ENULIHH LITERATURE OF THE 19TH CENTURY.
Now Edition.
EO. it J. RIDDLE, No 6 South Fifth street,
? Philadelphia, have recently published a now,
stereotype odition of
English Literature of the Nineteenth Century,
On the plan of the author's -'Compendium of English
Literature," and supplementary to it. Designed for
oolleges and advanced olosses in schools an wel ax
for private reading. Uy Charles D. Cleveland.
The " Coiuj?eudium of English Literature," by Prof.
Cleveland, comprises biographical sketches and se
lections from the writings of Kngliah authors, from
the fourteenth to the eighteenth century, chronologi
cally arranged ; together with eopioui Notes, explan
atory, illustrative, Ac. The volume now advertiaed,
which ia arranged on the same plan as the " Com
pendium," comprises in its list of authors suck as
flourished in the eighteenth century, but died in the
present; together with those strictly of the nine
teenth century, whother living or dead.
The present edition of 1 English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century" contains biographical sketches
and seleetiona from tho writings of one hundred and
six authors, tho names of twonty-seven of whom did
not appear in the table of content* of tho former edi
tion ; together with many improvements throughout
the volume.
Prof. C.'s two volumes of English Literature are
now extensively usod ns text-books in colleges, acad
emies, and the higher class of seminaries, throughout
the I'nited Sfcatea. The following opinion* rclativo
to "English Litoraturo of the Nineteenth Century,"
are selected from a large number equally commenda
tory of the work:
From Prof. Chaunce-u A. Goodrich, D. D., of Yah
College..
" I consider Prof. Cleveland's ' English Literature
of tho Nineteenth Century ' an appropriate soquel to
his 1 Compendium.' Tho author bai shown the same
just and delicate appreciation of literary exoollonoo
in this, as in tho formor volume; and, as it reaohes
down to our times, it will be still more interesting to
a large portion of the public, and especially to tho
yonng. Few persons can understand what an amount
of reading, thought, nico discrimination, and labori
ous eoi densation of knowledge, are requisite to the
production of auch a work ; and just in proportion as
mon toil more extensively in this field, will be the
estimate they will put upon this result of the author's
labors."
Front George B. Emerson, Esq., of Boston.
" I have examined your ' English Litoraturo of the
Nineteenth Century,' and 1 like it exceedingly It
ia extremely well and fairly done. The biographioal
notices are just and discriminating j and, wliilo they
are long enough to gratify the curiosity we havo to
know something of an author, they are so spirited as
to awakon a desiro to know more. The selections
are admirable. I have adopted the work as a text
?ook for my first class, every individual of which is
now preparing, under its guidance, to givo a fuller
account of tho writings of some one chosen author."
From Rev. B. P. Ayde.lott, D. D., of Cincinnati.
" I have examined with much care, and still great
er plossnre, and, I trust, uot a little profit, your
' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century.' *
# It is, I believe, the richest collection of genu 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 wore obliged
to confine yourself, I am surprised at theftillness and
richness of your biographical details. Yonr most
diffioult and delicate task, however, was tho critical
judgment to be passod uptn each author; and here
I think you have been very happy?discriminating
and just, and yet kind. * * But I would feel that
whatever I have said about the volume, however
true, ought to be considered M of little worth, could
I oot add?as I cheerfully do?a stro -g testimony to
its high moral tone and eminently Christian spirit.
The general reader cannot fail to ne interested, the
student profited, th? scholar delighted, and the man
of piety pleased, with your ' English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century.'

" ROLLO OH 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 Proface :
' The books are intended to be books of instruc
tion, rather than of more amusement; and, in pern
sing them, the reader may feel assured that all the in
formation which they contain, not only in respect to
the countries visited, and to the customs, usages, and
modes of life that are doscribod, but also in regard to
the general character of the incidents ami adventures
that the yonng travellers meet with, is in most strict
accordance wiUi fact. The main design of the narra
tive is thus the communication of useful knowledge;
and everything which they contain, cxcopt what is
strictly personal, in relation to the actors in tho story,
may be depended npon as exactly and scrupulously
true.*' Published by

PROSPKCm OP TUB PROHIBITIONIST.
" If any Statu dooms the retail and internal traffic
in ardent spirit* injurious to iU oitiseiu, and caluu
latud to*product* idleness, vioo, or debauchery, I sou
nothing in the Constitution of the United StateB to
prevent it from regulating or retraining the traffic,
or from prohibiting it altogether, if it thinks proper.''
Chief Justice Taney.
ON or before the 1st of January, 1854, the Execu
tive Committee ot the New \ork Statu Tompor
rance Society will issue the first number of a Month
ly Tem iterance Journal, under the title of" Thb Pro
HIBITIONI8T."
Its Si/k.?It will bo printed on a double medium
sheet, making eight quarto pages, of four columns to
a page; and, excluding advertisements, each number
will contain an amount of reading matter equal at
loast to that (urnishod by our larger-sized daily jour
nals, or to that of an ordinary duodecimo volume ol
160 pages.
Its Ub.jbct.?To advocate tho Cause of Tompor
anoe generally, and especially the Legislative Prohibi
tion of the Traffic in Intoxicating lievuragrs, to pre
pare tha minds of tho masses for such Prohibition, by
showing its expediency and Necessity, and to secure,
by all the influence it may legitimately exert, tho
vigorous enforcement of Prohibitory Laws when ob
tained.
Its Fikld.?Dealing with genoral principles, with
arguments alike applicable to ovory community whero
thn traffic exists and with facts illustrative of these
arguments and principles, the paper will be National
in its spirit, ip its scope, in its purpose, ami, we trust,
it will be National in its circulation und influence.
Such is our aim and expectation. Wo desire to soc
the Principle of Prohibition established in State after
State, till it becomes tho recognised policy of the Na
tion. It is our ambition to bear a part in this great
work, and to this end The Puohibitiohist is estab
lished, not as the organ ot a society merely, but of a
Great Reformatory Movkmknt.
Its Nbckssity.?The existing Totnperanco Jour
nals have little, if any, circulation outside of tho Tem
perance Ranks. Thoir prico almost necossarily re
stricts them to tho friends of tho cause. The Pro
hibitionist is designed for circulation (instead of
tracts) imong the indifferent and the hostile. For
this purpose it is put at a price so low iu to enable
tho friends of Temporance in ovory school district, by
combined action and at an Inconsiderable expense,
to place a copy in each family that will consent to re
ceive it.
Irs Prick.?Ono copy for ono year - - $0 50
Three, to one address, ono year 1 00
Seven do. do. - - 2 00
And for each additional four copies, $1.00 will be
added, for any quantity less than fifty copies.
for fifty copios to one address - - $11 00
or 100 do. do. - ? - 20 00
No subscription received for loss than ono year,
and in every cuse the order must be accompanied by
tho money.
The paper will be under the general direction of
the Executive Committeo, who have roceived ample
assurances of literary aid from not a few of the ablest
and most eminent writers in the temperance ranks
throughout tho Union.
The work will be stereotyped, and back numbors
can be supplied to new subscribers at any time during
the year.
All orders should he addressed to 0. Scovill, Pub
lishing Agent, Albany.
Communications for tbo paper, or in relation to tho
interests of the cause generally, should be diroctod to

ciety : EDWARD C. DEL A VAN, President.

[?/- The Committee request all oditori in tho Uni
ted States to give the above one insertion in their
eolnmns. To all who ooinply with this request, we
will send tho Prohibitionist for one year, without an
exchango, unless they ohoose to add to our obligation
by sending their papers also, which would, of course,
be most thankfully received. Jan. 2?dtf

THE WEAL AND WOE OF SOCIAL LIFE.
One Volume 12mo, SI.
THE objout of this tale in to exhibit in different
pbasos, in high life an<l low lifo. the accursed
effects of iotomperate drinking, the bano of social
life, tbe curso of civilized man The characters are
well and sharply drawn, and tho various scenes aro
described with much spirit and graphic effect. * *
* Wo aro disposed to regard the book as the best
of its kind that has yet appeared.?Boston Traveller.
It is not often that wo road a story of any kind,
but wo have broken our practice, and have read this
book not only with pleasure, but with h gratification
which but very few novels havo evor afforded ub. It
is a quiet and simplo, but still striking and effective
picture of American social life.?Chicago Tribune.
Written with marked ability.?Zanrsville Courier.
A thrilling picture of tho effects of that infernal
bane of social lifo, intomporance.?Kiehinoiul Pal
ladium.
The style is attractive and fascinating ; there is a
freshness and originality about it, that is very pleas
ing. ? * * One of its cbiof merits is the excel
lence of its conversations.?Enquirer.
Has so many thrilling passngof and well-drawn
characters, that you read it with absorbed attention
It cannot fail to achieve for Mrs. Collius an enviable
Copularity. She takes us with hor to th^drunkard's
ouie, and tells of the hunger and tho tear, the toil
aud tho suffering, that aro there. She paints, with
a woman's dellcato skill, the tnook patience, the
long-abusod, but unchanging love of tho drunkard's
wife, touches the deepest chords of tbe heart, and
makes them vibrato with pity aud with indignation.
Christian Herald.
Though Mrs. Collins has alroady hosts of admi
rer* ol her literary productions, this work, wo pre
dict, will increoso that number ten fold, and give
her a reputation worthy of her high talents. ?S'rv
Albany Tribune,
The style is oasy, natural, beautiful, chaste, and
at times very eloquent. We would commond it es
pecially to young ladios, that they may sue to what
dangers (bey aro exposed, in forming aliiancos with
the fashionable in high life.?OJuo Organ.
A deeply interesting and powerful work It vivid
It portrays some of tbe terrific exploits of strong
drink in both high and low life. Nor are such scenes
km it depicts either imaginary or few. . l^>t this book
circulate It has a beneficent aim. and is the vehicle
of admirably old and most salutary lessonPres
byterian.
? * * Has sketched it in its daintiest form of
fascination, as well as in its giim and dismal aspect
of open degradation. Rarely has a woman ventured
to hold tho torch to such a dark recess of human
woe.? Daily Tt mrs.
We know of no passage, anywhere, more uniquely
beautiful, more intensely absorbing, more overpow
ering in the pathetic, than tho thirty-fourth chapter
It is indcod a gem We doubt whether the colebra
Lod chapter devoted to the death of Kva, in lUirlr
I S Cabin, is MMhr * * * It ig certainly
Tom' r?
the most powerful temperance tale that we have ever
perused.?Journal and Metsenger.
Beautifully written. ? * ? A work of great
strength and power.?Gutptl 11 raid.
* * * The incidents dramatic, and the inter
est intense to the end.? Ohio Statesman.
Wields an easy pen. and sketches men and man
nera to the life.? Presbyterian Herald.
Graphic, truthful, chaste, and deeply affecting, the
?tory winds itself into our feelings, and wo become
absorbed in the plot, as if we boheld before our own
eyes tbe realities of tbe author's delineations.? Dai

Such a Paper is demanded by the Farming
Community.
The publisher? confidently in lieve that the agri
culturists of this country are becoming too much
awako to the demands of their own calling to be
longer satisfied with the slow monthly issues of a ) u
per professedly devoted to their interests, or to trust
alone to tha irresponsible extract" in a " far me i s
column," so popular just now in papers chiefly devo
ted to business, polities, or literature; and they look
for the united support of all the intelligent I'?uiih rs
of this country in their continued effort to furnish a
! weekly paper of a high and reliable character, win- h
. shall be progressive, uud at the same time cautious
! and conservative in all its teachings.
Essentially art Agricultural Paper.
The Agnevlivritt will not depart from itslcgiti
* mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumbering lp
i its pages, with the silly, fictitious literature, and
! light, miscellaneous mailer of the dav; it has a high
er aim; and a small part Only of its space will be
; devoted to matters not immediately )>ertaiuing to the
1 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 ami nostrums
afloat in the community will ho tried by roliable sci
entific rules, and their worthlessness exposed. It is
the aim of the publishers to keep this'paper undtr
the guidance of those who will make it a standard
work, which shall communicate to its readers only
1 that which is safe and ruliahle.
