ley--sketches of Southern , scenery, society, feel-
ings and fancies.

52. Southward Ho!; In which a party of travel-
lers discuss Southern themes, peoples, scenes, and
things, generally; It has been styled as species of
Decameron.

53. Paddy McGann, or the Demon of the Stump.

lustrated News, in 1863 or 1884.

54. Joscelyn: A Tale, of the Revolation. A serial
tale, published in the Old Guard. early in 1867.
This appears to be rather a favorable specimen of
Mr. Simms's war novels.

critical, biographical and discursive.

other authors on cognate points, in a work enti-
tled The Pro-Slavery Argument:

68. War Poetry of the South. A collection of
lyrics by Southern. poets--appeared late in 1866.
This is a valuable book, but indicates some care-
lessness in preparation, and has a good many
mistates.

volumes yet, but would fill several. While edi-
tor of the Southern Quarterly Review, Mr. Simms
wrote the greater part of several issues; and he
always supplied the shortcomings of his contri-
butors, by writing largely for every number while
he had editorial charge. He contributed liber-
ally to various other periodicals--The Kickerbock-
er, Orion, Graham's Magazine, Godey's Lady's
Book, American Quarterly, and many others; be-
sides editing the Southern Literary Gazette, The
Magnolia. The Southern and Western Monthly
Magazine and Review; and no doubt others, long-
er and no since forgotten than some of these.

ous.
