In his present romance Mr. Kendo has eclipsed all hi8 previous efforts, and presented us with a masterpiece of historic Action, which more than one leading English ro vlew has, ratlmr extravagantly, pronounced superior in many respects to anything written by tho author of "Waverlojr," whilst It combine* iti addition many of the features of the best descriptions of Dickers, fliilwer and Thackeray. It is unnecessary to dilate upon the ram effects of such a powerful combination In lighting up tho darkness of the Middle Ages, to which period tho story relates, aud of which wo liavo a series of the nvmt bril liant pictures. If the work has a fault, It Is its great length; but even this is the result of a careful elaboration of tho manners and customs of tho age, which it must Lavo oost Mr. Ib-ado long study to prei>are. To give even an outline of tho plot is, In tho present crowded state of our columns, Impossible. But we may slate thug much: that it relates the history of a Dutch couple who were the (tarents of Erasmus; and in this narrative the preat powers of Mr. lleade In painting pictures of domestic life, especially In poverty, aro ad mirably exhibited. Tho pathos and force with which their trials are described are absorbing, and tho variety of Incident which is introduced into the plot exhibits re markable powers of invention. Tile high and low life o the period, and the towns and villages of F.uropo, as they then wero, are brought before us with a happy pictorial ?fleet which has not often been equalled. And not these alone, but the forms and ceremonies of tn? church and government are passed in review, and we havoa de scription of asiege which is as novel and elaborate as it is exciting. As we read on tho story leads captive both heart and imagination, and we involuntarily fool it to bo a work of mature genius. We enter not only into tho spirit of the author, but into the joys and sorrows, fortunes and misfortunes, of the characters ho brings before us. We aro made to take part in their mental conflicts, their struggles, their hu miliations and their triumphs. As a panorama of me dieval lifo the talo possesses a do-:Wo interest for the student; for to the charm of fiction is added the va'.uo of faithtul portraituro. Tha situations aro well managed, and, as in all Mr. P.eade's b-x>ks, the dialogue is natural and spirited, and gives vitality to the characters. Tho author may congratulate him-elf upon having achieved a great success in tbe department uf historical turn nice. He lots written a work which suads aloes among modern novels. i Tub Okavasgo F.i-.ir By Charles J:'ia ; son. Harper A Brothers.

In connection with tho edorts said to be makiug by the English government to on courage theso explorations, it may be as well to nvntlon that Mr. Andersson denies tho statement that it has do frayed tbe cost of his several expeditious, lie baa paid, he says, bis own oxjienses all through; and this fact gives a character of greater inde|>oudonco to his narrative. His volume U full of Interest, and Is written In that plain, unaffected, but at tho same time Iraphic stylo which gave such valuo to his last work. The Lamplighter's Story and Other Tales lly Charles Dickens. Peterson X Brothers, i'lul auelphia. Brady, No. 22 Ann street. We havo hero before us, in a handsome vol::me of 467 pages, a'xdlection of short tales, most of which were originally published In "Household Words." Iu many of them the geuing of Charles Dlckeno never shone to more advantage, anil we recognize that minute and beautiful analysis of human character which charmod us so much in his earlier works. In others wo miss the genial and kindly spirit that characterized the latter, although tho style remains the same. Nevertheless, all have an in terest for us beyond that attaching to the mere story Itself. In this single volumo wo have an evidence of tbo wonderful facility with which this delightful author can pass from one subject to another, a grave mood to a gay ouo, from the deeply pathetic to tbo irresistibly comic. This is tho first time, we believe, that theso tales have made their appearance in fcook shape. The volume has been brought out in a form to corresjKind with Messrs. Peterson's edition of the author's works. Ckcii.f. Pkeems. By Theodore Winthrop. Ticknor & Fields, Boston. A powerfully written tale, tinctured perhaps with a lit. tlo too much affectation of qiiaintncss. after tho fashion of '?Elsie Venner," but still, like that work, forcible and ori ginal iu its manner or handling familiar themes. The Last Travels op Ida Pmipker? Inclusive of & Visit to Madagascar. Translated by H. \V. Dulekcn. lLtrper &. Brothers. Tho principal Interest of this volumo centres in tho bio graphical memoir prefixed to it. It has been prepared from notes left by Malum a PfoifTor, and Las receivod at the hands of her son Oscfr tho tonderesi treatment thai filial affection could stigeost. Notwithstanding this, it will not contribute to alter the conclusion to which the world has come, that the deceased lady uls a person of but limited intellectual gifts, and that but for her disre gard of the tram moll that environ her sex?a quality tha: she shared iu common with "our strong minded" Ameri can women?she had but few claims to be distinguished 'rom tho multitude. The particulars of her visit to Mada. gascar, which constitute about half (he contents of the volume, have been rendered familiar to most of our read ers through the different literary journals and periodicals of tho day.

The plan is a good one, and we have no doubt that the work will pass Into very general use. The Cotton Kingdom. By Frederick Law Olm' atead. Mason Brothers. Those who havo read Mr. Olmstead's f irmer works on tbe slave Plates will find nothing very new either iu the form of facts or conclusions In tbe present ono.

A lecture on this subjc.t was delived at Cooper tostltuto Thursday evening, by tho Kev. Henry Wa.d rieecher under tho auspices of the Young Men's Christian Assoei.' ations, atnl before a very .x.nsi lerablc audience The largo lectt.ro room of the instiiutto was about threo fourths fuii. The views or th ? le. tnrer, as advanced in his oration, do not matenaily diBer trim tho burden of his continual seng, in the pulpit and oot of it. in. how ever. did not so rashly as heretofore plunge in mn)i? r,. but took the groninl thiU tho war should cond icted on principles of equity an i morality. The defom oe of one s family and of one s household, ha thought, was a dm* incumbent on overy man, but this d-fen. o should never be carried1 on, by a system of brutality an t revenge Neither should a nation bo defended on brutal or barbarous principles. The war in itself was s-!f. manifest, but wo must not forgot to look bai:k into its causes, arid endeavor to eradicate them. The grand principle to lie always lield in view and which should animate the nation Is, that justice slia 1 be faithfully estabieho.l on a true basis. Peace can only be procured on such a ground, and until justica be es tiibiislied thero never would be peace in tho land as long as ii<?> reigns in boa von. .Starting on this basis, Mr Ikocher went on at great length to review the condition of the country and the efforts of the people in product the lal-ge army now In the field for the defence of r.ght and m his peculiar style strouKly urged tho claims of the North to tho support of all honest men. As we stated above the lecture was given under the auspices of the *oung Men sChristian Association, and the large audience that Wis present suflioiently speak for the popularity of tho lecturer as weil as for the prosperity of iho society.

A very interesting ceremony recently to<k pi tee In this camp in tho presentation of a sword to Colonel T. G ITUtassy, of the Garibaldi Guard. After a most severe service since September last, during which time our regi' went v.as bivouacked at Mm s- n's Hill, without tents or c'ottks, on the bnre pround and under the o]>en sky, ex posed to all the hardships of rainy weather and a bad cli mate, we were relieved on the 5th of November by tho IVKnlb regiment, Colonel Gllsa, and look possession of our old quarters at Hunter'sChapid. The next dny was the birthday of our beloved Colonel. Tiie whole camp was decorated w ith crowns and garlands, and officers as well as soldiers had done overylhlng In their power to make the day a r < al holiday.

General Bankrupt Law. In pursuance of advertisement, a well attended meeting If merchants w&s held Monday evening at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, for the purpose of t iking measures for tho drawing up of a genoral bankrupt bill, and Its presentation to Con gress at the ensuing meeting of that body. Koyul Phelps occupied tho chair, aud N. Sullivan acied as {Secretary. lhis wmn an adjourned inccUuu from tbc 21st of Octo* her, when a meeting was held at tho reouost of W. K Dodge, A. K. Wetmore, W. C. Smith and other promi nent merchants, and at which a cuiamittoo was appointed to whom the subject was referred for consideration. The mooting was entirely conflued to the mercantile body. The Chairman announced that tho Hon. Frederick CoJikiing had pie god himself to do all he could In Con gress io further the mercantile interest of tho city, in procuring the passage of a law entirely satisfactory to the creditors and debtors of the community. Alotter was read from the Hon. Roscoe Conkling, who was Chairman of Uio Sp< cut Committee appointed by Congress at the Thirtv sixtli session, in which ho recommeu.led tlialabtll, uu'lef the immediate supervision of tho merchants them selves, bo drawn and submitted to Congress. Tho C'liaiHMa.N said that this was rather an Inappropri ate ilin ? to p. ess ilio debtor questioD on the attention of Congress, hut y. t, from the unfortunate stato of the coun trv, it became an imperative duty on tho merchants of the city to get si.me bill passed whieh would protect tho creditor against tl.e fiaude.lent debtor. He wus anxious tu s e a bib p:.s?ed whieh would not only protect tl.e hon est debtor, but would at tho same t.nio otter a guarantee to tho croditor against fraudulent "'.ebtors. A letter directed to the morchanlsof Now YorH, from the merchants of Philadelphia, was r.ad, requesting the lid if tiio latter in getting pass vi through Congress a general bankrupt law The Uraft of a bill adopted by tho Merchants o: Philadelphia was read, the title of which is ' An act to provide a uniform system < f bankruptcy." The CiiAiiiMAN, referring to tin- proposod Philadelphia bill said that ho was surprised that such a bill could liavo ematiaTed fr. in a body of men who represented th ? honor able Iv.aiy of morcli iuta to which hitnse'l and tho gentle men belonged, lie condemned the bill as one which claime i an uidne protection for dishonest debtors, while It C m. eiely overlooked what was du" to the creditor. The proposed bill was nothing more or less than to pro cure frerti facilities for dishonesty. Th y wanted si cii a law a- tin- commerce of tin country demanded, and ho wns s re, notwithstanding the petition accompanying tin prop? .;ed bill, that Congress W' ttld not hastily adopt i,ch a bill. , The resolution adopted by tin committee appointed at the previous meeting was read, as follows:? Tl.at although your comw tteo question the e.rpedi: ney of passing a bankrupt law at the ensuing soF. ion of Con grots solely b' cnnse of the disturbed state of ill e uiulry and tiio impossibility of enf rcing its provisions on the rebellious States, yet. as they beiievo, a permanent law for tho relier of unfortinate and rioncst debtors, for tho equitnble distribution <f their elf 'cts among their ore litors, is most desirable, and in view 01 the tact that an earnest i-trort will be made to have a bankrupt law pnssod, they recommend that a committee bo appointed to procure legal aid to draft a bid and adopt tho necessary measures for its being brought before Congress. Mi OrnvKK moved to amend the latter part of the re solution so as to read:?'That a committee be appointed to C.raft a bill to be submitted at a future mnetiug of this bo,iy. Tho resolution, as am?uded, was adopted. Mr Mi Ci ui Y spoke of the Massacbuiet'Rbill, and recom mended that that bill be taken into consideration by the commute" to be appointed, and if any of its i r'visions should seem to be suitable to the condition of (bines which call'd for a chan/e ill the present law , that sueh piovmions should be embodied tu tho bill to be drawn n.with any necessary amendments. Mr Ornvit* recommended that banking institutions be included in the 0| orations of any law to bo drawn up. 1 I tanks from tholr organisation, had the seods oi suspen sion in them, and whenever a commercial crisis occurred it was Inevitable that they suspend. And If, when th^y suspended, the accounts of tb 'so banks are to bo wound uu and put Into a state of liquidation, it will bo seen at ouce that all the deposited money, all the money in banks, and all the money umbarke-l in hea^y commercial trans actions, are tied up, itt fact absolutely wiped out of exist ence It would be vorv injudicious to include banks in a stato of liquidation. He hoped tho committee would g .urd against this fatal error. This qui stlon of the banks being included in tho operations of a b nlcrupt law had long been advocated by the press and by a formor I*resi dent of the lulled Stales?lie believed tho late President Dcchanau. . _ . . Mr J. A. ITrow* Ri>oke m favor of some of tho clauses of the Massachusetts bill. On the motion of Mr. Ia*n*KT, a Committee of Eleven was appointed, to whom was entrusted tho duty or pro curing le^al aid in drafting a bill to carry out tho wishes and objects of tho meeting. Tho following gontlemou were tamed as the committee:?W. 0. Lambert, Scth B. Hunt, A. It. Wotrooro, <>. W. Lane, Ed. G. JaflVey. N. Sullivan, George OpdyUo, A. C. Richardson, J. McKillop, 0. P. F. Grant and lioya! Phelps. Subscriptlens were uken for the purpose of meeting tho expense to bo in curred by tho committee, and fulfilment of the duty im posed upon them of getting a bill draftod. Mr. N. Sulli van, the Secretary of the mooting, was appointed Trea surer of the committco. Tli is concluded the business, and the meeting afl Journod.

Tlie hall was Oiled with a highly res luctabls, Intell .g nt and discriminating audience, compos^; of l?dl * and g'iutleincn, who evinced a deep Interest in the pro* ceedings. About half-past seven o'clock the President Introduced the Rev. l)r. Bkluiw*, who proceeded to deliver a lecture on tho United Slates fttnilary Commission, and ?ho im portance of its continuants. The doctor commenced by expressing the gratification he felt at tho recent cheering uows from the South, which, ho said, had m.ide every loyal heart beat with Joy, hope and confl lenco iu tb? national cause. Urietly explaining the causes whieh had called tho Sanitary Commission into existence, tlie shaker remarked that hygionic and sanitary regulations, though the most important, wero the least aliunde I to in civil and military communities. It was to seo to the sanitary condition of the sriny, with th? view to prev- ut imsti lence and disease, tlut the Commission went to work, withsomo very good re.su!Is c rtalnly. I! t very little merit was clalmod by tho Commission. Prcvi 'ence had blessod the couulry with an unusually he^'lhy s?ason, and it wbs remarked by competent judges Ilia, never, in the history of the world, had such a Urge army been got togcth>r an I kept together for so 1 ng a timo with such a small por centaeo of sickness. Tho valley of thvi I'otomac-was never known to be so froo from malaria. How m cli of this fre-'dom from dis easo was due to the skill of th'1 s rgeon, the intelligence af the sol 'ier, or Iho operations of the Sanitary Con.mifl sioti, would be known at a ftrtoro perio l. i oeernrnent liad done all in its power, but jnvernmeut could not do everything,and therefore the Commission uu !ovt'? k to supi>ly all tho dileteneies m tlu> hospitalH?to clo he soldiers whoso gar mo: its might be destroyi d on the bat lie field or worn out from sheer uso. 11 would not do always to wait for the slow relief of government, which was fearfully oviTworked and conl-1 not re t! y meet witi its engagements.

Kwicit i'ji'owod Dr. p.yiuws, with a most Interesting discourse on the "Mora' Iriiueure of -unitary govoriimout,'' alluding to Ihe evils of had legislation, or rather the want of f( > t iogi! lati-.n, assliown in ;he inat tention to th wants of Iho humbler cia? s by Ihe legis lators at Albany. Reform was needed at th ? b.Viot boxes, he said, and all i.-ood men should rise tip in their airetiglh and put down tho corruption of podtic. Drs. J. H.
