 
A fiore exhauftlefs to the Liberal Arts ; 
A fruitful glebe, where every birth conveys 
Some bloom, to brighten 'ncath ihy friendly rays; 
While, like its foliage, numVous (hades combine. 
And round their parent-trunk encircling twine. 
See Genius occupy the loftieft fite. 
And Ihine ennobled by its Patron's light ; 
See kccn-ey'd Criticifm unite to fcan 
All that contributes to the gen'ral plan ; 
To raifc low Merit from its grave of earth, 
And give its various fruits a fecond birth ; 
Tlius every claim doth with thy Work afcend, 
Ccnftfllng Uiv!iAN as the general friend. 

* tf public ir.?n may draw on public fome; 
PIcasM Willi Uiv' echo of a patriot name ; 
If the Philanth'.'.j^ill:, with friendly glow, 
Actra(!ls our fricnrllhlp, and difpcls our woe ; 
Who, like the in»lucnce of the Summer's day, 
{mpiiris to all l\h mild and chcaring ray ^ 
If ihelc have praife — tlie Mufe fhould then entwine 
ilcr lays for Ui;baN| Patroa of i^e Mine.

Gentleman's Magazine : 

For JANUARY, tjgy. 



BEING THE FIRST NUMBER OF VOL. LXVII. PART I. 



Mr. UkbaV, 7j«. 6. 

1df^4f^^ MUCH wonder that 
^ \JL DO ofit of the nume- 

2^ T S fouifrieodf of the Uic 
^ c5 I«inienied Mr. Benweli 

^ ^ has paid a greater tri- 

W^yH^^yi^ bute of refpea to hit 

memor? thdU what 'ip« 
pcared in your Obitaary, to). LXVI. 
p. 797. A cbara£ler fo truly amable 
and excellent dcferves to be difpiaved 
in the brighteft coloorsi nor is it with 
any idea of rloint; juftice to hit merits 
that I trouble you with this account of 
him, but in the hope of drawing from 
lome more able pen a fuller and more 
perfeft delineation of his geotut and 
▼irtue*. 

Mr. Btnwell was brought up under 
tbe circ ot the Rev. Dr. Valpy at 
Reading, who ftill conduct his (cnool 
with (o much credit to htmieif, and 
fuch adrant'tge to his numerous fcho- 
lars. He entered at Trinit* Coitege, 
Oxford, in the be^ini^ing of the < ear 
1783, and foon ditt.nguifhed himielf 
as an cxceltebt cUflical fcho.'ar, parti- 
culaily for hu L^tio compolitions both 
in profe and v«r(e. Thcfe atta'.nmenti 
led him to alpire to the public honour* 
of the UDivcrHty, and his cffo.ts were 
crowned with iuccefs ; firfl, by i^aining 
the Under-gradiiate's prize in 1785 for 
Lann hexameteis on *' The Siege and 
Pil:ageof Rome by Alaricf^' and then 
the Batchelor'Sy in the year 1787, by 
a very tlegjnt eflay on *' The Superior 
jiiy of the Moderns over the Antients 
in Art and Science." Henceforward 



he was looked up to as oce of the or»a- 
ments of the Univerfiryi and, befidet. 
his literary accompliflimentfli he was 
equally eftaemed and admired by hit 
friends for an amiable fweetnefs tad 
, modefty of difpofition, for maturity of 
judr.ement, and ao exquidte purity of 
general- tafte. 

Soon after taking his degree of A«|B« 
be was ordained deacon by the prcfcot 
Bilhcp of Hereford, then Biihop of 
Oxford \ and (there being yet no fiel« 
lowfhip vacant for him on the fbtiada* 
tion of his college) he retired to the 
curacy of Sunning ir. Berkfhire. Hero 
the fame unafloaiing modefty of man* 
ners, and purity ot character, gained 
him the love and eAeem of hit pariihy 
and the general refpeft of the neigh- 
bourhood. But it is in his behaviour 
to the poor that his admirable charac* 
ter m<A (hone forth. His kind and 
patient atiention to their wants and in« 
(irmitiesy his aliiduity in inftru^iag 
and catechizing the children, together 
wi'h hit' zeal in viiiting the (ick, and 
adminifUring to .them the comforts of 
relig.on, (hewed his own ftrong fen(o 
of clerical duty, and marked him as a 
moft conlcientious and exemplary cler* 
gynun. His own (incere piety too 
gave weight to his inftruflionSy which 
failed not f turn w$nnj t§ righttoufneft^ 
and. < eft an impieiiion, which, i dara 
fay, is not yet effaced from the mindt 
of his poor friends (as he ufed Co call 
them) ;n that extenJive parifli* 

In the year 1790 Mr. B. fuocecded 
to a fclJowihip of T^nity-coUege \ and 



fuffictent to proi^uce any ice.— Z4. Ice i 4-ioths inch. — 25. Ice 2 4-icths inches. Thit

*n his return to Oxford he cnfriged in chaile» eafy, and correal, formed in 
the tuition of pupils, and undertook, the fchool of Cicero and Addilon, or 
the care of 3 new edition of the Mrmo-. ' perhaps more nearly refembling rhe 

eiegant (implicitv of his favourite Xe« 
no|)hon. His critical tafte was emi« 
nentl^ juft and pure ; nor was it coa«* 
fined to lite^ry produ^ioos, but c« 
quaMy extended to p^iinting, printt, 
and eve-V wfrrk of elegant art.' His 
d>fcourfe!( for tlic pulpit were written 
and dtlivered in a flra:n of pie:v "tnd 
finctrttv, well ndap'ed to move the af- 
fections of hii poorei hearers, to whom 
heufed more parriruUrly to iddr-.Tt 
himfrif ; and bmh in manner and mat! 
ler his preaching flron^ly called to 
mind the piou<> ^nd tmiaolir ze%l of the 



rab'Uia tf Xi^9ph%m. In this work| 
from the muUipliclty of his other en- 
^aff'tncntf, his ' progrfct's was much 
flower thkn the lovert of Greek titera- 
ture cou'd have wiflied ; and, we be- 
lieve, only about two>thfrA oflt wert 
finiihedacthc ttme of hit death. Bat, 
from the fpecimens wnich the writer of 
this memoir has fecn, there is a difpliiy 
of accuracy of verbil cniicifm and 
text-emcodation, which rank him a*: 
moDg the foremoft of editors of the 
Chliics. Ht ^lib took upon himfelf the 
tioub'e of giving an entiieiy new L* 



tin trariilition. which, for elegance of good Bifhop Wilfon. With a mind 
I«atinity,isnot inferior to any that ever thus highly improved and well-direc* 
accompanied a Greek author, that of ted, had it pie afed D'vine Ptovidenca 



the Cyropxdia of Hutchmfon not ex- 
cepted. 

In the fpting of the laft year Mr B. 
was.tnftituted to ihe living of Ch'lton, 
in Su^olk, on the preTentation of Mr, 
Windham, the Secreury at War. 
This enabled him to accomplilh his 
union with a moftfenfible and am able 
woman, to whom he had been long at- 
tached with the pured fove, and who 
^as defervin^ of a man of fuch virtue 
aiid merit. Theirmarriage took pla^e in 
June; and in September a fever, which 
he caught in his hufOitnc .itteotion to a 
poor (ick family at Milton, deprived 
the world of his valuable life, and left 
his widow <ncon(olable for fo fudden a 
di^privation of all her hopes. The life 
of man is often called a breath— >a va- 
poui I And when we coniider the 
circumflances of this happy union, 
there feems fuch a daih of all human 
hopes and profpefls, at fully confirms 
Ihe idea of the fraii a«d pei ifliabie te* 
nure of oar laortal ftate. But " the 
▼irtuous foooed die ;" and this good 
man is called away to receive thole re* 
wards which are laid u[^ for fptrits fo 
pure and heavenly. 

To review bis general character ;<w- 
Ai a fcholar» Mr. Binw«ll was of the 
6rft rank^emmeatly literate as a cUffic 
and philologift, and of no lefs rehned 
tafle 4nd (kill in autxjuarian refe<irch« 



to have granted him a longer tertn of 
ycirs. he w6u'd no doubt have pro-' 
duced fome work th^t .^'ould have en« 
riched the ftores of learnng, ur pro* 
moted the c.iufc of virrue and religion. 

In flature Mr. Benwelt was at)Out 
the middle Hze, fleiidvr, and grntcel 
in perfon, of mild and penile deport* 
ment and manneis, which, wuh the 
(off expreffi m of his eyes and counie- . 
nance, contributed to render him uni* 
veif^lly beloved. 

His tofs to his friends is irreparable, 
and by »one of thim .s he more fin* 
cerely lamenred than by toe writer of 
this impertc^t dccouiit. He knew Mr. 
Benwell (won pticr hii entrance t the 
L^nive^^lt^, and always edeemed hit 
friendlhip and ncquMutance as one of 
the happie(\ ciicumUances of hi* :ife. 
This tribute of affedlion, thetcf re, he 
has wilhcd to pay to the n:emory cif 
him as a man of the mod pure and 
virtuous charafter, of refined genius 
and t^ile, and of the ftridcA difpofition 
and manners.

In the fpMng of the laft year Mr B. 
was.inftituted to ihe livi.ig of Ch'tton, 
in Su^oik, on the prefentation of Mr, 
Windham, the Secretjry at War. 
This enabled him to accomplilh his 
union with a moft feniible and am able 
woman, to whom he had been long at- 
tached with the pured love, and who 
v^as defervin^ of a man of fuch virtue 
and merit. Theirmarnage took pla^e in 
June; and in September a fever, which 
he caught in his hu'nunc attention ro a 
poor C\ck family at Milton^ deprived 
the world of his valuable life, and left 
his widow locooiolable for fo fudden a 
deprivation of all her hopes. The life 
of man is often called a breath— >a va- 
pouf I And when we confider the 
circumflances of this happy union, 
there feems fuch a daih of all human 
hopes aod profpeAs, at fully confirms

In flature Mr. Henwelt was at)out

in perfon, of mild and genrle deport* 
ment aod manners, which, with the 
(ofi exprelfi ^n of his cyew 'dud counte- 
nance, contributed to render him uui* - 
veif'illv beloved. 

His tofs to his friends is irreparable, 
and by r.one of ihcoi .& ht. more fm* 
cercly lamenred than by the writer of 
this imperfect dcc.>uiit. He knew Mr. 
Benwell (oon ^ticr hii entrance t the

friendlhip and icquMutance as one of 
the happie(\ ciicut:)Uances of hn :ife.

and the other dauf>hter, M.«ry, mar* 
ried .... Leitihton. The pedigree of

reaches no farther than ^bout 1650 ; fo 
tkar it may be no improbable fuppofi- 
tion, rhat the defccndants of Elizabeth

However this be, it fliould feem from

to meet with, that there are no re-

From the inscription on the menu-

Dorfetfliire, tt appcais that he married 
the Haoghter of rhe Lord Zouch, 'and 
lefc ifliie three (ons; ahd in Hutchins's 
Hif^ory of Dorfet (he is H^ted to be

But It is remarkable, that neither 
Dugdale''8 Baronage, nor* the Zouch

nor IS ao| daughter Catharine men- 
tioned either of John, or of rhe fuc*

So th^i it may not be improper to en- 
quire whether fhc was daughter of

IN un excurfiont which I made laft 
autumn, to vifit the filace of my na* 
tivitv, I had an opportunity of afde'r* 
taining the parentage of the poet Mal- 
let. His father, whofc n ime was James 
Milloch, kept an alchoufe in Crieff, a 
handfome little village in the county 
of Perth," and about 56 mUes North 
from Edinburgh; Here Mallet was 
born. During the rebellion in^ 17159 
the village of Crieff was burnt by the 
Highland army, on account of the at- 
tjichment of its inhabitants to the royal 
caufe. The houfe of James Mai loch 
fliaiei the fame fate with the refi of the 
village. Sonne y^arft ago the defcend- 
ants of the fufFerers received fiom go- 
vernment a lain equivalent to a certain 
proportion of the iofs which h^d been 
fuHained. The proportion which fell 
to jAn)e« Maltoch's heirs was about 
24 1. itc'ling. This fum, I believe, 
was never claimed by acy of Ma'let^s 
children. CrlFENSIS,

no ether tiew in its et^abl (hment than

permitted, but even invited by the na- 
ture of the inAitution, to publifli any 
political ot religious opinions, however 
novfl, irregular, orexriavngan*, which 
have no tendency ro excite ledition, or 
recommend immorality. But, if this 
Urriver(iTV is to be confidfied not only

from the pirincipie ot adopting,the po. 



ceedings by a fpirit of party or perfonal

,tions» left yoti make a js;ood chimney a 
bad one. To cure this, I have tf led 
various ways of making a fire; buc. 
none have anfwered lo well as the fol- 
lowing, which is in reality only rever- 
finrg (he common mode. The grate is 
entirely emptied of its contents, and 
the coils are thrown promifcuouily 
(withoiK having very lar^eones amongft 
tnem) to the heigm of two or three 
bars, according to the depth of the 
grate ; upon which the wood is laid, 
iod the cinders are placed at the top, 
and the 6re u lighted by a candle in 
the ufual way, or, if convenient, by a 
fire-lhovel of well-burnt cindets from 
another 6re, upon which the cold cin- 
ders mud be immediately thrown. 

The fmoke is very inconfiderable, 
nnd goes dire^ly up (he chimney ; and 
tlie cinders art very foon heated. In 
tigie the upper (urface of the coal takrs 
fire ; an4, as the fmoke ilTues, it is ar- 
retted by the parous quality of the 
cinders, and, pnfling aifo through a 
burning fubftance, great pm of* it is 
confumed; and what iifues from the 
whole. maf^, to go up the chimney, is 
Very in^confiderabie, and of a different 
appearance to the fmoke efciping from 
(ires made in the common form. It is 
ohviouH that a great portitn of com- 
buftible matter, which is now commonly 
wafted, is by this means confumed in 
the fire, and the benefit of it enjoyed ; 
the cinders a£ling upon the fmoke 
fomewhat as a filtering- ftone does upon 
water, and the fuel they catch helps 
them to hum clearer, and, what may 
appear extraordinary, preferves them 
longer from bt^ing confumed. If any 
one is in doubt about this fa6^, I refer 
him to the very faiisfa^lory experiments 
of Dr. Franklin. As this fire confumcs 
downwards, the upper ftrata of the 
coals aie rcc!uccd to cifldcr« before the 
lower ones \ ^nd the appearance of 
hnoke is gradually diminiflied, though 
.it muft be an undoubted fa£t that as 
much really ilTues from the coals. It 
burns aifo clearly to the very hoitomj 
«(ithout the necefl^ty of fiirring it with 
the poker; and, as it gives as much 
hear, and talts tw^ce as long as a fire 
made in the common way, the(e are 
additional arguments in its iavour, and 
will bare their propoj'tioped weight 
wheie fuel is the dearer. 

It It a Very proper fire to be left to 
itfelf for a length of time, and is the 
beft that can be for a fick chamber, or 
for thofe who arc fond of firei in dicir 



bed*rooms at night; the great incon- 
veniences of which are, that, in the 
ufual mode, they require fre({uent (iir-t 
ring, and are apt to fill the room with 
fulphureous' vapodr, and endangering 
fffocation. 

Servants are in general obftinate^ 
and will require to be inftru6led a few 
times ; which, with a perceptible abate* 
menr of their own trouble, will per* 
haps induce them to follow this method, 
which I will veoiure to pronounce the 
beft in all cafes ; and the only care nc- 
crflfary is, to keep the coals and cinders 
well fepirated. 

Af:er all, the chimney mav be found 
lo fmoke, tut then it is from fome 
other caule, and requires its appropriate 
remedy, as this is offered for one dif- 
tin£^, yet very prevailing, inconvenience. 
If this method was fteadily perfevered 
in, I do farther venture to pronounce, 
that almoft nine out of ten, of chim- 
neys called bad drawing' ones, will ob- 
tain a very^ood name, and that much 
labour and dirtinefs will be avoidedp 
as well as good refpirable air preferved 
uncontaminated, and many tender loogt 
etcape daily torture. 

As the experiment is in every one's 
power to make, I (ball not trouble 
you with any ef mine farther than to 
fay, that I have trie^ it in a great va* 
liety of fuppofed hopelefs fubjefls, and 
never knew it fail of fuccefs. Viator.

IHAV£ fent you drawings of Cod-

the Gentleman's Magazine. 

Codfall is a coofiderable village (itu- 
atad on a hill fire miles north weft of 
Wolverhampton: the Church tt^nds 
at the north end of the village, and has 
evident marks of great antiquity. The 
building conttint nothing remarkable, 
but its pie^fant fiiuition, from which 
there it ao agreeable profpefl of CliiU 
lingcon Park, and the adjsiceut coun.

Brewood is a fmafi marker-town in 
Sutfurdfliirey fttuated on a gentU emi- 
nence fevcn miles from VVolverhamp-

ftcufiurt with a iofiy fpire, but does

Mr. Urban, Dee. to. 

IfliJtll be much obliged to fome of yoitr 
claliical and mechanical correfpon« 
dents to explain rhe tonftruAiun of the 
veilel in whicli Nero intended that hit 
mother Agrippina fliould be deftroyed* 
Tacitus, '•uavrm pofe eomp9mi dtet 
( Anicetus), cujut pars^ ipfit in ma'ipit 
ariiMfiiMim, effundeni ignaram ;" from 
which It ivou;d appear that a part of 
the vefTel was to have given way, and 
that Agrippina was to have been dif« 
charged, or, te ufe a nauticit expref* 
fion, (hot out, into the Tea ; but th« 
execution of the plan does not corre* 
fpood with this intention ; for, Tacitus 
fays, that, whiMl Agrippina was rela« 
ting with exultation the repentance of 
her fon, ** daufi^no rutfi uGnm ioci 
mutio ptumh§ gi aviprejufqut errptniut^ 
& fiatim ixanimatu^** (Annal. 14* 
fee. 3 & 5 ) From which exprefBnn 
it feems clear, that' the upper part of 
the deck lell down inio the cabin, and 
that it was expe^ed Agrippina and 
her attendants would be crufhsd to 
death. She efC'iped, Tacitus fays, 
from the ftrong fupports of her bed.

Gentlemen, 

IT is well known, that the late de- 
mand made by France en Rome for 
the fincil works of Greek fcutpture, 
and the beft paintin|ss in that city, pro- 
duced two pcc.tions from different bo- 
dies of FrcncR Aitifts to the Executive 
Diredory ; one praying, that thofe 
works might not be removed, (igned 
David, Giroudet, Vincent, &c* which 
was anfweced by a fecood, an Englifh 
tranilatioB of which was publiflied in 
tbe Courier, 06lober 13, blaming the 
Hrl^i and dciiring that all the fiooworks 
night be imme.d aiely brought into 
France, to form an Univetfu^ to which 
ail niitions fliou'd be obliged to fludy 
the Arts of D^Hgn, (igned by Hubert, 
l^d thirty-eight other artifts. 

This queftion, whether the fine 
works (huuld be brought Aom Italy to 
Paris, IS of the greateft importance to 
Art, "Science, and Literature, and of 
oeafe^uence in this refpe6t 10 all

more likely to be decided by force than 
laafon, yec every Artill, of whatever 
country, will have an equal right with 
the petitioners, to confidcr the obje6l 
of this latter petition, and its probable 
#OBfe<|uences. 

I (hall, therefore, avail myfetf of 
this priirilege ; and, without engar^Ag 
ia any political difculHon, or applying 
Biyfelf ia any way to the pamons uf 
mcQr I lb>ll examine the arguments 
ooatained in this fecood petition by the 
t«ll of truth only. 

I (hall firll coniider upon what pre- 
tence the French nation has made this 
demand upon the Papal li^te, and how 
far it is reafonablc with refpc^ to the 
reft of Europe. When compeofaiion 
is demanded by one Aaie from another, 
it is for fome injury or lofs fuftained } 
ImiC France has fuAained neither lof^ 
nor injury from the Papal ilate ; on 
the contrary, by the formation of the 
French Republick, and the progrefs of 
the French arms in Italy, the Papal 
Stau has loft the provinces of Avignon, 
Bologna, and Ferrara \ and, therefore, 
in ji:&ice, ch«> Romans might demand

the dbttfcqueacet of all tlais patriotifin f 
Difcord I Waf 1 Europe would be 
more ahondant'y deluged tvtch blood ; 
the poffefibrs of thofc works wouU! I>e 
deOroyed, ai well as, mpft likely, the 
6bc wosks themfclves, m the cooteft. 

Such patriotifm is not virtue, it is 
a fplendtd vice; that parnotifm alone 
is virtue, by which jxe provide for the 
good of our couatr y, without dom^ any 
thing that inurfercs with the welfare 
or hapiyscfa of auotber; this is the 
o«ly way in which we can honour our 
country, and not, like highway- robbers 
or pirates^ io bringing home whatever 
valuable, plunder we can feizc. 

Thus we fee, th-it the intended re. 
moval of the fine works of Sculpture 
and Painting is as unreafonable, re- 
fpefting the reA of £urope, as it is un- 
juft refpeAing Rome; ifor, as France 
docs not appear to have any claim 
upon Rome for compeafationy any 
other plea might be urged, with ai 
much rcafon, by any other country of 
Europe. 

if France, in her dtmand on Rome 
for thofe workt, had any motive of 
ftace-poiicy, or view of indemnifica- 
tion for general lolTes^ thcfe I can fay 
Bocbing IO, as being out of the way of 
my intention,' which was to enter into 
no political difcuffioni but, furely, it 
may be faid, that thcfe works fupply oo 
meant to fupport a war ; and it muft 
be doubtful whether their removal to 
Faria would facilitate the ftudy of 
Pciigo, even in that city, whiift the 
great comoiunity of Arc and Letters, 
both of the prefent and future agtrs, na- 
tives as well as foreigners, would have 
reafon to blame France for having dif- 
membcffed the Univerfity of the World. 

However, before 1 quit this part of 
the Cubjef^, I ihall notice one argu- 
ment of the petitioners for wilhing to 
bring chofe works to Paris : it is this ; 
^* the Romans, although antlSntty rude 
and unpoli(hed themielves, civilized 
their nitiun by cranlplancing into ii the 
prod ud ions of conquered Greece.'* 
It IS true, that the Roman orators and 
|H)ets owe almoft the whole of their 
rptendor to what iltey had learned from 
the Greeks ; but Rome profited li tie 
by Grecian philofophy and niathema-. 
ticka i they were reduced to be the 
handmaids of politicks and war in that 
metropolis ; and, according to the tcf- 
cimony of Pliny the Elder, as well al 
all the remaining monuments, we have 
but flight groufldf to bchcvc, that ail

the painting and fculpture brought 
from G e«ce ever produced a Romaa 
Arti(\ of real excrlUncc ; on the con* 
tr.<ry, it hns been iuppofed, ihit the 
Genius of Rome was buried under the 
ruins of Greece.

Dear Sir, NortbumbfrlanJ, Off. ^, 

EVERY account I have fro<n Eng- 
land makes me tbink myfelf hap-» 
py in this peaceful retiremt-nr, where 
I eojoy atmoll every thing 1 can wifli 
in this life, and where I hope to clofie 
it ; though I find it is reported, boik 
here and m England, that { am abouC 
to return. The two heavy afflictions 
I have met with here, in the death of « 
fon, and of my wife, rather ferVe to 
attach me to the place. Though deadt 
and buried, I would not willingly leave 
them, and hope ro reft with them whc« 
the Suvereifvn Difpofer of all thing* 
(hall put a period to my prefect la- 
bours and purfuiit. The advantages 
we enjoy in this country are indeed 
very great. Here we have no poor^ 
we never fee a beegar, nor is there • 
family in want. We hive no church- 
eftabliih ncnt, and hardly any taxeu 
This particular liare pays all itsofficcni 
from a treal'ure'' in the public fgndn. 
There are very few crimes committed^ 
and we travel without the lead appre* 
henHoo of dani^er. The prefs is per- 
f<6kiy free; and, I hope we fiitil al- 
ways keep out of war. I do not think 
there ever was any country in the 
world in a flate of fuch rapid improve- 
ment as this u at prefent { but we hav€ 
not the fame advan<a^ts for literary 
and philofophical putluits that yoa 
have in Earope, though even in thim 
refpe£t we arc tvery day getting be-ter. 
Many books arc now printed here*j 
but what fcholars chicfty want are ol4 
books, and thefc are n(;t to be had. 
We hope, however, that the trouble* 
of Europe will be the caufe of fendifig 
us fome libraries \ and they f^y thac 
it is aa i'l wind that blows no profir. 
I fincercly wifli, however, that your

3 1. per annum ^ about 300 are taken in 
a fCiilon, and are fold lor 16 pence the

the iAand. U'hen Admiral Parker's 
fleet was here in 17S1, they Hole 47 \ 
and Paul Junes, in 1779. carried qI! 39. 
On the fummit of the illand is a forii- 
Bcation, having *< Maria Reg. 1564," 
iafciibed on one of the gates, which

Bede has thought proper to do. 

Tbe prefent name of this ifland is 
faid to be affumed from Robeit Keith, 
who in the year 1010 diliinguiil|ed 
himfelf very highly againll the Danes^ 
who had invaded Scotland with a nu* ' 
mcrous army, at the battle of B'trry in 
Angus, where be killed with his owa 
hand Camus, general and champion of 
the Danifli army, whereby the Scota 
obtained a complete viAory. In me<* 
mt»iy of this general, a lioDC was fei 
up, called Camus't Croft at this day, 
at the place where the eagagement 
happened. In reward for his valour, 
Robert was made hereditary raarifliali 
of Scotland, and had this ifland be. 
flowed upon him, tof^ ether with the 
barony of Keith in £a(l Lothian, from 
which perhaps he aflumed his name ^ 
but It is more probable he was caUed 
Keith on account of that battle^ Ceitti 
in Erfe Signifying a battle. Some 
think Inch Keith a corruption of Inaia 
Skeoch, mifty ifland ; but this I doubc« 
The French called it H/Uda Chtv^ux^ 
from its property of fooa fattening 
horfes. 

How ton^ this ifland continued in 
the Keith familvi I know not 1 it 
afterwards belonged to the Lvont, 
eails of Srrarhtftore and KiDghorn. 
John, lord Glammis, lord great Chaa- 
l>erlain of Scotland, on hit marriage 
with lady Jean Stewart, daughter of 
king Robeit lid. la 1376, got from the 
king the barony of Kinghorn in Fi^ 
and it Ihould feem Inch Keith wat in/-- 
tluded in that grant. Patrick, nth 
lord Giammis, wat in 1606 created 
earl of Kinghorn, and got a charter

the antientt, at weli at from their 
mythology. That the names of the 
great heroes and warriors of antiquity 
2iou}d*bc thus appropriated is not mat- 
ter of Airprize, becaufe thev are fovindt 
of foroe ifclat ; and the aAori them* 
feiTes had m^de no little noife in the 
world by their martial exploits : but 
tbAt we ihouid gire a degree of cele- 
brity to atl she notorious courtezans 
and libenines of old, with the Ciras, 
SfTimtf and other panders of fenfuality 
and licentioufnefsy fefems, in fome 
meafure, to be paying homage to vice. 
Not fatisfied with human, beings, we 
have impreffed into our fervice all the 
monfters of thofe fabulous times, fuch 
ai, the Minotcur, Ct^ttaur, Ctrberus, 
Hydra, and Harfif. And though the 
gods and godde4«s of the Fagins hare 
been hurled from their Olympian 
thrones, yet we have made them, in a 
roaooer, our titular divinities, as if 



The Pagan deities were entirely f>eg«* 
leded by our anceftors : for, thougit 
towards the condufion of the laft cen«> 
tury the fliips of the Royal Navf 
were numerous*, yet but one wat 
deified ; and that honour was conferred 
on Neptunif as being fovereign of the 
Tea. But, in a triumphal fong, coin* 
pofed on the occaHion of a great na^al- 
viAory, he is faid to have refigned t6 
the Britifh monarch bis Tridtnt and 
his coiral throne. We And, however^ 
in (he nautical regifters of paft timet^ 
that fdme refpef^ was paid to Sl,Am^ 
drrWj St, Dmvid, and Si. dfr^i : the 
laft is ftili retained, nor, perhaps, on;' 
account of his piety, buc becaufe he ' 
had been a fighting*man, and killed'' 
the dragon. 

The next feries bf tiamcS is taken 
from qualities, Which imply valour 
and bravery, fuch as, Firmn/mSkf Fic^ 
forioMj, ImvincibU, Irrf/tftibUt Im^' 



we ware dire£^ed by their counfels, and frtgHMbU, Intrepid, &e. Thefe may 



fought un<ter their aufpices. Thus, 
we have MiMirv^t to ft,'\vc wifdom to 
our plans; Mars and BtUona, to con- 
dud our warlike operations ; Ntptum, 
to pilot our (hips i and Jupiter, to llnke 
our enemies with coofufion, by his 
cbunderbnlcs, provided we can fecure 
the favour of'jutio, that gieat terma- 
gant of the (kics, who, by fcolding or 
coaxing, Teldom failed to procuie the 
alliftance of the father of gods and 
men. But other nations have paid a 
iimilar refpe^l to the Heathen deities, 
by giving their names to fome of their 
Ihips. And Catholic countries, not 
content with the calendar of Pagan^ 
have had- recourfe to that of Papal 
Rome, for appellations, and have 
ere&cd the ilandards of their Sa:n*t, 
fonie of whom, however, have been 
obliged to change their banners, and, 
as it appears in our naval chrooicles, 
tq fight on the fide of Heieiics, who 
have conquered thofe, whom Sitao* 
himfeif. in his vaiious conflicts, could 
not fubdue. But we, preferring the 
Fsniheon to the Bible, ha^enken from 
the lad only Stimp/on, and Go/tab ;

OSl. as, 1796. 

YOUR Magnz'ne for September bM 
only now reached me in this rer 
more corner. X obferve in it, 'p. 752^ 
R. Y's thoughts on the diiferenr copper 
coins and Jctfons which have fo abun* 
dtntly iflTucd of late year* ftiur private 
mints ; and as, at Icaft, the futuri imw 
prtvtmtnt of the defigns and formit oJE 
thefe pieces is a confuieratioa of more 
imponaftce than, perhaps this conceited 
gentleman may think, I Icfe no time in 
communicating to you fucli reflections 
as occur to me 00 his curiou*> paper* 

Of what importance is it to ynur re* 
fpc£tab1e readers, Mr. Urban, to lear9 
that R. Y. thinks hinifeif abi>ve writing 
on the fubje/Tt he' has chofcn ?<— an UB» 
pleating idea, which he impolttelf 
prcHits on his readers. He is afhamed 
to ** confefs \\\t labour he has taken \f^ 
it ;** fays, his «* hand is tired ;"-atid ufet 
other cxpretTioos of frigid dilguft, which 
fo ill accofd with the dole and ke^n 
attention which his various remarks 
difcuvtr his having paid to thefe mat<p 
ters, as to evince his languai^e to b^ 
the offspring of 00 fm-all decree of 
aff elation. 

R. Y. appears to have taken up hif 
pen when in a very peeviih bumour^ 
ihe grievances, however, which he 
compiaius ol nviy be reduced to foufn 
which, I hope, h^ will permit me (o 
detail thus : * 

• i. A degraded copper coii^age \^y 
poleJ on the public.

md Mb metal ; other paltry pieces, 
^ pnyable every where," are brought 
IWtIk M halfpence, though not worth 
firthtng5. I belitve, bowcTer, that, in 
tbeaC^narl pia£tiee of (mall exchange, 
tiiit saof trifiinf^Vxtent, when compared 
Mth tfie prodigious quantities of iMffe 
cobper cnrrency ifTued by fraudulent 
coiners, bearii^g an imitation of the 
Hampft of the national mint 9 thefe 
abnvnd in an excctfive degree in the 
cottotry, and are' become extremely 
crnvWefbme and hurtful to the ret!«il 
tnder, and to the poor. Yet Ihe evil, 
§» both cafes, has a, dire£^ tendency to 
c»f» iifelf ; and the pofitive reje£^ion 
m( fnch a 'bafe medium is now pretty 
geaciaUy adopted. I have frequently 
leca a |q(\ difcrimipation made by (hop. 
Ikceptri in the cafe of the Edinburgh 
iialfpenee ; the good fort, bearing 
''* Tho. & Alex Hutchifon*' round the 
rim» being readily taken, while they 
Mfnfed the bafe and ihin imitation, which 
fcat ** Payable at &dinhur|rh,.Glargow, 
fui4 IHnnfries." Such frrvoious vatic • 
tita are alfo unworthy the notice of the 
€pl)€£\WfiLS isyudly cb(orvcd by K. Y. 
As 10 tlte undue expence of collect- 
ing fttch pieces as have got exclufively 
Into ihe hands of the deaUrs, this muk 
k€ chiffty conHncd to the purchafc of 
fttcb pheces as have been merely (Iruck,

«rc\»laiion, or the ufe of tradefmeo; 
locb as the BaBngOoke canal piece, the 
London penny token, lately i(fued, 
licanng buildings, &c. If this be an 
ctil, it muH, however, infallibly fooo 
i^ng a remedy of \t\ own accord. It 
is in the hanr's of culle£tors ihemftli^cs 
Co coric^A this; a<, if the dealers are 
made to feel that th&y have ciiarged too 
fii^h^ they will be compelled to reduce 
•htiir piiccs for the purpofe of extending 
their falc. With rcp^ird to the trifling 
IK^Iitical jttcons of Spence and ot'.iers,

^ttce no ei[c& more important tl.tn chat

laug >t.r, or incur conicmpt. The leis 
S 



fetious attention to this riide fpeoief of

lias often h«d imprndence and ineoBfi- 
derate foUy imputed to him, for dilco- 
vering fuch bitter indrenation agatnft 
Ihe fatirical Dutch jnedaU of 157^ ; and 
furely R. Y. does pot ** do well to be

for diity ditch-water to loch of bis brew 
ther colIe£lors as may be difpofed to fee 
apart a cell or two in a mifullaneoua

mirai Richery's fquadron was p?rinftied 
to efcape from Cadiz ; and, if fKHn re- 
luftance to provoke hoAiiiitcft with 
Spain, he could not but .-applaud our 
pacific dirpf'fitioDa. The fecood point 
was, whether any official accounts had 
been ttccived of rhc|ravages committed 
by the eBcmy at Newfoundland, and if 
proper meauirek were taken to check 
their progrefa, or diflodge them from 
that ftatioD. The latter part of his 
qucftioD, he was iennble, was difficult 
and delicate to be anfwcred ; but he 
tnuft ftilly as a reprefentative of pne of 
the moft flouriibiog commercial towns 
in the world, prefs an enquiry, whether 
¥r« had any official grounds for hoping 
that the enemy would be prevented 
irom making any farther devaftations. 

Mr. Pj^us replied, that Government 
Vtt in pofleffion of official accounts 
from that quancr; and that every hope 
was enteruined that the enemy had re- 
tired from chat parr of the coall. 

The rcfolutioDs were tlien put, and 
■greed to ; and the report ordered to be 
receifcd on Monday.

bill he was about to introduce was the 
lame io fubftance at that which he had 
the honour of preienting the lad fcffion ; 
and, as the principle of that hi!! had. 
then met univcrial approbation, he 
Krufted that the one he purpofed now to 
fubmit to their coniidei ation would do 
fi likewife. The learned Serjeant, af- 
ter ndvertinjg; to the cbjewt of his mo- 
tion, moved for leave '*to biingin a

Sir Frwuii Bm/tti yt^i introduced on

Baton de PunftanviUe. 



In the Commons, the fame day, the 
CkmMCilUr 9f tt4 Extbiqmr moved the 
order of the Day, for the Houfe to re- 
folfe itfelf into a Commiute of the 



whole Houfe, to take into eonfideCBtioo 
the paffage in bts Majcfly't- Speech 
whifh alluded to " the intention roaai- 
feflcd by the enemy to invade thcfe 
kingdoms,*' &c. 

The Houfe having refolved itfelf iir« 
to tie Caid Committee, the Cbawceltor 
of tbi Excbfgtar he^an by remarking, 
that, from the avowed defrgns of the 
enemy, he thought it his duty to take 
the earliefl opportunity of lubmittingto 
the Houfe that plan which he concei* 
ved m^U effc£lual to prevent their pur- 
pofes. With rei'pe^ to the p>an he 
was going to fubmit, the general obfer'^ 
vations he had to make were few and 
obvious. It was necclfary to exert our 
natural means of defence, fo as not 
only to render the efforts of the enemyy 
ibould they have the temerity to attempt 
a defcent, incfFe£lua1, but even to io- 
creafe our vigoious and ofTcnfive opera- 
tions agaiuft them. The firll and rocfl 
natural means of defence he conceived 
to be our navy. This, though already 
augmented beyond any former e0a« 
blifliment, was, he conccijed, fttU 
capable of fanhcr flren^th, by be- 
ing reinforced with an additional ntun* 
ber of men to be raifed in dif&rent pa* 
riflies : but ihefe levies he did pot in* 
tend ibould be exdufivcly confined to 
the fervice of the navy ; half of them 
to be employed in bringing up to theft 
regular eftablilkment feveral of thofe 
regiments that had fulTered during the 
prefent war, and the other. half to be 
employed on-board the ,(Uet. He 
therefore ihoulS propofe,Mbat 15,000 
men Ibould be raifed in the difkrenc 
pariihes, to be divided between %hc fea 
and land ferviccs. It would 'farther 
ilrike the Hoc^fe, as a very important 
obje^ cf attention, to havcfuch a fprct 
as would be able to 4£t upon any emcr« 
gency, and called forth at a mooien^ft 
notice ; and, therefore, we ibouid have 
fuch a force ready to be called into ac- 
tion at a moments notice, fuppofing 
our navy not to be afiliog at all} yet 
that the mode of raifmg this force tfiould 
not interfere with the induftry and com- 
merce of his Majefly's fubje£ls, it was 
not intended that any (bould be called 
into a^ual fervice except upon an ac- 
tual invafion, or imminent danger of 
.one. The fecond propofition therefore 
was, that a fupplementary levy o£ 
60,000 men, to be taken by ballot ntMn 
diffiercnt parts of the kingdom, but not 
f0 be called upon, as be had already 
Aacedy except under the tircumfttncea

the piinciple of a paAive and unlimittd 
ohedicnce to the laws of his country, 
is transformed by Mr. T. into a de* ■ 
mo'c^tic incendiary. If Mr. T. had , 
drav.'n his information from puier ,

is (o little to cenfure, and fo much to

The 6r(l volume begins with an 
*« Ode on the King's Marriage.^' It 
is fpirited and poetical, though per-

Queen on her Birth-day," which' fol-

of a thirds with the notes »n'Gcrman, by 
Dr. A. C. Boithcck v Lemro. The 
two firft are intended for the ufc of 
fchools : the editor of the la ft ailoptcd 
the Bipontinr text without much cri- 
tical difquifition. Mr. Wetzel his, 
indscd, generally adhered to the text 
of ErneRj, bur, as might na urally be 
expc6ied from the opinion which he 
had elfewhere expreffcn concerning his 
merit as an editor of C c«ro, iJot wi:h- 
oul frequent deviations from it, partly 
the refult of his .own judgement, and 
partly fupported by the au hoVity of 
other modem critics ; and, nfore ef^se- 
dally, that of BemeJt^ and Rfifle, To 
Mr. Ws ediiioo are likewifc prefixed, 
1, A lift of the Roman confuis during

The works of Fisvius Arrianus have 
lately received im|>rovement from two 
editors, 1795. Aug. ChriHian Bor-

Venice edition of 1535, Stephens's of 
1575, and thofc ot Gronovius ^od ' 
Raphelius, particularly the third of 
their, has formed a new apd improved 
text of this Brft volume, cuntainint^ the 
exjicdition of Alexander ttie Great. 
In the margin the parallel palFigts of * 
Curtijs, Diodorus Siculus, and JuiHr) 
are pointed out. The (ciond volume 
is to contain the Indica, tnc Pcripius,

** My dear old friend, 
** And now ray only dear old friend, 
for your name£Uie Colborn is dead; he 
died laft winter of a cold, caught by offi- 
ciating on the Faft-day i He has left one 
daoghter, I believe in pretty good circum* 
ftances { for a friend of his, (bme time 
agoe, fettled upon hier twenty^pounds a 
year; and he, no doubt, hat left her 
ibaaething coufiderable himfelf. 

«I am pleafed with the ilanzat yoo

eigb^'fefeh s and if you have been at 
yudng, in your attempt on the tUatb of 
Aket-i ic will do you credit. That nirork 
I have read, and think it deferves that 
wotption it has met withalL 

^The libel you mentioo, I hare. not 
feen ; but I have feen nomberlefs papers, 
which Ihew that our body politic it 
far from being in perfeA iiealth. As

under the neceffity of borrowing a hnd 
to write this. God grant me grace under 
this darknols, to lee more dtturly things 
inviiibiB and eternal, thole great things* 
which you and I rouft foon be acquainted 
with I and why not rejoice at it ? There - 
if not a d.iy of. my long life that I delire. 
to repeat ; and at fourfcore it i& all Ishmr 
md^r0mt. Wbat then have we to do ? 
Bat one thing remains, and in that one 
bleflisd be God| by his aOifl^nce, we are 
five of fucccit. Let nothing therefore lye 
btavy on your heart; let us rely on Him 
who hat deoe fo great things for us ; that

wbenefcr the/ como IrDm* the heart; 



and fure rewarJer of all thofe who love 
Him, and put their trad in his mercy. 

'< Let us not be difcontented with thiir 
world ; that is had, but it is dill woife « 
to be fiti^fied with it, fo fatisfied, as noC 
to be very anxious for fomething mofOb.

Mr. Urban, Feb. 1$. 

THE late Lord TrimUflt'WH waa 
thr ^Tkmai r^corjdcd by Archdall 
as ihc'thiitcentb lord, and an aftive 
member of the volunteer aiTuciatidns, 
He was alfo an excellent and worthy 
nobleman : indulgent to an cxtenfive, 
and now by his paternal caie, a flou* 
nihing tenantry, amiable in his mano 
ners, and truly beneficent in bis 
difpofiticn, 

A fecond marriage of his fath/tr, and 
th« conftquent alienation of his affec- 
tion, involved the late lord for many 
veara in the mofl- ungratefol of- all. 
firuiitionSt a familv-Iawfuit with his ' 
younger and half* brother, in whofe 
f<^«nur his father bad made fiich ex- 
tenfive leafes of his entailed eflatas aa 
to reduce Lord Thomai to a very 
flrniler incnroe for many years.of h*a 
life *. He fucceeded in eftabliftiBg hia 
claims; but, as he had kiiowa adver- 
(ity, he felt, when prol'perous, how 
great were the c!aiinf of tbofc who 
needed his alfiftaocc. 

His fuccejQor, the pre fen t lordj w^s , 
not, as your correipoQdent ftatcs, the 
Luid VtliQOunt Ktn^and ; but a Mr. 
Bainwall, the. fiiA*counB;Of the lat^ 
pejcr, whOft though by birth and. early 
education an Jiilhman^ was fo lotg 
refidant in France, b«fore the revolu* 
lion, as to have acquired the title of 
Li Comptt^ Bstnitutaii.' His foa, the 
Hon. Thomas Barnwalt, is married to 
the daughter of Mr. Kirvan, a gentle* 
man celebrned for having, in his . 
learned teifure, explored the rtieoceof 
cKemiftry fo oeeply as to have gone 
f»ir beyond the. profefQonsl laboura 
of the ableft chemifU of our time. 

The Kiag/Un4 family is very diftant* 
ly jcl4te4 to the TrimUftifutm branch., 
inipmuch that, as i hjive not time ta. 
look into ArchdalU I doubt whether 
they defceod from any of the Lords of 
7rim(ifio<wn* 

The late Lord, with the honouraUo 
pride of a noble family, at a very great ■_ 
expence, repaired the old mAOTiat 
caitle of Rabuck, wiihin three milea. 
of Dubjln j an4 it now forms one of,

AS Dr. Withering hat adnntted 
fome fp^^ic* ><i^o his new ar*^ 
rangementof britiih plants, which haviB 
not hitherto been acknowledged na- 
tives of this country ; I beg leave^ 
through the medium of your Maga- 
zine, to offer a few remarks upon 
them. 

Irii XtpbiuMt infertfd upon the au- 
thority of Dr. Nafli in his Hi (lory of 
Worceftcr£h'>re, wherein he aflertv 
that the duchefs dowager of Portland 
found it by the river-fide near Flad- ' 
buryi and in other parts of that county* 
Qtj. Is not this the fpecies which Ge- 
rard mentions growing wild in the vi- 
cinity of Bath and Wells f 

The Iris GermMea^ admitted into 
Dr. Berkenhout's Synopfis, h very 
properly omitted by Withering. 

Epimtdium Afp'tnum, This Dr. W* 
has given upon very flight teftimony» 
and principally with the view of after- 
raining whether h is really a native or 
nor. It feems to have been conlidercd 
by OUT herbalifls and older botanifit 
as a very rare and curious plant. 

Cjclsmtw EmropiHm. Mr. Wood* 
ward hns a(rQred Dr. W. that this has 
been f^nd in Suffolk. In the time of 
Gerard, ic grew upon the mountains of 
Wales, Lincoin(hire and Somerfetfliicci 
hut, as it has not been difcovered in the 
fituations he menrions fince then, there 
is great reafon to fufpeft its legitimacy. 

Liucojttm ^^hfuwi. Mr. Curtis fi^ft 
found this in England growing by the 
river next Greenwich, as alfo m the 
Ifle of Dogs, Gerard enunrerates five' 
roots of Ltuctjmm (including the 
itjii'vum) all of which, he fays» " do 
growe neere unto the (ea fide about 
Colcheftcr, in the Ifle of Man, neere 
Prefton, in AuDderneffe, and about 
Wca chelter." . ' * 

Titiipa fyivi/ris was firft adopted by. 
Dr. Smith as a n.ituraliztd plant : there* 
is however no ground to entitle it to a 
higher rank m the Bii(i(h Flora.

as I am an odd foct of being, that takes > 
little upon trnft that 1 can invefltg;ite,

God, it faves about one-third of the 
coal ufually confumcd by laying fires, 
burns much more pleafantly, and does 
not become hollow if one forgets to llir

THE ftraiajsein of affixing indecent 
words to the facred tunes, dearcft 
to the Romilh fuperftition, was carried 
into complete e£fed in the infancy of 
the Rfformatioa in Scotland. « The 
furtous hatred of Popery (fays B fliop 
Percy) led the Prefbyteriaas to employ 
their rhymes in a raoft licentious man- 
ner. It is a icccived tradition in Scot- 
lantl, that, at the time of the Reforma- 
tion, ridiculinis and obfcene fongs were 
compofcd i« be fang by the rabble to the 
luoes of the moft javouriie hymns in 
the Lat:n fervice. •• GrtinflttVts mmd

explore the celebrated RykeuHd-Areet

tainly remains in the mod perfe£l flate

change from the ctofe attention to old 
pafchmcnts, and the neceflary lludies 
for a County Hiftory, to be thus en- 
chgnciBglf led along fuch venerable, I 
lud aliDoft (hid facred, ground, in com- 
pany with oaa whoie mind is not only 



replete with cFaflical erudition, but 
who had formerly examined ftmilar 
ro'ids in Italy, though none, he con- 
fefled, fo wide and beautiful as the 
part which then arretted from his pea 
the following very peitinent delcrip- 
tion : 

• If any remains of venerable antiquity 
may claim the attention, or even a dillaiar 
vilit, fi^m all who have the lead cariofity 
for fuch refearches, it is the lienild fVmy ia 
itscourfe through Sutton Park, and acrofis 
the Colfield. It is here a very fpacions 
road, not lefs tlian 60 feet in breadth; and, 
thmifh the furface be in gcf>enl oveiTua 
with heath, and, for a fhort fpace in tho 
Park, owrfpread with oaks di confidera- 
ble magnitude, yet the regularity of its &»• 
gure has not been dilbirbed by the lipfe oC 
14 centuries. It is formed by gravel and. 
materials on the fpot; liigh raifed ia the 
centre, with a gpntle flbpc to the borders 
on each fide, where it is Ikirted by tl|0 
glitters from which it was in part cafl upu . 
The admirable prefervation of its original 
ntyHiOty of furface to the extent of fomr 
miles is owing to the fi>lloivingcircumftan» 
ces : firft, its fituacion on gruund where tho 
bufy transforming hand of culture has never 
intruded, being for a mile and a half io- 
clofed in a park, and, beyond that, ex- 
tending more than a mile on the South, 
and nearly a mile on tlie Noith, fide the 
park over a dreary defert, the afpedl o( 
which does not appear to have been changed 
lince the time of the Romrms ; and", ttfly^ 
it is not in ufe as a public ru id for carriages^ 
nor are any marks of ruts or other iifequafl* 
ties from fridlion vifihle on its furfice. 

<< Its proximity to an allowed Roman 
ftation at W'all, o/Zot ^tocetem, where it 
interfedb another Roman road of eqaal ce- 
lebrity, renders it, if poflible, an object of 
higher regard. The names of the adjacepft 
vilbiges. Wall and Chefterfield, give the 
moft (atisfadory confirmation to the cbim 
of this neighbourhood ^s exhibiting Uftiiig . 
mcmuneients of Roman grandeor. Nor can 
any ingenuous mtnd view fnck ftrikiiig tcf- 
ti monies of hiftoric tructi without unufoal 
emotion."

'< Quo femel e(t imbuta recens, feryabit

ivde to was Mr. Rofs the player. 

Permit me, my youn^ and learned 
friends, to fay a word of Bonne! Thorn- 
ton's tranfiarion of the play in qucf- 
tion« And| (irfr, as to the title Amlit- 
Mria. I am to contend it ought to 
have been tranflated "The Caiket,»' 
9!id not <' The Miftr." Does not £u* 
clio'Siohtaining, hispofTefling, his lo.* 
fiAg» and his recovermgy '*the caiket" 
of gcAif make up the principal buii- 
ncf« throughout the comedy? BeHdet, 
Thornton htmfdf had a precedent ; 
forj he notifies that an Italian tranf- 
lated this play of Plautus, and that he 
caliett it Aulalarim^ faom the vefiel or 
pot in which was the Mifer's treafure; 
and fo he calls his, for the fame rea- 
fon> *•£« Spirts," "The Baikct." 
See Thornton's note at the end of the 
play in ther fecood volume of hit tranf- 
lation* And Moltere, the French 
Writer, calls it L* Avars, 1 fuppofe all 
, thefe comic poets rely on the rhetorical 
figure Profopopceia in their defence ; 
nrhicb pats me in mind of a boy, who 
pleaded the grammatieal Bgure Syn- 
cope upon another occaAon, bat, I 
think, upon much better grounds. Give 
ine leave to trouble you wiih the anec* 
dote. A fchoolfellow of mine at Bury^ 
^'hom the mafter, who was the Rev. 
Mr. Arthur Rynnefman, and, I have 
been informed, had been one of the 
nihers at Wellminfter, could not make 
comprehend the meaning of Syncope, 
delivered an cxercife containing no- 
thing more than tht fubjefl: of the 
theme at top, and his name and date 
ZX bottom. The mailer called the 
flripling up, and aiked him what had 
got the middle part of his exercife. 
«' That is out by Syncope/' fays the 
boy. Our pedagogue ivas fa pleafedy 
that he gave the lad half-a*crown« 

ThoinroR; in the note Uft aboTt 



cited, obfervesj that the Italian's ver- 
fion is very far from a tranflation, the 
author having not only adapted the 
names, but alfo the manners, to thofe 
•f his countrymen, the Florentines; 
and yet Thornton himfelf, in his firft 
note, infortps us, that his reafon for 
adopting the title given this play bv 
Shadwell and Fielding was, becaufe 
" The Mifer" was more familiar to the 
Englijh ear ; and fee his note to v. 4^

<< The Merchant" in Englilh, but 
gives the paflage in Latiu. This feeme 
to be deficient in propriety; 'fee p. 194. 
of the tranilation in ^ellion. Again, 
he tranflates '< ego ufacUm madidum^'^ 
in vcr 103, aft III. fcene fr, " you 
ihali 'be foaked with wine feas over ;'* 
qu. *^ you (ball be drenched with

ad IV. fcene I. the literal tranflation 
feems to be better than his. Thefe 
remarks ars not made in malempsrtimf 
but I Aatter myfelf they may in fome 
meafure, perhaps, prove acceptable to 
fome of you. Nothing but an emana- 
tion of gratitude; io return for the

as T find t^at your oorrcfpondeot has at< 
Uckcd me upon a fuppolition that I wis 
the author of the letter figned W. f . 
vol. LXVI. p. 1005^ I muil requeft 
you toinfenwt io your next Magi* 
ziiiCy to ihew that petulant gentlemjui 
'on what trifling ground he reds his 
inalif!oiry. I folemnly aflfure you, 
that I was not the writer of that letter ; 
aad that I never heard of, nor (aW, the 
letter, till, after hating read tine re- 
marks of Antt-Theriitei, 1 was indu- 
ced 10 refer to ir. I leave you to judge 
with what fbirit Anti-Therfites wrote, 
when he took fuch anoccaiion to actick 
me, not fcrupling to lay to my account 
a thing of wnteh I was totally ignorant. 
But I nave been fo accuflomed to this 
mode of treatment from the Cabal in 
Cambridge, that it novvceafes to make 
' upon me any impreHiun. 

With refpe^ ro t,he Arcadians, the 
nature of my defence at Cambridge, 
and my contempt of the Cubicjcs, 1 
ihall fay nothing, becaufe my fcnti- 
ments are fully explained in the two 
pamphlets on the Proceedings in the 
Unirerfity, and Appeal to the Court of 
Sing's-bench, pubhihed by myfelf, and 
BOW to be hid. at Robinfons, Pater- 
noflerorow. But, as Anti-Tbeifitea 
refers his riaders xo my pamphlet, 
'* Peace and Union,** to be had at the 
fame bookfeller's, I do the fame ; 
wifhing them only to confidcr, that a 
happy change has taken pUce in pub- 
lic opinion Hncc the firft appearance of 
that pamphlet; and that the rcforovf, 
recommended in it, will not now be 
deemed fufficient by us, whom' Mr. 
Burke is pleafed to call the 80. coo iu- 
coirigibles. I rejoice in thinking, that 
he has neither mis-ftated our numbers, 
nor denied the firmnefs of our fpirit : 
and, as the (yftem of tfp'to^cgt ana 
alarm is daily loiing its influence, I 
have not the Icaft doubt, that the pure 
love of the Conflitution will return to 
the breads of many of our mifguided 
countrymen ^ that they will unite with 
us in deteftiog corruption and fa^ion ; 
and that, by our mutual, prudent^ 
^adual, and irreiiftible, efforts, thefa- 
crcd caufc in which we are engaged 
win triumph over all its enemies. 

As to the (jueltion on black »i)d 
white coats, it is almoft too ridicubus 
a fubjed to employ a moipent's difcuf- 
iioo. Independent men wear what 
cloth they like ; and I fliatl never 
ouarrel with a man about the cut of hit 
peard. He muft be i^ea( finiiicr to 



both Univerfities, who does not know 
fome perfoBS, who, after wearing the 
black uniform, and being engaged a few 
campaigns, 'have (juitted the I'ervice. 
1 couhi name with cafe feveral of thia 
defcription, well known in the Univer- 
Aty of Cambridge, four of whom are 
fenior, and one junior, to mvfelf ;' and 
of them, two, if not three, were Fel- 
lows of Colleges. When the fpirit 
which tinged the coat was evaporated^ 
the colour was naturally changed. 

YourCorrefpondent hints, that, be- 
caufe I have been fo much perfecutcd 
myfelf, I am likely in my turn to be- 
come a perfecutor. Time niooe can 
rel'olve the queftion : hut he is very 
welcome to my prefent thtmghts ; ac* 
cording to which, if I were under the 
neceility^f paiiing fentence on the Cu* 
bicks for their fad condu£^, J would 
difmifs the whole body, the twenty- 
feven, the quiMqutviri^ and^the dgttm*

IT is natural for the diflreljcd to fccjc 
for relief j and it is but too common 
for the unpiited to repine. My malady 
is fuch ai> few experience, and there- 
fore what excites little commiferation : 
yet it h to me a matter of peculiar con- 
cern, and particularly at this prefent 
period, ^ut as 1 urge no other claim 
to your infertion hereof than that of 
humanity, and the probability of l>cing 
able 00 future occafions to furniOi you 
with articles mere iniercfting, I (hall 
in a few wnrds endeavour to give fomtf 
i4ea of my cafe. Every winter, for S 
years pall, my hands have been de- 
formed and tormented with thofe red 
fwcllings or txcrefcences called chil- 
blains, and to fuch li degree that 1 have 
often in fomc meafurc been a bnrthch 
to rnvrdf and thiife around me; nor 
have I everhad an opportunity of fee- 
ing any perfon afflided with them to 
fuch a degree as myfclf. I have con* 
fulted medical knowledge on the fub- 
je6l both at home and abroad, and ap- 
plied various medicines ; but the utmoft 
lienent 1 have experienced from them 
was only momentary or temporary rew 
lief. The decree or uneahnei^ I endure

PERMIT me ro otfer the roilowing 
atrem|yt to explain the d.fiiculty 
propofed in p. 17, 

Gatgacus had, immediately bc» 
fore/ been teliiog the Briioos, thac 
they had been hitherto prekrved from 
invafioD merely by having lived in a 
corner of the world, in a retired 
pjrt, QUI of the reach of fame. Now, 
however, fays he, this cauTe of ftifety 
is ai an end : they have obtained know- 
ledge of the very boundary of ouc 



and good rcafoning of Tacitus, I )m- country (kumc ttrmhus Bruanni^t pa- 



racdiately referred to the palf^ge al- 
luded ^o, and am h;<ppy in being able 
CO give him an explanation, which I 
hope «ilJ prove fattsfa^ory. 

Nothing can be mure icgular than 
the whoU riain of reafoning which 
Galgacus addrtlfes to the Britooi. He 
begins with obfervlog, thac he enter- 
ta ns the greatefi hopes of luccefs 
from the eatremc danger of their fitn- 
aiion, %vhich muft make even cowards 
brave. In former CDgagexncnxs, the 
N.itioahad refuurces of hrpe iu them; 
for, p'nced »n thie in mod receflts of 
Bricatn, not even their eyes had been 
p<Jluted by the fif^ht of fervile Ibores. 
At the farthcft limirs both of land and 
liberty, they had been hitherto defend- 
ed by fame and the lemctenefs.of their 
fiiuation ; but now tirminus BritMunia 
faiit^ mtqui omnt ignetmm prt mag^ific9 



ttt). He then lays down a principle 
(omnt fgm§tumfr9 magaiji.oifl), which* 
the.r own fenles would iiiimediaiely 
tell them* operates very powertullf up- 
nn the hum.^n mind, and demondrates, 
by a variety of arguments, that the 
Rom^ni are inordinately actuated by 
its impulfc; and that therefore they 
(ihe Btitons) had no alrcrnative but 
reHftance or ruin. 

The fuppoGiion of Philo-Tac:tu»« 
that Agriiula mi{«ht not know that m 
la:ge tra£^ of country lay beyond the 
Grampian hills, is evidently froundr 
lefs ; fioce we are informed by Tacitus 
h'mfcif, that the Romans, who, before 
the ia/l battle, were very cautious and 
prgdeut, weic, a/ttr that baiUty im- 
patient to prneirate into the very heart 
of C*ie^onia, and to moi^e rni hjf m

had infptred the Romans with ideas of 
difficulties ynd dangers; but, as they 
bad DOW penetraied to tbe extremities 
oC the Ifland, neither of thefe two 
caufies could cnntioue to. operate in 
their favour. B«yot>d them, he pro- 
ceeds to obferve* li nothing buX wavca 
and rockj. 

tirminus. BriinnnU pAUt Is not to be 
taken in too An^t >nd literal a fenfe. 
Tbeaflertioni however, might ba made 
^ith ihe greaied juflice, as there was 
no n%iion beyond them capable of af- 



The difficulty appears to have pro- 
ceeded from a milconrep:icn of the 
meaning of " nunc terminus Britaonix 
pxteti" and, if my feeb e efFi^rt (hnuid 
be indrumenial in removing it, 1 Ihaii

circumdance, that mav operate in the 
determination of the Rawleian cuntro-

permuted to have its proper weight in

has holdly denied his tvn bttving fiim

1 30 Proceidings In tbi prcfint Seffi§n of Parliament. [ Feb. 



The Earl of Radnor took theufgal 
oaths on his firft comine to the Houfe 
Ciice the meeting of the NewPail'Bfnent. 

In the Comment the fame day, a 
new writ was ordered for Hif^ham 
Ferrars, in the room of Mr. Serjeant 
Admir, who has accepted the office of 
Chief Juftice of Chetter. 

The Spgaktr infoimed the Houfe, 
that Alexander Morris, whom the 
Chairman of the Committee on the 
Soutbwark £le£lion |>etition had mo^ed 
to be taken into cuftody, was now in 
the cuftody of the Seijcant at Arms s 
upqn which. 

The Ms/ltr $ftbt Mb moved, that 
the faid Alexander Morris do Aand 
committed ; and that, on Monday next, 
he be brought to the bar of the Houfe. 
^Agreed to. 

Mr. C«/(/, purfuant to the notice he 
had given, rofe to mnke his'motion for 
leave to bring in a Bill for regulating 
the Trials of Caufes and Indictments 
that arife within the limits of certain 
towns»corporate in this kiDi;dam. The 
bbJcA of this Bill was merely ;(i leave 
jt at the option of the parries who had 
caufes to try, to have them tned in 
dieir own di^rLds» or take them to be 
tried in the county at large : for, it was 
not now as of old, when caufes were 
tried by neighbours, .and as it were 
at home, without any oblUu^ion ari- 
fing to the courfe of juRice. Many 
abufcs 'had crept in by time, which 
rendered the obtaining of juftice in 
this manner frequently impradicable. 
Por thefe he referred to the towns of 
Pool and of Hull. Thofe alio who 
Hood accufed of felony might aifo, in 
order to obtain a fair trial, get rcmo* 
▼edy by their Habeas Corpus, to the 
county gaol. His wifli was, t'herefore, 
to introduce a gentler courfe of )uftice, 
and not to abridge the jurifdi£kion of 
thefe towns.— >In that view, he would 
now move, as above^ *' that leave be 
given," &c. 

Mr. Li Ftvre feconded the motion ; 

which was agreed to, and a Conimittee

up from the Commons. 

in the Commons the fame diy. the 
Bill for removing the Lent Aiiixes fiom 



Thetford to Norwich was brought upf 
and read the firft time. 

Mr. Bircb prefented a petition from 
the Corporation of that Borough, that 
the removal of the affizes would be at-, 
tended with ereat inconveniences to 
the North WeRern parts of thecourfty 
of Norfolk, and therefore praying to 
be heard by themfeives or counfel a- 
g^inft the bill. Ordered to lie on the' 
table, and to be heard by counfel on the 
fccond reading of the bill. 

Sir R. P, Ardm prefented a petition 
from certain £le€h)rs of the coontv of 
Flint, dating, that SirT/>«asj5 Mafyn^ 
who was returned for that county, was 
under age, and therefore ineligible to 
feive in Parliament, and complaining 
of the conduct of the Sheriff. 

Another petitipn was prefented from 
the Hon. John Lloyd Kinyon, dating, 
that he had the greateft number of le- 
gal votes for the county of Flint, and 
that he ought to have been returned. 

After fome converfation between ^ir 
R. Ardtu and fome other Members,' 
the ad of March was appointed for 
cbnHderin^the petitions. 

Sir E KnatcBMl niovti, that Alex- 
ander Morris, in cudody of the Ser- 
jeant at Arms, be brought to the bar 
of the Houfe, for contempt, in refa« 
fing to attend the Committee appointed 
to try the meriu of • the Souihwark 
cle£tion. 

Mr.Moirit being brought to the bar; 

The Spiaktr informed hrm, that he 
had been duly ferved with a warrant 
to attend that Committee, and de- 
manded to know what reafon he had 
to offer for difobeying th ^t order ? 

Mr Morris acknowledged that he 
had received the warrant, but faid he 
was not aware at the time that by his 
non-attendance he Ihould incur the 
difpleafure of the Houfe. He dated 
the caiife of his non-attendance to be 
4>wing to the embarr^ffment of his pri- 
vate affairs at the time, and from a re- 
gard to his perfonal fecurity. He was 
extremely forry for having offended^ 
and was willing to make any apology. 
He hoped the Houfe would favour- 
ably confider his fituation, and deal as 
lenient %vith him as poffible. 

Mr. M. being ordered to withdraw; 

After a few words from Sir £. Knatch." 
buU, he moved, ^* That Alexander 
Morris, having been ferved wiih a war- 
r^ut to attend a Committee of that 
Houfe, which he had difobeyed, had 
been guilty of a Breach of PaTiUge."'

The ftrong dife:ife within his breaft 
Clang mofid the fprings of life ; 

There, harpy-like, ir kept its holdy 
In fpighi of Biorul Itrife.

Each day (he fiw grim Death approach.

Each day new hope (VnilM fre(h on him. 

And hid the coming doom. * 

No child had ftie to comfoyt her. 

When Donald he is gone;. 
Pale Sorrow fat her ct\eeks upon. 

Her foul as dull as ftboe. 

At length the fatal day is come. 
For, nought could Donald f^ve; 

He's gone! he's gonel he's dfAd and 
gone I 
And lies in yonder grave t \ 

Where (he alone, all drown'd in tean^

She frantic calls opon her love^ 
And afksof heav'n relief. 

Now time Iiath dry'd her teais away^

My Lord, I ha^e die honour to in- 
foiTn y6ur Loidfhip, that, in the nig||l)t 
from th6 2 til to the 2 2d, tiw trenches 
were opened' he f<.)re K<;hl, oh the right 
bank of tbe Rinzag. The flrft^par.-Ulel 
of this-aitabk, wi;;.h its comaiim:cati</ii| 
proceeding from the right f nd left flank of 
the right wing of the line of contrava^Ia- 
titm, xwere Co far completed during t^ 
night, that before day-bieaik the men 
were totemhly covered. The enetpy did 
not attempt vtt interrupt tbe workiuor had

h« yet itni a fimglc fluit fipMi the trenches ; 
but early yei^erday mmning (che 221!) he 
made a fuaden attack upon the lire of cOn- 
trava!lati6r, and» after an adioa than 
which nothiiiR could pbliihljr be more 
fevf.re, was driven back into his works 
with very great loft. The enemy havings 
iu the coiirfe of the night from the aift 
to flic lid, Virmight «ycr a lirge*hody of 
troops Yrom Str:t(bui5h| foimed his co- 
lumn oT ailnck cl<»fe behind tlie chnin of 
his advanced po^s, witli fo much filence 
tlot they were not percHveil. Juft hefore 
t^e break oif day (which however was 
renderrd extremely ohfcure by a veiy 
thick mii^, that laAed the greater part of 
the forenoon) thefe columns hegnn to ad- 
vance. The inftaat the Audrian vi^lettes 
and centries give their fire, whidi was 
the only notice of the appro;4ching attack, 
the enemy's inCaniry rufhed on with the 
utmoft impetuofity, without firing a (hot, 
and in an inftant thry were maflers of 
rwo redoubts on the left of the firft line.. 
The vilbge of Sundheim was attacked in 
the (ame manner, and with equA fnccefs; 
after which, cnm*ng in the rear of the 
curuin which coiineiflK the village with 
the firfl redoubt to its kft, the enemy 
immediatefy carried the work, one face 
of which was not quite fini(bed. Upon 
.this, large boUies of their infantry rulhed 
through tiie openings in the curtains on the 
left front of this wiiig 1 and, whiUl part 
advanced againfl the fecond linCf the others 
endeavoured to make dierofelves maders 
bf the i-emaining redoubts of the firft ; 
but thefe, though perfectly left to them- 
felves for a confuierable time, entirely 
furrounded, cut otf from every nOiilance, 
ah 1 attacked with fury b) the enemy, who 
fre {uently got into the ditclies, and at- 
tempted to climb the par;' pet, were de- 
fended in a manner that iefle£\s the 
liigheft honour on tlie oflicers and tionps 
that were in them- — The lofs in all iliefe 
tedottbtswas confideraHle, and in t)re the 
artillery -men were ob'igtd to fire^ the 
guns, but all the attacks were lepulfed. 
The enemy's right column, atter occupy- 
ing the two works which they hiid car- 
ried, puihed on between the lakes to 
attack the left of the fccond line; but 
Prince Frederick of Orange (whofe gal- 
lant and judicious condu^ cannot iuf- 
ficiently be praifed) having rallied his 
brigade, placed a part of his infantry be- 
hind the dyke, which coniie£i& the thnl 
redoubt fiom the left of the HvA line 
with the worK which is on the left of 
the fecoivl ; and in this fltnation he i-e- 
f;(led the moft fevcre attack that can be 
imagined n|K)n his front : vwhilc ihote 
b>'>d cs of the enemy's infantry, which 
tiad pierced between the redoubt of thd 
firfl hiYe, were actually in his reir, he 
o*i ufity maintained his poft^. but 



ciMhpletely cbeck«>d the teneifiys prbsereb 
on this flank. A great part of the iroops 
of the Ir-ft wing liad been working in th« 
trenohes on the right of tlie Kinzig. Ge- 
neral La Tour, who commands the army 
of tlM fiege, formed three of theft bat- 
talionsy which happened to be jitd retnrn- 
ing from work, aiid retook the village of 
Sundheim, which he maintained, thoogh 
the eoemy made great efforts to di^ndc^c 
him. Livut. Gen. Staader, who com- 
mands tlie left wing, drove hack the fcno- 
my, who had advano^d againft the right 
of the fecoml line of it, and ratook Uio 
redoubt on tiie lefc of Sundheim ) and tlie 
Prince of 0> ange, advancing betwe^-n the 
two dykes, defviited the column with which 
he had been fo feverely engaged* and 
recovered the redoubts it had carriej. 
The enemy tliea retired into his en- 
trenched camp. The lofs of the Auf- 
trians amonotod to 45 officers, and about 
t200 men, kille>U wounded, and mitling» 
which, confidering that not more than 
half the left wing was engaged, is cer- 
tainly confiderable { hut that of the French* 
moft have been much greater. The 
ground round the works was in fomo 
parts covered with tl»eir deid bodies, and 
I am very much witiiin hounds in ftating 
their lofs at 2000 men. During the time 
the French were in poflenfion of the re- 
doubts on the left, they f^>und means to 
carry off Ave pieces of cannon. The others 
were all re-t;tken. It is impolTihkt to 
attempt to do jullice to the conduct of 
the Archduke ; he animated the troops 
in retaking Sundheim, direAed the at- 
tacks on the work th.it h.id been loft t# 
the left of it, and, undttr tlie heavieft fire, 
gave hi!i orders with the greateft cooln«<S| 
and tl e nioft perfeA military knowle^lge. 
Litrut. Proby, of his Majcfty's 9th regi- 
ment of Foot, (attached to Lieut -Col. 
Craufurd's million) was wounded by a 
nuiflcet-ftict ; but I feel great fatisfa^on 
in being ;ible to add that the wound U of 
a very flight nature, and will have no other 
confequence wlutever than that of a very 
ibort confinement. Rob. Ckaupi^kp.

above the cottag<; m as found, out of* which 
iifued a rivulet of wrer. Tlie farmers 
imagine it was owing to Uie hurfling of a

Mn received that two French frigates, a 
cohrettc, ahd a logger, afipeared od the Eaft 
bf P^brdkeOiire; on the aid mHant, and 
od the evening of that day 'difcinhnrked 
frnie troops (reported by deserters to be 
nHbiit X200 men, bdt 'without field pieces.) 
£veiy exertion had been made by the Lord 
Lieoteiiant and gent! -me^i of that county 
and its ne':{;,hbourho<)d for takini; the pro- 
per Aeps on this occfi m ; and the greatell 
zeal and loyalty lia^ been fiiewn by all 
ranks of people. Immediately on an ac* 
coont having been received at Plymouth of 
this force havibt; appeared in the Bhftol 
Channel, frigates were difpatched from 
Plymouth' in qtteft of them. I have the 
hoodortDbe, 5cc. Portland." 

' Tliis letter was folloii'^d in the evening 
by an Extraordtnai7 Gazette ; containing 
the fame fadts, as fiaced in a letter from 
I.ord Miifbnl, Lord Lieutenant of - the 
county of Pembroke j and accompanied 
vhlh the following letter to the Duke of 
Portbnd (roni Lieut. Col. Orchard, com- 
Ddanding the North Devon volunteers. 

** I think it my duty to ftate to your 
Grace that I yederday received an exprefs 
fr'om Ilfiaoombe, mentioning that tlieie 
were three French frigates off that place ; 
that they hadfcuttled feveral mcrcliantmen, 
arid were attempting to Uefiroy the (hip* 
iBg in the harbour. They begged i!>at I 
woulii^mmediately order the North Devon 
regiment of 'volunteers undfcr my a)ir.m:jid 
to march to their aflil^ance. In confe-. 
q»ience of this repreiencatton, I ordered tJie 
men to get ready to marcli as fuon as pslli- 
bte. 1 have great Cuisfadtion in faying, 
Uiat in four hours I fbuoil every oflicer and 
man tliat was ordered to the parade at 
Bidef'ird (fifteen miles from home) ready 
and willing to march to any place they 
fliTiQid be commanded to go to. I cannot 
esprefs the fatlsfadtion I felt on feeing tlie 
tt^n fa willing to defend their King and 
C^jkntry ; at the fame time as filent, or- 
dcny, and fober, as might be expected at 
a morning parade of an old iiegiroent. The 
greaied exenioiis were made by all defcrip- 
tions of people to afiift, and to render every 
fcrvice in their power. As I was prepa- 
riiig to march, I refceiveid an account from 
Ilfracombe, that the French flups were 
gone from the coall, and that tranqelUity 
was again roftored to the town. ' How far 
tbe report vrii well founded, I cannoC

For MARCH, 1797. 



BEING THE THIRD NUMBER OF VOL. LXVH.' PART I. 



Mr. Urban, DuSiiw, March 15. 
^ifl^tf^^ S in the courfe of the 
^ ^ ^^^^ month the return 

v5 A ^ °^ miny of our migra- 
7»v ^ y*\ lory birds may be ex- 
78^ $ft pcfleci, iHow me to 

)e()J^^)f^)j^ recall the artenrion of 

vour readers to this 
inrercning fubjcft ; defuing they w:ll 
carefully Qhferve, whcj^her aoy Swal* 
lows* appear without the long ^athcri 
which form their forked tails ; for, as 
it has been afceitained that the laft 
bnods, at ieift, in every Summer leave 
us before they have attained this dif- 
€iDdioQj if any appear in Spring with- 
out them, fuch may be luppofed to 
have pafTed the Winter in a torpid flate. 

Le( me now communicate a very ex- 
traordinary phxnomcnon concerning 
soother race of birds of paifage, the 
Cuckows, which occurred )a(l Summer 
id the North of Ireland. The follow- 
ing particulars may be depended on. 
In a gentleman's^ garden in the couniy 
of Dowoe (lat. 5*. »3' N.) appeared for 
feveral days (vix. from the i8ih to the 
2 ad of July, 1796^ a great number of 
Cuckbwi, judjge^i ta he between forty 
liiid 6fty at ieaft. They ufually ftt 
upon the buflies, picking, as the gar- 
dentr thought, the ripe goo{ct)errtes 
(but more probably the caterpillars and 
fofcfts f on ihofc flirubs). They 
fee'med to he quite fleepy and dozing {, 
fo as to permit any perfon aimoll to 
touch them, though I do not 6nd that 

*• See an elegant Odo in p. 235. Edit. 

t Like otber birds, that feed chiefly on 
infe^ the Cuckow is in Italy eaten as a 
^reat delicacy. A gentleman, who has 
had this bird on his tabje, informed the 
writer, that the flefh is white, aiul very 
well cafted. Having no incubation, Sec* 
to perform, it is never out of feafon during 
the Spring months ; and, from die abun- 
dance of its food, is extremely fat. 

{ See, in vol. LXVI. p. 116. what Mr. J. 
Lalkey oommun^cated concerning the iuoc 
lA the Swallows. ^DIT* 



any oir aAually (utfcrcd itfelf.to b« 
caught. There wa<; in the gardeo a 
ned of young b-ack-l)irHs, fcarc^y 
fledged : of thcfe the Cuckows dtftrov« 
ti ail but two ; and they were feen to 
tear them to pieces, a^ was judgtd, to 
devour them ; for, the gardener rcfciicd 
one of thefe from'xheir talons, which 
had \\y$ Ug and wing t<->rn off. Some 
few of them, .perhaps not more than 
two or three, cried the note CucKOW, 
ai in Spring, but in a very faint and 
ho^rfe manner. N»r weie more than 
two ever )ieard at the fariic time. ,This 
gaidcn, which contains two acres of 
Irifli planutioQ meafure (that is, more 
than three Englijb ftatute acre^), was 
frequented by mar.y of thefe birds du- 
ring the whple day; but the greateft 
number colle£led in the evening, abouit 
the time the gardeners were quitdog 
their work. After the aid of July te* 
mained 00 1 v pnc pr two, which appear- 
ed to be Tmaller than tfte reft; and ' 
thefe continued there two cr three days 
after all the 'othfcVl wete gone. The 
leffer Uiids yi^ere u6ferv);d to fliy about 
them, an4 ifteir them, as in the Spring. 
The piece'dioj^ account comes froni a 
perfon of undoubted veracity. ' * 

Let me now offer' a foJution df tKc 
difficulty rci^&\ng il^e fail ej Jloiuf 
from ibt ctouds, which I havie heiiurd 
rut;ge(l«d by a Naturalift of ^eat emi- 
nence in this country. It hath been 
afcertaiiied that the elef^rical fluid' is 
fomctimcs ilifcharged from the earthen- 
to the clouds*! or, in other words,«> 
that lightning afcends as well a« de»,

'* it feems truly* llrange that it (hould 
be neceflary to call on the Goveroc'Ft of 
Queen Anne's Bounty for a Hate o{: 
that charity." 1 can tell him fomething. 
ftitl more fl range : one of my churchca . 
has a double bounty ; bmt it is lb iif 
from being at the expcnce of the fund,. 
^ tlat, ever lincc the augmentation, the. 
fund itfclf has been thgtgby augBicnted. 
The cafe is this : 4||^ ^'^'^ yean 
ago the bounty was purcmi^ ;. in con* 
fcquence of which the goUernors sipj^ro* 
piiaied 400 1. for which tMby pay co-thc

U(baA,ifthe20ol. inHeadof purchaftog 



t84 ^^^'oiis and unpteajfanf OperattoA of ^een Anne*8 Bounty. [Mrf; 



received, for more than 30 years pail, 
an augmentation of toi. pir annum i 
fo thai, when tkcfc wiflied-for accounts 
app.ar before the publick, they will 
exhibit rlc articie of 81. ptr annum, 

paid to the ch'.rch of S ; whilU the 

fa£t rcaliv is, ibat the fund itfelf has 
f6r fo many yrars been augmented by a 
llfih part of ihatinier.ft, the whole of 
iwhficii w«s intenckd by the donor for 
the ufc of the mintHer. 

It will be (aid, that this is the fault 
of the incumhetit himfclf : for I well 
]cnow, that the leafbn held out by the 
governor? fot allowing oh'\ 2I. per e/nt. 
is» that the irc"m'<em ihould be mt^re 
arfiiduotis in look>rg ont for apurchaic. 
To this lean only fav, that, whatcvtr 
may have been the fact- sty of finding a 
purchafc foimerly, or however rfiv pic- 
dectlT^r, who was a boolcifli man, nnd 
not unknown in the literary \rorU% 
inight have negU£)cil to do fo, the va- 
lue of land if in thefe days fo well un- 
<Iei(lond, dvd fmal) purchafes are fo 
cageily fought after nnd fo fpecdily 
caught up tn \c a miniAer mufl he Ibarp 
indeed, as \ve1l as pretty knowing in this 
kind of traffic (fo far umoved from the * 
line of his pr«»icn*Yor.a) dutie!>), Co meet 
with a purchafr likelv to he approved (»fj 
I fay likely, hcriu'c, Dotwiioftanding 
thccivilitv and ; T'ciiion which yourccr- 
rcfpondcnt (i XVI. 108S.) had, upon 
lomc other occaM''>n, the ^ojd fortune to 
meet wifh i the cufp;>la:flts mcnt oned 
(p. S36.) are too well founded to adir.it 
,ef a que Dion. 

For my own part Mr. Uiban, T nc* 
ver had, except cnce, even ihe ibadow 
..of a chance, which 1 thought w ^uld be 
•f any fer?keto the church ; and then 
•the owner of tb« land (a gentleman 
^converfant in the law) plainly told me, 
it was a roaitcr actecded with fo much 
trouble to treat with the govemo's of 
the Queen's bounty, that he would have 
nothing to no with ihem. To this I 
could fay but little ; for, I had too fre- 
quently lM:ard complaints ot a like na- 
ture J and more- ver, I had myfclf, at 
the requell ot a neighbouring clergy- 
man, once waited upon their then fcli* 
citor, at his chambers in the Temple, 
about a puichim' but was treated in 
fuch a fut)ereilious, cavalier manner, 
that I hardly know whether I fhoiild 
have had cc'Urage to have appeared be* 
fore this great man the fecond time. 

How long it may be until all the fmall 
livings are augmented to 50 1. pgr ann* 
I know HOC) but ic is fomewhat unfoc* 



toiiate, that of my thr^e churches, cack 
of which is flill entitled to the bounty, 
notwithdanding the Ibfing purchafc a- 
bovemcntioned. it fliould not have fal- 
len to the lot of any one of them to \)t 
augmented in the urdinarv way, though 
almoft a century hai elapfcd fince the 
fund was Br(V eftablifiied. 

T'^ the ihort but curious fpecimen 
of a dialogue between a patron and his 
cletk (p. S26) I will add what I know 
to be a£^ually true* There are in- 
ftances, and it is to be feared not a 
few, where the grea^ proprietor of the 
parifli opei^ly a«d avowedly ufes hi6 
power to keep down the value of the 
lithcy not for the eafe of his tenants, 
but for his own benefit. In fuch cafes, 
a poor incumbent can do but little $ 
but, if the governors of the queen's 
bounty would take the trouble of look- 
ing into endowments, fuch at lead as 
might be prefented to them for that 
pu pofe, and interpofe where they 
thought it was right fo to do, they 
would, perhaps, do more for the fmall 
livings in twenty years than, in the' 
ufu^l way of augmenttttioD, they could 
patfiblv accompliih in a hundred.

The Scripture fays of Noah, that he

Ovid points the (tern of the ihip that

*' pi^ colorihua uftis

The habits of Cybele's priefls were

Koiate of mercury muft be put ; or, four 
ounces of arfcni^k may be boiled in 
two quart) of water* till all, or the 
Hreatetl part, be d'ffjlved. Sufpend 
the bird by the bill to dr^in ; then 
ftrew the in fide with a powder made 
of four parts of tob.icco-fand, four pirts 
of pounded pepper, one part of hurnt 
tlttin, and one p^it of corrofive fubli- 
aiate^ or arfen^k { then fill the body 
with oakum« or tow, fieeped in the 
aboTC liquor. Sew up the vent*hole 
made for extra6ling the entrails with a 
thread fieeped in the liquor \ t^ke out 
the toogoe, and fcoop out the brain

birdf gently in an oven, taki;ig care 
thai the heat is not too powerful, which 
may be known by a feather or <i hair 
put for trial-fake into it 1 which^ if 
adequate to the purpofe, will nciihtr 
crilp, curly nor bend. If at any time 
the bird gets moift, h^ve recourfe to 
the oven, or a gentle fire, which will 
/oon recover its lofi elafiicity, and pre- 
ferye it (with care) for ages. £yes 
may be procured at any gUfi manufac- 
tory ; or they may be bought at any of 
the' dealers in birds and curiofities in 
London; or the e>e-fockcts may be 
filled with putty, and painted accoid-

The recipe of the late Sir Alhton 
I^ever, for tiie above purpofe, was a 
fliixture of one pound of f<ilr, four 
ouncci of a! urn, and two ounces of . 
b^ack pepper I in every other matirr 
as before, except the ufe of the liquid^ 
and drying the fubjcCi by the oven. 
ilc fufpcada the bird by the feet in a 



fine cool airy place, for the falts to im* 
pregoate the «body ; afterwards, by a 
thread run throegh the under mandi-

I HAVE lately purchafcd the valu-

of our Englifli ^(chyius mufi feel 
bimfclf under the greateft obligat^nus

pafiages makes the old 'Bard fliine 
with renovated lufire. He, however, 
is confcious of the exuberance of 
notes that are fiibjoined to this cdi* 
tion ; for which he makes a very 
proper apology. For two omifiiooe, 
however, his apo'ojry is not fo fatit- 
faAory ; the former deprives us of a 
fenfible p^esfute, the other rcnde.s this 
editicn incomplete. Though theie 
can, perhaps, he no certain reliance

Mr. Stcevcns thinks it abfurd to ** per-

1^8 Chcrtfca ifW/jr— Catfar's P-affagt ruer tbi Thames. [Mar. 



Many years ago I vifited thit place 
for the purpofe we are upon. There 
Wat reafon to judge that his nocturnal 
camp was in the prefent town, and 
t^'here Brif^ad. Watkins's houfe Hands. 
This houfe it in his camp ; the ditch 
of the camp having been converted io« 
to canals in hit garden, the dimenfioos 
.properly correfponding, which gave 
me a notion of it, being about 300 
fiet OB a (ide. 

Authors generally miftake in fancy- 
ing that the great and operofe camp on 
JSt. George's hitl, hard by, was Cae- 
far's; that was a ftarionary camp; by 
%vhom made I haye no concern at this 
timt to enquire. But, far otherwife 
was the Roman method on expeditions 
mod marches. It is true, ihey made a 
CAinp the very night ; fuch was theic 
difcipline ; and with renfon. But this 
camp was of Very fmall dimenfion, 2 
or 300 feet onfy on a fide. It was 
chiefly for ftate and regtilHrity. It 
ynt 9l fr^tffrium, the head quarters of 
the general ai^d a few chi«f oflficers ; 
snd perhaps the fpoii was there lodged. 
The Roman army lay around thi» p^4t- 
iwrium ; they dtd not truft their fafety 
to a few diowfy fentinels, but a thiid 
part of their army lay under arrrs ; 
and they always encamped upcn plains, 
and open heatht, free fiom woods, to 
prevent furprize. 

I have met with many of Cselar's 
nocturnal camps: fome were engraven 
30 years ago, and unpiib!i(hed lor the 
leafons abovemeniioncd. 

It would have been an injudicious 
raflineft in Caffar to have puthed his 
pafTage over the Thanies at Coway 
ilakcs, fo paltifadoed above and below 
water, with relolute troops on the 
other fide ; difad vantages' tiM> great for 
Csfar's prudence. But the matter, 
n\ofl abfolniely necciTaiy, mud be ac- 
complifhed. 

Therefore Caefar refo^ves to attempt 
it fomewhat higher up the river. For 
this purpofe he leaves a part of his ar» 
my at the camp of Walton, ftietched 
out in proper front, to make a (how of 
his liay there \ jhe refl he leads over 
the river Wye, and finds a very con- 
venient place for his purpofe in the 
meadow a little below where Chcrtfey 
bridge now (lands. 

1 viewed the place with gteat atten- 
tion, and maturely confidered all cir- 
cumHances, and durfl pronounce with 
affurancr, that it was at this very place, 
of which the great hero ibui writes : 



^ He ordered the horfe to enter the 
water, and the legionary rroops to fol- 
low them cloftly. The foldiert went 
with fo much force and celerity, tho' 
they were only head above water, that 
the enemy could not withftand the 
power of the legions and of the caval- 
ry, but left the bank, and betook 
themfelves to flight/' 

Now let US confider the matter ftep 
by flep. We cannot doubt of hit camp 
being at Waltnn, over again ft the ene- 
my } the name of the town proves it, 
at com in e from vmUum . it is a common 
naine of towns where camps are 
found. There mnft be much wood 
about the river Wye then, as now, 
which would favour his private march. 
The river comes from Guilford, has 
beeir made navimabie not many years 
ago, and that by means of locks and 
(luices, which r^ife the water fuffici- 
entiy for the purpofe. But in its na* 
tural date it was eafity fordable any 
where, nor difficult even now. 

Farther, there is another little brook 
which runs into the Wye about Wey- 
brid^e, but not tire ieaft impediment 
to the march of an army. Defcending 
fome h>gh grour)d at a place calted 
Oburn, thev came to a very large dry 
meadow, of which, no doubt, they 
had good inte ligcof^e before. This is 
jufi below Cher fey bridge. On the 
oppofite open ibore is another fuch 
very larfe dry meadow, both of gra^e^ 
The bed of the river is graVel. Both 
the. (hores plain, flat, and ie?el with 
the water's edge. 

Ail thele circumflances are ex- 
tremely favourable. But, farther, this 
very place is a^ually fordabic in dry 
fommers at this day. And, to crown 
all, there is a fine flexure of the river, 
which muft afford the mofi defirab'e 
afliflancc to the Romans, enlarging 
their fri'nt, contracting that of the 
Britons, and giving the former an op- 
portunity of making an attack to great 
advantage on the flat edge of the wa- 
ter ; many oppofing a fc^, and fur* 
rounding them on two fides as we I as 
froiit. In a word, we may compare it 
to the operation of a pair of (hears. 

Though the Britons, without con- 
troverfy, awaited Czfar't motions at 
Shieppcrton, yet we have not the leaft 
room to think they did jiot watch him 
higher up the river, but a mtic off, 
^nd oppofe him with part of their 
forces. But Caefar's good fortune and 
Romau Talour overcame all difficulties,

ers in his doubts, concerning the 
condud of the French Emigrant Cler* 
gy, with fach an tppearance of can* 
dour and iiberalitv, that they are the 
more likely to make an impreffion on 
the publick. It cannr<t be denied that 
the admiflion of fo many French Ro- 
man Catholicks into this kingdom is 
one of the many ev4ls of the French 
revolution; but, let it be remembered, 
that this admitiioo was not alto^erher 
matter of choice, but, in fome degree, 
of oecefljtv. They w<Te thrown upon 
our coafi, ^i it were, by the hand of 
Gr>J, to itfcuc them from the cruel* 
pcrfecuti<»n of ihtir mcrcilcfii country - 
men : the manner in \vh*ch thty were 
received, andin which they have bcj^n 
ever fioce treated, is, I apprehend, the 
chara^rriOic feature, the peculiar 
glory, of our country i nimely, that, 
notwiihftandmg the difference «n our 
Religon, and the long tivallliip be*

The vwry circumftance that they are 
FiCnchii.cn, and that they art Papiflt, 
heijfhtens the ntent of this n)tioQal

HAVING feen the following 1 ncs 
quoted and imitated in '• The 
Times" for Msrch 9, I muft beg the 
favour of you to allow me half a co- 
lumn in your Magazine, for re^ifying 
a mifreprekntation leiative to the 
author: 

« Cediie, libicincs Itali, vrs cediie, Galli ; 

Dico iterum v.)bip, ciditr, tihicines; 
Ccditf, libicines, vohiMcrdico; qiiaterque 

Jam \'obiS dico, cediir, tibicines.*' 

Thefe lines are afcribcd to Alex. 
Hieofius, which, I fuppofe, is a typo- 
graphical miftake for Alex. Heirfi^s. 
However, no fuch man, I believe, as 
Alexander Heinftus ever exided. The 
veifes were originally written by the 
late ingenious Bunnell Thornton, and 
prefixed as a iTiotco to his very hu- 
iT.ourous Ode on St. Cecilia's Day. 
The name of Pleinfius was fubjoioed, 
as a mere burlefque authority, that 
the critick mipht not imagine the pott 
had written his own motto. Your

Mr. UltBA1^» Sunburj, M^rcb i8. 

THOUGH you are in general ex- 
tremely corred in yourflattmentSy 
iret 1 obferved, in p. 137, that you 
committed a fma|l error, which f wiih 
you would corre£k, and alfo infert the 
following hints which the fubj;6t has 
fuggefted, and may not prove unac- 
•eptable to iooie of your readers. You 
were taking notice of a pamphlet on 
'* the diflempLr in timber railed the 
d^^y'Tot^ and remarked that the writer, 
'* from dear-bought experience, had 
found that hit houfe at Sunbury it 
fubjc£t to damp in rainy feafons ;'* 
adding that, *' as to the caufe and pre<^ 
ven:ion of it, he leaves us where he 
found us." Now, Sir, if yoo will re- 
cur to the pamphlet, you wilt fee that 
the gentleman's houfe is iUted to be 
on Sunbury CommoH, and, .1 have rea- 
fon to think, is (ituatcd in a neigh- 
bouring parifb, not lefs tb^n half a 
mile diftaht from any houfe in the pa- 
rilh of Sunbury. 1 never underftood 
that the houfes here were particularly 
liable to the dry-rot : on the contrary, 
Sunbury is generally, an4 defervedlyi 
allowed to be one of the mod dry and 
falubrious,. a? well as one of the moll 
beautiful, villages in tHe kingdom i 
and what 1 am going to mention to 
you ctpnoc be adduced as a proof to 
the contrary. Some years ago a very 
Beat vellry-room was built ; but, ow« 
ing (as 1 (uppofe) to damp, and the 
want of a proper circulation of air, in 
five years the Boor was in many places 
quite rotten j in the fpace of a week a 
Xungus would grow as thick as an inch* 
It was, therefore, neceflaty that fome 
Heps ihould be taken to repair the ha« 
vock which the dry-rot hnd comniit- 
ted. It was highly recommended by 
the vicar tp take up the door entirely, 
and to pull down and remuve all that 
was in the lead damaged and affefled ; 
then to clear away all the damp rub- 
biih underneath (he juil^s, fo that the 
lead particle of th^ Iry-rot, which is

like them, (houM not remaio. All 
this was done. Pains were alio takea* 
to dry the room by lifthtine Bres ami 
opening the window. ' When the 
frround underneath W is quite dry, the 
joiHs* &c. were thoroughly cleinfedy 
WMfhed, and rubbed, with hot lime 
and ^ater. The floor was raifed about 
th'ee inches; two holes,, of about three 
inches diameter, were perforated thro* 
the wall under the joiils, and two
