Animal bones have also been found in caves in Europe and there has been a similar recent find near Maidstone, Kent. Buckland suggests that the bones date from a time "anterior to the deluge of Noah". Ranking dates the bones much later, suggesting they are from captive wild animals shown in nearby Roman amphitheatres. Other remains (of elephants and mammoths) in Behring`s Straits, Ranking believes came from animals belonging to the Turks, Moguls and Chinese and carried by river to the Arctic. The Athenaeum waits for the bones to be compared with those of modern animals]

Topic: [Response to an article outwith the Athenaeum. This is "the last number" of the "Quarterly Review". The relevant piece is entitled "Condition of the Lower Orders". The Athenaeum essay is a discussion of the emergent discipline of political economy and the debate as to its "nature", with reference to the issue of "consolidating small farms". Is "political economy" a pure science or a set of rules for conduct based on practical experience? Might its development resemble the development of other disciplines, as, for example the emergence of astronomy from astrology, from an omnipotent to a marginal status in the affairs of mankind, finally to attain the status of a pure science? The writer eventually seems to suggest that the "management of the state" is best served by a combination of practical sense and philosophy]

The author, "Caroline" (the Athenaeum refers the reader to "Conversations on Political Economy" between "Mrs. B." and "Caroline") particularly objects to one inference of "On Oikology", that those who embrace the science of political economy support a policy of consolidating small farms and ejecting small tenants.

It starts with a scarcely veiled, vitriolic attack upon Mullens, (Johnson has trodden, in the scenario, "upon a fat aristocratic spaniel, who is made to feel the horrors of all sudden revolutionary transitional social movements".) It ends with a fiercely eloquent defence of the science of political economy.]
