A Bubble Fortune. By Sarah Tytler. (Hutchinson.)—Harry Newton is treated

with little mercy by the writer who has called him into being. He comes over to England, the son of a mil- lionaire—so, at least, every one supposes—and is interrupted in the midst of his University career by news of his father's bankruptcy. He accommodates himself to circumstances with astonishing facility, and then, when he has passed middle age, comes news that the family estate has fallen to him. Of course the sagacious reader is aware that all is not right, and before long the true heir turns up. Harry is an admirably drawn character, one of the author's best efforts in that line; and the tale, with its vicissitudes of fortune, somewhat extravagant as they are, is unquestionably interesting.
