cost of burial on those who took the deceased's property, and where there was no property the pauper was buried by the state. The Roman law was enforced against extravagance in "funeral performances," which it is the object of burial societies, in the interest of undertakers, to promote at a time when parsimony is usually most incumbent.

Index to "The Times" Newspaper, 1867. Autumnal Quarter, Oct. 1 to Dec. 31.

Index to "The Times" Newspaper, 1868. Winter Quarter, January 1 to March 31. (Palmer.)

It may confidently be asserted that no one ever had occasion to turn over a file of the Leading Journal, without regretting that that daily register of the world's sayings and doings was not rendered more readily available for reference and use by an Index. Mr. Samuel Palmer, the well-known dealer in old books of Catherine Street, sharing the opinion of Lord Macaulay, that "The only true history of a country is to be found in its newspapers" -an aphorism which he quotes in his title-pagehas devoted himself to the compilation of an Index to The Times. It is issued in Quarterly Parts; and from the two which have been already issued, we are enabled to pronounce it carefully done: useful to all who may want to refer to the columns for political, parliamentary, or legal information; births, marriages, or deaths; and, in short, indispensable to every library where The Times is filed, and still more so where it is not.

Saint Patrick: Apostle of Ireland in the Third Century. The Story of his Mission by Pope Clementine in A.D. 431, and of his Connexion with the Church of Rome, proved to be a mere Fiction. With an Appendix containing his Confession and Epistle to Coroticus, translated into English. By R. Steele Nicholson, M.A., T.C.D. (J. Russell Smith.)

The view which Mr. Nicholson takes of St. Patrick's connexion with Ireland is shown by his title-page. The book is not a Life of St. Patrick, but an argument to prove that St. Patrick commenced his labours as a Christian missionary in Ireland nearly two centuries before the year 432, the date usually, but as Mr. Nicholson asserts, incorrectly assigned to that event. The subject is an interesting and important one, in many respects: it has a bearing even upon the great political question of the day, and we commend those who are interested in it to examine Mr. Nicholson's little volume.

Horace. The text revised by J. E. Yonge, Assistant Master, Eton. (Longman.)

The favourable reception given to Mr. Yonge's recent octavo edition of Horace has led to the production of the present volume, which for purity of text, the novel feature of side references, and beauty of typography, deserves the attention of all scholars who are looking out for a pretty pocket edition of Horace.

POLITICAL PAPERS OF THE REIGN OF GEORGE III. -Messrs. Sotheby & Wilkinson will sell on Saturday the 11th of July, a remarkable Collection of Historical Papers, including much confidential Correspondence of George III. with the Duke of Leeds; many important Letters by the most eminent men of the time, and the "original rough drafts with various alterations and unpublished passages in the Autograph of the Duke of

Leeds; of the Letters of Lucrus, which by many believed to be from the pen of JUNIUS. These are papers referred to by Mr. Bohn in the preface to the volume of his edition of Lowndes; and of course it identity of LUCIUS with JUNIUS could be establishe but there is much in such if-would settle the vexed literary question of the present century-and p Junius to have been the Duke of Leeds, whose name believe, has never before been inserted in the lis claimants to that doubtful honour.
