Art. I, Letters from the Mediterranean: containing a Civil and

Political Account of Sicily, Tripoly, Tunis, and Malta : with Biographical Sketches, Anecdotes and Observations, illustrative of the present state of those Countries, and their relative situation with respect to the British Empire. By E. Blaquiere, Esq.

2 vol. 8vo. pp. 1052. Colburn. 1813. MR. Blaquiere is, we understand, an officer in the Royal

Navy; and the matter which forms these volumes was collected during the time that he was entrusted with the command of a small vessel in the Mediterranean, and, in the course of his professional duties, occasionally visited the countries that he describes. Combining with the profession of the author, the circumstance of his work being most humbly dedicated to his Majesty's government and the British nation,' we were not, we confess, inclined to augur very favourably of the manner in which he would acquit himself of a part of the task which it seemed scarcely possible for bim to decline, In these forebodings, however, we have been agreeably disappointed : wherever censure is due, we find him bestowing it stoutly and fearlessly; and his Majesty's government, instead of the praise they might expect from the humble’ dedication, will encounter some very pointed animadversions on the measures they have pursued with respect to Sicily, and may acquire a great deal of useful information-if they have the will and ability to profit by it.

The first of these volumes is oecupied by the account of Sicily; the second with Tripoly, Tunis, and Malia, In the first letter we find a general description of Sicily. The popudation, though the statements given of it by different persons Vol. X.
