Mr. DEWAR, Head Inspector.

Mr. WORSLEY, District Inspector. Thus the character of the English esquires of the seventeenth century was compounded of two elements which we are not accustomed to find united. His ignorance and uncouthness, his low tastes and gross phrases, would, in our time, be considered as indicating a nature and a breeding thoroughly plebeian. Yet he was essentially a patrician, and had, in large measure, both the virtues and the vices which flourish among men set from their birth in high places, and accustomed to authority, to observance, and to self-respect. It is not easy for a generation which is accustomed to find chivalrous sentiments only in company with liberal studies and polished manners to image to itself a man with the deportment, the vocabulary, and the accent of a carter, yet punctilious on matters of genealogy and precedence, and yet ready to risk his life rather than see a stain cast on the honour of his house. It is only, however, by thus joining together things seldom or never found together in our own experience, that we can form a just idea of that rustic aristocracy which constituted the main strength of the armies of Charles I., and which long supported with strange fidelity the interest of his descendants. The gross, uneducated, untravelled country gentleman was commonly a Tory; but though devotedly attached to hereditary monarchy, he had no partiality for courtiers and ministers.

Dr. BEATTY, District Inspector.
Scarce could they hear or see their foes

Until at weapon point they close.
They close in clouds of smoke and dust,
With sword-sway and with lance's thrust;

And such a yell was there
Of sudden and portentous birth,
As if men fought upon the earth
And fiends in upper air;
O life and death were in the shout,
Recoil and rally, charge and rout,

And triumph and despair.
Long looked the anxious squires; their eye

Could in the darkness nought descry.
