The “ heart of the Pacific, as it was and is,” shows most vividly the contrast between the depth of degradation and barbarism, and the light and liberty of civilization, so rapidly realized in these islands under the

The Polar Regions-Osborn

A thrilling and intensely interesting narrative of one of the famous ex. peditions in search of Sir John Franklin-unsuccessful in its main object, but adding many facts to the repertoire of science.

Thirteen Months in ihe Confederate Army

75

The author, a northern man conscripted into the Confederate service, and rising from the ranks by soldierly conduct to positions of responsibility, had remarkable opportunities for the acquisition of facts respecting the conduct of the Southern armies, and the policy and deeds of their leaders. He participated in many engagements, and his book is one of the most exciting narratives of adventure ever published. Mr. Stevenson takes no ground as a partizan, but views the whole subject as with the eye of a neutral-only interested in subserving the ends of history by tho contribution of impurtial facts.
