THE DA1LT TELEGltA Pll PHILADELPHIA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1870.
usiixiATaiis. ax vis w or new books. Porter A Cofttcs semi ni tbe following Be j ublicfttions: "The Cniklren's Crusade," by George Za lr'mkie Gray, published by ' llnrcl t llough too, is on exhaustive account of one of the most curious religious epidemics of the Mid dle Ages. "When crusade after crusade bad been organized for the rescue of the holy sepul chre from the bands of the Saracens, and re peated failures had cooled the ardor of tho warriors of Europe, tbe children of France and Germany became suddenly inspired with tbe idea that they were destined to accom plish what the armies of Christendom had failed to perform. The accounts that have torn down to us of this remarkable move ment are so few and so obscure that the chil dren's crusade has generally been regarded as one of the myths of the Middle Ages. There appears to be substantial evidence, however, that such movement did aotually occur about the commencement of the thirteenth enhiry, and the volume before us is the re sult of a careful search for facts in the pages of old chroniclers who have set down, with various additions from their own imagina tion, what they had seen or heard with regird to it. Mr. Gray appears to have performed bis work thoroughly, to have as far as pos sible separated fact from fiction, and ia fast to have exhausted the subject. He gives omplete sketches of the organization of the two German and one French army of children who set out under different leadors, confi dent in the, expectation that the sea would open before them and offer them a pathway to Palestine, where their hymos and spiritual songs would pro lace a vastly different effect upon the infi dels than the swords of the warriors were able to do. Mr. Gray traces the march of the three armies, their discomfiture, disorganiza tion, and return, with great exaotness, anl he combines with the main features of his narrative much information about the condition of Europe in the thirteenth century that will enable the reader to understand how such an episode as the children's crusade was possible. With the exception of a tendency at times to mere sermonizing, tho work is written in attractive style the author evidently being in hearty sympathy with his subject, and we ommend it to the notice of our readers as a most curious and interesting record. The book is handsomely printed, and is bound in elegant and appropriate style suitable for tho holiday season. "At Last," by Marion Tlarland, published by Carleton, is a new novel by a popalar writer, who has a large circle of admirers. "At Last" is an interesting story, with a well constructed plot and some admirably drawn characters. It will be found fully as enter taining as any of the author's previous works. "Adrift with a Vengeance," by Kinahan Cornwallis, also from the press of Carleton, is a story of adventure which contains many exciting incidents! and some highly graphic descriptions of scenery and life in all parts of the world. Mr. Cornwallis, who is well known as the editor of the New York Albion, is an able writer, and in "Adrift with a Ven geance" he has produced a very interesting story, that is full of life and animation from first to last. From J. B. Lippincott & Co. we have received the following of Lee & Shepard's recent publications: "Double Play: or, How Joe ITrdy Chose nil Friends," by William Everett, is a story for boys written in the atyle that boys ad mire. Ik is interesting in itself, and is full of that hearty appreciation of boyish tastes and feelings that will appeal in the strongest manner to the sympathies of the rising generation of American citizens. The second volume of the series entitled "The Tone Masters" by Charles Barnard, contains biographical sketches of H-tnddl and Haydn, which are writton especially with view of engaging the attention of young readers and inspiring them with a love for musical art. Handel and Haydn are two great names in the annals of muuic, and young people will be all the readier to listen appreciatively to their compositions after reading such interesting summaries of their lives as are contained in the volume be fore us. I. Kohler, No. 202 North Fourth street, Bends lis a very beautiful little volume con taining the original text of Burger's famous ballad of "Lenore" and a translation by Henry D. Wireman. The version is in the came metre as tbe original, but while ad mitting the force of tbe arguments advanced by Mr. Wireman is his preface for such treat ment, we are forced to confess that his trans lation, while it retains the form, has less of the spirit of Burger's poem than some that have taken greater liberties with its outward shape. This translation possesses many merits, however, and the beautiful manner in which it is printed and bound makes it a very elegant gift book for the holiday season. From A. H. Hubbard, No. 403 Chesout street, we have received "Belden, the White Chief," edited by General James 8. Brisbin, U. S. A. Published by C. F. Vent, Cincin nati and New York. This work ia a record of twelve years of adventure among the Indians of the Plains from 1658 to 1870 aud ia Belden's own narrative, rewritten and put into shape by General Brisbin, without mate rial Alteration. Belden's career has been a remarkable one, and he Las distinguished himself as a trapper and hunter among the Indians, and subsequently as a soldier, 83 ) it, and guide while holding a commission in the regular army. The work before us, which gives a very complete narrative of the events f his life, is full of exciting advent areu and most Interesting descriptions of life upon the great plains of the Far West, and it will bo ure of finding numerous readers among both old and young. The following description of an Indian village will give an idea of the btyle of the book: Que can Lave no appreciative idea of an Indian village unlets be has been permitted to rone across Uie prairie through a hot summer's mid, and suddenly discovers one nettled under tbe broad sbade tree, beside a clear mailing stream, In a green valley. How pleasant the grata tben look; how refreshing tbe bright waters, and how cozy tbe tail lodges, with tbeir shaded verandahs of thickly interwovea bought! All day ion if we had toiled over the scorcklng plain, through clouds of grasshoppers that often struck us lu the face with sufficient force to make tbe f kin smart fr several minutes. Once we had seen a mirage of a beautiful lake, fringed with trees and surrounded by green pas tures, which invited us to pursue' lis fleeting shadows, but we well knew all about these de ceptions by tad experience, and pushed steadily on over the burning sands. These mirages often decelvete weary travel ler of the desert. Suddenly Itic horsi-nnn sees a river or lake, apparently, lost ahead of him, and be rides oa aud on, hoping t come up to it. For hours it lies before his eyes, and ttieu In a moment disappears, leaving him miles and miles out of hta way, and In the midst of desert sands. Men have ridden all day striving to reach the beautiful river just before tbem, aud then at uigbt turn bark to plod their weary way to where tkey had started from in tbe morning. These mirages often lead to death both nun and hone. The mirage we bad seen was most delightful, representing a clear lake, with trees, meadows, and villages nettling ou its shores, but It scarcely equalled the reality of the scene when, late la the afternoon, we ascended a rise In tbe prairie, and saw below us a wide stream lined with green trees, aud on its banks a large Indiau ensainp ment. The ponies pricked up their cars and neighei with pleasure as they smelt the water, and onr own delight was unbounded. We baited for a moment to admire the beautiful prospect. Through the majestic trees, slauticg rays of tbe sun shivered on the grass. Far away, winding like a huge silver-serpent, ran the river, while near by in a shady grove, stood the village the children at play ou tbe green lawn?, not made by hands. The white sides of the teepees shone In the setting sunlight, and the smoke curled lazily upward from their dingy tops. Bright ribbons and red grass, looking like streamers on a ship, fluttered from the lodge-poles, and gaudily-dressed squaws and warriors walked about, or sat on the green aod under the trees. There were maidens, as beautiful as Hiawatha, or as graceful as Minnehaha, wandering, hand In band, along the stream, or listening under the shade of some wide-spreading tree to words of love, as soft and tender as ever were poured into woman's ear. Near the village were hundreds of horses aad ponies with bright feathers Haunt! ug in their manes and tails as they cropped the rich grass of the valley. A group of noisy children wero playing at a game much rcfembling ten-pin?; some boys wero shooting at a mark with arrows,and up the stream several youths were returning home with rod aud Hue, and flue Btriugs of speckled trout. Scores of men and women were swimming about in the river, now diving, and then dousing each other amid screams of J tugbter from the bystanders on the shore. Here and there a young girl darted about like a fish, her black hair streaming behind her in the water. While we looked, the little children suddeuly ceased irom piay anu ran kio tue lodges; mounted men surrounded the herd, and the swimruers and promenaders hastened toward the village. We had been perceived by tbe vil lagers, and the unexpected arrival of strange horsemen at an Indian encampment always creates great excitement, i bey may be Irleuds, but they are more often enemies, so the vil lagers are always prepared for a turprisc. Some men were see u running to and fro with guns and bows, and in a few minutes buisn mounted warriors left the encampment aud rode towards us, going first to the top of tbe highest mound to tee if they conld discover other horsemen in tbe rear, or to the riht or left of us. No sooner did tfeey ascertain there were but three in the party, then they rode boldly up and asked us our business, I "told them who we were, and wher e wo were from, upon which they cordially invited us to the village. As we approached, man, wonieu, and children poured out of tho encampment to look at the strangers, and having satisfied their curiosky, the sports and amusements ot the evening wero renewed. 1 asked permission to camp of no one, for I needed none, as this was God's land, and not owned by ravenous and dishonest speculators. So 1 marched right down to the centre of the village, and finding a vacant space, pitched my lodge. It was not necessary to purchase a town lot here, for no one, save Him who owns all, held real estate. A few Santee women gathered about my squaws and chatted with them, anxious to learn the news from down the river. Seeing that they were interfering with the unpacking of the ponies and tbe erecting of the lodge, I unceremoniously ordered them to be gone, and they went quietly away. The lodge was soon up; the ponies unpacked and put out to graze. Having seen things put In order for the night, I sauntered out through the village to learn the news. I was agreeably surprised, when I learned there was a white man in tbe village, who had been sent out to the Indians as a missionary. All the savages spoke of him as a kind-hearted, good man, who was a great friend of tbe Great Spirit and of the Big Father at Washington. 1 made haste to pay my respects to my white brother, and found him indeed a good Christian gentleman. He had a white wife and child, and he and they were living comfortably and plea santly with these wild children of the desert. I talked more than an hour with the good man; it was so delightful to see and speak with one of my own blood and eolor. When I left him, 1 promised 1 would return the next day and dine with him, which I did. It may sound strange to hear one talk of "dining out" iu an Indian camp, but I can assure my civilized readers the meal was none the less wholesome or abundant on account of the place In which it was served. When I returned to my lodge, I found it sur rounded by a crowd of dirty squaws and chil dren, who were Intent upon examining every thing we bad. I ordered them off, and could not kelp laughing when I compare the curi osity of these rude Iadian women with that 1 had seen exhibited aU church, In the States, by white women. There they go to church, not to bear the gospel, but to see what tbeir neighbors have to wear, and these Indiau women had ceme to my lodge with the same laudable ob ject. I am not certain that human nature is the same everywhere, bat I ant quite certain woman nature is the same all the world over. J. P. Bkelly & Co. send ns "The Builders," by Miss L. Bates, a religious story for young people, suitable for a holiday gift or to be added to Sanday-school libraries. From T. B. Peterson Sl Brothers we have received "A Bent in a Cloud," by Charles Lever.

The same house send ns "Major Jones' Chronicles of Pineville," a humorous work that has long been before the publio, but vthich still continues to maintain its popu larity. ,"Frarik Leslie's Illustrated Almanac," which we have received from Tarner & Co., is full of attractive pictures and entertaining reaoing matter upon a great variety of sub jects.
