The Century for May commences
with an edition of 250,000 copies, with
a promise of more before the demand
ceases. There is no doubt but that
the Century has, at last, succeeded in
placing itself at the head of the world's
illustrated )opu!ar magazines, not only
in excellence of illustration and literary
matter, but in the length of its sub
scription lists as well. A maganne
with ocr a million readers, it has In
come a power in shaping the literary
and artistic taste of Americans, and Its
influence is felt and recognized through
out the English shaking world. Nor
is it sa)ing too much to affirm that
American magazine advancement
during the las! fifty ) cars has remodeled
and rauscd great improvement in the
ap)carance and enterprise of European,
and csccially of Lnglish periodical
literature. A happy mean between the
dry and heavy matter of the English
Quarterlies and the too light nature of
popular literature has been attained by
American magazines, and csjiecially by
the Century, which has done much to
bring alwut this resolution in current
The present number of the Century
opens with a ortrait of General George
B. McClellan, which accompanies the
war pacron Manassas to Seven i'incs,
written by Joseph M Johnston, the
confederate general. The war paper is
prccccdcd by the Incidents of- the
flattie of Manassas, containing a map ol
the Hull Run battle field, etc., written
by John 1). Imbodcn. 'the main
paper, on Manassas to Soen Pines,
constitutes a reply to Jefferson Davis
and includes descriptions of the two
battles fought at Hull Hun and Seven
I'incs, respectively. The Scrond Day
at Seven I'incs is contributed by Gus
tavus W Smith; Recollections of a
Private, by Warren I.ce doss ; and The
Peninsular Campaign of May and
Jjlne, 1862, by General George It.
McClellan. The whole is concluded
with Memoranda Notes on the Civil
War, and each paper is graphically
illustrated and explained with sketches,
portraits, maps of the different battle
fields, sections of country, etc.
The New Orleans Exposition is his
torically and descriptively written up by
Eugene V. Smallcy, with numerous
illustrations by Messrs. E. W. Kcmble
and C. J Meeker.
Typical Dogs is a series of short
articles wherein the chief points and
canine traits of the Mastiff, the St.
Bernard, the bull dog, the bull-terrier,
the grc) hound and the Chesapeake
duck-dog arc summed up by different
writers with critical care. Each paper
is accompanied with a woodcut of a
This number contains two articles
worthy of extended notice, but our
space forbids ; suffice it to say that
they are deserving of careful perusal
and will amply repay a second reading
'the papers, referred to are Whitticr,
by the poet, Edmund C Stcdman , and
Immortality and Modern Thought, by
T. T. Munger Mr. Stedman treats
the life, times and work of Whitticr in
his usual comprehensive, critical and
comparative st)le, throwing much light
upon the surroundings of the Quaker
bard and giving numerous extracts
illustrative of Whittier's imagination
and fancy. Mr. Munger critically ex
amines into the theories of the doctrine
of immortality and speaks of the
" apparent futility that has attracted all
efforts to prove the immortality of man
springs largely from the fact that a
sense of immortality " as "an achieve
ment in morals, and not an inference
drawn by logical processes from the
nature of things," and adds, " It is not
a demonstration to, or by, the reason,
but a conviction gained through the
spirit in the process of human lite." It
is pleasing to see we have writers who
are at last willing to give these ab
struse subjects popular treatment, so
that the masses can understand the
arguments pro and con, and partially
grasp, at least, the mental foundation
upon which is buildcd this hope of im
mortality in man.
One of the most interesting papers
in the number is entitled Greeley at
Cape Sabine, by Ensign Charles II.
Hallow of the U. S. Navy. The
article is illustrated with maps, and
gives a facsimile of the first page of a
four-page hektograph newspaper printed
at Fort Conger. The paper treats in
detail of the Greeley relief expedition
and includes the following sub-heads:
The first tidings of Greeley; The
Rescue; On the Thetis; Cape Clay;
bcrving out Provisions; 'lhe Uraves;
Why Greeley did not cross Smith
Sound; and 'I he Return Home.
The jKc'ry for May falls below the
Century standard, with the exception
of The Parting of Uman and llaadin,
by John Vance Cheney, which is
graphically and powerfully portraed in
a manner worthy of Sw mourns pen.
Haricr's magazine for May is hardly
up to its usual standard; it may be,
however, that it does not stand a com
parison with the Century as it used to,
or it may be that individual taste has
hardened into prejudice which causes
us to deem it not what it once was, the
lead 1 nt Aiueircati'iiiagazme.
-Spilh'g Ulossoms is the frontispiece,
engraved by King I torn a drawing by
Howard I'vlc. The work is delicately
executed and the picture represents an
aesthetic-looking young lady standing
with her head and shoulders embowered
within a cloud of spring blossoms, her
self the sweetest flower of them all.
Anion); illustrated articles there is a
quaint and interesting paper entitled
KspanoU and its Environs, by Dirge
Harrison. Espafiola is one of thoe
queer southwestern cities situated on
the river Rio Grande, about thirty miles
from Santa I'e and sixty miles south of
the Colorado State line. The article is
full of incidents, and the descriptive part
is arranged in such a manner that it par
takes of the interest of a story well told.
Among the illustrations will be found, a
picture of the oldest church in America,
adobe houses, an old Mexican chapel
Jjy moonlight, etc.
We may prate as we will of the
utilitarian tendencies of the present
age, and turn ourselves in vain to tin
practical results of our science and
philosophy, and ct we always feel a
sense ot keen enjoyment when we open
the pages of our pajKis and magazines,
which are published reflections of our
ever) -day life, and find that some poet
has condensed our work-away world,
its passions, its ambitions and its dis
appointments into a song of love that
wakes a chord in every heart and
ennobles us with a divine (ouch of sym
pathy despite our distorted nature and
life's practical cares. The following
sonnet, by Charles L. Hildteth, blooms
in a desert of prose like a pure white
flower with a damask heart.

The Overland Monthly for May
retains its reputation of being the most
readable of the western magazines; in
fact, it comKses favorably with any
American magazine as far as substance
is concerned, and if it were illustrated
would deserve national patronage and
reputation. '1 he selection of matter is
always excellent, and the moderate
length of the articles gives variety and
avoids tediousness. 'I he Overland is
typical of western civilization and re
flects the semi critical and semi
legendary conditions of western life
which seem like the blending of the
world of romance with the world of
higher art and culture.
'the several articles relating to the
west will be found, as all sketches of
the Pacific slope and Mexico always
arc, exceedingly interesting. Rambles
in the Rockies, by Edwards Roberts,
barely touches upon a field of descrip
tive literature which, we hope, will be
impoved and dcvcloed by other
writers as well; 'lhe Priest's Tale, by
Louise P. Heaven, is a well-told
episode of western days, half wrapped
in mystery and covered with the som
brero of Mexican romance, A Ramble
in the Foothills, by Dagmar Mariagcr,
is a true little sketch of a day spent
where nature seems most beautiful, and
will be recognized and appreciated by
all who have explored the foothills of
California and Mexico; and the Ballad
of the North-Wind, by Alfred A.
Wheeler, describes picturesquely and
powerfully the chase of the north-wind
over hill and dale until he at last
retires to the rocky steeps of Mount
The leading paper of the Overland
for May is entitled The Essential Prin
ciple of Poetic Art, written by G. II.
Howison, and may be considered a
continuation of Professor Le Contc's
paper on the General Principles of Art
and their Application to the Novel,
printed in the April number. The
paper will bear careful reading and
close examination, and will amply
repay those interested in poetic art to
analyze and practically apply to future
work the principles set forth. The
style of the article forcibly reminds one
of the days of the Lake poets, and the
fine comparisons and distinctions in
the beautiful of the art poetic recalls
the manner and critical skill of Leigh
There is a poem in the number en
titled Hcrgamo, written by W. Win
throp, which deserves to be singled out
from the run of magazine verse. It is
a quaint ballad of 14 stanzas, descrq
tive of this old Italian town. In read
ing it one can but notice with delight
the beautiful climax of descriptive
writing found in the last four stanzas,
as follows ,
Hard by, the Gallery ; thither came
Rare footstep , there I learned to know
Old matter half forgot by fame,
Cremona born or of llcrgaino.

The North American Review for the
month of May impresses one favorably
upon glancing over the table of con
tents, and upon perusal becomes so
deeply interesting that a person with a
turn for literature is loath to lay it
down until it is finished. This Review
has long stood first in the field of
American thought, and is a critical and
fair exponent of the developement of
civilization in the western hemisphere.
I he opening paer, entitled Has Chris
tianity Benefitted Woman ? consists of
two articles written respectively by
Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the Right
Rev. J. L. Spalding, D.D., Bishop of
Peoria, who discuss the extremes of the
question on what would seem, to the
philosophical student of history, the
narrow grounds of partizan prejudice.
For instance, Elizabeth Cady Stanton
asserts that "all religions thus far have
taught the headship and sucriority of
man, the inferiority and subordination
of woman," while the Rev. Mr. Spalding
cites all the disabilities woman was
subject to in the early and pagan ages
to prove that all her advantages have
sprung from the Christian religion.
Such arguments, to say the least, are
narrow- and illogical, and will throw- but
little, if any, light on these great ques
tions which modern civilization is con
stantly presenting for investigation, so
long as they arc viewed from sectarian
standpoints, social, political or religious.
We fully agree with Rev. Mr. Spalding
when he says that "the best interests
of mankind, of the church and the
state, will be served by widening and
strengthening woman's influence," but
he will find few who have turned over
the pages of the world's thought and
history who will agree to his assertion
that "the ancient civilization perished
because woman was degraded, ano, ours
win be perpetuated by a pure, thiev
ing, self-reverent and enlightened
womanhood." The student of history
never lavs an unctions toneralitv to hit
soul while the hand of destiny points
into the unknown future.
The literary reputation of the Review-
is well sustained. Success in Fiction,
by 'James Payn, contains many useful
hints to those who scribble or who
would "hive their sweet thoughts for
putting into books," and the question
of What is Academic Freedom? is
treated in a logical and comprehensive
style by Andrew- F. West. But, by far,
the best and most powerfully, nay,
grandly written production in the num
ber is a poem of over four hundred
lines, entitled The New Buddha, by
Robert Buchanan, the Scottish poet.
Space fotbids a review of this tine
kh.'iu, which must be read and re-read
to be fully appreciated. It treats of
the new- Buddha personified in Arthur
Schopenhauer, and sets forth the prin
ciples of the Pessimistic philosophy in
sharp antithesis against the ideal and
spiritual nature of man. The remain
ing articles of the number arc Indus
trial Cooperation, by David Dudley
Field ; Why Crime U Increasing, by J,
L. Pickard; and Superstition in English
