DAVIS'S RUINED CITIES OF AFRICA.

VISITS TO THE RUINED CITIES

OF ANCIENT

NUMIDIA AND CAKTHAGINIA.

WITH NOTICES OF ARAB LIFE.
By NATHAN DAVIS, F.R.G.S.

• No region on the face of the earth saddens tho mind with such melancholy reflections as those which occur to us while wo contemplate the southern shores of tho Mediterranean. From the earliest times they were noted for their fertility. Cartluige at the giimmit of her greatness bound tho Homans by a treaty not to navigato to tho south of tho Hcriuamn l'roinoutory (Cape lion), that they might not be tempted to possess themselves of tho rich harvests and luxuriant fruits which covered tho fields in the province of liyiacium; and in later years North Africa was the granary and orchard of all opposite Europe, from Homo to Constantinople. Then fair cities arose, which were the seats of commerce, wealth, civilization, and learning. The notorious contrast presented in after times by the condition of these once flourishing districts has been tho work of religious fanaticism. To exhibit somo monuments of this devastation is tho purpose of tho volume now before us. The author had previously explored the wreck of Carthage, where his discoveries encouraged him to revisit the country and survey tho more widely distributed relics of its bygone prosperity. Mr. Davis has furnished a valuable addition to our libraries.'—Morning I'ost.

'Mr. Davis appears to have been excellently suited for tho duty of restoring

to the memory of men these forgotten places of habitation. He was a, keen and accurate oliserver, of an enthusiastic temperament, and withal iudefaiigably persistent in pursuit of his object. He has identified the ancient Tucca Tcrebenthina with the modem Mokthar, Casa Nigra with Hydra, Scillitana Colonia with Cnssarcen, and Suffitula with Sbaitla. These aro all figured and illustrated, and serve to convey a good idea, if not of the ancient grandeur of these places, of the desolation that now broods over them. Besides theso our author explored a vast number of sites known and unknown, and discovered many fragments and iiiscrii>tions which have a high value to the historian.'—Daily Kent.

'Mr. Davis, in his explorations of the past, is content to investigate a moderately remote antiquity, to visit the ruins of cities famous in indisputable chronicle, and to decipher inscriptions written in the familiar language of our school days. In traversing the classical region renowned for the campaign of Julius C.rsar and the struggle of Jugurtha, Mr. Davis has been preceded by Dr. Shaw, the enterprising traveller Bruce, and Sir Grcnville Temple. His achievements, however, have been far more considerable than theirs. Mr. Davis's book will, we think, amuse as well as instruct.'—Westminster favmc.

'This is the second instalment of this rery attractive and valuable work, which may, indeed, I* said to be by far the best guide-Wx >k to our Cathedrals. The engraving are of the very highest class. It is, in fact, a national work, as well as a Church work, and it is worthy of our Church and nation.'—Eng. Churchman.

'AVc are more than ever convinced of the excellence, the truth, and the reliableness of these volumes. The descriptions are excellent; and the engravings all that can be desired. The present volume treats of Oxford, Peterborough, Norwich, Ely, and Lincoln. The first Cathedral described is Oxford, and is illustrated by no less than seventeen engraved plates, besides seven

worked into the text. Peterborough comes next, and is illustrated by tec plates; then follows Norwich, with thirteen plates and two woodcuts; and Ely, with fifteen plates and three test engravings. Lincoln follows, ami this superb Cathedral is illustrated by no less than twenty-two plates, in addition to four worked in the letterpress. It would be difficult to find any work in which the author has so carefully ami successfully condensed information as Mr. King lias done. He has succeeded in giving a thorough and reliable history of each Cathedral, a scrupulously accurate and faithful description of each edifice,and a chronological narrative of the Bishops of each See.'—litU'juary.

'It is curious that, although the Gothic revival iu England has created a literature alike remarkable in quality and quantity, and already spread over a long series of years, yet one work, which it might have been supposed would be among the first offshoots, has up to this year remained unatteiupted. The manuals, histories, descriptions, essays, and so forth, of and upon me

diaeval architecture, are innumerable, and yet a systematic portable account of all the English Cathedrals, compiled in the terms of modern architectural science, remained a desideratum. Mr. Murray deserves the thanks of the Public for having undertaken this work. It is full of very valuable information, architectural, archaeological, historical, and artistic'—Saturday Review.

TRACTS FOR THE CHRISTIAN SEASONS:

BEING HEADINGS FOR EVERY SUNDAY AND HOLIDAY IN THE YEAR. THIRD SERIES.

CONDUCTED BY THE

REV. JAMES RUSSELL WOODFORD, M.A.,

VICAR OP KEMFSFORD, GLOUCESTERSHIRE.

THE first and second series of ' Tracts for the Christian Seasons' were issued in the years 1850, 1851, under the superintendence of the late Bishop Armstrong; and the Publishers believe that the present is a time which offers scope and material for a similar work. It is therefore proposed to issue a Third Series of 'Tracts for the Christian Seasons;' the first part to appear on November 1,18C3.

The aim of the Tracts will be to furnish matter for private reading which may help to sustain the tone of thought and feeling suggested by the public Services of the Church. In general character the New Scries will resemble its predecessors, —avoiding controversy and seeking to carry out upon all subjects the grave and chastened teaching of the Church of England.

The New Series will, however, possess one distinguishing characteristic. Since the issue of the former Tracts, public attention lias been especially fixed upon the Old Testament; and the question 'How that portion of Holy Scripture may be read with comfort and profit by plain people? becomes increasingly prominent. In order to meet this requirement of the times, the subjects of the New Series of Tracts will be taken chiefly from the Rooks of the Old Testament, and an endeavour will be made by careful and reverent exposition to draw out the doctrinal and moral teaching involved in the various narratives, which renders them, amidst all changes of time aud place, still profitable for instruction in righteousness. N.B. The Series will be completed in twelve, or at most thirteen numbers, and tlte price of'each part will be kept as nearly as possible to One Shilling.
