— The excellent archbishop of Cambray, with eve- ry advantage which genius, learning, profession, and situation could confer; the admired pre- ceptor of the duke or Burgundy, appomted to the office by the king himself, was yet in the beautiful work which he composed for the use of his royal bupil, driven to the necessity of couching his instructions under a fictitious narrative, and of sheltering behind the veil of fa- ble, the duties of a just sovereign, and the blessings of a good government : he was aware, that even under this disguise, his delineation of both woulatoo probably be construed into a satire on tho personal errors of bis own king, and the vices of the French government, and in spite of his ingenious discretion, the event justified his apprehensions.Fortunate are tho subjects of that free and happy country who are not driven to have re- course to any such expedients ; who may, without danger, dare to express temperately what they think lawfully ; who, in describing the roost perfect form of government, instead of re- curring to poetic invention, need only delineate that under which they themselves live ; who, in sketching the character, and shadowing out the duties of a patriot king, have no occasion to turn their eyes from their own country to tho throoos of Ithaca or Salentum.The appearance of a valuable elementary work on the principles of Christianity, which has been recently published in our lanj^nage, translated from the German under the immediate patronage of an august personage, for the avowed purpose of bonofit to her illustrious daugh- ters, as it is an event highly auspicious to the general interests of religion, so is it a circum- •tance very encouraging to the present undertaking.
If, in such ca^ ses, the wants and weaknesses of human na-* ture could indeed be wholly effaced, as easi- ly as they are kept out of sight, there would at least be some reasonable plea against the charge of cruelty.
