From the preface: The year 1821 has been fruitful in important events. The Revolution of Naples has been brought to a termination with rapidity not less extraordinary than its birth was sudden. Piedmont has been made the theatre of a revolution, which, after a few days feverish existence, expired before the terror of the Austrian arms. In Spain, the spirit of innovation has gone on triumphant in its career of madness ~ Turkey, too, has presented a scene of continued disorder; the Albanian insurrection has maintained itself; two insurrections to the north of the Danube have been suppressed; and a fourth, that of Greece and its islands, has, amid outrages and butcheries disgraceful to humanity, acquired so much strength, as to render the struggle with the Ottoman power of exceedingly dubious issue. ~ Beyond the Atlantic, the year has witnessed the establishment of the independence of Columbia, and the fall of the Spanish power in Mexico and Peru. Brazil, too in abolishing its old institutions, has taken a great step towards he complete dissolution of the ties that bind it to Portugal. History of Europe includes: Sir J. Mackintoshs's Bill for the Mitigation of the Punishment of Forgery, Mr. Kennedy's Bill for Removing Defects in the Constitution of Scotch Juries, Agricultural Distress, The State of the Slave Trade and the backwardness of the Governments of Europe in abolishing that Traffic, Repeal of the Additional Tonnage on American Ships, Explosion in the Tuilleries, The Conduct of the Norwegian Storthing, German West Indian Company, Disturbed State of Madrid, Riego's Disgrace, Accusation of Count Zurlo and the Duke of Campo Chiaro, Miserable State of the Neapolitan People, Revolution in Turin, Naval Superiority of the Greeks, War in the Morea, Expedition of the Pacha of Egypt into Ethiopia, and final Extirpation of the Mamelukes, Surrender of La Guayra and Carthagena, Administration of Rivadavia, Operations of the Fleet under Lord Cochrane, Seizure of British Ships, Military Operations in India and Arabia. Narratives, trials, public documents, state papers, etc. Include: Massacre at Manilla (sic) , Testament of Napoleon, Manasseh Gouldstein for Forgery, First Report on the Foreign Trade of the Country, Report relative to the Trade with the East Indies and China, Manifesto of the Government of the two Sicilies, Narrative of Schill's Resistance to France, in 1809, Fate of the Last Remnant of the Vardarelli Band of Robbers, Culture of Opium in Great Britain, Rocket Experiments in India, Method of Saving Lives in Cases of Shipwreck or Fire, Mr. Timbrell's Improvement in the Rudder and Steerage of Ships.
