Sir Walter Rawleigh.Rawleigh, alike eminent in the field, and in the closet, presents a life the most fertile of incidents, of all our illustrious men. He was descended from an ancient family in Devonshire; and, while at Oxford, displayed uncommon talents, and a passion for academical studies; but the activity of his temper led him to more enterprizing schemes of life...This illustrious man was, at once, a scholar, a statesman, a navigator, and a soldier. We know not in which to admire him most-such was the felicity and rarity of his genius!
