I noted once a case from Walea, in the

was plaintiff or defendant : and one of tbe

Company. These are the only instances
in which I have met with the name in
that country. 1 have found it in our early
records ; but the first particular infor
mation 1 have of any ancestor, was of my
grandfather, who lived at the place 'in
ChesteiGf Id called Osborne's, and owned
the lands afterwards the glebe of the par

Joshua Fry, Professor of Mathematics in

cyy or that, hi ardent and ambitious tern
ptrament was never hurried into acu.
that his own cooler judgment would
have disapproved. But this much can be'
asserted without dispute, that whenever
measures were coolly planned by himself
they looked to no epbemeral or party ob
ject, and were steadily pursued, to the
loss frequently of his popularity for the
moment, and the temporary., destruction
of inVpo4itical influence.:. . Tbe.same par
ty which in 1812 rejected him from their
ranks, joined in 1816, in his almost unan
imous election as governor; again aban
doned and loaded him with contumely in
1818, and finally at the close of his life,
cluttered around him as their leader and
most distinguished ornament.
in all these changes of popular feeling
there was no change in the policy or
practice of Clinton ; the fickle multitude
which at one time lauded him as a god,
and at another covered him with obloquy
had leaders who'dlrened, andpartisans
who trimmed to the breeze of varying
opinion ; but Clinton tad a soul too loliy
a spirit too independent to barter princi
pie for popularity. Had he been inclined
to suit his measures to the popular senti
mem, to abandon his own schemes upon
the first breath of discontent, he might
have lived the idol of 1 party, spared him
self many a shock from the estrange
nient of those he fancied friends, and even
bequeathed wealth to his family. But

There is no resemblance ot the hero 01

Peel, all the prints and portraitssenous
or comic, with which the pbfjSc have
been favored, are as little like as may be
tn the original. The engraving from
the picture of Sir Thomas Lawrence is a

Comjnissionerof His Majesty's Treasury.
I am morally certain that aomo great
a' ate mystery is shrouded in its folds, and
I shall dive into every club and coffee
house in London, until I arrive at its so
lution. Feel's personal phenomena are
s'rongly characteristic, and the fugitive
expression of his features will always
make him a suitable subject for a "painter.
His appearance docs not outstrip the date
of his years in the parish Register. He
is above the middle height, something
stoop shouldered, and of proportions in
differently balanced. His hir is of an
eartbl red, his dress careless and quire
like w'r.h an air of idiosyncracyabout his
depiessed fashion, a la fiuriton. 'I'he
Secretary's voice is even and harmonious

the Dukt declares himself in the pop-pop
