Biographical and Critical Introduction, and Portrait after Sir
Joshua Reynolds. 2 vols. imp. 8vo. pp. lxxxvi, 1278. London,

1834. THE works of Edmund Burke are, to the politician, what the 1 works of the Fathers are to the theologian, an invaluable treasury of wisdom and eloquence, and an armoury of polemical weapons; and, like them, they furnish authority for the most opposite opinions, so that no one, whatever be his political creed, can fail to find in them something to suit his taste and purpose. Whether, with the acute and able Author of the critical estimate prefixed to the present edition of his works, we ascribe it to the independence of his mind, or whether we account for it by some degree of versatility grafted upon a comprehensive understanding, or by the length of his career, which necessitated his speaking and writing on all subjects under so various predicaments, so it is, that many of his opinions are to be found in the creeds of 'all parties; most of them in some ; but all of them in none.' Consistency of opinion must not be confounded or identified with consistency of principle: the latter is a virtue, the former a perfection of wisdom, to which few of the most gifted minds have attained. The one is demanded by integrity ; the other may, by running into obstinacy, degenerate into a fault. Opinions are to principles as accidents to essential substances; and they necessarily partake so much of prejudice and occasion, as to change their colour and aspect under such fluctuating influences. A man's unripe notions will never have the flavour of his maturer knowledge, even if he undergo, in the mean time, no moral revolution. Moreover, as life advances, a wise man, while he becomes more firmly attached to the practical principles which govern his life, and shape and sustain his hopes, becomes less confident in the certainty and efficiency of his opinions, as the calculations of
