Hoj false pride pufted him Up w ith feelings of being better than the poorest o f .our la­ bouring class of citizens, , b e c a u se bis,bu­ siness necessarily led b iro fu m ake a more showy.appearance ; b u t on i h e contrary the rich aud the poor were looked upon alike .by hims atiiJ all classes* treated with a Civility djafc'tna.rbed the real gentleman.

The fatigues and pleasures of the day were ftoftclfidedby ai loug stroll after, diftner,'thtbUgh the streets of thi? ancient town, and' up the ■tiaoks of tlie Skeli, whence a rich sUns'et view of Stud- ley Park Was obtained. In a solitary part ofour rambles, leading through fields arid pastures stud­ ded with copses, we, met two ladies saunterifig arm in arm, with an open letlep in their haads, which doubtless related to some love afiilip, ttnd which; they, had retired to thiri’bmantickspot to con over together . One of them was readiiW from her album, an impassioned, extract, from the Pleasures of Hope, in a voice t,0o dudabte riot lo be heard,' as we pnssedhy and ;left Iheift to their evening meditations. '. . . On the morning of ttie 6th, ■we left Ripon at an early hour,.iq. a. post chaise, ibere being io stage coach aOross the country in this dircctiob, which occasioned us some tcouttle and an addi- . tional expense.,^ The uriiforiri price of an English pott chaise is. fifteen pence sterlihg per' mile, ex­ clusive of three pence per milato: the postillion, arid the tolls. Oh tbfsf(?uto,^ the landlords, stage after stage, made aft Unsticcos?ful attemht to sub­ ject us to the double expence t)t M r hbr’ses ' iiV- stead oflwri.'.' IfWas difficult itf some iristances to resist their importunities ; and ofte or two of them at first threatened not to fake us on at all,, undertbe plea that the roadishad, requiring four horses. Their entreaties Were, however, eluded, and experience Utlifoirily .proVed the falsity of thOir'repr'eseiitation?.

As there Were net inany iuterestiilg objects a- lphg .the w.ny to retard our progress, WO rode from Ripon to Sedbergh, iri \yestmorelaftd, a, distanee“of six'ty'imiles in one day.
