' In Australian Wilds, and other colonial , tales and sketches. . Mr florsbnrgh,. bookseller, of George ) street, has sent to us a copy of the above- . named work, which comprises a number of [ original tales of colonial life by authors born, or who have been resident, in the colonies. They are mainly sketches of men i or incidents in the earlier period of Ausi tralasian settlement, and when we mention [ the names of Messrs Fatjeon, Uaddon t Chambers, Jenkins (of ‘ Ginx’s Baby ’ > Notoriety), Madame Couvrier, H. B. Marriott Watson, and Edward Lawson as the s authors, the public will expect interesting stories, and will not be disappointed. The i little volume only contains 198 pages—the quintessence of seven or - eight novelettes. Not the least interesting portion of it is the [ introduction, giving short biographical r notices of the authors. The book is exceed- , ingly well printed, on good paper, and en- • closed in an artistically designed and executed ornamental wrapper.
