Times of London: "Every page teems with intelligence equally curious and startling in relation to the designs of these confederated workmen, the dexterity of their machinations, and the vast extent of their power."
The Gentleman's Magazine: "for the information which we embody in our pages, we are chiefly indebted to a pamphlet recently published, the author of which appears to be perfectly conversant with the nature and tendency of these extensive, mischievous, and misguided coalitions."
Chronicle: "A very valuable pamphlet, the writer is fully acquainted with all the arcana of these formidable and mischievous associations. Many of his statements will make a great impression on all men of any reflection, and we earnestly recommend the perusal of the pamphlet, as calculated to be of great service at this time."
The Monthly Review: "This is a very extraordinary exposition and must command the deepest attention of the public... We only have room for expressing our admiration of the zeal of the writer, for his success in the inquiry, and for his luminous representation of gigantic abuses, the very sight of which, under his graphic powers, will astound and produce, no doubt, a most salutary error in the whole British community."
British Magazine and Monthly Register of Religious and Ecclesiastical Information, Parochial History, and Documents Respecting the State of the Poor, Progress of Education, etc.: "This pamphlet, which has been already translated into French, deserves general attention from the very curious information which its acute and industrious author has collected on a subject likely to occupy one's thoughts for several years to come."
Blackwood's "'Were we asked,' says the excellent author of Character, Object, and Effects of Trades' Unions, 'to give a definition of a Trades' Union, we should say, that it was a Society whose constitution is the worst of democracies, whose power is based on outrage, whose practice is tyranny, and whose end is self-destruction."
