Tales and Sketches from the Queen City. By Benjamin Drake.

These short “ Tales and Sketches" breathe the freshness of the West. They are gracefully written, and abound in characteristic touches, that show them to have been drawn directly from nature. Life in the West is certainly something different from any thing the world has ever seen anywhere else ; and the literature, which shall adequately describe it and embody its experiences, must be strongly marked by raciness and originality. Mr. Drake has been a worthy and successful laborer in this field. Of the Sketches in this volume it is not easy to make a selection; perhaps that called “ Putting a Black Leg on Shore " is as striking as any. The " Kentucky Election " is capital.

With the general merits of this pleasing little volume, there are some literary blemishes, which ought to have been avoided. Words are sometimes used with a false meaning: as, for example, " the founders of our towns, who, feeling themselves the prototypes of Romulus and Remus," &c p. 19. The printing is sometimes very inaccurate, particularly in the quotations from the French. A book that is worth printing at all, is worth printing well; a writer who possesses so much graphic power as Mr. Drake, ought to write accurately.
