pace; and I shall soon be even at that longest goal. I have now deserted London for a short excursion to several places in the country which I have not yet seen. I have just left Warwick, where I passed two days with Mr. Collins, William Collins, a resident of Warwick. the M. P. for the borough. Of course, I visited Kenilworth and Warwick Castles. The first, you know, is a ruin; but it is very extensive, being the largest ruin I have yet seen,—larger than Glastonbury Abbey, where old Dunstan made the Devil cry out, by an unceremonious pinch of the nose. Warwick is beautiful in its position, its towers, its court-yard, and its paintings. After the very ample experience I have had of English country-places, it did not strike me so much as it has some Americans. It is not so large as Wentworth, nor so comfortable and magnificent—the two combined—as Holkham, nor so splendid as Chatsworth; and it has nothing which will compare with the feudal entrance and hall of Raby Castle, nor<

In this succinct, didactic narrative, not half justice could be done to these martys to civil liberty. Their lives and deaths were
Everybody has been abusing him for thousands of years. Poor Burns, indeed, took his part, and insisted upon it that he was a very good fellow after all. But generally he is not admitted into good society — at least not openly. He is not presentable at the President's levee, though there are indications that he gets in occasionally by the back way. How in the world, then, he should get among the clergy is a marvel. Why he should seek such society is a still greater.-- One would think St. Dunstan, when he took him by the nose with a pair of red hot tongs, and Luther, when he threw his ink bottle at his head, had given him hints strong enough that his company was not acceptable. But we suppose the old gentleman has become tired with roaming up and down the earth, which he has been at ever since he and Job came in contact several thousand years ago.-- Honest Trinculo tells us that "misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows."
