THE LION'S HEAD.

In compliance with the request of several Correspondents, our readers will perceive that we have entered somewhat more fully into the Reviewing Department of our Magazine. “ Amongst the endless variety of literary journals, many of them conducted with ability, some with impara tiality, there are few,” it is said, “ which are properly-Reviews. The two leading Works, under this denomination, are, for the most part, collections of Essays, and those chiefly political. The minor publications of the same class are but partially devoted to their professed object, and are ratherseries of Extracts, than Reviews. Critiques, exclusively dedicated to one purpose—the due valuation of literary pretensions,-yet embracing all subjects; Reviews, having for their sole object, literature in the abstract, and as their chief end, the information of the public on the cotemporary issue of the press, so that society shall not become the purchaser of folly nor the patron of vice, but the friend of genius, industry, and learning,—are still wanting.” The LONDON MAGAZINE will endeavour to supply this deficiency.

J. C.'s Review of the “ Pilgrim's Tale,” is not one on which we should wish to stake any part of our reputation. Judging from the present specimen, we have some doubt of his abilities, though none whatever of his willingness, “ to become a regular contributor.” We, however, put no Veto on his exertions.

A press of matter obliges us to postpone the able Review and Examination of the “ Plan for the Government and liberal Instruction of Boys, in large Numbers.” Our next number will be the better for it.

We must shelter ourselves under the same excuse for the non-publication of Mr. Farren’s “ Essay on Hamlet” this month ; but it shall certainly appear in our next :-our great Poet is only now beginning to receive that portion of attention which his genius may fairly arrogate.
