Something New in History. A Mr. Massey, it seems, an Englishman, is publishing in London a history of England.--He has gotten down as low as 1793, the last volume including all the events between 1780 and that year. The Westminster Review, speaking of this last volume, says: "Opening with an account of the military opon of hostilities, treaties with both these countries were shortly after concluded, on the basis of the peace of 1763." If the above is a fair synopsis of Mr. Massey's account of the closing scenes of the American Revolution, his book must be a curiosity. We never heard before that Cornwallis retired into Virginia. After t extract would seem to imply that in making her treaty of peace, America had abandoned France and Spain in a dishonest and disreputable manner. What new lights Mr. Massey may have upon that subject, we do not profess to know. The general understanding upon the subject has always been as follows: After the capture of Cornwal
sually occupied, he was stopped and conducted into a large room, where he found the pages who were to be his keepers waiting to receive him. The equerries, among whom was his faithful and valued servant, Gen. Harcourt, according to the orders they had received, withdrew. The physicians also, who had accompanied the royal patient from Windsor, having consigned him to the charge of the pages, also thought proper to retire, and actually returned to London the same night. The King then impatiently demanded to see his family; and the promise under which he had been induced to leave his Palace at Windsor was in cruel mockery fulfilled. The Princesses were brought before the window; the King, on seeing them, rushed forward to lift the sash, but it was screwed down. A paroxysm was the immediate consequence of this cruel restraint; the Princesses were hastily removed, and the King was dragged from the window, entreating to be allowed to speak to his children.--Massey's History of England.
