After quitting College, he entered second master of that celebrated seminary, Rugby School, in Warwickshire, of which, on the demise, or resignation of the principal, he was unanimously elected head master.

Lately was opened for the public recep tion of merchants' veffels, the Grand Surrey Canal Dock at Rotherhithe, amidst the accla mations of the populace, and a numerous affemblage of the gentlemen proprietors, who afterwards retired to the London Tavern, dined and spent the evening with conviviality. The veffels entered the dock under falute of cannon, ftreamers flying, with a martial band of mufic, playing popular airs. This dock or bafon from its extenfive capacity will contain about 100 fail of fquare-rigged veffels at any draught of water in which they can approach the pool. This public work was firit fuggefted and laid out by Mr. Dodd, the engineer, and an act of parliament immediately after obtained for its execution. The dock and main line of canal and collateral cuts are as follows The ship dock immediately communicating with the River Thames, a little below the King's Mills, Ro therhithe gives admiffion into the grand dock, or bafon. On the North, South, Eaft, and Weft fide of the latter, is an extenfive fite for building wharis, warehouses, &c.; and in the centre of the dock or bafon a large inland for the fame purpose, to which there is access by a draw bridge. The convenience of this dock for the erection of warehouses, granaries, depots for coals, &c. fo near the metropolis, fufficiently speak for its utility. The main line of canal paffing from the dock or bafon runs nearly in a fouth line on the west of Deptford, and from thence in a west line croffing the Kent, Camberwell, and Clapham roads, enters the Thames again at Vauxhall Creek, a little above the fite where the intended ftone bridge, now before parliament, is propofed to be carried over the Thames. Attached to this main line is a collateral cut to Peckham, Horfemonger-lane, Southwark, and Butt-lane, Deptford; the whole of this range of eight miles is upon one entire level, without a lock, and peninfulates the fouth of the metropolis, with which the Croydon Canal forms a junction, that is propofed to be finished in the courfe of this fummer, with the part of the main line before defcribed, now that the dock has opened a com munication with the Thames. The upper lines and levels of this canal extend from Kennington Common, along the wash-way, to Rushey Green, Stockwell, palling in the vicinity of Clapham and Tooting to Mitcham. The company of proprietors are now applying to parliament to make a collateral cut from the Bricklayers' Arms to the main line of the canal near where it cruffes the Kent Road, for the ufe of paffage-bosts, by which means much facility will be given to perfons paffing from London to Peckham, Deptford, Greenwich, and parts adjacent ; as well as to Croy
