  The Cabin and Parlor; or, Slaves and Masters By J. Thornton Randolph. T.B. Peterson: Philadelphia.

  It is decidedly superior to the late publications on the subject, and is one of the most readable books, both for narrative and style, that has fallen under our notice.—Norfolk, Va., Daily News.

  This is another pro-slavery fiction brought into existence by the unexampled success of Uncle Tom's Cabin. It is designed to show how much happier is the state of bondage than the state of freedom. The writer professes to give only facts, or the likenesses of facts, of which he has been himself a witness. To those who find pleasure in contemplating the beneficent influence of human servitude in its political and domestic relations, this book is commended by a dashing a rather pleasant style, and by a number of illustrations of considerable merit.—Eve.
