NASH, — AGENTS FOR — fiiphole’ lliist and Am Tight Wrought Iron Furnaces I THE invention of the WROUGHT IRON FUR NACE, was the result of a thorough and pains takins investigation by Dr. James R. Nichols, Ed itor of the Boston Journal ot Chemistry, into the ob jections or defects in nearly all the Hot Air Furnaces now in use. During the past three years Five Hun dred have been sold. They have proved competent to supply a delightful, pure current of wrrra air to Churches, Stores, School Houses and Dwellings, and in every olace where used they have been a perfect success and given entire satisfaction. The great distinguishing features of this Furnace, arc its Simplicity of Construct km, the perfect sale guards against the passage of Dust and deleterious coal gases into the rooms warmed by it. The heat radiating surfaces are mado of Boiler Iron, rivited together in the same manner as Siea n J oilers, ana not a particle ot gas or dust can p ss through. The original of this Furnace was constructed three years ago by Dr. Nic; ols, for private use, as a safeguard against those infractions of the laws of health to which be himself ns well as others were subjected by the use c f Hot Air Fu naces. Dr Nichols says with three years use of my Furnace I am satisfied that no 1 deleterious gases or‘dust can flow into the rooms j from it. In the NICHOLS WROUGHT IRON FURNACE, we have a coal burning device much cheaper than I any Steam Apparatus, less troublesome, one which j supplies air as pure and healthful as that from Steam or hot water. It does away with all the seri ous objections which have existed against Hot Air Furnaces and its sanitary advai faces are such as to commend it to the attention :f all intelligent House owners and heads of Kami ies.

By Urt M*ry C'lrnmrr inn. Among the women who, according to their various natures and circumstances, more or less wisely and well, have advocated the free dom and development of woman — Mr». Mary Clemmer Ames is deservedly eminent. Among women who clamor like Mcenads, who scorn the gracious privileges which are their own, and grasp wi;h uncertain bands the “rights-’ that are to render them a poor imitation of man; among women made bitter by many and undoubted wrongs, who would teach their sisters the terrible lesson of uni versal distrust; among women filled with vague aspirations for an indefinable liberty, while their nearest duties are left unfulfilled— among all these, Mrs Ames stands steadfast as a star. Her sweet, persuasive wisdom, her sympa thy with every fellow creature, her clear, pure and tender thought, and the rich treasures that the years have brought her of life and love and tears and joy—all are given freely to the cause for which she works—the cause of a world where man i« king and woman is queen. The style of Mrs. Ames is poetic; some time:; touchingly pathetic, sometimes bright and epigrammatic; always refined, and ap propriate to its subject, whether grave or gay. The present volume, which is a collec tion of essays on various topics, presents very favorably the author’s admirable traits. In the first four of these chapters, peculiarly enjoyable is her appreciation ot scenery, not only in its visible phases, hut its more subtle intention—the arriere pensee of Nature, if we may say so. Her eye is quick to not* and her pen ready to portray the ever chang ing moods of land and sea, the aerial lights and shadows, while she rests joyfhlly among the grasses, watching the busy insects, each of jrhich enlists her liking and sympathy for himself and his affairs. The lake-land of Northern Vermont, the scene of one of the sketches to which we refer, is for Mrs. Ames, touched with tender memories of her friend Alice Cary who, in the last summer of her life, was brought there; and of whom Mrs, Ames writes sadly: Hers, from the beginning, was the fatal mis take of so many brain-workers—that all lime given to refreshment and rest is so much taken from the results of labor; forgetting, or not re alizing, that the finer the instrument, the more fatal the effects of uuduo strain, the more im perative the necessity of avoiding the over wear and the perpetual jar of discordant con ditions, forgettiug, also, that tbe rarest flower ing of the brain has its root in silence and beauty, and rest. Her description of Indian Summer In Vir ginia paints all its passionate glory—but through a mist, such as hangs over the land in those days. A mist of tears for the brav* young lives that she watched and tended not many years ago, when “man mocked th* peace of God with the impotence of war”—a mist whose gray folds are yet struck with golden light. Knowledge of rcharacter, generous judg ment aud sympathetic insight characterize Mrs. Ames’s sketches of the men and women whom she has selected as her subjects. “Physical Basis of Statesmanship” is an ex ceediugly able and powerful essay, represent ing the importance of the physical forces by which the mental and moral ones are sus tained. The latter portion of the volume is chiefly devoted to the consideration of the Question, of woman’s rights and wrongs. Animated aud feminine feeling and sound, practical sense, these essays cannot fail of the best re sults. Mrs. Ames emphasizes the dignity of woman's work, the need that it be perfectly , done, all its requirements fulfilled, before any claim for a different sphere be urged. She plainly aud wisely says: “It is perfectly natural, if a man sees that the woman he knows best has reached no high standard of excellence in the arts pe culiarly her own, that he should doubt the capacity of ail women to fill the higher call ings which, even now, open but a contested sphere to their ambition and effort.” On another page we find this suggestive sentence: “It is not the want of native pow er, nor the w ant of opportunity, nor the en vious prejudice of men, which debars women from the places of independence which they covet, so much as it is their own lack of ac curate knowledge, o< (acuities disciplined to special uses.” Her chapter on “Kitchens,” a loving, failhfu) description of a grandmother's kitch en, is filled—as by the perfume of old-fash ioned flowers of quaint, homely names— with the sense of tender, surrounding care and the memories and associations that can never wholly leave one who has known what it is to have a real “home.” The warm heart and vigorous hand of Mrs. Ames have inspired aud written this earnest and beautiful work. To the book-reviewer, falls the pleasant task of reading it, pointing out a few of its many merits, aud commend ing it most cordially and entirely to the pub lic—as a book, high and sincere in its alms, able in its execution and charming in its style. Published by Hurd & Houghton, Boston. For sale by Loring, Short & Harmon. Foods. By Edward Miniih, fl. D., F. H. *• This is the third volume of the Internation al Scientific Series, and ably sustains the rep utation gained by the preceding volumes. The author, a physician and writer of emi nence has devoted especial attention to the question of foods, and has succeeded in mak ing a book which, while it is easily compre hensible by the unscientific, is a substantial contribution to the knowledge of the subject. Most people know very little about their foods; but all can here find interesting de scriptions of what they eat and drink and breathe. A book of this kind has long been needed, aud we can heartily recommend thla as reliable and attractive. The writer prom ises to take up the subject of Diels in another i volume, and we shall await its appearance with much interest. For sale by Bailey & Noye». The North American Review. The last number of our standard American quarterly is one of more than ordinary at tractiveness to the avei age reader, having less than the usual number of abstruse essays, anil a greater proportion of papers on subjects of universal interest. Most prominent are thoughtful articles on Modern Medicine, the Proposed changes in the Telegraphic System, and Fires and Fire departments. Among the critical notices is a very appro ciative review of Paine’s St. Peter, with re gard to which we cannot help thinking that the writer is extiaordinarily snobbish, even tor a Boston man, in entirely ignoring the very perfect rendering of the oratorio by our Haydn Association—a performance which wo,n enthusiastic praises from the best musi cal critics in the land, and would seem to reoj der unnecessary his remark that the “great artistic merits of the work demand public rec ognition.” To the Harbor Commissioners ol Portland. ‘'lSSid«r»d Director, of Maine Wharf, by W. w.
