A MANUAL OF UNIVERSAL CHURCH HISTORY. By Rev. JOHN ALZOG, D.D., Professor of Theology at the University of Freiburg. Translated from the ninth enlarged and improved German edition, and edited and brought down to the present time, by Rev. F. J. Pabisch, D.D., President, and Rev. Thomas S. Byrne, Professor, of Mount St. Mary's of the West, Cincinnati. 3 vols. Vol. I. Early Church History. Vol. II. The Middle Ages. Vol. III. To the Present Time. 8vo. Cloth. (The volumes are sold separately.)

To the publishers we can not sufficiently express our obligations for the generous and able manner in which, regardless of expense, they have presented the History to the public.-Extract from the Preface to the Third Volume, by †J. B. Purcell, Archbishop of Cincinnati.

At last we have a history of the Church in English, and in such English as reflects infinite credit on the scholarship of the Rev. Thomas S. Byrne, just as the uncommon accuracy and number of references to standard German authors attest the vast learning of Dr. Pabisch. It is a scholarly performance, brought to a most successful issue by two devoted men, at the cost of how much toil and painstaking, scholars alone can tell. We thank the two reverend authors for a priceless boon. They have filled a void in English literature, and satisfied a want long and deeply felt. To the publishers, also, a just meed of praise is due. The style in which these volumes are issued, and the very beauty of the colored maps, so scrupulously prepared by Dr. Pabisch, will, we trust, be fully appreciated by the Protestant and Catholic public alike.-N. Y. Tablet.

We have to thank our American brethren in the faith for a most valuable addition to our libraries, and for a book which will be most useful as a book of reference to every English priest, as well as an indispensable manual for the student of ecclesiastical history.-London Tablet.

It has long occupied a high rank among histories in the leading universities of the world. On critical points, its authority is unimpeachable. We have no doubt the translation will be cordially welcomed, and be universally adopted in the Catholic colleges in the United States. Dr. Pabisch is eminently fitted by his great and varied learning for the difficult task he has assumed.-Catholic Telegraph.

One great charm of Alzog's work is the perfect and systematic arrangement. Every thing is in its place, and easily found. The book is enriched with an admirable table of contents. It is concise without being dry; and, from the mass of authorities cited, may easily be made the foundation for immense research.-Catholic Standard, London.

ANDRE. THE COW CHACE: An Heroic Poem in Three Cantos. Written at New York, 1780. By the late MAJOR ANDRE, with explanatory notes by the Editor. London. Printed for John Fielding, No. 23 PaterNoster Row, 1781. Reprinted from this rare quarto edition, with the Paper, 75 cents. Large paper, imp.

original preface, notes, etc. 8vo. 8vo. Paper.

The poem is a humorous description of the defeat of the "rebel generals, Wayne and Irving," and is a candid expression of the contempt and ridicule in which our brave Revolutionary fathers were held by their British foes. Of the poem itself we reproduce only the last stanza, which, if not pathetic, seems certainly to have been prophetic of the sad fate of the author:

"And now I've closed my epic strain, I tremble as I show it, Lest this same warrio-drover, Wayne, Should ever catch the poet." Additional interest is lent to the poem, from the fact that the above stanza was printed on the very day that Major Andre was taken prisoner.-Cincinnati Gazette.

BALLARD. INSECT LIVES, OR BORN IN PRISON. By Mrs. JULIA P. BALLARD. Illus. Sq. 12mo. Cloth. There are many young persons who are interested in butterflies and moths, but need instruction as to beginning-how to capture and how to prepare and preserve them. Also, how to obtain perfect insects by rearing the caterpillars that produce them. This little book gives reliable information on these points. It is pleasantly written, and fully and admirably illustrated.-W. H. Edwards, author of Butterflies of North


[ocr errors]

One of the very best children's books comes from Cincinnati-the admirable little study of "Insect Lives," by Mrs. Ballard. It is written with the most agreeable simplicity and good sense, which the young naturalist, a little oppressed with the weight and volume of adult scientific works, will gratefully appreciate. He will find in it ex

cellent suggestions for observation, and a due amount of well-founded information, enlivened by a delightful enthusiasm for his pursuit. No book could be more acceptable to a boy with a taste for entomology, and the love for nature which must grow with such a taste. The volume is abundantly illustrated with well-engraved studies of insects in their different stages of transformation; and it is to be as cordially praised for these as for the graceful, unaffected, and interesting quality of its literature.-Atlantic Monthly.

This attractive little book deserves commendation, from the fact that the authoress has evidently the zeal of a genuine naturalist, has studied insects in the field and closet, and describes what she has seen in a clear and admirable manner. The first

and best lesson in the study of insects is the rearing of a butterfly from the egg; one learns more of entomology in this than by any other method. This book will, we feel sure, induce boys, and, we hope, girls, to

gather caterpillars and rear butterflies, just for the fun of the thing, while, unconsciously, they will be learning valuable lessons in observing natural objects.-American Naturalist.

BENNER. PROPHECIES IN FUTURE UPS AND DOWNS IN PRICES. What Years to make Money on Pig-Iron, Hogs, Corn, and Provisions. By SAMUEL BENNER, an Ohio farmer. Third edition, giving the results for 1876-1884, and "Prophecies" to 1900. 24mo. Cloth. 1 00 Bankers, pork-packers, farmers, merchants, and speculators, will find it to their advantage to study the facts as presented in this book, and the theories and prophecies based on them.

This is a book of books, and should be in the hands of every business man. In a clear, plausible and truthful way it reveals in what years to make money on pig-iron, hogs, corn, provisions, etc., and will be found of great value to persons engaged in the industries to which it is dedicated. The author reasons from analogy, as well as statistics compiled from close observations through many years, and supports his predictions regarding future panics and future

prices of pig-iron. pork, etc., with a philosophic course of reasoning which can not fail to impress all and convince many.-N. Y. Commercial Pathfinder.

This is a peculiar little volume, and the information is most invaluable, as it furnishes us with rules by which we can foretell the future rise and fall of prices of commodities, and gives us a basis for calculation where guessing was the only dependence before.-Iron World.
