Theon. A tale of the American civil war. By Sallie Neil Roach, of Louisville. Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott & Co.

We propose to give hereafter some extracts from this charming little book, that our readers may judge for themselves of its merits. We have only time now to say that its simple plot is skillfully woven, its story is sweetly told, and its versification is of a high order of merit.

We believe that this is Mrs. Roach's first attempt at authorship, but this book will at once rank her among our sweetest singers, and we predict for her a brilliant literary career. The volume is, of course, a fine specimen of the book-maker's art, and should find a place in many homes.
