As the traveller advances into the country, robbers and rumours of robbers fly before him with the horizon. And all that we necessarily mean to claim when we deny of such an occurrence, in any particular case, that it is a mere coincidence, is that that particular case must be taken out of the common list and transferred to one in which there _is_ some such preferential selection.

Some of these indicate an almost preternatural capacity and inspired awfulness of look, particularly some of the earlier sages and fabulists of Greece, which we apprehend to be _ideal_ representations; while other more modern and better authenticated ones of celebrated Romans are distinguished by the strength and simplicity of common English heads of the best class.—The large picture of the _Pembroke Family_, by Vandyke, is unrivalled in its kind.

As the Dooms of Mercian kings have not come down to us, these fragments have a special value. A further justification is to be found in the fact that we assume that we need only contemplate the possibility of a single Law of Error, or at any rate that the departures from the familiar Law will be but trifling.
