CHAPTER THE SIXTEENTH.

In order to do ample justice to the interesting subject of which we now treat, and satisfied that nothing which tends to illustrate the glorious campaign of 1759, will be read with indifference at the present day, we devote this chapter to a selection from the various anecdotes and reminiscences, which have been handed down, relative to the chief actors in the eventful crisis which added another wreath to the national fame, and a new Province to the British Empire.

MEMORABILIA OF 1759.

ANECDOTE OF MR. PITT, AFTERWARDS EARL OF CHATHAM.

The following anecdote of Mr. Pitt, the Minister who selected WOLFE as eminently fit for the command of the expedition against Quebec, was communicated by bis under Secretary of State, Mr. Wood, to a friend of his, and is a striking proof of his honesty and energy of purpose.

Mr. Pirt sought out merit wherever he could find it; and knowing that he could not give General Wolfe a suificient number of troops, he told him that he would make it up to him as well as he could, by giving him the appointment of all his officers. Wolfe sent in his list, in which was the name of an officer, Lieutenant Colonel Guy Carleton, who had unfortunately made himself obnoxious to the then King, by some unguarded expression, concerning the Hanover troops, and which had, by some officious person, been repeated to His Majesty.
