Edinburgh Review, with a speech of Mr. Sumner's, and a notice of events which followed that speech; we have also Letters from Rome to Friends in England, by the Rev. J. W. Burgon; The Clerical Assistant, an Elocutionary Guide to the Reading of the Scriptures, with Passages marked for Pitch and Emphasis, by G. Vandenhoff; and a similar treatise by the same author, entitled The Ladies' Reader.

In GEOGRAPHY AND TRAVEL We have few works of importance, but we may mention a work entitled Thirty-three Years in Tasmania and Victoria, with Historic Jottings, and Counsel to Emigrants; and The West Indies, their Social and Religious Condition, by E. D. Underhill. In HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY we find Sir George Cornewall Lewis's long-promised Historical Survey of the Astronomy of the Ancients; The Private Diary of the late Duke of Buckingham and Chandos, in 3 vols.; The Marquis of Dalhousie's Administration of British India, by Edwin Arnold; The Shannon's Brigade in India, an Account of Sir William Peel's Naval Brigade in the Indian Campaign of 1857-8; The Fathers of Greek Philosophy, by Bishop Hampden, chiefly from the Encyclopædia Britannica; a second series of Mrs. Delany's Autobiography, 3 vols.; and Historical Sketches and Reviews, by Viscount Cranborne, reprinted from the St. James's Medley, we believe an amateur magazine.

Under the head of THEOLOGY we have noted the important work announced by Mr. Murray under the title of Aids to Faith, which is evidently designed to counteract the teachings of Essays and Reviews: the editor is Dr. Thomson, the Provost of Queen's and Bishop of Gloucester and Bristol; Bishop Butler's Sermons and Remains, with a Memoir and Indices by the Rev. E. Steere; and Bishop Butler's Analogy of Religion; and The Supernatural in relation to the Natural, by the Rev. James Cosh.

In FICTION we find Mr. Sala's stories, The Two Prima Donnas, and The Dumb Porter, reprinted from a monthly periodical; Marrying for Money, by Mrs. Mackenzie Daniels, 3 vols.; A Great Sensation, by Edward H. Dering, 3 vols.; Olive Blake's Good Work, by J. C. Jeaffreson, 3 vols.; The St. Aubyns of St. Aubyn, by the Author of Charley Nugent, 2 vols.; and Childhood and Youth, a Tale, translated from the Russian of Count Nicola Tolstoi.

A few NEW EDITIONS may also be mentioned, among which are Mr. Tennyson's Idylls of the King, with a new poetical dedication to the late Prince Consort; The Queen of Hearts, by Wilkie Collins, in 1 vol., with a steel engraving; and The Treasury of Science, Natural and Physical, by F. Schadler, illustrated, which is a new edition of the work entitled The Book of Nature.

Messrs. LONGMAN & Co.'s list comprises, in addition to numerous works already announced, Ellice, a Tale, by L. N. Comyn, 1 vol.; and a Manual of English Literature, Historical and Critical, with a Chapter on Metres, by T. Arnold.

Messrs. SEELEY, JACKSON, and HALLIDAY have in the press The Adopted Child, a Story illustrative of the Spirit of Adoption, by the Author of Katherine Douglas; and other works.

In announcing the fact of the Baronetcy conferred by Her Majesty upon Mr. Wentworth Dilke, one of the Royal Commissioners for the Exhibitions of 1851 and 1862, our contemporaries generally have spoken of it as a recognition of literary merit. This is, we believe, entirely a mistake, Sir Wentworth Dilke never having had any connection with authorship, avowed or anonymous. Sir Wentworth was one of the originators-if not the originator of the Exhibition of 1851, and it was understood to be mainly to his talents for organisation, and indefatigable and disinterested labours, that the success of that great national undertaking was due. He declined, we believe, at that period all honours and rewards, including a sum of £3000 (not £6000 as has been stated) voted to cover expenses. Sir Wentworth has been long known as an active promoter of art, science, and social improvement, whose election to the presidentship or into the council of any society directed to these objects was a sure forerunner of prosperity and progress. No one could have had better means of judging of the value and extent of these services to the public than the late Prince Consort, and the fact that Her Majesty's intention was announced in the papers only a few days after the death of His Royal Highness, is perhaps the best indication of the true character and spirit of the honour thus conferred.

The final decision of the Court of Common Pleas in the case of Reade v. Conquest turns a suggestion which we made some time ago in these pages from half jest into downright sober earnest. Henceforth it is impossible to doubt that an enterprising novelist has it in his power to prevent playwrights from appropriating his inventions, by converting them, without his consent, into popular dramas-a wrong for which there has hitherto been believed to be no remedy. It is decided that if an author shall himself turn his novel into a play no dramatic pirate will be at liberty to plead that he founded his piracy, not on the play, but on the novel. Any author, therefore, who should think it worth the trouble while the type is standing to direct the printer to take out the descriptive portion and strike off a few copies with the title of “A Drama, Act I, &c.," may register at Stationers' Hall and defy the playwrights. We recommend this solution of the question to Mr. Dickens, Mr. Wilkie Collins, and other authors who have long battled unsuccessfully with the managers on this point.

M. Walewski, the French Minister, has just published an address delivered by him as President of the Commission for inquiring into the state of literary and artistic property in France, which in these times of international copyright conventions is interesting to English authors and publishers. It appears that by the present French law, an author's right extends to the life of himself, and his widow if she survive him, with thirty years further for their children; but by a curious oversight the words "assignees" having been omitted, a single gentleman devoting

[ocr errors][merged small]

himself to authorship, comes under the operation of an old law passed in the heat of the first French Revolution, and any publisher to whom he sells a work can only count upon a term of ten years after his death-that being all the law allows in his case. The result in the case of French literary men is, that horror of the Malthusian philosophers, a positive premium upon marriage and large families. On the whole, however, the French copyright law must be considered more favourable to authors than our own; but the tendency of M. Walewski's opinions is evidently towards making copyright perpetual.

Readers, whom experience has taught to skip all verses in magazines, may make an exception in the case of Mr. Edmund Yates's poem called Invited and Inviting, in the current number of Temple Bar. The reading of the letter of the kind-hearted, rattle-brained friend is a capital piece of semi-humorous verse; but the attempt to answer the invitation in a cynical strain, and the sudden transition to a confession of a heart too sorrowful to join in Christmas festivities is full of poetry and true pathos.

The current number of Fraser has a remarkable article from the pen of Mr. John Stuart Mill, On the Civil War in America, which cannot fail to exercise considerable influence at the present time. Mr. Mills's opinion is decidedly against the Southern seceders.

Messrs. DEAN and Son of Ludgate Hill have just issued a large number of entirely new valentines for the approaching season, ranging in price from one penny to a guinea, and embracing every kind of elaborate workmanship and device, with endless varieties of comic trick and laughable change. The oil-print in lace border, the "music in the shell," the Moveable Children, the Charm Valentine, in a card box, are really works of art in their way. The Gorilla Valentine, and the affected-looking gentleman, whose head may be suddenly converted into a donkey's, like the weaver's in the Midsummer Night's Dream, &c., are also decided improvements upon the old vulgarities which used to characterise the comic valentine.

Mr. Baillière has issued Part IV. of Ganot's Physics, with thirty-six engravings; also Dr. De Sietras Santa on the Climate of Algiers, in reference to the Chronic Affections of the Chest; and has received from Melbourne the Account of Burke and Wills' Exploring Expedition across the Continent of Australia.

The first number of the new monthly magazine, called London Society, fully redeems the promises of its publishers, being for variety and quantity of matter, and abundance of illustrations, equal to anything that has been produced in these shilling days. The number contains six full-page engravings, by F. R. Pickersgill, R.A., H. Sanderson, Louis Huard, and others, and ninety-six pages of letter-press, in double columns, in the fashion of Fraser. The articles comprise historical and biographical gossip on Hyde Park, Penshurst, and the Sydneys, Schiller, &c., sketches of Rotten Row, and other phases of London life of the day; practical papers on London flowers for drawing-room and dinner-tables, poems, pantomimes, and the theatres; stories, and other matters, while forthcoming numbers are already announced to contain articles on the Merchant Princes of London, London Localities, the Romance of the Peerage, &c.

Messrs. Chambers and Co.'s new weekly periodical, entitled The Book of Days, a monthly part of which is also before us, is, as its title imports, a miscellany of popular antiquities in connection (though not exclusively) with the calendar, including biography and history, curiosities of literature, and oddities of human life and character, with numerous engravings. It will form, when complete, a very curious and entertaining book of gossip and anecdote.

Mr. Kingston's Magazine for Boys for February takes a new development, being increased in size to 64 pages, and otherwise improved. In an interesting address on this occasion to his young readers, Mr. Kingston informs us that besides contributions of every variety to magazines and reviews, editing the Colonial Magazine, New Zealand Gazette, &c., he has beside him, while writing, fifty volumes written by his hand. We trust that his friends and admirers, young and old, will not forget these claims to their patronage.

Messrs. LONGMAN & Co. have just published their London Catalogue of Periodical Newspapers, &c., corrected to January 1862, which gives as usual the publishing offices, prices, days of publication, and other useful information.

The correspondent of an Edinburgh newspaper, who appears to be well informed, gives the following particulars concerning Dr. Guthrie and his contributions to Good Words :—“ What do you think of a Free Church congregation presenting one of its ministers with a carriage? I hear that Dr. Guthrie's people intend doing this, if they have not done so already. The Rev. doctor is certainly one of the most active as well as earnest of our Edinburgh ministers. Few of them are so often seen on the street, and yet few of them get through so much work. It is very profitable work, too, looked at merely from the pecuniary point of view. It is known here that the doctor got £30 for every monthly instalment of The Religion of Life, published in Good Words during last year. The chapters averaged about five pages each, and the sum paid by the enterprising publishers may therefore be said to have been at the rate of more than £90 a sheet - a scale of remuneration considerably higher, I should imagine, than was reached even in the case of some of Macaulay's most brilliant contributions to the Edinburgh Review. Then Messrs. A. & C. Black bring out the Rev. doctor's £30 chapters in the collected form of a book, which will doubtless be as popular as the author's other works."

AUCTIONS DURING THE ENSUING FORTNIGHT.-Mr. Hodgson, Feb. 6 and 7, several thousand volumes of modern books, chiefly in cloth. Messrs. Puttick and Simpson, Feb. 5, 6, 7, music, original MS. of Bach's preludes, fugues, &c. Messrs. Southgate and Barrett, Feb. 3 to 13, modern engravings, chromo-lithographs, watercolour drawings, stereoscopic slides, &c.
