The treatise before us is very complete, and has evidently been prepared with scrupulous care. The descriptions of the various systems of military bridges adopted by nearly all civilized nations are very interesting, even te the non-professional reader, and to those specially interested in such subjects must be very Instructive, for they are evidently the word of a master of the art of military bridge-building."-Washington Chronicle.
