To shall frequently recur amidst the Bustle of the present times to the More striking characters and objects of the past Ige -go6c Quot Burke died in his Osth year Irilli the calmness that belonged to a life in which he had never done intentional evil to a he being and had done All the Good that the finest qualities of head and heart could do to his country. His decline had been gradual and he was fully aware that his Hoir Basalt and. He had desired a paper if Addison s to be read to him talked for iome time on the perilous aspect of Public affairs and there gave directions for his himself suddenly grow feeble he expressed a wish to he carried Lis bed and As the attendants were keying him to it Sank Down in their is and expired without a groan. Pill died in his 47lh veal to first lord of the Treasury and Chancellor of the exchequer. An illness which had con fined him not a some period four years lie fore had left him in a slate of comparative debility. The infinite labor of office on his return to Power still More enfeebled a Ime not naturally Strong am the total Erih Row of the austrian armies at Ulm id an Sterlitz threatening the disruption of those alliances which it had been his Pride to form and on whose firmness depended the safety of Europe probably in teased the of disease. His nervous system Wasat length by deranged that fir some weeks to was unable to sleep. His hereditary gout returned and after struggling Wilh water the Chest he expired. By a vote of the House of commons his funeral was to the Public expense and a Mon Ament Vas erected to him in u Westminster Al hey. Fox died in his 58th he had reached the prize for which he had been Labouring through life and was at last. Prime minister. But it came Only to escape from his hand. The fatigues of office were too incessant or a Frame unused to labor. He appears to have had some presentiment of his speedy termination of his existence. On hearing of his Gre it rival a ath Quot Pill Quot said he Quot has gone in Janet amp by perhaps i May go in it happened by a curious coincidence that his disorder a dropsy exhibited its first Dangott in atoms in june. In the Middle of that month be was forced to discontinue his attendant in parliament. About Tho Middle of tha following month to Benarao unable to consult with his co leagues. And after Tho usus Lef amp its of the physicians to relieve Bim it the end of August to fell into a stale of languor which continued until he died. Quot it is remarks hic that the happiest period of Fox s life was that which of Ordi a july 201707. Tat ,jan.93,180�. . 13,ls0f. Lord Ore Neville is first lord Oft lie Naau had the nominal rank i but Poi thou Only sect tary for Pori go Atairi nary principles might to expected t prove tie most painful his retirement from the House of commons. If Man was born for the boldest struggles of popular life it was almost half a Century of the most Brilliant yet the most difficult time of England he Foremost in the popular gaze. His element was the legislature. Yet to 5c< him quietly turn from the House without i remonstrance and perhaps without a sigh begin a new career and with books his Garden and the occasional society Ofa few personal friends forgot ambition. This is an evidence of More that intellectual vigor. Of All the qualities of Public men the rarest is magnanimity. Tic histories of fallen statesmen Are generally Only histories of the miserable decrepitude of human nature vanity wounded to the Core and trying to Salve itself by mean regrets or meaner accusations or Meanes of All by Licking the dust of the Trampler feel and being Content to creep up into in fluence again to reach by tile s Power. Quot on Tho continent an overthrown statesman is generally like an overthrown child he weeps he tears Bis hair claims against every thing round him he is undone when Necker was dismissed by Louis the sixteenth no language could equal his despair. To was still the most popular Man in France and of the most . But the loss of his a Loric cml la the departed vision of bowing clerks the Solitude of his hotel m longer a Lei be of the courtiers whom i professed Lodi spice and whom no Man Hud gone further broke Down the financial Sovereign of France in a discharged menial and his delicious Villa on the shores of the Lake of Geneva surrounded do every Charm of Earth and sky a magnificence of nature that seems Given to in spire grandeur Viilo the human mind was a Dungeon to the cashiered minister. Quot Neckar a is but one instance of it among the More composed manners of English life the loss of Public occupation has Cen often followed by the Hiss of mental dignity and its general result has been either a worthless lassitude or an eager and dishonourable Compromise of principle. But Fox gave up the leadership of opposition a rank fully equal to Tho ministerial in the popular is Limalu and seems to have settled Down to the simplest occupations of a country life and planted his Flowers and pruned his Trees and made his playful verses and carried his Musket As a Privalo in the Chertsey volunteers with As much composure As if to had never tasted the Delight Ful draught of Fame nor soared among the fiery temptations of popular supremacy. Quot on the failure of l Ltd Grey s hopeless motion for Reform in 1797, Fox expressed Bis determine Liim of withdrawing from parliament. This measure May have been in some degree a dereliction of Public duty but it was probably adopted Wilh the idea of forcing the notion to take some decided Slep against the ministry. It failed fir he had miscalculated the Public attachment to pit and he thenceforth Eina ined tranquilly in his Solitude Reali a Iii at st. Ann s kill a Small Demesne Lear l Iii Don the life which Horace has so felicitous by sketched for himself and hich since his Day has been the dream so Many accomplished and weary minds the Leisure the Choice literature and the pleasing oblivion Quot of the cares of life. Here he renewed his knowledge of the Ilas sirs conquered italian and began a finnish. But the peace of Amiens opened France once More and Fox making pretext to himself of collecting a Ihori a is on the history of Tho stuarts but More probably with the common desire to Tho changes wrought by the Revolu-1, went to Paris. He was received with extraordinary Wililie Byall ranks but Tho chief feature of his visit and the Only one that can a Intercourse with the Quot first it is difficult to know whether Napoleon formed a just Concep if fax but it is evident that Fox formed at least in the beginning a curiously untrue one of Napoleon. Immediately on his appearance in the crowd at the Tuil eries the first Consul singled him id held a marked conversation with him. Quot there Are in the world Quot said this disposer of the fates of empires Quot but two nations the one inhabiting the East and the other the West. The English French germans , sic. Amp a. Under the same j code having Tho same manners the be habits and almost the same religion All members of the same family. The men who would wish to Light up again Tho flame of War among them wish for civil he concluded by a compliment to him As Tho Friend of peace. Fox dined with him on the same Day and the conversation turned on Tho trial by jury of which Napoleon could not bring himself to was so gothic cumbrous and might be so inconvenient to Fox with honest John full Isth told him that Quot Tho i convenience was the very thing for which to liked it "but,.startling As those military opinions of Iii Utica Between Man win might be Napoleon succeeded in impressing a vory High idea even of his heart Studif to an it rely upon re Pond Cove Rio Tiona. Be Fox declared that tha fit to i Nao was As Magn Iscel in Bis this ends that to Paw Aneil most decided character and that his views were not directed against great Britain but against the continent that his com Mercial enmity was but a temporary measure and was never intended to be acted upon As a permanent Poliat and that he had a proud Candor which in the Confidence of Success in whatever he resolved Icorn cd to conceal in tit . Quot i never saw Quot said he so Ullic direct Ness in any statesman As in the first makes no secret of his Quot the sparkling sentences and oracular maxims of Napoleon ibo Novelty of the bulletin style had evidently imposed on his Good natured guest and such by Universal acknowledge mini was his brilliancy and Force in conversation that the Only Hope of selecting the artifice was in removing to a distance from the deceiver. But Fox enjoyed an Early and a Complete Opportunity of rectifying Bis opinions on this most Subtle of men. He had scarcely entered the whig Cabinet when to found himself entangled in a mock negotiation saw the be Gotali m dexterously protracted until All things wore Ripe for the ruin of Prussia Anil then saw Napoleon and Talleyrand Fly together from Paris to the ruin leaving his bewilder etl ambassador to be laughed at by Europe. Quot Fox s death closed the Crapof Patriia Mellary Elo Pience. There have beet Able and animated speakers since but there arc few examples of that lofty and original Mastery Oft be understanding and the passions which characterized the Pittl a it of that Lime bile to Fox Pitt Burke lid Sheridan we still go for the study of the Art for the highest principles Offelo illustrated by Tho it ohcs of the Comparativo Powers of those i Kable men the general Impressio ing their was a that Fox stood in the Foremost Ranic As a 1er. His , his manner and his language were parliament tune i elusive and unequalled degree. Pill and Burke must have been eminent in any As sensibly of any age or nation where Thi human intellect was to be kindled and i harried by Power of thought and Ian Guage. A greek or a audience would have listened to either with Admira Ion and owned the influence of their Hon ind grandeur but Fox was made Foi England and peculiarly for the Parlia Uci it of England. Quot innumerable panegyric on his Public i Bililies appeared immediately Afler his death. Cut by far the closest and Roost critical was Given by lord Erskine at a distance of Lime which precluded the immediate influence of partiality and which allowed full Leisure to compare thei Lustri is dead with All of surviving excellence the whole passage itself deserves to be treasured As an Honor equally to Fox and Erskine. This extraordinary person generally Ising to speak had evidently no More premeditated the particular language he should employ nor frequently the illustrations and images by which he should and enforce his subject than he had contemplated the hour he was to die. And his exalted Merit As a debater in parliament did not therefore consist in the length variety or roundness of his periods but in the truth and vigor of his Concep the depth and Exten Lof his information in the retentive Powers of his Ivory which enabled him to keep in instant View not Only All that he had for Mariy and reflected on but every Hinig said at the moment and even at Oiler Imes by the various persons whose argue a cols he was to answer in the faculty of spreading out his matter so clearly to the grasp of his own mind As to Render it impossible to should Ever fail in the utmost clearness and distinctness to others in the exuberant Fertility of his imagine a hich brought Forth his ideas at the moment in every possible shape in which the understanding might it in judgment on them while instead of seeking Afler Ward to enforce them by cold premeditated or by episodes a hich however Beautiful Only distract attention he was accustomed to Repass his object not methodically but in the most foreseen and fascinating review every part of it and binding even his adversaries in a kind of spell of involuntary assent for Tho time. Quot this will be i inn More particularly to apply to his speeches upon sudden occasions when certainly nothing could be More interesting and extraordinary than to witness As i have often done Tho mighty and unprepared efforts of his mind when he Haij to encounter Tho argue its of some profound Reasoner who Ivad deeply considered his sulked and Artan ged it with All possible Art to preserve its parts unbroken. To hear him begin on Uch occasions without method without my kind of , without the smallest pulse Froin the desire of destination or Triumph and animated Only by the honest sense of duty an audience who knew Hin not would have expected Little Success �0� of the Piluga of popularity was Felt Liy for in Tho of the French atlist to take Iii lil temm.

But Fox unlike the Serpent in every thing but his sting in always taking his station in some fixed Invulnerable principles Scon surrounded amp entangle to his adversary Dis jointing every member of his discourse amp strangle a him in the irresistible folds of truth. Quot this intellectual superiority by which my illustrious Friend was so eminently might nevertheless have existed in All its strength without exalted station to held i a Public speaker. The Powers of the Side standing Are not of themselves such ent for Lilis High purpose. Intellect a Lone however , without Strong feelings without even irritable sensibility would be Only like an immense Magazine if Gunpowder if there were no such element As fire in the natural world it is the heart which is the Spring and Fountain of Al hence. A cold blooded Learned Man Vighi for any thing i know compose in closet an eloquent Book but in Public course arising out of sudden occasions to could by no possibility be eloquent. Quot it has been said that he was frequently careless of the language in which he expressed himself but i can neither agree to the Justice nor even comprehend Tho meaning of that criticism. He could not be incorrect from carelessness be Cariso having lived from his youth in the great world and having been Unmil Learly con verdant with the classics of Alln aliens his most unprepared Spca Liing or if critics will have it so his most negligent must have been at least grammatical which it not Only unit Brandy was hut distinguished by its taste More than that could not have belonged to it without the very care which his habits and Liis talents equally rejected. Quot he undoubted attached As Little to the musical intonation of his speeches As to the language in which they were expressed. His emphases were the unstudied effusions of nature the vents of a mind burning intensely with the generous flame of Public spirit and Benevolence beyond All control or management when impassioned ind above the rules to which inferior subjected this sentences often rapidly succeeded and almost mixed themselves with on another As the lain bursts from the Mouth of a Volcano when the Resistless energies of the Terrane an world Are at their from the Columbia a enquirer. Most of our readers have heard of Tho death of the unfortunate major a bad formerly a member of the legislature from Randolph county who was killed by a Ball discharged from a Rifle at Hitchie Creek about a month ago. The Assas Iii was soon discovered to be an Indian of the Oswil Che tribe living among the creeks by Tho name of Tom a perfect outlaw in character even among his own people and the same desperado who had piously killed sir. Mayo and shot at and wounded or. Thompson. We Aro Happy to say that to has paid the penalty of his bloody crimes and fallen by Tho same fell weapon with Thich lio had done Uch dreadful upon his Limo Civit victims. A after the death of Tho lamented Brady constant vigilance was kept up in the Leigh boyhood for Tho apprehension of the murderer. Tom keeping himself mostly ii the Woods on this Side of the River a Par from his tribe eluded their efforts until the 9th of this inst. When he was Dis Vered by another Indian near Culpeper s old Shore about Twenty Miles below this place on the Side of the Challah of Che endeavouring to obtain a Canoe with which to Cross Over to the nation. The Indian told him that to could not Cross there but must go Down to Boykin s ferry about three Miles below. He then encamped in the neighbourhood for the night and the other Indian near during the night the latter got up crossed the River and gave information to a while Man by the name of Sims living in a the nation of Tho murderer being in thei Vicinity and of his intention to Cross at the ferry in the morning. Sims immediately collected a party of about thirty indians and prepared to the ferry and they had not been there More than half an hour when the murderer made his appearance the opposite Side. Havig of blamed the Canoe he crossed Over and was about gathering his plunder Aad provisions which to had with him when Simond his party discovered themselves to him. He evinced no emotion when he saw them but calmly awaited their a movements. Sims advanced and Atli noted to fire Buthis Rifle snapped. The indians then fired simultaneously and the outlaw fell on the spot where he jumped from the by about thirty bullets. After his Atli the indians flir��rhispr9visions, see.
