of England in right of his wife, Mary Stuart, Elizabeth sent an army to Scotland which drove the French out of the kingdom. She supported the French Huguenots with money and troops in their struggle with the Roman Catholics in 1562. In 1563 the Parliament, in an address to the Queen, entreated her to choose a husband, so as to secure a Protestant succession to the crown. She returned an evasive answer. She gave encouragement to several suitors, after she rejected Philip, among them Archduke Charles of Austria, the Duke of Anjou, and Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. The latter remained her favorite until his death in 1588. During the greater part of Elizabeth's reign, Cecil, Lord Burleigh, was her prime minister. For more than twenty years from 1564 England was at peace with foreign nations, and enjoyed great prosperity. Because of the opposite interests in religion, and possibly because of matrimonial affairs, Elizabeth and Philip of Spain were mutually hostile, and in 1588 t

igate had been cut down to a corvette of twenty-eight guns in 1813, and was the first that figured after the opening of 1814. She started on a cruise from Washington in January, and on the night of the 18th passed the British blockading squadron in Lynn Haven Bay, put to sea, and ran to the northeast to cross the track of the West India merchantmen. She made a few prizes, and on March 25 she captured the Indiaman Woodbridge. While taking possession of her the commander of the Adams (Capt. Charles .Morris) observed twenty-five merchant vessels, with two ships-of-war, bearing down upon her with a fair wind. Morris abandoned his prize, and gave the Adams wings for flight from danger. In April she entered the harbor of Savannah for supplies, and on May 5 sailed for the Manila Reef to watch for the Jamaica convoy, but the fleet passed her in the night. She gave chase in the morning, but was kept at bay by two vessels of war. She crossed the Atlantic, and on July 3 was off the Irish

hday, Jan. 23, 1831, in verse:— When Anson's natal day returns, And Holkham's halls resound with joy, &c. Roscoe's Life of William Roscoe, Vol. II. pp. 265-268. Sumner first made the acquaintance of Lady Anson in London, who introduced him, at an interview specially arranged, to her father. She also interested herself to have him see the Bridgewater and Grosvenor collections of pictures. Her note of Oct. 20, 1838, welcomed him to Holkham. You would be amused to see Lord Spencer, John Charles, third Earl of Spencer, 1782-1845. As Lord Althorp, he served in the House of Commons from 1804 to 1834, and was Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1830 to 1834. His integrity and good sense won him a leading position in Parliament. Miss Martineau, referring to his retirement, says: Lord Althorp, now become Lord Spencer, was thus soon at liberty to enter upon the privacy he sighed for. He never returned to office. Perhaps no man ever left the House of Commons and an official seat, about

ruck Finn, a scuffle ensued, and he aimed a pistol at Finn, but did not fire it, because his arm was struck down. There was some further testimony, but nothing bearing especially upon either of the parties accused. Mr. Finn declared his purpose of getting out a warrant against Wayne for shooting at him, which he could prove. The Mayor said that he could go before the Grand Jury and present Mr. Wayne, if he thought proper; but in the meantime he would require security in the sum of $150 for his good behavior and for his appearance at Court. Mr. Curry was discharged. John Boltz and John Fink appeared to answer for the delinquencies of their sons in throwing rocks in the streets; but they satisfied the Mayor that they had whipped their boys soundly, and escaped without a fine. The following fines were imposed for keeping bar-rooms open after ten o'clock at night: John Charles, $5; Cropper & Herrin, $5; Jas. Burns, $10. Several other trivial cases were disposed of.
