. CONTRIBUTIONS to a BALLAD HISTORY of

SION.--Mr. SULLIVAN, Certificated First-class Instructor in Physical Exercises, from Aldershot Gymnasium, gives Lessons in Deportment, Military, Musical, and Swedish Drill, Fencing with Foil or Rapier, Sword.Play, and the Gloves Highest References. The Exer cises are a careful selection approved of by medical authority. Schools and Colleges attended. For Terms address 37, Uverdale-road, 8.W.

Atheneum :-" These ballads are spirited and stirring : such are .The Fall of Harald Hardrada,"Old Benbow,' Marston Moor,' and 'Corpora) John,' the soldier's name for the famous Duke of Marlborough, which is a specially good ballad. 'Queen Eleanor's Vengeance' is a vividly told story. Coming to more modern times, 'The Deeds of Wellington, • Inkerman,' and Balaklava' are excellently well said and sung. As a book of ballade, interesting to all who have British blood in their veids, Dr. Bennett's contribution will be welcome. Dr. Bennett's Ballads will leave a strong impression on the memory of those who read them."
