Hinton. New York : G. P. Patnam's Sons. 12 mo.( 374 pages. This volume is the eecond of eight or ten entitled "Contemporary Statesraen of Europe," ndited by Thos. W. Higginson, and forming the first series of "The Library of Brief Biographies; " which, judgiDg from tlie one mider notioe, promises to be a welcome addition to any library, private or public. In the four parts of the bóok are passed suocessively in review, " The Iudependent Membern," " The Labor Agitation and its Friends," "Parliamentary Agitators," and "Popular Leaders." The sketches are vivid, earnest deliuerations of such men as Prof. Fawcett, Sir Charles W Dilke, Thomas Hughes, Anthony J. Mundella, Samuel Plimsoll, Charles Bradlaugh, Joseph Arch, and others : men who may and do differ as to ways and means, but whose great aim in life is the uplifting of and freeiug from oppression their fellow men. The definition of " What does Demooraoy mean 'i " as given by Thomas Hughes, might be studied with profit by some of our legislators : " Simply an equal chance for all ; a fair field for the best men let them stand where thoy will, to get to the front ; a clearance out of sham governors, and of unjust privileges in every department of human affairs." The rapid progress of the labor movement, and the near " advent of the power of the great body of the people, those who live by labor," cannot fail to impress every reader; while, at the same time, the moderation which expressly says, " We are not going to preach universal brotherhood with a rifle in one hand and a tract in the other, and do not believe it will be brought any nearer by violent changes in form of government," would 8eem to be a characteristic of most of the leaders. Lively pictures of Parliamentary debate are numerous, and matiy a member not numbered in the " Independent " ranks is limned in a half dozen peu strokes. The book ia thoroughly readable, and certainly valuable as an index of the state of English affaire. For sale by John Moore.
