JULY 16. 1866.

AN AGED POET.-Viscount Stratford de Redcliffe, now seventy-eight years old, has just published a volume entitled "Shadows of the Past, in Verse." The wonder is, not that he has written poetry, but that he has kept it back so long. His lordship, first cousin to the celebrated George Canning (Prime Minister of England in 1827), was long known in the political and diplomatic world as Sir Stratford Canning, and spent nearly half his life in Constantinople as British ambassador to Turkey. He is spoken of, in Mr. Kinglake's "Invasion of the Crimea," in terms of great eulogy as the Great Effendi, and directed British policy, as regards Turkey, during the Russian war, not returning to England until 1858.

ANNE OF AUSTRIA.-Miss Freer, author of "The Married Life of Anne of Austria," has announced the History of her Regency, during the youth of Louis the Fourteenth, from published and unpublished sources.

LOCAL HISTORY.-Maurice Lenigan, an Irish writer, has just given to the world, in one volume royal 8vo., "Limerick: its History and Antiquities, Ecclesiastical, Civil and Military, from the Earliest Ages; with copious Historical, Archæological, Topographical, Genealogical Notes and Illustrations; Maps, Plates, &c." It is creditable to the good sense of the Irish that, of late years, they have largely devoted themselves to the study of local history.

THE GAME OF CRICKET.-A reviewer in the "London Athenæum" derives the name of cricket from the Anglo-Saxon creag, a crooked club, and its origin from the Saxon sport of club-ball.

M. F. TUPPER.-A "blue and gold" edition of "Proverbial Philosophy" has appeared in London: of this work 200,000 copies have already been sold! In the whole seventeenth century there were only four editions of Shakspeare.

MENDELSSOHN, THE COMPOSER.-A complete edition of Mendelssohn's piano-forte works is now being published in London.

ANTIQUITY OF STEAM NAVIGATION.-Professor De Morgan, of London University, mentions a sixpenny IMPERIAL BIOGRAPHY.-There has just been pubtract, by Jonathan Hulls, printed in 1737, entitled: lished, at Leipzig, the first volume of "Memoirs of "A description and draught of a new-invented ma-Maximilian I., Emperor of Mexico." It contains & chine for carrying vessels or ships out of, or into any harbour, port, or river, against wind and tide, brief notice of his early life, and a particular acor in a calm. For which, His Majesty has granted count of a tour through Italy which he made in the letters patent, for the sole benefit of the author, for year 1851. the space of fourteen years." He says this tract is so rare that its existence was once doubted. It is the earliest description of steam-power applied to navigation. The plate shows a barge, with smoking funnel, and paddles at the stem, towing a ship of war. The engine, as described, is Newcomen's. It is not known whether Hulls actually constructed a boat. In all probability his tract suggested to Symington, as Symington did to Fulton.

66

MONTALEMBERT has just completed the third and fourth volumes of the Monks of the West." These volumes are entirely occupied with British ecclesiastical history. The third volume-after a brilliant sketch of the British character-is chiefly devoted to the conversion of Ireland by St. Patrick and the series of missionary enterprises which ensued. The fourth deals with the pure Anglo-Saxon period of English history.

AUTHORS' COPYRIGHT.—During the present session of the British Parliament, a bill was introduced by Lord Lyttelton to secure to authors of works of fiction the property in their dramatization. The bill was rejected, and the anomaly remains that, though a novel cannot be reprinted, its dialogue can be used on the stage. That is, it may not be reproduced in print, but it may in speech. The copyright law gives the author ownership of his own production for a certain number of years, but, it would appear, not that absolute ownership which would enable him to prevent vulgar or debasing dramatic adaptations of his works, and would give him an interest in their being put on the stage.

CESAR IN ENGLAND.-While the Emperor Napoleon enters into a full description of the invasion of Britain by Julius Cæsar, the Rev. Scott F. Surtees, an English clergyman, so much doubts the leading point of the subject that he has just published a pamphlet called "Julius Cæsar: Did he ever Cross the Channel?"

"MONK" LEWIS.-Little has been heard of the late M. G. Lewis, whose "Tales of Wonder" excited Walter Scott into versification, in the last decade of the last century; but he is not forgotten, we see, for a London publisher announces an illustrated octavo edition of his once famous (we had well nigh said infamous) prose romance, "The Monk."

SIR WALTER SCOTT.-It is announced that Mr. Francis Turner Palgrave is writing the life of Sir Walter Scott, which will be published this year. It is time that a new biography of the great novelist and poet. by a competent person, should appear. Mr. Lockhart's book, though charming in many respects, particularly in introducing a great deal of Scott's correspondence, still is rather an apology for Scott's life than a fair biography. Mr. Palgrave is an excellent art-critic, has moved in high circles (he was private secretary to Mr. Gladstone for some time), and has contributed largely to periodi

cal literature.

IRISH PERIODICAL LITERATURE.-Dr. Madden, biographer of Lady Blessington, and author of "The United Irishmen, their Lives and Times," announces a History of Irish Periodical Literature.

THE POEM OF "MY MOTHER."-It appears that Annie Gilbert, née Taylor, who wrote "My Mother" over sixty years ago, is still alive. In reply to the objection to the last stanza, she has sent the following new reading to the "Athenæum:"

"For could our Father in the skies
Look down with pleased or loving eyes,
If ever I could dare despise
My mother?"

MR. EDMUND YATES.-It is stated that, by Mr. C. Dickens' selection, the next serial story in "All the Year Round" will be written by Mr. Edmund Hodgson Yates, author of "Broken to Harness," and other novels, and "The Flaneur" in the “London Morning Star." Mr. Yates, who holds a high office in the General Post Office, London, is now thirty-five years old, and is son of Mr. Frederick Yates, the comedian, who was joint lessee of the Adelphi Theatre, London, with C. Mathews the elder, over twenty-seven years ago.

BRITISH MUSEUM.-Mr. J. Winter Jones has been appointed principal librarian of the British Museum, in the room of Mr. Panizzi, retired on a pension.

JULY 16, 1866.

BEETHOVEN.-Lady Wallace, who translated Mendelssohn's "Letters from the German," has done the same good service to Beethoven's Correspondence, from the Collections of Dr. Ludwig Nohl and Dr. von Köchel.

MISS ANNE MANNING.-This lady, born in 1812, who has won a considerable reputation by "Mary Powell," "The Ladies of Bever Hollow," and other works in which the antique form and manner of composition have been imitated, has written a new work on the Lincolnshire Tragedy, announced thus: 'Passages in the Life of the Faire Gospeller, Mispen of tress Anne Askew recorded by ye unworthie Nicholas Moldwarp, B. A., and now first set forth by the Author of Mary Powell.""

MISS THACKERAY.-"The Story of Elizabeth," which appeared in the "Cornhill Magazine" some time ago, was generally attributed to the eldest daughter of the late W. M. Thackeray. She has begun a new tale, illustrated, in the same periodical, and calls it "The Village on the Cliff."

SHAKSPEARE IN HINDOSTANEE.-It appears that the first volume of a Hindostanee translation of Shakspeare has been published at Bombay.

"PUNCH."-On Saturday, June 30th, was completed the Fiftieth half-yearly volume of "Punch, or the London Charivari."

COPYING.-In one of the London papers a person recently advertised "To authors and publishers. MSS. carefully and neatly copied and prepared for the press, at a charge of one penny per hundred

words."

WILLIAM HONE.-Mr. Hotten, the London publisher, announces "Hone's Scrap-Book," a supplementary volume to the works of the late William Hone; and a republication of "The Table-Talker: a Series of Essays on Inns, Authors, Pictures, Doctors, Holidays, Actors," &c., by Mr. H. T. Tuckerman, with introduction by Dr. Doran.

OBITUARY.

There is an announcement of the death of Dr. George Lillie CRAIK, who has been Professor of History and English Literature in Queen's College, Belfast, Ireland, since 1849. He was a native of Scotland, born in 1799. His first work of note, written at Lord Brougham's suggestion and published anonymously, was the "Pursuit of Knowledge under Difficulties.' This was followed by the “Pictorial History of England," and many other works, of which "A Compendious History of English Literature and of the English Language," republished by C. Scribner & Co., is the latest and most important. In his early manhood, when he first settled in London, he wrote a great deal for the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, and was much engaged on the "Penny Cyclopædia."

His

M. JOSEPH MÉRY, a distinguished poet, dramatist, and politician, died in Paris on the 18th of June, in his sixty-ninth year. A native of Marseilles, where he was educated, he threw himself into politics while yet in his eighteenth year, strongly opposing the Bourbons after the Second Restoration. satirical writings made him acquainted with the interior of a prison, after which, in 1824, he removed to Paris, where he joined the literary and political circle to which Armand Carrel, Victor Hugo, and Barthélémy belonged. He wrote in prose He joined and verse, indulging largely in satire. in the battles of the "Three Days of July," 1830, from which time he devoted himself to the Bonaparte cause. He wrote satires, plays, novels, travels-all with equal facility, and his conversation was as brilliant as his composition.

HISTORICAL.

BOOK NOTICES.

History of Julius Cæsar. Vol. II. The Wars in Gaul. pp. xvi., 659. New York: Harper & Bros. It is impossible to deny that this book has marked ability. It exhibits a research and logical ability, a mingling of the mathematical and practical, highly characteristic of the Napoleonic intellectual makeup. It is thorough and brilliant. As for the political end of which it is but the means, it is not necessary to speak here. The larger part of this volume is occupied with a reproductive treatment of the Commentaries of Cæsar. It ends with the crossing of the Rubicon, and the putting of certain political points in a very strong way, touching the great Cæsar and "the heir of his name;" "which things" (we quote Paul now, not "Napoleon") "are an allegory," for this Cæsar is Napoleon Bonaparte, and the heir to his name is Louis Napoleon.

Four Years in the Saddle. By Col. Harry Gilmor. pp. 291. New York: Harper & Bros. This book has something of the dash of the rebel centaur who records his own doings. His revelation of himself shows him to have had a good deal of fondness for adventure, an unreflecting courage, and no little addictedness to swearing, boasting, and brandy.

A Narrative of Andersonville, drawn from the Evidence elicited on the Trial of Henry Wirz, the Jailor. With the Argument of Col. N. P. Chipman, JudgeAdvocate. By Ambrose Spencer. pp. 272. New York: Harper & Bros.

A well-arranged résumé of the facts in the Andersonville horror, as established by legal evidence.

POLITICAL ECONOMY.

The Prevention of Panies; or, Suggestions for an Economical System of National Finance in Connection with the Construction of Public Works in any Country in the World, without either Subscriptions, Loans, Mortgages, Bonds, or Interest. By a Civil Engineer. Second edition, revised and corrected. pp. 58. London: H. Baily & Co.

TRAVELS.

Household Prayers for Four Weeks, with Additional Prayers for Special Occasions. To which is appended a Course of Scripture Readings in the Family for Every Day in the Year. By Rev. J. E. Riddle, M. A. Revised, with additions and slight alterations, by a Presbyter of the Protestant Episcopal Church. pp. 179. New York: James Pott. book is entitled to a very honorable place in the Both as regards arrangement and matter this almost infinite variety of works of its general class. Studies upon the Harmony of the Three Dispensations of Grace. By a Layman of the Diocese of Maryland. pp. 740. New York: James Pott. This little book is the "brief of an aged lawyer, upon an issue in the High Chancery of Heaven." It is a very clear and sensible presentation of religious truth from a churchly point of view. The Young Lady of Pleasure. pp. 316. New York: American Tract Society.

This book is singularly unfortunate in its title, It is a very sensible book on amusements suitable sufficiently so to be injured in its circulation by it. and unsuitable for young ladies, and argues from a very decided, yet not extravagant, "evangelical" position.

[blocks in formation]

Baptism: the Doctrine set forth in Holy Scripture, and taught in the Evangelical Lutheran Church. By Charles P. Krauth, D. D., Norton Professor of Theology in the Theological Seminary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church at Philadelphia. pp. 73. Philadelphia: T. L. Schrack, No. 42 N. Ninth Street.

A presentation, with ample citations, of the judgment of Luther, and of the Lutheran Church, in regard to the mode and benefits of baptism.

The Albert Nyanza. Great Basin of the Nile, and Explorations of the Nile Sources. By Samuel White Baker. With Maps, Illustrations, and Portraits. pp. xxvi., 516. London: Macmillan & Co. Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott & Co. This handsome and well-illustrated volume tells the story of the discovery of the great lake from which the Nile flows, to which Mr. Baker has given the name of "Albert," the late Prince Consort. The narrative is one of great interest, and free from all Running the Gauntlet. A Novel. By Edmund Yates, air of exaggeration.

RELIGIOUS.

The Pilgrim's Progress from this World to that which is to Come. Delivered under the Similitude of a Dream. Wherein is Described the Manner of his Setting Out, his Dangerous Journey, and his Arrival at the Desired Country. By John Bunyan. pp. 612. Philadelphia: American Sunday School Union.

This edition is in large print, with Scripture parallels and side-notes, pictorial illustrations, and an index, all making it a very desirable form of the Christian classic.
