Romarcb or TBI Harm; by Miss Pardoe; New York : Fetridge A Co. for talc by Col. Joe Shillingtou. England cannot boast of an authoreM equal to Miss Pard >e in point of genius, ability and industry. Her worka on tho era of Louis the Fourteenth, ocoupy a high plaoe among the standard literature of Great Fritain, and the was equally successful in giving a faithful and interesting picture of the " City of the SultanAdmitted, while at Constantinople, into the secret precincta of Seraglio point, and the more charming Harems which border the Bosphorus, she is not forced to draw upon her imagination for a description of lo calities, nor is she at a loss in narrating the in-door life of the degiaded Moslems of her own sex The recent invasion of English and Frenoh troops has made cad innovation on Maliommedan social life, and this work of Miss Pardoe s has consequently a historical ?alue not often attached to a work of fiction The plot is, nevertheless, an ingenious web of romance, embroidered with the beauties of Oriental passion, and deeply interesting Fetridge A Co., by publishing this sterling romance, have added to their reputation a* purveyors of a superior order of worka for the public taste.

The following good story we find in the last West Baton Rouge Sugar Planter: When the immortal Col. was Asses sor of a neighboring Parish, he was wont to have a high old time. One day, as he was as sessing the valuables of the oocupants of a K>g cabin, situated in the Pino woods, he in hia usual urbane manner, ''popped the ques tions" to the old woman, while the old man had gone out to procure some '? corn cob oil" wherewith to regale his guest. " How many horses, cattle, sheep, chickens, <ic., have vou got, my dear madam, and how much are they worth." " Well, thar's three old horses, but thoy aint wuth a cent?three cows, but they've bin lost this spring two years?nary sheep, 'cept my old man, and he aint wuth a cuss ; but be al ters votes tho Dcmmyorack ticket, and buys his whiskey by the jug when he can get it a heap cheaper by the bar'l The chickens was all stole tho other night, an' I hope to ma.'sy they'll piten the scamp that hooked 'em." " Very satisfactory estimate of your valua bles, particularly about the old man?but here's something worth assessing (pointing to a dirty little urchin about five years old tnat was clinging to the old woman's gown) how much do you value that little nigger at ? ' " Little uigger ! sakes alive ! you infernal old rascal, do you dare tooall my obild a nig ger7 Clar out 'o here, or I'll knock the day lights ont 'o you in a minnit. 0 my' to think I should live to be forty odd next class meeting and to hear my own child called a nigger by ? such a fellow as you !" I' By this time the old woman had worked herself up to a pitch of ungovernable fury, and raising her voice to a shrill yell, she callcd out to the old man, to come quick and " chaw ihe Colonel up," and we are compelled by an inward reward for veracity, to record that the Colonel's old bay made six miles of bad road in better time than Lecomte ever did in his palmiest days. A deputy was sect to attend to the unfinished business in the settlement, and the Colonel's remembrance of that day 's . work has "hoisted" him into the other ex- | . treme, for the last and biggest fight he was in was occasioned by his entering up#n his record when taking the last census six little mulat toes as the children of one of his constituents. < Washirgtow Cakorurd ?
