paragraph beneath is from the Times of Nov. 16, 1832.

Yesterday evening the members of the City of London
Artists' Society held their first meeting for the season at the Lon-
don Coffee house. The intention of this Society is merely to afford
artists and amateurs an opportunity of assembling together for the
purpose of conversation, and of exhibiting their works before they
are brought more unequivocally under public notice. Many spe-
cineas of the talents of the members were last night observable
in the room; but as anything like detailed criticism on such an
occasion would be out of place, we will merely announce that a
proof of an engraved portrait of Sir Walter Scoil, from a painting
by Lawrence, excited general attention and no less admiration.
The portrait, we understand, was executed about twirteen years
since, though it was not generally knowu that our great portrait
painter bad ever had the Author of Waverley for a sitier, and
much regret has frequently been expressed at the supposed
omission. In con paring this portrait of Sir Walter with those
with which the public are already familiar, one is struck with the
immense superiority of Lawrence over all his competitors in the
power which he possessed of seizing upon and conveying to his
canvas the most intellectual expression of his subjects. The ad-
mirers of the novelist will be pleased to find that the look of sly-
ness, nay, almost of low cooning, which his less skilful !imners
have attributed to bim, and which they wandered how such a man
could ever possess, was not the real character of his head, but
that its true expression was that of calm reflection, but with an
eye which woulu evidently brighten up at the first merry thought
that might occur to his mind. Tbe engraving, which, when
finished, will be one of the best that has been produced for a long
time, is executed by Mr. Robinson, the engrayer of the Wolf
and the Lamb,'11

By SIDNEY HALL. This excellent work of which we have before had occasion to speak in terms of unqualified commendation-is now completed In three thick octavo volumes, containing many thousand pages; and we take the opportunity of again recommending it to generae notice, as the very best of its kind that has hitherto been produced, or that, in fact, need be produced : for all that can with advantag! be included in a work of this nature is to be found here, anything more would have rendered it at once cumbrous, and unattainable at a moderate price; and anything less would have impaired its utility as a work of inmediate reference, It contains fifty-four quarto maps; its type is clear, and sufficiently large for any reader; and the care and expense which have evidently been bestowed in getting it up, claim that extensive encouragemeni, in the absence of which its projectors cannot meet with fair remuneration, and the public ook for similar undertakings in future."--Court Journal.

“ The advantages of this Dictionary above any other are numerous. It gives the very latest statistical facts, drawn from the last
surveys, and from local inquiries; it separates the mere details of distances, population, fairs, &c. from the general account of places,
by the adoption of a sinaller type, which has all the utility of the tabular form, without the inconveniences attending tabular reference;
and it carefully embodies, up to the period of publication, such matters of information as, under the changes effected by the Reform
Bill, are not to be found collected elsewhere. We greatly commend the diligence, correctness, and skill of the editor, and congra-
talate him on the close of his arduous labours, which have added to the Englishman's library a work of the highest value and im-
portance."- Allas.
