HESTER, and Other New England Stories. By PERRY'S SAINTS, or the Fighting Parson's MARGARET Sidney. 12mo, cloth, $1.25.

True to the life they represent, these stories are thoroughly imbued with the New England spirit. The dialect is choicely preserved, with the best flavor of village speech, like a fine aroma, and never allowed to be lost. The character sketches are bright, natural, and faithful delineations of New England life, customs

and manners.

Regiment. A Story of the War for the Union. By COL. JAMES M. NICHOLS. 12mo, cloth, illustrated, $1.25. Is the history of one of the most remarkable men and regiments that served during the late war. The hero, Rev. J. H. Perry, (who had been graduated from West Point), on receipt of news of the bombardment of Fort Sumter, said: "I was educated by the Government; it now needs my services. I shall resign my

A NEW DEPARTURE FOR GIRLS. By MARGARET ministry and again take up my sword." The story is told with SIDNEY. 12mo, cloth, 75 cents

This is a bright story of two young girls whose father, dying, left an encumbered estate and two daughters without means of support. The "new departure" is the novel and sensible way these young girls took to earn their living without resorting to teaching, music, painting, Kensingtor work, nor going into a store, office, nor out to service. The story, which is full of interest and incident, moves graphically and forcefully to its conclusion, conveying a powerful lesson to any reader whether in affluent or needy circumstances. The volume is richly illustrated. THE FULL STATURE OF A MAN.

WARTH. THE ROUND WORLD SERIES. 12mo, cloth, $1.25. This initial volume of a new series is "transfixed with a purpose." The author handles the questions of Labor, Church-going and Socialism with rare skill and without obtrusive discussion. Though his views are strong and sharply expressed there is no detraction from the reader's eager interest in the story itself, which is bright, original in plot, and full of incident.

The name of this charming book is taken from the lines: "Like beggar princes of the wood

In silver rags the birches stood."

It describes a vacation visit of Pet Sibley to the Maine home of her uncle Will Percival, whose stories, added to Pet's adventures and mishaps, while boating, roaming over the farm, climbing hay mows and so on, give rare variety of incident to the volume. It is handsomely illustrated.

Dr. A. P. Peabody of Harvard writes of the author of this: "He has a resource in his power of imaginative fiction which could win him a large place in the best literature of the day. I am charmed with the vivid portraiture, the truth-like narrative, the strokes of wit, humor and merited satire, the breadth and loftiness of Christian faith, charity and aspiration." LAST EVENING WITH ALLSTON, and Other Papers. By ELIZABETH P. PEABODY. 12mo, cloth, $1.50.

She refers to his oft-stated belief that for the true painter, 'drawing is the first thing; drawing is the second thing; drawing is the third thing." The first of the other papers was written in 1830. They are on varied subjects which have been of paramount in terest during the literary life of the venerable author. "A Vision" was contributed to the Pioneer in 1843, "Brook Farm Interpretation of Christ's Idea of Society," from the Dial, and the "Atheism of Yesterday," from the Christian Examiner. The latest paper is a "Plea for Fræbel's Kindergarten."

ETCHINGS FROM

TWO LANDS. BY CLARA ARTHUR MASON. 16mo, cloth, illustrated, $1.00. Some readers who know the author of this book by her "Cherryblooms of Yeddo " may be surprised to learn that she lived in Japan as a missionary.

She observed keenly and arrayed what she saw in attractive form, so that her book is full of interesting information on a large variety of subjects connected with Japanese life, and will serve to correct many mistaken ideas about Japan and its people.

HOUGHTON, MIFFLIN & Co. will publish next week Mr. Bishop's excellent story, "The Golden Justice," which appeared in the Atlantic Monthly last year; a volume entitled "The Emancipation of Massachusetts," by Brooks Adams, a member of the famous Adams family, who takes a quite different view of the character and aims and methods of the early settlers of Massachusetts from that taken by most historians and essayists, and whose book is likely to cause no little commotion; a little volume entitled "The Pioneer Quakers," by R. P. Hallowell, who published a few years since "The Quaker Invasion of Massachusetts," and who in his new book gives an account of the origin of Quakerism, and shows by the history of Quakers that they have been always intelligently devoted to religious freedom, and not merely to some religious whim, as would be inferred from the way in which they are treated by some authors. A new edition of "The Quaker Invasion of Massachusetts," with some revisions, will appear at the same time. Two other books which have been on sale in some of the principal cities, but which have not been offered to the trade generally, are "The Heart of the Weed," a volume of poems with no author's name, but possessing much positive merit; and "Shakespeare's Insomnia, and the Causes Thereof," an essay read by Franklin H. Head before a literary society of Chicago, accounting in a humorous and quite imaginative way for some passages in Shakespeare's plays, which indicate that he may have been a victim of insomnia.

JOURNALISTIC NOTES.

THE February Atlantic will be a notable number, since it will contain a poem five or six pages long, by Mr. Lowell, satirizing in his inimitable way and deprecating the ascendency of materialistic and scientific theories, which seem to him to militate against religion and the best interests of society.

GINN & Co. announce that owing to the failure of a lithographer to produce one of the very elaborate plates of the Journal of Morphology (edited by C. O. Whitman) which he had undertaken, the first number cannot be issued until March. Most of the plates were sent in the first instance to Germany and placed in most competent hands.

THE January number of the English Illustrated Magazine contains the first of a series of illustrated papers by the author of "John Halifax, Gentleman,' descriptive of a recent visit to Ireland. Among the other articles are “The Daughters of George III.," by M. W. Outram Tristram, with illustrations; and a series of illustrations to Fouqué's "Undine," by Mr. Heyward Sumner, with an article on the romance by Miss Julia Cartwright.

The author seems to be a fatalist; the characters are all grouped to illustrate a fixed belief in the part destiny plays in the lives of humanity. The heroine is a pretty little German peasant, who acquires some knowledge and strange ideas from books selected at random; these ideas are fostered by an English artist, and then fate again interposes by sending two English travellers who play a strange part in the life of the little Lieschen, who seems to have no power to combat her troubles, when the fitful fate behaves more kindly and sends Lieschen back to Passau, the quiet home of her youth, and leaves her at the beginning of her second romance.

Artist life in Paris is the theme and the characters are mainly Bohemian painters, journalists, and literary men, together with the women who have joined their fortunes

to theirs. Claude Lantier, son of Gervaise and Lantier of "L'Assommoir" and brother of "Nana," is the

hero. He and Christine pervade the book. Claude is a

wild enthusiast with an ill-balanced mind. He has decided ability as an artist, but his monomania for founding a new realístic school of painting and producing a masterwork prevents him from attaining success. Biting poverty is finally his lot, and Christine devotedly shares his for whom he forsakes her and to whom he gives his pasmisery, tortured by jealousy of the women on his canvas, sionate adoration. Under the name of Sandoz, Zola personally figures largely in the novel, and the statements made with reference to his life, literary aims, and methods of labor are said to be autobiographical.
