Notices of New Publications

  If the influence of "UNCLE TOM'S CABIN" is to be measured by the number of imitations and replications it provokes, it is certainly a formidable affair. The bibliographer that keeps account of them must be a Magliabacchi or Dib-len. One of the latest is "BUCKINGHAM HALL, THE PLANTER'S HOME," by ROBERT CRISWELL, Esq., who claims to be on familiar terms with the peculiar institution, in consequence of sundry tours through the Southern States. The book is easily and agreeably written, and perhaps strikes the average of truth a little nearer, than the brilliant and successful authoress alluded to. D. FANSHAW.
