Samnel Warren, an English author, born at Racre, Denbighshire, May 23, 1807. He began the study of medicine at Edinburgh, but in 1828 entered as a student at the Inner Temple, London, and in 1837 was called to the bar. In 1830-'31 he contributed to "Blackwood's Magazine " " Passages from the Diary of a late Physician," which attracted wide attention and were supposed to be true. His more celebrated work, "Ten Thousand a Year," begun in "Blackwood's Magazine" in 1839, is written strongly in the interest of the conservative party in England. It was followed by the far inferior novel "Now and Then" (1847). In 1851, on the opening of the crystal palace, he published an allegorical poem, "The Lily and the Bee." In 1854 his shorter contributions to "Blackwood's Magazine" were published in two octavo volumes called "Miscellanies, Critical and Imaginative." Mr. Warren has also published " A Popular and Practical Introduction to Law Studies" (1835; 3d ed., rewritten and enlarged, 1863; Albany, N. Y. 1870); "Select Extracts from Blackstone's Commentaries, with a Glossary, Questions, and Notes" (1837); "The Opium Question" (1840); "Moral, Social, and Professional Duties of Attorneys and Solicitors" (1848); "Manual to the Parliamentary Law of the United Kingdom " (1852); "The Intellectual and Moral Improvement of the Present Age" (1853); and "Labor, its Rights, Difficulties, Dignity, and Consolations" (1856). His literary works have been published in five volumes (1853-'5). In 1851 Mr. Warren was made queen's counsel, and from 1854 to 1874 he was recorder of Hull. In 1856 he was elected to parliament for Midhurst, and was reelected in 1857, but resigned in 1859, being made one of the masters in lunacy.
