She has now been upwards of three years in the world, engaged in useful and active duties, and though she may be liable to extremes, and be too susceptible of the action of exciting causes, yet I have every reason to believe, that experience has taught her the necessity of counteracting and restraining their baneful influence. These principles are custom and fashion, principles which extend their dominion over our judgments concerning beauty of every kind. In the erection of a groin at Trimingham, {43b} a few years since, large square piles, about ten or twelve inches in diameter, were driven into the beach, at a right angle, to the base of the tall cliffs, and extended to or beyond low water mark; they were left projecting a considerable height above the then surface of the beach, and strong planks, fastened with iron bolts, were continuously attached to the tops of the projecting piles. If they realize by those many delicate indications that we all recognize but cannot formulate, that the library is failing to maintain it, the librarian should hear from them. This is something more than mere good-nature or humanity. There is an involuntary, unaccountable family character, as well as family face; and we see it manifesting itself in the same way, with unbroken continuity, or by fits and starts.
