he was entered at Trinity college, Cambridge, but removed from that society the year following to Christ's college, in the same University. He took his bachelor's degree with distinguished honour in 1802, being second wrangler. The year following he received a fellowship of that college. From his early youth he gave the promise of extraordinary attainments in literature; his mind was stored with much acquired knowledge, and he possessed a judgment clear and comprehensive, which enabled him to select the most useful parts of science; while his superior taste led him to chuse for the objects of his imitation the most pure compositions of antient and modern literature. His life opened most auspiciously; his friends beheld with joy the dawn of uncommon talents. There seemed nothing in literature too difficult for his attainment; his application was unwearied, and he was not merely a student by profession; he brought to literature an ardent and à noble mind, fraught with all the enthusiasm of a poet, and all the soberness of a critic. While at the Grammar school at Carlisle, his compositions were admired for possessing force, elegance, and beauty, far beyond his years; and his friends could not help expecting anxiously, that powers of mind so highly gifted, with application so

ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS.

His

and manly, might achieve a distinguished situation in the learned profession which he had chosen.-The late Mr. Grisdale was an eleve of that celebrated Divine and Philosopher Dr. Paley; he had read his works with uncommon attention, be admired the close texture of his style, and the great force of his conversation. college vacations were passed at Carlisle, where Dr. Paley occasionally resided. With this gentleman, with Dr. Milner, dean of Carlisle, and the Rev. J. D. Carlyle, Mr. Grisdale was on terms of the greatest intimacy; they all did justice to his promising talents, they saw the superior force of his understanding, they acknowledged the versatility and the energy of his mind, and no doubt expected to see him rise above the level of mank u.-Carlisle, though remote from the metropolis, and a very inconsiderable city, contained occasionally a society of learned men, as eminent as any in the kingdom. The first of these was Dr. Paley, whose writings are universally diffused and read; to attempt any eulogium on Paley in this place, would be superfluous; but the world is not acquainted with his excellent conver sational powers.-To him we may add the Rev. Dr. Milner, dean of Carlisle, and master of Queen's college, Cambridge. Though Dr. Milner has not established so permanent a reputation as Dr. Paley, his abilities are of the first order; as a chemist and natural philosopher, he has at

tracted

tracted much notice in Cambridge; but,
as an excellent preacher, his reputation is
confined to Carlisle. If a person were to
create in imagination, as Cowper says,
a preacher such as Paul," the dean of
Carlisle would best answer the description.
The fervour of his piety is equalled by the
extent of his knowledge. The various
powers which he brings to his task is
amazing; his arguments and illustrations
are so clear, and his conclusions so ener-
getic and striking, that he attracts univer-
sal attention; and the cathedral is, during
the time of his residence at Carlisle, con-
tinually crowded. To these eminent men
we may add the Rev. J. D. Carlyle, then
chancellor of Carlisle, known to the world
of letters by his beautiful translations from
the Arabic. Mr. Carlyle was a man of
fine taste for poetry and painting, and at
that period had just returned from his
travels in Greece, Asia Minor, and Italy.
Unhappily ill health at that time had be-
gun to impair those excellent faculties
which promised to their possessor both
reputation and opulence. Mr. Carlyle
lingered for two years under a painful dis-
order, which terminated in his death at
Newcastle upon Tyne, in April 1804, of
which place he was vicar.-The last of the
celebrated junto was the Rev. William
Sheepshanks, formerly of St. John's col-
lege, Cambridge, and prebendary of Car-
lisle. He had travelled through France,
Switzerland, and Italy, with the son of Sir
Thomas Rumbold, and had surveyed the
buildings and paintings of Rome with the
eye of a counoisseur; his memory was
tenacious, and his good humour and con-
versational powers were inexhaustible.-
Three out of the four of these celebrated
men are now no more. Dr. Milner only
survives. The present sketch makes
known to those who peruse it, the faint
lineaments of one, who, had he lived to
complete the usual term of human life,
would probably have been enrolled among
British Worthies, and he would have had a
more celebrated pen to write his biogra-
phy. He had talents to have shone as a
statesman, a legislator, a legal luminary,
as great as any who now are exalted in
superior situations. His early friends in

vain look round in society for a substitute for his intelligence, his frankness, his independence, his noble qualifications, and his eminent endowments.

P. 606. The family of the late muchrespected Edmund Malone derive their descent from the O'Connors, Kings of Connaught, which name they originally bore; from whom a branch took the present name of Malone, from Mael Eoin (Bald John), and gave name to the district in Westmeath. From this family descended Edmund Malone, who, 1569, possessed Ballynahown, the family residence for many centuries. From him descended Edmund Malone, who, 1644, had two sons; Edmond, the eldest, possessed the family residence, now enjoyed by his descendant. Anthony, the youngest, in 1673, married Mary Reily, great-grand-daughter of the first Earl of Roscommon, by whom he had Richard, a barrister, whose eloquence and abilities were conspicuous, and died Jan. 1744-5, having married Marcella Molady, by whom he had issue Anthony, Edmund, Richard, and John; the two first were called to the bar, and practised at the same time with their father, viz. Anthony, born Dec. 5, 1700, whose abilities raised him to be Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1757, having been Prime Serjeant at Law in 1754; he married in 1733, Rose, daughter of Sir Ralph Gore, bart, and sister to the Earl of Ross, and died May 8, 1770, without issue. And Edmund, born April 16, 1704; in 1759, was made his Majesty's second Serjeant at Law; and in 1766, one of the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas. He married, May 26, 1736, Catharine, only daughter and heir to Benjamin Collier, of Ruckholts, in Essex, esq. and died April 22, 1774, leaving issue: 1. Richard, who was created a Peer, July 5, 1785, as Baron Sundertin, of Lake Sunderlin, in the county of Westmeath; and, November 7, 1797, was further created Lord Sunderlin, of Baronston, in the county of Westmeath, with remainder (as to the latter barony) in default of issue male, to his then only brother Edmund; 2. Edmund; 3. Anthony; and 4. Benjamin, both of whom died young; 5. Henrietta; 6. Catharine.
