Art. 1.-1. A Portraiture of Domestic Slavery in the United States:

with Reflections on the Practicability of restoring the moral Rights of the Slave, without impairing the legal Privileges of the Possessor; and a Project of a colonial Assylum for free Persons of Colour: including Memoirs on the interior Traffic of Slaves, and on Kidnapping: Illustrated with Engravings. By JESSE TORREY,

Jun. Physician, &c. Philadelphia. 1817. 8vo. pp. 94. 2. A brief View of the actual Condition and Treatment of the Negro

Slaves, in the British Colonies; in a Letter to a Member of the Imperial Parliament. By Captain HENDERSON, late 2d Battalion 44th Regiment, and Assistant-Quarter-Master-General.

London. 1816. 8vo. pp. 56. 'FIERI potest (says an obscure proser, whom, we suspect, Dr.

Torrey and Captain Henderson have never come across), ut recte quis sentiat, et id, quod sentit, polite eloqui non possit. 'Sed mandare quemquam litteris cogitationes suas, qui eas nec disponere, nec illustrare possit, nec delectatione aliqua allicere lec

torem, hominis est intemperanter abutentis et otio, et litteris. 'Itaque suos libros ipsi legunt cum suis, nec quisquam attingit, * praeter eos, qui eandem licentiam scribendi sibi permitti volunt. All this might have been true, when Cicero wrote; but, at present, a very sad class of people have to touch' such books-besides those who read them through sympathetic companionship in misery. The Reviewers must toil through them, whether they be rightly arranged, or happily illustrated, or afford him pleasure of any sort: and it is not the least cause of our proverbial fastidiousness, that we are condemned to the perusal of books, which contain nothing but a repetition and see-saw of stale cogitations, and which have no other effect, than to rock all one's faculties to leep. _This is the sort of book which has been compiled by Dr. Jesse Torrey; a very well-intentioned personage, who, most assuredly, has the good of all mankind at heart,--but who, we must be permitted to think, has no more right to publish books, than we have to administer catharticks.
