LITTLE BRIDGE STREET and DOLPHIN COURT.
Messrs. TRÜBNER & Co., 8 and 60, Paternoster Row, London, either have imported, or can supply, the whole of the American and Oriental Works named in this Literary Record. Librarians and Scholars, therefore, who experience any difficulty in procuring them, would do well to communicate direct with the Publishers of As may readily be supposed, it would be imprudent to import such works in large quantities; but all specified can be supplied if a reasonable time be allowed, excepting such as may contain wholly or in part, copyright matter, or in any way infringe British copyright law.
SHORT NOTICES OF NEW PUBLICATIONS.
Aus Moscheles' Leben. Nach Briefen und Tagebüchern herausgegeben von seiner Frau. 2 vols. 8vo. pp. 320 and 364. A LIFE OF MOSCHELES, who for so many years lived amongst us, highly respected and admired, has lately appeared in Germany, and has met with the most cordial reception, both from the public and the press. We have seen it repeatedly noticed that this life has been most truthfully and unostentatiously compiled from Moscheles' own diaries and letters, and that although it is his wife who has undertaken this difficult task, we do not anywhere meet with a desire to overrate the merits of either the man or the artist. These volumes are, moreover, highly attractive from the introduction of a number of celebrated musicians, painters, and poets with whom Moscheles associated during the sixty years of his artistic career; we need only mention Beethoven and his death-bed correspondence with Moscheles, the friendly intercourse with Sir Walter Scott, a more or less intimate acquaintance with the host of pianists from Clementi to Liszt, and above all the friendship subsisting for upwards of twenty years between Moscheles and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. We cannot help feeling that it was such as is rarely to be met with. We are introduced to many touching traits of almost brotherly affection, we enjoy the merriment of their social intercourse, and are deeply affected by the death-bed scene vividly depicted by Moscheles, whose grief at the loss of his beloved young friend is truly pathetic, and will, we are convinced, touch a sympathetic chord in the hearts of all those who knew Mendelssohn or enjoy his music.
EUROPEAN, AMERICAN, AND COLONIAL LITERARY INTELLIGENCE.
THE PERIODICAL PRESS OF THE UNITED STATES. Although we believe there are more newspapers, magazines, reviews, and other periodical publications issued in the United States than in any other country in the world, there has not as yet been any scheme to catalogue them, except for advertising purposes, and these lists have necessarily been very imperfect. We rejoice to learn that there is shortly to be a catalogue made which will be compiled in the interests of Bibliography rather than in those of the almighty dollar: it is to be published under the auspices of the Government, and Mr. E. Steiger, the enterprising and talented publisher of New York, has undertaken the task of compiling and the expense of printing it. We have received from him a prospectus, headed "American Journalism at the Vienna Exhibition, 1873," in which the Hon. Thos. B. Van Buren,
a full description, terms of subscription, etc. If this is done, he thinks the laborious task of arranging and cataloguing may then be accomplished. He says, "A free press is the acknowledged palladium of liberty; but it is something more; it is the best test of a nation's intellectual status, and of the extent of its general education. The education of a people will always be found to correspond, in ratio, to the freedom and extent of its journalism. Ours is pre-eminently a country of newspapers. We may fearlessly challenge the outside world to show anything approaching the enterprise, vigour, and extent of American journalism. This is no idle boast, it is a matter for legitimate pride; and if the fact can be made as manifest abroad as it is at home, it is the fact of all others that would most impress foreigners with an idea of our great mental activity, and, since newspapers prove the
that through and by the Periodical Press of this country, our Common School Education be thoroughly represented, both in its aims and its results. To that end, a single specimen number of every newspaper, magazine, or review issued in the United States should be exhibited; and the collection should also embrace all periodical publications circulated gratuitously by tradesmen and others." It is proposed to include in the collection everything of a periodical nature,school reports, proceedings or transactions of learned societies, and even patent medicine publications; and it is to be arranged geographically with references under classified headings in various languages, which will make the catalogue which it is proposed to issue of the collection a polyglot for universal use.
situation; over which we in common with our kin of the West may well be exultant, and for one I rejoice that I belong to the same race with those stout-hearted sons and daughters of Chicago, who are now teaching a lesson of patient endurance and well-directed enterprise to the world, such as was never witnessed before in the whole broad history of civilization."
OBITUARY-EMERSON.-Mr. Benjamin D. Emerson, known in connexion with "Emerson's North American Arithmetic," has died at his residence, Jamacia Plains, Mass. He left a quarter of a million dollars, mostly bequeathed for educational uses. Dartmouth College receives 100,000 dollars
out of the sum so left. The prospectus contains a blank form to be filled up by the proprietors of periodicals, with full directions and samples of the methods of classification which it is intended to follow.-It is to be hoped that the Periodical Press of the United Kingdom will be represented at the Vienna Exhibition on the same plan as the above, and not in a desultory disconnected manner.
MASTERS OF THE SITUATION.-Under this significant and striking title, Mr. J. T. Fields, of Boston, Mass., the poet, and late publisher and editor of the Atlantic Monthly, whose latest production was the charming little volume entitled "Yesterdays with Authors," has been delivering a lecture at Chicago and at Cambridge, Mass. At both places he paid a wellmerited compliment to the citizens of Chicago. He found them "Masters of the Situation," and that their beautiful city had, in one year after the great fire, risen phoenix-like from its ashes. The lecture was delivered at the Baptist Church, Michigan-avenue, in Chicago, which is an edifice not well adapted for acoustics, but Mr. Fields appears to have made himself "master of the situation," as his lecture lasted an hour and fifteen minutes, and was much applauded throughout. During his stay in Chicago, Mr. Fields addressed the faculty and students of the University of Chicago on Alfred Tennyson. This address on his friend and former host, appears to have been more like loving talk about the poet's mode of life and of his works than a formal lecture. The same evening he gave the "Reminiscences of Tennyson in full, at the Union Park Church, Chicago, and the verdict of his audience was that he has established his reputation as one of the most brilliant and charming lecturers the United States has produced. During his stay in Chicago, Mr. Fields was the guest of his old friend Mr. S. C. Griggs, at Groveland Park, who was till recently the leading bookseller, and is now the most enterprising publisher of the great NorthWest. When delivering his lecture on Masters of the Situation, at Cambridge, Mass., Mr. Fields thus prefaced it: "A few hours ago I stood for the first time in the great city of Chicago, amazed at the spectacle before me. Instead of ruin I find such a grandeur of restoration and strength of enterprise, such an overwhelming result of indomitable will, unfailing industry, and courage, that I almost doubted the evidence of my senses, and could scarcely believe that any such conflagration as we had heard of and read of had occurred at all. Surely this is the mastery of a tremendous
GREELEY.-Mr. Horace Greeley, General Grant's late opponent in the Presidential election, has just died of inflammation of the brain. He was born at Amhurst, New Hampshire, Februray 3rd, 1811, and was editor and proprietor of the New York Tribune since 1841, besides being the author of many books on political and social subjects. He was an anti-slavery partisan and staunch Unionist, but his private character and kindly disposition were well illustrated when he became bail for Mr. Jefferson Davis, the ex-President of the late Confederate States.
HADLEY.-Professor James Hadley, of Yale College, died on November the 14th. This gentleman-one of the leading Comparative Philologists-was for two years President of the American Oriental Society, and this year the Vice-President of the American Philological Association. He was a contributor to the "New Englander," besides other literary periodicals and transactions; the author of a Greek Grammar, and a work on the Elements of the Greek Language.
PROFESSOR JOH. CHR. FELIX BAEHR.-We deeply regret to have to announce the death of one of the great philologists of our time. Professor Joh. Chr. Felix Bähr died at Heidelberg on the 28th November, 1872, at the advanced age of 74. Having completed his early education at the Gymnasium of Heidelberg, Bähr entered the University of the same town, where in 1821 he was appointed to the Professorship of Philology and Archæology. At that time he was chiefly occupied with the study of Plutarch, the results of which were presented to philological literature in his copiously annotated editions of Alcibiades, Philopoemen, Flaminius, and Pyrrhus. His opus magnum, however, and the work confirming and establishing his reputation as a sound scholar, is the "History of Roman Literature," the fourth edition of which in 4 volumes appeared only recently. The "Commentaries on Herodotus" is Bahr's second important work. From 1834 he edited, first in conjunction with Schlosser and Muncke, and since 1847 alone, the Heidelberger Jahrbücher. Classical Philology has sustained by his death a great loss; his friends and co-workers will ever remember his amiable and never failing readiness to assist them in his capacity as Librarian of the University at Heidelberg, and we are sure his memory will be cherished by all those who have had the privilege of enjoying his personal acquaintance.
