mitigated penalties of English law; and this our tribute to that better code, which gives the moral while it enjoins the obligation.

" Quid tristes querimoniæ,

Si non supplicio culpa reciditur ?
Quid leges sine moribus

Vanæ proficiunt ?

The ancients had a fabulous account of a youth, who, having detected his mother in the act of Adultery, with his own hand slew her on the spot. This youth's name (Phasis) was afterwards transferred to the river of Colchis, on whose banks grew the plant deuxo Quados, stated to have been a remedy for adulterous propensities. But these were “ old wives' fables.” The real antidote to all crime, and all inclination for sinful pleasure, is only to be found in the word of God ;that is the true Phasis. The river of Jordan and the brook Cedron are better than all the waters of Colchis: there, only, the leprous may wash and be clean ;* there alone is nourished the tree of life,t whose leaves can heal the nations from the painful diseases and wounds of sin ; and among whatever people the influence of its motives is really felt, it may be said, in the language of the Roman historian; “ Plusque ibi boni mores valent, quam alibi bonæ leges."

In page 100 of the Essay, the Author has inserted an extract from an anonymous Pamphlet, published in the year 1801, which, by mistake, he ascribed to the pen of Sir Alexander Croke ; and, in the progress of his Essay through the press, he took the liberty of inserting several other passages from the same Pamphlet, imagining it to be out of print: but he was not apprized, till it was too late to correct his error, except in the present manner, that that valuable Pamphlet was re-published last year, and is the production of the present learned and Very Reverend the Dean of Westminster, Dr. Ireland; to whom, therefore, the Note, in page 100, is meant to apply. The mistake originated in consequence of the anonymous Pamphlet in qaestion having been bound up with an Essay of Sir Alexander Croke's, on a subject not very unconnected with the present, prefixed to his Report of the celebrated Case of Horner and Liddiard, in the Consistory Court of London, in the year 1799.
