After the letter of Lord Anglesea to Mr. Kertland, he cannot be a party to any measure which would stain his fair fame with the taint of falsehood. Oh! that at least is utterly impossible; and serving under a Whig Administration (for Lord Anglesea is not himself a Whig) can never so blight the high honour of Lord Anglesea as to expose him to the reproach of saying one thing when out of office, and directly the reverse when in power. That is, of all impossible things, the most impossible.

THE Letter to the LABOURERS OF ENGLAND, which is in another part of this Register, will form the matter for the 7th NUMBER of the Two-PENNY TRASH, which Number is published this day (1st January, 1831), price 2d, with the usual allowance to booksellers, and sold at my shop for ready money, at IIs. a hundred to those who take three hundred or more at once. This is hardly paying for the paper and print; but, as they are intended for the working people, and as the parsons want to enlighten the people, here is the light for them. Every landlord, farmer, and shopkeeper, must see how useful this little publication must be, how directly it tends to make the people abstain from all violence, by pointing out to them a legal and just means of relief; every man of sense must see this; and here he sees that 11s. will enable him to quiet and enlighten a whole district.
bring this work into the Register, as it goes on, as well as the TRASH. These monthly numbers cannot go through the post-office for want of the stump. They, therefore, more slowly; and I want them to go over the country as fast as horses' legs can carry them. I want them to fly to Paris and to New York, as well as to Edinburgh and Dublin; and I cannot make them do this, unless I put them into the Register. I shall, therefore, still publish them in Numbers, to go into a book; but I shall publish them in the Register at the same time; so that the readers of the Register will have them, as well as the matter of the Register, which, for that purpose, must raise to 1s. 2d., making the price and the deduction to newsmen twice as much as to a rascally and stupid broad sheet. The Trash will be published in the Register on the FIRST of every month, and a Number of the History on the FIFTEENTH of every month; and thus they will all three fly on the wings of the post-office, and produce, at once, their intended, or, at least, their natural impression. I shall be told, that this is putting the Register still further out of the reach of the poor. It has been out of their reach ever since 1817; and what beasts must those be, who ascribe the discontents of the Labourers, to whom Benett and his comrades allowed a gallon loaf a week and less than a halfpenny a day for all their pay, to this publication! The readers of the Register will now have to pay the newsmen Ss. 4d. a year in addition, but, for this they will have (and postage free too) 12 numbers of the History of George IV., and 12 gumbers of the Trash. This is my arrangement, and according to this arrangement I shall publish next week. The number 4 of the History will appear in the Register of the 15th instant, and it will relate to the trick by which PERCEVAL kept out the WHIGS in 1811. It is at this very moment that the transactions of the Regency and reign of George IV., ought to be brought under the eye of the public.

THE HISTORY OF THE PROTESTANT "REFORMATION," showing how that event has impoverished and degraded the main body of the people in those countries; in a series of letters, addressed to all sensible and just Englishmen. This is the Title of the Work, which consists of Two Volumes, the first containing the Series of Letters above described, and the second containing a List of Abbeys, Priories, Nunneries, and other Religious and charitable Endowments, that were seized on and granted away by the Reformers to one another, and to their minions. The List is arranged according to the Counties, alphabetically, and each piece of property is fully stated, with its then, as well as its actual value; by whom founded and when; by whom granted away, and to whom.-Of this Work there are two Editions, one in Duodecimo, price 4s. 6d. for the first Volume, and 3s. 6d. for the second; and another in Royal Octavo, on handsome paper, with marginal Notes, and a fuil Index. This latter Edition was printed . for Libraries, and there was consequently but a limited number of Copies struck off: the Price 1. 11s. 6d. in Extra Boards. A FRENCH GRAMMAR; or, Plain Instructions for the Learning of French. The notoriously great sale of this Book is no bad criterion of its worth. The reason of its popularity is its plainness, its simplicity. I have made it as plain as I possibly could: I have encountered and overcome the difficulty of giving clear definitions: I have proceeded in such a way as to make the task of learning as little difficult as possible. The price of this book is 5s. in boards. ROMAN HISTORY. Of this Work, which is
in French and English, and is intended, not only as a History for Young People to read, but as a Book of Exercises to accompany my French Grammar, I am only the Translator: but I venture to assert that the French is as pure as any now extant. In Two Volumes. Price 13s. in Boards.
THE LAW OF TURNPIKES; or, an Analytical Arrangement of, and Illustrative Commentaries on, all the General Acts, relative to Turnpike Roads. By WILLIAM COBBETT, Jun., Student of Lincoln's Inn. Price 3s. 6d. boards. COTTAGE ECONOMY. I wrote this Work professedly for the use of the Labouring and Middling Classes of the English Nation; and I knew that the lively and pleasing manner of the writing would cause it to have many readers, and that thus its substance would get handed to those who could not read. I made myself acquainted with the best and simplest mode of making Beer and Bread, and these I made it as plain as, I believe, words could make it. It was necessary, further, to treat of the keeping of Cows, Pigs, Bees, and Poultry, matters which I understood as well as any body could, and in all their details; and I think it impossible for any one to read the Book without learning something of utility in the management of a Family. It includes my Writings also on the Straw Plait. A Duodecimo Volume. Price 2s. 6d.

THE ENGLISH GRAMMAR; a New Edition. Of this Work, from first to last, Sixty Thousand Copies have been sold; and I verily believe that it has done more to produce real education, as far as correct writing and speaking go, than any book that ever was published. I have received from the year 1820, to the present time, continual thanks, by word of mouth and by letter, from young men, and even from old men, for this work, who have said, that, though many of them had been at the University, they never rightly understood Grammar till they studied this work. I have often given the Reviewers a lash for suffering this Work to pass them unreviewed; but I have recently discovered that the newly-published EDINBURGH ENCYCLOPEDIA says of it, that, "for all com
mon purposes, it is the best Treatise we possess, and that it is entitled to super"sede all the popular, and many of the "scientific, productions on the subject of our language," The price of this book is 3s. in boards.
