and frequent changes and modifications. It is probable that as politics ebiety engross the attention of the nation, the critical notices on new works inserted in the newspapers, which are notoriously dictated by unworthy motives, sordid, party, or personal, satisfy the mass of readers. The Revue Encyclopédique, established by M. Julien de Paris, succeeded during several years, but eventeally fell when its creator passed it to other hands. M. Guizot and the Duke de Broglie tried a fair experiment in 1829: they established the Rerue française, in which their political, critical, and philosophical doctrines were developed and applied with remarkable ability ; but it did not last long; it sunk for want of support, and a recent attempt to revive it received so little encouragement, that it has again ceased to appear. The Revue Trimestrielle was also well conducted, but soon ceased. We are justified in affirming that the only reviews which possess the recommendation of long standing and general popularity, are the Deur Monles and the Revue de Paris, and they are published more in the form of the English magazines than of the great reviews. And yet scarcely a year passes but painful efforts to establish new critical periodicals are witnessed, which invariably prove abortive : the puny productions perish for lack of sustenance after the the most ephemeral of ex. istences. One exception, however, must be noted in favour of the Revue de Progrès, which is elited with powerful energy by M. Louis Blanc; it has drawn the attention of the French public by the strong democratic principles it upholds, the bold tenets it has avowed in the face of the world, and the host of superior men who co-operate in its publication. The Revue de Paris is a weekly journal, containing critical notices, light tales, and worldly chitchat, always elegant and sprightly in tone and matter, and especially calculated to beguile the leisure hours of the bouloir. The Revue de Deux Mondes frequently gives masterly pieces of criticism ; such are the articles of De Carné, Saint-Beuve, Mignet, Marmier, Lerminier, Chasles, Charles Magnin, and others.** With respect to reviews, we have specified the only two that have any standing and permanency of merit. As to the monthly review called Journal des Savants, it would be a gross error to rank it among the ordinary periodicals of any country. It is, in fact, a review of the highest order, but at once private and national; it only notices works of the finest merit and utility ; it is printed by the royal press, and the committee of authors who prepare its articles, is composed of sixteen members belonging to the various sections of the Royal Institute. It is in the Journal des Savants that the admirable classical dissertations of Letronne and Burnouf, the valuable scientific investigations of Biot and Libri, the philosophical literary analyses of Cousin and Villemain, are to be found.“
