In this once Beautiful but now desolate and oppressive Retreat the give statesman was accustomed to walk and rejoice in his temporary escape from the hot atmosphere of politics and the vexations of Public life taking doubtless occasionally a complacent Survey of his Well cultivated Field through openings in the surrounding Trees. Here was Pio Bubly the of Many of those grand thoughts and imperishable truths that make his work the property not of one age and country Only but of All Ages and All count lies. Here he held Friendly Intercourse with those whom he honoured w Ith his Confidence and Here he poured Forth his soul in passionate and exhausting grief Lor the loss of his Only Here ton in happier Days before the terrible convulsions of Europe had troubled his spirit and private sorrows Hud almost bowed it to the dust would assemble the celebrated the Day its choicest w its and greatest spirits.

Here too lord i Leroug Ham Olen discussed the a a crests of tho1 state und could complacently us Ivy the happiness Mound him. No visitor let burkes abode without carrying with him delightful recollections of the classic great principles of Tho science and he embraced every Opportunity of illustrating and enforcing them. It is recorded of Adam Smith that on his return to Scotland Roni a visit to London to declared that Burke of All the Public men with whom he conversed was the Only one who could Oom Prehod or be induced to take the slightest interest in his theories. We cannot resist the incline lion to transcribe in an illustration of this Long since ceased to feel Tho restraining Vns Nark an admirable passage from the us a fun a 0 in "hicl1 Hoh Quot a w,lk"1 il1 philosophic statesman and listened to his instructive discourse. Yeoman. This Domain Ziurko became of in the year 17uh. In a letter to an 1 Early Friend lie writes a i have just made Crim Blic life of Burke we Cali i pus ii with All 1 would collect of inv own a not omit to glance at his Rural occupy while contemplating the country Ritli it apr to which we have before referred in which he proves the interests of the i amp a incr and the Lal it Ore to to identical a in the Case of the Farmer and the la Borer their interests Are always the same and it in absolutely impossible that their free contract can to onerous to either party. It is the interest of the Farmer that his work should to done with effect and celerity and that cannot be tiles the labourer is Well fed and otherwise found with such necessaries of animal life according to his Habitude As May keep the body in full Force and the mind Gay and cheerful. For of Ull the instruments of his Trade the labor of Man what the Aucul it writers have called the Hul Rumen turn Cocote is that one on which he in most to rely for the repayment of his capital. The other two Emit Cote in this ancient classification a that is the working Stock of cattle and the tru a met turn Mutum such As carts ploughs Spades and so Forth though not at Ull inconsiderable themselves Are very much inferior in Utility or in expense or without a Given pro portion of the first arc nothing at All. For in All things whatever the mind is the most valuable and most kit Rte it and in this scale the w Hole of agriculture is inn natural and Jnet order the beast is is an informing principle to the plough and cart the labourer is us reason to the beast and Tho Farmer is As a thinking and presiding principle to the Lali Orer. An attempt to Teuk this Chain of subordination in any part is equally absurd but the Law Rudity is most mis Chevious in practical operation where it is Tho most easy that is the most subject to or. Erroneous judgment. A a a it is plainly More the Farmers interest that his men should thrive that that his horses should be Well fed sleek Plinny uld i for 11�<\ or Tomii but Liia Wagon and ploughs should he Strong and in Good repair and lit for service. On the other hand if the Farmer Cone s to profit of the labourer and that the capital is not continually manured and Frue titled in is impossible that he should continue that abundant Nutriment and cloth j even thing the cellar froze solid. 1 i la t in my o by .

Lie appeared neither to wish nor dread but patiently and placidly to w Ait tic appointed hour of his he by his will Ull a it unious honors assigning a a reason that he had had in his lifetime too much of noise and Fox to his Honor proposed u Public fun eral which would have been unanimously voted by the House of commons but for the injunction of the departed states Man. He had requested to be buried in the Church of beacons Duld close to the a Odies of his son and brother. On a Calm summer afternoon when the slanting rays of Tho declining Sun were gilding the Little spire of beacons held Church and pouring a mild radiance Over the surrounding country a walking procession moved slowly through Tho Village. The remains of the great statesman had let Cen taken the evening before from his seat to Tho town for Tho convenience of the attendants. Seventy members of the Benefit society which he patronized Clad in mourning led the Way. The pall was borne by some of the illustrious men of the Day in Tho list of whom however we discovered with pain Tho omission of the Nat no of Fox. Ilu Taren from far and wide crowded the churchyard and its approaches and the grief of the poor was audibly expressed and amidst Tho pro Lound sorrow of All classes the body of the greatest Man of that or perhaps of any age we consigned to Tho Tomb. Burke Lind further expressed in his will n desire Flint no Public Monument should be erected to his Montuory but that Only a Plain Tablet and inscription should Mark Tho place of his interment.

Right to the reputation which had been gained in their service and the it is therefore the first fundamental interest of the Lala Orer that the Farmei should have a full incoming prot of his labor. The proposition is self evident. Lame which they have awarded shall be perpetuated in a manner most in Accord mice with their feel Tigs and their in popular Assembly the interest of the state and the object of government itself too often appear to be cast aside or forgotten. History teems with examples of Tho selfishness of party spirit and its unprincipled combinations and we have too often seen in our Day that the Vita of action m constantly working in even the Best of constitutions and threatening it either with chronic disease or to bring it to premature decay. We see no remedy but in the greater diffusion of political know Edc in interesting larger portions of the oui Muity in the concern a of the state hid perhaps in extending the franchise and thus enlarging the tribunal to which Public men Are responsible for their conduct and their votes. A study of the character of Burke would to one of the Best correctives of the infirmities and Short comings of Public men. His political writings abound in Wisdom clothed in All the splendor of eloquence they Are stamped with True greatness of soul and the highest minds will forever draw from them their noblest thoughts their purest principles their profoundest convictions. Thus Genius it it too Ottun fails in its conflict with the present asserts its Dominion Over the future. Nor is there anything in the private life of Burke Asiu those of some of his illustrious contemporaries to qualify the sentiment with which we must regard his Homo was Tho abode of Ever a virtue and while pacing with thoughtful Steps the paths so familiar to him at Beaconsfield we Tecl that to More political greatness apart from moral superiority could exercise such a permanent info Leuco upon tic minds of inn itis the purity of his character combined with his intellect and knowledge that enc Imp is our und excites our admiration nud if any senator w to has draw n lessons of conduct from the pages of Burke or meditated in his career Csc Ping from the stilling atmosphere of and the Diu of Debute should seek for a few hours in the shades of Beaconsfield and hold in spirit Brief communion with the mighty dead he will return with his sympathies enlarged his motives purified and his nerves braced for the discharge of every duty which his country Tuny require of him.

No knowledge of his Faino could have increased their attachment to his person and his importance in their estimation was sufficiently symbolized in the Carriage and four horses by which to sometimes took his journeys to the Metropolis. Early in the year 1797, Burke removed from Beaconsfield to Bath for thu Benefit of the Waters but thu hand of death was then upon him Aud lie returned to his seat in May Only to die. The toils and contentious of Public life had Long shattered his health Aud his spirits never removed the Shock which they sustained by the death of Bis son.

I urn a tripped of Tuy Honor i am Tom up by the roots Aud lie pit lie Earth Upatoi ill old was to be do Alful abode 9� Westminster but the Abbey a a the proper place for his earthly colonization. If Public honors have Uva too often awarded Aud statues erected by partial friends or by in in discriminating legislature to inferior men giving a false attestation of their characteristics if ephemeral politic inns the faint lights of their Day now extinguished forever viewed through a de planted with Corn Aud which promised an abundant yield. One morning after we had dispatched our Humble meal and i Hud just prepared to venture Forth upon my regular Rou Tine of labor my attention w of arrested by the inkling of n cow Bell in Tho but tic ear of the Back woodsman a cup tic medium have had their proportions exaggerated and belied if men Conict it a education ver acute Especial marked by no originality of Genius or by fro n Tho fact that i Fety Oft cd a grandeur or relation of mind Imre been depend upon the Nice cultivation of that exalted into National benefactors and endowed with n factitious immortality a w hat honors can a Felt sufficient to Mark nud perpetuate our admiration of that great luminary that oven yet warm the political atmosphere with the rays of his departed glory and w Hose Light will never become totally extinct but with that of civilization Aud Freedom. Thu peculiarity of burkes Genius has been too Ofren discussed to need any elucidation and it is not our intention to enter Here upon a subject so thoroughly exhausted. Notwithstanding the vast superiority of his knowledge his laborious life and eminent Public services he never attained a is Well known a seat in the Cabinet and when his party acquired for a Short time Posso Nuon of Power he a placed in a subordinate office in the Gor Crumb it. The unbending rectitude of his mind and thu loftiness of his character us fitted him for co operating cordially with Ordinary men. He was doubt la regarded Oso impracticable a a term of Wjk Culiar significance. A too Foud of the right to pursue the exp Dieul a he would have disdained the compromises to which Public men Are often obliged to resort to to maintain themselves in Power Aud Cavuto carry on the on Linary operations of government. It is the nature of representative institutions to lower in a considerable degree the Standard of political morality Aud in the Pouf dict of parties Aud the struggles for pc Etc Inease in a sense. I was not so easily that said i in reply to the remark of my wife was not the tinkle of a Bell upon Tho neck of a cow. It is a Decoy from some Indian who desires to draw me into ambush. Believing this to to Tho Caso i took Dow n my old Musket i bad no Rifle and seeing that it was pro it cry loaded i stole cautiously around the Field toward the Point from which the sound seemed to proceed. As i had suspected there in a Cluster of Bushes crouched an Indian waiting for to to appear in answer to his Mccoy Bell that he might Send the fatal Bullet to my heart. I approached without discovering myself to him until within shooting distance then raised my piece and fired. Tic Bullet sped True to its Mark Aud the i Diau fell dead. Not knowing but he might be accompanied by others i returned with ails it ced to the Cabin and having firmly a barricaded the door i watched All Day from thu kit it holes in anticipation of a attack Lorn the companions of the Indian 1 had killed. To add to Tho danger and seeming Lionel Sanchas of my situation i discovered 1 had but one charge of powder left. I could not make but one shot nod then if attacked by nut in i should be entirely in their Power. Determined to do the Best with want i and i poured out the inst charge of powder and put it into my Musket and then awaited for the Apps och of night it lag confident of an attack. Night came at last. A Beautiful Moonlight night it wan too Aud tills favored me greatly As i would thereby be Able to observe the movements of the enemy As they approached my Cabin. It was some two hours after Nightfall and As yet 1 had neither heard or seen a sign of the indians when suddenly i was started by the baying of my dog at the stable. I knew that Tho indians Weru coming. The stable stood a Little to the West of the Cabin and Between the two was a Patch of cleared ground upon which the Light of the full Moon fell unobstructed. Judging from the noise at thu stable that they would Advance from that direction i posted Ray self at the port Hole of that Side of the Cabin. I had previously placed my wife on the Cross kit it in the Chimney so that in Case our enemies effected an Entrance into the Cabin she might climb out through the Low Chi Huuey and effect her escape. For myself i entertained no Hope but determined not to be taken alive i resolved to sell my life dearly. With breathless anxiety i watched at the port Bolc. At length i saw them emerge from the Shadow of the stable and Udvance across the vacant ground towards my Cabin. One a two a three a great heaven six Stalwart indians armed to the Teeth and urged on by thu Hope of revenge and i alone to Opku of them with but one charge of powder. My Caso was desperate indeed. With Quick yet Stealthy step in close single file they approached and Wero already within a few Yard of Tho House when a slight Chango in thu movement of thu Forward Indian changed thu it position of the entire sex so that a it ortion of the left Sido of each was left uncovered. They were in a Range one aim would cover All. Quick As thou to i aimed and fired. As the smoke cleared away i could hardly credit what my my senses showed Moas Tho result of my shot. Die fifteen slugs with which i had loaded my Musket had done their work Well five of the six Indian Lay Ducaj upon the ground and the sixth had disappeared. Although no enemy was in sight i did not venture Forth till morning. There Lay the bodies of five Audi aug undisturbed together with the Rifle of the other. Securing the Antis Ami ammunition of the fallen indians i followed up the Trail of the Mimi one until it reached Tho River beyond which Point i could discover no Trace whatever. From the amount of blood which marked the Trail together with the Utuma Tak Able a Videlee that he had picked his Way with difficulty 1 wus led to Bali exc that lie was mortally would cd Aud in order to prevent his Baxly from Fulling into Tho hand of his White foe he had group d his Way to the River and had thrown himself into the current which had borne him Wuy. The indians had killed Tuy cow and that you May be assured was to trifling loss yet in my gratitude for my coca to from the Merei levs Savages i would have been utterly willing to have made greater sacrifices. I was Well provided by Means of Ariun and ammunition Taku from the six indians in Case of a second attack but this fortunately proved to bouy last adventure with the Savage. Not one of the bad had escaped to Tell Tho Talo and incite his Brethren Toa Vongoethe death of their other comrades.
