Sartor Resartus ; the Life and Opinions of Herr Teufels-

driickh. This work, originally begun if not completed in Fraser's Magazine, seems to have been first reprinted in America, where it attracted great attention. It now appears in a collected form, under the auspices of Messrs. SAUNDERS and OTLEV, to gratify the land of its birth. If our readers know nothing of the production, let us briefly tell them, that under the guise of a review or translation of a volume of a German Professor on Clothes, a vehicle is made for descriptive ridicule of German scholastic habits and tractates, mingled with shrewd and pithy remarks ; but the purpose of the author k not very intelligible, and lie spins out the thread of his jest too long.
