T tlaSnbscriber, o proposig the r.-s talishment of tte Sourern Revi. w, deems it utinnecessay to refer to the history of that work, which is already in t;e poss, ssion ot the public, or to dwell on the high esimration i, which it was held both at home and Libroad. dn ring the period of its cotinnnance. Surnice it to say, that its career, though brief, was, as all admit, brilliant-creditable to the .--outh and to the whole American Union. Its failure- the rsubiect of universal regret-waws owing, it it wen known, not to a destitution of talent and public spirit, but arose lst, from its limited cir culation, which was by no means adequiate to sustain a work of such magnitude, aid 2ndly, from the political diffierences n hich agitated the country about the time of its discontinuance, dividing the friends of Southern l.ierature n. to two great parties. and pieventim that har mony of opinion and-Co-operation mu the dis. cussion of leading questions, which is desirrble in a work professedly devoted to the cause of the South and the whole South. It is proper to consider first, the utility of Reviews. regarded as organs of the literary spi rit and opinions of the age. and secondly, the imaportance and necessity of establishing snch a work at the Sotmh, at the p.eseit tnie. On the first point, it is scarcelv nrcesnrry to say mouch. in the present advam-ed stage of period ical literature. Ably conducted 'Reviews are the offspring of a high state of civilizatiorn. ansi are hebest evidence. nnw-a-dav.s. that carn he furnished of intellecntual advanceomeut. and the prevalence of a pure and elevated philosophy. l'ie inst half centur Ias produced few au thors of eminece. either in Great Britain or America. mn comparison with the half c.-nitry that preceded it, and the reasor probably is. not that there has been a want of genius. talent and scholarship in this confesedly intellectual age hit simply because distingni.led scholars have found a readier and a better oran through which tit act directly on the public mind inI Re views. than through the medium of books-the old, more tedious and more expensive methol. If therefore, it be asked, 'hat evidenrce is or can be firnished of the superior intelligence and progress of thd present ceinttry-a pro gress of which we are so apt to boast-the re ply is that it is to he ounnd in the hith character of the tuarterly Iteviews abroad and rat horne. If it he alfirmed, that we have rno native fifera tore ins this couitry, aid thereforeno inmaterials to furnish the -round work for Reviews, tie :,n swer is, that our Reviews constitut' our native literature, and that i learning and sc!iolarship arc sought for, they are to lbe found in omr Re views, which therefore should he warirly and firmly supported, as an evidence, and a fair one. of our literary pretenusions and our nationual character. Besides, nio one cause, it may be safelv aulirmued, has contributed so much to eli cit talent, to awaken literary ambhitiou, and to pI'odnece the highest order of fine arid pow~erfuil ufriting, as the establishment of Revir-ws; and marry individuals have been stimulated to ex traordinary efforts, and have been subseqiuenrtly known far and wide to fame, ini consequence ot the oprportuinities they have enjoyed arid impiro .ved, of cointriburtirng successfully to works of so influential and highly respectable a chiaract individuals, who, otherwise, in all prohnhiility. 'would never have besen tempted to test their strength on the literary arena with such compel itors as they would be likely to meet rthere. The great aim of Reviews is, to discuss sub jects learnedly,thoroingbly,profounidly-inl such a maniner as toi bear uapon thre whole social sys tern, and pro.uce a broad, deep and permnanenrt imnpressiont npon the general characrer of a peo plec: In one word, their object is to diffulse knowledge. not-to foster prejudices-to create, direct and control-not to echo opinions-to prodnce beneficial changes upon a large scale -not to pierpetuate or even tolerate existing a buses. It- is obvious, therefore, that while, in the iofancy of American literature a spirit of indulgencea has been felt and extended to tihe funks of our lighter periodicals, which are rap idly issued from the prs'ss, and which have ser ved as vehicles often for the attempts of the mere literary debutant, Qtuarterly Reviews, havintg higher aims to aceemplishr, and intend inig to represent and~ emhody, in the most p ow erfid and attractive form, thre opinions only of thre mnost enlightened whriids shouldl be con ducted with a scrupulous regard to thre purest principles of taste, and to tire elevation arid ad v.ancemrent of our literary and riational char acter. In respect to the importance and necessity of estah'ishrmg such a work at the Sonth at tire present time, there can he little dontbr irn the minds of our discerning and public spirited citizens5. We must have such a work, or feill behind tire spiuit etf the age. wich is of a pre einently inqiuisitivP andI enterprising ccharnec ter, turd the South should have such-l a work,ist only from motives of literary pride and ermurla tioti, itt ordier to keep pace with tire respecta bile ..,tr,,wS oftire othier wide, itelletrenit, etd thri vingsee:os of the American repuinc, but ahco beieianse the South has. a: the presei-t peried es pecially, cermuin great aid leading interests oi its own to promote. which can be iost effecti. alir suibserved through the instrintaiiiity of such a perioical. It is not necessary to raise :he war cry agzainst other portion: of the Unio! who may l'eef disposed, as hey often do, to dit for froei; us in their views of our agricultunl. conmmereial and po;itical iiiierests, but it is im portimt, highly so. that we shold take oi.c southern position firmly in the preseit attitude o: ur tationi aiair.: that tr position should ee cleary y known and understood. boti at hoiie and abroad; tiat we s;iot d be ready to defene ourselves and our institutions frt.in all covert tot opeti asaufts; that we should maintain lite prii ciples of the Fedend Consttition in its orit im al intention, with t firm auod tiiflinching -pirit. anid promote the cause of a pme anitd eleated literature by all the imditcemeits that can le held ont to stimulate the finoilition and pride of intellie-nt and chivalrit peoi e.

However, genius does not depeti onl schools; Elizabeth % as early diktinguish ed foar vivacity of intellect and poetical talents; and thetn siehiad the giod ih-rtunle to attract the attentio aill secure the at' iections o a contenial ind. This was Dr. l t. II. Ellet, thet Professor of Che mistry, ill Columbia Colle-e, New York. He married her when she was %ery t ounag, only about seventeen. and uder his lui lion she imanediately coammaienc-.dl tie study of the modern languages.

It 1833, she began to venture her pro auctions before the public eve. her firsi poems appearing in the Amterican Ladies' Magazine. These were very fIavoralaly reviewed, and she Iaos gono- on increasing her literary acquaintance, till she is now a regular contributor for several pr riodicals.

Gnnxm TEA, a REt.ny FOR BURNS AND ScALDS.-The Medical and Suraical Journal publishes a communication from Dr. Wheeler, of Unionville, recommend ding on experience or its good effects Green Tea as a cure for burns and scalds, The Dr. says: It is about three yearssince I first applied this article in these eases, but in this short time I have had repeated opportunities of toting its virtues. The first case in which I employed it was that of a child, three years old.whose clothes were literally burnt of from it. It was cured by this articlo alone, and notwithstanding large portions oftno only integument, but muscle also, sloughed out, the cavities were soon filled with healthy granulation, and the' cica trices formed a smooth surface. Since that time I hav*reated other cases, of .more or less severity, in the same manner, and willh similar success. Treated in this way the inflammation soon subsides, & the healing process is astonishingly rapid. Itis always necessary to keep the bowels suf liciently open with some cooling laxative, as crem, tart, or sulph, magnes. Any of t he green teas may be used. It is to be moistened with warm water to render it soft,and applied in the form ora cataplasm, Perhaps it may he more conveniently em ployed forming it into a cataplasm with itdial meal. When the burn or scald is in a situation that renders this formi im pracicable, the injured part may be kept constatly moistened with a very strong irinnsion, I should suppose the extract would he an elegant form in which it might he employed.
