FOR APRIL, 1815.

Art. 1.- The Physiognomical System of Drs. Gall and Spurzheim,

founded on an Anatomical and Physiological Examination of the Nervous System in general, and on the Brain in particular ; and indicating the Dispositions and Manifestations of the Mind. By J. G. Spurzheim, M.D. 8vo. pp. 556. price 11. 10s. London, Baldwin and Co. 1815.

THE public, that many headed Proteus, assuming in turn

every modification of character, is in no small degree ambitious of the proud honours of Athenian Philosophy. Every thing

by turns, and nothing long'--it continues, under every changing aspect, its restless pursuit of " some new thing ;" transferring with equal ease and celerity its attention from one species of excitement to another, perhaps of the most opposite description; embracing in succession all subjects, whether of temporary or of infinite interest, with short-lived intensity of ardour; and preserving with respect to all, the tone and jurisdiction of a final arbiter.

In the homage which is paid by all classes to this mysterious personage, it seems that the worship of the goddess Multitude is still perpetuated. We know not what were the rites of that ancient idolatry : possibly it consisted of the same intellectual offerings with which the same indefinite entity is still propitiated. A battle or a pageant, a hero or an actor, a fanatical impostor or a philosophical lecturer, might, in those days, perhaps, have furnished in succession the amusement of the fickle goddess. The sorcery of chemistry would not then have attracted less attention, than the discoveries of modern science did a few years since among our literary Vol. III.-N. S.
