An explanation of this rather my Mari Clung i in 11 irk Post on has been supplied by the correspondence published try mail . Burke was at the time of the Purchase private Secretary to the Marquis of Rockingham and they were on terms of the strictest Friendship. The Manipis Early acquired a knowledge of Trio great qualities of Hurck s mind and character. Tin slate papers w hich bark wrote for the use of the w Hig party marked him out As it guiding and governing spirit. Lord Rockingham Felt himself under the deepest obligations to his Able i and Brilliant Secretary and he dete Nuin is i to requite him in a Way that would secure at once his private and of Litreal in dependence and give him a status in of dial life that should lie in some degree to Orti Onate to the dignity of his Char Acter and i great pro Etui notice lie advanced him a considerable Mitiu and took a unit for its repayment. In form it Wila loan in sul Lance a gift and so it was doubt let understood by both. It was a transaction which Only great and Noble minds Cou d participate in Aud Coli or Lic Iid. On the death of the Man i is the Bond was found cancelled among i ask is an aet which was Piol ably Pello Uick by the generous peer before the Ink had dried of the Signa 1 Turc. Near the spot where Lurk � mansion Urooj i us extensive Wool or give with walks Cut through it in various direction. It formed a part of the pleasure grounds mud was evidently Laid out with an eve to Beauty and effect. It w now a tangled wilderness cloaked with Nettles i and overran w Ith Briars with which the Rose still struggles in wild unregulated growth Ami where fragrant creeper climb the tallest Trees and year note year put Forth and shed their Flowers in unheeded profusion. Laurels that have Long Mono erased to feel the restraining hand of Man throw their sturdy Blanehe across Damp in trodden paths and the i dense and sombre foliage scarcely Jur mits a Sunbeam to penetrate the gloomy Wood. In this once Beautiful but now desolate and Opp Miv Retreat the govt statesman was Mccu Tom cd to walk and rejoice in his temporary Csc Apo from the1 hot of politic and the vexations of Public life taking doubtless occasionally a complacent Survey of his Well cultivated Lien through openings in the surrounding Trees. Here was probably i the of Many of those grand thoughts and imperishable truths that make his works the property not of one i age and country Only but of nil Ages and All count lie. Here to held Friendly Intercourse with those whom he honoured i with Lii. Confidence and in re lie poured Forth list jul in passionate Ami Celia int ing i if for the loss of his Only son.

Here u 3if Joi Liua would discuss with his admiring Host the highest or Ilicin it of his Art gaining rather than importing instruction in his own Peculiar profession. Here Johnson with i uncouth form and awkward gait indifferent to the Beauty 1 around him would utter his. Sententious periods or make the Grove Echo with i sonorous laugh. Here too lord i Leroug Ham often discussed the iut Cru a of the state and could complacently Survey the happiness around him. No visitor left Burke abode without carrying with him delightful recollections of the classic Giove in which he had walked with the philosophic statesman and listened to his instructive discourse. While contemplating the country Atli or than the Public life of i uric we Cun 1 not omit to glance at his Rural occupations. We shall see the Man who could int Leneo the policy of the state by i practical Windom subdue the Senate by i irresistible oratory or soar into the High est regions of philosophy stoop to the minutest details of agriculture and con duet with Success nil its Ordinary ohm rations.

Ii hold them after Ward at Uxbridge and they were taken to London to receive the last hand Lurl Ono of Tho earliest political economist. Great principles of Tho science and he embraced Overy Opportunity of illustrating and enforcing them. It in recorded of Adam Smith that on his return to Scotland from a visit to London to declared that Burke of All Tho Public men with whom he conversed waa Tho Only Ono who could Oom Prehod or to Indue take Tho slightest interest in his theories. To cannot resist the inclination to transcribe in an illustration of this quark an admirable passage from the apr to which we have before referred in which hit proves the interests of the a Micro and Tho labourer to to identical in the ease of the Farmer Ami Tho la Borer their interests Are always the same and it in absolutely impossible that their free contracts can be 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 Zulean the labourer is Well fed and otherwise found w Ith 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 All the instruments of his Trade the labor of Man what the Ancl it writers have called the Siul Rumen turn locate i that one on w hich he i most to rely for the repayment of his capital. The other two Mem Vocale in Lii ancient Cla Utica Tuii that is the working Stock of cattle and the Stutru my turn Tun him such a cart ploughs Pades Ami so Forth though not at nil in considerable themselves Are very much Interior in Utility or in expense or with out .1 Given proportion of the first arc nothing at All. For in All thing what Ever the mind is the most valuable and Mot important and in this scale the i whole of agriculture is inn natural and Junt order the beast is As an informing principle to the plough and cart the la Borer i us re Sou to the beast and the Farmer is As a thinking and presiding principle to the labourer. An attempt to break this Chain of subordination in any part is equally absurd but the Almur Dity is most mis Chevious in practical opera Tion where it is Tho most easy that is the most subject to a. Erroneous judg ement. It is plainly More the Farmer s inter est that his men should thrive than that his horse should be Well fed sleek i Lump and tit Tor to a Tomii Eliut let Wagon and ploughs should be Strong and in Good repair and tit for to vice. On the other hand if the Farmer Cha is to profit of the labourer and that the Cap ital is not continually matured and frug tidied it is ii k Syible that he should continue that abundant Nutriment and cloth ing and in aging proper for the Protection of the instruments he employs. It is therefore the twist fundamental in Terest of the la Torer that the farm i should have a full incoming profit of his i labor. The Pio position is self evident. And nothing but the Malignity perverse i lie Giitl ill govt Rod passions of Man kind and particularly the envy they Bocai to each other s Prosperity could prevent their seeing and acknowledging it with to the Wise Aud benign Dis a or of All thing who oblige men whether they will or not in pursuing i their own Selth interests to connect the general Good with their own individual Success. There Are still n few old people living a at daemon shield who remember or. Or Esq Burke a he is traditionally spoken then i poorer neighbor knew him Only a the country gentleman the indulgent landlord the sympathizing Friend tin generous Benefactor. There in we i thing peculiarly grateful to Lurke in fre quent Intercourse with the poor. It enlarged his Knowld a of human Charar Tei and Enah lil him to speak with authority on Many lies tons affecting the inter set of the humbler classes and he never lost Ian Opportunity of probing their minds,01 imitated it Survoy the mansion of Sor Row and pain to take the gauge and j dimension of misery depression and con the simple people of his neigh boyhood appear to have but a faint con caption of the greatness of the Man who so familiarly conversed with them. The often Hoard indeed that he received Garcal people in his House but who or what or. Burke wan beyond the limit of Ilea Cornfield they Little cared to know or to inquire. No knowledge of i Faini could have increased their attachment to his person and pm importance in their intimation was sufficiently symbolized in the Carriage and four Horsey by which he sometimes took his journeys to the Metropole. Early in the year 1707, Durkov removed from Llaca Coruth old to Lith for the Benefit of the Waters but the hand of Catli was then upon him Aud he resumed t his seat in May Only to die. The toil Ai d contentions of Public life had Long battered his health Aud his spirits novel recon us the Shock which they Sunta Inco by the death of his son. The storm he m say in the agony of his grief has gone Over me and i lie like one of tha 1 am torn up by the roots and lie Piu Ylita Earth Eaton Aldu to al to abode 9i cheerfulness affy Rural Caret but an obscure and melancholy Retreat in which a desolate old Man lie wished to hide himself from the world and die. I have been he wrote with touching pathos at Bath these four months to no purpose and am therefore to be removed to my own House at to Morrow to be nearer to a habitation More Perman ent humbly and fearfully hoping that my better part May find a better Man Sion he expired on july 9th. I end said or. Laurence was suited to Ali Sim pie greatness of his mind which he Dis played through life. Lie appeared Nei ther to wish nor dread but patiently and placidly to wait tie appointed hour of his dissolution lie prohibited by i will All kit Humour Honor assigning a n reason that he had had in his lifetime too much of noise and compliment Fox to his Honor proposed a Public fun eral which would have been unanimously voted by the Alouso of common but for the injunction of the departed states Man. He had requested to be buried in the Church of Beaconsfield close to the bodies Othi son and brother. On a Calm summer afternoon when the slanting rays of Tho declining Sun were gilding the Little spire of lie Acon Field Church and pouring a mild radiance Over the surrounding country a walking procession moved slowly through the Vil Lage. The remain of the great statesman had been taken the ovo Ning before from his scat to Tho town for Tho convenience of Tho attendants. Seventy member of the Benefit society which he patronized Dud in mourning led the Way. The pall was borne by some of the Illus Grioua men of the Day in the list of whom however we discovered with pain Tho omission of the name of Fox. Labourers from far and wide crowded the churchyard and its approaches and the grief of the poor we audibly expressed and amidst the pro Lound sorrow of All classes the Jakiv of the greatest Man of that or perhaps of any age was consigned to the Tomb. Burke had further expressed in Hin will a desire that no Public Monument should to erected to Liis memory but that Only a Plain Tablet and inscription should Mark to place of Hin interment. It was characteristic of the nobility of his mind and of Tho unaffected simplicity us Ltd ii Tui. To on it not i wet re my Mit that the nation is bound in pc Efu Ity to defer Tho expressed wishes of any Public Man the question of Public honors treat political characters As they Are Tho guide its and land Marks of Tho state while living become when loud by inheritance emphatically the property of Tho people and they had a 1 right to the reputation which i had been gained in their service and the lame which they have awarded shall be in a manner most in Accord Alico with their feel Tigs and their in 1 Sti Ticu. The mind of a Lurk is Imp Crisha my in hit works but to ask and we shall not ask in vain that our elves and our posterity shall to permit Ted to a Cathie features of the great Ora Tor As wrought in Tho paid Marble and to worship at the visible shrine of such lofty intellects and almost unprecedented sex Cellen Cic. We know not Ali Ether a stat tie is designed for Burke in the Palace of Westminster but the Abbey in the propel place for hid earthly colonization. In i Public honors have u in too often award j of and statues erected by partial Friend i j or by an Indis Cri initiating legislature to Interior men giving a fake attestation of their characteristics if ephemeral politic ians the fun it lights of their Day now extinguished forever viewed through a deceptive medium have had their proper Lions exaggerated and belied if men marked by no originality of Genius 01 grandeur or Elevation of mind have Beer exalted into National Ben Factora and endowed with a factitious immortality � hat honors can be Felt sufficient to Marl and perpetuate our admiration of thai great luminary that even yet warms tin political atmosphere with the rays of Hii departed glory and whose Light will never become totally extinct but with that o civilization Aud Freedom. Trio peculiarity of Burke s Genius a been too Ofren discussed to need any Clu citation and it is not our intention to enter Here us on a subject so thoroughly exhausted. Notwithstanding the vast superiority of his knowledge his laborious life and eminent Public services he Nevei attained As is Well known a seat in the Cabinet and when his party acquired Foi a Short time Pomona Sion of Power he War placed in a subordinate Olyce in the government. The unbending rectitude of Hii mind Aud the loft Iueli us his character untitled him for co operating cordially with Ordinary men. He was doubtless regarded As impracticable term of e Culiar significance. Too Foud of the right to pursue the i i Lii us he would have jilt divined the Compromise to which pub Lic men Are often obliged to resort to to maintain themselves in Power Aud even to earn on the Ordinary operations of government. It is the nature of representative institutions to lower in a consid Erable degree the Standard of political morality Aud in tiie conflict of parties Aud Etc struggles for pre it Vineace in al popular Assembly the interest of the state and the object of Gocr Nicut in self too often appear to be cast aside or forgotten. History teem with of ample of the self Isanc Afton party spirit and it unprincipled combinations and we have too often Oen in our Day that the Viro i action h constantly working in even the Best of constitutions and threatening it either with chronic disease or to bring it to pre mature decay. We see no remedy but in the greater diffusion of political knowl Ede in interesting larger portions of the Community in the concern a of the Tate and perhaps in extending the franchise Hui thu enlarging the tribunal to which Public men Are responsible for their con duct and their vote. A study of the character of Burke would be one of the Best corrective of the infirmities and Short comings of pub Lic men. I political writing abound in Wisdom clothe in All the splendor of eloquence they Are stamped with True greatness of soul and the highest mind will forever draw from them their noblest thoughts their purest principle their proof nude to conviction. Thu Genius in it too often fails in its conflict with the present asserts its Dominion Over the future. Nor is there anything in the private life of Lurke Asiu those of some of his illustrious contemporaries to qualify the Scenti mint with which we must regard him. His Homo was the abode of Ever virtue and while pacing with thoughtful Steps the paths so familiar to him at flacon Ticlad we Feci that to More political greatness apart from moral superiority could exer Cise such a permanent int Cuenco upon the minds of men itis the purity of his Char Acter coir Blued with his intellect and knowledge that enc Hains our it factious and excites our admiration and if any senator who has drawn lesions of conduct from the pages of Duroc or meditated ill his career escaping from the stilling at map Here of West Iuster and the Diu of debate should seek for a few hours in the shades of 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 i country May require of him. From a Law Ort met. A thrilling adventure. We question whether in the history of hair breadth escapes a parallel to the following enu Ca ily to found. The tory a told us la an old and in Neil Friend now residing in the country near Lii City but whom Early Day were Clit near the tragic adventure Here recorded. We give the tory at related to us in the words of the hero. It was about the year 1h0." that i Fet led in Virginia near the fall of Kana Wah. The country at that tune wan but an unbroken wilderness. Hut few nettle menu had been made there by the White and they were of far apart As to Render vain All Hopes of assistance in Case of an attack from hostile indians number of whom still inflated the neigh boyhood. I lived there alone with my wife for several months unmolested and by diet of perseverance being then Young and Hardy lad succeeded in making quite m 1 Large Clearing in the font which i had planted with Corn and which promised an abundant yield. One morning after we had dispatched our Humble meal and i had just prepared to venture Forth upon Iny regular Rou Tine of labor my attention was arrested by the inkling of a cow Bell in the Corn hut tiie ear of the Bac woodsman l e coins by education very acute especially so from Tho fact that his safety often depends upon the Nice cultivation of thai sense. I was not so easily deceived. That said 1, in reply to the remark of my w Ife was not the tinkle of a Bell upon the neck of a cow. It is a Decoy from some Indian who desires to draw me into ambush. Believing this to to Tho ease i took Down my old Musket i bad no Rifle and seeing that it was properly loaded i stole cautiously around the timid toward the Point from which the sound Sci nod 1 to proceed. As i had suspect cd there in u Cluster of Bushes crouched an Indian waiting for me to appear in answer to his Decoy Bell that he might Send Tho fatal Bullet to my heart. I approached with out discovering myself to him until with in shooting distance then raised my piece and tired. Hie Bullet sped True to its Mark and the Indian fell dead. Not knowing but he might to accompanied by others 1 returned with All Speed to the Cabin and having firmly iwo Ricadel Tho door i watched All Day from the Ort Bolt in anticipation of a attack from the companions of the in Dian 1 had killed. To add to Tho danger and seeming Hopel sinew of my situation 1 discovered 1 had Bat one charge of powder left i could not Inako but one shot and then if attacked by in alien i should be entirely in their Power.
