the Dissenters have the Non-Conformist,
and the Bulwark;
the Methodists, the British Banner,
and the Wesleyan Times;
The Roman Catholic Church, the Tablet,
and the Weekly Register.
The small towns have generally their weekly gazettes, whilst such a city as Edinburgh
has eighteen, and Glasgow
thirty, besides their daily papers.
Politically, the London Times
represents the public opinion, and its wonderful mobility seems its pervading spirit.
