tion, which our. Author reduces to the three following: ift, The right of making war, which the great magiftrates had under the first race, and which Charlemagne could not fuppress. 2dly, The excessive power that was intrusted with that armed magistracy, who found it so easy afterwards to divide among themselves the spoils of the monarchy. 3dly, The innumerable multitude of beneficiarics, and the imprudence of Louis le Debonnaire, in intrusting them with, or allowing them to usurp, the power of jurisdiction. Moreover, to prove, with the greater evidence, that all these causes must have really contributed to degrade the monarchy, and to turn power from its primitive channel, he shews, that in proportion as these causes disappeared, all the branches of sovereignty were gradually, though slowly, restored to their proper places by the sole influence of thoje rights, which feudal anarchy had not been able to destroy. We find also in this volume, among many other interesting articles, which we cannot even enumerate, an excellent analysis of the celebrated charter de Villis, which exhibits a complete view of the domestic economy of Charlemagne, and a curious difcufion relative to the origin of duels, and the principles on which legislation and custom ought to direct their influence with respect to that object. This eighth Volume is terminated by a perspective view of the revolutions that destroyed the ancient French monarchy, and those that restored it upon a plan more favourable to the authority of the monarch, and (as our Author pretends) to the liberty of the people.

The ninth Volume is published; but as we have not yet received it, we must reserve the more particular mention of it for another occasion.
