Recent PabUeations. - * A new book by Mrs. Whitney is sure to be •very where warmly welcomed and eagerl read, and will exert a deep ai.d widely extend ed influence. Writing as she does, chiefly for voung girls; assisting (hem to solve the questions, great and small, that life is begin ning to offer them,—ehe sympath.zes sincere ly with them, translating often into words tbe half-formed thoughts and fancies of girl hood. Yet in this very trait, which so much endears her and brings her so near to many a thoughtful girl who reads her books—lies as it seems to us, tbe source of danger to her books’ best influence—the danger of self con scious, introverted analysis of thought and feeling. Stories, such m Mrs. Whitney writes, are by no means to be passed over with a brief, slight notice; they deserve, and should receive, sincere criticism; touching, among tbe many points to praise, upon the few to dispraise; and it is in no faultfinding spirit, but in entire recognition of the power of her books that we write. A peculiar use of language, strangely-concocted words, high toned slang—if such an expression be allow •W«—and an apparent affectation of simplici ty is at times noticeable in “Other Girls”, though in less degree than in some of tbe au thors former writings. We also protest in behalf of the heroes and heroines of Mrs. Whitney’s stories, against the names that she give* them—often in the style of Mis* Ceteless aid Master Good child of nursery lore, tor exam le “Cousin Del’ght” and “In crease Muchmore Argenter;” or else seem ingly selected for their utter unattraci 1 veness, —Asenath, Luclarion, Terenhappuch, among other*. And still more we object to the sed ulous search—“pious and paiLelhlle” iu good Cotton Mather’s quaiut phrase—for an obvi ous moral, or symbolical signification in every thing, to which Mrs. Whitney is so much addicted. There are, no doubt sermons iu stones — but still we decline to have stones thrown at us. It is, we think, a false taste in art that looks for too complex an intention in an object; that would reduce a fairy tale to an allegory, and tell the baby whose blue eyes stand wide with wonder, that the giants of bis favorite story were “Steam, my dear, and Electricity and above ah, ray dear, Perseverance;” or would find for children of a larger growth, mystical meaning and raison <fetre in the worldtamous statues whose “beauty is its own excuse for being” and standing by the restless ocean, or watching the red of the sunset, would remark as in duty bound "Such is life.” And now that we have said all that we have to say against Mrs. Whitney’s books, we come to the far more pleasant pait of our work—that of expressing our warm and sincere admira tion lor the sweet womanliness, tbe gracious charity, the truth and purity of her writings. They are such books as a mother will consid er it a privilege to place in the hands of her daughters, knowing that their influence will harmonize with and supplement her own. And we surely need not recommend the pres-' ent volume to tbe attention of tbe thousands of young people who have enfoyed the previ ous ones. “Other Girls” is a story of the life of some not situated above the need of working with their own hands; and some so cial problems a e carefully touched upon in particular that of the desirability aud houora bleness of domestic service as compared with some other occupations that seem more at tractive; although some of tbe writer’s idea* seem rather more suitable for a millennial menage than for tbe present. We hope and prophecy for “Other Girls,” an immense sale and popularity. The illustrations are very poor in design and execution, but in other re spects the volume is published in a style wor thy of Itself and its publishers, Messrs. J. R. Osgood A Co. Foi sale by Hall L.

This novel—by an author whose clear judgment, well-trained thought and brilliant, unaffected style have won for him a very en viable place among the writers ef tbe present time—more than fulfils the high expectations called forth by the announcement of its pub lication. It to one of the finest novels of the day; even surpassing in excellence the au thor’s former w< rk, “Lady Judith.” As a study of society itto admirably keen and graph ic, without cynicism; and as a work of fic tionit is refined, elevated and healthful in tone, with a well constructed and developed ploi, and Interest maintained from the first to the last page. Mr. McCarthy, among ms many valuable qualifications as a literateur, possesses that of impartial sympatby, so far as is justifiable, with the various aspects of his subject. la writing of America and its people—a task nos easy to an Englishman, to whom our country must often appear sui prising, exaggerated and audacious—Mr. McCarthy rec tgnizes the vigorous and successful traits of the younger country as well as the merits of the conserva tive traditionalism of the elder. In “A Fair Saxon” the interest turns largely upon Feni anism—and here again the writer di plays the same appreciation or each side of the question, and writes with no bitterness of feeline, while his style loses nothing of its ac customed clearness and force. The dramatis persona of this fine nov.l are drawn with skill, delicacy and power! Jennie Aspar it a charming sketch of a blight, pure cod passionate woman; Tyrone it brave, generous and hone table; and the I minor characters are depicted with todividu- I ality and variety.

To tut* ocean, in its many moods; to rocky headlands, stretches of gray sandbanks and weedy pools; to thoughts, imaginings beyond thoughts, besiJe the sea—Mrs. Celia Thaxter has ever peculiarly devoted her vivid, graceful and poetic pen. A more exquisite guide book than this,to the Isle of Shoals, could not be imagined. The quaint touches, naive an., humorous, with which Mrs. Thaxter de scribes the flsberfolk ot the islaids; the glow and warmth of her words as she tells os of the pink flush of the sea-shell or the “long, pa>, ivory buds” of the wild morning-glory clinging to the rocks; or pictures to us the brown sails that flit to and fro silently— everywhere her poetic sympathy with the ocean renders her a sibyl who interprets the hollow voice of its oracle. “Among the Isle of Shoals” Is a charming little volume, of convenient size for tks pocket; with carefully executed engravings and tinted, red-edged paper.

The Washington gambling.houses have nev er beeu sup.<orb*d to any considerable extent by the resident population. Members of Con gress, particularly from the South, South west and West, were the largest contributors to the incomes of the spo ting men. Con tractors and India tracers were generally bold and sometimes desperate players. Mem ber* of the House fiequentlv staked their mileage and per diem at the taro-table, and they played all -orts of round games, “short cards,” as they were called, in the club rooms Probably the air ount risked would not con-.titute what is termed “high pl..y” in these days, but the losses of t ese men of limited means were often sufficient to keep them impoverished and embarrassed during their entire Congressional service. Some men played for excitement chiefly, not caring much whether t iey won or lost. Tbad deus Stevens was one of this description He was tike Fox, who described winning at haz ard as the greatest pleasure in life, and losing at the same game as the next greatest. Ste vens lost and won with the same apparent indif fferonce.He played with consummate coolness, never lost bis temper, a ,d never increased the amount of his bet either to retneve his losses or more rapidly to increase bis win nings. His sarcastic remarks upon the dis composure of bis fellow-layers, who some times exclaimed with rage and profanity at their ill luck, were witty as ell as cutting. While they were eating and drinking with the voracity of cormorants, be never indulg ed in any thing more stimulating than a crack er and a sip of water. The contrast between his coolness and apparent apathy and the ea ger, fierce excitement of others sitting at the same table and engaged in the same pursuit was amazing. I have rarely seen a more pi.l able and painful exhibition than was often presented by the utfgovctned passions ot a gamester after a run ot ill-luck. To Mr. Stevens such displays ol' weakn- ss seemed to afford amusement rather than to excitt sym pathy or compassion. He was a hard, cyni cal mao, capable of acts of benevolence un der strung emotion, but gentleness or tender ness was not his ordinary mook. He threw off more good things in conversation without effort thau any man I ever saw, and his say ings were pointed with a degree of epigram matic torce tha' I never witnessed in spy oth er man.—An Old Stages, in Harper’e Magazine for June.

A Justice of the Peace in Vancouver, Washington Territory, received a letter re cently Ircm a distressed but candid young man, assing counsel in a domestic dilemma in which he was involved.

Signs of Death.—Dr. Hugo Magnus, as sistant physician to the hospital at Breslau, suggests that the tying of a tight ligature around one of the fingers will determine whether a person supposed to be derd is so in reality. If life he not extinct the extrem ity of the finger soon becomes red, the depth of the coloi increasing to dark red and ,lolet, while the skin above the ligature remains white. This is easily understood, as, if those be any circulation of the blood, the ligature prevents the return ot the venous blood, while the arteries still continue to convey it to (We capillaries.
