Tighe, Mary, the daughter of the Rev. William Blachford, by Thcodosia, the daughter of William Tighe, of Rosanna, co. Wicklow, Ireland, was married to Henry Tighe, M.P., of Woodstock, eo. Wicklow, and d. March 24, 1810, after an illness of six years. Perhaps she is better known to many as the subject of Moore's touching lyric, "I saw Thy Form in Youthful Prime," and Mrs. Hemans's "Grave of a Poetess," than by her own exquisite verses. Her poem of Psyche, or the Legend of Love, (founded on the story of Cupid and Psyche as related in the Golden Ass of Apuleius,) was

frivately printed (100 copies) by C. Whittingham, Lon., SO.i, 12ino, pp. 214. After her death appeared: Psyche, with other Poems, by the Late Mrs. Henry Tighe, (with portrait,) 1811, largo 4to, pp.314; 3d ed., 1811, Svo; Phila., 1812, 12mo; again, Lon., 1812, Svo; 1813, 8vo; 1816. 8vo; Psyche, 1843, 24uio ; also pub. with Apuleius's Golden Ass, 1853, p. Svo, (Bonn's Class. Lib., li.) Psyohe, written in the Spenserian stanza, managed with groat skill, is in six cantos.

"The three last cantos . . . are beyond all doubt the most fiiiltlcts series of verses ever produced by a woman."—Sir Jame3 Mackintosh: Lift, ii. eh. iii., (a. v.)

"The Psyche of Mrs. Tighe has a languid beauty, probably resembling that of her person. . . . The greater part of the poem is little worth, except as ;i strain of elegance; but now and then we meet with a fancy not unworthy a pupil of Spenser."—Leioh Hunt: Men, Women, and Books, ii. : Spec, of Brit. Poetesses, No. ii.

"An adventurous and elaborate effort, full of power and beauty, which wanted only a little more artistic skill and concentration to have entitled it to a place among first-class productions."—D. M. Moir: Sketches of Pott. Lit., 3d ed., 1850, 37.

Tillotson, John, D.D., the son of a Puritan clothier, was b. nt Sowerhy, Yorkshire; became a pensioner of Clare Hall, Cambridge, 1617, and a Fellow. 1651; left the Presbyterians, submitted to the Act of Uniformity, and became Curate of Cheshunt, Hertford. 1661-62; Rector of Kedington.

Tillotson's Style.

Addison considered Tillotson the chief standard of our tongue; Locke recommends his works as models of perspicuity nnd propriety of language; Dr. Doddridge pronounces "his method admirably clear beyond almost any other man ;'* Dryden's opinion has been already quoted, (p. 524, mipra : quotation from Congreve.)

One of the moat eminent of his contemporaries tells us,

"He was not only the host prencher of the ape, but seemed to have brought preaching to perfection: hi- sermon* were so well beard and liked, and Mi much read, that all the nation proposed him an a pattern and studied to copy alter him."—Ui.-hop Kurnkt: Hist, nf Our Time*, ed. 1833, 'iii.

*' Tillot"«'ii taught by his sermon* more minister* to prearh welt, and more people to live well, than any man since the apostles' dayf. lie was the ornament of the last century, and the glory of his (unction; In the pulpit, another <'liryso**tom; and in the episcopal chair, a second Cranmer."—IVilfnrtT* Memorials.

"The way to obtain this [perspicuity] is to read Mich hooka as are allowed to be writ with the greatest clearness nnd propriety, in the language that a man uses. Au author excellent in thiH faculty, as well aa several other?, is Dr. Tilli.t*on. lata Archbishop of Canterbury, in all that in published of his."—Joum Locke: &>me Tfamght* concerning Reading and Study,

"Art. eloquence, and perspicuity appear in the utmost perfection in Tillotson's Mentions; and when I would labour to composts a sermon, I would prepare my mind, and consequently my style, with reading some few of those discourses beforehand."— Dk. Wotton: On Studying Divinity.

"Il'ippy is the man who can form his style on that of Tillotson!"—Dean Stanhope.

"He is all over natural and easy in the most unconstrained and freest elegancy of thoughts and words: his course, both in his reasoning and his style, like a gentle and an even current, is clear and deep, and calm and strong. His language is so pure, no water can be more; it floweth with t,o (rev, uninterrupted a stream, that it neverstoppeth the reader or itself. Every word poss^sseth its proper place."—Dr. II. Kblton.

"His sermons interest the heart and convince the understanding. Ease nn»i perspicuity, good sense and sincere pi«(y, are their distitignifthinK character. His many excellencies considered, he will forever remain the boast of this nation, an one of its best writers, and probably as its ablest divine."—ArchBevcox Todd.

"The. unaffected of every country nearly resemble each other, ami a page of our Confucius and yonr Tillotson have scarce any material difference."—Goldsmith.

"By reading Tillotson'g works with care and observation, you will not only learn true notions of religion, but also the way and manner of writing Knglish correctly and purely. His style I take to Ik? the best standard of the English language." —Robert Nelson: Letters to George. Harper.

Bickerstcth thought his "notions of religion" not unexceptionable:

** His low views of sacrifices have been justly commented on by Archbishop Magee, [Discourses on the Atonement, ii. '219231.] It is the general withholding nf the all-enlivening and vivifying doctrines of tlie gospel, and frequent statements which tend another way, (statements to which the excesses of former times seem to havp given rise.) that form our grand objections to the divinity of Tillotaon."—- Clirixtian Student. 4th ed., 285. Se*\ aim, Gibson, Kdwund. No. 9. (quotation from Bickersteth.) "Tillotson's method is clear; his notions of religion are much in the Arm in inn strain; his style is defective l«ith in harmony of nnmtwr* and energy of manner."—Dr. Williams: Christian Student. 5th ed., 316.

"Simplicity is the great beauty of Archbishop Tillotson's manner. . . . His style is always pure, indeed, and perspicuous, but careless and remiss; too often feeble and languid; little beauty in the construction of his sentences, which are frequently suffered to drag nnharmoniously; seldom any attempt towards strength or sublimity."—Dr. Blair: Rhetoric and B.-L., Lect. XIX., (7. r.) See. also, T>cta. X., XI.. XIII.. XV.

"You cannot sleep with Taylor; yon cannot forbear thinking with Barrow. But yon may be much at your ease in the midst of a long lecture from Tillntson,—clear and rational and equable as he is. Perhaps the last quality may account for it."— Bishop Warbcrtox: Letters from a Late Km. Prelate, Lett. I.

"Without soaring to the height of eloquence, Tillotson refined the btnguugeof the pulpit."—Chateaubriand; Sketches of Eng. Lit., fi. 195.

"Tillotson's merit is nnqnestionably great; . . . but there are those who venture to suggest that he has been too much celebrated as a model of fine composition."—Dr. Knox.

"His words are frequently ill chosen, and almost always ill placed; his periods are both tedious and nnhamionions, as his metaphors are generally mean, and often ridiculous."—William Melmoth: Fitzotbome's fatter*.

"I should not advise a preacher at this day to Imitate Tillotson's style; though I don't know; T should be cautious of objecting to what has been applauded by so many suffrages."— Dr. Jonxsov: Life, by Boswetl, ch. lxli.

** He f.Tohn«onT could but Just endure the smooth verbosity of Tillotson."—Sir John Hawkins.

"The sermons of TiHot-son were for half a century more read than any in our language. They are now bought almost as waste paper, and hardly read at all. Such is the fickleness of religions taste, as abundantly numerous instances would prove. Tillot*on is reckoned verlnwe and languid. He has not the former defect in nearly so great a degree as some of his eminent predecessors; but there Is certainly little vigour or vivacity in his style. . . . Tillotson is always of a tolerant and catholic spirit, enforcing right actions rather than orthodox opinions, and obnoxious, for thot and other reasons, to all the bigots of his own age."—Hallam: Lit. Hist, of Europe, 4th ed., 1854, iil. 297.

See. also, Stili.ingflbet, Edward, D.D., (quotations from Hallfttn and Burnet.)

"Archbishop Tillotson has pronounced an authoritative opinion in favour of Natural Religion as essential to the proof of Revealed. His admirable sermons abound In such statements.—thus, in the 41st. . . . The sermon on Steadfastness in K"J'vii>n, one of the Archbishop's great masterpieces, and in which he demonstrates against Rome the right of private Judgment, tallies with the 41«t in the doctrine on Natural Religion." —lord Brougham: Discourse, on Natural Theology, ed. 185G, 135, n.

"Mary fQne^n of Englandl had a way of Interrupting tattle about r-!op<»mcnt*. duels, and play-debts, by asking the tattlers, very quietly, yet significantly, whether they had ever read her favourite sermon. Dr. Tillotson's on Evil-Speaking. . . . Tillotson -till keeps his place as a legitimate English critic. His brightest flights vicro indeed far below those of Taylor, of Barrow, and of South; but his oratory was more correct and equable than theirs. . . . Hfs style is not brilliant; but it is pure, transparently clear, and equally free from the levity and from the •tiffne«g which disfigure the sermons of some eminent divine* of the seventeenth century. . . . The greatest charm of his compositions, however, is derived from the benignity and candour which appear in everv line, and which shone forth not Ies« cr.nfrpicnotislv In his life than in his writings."—Lord Macatlat: Hint, of Eno.. iii. rh. xi.. xiv.

New edits, of the History and Continuation : 1755, 2 vols. 8vo; continued to 1757, 1757 -59, 21 vols. 8vo; 1784-89, 5 vols. fol. There are some of the octavo ed. dated 1745 and 1747, and some of tho folio ed. dated 1761. Of the Rapin and Tindal, 1743-47, 5 vols, fol., some of the former are on large and largest paper, and some of the latter are on fine paper. If you wish the best folio impression of the whole, (see collation in Bohn's Lowndes, 2047,) get the five vols. 1734— 47, or 1734-51, (which include the Mcdallie History, 1745, also pub. sep.;) if you seek tho best octavo edition, secure that of 1757-59, 21 vols. 8vo. The portraits by Houbraken and engravings by Vertue add to tho value of Rapin and Tindal's volumes. The Abridgment, or Summary, at tho end of the Continuation, (also pub. sep. 1747, 3 vols. 8vo,) is ascribed to Philip Morant, who is said to have aided Tindal in the History and Continuation. Archdeacon Coxo asserts (Mem. ef Sir R. Walpole, Pref.) that the Continuation was "principally written by Dr. [Thomas] Birch,"—assisted by "persons of political eminence" He praises tho Continuation highly; both this and the History are vory valuable.
