For MAY, 1813.

May 15.

In the present unhappy sntal health,

there is an awkwardness, which strikes most hearers, in continuing some of the prayers unaltered. The following slight change, if sanctioned by the Heads of the Church, would remove the chief part of the objection, and prevent an extension of the Service, which is not only unnecessary, but in some respects absurd.

Let the present Occasional Prayer for the King, followed by that for the Prince Regent, be read in the Morning and Evening Service, instead of the usual prayer beginning "O Lord our Heavenly Father, high and mighty," &c.; and on Sundays, instead of the First Collect in the Com

66

munion Service, beginning, "Almighty God, whose kingdom is everlasting," or, Almighty and everlasting God" omitting the respective Prayers in the Liturgy till further order. As the Communion Service is now always read on Sunday mornings, there is no occasion, I conceive, to introduce the Occasional Prayers on that day in the former part of the Service, nor on Saints-days. On common Litany-days, the two prayers may precede the Litany, as they do at present. CLERICUS.

Mr. URBAN,

May 16. SEE in the papers that the Emperor Alexander, on entering Lyck, a town in Prussia, had an interview. with the venerable Governor of the town, who addressed his Majesty in the following terms: "For you, most gracious Lord, come to us, not to destroy, but to make us happy ; not to enthral, but to liberate; not to. paralize, but to invigorate." Upon which the Emperor is related to have seized the old Clergyman's hand with

great emotion, and to have said, "I come as the most sincere friend to your King and Country." Now, Sir, if there be any truth in this relation,. as I have little doubt from internal

evidence that there is, it is a statement which deserves to be preserved

in some memorial beyond the com

mon prints of the day, as it exhibits proofs of real feeling and greatness of pind in one of those distinguished personages, of whose character, we have but few opportunities of forming an accurate judgment, and from whose claims to respect there has been some disposition to detract. And it furnishes a very important lesson to the world; for is it possible to reflect that, during the many years that the Emperor of France has possessed an unbounded plenitude of power, not a single instance of consideration for the miseries which he has inflicted upon mankind has appeared; and not to feel indignation against him? We cannot but think it natural to approve; we cannot but conspire with enthusiasm in the spirit of those who hail with exultation the generous deliverer who relieves them from such oppression, and who, having with a magnanimous and determined courage resisted the invasion of his own country, proceeds to aid the exertions of other people. Nor can we look on the effects of tyranny on every scene of public and domestic life, and not bear a warm and animated testimony of such expression of regard to the dictates of true glory. Yours, &c.

A BRITON.
