ENGLISH NEWSPAPERS.-Tile newspapers and ot',( r political Journals of tillS, country are conducted witb extraordinary talent; with more in 4-1 r t j iiicc, than w;L9 ever before applied m any nation to the same of public teaching. Indeed, without talon? o? °h order, and without a variety of talent, it would h mere impossibility that an English journal'sl.ou'd sustain its existence. Perhaps it would be iml t0 s!l«w a»y exception to the rule, unless u t\Z rare case a prvlI\na1 newspaprr hilS inherited, from a past generation n sr>rt ^r rare case where a provincial newspaper has inherited W :ire ra0St Sure to be found; and thcre- ore a monopo1y of this nature is most secure where it is most intense. But, allowing for this single ex- ception, the political press of England has so much more than its fair proportion of its natural talent that for thirty years and upwards it has even acted i juriously upon the literature of the country by im- pressing too exclusive directions upon the marketab o talent of the young and the aspiring. Other mod.* of intellectual exercise have been starved or impover- ished that this might flourish exorbitantly; aud tile result is, that never amongst men has there been ;>n exhibition of so much energy, yi^ilance sagacity perseverance, as we of this day behold in our politic.il press.
