Narrative of the Adventures of Arthur Gordon Pym, of Nantucket. New York: HARPER & BROTHERS.

Commend us to Arthur Gordon Pym! He is a genius and his adventures rare and wonderful. If the reader would like to take a voyage of discovery, or go on an exploring expedition to the south pole he has only to take up Arthur Gordon Pym's narrative and if he is not led off to the pole scientifically, he will at least find himself, when he gets there, in a situation where science is no longer useful or necessary, and ready and willing to admit that Arthur Gordon Pym's adventures have been infinitely more astonishing than any before recorded.
