The gross materialism of the age has , had a tendency to lower the standards of Literature and Art in the civilized world. Hence, when we chance upon a book like "Memories," It instantly at tracts by its wide divergence from the current literature of the day; and ap w peals to us, no less by the ideality of 11 its conceptions, than by the purity of r the characters it delineates. r Sir Walter Scott, in one of his in comparable descriptions, tells us of an h Oasis in the Syrian Desert, that stood * out in such clear relief from its harsh t 'r surroundings; and so refreshing was 1 Y it to each sense and sensibility of man, 1, that it was named by the Arabs "The is Diamond of the Desert." This Gem of Literature of Miss New ton's, coming as it does in this ma terial day, and entering into the arena t of a Literature, so much of which is )f meretricious, and so much of which it is sterile of any thing like psychic cul ir ture, can safely be compared to one of the veritable Diamonds in the Des ert of modern Literature. Trained and analytic critics will no doubt present the merits of this work in forceful and technical reviews, and i d 'give to its rank in literature. But for e rank and file of readers, nothing could 1e attest the soul belt charm of this work, >: than the criticism of a maid in her i- teseis, who being asked what she thought of the book, replied: "I don't know. It made me cry. I want to read it again." So when a writer can make the heart ,a and brain of the tender maiden respond it with sympathy to the pathos of a sub 5. lime sorrow, or thrill with pride at the "e perfection of a human love, she in .11 spires her pen with that touch of ge nius which make the marble breathe ,n and the canvas glow. ir Creative power, in the lining of her character delineations, distinguish this ie beautiful production throughout and o our people in this community should feel a pride in the success of this gift ed young authoress, whose birthplace h and young life was passed so close to them.
