"Our British essayists is a tempting and fruitful theme.

The Navy in the Civil War.
In three duodecimo volumes, uniform in style with the series "Campaigns of the Civil War," containing maps and diagrams prepared under direction of the author. Price per volume, $1.
I. THE BLOCKADE AND THE CRUISERS. By Prof. J. RUSSELL SOLEY, U. S. Navy.
"This book is well arranged, written clearly without technical terms, and shows great familiarity with the subject. It is marked by thoroughness of preparation, sound judgment, and admirable impartiality. It is a promising beginning of the projected series."-The Nation.
II. THE ATLANTIC COAST. By Rear-Admiral DANIEL AMMEN, U. S. Navy. (Ready June 20.)
Admiral Ammen's history of the naval operations on the Atlantic Coast, from 1861 to the close of the war, describes the active work of the navy in attacking the defensive strongholds of the Confederacy from Hampton Roads to Florida Keys. It concludes a full account of the long siege of Charleston and the scarcely less arduous operations against Fort Fisher, the capture of Hatteras Inlet, Roanoke Island, and Newbern, and other minor movements along the coast.
III. THE GULF AND INLAND WATERS. By Commander A. T. MAHAN, U. S. Navy. (Ready June 20.)
The achievements of the naval forces on the Mississippi and its tributaries, and on the Gulf and the Red River, either independently or in co-operation with the army, form one of the most thrilling chapters in the history of the Civil War. The record of these exploits is filled with acts of daring, marvellous escapes, and terrific encounters." Commander Mahan has done full justice to this side of his narrative, but he has given at the same time a record of this part of the war that has greater claim to historic value than any which have preceded it.

The Army of the Potomac from July, 1863, to March,
By ANDREW A. HUMPHREYS, Brevet Major-General U. S. A., etc. I vol., 12mo, 75 cents.
The retreat of Lee from Pennsylvania followed by Meade, and the various strategic operations of both armies prior to the final campaign of the Army of the Potomac, have never up to this time been satisfactorily described. General Humphreys' book throws light upon much that has been obscure or unaccounted for hitherto, and for army officers especially it will have unusual interest and value.
The Campaigns of the Civil War.
Twelve volumes and Supplement, with Maps and Plans. Price per volume, $1. Price per set, in a box, $12.50.
This series of War Histories is now complete. It covers minutely the whole story of the great conflict, and brings together for the first time a full and authoritative record of the events which finally resulted in the suppression of the Rebellion. The success of the books has been extraordinary, more than 75,000 volumes having been sold. They have been received everywhere with good feeling and favor by the public and by the press. In speaking of the series, the New York Tribune says:
"A high degree of editorial tact and intelligence characterizes the execution of Messrs. Scribner's excellent undertaking. The division of the work is judicious, the allotment of topics to the various writers is happy, and cordial cooperation has been secured from recognized authorities, from the Government, from distinguished military officers, and from the custodians of public and private records. To all this we may add that the volumes are convenient in size, beautifully printed, and furnished with many clear and simple maps."

1176. Postmasters are directed to advise the 720 public that in sending newspapers, books, pamphlets, and other articles by mail to foreign countries, or to distant points within the United States, the address should always be placed on the articles inclosed as well as on their wrappers. Should the wrappers become detached, as they frequently do, through the friction and movement incident to mail transportation by sea or land, it will still be possible to deliver the articles if this precaution is taken. Persons to whom such packages are regularly sent from Europe, or other places abroad, should advise their correspondents to adopt the above sugges

In an introduction to this volume by Mr. John W. Dulles he says: "Its readers will find that it is a book of no ordinary merit. The characteristics by which it is specially marked are broad learning, shown in results rather than by processes; a remarkable knowledge of the Scriptures, by which light is made to concentrate upon the text under consideration from a multitude of related passages; and an intense fervor, enlightened by a rare spiritual insight.'
