ADMADALK, a Novel : By Wllkio Col'inB. For sale by
Mr. K (I Courtenay, Uroad Btroot.
Thero aro thousands of people, this day, who road
nothing but novels. Their tuste is so vitiated by a Bur

The wide-felt demand for reading of this kind bas do

such na can bo marshalled by no other branch of litera

(to say nothing hero of France mid Germany) can boast,
we will not even venturo to goon. BULWKII, JAMES,

would be understood to hold all of these in the samo
Tank and estimation, but wo give- these tho first place?

ARAM BKDE, COLLINS, mid othors. But wo do not deem
such uuc.ert.itn, fitful light a stifll lout claim to count
their authors amoug the llxcd stars. They aro usnally
known as '-sensation -vrili-rs," and largely depend upon
an orces? of "machinery" and a superabundance of
meretricious omarucut for the popular patronage to
which, upon the strict principles of art, they could lay
At the head of tho long list of sensation writors wo
would placo tho nitino of Mr. WILKI? COLLINS. His
bookd aro fully as interesting (and much less injurious)
se any others of this class with which w? aro acquaint
ed. Polished and vigorous in his Btyle, easy and grace
ful in bia narrative, and an artint in description, ho
avoids the faults which m much offend good tasto in tho
writings of Miss Bn.vrro?i.
"Armadalo," tho boik boforo us, is a fine norol of ita
description, well worth reading. Xhs interest is well
sustained from the first page to the last.
Tho story is complicated, and loses much of its ln
torcst by being read in a serial form, lu all Mr. OOL
XTNS' Horis we Und a smooth, olly, wicked man or
woman-pcrhapB both-who inspires U9 to a wouduriul
degree, with horror, and who has yot committed no very
dreadful criuio. Such is the Itallau Count in the "Wo
man in White," and Mrs. Oldershaw lu "Armadale."
We have seldom mot with a moro strongly drawn
character thau that of tho Count; and ko is far superior
to villain No. 2, OB we find her in "Armadale;" but tho
other personages in this story fully equal any thiug Mr.
COLLINS lins yet produced. Thoy aro developed lu tho
moBt ektliul and elaborate manner. Lydia G wilt will
toko her placo In tho portrait gallery of fiction.
Surrounded by a halo of lurid light, soo Is a powerful
conception, and well sustained, from her wrotcbod child
hood to hortragloonil, throwing the glamor of ber spoils
over the render as she does over htr victims.
Intellectual, beautiful, deadly, ve'ionious-she is that
type of woman which, In her nature, partakes so largely
of the snake, nud which, wo aro happy to say, is moro
coamon lu fiction than la real Ufo.
Ihe plot of the story hinges on thore being two

which will causo bim to become tho mnrdorer of lila
friend, tho son of the man who perished by his fathor'a
hand. But wo will not enter further into thostiry
The remainder can only bo learned with any dog reo of
pleasure from the book itself.
Mr. COLLINS always fails in ona thing, and that Is, to
enlist the sympathy of his roadors In behilf of his
heroes and heroines. Tho interest is obsorblng. often
startling. But wo foci no affection towards thoso ho
paints In such strong colors. Wo do not feel, on laying
down his books, sa if we had parted from dear old
familiar friends, cs is sometimes the caso, after reading
the productions of a favorite author; and the reason of
this is that In the wholo range of his characters he has
never deseribed ono sympathetic loving true woman,
not one noble whole-soulod man. This does not say
much for tho kindly teollng and sympathy of tue au
thor. He may share In the joys and sorrows of mon
kind, but If BO, tboro Is nothing to show it lu his novols.

who is now in Canada, is to provent his being pardoned

G tamar It's Policy Poreihadowcd by Him
Count BISMARK, tho Prussian Primo Minister, has
been ono of tho ohlof instruments in bringing on tho
war between Prussia and Austria. Ho has long_beeu
powor in Ciri|c.,.Yiicllfl of tbo Fodol? Diet As long ago'
as May, 1859. when be was Prussian Minister to Russia,
he wroto a loiter to a friend, lu which ho gave It as tho
resultof eight years'service as Prussian delegate to the
Diet, that Austria was too much favored there, at the
expense of Prussia. Ho continues :
To develop tho confederation with Austria for its hoad
is tho natural objector tho policy of the Gorman Prince?
and tholr Ministers. This, In tholr view, can bo
achieved only ot tho coat of Prussia, and l8 necosaarlly
aimed agalnat Prussia, so long as Prussia will not con
floe herself to tho useful task of securing her confede
rates against too groit an extension of Austria's In
fluence and to bear, with never tiring i leasantness and
submission to tho majority, tho disproportion of hor
duties to hor rights In the confederation. The tendoncy
of tho policy of the middle States will recur with the ac
tivity of tho magnetic needle after temporal disturbance
bec m?e it ia not tho willful product of singlo circum
stances or persons, but tho natural and necessary 10
sults of the Federal relation of the smaller States. Wo
havo no means within the given Federal compacts to
arrange ourselves with It permanently and satisfactorily.
I may, perhaps, go too far, if I express tho opinion
that wo ought to use overy legitimate opportunity, offer
ed ua by our confederates, to obtain auch a revision of
our mutual rclatlone aa Prussia needs, that ahe may
permanently live ?i regulir intercourse with tho smaller
German Slates. Wo shonld take up the glovo at once,
and not view it a misfortune, but ac the progress to tho
crisis of improvement, if a majority at Frankfort adopts
a resolve which we consider unauthorized, a willful
chango of tho object of confederaiion, and a breach of
the compacts. The moro marked this broach would be
tho bettor. In Austria, France, Russia, wo may not
again meet with conditions so favoroblo to allow us an
amelioration of our condition in Germany, and our con
federates aro Ojti the best way to give ua Just cauBo for it,
without our helping thom on. ? * * ?*
I soe in our Fedoral relations a Boro for Prussia,
which sooner or later wo will havo Jo remedy ferra et
igni twith iron and blood), unloss we procoed lo an easy
cure betimoB and In favorablo season. If to-day the
Conf?d?ration were to bo Bimply abolished, without
putting anything olse in lu place, I bolievo Uiat on the
basis of this negativo achievement better and more
natural relations of Prussia to hor Gorman neighbors
would develop themselves.
It will be Boon from tho abovo that atven years ago
BisMAHK waa anxious for an opportunity to humble
Austria, and bring the smaller German powers into
closer subservience to Prussia. For this he is willing
to destroy thousands of lives and desolate Germany.
Ho may light the Aro, but who shall extinguish it ?

GEBBIT SMITH ON THE Tniax, OF Ma. DAVIS -Gerrit
Smith has published a letter to Chief-Justice Ohaso upon
tho proposed trial of Jefferson Davis. He denies tho
right of the government to try any Confederate In tho
civil courts in tho present mixed condition, aa he con
siders it, of peace and war, but in which war predomi
nates. He alludes with severity to this anomalous stite
and argues that military couria only are In order, and
that they can tako cognizance only of violations of the
i?t?r.I!ftt,?n?i l51 r?B?latlI>8 hostllilioa. He contends
that the United States Government is bound to accord
to (bo ConffcderutOB all the benefits of the laws of war
undor which the charge of treason is an absurdity. He
holds, too, that the charge of treason will bo oqually in
applicable after peaco Is declared and in the civil courts
and that tbe faith of the North is pledged against it- and
ho also dwells upon the Injustice of victimizing a fow
where, if any aro guilty, aliare equally BO. Ho admits
that tho constitution hal left in doubt tho nutation
which formed the ISMIC of the war, and that tho South
ern .psoplo had omlnent authority for their own opinion
Ho thon speaks forcibly of the demands of humanity lu
the futuro course of tho government; but holds, never
theless, that as tho conqueror It may dispose of tho con
quered lu snob way as it chooao.
THE WAY IO'AVOID CALUMNY.-"!! any ono speaks 111
jf theo, said hpictetus, ?consider whether ho both
truth on his side; and if so, reform thyself, that his
ensures may not affect theo." When Anaximander

hat an Intimst* Mond of his had spoken detractingly
ifhlia, he said: "I am sura ho would not do It if lie
isd not sonio reason for It." This is the surest as well
m the noblest way of drawing the sting out of a ro

TESTIMONY OF RECOMMENDATIONS
From Medical gentlemen. Professors of tho highest

CHARLESTON. S. 0., May 28tb, 1866.
I have examined a great variety of Glasses manufac
tured by Proftx-sor 21. InmsnAIIDT, and in justice to the
Professor must say, that his GUIHHCB aro of a superior
quality, adapted to meet the wants of altnont ovory eye,

I cheerfully concur ia tho opinion abovo expressed ol
tho value of Profenpor BKHHHABDTS' Gltsaoa, and their
adaptability to all defects of vision, and alto to his skill
and judgment in adapting tbo glass to each special Im
perfection. II. W. DESAOSSURE, M. D.
CHARLESTON, S. C, May 28tb, 1866.
I do most willingly bear my testimony in favor of the
superiority of the Australian Crystal-single and dou
ble vision spectacles ovtr all other kinds. Thoy are?
constructed upon the best established and uudor?*?3?
principles of optics, omi their adaptation to tb' uliman
eye in it ? di tie rent condition? of vision is -i perfect, 88
to render sight cosy without effort. In my opinion,
none others should bo used since tho eyes once used to
thoso do not f eera to grow oki, and by having a focus
at any point of the surfuco, they appear to rest o'er tho
eyes to their youthful energy.

I have examined Professor BKUMIAUDTS' very com
plete assortment of Spectacles aud Lenses. They are
better adopted than any I buvo before se> n to remedy
the imperfection of vision that can bo hcuefltted by the
Ufe of Ulnsses. The purcneB? and clearness of the Crys
