well-chosen examples of the devotional songs of the Ger mans. Of the first series of her Lyra Germanica, which consisted of Hymns for the Sundays and chief Festivals of the Christian Year, a beautifully illustrated edition has already appeared. With what satisfaction it was received, is evident from the fact that we have now to record the appearance of a similar edition of The Christian Life, which contains, among others, hymns of a more personal and individual character than those in the former series — hymns adapted to particular circumstances or periods of life, and to particular states of feeling. No expense, no pains have been spared to make the beauty of the volume equal to its interest. Though the principal share of the illustrations has been entrusted to Mr. Leighton, the pencils of Mr. Armitage and Mr. Madox Brown have been called in to assist. Some of these designs are of remarkable beauty; all are characterised by a most reverent treatment of the holy scenes and thoughts which they embody; and those who think that a Christmas book should partake of the character of that holy yet joyous season, will find that this splendid edition of Miss Winkworth's Christian Life exactly meets all their requirements. The Huguenots : their Settlements, Churches, and Industries in England and Ireland. By Samuel Smiles, Author of " Self Help,” &c. (Murray.)

Mr. Smiles is again happy in the choice of his subject; for, on the present occasion, he has entered upon an historical inquiry of which perhaps it would be difficult to decide whether its claim to novelty or interest be the higher. When we consider that, according to the estimate of Sismondi, the religious persecutions which followed the revocation of the Edict of Nantes cost France not far short of a million of her best and most industrious subjects, and the vast influence which the immigration of French Huguenots at that time has exercised on the political and industrial history of this country, it is somewhat remarkable that it should be left to a writer of the present day to make it the subject of his special atteniion. Several important contributions to such a work as the present have been published within the last few years, such as Mr. Burn's List of Foreign Refugees, and the similar Lists edited by Mr. Durrant Cooper for the Camden Society. But the subject has never before been systematicall; treated. Mr. Smiles does not confine himself, however, strictly to the Huguenots and their influences; he reviews the earlier immigration of foreign artisans into this country, and the encouragement held out to them from time to time by the more enlightened of our rulers. To many readers, however, the portions of the book most replete with interest and amusement will be the chapters in which Mr. Smiles treats of the men of science and learning, and the men of industry among the Huguenots; and yet more especially his notices of the descendants of the Refugees—the Laboucheres, Romillys, and Lefevres, who, in public life at the present day, exhibit the high moral and intellectual qualities for which their progenitors were distinguished.

These little volumes, which have just been issued, are " things of beauty" although they are only for a year, and not like those things of beauty of which Keats sung, “joys for ever.” But they are not only elegant--they are complete and useful : for, while the manner in which they are got up, bound, and turned out, is characterised by the good taste for which the house of De La Rue has now an European reputation, the various items of useful information which they contain are accurate, and fully to be relied upon.
