"Its writer is a young Irish lady, and the book is 'racy of the soil.' She has studied men, women, and things, with quick intelligence, keen appreciation, and the ready sympathy that gives the last vivifying touch to the characters portrayed and the scenes depicted. There is a heroine who is as individual, and as independent as any of Mr. Henry James's analytical, young females, but worth a score of them by reason of her wholesomeness, her godliness, and her contentment; a hero who is a good fellow, full of talent, and honest of purpose; and a villain quite manifestly concocted, and not a bit like a real, live villain."- Spectator, Nov. 3, 1883.

"The fault charged upon Austin's great work on ju risprudence is, according to Professor Clark, that Austin considers political societies only at an advanced period of their existence, and denies the name of law to that which has been keeping them together for ages, because it does not square with his own logical conception." The fault charged upon the historical school of jurists, is that they live in the past, dwell exclusively upon that which was, and lose sight of that which ought to be.' Professor Clark's object appears to be to connect the labours of Austin with the labours of the historical jurists."- Athenæum, Dec. 27.

Mr. Cross has aimed at making them a self-revelation of his wife's career and character, and he has been for the most part successful in the difficult undertaking. The book is remarkably satisfactory in tone, and is especially noteworthy for a rigid abstinence from anything that could pander to mere curiosity. The novel method of extracts arranged in order of time tells the tale spontaneously, and George Eliot the woman stands forth revealed to the world in all her strength and refinement of her intellect, in all the clinging trustfulness of her moral and emotional nature." - Athenaeum, Jan. 31.

"What one misses most in these letters is instinct, intensity, vividness. They are the letters of slow, and somewhat too sweet reflectiveness, out of which the vi vacity of strong personal impression seems to have vanished altogether. Taken as a whole this 'Life' leaves us with the impression of a lofty mind of singularly feeble instincts, and singularly amiable sentiments, - somewhat slow and elaborate in its movements, and almost artificially judicial in its attitude towards every new intellectual claim. A sceptical Milton, without his epic genius, though with a very real dramatic gift of her own, we yet never see that gift in anything she writes in her own name."- Spectator, Jan. 31.

"This short treatise has a value in inverse proportion to its length. ... The discussion last summer at Concord concerning immortality gave Mr. Fiske an oppor tunity for claiming that Darwinism instead of degrading, elevates man, that theism and the belief in immortality rest on more solid foundations than ever. He affirms that the Darwinian theory, properly understood, replaces as much theology as it destroys. Mr. Fiske's reasons for belief in immortality are not new. But his conclusions are striking, because reached by a compara. tively untrodden path. ... If criticism were to be made it would be directed towards the view taken of the ac. tual processes of evolution. It may be questioned also whether geology and biology have yet come to so explicit an agreement concerning time as Mr. Fiske's quiet assumption would imply. But these criticisms do not touch the rea! purpose of the book. Its value will be found in the reassurances it may bring to those who cannot deny many of the conclusions of evolution, yet who fear its effects on religious beliefs, and also in the evidence it affords, that the spiritual in man is su preme, and must be recognized from whatever side the approach may be taken."

Recueil des instructions données aux ambassadeurs et ministres de France, depuis les traités de Westphalie jusqu'à la Révolution Française; avec une introd. et des notes par A. Sorel. The eighteenth century was the palmy age of diplo macy; it was the century in which the inclinations of peoples were held of no account, and all alliances were made in accordance with the caprice or state-craft of Continental monarchs. The history of the diplomacy of the eighteenth century is, therefore, of the greatest importance, and it is the point on which least light has been thrown. For others than students of diplo matic history the chief interest of the volume will be found in its portraits of the Austrian statesmen and the foreign ambassadors at Vienna, which are sketched for the instruction of the departing envoys. The genius of the French for this style of portraiture is admirably exemplified in these short incisive sketches.

The author confines himself chiefly to an elaborate discussion of The light of Asia,' a work that in his opinion has done serious harm in two ways: by giving many people a false ideal of what is true poetry; and what is far worse by representing Buddha and his teachings in a wholly false and meretricious light. Mr. Wilkinson in fact brings against Mr. Arnold a very formidable series of charges.
