Scientific Squabble.-Á difference has arisen between the Paris Academy of Medicine and the French Government, owing to the appointment by the latter of a distinguished chemist, to make an analysis, on the spot, of the different mineral springs in France. The Academy ap prove of the choice, but contend that the appointment should rest with them, and not with ordered government. Particular researches

In justice to Mr. Hansard it should be stated, that he came to the metropolis a journeyman; and, like the late Mr. Strahan, the late Mr. Cadell, and others whom we could name, had slender prospect of success beyond that to which his own personal application, perseverance, and merit, might entitle him. Also, like the persons with whom we rank him, Mr. Hansard accumulated a liberal competency, which, as it was honourably and sedulously earned, was the more richly deserved.

Malaria.-At a late sitting of the Academy of Medicine in Paris, M. Villernie read a paper on the Influence of Marshes upon Human Life, from which he drew the following conclusions:➡ In the salubrious portions of our climates, the winter and spring months are those which give the greatest number of deaths, and the winter is more fatal in the north than in the south. In marshy countries the greatest number of deaths is in the months of July, August, September, and October; and the evaporation of the marshes is most fatal to persons from one to six years of age. The complaint which generally attacks children, owing to the malaria of marshes, is stated to be an acute gastro-intestinal affection

No. VI. will be published in December. "The fifth Number of this periodical has just been published, and is now before us. Though we hailed the work when it first appeared, for its utility, and admired the talent displayed in it, we were aware that the lapse of a certain time was necessary to prove the solidity of its resources, and establish its claims to public favour. Every new journal endeavours to start with eclat, and it is comparatively easy to make one or two great efforts; but to command an amount of talent sufficiently great and diver. sified to furnish interesting matter for four volumes (for they are really volumes, rather than numbers) per annum, hic labor, hoc opus est, as the conductors of the existing Reviews well know. In the present instance, the difficulty is enhanced by the circumstance, that to the ordinary qualities of good writing and able thinking, the contributors must add an acquaintance with modern languages and foreign literature, which is by no means common in this country. It is a pleasure to us to state, that the conductors of the Foreign Quarterly' have fulfilled our expectations, and executed their arduous task in a manner that leaves almost nothing to be desired. Their journal has passed through the period of its nonage: and the fifth Number now published is not only better than the first, but we would put it with confidence into the hands of any impartial reader of the Edinburgh' and the Quarterly,' the most celebrated journals of the class, and leave it to him to decide whether it was not in point of talent and interest on a par with either."-Scotsman.

"The present Number of the Foreign Quarterly Review' is decidedly superior to any of the former ones. The contributors are apparently increased in number, and are of more distinguished talents. The work displays research, intelligence, and an independent tone of criticism, as well in the literary as in the political department, which cannot be too highly commended. From an article on Turkey and Russia, which cannot fail to be interesting and instructive at this moment, we make the following extract," &c.-New Times.

"The fifth Number of this able and well-conducted periodical is no less varied and interesting than the former ones. Several of the articles, besides containing a just appreciation, and an able epitome of the works under review, are valuable as original compositions; and might, perhaps, be read with more pleasure and advantage than the works they notice." After briefly noticing, in terms of commendation, articles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8,-" The ninth article, on the Pyrenees, is excellently written, and treats of an extremely interesting subject. There is throughout a tone of strong sound sense, and a somewhat satirical vein, which renders it peculiarly agreeable. From this article the reader may obtain a better idea of the Pyrenees than from the perusal of two or three ordinary volumes, and be exceedingly entertained at the same time. The Number concludes with an extremely able and interesting article on Turkey, which we recommend to the attentive perusal of every reader throughout the kingdom."Weekly Review.

Number of which is now upon our table. This publication led the way in a branch of criticism hitherto much neglected; and was the first to give us able and popular accounts of the publica. tions of the continent. The four Numbers which form the first and second volumes, contain a body of information of the highest and most useful kind; and we think the fifth Number is at least equal to any of its predecessors. It boasts no fine writing; there are no brilliant effusions, calculated, like the late Mr. Canning's speeches, to captivate the ear and lead astray the judgment-but there is a variety of literary, scientific, historical, and topographical information, which will render it a valuable acquisition to any library."-Yorkshire Gazette.

The Foreign Quarterly Review,' so far as we have seen it, appears to be one of the ablest and most useful publications of the and if continued the same and with the same spirit and judgment, it cannot fail to add greatly to our stock of useful knowledge and information, and to become a standing favourite with the public. Instead of wasting its pages or our time with notices of ephemeral publications-tales of fiction and fancy, which are hardly worth the perusing, and when perused, which are not worth the remembering-the Foreign Quarterly Review' pursues a different, abler, and more profitable course. It brings before us the works of foreign authorsthe arts, sciences, history, manners and customs, and situation of foreign nations--nations as they are, and not as theory would make them; it places before us, not useless fictions, but useful realities-realities in which mankind are generally interested, and from an acquaintance with which, every individual, whether young or old, and whether the governors or the governed, must add greatly to their stock of useful knowledge, and become by this means better acquainted with the present situation of the rest of the worid. The present Number contains several important articles. The projectors and publishers of this work deserve success, and we hope will obtain it, because in obtaining it, we are convinced they will render this country a great service."Glasgow Courier.

"Five Numbers of this Journal have been issued, in fifteen months, every succeeding one of which has improved upon its predecessors; and it is not too much to say, that in that space, these have done more to spread through the general body of the British public right notions and correct information concerning foreign literature, than did all the other periodicals, however able, which only incidentally treated of foreign topics, during as many of the years preceding. At this time we have not space to enter into disquisition, however interesting the field may be, as to the present state of continental letters, and to analyse this Number also. We prefer, then, giving a copious and laboriously prepared abstract of a portion of its multifarious and admirable contents."-Glasgow Free Press.
