RECENT PUBLICATIONS. Wo have received from Messrs C'ASSELL,PHTTEH, GALriNandCo. as fine an assortment of maga- zines a.s usual. T!ie "Art Magazine,"an un- periodical of its kind, contains a very fine frontispiece by Mr Munkacsy, called The Last interesting article on the "Career and Works of Flaxman." The "International Portrait (Gal- lery contains a portrait and life of the eminent American writer, 0. Wcudc]! Hoimes. Old and New London begins this month its third volume, which will principally treat of the West End. We mobt heartily recommend it to aU. The "History of Protestanti-'m has reached the accession of William III. to the English throne. "Cassell's Family Magazine" is very interesting this month. There are, among others, good ai-ticles on "The Comet of 1381," by J. Munro, F.R.S., and "Evening Colleges for Women," by M. Grog'tn. There are some very good tales also. Little Folks" is as interesting as usual for boys and girls. It contains this month the usual quantity of tales and instructive articles. Cas- sell's Popular Educator" Is too well known to needa special recommendation. It has readied ita 10th part. "Cassell's Technical Educator" has come toanend. Wemost heartily advisca.11 who can to obtain the four volumes of which it consists. The "Practical Dictionary of 1Iech:tnics an interesting account of the Victory Printing and Folding Machine. "Cassell's Cookery" has reached its ,N (I 10th part. The "New Testament Commentary," by Bishop Ellicott, D.D., has nearly reached the end of St. John. The "Child's Life of Christ" contains very fine engra ,-iug' of before Herod." WARD, LOCK, and Co. have not been behind- hand this month. The Worthies of the World contains lives of Robert Bruce, Socrates, Gusta- vus Adolphus, and John Knox. The article on "Robert Bruce"is particularly interesting. The "Universal Instructor" has attained a good re- putation for its store of learning. In the series on "Astronomy"this month there is a very ablv- writtcn article on "The Moon." "Beeton's Gre,'t Book of Poetry is a valuable scries. It has reached the poet, Thomson, and contains two very good engravings m this number. Beeton's Illustrated Encyclopedia" has reached its 23rd part. It is a very useful series. The Home Book" is full of home amusements of all kinds for leisure hours. Cl&rke's Commentary of the Bible contains in this, its nfth part, the bcgin- ningof Deuteronomy. The-'Family Altar," a most useful series, has :¡Jso reached its nfth part. Sylvia's Home Jom'na.1" is very rich in fashion pic.tes this number, besides light and pleasant reading. The llth part of the "Farm Book" is well worthy of its predecessors. From the RELiGloc.s TRACT SOCIETY (56, Pater- noster-row) we have Leisure Hour," which will bo particularly interesting this time on account of its article on the British Association at York," containing an account of its origin. Besides tins there are very good articl&s on York and its Historical Associations," and on "Mr Speaker; the "Boy's Own Paper," in which a serie;; of Cricket Homilies" is begun by F. Gale; the "Girl's Own Paper, "which is as interesting and instructive to girls as usual; the "Sunday at Home," which contains amor.g others n, very good article on "York and its Religious Associa- tions;FricndIy Greeting's,"which is full of in- teresting' and instructive reading and the Tract Magazine," a very useful little magazine for Churchvisitations. THE DAY OF REST'' (Strahau and Company, 24, Paternoster-row), still sustains its character as a. useful aud cnterta.ining magazine. The series, "Twenty years of a Publisher's Life," contains recollections of F. R. Havergal and Mr? Wil- !ia;n;? which ?rohio;tnt:i'ng. There :e several new tales also. Goon WORDS" (Isbister aud Co., 56, Ludgate UiII, E.G.), has two most useful articles this mouth, on Dean Stanley," with a very good por- trait, and the ether on Electricity, the Force of the Future," by J. A. Bower. It is full of good articles and amusing reading. BLACxwoon' MAGAZINE" (W. BLtckwood ,I Sons, 37. Paternoster-row), is very interesting this month. The "Private Secretary" finishes, but there is a, very good article on Eleetra'' which goes v. ry deeply into the subject. We are sorry to see, however, th:it the article on"The Land Bill in the Lords,"treats of the subject very unfairly, and lJlngs charge,, agaimt the Liberals, without attempting to prove them. MKMOIRS OF Sm WALT.*I.' Lt SCOTT," by J. G. Lockhart (Cha,ndoa Classics, F. Warno and Co., Bedford-street, Strand). It is often said, and with much truth, th:.t SIr W alter Scott's life was as much a, romance as any of his immortal novels. We believe that we can safely assert that no author ha,s ever lived whose memoirs can be read with as real interest M his. Page after page of his brilliant career seems to succeed more and more in enchanting the reader, nnd impressing him with the real greatness of the subject. ? Accordingly there h.tvs been many lives of Scott issued to the world,but none are so com- plete, or have been so much admired, as that of Lockhart. Being Scott's son-in-law, he was placed in a better position than any other writer could be. Me was intimately acquainted with his subject, und had all his letters and personal writings; of which he has made a very good u.-e. He has presented to the v.'orld a book which can- not fail to make its way wherever it goes. It is interspersed from beginning to end with charac- teristic anecdotes and pleasant recollections, which never fail to amuse or interest the reader. The new edition lJBfnre our notice is, of course, in an abridged form. The first edition consisted of seven large volumes, and consequently beyond the roach of many. Nothing, however, of real interest has been left out, and we can well recom- mend it to all as one of the mo:-t interesting books they can get. Itisinapleasingform, andwell worthy of the preceding' volumes of the Chandos Classics.
