But the book which he now gives forth is far from meeting the expectations which the title naturally arouses. Only a very small portion of it can by the most strained construction be in. cluded under the designation of Souvenirs.' Much of it is devoted to the two gigantic schemes to which M. de Lesseps has given the last thirty years of his life, and may be regarded as a huge pamphlet designed to influence public opinion in favor of the Panama Canal.

Mr. Marchant, though he is continually be. ing brought to grief by his inability to distinguish be. tween the cause and the effect - between good beer and bad literature - has collected a vast amount of odd, amusing, suggestive, and interesting matter.

The Oglander memoirs' was a local worthy who, born in the Isle of Wight during the reign of Elizabeth, died there under the Cromwellian Protectorate. He may be de. fined as an active county magistrate, with a taste for genealogy and antiquities, but taking a much more vivid interest in his contemporaries on the island; and the attractiveness of his realistic notes lies in the fact that they are alive with personalities from end to end. The papers do not consist of a consecutive story, carried on from year to year; they are not even a diary of events. The book js in fact, a sort of graphic in. ventory of persons, and places, and customs in the Isle of Wight when the first set of Stuarts were kings, and of course, Sir John all through unconsciously

paints himself. It is indeed, one of the most amusing and instructive among the revivals of the past.” – Spectator,

But from a student's point of view the most valuable chapter in the work is that which contains a sketch of Japanese grammar. It is a clear and concine sketch of the grammar as it really is.

It is eminently a volume which is fitted for the hands of those who are interested in the study of the folk-lore and language of Japan." - Saturday

“ The author of Natural law in the spiritual world' may be daring, and at times even slightly paradoxical, but never either dull or commonplace. Instead of the obsolete . three or four volumes and a map,' he here gives us "three or four maps and a volume,'and thus with bold originality takes takes a new departure in the lit. erature of travel, The volume is very small, with plenty of lending,' and blank spaces, the maps are not

“ His sketches of scenery and descriptions of persopal incidents and native customs are vivid and entertaining; his scientific and political chapters are instructive and convincing; but his book nowhere rises above the dignity or value of a cleverly written magazine article.

87. 2 v. “Very clever sketches of the principal figures in our late civil war. As a rule, they are remarkable for just. ness of appreciation and facility of expression. That the men are viewed from the standpoint of a Frenchman, adds to the curiosity and interest with which we turn over the pages. In the first part of his book, M. Grasset has sketched the course of events; here we have his characterization of the actors. Many of his pictures are

exceedingly good." - Nation, Mar. 15. Harrison, W.J. A history of photography; with

an appendix by Dr. Maddox on the discov.

ery of the gelatino-bromide process. Harte, F. B. The Argonauts of North Liberty.

One of the author's best stories, and to my mind, is none the worse for the fact that there is so complete a change of characters and scene." - W: Sharp in the

Marchand. “Les quatre récits contenus dans ce volume une saveur étrange. Ils nous transportent dans des pays très différens. Ils se ressemblent néanmoins par lė sentiment délicat qui le porte plutôt vers l'observation des misères rares et cachées. Une grande sobriété de couleurs, mais un accent pénétrant de sympathie et de

pitié.” Reo. d. D. Mondes, Mar. 1. Harvard College Observatory. Henry Draper

“ Although coming from an English source, this novel is so German in thought and setting that it might be a translation. It opens in a small German village during the Franco.l’russian war, and though we get scarcely & scene from the campaign, the story is colored by its

events." Irving, J: T. Indian sketches, taken during a U.
