“An exceedingly clever gallery of groups from the genteel comedy of ordinary society. The characters of the upright good-natured baronet, and of his diplomatic cousin, that 'splendid specimen of the middle ages, who manoeuvres herself successfully into the position of Lady Graham, are admirably drawn.”

John Bull. “A novel from this lady's pen comes to us recommended by the ability of her former works, and the popularity of her name.

From the first chapter, in which we are introduced to a somewhat varied group in a ballroom, to the last page, there is nothing to excite our displeasure. It is a pleasant picture of social and domestic life. Many very amiable, many very amusing, and numerous very natural characters, are drawn.”

“ Everybody knows that fanaticism is religion caricatured ; bears, indeed, about the same relation to it that a monkey bears to a man; yet, with many, contempt of fanaticism is received as a sure sign of hostility to religion.” — WHIPPLE'S LECTURES.

The author, having for the last three years occupied much of her abundant leisure in a careful study of the best anti-Romanising authors, has thought it possible that the riddlings of all she has read on that subject might be useful to those who, being more unavoidably pre-occupied than herself, are nevertheless liable now, in whatever society they enter, to hear discussions connected with that faith which, depriving men of Holy Scripture, teaches Popish legends instead of Bible truths. Thus a Popish Priest, as he illuminates his altar with candles in the clearest daylight, so does he also prefer the uncertain glimmer of tradition to the glorious effulgence of Scripture, obscuring the rays that come from Heaven, to display the tapers that he kindles himself.

On the death of Vincent De Paul, Madame De Sévigné, who knew him well, writes — “ He was an agreeable man - only he cheated at cards !” This individual is now a canonized
