Addison's beauty of style no one questions that we know. All that we pre tend to say is that we can find passages of Irving that are pure poetry by mere meas- urement of the lines as they now stand in prose form ; nnd nothing in Addison or any body the can surpass such a standard.

Chatham had during some time absented himself from Parliament in consequence of his growing infirmities. He determined to appear in his place on this oc- casion and to declare that his opinions were decidedly at variance with those of the Rock- ingham parly. He was in a state of great excitement His medical attendants were uneasy and strongly advised him to calm himself and toVemaiu at home. But he was not to be controlled. His son William and his son-in-law Lord Mahon.accompani- e$ him to Westminster. He rested himself in the Chancellor's room till the debate com- menced and then leaning on his two young relation! limped to his seat.
