A New Southern book.

Messrs. West & Johnston have just published a book entitled ‘"The Southern Spy,"’ by Edward A Pollard, Esq., of this city. It embodies a series of letters on the policy and inauguration of the Lincoln war, written anonymously in Washington and elsewhere, which, besides the actual interest pertaining to their perusal, supply an important part of the history of the present revolution. The pages of the book abound in vigorous expressions of sentiment, with excoriating criticisms upon the acts of Lincoln and other leading politicians and priests of the North. We heartily commend it to the public.
