ERRATA.

THE reader is requested to correct the following errata, which occur in the two last
numbers of Vol. IV.

P. 345, line 24 from the top, for Christiana, read Christina.

P. 347, place a semicolon after the words "to prove," line 18 from the top; and for the
word" that," which immediately follows, read "but."

Same page, line 9 from the bottom, for Socinius, read Socinus.

P. 432, dele the article a before "banditti," in lines 15 and 22 from the bottom.

P. 436, top line, for "volume," read "volumes."

P. 448, dele "he," line 23 from the top,

P. 499, lines 12 and 24 from the top, for "Botany Bay." read" Bantry Bay."

In the Index, the references to Mr. Buckingham's Travels, in Mesopotamia, were
omitted. The reader must therefore be directed to that work by the table of contents,
which is prefixed to the fourth volume.

obliquities, describes the history of manifold progression in all that con-
stitutes our improvement and our celebrity; but, if it be contemplated
only in separate divisions, without reference to its relations as a whole; if
we consider it merely as a casual succession of distinct and detached
fragments, or connect our feelings with the rise and fortunes of the par-
ticular kingdoms and populations that have glittered and passed away,
