NOTICES OF THE PRESS. Whilst as a handbook it affords ample directions for those who require to make the most of the time at their disposal during a visit to the Principality, it is not wanting in historical incidents, which tend so much to render a guide-book an agreeable companion. -Liverpool Mercury. For tourists in Wales the best and most complete guide we know of is On and Off the Cambrian. As the preface indicates, the endeavour on the part of the writer has been to give tourists on' the Cambrian railways some- thing to talk about at every station they pass, and where they go off' to point out to them the chief attractions to be found." We think the effort is perfectly successful.— Wellington Journal. The work, in our estimation, is far in advance of the generality of guide-books which are ordinarily confined to general, and too often vague, descriptions of the localities through which they pass, but here much that is interest- ing beyond the mere description is introduced, which will supply hours of good reading at the fireside. Mr Askew Roberts has done good service to the cause of Welsh literature by raking amongst the dusty records of Welsh history, and bringing to light much that it is important for Englishmen, and even Welshmen, to know.—Newtown Express. The book is not merely a directory of sights to be seen, but a repertory of anecdotes' which will be welcome to the tourist at those odd times when a quarter of an hour's reading is an agreeable change. -Chester Chronicle. In the book Mr Askew Roberts gives some excellent descriptions of the principal spots, historic and otherwise, bordering upon the several Cambrian lines and an occa- sional piece of gossip, judiciously thrown in, relieves the chapters of anything like dulness.—North Wales Chronicle.

Mr Spurgeon in his preface says :— In John Ploughman's Talk" I have tried to talk for plough- men and common people. Hence refined taste and dainty words have been discarded for strong old proverbial expressions and homely phrases. I have aimed my blows at the vices of the many, and tried to inculcate those moral virtues without which men are degraded and miserable. Much that needs be said to the toiling masses would not suit well the pulpit and the Sabbath; these lowly pases may teach thrift and industry all the days of the week, in the cottage and the workshop; and if some learn these lessons I shall not repent the adoption of the rustic style. Ploughman is a name I may justly claim. Every minister has put his hand to the plough: it is his business to break up the fallow ground, and cast in good seed. That I have written in a semi-humorous vein shall need no apology if thereby sound moral teaching wins a hearing from the million. There is no particular virtue in being seriously unreadab!e.-C. H.
