LL.D., Author of “Getllng-On in the World,’' and “The a runt Convenors, and Other Essays." 12m0., pp. 08-1. Chicago; 8. C. Griggs & Co. An author could choose no more prolific and lorlUng topic than this of ‘‘Words*,’* none jround which a greater variety of Important thought* naturally cluster. It Is a theme on vbich an InOnlto number of changes may bo rung, and all of them have some virtue or charm of counsel, suggestion, or onllvcnmcnt. Words are related to Ideasas tho body Is to tho spirit, fliey have on equal sanctity, and aro to bo treated with tho same reverence. Be careful what you say, and you will bo careful what you think and what you do. The man who Is exact In his utterances, striving always to express accurately his mcaulilfe, neither overstating nor understating his opinions and Intentions, is one who may bo trusted In everything. His word comes to bo literally as good as his bond. The bablt of speaking tho truth is Invariably as sociated with tho practice of truth. The con tinual endeavor to uso tho terras that will pre cisely fit tho thought 1s ono of tho most suc cessful In inducing honest principles for tho government of all action. Language Is not only tho Interpreter of tho mind, It is tho Index of character. The soul of the speaker aud tho writer Is Incarnated In his stylo of phraseology, and then betrays what sort of personality it Is, os plainly as In his tono of voice, bis countenance, his gall, and his ges ture * Therefore, words are sacred, solemn tilings, to bo regarded as living potentialities, whoso Influence, for good and evil, for happi ness and misery, Is beyond calculation. They : should bo dealt with os wo would deal with hu man hearts, justly, gently, and very hccdfully. Tho author, Who has hecomo tho familiar, friend of a largo circle through bis sage advice about “ Getting-On In tho World,” Is eminently • qualified to discuss tho value of words, their rleht uses and tholr constant abuses. He has been studying them lovingly, In tbo literatures of bis own aud other tongues, far many Indus trious years; and fow have learned so well their canacitles, and tho wonderful and beautiful ser vices to which they, have been put by tho apt and eloquent writers of tho past and present lime. Ho has not attempted to produce a formal treatise, but rather to present a series of IntcrcstUig essays, In each onu of which some separate point In the main topic Is dwelt upon In tbo easy, unceremonious manner of friend conversing with friend, lu this genial way, a • multitude of Impressive and agreeable truths aro remarked about v --Tlio filgullhmnce of Words, Tho Morality In Words. Tho Secret of ’ Apt Words, Tho Fallacies In Words, Words Without Meaning, Tho Curiosities of Lan guage, Nicknames, Caramon Improprieties of Speech, and other equally Interesting phases of tho matter In question. t As la tho custom of tho author, ho ha* pow dered his pages with select anecdotes, and al lusions, and quotations, from a wide range of writers. His reading has been immense: and the Jewels of thought ondtho marvels of dic tion which It has revealed to him have been se curely treasured, and tbo best of them grace fully employed to enrich his own copious and exuberant sentences. An extract taken from tho chapter on “Tho Secret of Apt Words" will fairly exhibit Dr. Mathews’ aptitude for choosing and commanding a brilliant concourse 1 of tbo parts of speech: ...

It Is certainly not lesJsoto ico how tbo Alexanders and Napoleons of letters marshal their verbal battalions on tbo battle-fields of thought. Foremost among those who wield despotic sway over tho domain of letters Is My Lord Macon, whoso words aro like a Spartan pha lanx. closely compacted,—almost crowding each other, so close aro tholr files,—and all moving In Irresistible array, without con fusion or chasm; now holding some Thermopylie of new truth against some scholastic Qeroxes, now storming some ancient Malakolfof error, bat al ways with “victory sitting caglo-wlngcdon their crcsta."

Pries, (A, 50.' * Dr. Norman Muclood was one ol that Influ ’ tttlai baud ol liberal Christian* la Great Hrit- Ba which Included such men as Dr. Arnold, Frederick Maurice, and Charles Kingsley. Although a minister in tho Established Church ol flcolhuul, ho broke many of tho bonds that harrowed the religious faith of tho nation, and exerted tho might of earnest convictions, a thong mind, and a loving heart, to spread wood the cpthollc spirit which ho believed to to alone consistent with the teachings of Christ, ho was not a man of extraordinary intellect oq hi great learning; but a settled purpose, active Ufcrglc*, hamono sympathies, tender fouling*, *ad honest simplicity, gave him uncommon power ever tho mind# of the people. Ills name bad traveled for abroad; but lu Scotland ho wts hwversolly esteemed and beloved, through frhglthd ho woe honorably known, and lu Amor tbcrq were many fmpUtnr with his work and repute. • /Bis/other and grandfather were ministers bo* ih'.hnnn, and he was born at Campbeltown, on gh ooQthwest coast of Scotland, m 1813, Jits i£*v training was of a somewhat desultory gWeri but, at tho ago of 10, ho entered Uio at Glasgow, ami, lour year# after, Stall 0 EBlnburg to study theology. While , ftto cpiww la dlrWly, he lor w* tw» occunlcfl the position of tutor to tho only son of Henry rrcston, Esq., of Moscby Hall,— spending apart of tho time on tho Continent, and tho remainder at Moscby . Hall. In Starch, 1838, ho was ordained n minister, and settled in the pariah of Loudon, In Ayrshire, where he re mained five year*. In the severe controversy which finally ended In the disruption of the National Church, Dr. Maclcnd adopted a middle course, Joining the parly called “The Forty,” wlio avoided indorsing tho extreme measures of either body of tho chief contestants. In 1813, Dr. Mecleod left tho parish of Lou don for tlmt of Dolkeilh, and, In 1851, was In ducted minister of tho liarony I’arlsh, in Glasgow. In tho same year Im was married to Catherine Ann Mackintosh, daughter of William Mackintosh, Esq., of Gothics. In 1800, he accepted tho editorship of (Jowl WonUj which, under .Ids direction, was tiio organ of tho liberal school of Orthodoxy. Thu following twelve were tho busiest years of his life, as in addition to his regular pastoral and editorial duties ho presided over the India lisslon of the Church, odlclattid as one of tho Ucen's Chaplains during her residence at Itolmoral, and engaged In various’ other work coming legitimately within tho province of an active Christian laborer. Ills health gradually declined during the last years of his career, and he died in 1873; a few days alter the celebration of his GOlb birthday. Tho large volumes which comprise his biogra phy contain liberal extracts from his Journals and correspondence. An amusing feature of tho letters Is the pentil sketches with which they were freely Illustrated, and which are here re produced. Dr. Maclcou possessed an Incxhaust bio fund of humor, which kept his own spirits fresh and cheery, and won a source of great at traction to his friends. Nowhere In tho record of his life Is this happy gift ho clearly shown os In the cxtrcmcly-funny caricatures that he was lu tho habit of inserting In the text of his com munications to iotimatu friend.-. CHRISTINA ROSETTI'S POEMS. POEMS. By CumsilNA J. Uosr.TTI. 10mo., pp. 800. Boston: Roberts Brother*. Chicago: Jen sen, McClurg A Co. Price, yl. r.O. Christina Uosetti slugs like n bird, In a strain ns sweet, mid careless, and perfectly tuned. She seems to sing from the pure Joy of It, with* out any definite attempt to convey much mean ing In her lays, but with the simple purpose of relieving her heart of the melody that dlls It, There Is sometimes a tone of sadness shading her verses, and hinting that an early blight has fallen upon the hopes of the minstrel; yet the sluxdow Is so light and so .evanescent that It scarcely betrays its presence ere it lias departed. In truth, the poetry of Christina Uosetti Is almost as objective as that of Drowning, giving very little sign of the real personality of the author. In the devotional pieces, however, there Is a sincere fervor which discloses ndccply rcllgious cost of mind. The dainty, airy grace which Is the must striking characteristic of tho poet Is admirably portrayed in tho following lender lyric: CONFLUENTS. As rivers seek tho sea, Much more deep than they, So my soul seeks thee, . Faraway: As running rivers moan On tbclr course alone, So I moan, Left alone. • As tho delicate rose To tho sun’s sweet strength Doth herself unclose, UrcadlU and length: So spreads my heart to thee, Unveiled utterly, I to thee Utterly. * As monfcng dew exhales Sunwards, pure and free, So my spirit falls After tlico: • As dew leaves not a trace On tho green earth’s face, 1 no trace On thy face. • Its goal tho river knows, Dewdrops dud a way, Sunlight cheers tho rose In her day: Khalil, lone sorrow past, Find thee ul last? Sorrow past. Thee »t last! The poet’s power of picturesque description Is evinced in tho piece entitled “From House to Home,” from which we select a few stanzas. Two contrasting stones arc depleted. Tho first was a “plcnaure-plucc,” wherein all happy tilings disported: Swift squirrels on tho pastures took their case, With leaping lambs snfo from the nnfoarod knife; All slnglng-blrda rejoicing in those trues FulfllleiT their careless life. My heath lay farther off, where lizards lived In strange, metallic mall, Just spied and gone, Like darted lightnings hero and there perceived. But nowhere dwelt upon. Frogs and fat toads wore thereto hop or plod, And propagate In peace, an nnconth crew, Where velvet-headed rashes rustling nod, And spill tho morning dew. All caterpillars throve beneath my rule, With snails and sings In comers out of sight; I never marred tho curious, sudden stool That perfects in a night. In tho second picture, a bllgbthas fallen upon all around: Azure and sun were starved from heaven above; No dew had fallen, but biting frost lay hoar; 0 love, I knew that I should meet my love, Should And my love no more. “My love no more,” 1 muttered, stunned with pain; I shed no tear, I wrung no passionate hand, Till something whispered: “You ahull meet again. Meet in a distant land.” Then, with n cry like famine, I arose. I lit roy candle, searched from room to room, Searched up and down; u war of winds that froze Swept through the blank of gloom. I searched day after day, night after night; Scant change thusemuu to me of night or day; “No more,” 1 wailed, “no more’’; andtrlum6d my light, And gnashed, but did not pray. lu the full collection of poems assembled la the presentodltlun, thereuro very many us sweet and strong us these from which we have quoted. Scarcely any, ludued, lack some charm of senti ment or rhythm to make them worth reciting. Tho lovega of musical versus will rejoice that the volume has come within the reach of Amer ican readers. , SCRIRNEU’B MAGAZINE. SCRIBNER’S MONTHLY: An Illuhtuatid Mao* azikb you tub Pkoflb.

The popularity of tho series of small histories ranged under tho title of “ Epochs of Modern History,” nos been so decided that tho plan on which they were based bas been adopted for a second course of volumes, embracing “ Epochs In Ancient History.” ' Tho first number of tho new suite contains on ndmlrably-frnmcd sketch of that period In the life of Greece which was devoted to n prosecution of the wars with Persia. Thu era was one of the most momentous In the existence of the Hellenic tribes, determining the deadly combat between the persistent des potism of tho East and the progressive freedom and enlightenment of tho West. .Mr. Cox has produced an excellent epitome of the centuries during which tho struggle continued, depleting with much clearness the vicissitudes through which, not only the Greeks, but tho other nations involved with themselves In tho great warfare, were compelled to pass. The book 1s well furnished with mans, chronological tables, Indexes, and other adjuncts essential to Its completeness. _ SANITARY DRAINAGE. THE SANITARY DRAINAGE OP HOUSES AND TOWNS. Hjr GeoiiOr E.

Tho book Is intended for tho benefit of Iho average citizen and house holder, and combines valuable Information re garding tho prevention of disease, with practi cal directions for tho removal of wastu prod ucts, and their poisonous emanations, from tho vicinity of human habitations.

The first Impulse Is to regard this book with suspicion, as manufactured to sell on tho strength of tho popular watch-word, “ Centen nial.” But examination proves It to be a work of much genuine merit. The stylo Is uncom monly sprightly and attractive, and will win upun almost any reader. Facts and anecdotes are deftly woven together, producing a narra tive that Is full of instruction and entertainment for old and young. It Is more properly a story than u history of tho single century or our In dependence; imt It is so skillfully told that, for this reason alone, It deserves to be commended.

George Sand has recently published another volume, of four feuilldom printed some time ago iu the Ilcvue. “ Carlta ” is tho name of a new story by Mrs. Ollphant, to bo begun In tho Juno number of tho CofnhUl Magazine. * A History of the United States, “from a somewhat novel point of view,” Is promised by Mr'W. F. Hoc, author of “Wilkes, Sheridan, Fox.” Our humorous literature Is to bo Increased by “ A Bald-Headed History of America," a bur lesque on historical events In the United States, illustrated by Thomas Worth. The publication In Germany of Goethe's cor respondence with tho Brothers Humboldt has been followed by that of his correspondence with Aug W. and Friedrich Scldegel, Tlccfc, and others. Although Lord Lytton has withdrawn “ King Poppy,” u new edition of the poems he has al ready published Is to be brought out by Chair man <fc Hall tn London. Tho llrat volume will appear this month. Mr. Macgahnn’sncw book, “ Under tbo North ern Lights,” Is out In London. It Is a record of tlie cruise of the Pandora to Peel's Strutt In search of Sir John Franklin's papers, and has a map and Illustrations. Awork entitled “The Last Act: Being the Funeral Rites of Nations and Individuals.” which will contain a curious account of the dls- Cosol of tho dead by lire, cremation, water, air, urial, etc., edited by William Tcgg, la an nounced In London. Leon Cliottcau, of Paris, lias just published a work entitled “Le Ouerre aa Vlndependeiue (1775-1783) la Fraueaia cm Auurlque." It is pre ceded by an Introduction by M. Lubouluyc, whoso warm admiration for America and her Institutions shines forth hi every passage. Murray, the London publisher, will bring out a new eultlon of Sir Gardner Wilkinson’s great work, tho “Mauneni and Customs of the An cient Egyptians,” which has long liecn out of print because tho author’s health has prevented ids undertaking Its revision and enlargement- It will be edited by Dr. Birch. An Important work on “David Fredrick Strauss, and tho Theology of Ills Time,” is about to he Issued In Germany. The llrst volume, just ready, takes biography down to tho time of StruudS 1 expulsion irom Tuebingen in conso queneu of the “Life of Jesus,” his call to Zucrlcb, and the Zucrlcb revolution. A book on “The Pleasures of Angling,” by tho Hon. George Dawson, of the Albany Evening Journal, will be published In a few days by Sheldon & Co., Now York. Mr. Dawson Is a veteran sportsman, having taken thlrty-llvo annual trips to distant streams where tho salmon and trout must do congregate. Tho Boston Transcript says that much ucw evidence, neglected by other writers on Bunker Hill, has been utilized In tho Itev. I. N. Tarbor’s “Life of Israel Putnam,” which Lockwood, Brooks & Co. have hi preparation. Tho author makes a strong argument In proof that Putnam was the actual commander ol tho Americans at Bunker Hill. It Is stated that there Is a largo Dickens cor respondence which John Forster would not touch, —enough to mnku three or four volumes, well worthy of publication. It seems likely that another life of Dickens will appear, ft having beeu remarked that thu present one, by Forster, falls to satisfy either the public or the novelist's friends. Mrs. Julia Ward ITowo baa nearly completed the brief memoir of bur lute husband, Dr. 1 tmvu, fur the blind, and it will bo printed during tho summer. Probably a more extended biography, Including much ul Dr. Uuwu’a corrcspundcuco, it la said, will bo prepared by Mrs. Howe during the next two or three years,—tho material fur such a life being very abundant. A magnificent Illustrated edition of Victor Hugo’s ‘ # Quutre-vlngl-treUc” has recently bceu published In Paris. Thu author himself, who Is said to havo considerable artistic talent, has contributed three Illustrations, and the other engravings arc by Morin, Huneou, IJrlou. Daniel Vierge. Gilbert, Karl Bodmer, and E« Bayard, and their peers. The fourth volume of the Frvtteh translation of tihaksi>curu by Fran cois Victor Hugo—the elder of tno two sons of Victor Hugo—has lust appeared. Thu month before his death Francois Hugo revised the wlpdo edition, which b the one most valued In Franco. “Bluecher In Letters Written During tho Campaigns of 181U-1S15” b the title of a work just puldbhcd In Germany by E. von Colomb, probably a descendant of tome relative of Bluoeher’s second wife, Kulharhm Amalia von Colomb. Apart from the constant Interchang ing of tho dative and, thy accusative coses,—an Idiosyncrasy with which all illiterate Prussians of tho old provinces os well ua of the Capital seem to no ollllctod,—Blucchcr’s letters are mainly Interesting from the Indifference the old warrior displayed on all occasions for the spell ing and punctuation which are taught in the schools, and hb disregard of the German rule to begin all nouns with a capital letter—ho seems to have reserved tho latter honor foi; the verbs. A Lion Loose. yvo York Tribune, A largo African lion, known ua “Parker,” be longing to Howo & Cushing's circus umi menag erie, at ami Fill avenues, in Brooklyn, broke some of thu bars of bis cage yesterday afternoon, and dashed through thu tent which contained thu wild animals into thu ujieu enavu which surrounded thu circus tent and which was separated from the street by a high broad fence. Great excitement was at oueo created among thu performers and employes, who rushed for thu street in their stage costumes. During all tlic excitement tho.amUeneu iu thu main tent were unuwaru of what was going on iu tire smaller luclosuroand outside. As the perform ers wore lied, Aff. Howies, thu man who had been left by Prof. Losson in charge of thu cages, seized r. pula and dashed through the opening into the lent. As he passed one of the boxes blockading thu passage, one of tho female performers rushed toward him, pursued by thu lion. Her clothing had beeu torn from her back by tho animal, which bad caught thu.sweeping trail of her dress, tearing it to sluvds. Howies, as thu woman sprang toward him, seized ami threw her Qtcr otto of the large dressing etag*, at tho tamo time throwing himself to one side, thus escaping from tho Infuriated Hon. After looking around for n minute In tho open space, tho animal dashed back again toward tho me nagerie, encountering one of tho performing dogs, Tatty, In his passage. The linn seized tho dog in his jaws, and In an Instant crushed It Into a shapeless mass. This appeared to mollify his anger, ami ho crouched upon the ground .munching the carcass and growling with satis faction. Meanwhile, the performers and tho men who could he revalLd from.fllght collected around tho tent, armed with sticks, poles, and cluhs. At tills time Trof. Loason arrived, and, armed with a weapon used for punishing tho animal, began the assault on the lion. Ho ordered bis aids to form a seml-drclc around tho beast, and. approaching it, snapped his whip, shouted, and pointed towards the cage. The animal growled and glared upon his master, who, keeping his eyo upon It, struck tho beast a severe blow across tho face. It howled and retreated toward tho cage. Following 11 rapidly up with well ' directed blows, one of widen lamed ono .of tho animal’s legs, (he lion was forced Into a cage, which was then securely fastened. The Hon was raptured In Africa when he was" apparently about 4 years old. in the London Amphitheatre ho killed his keeper, Thomas Jarvis, a noted Hon-tumer.

The entire number Is a credit to onr American periodical literature, which has of late deservedly attracted so mach attention abroad. Tho Sporting Titntt of London, In a recent Issue says; SCRIBNER'S Is tho best attempt wo have over seen to combine tho domestic and the purely liter cry magazine. As a rule, tho magazines which aro termed •‘domestic” or “family” In England, have very few literary attractions; they arc too homely and housewifely in tone. ButScmnHrn’s, while it lias ail the I»cbi features of tho family mag azine, has also the higher and more sterling worth of the average run of similar papers Tn onr best forma of periodical literature. The mis cellaneous articles In Hciubneii are, as a rnlo. superior to the bestehllling monthlies, whilst tho Illustrations leave moat of our best Illustrated mag azines Immeasurably In the rear, both as regard* quality and ouantlty. There is not a bcUoMlns troted periodical than Hciubkkr cztanl, and not one in England onylhing like equal to It Price, SI.OO a year i 35 cents a Number.
