Φιλοσοφίαν δε ου την Στωικην λεγω, ουδε την Πλατωνικην, η την Επικουρειον τε

δικαιοσυνην μετα ευσεβούς επιστημης εκδίδασκονία, τουτο συμπαν το ΕΚΛΕΚΤΙΚΟΝ
φιλοσοφίαν φημι.

THE

ECLECTIC REVIEW,

FOR JANUARY, 1813.

Art. I. Memoirs of the Political and Private Life of James Caulfield, Earl of Charlemont, Knight of St. Patrick, &c. By Francis Hardy, Esq. Member of the House of Commons in the three last parliaments of Ireland. 4to. pp. 443. Cadell and Davies. 1810.

WE are of opinion that Ireland is one of the most important subjects which, at the present juncture, can engage the attention of British politicians, -and that this biographical performance is one of the very few instructive books which have been written on the subject of Ireland. It is also, we think, an entertaining book; on which account, we should hope, it s:ands a good chance of being generally read, and of helping strongly to diffuse that acquaintance with Irish affairs, which the relation of the two countries, at the present epoch, renders of so much importance. For these reasons we make no scruple of assigning a conspicuous place to this volume in the present number of our journal, notwithstanding that Ireland formed a prominent topic of discussion in our last. In attending to Mr. Dewar moreover, we had chiefly to consider him as a reporter of facts, relating to the "manners and customs" of the irish. Mr. Hardy, on the other hand, conducts us into a wide field of political speculation. Having, therefore, laid before our readers the remarks of a sensible observer on the actual condition of our sister conntry, we may with the greater propriety invite their attention to some of those leading circumstances which have been the means of placing it in that condition.

Mr. Hardy's book may be not unaptly termed the gossiping history of Ireland during all that period in which, to any good purpose, Ireland can be said to have had a history. When we say gossiping we use the word, however, in the best sense. We We use it to express those historical topics which most naturally, that is, most frequently, form the subject of conversation VOL. IX.
