"Lee's Memoirs." We learn, with much pleasure, that Adolphus Morris, of this city, is about to publish a new edition of this work, under the auspices of a member of the author's family. It is to contain a biographical sketch of General Lee, and numerous letters, never before published. A new edition of Gen. Lee's book has long been a desideratum. We think it a great pity that some one does not undertake an edition, also, of "Tariton's Campaigns," and Mackenzie's reply to Tariton's statebefore published. A new edition of Gen. Lee's book has long been a desideratum. We think it a great pity that some one does not undertake an edition, also, of "Tariton's Campaigns," and Mackenzie's reply to Tariton's statements. They are valuable books, although written with much less spirit and life than Lee's, and they relate to the same events. A cheap edition of the two, we should think, would sell. We are impatient to see Mr. Morris' publication, and hope it will be forth-coming soon.

Tarlton's campaigns. We had occasion to state some time ago, that our enterprising fellow-citizen Adolphus Morris, Esq., was about to publish a new edition of Lee's Memoirs of the Southern war, a work which ought never to have been allowed to go so nearly out of print as it has done, and the re-publication of which we are well assured will amply compensate the publisher for the trouble and expense. There is another work which, we believe, has never been re-published in this country, which exists only in the English edition, which is of great interest to the whole South, and which we should be glad to see re-published here, under the supervision of some competent person.--We allude to Tarlton's campaigns. They are not written with the vigor and freshness of Lee's Memoirs, but they are full of interest, inasmuch as they give the English view of the great struggle in which we succeeded in establishing our liberty. The author, as our readers are well aware, was the most famous ma
