Besides the above, we have half-a-dozen serials on our table.
(I.) The Fifth Volume of MURRAY'S Crabbe, with a capital view of Orfordness Lighthouse, a vignette of the landscape immortalized in "The Lover s Journey," and some occasional poems, which now appear for the first time. (2.) The Third and Fourth Volumes of the same publisher's Universal History, coming down to the thir- teenth century. (3.) The Fourth Part of the Lays and Legends of Various Nations; containing an agreeable mixture of prose and verse, frequently smacking of' Moorish character ; one of which description of tales, "The Moor who married a Shrew," is an exact counterpart, in essentials, of an Oriental story told by Mee- cora!, and might have furnished Mr. KEIGHTLEY with as strong a proof' of strange coincidence or long transmission as any he has adduced. (4.) The Second Volume of Scott's Prose Works, con- taining the Life of SWIFT, with a full-length portrait of the Dean in full canonicals. (5.) The Thirtieth Number of the Aldine Poetscomtnences YOUNG, with a Life of the Poet by Mr. MITFORD. The biography is a well-arranged collection of the events, of his life, and of the few personal anecdotes which have been preserved, with a melancholy and truthful account of his last illness, ex- tracted front the letters of his curate. (G.) The Fifth Volume of VALPY'S Hume, which hrings down his history to. the close of ELIZABETH'S reign.
