The week has produced several reprints ; one of the

most remarkable of which is a third edition of Lord Nugent's "Life of Hampden," with an unpretending but dear, able, and masterly memoir of the public life of Lord Nugent,—evidently by a confidential friend, from the nature of the documents he quotes. Lamartine's "Celebrated Characters" has reached a second edition, with a new life of Milton. There is also a second edition of "The Quiet Heart," as well as of the " Ballad of the Battle of the Alma." "The Sunday at Home" is the collection into a sightly volume of a very cheap weekly periodical, with well-varied and interesting matter designed

for Sabbath reading, published by the Religious Tract Society. "The Leisure Hour" is the third volume of a similar publication, apparently emanating from the same source, but of a more secular cast.
