HOWX'S HISTORY OF THE GREEK
REVOLUTION.
Extracts from a Review, by the Boston Yankee , of
"Howe'sGreek Revolution," just published.
This work is a credit to our country, and is al-
together so well digested, and so well written, that
the author, if he were to die tô-morrow, or sail
back fore.ver to the land " ofgods and godlike rnen,"
weald be safe. A future edition might be correct-
ed by any body. The faults are few, and so bare-
faced, that he would have nothing to fear from the
judgement of posterity. It would be seen at a glance
that they were not so much errors of opinion, or
judgement, or fact, as of orthography uud gram-
mar.
The work-is divided into seven books, and thirty
two chapters ; and so much ot a complete history,
that we need go no further in search of information
about Greece. We have it here, full enough anil)
particular enough, to satisfy not only the general ;
reader, hut the politician, the lover of biography,;
and the philospher. The introduction, which is a ;
sort of general view of Greece, from her old days ;
of beauty and strength up to those of her transtigu
ration, is a well written paper; and when l say j
this. I meanjust what l say, that the paper is well !
written ; good thoughts- worded in proper lan- !
It would be quite impossible to give, the reader j
any other Ilian a general idea of the book in a pa-1

energy, where the occasion calls for it, and with
beauty where beauty is needed.—let tis offer the

they would clasp their hands convulsively over their eyes,

shall never forget the scene presented by some
en who had escaped from Scio, on hearing the re
port that a body of Turks were marching on the place
where we were; their shrieks—tearing their hair—and
he ttlng their bosoms—with the frantic hop or of their coun
tenances, gave a forcible idea ot what terrible scenes
they must have witnessed, since the bare fear of their repe
tition occasioned such emotion."—p. 117, H8.

And if we would know why the followers of Ma
hommed are so unsparing in their hatred anti wrath,
and why the Greeks are what they are—phrensied
imitators of the Turks, even when they depart most
idely from the usages of European warfare ; do
ing that in the wreck and overthrow of their proud
faculties, which the barbarians do deliberately or in
play, we have only to road a verse in the Koran :
" When you are with the infidels, kill them ; cut
off their heads, tie them, put them into the fire, keep
them as slaves, or make them pay a ransom, as you
may judge best,
not to persecute them until they shall be submitted
to you."— p. 1G0.
That Philopocmen was not the last ofthe Greeks;
and that he, the banished man,who fled away into a far
country, the country of his mortal foe—appearing in
themidst of his family and household gods as if lie
started op out ofthe earth, to make him feel that had
even there it was not safe to trample on a native
Greek, and that a suppliant and a fugitive though he
, he had the power to take a hostage on the spot,
and the bravery tostipulate with a destroyer, not for
guardianship, nor vulgar safety, but for the wealth
of cities—that he was but one Phemistocles of the

youthful Marco Bolaarts : I
Me entered by night the castle of the besieged Ali j
I'ashaw, and thus addressed him : 'Ah, the Sulintes, your
old enemies, and whom you, after so long a struggle, drove
from their country, and whose country you now liold, have
from this moment, a common interest with you. If you
will give to us our mountains and the fortresses ; pay usa
sum of money to send to our families, who are in a foreign
land; and deliver to us your nephew as hostage for your
