and able, are "Dialogues, Moral and Political," " Letters
on Chivalry," (1762,) "Commentary on Horace's Ars
Poetica," " Lectures on the Prophecies," and a " Life of
Warburton," (1794.) "Hurd has perhaps," says Hal-
lam, "the merit of being the first who, in this country,
aimed at philosophical criticism : he had great ingenuity,
a good deal of reading, and a facility in applying it ; but



he did not feel very deeply, was somewhat of a coxcomb,
and assumes a dogmatic arrogance which offends the
reader." (" Introduction to the Literature of Europe. 1 *)
Died in 1808.

then ambassador at Paris, with whom he returned
to England in 1792. Having attracted the favourable
notice of Pitt, he was appointed in 1795 under-secre-
tary in the department of war and the colonies, and the
next year was returned to Parliament for Morpeth. He
was secretary of the treasury from 1804 until the deitb
of Pitt, and again from 1807 until 1809, when, as a
friend of Canning, he resigned with him. In Parliament
he represented successively Harwich, Chichester, (18:2-

by his knowledge of finance and commerce, and by his
methodical and luminous reports. In 1823, under the
auspices of Canning, he became president of the board
of trade, treasurer of the navy, and a member of the
cabinet From the death of Canning (l82j) to 1829 he

differed from the Tory ministry. At'the opening of the
Liverpool and Manchester Railway he was killed by an

Huss, (JOHN,) [Ger. JOHANN Huss, yo'hin hooss ; Lat
JOHAN'NES Huss,] a celebrated reformer of the Church,
was born at Husinec, (or Hussinetz,) in Southern Bohe-
mia, in 1369. Being appointed in 1402 preacher at the
Bethlehem Chapel in Prague, he became a zealous advo-
cate of the doctrines of Wickliffe, whereby he incurred
the censure of the Catholic clergy. As rector of the Uni-
versity of Prague, he had the works of Wickliffe trans-
lated into Bohemian ; but they were soon after burned by
order of Archbishop Sbinko. In 1412 he denounced the
papal bull issued by John XXIII. against Ladislaus,
King of Naples, and with his coadjutor, Jerome of Prague,
condemned the sale of indulgences. He was excommu-
nicated the next year, upon which he wrote his work " On
the Church," exposing the abuses of popery. Cited
before the Council of Constance in 1414, and provided
with a pass by the emperor Sigismund, he was arrested
on his arrival, and, as he adhered firmly to his opinions,
he was burned by order of the treacherous emperor.

less suspicion of a treasonable conspiracy, was confined

Writings Complete," " Moses sine Principle," and other

contain the elements of natural philosophy as well as

eminent divines. Died in 1737.

Hutchiiison, (JOHN HELY,) an Irish statesman and
lawyer, born in 1715, resided in Dublin, and became
secretary of state. Died in 1794.

Hutchiiison, (JOHN HELY,) a British general, born
in 1757, was the second son of the preceding. He
entered the army in 1774. Having gained distinction in
the Irish rebellion, he was made major-general in 1796.
In 1800 he went to Egypt as second in command under
Sir Ralph Abercrombie. When the latter was killed, in
March, 1801, Hutchinson succeeded to the command,
and obliged the French army under Menou to capitulate
at Alexandria in the same year. He was rewarded for
these services by the title of Baron Hutchinson. In
1825, on the death of his brother, he inherited the title
of Earl of Donoughmore. Died in 1832.

Hutchinson, (LUCY,) an English authoress of great
merit, was the daughter of Sir Allan Apsley, lieutenant
of the Tower of London, in which Tower she was born
in 1620. She was married in 1638 to Colonel John
Hutchinson, noticed above, after having received a liberal
education. She shared the counsels and dangers of her
husband in the civil war, attended him in prison, and
wrote Memoirs of his life, (1806,) which are greatly
admired. " We have not often met with anything," says
Lord Jeffrey, " more interesting and curious than this
volume. ... It challenges our attention as containing an
accurate and luminous account of military and political
affairs from the hand of a woman, and as exhibiting the
most liberal and enlightened sentiments in the person
of a Puritan. The views which it opens into the char-
acter of the writer and the manners of the age will be to
many a still more powerful attraction."

Hutchinson, (RICHARD HELY,) Earl of Dor.ough-
inore, born in Dublin in 1756, was the eldest son of John
H. Hutchinson, noticed above. He served in the army
during the Irish rebellion of 1798, and in 1800 was raised
to the peerage, as Earl of Donoughmore. In 1805 he
obtained the rank of major-general. In Parliament he
advocated with zeal and constancy the claims of the
Catholics. He was created a peer of the United King-
dom in 1821. Died in 1825.

became Fellow of Saint John's College, Cambridge, in
1543. He left theological works, which were published
in 1842. Died in 1555.

Hutchinson, (THOMAS,) a royal governor of Massa-
chusetts, was born in Boston in 1711. He became a
judge of probate in 1752, and chief justice of Massachu-
setts in 1760. His course in relation to the Stamp Act
rendered him very unpopular. He succeeded Bernard
as governor in 1769, and pursued a policy which tended
to provoke a revolt in the colonies. When the tea was
brought to Boston in 1773, the inhabitants, in town-
meeting, resolved that it should not be landed, but be
returned to its owners. Hutchinson, however, refused to
grant the ships a pass. The result was the destruction
of the tea by citizens in the disguise of Indians. In 1 772,
Dr. Franklin, colonial agent in London, had sent over
to Massachusetts confidential letters written by Hut-
chinson to England, which showed that his whole policy
had been characterized by duplicity and evasion, that,
professing to be the friend of the colony, he had secretly
advised the sending of troops to Boston, and other
obnoxious measures. He retired to England in 1774.
Died near London in 1780. His principal works are a
" History of the Province of Massachusetts Bay from
1628 to 1749," (2 vols. 8vo, issued in 1764-67,) and a
" Collection of Original Papers relative to the History
of Massachusetts Bay," (1769.) The " North American



Review" calls his work " a mine of wealth to all future
historians and antiquaries." " It is written," says Kan-
croft, "with lively inquisitiveness and lawyer-like criti-
cism, though without a glimpse of the great truths which
were the mighty causes of the revolution he describes."

in 1488. He studied at Frankfort-on-the-Oder, and
afterwards at Pavia, in Italy. About 1520 he repaired
to Mentz, where he published a succession of severe
attacks on the Roman clergy, and soon after became
acquainted with Luther, whose cause he openly espoused.
Owing to the persecution he now encountered, he was
obliged to take refuge in Switzerland, where he died in
1523. He possessed rare talents, but lacked discretion
and morality. He was probably one of the authors of
the famous " Epistolae Obscurorum Virorum," consisting
of satires on the monks and the clergy, (1516.)
