In Kelly's Handbook to the Titled, Landed, and Official Classes

(Kelly and Co.), we have the sixth annual issue of what was origin- ally published as "The Upper Ten Thousand." It includes all deputy. lieutenants and justices of the peace and principal clerks of State Departments, and is a very useful directory, and as far as we have been able to observe, both correct and complete. A literary, scien- tific, and artistic handbook should be added, and would make the catalogue of persons of note in the kingdom pretty well complete. Of two great men of science, one is named because he happens to have married the daughter of a noble house, while the other is passed over. We do not object to seeing obscare J.P.'s enumerated, but we should like to see the addition which we have suggested.
