Стр. 339 - TRAITS OF AMERICAN HUMOUR. EDITED BY the Author of " SAM SLICK." 3 vols. post 8vo. 31s. 6d. " No man has done more than the facetious Judge Haliburton, through the mouth of the Inimitable ' Sam,' to make the old parent country recognize and appreciate her queer transatlantic progeny.
Стр. 337 - Cross' had already made for himself. The early history of the ' Merchant Prince' introduces the reader to the condition of Spain under the inquisition -, the portraitures of Scottish life which occupy a prominent place in the narrative, are full of spirit ; the scenes in America exhibit the state of the natives of the New World at that period ; the daring...

Стр. 339 - The work embraces the most varied topics, — political parties, religious eccentricities, the flights of literature, and the absurdities of pretenders to learning, all come in for their share of satire ; while...
Стр. 335 - This interesting work contains by far the most complete, the most enlightened, and the most reliable amount of what has been hitherto almost the terra incognita of European Turkey, and supplies the reader with abundance of entertainment as well as instruction.
Стр. 338 - Haliburton places before us. fairly and impartially, the history of English rule in America. The book is not only a boon to the historic student, it is also filled with reflections such as may well engage the attention of the legislating statesman.

Стр. 335 - These important volumes appear at an opportune moment, as they describe some of those countries to which public attention is now more particularly directed: Turkey, Greece, Hungary, and Austria. The author has given us a most interesting picture of the Turkish Empire, its weaknesses, and the...
Стр. 335 - An excellent and admirable work. Mr. Spencer is a very able writer, a shrewd, experienced and philosophical observer, an eminently thinking and yet practical man. His work forms the most valuable addition that our literature has lately received. He sets forth to inquire and learn ; he returns to inform and suggest ; and information most valuable and interesting has he here bestowed upon us.
Стр. 334 - ESQ., LATE ATTACHED TO THE CONSULAR SERVICE IN SYRIA, Second Edition, 2 vols. with Illustrations, 21s. " A very agreeable book. Mr. Neale is evidently Quite familiar with the East, and writes in a lively, shrewd, and good-humoured manner. A great deal of information is to be found in his pages.
Стр. 338 - We conceive this work to be by far the most valuable and important Judge Haliburton has ever written. The exhaustless fund of humour — quiet, yet rich and racy, and at the same time overflowing with the milk of human kindness — which his writings display on one hand, and the wonderful knowledge of man's character, in all its countless varieties, which they exhibit on the other, have insured for them a high, and honourable, and enduring station in English literature. It would be difficult, if...
