us a spicy volume mingling truth and keen irony Marriage in the United States. By Auguste Carlier.
Translated from the French by B. Joy Jeffries,
Black Sheep. By Edmund Yates, author of "Broken to Harness," etc. pp. 166. New York: Harper
This is No. 289 of Harper's "Library of Select Novels." Mr. Yates is a rising man among the younger English novelists.
The original work appeared, we believe, seven or eight years ago. It questions, in many particulars, the statements and deductions of De Tocqueville with reference to the respect paid to the marriage tie in the United States. There are three chapters, the first and second treating of marriage in France and in England, while the third, which occupies subdivisions the subject of marriage in the United the greater part of the volume, discusses in various

The present volume of the "Annual" includes the years 1865 and 1966, each of them prolific in scientific discovery. The general utility of the series is well known.

ers of English poetry. It has been republished by Mr. Widdleton in admirable style, and he has caused the "arguments" revised from the standard edition of Dryden to be prefixed to each book. From an "Introductory Note" we learn that Mr. Conyngton was born at Boston, Lincolnshire, in 1825, and that he entered upon his professorship at Oxford in 1854.
Dr. Dixon here gives us another volume of selections from "The Scalpel." The general title of the volume indicates an article in which the Doctor The contents are of a is by no means deficient. diversified character; in fact, scarcely anything is omitted from notice that furnishes, in society or in medical practice, an objective point of attack. The American Fruit Culturist: containing Practical Directions for the Propagation and Culture of Fruit Trees in the Nursery, Orchard, and Garden, with Descriptions of the Principal American and Foreign Varieties. By John J. Thomas. Illustrated with 480 accurate figures. pp. vi., 511. New York: William Wood & Co. The present edition of this work has been newly arranged, and most of it rewritten. It is not a professed treatise on the pomology of the country, but a guide to the practical cultivator in the manage
A New and Practical System of the Culture of Voice and Action, and a Complete Analysis of the Human Passions; with an Appendix of Readings and Recitations designed for Public Speakers, Teachers, and Students. By Prof. J. F. Frobisher. pp. 262. New York: Ivison, Phinney, Blakeman & Co. Mr. Frobisher's work impresses us very favorably.
It is sensible and practical, and shows knowledgement of the nursery, fruit garden, and orchard. The text appears to be thorough and complete, and there are illustrations on almost every page.

The Eneid of Virgil. Translated into English Verse by John Conyngton, M. A., Corpus Professor of Latin in the University of Oxford. pp. xxiv., 482. New York: W. J. Widdleton.
One could scarcely have supposed that the flex
ible metre with which Scott has familiarized us would have been adequate to represent the sonorous hexameters of Virgil. Yet the Oxford Professor has boldly employed it for that purpose, and the best critical authority of England has pronounced the attempt to do so a success. It is in that respect a literary curiosity. At the same time, no other version is so faithful to the original. It is fresh and vivacious, and has the air of an original production rather than of a translation, to such an extent that it has had quite a run in England among the read
