CORRESPONDENCE. We have to thank Mr. Gregory of the R. M.

"That work, we beliere, is not to be procured of the French booksellers. Our copy is much at Mr. Gregory's service, and will be left for him at our publishers; he will at the same time be furnished with a reference to our friend, who has a few copies in his possession.

A worthy friend who concludes with the words Cavețe el valete may be assured of our respectful attention to his note.

We had understood from the author of the Sermon to which a correspondent from George St. alludes, that it was out of print.

Price 21. 2s. Cundee. ' 1807. THE appellation of mother-country has been familiarly ap

plied to England in relation to America, and there was a time when the title was very flattering to her vanity, and perhaps very gratifying to her parental affections. She fancied herself grown young again in the unfolding charms, the vigorous health, the rising stature, and the active spirit of her hopeful descendant, whose name she was continually repeating, whose lineaments of resemblance to herself she fondly traced, and whose honour she watchfully and even fiercely defended, against every suspicious or unfriendly demonstration. She looked round with no little exultation, mixed perhaps with no little contempt, on some of her neighbours, who could not shew so fair and virtuous an offspring

For some time all went on very well. The matron, feeling no rivalry with the blooming minor, was liberal in her indulgences and moderate in her claims; while the daughter, conscious of the necessity of protection, revering a personage that every one else was seen to revere, and affected with the kindness of the parental caresses, was happy in the exercise of an almost uniform obedience. The time, however, inevitably arrived when she could no longer be treated as a child, and to the elder lady the wisdom was not given, to know how to behave to her as a person come to maturity. The matron began to feel a certain indefinable jealousy, which gradually displayed itself in a change of deportment from easy cordiality to manners of alternate formality and petulance, followed by a more Vol. III.

Oo

rigid exaction of the homage and the services which she had been accustomed to receive in the earliest years of her young relative. The daughter expressed her regret at this change, mingled with a degree of pride which ventured to intimate that the age for silent obedience and unconditional submission was past, and presumed to mention counter-claims, in the way of compromise. The senior dame, incensed to hear of conditions and stipulations from what had been so lately a helpless dependent brat, made short work, and reduced the question to the alternative of absolute submission, or the utmost vengeance of her power. The damsel was instantly fired with the spirit of an amazon, sought the acquaintance, and accepted the aid, of her mother's most inveterate rival, and finally declared she would establish herself in the world, separate and free. This determination she carried into effect, with a courage and address which triumphed over the greatest difficulties ; and she has ever since maintained the behaviour of an equal, tolerably civil when she has experienced civility, and indifferent or contemptuous, when the old lady could not, in her manners, re.. press her spleen at recollecting, how lately she possessed an absolute authority over this arrogant virago.

Since that period, the maternal title has sounded but ungraciously in the ears of the personage, who has lost both the authority and the affection which render it flattering. In plain terms, the English nation, while contemplating the American States, is rather mortified than pleased, in recollecting whence they have derived their origin, and would perhaps regard them with somewhat more complacency, if they had been a people .prung from some distant and forgotten stock. It had been less grating to our pride, to have acknowledged an independence inherited from a horde of Esquimaux or Tatars, than an independence assumed in requital of our patronage, and in defiance of our power. We hear of their advancing population; agriculture, and commerce, not without some occasional feelings like those of a man who observes the flourishing condition and ample produce of an estate which he lately called his own, but which an expensive litigation; and an adjudgement of what he may deem very questionable equity, has transferred to another clainiant. This feeling will be occasionally awakened, till the present generation shall be passed away, and succeeded by a race to whom the loss of America will be, not a matter of irksome remembrance, but merely a fact of history, like the loss of our ancient possessions in France. .

Perhaps at length, when America shall have grown into a magnificent association of empires, the pride of having been their origin will be kindled afresh, and England, become, as
