They are entirely occupied with his correspondence. There are 4000 letters written by him-two-thirds are in French, the other third, chiefly on military operations, are in German, and were addressed to his generals. The whole letters belong to the state archives. The edition of the great Frederick's works, now in course of publication, was undertaken by order of the present King of Prussia, and at his expense.
LORD JOHN RUSSELL announced in the House of Commons his intention to bring forward next session a bill for the erection of a new National Gallery,-either in the immediate vicinity of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, or within the Gardens themselves. This announcement was, it is said, received in the House with a general murmur of acquiescence.

FOUNDED ON THE LARGER GERMAN-LATIN LEXICON OF DR. WILLIAM FREUND: WITH ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS
LEXICONS OF GESNER, FACCIOLATI, SCHELLER, GEORGES, &c.
"We have examined this book with considerable attention, and have no hesitation in saying it is the best Dictionary of the Latin Language that has yet appeared."--LITERARY Gazette.
EXTRACT FROM THE EDITOR'S PREFACE.
The basis of the new Latin Lexicon here offered to the public consists of a translation of the Wörterbuch der Lateinischen Sprache of Dr. Wilhelm Freund, which was published at Leipsic in four volumes, containing in all about 4500 pages in the following order: vol. i. (A-C) appeared in 1834; vol. iv. (R-Z) in 1840; vol. ii. (D-K) in 1844: and vol. iii. (LQ) in 1845. In the latter year the Author published, also, a smaller school lexicon in two volumes, comprising about 1800 pages, from which some corrections have been adopted in preparing the present work. From this has also been taken Appendix B, containing lists of words from the Italian and French languages derived from the Latin, whose origin is more or less obscured by the euphonic changes they have undergone. An'

examination of the lists will show the student the nature of the changes suffered by Latin words passing into either of those languages, and will enable him to refer without difficulty almost any Latin word found in them to its original. The Lexicons of Gesner, Facciolati, Scheller, and Georges, have likewise been made use of for the purpose of supplying occasional deficiencies in those of Dr. Freund.
HIGHNESS THE PRINCE CONSORT.
"We remember no history of Columbus which we have read with so much pleasure."-STANDARD.
The object which the Editor has proposed to himself and his associates in the preparation of the work has been to condense these materials within the convenient limits of a single volume, and yet to preserve everything of real importance for general use in the larger lexicon of Dr. Freund.
