SAUNDERS'S Portraits of Living Political Reformers are not so striking

and animated as Itsrau.'s of the Conservatives. GEORGE HATTER'S likenesses have a set, formal look : that of Mr. Buxton, in Part V. is characteristic; but we miss the bonhommie of Earl Spencer. MEADOWS has libelled Sergeant Talfourd. Highly finished miniature engravings like these should reach perfection free, slight sketches, are preferable to heavy, laboured productions.
