A friend at Bristol, who knew their mortal antipathy, had invited them both to dine, in hopes of reconciling them, and they parted in the evening in feeming friendship; but the Captain placed fome of his men in the fireet, near College-green, to carry off his brother, under pretence of his being difordered in his fenfes, to his fhip, where he caufed him to be frangled in the cabin by two of the crew, White and Mahony, himself standing at the door. Such an atrocous deed could not long be concealed: the Captain and his two accomplices were tried at Briftol the 28th of March following, and executed April 15. He had behaved bravely in his profettion on feveral occafions, been at the taking of St. Sebaftian, Ferrol, and St. Antonio. His eldest fon, Edward, fucceeded to the title, and dying 1761, fiagle, was fucceeded by his brother John, who died at Dublin, 17857.

He bore an excellent character in his neighbourhood, which I cannot quit without expreffing my fatisfaction in the arrangement of the adjoining parish of Bartlow, in Cambridgeshire. Mr. Hall, who is rector in his own right, and an active magiftrate, has inftituted a Sunday.. fchool, of which his clerk and gardener is the mafter, and himself and Mrs H. jointly affift him. The parfonage stands on the South fide of the church, and Mr. H. has improved the flope of the hill as a pleafant garden and lawn, and covered the South fide of the church with flurishing fruit trees. The church with its round tower prefents a picturesque. appearance; and a few poles diftance to the South are the five fepulchral hills, fuppofed of Danifh origin, of a conical form, and different heights, and four of them planted at top with clumps of trees.

Baker's Letters retp Ching Bithp dan et, P. 725, add, To Bhop Burnet I have no more to fav than that, intlead of compliances, I gave him the highest provocation, fuch as mof men would have highly relented, but few bcfices himicif would have printed. Bu my principle is not to high as you ma 1magine. I hold communion with the Eftablithed Church: the new communion I do not underitand."

"No man ever had more enemies, or has been more defpitefully treated. I with you could find time to read his Lite, written by his fon, which has given me more entertainment than his hiftory."

In another letter Mr. Baker fays,"Mr. Caite's work meets with foine delay from his infirmities, having been much difabied of late by a theumatifm; but is now pretty well recovered. I am told by a good hand that he might have been Dean of Windfor if he could have accepted. You know he is in orders though he appears in a lay habit." May

ON/

Sept. 10. N the authority of actual infpection, with a friend who would not be imposed on in fuch matters, I take upon me to defend the reading of the Southweli infcription, given in the new edition of Cainden, II. 290; and by your correfpondent, LX. 699, 79,, though pointed differently from both. It is on the pillar Exulis, and followed by a coIon, whereby it is infeparably connected with fantis, and made a dative plural, instead of your correspondent's genitive fingular. On what authority Gervafe Lee, the writer or compofer of this infcription, preferred exuls to exulibus, let grammarians decide.

The paffage ftands thus:

Det Deus hoc funclum fan&tis fit femper afylum

Exulis: izolatras facrilegofque ruat. The meaning is more obvious than the Latinity is correct.

Against the front of the George inn at Northampton is this infcription on a white marble tablet, lately renewed:

Some of your correfpondents may perhaps trace out this John Dryden and this Robert Pigott, efqrs. which is more

Mr. URBAN, Bishop's Auckland, Sept.6. FEW week ago the following letter of Mits Ta bot's came by accident into my hands *. On account of its excellence, I fend it for infertion. I. S. "June 10, 1747.

"A twelvemonth ago, dear Mr. ——, I left a letter and a parcel for you; for who thought of your running away into Ireland? At length I hear you are returning; but, as I fuppofe your wandering itars will not lead you towards Oxfordthire, and our kind planets will probably keep us there leveral monthis, there is no likelihood of our meeting till after Chritmas. i muft, therefore, leave you tome explanation of my parcel.→ In the first place, 1 maft remind you of what I dare lay you have forgot, that i am confiderably in your debt.

It not only turns off one's mind from whatever is at prefent uneafy to it, but it gives one the moft rational grounds for happiness. To read fuch a book, is to talk with an agreeable friend of the most interesting ubjects. If you are for more fublime fpeculations, more elegance of thought and language, Mr. Additon's little book is as charming a companion as I know for a morning's or an evening's walk.

Mr. URBAN,

Robert Lynch, M.D. of Canterbury, entailed a part of his eftate.

If the church notes from Rufhall, co. Staff. in the Topographer, vol. II. p. 203, be accurately taken (and there is no rea fon to prefume they are not), there is no epitaph for Sir Edward Leigh in that church, but only for his grandfon Sa muel. Your, &c. N. S.

July 3. SEND you a copy of the monumental infcription in Afhover church, on the widow of Immanuel Bourne, rector and patron of that place. Her husband was buried at Ailefton, in Leicestershire, as mentioned in Mr. Nichols's "Collections" for that county, p. 543; and therefore has no monument in Afhover church. Several of his defcendants are buried at Afhover*; and the Rev. Law-Mr. URBAN, rence Bourne, of Dronfield, in this

county, the great grandfon of Immanuel, is the prefent patron and rector of Afh over. The infcription is in the chancel, on a large flab of freeftone, part within and part without the rails of the altar.

"Here lieth the body of JEMIMAH BOURNE, the eldest daughter of Sir Thomas Beckingham, of Tolfon Beckingham, in the county of Effex, and Dame Elizabeth, his wife, and the relict of Immanuel Bourne, late rector and patron of this church, who died June the 19th, 1679, aged 79." Yours, &c.

Mr. URBAN,

July 5. I SEE an enquiry in your laft Magazine, p. 504, for the epitaph of Immanuel Bourne, at Afhover, in the county of Derby. I was there a year or two fince, but find no fuch person mentioned in my notes, It appears from a mural tablet in the chancel, that Obadiah Bourne, M.A. died April 8, 1710, æt. 64; and his widow, Jan. 19, 1711. I tranfcribed the following, which is at the fervice of your correfpondent:

Near this place lies interred REBECCA, wife of OBADIAH BOURNE, A.M. Rector of this parish, and daughter of John Lynch, efq † of Grove, in Kent, who departed this life Aug. 31, 1754, æt. 62. As her life had been remarkable for the amiable qualities of an affectionate wife, a tender parent, and a fincere friend, all heightened and improved by a principle of religion; fo her death was greatly lamented by all who knew her, but by none more justly than her difconfolate Hufband, who erected this monument to her memory, and ordered that, at his death,

his bones fhould be laid near her. There is a grandson of this match now living, in Orders, on whom the late Dr.

AMONGST the many ufeful purpofes for which your Miscellany has long been celebrated, it has no fmall merit in reviving enquiries after detached literary works, bringing under contemplation the unedited labours of our predeceffors, and thereby aiding the revival of perishing literature.

The queries and fuggeftions with which your learned correfpondents, from time to time, furnish the Gentleman's Magazine, operate, as I have often thought, in the manner of fencing or parrying with a file; they raise the fkin, caufe an irritation, and fometimes pierce deep into the flesh, an operation which generates matter, which, without a pun, it is often neceflary to difcufs. With thefe reflexions, I address myself to you, claiming a few moments of your attention to the following queries, fully fenfible that, through the medium of your Repofitory, I am most likely to obtain the information I am folicitous about.

1. Have the executors or adminiftrators of the excellent Dr. John Brown, author of the "Eftimate of the Manners and Principles of the Times," fulfilled that part of his will which required that his work, "The Principles of Chriftian Legislation," should be publifhed immediately after his deccate? If not, why has fo important a bequest been withheld?

2. The learned English hiftorian, Thomas Carte, published four volumes of the History of England to the date of 1654. His defign was to bring down the narration to the Revolution, but death interrupted it in the year 1754. His materials, I apprehend, are lodged in the Bodleian library, after having been confulted by Earl Hardwicke at the price of acol.; and by Mr. Macpher fon, who paid 3001. for a perufal of them, from whence he compiled the. beft part of his Hiftory and State Pa pers.

How long is the world to be deprived of these valuables in truft ? 3. Is there any real good edition of the
