In 1667 the Sands were the scene of that
desperate duel with swords between William Douglas
younger, of M'hittingham, and Sir John Home, of
Eccles, attended by the Master of Ramsay and
Douglas of Spott, who all engaged together. Sir
James was slain, a d William Douglas had his

In 1620 there were horse-races at Paisley, the
details of which are given in the MaitZand MisceZZany,
in which the temporary prize of the bell
figures prominently; and after the Restoration there
were horse-races every Saturday at Leith, which
are regularly detailed in the little print called the
Mermrills Caledoniu. In the March of 1661 it
states :-" Our accustomed recreations on the

there was a race annually at Haddhgton, the prize

were held at Peebles and Dumfries-at the latter
place in 1575, between Scots and'English, when
the Regent Morton held his court there; but as
such meetings led to conflicts with deadly weapons,
they were interdicted by the Privy Council in 1608 ;
and by an Act of James VI., passed in his twentythiid
Parliament, any sum won upon a horse-race
above a hundred marks was to be given to the

feet in length from the foot of the Walk to
the Water Reservoir (called of old The Pipes) at
the head of Water Lane, by an average breadth of
fifty feet. " Time and modern taste," says Wilson,
" have slowly, but very effectually, modified its antique
features. No timber-fronted gable now
thrusts its picturesque fapde with careless grace
beyond the line of more staid and formal-looking
ashlar fronts. Even the crowstepped gables of the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are becoming
the exception ; it is only by the irregularity which
still pertains to it, aided by the few really picturesque
tenements which remain unaltered, that it
now attracts the notice of the curious visitor as the
genuine remains of the ancient High Street of the
burgh. Some of these relics of former times are

That some funds were derivable from the King's
Wark to the Crown is proved by the frequent
payments with which it was burdened by several
of our monarchs. Thus, in the year 1477 James

The harbour of Leith is formed by the little
estuary of the river into the Firth of Forth, and is
entirely tidal, and was of old, with the exception
of being traversed by the shallow and unimportant
stream which takes its rise at the western base of
the Pentlands, quite dry at low water, and even I the channel towards the side streams of the Firth."
yet its depth is trifling. As the Water of Leith
has to make its way seaward, across the very broad
and flat shore called the Sands of Leith, alternately
flooded by the tide and left nearly dry, the
channel, in its natural state, was subject to much
fluctuation, according to the setting in of the tides.
A bar, too-such as is thrown up at the entrance
of almost every river mouth-lies across
its entrance, formed at that point where the antagonistic
currents of the river and tide bring
each other into stagnation or equipoise, and then
deposit whatever silt they contain. Thus, says a
writer, '' the river constantly, and to an important
amount, varies both the depth of the harbour and
the height of the position of the bar, according
to the fluctuations which occur in the volume of its
~ water or the rapidity of its discharge; for in a
season of drought it leaves everything open to the
invasion of sediments from the tide, at other times
it scours away lodgments made on its bed, drives
seaward and diminishes in bulk the bar, and deepens ... OLD AND NEW EDINBURGH. [ Leith . under distinguished patronage has in no way altered. In 1763, on the 28th ...

could not resist doing a little on their own account
to annoy the English, so they sacked Carrickfergus,
and anchored off Kyle.
Sir-Andrew Wood, with a herald, was sent to take
command of the fleet, but found that it had sailed;
so this little armada, which might have aided in the
invasion of England, was eventually destroyed by
tempests, and the magnificent Michael (which will
be described in a later chapter, in which some
voyage to Bourdeaux, or eke die, rather than be
taken."
His brother Robert was captain of the Great
MichaeZ in I 5 r I.
James IV., stirred by the discovery of America,
was early determined to create a Scottish navy, and
he went about it with all the zeal of a Peter the
Great. In 1512 he had no fewer than forty-six
ships of war ; four of these were of more than 300
tons, and two were of IOO tons. The Lion (Sir
SIGNAL TOWER, LEITH HARBOUR, 1829. (A/w S k ~ ~ . )
account will be given of Newhaven) was suffered
to rot in the harbour of Brest.
Prior to this John Barton had died of fever at
Kirkcudbright, and was buried in the churchyard
of St. Cuthbert; but he left a son named John,
who was captain of the Mav WiZloughby (English
prize), the same ship found in Leith Harbour by
the Earl of Hertford in 1544. " John-a-Barton is
not yet gone to sea," writes Sir Ralph Sadler on
the 25th October, 1543 ; " but it is told me that as
soon as the wind serveth he will go with the Mary
Willoughby and nine sail more, half merchantmen
and half men-of-war, as well furnished of men and
artillery as any ships that went from Scotland these
many years, being determined to accomplish their
Andrew Barton's ship), which was built in 1504,
was, as has beer. said, only inferior to the Greai
Harry, and the MichaeZ was the largest ship in the
world. Some of his galleys had triple banks of
oars raised over each other, and were capable of
containing each sixty inen in complete armour,
besides the rowers, who numbered to each galley
one hundred and four men. Besides the guns
interspersed between the banks of oars, they had
both artillery and small arms planted at the forecastle
and stern.
James encouraged the merchant skippers to
extend their voyages, to fully arm their vessels, to
purchase foreign ships of war, t6 import artillery,
and superintend the construction of large craft at ... OLD AND NEW EDINBURGH. [ Leith . of May. As history records, Gordon and Arran could not resist doing a little ...

he escaped them. Aware that a day of trial was
coming, and terrified by the unknown fate of Mar,
some of his numerous friends contrived to acquaint
him that in the Roads of Leith there lay a small
vessel laden with Gascon wine, by which he might
and also a strong rope, with a waxen roll
enclosing an unsigned letter, urging, "that he
should lose no time in escaping, as the king's
minions had resolved that he should die ere the
' morrow's sun set," but that the boats of the French
vessel would await him at the harbour of Leith.

he was confined in David's Tower, for we are told
it was one that arose from the northern verge of
the rock, where the height of the precipice seemed
to preclude the possibility of escape. He had
but one attendant (styled his chalmerchield) left
to wait upon him, and to this follower he revealed
his intention. From the vessel there came to
him two small runlets said to contain wine, and
they were camed to his apartment unexamined,

To lull suspicion, Albany invited the captain of

that the moment of fate had come !

of Badajoz is extolled by Napier, and who died
fort major of Edinburgh Castle. On the opposite
side of the path, a modest stone marks the spot
where lies Captain John Grant, the last survivor
of the old Peninsula Gordon Highlanders, who
covered the retreat at Alba de Tormes, and was
the last officer to quit the town.
Near it is the grave of Captain Charles Gray of
the Royal Marines, the genial author of so many
Scottish songs ; and perhaps one of the most interesting
interments of recent years was that of Lieutenant
John Irving, R.N. (son of John Irving, W.S.,
the schoolfellow and intimate friend of Sir Walter
Scott), one of the officers of the ill-fated Franklin
expedition, who died in 1848 or 1849, and whose
remains were sent home by Lieutenant Sohwatka,
of the United States Navy, and laid in the Dean
Cemetery in January, 1881, after a grand naval and
military funeral, in accordance with his rank as
Lieutenant of the Royal Navy."

-I' Christopher North" in Anne Street-De Quincey there-%. Bernard's Well-Cave at Randolph Cliff-Veitch's Square-Chuiches in.
the Localit$-Sir Henry Raebm-Old Deanhiugh-House.
ABOUT a hundred yards west by north of Randolph
Crescent this deep valley is spanned by a stately
bridge, built in 1832, after designs by Telford.
This bridge was erected almost solely at the expense
of the Lord Provost Learmonth of Dean,
to form a direct communication with his property,
with a view to the future feuing of the latter.
It was when an excavation was made for its northern
pier that the Roman urn was found of which
an engraving will be seen on page 10 of the first
volume of this work. Over the bridge, the roadway
passes at the great height of 106 feet above the
rocky bed of the stream. The arches are four in
number, and each is ninety-six feet in span. The
total length is 447 feet, the breadth thirty-nine feet
between the parapets, from which a noble view of
the old Leith village, with its waterfall, is had to
the westward, while on the east the eye travels
along the valley to the distant spires of the seaport.
That portion of it adjoining Stockbridge is still
very beautiful and picturesque, but was far more
so in other days, when, instead of the plain back
Views of Moray Place and Ainslie Place, the steep
green bank was crowned by the stately trees of
Drumsheugh Park, and tangled brakes of bramble
and sweet-smelling hawthorn overhung the water
of the stream, which was then pure, and in some
places abounded with trout. Unconfined by stone
walls, 'the long extent of the mill-lade here was
then conveyed in great wooden ducts, raised upon
posts. These ducts were generally leaky, and
being patched and mended from time to time, and
covered with emerald-green moss and garlands of
creepers and water-plants, added to the rural
aspect of the glen. Between the bridge and the
mineral well, a great saugh tree, shown in one of;
Ewbank's views, overhung the lade and footpath,.
imparting fresh beauty to the landscape.
'' At Stockbridge," says the Edinburgh Advertiser
for 1823, '' we cannot but regret that the rage for
building is fast destroying the delightful scenery
between it and the neighbouring village of the:
Water of Leith, which had so long been a prominent
ornament in the envGons of our ancient
city."
At the southern end of the bridge, where
Randolph Cliff starts abruptly up, dangerous landslips
have more than once occurred ; one notably
so in March, 1881, when a mass of rock and earth
fell down, and completely choked up the lade which
drives the Greenland, Stockbridge, and Canonmills,
flour-mills.
At the north-westem end of the bridge is the
Trinity Episcopal Church, built in 1838, from a.
design by John Henderson, in the later English
style, with nave, aisles, and a square tower. To the
north-eastward an elegant suburb extends away
down the slope until it joins Stockbridge, comprising
crescents, terraces, and streets, built between
1850 and 1877.

gables, covered with masses of luxuriant ivy, surrounded
by fine old timber, and near which lies
an interesting memorial of the statutes first made
in 1567, the days of the plague, of the bailies of
the muir-the toinb of some pest-stricken creature,"
forbidden the rites of sepulture with his kindred.
'' Here:" says Wilson, '' amid the pasturage of the
meadow, and within sight of the busy capital, a
large flat tombstone may be seen, time-worn and
grey with the moss of age ; it bears on it a skull,
surmounted by a winged sandglass and a scroll,
inscribed morspace . . , hora cadi, and below this
is a shield bearing a saltier, with the initials M. I. R.,
and the date of the fatal year, 1645.' The M. surmounts
the shield, and in all probability indicates
that the deceased had taken his degree
of Master of Arts, A scholar, perhaps, and
one of noble birth, has won the sad pre-eminence
of slumbering in unconsecrated ground,
and apart from the dust of his fathers, to tell
the terrors of the plague to other generations."
In that year the muir must have been open
and desolate, so the house of Bruntsfield
must have been built at a later date.
Bailie George Warrender of Lochend, an
eminent merchant in Edinburgh, having filled
the office of Lord Provost of that city in the
reigns of King William, Queen Anne, and
George I., was by the latter cr:ated a baronet
of Great Britain in 17 15, from which period
he represented the city in Parliament tili
his death ; but it is during the reign of
William that his name first comes prominently
before us, as connected with a judicial
sale of some property in the Parliament Close
in 1698, when he was one of the bailies, and
George Home (afterwards Sir George) was Lord
Provost.
In 1703 Lord Fountainhall reports a case :
James Fairholme against Bailie Warrender. The
former and other managers of '' the manufactory at
Edinburgh " had acquainted the latter that some
prohibited goods were hidden in two houses in the
city, and sought permission to search for and seize
the same, l h e bailie delayed till night, when
every man's house ought to be his sanctuary;
and for this a fine was urged of 500 marks, for which
the lords-accepting his excuses-" assoilzied the
bailie." In another case, reported by the same
lord in 1710, he appears as Dean of Guild in
a case against certain burgesses of Leith, that
savours of the old oppression that the magistrates
and deans of guild of Edinburgh could then
exercise over the indwellers in Leith, as part of
the royalty of the city.
Sir John Warrender, the bailie's successor, was also
a merchant and magistrate of Edinburgh ; and his
* As will be Seen from the engraving. Wilson would Seem not to have
deciphered the tombstone correctly. These lines are inscribed on the
tomb :-

rank at the famous battle of Minden, and died in
I 799, when King's Remembrancer in the Scottish
Court of Exchequer.
Within the last few years the parks around old
Bruntsfield House have-save a small space in its
immediate vicinity-been intersected, east, west,
north, and south, by stately streets and lines of
villas, among the chief of which are Warrender
Park Crescent, with its noble line of ancient trees ;
Warrender Park Road, running from the links to
Carlung Place ; Spottiswood and Thirlstane Roads ;
and Alvanley Street, so called from the sister of
Lord Alvanley, the wife, in 1838, of Captain John
Warrender of the Foot Guards.

IMIPERATC~OERSAI RIT. ITO. CELIO. HADKIANO
ANTONINOA.U G. Pro. PATRIP. ATRIB.
Although the Roman military causeway-o
which some fragments still remain--from Brittano
dunum to Alterva (i.e. from Dunbar ta Cramond
passed close to it, the Castle rock never appear!
to have become a Roman station; and it is suf
ficiently curious that the military engineers of thc
invaders should have neglected such a strong an(
natural fortification as that steep and insulatec
mass, situated as it was in Valentia, one of thei
six provinces in Britain.
Many relics of the Romans have been turnec
up from time to time upon the site of Edinburgh
but not the slightest trace has been found to indicatc
that it was ever occupied by them as a dwelling
place or city. Yet, Ptolemy, in his ? Geography,?
speaks of the place as the Casfrum alaturtz, ??2
winged camp, or a height, flanked on each sid<
by successive heights, girded with interinediatt
valleys.?? Hence, the site may have been a nativt
fort or hill camp of the Ottadeni.
When cutting a new road over the Calton Hill,
in 1817, a Roman urn was found entire; anothei
(supposed to be Roman), eleven and a half inches
in height, was found when digging the foundation
of the north pier ol
the Dean Bridge,
that spans a deep
ravine, through
which the Water ol
Leith finds its way
to the neighbouring
port. In 1782 a
coin of the EmperoI
Vespasian was found
in a garden of the
Pleasance, and is
now in the Museum
of Antiquities ; and
when excavating in ROMAN URN FOUND AT THE DEAN.
(Frwtn th Anfiqnanan Museum.) St. Ninian?s Row, on
the western side of
the Calton, in 1815, there was found a quan?tity of
fine red Samian ware, of the usual embossed character.
In 1822, when enlarging the drain by which
the old bed of the North Loch was? kept dry,
almost at the base of the Castle rock, portions of
ar. ancient Roman causeway were discovered, four
feet below the modem road. Another portion of
a Roman way, composed of irregular rounded
stones, closely rammed together on a bed of
forced soil, coloured with fragments pf brick, was
discovered beneath the foundations of the Trinity
College Church, when it was demolished in 1845.
The portions of it discovered in 1822 included a
branch extending a considerable way eastward
along the north back of the Canongate, towards the
well-known Roman road at Portobello, popularly
known as ? The Fishwives? Causeway.? ? Here,?
says Dr. Wilson, ?we recover the traces of the
Roman way in its course from Eildon to Cramond
and Kinneil, with a diverging road to the importanttown
and harbour at Inveresk, showing beyond
doubt that Edinburgh had formed a Zink between
these several Roman sites.??
Within a few yards of the point where this road
crossed the brow of the city ridge were built into
the wall of a house, nearly opposite to that of
John Knox, two beautifully sculptured heads of
the Emperor Septimius Severus and his wife Julia.
These busts, which Maitland, in his time (I~so),
says were brought from an adjacent building, Wilson
the antiquary conjectures were more probably
found when excavating a foundation; but under
the causeway of High Street, in 1850, two silver
denarii of the same emperor were found in excellent
preservation.
These busts were doubtless some relic of the
visit paid to the colony by Septimius Severus, for
Alexander Gordon, in his ? Itinerarium Septentrionale,?
published in 1726, says :-? About this
time it would appear that Julia, the wife of Severus,
and the greatest part of the imperial family, were
in the country of Caledonia; for Xephilin, from
Dio, mentions a very remarkable occurrence which
there happened to the Empress Julia and the wife
3f Argentocoxus, a Caledonian.??
Passing, however, from the Roman period, many
listant traces have been found of people who
lwelt on, or near, the site of Edinburgh, in what
may be called, if the term be allowable, the preiistoric
period.
In constructing the new road to Leith, leading
iom the centre of Bellevue Crescent, in 1823,
several stone cists, of circumscribed form, wherein
:he bodies had been bent double, were found;
ind these being disposed nearly due east and west,
were assumed, but without evidence, to have been
.he remains of Christians. In 1822 another was
ound in the Royal Circus, buied north and south ;
he skeleton crumbled into dust on being exposed,
ill save the teeth.
During the following year, 1823, several mde
tone coffins were discovered when digging the
oundations of a house in Saxe Coburg Place, near
;t. Bernard?s Chapel. One of them contained two
irns of baked clay, from which circumstance it was
#upposed that this was a place of interment, at the
ieriod when the Romans had penetrated thus far ... spans a deep ravine, through which the Water ol Leith finds its way to the neighbouring port. In ...

36 OLD AND NEW EDINBURGH. [Merchistom
captain named ScougaL
After a hard struggle, during which several were
killed and wounded, they stormed the outworks,
and set them on fire to smoke the defenders out of
the donjon keep ; but a body of the king's men
veyed to Leith, and hanged, while he had a narrow
escape, his horse being killed under him by a shot
from Holyrood Palace, Another conflict of a
more serious nature occurred before Merchiston
on the last day of the same month.
attack by firing forty guns from the Castle of Edinburgh.
The men of Scougal (who were mortally wounded)
fled over the Links and adjacent fields in all
directions, hotly pursued by the Laird of Blairquhan.
On the 10th of the subsequent June the
queen's troops, under George, Earl of Huntly, with
a small train of artillery, made another attack upon
Merchiston, while their cavalry scoured all the
fields between it and Blackford-fields now covered
with long lines of stately and beautiful villas-bringing
in forty head of cattle and sheep. By the time

elsewhere stated, was found dead in his chair in
November, 1799, and whose high reputation contributed
so largely in his time to the growing fame
of our University.
The institution was first suggested by the celebrated
Dr. Thomas Blacklock, who lost his sight
before he was six months old, and by Mr. David
Miller, also a sufferer from blindness ; but it was
chiefly through the exertions of Dr. David Johnsales
of the above kinds of work have in some years
amounted to ;C;IO,OOO, and in 1880 to &18,724 8s.,
notwithstanding the general depression of trade ;
but this was owing to the Government contract for
brushes.' Hence the directors have been enabled
to make extensive alterations and improvements to
a large amount.
The asylum has received a new and elegant
fapde, surmounted by stone-faced dormer windows,
a handsome cornice, and balustrade, with a large

Wilberforce, that the asylum was founded in 1793,

Square, into which nine blind persons were received;
but the public patronage having greatly increased,
in 1806 the present building, No. 58, was purchased,
acd in 1822 another house, No. 38, was
bought for the use of the female blind.
The latter are employed in sewing the covers
for mattresses and feather beds, knitting stockings,
Src. The males are employed in making mattresses,
mats, ,brushes, baskets of every kind, in weaving
sacking, matting, and " rag-carpets.'' No less than
eighteen looms are employed in this work. The

of Dr. David Johnstone, the founder, from the
studio of the late Handyside Ritchie.
The inmates seem to spend a very merry life,
for though the use of their eyes has been denied
them, they have no restriction placed upon their
tongues ; thus, whenever two or three of them are
together, they are constantly talking, or singing
their national songs.
A chapel is attached to the works, and therein,
besides regular morning worship, the blind hold
large meetings in connection with the various

themselves. The younger lads who come from the

craftsmen. Thus we see in the terraced slopes
illustrations of a mode of agriculture pertaining to
times before all written history, when iron had not
yet been forged to wound the virgin soil.?*
In those days the Leith must have been a broader
and a deeper river than now, otherwise the term
? Inverleith,? as its mouth, had never been given to
the land in the immediate vicinity of Stockbridge.
THE ROMAN ROAD, NEAR PORTOBULLO-THE ?? FISHWIVES? CAUSEWAY.?
(From a Draw+ 6y WaZh H. Palm, R.S.A.)
Other relics of the unwritten ages exist nea
Edinburgh in the shape of battle-stones ; but many
have been removed. In the immediate neigh.
hourhood of the city, close to the huge monolith
named the. Camus Stone, were two very large
conical cairns, named Cat (or Cdh) Stones, until
demolished by irreverent utilitarians, who had
found covetable materials in the rude memorial
stones.
Underneath these cairns were cists containing
human skeletons and various weapons of bronze
and iron. Two of the latter material, spear-heads,
are still preserved at Morton Hall. Within the
grounds of that mansion, about half a mile distant
from where the cairns stood, there still stands an
ancient monolith, and two larger masses that are in
its vicinity are not improbably the relics of a ruined
cromlech. ?? Here, perchance, has been the battleground
of ancient chiefs, contending, it may be,
with some fierce invader, whose intruded arts
startle us with evidences of an antiquity vhich
seems primeval. The locality is peculiarly suited
for the purpose. It is within a few miles of the
sea, and enclosed in an amphitheatre of hills ; it is
the highest ground in the immediate neighbourhood,
and the very spot on which the wamors of
a retreating host might be eFpected to make a
stand ere they finally betook themselves to the
adjacent fastnesses of the Pentland Hills.?
t On the eastern slope of the same hill there was found a singular relic
of a later period, which merits special notice from its peculiar characteristics.
It is a bronze matrix, bearing the device of a turbaued head, with
the legend SOLOMONB AR ISArounAd it Cin H ebrew characten j and
by some it has been supposed U, be a talisman or magical signet.
(?Prehist. Ann. Scat.")
The origin of the name ?Edinburgh? has proved
the subject of much discussion. The prenomen
is a very common one in Scotland, and is always
descriptive of the same kind of site-a doye.
Near Lochearnhead is the shoulder of a hill called
Edin-achip, ?? the slope of the repulse,? having
reference to some encounter with the Romans; and
Edin-ample is said to mean ?the slope of the
retreat.? There are upwards of twenty places
having the same descriptive prefix j and besides the
instances just noted, the following examples may
also be cited :-Edincoillie, a ?? slope in the wood,?
in Morayshire ; Edinmore and Edinbeg, in Bute ;
Edindonach, in Argyllshire ; and Edinglassie, in
Aberdeenshire. Nearly every historian of Edinburgh
has had a theory on the subject. Arnot
suggests that the name is derived from Dunea?in,
?the face of a hill ; I? but this would rather signify
the fort of Edin; and that name it bears in
the register of the Priory of St Andrews, in 1107.
Others are fond of asserting that the name was
given to the town or castle by Edwin, a Saxon
prince of the seventh century, who ?repaired
it;? consequently it must have had some name
before his time, and the present form may be a
species of corruption of it, like that of Dryburgh,
from Durrach-brush, ?the bank of the grove
of oaks.?
Another theory, one greatly favoured by Sir
Walter Scott, is that it was the Dinas Eiddyn (the
slaughter of whose people in the sixth century is
lamented by Aneurin, a bard of the Ottadeni); a
place, however, which. Chalmers supposes to be
elsewhere. The subject is a curious one, and ... forged to wound the virgin soil.?* In those days the Leith must have been a broader and a deeper river than ...

with whom she took up her abode. After having
effectually lulled all suspicion, she affected to remember
a vow she had made to visit the White
Kirk of Brechin (according to the '' Chronicles of
Pitscottie "), and bade adieu to the Chancellor overnight,
with many tender recommendations of the
young king to his care. She set forth betimes next
morning with her retinue, and baggage borne on
sumpter horses. In one of the arks or chests
:trapped on one of these she had the young king
concealed, with his own consert. He was thus
conveyed to Leith, and from thence by water to
Stirling, where she placed him in the hands of the
Regent Livingstone, while the haughty Douglas
kept aloof, as one who took no interest in the
petty intrigues around the throne. Livingstone
now unfurled the royal standard, levied troops, and
laid siege to the Castle of Edinburgh ; but the wary
Chanceflor, finding that he had been outwitted,
pretended to compromise matters by delivering
the keys of the gates into the hands of the king,
after which they all supped together in the great
hall of the fortress. Crichton was confirmed in his
ofice of Chancellor, and the other as regent and
guardian of the royal person, a state of affairs not
fated to last long.
Livingstone having quarrelled with the queen,
she carried off the young king again, and restored
him to the custody of the Chancellor in the Castle
of Edinburgh. Under the guidance of the Bishops
of Moray and Aberdeen, then resident in the city,
a conference was held in the church of St. Giles,
' making him and his rival joint guardians, which,
from their mutual dread and hatred of the Earl of
Douglas, led to an amicable arrangement, and the
young king chose the Castle as his future place of
residence.
The great house..of. Dauglas,had naw reached
the zenith of its baronial power and pride. The
earl possessed Annabdale, Galloway, and other extensive
dominions in. the southern counties, where
all men bowed to his authority. He had the
dukedom of Touraine and lordship of Longueville
in France. He was allied to the royal family of
Scotland, and had at his back a powerful force of
devoted vassals, trained to arms, led by brave
knights, who were ripe at all times for revolt and
strife.
'' The Regent and the Chancellor are both alike
to me," said he, scornfully ; " 'tis no matter which
may overcome, and if both perish the country
will be the better ; and it is a pleasant sight for
honest men to.see such fencers yoked together."
But soon after the potent Douglas died at
Restalrig-h June, 144o-and was succeeded by
his son William, then in his sixteenth year ; and
now the subtle and unscrupulous old Chancellor
thought that the time had come to destroy with
safety a family he alike feared and detested. In
the flush of his youth and p...12, fired by the
flattery of his dependents, the young earl, in the
retinue and splendour that surrounded him far
surpassed his sovereign. He never rode abroad
with less than two thousand lances under his
banner, well horsed, and sheathed in mail, and
he actually, according to Buchanan, sent as his
ambassadors to the court of France Sir Malcolm
Fleming and Sir John Lauder of the Bass, to
obtain for him a new patent of the duchy of
Touraine, which had been conferred on his grandfather
by Charles VII. Arrogance so unwonted
and grandeur so great alarmed both Crichton and
Livingstone, who could not see where all this was
to end.
Any resort to violence would lead to civil war.
He was therefore, with many flatteries, lured to
partake of a banquet in the Castle of Edinburgh,
accompanied by his brother the little Lord David
and Sir Malcolm Fleming of Cumbernauld. With
every show of welcome they were placed at the
same table with the king, while the portcullis was
suddenly lowered, the gates carefully shut, and
their numerous and suspicious train excluded.
Towards the close of the entertainment a black
bull's head-an ancient Scottish symbol that some
one was doomed to death-was suddenly placed
upon the board. The brave boys sprang up, and
drew their swords; but a band of Crichton's
vassals, 'in complete armour, rushed in from a
chamber called the Tiring-house, and dragged
forth the three guests, despite the tears and entreaties
of the young king.
I They were immediately beheaded-on the 24th
of November, I 440-according to Godscroft, '' in
the back court of the Castle that lyeth to the west"
(where the barracks now stand); in the great
hall, according to Balfour. They were buried in
the fortress, and when, in 1753, some workmen, in
digging a foundation there, found the plate and.
handles of a coffin all of which were pure gold,
they were supposed tp belong to that in which
the Earl of Douglas was placed. Singular to say,
Crichton was never brought to trial for this terrible
outrage. " Venomous viper ! I' exclaims the old
historian of the Douglases, "that could hide so
deadly poyson under so faire showes ! unworthy
tongue, unelesse to be cut oute for example to all
ages ! A lion or tiger for cruelty of heart-a waspe
or spider for spight ! " He also refers to a rude
ballad on the subject, beginning ... with his own consert. He was thus conveyed to Leith , and from thence by water to Stirling, where ...

amounted to twenty-three persons, including lettercarriers.
Ten years afterwards thirty-one were
required, and in 1794 the Inland Office, including
the letter-carriers' branch, consisted of twenty-one
persons.
The Edinburgh Post-office, for a long time after
its introduction and establishment, was conducted
solely with a view to the continuance and security of
the correspondence of the people, and thus it
frequently had assistance from the Scottish Treasury;
and if we except the periods of civil war, when a
certain amount of surveillance was exercised by the
Government, as a measure of State security, the
office seems to have been conducted with integrity
and freedom from abuse.
In 1796, Thomas Elder of Forneth, at one time
Lord Provost, was Deputy Postmaster-General; in
1799 and 1802, William Robertson, and Trotter,of
Castlelaw, succeeded to that office respectively.
It was held in 1807 by the Hon. Francis Gray,
afterwards fifteenth Lord Gray of Kinfauns ; and
in 1810 the staff amounted to thirty-five persons,
letter-carriers included.
In April, 1713, the Post-office was in the first
flat of a house opposite the Tolbooth, on the north
side of the High Street-Main's shop, as we have
stated. At a later period it was in the first floor
I ~ t ' a house near the Cross, above an alley, to which it
gave the name of the Post-ofice Close. From thence
it was removed to the Parliament Close, where its
internal fittings were like those of a shop, the letters
were dealt across a counter, and the whole out-door
business of the city was conducted by one lettercarrier.
After being for a time in Lord Covington's
house, it was removed to one already mentioned
on the west side of the North Bridge, and from
thence to a new office (now an hotel) on the Regent
Bridge in 1821. For ten years before that period
James twelfth Earl of Caithness was Deputy Postmaster-
General ; and in the year preceding the removal
there, the Edinbzcrgh WeeklyJournaZ says, that
by order of the Depute Lyon King of Arms, and
the Ushcr of the White Rod, the new coat of the
royal arms of Britain, put thereon, was torn
down and removed, "as derogatory to the independance
of Scotland," Le., wrongly quartered, giving
England precedence. Another and correct coat of
arms was substituted, and remained there till the
present building was erected.
In 1823, Sir David Wedderburn, Bart., of Ballendean,
was appointed Postmaster-General of
Scotland, an office afterwards abolished.
In 1856 the establishment on the Regent Bridge
consisted of 225 officials, of whom 114 were lettercarriers,
porters, and messengers, and the average
number of. letters passing through arid delivered
in Edinburgh daily was estimated at 75,000. The
nuniber of mail-bags received daily was 5x8, and
the number despatched 350. The amount of money
orders issued and paid showed a sum of A;1,758,079
circulating annually through the department in
Scotland.
On the 23rd of October, 1861, the foundationstone
of the new General Post-office was laid, on
the east side of the North Bridge, by the late
Prince Consort, amid much state and ceremony,
the letter-carriers, all clad for the first time in blue,
in lieu of their old scarlet, being drawn up in
double rank within the galleries which occupied the
site of the old Theatre and which were crowded
by a fashionable audience. This was almost the
last act of Prince Albert's public life, as he died
two months subsequently. At his suggestion the
crowning row of vases was added to the fapde.
As finished now, it stands behind a pavement
of Caithness slabs forty-three feet broad, and is
from designs by the late Mr. Robert Matheson, of
H.M. Board of Works in Scotland. Built of fine
white stone from Binny quarry, in the neighbourhood
of the city, its style of architecture is a
moderately rich Italian type. It presents an
ornamental main front of 140 feet to Princes
Street, and another equally ornamental front, or
flank, of 180 feet to the North Bridge, with a rearfront,
which is also ornate, of ~qo'feet, to the deep
valley where once the North Loch lay.
The flank to the Waterloo Place Buildings is
somewhat plainer than the others, and measures
160 feet. The edifice rises in the central part of
each of these three ornamental fronts, to the height of
two stately storeys above the street level, and has
at the corners wings, or towers, a storey higher, and
crowned with rows of massive and beautifully
sculptured vases. On the south front it descends
to the depth of 125 feet from the summit of
these towers, and thus presents a very imposing
appearance.
This. office, the chief one for all Scotland, cost,
including the site, Ar 20,000, and was first opened
for business on the 7th of May, 1866. The entire
staff, from t4e Surveyor-General downwards, consisted
in 1880 of 429 persons; whose salaries,
wages, and allowances, amounted to A38,427.
Connected, of course, with the head office, there
were in Edinburgh, Leith, and the suburbs, in
1880, receiving-offices and pillar-boxes."
