John Brown, Working-Man. (Routledge.)—John Brown is an hereditary pauper in

England (though not without some manly feeling that gives the impulse to rise), who becomes a working-man, respected and prosperous, in America. There is much that is worth reading in the book, relating both to the greater freedom of action. which the working-man, unhampered as he is by trade rules, enjoys in America, and to the greater economy and comfort of his life. Of course, there is another side to this, as to all questions. Meanwhile,. the side so vigorously set forth in the little volume before us is well worth considering.
