been raised above their level by the promoters and members of

the nu. merous agricultural societies: their former humility and respect for their superiors is nearly gone by; and by having purchased the farms they before tenanted, they have formed a new class of country esquires, but without the sentiment of birth, or polish of education. When then it is considered what manner of men we have to deal with, the legislature must be sensible, how urgent the necessity is, that an amelioration of the state of the inferior Clergymen may enable them to preserve their rank, and utility in the world. I shall say but one word more on this point, and that is, that after all the guards and restraints the bill has placed on farming, the system of new regulations, from the constitution of church property, must remain imperfect; for what is to prevent that portion of the clergy from engaging to a very large extent in it, who have received by the inclosure acts, allotments of 4, s, and even 1200 acres of land, as a commutation for tythes, unless the government, which it is not likely to do, should invade the rights of private property, and direct how much of his own land each proprietor shall cultivate ; so that, whilst the poor vicar is pining in want, and receiving the charities perhaps of his parishioners, dealt out to him as their dependant, (a degradation which a farm might have rescued him from), his wealthy neighbour, though of the same profession, is filling his barns with grain, and laying up the stores of future abundance. Whether then the allowance of farming, in a less restricted sense, may not be worth the reconsideration of the legislature, I humbly submit-If it affects the character of the clergyman in one degree, jt will in all; for it must be carried on by the intervention of the same means; and I know no other pursuit for them of a more harmless and inoffending nature, and so intimately connected with the great object of the bill-residence ; and I believe it will be a much more agreeable sight to the Lords of manors, to see the parish priest superintending his reapers, than amusing himself in the destruc.

POETRY, GENTLEMEN, The beautiful simplicity and energy of the following lines, so expressive of the sensibility and piety which produced them, will, I trust, ensure their insestion in your next number. They were presented by the writer to




OES that soft sigh, that angel smile,

Speak nature's last adieu ?
That awful pause, that rests awhile,

Eternity in view.
That look, expressive of delight,
That seems to say,

6 I come
With sister angels take my flight,
My God now calls me homę.'

H 2


And are those Eyes for ever clos'd

By Death's eternal seal :
That heart where purest virtue glow'd,

Has it forgot to feel
Silent is all !--Thou can'st not hear

Sorrow's o'erwhelming storm,
Nor feel these agonising tears

Which tathe thy lifeless form!
The clouds of darkness are dispers’d,

New rays of light appear;
An angel rises from the dusi,

Celestial joys to share.
The soul unfetter'd, wings its flight,

From ev'ry earthly claim,
To regions of eternal light,

To praise a Saviour's name.
Tbis thought my bursting heart should ease,

As I thy pains review;
The pang which bade pulsation cease,

Was faiat at ļo this adieu !



GENTLEMEN, BEING of opinion, that the following elegant lines, addressed to the

ingenious and respectable Mrs. Clara Reeve, authoress of the Old English Baron, and many other useful and entertaining publications, will be an acceptable present to your readers, and afford them the same de. light they have afforded me. I send them to be inserted in your

miscellany. This I venture to do without the consent or knowledge either of the author of the lines, or of the lady, to whom they are addressed; As, however, they reflect honour on both, I indulge the hope, that the publication of them will not prove displeasing to either.

I am, Gentlemen, your's, &c, Rempstone, Feb. 21, 1803.

E. P."

Lines addressed to the Authoress of the OLD ENGLISH BARON, on

reading her M. S. treutise on Conchology.

FROM guilt's black terrors, and from feats of arms,
Honour's high tone, and gentle love's alarms;
From energies, which all the soul engage,
Charm list'ning youth, and sooth reposing age,
See Clara's muse to humbler scenes descend
(Her course tho' varied, still the same her end)
The lonely strand, the silent deep explore,
And from mute shells extract the pious lore;


Mark their rich tints, pursue their flowing line,
And in each beauty trace the Hand Divine.

Thus Clara's labour rests, and thus the sun,
His daily course of active glory run,
Whilst milder splendours o'er his ey’ning close,
In ocean's bosom finds at length repose,


T night's late hour, I view'd Eliza pale,

Her cheeks then white as lilies of the vale,
Lol as the skies refresh the plants with dews,
So balmy sleep ber wasted strength renews,
Now, her loy’à cheeks their vermeil tints disclose,

And change the lily for the blushing rose.
