Glos. I 'll blast his harvest, if your head were

laid; For yet I am not look'd on in the world. This shoulder was ordain'd so thick, to heave; And heave it shall some weight, or break my back. Work thou the way, and thou shalt execute.

[aside. K. Ed. Clarence, and Gloster, love my lovely

queen ; And kiss your princely nephew, brothers both.

Cla. The duty, that I owe unto your majesty, I seal upon the lips of this sweet babe. K. Ed. Thanks, noble Clarence; worthy brother,

thanks. Glos. And, that I love the tree from whence

thou sprang'st, • Witness the loving kiss I give the fruit.To

say the truth, so Judas kiss'd his master, • And cried—All hail! when as he meant-All harm!

[aside. K. Ed. Now am I seated as my soul delights, Having my country's peace and brothers' loves. Cla. What will your grace have done with Mar

garet?
Reignier, her father, to the king of France
Hath pawn'd the Sicils and Jerusalem,
And hither have they sent it for her ransom.
K. Ed. Away with her, and waft her hence to

France.
And now what rests, but that we spend the time

With stately triumphs, mirthful comic shows,
Such as befit the pleasures of the court ?
Sound, drums and trumpets !-farewell, sour annoy!
For here, I hope, begins our lasting joy. [Exeunt.

NATIONAL GALLERY

OF

PAINTING AND SCULPTURE,

IN THE BEST STYLE OF OUTLINE ENGRAVING ON STEEL;

WITH

A DESCRIPTION OF EACH SUBJECT, AND A BRIEF MEMOIR

OF THE ARTIST;

UNDER THE SUPERINTENDENCE OF MR. A. J. VALPY.

Tue erection of a suitable edifice for the reception of the Paintings now exhibited in the National Gallery in Pall Mall, and of the Sculptures at present deposited in the British Museum, for which purpose a sum has been granted by a vote of Parliament, will doubtless serve to increase and maintain that exalted taste for the Fine Arts, which is best calculated to support and invigorate the aspiring talents of our most distinguished Artists. It may therefore be reasonably hoped, that, on the completion of the building, the Collection will be so materially increased by donation or purchase, as to form a School of PAINTING AND SCULPTURE, the utility and advantages of which will be appreciated by every admirer of those ancient and modern productions of genius, which grace the public and private Galleries of the present age.

The munificent donations of Sir George Beaumont, Bart. and the Rev. Mr. Holwell Carr have already greatly extended the value and importance of the Collection of Paintings originally purchased by the Government; and the public spirit of private individuals may yet, it is hoped, tend to realise the expectations of those with whom the National Gallery originated, and to place it on an equality with those of the Conti

nent.
