NO. 20. CLKVKUNUI ENGLISH LITE HA TUBE OF THE 19TH CENTUBY. . Now Edition. EC. A J. B1DDLE, No. 6 South Fifth street, ? Philadelphia, have recently published a now, stereotype edition of English Literature of Ike Nineteenth Century, On the plan of the author's14 Compendium of English Literature," and supplementary to it. Designed for colleges and advanced classes in schools as wol as forprivate reading. By Charles D. Cleveland. The " Compendium of English Literature," by Prof. Cleveland, comprises biographical skutohes and se lections from the writings of English authors, from tho fourteenth to the eighteenth century, ohronologi cally arrangod; together with copious Notes, explan atory, illustrative, Ac. The volume now advertised, which is arranged on the same plan as the " Com pendium," comprises in its list of authors suoh as flourished in the eighteenth century, but died in the present; together with those strictly of tho nine teenth century, whether living or doad. The present edition of "English Literature of the Nineteenth Century " contains biographical sketches from the writings of one hundred and stx authors, the names of twenty-seven of whom did not appear in the tablo of contents of tho former edi tion ; togethor with many improvements throughout the volume. Prof. C.'s two volume* of English Literature are now extensively usod as text-books in colleges, acad emies, and the higher class of seminaries, throughout the United States. The following opinion* relative to "English Litorature of the Nineteenth Contury," are selected from a large number equally commenda tory of the work: From. Prof. Chaunery A. Good nth, D. D., of Yale College. " I consider Prof. Cleveland's ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Contury ' an appropriate sequel to his ' Compendium.' The author nai shown tho same just and dolicate appreciation of literary cxcollence in this, as in tho formor volume; and, as it reaches down to our times, it will beVtill more interesting to a large portion of the public, and especially to the young. Few persons oan understand wnat an amount of reading, thought, nice discrimination, and labori ous coi densation of knowledge, ure requisite to the production of such a work ; and just in proportion as men toil more extensively in this field, will be the estimate they will put upon this result of tho author's labors." From George B. Enter son, lisy., of Boston. " I have examined your ' English Litorature of tfie Nineteenth Century,' and I like it exceedingly It is extremely well and fairly done. Tho biogruphioal notices are just and discriminating ; and, While they are long enough to gratify the curiosity we havo to know something of an author, tbey are so spirited as to awaken a desire to know more. The selections are admirable. I have adopted the work as a text nook for my first class, every individual of which is now preparing, under its guidance, to give a fuller account of the writings of some one chosen author." From Rev. B. P. Ayde/ott, D. D., of Cincinnati. " I have examined with much care, and still great er pleasure, and, I trust, not a little profit, your ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century.' * * It is, I believe, the richest collection of gems in our language. There is nothing in it I would omit, and yet it is not too largo for popular use. Consid ering the very brief limits to which you were obliged to confine yourself, I am surprised at the fullness and richness of your biographical details. Your most difficult and delicate task, however, was tho critical judgment to be passod upen each author; and here I think you have been very happy?discriminating and j ast, and yet kind. * * But I would feel that whatever I have said about the Tolume, however true, ought to be considered as of little worth, could I not add?as I cheerfully do?a stro g testimony to it* high moral tone and eminently Christian spirit. The general reader cannot fail to be interested, the student profited, the scholar delighted, and the man of piety ploased, with your ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century.'

Derby, Cincinnati; Jew ett A Co., Cleveland; and by booksellers generally. Jan 2?2d2w NEW BOOK BY ?EV. JACOB ABBOTT. "EOLLO OK THE ATLANTIC," BEAUTIFULLY illustrated with original designs. By Jacob Abbott. " Rollo on the Atlantic " is the first book of a se ries to be published under the general title of Rollo's Tour in Europe. Extract from the Preface : " The hooks arc intended to be books of instruc tion, rathor than of mere amusement; and, in peru sing them, the reader may feci assured that all the in formation which thoy contain, not only in rospect to tho countries visited, and to the customs, usages, and modes of life that are described, but also in regard to tho general character of the incidents and advontures that the young travellers meet with, is in most strict accordance with fact. The main design ot the narra tive is thus the communication of useftil knowledge; and everything which they contain, except what is strictly personal, in relation to the actors in the story, may be detwnded upon as exactly and scrupulously true."

ELEVENTH VOLUME OF THE AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST, THE LEA DINU Weekly Agricultural Puper of the Country. T1IE AMERICAN agriculturist, a weekly Periodical of sixteen large quarto pages, making an anuual volume of 8.'12 pages of nearly double the site of those in the first tun volumes of the Agricul turist. It is beautifully printod with type cast expressly for it, and on tho best of cloar white paper', with wide margin, so that the numbers can be easily stitched or bound together. A copious Index is weekly added, which will be fully auiplifiod at the end of the year, for the bound work. Comprehensive in its Character, Each volume will contain all matter worth record ing, which transpires either at home or abroad, and which can serve to instruct or interest tho Farmer, the Planter, tho Fruit-Orowor, the Marduner and the Stock Brooder; thus making it the most com plete and useful Agricultural Publication of the day. Correct and valuable Market Reports.' Tho Markets will be carefully reported, giving the actual transactions which tako place from week to weok, in (irain, Provisions, Cattle, Ao.; thus keep ing our readers constantly and reliably advised as to their interests. During tho past year, the knowledge obtained from those Market Roporta alone has saved our readers thousands of dollars, by informing them of the best time to soil or purchase. Such a Paper is demanded by the Farming Community. Tho publishers confidently believe that the agri culturists of this coantry are becoming too much awako to tho demands of their own calling to be longer satisfied with the slow monthly issues of a pa per profossodly devoted to their interests, or to trust alone to the irresponsible extracts in a "farmers column," so popular just now in papers ehielly devo ted to husinoss, politics, or literature; and they look for the united support of all the intelligent fanners of this country in their continued effort to furnish a weekly paper of a high and reliable character, which shall bo progressive, and at the samo time cautious and conservative in all its teachings. Essentially an Agricultural Paper. The Agrxcidtvritt will not depart from its legiti mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumbering up its pages, with the silly, fictitious literature, and light, miscellaneous mutter ot the day; it has a high er aim; and a small part only of its space will bs devoted to matters not immediately pertaining to the great business of Agriculture. The household as well as the out-door work of the farm will receive a due share of attention. The humbugs and nostrums afloat in the community will be tried by reliable sci entific rales, and their wortblessnoss exposed. It is the aim of the publishers to keep this paper under the guidance of those who will make it a standard work, which shall eoinmanicate to its readers only that which is safe and roliable. An Independent Journal. The American Agrimlturiit stands upon Us own merits; and the truthfulness, teal, and ftT^hity, which it brings to the support of the intorests of the farmer. It is untrammeled by any collateral busi ness connections whatever; nor is it the organ of any clique, or the puffing machine of any man or thing. Thoroughly indefiendent in all points, its ample j>? ges aro studiously given alone to tho support and im provement of the great agricultural class. Editorial Department. The American Agrimhurint is under the editorial supervision of Mr. A. B. Allen, its principal editor for the past ten years, and Mr Orange Judd, A.
