This work may be very properly considered a companion to the " Sacred Mountains,' by the same author. Its object is to illustrate and "render more life-like" the sacred writings. It is not the author's design to supersede the Bible. But his wish is excite a solicitude to obtain, and to become intimately acquainted and per fectly familiar with its history, doctrines and laws; to know its truth to imbibe its spirit, feel its power, and partake of its salvation; in a word, to prize in sorco measure as it deserves, tills :r n asure which is indeed be yond price. We predict for it a circulation far beyond any of the authors former works. [The News. Jan. Ith. Rambles and Sketches —By Rev. J. T. Head ley. We have not for a long time sat down to a book with more pleasing anticipations, or found thoso anticipations more lolly re alized, than in tho perusal of the work be fore us, and we know it will be hailed with gratification by the many admirers of the talented author. His "Napoleon and his Marshals" was, perhaps, ns popular and found at least as many enthusiastic readers as any book that can be mentioned. We think the Rambles and Sketches are des tined to be as popular at least as any of his previously published works. There is not a dull chapter in the work, filled as it is with "an infinite variety." The author has am ple room and verge enough for tho employ ment of his fine lalents to great advantage, and most successfully has he accomplished the task. The biographical sketch of the author is interesting and "well considered," and adds much to the value of the book, which is got up in a very neat and attractive style by the publisher.— See Portland Trans script, Dec. 15th. Mr, Headley is one of themost promising wri ters of this country, and wo liavo here one of his liest books—or.e on which lie can safely rosl his fame. It possesses tho unfaliguing charms of perfect simplicity and truth. There is graceful frankness pervading the composition, which en gages the interest of the rcador in the author as well as in the subject. His rambles about Rome, Paria and London exhibit a thausund traits of un ingenuous nature, upon which a man of taste will delight to linger. We predict for this a salo equal to that of any of the author's works. [New York News. Tho collection is ono of which no Buthor nrod be ashamed. It consists, indued, of some of Mr. Headley'* most brilliant and highly fin ished compositions of those specimens of his abilities by which he may he judged with the greatest safety to his fsme as s word-painter and thinker.

Rv order of the Board of Managers. March 29, 1851. S. BRADFORD, Secreti t- GOlm2uasmcE>!l 9 53 of coffef. ABOUT two years ago a now discovery was made in Europe, consisting of a substitute for the ordinary store coffee, called Essence of Cofieo, which has gone into gen eral use with astonishing rapidity, not only among the poorer classes, who at once dis pensed with the use ol the celebrated Chick ory Coffee, but is now in general use in the wealthiest families and the first hotels, and is highly recommended by die medical fac ulty. It is extracted from pure, wholesome veg etables. and excels all similar preparations that have ever been offered to the public, either in this country or in Europe. Its su perior quality has already been attested to in the cities by some of the most eminent phys icians, and a number of the most distinguish ed of the clergy and other highly respectable citizens. Coffee made from this essence ac cording to the prescription obtains a more delicious and pleasant fitvor than the com mon store coffee, and is certainly more wholesome, especially for persons in deli cate health, which will be admitted by eve ry physician who will tuko the pains to test the natuie and properties of this essence. One paper costing only 12j ots., is equal to four pounds of store coffee, will be bright and clear without the application of any other ingredient to clarify or settle it. The public are therefore invited to givo this es sence at least a trial before they condemn it. A respectable merchant of Luzerne coun ty in writing of it says: "My customers have been using of the above Essence for some months past with general satisfaction j and Ido not hesitate to recommend it to the public.
