At Canterbury we stopped ten millofOi to visit all the remarkable buildings and curiosities in it, and about its neighbourhood the church is beautiful: when OLIVER CROMWELL con. quered WILLIAM the THIRD, he perverted it into a stableâthe stalls are still standing-the old Virgui who shewed us the church, wore buck- skin breeches aud powderâhe said it was an ar- ehypiscopal sea, but I saw no sea, nor do I think it possible he could see it either, for it is at least seventeen miles off-we saw MR.

FUTIIEB looked at a high place and talked of sin AK*PKAR E, aud saiutlut of his own head, (littic bt!autiful lines.- â'1 Halt way down â¢â¢ Hangs ,,iie that gathers camphire, dreadfil trade." This, -IIthink it but right to say, I did not myself.â Methinks he seems no bigger than his head, The fishermen that walk upon the beach It Appur like mice." This, agaiu, I cannot (juits agree to, for where we stood, (lie), looked exactly like men, only smaller, which I attribute to the effect of distanceâand then MR.

FULMER meant by cock a boy-howtver, LA v i n i A seeuied to comprehend it all, for Ih- turned-up her eyes and said some- thing about the iwmortal bird of I)tiavati-so I suppose they were alluding to the eagles, which doubtless build their aviaries in that white mountainâ(immorlul bard of Avon, the lady means.) After dinner we read the Paris Guide, and looked, over the list of all the people who had been incontitient during the season, whose names are all jtut down in a book at the iun, lor ihe .114 iu'14 lor lt)O parpou-we went to rest, much fatigued, know- ing that w* should be obliged to get up early, to be ready for embrocation in the packet in the inorniug, We were, however, awake with the owl, and a walking a way before we went to see toe cai(ts-whicil was built, the uian told III, by SEIZER, SO called, I conclude, ftoin seiguij. whatever he could lay his hands Oil-the man said moreover that he had invaded Britain and conquered it, upon which I told hitn that if he repeated such a thing in nay presence agaiu, I should write to MR.

I heard MR. FULMER say he was a son ()f IN] AltR'S he spoke it as if every body knew his father, so I suppose he itiust be the son of the poor gentleman, who was so barbarously irmr. dered some years ago, near ltiitciitfd Highway if he is, he is uncommon genteel. 11 At twelve o'clock we got iowa hoat and rowed to the packetâ¢; it was very fine aud dedi for the seasou, and Mr. IVULMKR said be should not dul ke pulling LAVIMA about,all the utom. ing this 1 believe was a uaughtycal phrase, winch 1 did not rightly comprehend, hecaUat; Mr. F; never offered to talk in that way ou shore to either of us. The packet is not a parcel as I laaagmed, in which we were to be made ep for exportation, hut a boat of clllllllderable size; ie rs called; cilitcr--vvhy, I do not did not like 10 ask. It \V4 very curious to ee how it rolled abllul-however I felt qu'tte mat apropos, and instead of exciting any of the soft selisibilities of the other sex, a great unruly man, who heid the handle of the ship, bid me lay hold of a compa- nion, and when 1 sought his Sim for protection, he introduced me to a ladder, down which I as seuded into the cabin, one of the most eutious places t ever beheld, where ladies and gentlemen ate put upon shelves like books in a library, and where tall meu are doubled up like boot jacks, befoie they can be put away at all. ( quite shocked to-find what democrats the sailors are-ttley seeoi to hate the nobility, u,ld especially the law lords: the way J, disco. vered this apathy of theirs to the nobility, was this-the very moment w« lost light of Eugland and were close to France, they began, one and all, to swear first at the peer, aud then at ihe bar', io such gross terms as made my very blood I U.) cold. ⢠⢠was quite pleased to see LAVINIA sitting witli Mr. FULMER in the travailing carriage on the outside of the packet. But LAVINIA afford- ed great proofs of her goood bringing up, by commanding her feelii)gs-i,t is curioes what could have agitated the billiary ducks of my Sto- mach, because I took every precaution which is recommended in different books to prevent ill- dispomtion. I had some inuttou chops at break- f"f, some Scoleh matmalade on bread and but. ter, two eggs, two cups of coffee and three of tea, besides toast, a liltie tried whiting, some potted iharr, and a few shrimps, and after break- fnst J took it gliiss of warm white wine negus, ami « few oysters, which lasted me till we got into the boat, when I began eating gingerbread nuts, n.)I the way to the packet, aud then was peisuaded to take ? glass of bottled porter to keep every thing simg and comfortable." And here eodt our present communication.- We are mightily obliged to Miss HIGGINBOT- 0aliti shall with great pleasure continue the journal, whenever we are presented with it.
