Silvia. The trayedy, then, so far, appears likely to run the ordinary course of all comedies, and terminate in matrimony; but that would never do,so old Gomez, sooner than see his niece united to his rival, avails himself of the effectual means of preventing it which Hernani left at his disposal. He winds the horn; the fatal sounds are obeyed by Hernani; he swallows poison; his intended bride follows his example ; and Don Gomez completes the catastrophe by stabbing himself, of this tragedy, full of the most striking innovations on the French Drama, a parody has been got op at the Porte St. Martin, and it is admirably humorous and pointed. The title is · Ni Ni, a drama in Rhythmical Proge, translated from the Goth by a Vandal. Music by a Hun.' As a specimen of the manner in which the caricature has been done, we may mention one instance, in which the satire is not less amusing than it is critically just. The tragedy would appear to have its natural termination, as we already mentioned, where Charles pardons Hernani, and sanctions his marriage; this ends the fourth act. The parodist imitates the fault; but before the fifth act commences, which is to protract the action, and give it a different turn, one of the actors, grarely habited, and with a face of melancholy, comes forward, and begs to know from the audience if they will allow a few more last words.

Two more volumes, completing the literary labours of the celebrated Burckhardt, will shortly make their appearance. They are occupied chiefly with an account of the Wahabys, and Bedouins, and the modern Egyptians.

Paganini, the celebrated artist on the violin, is shortly expected in England. The great superiority of this performer is said to consist in an astonishing and unexampled effect which he produces on the fourth, or bass string, alone.

The first Valet de Chambre of Napoleon, M. Constant, is about to give us the late Emperor in his Slippers, we do not know in how many volumes. This valet was only eight days absent during sixteen years of personal attendance on his imperial master. · Mr. Rankin, of Bristol, will shortly publish a Familiar Treatise on Life Assurances and Annuities, comprising a Historical Sketch of the Origin, Progress, and Present State of the Science, and of Life Asssurance Offices, together with Observations on the Duration of Human Life, and on Various Objects of Interest connected with the subject.

*.* Dr. Bowring again! Ecce iterum Crispinus! We have received, since our last Number, an Epistle, left at our office, like an infant in a basket, in a most anonymous predicament. It is, however, so comically extravagant, that we have no hesitation in at once swearing it to Dr. Bowriug. They are as like as two eggs. The Doctor complaineth ; he is wroth at the familiarity of our reprehension, and can never forgive us for so unmercifully putting him in the pillory of a doggrel chorus beside the shade of the unfortunate Miss Bailey. Now all this, Dr. Bowring ascribes to personal malice ou our part-sheer envy, no doubt, being the proximate cause. Malice iudeed— The Monthly Review entertain malice against Dr. Bowring? Marry, but this is a more exqusite song than the other. Does any man imagine that Lord Tenterden is actuated by personal ill-will against the offender on whom he passes the just sentence of the law? But this is the way with all these delinquents. Convicted on the fairest evidence, they have no other resource than some such recrimination as this—" Its all a conspiracy; and judge and jury are at the bottom of the Poor Jack is as innocent a lad as the babe unborn : so help me,”-and the fellow pa out an oath,
