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]

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.]

Topic: [The trip of a party of Germans to the erupting crater of Vesuvius, described in detail by Herr Waiblinger. Emotive writing personifying the volcano which is called "Fra Diavolo" and giving the subjective impressions of the writer, is mixed with writing which attempts to assess the dimensions of the crater, the height of the cinder cones, the pace and intensity of the activity, the course and heat of the lava stream. The writer resolves the tensions between the two aspects of his own account by projecting the spirit of "scientific" enquiry onto his companions. "They", he claims, were determined "to examine the crater in a thorough truly German manner". He did not feel the need to enter the crater; he "seated [himself] comfortably" and "contemplated the rich colours in this mighty volcano" ]

He says that his account of Syria, which has now been "so often described", must go beyond both physical and social geography and "introduce physical observations of every kind". So he concentrates on the weather and how he and his companions manage to survive their journey in the heat by being active in the morning and resting in the hottest hours. The charms which compensate for the discomfort are making a camp at night, either preparing simple food or receiving hospitality "from a numerous tribe of friendly Arabs" and feeling independent of European society]
