"Le récit est simple, facile, familier même au besoin; l'anecdote l'agrémente souvent d'un trait heureux, et péuhmoins la personalité de celui qui parle ne se révèle dans cet entretien, libre de toute contrainte, que par sa réserve et sa modestie. Le til qui relie ces souvenirs est bien biographique mais l'attention est toute réclamée par la chose publique et par les hommes qui en tiennent en leurs mains les destinées. Nous avons donc là moins une biographie ou étude historique suivie qu'une sorte de commentaire destiné à expliquer au moyen de renseignements per. Bonnels et parfois curieux des événements jugés irop notoires pour les relater de nouveau.

Plutôt que de piller ces mémoires, nous y reu voyons le lecteur, qui nous saura gré de ne pas les lui défiorer. Il nous suffit de l'avoir alléché, et, le livre une fois entre ses mains, il

ne le quittera plus.” Bibl. univ., mars. Bates, A. The poet and his self. Bax, E. B. Outlooks from the new standpoint.

“ It is divided into three parts, the first containing two historical papers, very readable, and probably the best part of the book; the second containing six papers more or less socialistic, in all of which strong bius is more visible than critical insight; and the third contain. ing three philosophical notes, none of them important, but reminding the reader of the time when Mr. Bax was an authority on such subjects." — Academy, Aug.

Boutmy cease to be trite. Placed in a new light, aiid looked at from a new angle of vision, we see points of interest and importance we had ignored before. Combined with a deep and liberal knowledge of our laws and institutions, he possesses in a high degree that faculty of clear and logical disquisition which be. longs in some measure to all Frenchmen.

Nor could they have worked under a betier editor, for apart from the value which his knowledge of history of the Uni. versity at large adds to these papers, he has set forth the main characteristics of the history of each College in a short preface, which forms the best possible intro. duction to the study of the ensuing chapters." — Sul.

But he is naturally disposed in dealing with a text so manifestly vitiated to dispose of any incidental difficulty by simply striking out the line – a procedure which, convenient as it may seem, is not we think, jus. titied in every case where it has been adopted. Now and again we find a tendency to reject lines because they are not strong, not apposite, or not what Euripi. des would or ought to have written. That is a danger. ous criterion to adopt, and would play bavoc with far sounder texts than the one to which Mr. England has devoted much labour, and for which he has performed

no inconsiderable services." -- Sat. rev., Oct. 3. Faguet, E.

He has shown thorough acquaintance with the minutiæ of Exchequer practiee, and the strangely persistent survi. val of jis almost mystic rites, and we are glad that by collecting his work on this subject he has made it more accessible to students. In a short preface, Sir John Lubbock expresses his belief that, if the succeeding volumes are as well done as that by Mr. Hall, the series will be both valuable and interesting.' Athenæum,

Not that the Citizen Mancini Xivernais as he was called in the rather degrading days when he was reconciled to the Republic, was a very important person but that he was a very characteristic one."

Sat. red., Aug. 1. Hissey, J. J: Across England in a dog.cart; from

London to St. David's and back. " The author, it is needless to say, is not a Borrow or a llawthorne, and has none of the consummate art by which a charm can be imparted to the most familiar objects. His style is diffuse, and his remarks are frequently too obvious to be edifying: but his large sense of enjoyment leaves a pleasant impression, and we close the volume with too friendly a feeling for the writer to enlarge u pon defects that are comparatively of

slight importance." Atheneum, Dec. 5. Hodder, E. George Fife Angas, father and founder

of south Australia. " ThisPuritan of the Puritans' bronght up in the narrowest principles in the straitest sect of his religion, took William Penn for his exemplar; his heart, how cver, was larger than his creed, and in his old age he modified the austerity of his youth. None can doubt his sincerity, or the deep. piety which pervades every line of his diary. His zeal for religious liberty led him to organize a large emigration of German Luthe. rans, who no lately as tifty years ago, suffered for con. science' sake at the hands of the Prussian government."

Athenaeum, Nov. 7. Hughes, W: R.

A week's tramp in Dickens-land, with personal reminiscences. "Mr. Hughes's book is in its own way a museum of interesting curios which will give pleasure to the de. parted novelist's friends and admirers. It would inke us long to speculate why one favoured author has been selected for this odd form of compliment; for there is no such eagerness to track the steps of either Scott or Thackeray. But it may be said that no author has ever received so exquisitely flattering a tribute to his power of creation as the standing advertisement in the Bradehaw and other guides ' inserted by the proprietors of the inns at Rochester and Ipswich – to wit, Mr. Pickwick stayed at this hotel;' and again, 'I! was at this hotel that Mr. Pickwick met the single lady,'

Mr. Hughes himself is so mueh under the delusive spell that he recalls with delight having occupied Mr. Winkle's bedroom at the Bull!' • Wonderful Dick. ens'! Mr. Hughes supplies some interesting details as to the incomplete Edwin Drood.'" - Sat. rep.,, Nov. 21.

Not only was he more minutely familiar with France and Frenchmen than it is often given to Englishinen to be, but he had enjoyed the exceptional advantage of a close friendship with the subject of the book - a friendship which had given him opportunities for studying him at all times.

For energy, force, superabundance, originality, sparkle, and gloomy grandeur, I know only one equal to him,' says M. Taine, and he instances Tintoretto. But he adds, - 'All that Doré wanted was to have been born in a good atmosphere, and to have drawn for twelve to twenty years in a thorough studio or acad. emy. ... For this reason his more ambitious works will always excite wonder rather than admiration. But as a designer of unexampled invention, facility, and re. source - as the illustrator of Dante and Milton and Ariosto, of Rabelais and Cervantes and La Fontaine and Perrault, bis originality can never be questioned, nor his distinction be a maiter of dispute.".

The interest is kept up from the first to the last page, the charaeters are sufficient and happily contrasted, and there is by a long way more real knowledge of hu. man nature than in the elaborate fretwork of modern. ity which it is the fashion to admire. What matter that there is much fighting, much love-making, and not a little sheer eating and drinking? To fight heartily and to love heartily, not neglecting at proper (and frequent) times the equal banquet, how good it is! For these things are among temporal things in a way eternal, and the other things among temporal things are so plus.

Pitcairn, W. D. Two years among the savages of

New Guinea, (1887-89] ; notes on North

Queensland. " The most readable book on New Guinea which has yet appeared. He has not gone in much for internal exploration, although he occasionally quotes the parra. tives of other explorers with due acknowledgment. But he can tell much of the doings of the adventurous traders who have settled on these unhealthy and inhos. pitable coasts among warlike savages who are seldom to be trusted. The story of his own cruises and experiences in seas that are swept by storms and cyclones, and among archipelagoes, and in channels as yet un. mapped, where submerged reefs of coral make the in. tricate navigation singularly treacherous, is sufficiently

exciting.' Sat. rev., Sept. 12. Pitray, O., vicomtesse de. L'usine et la château. Pizzamiglio, L: Distributing co-operative socie

J. Snell). " Shows much erudition in a small space - more erudition, perhaps, than originality. It is acutely writ. ten, and not discursive. The description of the progress of the movement in Milan alone shows us that the system has now thoroughly taken root in the Italian kingdom, for Milan is the centre whence the movement will spread, and is indeed, already spreading through. out the country, as in England the initiative was in the city of Manchester. Also, the author gives a good account of the foundation of the movement at Rochdale, and indeed, in this the first paragraph of the book he places the logic on which the system is based in a nut. shell. A point in which the book is useful is in that it discusses the movement generally and internationally, for like all great morements which spring from the working classes, it is of its nature cosmopolitan."

His footsteps were over a path almost untravelled by white men, and only rarely by Chinese. His experi. ences were varied, sometimes exhilarating, often danger. ous and full of fascination. This element of personal adventures lends a powerful charm to his singularly straightforward narrative. Besides being a trust. worthy exploitation of an unknown land, and a work of permanent value, this book furnishes the materials for a week of pleasant fireside travels under the winter even.

“Of all the minor poets of the Victorian reign, Wil. liam Caldwell Roscoe is one of the most fascinating. There is a retinement about his genius that is not due to his fastidiousness or delicacy of taste, but rather to the vividness of his spiritual discrimination. His gen. ius was not fertile, but it was singularly true and dis. cerning, and, what is more, it was a genius that worked in the finest material, that translated its conceptions into the most perfect and expressive forms of human

* The plot of the story - and the plot is everything - is daringly American, exciting, and in parts highly entertaining It is admirably developed, and the resources of Helene, the Nihilist, are inexhaustible. The skill with wbich she sustains the part of a piquant Americaine is so great as to be incredible; but whoever wishes to enjoy a well-worked-out sensational story will not object to, but rather enjoy such skill." – Spec. tutor, Sept. 12.

"Dr. Schuchhardt has written a book in which he tries
to sum up the results of Dr. Schliemann's discoveries,
as far as they can be understood. Mrs. Sellers has
added useful references to classical authors, and to ob-
jects in the British Museum, and an account of those re-
markable works of early art, the Vapheio golden cups.
The volume is also enriched by an introduction, which
we only wish were longer, from the pen of Walter Leal,
probably the English scholar most decply read in Ho-
meric archæology. Dr. Schuchhardt writes very
clearly, learnedly, and in good temper, and Mrs. Sel.

valuable in English than in German." - Saturday ret.,

Abused by violent partisans, attacked by Southerners during his own lifetime, it is even yet only barely possible to estimate fairly the work of President Lincoln, but Mr. Schurz has made an attempt to form such an estimate, and with his conclusions most of us will agree."

“ Gives a history of the factory system, and most of the legislation bearing on it from about the year 1719 to the present date. ... The author has been for many years Her Majesty's Inspector of factories, and has evi. dently gained a very large experience in that capacity; but he is also a laborious student, and appears to have collected all the legislation and all the information of the last hundred years or more, thus producing a work which must be of the deepest interest to all practical politicians, and to persons of every class who are con. cerned in dealing with the present interests and future prospects of the population of this and other countries."
