Santo Domingo, Past, Pbbist αιπ> Fc tubk with a Glance at Haïti, by Sam uel Hasard. Harper & Bros. New York, publishers ; pp. 512. Santo Domingo standing as an outport to this continent and possessing a history replete with tragic events, and the arena of strifes in which every European maritime nation ha· been engaged, is yet comparatively unknown in this country so far as its importance and >vevut\«a Mv wuouavtvu· IT UVU (lUC \{UCI· tion of its annexation to this country was first agitated, the general reader sought in Tain for books that could afford information re specting the extent, population, productions and capacities of the island. Scattered about in various languages could be found accounts of the attempts of Spain, France, England and other powers to plant themselves «poo the soil of San Dominço, bat there was little beyond their respective records of rapin*. In view of this lack of correct information Mr. Hazard,who has given the public "Cuba with Feu and Pencil", set himself to the difficult task of preparing a useful book about San Domingo. For this purpose he went to the Island before the visit of the United States Commissioners and joining them on their ar rival, he visited all parts of the territory and taking sufficient time, has linked the history of the country with the fullest info/mat ion on all topics of general interest. The book Is finely written and has copions maps and 11. lustrations. It is an exceedingly entertain ing and instructive book and will find a place in every complete library as a book of great vaiuo. Tdbitino Points in Lif*.—By Frederick Arnold. Under the caption of "turning points in life" the Rev. Frederick Arnold gives In a se ries of discourses, his views on education, matrimony, the choice of a profession, and other epochs of a man's life-history which are commonly the shaping of his fortune. After the consideration of turning points in individual, he goes on to treat of turning points in national history, instancing as such, decisive battles and great constitutional changes. The papers which make up the volume, are strung on a slight connective thread, and are not necessarily to be connec tive^ read. They are written in a style of singularly pure English, and while contain ing nothing new or profound, present well established truths in an attractive and pleas ing style, very different from the namby pambyism which the title suggests.

There is a vigor and richness in the "Wishing-Cap Papers," mingled with much knowledge of the world, and of Lon don in particular—keensighted though very tolerant comment up >n social topics, and a genuine, sweet, natural humor. The ele gance and force ot the author's style, and the very minute, distinct and graphic man ner in which he presents to the reader's mind the scenes that ha describes, cannot rail of general appreciation ; and countless and nameless felicities of thought and wording are everywhere noticeable.

It is a trite remark that there Is no duller reading than a collection of Joke·; to this we udd—there is nothing In lit erature more uncomp omisingly sad, more adapted to reconcile the ieader to leaving a world in which it was printed — than a volume like the one before us. It Is dreary to the last degree to read a book, pro fessedly funny, in which there is nothing at all laughable, except the obvious bat wholly unintentional comicality of its utter failure to be what it pronosed. It is, however, very remarkable that in 360 pages tliere should be so little to suggest a smile—and we congratu late the author on its total immunity from everything which might detract from the sol enmity of any occasion. Mrs. Partington Is a modernized and vulgarized imitation ot Mrs. Malaprop, to whom the original "de rangement of epitaphs" is due. Although the less unrefined of these paragraphs might do well enough as an occasional newspaper squib, we really see no necessity for Inflict ing upon the public a volume of this sort. It is a collection of futile commonplaces, whose principal distinction is the total absence of anything like genuine wit or genial hu mor. Such painful puns, such successful aspirations toward total nothingness,—it is tarely the critic's lot to meet. Am for the "unambitious inkstand," we hold that an author has no right to use such, to i-sk indulgence on the score of careleasne··. We con.end that some worthy aim should everywhere be proposed, some good ambition steadily held in view. By this, we do not at ever form it may have, whether poem, novo!, or essay,—should embody «orne particular th< ory or convey some point of scientific information; but if an au'hor's in tention be to amuse merely, his entire pow ers for the time being should be devoted to writing something that shall afford refined and agreeable diversion, and be, in its own way, perfect. Anything short of a writer"» best intention and endeavor, is an insult to his public. We speak thus seriously—not be cause the volume before us calls for especial notice—but because so much false humor, stupidly and coarsely expressed is found is the publications of tbe present day. Not only are such writings harmfal in our own country, but they also cross the seas, and are there, to a certain degree, received as typical of American wit, whose accepted exponent» should be, and are here among cultivated re ders, such as the k«en, thoughtful and polished sentence? of Dr. Holmes, or the clear, elegant and brilliant words of Charles D.

The first chapter» are devoted to descriptions of Fisk Universi ty and similar Institutions, while the other· cor tain tbe personal history of some of the Jubilee singers, accompanied by their por traits ; and an account of the very successful concert tour by means of which $20,000 were realized for the building fund of their Uni versity. In the appendix to the volume will be found some of their songs, which are ex ceedingly quaint and unique. The words and music are well fitted to each other, and have a singular wildness and originality. Musicians will observe that In these song· the fourth and seventh degree· of the seal· are omitted ; as is also the case in Scottish music and in some of the modes of the an cient Greeks. This fact seems a suggestive one; and how fa/ our present system of tonality is removed from the purely natural and uncultivated is a matter in which music al scientists may find room for investiga tion.
