ADVERTISEMENT.

Or the five works included in these volumes, three were

originally published by the author under the nom de plume of J. A. G. Barton, while the fourth and fifth have appeared, in part only, in the pages of two Indian Magazines. Their collection in the form in which they are now presented has hardly any justification, except in the anthor's wish to bring them all forward a second time before the reading public. Those which appeared in book form before were largely, and, for the most part, very indulgently reviewed, and extracts from some of these notices are appended to the second volume.

The inaccuracies of style and grammar which the English reader may stumble over in wading through these volumes are sufficiently accounted for by the avowal of authorship now made. Further apology on that score seems scarcely to be called for.
