CUMBERLAND. RICHARD COMEERLAND, son of Dr. Denison Cumberland, late Bishop of Ki]more, in Ireland, by Joanna, younges! daughter of the celebrated Dr, Bentley (a Jady on wliom the well-known pastoral of Phebe, by Dr. Byrom, printed in The Spectulor, Nr. 60.5, was writien), and great-grandson of Dr. Richard Cumberland, Bishop of Peterborough, was boru February 19, 1751, in the master's lodge of Trinity College, Cambridge, under the roof of his graudsather Bentley, in what is called the Judge's Chamber. When turned of six years of age, he was sent to the school of Bury St. Edinund's, whence he was in due time transplanied lu Wesíminster. Al the age of fourteen Mr. C. was admitted to Trinity College, Cambridge, whence, after a long and assiduous course of study, he launched into the great world, and became a private confidential scerelary lo Lorp Halifax, then at the head of the Board of Trade; which situation he held with great credit to himeelt, till lis Lordship went out of ofhce. Suon after this, he obtained the lay fellowship of Trinity College, vacant by the death of Mr. 'Titley, the Danish Envoy. This fellowship, however, he did not hold Jong; for, on oblaining, through the palronage of Lord Halifax, a small establishment as crown agent for the province of Nova Scotia, he married Elisabeth, only daughter of George Ridge, Esq. of Kilmiston, in Hampshire, in whose family he had long heen jurimate. When Lord Halifax returned io administration, and was appointed Lord Lieutewant of Ireland, Mr. C. went with him to that country, as under-secretary; his father, as one of his chaplaids, and his broiher in law, Capt. William Ridge, as one of his aides-de-camp. Before Lord Halifax quitted Ireland to become Secielary of State, Mr, Cumberland's father had been made Bishop of Clonfert, and Mr. Cumberland himself, who had declined a baroncicy which had been offered him by his patron, came to England with his Lordship, and was appointed, we believe, to the situation of assistant secretary to the Board of Trade. About the end of the year 1771, the Bishop of Clonfert was translated to kilmorr, which see, however, he held not long, being translated by death to a belter world, to which he was followed by his lady in June 1775. The accession of Lord George Germaine to the scals, for the coloniald.partment promoted Mr. Canberland from a subaltero at the Board of Trade to the post of seeretary. In the year 1789 he was sent om i secret and contidential mission to the court of Spain; and it is reported, that his embassy would have been successful, but for the riots in London, and the caplure of our East-and West-India Heels, whicle inspired Spaniards with more confidence than they had before possessed. In this mission Mr. Cumberland necessarily incured great espenses; and he was cruelly neglected by the ministers after the conclusion of his negotiation, It was, how ver, during his resid: nce in that country that he collected the Anecdotes of eminent Painters in Spain, which he afterwards published. liy the provisions of Mr. Burke's well-known bill, the Board of Trade was annihs.

lated, and Mr. Cumberland was set adrill with a compensation of scarcely a moiety in value of what he had been de prived of. He now retired, with his family, to Tunbridge Wells, where he has continned, we believe, uver since to reside, universally respected. That a man of such learning. of such versatility of literary talent, such unquestionable Eenius, and such'sound morality, should, in the vale of years," feel the wani of what he has lost by his exertions for ihe public goud, mast, lo every feeling mind, be a subject of keen regrels; yet the fact seems to be placed beyond doubt by the following annonciation of his intention, in 1809, to publish a sto volume of his dramas: "To the Public was my paspose to have reserved these MSS. for the eventual use and advantage of a heloved daughter after my decease; bat the circumstances of my story, which are before the public, and to which I can appeal without a blush, make it aeedless for me to state why I am not able to fulfil that purpose: I therefore now, with full reliance on the candoar and pr Atection of my countrymen at large solicit their subscription to these unpublished dramas; conscious as I am, that neither in this instance, nor in any other through the course of my long-continaed labours, have I wilfully directed the humble talents, with which God has endowed me, otherwise than to his service, and the genuine interesis (so far as I understood them) of benevolence and virtue. Richard Cumberland."
