THE

CALCUTTA REVIEW.

VOL. XIV.

JULY—DECEMBER 1850.

« Ko man, who hath listed learning, but will confess the many ways of profiting by
those, who, not contented with stale receipts, are able to manage and set forth new positions
to the world: and, were they but as the dust and cinders of our feet, so long, as in that
notion, they may yet serve to polish and brighten the armoury of truth, even for that
respect, they were not utterly to be cast away."Milton.
