anxiety with which we have often contemplated similar performances.

The play-bills of Sadler's Wells almost deterred us from this theatre, as they threatened us with spectacles of "appalling interest," and we had no notion of being frightened to death for the sake of amusement ; having, however, "screwed our courage to the sticking places' we entered the theatre, and were much pleased by Schinderhannes, though we own we were a good deal frightened.

The City Theatre has produced many very entertaining novelties, and we think from the appearance of the houses, that the proprietors' exertions are properly estimated by the public.

Amongst the most recent attractions is Rede's drama of the Barn Burners.

Pioneers of elementary instruction, have succeeded in carving footsteps at the commencement of its hitherto formidable ascent, an d smoothed down many of the rugged obstructions which deterred the diffident from attempting what before seemed almost insurmountable.

The author of the present work, we think may justly be classed among these valuable labourers, and that he has not only succeeded in rendering the problems in. telligible to those who never before took up a book on a geometrical subject, but has also contrived to render the practical advantages evident to the most obtuse.

We admit that there may be more fitting employments for our countrywomen, than researches into the “ integral calculus,' or the doctrine of “ infinites," but we are certain that such a knowledge of geometry as would be imparted to the fair student by the study of the work before us, would be found practically useful in many of those more elegant arts which the su. perior refinement and taste of woman have rendered peculiarly her own. The correct shaping of a costume | depends entirely on mathematical principles, and even

a card-rack would lose nothing of its beauty, by its angles being pointed by aid of the compasses and the problem.

As our author's intention is rather to prove by actual measurement, than by inductive reasoning the correct. ness of the several results, he very properly advises great accuracy in forming the geometric figures.

A TREATISE ON THE PHYSIOLOGY OF THE EYE, by

John Harrison Curtis, Oculist and Aurist to his Majesty, &c.

This is a medical treatise on the Eye, written in a popular and interesting manner, while the well-earned professional celebrity of its writer, stamps with authority, his directions for preserving the sight. He particularly alludes to the injurious effects of long application to small objects; we ourselves have often regretted to see the perseverance with which minute needlework is cultivated ainong the ladies of this country, and the consequent prevailing inferiority of female vision. Mr. Curtis advises, in cases where such employments are indispensable, occasionally to look at distant objects, so that the vision may not become weakened by such un wearied exertion. On this subject he observes.

"Another means that will be found to be beneficial, and to help the eyes where much relaxation cannot be obtained, consists in shutting them now and then while at work ; going into the air; looking out at an open window, tspecially if there be any trees or verdure within sight: this interval of rest, though only of a few minutes' contingance, will be found greatly to relieve the eyes, and enable them to resume their employment with comparative pleasure."

We strongly recommend an attentive petusal of the 6th chapter of this work, to all who value the inesti. mable blessings of sight.

The author, who has before written extensively on the physiology of the Ear, lays considerable stress on the intiinate connexion between the structure of that organ and the eye, and considers that the same mode of treatment is applicable to both.

We much admire the spirit in which he ridicules the notion that the airist encroaches on the manor of the oculist, by uniting the professions. Such paltry jealousies have long had a retarding effect on tbe progress of English surgery. L's efuL GEOMETRY, practically exemplified by A

Still the ingenious modern

An attempt has been made to revive the filthy custom which the taste of our grand mothers exploded; that of disguising with powder, the most beautiful ornament of the female countenance, the hair.

We have little fear but that our fair country women will reject this abominable attempt, and that its use will be confined to those only, who require such an auxiliary to hide the bleaching influence of time, and are anxious to deprive their grand-daughters of their youthful advantages.

The ci-devnnt belle who has thus endeavoured to deface the lovely creations which nature made with no “ prentice hand,” will be sensible that we see through her motive, and cannot deny the perfect application of our remarks.

We should only disgust our fair readers by enume. rating the effects, that the use of powder has on personal cleanliness ; as the monstrous compound of pomatum and starch-powder named fifty years ago a head-dress, was often the theme of the physician's remonstrance, and the wit's satire.

We subjoin one from among the many letters we have received on this subject, and quite agree with our “ auburn-haired” correspondent.
