LITERARY NOTICES. The Hand-Book of India ; a Guide to the Stranger and the

Traveller, and a Companion to the Resident. By J. H. StocQUELER, late Editor of the Calcutta Englishman, Author of Fifteen Montlis' Pilgrimage through Khuristan, Persia, Turkey, and Russia, Germany, etc.; Memorials of Affghanistan, etc. Second Edition, London, 1815. WM, H. Allen & Co.

This book reminds us of the multifarious accomplishments of the lady who understood every thing from orange jelly to predestination. On whatever subject connected with India an inquirer wants information, the greatest or the least, the loftiest or the meanest, the most abstruse or the most common-place, here he will meet with a remedy for his ignorance, a solution for his doubts and a guide for his practice. The mysteries of Indian chronology are expounded and the minutia of outfit, Windsor. soap, wax-candles, brushes, blacking, and pillow-cases, carefully enumerated. Female voyagers will find that in this respect their comfort has been 'regarded down even to suggestions for the more convenient practice of the various graceful arts of busy idleness, to which they may be disposed to resort, as affording some relief from the tedium of their situation; like Mrs. Lily White, in the farce, who “knitted and netted and knotted and tatted," to while away the lingering hours of her husband's absence. The historical, political, and statistical portions of the book are admirably compiled ; and after communicating some information of this description, the author takes his protégé by the hand as he stands waiting for admission to Hailebury or Addiscombe, and conducts him through every stage of the process, of preparation, until he fairly launches him on the ocean of public service; nor does he quit him then, but tarries with him awhile to bestow all requisite information as to servants' modes of travelling and other matters of like nature, bearing in mind the Miltonic dogma, that

* To know
That what before us lies in daily life

Is the prime wisdom.” Like a good mentor, Mr. Stocqueler gives some sound advice on the necessity of “cutting the coat according to the cloth ;" attention to which would preserve many from years of embarrassment and anxiety. A description of the principal places in India and an itinerary of the principal routes, which occupy the latter part of the volume, are to be classed among the best specimens of this species of literature.' We have referred especially to the utility of the book to the young servants of the Company, but we must not neglect to mention that it is calculated to be useful to all who visit India, whatever their views or objects. It realises entirely the promise of the title-page-it is a trustworthy and entertaining “ Guide to the Stranger and the Tra. veller, and a Companion to the Resident,"_we would add, an amusing and instructive book for the general reader. So, indeed, think the public, for although published only a few months ago, it has attained to the dignity of a second edition.

Many of Mr. Stocqueler's descriptions both of persons and places are marked by much liveliness. As a specimen, we quote that of a functionary unknown among the male population of Great Britain or Ireland.

The dhobee or washerman is fully explained to the English reader by his English name, though be differs in some respects from the English washerwoman as well as in being of a different sex. For instance, while she is up to her elbows in a wash-tub, be is up to his knees in a tank, or may be in a river ; while she rubs her knuckles into a shrivelled and blistery-looking skin, he bangs the linen of master, mistress, and child, against a serrated log, or a roughened stone ; while she is all su is, the frothy article is scarcely known to him, and yet he is well off for soap, but the modus operandi is unfavourable for the accumulation of the frothy pile; while she mangles, heis ironing with an enormous brazen iron, of which the weight has an effect quivalent to mangling on the cloth; and finally, while she brings hoine her linen as yellow as saffroo, he brings his home as white as snow.

“Mr. Thornton is master of a style of great perspicuity and vigour, always interesting, and frequently rising into eloquence. His power of painting cha. racter, and of bringing before the eye of the reader the events which he relates, is remarkable; and if the knowledge of India can be made popular, we should say his is the pen to effect it."'-Times.

He (Mr. Thornton) has produced what may be truly designated a national work, the details of which, in whatever point of view they inay be considered, whether in a political, a statistical, or a commercial one, bear the impress o more extensive knowledge, greater impartiality, and sounder discrimination, than have been displayed by any previous writer on the same important subject.

It will be sufficient to repeat our conviction that this is the best, the most comprehensive, and the most original History of India which has yet appeared, and that we cannot doubt of its becoming the most popular, if indeed it be not so already."-United Service Gazette, Jan. 20, 1844.

“ His (Mr. Thornton's) History of the British Empire in India will be numbered among our standard works of literature, without which no library wil be deemed complete. To it the statesman and politician will betake theinselves for the knowledge requisite for debate ; the scholar will study it as affording him information respecting a country replete with materials for calta philosophic reflection, and incentives to philanthropic exertion ; while the man of taste will be delighted with the easy now of language in which it is com. posed, and the vivid cxhibition of the erents, and their relation to each otber, by which the narrative is distinguished."--Globe, Jan. 9, 1814.
