New publications.

We are indebted to J. W. Randolph for the following new publications:

New Map of Virginia; also, a Map of the Seat of War in Eastern Virginia. Both pocket maps; by Husted & Henning, of this city.

Cooper's Cavalry Tactics; including manual for Colt's revolver, and Maury's skirmish drill for mounted troops. Richmond: J. W. Randolph.

A Manual of Military Surgery; or hints on the emergency of field, camp and hospital practice; by S. D. Gross, M. D. Augusta (Georgia) Chronicle and Sentinel office.

Gillham's School of the Soldier, and school of the company, for infantry and rifle drill, Augusta, Georgia Bryan & Thompson.

These are all small and convenient editions; for sale by J. W. Randolph.

Manual of Instruction for the Volunteers and Militia of the Confederate States; by Colonel William Gillham, Instructor of Tactics in the Virginia Military Institute. Richmond: West & Johnston publishers.

This book stands very high amongst military men. In noticing it we are gratified in being able to pronounce the printing of it as excellent — indeed, unsurpassable for a work of the kind. It is highly honorable to Southern art, and would be creditable to the typography of any country.
