PIERRE, or the Ambiguities. By Herman Melville, New York: Harper & Brothers.Still looking for any notice of Moby-Dick in Utica.
Another work by the author of "Typee!" Those who have read the earlier as well as some of the later productions of this author, need no importuning of ours to read the present volume. We must confess the story of Pierre is to us as yet a profound mystery; but the dozen or so pages which we have read tempt us so strongly to proceed that we have made a vow to read the book as soon as we shall get sufficient breathing time. "Pierre" is dedicated to our old friend, "His Purple Majesty, Greylock," and he could not have enlisted the favor of a more lordly patron.
