“Mr. Hart had four episodes to treat of: The cam. paign in the valley of the Ohio, the expulsion of the Acadians, the capture of Louisbourg, and the battle of the Plains of Abraham, which led to the final downfall of New France. These subjects were handled with breadth of appreciation, and depth of research. The question of the Acadians is one of special difficulty, owing to the coloured accounts of British and French writers, but the Lecturer strongly leaned to the view that their dispersion was a matter of absolute military necessity, in accordance with the politicaljurisprudence of the times, and that it is hard to see what other course could have been pursued.” — Nontréal guzelle, Mar. 25, 1857.

It is usual to issue about 15,000 of these cir. culars.' But the demand for this was so great, that three years ago 60,000 had been sent to special appli. cants for it. The author enlarged it to a book. Orlate years people have begun to lay aside the old supersti. tion as to a gift' or 'talent' for art being needed to learn to draw, so Mr. Leland says, and it is now admitted we all have a faculty for it which can be dereloped. Going still further. Mr. Leland holds that the faculty itself can be created or evolved.

" Thomas Smith Dabney, the memorials of whose life are presented, was born in 1798. He died in 1885. The life of a Southern planter that covered so long a period gives a chance for as interesting a picture of old Southern manners as the writer of any recent book has hid. Mrs. Smedes tells the story of his life well enough to make a good sketch of the man, who was worth knowwg on his own accouut, and a good picture of Southern civilization in the time of slavery. All who are interested to gila knowledge of what that civilization was, will find this one of the most helpful of recent books, and for this reason it has even an histori

cal value." Spielhagen, F: Was will das werden? 1887. 3 v. Stapfer, P. Shakespeare et l'antiquité; Shake
