The Yellow God. By Reginald Horsley. (W. and R. Chambers.)

—The chief subject of this tale, which is told with considerable force, and certainly justifies its title of "A Tale of Some Strange Adventures," is life at the goldfields of Australia. The hero, of course, is shipwrecked on his way, and more than a third of the book is disposed of before we reach the action. We could dispense with these prefaces.
