Heaven ? (1. Till the Resurrection. 2. For Ever and Ever.")
It is published by Gould & Lincoln, 59, Washington Street, Boston, whose descriptive advertisement we have copied above. We find in the volume many new pieces, and some familiar ones; and, from a hasty survey, would recommend it to the lovers of sacred poetry.
The Story of the Guard : a Chronicle of the War. By JESSIE BENTON FRÉMONT. Boston: Ticknor & Fields. 1863.
Frémont's body-guard performed almost the only great achievement which has been done by the Union Cavalry in the present war. Only 150 strong, they charged into Springfield, beat and scattered a body of 1,700 rebels, and held the town till the army of the Union arrived. In reward for this great exploit, they were disbanded and dismissed from the service by the influence of that hateful clique who were determined to ruin Gen. Frémont. His wife has written and published this work, the sale of which is to be for the benefit of the families of the members of the Guard who were killed, and who left nothing for their support; and for those of the Guard who are wounded or in want. The story is itself a useful and interesting contribution to the history of the time.
The Poet's Journal. By BAYARD TAYLOR. Boston: Ticknor & Fields. 1863.
A poet's journal ought always to be kept in poetry, and usually has been. Poets, says Goethe, confess in verse what they would never dare hint in prose.
“Niemand beichtet gern in Prosa,
In der Musen stillem Hain.” So did he himself; so did Mrs. Browning, in her “Sonnets from the Portuguese;" so did Shakspeare write an autobiography in his Sonnets; and so has Bayard Taylor done here. He does not rank with the first-class poets; but he is much above mediocrity. A Present Heaven. Addressed to a friend by the author of “The Patience of Hope.” Boston: Ticknor & Fields. 1863.
That heaven is here as well as elsewhere, now as well as hereafter, has often been said, and is known to every real Christian, but needs to be said often again.
Graver Thoughts of a Country Parson. By the author of the
“Recreations of a Country Parson,” and “Leisure Hours in Town." Boston: Ticknor & Fields. 1863.
“ Graver” than what ? Why, of course, graver than all his other thoughts, already published to an admiring world ; with which you, inquiring reader, ought to be acquainted, if not unknown yourself. We have here a volume of sermons, which may prove acceptable to those who admire the other writings of this author, whose vein runs so freely, that only a rustic can expect it will ever cease flowing. “Volvitur et volvetur, in omne volubilis ævum." The Black Man. His Antecedents, his Genius, and his Achieve. ments. By WILLIAM WELLS BROWN, author of “Clotelle,” &c. New York: Thomas Hamilton, 68, Beckman Street. Boston: R. F: Wallcut, 221, Washington Street. 1863.
William Wells Brown is well known as an able speaker and good writer. He is an escaped slave, born in Kentucky, and member of the Wickliffe Family ; one of whom is now doing his best to embarrass the Government by his course in Congress.
The present book gives the lives of a large number of persons (black or colored) who have distinguished themselves in the world. It contains a great deal of useful information. The Good Girl and True Woman. A Book for Girls. Elements
of Success, drawn from the Life of Mary Lyon and other similar characters. By WILLIAM M. THAYER. Boston: Gould & Lincoln, 59 Washington Street. 1863.
The title of the book sufficiently explains its purpose.

THE Executive Committee have thought it expedient to insert in this number of the “ Journal" a list of the Unitarian Ministers and Societies in the United States, together with a portion of the statistics which were formerly embodied in the “ Year-Book” published by the Association. In the preparation of these statistics, it has been the wish to include only those details which are likely to be of general interest. For this reason, the names and officers of most of the local associations of ministers of the various county Sunday-school societies, and of some other organizations, have been omitted ; and, with a few exceptions, no associations which have not a distinct religious aim, or which include among their officers and members persons of various denominations, have been inserted. In the former class are many philanthropic associations of great value, and in the latter are such bodies as the Massachusetts Bible Society and the Convention of Congregational Ministers ; all of which derive much of their support from members of the Unitarian body.
