CORRESPONDENCE. The continuation of the Review of the 'Improred Version of the New Testament,' &c. 1 is necessarily postponed till the next month, on account of the writer's ill health and other hindrances. It should have been stated in that article, p. 37. 1. 19. after the words printed copy,' thatIn the book of the Revelation alone, Bengelius took the liberty of, inserting readings which had not appeared in any printed edition, because he found that this book had been carelessly edited from a very few MSS., comparatively modern, and not very correct : his own account is as follows; (See Sect. IV. of his Preface to the Stutgard Edition, intitled Constitutio Textus ipsius).- Textus nempe noster florem delibat editionum ręceptarum, quæ singulæ suis utique laborant nævis, conjunctæ et vero eclectico studis consociatæ multo plus sinceritatis habent, quam plerisque videatur.

Art. l. Chronicle of the Cid:: from the Spanish. By Robert Southey.
4to. pp. 510. Price 11. 5s. Longman and Co. 1808. DURING the seven centuries that have elapsed since the
death of the Cid, there has, probably, never been a time, till within the last seven months, when a large volume of half legendary history of his adventures would have had any great chance of obtaining much attention in England. Just now is the time, or rather four or five months since was the time, for calling some of the chiefs of the ancient Spanish chivalry from their long slumber, in order to assist us to extend backward into former ages our interest in the heroic character of that nation ; a nation in which we had begu'n to hope that almost every nobleman, and every peasant, was going to perform such exploits as those of the Cid, in a more righteous cause than almost any in which that hero had the fortune to display his valour. We are never content to confine our admiration to the present spirit and actions of an individual, or of a people, that, has become a favourite with us, if we can find or fancy any thing deserving to be admired, in the retrospect of its earlier times. Besides, when a people is entering on a grand and most perilous enterprise, in which it is evident that any thing less than the most heroic spirit must fail, the martial names and atchievements of its ancestors have a certain influence, a . greater, indeed, than is'warranted by the history of national
character, on our hopes of its success. When summoned to vindicate the national cause, the men surely will not hide them. ‘selves from danger among the very monuments of their heroic
progenitors; they can not be content to read and recite the * stories of invincible champions, of their own names, and, by their nativity, reflecting lustre on their own villages and towns, and yet see these towns and villages commanded and plundered by bands of foreign invaders ; they can not endure to see their country and themselves in a state to make them abhor the recollection that such renowned heroes were their forefathers :-is it possible that the Spaniards' of the present day, recalling to mind the gallant hostility which once expelled the Moors, can quietly sink down under the domination of the mo.
