power of reading music correctly at sight, which implies a distinct idea of the value of notes, theoretical knowledge of what the performer has to do in playing, teaching, or learning any new piece of music with correct phrasing, brilliant tone, and artistic effects, will derive more practical benefit from the scientific and lucid exposition of the true principles of theory of this art in the Treatise, in a few weeks, without a master, than in years from any other, even with a master. "In twenty-five minutes the boy (writes the Rev. Mr. Gleig, ChaplainGeneral), to the amazement of my family, was able to name every note, no matter in what order it might be brought before him. I look upon Mr. Rola's achievement as the commencement of one of the most useful revolutions which in music, at least, the world has witnessed."

This Society, founded in 1655, grants —

Were the Funds of the Society increased the Grants would be proportionately raised, and with this view the Governors earnestly invite SUBSCRIPTIONS and DONATIONS, which would be gratefully received by Messrs. Hoare, Bankers, Fleet Street, E.C.; or the undersigned.

A List of Donations and Subscriptions, including those at the recent Festival of the Sons of the Clergy, will shortly be advertised.

Notes.

DR. WILMOT'S POLISH PRINCESS. There is one chapter in the Wilmot-Serres romance which, though slightly touched upon by the Attorney-General in the late cause célèbre, deserves a few remarks; one personage who every now and then comes on the scene, "like a shadow and so departs," of whose presence, however, for reasons which will appear hereafter, it is desirable some record should be preserved. I allude to the Princess Poniatowski, whom Dr. Wilmot is alleged to have married, and by whom he is said to have become the father of the supposed Duchess of Cumberland.

This Princess is like Dame Quickly, one "don't know where to have her." We first get a glimpse of her in 1813, in Mrs. Serres' Life of Dr. James Wilmot (an impudent and foolish attempt to prove him the writer of The Letters of Junius), where, in a note at p. 116, we read—

"When the Princess of Poland visited England, Dr. Wilmot attended her to the University. She valued our author exceedingly during her residence in England, and invited him to the Court of Poland; she frequently corresponded with him after her departure from this kingdom."

66

of Kent, who seems to have been no sooner let into this grave secret, than he was seized with the same mania for writing certificates and declarations for which all the parties to it are so remarkable ;* a mania which manifested itself in making its victims forget their grammar and orthography, spell offspring" orfspring; and all alike endeavour to hide the mysteries with which they were familiar under the most transparent veil. Thus we find Dr. Wilmot cautiously concealing the names of Junius, Lord Shelburne, and Wilkes, under the occult symbols of Jus, Ld S-ne, J. W—; while Lord Chatham, in a document in which he pledges himself not to betray the Duke of Cumberland's second marriage, writes about "the laws against b- -y," and the Duke of Kent in like manner writes, "F- -t M-ge" and "R-1 birthright," for fear anybody should guess he meant "first marriage" and "royal birthright."

66

But though, in 1815, Lord Warwick announced to Mrs. Serres that she was the daughter of the Duchess of Cumberland, he seems very unaccountably to have omitted the additional interesting fact that she was the granddaughter of a Princess. Strange omission this of Lord Warwick; but still the fact must have been forgotten, for two years after Mrs. Serres had ascertained her descent from the Duchess of Cumberland, we find her, in a pamphlet published in 1817, entitled Junius, Sir Philip Francis denied, asserting, at p. 6— "Dr. Wilmot was NEVER MARRIED," and drawing from that circumstance additional arguments in favour of his identity with Junius.

Serres did not put forth any claim to be a deAs far as we have been able to ascertain, Mrs. scendant from a Polish Princess until 1821, when she made the following announcement in The British Luminary, which was understood to be the Princess of Cumberland's official organ; at which time also she declared her right to the throne of Poland :

"Dr. Wilmot, in early life, was a Fellow of Trinity College; he was a high-spirited, independent character, of great talent, and the friend and favorite of many of the young nobility then at Oxford. Stanislaus, afterwards King of Poland, was at that time studying at Oxford, and Dr. Wilmot became intimate with him. Stanislaus had a SISTER living with him (Princess Poniatouski), which subsisted between the Prince and the Doctor, he was a very beautiful young creature; and from the intimacy frequently in company with the young Princess; a mutual attachment took place between them; but the Princess was not rich; and they were at length privately married. Only a few confidential friends were acquainted

* Dr. Smith, the Counsel of Mrs. Ryves, is reported in The Times of June 2 to have stated that about seventy documents would be produced, containing forty-three signatures of Dr. Wilmot, sixteen of Lord Chatham,

In 1815 Lord Warwick communicated to Mrs. Serres the startling and agreeable fact that she twelve of Dunning, twelve of George III., thirty-two of was the daughter of the Duchess of Cumberland-Lord Warwick, and eighteen of the Duke of Kent. What and not only to Mrs. Serres, but also to the Duke an ingenious mode of keeping state secrets!
