Gentlemen,—The gratuitous offer of your excel
lent publication, the “ Casket,” I assure you, meets
from your sick and suffering friend with a cordial
reception: the plates alone, at the close of a year,-
would be worth the trifling expense of the subscrip
tion ; those representing the Capitol, at Hsirrisburg,
Pa. and the Falls of the Passaic, N. J. are hand
somely executed, and add intrinsic value to the work;
in truth, I am free to say, that there is not within
the compass of my knowledge, a work of the kind so
well calculated to cheer the oppressed and languid
spirits as the “ Casketthe matter is diversified and
useful—so much so, that there must always be found
something to please the literary taste of every one,
who can be pleased at all. Perhaps, some folks may
think inc over-earnest in this matter, and that I am
only paying you, gentlemen, an idle compliment for
the gift of the paper—but it is not true; I speak with
sincerity—not doubting but its subscribers will
readily allow that my remarks are just.—I am, gen
tlemen, gratefully, yours, ROBERT S. COFFIN.

It has seldom been our good fortune to
meet with a more ably executed and enter
taining performance of the kind, than the
3 before‘us—at least since we last took
leave of the pages of Lucian. Its allegori

in this species of writing. The whole, too,
is in good keeping; there is an air of pro
bability and justice in the representation of
the abodes, the conversations, and the re
wards and punishments, assigned to the
character of the departed Greats -Many
excellent moral and political maxims are *
interspersed with the conversations ; alto

mighty enemies in the other world, and their
retrospective conversations on the affairs
