The Aduentures of a Watch. From the French of Julie

Gossrand.• (James Duffy.)—A specimen -of the work of a lady-whose tales for chil- dren have received honourable notice from the French Academy cannot but be welcome. It contains some pleasing sketches of domestic life in France and the Rhenish provinces, with just a little sentiment to season the morality to Parisian taste. Mr. Doyle has prefixed a title-page and frontispiece.
