Mr. Elihu Burritt reprints Washington's Words to intending English Emigrants

to America. (Sampson Low.)—These " words " consist of a letter which was written by General Washington to Sir George Sinclair, in 1196. Mr. Burritt supplements them with the result of his own. experience and inquiries, and the changes of three-quarters of a cen- tury give him, as may well be supposed, plenty to add. We are inclined to doubt, though not pretending to any special knowledge of the subject,. whether the average Englishman would succeed as well as Mr. Burritt thinks in New England, a somewhat hungry country, with a very keen. competition from a much cleverer race ; but that his advice in general is sound and useful we do not doubt.
