'The two books at the head of our article, which are controversial in their character, enable us to judge of the manner in which the experiment [of colonization] has hitherto been conducted. In Mr. James's book will be found a record of every blunder that has been committed… in Mr. Stephens reply will be found the defence a warm partisan, having determined to make the colony his home.'
