A SECOND SERIES of BABY-

LON ihe GREAT, or MEN and THINGS iu the
BRITISH CAPITAL, lu 2 vols. poslBvo. 18s.

' These volumes treat of all subjects connected with
London, fioni the ' forest of masts' in the River, to the
elegance of the Corpuration — trom the Chapel of St.
Stephen's, to the steam-press in Prioting House Square
— Men, Women, Books, &c. — every thing in and about
London that is woithy ol notice in au intellectual
point of view. Nothing escapes the eye. and the lash
of the Critic; he insinuates himself into coteries, and
collects their foibles— he examines men of every
grade and class with an inquisitorial precision, as if
he stopped the passengers in the street, one by one,
and, alter putting his lntei rogatories, sat down to sum
up the gener.il character. All tins is done with an
air of philosophical truth, a certain gravity aud sedate-
ness, that impart a high tone of moral excellence to
the production. He has studied the character ot Lon-
don and Londoners with acuteness. We ibink there is
no doubt that the Author is a Scotchman : but, belie
who he. may, he has produced iwo volumes that are
highly creditable to his genius.'— Atlas.
