Excerpt from The Life of John Randolph of Roanoke, Vol. 2 WE have now to view Mr. Randolph in a new aspect. After an ao tive, uninterrupted, and eventful career of fourteen years in the pub lic service, in one of the most remarkable epochs of human history, we have now to follow him into retirement. The triumph of his eu emies at the recent election had no power to shake the firmness of his purpose, or to disturb the serenity of his mind. It relieves me from an odious thraldom, says he, and, I assure you, my dear sir, I have thought and yet think, much more of the charming Mrs. G. Than of the election. The low and base arts to which my adversa ries have resorted, have not raised them or sunk me in my own esti mation.
