The Finance Report is not yet in course of delivery, to enable us to state the last year's eaponditure correctly. In some copies of our last, the deficiency of revenue below the expenditure was, by an error of the press, printed 28 instead of 18 millions.

The copies signed C. S. were correct.

Some Correspondents, who have adopted the statements of empirical writers in a

certain Review, have addressed us on the subject of the late hot weather, ascribing the undue heat to the undue, melting of the Polar ice, forgetting that proofs are wanted of the fact, and that the melting of ice abstracts heat from surrounding bodies instead of increasing it. Even the venerable President of the Royal Society is quoted in support of these silly doctrines. The great heat of the Summer, at any rate, proves our assertion, that no change of solar seat has taken place on our globe; although this formed o "... part of the statement of the meteorological iseacres who write in the Review in question. * are not aware of the co alluded to by G. of Dudley.

Vol. IX, and the Index may be had separately, price 21, 2s. o “Where such a mass of instructive, useful, and entertaining communications on literary characters and subjects can elsewhere be found, it would not be easy to determine. There is scarcely a personage in the last Century, eminent for learning and talents, there is hardly a Work which has excited the curiosity and attention of Scholars, of whose Author and contents some information may not here be obtained.”—British Critic. *** Gentlemen who have not completed their Sets of this Work, (now becoming rare) are respectfully requested to do so without delay.

Price 12s. boards. *** The Provincial Glossary may be had separate, Price 3s. “The generality of readers must be pleased by the union of so much curious information, with such jocularity of humour. On the whole we have never seen a book of philological amusement put together in so original a style, or containing more unexpected, yet apposite remarks, and authorities from a variety of books.” British Critic, 1808. “The Work before us is highly valuable and instructive, as unfolding to us, from obsolete and forgotten archives, an ample store of new and entertaining matter; and does great credit to the learning and indefatigable industry of the Author, who is equally entitled to admiration as an Antiquary, an Historian, and a Polemic.”—New Annual Review 1802. “Whether the fashionable world will take the hints here given by the late ingenious Mr. Pegge, to correct their expressions, and to guard against the perversion of grammar, we cannot pretend to say ; but of this we are confident, that, if they read this Essay, they will be amused by the playfulness of his verbal criticisms, and by the various anecdotes with which he has enlivened his pages.” Monthly Review, July 1805.

VATIONS on various Authors and Subjects. (Compiled by the late very Learned and Reverend Dr. PEGGE.) With a copious Index. Second Edition, 8vo, price 12s. “Whether as an Antiquary, a classical, poetical, and historical Critick, a Biographer, or Enquirer into the Beauties and Niceties of Grammar and Languages, we find every where that Dr. PEGGE's remarks are not only striking and useful, but original; and in this last respect we have little besitation in preferring the Anonymiana to the greater part of the Works of this description which have been lately published either at home or abroad. There is scarcely a taste, among the various divisions of human liking, that will not find something appropriate and gratifying. It would be impossible to withhold, in these times of levity, just praise from a Work that so ably combines “light reading' with “serious thinking’.”—Gent. Mog. 1809.

Author of the History of Gloucestershire, &c. A considerable Portion of this Work having been re-written, with the view of introducing large and important accessions from the antient Chroniclers, and especially from Du CANGE (a Work as recondite as MS. to all but our first Antiquaries); the present Edition, enlivened by Reflections suited to History, is adapted, not to the Antiquary only, but to the general Reader, as interest, curiosity, and entertainment, have been studiously consulted. The First Edition of this Work was most favourably noticed by all the Reviews. “Mr. Fosbrooke has given to the publick, chiefly from MS authorities, a comprehensive view of the character and manners of Monastic Life; and has brought together many facts, which serve to cast a light on the history of human nature. The manners of the period which furnished his materials were so entirely different from those of the present times, that the relation of them is highly gratifying and instructive.—This Work contains much curious and original information.” - - - British Critic 1802. *** See this Work reviewed in the Gentleman's Magazine for January, February, and March; and also in the British Critic for February 1818.

The Second Edition.—These “ Illustrations” form a Part of the Third Volume of Hogarth's Works; but are likewise printed, for separate distribution, in 8vo, embellished with a Portrait, price 4s. *...* The Works of the inimitable Hogarth have not only been sought for with avidity in his native country, but have been admired by every civilized nation in the World. Since his death various Editions of his Works have, from time to time, been offered to the Publick. But, without attempting to depreciate any of the former Editions, it is presumed that the present Work will, from its elegance and cheapness, stand unrivalled.—It is highly proper, however, to add, that these Three Volumes contain Two HUNDRED AND TEN PLATEs, a great many of which are not to be found in any other Collection of Hogarth's Works.
