3.-Memoiren von März, 1848, bis Juli, 1849. Beitrag zur Geschichte der Wiener Revolution von Dr. ANTON FÜSTER, &c., &c. Frankfurt, a M. 1850. 2 vols., 12mo., pp. 296 and 304.

DR. FÜSTER was formerly a Professor of Theology at Görz, for eight years Preacher at Triest, Dom-Prediger at Laibach, and at length, in 1847, Professor of Theology and Pædagogy at the University of Vienna. He was apparently a Catholic, but distinguished for liberal opinions. He was one of the leaders in the beginning of the Revolution at Vienna, the Commander of the Academic Legion, and for some time the actual Ruler of Vienna. At the failure of the Revolution, he was obliged to flee for his life. These two volumes, containing his account of the Austrian Revolution, are authentic and interesting. They are written with a good deal of minute detail, in a style singularly fresh and vigorous. Some of the speeches of Dr. Füster indicate great powers of popular oratory. He is now in Boston, no longer a Catholic. He preaches on his own account to a German congregation every Sunday evening, advocating the liberal principles of Protestantism. He is a learned and accomplished man. The Austrian persecu

tion still follows him to America.

4.The Scarlet Letter: a Romance. By NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE. Boston. 1850. 12mo. pp. IV. and 322.

EVERYBODY will rejoice that Mr. Hawthorne has broken his long silence and given us another tale. For power of conception and beauty of execution, we think this a great deal superior to any of his former productions. The romance would be an ornament to any literature in the world. We are glad to learn that its sale has been rapid beyond precedent for a work of this character.

5.-Poems. By HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW. In two volumes, a new edition. Boston. 1850. 12mo. pp. XVI. and 475; vi. and 452.

MR. LONGFELLOW is the most popular poet of America, and his many friends for we think so loving a spirit has no enemies — will welcome these two beautiful volumes, full of their old favorites. The author has collected here all the pieces from his pen which he wishes to preserve; all but one we think have been published before, the Prelude, a pleasing introduction to the series which follows.

6.- The Life and Religion of Mohammed, as contained in the Sheeah Traditions of the Hyât-ul-Kuloob. Translated from the Persian. By REV. JAMES L. MERRICK, eleven years Missionary to the Persians. Member of the American Oriental Society. Boston. 1850. 8vo. pp. XVI. and 489.

THIS is one of the most valuable contributions to the Mohammedan literature of the Christian world which has been made for many years. Mr. Merrick translates from the second volume of the Hyâtul-Kuloob, or Life of Hearts, a work written by Mohammed Bâker, a celebrated and voluminous Persian author, who was born about A. D. 1627, and died about 1697. All the lives of Mohammed, known to the Christians hitherto, have been derived from a single sect of Mohammedans, the Sunnees; this comes from the rival sect, the Sheeahs. The book is curious and entertaining as well as instructive. The translation has been executed with great care and fidelity by Mr. Merrick. We would say more of it here, but have prepared an elaborate article on the subject, which will appear in another place,

7.- The Optimist. By HENRY T. TUCKERMAN, &c. New York. 1850. 12mo. pp. XII. and 273.

THIS Volume contains twenty-two essays on "all sorts of subjects," such as New England Philosophy, and New York Colonists, Hands, Hair, Manner, Flowers, Humor, Love and the Weather. These several papers are of quite unequal merit, but some of them are original in thought and written in a fresh and pleasing style. The author does not aim at a very "high praise," but has written an agreeable book.
