The army of the Cumberland. By Henry M. Cist, Brevet Brigadier-General U. S. V.; A. A. G. on the staff of Major-General Rosecrans and the staff of Major-General Thomas; Secretary of the Society of the Army of the Cumberland.
Atlanta. By the Hon. Jacob D. Cox, Ex-Governor of Ohio; late Secretary of the Interior of the United States; Major General U. S. V., etc. We have received from the publishers (Charles Scribner's Sons), through West & Johnston, Richmond, these two volumes, which constitute 8 and 9 of the uniform series they are bringing out. Reserving them for future review by some competent hand, we can only say now that these volumes should have a place in our libraries as giving the Federal side of the story, told by active participants. But each successive volume only gives renewed emphasis to our previously expressed opinion that if the Messrs. Scribner really desire to publish valuable “material for the future historian,” then they must bring out twelve companion volumes written by some of our ablest Confederate soldiers.

Proceedings of the Virginia Historical Society, with the address of Wm. Wirt Henry on the early settlement of Virginia. February 24, 1882. We have just received the above from the Secretary, R. A. Brock, Esq., and have only space now to congratulate the Society on preserving this valuable material, on the skilful editing which Mr. Brock has done, and on the tasteful and beautiful manner in which the printer (W. Ellis Jones, Richmond), has done his work. We will hereafter show the historic value of the Spottswood Letters, and give some specimens of the able and conclusive manner in which Mr. Henry has vindicated the truth of early Virginia history.
