OrB Own AnmoRa. Thrrp has trrown up re
cently in our city a deference to the writers of
New York which is gradually vcrrrirjr into nyco
jhancy. Whatever tlie New York editors say Is
accepted m truth; whatever tho New YorK
authors write is read with avidity: whatever her
publishers Ifsuc is at once considered a stand
ard. We have frequently controverted tha Idea
that the publications of any houses are better
than those of our own. Wc have often contended
that, considering tho inferior facilities of the
Juaker City, 6he often receives news ahead of
the metropolis. Let us nor mention wnat tho
writers of Philadelphia hnve recently douo or
purpose shortly to do.
William V. MoKean, Esq., editor of the Lsiyer,
lias nearly completed the third volume
of the "Annual Register." of which he has had
charge since the scheme was designed. It 13
rumored also that ho has in courso of prepara
tion a work relative to some of the details of
the late war. There is no one better tittod to
perform tho task of treating of recent cvnts
than Mr. MeKean. For years he has made bucd
details a specialty, and is most thoroughly
pouted in all tho statistics and miuuUic relative
to important battles, political or martial, and the
influence they exerted on the national history.
Thompson Wcstcott, Esq., editor of tho Sun
dntl Itifjmtrti, has recently laid before the" pu'dic
a work, published by Hibieription, entitled the
"Test Oaths of the Revolution..1' Tno history of
the production is interi-sllnc;. A few years sluce,
an old document was found among a mass of
waste paper, and which was ordered to be sol 1
by the Recorder of DepeK It proved to be the
test oath which each Pennsylvania citizen of
doubtful loyalty was compelled to Men at tho
conclusion of the war of 177. To it was ap
pended thousands of signatures. It were sold to
a publisher, who determined to issue it in book
form, and called on Mr. Westcott for a history ot
Ihe oaths as an introduction. A better selection
could not have been made, as there Is not a gen
tleman In our icity who can surpass him in a
familiarity with our municipal lore. The result
is;a delightful and Instructive work, singularly
appropriate to our own times. We will refer to
it on some future occasion.
The autlior has been for years directing his
time and talents to the preparation of a "History
of Philadclphia."IIe has already brought it down
to the opening year of the century. We earnestly
hope that he will conclude his labors, and give
onr citizens an opportunity of securing a copy
of an authentic and complete history of Phila
delphia. The annals of Watson are Interesting,
but are so disjointed as to lose half their value.
Mr. Westcott's work will bo lull, extensive, and
interesting, and will fill a void in our libraries.
Speaking on the subject of works on munici
pal history, we may refer to an interesting little
pamphlet by Casper Soiider, Jr., of the Bulletin,
on "Jarpentcrs' Hall." It is an cstraet from
his "History of Chesnut Street," and has been
published in aid of the fair for the "Soldiers' and
Bailors' Home." We have just emughof the
extracts given to make ub long for a popular edi
tion' of this valuable record of our leading
Among the members of the Press Club who
are about issuing works we may mention Emer
son Bennett,' Esq., the popular novelist. II9 is
about to publish another ofjhis thrilling Western
stories, in which daring alveutare and muscular
activity are bo admirably displayed. We do not
know which to admire most, the originality of
situation or the easy fluency of expression which
characterizes all ol Mr. Bennett's works. It is
entitled "The Phantom of the Forest," and will
Appear as a serial in the Saturday Evening Post.
1 Apropos of works forthcoming from members
of the Philadelphia press, we may mention two
promised volumes of poems, one from A. E. Lan
caster, Esq., and the other from Mr. Kane O'on.

?he attractive nature ot the productions.
Dr. R. Shelton Mackenzie, literary critic of
the Press, has in course of preparation a volume
of "Personal Reminiscences," of the great men

In connection with reminiscences, we may men
tion appropriately that another series ot recol
lections, although different from those of Dr.
Mackenzie, will shortly appear. We refer to the

Having travelled all over Europe and America,
and, probably, Africa and the Sandwich Islands,
for 1 he last thirty years, it is impossible that
the Signor should not have had many comical ad
ventures. These he has constantly jotted down
in a diary, until at last he has volumes of the
most amusing anecdotes in his manuscript re
cord. Of these he is selecting the best,
and will shortly lay them before our reading
community. He has read us a nitmber of these
recollections, and we can vouch for their being
both unique and racy. His style is piquant and
The work from the presses of J. R. Llppincott
& Co., entitled "Poetical Tributes to the Memory
of Abraham Lincoln," which has had so exten
hive a sale, is a compilation of J. N. Plotz, Esq.,
of Philadelphia. It deserves all the patronage it
Henry B. Hirst, Esq., the author of "Endy
onion," is prepanng a third edition of that work.
The reputation which It acquired as one of the
finest poetical efforts of our native authors, has
completely exhausted the first two editions. In
the next, in addition to the revised work, will
be found the tributes of later date, including
those to President Lincoln, J. Barclay Harding,
Esq., General Birney, and others. It will proba
bly be ready by February.
Mr. C. D. tiardette has had'bis poetlcel works
issued in book form, by Bunce & Huntingdon, ot
New York, under tho title of "The Fire Fiend,
and other Poems." To deny to this author
ability would be unjust, but we are perfectly
free to question his literary power. We will
tpcak in detail of the book In a few days.
We regret to lose from our circle Rev. C. W.
Denuison, tha well-known author of a number of
biographies, including those of Sheridan'and
Grant. He sail's for Great Britain, to establish in
London a weekly journal devofed to American
interests. It Is to be called The Republican, and
will contain sixteen pages, in the form of the
New York Albion. Such a publication is much
needed, and our Keverend friend has our best
wishes for success. He will aUo correspond with
papers in Boston, New York, and our own city,

as to avoid the inconvemouce of reading ibe libretto

furnace was a total wreck, and the wood-work
on fire. Of four boilers only ono remained
whole, and that was carried olf about one hun
dred yards. Two were bursted completely. The
half of one was carried about five hundred yards
into a neighboring field, and the other was
lodged against a large wagon, demolishing it
