was a merchant in the Virginia trade, which he began with a very inconsiderable capital; but his rigid honesty and dexterity is business, having recommended him to some great mercantile houses, they adopted his interest, and by liberal loans enabled him co extend the circle of his commerce: from this assistance the house of Baring soon rose to consideration, in a city where wealth and ta. lents for business are estimated at their proper value. With parental fondness Mr. Baring watched over the education of his son, in order to render him a complete man of business, till he was sent to a reputable school under a Mr. Coleman, the author of several mathematical treatises. It was here he ac, quired the talent for which he was must dis. tinguished; for in calculations made on the spot, admitting of no previous study, he was certainly considered as unequalled. Upon the death of his fathor he was esteemed a most worthy successor; and the richest houses, and the most wealthy heiresses, at the cast-end of the town, considered Irim as a desirable partner. He at length married the daughter of Mr. Boston, an opulent mer. chant. Mr. Baring, from a proprietor, ha. ving become a director of the East India Company in the year 1784, canvassed the Cornish' borough of Grampound, and took his seat in the House of Commons. The ration was then just beginning to recover from the effects of the American revolution, and Mr. Baring had the bonour of being con. sulted by the Premier with respect to be means to be adopted on this occasion. His wealth, talents, and activity, augmented his favour and importance with Mr. Pitt's admin nistration. He was considered as one of the strongest links of the monied aristrocracy: and was created a baronet in 1793. It is well known that the system of this country, with regard to all its foreign possessions, has ever been that of exclusive monupolv; according. By, when the whole body of English mer chants demanded some participation in the East Indian traffic, Sir Francis came forward as the advocate of the company. He in. sisted that their heavy expence and their ac. tual public services composed a debt, to the discharge of which an eternal monopoly of the East India trade would scarcely be suffi cient! It is needless to add, that the charter was again renewed; and the reliet of the bdoy of English merchants, from what their peti tion called "oppressive monopoly," was lelt, like other evils, to the gradual effect of time, or the shock of some revolution. In 1796, upon Sir John Jervis being rewarded witii a peerage, and vacating his seat tor Clipping iw ycombe, Sir Francis Baring was elected for

that borough; and at the general election in 1809, he was again returned for the same place, Sir Francis was esteemei as not lets amiable in domestic than in public life. Ale though of a grave cast of mind, be was not without a relish for social enjoyments, and was, till within a few years past, seldom ab sent from the parties and entertainments of his friends. The routes of his lady were reckoned among some of the most brilliant in town; but he preferred the more tranquil enjoyments of a domestic circle, le those gay, but promiscuous, assemblies. His table was such as became his wealth, and ho solid hospitality was perfectly suitable to be opulent character of an English merchant. His talents were of a rery superior cast, and highly improved by reading. Few men badeestood the real interests of trade better; and it may surely be added, few men ever arrived to the highest rank and honour of commercial life with more unsullied integrity. At his death, he was unquestionably the first mer. chant in Europe; first in knowledge and ta. lents, and first in character and opulence. His name was known and respected in every commercial quarter of the globe ; and by the East India company, and other public trading bodies, he was consulted as a mea of car. summate knowledge and inflexible honour. Throughout his long and respectable life, he acted on those steady principles which seldum fail to raise men to opulence and credit, al. though they may not always enable them to shine with such superior lustre. Oue ob struction Sir Francis Baring had to conteni with from his earliest days, an incurable deafness. By the usual helps, horever, be contrived that this should very little impede his communications, and both in Parliament and as chairman to the East India company, his opinion was so highly valued, that every pains was taken to prevent the subject in de bate from suffering by his infirmity. He private, as well as public life, if faithfully delineated would form a most instructive les. son to the mercantile world, and a lesson s. ticularly necessary at a time when so many seem to forget or despise the genuine attra butes of an English merchant, and aspire at sudden and unsubstantial wealth and credit. by the paltry speculations of mere fraud and low cunning. On the contrary, the soundet principles and truest policy laid the founde tion of Sir Francis Baring's fortune and cha. racter, and guided him in all his transactions. In fucure annals he will rank with the illas. trious names of Gresham, Firmin, and Bay. nard, men who have formed the English cho racter, and to whom English commerce is in. devted for its superiority,
