and certainty of ordinary Print.~This is saying a good deal for itself, but the title-page is very fairly borne out. It is the best book on the subject we have seen, and a decided improvement upon many of the slow systems extant.

Memoirs of the celebrated Eugene Aram, who was executed for the Murder of Daniel Clarke in 1759 ; with some Account of his Family and other Particulars, collected, for the most part, above Thirty Years ago. By NORREYSON SCATCHERD, Esq., Author of the “ History of Morley," &c.The life of this extraordinary man has long been the subject of controversy with reference to his guilt or innocence. The author of this curious little book has taken uncommon pains in the elucidation of the mysterious subject, and his views are given with remarkable earnestness. The subject has lately been revived in the public mind by the silly discussion of the philosophers at Newcastle on Eugene Aram's skull. Mr. Scatcherd seems to say that the real skull was lost sight of in London many years ago.

THE COMMERCIAL RELATIONS OF THE COUNTRY.
Considerable activity prevails in the cotton market. The harvest has been happily secured during the late favourable weather. There can be no doubt but that the facilities afforded by the establishment of steam navigation between this country and America will be productive of the most important consequences to both countries. On each occasion, we understand, there have been more passengers for the steam-ships than could be conveyed. The effect also of our railroads is beginning to be felt.
The alterations in the mail communications between London and the West Riding of Yorkshire, which are about to take place in consequence of the whole line of railway between London and Manchester being opened, will, it is understood, be made on the quarter-day, the 5th of October, when the morning mail bags for Rochdale, Halifax, Bradford, and Leeds, will leave London at nine or ten o'clock in the morning viâ Manchester, and will be forwarded by the Manchester and York mail, which leaves Manchester at eight o'clock in the evening of that day, so that the morning letters and papers from London, which are despatched on the forenoon of one day, will arrive in Leeds at two o'clock in the morning of the following day. Already the London morning papers, by an arrangement with the railway proprietors, arrive in Leeds, by the Manchester mail, about sixteen hours after their publication in London.
