Ånt. XXIV. SELECT LITERARY INFORMATION.

A Life of the late Pichard Cumber: land, Esq. by Mr. Mudford, is in preparation. The · Memoirs' says the Editor, published by the author bimself, will be used as an authentic record for every thing respecting facts : but there will still remain an important portion to supply. The reasonings deducible from those facts ; the estimate of Mr. Cumberland's literary character: a detailed inquiry into the merits of his several productions : the continuation of his life, literary and personal, since the publication of the 'Memoirs :' the introduction of collateral matter, which it bad been foily to suppose the author would endeavour to perpetuate; together with that general mass of critical and miscellaneous literature, which the contemplation of the period in which he lived must naturally elicit; are among those topics that remain to be discussed, and which it is intended to comprise in the projected publication.”
