Whilst he was lord Chancellor he was in the almost daily habit of communicating articles to a daily paper but Wilh a degree of caution which few men would have imagined. Not a line of his writing came before tie compositors or even the editor. His communications were made by letter to his brother by whom they were read to the editor who wrote As or. Brougham read and in this Way the leading articles appeared without its being possible to prove that they came from lord Brougham s pen. On one occasion when an article against the whig ministry had appeared in the times it was sent to lord Brougham who was sitting at Westminster in ibo court of chancery. The paper was folded in such away that the article might meet the Eye readily and was handed up to the Chancellor. Sir Edward Sugden was pleading. The Chancellor Laid the paper before Hin took his pen and whilst the Public and the bar imagined that he was taking notes of sir Edward s speech with whom from time to time he held a conversation on the Points of his Case the answer was written. Less than a Quarter of an hour sufficed an article of about forty lines full of spirit. Vohen it was done he made some excuse quitting the Bench a few minutes and went into his own room Whon it was Given to the editor to transcribe although lord Brougham could write Well newspapers no Man was to be permitted to possess a proof that the articles came t Coto him. I have heard of other instances of his caution in his relations with the newspaper press but As they were not like those which i have Given within my personal knowledge i shall not repeat them t a Magazine. will have a permanent Charm which is not said with a conscientious desire to arrive at truth and important not trite truth. The subjects which every it Law Rise to require develop Mont Are endless. There Are thousand who Are constantly employed to disguise the truth and mislead the Public mind the Sake of private interests. To disabuse the Public understanding a a work of grand Egerton of it rather the name than tie reality was continued by Louis eighteenth and Charles tenth. There Are very Strong suspicions that it has been restored to much of its activity under Louis Philippe. This however a merely a suspicion although a natural one. It is Odd if As we heard Many years ago the Cabinet of seals used under Louis fourteenth was transferred to the secret Bureau under Napo lean and actually is in Uso at present in the Paris Post office. In great Britain and her dependencies the Post office is said to be unhampered with. Perhaps the sole exception is in Jamaica where by some local Law the postmasters Are under an obligation to detain All letters with three seals. It appears that a Long time ago some Maroon conspiracy was on foot in that Island and the letters connected with it bore three seals. The local legislature on the discovery of the plot passed the act in question. A Aew York evening Star. Pitcairn a Island a the history of this Little Island a treo a Bosomed spot in the Pacific is an me resting episode in the world s great epic. There in poetry too associated with its name j the events connected with its settlement form the subject of lord Byron s Quot some particulars relative to the present state of things in this Island having met our notice in the 1 is number of the Sailor s Magazine the whole Story which in Boyish Days had seized with romantic interest on the fancy now came into mind and in the present dearth of news we know not How better to fill a portion of a column than by re capitulating som of the leading incidents which make up the history. In 1789 the Crew of the British ship Bounty having mutinied in the South Pacific Ocean Captain Bligh with eighteen others who adhered to him were set adrift at sea. The mutineers under an officer named Christian having now Possession of the ship directed their course towards Ota Heile. Here they landed and seizing upon a number of the natives of both sexes they sailed away to an uninhabited Island Pitcairn s where they settled and to put away All thoughts of Ever returning to England Christian prevailed upon his followers to destroy the ship. Tolfe Lawless habits of the sailors brought ruin upon the infant settlement. The native Ota Leitans except the women who were taken by the seamen As wives being treated with great barbarity they formed a conspiracy and killed All the englishmen on the Island except four who contrived to escape. The native women who it seems had become attached to their English husbands revenged this massacre by murdering in one night every Otah Eitan Man in the Island. Of the four englishmen who remained two were worthless characters and did not live Long. The two survivor became reformed men and exerted themselves to make the Little Colony Happy and prosperous. Their names were John Adams and George Young. Under their joint administration the settlement continued flourishing until the year 1800, Whon Young died and Adams was loft alone at the head of Bis infant Community. In 1810 the Colony was first discovered by capt. Fol Ger in the ship Topaz of Boston. It was visited afterwards occasionally by several ships both american and British. In 1825 the Colony consisted of sixty six persons and the account Given by Captain Beechey who touched there represented a scene of innocent and tranquil happiness unknown since the Days of Arcadian simplicity. Adams was the patriarch of his people a Grey headed cheerful old Man. The Young men All born in the Island were stated to be very athletic and of the finest forms their countenances open and pleasing indicating much Benevolence and tadness of heart and the Young women were objects of particular admiration tall robust and beautifully formed their faces beaming Wilh smiles and unruffled Good humor but wearing an air of modesty and ?9 and All of to Lien both male and female had marked English features the greatest Harmony prevailed among whom Quot but what was most Gri if Ying Quot says a visitor Quot was the simple and Knafl Tecler manner in which they returned thanks to the almighty the Miny blessings they or. Blatchley now of the state of Illinois but formerly of the Sandwich Mission who stopped at Pitcairn s Island in 1827, says of this Colony that Quot a purer state of morals among the same number of people without the institutions of the gospel probably never and ims died in 1829, and whether it was from feelings of depression at his loss or from the supposition that the Island was too Small the increasing Colony being a Little spot six Miles Long and three wide or from some other cause the colonists abandoned their Happy Home and wont to Ota Heite. Here however they were soon dissatisfied and longed again their Little Gem in the Ocean to which they soon returned after having lost fifteen of their number by sickness and what is still More to be deplored us filtering some corruption of morals by their Intercourse with the Ota Leitans. On the return of the Colony to Pitcairn s Island the English government sent them a respectable gentleman or. Joshua Hill to reside among them As their magistrate and teacher. We regret to learn by a letter from or. Hill written last year and just published in the Sailor s Magazine that the condition of the Colony has not improved. The chief cause of their declension is ascribed to the presence of three runaway English sailors worthless and dissolute characters wt�0 have Torii a themselves into the bosom of the Little Community and though sent away from the Island once they have contrived to reinstate themselves to the ruinous corruption of the poor simple minded inhabitants. Or. Hill has left the Island and has sent to the British government a full account of its present condition in the Hope that a proper authority will be exercised in driving away the abandoned wretches who have poisoned the innocent enjoyments of an interesting Community and that thus the peace and happiness of former times May be again restored. We omitted to state in the proper place that Captain Bligh and his associates who were set adrift at sea succeeded in reaching the Island of timor after a voyage of twelve Hundred leagues in an open Boata fact almost miraculous. Upon the Captain s arrival in England the admiralty despatched the frigate Pandora Captain Edwards to go in search of the mutineers. Captain Edwards directed his course to Ota Heite but the object of his quest bad left that Island and it was supposed they were lost at sea. Nor was any thing known to the contrary until Captain Folger s visit to Pitcairn s Island in 1810.�?fiatmore american.
