New Publications. --We have received from Messrs West & Johnston a copy of their latest publication, "Mistress and Maid," by Miss. Muloch, author of "John Halifax Gentleman, " &c. It is an excellent novel, and will be widely read. It is one of a set of standard novels that this firm is getting up in the handsomest style. The Southern Literary Messenger, for June, has been received. Its contents are varied and very readable. "The First Reader," is the title of what its name implies — a primary school book for children. It is edited by a "distinguished Southern teacher," and is clearly printed in large type by. A. Morris, publisher.

The battle Commenced in North Georgia--Gen. Polk killed. Atlanta, June 14. --The enemy opened slowly with artillery on our position yesterday afternoon, and, after the storm passed, continued up to nightfall. They opened again early this morning, and the artillery firing continued when the train left Marietta. Both armies are gradually moving towards our right. As the rains have closed, it is supposed that active operations will again commence. Trains from the front to-day bring very few wounded. The following dispatch from Major West, of Gen. Polk's staff, was received by Col. Thrasher at noon to-day: "Lieut. Gen. Polk was struck by a cannon shot to-day about eleven o'clock and instantly killed. Gens. Johnston, Hardee and Jackson were with him when he fell."
New music. --We have received from Messrs. West & Johnston, publishers, a copy of the new song--"Wait till the War, Love, is Over"--words by A. J. Andrews, music by C. W. Burton; arranged for the piano forte. As a musical composition it is creditable, and it will no doubt become quite popular.
New Publications. We have received from Messrs. West & Johnston, No. 145 Main street, "East Lynne; or, The Earl's Daughter," an English work, by Mrs. Wood; a most popular authoress, whose "Red Court Farm" elicited great praise from the critics of her own country. The plot is very dramatic, and the writing is natural and easy, sometimes displaying considerable of that knowledge of human nature, without which a novelist is nothing. The book is gotten out in very good style. The same firm has also republished Fowlers Arithmetic — a valuable work for schools.

Charged with stealing corn. --A negro fellow, named William, slave of Cornelius Crew, was arrested yesterday afternoon by officer Granger on the charge of stealing one bushel of corn, belonging to West, a slave of Fanny Carter. When arrested, William was at a shanty occupied by himself, and was just in the act of shoving the corn under the bed when the officer entered.
MacARIOrio. --We have received from Messrs. West & Johnston a copy of this work--one of the twentieth thousand, just issued. Its run has been more remarkable than any publication made since the war.

The Georgia Legislature and Governor Brown. --We find the following in the Tuesday's proceedings of the Georgia House of Delegates: Mr. West moved to take up his resolutions in relation to pledging this State to a vigorous prevention of the war. Mr. Ezzard offered the following: "Resolved, That the General Assembly earnestly recommend that our Government make to the United States officials offers of peace on the basis of the great principles of our common fathers in 1776. "Resolved further, That our Senators and Representatives in Congress be requested to use their influence to stop this unnatural stride, looking forward to the time when peace may be obtained upon just and honorable terms."

's Legacy. (search)
John Marchmont's Legacy. --This is another novel from the prolific coinage of Miss. Braddon. It has been re- published here through the enterprise of West & Johnston, to whom we are indebted for a copy. It is peculiarly after the Braddon manner — full of startling incidents and strong excitements. Those who are fond of their style — which we cannot say that we are — will be greatly pleased with this book. It is, by the way, at least equal, in point of execution, to anything she has given us heretof
The cotton Trade--McHenry. --This valuable work, imported by the enterprising firm of West & Johnston from London, will attract much attention in the Confederate States. It contains the celebrated letter of George McHenry to Mr. Gregory, M. P., on the cotton question, many of the statements of which have been realized with prophetic accuracy. It is a volume in which all the assertions are sustained by statistics, gathered with great care, and is of great value to the statesman as well as of interest to the general reader. The book, like all specimens of English typography, is very handsomely gotten up, and embellished with an attractive binding.
