INQLH.H LITERATURE OF THE 1BTH CXHTTJBT.
Now Edition.
C A J. BIDDLE, No. fi South Fifth street, ;
Jt Philadelphia, have rocontly published a new, j
aturootype edition of
English Literature of the Nineteenth Century, j
On the plan of tU? author's ' Compendium of English
Literature," and supplementary to it. Designed for
colleges and advanced classes in schools as wel as
for private reading. By Charles D. Cleveland.
The "Compendium of English Literature," by Prof.
Cleveland, eomprises biographical sketches and se
lections from the writings of English authors, from
the fourteenth to the eighteenth contury, chronologi
cally arranged ; together with copious Notes* explan
atory, illustrative, Ac. The volume now advertised,
which is arranged on tho same plan as the " Com
pendium," eomprises in its list of authors suck as
flourished in the eighteenth century, but died in tho
presont; together with those striotly of tho nine
teenth century, whether living or doad.
The present edition of *' English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century" contains biographical sketches
and selections from tho writings of one hundred and
six authors, tho names of twonty-soven of whom did
nut appear in the table of contents of the former edi
tion ; together with many improvements throughout
the volume.
Prof. C.'s two volumes of Enelish Literature are
now extensively used ns toxt-tooks in colleges, acad
emies, and the higher class of seminaries, throughout
the IJnitod Btntes. The following opinion* relative
to " English Literature of the Nineteenth Century,"
are selected from a large number equally commenda
tory of tho work:
From Prof. Chan firry A. Guodrir/i, D. D., of Yal?
College.
" I consider Prof. Cleveland's ' English Literature
of the Nineteenth Century ' an appropriate sequel to
his 'Compendium.' Tho author ha* shown the same
just and delicate appreciation of literary excollenoe
in this, as in tho formor volume; and, as it reaches
down to our times, it will be still more interesting to
a large portion of the public, and especially to the
yoang. Few persons can understand what an amount
of reading, thought, nice discrimination, and labori
ous 001 densation of knowledge, uro requisite to the I
production of snch a work ; and just in proportion as
mon toil more extensively in this field, will be the
estimate they will put upon this rosult of the author's
labors."
From George B. Emerson, Esq., of Boston.
"I have oxamincd your ' English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century,' and I like it exceedingly It
is extremely well and fairly done. The biographical
notices are just and discriminating ; and, wtiilo they
aru long enough to gratify tho curiosity we have to
know something of an author, they are ho spirited as
to awaken a desire to know more. The selections
are admirable. I have adopted the work as a text
rook 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. A yd, loll, D. D., of Cinrinnati.
" 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 ricJtert collection of gems in
our language. Thrre is nothing in it I would omit,
and yet it is not too largo for popular use. Consi 1
ering the very brief limits to wbich you wore obliged
to confine yourself, I am surprised at the fullness and
richness of your biographical details. Yonr most
difficult and deli late task, however, was tho critical
judgment to be passed upen each author; and here
I think you havo been very happy?discriminating
and jast, and yet kind. * * But I would feel that
whatover I have said about the volume, however
true, ought to be considered of little worth, could
I not add?as I cheerfully do?a stro jt testimony to
it< high moral tone and eminently Christian spirit
The general reader cannot foil to be interested, the
student profited, the scholar delightod, and the man
of piety pleased, with your ' English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century.'

Nil BOOK BY BUY. JACOB ABBOTT.
HOLLO ON THE ATLANTIC,"
BEAUTIFULLY illustrated with original designs.
By Jacob Abbott.
" Rollo on the Atlantic " is the first book of a se
ries to bo pnblishod under the general title of Rollo's
Tour in Europe.
Extract from the Preface :
'? The books are intended to be books of instruc
tion, rather than of mere amusement.; and. in peru
sing them, tho roader may feel assurod that all the in
formation which they contain, not only in respect 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 witn fact. The main design of the narra
tive is thus the communication of useftil knowledge;
and everything whieh they eontain, except what is
striotly personal, in relation to the actors in tho story,
may be depended upon as exactly and scrupulously
true." Published by

the competition they encounter from American peri
odioals of a similar class, and of numerous lir/ertu

riodicals. This fact shows clearly the high estimatioi
in which they are hekl by the intelligent reading
public, and affords a guarantee that tbey ?ra extab

THK GKKAT AMERICAN TKMMRAU'iJ TUB.
MBS. BEN DABBY;
OR,
|THK WEAL AND WOE OF SOCIAL LIFE.
One Volume 12mo, SI.
THE object uf thin tale is to exhibit iu different
phases, in high life and low life, the aeeursed
effects of intemperate drinking, the bane of social
life, the curse of civilized man. The characters are
well and sharply drawn, and the various scenes are
described,with much spirit and graphic effect. * *
# We are disposed to rogard the book' as tho best
ofits kind that has yet appeared.?Boston Traveller.
It is not often that we read a story of any kind,
but we havo broken our practice, and havo read this
book not ouly with pleasure, but with a gratification
which but very few novels havo ever afforded us. It
is a quiet and simple, but still striking and effective
picture of American social lifo.?Chicago Tribune.
Written with marked ability.?Zotumnlle Courier.
A thrilling picture of tho effects of that infernal
bano of social lifo, intemperance.?KieJimoinl Pal
ladium.
The style is attractive and fascinating ; there is a
freshness and originality about it, that is very pleas
ing. * * * One of its chief merits is the excel
lence ofits conversations.? Enquirer.
Has so many thrilling passages and well drawn
charact?rt, that you read it with absorbed attention.
It cannot fail to achieve for Mrs. Collins an enviablo
popularity. She takos us with her to tho drunkard s
home, and tells of the hunger and tho tear, the toil
and tho suffering, that are there. (She paints, with
a woman's delicate skill, the meek patience, tho
long-abused, but unchanging lovo of tho drunkard ?
wife, touches the deepest chords of the heart, and
makes them vibrate with pity and with indignation.
Chrittuiu Herald.
Though Mrs. Collins has already host* of adini
rers ol hur literary productions, this work, we pre
dict, will increase that number ten fold, and give
her a reputation worthy of hor high talents.? New
Albany Tribune.
- The stylo is easy, natural, beautiful, chaste, and
?t times very eloquent. We would eomaond it es
pecially to young ladies, that they may see to what
dangora tbey are exposed, in forming alliances with
the fashionable in high life.?Ohio Organ.
A deeply interesting and powerful work. It vivid
ly portrays some of the terrific exploits of strong
drink in both high and low lifo. Nor are such scenes
as it depicts either imaginary or fow. Let this book
circulate. It has a boneftcent aim, and is the vehicle
of admirably old and most salulary lessons.? Fles
hy terian.
? * * Flas sketched it in its daintiest form of
fascination, as well as in its giiui and dismal a*p?<-t
of opeff degradation. Barely has a woman vontured
to hold the torch to such a dark recoss of human
woe.?Daily Time*.
We know of no passage, anywhere, more uniquely
beautiful, more intensely absorbing, more ovcrpow
ering in the pathetic, than the thirty-fourth chapter.
It is indeed a gem We doubt whether the celeliru*
tcd chapter devoted to the death of Eva, in Uncle
Tom's Cabin, is superior. * ? * It is certainly
tho most powerful temperance talc that we have ever
perused.?Join mil ami Mr$*cnger.
Beautifully written ? ? * A work of great
strength and power.? ffonprl Herald.
* * * Tho incidents dramatic, and the inter
est intense to thu end. ?Ohio Siotrsni.ni.
Wields an easy |wn, and sketches men and man
ners to the lifo.? Prethytfna 11 Ilrrald.
Oraphic. truthful, chaste, and deeply affecting,.the
story winds itself into our feelings, and we bocome
absorbed In the plot, as if we beheld before our own
eyes the realities of the author s delineation*.? Dai
