SIR H. CAVENDISH'S DEBATES OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS During the Thirteenth Parliament of Great Britain, commonly called the Unreported Parliament. To which are appended, Illustrations of the Parliamentary History of the Reign of George III., consisting of Unpublished Letters, Private Journals, Memoirs, etc. Drawn up from the Original MSS., by J. Wright, Esq., Editor of the Parliamentary History of England. In 4 vols. royal Svo. Vol. 1 is now ready, 25s. cloth. The work is also published in Parts, 6s. each, of which five are now published.
It has often been regretted that the proceedings of the House of Commons, during the thirteenth Parliament of Great Britain, which met in May 1768, and was dissolved in June 1771, should, in consequence of the strict enforcement of the standing order for the exclu sion of strangers from the gallery of the House, have remained nearly a blank in the history of the country. The debates of this period, were, however, fortunately taken down by a member of the House, Mr. Henry Cavendish, and the editor having discovered his MSS., and obtained permission to print them, they are now given to the world. The collection contains upwards of two hundred speeches by Burke, which have never seen the light; together with a number of the most valuable speeches of Mr. George Grenville, Lord North, Mr. Dunning, Mr. Thurlow, Mr. Wedderburn, Mr. Fox, Colonel Barre, Mr., afterwards Chief Justice, Blackstone, etc. etc. It embraces the whole of the stirring period of the publication of the Letters of Junius, and exhibits the feeling which prevailed in the House and in the country, previous to the unhappy contest which took place between Great Britain and her American Colonies.

This work, designed to illustrate the distinctive characters of all the most important Races, or Breeds of the Domestic Animals proper to, or naturalised in, Great Britain, consists of a series of Portraits of Animals characteristic of the different races.
In the year 1832, a grant by authority of Government, was made from the funds of the Board of Trustees of Scotland, for forming an Agricultural Museum in the College of Edinburgh. Amongst the objects which this Institution embraced, was a Collection of Paintings illustrative of the British Breeds of the Domestic Animals. This extensive branch of the Museum now embraces all the more essential Native Breeds. as well as some of Foreign Countries. The Paintings are all Portraits of Animals selected from the stocks of eminent Breeders, wherever the best examples presented themselves in any part of the kingdom. They have been executed by a distinguished artist, Mr. Shiels, of the Royal Scotch Academy, whose time has been devoted for upwards of seven years to the subject. The paintings have been made with the utmost regard to fidelity of representation, so that all the essential characters of external form may be shewn. From this fine collection the materials for the present work are derived; and such a selection has been made from the Originals as to fulfil the purpose of illustration, without extending the work beyond the limits proper to assign to it.
