MONTHLY RÉVIEW,

For J U L Y, 1786.

Art. I. The Hiftory of Wales. With an Appendix. By the Rev:

William Warrington, Chaplain to the Earl of Besborough. 4to. il. is. Boards. Johnson. 1786. . . THE most brilliant pages of history are, unquestionably,

1 those which record the ftruggles of independence againft oppreffion; and these ftruggles have commonly been exerted with the greateft vigour and success in the earlier ftages of civilization. It is wbile the principles of a free people remain uncorrupted by avarice, and their manners not enervated by luxury, that the social passions have full scope, and a masculine virtue is produced, which gives birth to glorious deeds, and furnithes the noblest themes for the historic mufe. The detail of court intrigues, and military mancuvres, in a more refined state of society, may be very useful to the Statesman and the General, and may ferve to amuse the ordinary reader; but the narrative of the great ex. ploits of heroes, who have sacrificed every private intereft to the Public weal, warms the heart with exalted sentiments, and fofters all the virtues of the man and the citizen. The world has doubtless owed much of that generous ardour with which the beft friends of mankind have devoted themselves to the sera vice of their country, to the early impreffions which they had received from the Grecian and Roman story. It is for this reason devoutly to be wilhed, that men may never arrive at such a degree of false refinement, as to become incapable of rclishing the narrative of heroic deeds in defence of liberty. By the honeft and generous such tales, whatever be the scene of adion, will be read with delight.

" Wherever nature, though in narrow space,
Fosters, by freedom's aid, a liberal race;
Secs Virtue fave them from Oppression's den,
And cries with exultation, "These are men;"
Though in Bæotia or Batavia born,

Their.deeds the story of the world adorn." HAYLIT. • The history of Wales is a narrative of this kind. It exhibits a people, who for several ages defended the rights of nature in the bosom of their native mountains. The spectacle is so interefting, that it is surprising it should so long have lain, in a great VOL, LXXV.

measure, obscured. Much labour bas been employed upon the antiquities of Wales; but, till this time, the interesting facts which form the history of the ancient Britons, except so far as they have made a part of the English history, have lain dormant in Welsh manuscripts, or been barely compiled, in a work seldom read, the Chronicle of the Monk Carodoc of Llancarvon.

Mr. Warrington has the merit of being the firft writer, who has attempted to cloath the history of Wales in an agreeable dress; and we have pleasure in adding, that, in our judgment, the undertaking is very successfully executed. The materials of this history, which the Author has judiciously authenticated by numerous references, appear to have been collected with much industry. They are arranged, if not with a scrupulous regard to chronological order, with a more useful attention to that method which arises from the connection of causes with their effects. Valuable observations are occasionally interspersed : and the whole is written in a style, which is neither, on the one hand, tedious, through a careless and Novenly prolixity, nor, on the other, disgusting by a uniform display, of ornament. The Author designedly avoids a minute inquiry into the antiquities of the country, as not properly falling within the province of the historian; but instead of this, he has given, what will be much more generally acceptable, an agreeable and well-written narrative of historical facis. • A few specimens must be added, to enable our Readers to form fome judgment of the merit of this work.

Afier a concise but perspicuous and entertaining summary of the British history, before the Britons were driven into Wales, &c. the Author relates at large the wars between the Saxons and Well, in the course of which relation, he records the fol.' lowing example of superstitious weakness in the conduct of Cad. walader :

"" After reliding some time in the court of Bretaigne, Cadwalader prepared to return into Wales; having heard that the famine and peftilence had ceased, and that the Saxons, with increasing power, were endeavouring to extend their conquests *. With this view, he collected an army composed of his own subjects and his allies the Bretons, with a suitable Aeet to transport them across the channel +. In such a situation, a magnanimous prince would either have rescued bis country from its danger, or would have buried himself in its ruins. But just at the time that Cadwalader was going to embark, he was warned in a vision, which he fancied to be a sudden impulse from heaven, which directed him to lay aside the cares of the world, and go immediately to Rome, to receive holy orders from the hands
