1861 vs. 1882. ‘Co. Aytch,’ Maury's Grays, first Tenn. Reg't, or A side show of the Big show. By Sam. R. Wat-Kins, Columbia, Tenn.

We say nothing as to its literary merits, or the taste of some things in it, but we do not hesitate to advise all who want a picture of the private Confederate soldier as he was, in camp, on the march, in the bivouac, on the battle-field, in the hospital—to send $1.50 to the author at Columbia, Tenn., and procure a copy of this book. Some of the pictures of soldier life are very vividly drawn, and it has a historic value in that it gives the inside of army life as seen and experienced by a ‘high private.’

‘reminiscences of the Guilford Grays, Co. B., twenty-Seventh N. C. Regiment. by John A Sloan.’

We are indebted to the author for this chapter in the history of a gallant company of one of the best regiments in the service. It is well written and is an interesting and valuable little book.

North Carolina in the war between the States. by John A. Sloan, late Captain of Co. B, twenty-Seventh N. C. Regi-Ment, Army of Northern Virginia.

We are indebted to the author for Part I of this work on which he has been for some time engaged. This part contains a very clear statement of the causes which led to the war, and an interesting sketch of the earlier events of the secession of North Carolina.

It shows careful research, and is written in a style which gives promise that the completed work will be not only a full statement of the part borne by the gallant old North State, but a valuable contribution towards a correct history of the war.

The book will be published in parts, and is furnished only to subscribers, and subscriptions may be sent direct to Colonel John A. Sloan, No. 1426 Thirty-third street, Washington, D. C. It should be in every collection of war literature, and in the hands of all interested in historical matters.

Electra—A Belles Lettres monthly for young people. Edited by Annie E. Wilson and Isabella M. Leyburn. 734 Fourth Avenue, Louisville, Ky.

We most cordially commend this new candidate for public favor as one every way worthy of a place in our homes. The graceful pens, sound judgment and fine taste of the accomplished editors, are making a magazine of high literary merit—fresh, entertaining and instructive—and which, at the same time, breathes a pure, elevated tone which we may safely introduce into our homes. We wish the fair editors every success, and would urge our people to give them the encouragement they so richly deserve.

the century and St. Nicholas lose none of their interest as the months go by, but continue to delight both old and young.
