Dictionary of British- Indian Dates. (Blackwood.)—This little pocket volume will

be found a very useful book of reference by those who wish to refresh their memory as to the facts of British-Indian rule. It com- prises within its 177 pages a mass of varied information—lists of the Regulations (1793-1832); and Acts of Council (1831-60); dates of treaties, battles, and remarkable incidents, either in the history of the country or in the lives of historical persons ; names of chairmen of the Court of Directors, governors, generals, &c., with period of office. In short it may be described as a skeleton history of our doings in India, broken up into separate bones, arranged in alphabetical order.
