Clearness and elegance of style are the first requisites in the case of any literary production intended to interest rather than directly to instruct the reader. So far Mr. Grant Allen is eminently successful. We are quite willing to accept his propositions as means for stimulating further research. As such they have their value. But when they are put before us didactically and dogmatically, we venture to express our dissent. Darwin piled fact upon fact. He verified so far as was possible each observation as he went; he carefully avoided dogmatism. Bentham, treating on the very subject discussed by our author, spent laborious years in the careful scrutiny of the composites, and his conclusions are somewhat more modest than those of Mr. Grant Allen." - Atheneum, Nov. 10.

"The opinion is strenuously maintained that the notion of universal harmony, attainable perfection, and unmixed happiness is Utopian and illusory. The strength of the book is in the abundance of illustrative matter which he has brought to the support of his thesis, and in the large view of the world which he has been obliged to take in order to do it. The author favors meliorism, and his book has a healthy tone, in so far as it presents the dual position in which the active forces of life stand toward one another. The argument is instructive rather than conclusive, and is supported by liberal extracts from nearly all the modern writers on science, society, and religion." Boston advertiser,

"We follow through the times of Henry v. who started from there to invade France; of Elizabeth, who visited it soon after the Armada; and of Charles I., in whose time the Mayflower sailed for Massachusetts. The corporate history is traced through a series of charters from various sovereigns down to that ever memorable period in the municipal history of England, when Charles II. sought by a 'quo warranto' to deprive towns of free action. If these transactions are politically interesting, there are others equally so from a social point of view."

In a notice of the unveiling of the Doré statue the Saturday review says, "He has produced 'La Tour de Nesle' a romantic play which M. Zola himself pronounces the ideal of the genre,' and in Antony' an achievement in drawing-room tragedy which is certainly the first, and which in the opinion of a critic so competent and so keen as M. Dumas fils, is probably the strongest thing of its kind in modern literature. Of this latter play, as it seems to us, it is difficult to speak with too much admiration. is in its essentials a play in the same sense as 'Othello' and the Trachiniæ are plays in theirs. It is the be ginning not only of Les lionnes pauvres,' but of 'Thérèse Raquin' as well; just as La Tour de Nesle' is the beginning of Patrie' and 'La haine.' Ewald, G: H: A: von.

"M. Guerrier se propose de prouver: 1, que la vie de Mme. Guyon a été irréprochable; 2, que la doctrine mystique du quietisme mérite une certaine indulgence; 3, que Fénelon eut la beau rôle dans la controverse qui s'éleva, à ce sujet, entre Bossuet et lui; 4, que Bossuet, au contraire,s'est montré cruel à l'égard de Mme Guyon, et qu'il a employé tous les petits et grands moyens contre son contradicteur. Mme. Guyon reste pour nous une névropathe. Avec M. Guerrier, nous suivons à pas pas les progrès de cet état morbide. Son livre permet au lecteur de tirer, en toute connaissance de

cause, une conclusion, qui n'est peut-être pas la sienne, mais qu'on ne saurait établir sur des documents plus certains. La lecture attentive de son livre prouvera combien la raison et le bon sens étaient du côté de Bossuet (cf. chap. XVII.), combien les réfutations, les distinctions, et les explications de Fénelon ne peuvent prévaloir contre la logique de son adversaire, et c'est un grand éloge que l'on peut faire de l'auteur que cette sincérité avec laquelle il expose les arguments de Bossuet, qu'il condamne cependant.

His pages are full of beauty, and alive with nature, the sea, the stars, and London; his finest description is that of the city and river life. The book is a contribution to the ideal in life. It is composed of day-dreams dreams which haunt an earnest mind as night follows day; and its real value lies in its plea for walking, and keeping our eyes and ears open to nature, for there is really little heart' or human interest in it." — James Powers in the Academy, Nov. 3.

Rosmini-Serbati, A., il abate. Of the five wounds of the Holy Church; ed., with ntrod., by H. P. Liddon.

"The first wound is the lack of sympathy in public worship between the clergy and the flocks which they serve. The second is the want of education in the elergy. The third is the spirit of division which separates the bishops from each other, and from the clergy and the people. The fourth and the fifth have to do with the appointment of the bishops by the secular power, and may be taken to include what is commonly known as Erastianism. Vigorous champion as he was of Papal supremacy, and of the temporal domain, he fell under the suspicion of the ecclesiastical authori ties of his own church. Two of his works, The constitution according to social justice,' and 'The five wounds of the church' were condemned by the Congregation of the Index.' This ban was afterwards taken off."- Spectator, Dec. 8.

In collections of learned evidence from every source, Dr. Schliemann is also unwearied. His discoveries are unequalled in interest by any that archæology has ever made. Dr. Schliemann has been accused of obscuring his facts by his theories, and the public has been warned that a distinction should be made between the theories he has put for ward, and the facts he has discovered.

"Of great value and interest. The amount of information about the inner life of the Indians will seem marvellous to those, who, having some experience of them, would define their conversation as silence broken


only by monosylables and grunts; and who know how dificult it is to become intimate with them. Partly through the half-bloods, more through his own tact, probably, Mr. Im Thurn was able to get within the exclusiveness that comes of timidity, and therefore, can tell us more than most travellers. The chapter on animism that is to say, the assumption of the Indian that there is a soul in everything. from the bird overhead to the wierdly shaped stone by some waterfall — is very entertaining and suggestive.

"Mr. Crawford's new book is as clever in its way as its precursors, and, indeed, displays a faculty of which they gave but faint indications, if any— that of writing aphorisms, almost epigrams, with a cynical flavour perceptible, though not dominating them. His theme, how. ever, is not a pleasant one. There is no attempt to minimise the ugliness of the whole business, or to rep resent it as likely to have yielded lasting happiness had the Nemesis not come as it did.
