MINOR CORRESPONDENCE.

We are happy to announce that our report of the death of Commissioner Briggs (see vol. c. ii. p. 644) is not correct; an account of that excellent officer being in good health in February last, having since arrived.

Mr. JAMES TOWNLEY says, "It is a singular fact, that, although SALOMON NEGRI, a learned native of Damascus, is stated by Bishop Marsh and Le Long, as well as by Freylinghausen, the editor of a Latin memoir of him, to have been the editor of the Arabic New Testament, published by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge' early in the last century, there is not, at least so far as I know, any biographical account of him in our own language.

shall therefore be obliged to any of your Correspondents who will give a detail of his proceedings in England; and as it appears, from the Memoria Negriana' of Freylinghausen, that he died in England in 1728 or 1729, it would afford additional gratification if it could be stated where he was buried, and whether any monument be erected to his memory."

CLERICUS (of Maidstone) observes, "The satisfaction I have received on the perusal of two original letters from the pen of the celebrated Bp. Berkeley, in your last number, induces me to express a hope that your Correspondent A. P. who contributed them, may be inclined, if it be in his power, to furnish your readers with a few more. It may also be no small gratification to A. P. and the other admirers of that eminently great and good prelate, to know that the original portrait of him, painted by John Smibert the artist, to whom one of the above letters is addressed, is taken care of in my possession, and that therein the benignity of the Bishop is strikingly pourtrayed in every feature."

A CORRESPONDENT states, that "Wells Leigh near Wells (noticed in vol. c. ii. 614), may be the place from whence the ancient family of De Welesley, Welseley, Wellesley, or Wesley, for so it has been variously written, derives its name; but the Duke of Wellington is Baron Douro of Wellesley, not Wells Leigh, and the Marquess Wellesley sits as Baron Wellesley of Wellesley, not Wells Leigh, as Mr. Cassan supposes, erroneously. The origin of Wesley, the celebrated preacher, is unknown beyond a descent or two; but the Wesleys or Wellesleys of Ireland, have an authenticated pedigree as far back as 1172, when the first ancestor came to Ireland from Somersetshire as Standard-bearer to King Henry II. and had large grants of land in Meath and Kildare. William de Wellesley was summoned as a Baron of the Realm in 1339; the name was in after times written Wesley, an abbreviation of Wellesley, until the present Marquess Wellesley and his brothers, re-assumed the ancient name, just as the Seymours now style themselves St. Maurs," &c.

D. remarks, "The materials from which Lord Orford compiled his interesting account of English Painters, Engravers, and other Artists, are still preserved in the library at Strawberry-hill, among a great many other papers likewise in the handwriting of, or collected by Mr. Vertue. They are probably of no use to the present noble owner, and it would be rendering an essential service to literature, could he be prevailed on to transfer them to the British Museum. The same remark would apply to that very interesting volume of old poetry aud metrical romances, formerly belonging to Bishop Percy, most of the contents of which are specified in his elegant work the Reliques of Ancient Poetry.'

H. says, that the fact of the Duchess of Burgundy visiting England in 19 Edw. IV. (see p. 156) is thus noticed in Arnold's Chronicle, 4to. 1811, p. xxxvii: "This yere the Kingis suster Duches of Burgō, com into England, to see her brodyr."

Mr. JOHN HENRY CLIVE would feel obliged if the gentlemen who furnished the curious particulars of the family of Copinger, at pp. 12, 110, 112, can give him any account of Susannah the daughter of Henry Copinger, who married perhaps about 1580 Sir George Clive, and afterwards John Poole, of Poole in Cheshire. She was a widow about 41 Eliz., as appears by an inquisition taken in that year. She called one of her sons Ambrose, a name quite new in the Clive family, but familiar in that of Copinger of Buxhall. Sir George's arms were: Argent, on a fess, between three wolves' (or griffin's) heads erased Sable, three mullets. Crest, a griffin.

A CORRESPONDENT states, that there is in the possession of Mrs. Deerman of Barnet, a portrait of King Charles the First, painted on glass. The King is habited in a scarlet dress fitting close to the body, ornamented with jewelled clasps, the sleeves loose, with a white underdress, a falling band, and on his head a kind of embroidered white cap. The hands are slightly raised up. Above, from a dark cloud, is a hand holding a crown, from which issues a stream of scarlet or bloody rays, and forms a cloud of blood around, or rather behind the head. From the worm-eaten and decayed state of the frame, it has the appearance of being in its original setting.

P. 93. Mr. Canning's ancestors were seated at Foxcote, in the male line, since the reign of Henry VI. and in the female line through the Le Marshalls, since the time of Edward I. There is a pedigree of the Cannings at Foxcote, drawn up in 1622, by Sir William Segar. George Canning of Garvagh, co. Londonderry, temp. Q. Eliz. ancestor of Lord Garvagh, and of the late Premier, was the eighth son (not fourth, as stated in the Peerages) of Richard Canning of Foxcote.

EXCAVATIONS FOR THE CITY APPROACHES TO LONDON BRIDGE..
March 25.

small and homely thing, and the ground thereabout a filthy plot, being used by the butchers of Eastcheap as a laystall. W. de Burgo in 1317 gave two messuages in Candlewick-street to this Church. John Lovekin, mayor of London, rebuilt it, and was buried with his lady in the choir, under a fair tomb, bearing their recumbent images in alabaster. The bold Sir William Walworth, who made such short work with the chief of the radicals of his day, sometime à servant of the said Lovekin, (for when in England has sober worth and honesty been incapable of rising to wealth and honour?) rebuilt the choir, added side chapels, and founded a college for a master and nine priests. Sir William dying in 1385, was buried in the chapel north of the choir.* Stow says his monument was defaced temp.

Mr. URBAN, THE very deep excavations which are now making for purposes connected with forming the northern approaches of the New London Bridge, between 30 and 40 feet below the surface of the ground on which the city now stands, must put the antiquary upon the alert. Such an opportunity, perhaps, has never before presented itself of obtaining a section of the factitious surface of the streets of modern London and its substratum, or of demonstrating some facts connected with the foundation of the city. But to speak in the first place of the immediate scene of these excavations, which have now approached so near as almost to undermine the south wall of the little church of St. Michael, Crooked-lane, the successor of a very ancient structure, which Stow says at first was a

* I was present at that portion of the last service which took place in this sacred edifice, and as this may be said to have completed its history, I may be allowed to put the particulars on record. During last week the walls of the city exhibited the following placard, "St. Michael's Church, Crooked-lane, being about to be pulled down for the approaches of the new London Bridge, divine service for the last time will take place on Sunday morning next, 20 March, 1831, when a Sermon will be preached by the Rector, the Rev. W. W. Dakins, F.S.A. Chaplain to his Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester, for the benefit of one hundred poor children of the Charity-schools of Bridge, Candlewick, and Dowgate Wards, Divine service to begin at 11 o'clock." While the Curate, on the occasion above announced, was reading the second lesson, a piece of plaister fell from over the circular east window, and descended near Dr. Dakins, who was seated within the Communion rails; this occasioned some alarm in the congregation, but they were tranquillized by an address from the pulpit by Dr. Dakins, it being generally thought that some idle person had thrown a fragment of rubbish through the window, in which there appeared a broken pane. Further to compose the assembly, the ninety-third psalm was given out, during the singing of which a shower of loosened plaister descended over the Communion-table, the Rector hastily retired from his seat, the major part of the congregation rushed out in consternation, the communion plate was tremblingly removed from the apparently dangerous place by one of the attendants, and that portion of the assembly who had the presence of mind to observe no alteration in the perpendicular of the walls, or fissures in the ceiling, retired through the west door, giving their contribution towards the charity, which by this unfortunate occurrence must have fallen very short of expectation. The last words which were chanted on this venerable consecrated site, were not inexpressive of the stability of the Church uni. versal under all worldly mutations.

"With glory clad! with strength arrayed,
The Lord that o'er all nature reigns,
The world's foundations strongly laid,
And the vast fabric still sustains.
