I cannot describe to you the heartiness of is here on a visit to her sister married in Newcastle; Dr. Lardner seems a coxcomb and pertinaciouf several dates, July 23 and 27, found me at Newcastle. Glad was I, even in that feast of wise menin a century ago people could have gone from Newcastle to London. It was, therefore, with great saon would not merely travel from Liverpool to Newcastle, and from Newcastle to Birmingham, but have Philadelphia, and from Philadelphia back to Newcastle? Then, indeed, they would have an alliance is learned friends (loud applause)?] From Newcastle I went in the coach of the Bishop of Durham ater renewed the invitation. the Recorder of Newcastle (he is no relative of Mr. Wilkinson, Judge S on the Tyne, and is about twelve miles from Newcastle.

two or three whose opinions are worth having—believe that leading men at the South have already an understanding with Louis Napoleon, that, for certain advantages in trade, he should enter into an alliance, offensive and defensive, with them. I do not believe in this. But it may come with time. . . . Anna wrote to Lady Lyell so much about the Prince's visit, that I can add nothing, except my conviction that it has done good to the relations of the two countries. . . . . . The Duke of Newcastle and Dr, Acland were the only two persons of whom I saw a little, to any real purpose, during their two or three days visit here. The Doctor is a most interesting and attractive person. There can be no doubt about that. The Duke talked well and wisely. . . . . Commend us to Sir Edmund and Lady Head when you see them. We had a charming visit from them when they embarked, and most pleasant letters since their arrival. Yours faithfully, Geo. Ticknor. In a letter to Sir Edmund Head M
reception among them as their head. This vague and indefinite offer of place, unsanctioned by the king, was but a concession from the aristocratic portion of the Whigs to a necessity of seeking support. Pitt remembered the former treachery of Newcastle, and being resolved never to accept office through him or his connections, he treated their invitation as an unmeaning compliment; declaring that he would support those and those only who acted on true revolution principles. The care of his heseason for credulity; confidence is a plant of slow growth in an aged bosom. By comparing events with each other, reasoning from effects to causes, methinks I discover the traces of overruling influences. This he said referring to the Duke of Newcastle. Lord Charlemont to Henry Flood, Jan. 28 (by misprint in the printed copy Jan. 8) 1766. It is a long time, he continued, since I have attended in parliament. When the resolution was taken in the house to tax America, I was ill in bed. I
discourtesy of these journals, for all the royal party were delighted with the visit, except the footmen and other servants, who, like their brethren of the London press, considered this "a blasted country." The London Times is good enough to congratulate us on the opportunity we have enjoyed of seeing the "first gentleman of England," and certainly he is the first gentleman of that kingdom who ever made a flying trip through the United States. With the exception of H. R. H., the Duke of Newcastle, Earl of St. Germane, General Bruce, and other noble gentlemen of the suite, most of the transient visitors from England to America have been snobs, of the first water, vulgar pretenders, who have given our countrymen a very unfavorable and unjust impression of English character. We are happy that the Prince of Wales and the high-bred gentlemen in his train have enabled us to correct this impression, and we are sure they have left the kindest feelings towards themselves, personally, throu
eir own creatures for offices, whilst virtuous and respectable citizens abandon the polls in disgust. The consequence is that, officially as well as socially, New York is made to present an aspect to outsiders which is at once ridiculous and repulsive, but as false to her real character as it is possible to conceive. Between the upper and lower strata of New York society, may be found half a million of as industrious, intelligent and orderly a population as the sun shines on. The Duke of Newcastle, who, as well as all the royal party, must have been thoroughly nauseated with the intense vulgarity of the foolish aristocracy at the ball, were enthusiastic in their admiration of the New York People, who lined the vast thoroughfares of that city on the arrival of the Prince, the Duke declaring that he had never seen a grander spectacle.--We can well believe it. Soldiers and shows they had seen many times in far greater numbers than America could exhibit, but we doubt whether that or any
Sudden death. --At Newcastle, Me., Barnabas Barker, of that town, was choked to death on Saturday last while eating his dinner. The other members of the family had partaken of their meal and left the room, and were not aware of the accident until finding the body at the door with food in the mouth and upon the clothing. He was dead when found.
