De Tocqueville was the first foreign author who comprehended the genius of our institutions, and who made intelligible to Europeans the compli cated machinery, wheel within wheel, of the state and federal governments. His Democracy in America' is acknowledged to be the most profound and philosophical work upon modern republicanism that has yet appeared.

Her picture of the little pains and trials which are mixed up with the joys that surround the fireside is perfect, and no one can fail to derive benefit from its examination. In the very first chapter we are charmed with her simplicity, her piety, and trus womanly feeling, and learn to reverence the fictitious diarist as a model for the wife and mother of the nineteenth century."-Newark Daily Advertiser.
