A charming little work on GOETHE may be shortly expected

from the pen of the accomplished translator of the Letters of a German Prince. It is by JOHANNES FALK, a Privy Counsellor of Weimar, and long the intimate friend of the great German poet and philosopher. The genius of the 'subject, the opportuni- ties of the writer, and the happy style of the translator, lead us to expect a great treat.
