  —–"Uncle Tom's Cabin contrasted with Buckingham Hall, the Planter's Home; or a Fair View of both sides of the Slavery Question." By Robert Criswell.—–Published by D. Fanshaw, 106 Nassau-street. 12xx, pp. 152. With Illustrative Pictures. Surely, the "contrast" is very great between the Planter's Home and the Slave's Cabin. No book or picture is needed to prove this. Nor is it a new idea, that the prospect of marrying a plantation and negroes should make either New Yorkers, or Englishmen confess a change in their views of slavery.—Independent.
