Though curious pottery and porcelain, lent by Henry the article is called “No. III.," it is really the Willett, Esq., who has, as he says in the preface fourth, as articles on electoral facts had appeared to a short catalogue, made the collection “to illusin the Nineteenth Century for November, 1878, trate the principle, or rather in development of September, 1887, ard December, 1889. In fact, the notion, that the history of a country may be the present article contains references to each of traced on its homely pottery." I do not propose its predecessors. It is said on p. 330 that “in to give a full list of this pottery, but only to menOctober, 1887, in the pages of this Review, it was tion some of the most peculiar or amusing.

[ocr errors]

Some of the things earliest in date are among the Delft ware; a small-necked round flask inscribed Sack, 1650; a larger-sized one, Claret, 1651 ; another 1634; and the collection is brought up to the last few years with a plate of the Queen's Jubilee (1887), a portrait of General Gordon on a jug, clay figures of the Oscar Wilde School, “greeneryyallery, Grosvenor Gallery” young man with sunflowers in his hand, and other men and women en suite—as Mrs. Poyser would say, “I am not denying that women are foolish, they are made to match the men”; and there are also other figures representing (would you be surprised to hear?) the Tichborne trial of 1874. There is the boy, R. C. Tichborne, before leaving England; a very fat man, the Claimant; the Dowager Lady Tichborne; the Solicitor-General, &c. Some American history is shown in the following. A blue and white plate inscribed,— America Independent July 4th 1776. Below is a sketch of a boat landing people, who have come off a three-master seen in the distance; on a rock in the foreground are the names, Carver, Bradford Winslow, Brewster & Standish. Round the edge is “The landing of the Fathers at Plymouth, Dec. 22, 1620,” below is,Washington Born, 1732. Died, 1799. On a large jug is a design headed “The memory of Washington, and the Proscribed Patriots of America”; below is a weeping willow and Washington's grave. In the centre are two medallions with portraits, “S.A.” and “J.B.”; below again is a bee-hive and cornucopia full of flowers, signifying industry and plenty, with this inscription :Liberty, Virtue, Peace, Justice and Equity to all Mankind. Columbia's sons inspired by Freedom's flame Live in the annals of immortal fame. To turn to the “moral Washington of Africa,” as Byron calls him, we find a figure of Wilberforce, surrounded with plates, jugs, &c., on which are pictures and sayings referring to slavery. A jug bears on one side a sketch of a negro in chains on the seashore, watching a ship receding in the distance; the inscription is, “Am I not a man and a brother ?” On the reverse side is, ‘The Negro's Complaint’:— Fleecy locks and black complexions, Cannot forfeit Nature's claim. Skins may differ, but affection Dwells in white and black the same. Slaves of gold, whose sordid dealings Tarnish all your boasted powers, Prove that you have human feelings, Ere you boldly question ours.

One mug has a picture of a boat from which an Englishman casts a rope to a negro just escaped from a slaver. Three figures have reference to “Uncle Tom's Cabin'; Mrs. Beecher Stowe, with the volume in her hands; St. Clair; and Uncle Tom with Evangeline. Small porcelain medals show, in black, a negro kneeling with hands upraised ; and one jug is inscribed with the words, “Remember them that are in bonds.” Lastly, there is a negro figure, kneeling on one knee, with hands upraised, “Bless God, thank Briton, me no slave.” To many people the most interesting part of the collection is the political. Some of the china bears names or allusions to events which are still famous in history; some of the rest, names which were causes of excitement, and even riots, in their time, but which now bring no special ideas to the mind, only a medley of long-forgotten elections and ephemeral triumphs, who only exist now in the poems or parodies of their day, e.g.:— Fielden, or Finn, in a minute or two Some disorderly thing will do. Praed. Sir Francis Burdett's name often appears. On one jug is inscribed:— Sir Francis Burdett Bart, M.P. Committed to the Tower 6. April, 1810. By the House of Commons, for firmly and disinterestedly asserting the legal rights of the British People. There is also a small china ornament of him in a black hat and blue coat, riding a bay horse; between long ears of corn below the horse is:— S+ F Burdett Britain's Friend. His name further appears with those of Grey, Brougham, Russell, Albury, and Norfolk, on a scroll in the centre of a large bowl; a ribbon above bears the words: “We are for our King and the People. The Bill, the whole Bill, and nothing but the Bill.” Round the sides of the bowl are alternate pictures of the king dissolving Parliament and of a figure holding the light of truth on a pedestal, inscribed with:— Reform Disenfranchise Stone Walls & Parks. Give members to the People King and Constitution. Apropos to Sir F. Burdett and the excitement of that time, I will here note one of the many parodies of Gray's ‘Elegy, entitled, “An Elegy
