Life of Albert Sidney Johnston. By his son, Colonel Wm. Preston Johnston. D. Appleton & Co. This book is announced in our advertising columns as now ready, and we have had the privilege of reading some of the advanced sheets. Reserving a full review until we shall have an opportunity of reading the whole book, we will only say now that it is the story of the life of a noble man whose career shed lustre on the American name — that the narrative displays that delicacy of feeling, chaste diction and vigorous style that we expected from the accomplished author, and that the book will be a most valuable contribution to our history and one that will be widely read and appreciated.
