is to be joined to that of Trieste. In 1847, the traveller may go, without fail, from Milan to Stettin on the Baltic. But the most interesting line for us is that of Gallicia, in connexion with that of Silesia. If prolonged from Czernowitz to Galatz, along the dead flat of Moldavia, the Black Sea and the German Ocean will be joined; Samsoun and the Tigris will thus be, in all probability, at no distant day, on the high road to our Indian empire.

But to return to Austria ; this spectacle of rapid material improvement, without popular commotion, and without the trumpets and alarm-bells of praise and blame, is satisfactory: but when we look to the reverse of the picture, and see the cumbrous debt, the frequent deficits, and the endless borrowing, we think the time has come for great financial reforms,-as Schiller hath it :

“ Warum denn nicht mit einem grossen Schritte anfangen, - Da sie mit einem grossen Schritte doch enden müssen ?”

THE END.

MR. PATON'S WORK ON SYRIA,

Post 8vo, price 10s. 6d.

THE MODERN SYRIANS;

OR,

NATIVE SOCIETY IN DAMASCUS, ALEPPO, AND

THE MOUNTAINS OF THE DRUSES.

“ Lebanon and its inhabitants, particularly the Druses, Damascus, and Aleppo, are his leading subjects. His statements, under the first of these heads, form by far the most valuable portion of the work, affording, as it does, information not elsewhere to be found respecting the social condition, the politics, and the state of religion in a highly interesting region, our knowledge of which has hitherto been of the slightest description. Next to this, in interest, is the account of Aleppo, which has been less visited by English travellers than Damascus ; but even at Damascus, the information of this writer has considerable novelty, and embraces many points of interest arising from his leisurely sojourn, from his mixing more than other travellers with the native population, and from his ability to converse with them in their own language. Hence we have pictures more distinct in their outlines, facts more positive, and information more real than the passing traveller, ignorant of the local language, can be reasonably expected to exhibit. . ... makes larger additions to the common stock of information concerning Syria, than any work which could easily be named since ‘Burckhardt's Travels in Syria’ appeared.”—Eclectic Review.

“Remarkably clever and entertaining.”—Times.

“In many of the conversations and reports in this volume, there seems to us a reality, which European writing and discourse often want.”—Spectator.

“I willingly testify to the fact of your having enjoyed facilities over all our modern travellers, for accurately describing the manners, customs, and statistics of Syria."Letter of Mr. Consul-General Barker.
