While taking serious exception to every essay, almost to every page, we by no means wish to speak in a tone of mere disparage. ment or dislike We have seldom seen so much real promise combined with so little of valuable performance; and if Mr. Pearson will abandon his Ishinealitish attitude and manage to believe that other men love truth as well as he- if he will take the hint which he gives to Mr. Gladstone, and learn before he teaches; and the hint wbich he gives to Mr. Dollinger, and keep clear in history of polemical bias; and the hint which he gives to Professor Stokes, and avoid logical fallacies based on erroneous extention of terms,' - if he will accomplish as he purpores some laborious and exact historical labour, and will then in a calmer mood express the con. clusions of a longer experience we can believe that his fearless voice may intervene to useful purport in some of the practical problems of our time."

Remarkable book, dashed off with the freedom and frankness of a Russian soldier." - Critic, Sept. 15. Ward, Drs. H. Miss Bretherton. 1884. Whistler, J. A. M'X. " Ten o'clock."

" Brilliant and pungent wit, wirdom salted with paradox, and reason spiced with eccentricity; truths and semi-truths, admirable propositions, and questionable inferences. Much that Mr Whistler has to say about the primary requisites, and the rulical conditions of art is not merely sound and solid good sense as well as vivid and pointed rhetoric, it is a message very specially needed by the present generation of students in art or letters. Thuse only who have laid it to heart maġ be permitted to point out that it is not all the truth; that It is by no manner of menns an exhaustive and com. plete statement of the capacities and the duties, the ob. jects and the properties of creative or imaginative art.

It is a cruel but an inevitable Nemesis which reduces even a man of real genius, keen-willed, and sharp. righted, to the level of the critic Jobson, to the level of the dotard and the dunce, when paradox is discolvured by personality and merriment is distorted by malevo. lence." -- Algernon Churles Swinburne in the Fort

Elaborate tables give the results of all the impor. tane races in England from 1880 to the present time, and nothing has been left undone to present an adequate history of the growth of scientitic rowing." -- Nution, July 5.
