"The Editor has obtained the advantage of consulting several of the original letters of Dean Swift, and even adding to the number two or three not hitherto published, under the following singular circumstances:-These valuable documents were in possession of the late Theophilus Swift, Esq., who dying in furnished lodgings in London, his papers appear to have fallen into the hands of persons totally incapable of estimating their value. Many, indeed by far the greater part, were treated as ordinary waste paper, and the rest were saved from the same fate by Mr Smith, a gentleman of taste and liberality, who was much grieved and surprised at the condition in which he discovered the correspondence of Swift and of Pope, and several of the miscellaneous Poems of the former. Several of these are still in the Editor's hands, being confided to him by the liberality of Mr Smith, now absent on the Continent. There can be no question of their originality, but they do not contain much that has not been already published. What additions Mr Smith's papers have afforded to this Second Edition of the Dean of St. Patrick's Works are acknowledged where these are inserted."—Preface to the Second Edition.

FRANCE. In the Chamber of Peers, the French Ministry has again been in a minority. It was on a proposition for allowing the proceedings in the Chambers to be reported in the Journals. The partisans of the disgraced minister, Chateaubriand, exult in this, and anticipate more serious defeats. The ex-minister keeps no sort of terms with his late colleagues. He makes daily revelations of the sytem of Government pursued for the last two years in France. He declares that the Ministers have purchased most of the Journals, violated the spirit and the letter of the charter, as well as the rights of the people, in the last elections,

and that their acts were so repugnant to his elevated mind, that if he did not resign, it was because he knew that he formed the moral strength of the Government, and feared the effects of a division between the Royalists!" This self-knowledge is a proof of singular modesty on the part of the Noble Peer; and his late colleagues are certainly much to blame to have so easily parted with their "moral strength." There is, however, still much strength of some kind or other in the following remarks, which they make through the medium of the Quotidienne, upon his conduct. "If he disapproved so deeply of the ensemble of his colleague's opera
