To the Editor of the North (Vales Gazelle. SIR, After what I bad written in answer to your Correspondent J. J. it did not appear to me that it would be requisite to animadvert far- tiler on strIctures of so unworthy a descrip- tion. But as, in his fiftli Iettei-, lie his at- tempted to say something in what lie is pleased to call defence, of his having changed liie word Gahius into Gabii, when iv ing a passage as a quotation from my translation of tile British Chronicle, it may be expected that I should not permit even such a defence to pass wholly tiiiiioliced I therefore once more trouble you on the subject. However virulent the effort which your cor- respondent displays, and however persevering his toil to write down the publication, which is the object of bis animosity, it cannot but afford gratification to the author, that the unfairness and ill bcralily of the censures are such, -s a simple reference to the hook iiself must In g-elleral at once discover When the Collectanea Cambrica was given to the world, its author was perfectly appriscd lhat he miiriit have some difference of opinion to encounter, as to several subjects on which his own, afler 4oisji and laborious researches and serious de- liberation, did not coincide with that which has generally prevailed and be had 1 too much respect for I be public and for him self, to lay an) thing before it either without due consideration, or without stating the ar guments on wlvch Ills own opinion, especially where the topic had, or miht he thought to have, any appearance of novelty in it, was founded. He was not so vain, or so ignorant as to look for an unhesitating concurrence on some of them which had long been involved in obscurity, and on which a satisfactory degree of probability is the most perhaps that can he obtained. With truth alone 111 view, and Ihe greatest probability where certainty could not be had, after diligent enquiry, he wrote and published without a wish to sacrifice either truth or probability, to Iny other cunsidera tion, or to deprecate fair criticism. To those who are conversant in the history of remote ages, it is well known that much is obscure, and the means of developing the truth ilt many cases very scanty. That the best informed men sometimes find it difficult lu assign the correct limit between tiiat which appears credible, and that which may safely be rejected as false, where the ignorant will decide without scruple. The school boy will despise as idle tales that mythology, from 11 y which a mature knowledge will deduce proofs, and an illustration of the progress of primaeval traditions Whether in the Collectanea Camb. the ahove dlstanctions have been correctly oil served or not the author hall a right to ex- pect that whalever was controverted, if should not be misrepresented s and that, if any pas sage was quoted, it should he quoted as it was printed; and not as it neither was, nor could have been intended to be so. Honour and common honesty demand thus much, and it IS more with coil) iiiiserit ioll for the error of. different conduct, than with any other senti- ment, that I notice what is so unwiseU ttazarded cvell hy an anonymous writer. As to the general styte of the strictures, it is jus! such as a Bavins in Rome may be supposed to have made on the first Dccad of Livy, soon after its publication which foverlooking 11;,0 introduction) he would do probably in some such manner as this. The fabulous tendency of this history is best exemplified by staling the general tenor. As to the long list of names, the fabricator has certainly taken the opportunity of swelling the narrative to the utmost extent and attributing to most of them some fabnlotis exploit or oilier. He brings -Eneas to Italy, where finding it difficult how to dispose of him, he makes him to be receivett with grealcivililv hv the eood old I atid to malr Ilis daughter.— This history abounds with the most absurd fictions, it says tlwt Homulus and Renins were suckled by a wolf, that the Romans he lleved Iht Romulus was carried to heaven in a thunder storm that a single man, with a single eye, defended a bride against a whole army. It abounds with speeches never spoken, .1. and with anachronisms. Julius Cssar, who lived a hundred years after, is made the Son of Iscatiius, and Junius Brutus, who killed Cassar the first Consul. The capture of 1; ome by Ihe Gauls, is taken from tiie capture of Athens by Xerxes." Such a species of criti cism needs no answer. The more immediate subject which may require some reply, is that which concerns your correspondent's giving an erroneous statement in quotation. 1 had hen inclined to attribute his rashness of as sertion, and his misrepresentation* in the pas sages quoted, to a levity of mind and confusion of ideas, not perfectly under I lie control of a cool nleitt. I am sorry to observe that, from the defence itself, if assumes a more serious complexion since the error appears to have been deliberate and wilful, lie says, "My reason for changing Gabius into a town, contiguous to Rome. was from (meaning, as I suppose, det-ivedfrom) the frequent instances which occur in the Chronicle of similar trans- I formations, and because nosuch name appears in the Fasti Consulares In page 159, the Milvian bridge is in like manner converted to a Roman senator." Had the alteration been made thro' mistake, or even thoughtlessness, and properly acknow- ledged, or had the sense not been affected by the alteration, I should have said no more concerning it though even an oversight or mistake ( which it is eot very possible always to avoid) is blameable 111 proportion to its importance. But here it is avowed as an intentional act, the consequence of which could not but operate to the injury of the hook from which it was represented as being a quotation ? unless the misrepresentation was discovered. Or, at least, such was its known tendency. The word. as it stood originally, would not answer his purpose, and therefore. without giving any intimation of what it was originally, he alters it and thereby the sense, and endeavours to makt it pass for the ori- ginal. Where then is the difference when a mati. who finds that a Bank \ote of st. will not serve his purpose, al'.ers (he five into fifty, and presents il as having been originally hfly ? In moral estimation certainly none. The only difference is as to the penalty by course oflaw. But ii is alleged,that trequent instances of similar transformations occur .111 the Chronicle. Even were Ihis so, though I know of none, how would this jusliiy him ? Just as or e .literalion in a Bank iN <>U; won't! justify a similar one in another. The error 11, the Chronicle, 1! it did exisl would no! jnsiuy his. ? find as follows .•—'•And of the Roman seuaie there were Lucius, the Rotnau general, Ca dell and Meyric, Lppidus, Caius, Mel alius, Colin, Quint us, Milvius, Cai ulus, and Quinius it, this passage, in which alone in tliis,page, and I believe, in tiie Chronicle, the name Milvius occurs, I must confess 1 cannot perceive any, even the slightest intimation of a bridge though I confess there is the name MdvÍ! all(! nlso that there was a lvli!vi:w bridge at Rome. If-then it follows that the Rumsn bridge has in this passage been trans formed into a Senator, I fear we sh iil have sumls!. tr-msforiiial4ons to fkcouwt for nearer home For Burn, itlhis Be. Law, quotes a Chief Justice Holt. Now, as on the cUllhlèS of is a If oil bridge, it would in like manner follow, that Born has f r snsforined a bridgeinlo a Chief Jmtice. Whether he has done sfi, or not, is a ponv-t which 1 will leave to your correspondent's accuracy dfinvcstiga lion Ihe validity of tiie argument being equal in both rases. As to the second reason, viz- that ihe name Gabius"d^es nol appear in Ihe Fatli Consulares, or list of Homan o-tistils." Why should it in a lipl v. hrch has so few names hesides those of Consuls? If ihal o:f Porscnli(l is noticed, was it necessary lo notice a col league of inferior, or even of equal rank, when the historians attribute the conduct of the war to Porse-iiiia ? At mosl the omission of the name could only be a reason for doubting the correctness of such a name in another record, but it could be no justifiable one for such a substitution as your correspondent has made. ![I file note on the word Gabius, I had said Gahii belonged to the Taiquins, and hence any of that family may have had the name of Gabius;" whereby il was plainly inticrated i considered the word Gahius, as signifsiag a Gabian, or the Cdbian, a sense consistent with the history and all which only casts a deeper shade OH AC disingenuousness of your correspondent. What could be the motive lo such a pro ceeding, it would have been difficult lo con ceive, had not the writer declared thai his> object in this at tack is io prove the genu- ineness and 3ufhcilticil V of the oldest and most venerable British writer extant." Whe Iher it is the similarity of purpose which ex- cites his veneration or whether your corres- pondent,prov'denll)' anticipatin;; an cstah!ish ment of Popery ill his zeal by vindicating Ihe calumnies of one of ihe 1-. omish Church, who lias prefixed ihe name of (1 sIdas to a forgery, it is not for me to ticieviiiiiie. Thai he is no stranger to the ilomi^h mode of attack, or, as I am more in clined lo think, that the plan is of such origin, is to. my apprehension nol very improbable.— He has opened the trenches at a distance, and ihen assailed the out-works, and as he pro. ceeds towards the ultimate object of demo- lishing the fair fame of Use British primitive church, does not seem to forget the Roman maxim of Dolus an virtus quis in hosf.c rcqui-rat ? To succeed in Ihis object it will indeed be necessary to estahlish the authenticity and genuineness of this libel. Now what do we find in the very first paragraph of this sup- posed Gildas, whose history excites such ve- neration ? Kveu this, that the Romans when I they crossed over into Britain," hroughtwitit them the terms 011 which the Britons were to slIbmit. and met with no resistance tint the British nation being unworlike, tho' Pagans, were subdued, not hy arms or engines of war, as other nations were, but by fhreals alone, or 11 civil prosecutions and exhibited an outward shew of obedience, though grief sunk deep in their hearts." Sue!) is the fidelity of ihis writer. It is well that Cjcsar's Commentaries are yet extant.— He did not find it so. if then this venerable writer, as your correspondent holds him to be, sets out with such an infamous falsehood, what credit can his subsequent assertions merit r Surely none as his. Some few fads, even fo support the pretence of writing his- tory, be was obliged to notice, and of these there are but few. which he has not turned to the disadvantage of the Britons. These mis- rci)t-csetit,,itiotis ii)ay be very get-viceal) Ic to your correspondent's purpose but as he has already given himself plenary indulgence, it might be prudent for him to pause before he proceeds lo a farther extension of it, lest it should become eventually a ruinous evil to himself, for he may be assured that whatever momentary object may he gained by sucii means, ultimately they never prosper. P. ROBERTS. Oswestry, 16/A May, 1813.
F, ol- ihe ivoi-th tvales Gazette. NUMBER III. THE Author of the 1 otlectanea Cambrica has selected many passages trom Gildas, in which he fancies be has discovered a marked attempt to advance the papal power, but which, upou enquiry will be found to have nusllch tenden cv. The first III the author's series of irrefra- gable arguments is the term, » venerabilis mater Ecclesia, which occurs 111 Gildas. which is undoubtedly as applicable to the British as to tiie Roman Church. In his opinion, howe- ver, none, but a professed Koiuanist would have used it; such a shadow of an argument needs no refutation. The next expression which is produced, as demonstrating- a design of establishlog popery, is that of recommend- ing a person -who is slyied, it Prmceptorem pene talius Brilannios elegantem magistrum." This person is supposed by the author to he St. Auslin, in which supposition there is what he calls-a small anachronism-small certainly ttheu compared wilh those of the Brut, Is it probable that the author of this supposed forgery could have conducted it so artfully, and yet he guilty of so gross an error as to recommend a person who came over to Britain many years after the death of Gildas ? The person alluded to by Gildas is, in all probabi liiv, liis own Preceptor flitilkis, wli,se ac-,ide my, it appears trom Leland, was attended by the most distinguished characters of lhat a^e or it might be Cadocus, who was living in thp time of Gildus, and established the monastery "t Llaucarvan, a person highly respected,and the preceptor of illulns. At all events, it t-,iiiiiot I)c Atistiii who I. alitided*lo, .,vii(i w-,iq posterior to Gildas The next irrefragable •argument is, that the British Clergy are ac Cii'-efi of usurping <he chair of St Peler dan r'etri iposl ili usurpantes" i e. ac < ording lo the author s translation, they con sHli'rt'd IL"ir OWl! mc!ropoli!all :'IS their head. a;id would not acknowledge ihe Pope." The context will admit of nosuch interpretation. Peter is here contrasted »ilh Judas, and Ihe British Clergy accused of tollowill lhe exam pie of the latter, under a pretence of obeying that of the former. Sedan Petri immundis pedtbus ussirpantes, sed merilu cujndilalis in Judas tradiloris peslilenfem cathedram deci denies." Mow peculiarly applicable Ihi* was, will appear from Hie lenor of the Epistle, in which he accuses thjm of excessive avarice of which Judas is one of the most awlul in stances in holy writ. A similar mode of ex p'-ession occurs respecting St. Paul. Si huuc apos'oli retmetis in omnibus affectum, ejus quoque cuthedrce legitime nisidere noseatis." I f lhe Papal cnair be the one allndod to in the first instance, it must be the same in the other. A few other passages are introduced, in which St, Peter is mentioned, bu! without lhe lenst reference to the Church of Rome. The exam pie of St. Paul is more frequenl ly insisted upon by Gildas than that of the apostles; all of whom are introduced in this Epistle, with 110 other intent than thai of impressing upon the Clergy the nercssih of reforming their lives, and confirming to the precepls of the Gospel There is nothing said ibroughoiit the whole of it respecting the Bishops ot HOine, or any jurisdiction in ecclesiastial affairs. In IIw hist extract from Gildas occurs the word schism. upon which the author dwells as affordi ng a complete proof of his hypothesis: which howe ver is a most convincing proot of his own pre cipilaucy. Gildas exculpates the Clergy from the charge of schism. The auMior maintains lhat there was no schism in the British Church at that time, Peiagianism having becíI sup- pressed. and, consequently, that the schism here alluded to, was a repugnance to lhe church of Rome. Tins is a complee tinstance of in consistency,' for according to such a sun- position, the British Clergy who are expressly I said to be free from this charge, must have acknowledged the Pope's supremacy, in the time of Gildas. The Pelagian Heresy mosi undoubtedly is that alluded to, which had been suppressed in the early par! of his life Such untenableconjeclucesare the irrefragable arguments by which the author endeavours ] to undermine the auihority of Gildas, So far from proving lhe general tenor of the hislory or Epistle to favour the interests of liie See of lie has not been able to produce a single pass'ige without perverting Ihe sense, in which there appears the most far-fe:ched allusion to the Church of Rome, the Pope bis succcssors or decrees. The sense, it milst be confessed, is not always clear, and the al- lusions frequenl ly unintelligible but to attri hute the whole composition to motives of an unprincipled imposition, nothing can be more preposterous and inconsistent. Few probahly will deny, but that the copies of Gildas may be very incorrect, but no one, 1 am confident, will be persuaded by the author's arguments, if he ever peruses the works themselves, lo consider them as the production of a Roman Ecclesiastic, under the fictitious name of Gil- das, labouring to advance the Papal nower." The author's hypo) hesis depends solely upon his own bare assertions, and a vast deal of pains have been bestowed with a view of up- holding a favourite Theory. Bangor. J.
I CURIOUS PROPHECY. The following curious prophecy, in which a warm imagination may possibly see some allusion to the present times, is copied from a iittle book, entitled Calastrophi mundi, or Merlin Hevived, published in London, iu the year 1683. Anancieni prophecy of Sybella Tiburlinn, i found in the year 15^0, in the bowels of the mountain l'aurus, in Switzerland, after a great inundation ot waters, which broke down a part of that mountain, and left discovered in the ruins the following words, fairly engraveIl upon a large marbie stone, in very old Latin characters and style, which is in English thus: A Star shiili arise in Europe over the lber nians, towards the Great House of the North, whose beams shall unexpectedly enlightcn the whole world. This shall be in a most desired l ime, whet mortals, wearied with wars, shall unanimously desire pcaec.-They shall strive, indeed, by ocraiou of a long lasting interregnum, with varies studies, which shall obtain the reins of empire. But at last the oflspring of the ancient blood shall overcome, and profeed victoriously by force of arms, until resisted y 1 -1 by contrary fates. For about the same time, this Star set. another coeval light blaz nig wilh more ardent flames of war shall spread his empire even to lhecoasts of the An- tipodes. But first France shall submit her neck to Ins yoke, and Britany, suppliant in ships, shall stretch out to him her languishing hand but this bright beam before his time, shall, with the vast desire of men, abscond himself in the clouds of the gods. Who, being extinct, after direful and bloodv comets, and flashes of fire seen in the heavens, there shall remain nothing for the future, safe or healthy amongst men. The firmament of heaven shall be dissolved, and the planets be opposed in contrary courses. The spheres shall justle one amongst another, and the fixed stars move faster than the plan ets. The seas swell as high as the mountains, and nothing remain but night, destruction, ruin, damnation, and eternal misery I his ancient prophecy is recited by Corne- lius Gemma, in his treatise of Supernatural Apparitions, and taken not ice of by several oiher good authors, as particularly the in- comparably learned Tycho Brahe, 111 his dis- course on the new star that appeared aiitio 1572, who thus expresses his judgment of it:— 1* lhere were," sailli he. divers exposilions of Ibis propiiec\, at the time when it was first found out some interpreting it of Charles the Fifth, others drew Ih meaning of it to Philip King of Spain, and some thought the King of France was meant thereby htlt I think thai il doth rather pomt out those lberi, who inhabit northward, tow ard Muscovia. So that this oracle of Sybilla Tiburti: a did not denote the Spaniards, but those Iberians which are neai unto the Muscovites, especially when she useth these wot-ds Qttprii lbei-os ad Magrtam Splentrioni Domum. Over the I fieri, towards the great house of Ihe North and truly Muscovia, Scythia, and Tarlaria, do make a great part of Europe, so that it may well he called the great bouse of the North; and therefore, since this unusual star did cast its perpendicular beams and influences on the country of Muscovia, it is not lo be doubted hot that this star, together with th;it tract of land, doth agree with the Sybilline Oracle." 18 Anecdote.—Eccentricity is frequently the object of ridicule, hot rarely of profit « as was the instance of Mr. Morrisco, aw emi- lIent weaver 111 London, and a mall of vast possessions resident iu Spital-fields, who had a Dili drawn upon him trom abroad of 80,000'. which was held by an Amhassadol; at our Court for acceptance. VVheii I lie,) ld gentleman made- his appearance, the messenger wag appalled at his figure, which exhibited penury personi- fied ho tnerelore hurried back lo the Ambas- sador, full of doubts and fears whether it could be possible siicb a mall should be capable of raising over 80.000/. The representative ofSo- vereignty, terrified at the ide 1 ot his probable loss resohed to satisfy hllllself hYIJers uat inspection "Iiich he had 110 sooner done, than Morrisco divined his thoughts, and to. east ttieiii, and to turn his ooubts to present profit, he offered ft) pay lhe bill immediately tor a valuable consideration the offer was gladly accepted, and viorrisco fairly pocket- ed 40001 the produce of his shabby habili- ments. mecdote of Lucien Bonaparte.fol- lowing anecdote of LUCien Hot aoarte, now residing near Worcester, (ksencs to lie e- nerally known. When the Due D'Lngluen was seized, Lucien, who knew Napoleon'* intentions, felt !o I)reveiii it, -,in(I repaired to the Tliuiiienes He remonstrated against a deed which would shock the moral' feeling of mankind. and stamp eternal disgrace on the name of Bonaparte. He used everv argument which his ingenuity could devise*; but Napoleon remained inflexible, and he waa obliged to retire without effeciing his purpose. As a last resource, Lucien went to his mother, roused tier feelings against the atrocious deed, and urged her to employ her whole art of per- suasion to avert it. The lady without delay hastened to Ihe palace, and, presenting her- self before her son, fell down on one knee. She conjured him, by nis regard for his fami- ly, to save file life of the Dnke she also con- jured bin; by the honour--of tlie French nation, and by his own glory, to grant her request; but he respectfully raised her up. and told her that lie could not grant her request, be- cause reasons of stale which she could not comprehend, prescribed bis conduct. Lucien when lie le aned the unfavourable issue of his mother's application, lfew again to the Thuil- leries, rushed into the presence of his brother, and, upbraiding him in severe language, Na. poleon became equally incensed—Lucien seiz, cd him hy the collar; but, a general in wait- ing separated them.
