Art. I. Some Account of the Public Life, and a Selection from the Unpublished Writings, of the Earl of Macartney. The Latter consisting of Extracts from an Account of the Russian Empire ; a Sketch of the Political History of Ireland; and a Journal of an Embassy from the King of Great Britain to the Emperor of China.

1807. THE great crowd of what are called public men, deserve

no individual description or memorial. After having examined a few specimens, it is easy to guess the qualities of the rest. Compound an ordinary portion of talent with a rather extra quantity of cunning, and just as much selfishness as you please, existing in the lowest form of ambition or avarice, or both, and you have the substance of what is most commonly called a public man; a very cheap composition, because it can be made up without the expense of a drachm for that rare and costly ingredient, public spirit. If there are persons, in the more retired walks of life, so simple as to regret that they can. not have the privilege of intimately observing the characters of the occupants of power and office, it might allay their discontented curiosity to be assured, that they may see every where around them exact models, on a smaller scale, of what they are precluded from inspecting. They may find, in the most subordinate ranks of society, plenty of the very same genus of personages, only with narrower scope for acting out their dispositions, and somewhat less plausibility of manners. If the high and imposing titles, by which the upper part of the genus have agreed to call one another, have impressed a certain degree of awe on the minds of our supposed inquisitive recluses, it will perhaps be a little of the nature of a discovery and a surprise to them to find, that the schemes, and jealousies, and rivalries, and quarrels, that the intriguing, the cheating, the pettifogging, and the speechifying, of a country village,
