MR. MURRAY'S LIST OF New and Recent Publications.

SPEECHES DELIVERED IN INDIA , 1884 8. INCLUDING THAT AT "THE ST. ANDREW'S DINNER."

By the MARQUIS OF DUFFERIN AND AVA.

8vo. 9s.

"We earnestly commend the perusal of these speeches to the English reader. They are the best possible antidote for the rashness, ignorance, and folly which are the too common characteristics of amateur criticism of Indian politics. They are, moreover, agreeable reading; for Lord Dufferin, serious and well considered as are his observations, is never dull, and, whenever occasion permits, breaks away into a light heartedness that reminds us that he is a true Irishman, and that the Sheridan blood flows in his veins. His touch is light; his spirits are gay; his fancy plays at ease. Whenever, for a moment, the senatorial purple is thrown aside, we perceive the courteous, kindly gentleman, sincerely pleased with the world in which he has played so distinguished a part, and the men and women whom his genial disposition and charming manners have bound to himself in the firm allegiance of personal affection. He is proud of his country, of his class, of his past good fortune, and as he takes every opportunity of announcing of his wife." Saturday Review .

"In this charming collection there are not many speeches which compare in importance and oratorical elevation with the brilliant orations and despatches of Lord Dufferin's Canadian administration; but we have a volume abounding in light on Indian history and rich in hereditary refinement of diction and vivacity of perception.... The actual condition of the Indian Empire at the time Lord Dufferin became Viceroy, and the healing influence his personality exercised upon the inflammation produced by many attempts to exploit India for party purposes, constitute some of Lord Dufferin's strongest claims to recognition among the great men who have made the English name renowned in the Indian world."

OUR VICEREGAL LIFE IN INDIA.

BEING A SELECTION FROM MY JOURNAL DURING THE YEARS 1884 8.

By THE MARCHIONESS OF DUFFERIN AND AVA.

Fourth Thousand. With Portrait & Map. 2 Vols. Crown 8vo. 24s.

"All who understand and sympathise with Indian life will hasten to read these two pleasant volumes. The journal is a running commentary on the multitudinous events which must crowd into such years as she passed in India, and is none the less pleasant for its simplicity and unpretentiousness. Perhaps the visit which Lady Dufferin paid to Burmah three years ago will attract as much attention as any other part of her travels." Daily Telegraph .
