From Lhtell'« Living Age COITOUEST OF PERU. History of the Conquest of Peru % with a Preliminary View of the Civilization, of the Incas. The historian of the Conquest of Mexico worthily completes that labor wilh a History of the Conquest of Peru. It is very ably executed. Though the materials arc less brilliant than those of tho b""u<jij1c and odventure of Cortex, we derive from llic present work a higher impicfuion of the writer's powers. The style is less forced. The subject is a«thoroughly grasped, with on easier treatment. It is not a paradux to say that Mr. Prcscotl's partial blindness, unassumingly described in the preface to the present work, enables htm, in an historical sense, to ace with greater depth and accuracy.

Ladomn'o Classes ok England and Irumnd.—It must be a sad picture lo look upon the laboring 1 classes of England and Ireland—that empire of splendor nnd wretchedness. The recent arrivals, repeat in doleful and afflicting accents,the accounts of their increasing want and woe and misery, anil ns the winter advances, their condition must inevitably grow worse. There seems no relief for the destitute—no hope but death for the suffering.

Is there anything paificular lo winch you refer." Tell them that an agricultural labor...

On the slight repulse of our troops he was inhumanly murdered by tho enemy's lancers- His faithful dog—a beautiful pointer, had accompanied him there; lie was ulso wounded. During the action he became separated from his master. After it had subsided, the noble form of HurwcII, manly as in life, was discovered,and beside him,and licking hia face and wounds was his poor dog, who regardless of his own pain, had sought his generous master in the hour of danger, there, upon the same field, to die. This affectionate scene touched the hearts of many. Again, after the fury of tho battle was over, I saw a camp-woman, of the infantry, who came upon the field to look for her husband.
