the executiwe government. He has erred in his calculations of fupport from the turks and arabs. The genius of turks and arabs is not To subject to our political calculations as that of european nations. It is an obje&t of great curiosity, to know what such a genius and hero will do in such circumstances; what resources he will find in his invention, or what resolution from despair.

The coalition between

RUSSIA AND THE PORTE is a great novelty in politics, and strongly marks an extraordinary revolution in the affairs of Europe. The ottoman court appear to have perfectly understood the views of the directory; though it endeavoured to observe a neutrality as long as it was possible. All the manifeftoes of the grand fignior are drawn up with a brevity, precision, juftness, dignity, and manly sense, that are feldom to be found in those of the european courts, or the memorials of diplomatists.

GREAT-BRITAIN AND IRELAND. The victories obtained over the french at sea, by lord Nelson and fir John Warren, will be great blessings indeed, both to this nation, and to all Europe, if they be the means of obtaining a juit and safe peace; by seizing the present occasion to thow a spirit of justice and moderation, to offer a restoration of all our conquefts to their right owners, on the condition of those made by owners being restored to their former independence; and to call on the french nation, and all the governments of Europe, to join the british government in a general plan of the protection of property, and the rights of na tions.

“ There is a vast Fund of Knowledge dispersed at present through Literary World, but we have feldom seen it carefully collected, or inte gently explained. These Observations are peculiarly applicable to tha Be of Science which forms the Subject of thete Volumes; the few popular Wor which presented a clear View of the Natural World to the general Read bave froin the almost cntire Revolution which has taken Place in Philaka been rendered obsoletc; the recent Discoveries are scattered througho number of Books. In bringing together these detached Facts and Oder vations, in giving them a Systematic Form, and above all in explaining in clear and perspicuous Language, our Author has certainly rendered essential Service to the Public; has opened the Gates of Science to the Yod and to the Indoient, and has prepared an excellent Text-Book of Raofita! for those who are already Proficients.”

CRITICAL REVIEW, for OA. 1796. Dr. Gregory has performed his Tak in a Manner, which we do por hesitate to pronounce honourable to himself and useful to the World, Tu Order in which he has disposed his Materials is new, and in many Respedi advantageous; a large part of his Collection consists of interesting Maires which has not been before introduced into any popular Treatises Language is familiar, elegant and clear."

ANALYTICA: Review, for Nov. 1996, Many and various as the Books on Education are, the Publication fore us is perhaps the best, that is the most comprehenfive, as well as cali and popular Introduction to natural Science that has yet made its Appearing in the English Language."

ExGLISH REVIEW, for Nor, 17 ** We have now to declare, that the Work has appeared to as written wid much Perfpicuity and Precision. The occafional Observations and Infeccs. are just and apposite. Much practical Knowledge is introduced; and not dilection for Systems or Hypotheses bas miled the Author in his long toilsome Career.”

BRITISH CRITIC, for Dec. 1996 In this new Edition a very long Chapter has txeu added on the ME. CHÀNIC POWERS, and two whole Chapters on the REFLECTIONS REFRACTION of LIGHT, intended to make the SCIENCE OF OPTIC plain and intelligible, to Readers unacquainted with Mathematics,

Whatever of Novelty has occurred in Science, since the first Pablication of the Work, has also been added; all Omifions have been fupplid; acd whatever Errors escaped in the fieft Impreliop, kave been carsfully corrested
