novelties: ?
We dramatic critics had a hard racing time of it
last evening. A new French farce at the Princess',
(the iuture /evt It rideau of the Shakspercan
I> '?>?.) ? uew French drama for the rmUri of Mr.
j Benjamin Webster, at the Adelphi, as a middle
piece, and some original music at Jullien s. The
'Tempest' has bad a glorious run of some hundred
night at the Princess'. The new farce is named
?;A C?se of Conscience," in English, and in Krench,
"As-tu tu< le Mandarin." It an an impossible
rebus kind of plot, founded on a passage which
occurs in the works of Jean Jacques Rousseau,
where "a case of conscienco" is suggested in the
style that the moral philosophers of old used to embo
dy in the fable of "Gyges and his Ring," as, for in
stance, suppose by touching a spring in Europe,
we could, like the mythological old lady with her
scissors, cut off the thread of life of a mandarin in
the I elestial empire, and mo become d la minuet,, his
heir at law?this, too, without the possibility oi any I
suspicion or the knowledge of the victim's personal
appearance. A ring at the street door is the medium
employed in this case, and forthwith a John China
man notonlyshiifHesoffthismortal coil, but a pocket
book at the same moment (laden with flimsies) falls
at the tuggee. that is, the t ell-puller's feet. To fol
low the plot further were a useless task,
and so suffice it to say that Monsieur*
David Fisher and F. Cooke and Miss Mur
ray made the little piece successful, not to omit
honorable mention <>l a very prettv set ?cene repre
senting a gravel walk of an "Inn of Court,'' with
Linden tress and the porter's sentry box. At the
Adelphi, the drama was of a fanta-stical, diabolical
and regions-bellow-ish character, being a free line
for line translation of Messieurs Brisebarre and
Ehus "I41 Legend tie 1' Homme Sans Tete,'' under
the literal title of the "Headless Man." To arrive
at a notion of the plot, just omnium gathemmize
"Don Giovanni" and Schiller's " Robbers"? then
take therefrom all that is good in both, and
guillotine your hero in the second act. In the
following entr'acte pop his nob on again, so
that in act three he may be an entire man again.
It was capitally well put upon the stage, and the
audience were uncommonly good for the first
two acts, but when the hrorors upon horrors
worked up, or rather down to the great hall and coun
cil chamber of the evil one himself, dnring tifite day
or extra grilling occasion, their patience was at the
length of its tether, and cackling became unani
mous. However. Mr. Webster ami Madame Celeste
are general favorites, so that on the fall of the cur
tain the sibilationa gave place to culls for the lessee
and tne directress.
Mr. John Mitchell's Opera Bnffa Ttaliana has teen !
very fashionablv and fully attended. It is rumored ,
(Mrs. Seymour having declined further negotiation)
that Mr. and Mrs. Keeley and Mr. Albert Smith ire i
to be the future proprietors and managers of the lit
tle Strand theatre. Mr. Lumley, wherever he gees '
is always even more successful with Mdlle. Piccolo^ I
mini and Signor Ginglini than he wan with Jenny
Lind and Gardoni. Mr. Tom Taylor's new comedy !
is drawing good houses at the Haymarket, and the
same may in truth be said of Balle's opera at the I
Lyceum. 1
The plot of Tom Taylor's new comedy of "An
Unequal Match,' which has lieen quite successful at
the Haymarket, runs thus: The object of the author,
indicated bv bis title of "An Unequal Match " is to
show the danger, in a acsial point of view, of a
between two persons in widely different ranks
<>f life. Harry ArnclifTe, (Mr. W. Karren,)a younger
branch of an aristocratic family, jilted by Mrs. Mon
tresor, (Mrs. Buckingham W hit".) a fashionable
coquette, retires to a remote part of the country, i
where he devotes himself to artistic pursuits and
falls in love with Hester Graze brook. (Miss Amy
Sedgwick), the lovely daughter or an honest black
smith. Charmed no less by her beauty than by her
unsophisticated manners, he otters her his baud not i
knowing that his uncle had died suddenly, and left
him heir to a baronetcy and large estates. The intel- '
I'KCDce does not, however, alter his resolution: he 1
still declares his intention to niarry Hc?ter, and to
raise her to his own rank in society. Eighteen
months elapse, and we find Sir Harry and Lady Aru
cliffc returned to their home, after a prolonged con- '
tinental tour, and we perceive that Sir Harry? sur
rounded by his fashionable friends, and influenced
by the artful suggestions of Mrs. Montresor his
former name ? becomes fretful and uneasy be
cause his wife still preserves her rustic
manners, and an unfashionable habit of
not concealing her feelings or opinions. An inci
pient disciw of the chest, and the urgent orders of
his physician, determine Sir Harry to pass a few
months at a German spa; but to avoid alarming his
wife, he pleads some pressing business on the Conti
nent. and leaves her rather abruptly to lament his
absence. Hester, who fancies that he has been lured
awa v by Mrs. Montresor, of whom she is jealous, and
who has, in fact, managed to meet Sir Harry A m
cliffe at Ems, makes up her mind to foil her rival at
her own weapons. In the twelve months which suc
ceeds her husband's departure she applies herself so
diligently to acquire those accomplishments and
artificial manners whic h her husband seemed t ?
think indispensable in her position, that, when -lie
follows him to the little German watering place
when he has taken np his quart, rs, -lie literally eon
founds him by the alteration which has taken place
in her. She is no longer the innocent, artiest girl,
a, I truth and affection, but a finished coquette bold!
brilliant and heartless-? who receives tne attentions
of a small German duke, with fashionable compo
sure. nnailv. by turning his own weapons on her
husband .and repeating bis precepts, drawn from the
text book of polished society, she punishes him for
his weakness, triumphs over her riv al, and wins
'Mick a rejoicing husband to his true faith. There is
an underplot for Buclotone and Coniptm. It may
1** funny, hut it i* uot ;it all original.

Book literature w i^ad, authors are gone to Grub ? tree I,
and the Sunday newspapers and publishers (those
who were not sndffed out like tallow candle# in tbe late
financial gale) have taken to the very harmless pursuit of
sucking their thumbs, and wondering why the public will
not buy their shelved hooka, forgetting that they are
trash, which hat Uud itn day. Publishers generally are
but poor political economist*; they have no very Hue
appreciation of literature; they regard it as an article of
trafllc, to serve immediate use and abuse, a* in the exer
cise of their wisdom the case demands. More ttian two
years ago the Herald predicted that tbe jiolicy pursued
by American publishers would produce the exact depres
sion now experienced by the trade. Our publishers never
for a moment take into consideration that there is such
a thing as identifying literature with our nationality, and
making ltBerve as a -n at vehicle reflecting our society in
truthful colors, refining our tastes, and creating for itself
a healthy d< maud. In Kurope literature has a standard
of excellent:, and this the publisher ros|>out* and pro
tect*, knowing lull well that it is that alone which can
create a healthy demand for his publications We have
no standard of excellence, and no criticism in which the
public has the slightest faith. <hir publishers, with few
exceptions, discard literary excellence, build up an un
sound trade in falsehood and puffery, and seek to force*
demand for the veriest trash, of which the reading public
is become heartily sick. We contend that it is the perm
ooUH policy udophHl by thotnulf*, IDd whu'.li vvftw felt
long before the panic set in, that has produced this dearth
n the book market. , , ,
Men ignorant of literature, and with scarcely capital
enough to set up an apple stand at tho corner, embark in
publishing with the hope of making a fortune out of some
wonderful book, written by some wonderful author, dis
covered by some wonderful accident in one of the rural
districts, hut who, after all. turns out lo bo a Miss in her
teens. And Willi this wonderful book and wonderful
author, the euterprisiug publisher Hashes upon
a credulous public, only to practice a decep
lion by declaring he has sold al least one
hundred thousand copies. Hooks of a national cha
racier these enterprising publishers will not touch.
They must have '-sensation novels," "sensation sermons
and encyclopedias written by "sensation editors ." Tlie
first must be written by ambitious females, and have pints
slightly obscene, but so diluted with sentimentality as to
suit the tastes of tho strictly pious, and be in high favor
with the critics ol' the Irumn'. and such other dilapidated
??arsons as have a love for books that set the country by
the ears, whilo sustaining their peculiar prejudices. If
they make the ltearls of school girls flutter, and send spin
stersof forty to meditating matrimony, so much the bet
ter. But they must be sectional? must lire the prejudices
of one section of the country and set it against another.
The sermons, too. must be of the sensation order; such as
will send the religint* enthusiasm of the ignorant into a
Maze, while, the encyclopedia, got up by sensation edi
tors. is expected to make "a great stir." And with these
emasculated and sickly wares, carrying a pernicious influ
ence to the fireside, our enterprising publishers have so
nauseated the public that it very properly turns from all
new publications with disgust.
But in order to force their wares upon the public the
publisher finds it necessary to resort to expedients that re
flect no great credit upon those who join him in carrying
them out. He must have "the opinions of the press," but
must crush out honest criticism : and to do this he employs
some neejy goutlemau, who is critic for not less than
throe highly respectable newspapers, and correspondent
for as many more in the rural districts. So engaged, this
clever gentleman, who generally has a larxo circle of fe
male admirers, becomes tbe ready instrument of his em
1 ployer, and is of necessity bound to praise his books in
?uch pajiers as he has access to. It is also a well known
fact that he will praise books he has not even looked into,
and which may be found on the stall of a dealerin second
hand books three hours alter he received them Another
well known and equally pernicious practice with these eu
terpnsing publishers is that of compelling the critics in
their employ to write a series of "notices'' of
some "sensation book" they aro about to bring
out. And these clever notices, written in the counting
room of the enterprising publisher, and representing the
book as a perfect marvel in literature, the critic will get
his friends of the country newspajx rs to insert. By this
means the publisher gets a vast number or highly color
ed "opinions of the press." which he parades in a lengthy
advertisement, in which his skill at puffery is developed
in singular contrast with bis lack of grammar. Theef
feet of this cann< t be other than pernicious, since it is vir
tually practising a deception upon the public. And the
public finding it lias been deceived time an I again, will no
longer jiermil itself to be made the victim of such mean
ness. Further, the publisher tells yos, without the slight
est hesitation, that he lias no need to pay lor real talent,
when by his own skill at pulling he can force s large sale
for that which he can get for nothing. But ho forget*
I that a system of trade so based cannot long continue. Al
I really even the public has lost all confidence in publishers
1 and critics, and, like a sensible gentleman, seeks amuse
I menl and instruction ill old books of established reputation.
And now. publishers having brought their business to a
dead lock, besiege jrou with inquiries as to how they can
open uew channels of communication with the public and
regain its confidence. This is the natural result of at
tempting to make forced *aie? of worthless wares, instead
of endeavoring to create a healthy demand for something
of real value.
But there is still another and greater error in the sys
tem adopted by our recently established publishing houses
the manner in w hich authors in America are |?iil In
England men live by authorship aloue. in America, they,
with few exceptions', must of nee, t.-,ty have other means
of getting a living. In England, an author of respectabili
ty and reputat.on has a line of cr.nl it with Ins publisher,
who regards it tor Ins own interest to frw the author
as mm h as possible from embarrassment, that his min i
maybe relieved of all outside cares while pursuing his
i literary lalwtrs We speak if the system common at this
' time. Our publishers, on the contrary , require the author
to expend his labor and money in the preparation of his
| book, to wait six months from the date of publication for
a settlement, and to accept notes |>ayable al four and six
months for anv lialance that may be coming to him The
author i* also "forced to accept the publisher's statement
as correct for he is at his mercy and has no means of
going behind it to ascertain the truth. The author may
ha\ e sin nt years of laUir on his l>ook . and by this perni
rious system he is compelled still lo give his publisher a
credit of some ten or twelve months. Under this system
there is uo chance for dependent genius to rise and de
velope itself, except in the newspai>ers As for publish
er's notes, we have nothing to s?v against iliem, except
that it has Ix'come the fashion to fail before they fall due,
leaving the "writers" of seBfstlon novels a prey to the
infuriated broker, who shaved them at six per cent a
month. Indeed, it wa* no rnre sight of late to see Mi
author in Wall street pleading his necessities with one of
those sharp gentlemen, of whom he expected a discount,
and was offering nis publish'-r s note at a third off. How
ever. It must not be forgotten that in good times the genero
sity of the publisher will prompt him , m consideration of the
author's necessities, to discount his own notes for the
trifling sum of three percent a month. This we assert is
a common practice with New York publishers, and will
go far to illustrate the neculative character of the relations
now existing l>et ween taw and their authors
Indeed, while American authors liave been struggling
to extend the field of their labor*, American publishers,
instead of subserving their own interests by enoouraging
them, have onla thrown ob?tacles in their way. Whenever
an effort whs trfthc to get an mte rnaliona! copyright . where
by the author miuht secure some protection for his labor,
and extend his usefulness into other countries the Amen
can publisher was the first to come forward and npi*we
it. And now, when he feels the blighting effects of
his own narrow policy, becomes convinced that free
i stealing Is not good political economy . and that an niter
national copyright is essential to the protection of his own
interests, he turns rour.d and is its m??t earnest advocate .
but only so far as it will serve his own selfish ends He
i will use the name of the author as a guise, but lie care*
I not a whit for his interest*, and wmiM treat them with as
1 little respect as he would the interests of the printer and
, binder, ?*>th of whom ought to t>e duly considered In anv
international oopvright bill It has Iieeo said and we
I Tear with loo much truth that lr\ ng and rooper were
i only saved lo American literature by the generosity of
I English publishers let us see how fsr this is true and
also what the American publl?her has brought u(??n him
I self by his unwavering opposition to an international
1 copyright ,
I'p to Hie year 1*62 American books, with tew exeep
lions were received in England with ?ome distrust. In
deed it hal tieen long charged that America was without
a literature But the works of such author* as Irving
Oootier, Bancroft and preecntt did much to dispel this
deeply rooted opinion . while the high literary reputation
gained r?r their works caused them to be sought after by
English publishers Mr. John Murray and Mr. Beutlej ,
prompted by a sense of |u?tice to authors, whether big
llsh or AmerS an .paid all these author* large sum for
their works which thev produced in a style that soon
gained for them a demand not surpassed by the works of
the most distinguished writer* Indeed, it i* well known
that Irving received of English pnbli-her- for hi* writ
log" very nearly twenty thousand pound* and that Mr
! Benllev paid C?*>per a sum even larger It may be said
' w th truth, then, thai these gentlemen did i ?r Amcniar*
authors what they hail long expected n v. on of their own
publishers This was not ooly ?cknowled?mg the claims or
our authors to the fruits of their labors, but glv

W?* not destined to last long. The field which had
mo graufufciy to Arocn*wi HiUmtb '7
Fngllsh publishers waa closed, in 1864, by the deci
sion of lord 81. l/'onsrd, reversing a decision of
1-nrd Campbell, in whicb it wu held that a foreign
author whose work appeared tint in England was
entitled to a copyright That tbla decision of lord St.
I<eonard waa influenced by Uie mean spirit in which
Ainerlc?n publfehers had opposed all attempts to procure
an intej national copyright there cannot be a doubt; in
deed, lie openly avowed it in his remarks while rendering
the decision. Thug suddenly, then, the English field was
closed to the American author, the right to property for
which the honest publisher bad paid swept away, and the
pirate left to plunder at his will. The American author,
then, is driven back to the narrow field of his own coun
try, for no honestly disposed English publisher dale risk
a pound on au American work he may have the mortifica
tion to see pirated the very next day, and thrust upon tha
market at the mere cost of printing and binding. Hera
Ihe rogue is seen to have tlie honest man at his mercy.
Hut tbe most injurious phage of this system is that it
affords the English pirate an opportunity of making tbe
works of our authors supply the place of such works as
were written by a poor but worthy class of English
authors. Thus the English pirate takes tbe bread out of
the mouth of certain English authors, without putting any
into that of tbe American whose works ho steals. Again,
it gives him an advantage ovor the American publishers,
and which that narrow headed gentleman begins to dis
cover is seriously affecting liis trade; for, while he de
luges the English market with cheap American books, on
which he hus no copyright to pay , he prints English books
in England, where labor and material are thirty per cent
chea|*r than with us, iind by establishing agencies here
deluges this market with all variet >es of trash, which he sells
at lets than one half the American manufacture. This phase
of the free stealing principle is now developing itself to
an alarming extent, and is alike damaging to the printing,
binding and paper manufacturing interests of this country. 1
Not long since we had occasion to visit several towns in
the interior of this State, in all of which wo found the
bookstores laden with these cheaply manufactured Eng
lish books. They are seldom noticed by the press, but
pass quietly into the market, and supply a large j
portion of tbe demand for reading. Some of these I
books are of the most trashy description, got up with 1
showy covers to deceive the purchaser; indeed, what
may be termed fash literature. Tn several Instances we
were assured that this class of English manufactured
books furnished more than one half of the booksellers'
trade. But you have no need of going into thecountry; the
same phase of the trade may be seen throughout
this city. And this is the state of things produced
by the opposition of our publishers to an international
copyright. N'or must it be forgotten that their love for
reprinting this poison of foreign writers, which they could
have for the stealing, has seriously affected public taste.
Under the Influence of this international free stealing, then,
authors are fast being driven out of book literature.
But the American publisher will tell you that he wants
to educate the American people at a cheap rate; that they
are opposed to an international copyright. This is adecep
tion necessary to his system of trade. We have too much
respect for the honesty of the American people to believe
that they would take any part in degrading mental labor,
or desire to see continued a system that inflicts a wrong
on one class of the community, that another may profit by
it. We are not speaking of such authors as Dickens, Bui
wor and Thackeray, for they find a nominal protection in
this country, as well by the laws of taste, which create a
fixed demand for their works, as by an etiquette of "the
trade" thut holds it dishonorable for one publisher to
publish over the head of another; in other words, that the
best thief has the best right to the plumder. In England
no such pious respect for priority of theft is kuown by the
trade. I;et us hope our members of Congress will take
the matter in hand, re-open the fleld to our authors, and
render them an act of justice they have long pleaded for
in vain. There is here an excellent chance for some
honest member to distinguish himself. Fear only pre
vented Mr. Everett from doing it.
