and considerable literary attainments. He . was born in the year 1749 at Faltnouth, at which place he afterwards kept a bookseller's shop. But the greater p.'rt of his property beittg consumed by fire, he was induced to fol. low the bent of his itiifinat'Or for the art of landscape and portrait painting. The bettrr to qualify himself for his profession, and to divert his mind from the painful recollection of his misfortune, he accompanied his brother, who was the master of a merchant vessel, in a voyage to the Balric. Impelled by that enthusiasm which is the characteristic of a superior mind, he made a tour, alone and on foot, through Sweden, Norway, and part of Russia, Caking views of Che wild and sublime scenery which Che Norwegian mountoins, Che Kol of Sweden and the lakes and forests to the notthof the Neva, offer to the eye of the enthusiast of Nature:

Pine cover'd rocks, And mountain lorests of ccernal shade, And glens and vales, on whose gieen quiet less The lingering eye reposes, and fair lakes That image the light foliage of the herch.

Many of Mr. Fox's acquaintance will remember the pleasure they once felt in beholding these beautiful productions of his pemii, and in hearing him read the manuscript account of his travels. He possessed great facility in theafquirementof language^ andpursuvd wicliuiuch success the study of oriental literature. His collection of oriental manuscripts, was a considerable one, and his porms of Hatiz, Sa-ii, Jaroi, Aovari, Fcrfusi, and others-, " Thirazian gardens, prodigal of blooms," would fill several volumes. About six years ago, he had prepared two volumes of poems form the Persian for the press But increasing debiliCy constitution, disqualified him for the labour of publication, and he continuea to add to the number of his former translations, until within a short period of his death. In a recent letter to the writer of this, he says, "that the many Aiiagrtcabltt of publication are so very opposite to every inducement of writing, that Chey cast a damp upon each generous mind, snd destroy poetic sentiment. For the hapless author has not only to sustain Che shock of caustic illiberalicy on the one hand, but of talents prostituted to the in riots of certain booksellers, who require every thing to be depreciated in which they have no copyright, on the other" It is to this opinion oi the dangers of authorship, thac we may attri bute the circumstance of Mr. Fox having written so much, yet published so little, la 17'.17, he published a volime of poems, "con tainiflg the Plaints, s, and De

lights of Achrrred' '' a Persian Exile,"

For several years prior to his dccta,-, he had retired from business, and passed his retircment in the cultivation of that talent for poetry, which.he ever valued is the oorrp.uiori of his solitude, the ornament and solace of active life.
