The Fortunes of Nigel, (that is the name of the next of the Waverley Novels,) will be out in a few months. The collisions of English and Scottish Characters, Manners, and Interests, during the queer days of the British Solomon, are to furnish, we hear it whispered, the Materials of this next tragi-comedy.
Some Passages of the Life of Mr Adam Blair, Minister of the Gospel at Cross meikle, One Volume Post Octavo, will be published in a few days. This Work is one which may be expected to make as powerful an impression on the public mind as any thing that has of late appeared. We think it fair to say so, after having been permitted to look over some of the proofsheets-because the author's choice of a title is, we think, likely to excite a totally erroneous notion in regard to his object. The book is in reality a very elegant and amusing Romance-and so far as we may judge, not unlikely to become the Scottish Vicar of Wakefield. It affords a very stri
king contrast to the Author of Waverley's manner of viewing certain very interesting subjects; and a still more striking one to that of the Author of the Annals of the Parish.
