What to Read at Entertainments. Edited by the Rev. Frederick

Langbridge. (Religious Tract Society.)—A fairly good selection of verse, and suited to the class spoken of in the preface. We notice a good many of Longfellow's, also we should mention the editor's contributions, of which we might instance "Ned Ridge-

way's Escape" as a type which, with its little spice of humour, is just what is wanted.
