Art. I. 1. A Treatise upon the Poor Laws. By Thomas Peregrine

Courtenay, Esq. M.P. 8vo. 1818. 2. Considerations on the Impolicy and Pernicious Tendency of the Poor

Laws; with Remarks on the Report of the Select Committee of the House of Commons upon them; and Suggestions for improving the Condition of the Poor. By Charles Jerram, A.M.

Laws, published by Order of the House of Commons, with Observa.

the Labouring Classes of Society. By John Barton. 8vo. 1817. 5. An Inquiry into the Nature of Benevolence, chiefly with a view to

elucidate the Principles of the Poor Laws, and to show their

immoral Tendency. By J. E. Bicheno, F.L.S. 8vo. 1817. 6. Minutes of Evidence taken before the Committee appointed to consider

of the several Petitions relating to Ribbon Weavers. Ordered by the House of Commons to be printed, 18th March, 1818. TORE than four hundred volumes on the subject of the

Poor Laws, are enumerated by Şir Frederick Eden, and still this vast and intricate subject, vast as regards its bearings upon human happiness, and intricate on account of its involving in the discussion the fundamental principles of political science, is continuing to employ and to baffle the sagacity of our legislators and philosophers. Not fewer than sixty-six statutes (forty of the number during the present reign) have been passed since the famous 43d of Elizabeth, (which was itself a digest of all the existing laws on the subject,) in order to give perfection to the present system. And now, the eventual abolition of the whole, the clearance of the Statute-Book from the total Duisance of the Poor Laws, is represented as the only adequate remedy for this gigantic mischief,the political plague of Vol. X.
