Bartholomé Lobo Guerrero, y publicadas en la Synodo Dio-
cesana del año de 1613.

En los Reyes (Lima.)
Folio.
First printed in Lima in 1614. This volume contains also a reprint of the

Synod of 1636 ; and various edicts of the Archbishop of Lima, issued in

the same year in which the volume was printed. 13 AMERICANISCHES ACKERWERK Gottes: oder zuverlässige

nachrichten den zustand der Americanisch, Englischen,
und von Salzburgischen Emigranten erbauten Pfantzstadt
Ebenezer in Georgien betreffend aus dorther eingeschickten
glaubwurdigen Diarien genommen, und mit Briefen der dasi-
gen herren Prediger noch weiter bestattiget. Herausgegeben
von Samuel Urlsperger.

Augsburg.
Small 4to. Vol. 1.
The second volume of this work, which is a continuation of the Ausführliche

Nachrichten, 1735, was published in 1755 ; the third, in 1756, with a
supplement in 1760. A fourth volume, apparently unknown to Meusel,
was published by Johann August Urlsperger in 1767. The honest
Saltzburgers, who formed the settlement of Ebenezer, on the Savannah
river, appear to have been as industrious with their pens as with their
ploughs: the printed books relating to their little colony would form a
small library.

a

1. The defenceless condition of our plantations, and to what 1755.
causes owing. 2. Pernicious tendency of the French encroach-
ments, and the fittest methods of frustrating them. 3. What
it was that occasioned their present invasion, and the claims
on which they ground their proceedings. With a proper ex-
pedient proposed for preventing future disputes. In two
letters to a friend.

“The defenceless condition of our plantations is by this author ascribed to

a disunion among our colonies in North America, an abuse of power in
former governors, and the defection of our Indian allies ; which last he
imputes to our 'ill treatment, of those allies. The second letter is
intended to give a general view of the British colonies, and the number of
inhabitants, which, our author thinks, ought to be placed at about
900,000. We must remark that this gentleman does not pretend to any
personal knowledge of the countries he treats of, nor have we any assu-
rance of the authenticity of his relations or computations : however, 'tis

certain he has made some very pertinent reflections." M. R. xii. p. 483. 4 OBSERVATIONs on the late and present conduct of the French,

with regard to their encroachments upon the British colonies
in North America : together with remarks on the importance
of those colonies to Great Britain. By William Clarke, M.D.

another hand, observations concerning the increase of mankind,
peopling of countries, &c.

Monthly Review, vol. xiii. p. 400.
5 The French ENCROACHMENT. EXPOSED; or, Britain's original

right to all that part of the American continent claimed by
France fully asserted : wherein it appears that the honour
and interest of Great Britain are equally concerned, from the
conduct of the French for more than a century past, to vindi-
cate her rights, &c.

"The author's zeal for his country is expressed in furious declamation

against its enemies, and in these declamations his merit, as a writer, seems

chiefly to consist.” M. R. xiii. p. 508. 6 Two LETTEPs to a friend on the present critical conjuncture of affairs in North America.

London.

London. 8vo. This performance seems more especially intended as an introduction to the

following: 13 A MISCELLANEOUS ESSAY, concerning the courses pursued by

“After baving pointed out the inconveniences the inhabitants of our Ame-

rican colonies are exposed to, for want of sufficient checks on their gover-
nors, our author hopes that it will be thought for the service of the crown
and of the subject to regulate offices so as to bring every matter of im-
portance to the view of the crown, &c. The reasons urged in favor of
these regulations are plausible, if not altogether convincing, and have the
merit of being modestly offered. The author appears to us to have taken
much pains to inform himself on the subject he has considered, and is far

from being a mean writer." M. R. xii. p. 153.
14 A BRIEF STATE of the province of Pennsylvania, in which the

conduct of their Assemblies for several years past is imparti-
ally examined, and the true cause of the continual encroach-
ments of the French displayed, more especially the secret
design of their late unwarrantable invasion and settlement
upon the river Ohio. To which is annexed, an easy plan for
restoring quiet in the public measures of that province, and
defeating the ambitious views of the French in time to come.

Pennsylvania to his friend in London. The second edition. 8vo. pp. 45.

From the answer to this pamphlet it would appear that its author was

Parson Smith,probably the Rev. William Smith, author of Discourses,
&c. 1759, assisted, according to a ms. note in a copy of the same work,
by Dr. Franklin. See Monthly Review xii. p. 192, where several pages

of extracts from it will be found.
15 An answer to an invidious pamphlet intituled A brief state of

the province of Pennsylvania. Wherein are exposed the
many false assertions of the author or authors, of the said
pamphlet, with a view to render the Quakers of Pennsylvania
and their government obnoxious to the British parliament and
ministry; and the several transactions, most grossly misrepre-
sented therein, set in their true light.

London.
8vo. pp. 80.
Written, according to a ms. note on the title, by Mr. Cross, a Counsellor, a

long time resident in North America.In the “ Brief View,1756, this
answer is "said to be the production of one + formerly an attorney's clerk,
wbo was convicted of forgery, sentenced to be hanged, but after some time
obtained the favour of transportation ; and did us the honour to take up his
residence in this province,” &c.
