and composure of a Chriftian, whofe views and hopes extend beyond this tranfitory fcene. Both before and after the arrival of his friends he was observed to be frequent and devout in mediation; and his earnest request to Mr Smith's family, upon enter jog the house, was "that they would both pray with him, and pray for him." So much intrepidity of mind, united with fo much patience and Chriftian refignation, in a man to young, and in poffeffion of every thing that could make life defireable, was what both furprized and pleased the fpectators. From the nature of the wound, and the materials with which it was inacted, his Lordship's fufferings muft have heen great; notwithstanding which, co unmanly complaints, no vain regrets, fcarcely a groan, except where the extremity of pain compelled it, efcaped his lips. As they were conveying him into the houfe, he repeatedly obferved, that his fervant was not to blame in what had happened; and hoped that his friends would be kind to the man, and comfort him. The poor fellow, indeed, requires this comfort, and has received it from the family at Holkham. He was faithfully attached to his master, and continued for fome days fo overwhelmed with the magnitude of the evil, of which he had been the innocent infrument, that he wandered about in a State of mental imbecility, closely bordering upon infatuation. When he arrived at Holkham with the firft intelligence of the accident, they could collect little from him but I have thot my lord! the kindeft and best master that ever lived!" From the time Lady Andoverreached Mr. Smith's houfe at South Creake, until the moment of his Lordfap's deceate, the scarcely ever quitted his bed-fide. The firmness and prefence of mind, with which her Ladyfhip fapported the moft exquifite fenfibiliLies of grief, performing, wah promptirude, every office of duty and affection, are fubjects both of encomium and imitation. The remainder of this melancholy flory may be difp.tched in a few words. His Lordhip died, as has been oblerved, on the 10th of January; and, on the 12th, his body was inclofed in le d. The El pf Suffolk, his father, was not anxious to Convey the corpie into Wiltshire; his only request was, that it fhould be privately and refpeciably buried. On Monday the goth inftant, therefore, his Lordship's remains were removed, in an hearte and fix, to e hurving-vault belonging to Mr. Cokt's family, at filefnall, in Norfolk.

Sixteen of Mr. Coke's moft refpectable tenants attended, by appointment, in faneral habiliments, to bear the coffin and the pail. Two coaches with mourners followed. In the first were, as chief mourners, Mefirs. Coke, E. Coke, and Anfon, members of parliament; in the fecond, as mourners, two brothers of Mr. Anfon (clergymen), the Rev. Henry Crome, fen. and the writer of this narrative. At the tomb, every thing was conducted with that reverence and decorum which genuine forrow never fails to infpire. It were unjuft to clofe this account without obferving, that, from the first moment Lord Andover entered Mr. Smith's boufe, until the last folemn fcene, no fervice that religion, or hofpitality or slegant accommodation, could afford, was omitted, either by Mr. Smith or his family. I have now difcharged the duties of respect to the memory of a deceafed friend. I hope I have difcharged them, with a faithful and a true heart. To guard against mifrepresentation, I thonght it necellary to make this ftatement of an event that has excited univerfal fympathy; and with which I had an opportunity of being well acquainted. It is a painful fervice; for, I write under impallions of grief. The lofs of such a man as Lord Andover, and in fuch a way, conveys to the mind ideas of difappointment, as well as of forrow.-It now only remains to offer fome remarks which arite from the foregoing relation. Every intelligent reader, when he perufes the narrative of Lord Andover's untimely death, will call to mind the fate of the late Marquis of Tavistock. There are many points in which the cafes correfpond. Both were young Noblemen of great promife; both were married to young and amiable wives; both fell during the lives of their fathers, purfing the iports of the field! These iaftances of mort lity are not furely given by Providence in vain. They exhibit a fine leffon to the furvivors; and teach them to be upon their guard, "fince they know not the day, nor the hour, when their Lord cometh." The clouds that obfcure the fun of earthly, enjoyment are black and frequent. The accidens that inter rupt the progrefs of human plans are un forefeen, and irrefiftible. Let no man, therefore, however he may poffefs the means of happinefs, reft confident of the end; neither let tam fay, like Seged, lord of Ethiopia, when he rifes in the morning, "This day thall be a day of pleasure." WENMAN LANGTON.
