Nathan the Wife. A Dramatic
Poem, in Five Acts. By GOTTHOLD EPHRAIM LESSING. Translated from the German, with a Biography of Lessing, and a Critical Survey of his Position, Writings, &c By Dr. ADOLPHUS REICH.
"Dr. Adolphus Reich has however ventured upon an English translation of this poem, and when allowance is made for necessary shortcomings, the comparative degree of success with which he has accomplished his task is really surprising. There is a general tone about his translation which is very like the original--a certain dryness and laconic force of expression that constantly reminds us of the original."--Westminster Review.

The Earth we Inhabit: its Past,
Present, and Probable Future. By Captain A. W. Drayson, R. A.
"The book is neatly turned out, is a complete multum in parvo, and deserves to be examined with great care, and without prejudice, for the evidence, to a mind gifted with common sense, is certainly moll convincing. There will, however, probably, be considerable opposition offered to it by those whose fame has been built upon the various and intricate theories which are now supposed to explain all the above-mentioned facts, but which, in too many cafes, merely mystify the reader, and leave the causes more obscure than ever."--Kentish Independent.

The Campaner Thal; or, Discourses .
on the Immortality of the Soul. By JEAN PAUL FR. RICHTER. Translated from the German by JULIETTE GOWA. Second Edition.
"Report, we regret to say, is all we know of the 'Campaner Thal,' one of Richter's beloved topics, or rather the life of his whole philosophy, glimpses of which look, forth in almost every one of his writings. He died while engaged, under recent and almost total blindness, in enlarging and remodelling this 'Campaner Thal.' The unfinished manuscript was borne upon his coffin to the burial vault; and Klopstock's hymn, 'Auferstehen wirst du!' 'Thou shalt arise, my soul,' can seldom have been sung with more appropriate application than over the grave of Jean Paul."-- Carlyle's Miscellanies.

It is a laudable design, well and judiciously executed."--Morning Star.

"A work which most assuredly takes its place among the moll valuable of modern contributions to historical literature. With the fidelity of a chronicle it mingles the fascination of a romance. As a truthful record of the conflicts between Church and State in England, from the Conquest till the latter part of the twelfth century, it will serve as an admirable manual for the Student; while the sketches of life in olden days, which sparkle in its pages, cannot fail to render it acceptable to the general reader."--Morning Star.

Hymns and Meditations. By A. L.
Waring. Eighth Edition.
"These Hymns and Meditations appear to us to be the effusions of a mind deeply imbued with the spirit of Christianity, and highly appreciating its blessings. The writer is evidently one who deeply communes with her own heart, and who cannot be Satisfied unless She realizes the joys of communion with her Saviour. There is, too, a beautiful simplicity in the composition of the Hymns, which renders the perusal of them as pleasing as it is profitable."--British Mother's Magazine.

Notes from the Life of a Syrian.
By Antonius Ameuney, of Syria. Being Extracts from the MS. Biography now preparing for publication.
The early life of the Author was spent in a series of thrilling adventures and daring exploits, performed amid scenery and people the moll interesting to every Christian. His journey down the Jordan, and the scientific survey of the Dead Sea, were accomplished only by incurring great peril and imminent personal dangers. His wanderings on Mount Lebanon and among the Arab tribes of the Syrian plains, abound with incidents of a highly romantic and deeply interesting character.

The Book of Temperance Melodies.
Adapted and Arranged to Popular Airs. New Edition, enlarged. By the Rev. E. P. HOOD.
"Use has frequently been made of my volume, by some parties evidently more greedy than godly, wholly unjustifiable; whole impressions of the book have been struck off--selections made and fold without a word of request. I have now lying before me several printed editions. I have only to fay to my friends who have done this, they certainly are not moral reformers. I must further beg that where the songs are selected the friends will kindly take them as they stand, and not kill them with the kindness of their critical correction. 'We'll win the day,' and 'Love shall be the conqueror,' and half-a-dozen others, have so changed faces that the father does not know his own children."--From the Preface,

By the Rev. EDWIN PAXTON HOOD.
"The great extent of Mr. Hood's reading--his thorough intimacy with all the highest forms of our literature--has enabled him to bring to the illustration of Wordsworth's mental character, and to the exposition of his style and principles of poetry, an affluence of knowledge rarely to be met with. His page literally blazes with poetry, rich and eloquent dissertation, imagery and illusion, varied and beautiful."--Evangelical Magazine.

The Lay of the Stork. By Miss
LOUISA STUART COSTELLO, Author of the "Memoirs of Anne of Brittany, " &c
The incident which gave rife to this poem may be thus briefly told:--A young German lady of eighteen had a fancy, a few years ago, to discover to what region the Storks repaired on quitting a northern climate; and for that purpose attached to the neck of a tame one a letter, in which she begged for an answer from whoever found it, informing her of the place where the bird alighted, and any other particulars attending it. The bird was shot by an Arab, in Syria, and her letter, copied by him without understanding its language or import, was lent to the Prussian vice-consul, at Beyrout, who courteously addressed the desired communication, to the young lady. The correspondence which followed is given in the Appendix, with a copy of the original letter.

It consists largely of correspondence of a Angularly primitive character, finely illustrating the power and the preciousness of Divine truth, alike in health and in affliction. What we may deem the frame in which the epistolary jewels maybe said to be let--the Author's connecting passages--is marked by Simplicity, humility, and love, to an extent which will probably subject the worthy writer to ridicule among those who, insensible to the workings of unsophisticated nature, are revolted by its most genuine exhibition."--Christian Weekly News.
