"Mr. Thackeray, by collecting his earlier writings In the volumes before w*, [4 vols. cr. 8vo, Lon., 1855-57,] has done a service both to himself and the world. ... It is impoHsihlu to read theae volumes without seeing what a growing mind that of the author i«."—Lon. Athen., 1867,1220.

20. The Virginians; a Tale of the Last Century, with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by the Author, Lon., 8vo, in monthly Parts: i., Oct. 31,1857-xxiv., Oct. 1,1859: together, in 2 vols.

"'The Virginians* is a sort of continuation of'Esmond.' . . . 'The Virginians' is neither antiquarian, nor, in the strict sense, historical. It is an attempt to create a good story and good characters and at the same time to call from it* grave a pnst age, in which the writer happens, probably from his admiration and deep study of Fielding, to take a great interest. . . . In this hybrid sort of composition, between history and fiction, we think his powers misapplied. It is at liest an expenditure of strength fn a tour de, force. . . . To say that this novel will not rank with Mr. Thackeray's best works i* very slight blame; to say that it will rank with those of his works which are lea* good is BO slight praise."—Edin. Rer., Oct. 1869, (ex.) 438-46:1.

** A popular writer, Mr. Thackeray, in 'The Virginians,' has ventured to introduce Washington, in his youth, as a personage of fiction. The thought was rash and infelicitous, had the author succeeded in hi« daring attempt; but magnU exeidit man's.—and never was failure more complete. Mr. Thackeray takes the

satirical, the merely worldly, view of life and society ; he can take no other. His characters are compounded of many vices itnd few if any virtues ; or, if the virtues predominate, the result is a fool. He has never drawn a true anddiguifled woman, nor a gentleman of the highest type. He has no conception of that simplicity In which nobleness of nature most largely consists."—1'rksidknt C. 0.

"The sad failure of a man of genuine powers. . . . There is not one single touch to kindle fn the reader a spark of generosity or kindly feeling; not one word to awaken or stimulate a noble thought.

"Mr. Thackeray must look to his laurels.

The Cornhill Magazine, referred to above, was started by Messrs. Smith, Elder A Co., 65, Cornhill, London, with Mr. Thackeray (at an enormous compensation) as editor, Jan. I860, at one shilling per monthly number. Of No. 1 about 100,000, and of No. 2 about 70.000 oopies, were sold. Mr. Thackeray retained the editorship until April, 1862. See Lon. Athen., 1S60, i. 25; Lon. Lit. Budget, July 26,1862, 265, (Mr. Thackeray as an Editor.)

Mr. Thackeray added the Short Notices to the Sketches after the English Landscape-painters by L. Murvey, Lon. and Glasgow, 1850, em. fol., 2U., col'd, 42«., and contributed a piece entitled Sketches of Travel to Tho Victoria Regia, Dec. 1861, sup. r. Svo. The London Quarterly Review is to be added to the periodicals for which he has written. French versions of some of bis works have been published from time to time in the periodicals of Paris. In the United States the sale of his works up to 1853 had been, it was asserted, (see II. C. Carey's Letters on International Copyright, Phila., 1S53, 8vo, 43,) quadruple the sale in England.

The author of Jane Eyre was among the first to read the signs of the "coming man'* in Mr. Thackeray's earlier acknowledged writings.

"Why have I alluded to thin man? I have alluded to him, reader, because I think I nee in him an intellect profounder and more unique than his contemporaries have yet recognised; because I regard him as the first social regenerator of the day— as the very master of that working corps who would rent ore to rectitude the warped system of things: because I think that no commentator on his writings has yet found the comparison that unite him, the terms which rightly characterise his talent. They say lie in like Fielding; they talk of his wit, humour, comic powers. He reseinble.8 Fielding aft an eagle does a vulture; yielding con Id stoop on carrion, hut Thackeray never doe*. His wit is bright, his humour attractive,—but both bear the same relation to his serious genius that the inert' lambent sheet-lightning playing under the summer cloud does to thu electric deathspark hid iu its woinb."—Charlotte Bkoxtis.

We quote a few later opinion?:

'It in Thackeray's aim to represent life as it is actually and historically,—men and women as they are, in those situations in which they are ueuully placed, with that mix turn of good and evil and of strength and foible which is to be found in their characters, und liable only to those incidents which are of ordinary occurrence. He will have no faultless characters, no demigod*,—nothing but men and brethren. And from this it results that, when once he has conceived a character, he works downwards and inwards iu his treatment of it, making it firm and clear at all point* in its relations to hard fact, and cutting down, where necessary, to the very foundations." — David Masson: JHiitith Novelists und their Styles, (1859,) Lect. IV.: Dickens and Thackeray. See, ul.-o, Lect. III.

"It it were asked what one aspect of life Mr. Thackeray lias distinctively exhibited, the answer could be given in one word, —the trivial aspect. The characters he draws are, neither the be»t of men nor the worst, But the atmosphere of triviality which envelopes them all was never so plainly perceivable. He paints the world as a great Vuuity Fair, aud none ham doue that SO Well.

"The realism of Thackeray can hardly fail to have A good effect in fictitious literature. It represent* the extreme point of reaction against the laj*e idealism of the Minerva Press. It is a pre-ltaphaelite school oi novel-writing. And, a* pre-Kaphacliii-m is not to I* valued m itself so much as in being the passage to n new aud nobler ideal, the stern realism of Thackeray may lead the way to something better than itself."—PtfTiik Bavne: /Assays in Biography and Criticism, First Series, (18J7.) VII..: The Modem Novel: DickensBulwerThackeray.

"Mr. Thackeray's humour dies not mainly consist in the creation of oddities of manner, habitfor feeling, but in so representing actual meu and women a* to excite a sense of incouSruity in the reader's mind—a feeling that the follies and vices escribed are deviations from an ideal of humanity—always present to the writer. The real u described vividly with that perception of individuality which constitutes the artist; but the description impl es and suggests a standard higher than itself, not by atiy direct assertion of such a standard, but by an uuiiiiatakable irony. . . . No one could be simply amused with Mr. Thackeray's descriptions or his dialogues. A shame at one's own defects, at the delects of the world in which one was living, was irresistibly aroused along with the reception of the particular portraiture. But while he was dealing with his own age, his keen perceptive faculty prevailed, and the actual predominates fn his pictures of modern society."—Cskokqu Bkimlly; Essays, 180U

"There is one point in which Fielding is a model for all times, and in which Mr. Thackeray is his worthy disciple, and. we venture to think, perfectly his equal. That point is, style aud beauty of composition. The last century was certainly more studious, generally speaking, of form than ours. Yon may open any page ol Fielding at random, and read it with pleasure, without relereuce to the story or context, merely as a piece of exquisite writing. The same may lie said of Mr. Thackeray. . . . England in our day may regard it as some proof of her moral soundness that he*-greatest novelist is in all bis sentiments and sympathies the deadly enemy of hypocrisy, but the constant friend of virtue."— Edin. iter., Oct. l&V.*, (ex.) 4:;S-453.

"On one point the reviewer [uli supra] might have dwelt a little. He merely hints at the perfection of Thackeray's composition. Now, this is his strong point. He writes the "best aud purest English of any author now living."—II. 8uklton MacKKNzris, M.D., lt.C.L., Nov. 23,1850.

"He is, we should say, one of the healthiest writers who has attained celebrity since the days of Scott and Byron. His style —and a man's style is, aw it were, his mind's complexion—is'an index of it. Agreeable, manly, colloquial English.—the .English of cultivated men, but still with as little liookishness about it as possible,—such is the clear atmosphere we breathe in reading him. Very sparing of imagery, perfectly free from conceits, rarely touching the deep-toned chords of passion and sentiment, —he is always at once a master of himself, and never takes his eye off bis reader. . . . What powers he has are iu fair proportion with each other, and he has them all equally uuder control."—/-on. Athrn., Oct. 3, 185", 1229, 1230.

In Mr. Lewes's Life and Works of Goethe, 1855, 2 vols. 8vo, will be found a letter from Mr. Thackeray containing reminiscences of his residence at Weimar in his early years, and recollections of the great German poet. In July, 1857, Mr. Thackeray was an unsuccessful candidate—Cardwell 1085, Tbackcrny 1013 —for the representation in Parliament of the city of Oxford. This result we find it impossible to regret—desiring that the in at urer years of the graphic novelist and brill inn t essayist should be devoted to those historical researches to which he has been earnestly invited by one of his late critics, (sec Edin. Rev., Oct. 1859.) and trusting that there is some truth in the assertion (see Lon. Critic, March, 1861, notice of Lord Mncaulay's History of England, vol. v.) that he has accumulated materials for a History of England in the Reign of Queen Anne.

Since the above (with the exception of notices of new editions, &c.) was written, Mr. Thackeray has ceased to live.

"Suddenly," remarks the London Times of Dec. 2;"», 1863, "one of onr greatest literary men has departed. Never more shall the fine head of Mr. Thackeray, with iis muss of silvery hair, be seen towering among us. It was but two days ago that he might be seen at his club, radiant and buoyant with glee. Yesterday morning he was found dead in his bed. With all Ills high spirits, he did not seam well; he complained of illness; but he wax often ill, and he laughed off his present attack. lie tmid that he was about to undergo some treatment which would work a perfect cure in his system, and so he made li^ht of bis malady. He was suffering from two distinct complaints, one of which has now wrought his death. More than a dozen years ago, while he was writing * I'endennis.' it will be remembered that the publication of that work was stopped by his serious illness. He was brought to death's door; and he was saved from death by Dr. Elliotson, to whom, iu gratitude, he dedicated the novel when he lived to finish it. But ever since that ailment he ho* been subject every month or six weeks to attacks of sickne**, attended with violent retching. He was congratulating himself the other day on the failure of his old enemy to return, and then he checked himself, as if he ought not tnbetoosuteofa release from his plague. On Wednesday morning the complaint returned, and he was in great suffering all tiny. He was no better in the evening, and his servant, about the time of leaving him for the night, proposed to sit up with him. This he declined. He was heard moving about midnight, nnd he must have died between two and three iu the morning of yesterday. His medical attendants attribute his death to effusion on the brain. They add that ho had a very large brain, weighing no less than P.S]4 Ojs.

"He thus tfied of the complaint which seemed to trouble him least. He died full of strength and rejoicing, lull of plans and ho(>es. On Monday last he was congratulating himself on having finished four numbers of a new novel; be hail the manuscript in his pocket, and with a boyish frankness showed the last pages to a friend, asking him to read them and see what he could make of them. When he had completed fonr numbers more, he said, he would subject himself to the skill of a very clever surgeon, and be no more an invalid. In the fulness of his powers ho has fallen before a complaiut which gave him no alarm."

Sinee his death have appeared—25. Denis Duvnl, N, York, 1S64, 8vo; Lon., 1867, p. 8vo. From Coruhill Mag., Mar. et seq., 1864.

"In respect of earnest feeling, far-seeing purpose, rharacter, incident, and a certain loving pictnresqueness blending the whole, I believe it to be much the best of all his works. That he fully meant it to be no. that he had become strongly attached to it, and that he bestowed great pains upon it, I trace in almost every page."—Chabi.es Dickens.

The monument erected to Thnekeray in the Poets' Corner, Westminster Abbey, was uncovered Oct. 21, 1865. It consists of a bust by Baron Mnrochetti, (a friend of the deceased,) upon a base of red serpentine, mounted upon a bronze support, bearing a simple record of his name and the dates of birth and death.

Theobald, Lewis, a literary attorney-at-law, a native of Sittingbourne, Kent, d. September, 1744, already noticed as an editor of Sbakspeare, (see Siiakspeare, William: Collective Editions Of Shakspeare's Plays Asn Poksis, No. 7,) and as the hero of the Dunciad, (see Cibbkr, Collry,) was the author of A Critical Discourse on Homer's Iliad, Lon., 1714; A Translation of the First Book of the Odyssey, with Notes, 1716; Memoirs of Sir Walter Raleigh, 1719, 8vo; Shakcspcar Restored; or, Specimens of Blunders Committed and Unamended in Pope's Edition of this Poet, (title-pages vary,) 1726, r. 4U>; 20 or 21 forgotten plays, (see Biog. Dramat.;) of several translations, pieces of poetry, essays, Ac, and many articles in Mist's Weekly Journal, The Daily Journal, and The Censor. He commenced, but did not live to finish, an edition of Beaumont and Fletcher. Sec, also. Wyciikulky, William, No. 6. As an editor of Sbakspeare, Dr. Johnson thus grades him:

•* Pu|»e was succeeded by Thcobnld, a man of narrow comprehension ami small acquisitions, with no native and intrinsic splendour of senilis, with little of the artificial light of learning, but zealous tor minute accuracy, and not negligent in pursuing it. He collated the ancient copies, and rectified many errors. A man so anxiously scrupulous might have been expected to do more, I»iit what little he did was commonly right."—lYeface to Johnson's «L of S'mkspeare.

Later in the Preface ho treats him with less respect; in his Life of Pope he calls him "a man of heavy diligence with very slender powers;" and he told Burney (see Boswcll's Johnson, ch. xii.) that Warburton " would make two nnd fifty Theobalds, cut into slices." An eminent critic of our day gives a very different verdict:

"Among the commentators on Sbakspeare, Warburton, always striving to display his own acuteness and scorn of others, deviates more than any one else from the meaning. Theobald was the first who did a little."—IIALLAH: Lit. Hist, of EwoiK, 4th ed., 1S34, iii. 93.

If Theobald did only a " little," doubtless many of the poet's editors have done too much. We think Theobald often very happy in his suggestions. See Nichols's Lit. Anec, vii. 417, 689.
