"There is plenty of readable matter in these volumes. They tell pleasantly, and for the most part modestly, so much as the authors care that the public should hear about them, and they put on record a good deal that is worth knowing about stage history, and its connexions during the past quarter of a century. Diligent historians, it is true, would still have to seek elsewhere for much of the information needed to make their chronicles complete and trustworthy. But such reticences

and omisions as are inevitable in books like the one before us are hardly to be complained of by general readers. In a player's picture of himself what matters it if he maintains his histrionic character ?" næum, Apr. 21.

"The prototype of The city of dream' is the 'Pilgrim's progress,' but there is one striking distinction. In Bunyan's poetic allegory everything is clearly defined; the contrasts are sharp, and there are no grada tions, no illusions of mental mirage, and the conclusion is absolutely definite and decisive. In Mr. Buchanan's epic not only are the personifications occasionally very vague, but the conclusion can leave little definite impression on anyone's mind save the somewhat illogical one that since God is indiscoverable in earth or heaven, in any human or natural temple, in the mysteries of nature or in the heart of man, he is probably to be found on the farther shore of the celestial ocean of Death.

Exactly what one of a series of short biographies of English statesmen ought to be; it gives the reader a clear idea of the place that Wolsey holds in the history of our national development, and presents a compre hensive and well-proportioned picture of a subject that to an untaught eye seems at first to have little unity. Wolsey's claim to be recognized as the 'greatest politi cal genius whom England has ever produced' rests not on any immediate or definite achievement, but on the fact that he drew out the latent power of his country, and taught Englishmen their own strength." - Sat. rev., Apr. 28.

"Perhaps the greatest difficulty which the biogra pher of Wolsey has to contend with is the difficulty of impressing the modern reader with the fact of the limitation of his powers. Accustomed as we are to think of

a Prime Minister nowadays as one who can absolutely dictate a policy to his sovereign, we cannot readily understand how a statesman of such extraordinary sagac. ity as Wolsey could have been hampered in all his ef forts by the necessity of obtaining the cordial and dis. tinct acquiescence of his sovereign in everything that he ventured to undertake as a condition of his retaining power at all. Mr. Creighton accordingly pleads, with very good reason, that statesmen are to be judged not merely by their works, but by their aims, and that Wolsey in particular was greater far than his achievements." -Athenæum, Apr. 28.

On the other hand, he sees half-truths, and is liable to the temptation to indulge in fanciful interpretations. Mr. Daryl talks very suggestively, very amusingly, very cleverly indeed. His descriptions are striking; his banter is light and good humoured; his sarcasm very delicate and never brutal. Yet we confess that we neither understand clearly his attitude towards the various elements of Irish society, nor can we frame from his remarks any clear answer to the question, What is Ireland's disease?"

"Mr. Rogers came across a weekly register by John Houghton recording the prices of the Bank stock from 1694 to 1703. As there were some difficulties in this document, Mr. Rogers made enquiries at the Bank, and found to his surprise that the authorities of Threadneedle Street possessed no information about the price of their stock before 1705. On discovering this strange defect in the documentary records of the Bank, Mr. Rogers determined upon reprinting for the enlightenment of the world at large the table of prices and rates which this assiduous apothecary had compiled, and upon composing a narrative to show the reason for the fluctuations in the weekly prices of the stock." - Acad. emy, May 5.

"This book, in language as well chosen as it is judicial and temperate, sets before its readers a history not only of the infancy of that great institution, but of the stormy and critical years of the Revolution, with the fortunes of which it is so closely bound up, and which it did so much to support. Much trustworthy information agreeably given. The five tables by Houghton, Justin, and others, which are appended to the book show the fluctuations of Bank stock, of the Amsterdam Exchanges, of the price of guineas, and of the discount on bank notes."— Saturday review, Apr.

"Sir Richard Temple spent a few weeks in Palestine in the early part of 1883. He occupied his leisure moments in making thirty-two studies in oil colours of some of the more important scenes in the Holy Land; and he has reproduced these studies with an explanitory text. The colouring is more satisfactory than the outline. In some instances the varied effects of light and shade, the brilliant tints, the transparent haze have been hap. pily caught. The descriptions of places, if not altogether accurate, are sometimes quaint.
