LITERATURE. THE SIEGE OF SEVASTOPOL* The *tmy of the Crimean war awakens io Ihe mo^d of every Englishman who really lores his Conn try sensations in which regret, not unmingled with shame, are at least as predomi nant at the pride of military prowess and eventual success. In none of the many wan I which the United Kingdom has waged during the hat two centnriee has the native courage of it* soldiery been more brilliantly displayed, but in none was the rottenness of it* military system more painfully laid open. The fight of Inkermann recall* and rivals the stern valour of Albuem. The uncomplaining fortitude with which both the officer*, many of them heretofore the spoilt darling* of fortune, and the soldiers, from first to last endured the oold, wet, famine, and disease of that terrible winter | of 185t-'66, equals anything in the long i catalogue of British sufferings enoountered with patience and by patience overcome.
