The Mystery of Orcival by Emile Gaboriau. This is a novel from the French with a very intricate plot, The interest principally cen ters on the efforts of the Count de Tremerel, who ha3 murdered his wife,to prevent the de tection of the deed and oscape with the girl he loves and the preternatural astuteness so common in novels, of 'he detective who fin ally ferrets out the crime and the criminal. The count when detected is allowed to kill himself whereby he saves liis county much expense. The notary who i3 especially active in conducting the pursuit is in love with the girl with whom the count eiopes. And af ter the count takes himself out of the way ho marries her and thereby with due devotjon saves her from the disgrace incident upon her unfortunate situation. Published by J. R. Osgood & Co., and for sale by Bailey k Noyes. Tbe Widow Ltronss by Eoiile Gaborlaa Like the “Mystery of Orcival” by the same author the story opens with a murder and is mostly concerned with the detection of the criminal. An omnicient detective and an ac tive judge of inquiry are so misled by coinci dences that an innocent man ;s in great dan ger. The book is a very good picture of the French system of investigation in criminal cases. Published by J. R. Osgood & Co., and for sale by Bailey & Noyes. Pnlniflfo hv Hrer lion Stowe. This attractive volume is made up of letters written from Florida, in Mrs Stowe's own fresh, unaffected aud vigorous style. It abounds in vivid descriptions, touches of gen uine humor, and warmhearted sympathy with nature and mankind. The peculiarities of the colored people are, of course, described with the fidelity to nature that ha3 made "Uncle Tom's Cabin” famous forever; the glories of magnolia and orange bloom,the riv ers and trees of Florida arc depicted in vivid language; and in reply to many letters of in quiry in regard to the agricultural facilities, advantages of climate etc., in Florida, Mrs. Stowe has collected interesting facts and sta tistics which she presents to her readers, as the result of the careful experience of some of the settlers in that State. The book is tastefully printed illustrated and bound. Published by J. E. O3good & Co., Boston. For sale by Loring, Short & Harmon. Biography ol Mrs. JT U. Conant, Ihe World’s Medium of the Nineteenth Cen tury, with Prefatory Remarks by Her. Allen Pntman. This is a remarkable book, which can hard ly fail to meet with a welcome reception from the Spiritualists, especially; as its object is to give an idea of what spfrit mediumship is. In addition to the account of the peculiar exper iences and trials incident to the early life and development of this lady, messages purport ing to come from departed human spirits, im provised poems, and invocations, or spirit prayers, are to be found on its pages. The originality of the subject matter of the book cannot tail to arrest the attention of the curl ous. A fine steel-plate portrait of Mrs. Co nant embellishes the volume. Cloth, 324 pages; price, $1.50. Published by William White & Co., 14 Han over street, Boston. Messrs. J. B. Ford <Jt Co-, New Tork, is sue in two neat, and substaitially bound volumes, the 7th and 8th series of sermons by Mr. Beecher comprising those delivered in the Plymouth pulpit during the year from September 1871 to September 1872. The prayers are also given that preceded and that - followed each discourse. Thus placing the reader yet more perfectly within the influence of the occasion. It seems too trite for the saying, that there , are few preachers of the present time who can bring truths home so sharply and so fully as can Mr. Beecher, not alone by force of eloquence, nor yet chiefly by powers of searching thought, though so largely pos sessed of both, but by a remarkable under standing of human nature, accompanied, or rather caused, by such entire sympathy with it, as gives to him myriad personali ties in one—he it a child when he would speak as a child and yet as a man can put away childish things. He knows sufferers by what he suffers—joyful souls by all that he enjoys—and so on through the range of hu man experience. We can hardly say less than this with these sermons before us and yet we are aware it is oniy needful to an nounce two more volumes by Mr. Beecher are to be had—so much “friend” for so little "mammon.” For sale by Hoyt, Fogg & Breed. Kendoa Chillingly; By B. L. Bnlwcr, Lord Lyttnn. Another novel by this distinguished author, written in his usual brilliaut and powerful style. To the reader who should follow the fortunes of its hero, as a narrative merely— the romance would possess no little interest; but in addition to the merit which of course belongs to it as a work of fictioo, it contains much of the clever and original theorizing upon social and political problems to which Lord Lytton devoted so much thought. “Xenelon Chillingly” is published by Har per Brothers, New York, and will he found for sale in this city at the bookstore ot Messrs. Loring, Short and Hannon. Aaeleat mad Mo lern. By Bey. Israel P.Wstm, B.

To the excellent and mi nute accounts of tlife edifices, gateways, eta, .of the Roly City, are added many eareftilly prepared illustrations and maps, making the volume very valuable as a guide to the trav eller, or as serving to render more clear and definite the knowledge of the student at home. Elliot, Blakeslec and Noyes; and Estes and Lauriat, Boston. Tha Tear. By B. C. Calcs worthy-ppl ij Lm & Shepard. Without aDy extravagant pretensions, our old townsman, I). C. Coles worthy, has come forth anew for the satisfaction of all who have been familiar with his pleasant writings for a whole generation. With characteristic verses for every month of the year, and for Christmas and the four seasons, you are invited to follow him into the woods and along the riverside and sea shore, to look up and rejoice with all your heart and all your strength, in the blue skies, the overshadowing tree-tops, the singing of birds and the rippling of waters. Can you re fuse? I, for one, cannot, although hall tongue-tied by his dedication, issued without ray knowledge or consent. Not that I object to the dedication itself, but I am a little afraid that what I am led to say, both of the author and of his writings, may be regarded as an illustration of the old proverb.“you tickle me and I’ll scratch you,” wc cuuti mm bwuoiuci" ate scratches if nothing worse. Many of these poems—we may as well call them poems, for with all their simplicity and homeliness at times, they are illuminated with occasional flashes of genuine poetry, and are absolutely golden, for their truthfulness and familiar teachings. Take a samplo or two in proof. “The trees aro flinging on the air Their wealth of rich perfume: It is their daily grateful prayer From speechless lips of bloom.” Apple blossoms of course. But agaiu: “The bee is wandering from his fold To revel with the flowers And dandelions crowned with gold Nod to the sunny hours.

The tendei mimosa at play p. 25’’. Here, to make out the cadence you are obliged to say, instead of mi-mo-so, mi-mo-sa. or mim osa. which, of course, would be unforgivable in anybody.

Dupuy, author of the “The Myste rious Guest” etc., etc. Both of these novels are by well-known and popular writers; and admirers of the sensational will find in these rolumes plenty of thrilling incident, and itartling denouement, which will secure to he books a large sale among that class of readers.
