A LINK WITH THE PAST. It is somewhat startling to learn from the "Bath Herald" that the clergyman who offici- ated at the funeral of the authoress of "Evelina" is living to-day. It has been generally supposed that the ceremony was performed by her nephew, the Rev. Charles Parr Burney, and it was in- tended that should be so, but, for some reason he was unable to attend, and in his absence, there officiated the Rev. Charles Burney, who is the present nonagenarian. Archdeacon, of King- ston-on-Tha-mes. When we consider that Maine. D'Arblay died in January, 1840, that there should be now living a relative who read the funeral service over her remains is remarkable. Franceu Burney, it may be recalled, was born in 1752.
