BEALE (ANNE).-THE VALE OF THE TOWEY;
“ Miss Beale has been sojourning in the Vale of the Towey, and has thrown her enjoyment of its scesert, and ber observations on the manners of its rustic population, into the form of a series of sketches. There, either ty original design, or by the mode in which she happened to cast them, become connected together, as the book procerds, by means of the characters, incidents, and fortunes involved in a rural love-match-which, like all other love, does not run quite smooth to its ending. The great merit of her book is its truth; which leares a strong pression on the reader's mind."-SPECTATOR.

Published Quarterly. - The work will probably not exceed Thirty Volumes. “We have carefully examined the articles under letter A, now completed, and have no reason to connia of any want of uniformity. There seems to have been, on the whole, a judicious apporti ning of space, according to the importance of the individual. In order to secure this necessary uniformity, a society, which had no pecsaut profit as its end, was more likely to succeed than a private publisher, or bois of publishers. In stylr, execution, completeness, the lives are far superior to those of any biographical dictionary with which we are acquainted. The only one, indeed, with which, for completeness, it can be compared, is the French · Biographie l'aire ll, but this respect it has very greatly the advantage." (The reviewer institutes a comparison in favour of the Endle work, too long to be quoted, and ends his paragraph as follows:)-So that the Society's Dictionary in ust be regarded as a labour not only for Great Britain, but for Europe.-In all the articles there are two points in which they are fuller and more accurate than any presious work of the kind, and these are, the titles, dates, and places of pall cation of books, and their editions, and the sources from whence the materials have been derived for the biography."

Or, Recollections of College Days, setting forth the Advantages and Temptations of a University Education. By **** ******, M.A. College, Oxford. Post 8vo. 1ős. 6d. cloth.
“A volume of this kind has long been wanted. It traces amusingly the course of the student, from the first discas. sion that arises in his family on his going to college till his preparation for a first-class man. It details the first steps that should be taken, gives the characters of the several colleges, prescribes modes of life and connes of study ; establishes intelligible beacons against the shoals and quicksands of idleness and diseipation, and debt, and draws the beau-ideal of a first-rate collegian. This knowledge is thrown into the form of actual occurrence, being the result of the writer's own experience and observation. The spirit of the book is excellent; and the book itsel canto fail to be useful. All the chapters on college life are admirably written - lively, without exaggeration ; pracucaily useful, yet very amusing ; discursive and various, yet all tending to the object of elevating the collegian's character, keeping him from discreditable practices, and fitting him, by a judicious course of study,
for the bigbest parsuits of life."-BRITANNIA.
