tor (the llev. Mr. Atkinson) officiated. At the
Roman Catholic church the services were unu
sually solemn, interesting, and impressive, from
the fact that it was the taking leave of the ven

a meeting of the teachers and friends of the
Sabbath School, when they resolved to celebrate
the Fourth of July in a body, and appointed a
committee to procure a suitable place.
The work at the Methodist Protestant church
will be completed by the 2'2d instant, when it
will be re-opened for divine worship. The Rev.
Thomas Stockton nnd Dr. Reese will officiate.

in lint liuve cost you to obtain so many fine illustrations,
while you have an active superintendence of an extensive

not but hope that they will do much to counteract tho
effects of that light and immoral literature hlch deluges

LEVEllETT'8 LATIN LEXICON,
I^NLARGEU AM) IMPROVED, compiled chiefly from

aud Forcellini, aud the Get Hum works of K lieller and Lue
uemann, embracing, also, the clussical distinctions of
words, aud the Etymological Index from Ireuud's Lexi
con.
The present edition of this standard and favorite Latin
Lexicon bus been much improved by the transfer to it*
columnsof the classical distinctions of Latin words, as
given in the l.exiion of Dr. Win. Ireund, of Germany,
und translated by Kiddie. The i liissical degree of each
word is (mill a ted by a figure; ti.r ux it tuple, a word vnihtmt
a figure Is Jutty chun'cal and ( ner> mutt; with the figures
I. '2, and a, word# are classical only in the first, sec

ceives at a glume. Hie Ktymological Index, also from
Freund's Lexicon, has been incorporated into tlie present
edition of Leverett. and will U- found a valuable acqui*!
tion. While transferring these note* and mark*, cata
logues were carefully kept of the word* found in each
Lexicon, whiih were not tound in the other, on compar
ing these catalogues, it w as found that thu value and im
(?ortance of the additional words found iu lieverett, so far
as a knowledge of the Latin language is concerned, very
far exc<**ls that of those found In Kiddle's Freund. 1'he
extensive use of Leverett'* lexicon in all parts of the
country, aud the preference which has lieen universally
gi\en to it over all similar works, render its recommenda
tion superfluous; but attention to this new edition is
res|>ectfiilly invited, as lacing still more worthy than its
predecessors of the distinguished favor which the work
has hitherto received.

among the ua ion* of huro]>e, which have followed
1 each other in such t|> lck succession, aud of which " tht
?ml if not urJ," the ending periodical* of Great Britain
have become Invested with a degree of Interest hitherto
unknown. They oo upy a middle ground between the
' hasty, disjointed, r.ml necessarily imperfect ecord* of the
i newspapers, and the elal>oratc and |>ondei..us treaties to
be furnished by the historian nt a future day. Whoever
reads them- periodic*I* obtains a correct and connected ac
' count of all the important |?>ljticai events of tlie Old
World, as they occur, and learns the various conclusions
drawn from lliem by the leading *| irits of t!.e age. The
American publishers therefore deem it proper to call re
newed attention to the works they publish, and the very
low price* at which they are offered to subscribers. The
following is their list, via :

, In Uie*e peril alii als are contaimil the views, moderately
though clearly and firmly expressed, of the three greatest
' parties in Knglsiid?Tory, Whig, and Kndical: "Black
wood" and the " London Quarterly" are Tory, the " Kdin
htirgh He view" Whig, and the "Westminster Heview"
Liberal. The " North BHtlsh Heview" owes its establish
ment to the last great ecclesiastical movement iu Scotland,
and is not ultra in Its views on any one of the grand de
partments of human knowledge. It was originally edited
by Dr. Chalmers, and now, wince hi* death, is conducted
by hi* son-in-law, Dr. Hnnna, associated with Sir David
Brewster. lt? literary character is of the very highest
order. Tho " W estmiusler," though rrjirintrti under that
title only, is published in Kngland under the title of the
" Foreign Quarterly aud Westminster," it being in fact n
union of the two I'eview* formerly published and reprinted
under separate titles. It has. therefore, the Advantage, by
this combination, of uniting in one w ork the best features
of lioth, as heretofore issued.
