The Verses on “ Mysorei Tyranni Mors” are ingenious and spirited; but if the author will peruse the rules for Alcaics in No. xxii. of the Classical Journal, he will see that some of the lines are liable to objection in point of metrical strictness.

A DICTIONARY OF LATIN PHRASES:

Comprehending a methodical digest of the various phrases from the best authors, which have been collected in all phraseological works hitherto published; for the more speedy progress of students in LATIN COMPOSITION. By W. ROBERTSON, M. A. of Cambridge. A new Edition, with considerable addi tions, alterations, and corrections. For the use of the Middle and Upper Classes in Schools. Price 15s. royal duod. containing above 1000 pages.

The present edition has this advantage over its predecessors, that it is enriched with many hundred phrases which have hitherto been unrecorded; and these have been drawn from the purest fountains by actual perusal; from Cicero, Tacitus, Terence, Plautus, &c.

The valuable assistance which it will afford to the Student and School-boy, in Latin Composition, can scarcely fail to obtain for it a distinguished place in the list of School Books.-Class. Journ. No. 57.

If the work in its first estate' was a favorite treatise at our schools, it can have nothing to fear in its renovated form, where its barbarisms have been expunged, and some thousand phrases, drawn from the purest sources, have been added. We shall merely observe that it is an excellent key to Latin Composition.--Literary Chron.

The utility of the work to students in Latin Composition is too evident to need pointing out, and we doubt not that it will readily find a due place in the list of School Books.--Gentleman's Magazine, May, 1824.

J. Mitchell, who advertised his TRANSLATION OF DAVID'S GRAMMATICAL PARALLEL OF THE CLASSIC AND MODERN

GREEK LANGUAGES, in the last Journal, begs to observe it may be had of himself, No. 25, St. Swithin's lane, Lombard street, and of Messrs. Black, Young, and Young, Tavistock street,

Covent garden. The Monthly Critical Gazette for August, 1824, No. 3, after a diffuse and luminous comment on Greece, Ancient and Modern, the Languages of either epoch, and of the Work itself, thus concludes:

We earnestly recommend this useful little work to the notice of the Scholar, the Liberal, the Philhellenist, and the Traveller. It will tend to diffuse a knowledge of Modern Greek at a time when such a knowledge must naturally be a subject of interest, policy, and emulation. The vestiges of Greece's ancient greatness are to be traced by the Traveller. The people retain an accurate echo of that Language, so dear to the Scholar, which, in old times, was so harmonious, so eloquent, and so powerful; and the generation before us recalls to our recollection the Heroes, the Poets, the Philosophers, the Orators, the Historians, of yore, who adorned the most brilliant spot of the civilised world.
