 PREFACE.

T he following Memoir of a very valuable
youth is with much diffidence and respect
presented to the public, and solicits their
attention; and it is hoped, that a careful
perusal of it will leave a salutary impression
on the mind. In the present day, the press is
teeming with works whose tendency is to
vitiate and corrupt the minds of our youth.
Works of fiction and romance are making
unfavorable impressions, giving a wrong
bias, leading astray from the sober useful
walks of life into the airy regions of fancy,
unfitting many for the regular discharge of
necessary and important duties, and rendering
them tiresome burdens to themselves, and
useless lumber in society. The patrons ...

In a memorial presented in 1835 to the Lords of the Admiralty,
the author of the journals which form this volume details his
various services. He joined the Navy in October, 1793, his
first ship being H.M.S. Blonde. He was present at the siege of
Martinique in 1794, and returned to England the same year in
H.M.S. Hannibal with despatches and the colours of Martinique.
For a few months the ship was attached to the Channel Fleet, and
then suddenly, in 1795, was ordered to ...

Thk principal part of the following, notes of the trial of D. H. Corey, were
taken in the course of professional engagement, and without a view to publication.

To the circumstances which have induced the reporter to commit them to the
pre»s, it ¡9 unnecessary to advert.

The notes of the evidence have been examined by J. Wilson, jr. Esq. one of
the counsel for the government, and L. G. Mead, Esq. who took brief notes of the
evidence during the greater part of the trial, and a few additions have been made
on their suggestion.

The remarks of the Counsel, with the exception of those of the Solicitor, have
been revised and drawn out by the several gentlemen engaged in the trial, and
the notes of the charge of the Court have been submitted to the revision of His
Honor the Chief Justice.

The incidental conversation which occurred during the trial, was not taken
down at the time, except in a few instances. So far as it could be recollected
with accuracy it has been incorporated.

It is believed that nothing has been omitted which is essential to a correct
understanding of the case. On the 15th of June, 1829. ...

[The Publisher’s Preface.]
TO THE READER.
THE seventeen sermons contained in this volume are the onlv
pieces of the late Doctor Symon Patrick, lord bishop of Ely, which
have been published since his death. They were composed in the
prime of his years, and very fairly written out by himself in one
volume. They were put into the bookseller’s hands by his relict,
Mrs. Penelope Patrick, now living, with her desire that they might
be made public.
The author was so eminent for his great learning and singular
piety, and his practical writings and books of devotion have been so
well received, that the booksellers think it a considerable recommen­
dation of these discourses, and the prayers annexed to them, that
they can assure the world they are the genuine works of that excel­
lent prelate, and printed with great care and exactness from his own
manuscript. They have also been assured by their friends who have
perused these sermons, that as men’s being contented in all estates
of life is a matter of great consequence to their happiness, so the
reader will here find the duty of contentment very fully treated of,
and recommended with all ...

fTl HIS volume has been published by direction of the CEcumeniaal
Methodist Conference, 1901, and contains a full and accurate
account of its proceedings. The Editors were instructed to print the
Essays, Invited Addresses, and Remarks as they were published in
the daily issue of the Methodist Recorder, with corrections made by
the Essayists and Invited Speakers on proofs sent to them. These
instructions have been adhered to, and the whole volume carefully
edited. We can hardly hope that mistakes have in every case been
avoided, but the utmost care has been taken to secure aocuracy in
passing the volume through the press.

The Numerical Statistics contained in the Appendix were carefully prepared by the Committee appointed for that purpose, and
every effort has been made to secure their accuracy. It is to be
regretted that it has not been possible to compile all the statistics suggested in the Conference, but the supplementary statistics
of the Eastern Section, although incomplete, may be regarded as
substantially correct.

The publication of this volume, and the holding of the Conference
whose proceedings it records, mark an important epoch in the progress of Methodism throughout the world, and the Editors trust
that ...

It m^y, indeed, be read with interest anywhere, but it will awaken

sketches of the character and condition of our fishermen forty years

Two other moral lessons he has set down for his guidance,
which are authenticated by his initials R. A. They help to
show that he was a better Christian than scholar:

Abbott’s narrative of his imprisonment reveals the bar­
barous hardships to which prisoners were in former times
subjected in gaol whilst awaiting their trial; and the diffi­
culty of procuring his liberation shows the perils to which
the liberties of the nation were exposed at the trying crisis
of the Revolution. Its principal value, however, consists in
its complete refutation of the statement made by Richard
Kingston in his True History, that Abbott was apprehended
at Coventry in company with Lunt, the notorious informer
against the Lancashire gentry at the Manchester trials, in
the August of 1689, as ...

The Early History of Babylonia
IV. THE EARLIEST SEMITES.
^HE earliest history of Babylonia at present attainable presents
I us with a jnore or less continuous struggle between three or
four principalities occupying the delta of the Euphrates and _
Tigris. The underlying factor in this struggle was no doubt in
essence a racial one; it meant the continual friction between
the mountaineers and steppe men of the north and the culti­
vators and townsmen of the south, and is typified in the Bible
by the struggle between Cain and Abel, between the agriculturist
and the shepherd. The shepherds and nomads in the present
case were, for the most part, the people whom we collectively name
Semites, a race whose annals fill such a notable place not merely
in the secular history of the world, but also in the development of
its religious ideas, and which has maintained a force and vitality
throughout the ages quite unexampled elsewhere. Schlozer, in
Eichhorn’s *Repertorium,’ viii. 161, published in 1781, first gave
the name Semitic to a group of languages which are united
together by very close ties, and of which Hebrew is a type.

An annuity was assigned to trustees, in trust to pay the same to such persons as
Lady Barrymore should, by any writing signed by her, notwithstanding her
coverture, appoint, but so as not to deprive herself of the benefit thereof by sale or
other anticipation ; and, for want of such appointment, in trust to pay the same to
Lady Barrymore for her separate use. Held, that Lady Barrymore has not only a
limited power of appointment, but also, under the latter part of the clause, the
general uncontrolled dominion over the annuity.

Under an indenture of the 28th of February 1794, the Plaintiff Lady Barrymore
(who was then the widow of Richard, Earl of Barrymore) was entitled to an annuity
of £300 for her life. She afterwards married the Defendant J. M. Williams; and,
by an indenture, dated the 29th of May 1795, after reciting that, upon the treaty for
the marriage, it had been agreed that the annuity should be assigned to trustees for
the separate use of Lady Barrymore in manner after mentioned ; Williams and Lady
Barrymore assigned the annuity to trustees, in trust during their joint lives, to pay
the annuity, as the same should become due and payable, to ...
