This has been difficult to accomplish, because there are but' two or three such works in existence written in popular style, at the same time involving a reasonable degree "of accuracy and completeness. K We have secured the history of tho Great Rebellion, b' J. T. Headley, with whose graphic style our readers are already familiar, as he is the au thor of Napoleon and His Marshals, the work which we have been run ning in our columns for some time. The Great Rebellion comes in two large volumes of over 1,000 pagei, large ovo. size, printed in clear type, and profusely illustrated with portraits and battle scenes. Hereto fore this work has Bold by subscription at $7 for the set We are the first to offer it in a popular 'edition. The text of the author is complete and un abridgcd,and the only substantial difference is that it is in leatherette binding 'instead of boards. Mr. Ileadly in treatment of tho subject takes up the preliminary conspiracy by means of which the authors of the rebellion sought to take the Southern States out of the Union; the struggles in Congress over The extension of slavery, 'and the admission of Kansas as a free State, and finally passes on to the firing on Fort Sumter, and the tremendous events which followed. All tho campaigns of the war arc carefully explained and the battles described. Every one of our readers who served in tho war for tho Union will find depicted scenes and incidents in which ho personally participated. The work has the merit of being logical history, without being abstruse. It is written in that masterful stylo for which Mr. Headly is famous. ,The 'first volurno covers the preliminaries and 18 months of the fvar.s The second takes up the narra tive beginning with the operations of J the 'Army of the Potomac in the Sum mer of 1SG2, and carrying the story forward until the surrender of Lee at Appomattox and the capitulation of Johnston put an end to the fighting. It is a standard work which should bo in every American library.
