J. ” The first article declares the in- dependenceof Iceland (Island er laust og lidugt frá Dan- merkur Ríkisrádum).—-This is one of tlie documents, nów become rare, connected witli tlie so-called “ Jörg- ensen Revolution” of 1809. In January of tliat year au armed Euglish trading vossel, tlie Clarcnce, arrived at Reykjavík. The supercargo wislxed to establisli a mer- cantile liouse, but, in consequence of recent action taken by tlie Danish government, the authorities refused hirú a licence. Nevertlieless iio landed his wares; owing liowever to tlie bad scason and to liis mismauagemont, affairs failed of success. Ji’owards Spring tlie ship re- turned to Great Britain, leaving tlie supercargo in charge of tlie remainiug wares, but taking witli it tlie ship’s interpreter, a native of Copenliagen, named Jörgen Jörg- ensen. Early in May the Governor-general of Iceland, CountTrampe, returned to Reykjavik from Copenhagen, and learned of tlie enforced establisliment of the new trading-house. He, of course, could not approve it, but, to provide for similar cases, he entered iuto a cou- vention with Captain Francis John Nott, of II. M. brig liovcr, whicli arrived in the harbor about tbis time, tlie provisious of whicli werc to regulate tlie intercourso betwoen tlie inhabitants of tbe island and the subjects of Great Britain so long as the existing war lasted. Captain Nott sailed away, and some days iater came to Reykjavík tlie armed trading-vessel Margarct and Anne, of 10 guns, under the command of the captain of the Clarence, and haviug on board Mr. Samuel Plielps, llie owner of tlio waros previously brought to Iceland by the iatter ship, and the interpreter Jörgensen. On June 25th a body of armed sailors suddenly landed from the Margaret and Annc, the Governor-gencral was arrested and taken on board the vessel, aud tlie Danish government was announced to be at an end. The agreement with Captaiu Nott was deciared to be void, and various arrosts and confiscations followed, the new ruler, Jörgensen, taking up his quarters in tlie governor-general’s official residence. A small for- tificationwas built commandiug the town. Tlienewgov- erument lasted until the fortunate arrival, about tho middle of August, of II. M. man-of-war, the Talbot, tlie captain of which (tho Ilon. Aiexander Jones) restored tlie Dauisli authority (seo no. 86), and Jörgcnsen and liis English associates returned to England. A com- plete account of tliis abortiv’e attempt to separate Iceland from Denmark will be found in tlie ‘ Journal of a Tour in Iceland, in the Snmmer of 1809 ’ (2d ed., London 1813, 2 vols—see especially Appendix A to the second volume) by the naturalist, William Jackson Hooker, who reaciied the island as a passenger on tlie Margarct and Annc, but who, of course, took no part in the revolutionary enterprise. A rare Danisli pamphlet on tlio same sub- ject is entitled ‘ Jörgen Jörgensens Usurpation i Island i Aaret 1809.—Historisk fremsat, og med nogle faa Be- mærkningerledsaget af S. Scliulesen.—Kiöbenbavn, 1832. Trykt, paa Udgivereus Forlag, lios Jacobseu, Spring- garde No. 31.’ (8°., ff. 2, pp. 48).—Au account from the
