Bickerstaff, Mr. account of his ancestors, 141. How his race was improved, 142. Not in partnership with Lillie, 250. Catched writ. ing nonsense, 47.

Dead men, who are to be so accounted, 247.

Sometimes he has a stroke of pathos, as touching in its brevity as the account it refers to ; as,

Love-letters between Mr. Bickerstaff and Maria, 184—186. Found in a grave, 289.

Sometimes he is simply moral and graceful; as,

Tenderness and humanity inspired by the Muses, 258. No true greatness of mind without it, ibid.

At another, he says perhaps more than he intended ; as,

Laura, her perfections and excellent character, 19, Despised by her husband, ibid.

The Index to Cotton's Montaigne, probably written by the translator himself, is often pithy and amusing. Thus in Volume 2d,

Anger is pleased with, and flatters itself, 618.
Beasts inclined to avarice, 225...
Children abandoned to the care and government of their fathers, 613.
Drunkenness, to a high and dead degree, 16.
Joy, profound, has more severity than gaiety in it. i Hiss fees 34 RESA
Monsters, are not so to God, 6.12.
Voluptuousness of the Cynicks, 418.

Sometimes we meet with graver quaintnesses and curious relations, as in the index to Sandys's Ovid ; Diana, no virgin, 'scoft at by Lucian, p. 55.

Dwarfes, an Italian Dwarfe carried about in a parrot's cage, p. 113. 1.1 Eccho, at Twilleries in Paris, heard to repeat a verse without failing in one syllable, p. 58.

Ship of the Tyrrhenians miraculously stuck fast in the sea, p. 63. A Historie of a Bristol ship stuck fast in the deepe Sea by Witchcraft : for which twentie-five Witches were executed, ibid. 1 Bnt this subject, we find, will furnish ample materials for a sepas rate article ; and therefore we stop here for the present. We have still a notion upon us, that because we have been making an index, we are bound to be very business-like and unamusing.)

ERRATA. Page 387. For “ it is not knowledge that makes us happy as we grow up,” read it is not knowledge that makes us unhappy," &c.

There are many smaller errors scattered through the v volume : which are owing to the hurry in which the Editor has often written, and are noi be laid to the account of the Printer. The Reader, if he thinks it worth while, will be good enough to correct

is pen as he meets with them. They may be safely left in his hands. Should Work bé reprinted, the Editor will take care to see them altered.15

TO CORRESPONDENTS. The Letter of 1. R. was extremely welcome and gratifying, on every account..
