A View of the

The respectable Editor of the Quarterly Journal, entitled, "The Scottish Episcopal Review and Magazine," has, in the Number for March, given the following account of this Volume.
"There is much information and amusement in this stately volume,-more, indeed, of both, than we have met with in any similar work these many years. The events of 1820, no doubt, were of the most interesting nature. The death of one King, the accession of another, and, above all, the trial of Queen Caroline, give a degree of variety and importance to the annals of that period, which, for the sake of national tranquillity, we can have no wish to see repeated.
"The character of our late Sovereign, and the political features of his reign, are given with great ability and fairness. The history, too, of the Bill of Pains and Penalties, to which we have just alluded, is narrated with striking impartiality: the facts of the case being candidly given, and the speeches on both sides reported with an equal fulness and accuracy. In regard to France, Spain, Portugal, and Naples, the progress of the revolutionary spirit, still so active among our neighbours, is traced with an able pen, and connected throughout with the symptoms, every where so prevalent, of a new era of political conflict with which Europe appears to be threatened.
The Chronicle' derives its chief merit from the judicious abridgment of its Miscellaneous Notices. The conspiracy of Thistlewood and his adherents, as well as the subsequent trial and execation of these brutal anarchists, already fast becoming a mere historical reminiscence, occupy, of course, a conspicuous place in it,
"The Philosophical and Literary' department, is a great improvement on the plan of the work in general, and, in the present volume, exhibits a mass of information not any where to be found condeused in the same compass. Every thing remarkable, brought to light, during the year 1820, in the several branches of Natural History, Chemistry, Antiquities, Statistics, and general learning, is here accurately described and recorded.
"But we are particularly pleased with the liberal and manly spirit which pervades the whole work. There is no party bias manifested, no animosity against individuals, whatever be their views or opi
nions; and there is every where conspicuous the love of country, founded upon a just perception of our invaluable privileges as British subjects, as well as of the manifold hazards attending precipitate innovation in the principles of government. In short, it is a work to which we cannot too heartily wish success."
The Editor of "The British Critic," in the Number for April last, gives the following commendation.
"We have never opened any similar volume so thoroughly according with the notions which we have framed to ourselves of what an Annual Register ought to be, as that which is now before us.
"We heartily rejoice to find a work of so much importance, conducted with so much judgment and diligence; and we doubt not, that the succeeding volumes will fully realize the high promise held out by the present."
The Volume for 1821 is preparing for Publication, and will be ready on the 2nd of December next.

"The volume before us is a very useful, wellmanaged publication, filled with a variety of information more or less valuable; discussing subjects that come closely home to the concerns, thoughts, and anxieties, of the labouring classes; suggesting plans of economy, and directing how to turn to the best account the opportunities and small advantages of their station. It is a publication that was much wanted. We recommend it heartily, and exhort our benevolent friends to promote its circulation in the country to the utmost of their power."

"It has fallen to our lot, since we commenced our labours, to recommend to the attention of our readers, a great variety of what are called important publications; but we are very far from certain, and we wish to speak without exaggeration,-whether any work has been brought before our notice for many years, involving the possibility of more important results than is to be found in the small volume which now lies before us."
British Critic, Dec. 1821.
