THE

ECLECTIC REVIEW,

For JULY, 1830.

Art. 1. Memoir of the Life and Public Services of Sir Thomas

Stamford Raffles, F.R.S. &c. particularly in the Government of Java, 1811---16, and of Bencoolen and its Dependencies, 1817–24. By his Widow. 4to. pp. 838. Price 21. 12s. 6d.

London, 1830. IT is but a short time since we had to lay before our readers,

the chronicle and brief abstract' of the life and public services of a highly distinguished officer in the employment of the East India Company; and we are now furnished with an opportunity of offering a similar tribute of regret and admiration to the memory of an individual not less eminent, and whose services, though requited with something very like ingratitude, have not been surpassed in importance by those of any of his predecessors in similar circumstances. It seldom happens to a Government, that it can reckon among its agents, two such men as Sir Thomas Munro, and Sir Stamford Raffles; and still more rare is it to find such vigorous and effective administrators perfectly to the taste of their principals. There is usually a slowness to understand their worth; and, when it is comprehended, a want of generous confidence in their wisdom and integrity,

either to withhold from them the instruments and opportunities of action, or, when compelled to give them a fair field, to watch them with jealous vigilance, and to criticise their measures with mean and miserable captiousness. It is, accordingly, not too much to say respecting the great men of whom we are now speaking, that they were both neglected by their employers, until Sir Thomas Munro was forced upon their notice by the admiration of his comrades and coadjutors, and until
