For FEBRUARY 1796.


BOUT two years after the publi-
cation of "The Wealth of Na
tions," Mr Smith was appointed one of
the Commiffioners of his Majesty's Cuf-
toms in Scotland; a preferment which,
in his estimation, derived an additional
value from its being bestowed on him at
the request of the Duke of Buccleugh.
The greater part of these two years he
paffed at London, in a fociety too exten-
five and varied to afford him any oppor-
tunity of indulging his tafte for study.
His time, however, was not loft to him-
self; for much of it was spent with fome
of the first names in English literature.
Of these no unfavourable fpecimen is
preferved by Dr Barnard, in his well
known verfes addreffed to Sir Joshua
Reynolds and his friends:

If I have thoughts and can't express 'em,
Gibbon fhall teach me how to dreis 'em,
In words felect and terfe;
Jones teach me modefty and Greek,
Smith how to think, Burke how to speak,

And Beauclerc to converse.

In confequence of Mr Smith's ap pointment to the Board of Customs, he removed, in 1778, to Edinburgh, where he spent the last twelve years of his life; enjoying an affluence which was more than equal to all his wants; and what was to him of fill greater value, the profpect of paffing the remainder of his days among the companions of his youth. His mother, who, though now in extreme old age, still poffeffed a confiderable degree of health, and retained all her faculties unimpaired, accompanied him to town; and his coufin Mifs Jane

Douglas, (who formerly had been a member of his family at Glasgow, and for whom he had always felt the affection of a brother,) while fhe divided with him thofe tender attentions which her aunt's infirmities required, relieved him of a charge for which he was peculiarly ill qualified, by her friendly fuperintendence of his domeftic œconomy.

The acceffion to his income which

his new office brought him, enabled him to gratify, to a much greater extent than his former circumftances admitted of, the natural generofity of his difpofition; and the state of his funds at the time of his death, compared with his very moderate establishment, confirmed, beyond a doubt, what his intimate acquaintances had often fufpected, that a large proportion of his annual favings was allotted to offices of fecret charity. A fmail, but excellent library, which he had gradually formed with great judgement in the selection; and a fimple, though hofpitable table, where, without the formality of an invitation, he was always happy to receive his friends, were the only expences that could be considered as his own.

The change in his habits which his removal to Edinburgh produced, was not equally favourable to his literary purfuits. The duties of his office, though they required but little exertion of thought, were yet fufficient to walle his fpirits and diffipate his attention; and now that his carreer is closed, it is impoffible to refl. &t on the time they confumed, without lamenting that they had L 2
