TRAVELS ON HORSEBACK IN MANTCHU TARTARY.
Being a Summer's Ride berond the GREAT WALL of China. By GEORGE FLEMING,
Military Train. Royal 8vo. With Map and 50 Illustrations, Mr. Fleming's narrative is a most charming one. He has an untrodden region to tell of, and be botographs it and its people and their ways. Life-like descriptions are interspersed with personal anecdotes, local legends, au: stories of adventure, some of them revealing no common artistic power.- Spectator.
Mr. Fleming's work is a most agreeable and valuable addition to our stock of standard books of travel and adventure. The work is unquestionably one of the freshest, the most amusing, and the most curious of that Chinese series, which opportunity and enterprise are now giving to the world. Dublin Unit. Mag. A LADY'S VISIT TO MANILLA AND JAPAN. By
ANNA D'A. 1 vol., with Illustrations. 14s.
This book is written in a lively, agreeable, natural style, and we cordially recommend it as containing a fund of varied information connected with the Far East, not to be found recorded in so agreeable a manner in any other volume with which we are acquainted' - Press.
The author has given a picturesque and animated account of ber voyages, and of the most notewortby objects which presented themselves in the course of her progress from Singapore to China, and thence to Manilla and Japan.'-Post. A WINTER IN UPPER AND LOWER EGYPT. By
G. A. HOSKINS, Esq., F.R.G.S., &c. 8vo., with Illustrations. 158. • As a contribution to geography Mr. Hoskins's work is a most excellent one. In his arcbæological researches he is as entertaining a guide as Belzoni himself, and the ancient mythology of the country is treated by him with a breadth and scope of intellect worthy of a Bunsen ; whilst his description of tbe journey up the Nile is as charming as Moore's account of the voyage of the Epicurean upon the same historic stream.'-- Observer.
To travelers recommended to explore the Nile in search or health this volume will be invaluable. It abonds with excellent practical advice and instruction-an advantage which renders it superior to all other Egyptian works of travel we have met with.' --Sun. LORD WILLIAM LENNOX'S FIFTY YEARS' BIOGRA
PHICAL REMINISCENCES. 2 vols. 8vo. 285. • To the majority of readers the most interesting part of these two volumes of pleasant, amusing, and goodnatured gossip, will be that wlich refers to Lord William Lennox's life as attaché and alde-de-camp to the Duke of Wellington. Few men have ever had such opportunities of seeing the Great Duke under every sort of circumstance as Lord William, and the picture he gives is a very pleasant one.'--Sat. Review. THE WANDERER IN WESTERN FRANCE. By G. T.
LOWTH, Esq. Illustrated by the Hon. ELIOT YORKE, M.P. 8vo. 15s. • Mr. Lowth reminds us agreeably of Washington Irving.'-Athenarum. • If Mr. Lowth's conversation is only balf as good as his book, he must be a very charming acquaintance. The art of gossiping in his style, never wearying the listener, yet perpetually conveying to him valuable information, is a very rare one, and he possesses it in perfection. No one will quit his volume without feeling that he understands Brittany and La Vendée.'--Spectator. DR. MOUAT'S ADVENTURES AND RESEARCHES
AMONG THE ANDAMAN ISLANDERS. 8vo., with Map and Illustrations. 16s. Dr. Monat's book, whilst forming a most important and valuable contribution to ethnology, will be real with interest by the general reader.'-Atheneum.
• Dr. Mouat's voluime will be welcome to very many by reason of the strange information with which it abounds. It is both amusing and instructive.'--Examiner. THE LIFE OF THE REV. EDWARD IRVING. Illus
trated by his JOURNAL AND CORRESPONDENCE. By MRS. OLIPHANT. SECOND EDITION. 2 vols. 8vo. With Portrait.
Mrs. Oliphant's “Life of Irving" supplies a long-felt desideratum. It is copious, earnest, and eloquent. Irving as a man and as a pastor is not only fully sketched, but exhibited with many broad, powerful, and life-like touches, which leave a strong impression,'- Edinburgh Review. GREECE and the GREEKS. By FREDRIKA BREMER. Translated by MARY HOWITT. 2 vols. 215.
ALSO, IN PREPARATION. COURT AND SOCIETY FROM ELIZABETH TO ANNE,
Illustrated from the l'apers at Kimbolion. By the DUKE of MANCHESTER. 2 vols.

QUEEN MAB. By JULIA KAVANAGH, Author of
• Nathalie,' • Adele,' &c. 3 vols. GOOD SOCIETY. By MRS. GREY. Author of 'The Gam.
bler's Wite,' &c, 3 vols. • "Good Society," in all its various phases, comes in for a complete anatomization at the hands of our author. That very many of the characters are sketched from life can admit of no doubt. The dialogue is lively, and the "interiors" are painted with a well-accustomed hand: whether the scene is lald in the marquis's mansion, the squire's hall, the country parsonage, the Romish chapel, or the lodging house in Belgravia. Altogether to our mind this surpasses any of the former works of the writer.'-iniled Service Magazine, Mrs. Grey writes well and with spirit.' - Morning Post. MARY LINDSAY.
