and reissued by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York. We are indebted to the publishers for this admirable edition of a book which has long been noted for its real ability, and whose author President Davis justly pronounces the fairest and most careful of the Northern writers on the war. We expect to have hereafter a full review of the book, and to point out some very serious errors into which the author has fallen; but meantime we advise our friends to buy the book. The publishers, J. R. Osgood & Co., Boston, have sent us a copy of their beautifully gotten up memoir of Admiral John A. Dahlgren, by his widow, Mrs. M. V. Dahlgren. The book is largely autobiographical, as it quotes fully from the diaries, letters, etc., of the distinguished Admiral, and touches on many matters of deepest interest, and historic importance, to which we shall hereafter give attention.

But we must express now our regret that the author could not drop the partisan and write more in the spirit of the true soldier, and our purpose to show up hereafter some of his more glaring perversions of the truth of history.
