Art. XXVIII. Spanische und Portugiesische Miszellen. Spanish and

Portuguese Miscellanies.-A new Journal under this Title, edited by Frederic Benjamin Bucher, Secretary of the Electoral-Saxon Cormercial Deputation, in Dresden, has been published at Leipzig, by Weigel, from the beginning of the present Year. A Number, consisting of six Sheets, is to appear regularly, every two Months, aud three Numbers will form a Volume.

THE Editor, who has long been known to the public as an admirer and cultivator of Spanish literature, is indebted chiefly to the liberal indulgence of an exalted patron, for the access to, and free use of, a considerable collection of original Spanish works, in all departments of Science, which have lately been brought to Dresden. Among these are the works of Brick, Capmeny, Casiri, de Castro, Corvalan, Foronda, &c.; the Man morial Literario of Madrid, the first two volumes of the Geographical Historical Lexicon of Spain, published by the Royal Historical Academy, the works of the Economical Societies of Madrid and Segovia, the colJections of novels, plays, and poems. The access to these works with which Mr. Bucher has been indulged, the use of the Electoral library at Dresden, which is tolerably well furnished in the departmevt of Spanish and Portuguese literature, the possession of some original works in both Janguages, which be bimself has collected, and the opportunity which his connections with the mercantile world afford him of procuriug in. telligence, and the assistance which he has engaged from competent coadjutors, in the departments of poetry and romance; these, and various other circunstances, enable him to present his countrymen with an entertaining and instructive miscellany. --It will consist chiefly of interesting extracts, and sometimes entire translations, from the multifarious Works which are placed at his disposal.

sium. 12mo. pp. 276. 1805. WE perceive with pleasure, that our transatlantic friends are increasing

ly diligent and successful in their literary pursuits. Editions of seteral Roman classics have, within these two years, been reprinted at the American press; among which are, the Eclogues, Georgics, and Æneid, of Virgil ; Merouille's Select Orations of Cicero, the Works of Sallust, and the Commentaries of Cæsar. Most of these, however, are-Dauphin editions; and the undertaking has been more indebted to motives of economy, than to a spirit of emulation. The present work is the first new edition of a classical author, that has appeared in the United States. Its plàn, and general accuracy, are creditable to the abilities and diligence of the editor. The text is amended from the Dauphin edition, by a collation with Havercamp's, Hunter's, Didot's, Maittaire's, &c. The notes are partly, and, indeed, too liberally, copied from Crispinus, the Dauphin editor; the most valuable are those which have been furnished by Havercamp, Minellius, Gruterius, Gronovius, &c. The work is also enriched with various readings, “Non quidem,” says the editor, "a codicibus MSS. quorum apud nos non extat aliquis, sed ex editione Sallastii splendida Havercampiana.”

Art. XXXI. A Selection of Pleadings in Civil Actions, subsequent to

the Declaration, with occasional Annotations on the Law of Pleading. By Joseph Story. Salem. 8vo. pp. 695. 1805. IT may

law adopt for their code of jurisprudence, the common law of England, together with such statutes. judicial decisions, and legal treatises, as existed before the declaration of independence. On points of political and fiscal economy, they must evidently differ. "English statutes occasionally, and decisions, subsequent to that period, are cited as corroborating arguments, but not as uncontrovertible authorities. Such parts of their code as are exclusively American, are almost confined be their own statutes. Judicial opinions and decisions are less valued, because they have never been recorded ; and perhaps the pursuit of wealth, or the love of leisure, would still prevent the compilation of reports, had not the government recently appointed an officer for that purpose. It may be worth remarking, tliat in the infancy of our own jurisprudence, the same plan was adopted, and we are indebted to prothonotaries, appointed by the crown, for the Reports, which under the name of Year Books, extend from Ed. II. to Hen. Vill.

Mr. Story's book may be found very useful to the junior student as a compilation for frequent reference. The precedents of pleadings appear to be copied from American records, or English books, with such alterations as Mr. S. conceives to be locally necessary. ---On their propriety we are not to decide, We cannot place much reliance on his professional science only knowing it, as we do, from his compilation of notes and dissertations, which is very common place and superficial.

Weh ave just received, too late for review in the present Number, an interesting pamphlet very recently published at New York. It is a “! Message froin the President of the United States, communicating discoveries made in exploring the Missouri, Red River, and Washita, by Captains Lewis and Clark, Dr. Sibley, and Mr. Dunbar; with a statistical account of the countries adjacent.". It was read in Congress, Feb. 10, 1806. We hope to lay it before our readers very shortly, and at the same time to offer a few remarks on the general state of American literature.
