AINSWORTH'S LATIN DICTIONARY,

In One Volume, Imperial 8vo,
Price L.1, 11s. 6d.

Stereotyped, without abridgement, from the original folio Edition of
1752, with numerous additions, emendations, and improvements,
By the Rev. B. W. BEASTON, M.A.
Fellow of Pembroke College, Cambridge,

Revised and Corrected

By WILLIAM ELLIS, Esq. M.A. Of King's College, Aberdeen.

"Encouraged, we trust, by the deserved success of the edition of Johnson's Dictionary in one large 8vo volume, we have here its Latin counterpart-a publication on which we do not hesitate to bestow our most unqualified praise. Ainsworth's has always been, what it merited, a popular Thesaurus; and for ready reference to the student, none better could be constructed. There were, however, as there must be in all works of the kind, many errors, either original, or such as had crept in through careless reprinting; and we are glad to see a multitude of these rectified by the industry and judgment of the present editor. In other respects, also, great and notorious improvements have been effected-retrenchment of what was obsolete or unnecessary, and amplification where the nature of the explanations required it. Altogether (and we have looked carefully through many intricate examples to enable us to give this honest opinion)altogether we can most unreservedly recommend this volume as one of the best guides to early classical attainments, and also one of the completest Latin Dictionaries, that has ever courted public favour."-Literary Gazette.

HENRY'S BIBLE COMPLETE.

In three handsome vols. imperial 8vo, price L.3, 15s. in Cloth, AN EXPOSITION of the OLD and NEW TESTAMENT. By MATTHEW HENRY, V.D.M.

To which are prefixed, the Memoirs of the Life, Character, and Writings of the Author.

By J. B. WILLIAMS, Esq. F.S.A.

"It may almost seem presumptuous to venture upon any recommendation of the greatest English commentator on the Holy Scriptures; and having recently expressed a decided opinion as to the merits of Matthew Henry's Bible, it is quite unnecessary to repeat former commendations. This we will say, that every man ought to possess this great man's Commentary who can afford it. With this feeling strongly fixed on our minds, we are truly glad to introduce to our readers an edition of this extraordinary work, which, in compactness and economy, far surpasses every former attempt; and which demonstrates the ingenuity and taste of the enterprising printer who has supplied a desideratum so worthy of the age. The pub lic are greatly indebted to the man who thus places a valuable and expensive work within the reach of persons of ordinary means. The Life prefixed to this edition is the one lately furnished by Mr Williams, a descendant of Matthew Henry's family, and a sincere lover of all nonconformist memorials. The printer and the publisher have our warmest thanks."—Evan. Mag.

This Edition is also published in Parts, at 3s. each, and may be taken periodically, at the convenience of Purchasers; and for the further accommodation of the Public, this Work may be had in Weekly Numbers, at One Shilling each. Sold by all Booksellers in the United Kingdom.

LIFE on BOARD a MAN-OF-WAR; including

a Full Account of The BATTLE of NAVARINO.

By a BRITISH SEAMAN.

This little work consists of a succinct Narrative of the personal alventures of a British Sailor in his Majesty's Service, from his first tering on board till the period of his discharge after the Battle Navarino; and illustrates, by a series of sketches, the char cir manners, and habits of British Tars, who form so peculiar and inte resting a class of the community. It also embraces Sketches of the Maltese, Portuguese, &c. As the Narrator served in the Gence, a the Battle of Navarino, a full account is given of all that came under his own observation during that sanguinary conflict, and much new light is thrown on the conduct of that Vessel and its Commander, regarding which so great an interest has been excited in the public mind by the recent Court-Martial at Portsmouth.

NECROLOGY.-Died at Milan, on the 29th of September, Etienne Dumont, editor and translator of the works of Jeremy Bentham, at the age of seventy. He ranked high among those literary men who gain a reputation by becoming the mouth-pieces and assistants of men of genius. In his youth, he stood in this relation to Mirabeau, and latterly to our great jurist.-Died at Paris, on the 25th of September, J. Rondelet, architect, in the eighty-sixth year of his age. He published, in 1783, his "Traité Theorique et Pratique de l'Art de Batir." In 1794-5, he was appointed joint director in the erection of the various monumen's then executing in France, and had a share in the formation of the Ecole Polytechnique. He was subsequently appointed professor in the school of the Fine Arts. He S became latterly quite blind; and in this state the venerable old man might frequently be seen led by his son to the meetings of the Institute.

EDINBURGH PROFESSIONAL SOCIETY'S CONCERTS.-We are glad to understand that the Edinburgh Professional Society of Musicians intends giving four Subscription Concerts during the ensuing season. To say merely that this body has done more towards encouraging a taste for instrumental music in Scotland than any other Institution in this country, would be saying nothing;-it has, in truth, formed, and diffused a taste, which did not previously exist, and which, without its exertions, would never have existed. Yet, we regret to say, that the receipts of the three sets of Concerts it has already given have not been equal to the expenses. The total expenses consequent on the al Concerts of 1826, 1827, and 1828, were L.1475, 11s. 1d.; and the total receipts were only L.1392, leaving a deficiency of L.83, 11s. Id. The surplus of the receipts of the single Benefit Concert which was given last season was only L.45, so that the Society is still nearly L. 40 out of pocket. This is not creditable to the public of Edinburgh; but we sincerely hope that the Society's Subscription Book for the present season will be so well filled up, that their affairs will assume a more prosperous appearance, and the reproach of extending so niggard a patronage to this delightful branch of the fine arts be no longer applicable to the better classes of our townsmen.

T

CANOVA.-Canova's group of the Graces has just been purchased by Dr Clarke of Philadelphia, who has made a present of it to the Academy of Fine Arts of that city. The cost of removing this piece of sculpture to it place of destination will not be less than L.500. BARON HUMBOLDT.-Baron de Humboldt, the celebrated German traveller, is at present engaged in an expedition to the Ouralic Mountains, and Chinese Mongolia, where he and his colleagues are prosecuting their scientific researches. The Baron has inspected the gold and platina mines of the Oural Mountains, and reports that the working is in full activity. The produce of gold from these mines, in a single year, is 6000 kilogrammes (between 12 and 13,000 lbs.)

SINGERS AND RACE-HORSES.-It is a most exquisite compliment that the English nobility pay to the public singers, when they bestow their names upon their favourite horses. The Newmarket Chronicle informs us that at the late meeting, "Caradori was rode by G. Edwards," and the "Sister of Sontag by Arnull." We hope this distinction is not in reserve for Pasta, or Malibran, or any of those whose names are consecrated by genius. The effigies of some of our nobility have ornamented sign-posts extremely well; but the aristocracy may be excused if they omit persons of genius in returning the compliment of the publicans. Race-horses are beautiful creatures; but the enquiry who was the dam of Miss Sontag seems too nice, and the thought of Braham running for a cup too absurd.

WILKIE.-In allusion to the compliments which Wilkie paid to his native city-the Modern Athens-at the late civic dinner herc, we find the following peevish comment in the Court Journal :-'' It is a wonder that he did not discover that this all-rivalling city lies beneath a sky which might put that of Naples to the blush-is clothed in an atmosphere which an Arcadian might envy-and is, moreover, inhabited by heroes and houris, whom a Mahometan Elysium itself would be troubled to match. In fact, all these (and every thing else) may possibly be found there'-by the poetic fancy' to which our admired artist so naively refers them." This sapient critic, we presume, was never out of sight of the smoke of London, and is angry that a man of genius should find any thing to admire beyond the sound of Bow Bells.

Theatrical Gossip.-" Romeo and Juliet" has been performed every alternate night since the opening of Covent Garden. Miss Kemble's success increases with each repetition, and her fame as an actress of much genius may now be considered as established. The

A DIFFICULT POINT.-We are credibly informed, that the March of Intellect is making progress among the Old Light Burghers, and that a Committee has been actually appointed by that association, to take into serious consideration, whether the reading of the line by the precentor during the singing of the Psalm should not be dispensed with? This practice is considered by some of the members as a very great innovation on the "wisdom of our ancestors," and is likely, we understand, to create as great a schism among them as the Organ Controversy has caused among the Relief Communion.

[ocr errors]

first new piece to be produced at this Theatre, is a tragedy by Mr Thomas Wade, author of "Woman's Love." The work possesses attractions of a rather peculiar kind, as the two principal characters, father and daughter, are Jews, and will be represented by Mr Kemble and his daughter. It was at first intended to bring out this piece im mediately; but the advice of friends has induced the manager to determine on letting Miss Kemble play Belvidera first. * Venice Preserved" is therefore in preparation, and will be the second play in which Miss Kemble will act.-The petite comedy of the "First of May," which we noticed last Saturday, continues to be played successfully. It is from the pen of Miss J. Hill, sister of Mr Benson Hill, formerly of the Edinburgh Theatre, and authoress of "Holiday Dreams, and other poetical pieces, which have attracted some share of attention.-Mr Lister's tragedy of "Epicharis" seems to be increasing in popularity, chiefly in consequence of the fine acting of Young, who plays Subrius Flavius, "the noblest Roman of them all," and of Miss Philips, who sustains the part of Epicharis, a Greeian freedwoman, betrothed to Flavius. Since the re-opening of the Adelphi, Messrs Matthews and Yates have been exceedingly prosperous, although they have lost the valuable assistance of T. P. Caoke. It is said that they are about to bring over to the Adelphi a huge ele phant, whose performances have been attracting immense crowds to the Cirque Olympique at Paris. This will be a novel sort of "star." -The Haymarket closed last week, after a profitable season.-Jones has not appeared a second time at Covent Garden, and considering his success on his debut, we cannot help thinking this strange. There must be a cause for it behind the curtain-A Miss Mordaunt has made a successful first appearance at Drury Lane, in the character of Widow Cheerly. She is said to possess qualities calculated to make her an excellent actress in genteel comedy.-Kean has been performing to rather indifferent houses at Newcastle.-A provincial paper announces that "it will be impossible to open the Cardiff Theatre this season, the late rains having inundated it to the depth of nearly six feet, and the water being at present above the stage." Managers sometimes boast of exhibiting "rcal water," but an overflowing house of this description is by no means desirable.-Pasta and Moscheles are to perform at Copenhagen in the course of the ensuing winter.-Braham, who takes his benefit here this evening, proceeds shortly to Dublin.

THE EDITOR IN HIS SLIPPERS, No. V. in our next; also, LET TERS FROM PARIS, No. I.; and reviews of Lothian's Historical Atlas, the Jew Exile, and other new works.

We shall be glad to receive one or two more Sketches by the "Officer of H.M.S. Cambrian," that we may better judge of the interest they will be likely to possess.-"A Queer Yarn, blow me !" is a spirited tale, but, we regret to say, it is nearly one-half too long for us, and it could not well bear curtailment.-"Thoughts and Scenes, No. I." shall have as early a place as possible;-we shall be glad to hear soon again from their author.-The Fragment of a Lecture, &c.,” though rather too political for our columns, will appear elsewhere. It will give us pleasure to hear again shortly from the same quarter. -Some remarks concerning the very laudable Institutions in Dunbar and Haddington in our next.

"The Song of the Exile," by "W. A." of Glasgow, and "The Bankrupt," by "J. B." of Paisley, shall, if possible, have a place. The verses by our fair friend, entitled “An Old Maid's Complaint," are clever but unequal. We like the following stanza:

"O give me back the friends I loved,
With whom I've wander'd free,
When lovers round about me popp'd
Like apples from a tree:

We used to sit at night and talk
Of their sad knowing ways,

And say- Do you really think it true That all the men wear stays?""

The lines by our other fair Correspondent. "A." though pretty, hardly come up to our standard." A Jacobite Relic" scarcely breathes sufficiently the spirit of the olden time.-The Lines" To -" by "G. S.," "The Slave," and the "Very Mournful Ditty" from Glasgow, will not suit.us.
