To his euloglum on the writinks of Dr.
Goldsmith, little can be objeete, and few
perhaps would be willing to join ssue with
him on that point; but I mistak widely if
he is not singular in the judgmePt expres
sed concerning the Pte -eminent e of this 1
author over lord Byron. A rigiir scrutiny
might prove that the, former was isomewbat
less "pro fl igat e " . in his habits thsin the lat
ter; and yet if history were to 'sniffy in'the
' case, T apprehend his Honour reeld find
some difficulty in adducing even prima
facia evidence to sustain the facts. But
I peace be to their names. It is their cipa
-1 cities as poets that he examines and coo
-1 trusts, and it seems a goOd dealuna-ecoun
l 'table that he should so readily resolve
every thing in favour of his fesourite, as
ho calls the Irish bard. No , whilst I
reiterate the respect which I his muse,
I can reproach myself with no eaning to
wards licentiousness, tier with ny wish to
I I detract from just reputation, wen I rank
I myself on the popular side in tits question,
declaring'my hottest conviction i that in all
the great essentials which go o make up
the sum total of poetic eicollecce—a rich
imagination, language at once glowing and
sublime, happy - execution, tke.,—Byron
must be ever considered as tr lament - lent.
It is not my intention, boweve , to delibe;
rate or dwell on this subject, much less do
I moan to derogate from the a i
lted worth
of the lecturer. We have i ,frorp 'very
good authority, that " Home sometimes
nods;" and all that could be prge4 under

only amount to this: That from ione so

had a right to expect less passion, and
more extended and fruitful criticism in a'

• The Frederick Times. a Van Buren Conse?va.
live paper, makes the following prediction in its
last number. •
"We will make a prediction for the benefit of
the deluded and misguided Sub-Treasury men.—
It is this—lf the Sub-Treasury is not given up
io a very short time, and Mr. Rives' substitute
carried by the aid of all our friends in Congress,
Perimint.vsins will go for the Whigs by ten
thousand majority. Don't forget that we made
this prediction, when the election shall have taken
place and the result made known."
The same paper in another paragraph, may,—
"If the Administration wiU return to the princi
ples which it bas abandoned, we think it possi
ble that it might be able to sustain itself, but if
the present policy is adhered to twelve months
longer, Mr. Van Buren will not receive the elec
toral vote of a single State in the Union, in If 10."
Just so. But the Conservative Times would
vainly strive to reclaim the Administration, and
thus do real service to the Executive. The Pree
ident has made his bed with the loco.fiicos, or al
lowed Blair and Kendall to do it for him; and
there is therefore no hope of his reform in this
particular, and• no hope for conservative princi
ples during the remainder of his term of office—
happily never to be renewed. As was said of
