To the opinions of these learned men, we beg leave to subscribe our own; which, though we do it without any peremptory assertion J, may merit some respect, and lay claim to some influence. For we have carefully and accurately perused all the remaining fragments of Sextius, both in Greek and Latin, and have coolly and deliberately examined all the authors, whether ancient or modern, who have delivered their sentiments on this subject.
With a list of the writers who have mentioned our Philosopher, we (hall conclude this account.

This small, though useful addition to our narrative, will enable Clericus, and our learned Readers, to examine for themselves, at greater leisure, and at greater length, than our limits or our time will allow us to do, on the present occasion.

G E N E R A*L INDEX MONTHLY REVIEW,
From its Commencement, to the End of the Seventieth Volume. By the Rev. S. AYSCOUGH,
COMPILER OF THE CATALOCUt OF UNDESCRIBED MANUSCRIPTS IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM.
Containing a Catalogue of the Books and Pamphlets characterized, with the Size and Price of each Article, and References to the Reviews wherein the Account of them, with the Booksellers' Names, are inserted. Also an Insex to the principal Extracts, Obftrvations, and remarkable Passages. Sold by T. Becket, Pall Mall. * AT length this Complement, so long and so frequently called for by our Readers, haih made its appearance; and we hope it will answer the expectations of those who have been so desirous of such a publication.—Of the manner in which the Work hath been executed, some idea may be formed, by attending to the following extract from the Compiler's Preface.
•' The First Volume contains an Index to the Titles, Authors' Names-, Sizes and Prices, of .ill the Books and Pamphlets (digested under their respective classes) which are characterized in the Review?, from the beginning of the Work, in 17-19, to the end of the SevenTieth Volume, which was finished in the year 1784.
"In respect ti the Prices of Books and Pamphlets, they are given as they stand in the Reviews. The names of the Booksellers and Publishers will be found in the Reviews themselves; to which the reader is constantly directed, by the First Volume, or Catalogue part, as we may term it, of this Work.
"For the accommodation of those who may wi(h to know what hath been written by or concerning any particular Author, during the period of the Reviews, an Iwntx to Ail tl e Names is added to the Table of Contents, of which the First Voiume consists.
"In the Second Volume is given an Index to the principal Extracts, Observations, and remarkable Passages. As these materials could not be so properly arranged in Classes as those of the First Volume, they are wholly comprehended under one Goneral Alphabet; and the particulars are literally copied from the original Indexes, subjoined to the different Volumes of the Review."
* To what Mr. A. hath observed, we need only to add one remark, 'viz. That even to readers who are not possessed of sets of the Review, these volumes will be of great use, as they may, with strict truth, be affirmed to comprehend the molt general, and most complete priced Catalogue that ever was offered to the Public.
'It may be further observed, with respect to those whose sets of the Review are incomplete, that to such persons, this publication will be found peculiarly useful, as it will, in some measure, supply the want of those volumes of Review in which their sets are deficient, and which, perhaps, are no where to be procured.'
