Critical and Social Essays. Reprinted from The New-York “ Nation." New York : Leypoldt & Holt. 16mo, pp. 230.

Vol. I., containing the Causes of the War, and the Events preparatory to it, up to the close of President Buchanan’s Administration. New York: Harper & Brothers. 8vo, pp. 567. (This history is rather the working out of a thesis respecting the effect of climate and other natural influences on a people's character and life. It is very able; very interesting in its summary of scientific facts; very didactic and positive in tone; ample in its gathering of information; clear and vigorous in its outline of our political history. We hope to find the opportunity of a more full review.)
