that we could not have an association with the Dutch in one body, nor come formally under their conduct being such a promiscuous conjunction of Lutherans, maliguanis, and sectaries, to join with whom were repugnant to the testimony of the Church of Scotland. This rational decision at such an important crisis shews these enlightened persons' zeal for civil and religious liberty to have been similar to the refined parental affection of the French lady of rank, who suffered her infant to starve rather than feed it out of any dish but a porcelain one.
This singular and entertaining volume is embellished by etchings of the well-known Duke of Lauderdale and his duchess, who has much the air of what she was, a woman of gallantry, rather too old for the profession; and of Archbishop Sharp, whose countenance neither augurs ambition nor pride, but seems on the contrary grave and evangelical: two curious vignettes are also given, one representing an allegorical defence of the candlesticks of the church by two sturdy Whigs: the other a bas-relief on the sumptuous tomb of Sharpe, exhibiting the scene of his murder. There is another curious etching from a picture of the battle of Both well Bridge, preserved at Dalkeith House; the original, however, has not the merit of exhibiting an accurate landscape; for the houses on the right-hand bank of the Clyde, some of which, coeval with the battle, are still standing, are whimsically transferred to the left bank. The reader owes these illustrations to the editor, who is distinguished by his genius and execution as an amateur of the art.

When it appears we may probably resume the discussion which we have now broken off abruptly.

The matter now rests between Major General Sir Thomas Dallas and Mr. Huddlestone—the one maintaining the truth of the charge, the other denying it. Nothing has yet appeared to alter one iota of our opinion, •which is that, as far as the late Sir George Staunton is concerned, the story is altogether destitute of truth—and we think it incumbent on Mr. Huddlestone to prove it to be so.
