Perhaps there are persons who may be interested in knowing, that the first volume of the Marquis of Londonderry's Narrative of the War in Germany was written by Mr. Gleig. The second volume, just published, the No le Lord declares, is from his own pen.

The late destruction of the English Opera House by fire, has deprived the Beef-Steak Club of a place of rendezvous. This is very singular. Most of the first persons in the realm belonged to it. Its meetings are held by session, the steak is dressed in the room where the members as semble, and a tremendous fine imposed for non-attendance, or want of punctuality. Five guineas a minute, or so, is the rate of fine, and expol. sion punishes the third offence of this kind.

The French seem to think, that they are never to have enough of Napoleon. Two more works respecting him are in preparation : one by M. Pons, who was with Buonaparte at Elba; and the other by M. Thiers, embracing the history of the consulate and the empire.

Mr. Jacob has in a state of forwardness a work on the Production and Consumption of the Precious Metals.

Mr. Moore is engaged in a Life of Petrarch, between whom and Lord Byron this poet has shewn that many singular analogies exist.

A curious work, entitled Revelations de Faits Importars, is announced at Paris, by M. Morin. He was a Conducter of Police in 1814, and may, probably, have some strange mysteries to disclose.

The Life of Robespierre is to form one of the amuseigents of the spring at Paris.

The Rev. Hyde Cassan, author of some political pamphlets, has announced the Lives of the Bishops of Bath and Wells from the earliest times.

Samson, the guillotine man during the revolution in France, who has been for some years dead, is soon to figure once more as the subject of an extensive memoir. We happen to know, from a French correspondent, that when the present Mr. Samson was applied to to lend his assistance in completing the memoirs of his father, the sensitive Jack Ketch of Paris, was absolutely melted into tears! Old Samson was a man of education and attainments; his “ dreadful trade" by no means hardened his character, for it is to him that France owes the abolition of that horrible system of torture, which used formerly to be employed to extort confession from supposed criminals.

One of the greatest singularities of modern times, is the publication of a newspaper in Egypt! It is now about ten months in existence. The press at which it is printed belongs to the Viceroy of Egypt at Cairo, and is only a vehicle for the ordinances and decrees of Government.

The Baron de la Bergorie has published, at Paris, a very curious work on the state of Agriculture in ancient Greece, from the time of Homer to Theocritus.

A bookseller at Zwickhau has published a pocket edition of the popular writers of various countries, translated. This pocket edition consists of only two hundred and fifty volumes, each volume sold at sixpence!

A descriptive account is shortly expected of the Coins of the French Revolution. The announcement of such a work will call to mind Dr. Kelly's curious chapter on these coins, in his admirable work, the Cambist.
