lam directed, "that every person except

This Ink is now so well established in

Extracts from opinions of the Press.
Sacred Semes and Characters —By the Rev-
J. T. Headley. This work may be very
properly considered a companion to the
" Sacred Mountains,' by ffie same author.
Its object is lo 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 lo imbibe its spirit,-
feel its power, and partake of its salvation;
in a word, to prize in some measure as it
deserves, this treasure which is indeed be
yond price. We predict for it a circulation
far beyond any of the author's former works.
[ The News, Jan. 7th.
Rambles and Sketches —By Rev. J. T. Head
ley. We have not for a long time sat down
lo a book with more pleasing anticipations,
or found those anticipations more hilly re
alized, than in the 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, as popular and
found nt least as many enthusiastic readers
as any book that can be mentioned. We
think the Rambles and Sketches are des
tined to he as popular at least as any of his
previously published works. There is not a
dull chapter in the work, tilled as it is with
"an infinite variety." The author has am
ple room and verge enough for the employ
ment of his fine talents 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, Pec. 15 th.
Mr, Headley isonc of themost promising wri
ters of this cnuiitiv, nnd wo have here one of bis
liesl books—or.c on which ho ran safely rest his
fume. It possesses the unfatiguing charms ol
perfect simpli lily and truth. There is graceful
trunkness pervading the composition, which en
gages the interest of the reader in the author as
well as in the subject. His rambles about Rome,
I'uris and London exhibit a thousand tiaita of ao
ingenuous naluie, upon which a man of taste
will delight to linger. VVe predict for this a
sale rq ial *.o that ot any of the author's works.
[New York News.
The collection is one of which no uuthor
need he ashamed. It consists, indeed, of some
of Mr. Hoadlcy's most brilliant and highly fin
ished compositions of those specimens of his
abilities by winch he may ho judged with the
greatest safety to his fame as a word-painter and
thinkei. [New York Tribune,
