He returned to England about 1845, edited the Leeds "Times," became principal of the People's college, Huddersfield, Yorkshire, in 1846, and in 1854 was lecturer to the Yorkshire union of mechanics' institutes and literary societies. He has been an inmate of an insane asylum in New Jersey since 1873. Mr. Phillips wrote generally under the pen-name of "January Searle," and among other works published " Chapters in the History of a Life" (1849); " Life of Ebenezer Elli-on" (1850);" Memoirs of William Wordsworth" (1852); "The Gypsies of the Dane's Dike" (1855); and "Chicago and her Churches" (Chicago, 1868).
