As the car was passing the Deanery, the Peers who supported the canopy were forced close to the platform. To those who had the advantage of being near the procession, the sight was particularly imposing; but, by the multitude, a very imperfect view was obtained. The Duke of Wellington bore the Sword of State, and on his left was a Nobleman bearing the Cap of Maintenance. His Majesty and Prince George of Cumberland followed. The Duke of Sussex and the Duke of Cumberland walked together. Flambeaux were distributed amongst the soldiery, which threw a gloomy splendour over the mournful scene.

After the procession had been moving about twenty minutes, during which time the late King's private band of musicians played the "Dead March of Saul," and other solemn music, with the most admirable effect, a rocket was discharged, for the purpose, as we understood, of conveying intelligence to the Artillery stationed in the Long Walk, that the royal coffin was in motion.

The procession moved in the following order: Trumpets and Kettle Drums, and Drums and Fifes of the Foot Guards.

We cannot conclude this part of our undertaking without presenting our readers with the following ingenious and appropriate Eulogium on Heraldry, extracted from the "Londonensis," a work of distinguished mèrit, which, in the course of the present arduous compilation, we have sometimes advantageously consulted.

[ocr errors]

Heraldry, as clearly appears by the foregoing pages, is the constant and faithful companion of man through the different periods of his life. At his birth, she ushers him into the world by the real and appropriate title he ought to bear; in his youth, she amuses and instructs his mind by the display of her scientific rules and significant euluminures; when of age, she teaches him how to erect and decorate his family-mansion, what shields of arms should swell in bold relievo over the portals of his castle, or adorn in historical array the frieze and cornices of his halls. Her classical pencil transfers the splendid honours of her pallet to the pannels of his carriage; enlivens with her seven-fold tinctures the liveries of his attendants, and embroiders his mantle with hereditary armories, which characterise and honourably distinguish him through public and private life. Heraldry has directed him in what rank to seek for his lovely consort, the fair partner of every social enjoyment: the pedigree of his ancestors is again unfolded to his view; and heraldry, with unerring hand, points out the names which courtesy or family distinctions have selected for bis children. If the sound of the trumpet call him from these domestic comforts, to nobler employments in defence of his country, the genius of heraldry stands by his side, holding as a mirror his trusty buckler, which she has so curiously wrought with the achievements of his ancestors, that we may say of him, as Virgil does of his hero, in a different view, "Avorum attollens humero famamque et fata suorum.” So also, when his earthly career is run, and the tomb of his ancestors opens its storied valves, to receive the remains of one whose life was gloriously spent in the service of his country; who so highly merited the affection of his relations, and the regard of his friends; heraldry is still at hand, endeavouring to console the mourners for the loss they have sustained, by amusing the eye with armorial pageantry, calculated to animate and raise the drooping heart from grief. The family banners that proudly float around the hearse, or that wave in solemn procession through the streets, amid the admiring crowd; the sable vehicle, and the family escutcheons, the trappings of the horses, and the numerous shields which ornament the gothic pile where the body is to be deposited; in one word, the whole of the pomp is marshalled by the hands of heraldry, who, to defeat as much as possible the combined efforts of time and of death, officially consigns his name to her sacred records, as the last tribute she can pay to the memory of her friend."
