THE following Essays by a Contributor to the 'Saturday Review' are reprinted without alteration. Though not inserted in the order of their first appearance, no system of arrangement has been attempted; nor is system practicable, where the only connection between different subjects is to be found in all being treated from the point of view of a single writer's personal experience.
