Anion'; lilernrv men, some have been eccentric in lln-ir method of coiiipoMiv' anil s'udvin. l)e.s Cartes used lo lie in bed, very fre quently, for twelve or fourteen hours in the day, with the curtains drawn. Thompson sometimes kpenl the whole day in bed. lliiiisM-uu and Tope procured some of their best thoughts in bed. M zer.ii, the historian, always composed by candle light. Much of this is folly. Nature has con stituted human beings so similarly, that what is consistent with common sense, and suitable lor one man, would be found adapt ed for ail, if they would but accustom themselves to it. Eccentricities are nol only productive of no advantages, hut thev are ii equently Ihe occasion of awkward ness and unpleasantness. Pascal, Milton, Sin:rnr:r.r, Tiicaxus, ami Ni.wton. Pascal subjected his iellers lo the inspection of Ihe members of his college, and every advantageous alteration that was suggested was introduced. This method occasions much correctness, hut il destroys Ihe originality of the author's thoughts and style. Sometimes Milton woulJ dictate a cer- alin number of lines, and Ihen reduce them to one halt ih- quantity. Sheffield, link.? ol Buckingham, wrote an essay tin satire, which was altered and amended so nun Ii, that at last, like Ihe stocking of Aristotle, it became a new thing. The commencement of the History of Thuanus is said to have cost the author an immense deal ol labor. , Sir Isaac Newton informex) Bishop Pearce that he had written his Chronology 'of Ancient Kingdoms sixteen timet.

T'ie Qiiintus Curtis of Vanrelas occupi ed him thirty years; generally every peri od was translated in the margin five or six several ways. Chapelnin and Conrart. who look Ihe pains to review Ibis wmk critically, were many limes perplexed in the choice of passages; they ireneral'v liked best that which had been first com posed. Uossl'KT.

Hai.xac. IJalac, the first writer in French prose who ;rave majesty and har mony to a period, it is safe, did not gnul-re to bestow a week on a pae, and was nev er rati.-fied with his first thoughts. MalkhraNi hi:, I lor.nr.sj Thomas, and Diti-o.v. Some profound thinkers con I J not pursue the operalions of their mind in the distraction of lij;bt ami noise. Male branche, llobbes, Thomas, and others closed their curtains to concentrate their thouohts, as Milton says of the mind, '-in the spa cious circuits of her musing." A secluded and naked apartment, with nothing but a desk, a chair, and a yinjle .sheet of paper, was for filly yeais Ihe study of ljufi'.m ; the single ornament was a iirint of Newton placed before bis eyes: nolhincr broke into the unity of bis reveries. l-i:.i:r.oN and (.iihio.n. ullaire I. -lis us of Fenelon's Telenuchus. that the amiable , author composetl it in bis rt-lireineut in the short period of three months.
