Literary notice.

We have only space to say that the advance sheets of Rise and fall of the Confederacy, by President Davis, give ample evidence that it will be a book of absorbing interest, written in the vigorous, classic English for which the distinguished author is so famous, and containing many things which he alone could properly set forth. It will have an immense sale and be most widely read, for men of every shade of opinion will be anxious to read the story of the Confederacy, as told by its Chief Magistrate. And while there will be wide divergence of opinion as to the book and its author, and doubtless some sharp criticism of both, all true Confederates should rejoice that he has been spared to complete, his task, and that we will have the true story of our great struggle written by him whom the people chose as their leader, and who will be recognized by the world when the mists of passion shall have passed away, as one of the truest patriots and most conscientious, upright men that ever drew sword in freedom's cause.
