“ We take leave of our juvenile poet, by assuring him that his little volume of poems contains more beauties, in a given extent, and fewer blemishes, thau we usually expect in

first essay;' and, should he still court the Muse with the devotion and good taste apparent in his preseut work, he canuot fail, eventually, to enrol his name with that of • the poet of nature-Oliver Goldsmith."-Somerset. House Gazette, No. 24.

" Wherc alınost every line is beautiful, selection is difficult; and were we to indulge our admiration, by selecting every part of this elegant poem which claims it, our extracts might subject us to the cliarge of pirucy.''- British Critic, Aug. 1824.

Contre," &c. &c. Second EDITION, 4 Vols. 12mo. price il 12s. boards. “ It will he observed, that these extracts have been made from a single volume, simply because, in turning over its pages, they struck us as affording sufficiently varied examples of the writer's ability. Bui there are three more volumes, from which specimens of equal beauty and expressiveness might be selected ; and we conceive we can hardly pass a higher panegyric on this new aud puwerful production."--Literary Gazetle.

“ The Author of those popular productions, · Bertram,' Women,' • Montorio,' &c. has unquestionably proved hiinself master of a great profusion of striking and eloquent lan. guage, of a rich and picturesque conception, and of much curious and romantic knowledge.

“ The book ought to be read, and a large proportion of it may challenge, and even ensure, adinisation. We should look in vain to any other novelist for passages superior in vigour and beauty to many in the Albigenses.”- Universal Review, No. 2.

“ of the descriptive talent possessed by Mr. Maturiu, which has suffered no abatement in the present instance, we can speak in terms of unqualified praise. Every chapter abounds in passages bearing the impress of a fervid and picturesque imagination.”
