them hastened into the neighbouringstreets

colleagues. . 0. Barrot addressed the
deputation as follows:

Queen .Eliz'dbelA ofEnglaad.-It is wel
knaown, that Queen Elizabeth of England,
who was one of the greatest Sovereigns
which that country ever had,..was neverK
married, but throughont a long life, be?
longed to thae. honorable class ofol maids.
Not withstandizg this, she wvas by-no means,
insensible to tihe flatteries and aztentions of
the sterner sex, and fro;m-.the -following
anecdote, wvhich we flid in the History of
the Church of England, by the Rev. Ed
ward Rutlege, it seems, that when ad.
vatnce'l itn life, she did not like to be called
old. "Ia thle course of her reign, died
Bishop Rudde, of whom a-sinigular ane
dote is told. Having towards the close of
Elizabeth's roign preached a sermon nor -
vouzs and unadorned before her, Whiagift
assured him, he gave so much satisfaction,
as to merit the reversion of the-Metropolt
tana Chair. "That is strange"'said he " for
my discoorso had notimueb 1o atlract the
fancy." "Her M1ajesty" repliell Whiagift
"was iln her earlier days, fond of wit and
eloquence, but she now loves pilain matter,
which touches the heart." Relying ont
this, he preachted another sermon before
hier. soon after oan the duties of old age;
"when the grinders are few, and they that~*~
look out of the witndows are darkened"
1t is hardly necessary to add, that he heard
no mnore of his advancement." So wrttes
the grave historian, and the fact which he
relates is of great importance. Let no un
gallant person, either priest or layman2
presumtte to remnind a respectable old matd
of her age. For truly, she knows it, and
why insult her by telling her? Onar devil
whispers, that it woul be prudent also not
to talk of age, before a poor old hachelor.
If he hen anman of spirit, he may chastise';
yalt for youur insolene.
