singular relic :of antiquity, which .is thus
spoken of by 111r.-.Britton, the celebrated
Architect: ."This I believe,,inay
it will beloniiillentiouS . elabOrate acid sin`=
gulaiinteresting. The Chapels of King's
College, St. George,' and Henry VII., are
all conformable the styles of the
ages :when they. were erected,' anil
these styles Misplay a gradual advancement
in lightness and profusion of ornament ;-
but the Cliapc.l at
,Itoslin combines the
solidity ot 'the Norman with the minute
decoration of the lateit species of the Tu—
dor age. It is impoSsible to designate the
or himiimpluf this building by any given
tricity of its rnro!',7•:=..m.i4e.tsr• .eccon.,
words of coinmon acceptatiOn. I ask-some
of our obstinate antiquaries how they, would
apply eithei the term Roman, Saxon, Nor
man, Gothic, Saracenic, English or Gre
cian, to this building?" So far, the learned
Mr. Britton. As tq, my unlearned, self, I
can only say, that it was one of the stran
gest and - most curious specimens of archi=
tecture I ever saw; and worth a day's jour-,
ney to f look at. The guide, who gels a liv
ing by showing this rare lion, seemed pom
pously aware of the iminensity,.of his sta
tion. Ile flourished about with a long pole,
and recited' at least a dozen orations, con
cerning different portions or the edifice,
barbarous Gaelic, to the great, amusement
The lords' of Roslin lie buried .beneath'
the pavement of
,the, Chapel. The guide
pointed to a figure on one ..of the stones,
representing an effigy Of a warrior with a
greyhmind crouching to his, feet, and
lated to us the following story (as,translated
to us by our host.) This is the monument
of Sir William de St. Clair,.baron'of Rol
lin. He was one day hunting with King
Robert Bruce, when a (leer was started on
Roslin Moor. St. Clair •wagered his
head tliat hii 'hounds, Help-and-Hold,:
would overtake the deer and kill it. ere it.
crossed the burn of March.. Vie animal
bounded nijnbly forward towards the burn.

it touched the Opposite shore, .and down

at .Ports Mouth. - Captain Adamson was
constantly . complaining

Adamson; for a considerable pertion of
his life had held some post at an isolated
coiner of One of our West India Islands,.
and being the 'head , Utickra,' while there,
acquired an. idea of his own importance,
with which, on his revisiting Britain, lie
was reluctant to part. Ile was, in the .
main, however, a kindly disposed person,
but very illiterate, and not over-blest • with
natural sagacity; yet despite the constant
freedom of Ridley, the Captain was never
so lippy--as,when-inllissub's. society.
---- 0 n - o - day, - me venirel ows - a the—superior
opined 'that his lieutenant had carried the
joke toe far. The head:,and front of hips, ;
offending was that-of having called Adatt--
son 'Jimmy,' in the presence of some la
dies, at whose house the Captain flattered
himself 'that he was a welcome guest, not
only from' his amusing convemtion, but
from his rank in the-army,
`l(ever.yon presume to call me-so tau
I shall take serious notice of it," he sput
tered;--`James-would be,quite_bad_enon'gh,_
