DEVOTION TO MATtP.
The subjoined outburst of devotional enthu
siasm, according to tbo Monittnr dut'Armer, pro
ceeded Irom tbe lips of Lieutenant I'annndu
llu.ier, commander of tbe transport I.icorne, at
tbe bead of a pi gTimage made by bis rrew to the
temporary tomb of Nupoleon I, at St. Ilclona, on
tbe anniversary of the birth of that benefactor of
turope und mankind :

Saitles was one suen as, before the Anatomv Act,
used to be accomplished by our resurrectionists.
It consisted in the removal of his remsins to

Tbe pious Lieutenant's Christianity is evidently

SHAKESPEARE 8 LIMHAnY.
"Shakespeare's books, it seems, are beini dis
covered in various directions. His 'Prayer
Book' is reisjrted to have turned up somewhere
in Wales, and it Is probable that be took it with
lilm there in eiue he might have to go to church
while on the journey he took to get up fifts about
the Welsh lady in Jciiri IV. lie was very par
ticular about going to church, as mast be clear to
nil students of his history and writings. Tbe
Dramatic Authors' Society bave K Kid hopes of
discovering his Hover's 'French Dictionary' one
of these days. We trust also to hear of tbe re
very of his 'Book of Cab-fares,' which, ns is
well known, Mippestcd to him the line in Macbeth,
'fare is foul and foul is fare.' We fear that his
lust 'Bradshaw' is destroyed, a' least wo have no
evidence that the poet imitated tbe one careful
man of our own time, who binds his old 'Brad
cbaws.' but bis 'Euclid,' from which he drew tbe
beautiful imitge In tbe HVrifer' Tale, about 'the
Angle that plucks our son thither,' may yet bo
tieard of. und we shall rejoice with unfeigned joy
to learn that bis 'Book of Ktiqu tte' has reap
peared, from which no doubt ho got the idea for
the rule he preserilics (in Henry 111) to gentle
men who go for a walk with ladies:
"I were unmannerly to take you out,
And not to kn ou "

Lord ralmerston and Mr. Gladstone may both
of them undoubtedly he viewed as leading men,
Iiut it hardly seems respectful to name them in
the same biea'h with a comic singer.or to expect
them to "combine utility" with any such a per

not thoroughly perceive, but perhaps tbe leading
xuan is merely wanted for the purpose of joining
in the eboius when tbe comic singer sings. We
can fancy what an audience would be attracted
to a theatre, were it announced tint Lord Pal

Mist the Clown in singing tbe ballad of Hot

The field-pieces of a former ugo wore machines
of iron or braes, immensely cumbrous, and almost
unmanageable. The problem to be solved was,
how to render a gun more portable without
lessening its projectile force. After full consider.
ation of the matter, liobcrt Scott came to the
conclusion that thcro was "nothing like leather
Of hardened leather, tbcrofore, he construuted
guns. The correctness of his Idea was totted by
experiment, and tho result was considered to
show the immeasurable superiority of leather
over brass and iron. Why he did not lay the in
vention at the feet of his own liege sovorelgn, it
is needless to inquire. Perhups he did so and
was snubbed for bin paints, as other Inventors
have been since his time. At all events, he raised
a company of two huudred men and went over to
Sweden, where he wus welcomed by (lustavtis
Adolphus, who. seeing bis ability, and the value
or bis discovery, lortnwitu toot mm into uis
service, and at the end of two years rewarded
him with an olUce of Quartermaster-General of
After five years' service under Gustavns, he
repaired to Denmark, where he was appointed
General of the King's Artillery; but soon nfter
wards yield ing to the advice of friends, he returned
to England and tendered his scrv.ces to his own
sovereign, King Charles I. This step, which was
taken in 171!'., turned out a very prolitable one
for the Colonel. Ho was received with open
arms bv Charles, who appointed him one of tho
gentlemen of his privy chamber, granted him an
nnntial pension 01 it.oo out ot me iouri ui
Wards, and purchased for him a bouse in Lam
beth at a cost of 1000. Colonel Scott, however,
did not live long to enjoy these tokens of tho
royal favor; for, dying in 17:il, ho was buried in
Lambeth Church, where a sumptuous monument,
still to be seen, was erected to bis memory by his
loving wife Anne, whom he married lu France.
The sculptor has represented tho Colonel as an
urmor-clad, fierce-looking man, wearing a heavy
moustache and a pointed beard.
In the very rear 01 ino coionct 1 acain, nus-
tavus Adolphus had an ample proof or tne eiiee
tiveness and utility of the leathern artillery, at
the memorable battle of Leipsic. The guns were
found to be so cosily portable that a small bat
tery could easily bo removed from one part of
the field to another, or a new battery was mde
in the space ol ten minutes ; and wncn a iresn
attack was alxiut to be made on the ptrt of the
enemy, a buttery was immediately at hand to re
pel it. In fact, it was in great measure owing to
the invention of Colonel Scott that the Swedish
King obtained so glorious a victory; and the
imperial General Tilly himself was constrained
to admit that the portable cannon performed
wonders. Mow it came about that the leathern
ordnance was shortly afterwards laid aside as
worthless is difllcult to explain, or even to
conjecture ; but it is not recorded to have initio
any subsequent appearance on tbo battle-tiold,
ilwnioh a leathern cannon was lired la Edin
burgh so late as the year 17H8 probably out of
cutioMty. All the tear liouna.
