Caknoks.—This most splendid palace Blood on the r**i leading to Edgeware. The fronts were all of free"(»*, and the pillars of marble, as were also the steps of '•* great stair-case. The gilding was executed by the f*ra.ju, PargoMi, and the hall painted by Paolucci. The •partnKMj were most exquisitely finished, and most rickly famished. The gardens, avenues, and offices, were ff'twrtiombly grand. At night there was a constant *»'c* kept, who walked the rounds and proclaimed the wart. The dake also maintained a foil choir, and had <lni»e service performed with the best music, in a chapel tui cwud hardly b*.- exceeded in the beauty of its worknuriJB. Bat all this terminated with his lift-; for on m decease this magnificent mansion was disposed of P*«*n»eal. The stone obelisks, with copper lamps, which '"fined the approach from the Edgeware-road, were pur

chased for the Earl of Tilncy, for his new building at Wanstead, in Essex, which has since experienced the fate of Cannons; the marble staircase was bought by the Earl of Chesterfield for his residence in May Fair. The ground and rite whereon this magnificent edifice stood became the property of an opulent tradesman, who built thereon a neat habitation which still remains, after having passed into the hands of the well known Culonel O'Kelly of sporting celebrity.
