We are also indebted lo Mr. J. Randall, 44 Water street, and Messrs- Carver & Co., 36 Dauphin strret, for copies of " Mardi: and a Voyage Thither. By Hermann Melville." Those who have read those charming books Ornoo" and " Typee," by Melville, will re-quire no other recommendation for these well-printed volumes, which issue from the press of the Harpers. The New York Mirror, which is very good authority, speaks thus of Mardi: Mardi, frith all its fascinations, its unique style, its beautiful language, its genial humor, its original thoughts, its graphic descriptions, it poetic fliglf, its profound reasonings, its philosophic rederuions, its gentle religious teachings, its iniimtable whole, stretches be-lore uslike a new world, and the mental eye can never weary of gazing upon its strangely beautiful landscape."
