ceeded him in his business; a transition very little less, although not so sudden, as that of the famous Whittington.
P. 667.-Dr. Robert Hooper was the author of some medical works, and left a fine collection of paintings.
Vol. IV. p. 89.-The late Earl of Devon has left but little of his property, over which he could exercise the power of testamentary disposition, to his own relatives. To his coachman and wife, and their children (whom, during his lifetime, he had caused to be educated far above their station), he has left the Charenton estate, and the house in Paris, with all his personalities, among which are some articles of rare value. Powderham Castle, in Devonshire, with 50007. a year out of the Irish estates to keep it up, have descended to the present Earl, who has commenced repairs at that venerable edifice. The surplus revenue of the Irish estates to Viscount Courtenay, eldest son of the present Earl.
P. 101. Professor Bordwine of Addiscomb College, was author of a new System of Fortification, published a few weeks before his death, and of another publication relating to the conduct of General Whitlock, under whom he served, on account of which he was compelled to throw up his commission (a Majority). He was an American, and a man of decided talent.
P. 209. After some controversy in the Ecclesiastical Court, the will of the late William Cobbett was proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, and the effects of the deceased sworn to be under the value of 1,500l. In the first instance a citation had been issued at the suit of a creditor to call upon William Cobbett, the son, and sole executor, either to accept or refuse probate of the will of his father; and he agreed to administer to the effects, which are to the amount above stated. There are no specific legacies, but the testator bequeaths the copyright of his works, and all his other property, to his eldest son, William Cobbett, and desires to be buried near his father and mother, in the churchyard, Farnham, Surrey. The will is dated the 14th Dec. 1833.

P. 325. Mr. Henry Parke published about the year 1827, a map of Nubia, which he prepared in conjunction with his fellow travellers, J. J. Scoles and F. Catherwood. All the solar observations were taken by Parke, and the map was entirely by him. He was a painter of no mean merit, and succeeded alike in oils and in water-colours. His subjects were for the most part architectural and nautical; he had made a study of naval construction, as well as that of his own peculiar profession. Parke was not, however, a mere architect and artist; he had real claims to the distinction of a scholar, being, as he was, a good classic and versed in several modern languages, an excellent mathematician, an astronomer and a scientific musician. He was, moreover, excellent in all the social relations of life, and the strong attachment with which he was regarded, and the esteem with which his memory is cherished by all who had the good fortune to be within the circle of his friends, testify in the strongest manner to the amiability of his manners and the affectionateness of his disposition. He is believed to have been in his 43d year.
P. 331. The late Mr. Rippon, of the Bank of England, furnishes an extraordinary instance of the manner in which the mind becomes warped by continued and very close application to business. He always declared he felt himself no where so happy as in his business; and, though for upwards of fifty years in the Bank, he never solicited but one holyday, which being granted, he left London with the intention of being absent a fortnight; but the ennui of an idle life, and the want of his usual occupation, so preyed upon his spirits, that he actually returned to the Bank at expiration of three days, stating that green fields and country scenery had no charms for him. Mr. Rippon was always remarkable for his sound judgment, preciseness, and extreme punctuality, and his long
P. 217. Dr. Owen Pughe laboured as a lexicographer with industry and success for a period of twenty years; but his exertions were never properly rewarded. In 1206, he succeeded to a handsome property, which the Rev. Pryce Pughe, a relation, left to him, and he had the happiness to live in comfortable circumstances many years before his decease.
