Political disquisitions are inadmissible; as being foreign to the design of the Orthodox Churchman's Magazine.

The case proposed by Ruffordiensis is fitter for private opinion than for public discussion.

The “Essay on an important text in the book of Job," will appear in our next. It came too late for the present number: which makes us again request that all communications may be transmitted to the Editor before the 15th of the month.

We have received some letters complaining of our neglect in not reviewing certain books said to have been fent' to us for that purpose. In aniwer we can only say that those publications never came to our hands.

Except we will acknowledge some power in the Church to de

The Life of the Most Reverend THOMAS HERRING,

D. D. Lord Archbishop of Canterbury.

THIS eminent and amiable prelate was the son of the T reverend Mr. John Herring, rector of Walsoken, in Norfolk, at which place the archbishop was born in 1693. He received his education at the grammar school of Wifbeach, in the isle of Ely, from whence he removed to Jesus College, Cambridge, in 1710. He was chosen fellow of Corpus Christi College in 1716, and continued a tutor there above seven years.

In 1719, he entered into priest's orders, and became suc. cessively minister of Great Shelford, Stow cum Qui, and of Trinity, in Cambridge.

Dr. Fleetwood, bishop of Ely, made him his domestic chaplain in 1722, and soon after, his lordship presented him VOL. XIV.

M Chm. Mag. Feb. 1808.

to the living of Retindon, in Essex, and the reEtory of Barly, in Hertfordshire.

On the death of Dr. Lupton, in 1726, the honourable society of Lincoln's Inn chose him their preacher, and about the same time, he took his doctor's degree, and was appointed chaplain inor dinary to the king. In 1731, he was presented to the rectory of Blechingly, in Surrey, and towards the close of the same year was promoted to the deanry of Rochester.

In 1737, Dr. Herring was consecrated bishop of Bangor, on the death of the honourable and reverend Dr. Cecil, and the fee of York becoming vacant in 1743, by the death of Dr. Lancelot Blackburne, he was renioved to that high station.

When the rebellion broke out in Scotland, and the highlanders defeated the king's troops at Preston Pans, the archbishop removed the general panic, and awakened the nation from its lethargy. He convened the nobility, gentry, and clergy of his diocese, and addressed them in a molt animated speech, which made such an impression upon his auditory, that'a subscription was immediately entered into, amounting to forty thousand pounds, and this noble example was suca cessfully followed in all parts of the kingdom.

During the same period, the archbishop entertained in his palace at York, the learned and worthy mathematician Mr. Maclaurin, who had fled from his professorship at Edinburgh, on the approach of the rebels to that city. “ And here,” says Mr. Maclaurin in a letter to one of his friends, “ I live as happily as a man can do who is ignorant of the state of his family, and who sees the ruin of bis country.”

On the death of Dr. Potter in 1747, his grace was translated to the fee of Canterbury; in which important station he conducted himself with great affability, liberality, and dignity, He bestowed his patronage with a careful regard to merit; and among the many men of ability and genius who partook of his favours, were Jortin and Birch, Hawkesworth and Fawkes. Dr. Jortin has left an account of the friendship which the archbishop had for him, and it is too curious and interesting to be omitted in this place. “ Archbishop Herring and I were of Jesus College, in Cambridge; but he left. it about the time when I was admitted, and went to another. Afterwards when he was preacher at Lincoln's Inn, I knew him better and visited him. He was at that time, and long before, very intimate with Mr. Say, his friend and mine, who lived in Els' house; and Mr. Say, to my knowledge, omitted no opportunity to recommend me to him. Afterwards 'when he was archbishop of York, he expected that a good
