4.-The Cake, and other Tales, from the German. London, Dublin, and Derby Richardson and Son, 1849.

5.-The Downfall of a Teetotaler. London, Dublin, and Derby:

Richardson and Son, 1849.

We have classed together these interesting and instructive little books, as a gratifying evidence that the taste for useful Catholic literature, even in its lighter branches, is steadily progressing upon both sides of the Atlantic. Some of them are old acquaintances under a new form; but intended, as they all are, for the instruction and amusement of youth, they are all equally deserving of a cordial welcome.

XIII. The Primacy of the Apostolic See
PATRICK KENRICK, Bishop of Philadelphia.
York E. Dunigan and Brother, 1848.
London, Dublin, and Derby.

Vindicated, by FRANCIS
Third edition. New
Richardson and Son,

We are happy to see a new edition of Dr. Kenrick's well-known work on the supremacy of the Pope. We recommend it to all our readers as an admirable exposition and defence of the rights, privileges, and conduct of the Holy See; and most especially we recommend it to those who rest not on that chosen rock, and yet are seeking to build the Church; who are cut off from that true vine, and yet think to draw from it its heavenly nourishment. In very truth, the mere sight of that glorious tree of life, full of vigour and heavenly energy, standing alone amidst the dead and withered branches that cumber the ground around it, ought to be of itself convincing. But when it is backed by the overwhelming mass of evidence which this book furnishes, it must be hard indeed for the earnest Christian any longer to be blinded to the truth. Dr. Kenrick's work takes in all the points of interest in which the primacy can be viewed; and the advantage of the present edition is, that it classifies them under three distinct heads. The Spiritual Supremacy, the Secular Relations, and the Literary and Moral Influence of the Holy See, are separately and fully treated, and nothing seems to be wanting to make the work a complete exposition of this important subject.
