    Highlight: By Bayard Taylor. 12mo., pp. 589. New York : George P. Putnam A Co. The present yolume closes the record of the author’s twQ-and-a-half years’ travel, which was commenced in the “ Journey to Central Africa,” and continued in the ** Lands of the Saracen.” Bayard Taylor, though a rapid traveler, has a clear, keen eye, and a quick perception, and a power of description that comparatively few of his cotemporaries possess. There is an apparent truthfulness in his delineation of scenes and incidents, that adds greatly to the value of whatever he undertakes to write. The entire travels included in this book, embracing India, China, Japan, Loo Ohoo and Bonin Islands, and a long homeward voyage around the Cape of Good Hope, were all accomplished in the space of a year, and yet few of the

By mid-1849, Mexican and Indian women were washing clothes out by the Presidio along the Fresh Pond, which soon became known as Washerwoman’s Lagoon. They were doing so well that several dozen men set up laundries there too. Washing clothes may not have been traditionally a man’ s job , but it paid two or three times as much as pushing a wheelbarrow or unloading ships’ cargoes. The washerwomen settled on one edge of the lagoon, and the

There are now no points of special interest until arriving at the end of the trolly line, at eleven o’clock, in front of the old Green Tree Inn, where a stop of a few minutes will be made and Mr. Hoopes will join the party. The old Inn has been modernized by the Sharpies Separator Company into a combination of store and club house. Leaving the Inn we turn south and immediately pass the National Bank of Chester County on the left, with its large white columns, the oldest bank in the County, established in 1814

Three-quarters left portrait of Taylor on obverse / seated History with expanse of New York City behind her.

    Highlight: Bayard Taylor. With a Preface, by N. P. Willis. New York: Wiley & Putnam’s Library of Ameri- can Books. “ This book,” says Mr. Willis, “ requires no introduction. It tells its own story, and tells it well.” The author, a printer’s apprentice, left this country with about one hun- dred dollars in his pocket, advanced by two editors, for twelve letters to be sent from Eu- rope for the United States Gazette and the Saturday Evening Post, and succeeded in earn- ing enough by his pen to defray the expenses of a two years 1 residence and travel in Eu- rope ; travelling in that time, on foot, upwards of three thousand miles, in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and France, where he visited the principal places of interest, enjoying the grandest scenery of the continent, as well as the marvels of

    Highlight: Bayard Taylor, James J. Jarvis, and many others of scarcely less celebrity. What more can we say ; except, perhaps, that the present issue surpasses any of the preceding volumes. 9. — Posthumous Work of the Rev. Thomas Chalmers , D . D., LL. D. Edited by the Rev. William Hanna, LL. D. Vol. I. 12mo., pp. 422. New York: IJarper & Brothers. The first volume of these works is entitled “Hor® Biblic® Quotidian® ; or, Daily ’ tare Readings.” These were commenced by the author about six years ago, and were continued until the time of his death. A portion of the Bible was read every day, and the reflections which it suggested were immediately written in a few brief paragraphs. They comprise his first and readiest thoughts on each verse. These “ Readings” com- mence with Genesis, and extend to

    Highlight: Bayard Taylor, Hannah F. Gould, E. Oakes Smith, and many of equal excellence and celebrity as popular writers. In all that pertains to its external appearance, it will not suffer by comparison with any that we have seen, English or American. 2. — The Odd-FeUotos* Offerings for 1849. Embellished with twelve elegant Engravings. Edited by Pascal Donaldson. 8vo., pp. 320. New York: Edward Walker. This is the seventh annual issue of the ** Odd-Fellows* Offering.** That the present is vastly superior to the earlier volumes, must be apparent to the most superficial critic. Un- der the homely name assumed by the fraternity, we find principles pure and imperishable ; and we rejoice that those concerned in the editorship and publication are able ‘‘ to make a book worthy of the steady and healthful

Mr. Taylor is gene- rally more reliable in his statements that many of the travelers of the “ olden ” of modern times. His quiet humor will, however, sometimes “ stick out,” as the reader will notice in the last statement of the following extract from his letter on the Cod Fisheries : — Digitized by Google

    Merchant's Magazine, 1857 (vol. 36)

    1/1/1857

    Highlight: By Bayard Taylor. With Map and two fllnstrations. First American Edition. 12mo., pp. 492. New Yort : G. P. Putnam & Co. We are told by Mr. Tavlor, the American traveler and editor of the present work — good authority— that since the days of William Pitts, of Exeter, (A. D. 1678-1688.) no European travelers, with the exception of Burchardt ana Lieu- tenant Burton have b^n able to send us back an account of thehr travels there. It cannot, therefore, be doubted but that the present work will be hailed an a welcome addition to our knowledge of those hitherto mysterious penetralia of Mahommedan superstition. In fact, the El Medina of I^eut Burton may be considered almost a virgin theme. We believe with Mr. Putnam, the accom- plished publisher, that no volume of modem travel possesses greater

    Highlight: Bayard Taylor, in narrating his second visit aloDg the coast of Norway, in 1857, (his first visit having been but a few weeks previous,) remarks : — “ I was particularly struck, during the return, with the rapid progress of sum- mer — the flying leaps with which she clears her short course. Among the Lofodens the potatoes were coming into blossom, and the rye and barley into head ; the grass was already cut in many places and drying on poles, and the green of the woods and meadows showed the dark rich character or the southern lands. Owing to this rapidity of growth, all the more hardy varieties of vegeta- • bles may be successfully cultivated. Mr. Thomas informed me that his peas and beans at Kaafiord, (latitude seventy degrees north,) grew three inches in twenty four hours ! and that

    Highlight: who may with much propriety be placed in the same category with Bayard Taylor. He is the most remarkable of all the travelers who have visited Africa, and his book' will be found entertaining to a degree, not only as a plain tale of manners and customs as he found them m the land of the Caffre, but as containing a vast amount of information on the geology, me- teorology, zoology, and history of the countries which he visited, as well as an interesting recital of many hair-breadth escapes and adventures. On the whole, it will be found a very readable book, neither dry nor barren, though destitute of ideals — a plain, instructive statement of unvarnished fact. 8. — A Treatise on Bills of Exchange and Promissory Notes .
