an intimation as to the political condition that the next
ensuing election proved to be entirely without founda-
tion.

That historic impartiality which belongs to the biogra-
phy of public men forbids us wholly to pass over those
errors and foibles which disappointed so many of Mr.
Seward's friends ; but we gladly turn from the considera-
tion of such topics to the contemplation of his long life
of usefulness, and especially of his eminent services to
his country in her late hour of trial. After retiring from
political life, he made a tour around the world, (1870-71,)
and died at Auburn, October 10, 1872.

Among her novels are "Amy Herbert," (1844,) "Ger-
trude," (1847,) "Katherine Ashton," (1854,) "Ursula,"
(1858,) etc. She wrote also, for the young, histories of
Rome, Greece, France, and of the early Church, as well
as some educational and devotional works.

brated Greek skeptical philosopher and physician, whose
birthplace is unknown, flourished about 200 A.D. He

two works which have come down to us, name!y,"Against
the Mathematicians or Dogmatists," (" Adversus Mathe-
maticos,") and " Pyrrhonistic Sketches," (" Pyrrhon.-e
Hypotyposes.") These works are highly prized as docu-
ments for the history of philosophy. They contain all the
arguments and maxims of the ancient skeptics, and tend
to involve in doubt all the doctrines of science, religion,
and philosophy. The former work has been described
as "a perfect store-house of doubts regarding evr.cy
imaginable phasis of human knowledge." ("Encyclo-
paedia Britannica.")

Shaftesbury, shafs'ber-e, ( ANTHONY ASHLEY
COOPER,) Lord Ashley, and first EARL OF, an English
politician, famous for his talents, intrigues, and versa-
tility, was born at Wimborne Saint Giles, Dorsetshire,
on the 22d or 23d of July, 1621. He was a son of Sil
John Cooper, and a grandson of Sir Anthony Ashley,
from each of whom he inherited a large estate.

He was a member of the Short Parliament of 1640,
In the civil war he first supported the cause of the king,
but in 1643 he joined the popular party, and took Ware-
ham in 1644. He became a member of Parliament in
1653, after which he was appointed a member of Crom-
well's council of state. Between 1654 and 1660 he sat
in several Parliaments, was an opponent of Cromwell,
and very efficiently promoted the restoration. Charles
II. rewarded him in 1660 with the office of chancellor
of the exchequer, and raised him to 'the peerage, as
Baron Ashley, in 1661. Lord Ashley was a political
opponent of Lord Clarendon while the latter was prime
minister. He became in 1670 a member of the famous
and notorious Cabal ministry, whose domestic policy
was arbitrary, and whose foreign policy was basely sub-
servient to the will of Louis XIV. "Ashley, with a far
stronger head [than Buckingham], "says Macaulay, "and
with a far fiercer and more earnest ambition, had been
equally versatile; but Ashley's versatility was the effect
not of levity, but of selfishness. He had served and
betrayed a succession of governments ; but he had timed
all his treacheries so well that through all revolutions
his fortunes had been constantly rising." (" History
of England.") He was created Earl of Shaftesbury in
1672, and held the office of lord chancellor from No-
vember, 1672, till November, 1673. After the seals had
been taken from him, he went over to the opposition or
country party, and signalized his zeal against popery. A
majority of the Commons having opposed the measures
of the court, the king prorogued that House from time
to time. When it assembled in 1677, Shaftesbury as-
serted that it was dissolved. For this offence he was
confined in the Tower for more than a year This affair,
and his officious action in relation to the Popish Plot-



rendered him so popular that he was appointed president
of the new council formed in 1679. While he held this
high position, he procured the passage of the famous
Habeas Corpus act, of which he was the author. Having
been dismissed from the presidency of the council in
October, 1679, he presented the Duke of York to the
grand jury as a popish recusant. Suspected of conspir-
ing with the Duke of Monmouth, he was seized in July,
[68 1, and confined in the Tower on a charge of treason;
but the bill of indictment was ignored by the grand jury.
Dryden satirized him, under the name of " Achitophel,"
in his admirable poem of "Absalom and Achitophel."
It is said that Shaftesbury advised his party to revolt
openly against the court, but the other leaders refused
to follow this advice. He therefore left England in 1682,
and died at Amsterdam in June, 1683, leaving one son.

of Lord Shaftesbury," by B. MARTIN and DR. KIPPIS, new edition,

edited by W D. CHRISTIE.

Shaftesbury, (ANTHONY ASHLEY COOPFR,) seventh
EARL OF, an English philanthropist, the eldest son of
the sixth Earl, was born in 1801. He was styled LORD
ASHLEY in his youth. He graduated at Oxford, as first
class in classics, in 1822, and entered Parliament in 18:6.
He procured the passage of the " Ten Hours' Bill," which
requires that children in factories shall not work more
than ten hours in a day. He distinguished himself as
an advocate of the "Evangelical party" of the Anglican
Church, and as a promoter of benevolent enterprises.
At the death of his father, in 1851, he inherited the
earldom. Died October i, 1885.

Shafteabury, (ANTHONY COOPER,) third EARL 07,
a celebrated English writer, born in London in 1671,
was a grandson of the first Earl. He was educated by
John Locke, the philosopher, who was a friend of his
grandfather. According to a statement of the pupil
himself, Locke "had the absolute direction of his educa-
tion." In 1693 he entered Parliament, where he acted
with the Whigs. During a residence in Holland, to
which he went in 1698, he became acquainted with
Bayle and Leclerc. On the death of his father, in 1699,
he passed into the House of Lords. He was a political
friend of WilHam III., who consulted him in important
affairs. After the death of William (1705) he retired
from public service. He published a " Letter on Enthu-
siasm," (1708^ "Moralists, a Philosophical Rhapsody,"
(1709,) and "Sensus Communis, or Essay on Wit and
Humour," (1709.) His style as a writer was greatly ad-
mired, though it is wanting in ease and simplicity. He
died at Naples in February, 17:3, leaving one son, An-
thony. His collected works were published in 1713,
under the title of "Characteristics of Men, Manners,
Opinions, and Times." Leibnitz warmly applauded his
"Characteristics." " His fine genius and generous spirit,"
says Sir J. Mackintosh, "shine through his writings;
but their lustre is often dimmed by peculiarities, and, it
must be said, by affectations, which are peculiarly fatal to
the permanence of fame." Referring to his " Moralists,"
the same critic says, " Perhaps there is scarcely any
composition in our language more lofty in its moral and
religious sentiments and more exquisitely elegant and
musical in its diction. . . . 'The Inquiry concerning
Virtue' is nearly exempt from the faulty peculiarities of
the author; the method is perfect, the reasoning just,
the style precise and clear. . . . This production is un-
questionably entitled to a place in the first rank of
English tracts on moral philosophy. It contains more
intimations of an original and important nature on the
theory of ethics than perhaps any preceding work of
modern times. His demonstration of the utility of vir-
tue to the individual far surpasses all attempts of the
same nature, being founded not on a calculation of
outward advantages or inconveniences, alike uncer-
tain, precarious, and degrading, but on the unshaken
foundation of the delight which is of the very essence
of social affection and virtuous sentiment, ... on the
all-important truth that to love is to be happy and to
hate is to be miserable, that affection is its own reward
and ill will its own punishment. . . The relation of
religion to morality, as far as it can be discovered by
human reason, was never more justly or more beauti-

the Sikhs.

Shah-Alam (or Schah-Alem) IL ascended the
throne of India in 1759. In order to strengthen his
authority over his empire, he had recourse to the British,
to whom he gave a grant of Bengal, Bahar, and Orissa,

two of his brothers and deposed his father. He died in
1666 at Agra, where a large establishment had been
granted him. The court of Shah-Jehan was celebrated

jewels valued at ,6,500,000, was constructed by him.
He also founded the city of Shah Jehanabad, or New
Delhi, and erected many magnificent public buildings,
among which the Taj-Mahal, a mausoleum, erected in
honour of his favourite wife, called Taj-Mahal, ("the
Crown of the Palace,") near Agra, is justly regarded
