"He is the author of a multitude of good sayings, so disguised as pleasantries that it is certain they had no reputation at first but as jests; and only later, by the very acceptance and adoption they find in the mouths of millions, turn out to be the wisdom of the hour. I am sure if this man had ruled in a period of less facility of printing, he would have become mythological in a very few years, like Esop or Pilpay, or one of the Seven Wise Masters, by his fables and proverbs." -Ralph Waldo Emerson.

The Thinking Bayonet.

By JAMES K. HOSMER, author of "COLOR GUARD," of which the "NewYork Evening Post" says:—" There has not appeared, since the war began to show its influence on literature, a book which gives us so vivid a sketch of the soldier's life, so sharp and yet gracefully outlined a drawing of the transport, the camp, the march, the hospital, the fight."

The new work is written with equal vigor and point, and includes much of the same personal incident and adventure which gave the "Guard” such success. The Springfield Republican" remarks: "It will make a deeper and more lasting mark than its genial and popular predecessor." 12mo. $1.55.

Poems. By Alfred TENNYSON. Fargingford edition. 2 vols. 16mo. $5.00.

This is a new and complete edition of Tennyson, containing his Poems complete; and the volumes are among the handsomest ever issued from the press. They are printed on fine paper, bound in unique and tasteful style, and contain four fine steel engravings, including a New Portrait of Tennyson, of striking excellence and fidelity. These volumes embrace the three latest poems of the author: "The Captain," "Sonnets to a Coquette," and "To a Mourner."

Alfred Hagart's Household. By ALEXANDER SMITH. 1 vol. 16mo. Paper, 75 cents; Cloth, $1.00.

This is the first novel from the pen of the distinguished author of "A Life Drama," and "City Poems;" and, as such, aside from its intrinsic merit, which is conceded by high literary authorities, must command general perusal.

A Man without a Country. Paper, 10 cents.

This striking narrative, or story, originally appeared in the "Atlantic Monthly," and received unqualified praise. The terrible fate of Philip Nolan has a special significance at the present time; and those who failed to read his history in its original form, will welcome the present volume.

Essays in Criticism. By MATTHEW ARNOLD. 1 vol. 16mo. $1.75.

Prof. Arnold's Essays are characterized by vigor and fearlessness of expression, and display profound learning and delicate critical discrimination.
