2 vols. 8vo., 2nd edition, price 12s. A collection of elegant and pleasing essays, published at Calcutta.”—Note to a quotation from this work in Bulwer's “ Alice."

“We have read these volumes with delight. A work that does honour to the city of palaces.”_ Friend of India.

“ Some fair and just criticism, an extensive acquaintance with literature, and some very elegant poetry ; on the whole, showing the author to be a person of genius and taste cultivated after the best models.”-Gentleman's Magazine.

“We strongly recommend this second and enlarged edition. We can casily imagine how such writings as these, appearing from time to time in the Indian journals, must have gratified the English residents, since even here, in the midst of lions and new books, we run over the leaves with unmixed pleasure.”- Atlas.

“ His poetry derives from his unfeigned attachment to home a very touching beauty. Most persons who have been long absent from the place of their birth know how delicious is the feeling with which it is approached. Mr. Richardson describes this feeling with exquisite truth and tenderness....Whatever forms of nature challenge his preference, he views them all with a poetical eye, and paints them in his verses with vividness and fidelity. We should be glad to sec the poetry of these volumes detached from the prose, and sent into the world alone. It has sufficient character in it to depend on its own vitality; and we venture to predict that it will live.”-Sunday Times.

“ The essays afford some exquisite reading. We can, with perfect confidence, refer every man of literary taste to these volumes, which we consider an elegant and valuable contribution to the literature of our country."Indian News.

“The poems are largely impregnated with nature's best and holiest feelings. They are utterances of the writer's own heart, and they reach the hearts of his readers. They leave an impression which will not be casily or speedily effaced. The diction is in keeping with the sentiments. It is at once accurate and graceful. The same observation applies to the author's prosc.”-Observer.

LA U RA.

'Twas some years ago It may be thirty, forty, more or less, The carnival was at its height, and so

Were all kinds of buffoonery and dress; A certain lady went to see the show,

Her real name I know not, nor can guess, And so we'll call her Laura, if you please, Because it slips into my verse with ease.

She was not old, nor young, nor at the years

Which certain people call a “certain age,Which yet the most uncertain age appears,

Because I never heard, nor could engage A person yet by prayers, or bribes, or tears,

To name, define by speech, or write on page, The period meant precisely by that wordWhich surely is exceedingly absurd.

Laura was blooming still, had made the best

Of time, and time return'd the compliment, And treated her genteelly, so that, dress’d,

She looked extremely well where'er she went ; A pretty woman is a welcome guest,

And Laura's brow a frown had rarely bent ; Indeed she shone all smiles, and seemed to flatter Mankind with her black eyes for looking at her.
