1818. This work is avowed in the preface to be the production of a German of rank, M. Von Fürstenu ärther. He was sent to America by his half brother, the baron Von Gagern, representative of the German possessions of the king of the Netherlands, at the German diet, a gentleman well known to such of our readers as have taken the trouble to follow the train of proceedings at Frankfort, as one of those who must bear a full portion of the blame, which attaches to that assembly, of having said much and done nothing. M. de Gagern, in an anonymous introduction to the work before us, declares that the extent, to which emigration from Germany had reached, and the belief that in the present state of things this relief of the country labouring under a 'crowded population was rather a benefit than an evil, united with a desire of rescuing the poor emigrants from the sufferings and oppressions they had hitherto endured, were the motives for sending out an ambassador to the United States. The work accordingly consists of the instructions given by M. de Gagern and his associates to the ambassador, with ex. tracts from the letters of the latter, both before and after his arrival in America, a report drawn up from those letters, and an appendix of various articles of information relative to the country, and the state of German emigrants in it, These letters, as we are informed by M. de Fürstenwärther New Series, No. 3,
