HINTS TO MOTHERS

ON THE MANAGEMENT OF THEIR HEALTH.

Ry Thomas Bull, M. D. 1 vol. 12mo. “The mere reading of our author's book will do more good in the way of en. couraging the fearful and banishing nervous anxiety, than a whole conclave of the Wisest and most sanguine matrons that society can any where bring together.”(Monthly Review.]

THE BOOK WITHOUT A NAME.

By Lady Morgan, and Sir Charles Morgan.

2 vols. 12mo. The respective manners of the two writers have been long and familiarly known to the public; the light and piquant style in which Sir Charles embodies curious thoughts and valuable truths that are not to be disguised or depreciated by the motley and the more sober and concentrated tone of sarcasm which the Lady employs in the enforcement of kindred morals. The minds of the writers are perfectly wedded—their sentiments in complete harmony; and the variety of style communicated by the alternation of their papers, gives its own charm to these very agreeable volumes.

FRANCE;
ITS KING, COURT, AND GOVERNMENT.

2. THE BIRTH-DAY AND OTHER POEMS. “ This little poem contains the first true poetry we have met for many a day, not only showing a poetical power in the author, but developing it. Caroline Bowles is not a mere versifier, who shadows forth some dim common-place thought, or some indistinct generalization of an image, in empty words and sounding strain.

She looks round upon nature and life with an eye which nature bestows only up. on a poet' She separates the es ential characteristics of things from their material concomitants; extracting an intellectual beauty from the plainest, investing the homeliest with attraction, and exciting an interest in the most simple occurrences of domestic life, by appealing to those deep-rooted sympathies which are co-exton. sive at least with the youthful experience of a civilized people. '-[Spectator.]

They come to us charged with memories of the hearth round which we have drawn of a win. ter'y night ; or of the garden filled with fruits and flowers, where we have played many a sunny morning, step and heart as light as the wind that lifteth our hair." -[Literary Gazette.]

"Passages full of pure eloquence, and throughout marked by a chaste morality and deep feeling, as exquisitely expressed as they are creditable to the genius of Miss Bowles.”—(Atle s.]
