"A Collection of the most popular dialect stories, from the pen of John Hartley, author of 'Yorkshire Ditties, Seets i' Lundun,' &c.—Some of these racy sketches having been for many years out of print, the publishers have done well in issuing them in the present handy and, indeed, handsome form, prefaced with a portrait of the author-a handsome, intellectual face, with the lips apparently in the act of whistling or humming a favourite air. The tales and poems, some forty in number, are varied in interest, but exceedingly characteristic, pathos and merriment im. partially mingling with rustic simplicity and Yorkshire cleverness. The dialect, by no means difficult to read, is certainly less uncouth in southern eyes than the rich Doric of Edinburgh and the Scottish Lowlands."— Bookseller.

Stories

MRS. M. J. HOLMES' WORKS. 28. each. EDNA BROWNING; or, the Leighton Homestead.

“Mrs. Holmes' stories are all of a domestic character, and are of a healthy and abiding nature. Almost any new book which her publishers might choose to announce from her pen would get an immediate and general reading. The interest in her tales

begin at once, and is maintained to the close. Her sentiments are so sound, her syropathies so warm and ready, and her knowledge of manners, character, and the varied incidents of ordinary life is so thorough, that she would find it difficult to write any other than an excellent tale if she were to try it."

Boston Banner. EDITH LYLE.

"This is another gem from the pen of Mrs. Holmes, she is certainly one of the best American Writers, there is a charm and healthy tone about her works that is rarely to be found in our modern writers." NINA; or Darkness and Daylight. DORA FREEMAN; or West Lawn. FORREST HOUSE. DAISY THORNTON and JESSIE GRAHAM.

“Mrs. Holmes is a peculiarly pleasant and fascinating writer. Her books are always entertain. ing, and she has the rare faculty of enlisting the sympathy and affections of her readers, and of holding their attention to her pages with deep and absorbing interest.” MILLBANK: or Roger Irving's Ward. THE CAMERON PRIDE; or Purified by Suffering. THE STORY OF MILDRED; with the Starry Eyes and Nute

Brown Hair. "Mr. Holmes' stories are universally read. Her admirers are numberless. She is in many respects without a rival in the world of fiction. Her characters are always life-like, and she makes them talk and act like human beings, subject to the same emotions, swayed by the same motives which are common among men and women of every day existence. Mrs. Holmes is very happy to portraying domestio lite. Old and young pernse her stories with great delight, for she writes in s style that all can comprehend."-New York Weekly.
