given himself the trouble to peruse either Mr. Taylor's Dissertation,
or the introduction to his translation of the Hymns of Orpheus, he
would have found it most satisfactorily demonstrated that the
Orphic, Pythagoric, and Platonic philosophy, was one and the
same;" and that Jamblichus and Proclus say, “the Grecian theo-
logy was derived from Orpheus," all of which he knew before, but
which have nothing to do with the passage in question. If
J. J. W. could have infornied the writer who Orpheus was, and
whence he derived that philosophy, and what it was in his hands,
lre would have given hin better satisfaction than either Mr. Tay-
lor's Dissertation, or his introduction to Orpheus can, and it would
have been much more to the purpose: but he would require better
authorities than Jamblichus or Proclus. So much for the extra-
ordinary part of the affair.
" It appears, however," he continues, “ that this feeble attempt
to cast a slur on Mr. Taylor's invaluable labors is merely to pave
the way for the writer's own explication of the Mysteries, and
which is by far the strangest part of the whole affair." I confess I
am ignorant which it is that J. J. W. considers so strange, the
writer's paving the way to his explication with the question
alluded to, or the explication itself. If the former, I have only,
to say, that there is quite as much strangeness in J. J. W.'s paving
the way to apprise his readers, “who may not possess Mr. Tay-
lor's original Dissertation, that a second and enlarged edition was
given in Nos. 15. and 16. of the Pamphleteer,” by his “ few” but
very illiberal “words.” If the latter, until J. J. W. think
proper to point out to what parts, and for what reasons the term is applied, he can say nothing at all.

18mo. 58. THE FAMILY LIBRARY, No. III. Containing the LIFE OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT. By the Rev. JOHN WILLIAMS, M.A. Rector of the Edinburgh Academy.
John Murray, Albemarle Street. “ Whatever new light could be thrown on any particular point of Alexander's career, by a most strict examination of all the original writings of the Greeks and Romans, whatever could be gathered from the literature of the Arabs and Persians-above all, whatever the works of modern European travellers could supply, all this may be found concentrated in one handy little volume of the Family Library. We are greatly mistaken if this little volume do not become a school book. It is far better fitted for that purpose than any one of recent publication, with which we have chanced to meet. It will, no doubt, become a great favorite among young persons engaged in the delightful career of classical study; but we are bound to add, that it deserves a place in the collection of the more mature reader, and is in fact a permanent addition to the stock of standard histories in the English tongue.”—Literary Gazette.
“The present biography, from the pen of that well-known scholar and estimable gentleman, the Rev. Mr. Williams, is an attempt to supply, and we believe for the first time, that desideratum in English classical literature, a correct bistory of Alexander the Great. The task, one of no slight difficulty, has been executed with consummate skill; and is among the most fascinating specimens of biography we have ever had the good fortune to peruse."-Sun.
