THE recent advance of the study of history and political economy after philosophic methods and with reference to their present bearing upon national and social life, is a sign of the times in our schools and colleges that should be welcomed; and new text-books to meet this felt want are making their appearance. Such a book as Nordhoff's "Politics for Young Americans" (Harper's) can scarcely be too highly praised. Prof. Sumner's "History of American Currency" (Holt) is broader than its name implies, and is used as a text-book in Harvard and Yale. Freeman's "Outlines of History" (Holt) is made the basis of the teaching of that subject at Harvard, the College of the City of New-York, the Naval Academy, and elsewhere, and the other volumes of the series, on individual countries, are very good. The "Epochs of History" (Scribner) volumes are very clear and philosophical in the statement of causes, and should find a place in every teacher's library. To the forthcoming volume on "The French Revolution," Pres. White, of Cornell, who has made a special study of this field, will add a course of reading upon it. Green's "History of the English People" (Macmillan), now issued in a cheap edition at $2, has made its author a reputation at once by its brilliant record of real progress; and we may refer also to Prof. Adams's "Democracy and Monarchy in France" (Holt) as a model of suggestive and practical historical writing. Col. Higginson's "Youth's History of the United States" has the same qualities in its more modern field. All these are new within the year.

THE great work on Harvard College, according to the plan of its projectors (Messrs. F. O. Vaille and H. A. Clark, Old President's House, are the names given), promises to be one of the most ambitious volumes attempted in this country. The volume will be an imperial quarto, 11 x 14, at $30, in cloth, and will be illustrated and historical, containing a number of engravings, full-page heliotypes of every building connected with the University, several interiors, representations of the College at different periods in its growth, portraits of a few of the former Presidents, all the professors at present in the University, with autographs and brief biographies, society rooms, and other objects of interest, making the total number about one hundred and twenty. Pres. Samuel Elliot will write a full history of the college, and other writers, graduates of Harvard, and numbering some of the most distinguished writers in the country, will treat of the several buildings, societies, college publications, the athletic and social features, and the professional schools of the University. Among them may be named A. P. Peabody, J. F. Člarke, J. R. Lowell, C. E. Norton, Ó. W. Holmes, Samuel Longfellow, R. H. Dana, Jr., J. S. Dwight, C. P. Cranch, Col. Higginson, Emory Washburn, and hosts of others. With such writers, and the Osgood heliotypes, the work should be worthy of old Harvard.

WE hear that there is a steadily increasing demand for the little " Pronouncing Handbook" issued last year by Lee & Shepard.

A BOOK of literary selections, with critical remarks, is forthcoming at Harpers', under the title of " Might and Mirth of Literature." A New-Jersey teacher, by the somewhat famous name of Macbeth, is the author, and the book is said to be admirably calculated for schools.

MR. HIGGINSON's admirable "History of the United States," for young people, promises to be one of the most successful books issued in a long time. The first edition was taken up within a few days after its publication. Lee & Shepard are the publishers.
