Mr. Mill's work has been fairly characterised in the 31st volume of the “Edinburgh Review:" -“Mr. Mill appears to possess, in perfection, the patient industry and habits of research which the work demanded ; an acute and logical mind, with very little imagination or passion, and well stored with that sort of information which such a mind, combined with such powers of application, is apt to require. He seems perfectly familiar with the modern and ancient historians and orators, and to have studied diligently the progress of all the sciences connected with government and legislation, from the earliest speculations to their most recent advances. It is not difficult, after this
character, to imagine how he has performed his task. Those parts in which picturesque description, and the power of warm and interesting narrative might have been displayed, are not made the most of by him. But in the careful investigation of facts, and of the inference to be drawn from them, in illustrating his subject by help of the widest range of historical knowledge, in discriminating between the real and apparent causes of events, in the examination of policy, in the exposition of the motives of the actors, and the consequences of their acts, in unfolding the drift of hollow states hard to be spelled,' he leaves little to be desired. Of partiality in bending facts or opinions in favour of any individual or any party, we have not discovered the least symptom; and though it may be invidious to pry into the causes of so good a quality, we are apt to attribute his merit, on this.score, to the habits of thought as much as to his love of justice.” 2785 MONTGOMERY (R.)

1829 “ I am sure that no one can peruse those two splendid volumes without feeling that their author has been able to bring to researches apparently exhausted, a stock at once of new materials and of superior sagacity, by which he has thrown considerable light upon Hindoo Chronology. And if we descend to the later periods of history, he has certainly been sutticiently fortunate to find a vast unoccupied tract to explore, in the annals of those States which he has been the first to describe. He has thus been able to combine, what few discoverers before him have had the good fortune to unite, new events with a new field, the varied drama of a history hardly known, with a theatre decked out in the most gorgeous scenery which nature can give, and the most sumptuous monuments that eastern art can add. Whether we consider the geographical, the historical, or the artistic additions to our knowledge of India communicated in this work, or the interest of the personal knowledge it contains, we may safely, I think, rank it among the most valuable, as well as among the most beautiful works upon eastern literature.”-.Wiseman. 2813 TOWNSEND (M.)
