  [In the following List will be found the names of such books only as have been sent to this Journal. The titles of all books as they are issued will be regularly inserted in the proper column.]

  ...GARRET, DICK & FITZGERALD have got out a volume called "Tit for Tat," a novel, by a Lady of New Orleans, which we learn has met with a large circulation in the South. It is in the nature of a reply to "Uncle Tom's Cabin," and we gather from the Introduction that it deals mainly with social abuses in England.
