I do not icaa to say, that all literary men are of ecessity good-for such is not the case ; ut I do say, that there are but few profes. ons more innocent, or better calculated form the christian charactcr. jTlie liter ry man mostly lives in company with the liighty sprite of the past, and the beings of Ilis own mind. 1 rue, he studies the hu nan heart in his daily walks, but the gaeat. r part of his knowledge is gatliered from he past, and from thence his mind readies iirward into futurity, so that the field over vhich his soul mayJoam in search of Tiis loTn is boundless as the uniwrse.

If it is true that the mind will pe employed throughout eternity ; in bring, fng to perfection, those itudies which have Cngaged ita attention hero, and that the feippiicas of that world wU be increased in proportion 'to Its earthly 'iknowledge, it is Reasonable to conclude tha4 the man of sci. pnee and wisdom will enjoy heaven more than the thoughtless and ignorant "The ptipcrior intellectual views M'hich some in. jilividuals shall possess beyond others, will constitute the principal distinction between mm in tho heavenly state."

The great number of figures which ho took from the grand or beautiful objects of nature, aflbrd sufficient proof tliat this poem was composed in the seclusion of the country. 1 ' It was after his travels through Europe, that Milton retired to a secluded place near his former homeland produced Paradise Lost that grainiest effort of mere human genius. .. Little credit can be given to cities for their influence in producing this inimit able work. For it, we are indebted to the Bible, to the vast and comprehensive mind and brilliant imagination of Milton. ; Dur ring the later part of his life, this great man was blind ; but his mind jwas store d with images" from the book of nature.
