LITERARY NOTICES.

are classified as ethnic, political, moral, religious, those of age, sexual, residential, those of property, and miscellaneous; and the conditions regulating the admission of freemen are described. The account of the management of elections includes many particulars of routine, with provisions against fraud, proceedings in contested elections, the privileges of voters, compulsory voting, bribery and other means of influencing voters, and the sanction of the election laws. Local elections are classed as town elections, parish elections, and municipal elections. Additional documental and tabular information is given in the appendices.

Mr. Arthur J. Maginnis's volume on The Atlantic Ferry; its Ships, Men, and Working, was the first work in which the transatlantic steam trade was fully described in all its parts and all its relations. It was, however, a large volume and expensive. A popular edition of the work is now published in which, by the omission of a few chapters not of great interest to the general public, and of illustrations whose value is mainly technical, the public demand and the average purse are more directly catered to. It embodies a careful and complete record of the doings of the great transatlantic steamship companies from early days to the present time. (Macmillan & Co., New York.)
