'T seems useful in visiting a country to have not only a guide to ])laces and routes, but a framework for obser- ''^^ vations and recollections. Otherwise the effect produced on the \ Mna of the mind is apt to be like that produced by a whirl of successive sights on the retina of the eye. This is particularly the case when the objects of interest are of so many different kinds as they are in England. To furnish such a frame- work is the limited aim of this paper, which is an expansion of a lecture delivered to friends. The voyage to England is now easy enough, barring that curious little malady which still defies medical science to trace its cause and is so capricious in its range, often taking the strong and leaving the weak. There is nothing to be said about the voyage. Only, as we career over those wild waters in a vast floating hotel at tho ^ 4 (?rv{p to (iBni)lan>« rate of five hundred miles a day, let us pay a tribute to the brave hearts which first crossed them in mere boats without charts or science of navigation. In the marvellous strides which of late years humanity has taken, nothing is more marvellous or more momentous than the unifi- cation of the world by the extinction of distance. Already we have made one harvest we are fast : making one mind and one heait for the world. As an old country, England perhaps is natur- ally regarded first from the historical point of view, and especially by us of whose history she is the scene, whose monuments and the graves of whose ancestors she holds. It is an advantage which Canadians have over Americans that they have not broken with their history and cast off the influences, at once exalting and sobering, which the record of a long and grand foretime exerts upon the mind of a community. An American has no history before the Revolution, which took place at the end of the last centur}^ In his parlance, " Revolutionary " denotes that which is most ancient : it is to the American the equivalent for "Norman." He says that the " Revolutionary " so and so was liis ancestor, as an English nobleman wo'.ld say that his ances- tors came in with the Concjuust. Looking at the suhject historicjilly, we have the England of the ancient Britons, Roman Eng- land, Saxon England, the England of the Middle Ages, the England of the Tudors, the England of the Stuarts, the England of Anne anu the Georges, all represented by their monuments. Of the primitive habits of the Britons we have monuments in hut-circles of British villages still to be seen on P^xmoor, where the wild stag finds es of a shelter, and on wolds and downs, near Whitby ntage or Marlborough, where the traces of the primeval they world have not yet been effaced by the plough. St off Of their wild tribal wars we have monuments in ring, the numerous earthworks, once forts or places of jtinie An refuge for the tribe, which crown many a hill and of which perhaps the largest and most strik- ition, ing is the triple rampart of ''Maiden Castle'' on a iury. id) near Dorchester.
