CARPENTER, Stephen Cutter, author, born in England; died about 1820. He was a journalist of ability, who was engaged as reporter of %he parliamentary proceedings during the trial of Hastings, and from his personal knowledge doubtless was enabled to make the great speeches of Sheridan on the Begum charge, as found in the " Select Speeches" of Dr. Nathaniel Chapman. In 1803 he came to the United States and settled in Charleston, South Carolina, where, in 1805, he established and published, with John Bristed, the "Monthly Register, Magazine, and Review of the United States." Later he edited the "Mirror of Taste, and Dramatic Censor," four volumes of which were published in Philadelphia during 1810-'1. It contained some very clever sketches of American actors, which were among the earliest productions of the artist Charles Robert Leslie. He was the author of "Memoirs of Jefferson, containing a Concise History of the United States from the Acknowledgment of their Independence, with a View of the Rise and Progress of French Influence and French Principles in that Country" (2 vols., New York, 1809), and "Select American Speeches, Forensic and Parliamentary, with Prefatory Remarks; a Sequel to Dr. Chapman's Select Speeches" (Philadelphia, 1815). Under the pen-name of Donald Campbell, he wrote "Overland Journey to India" (London, 1795 ; 2d ed., New York, 1809-'10) and "Letter on the Present Times" (1798).
