CLEVELAND* ENGLISH LITERATURE OF THE 19TH CENTURY. Now Edition. EC. A J. lilDDLE, No. # South Fifth street, ? Philadelphia, havo recently published a new, stereotype edition of English Literature of the Nineteenth Century, On the plan of the author'* " Compendium of English Literature," and supplementary to it. Designed for colleges and advanced clussos in schools as wel as for private reading. By Charles 1>. Cleveland. The " Compendium of English Literature," by Prof. Cleveland, comprises biographical sketches and se lections from the wriliugs of English authors, from ! the fourteenth to the eighteenth century, ehronologi eally arranged ; together with copious Notes, explan- i atory, illustrative, Ac. The volume now advertised, which is arranged on tho 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, whethor living or doad. The present edition of ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century " contains biographical sketches and selections from the writings of one hundrod and six authors, the names of twonty-seven of whom did not appear in the table of contonts of tho former edi tion ; together with many improvements throughout the volume. Prof. C.'s two volumes of Enrlish Literature are now extensively used ns text-books in collogus, acad emies, and the higher class of seminaries, throughout tho United States. The following opinions relative to "Euglish Literature of ths Ninotocnth Contury," are selected from a large number equally commenda tory of the work: From Prof. Chauncry A. QoodrUh, D. D., of Yale College. " I consider Prof. Cleveland's ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century ' an appropriate sequel to his ' Compendium.' Tho author nas shown the same just and delicate appreciation of literary oxcellonce in this, as in tho former volume; and, as it reaohes down to our times, it will be still more interesting to a large portiop of the public, and especially to the young. Few persons can understand what an amount of reading, thought, nico discrimination, and labori ous coi densation >f knowledge, are requisito 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 the author'! labors." From George B. Emerson, Esq., of Boston. "I havo examined your ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century,' and I like it exceedingly It is extremely well and fairly done. Tho biographical notices are just and discriminating ; and, wliile they are long enough to gratify tho curiosity we have to know something of an author, they are so spirited as to awaken a desire to know more. The selections are admirablo. I have adopted the work as a text oook for my first class, every individual of which is now preparing, under its guidance, to give a fuller aoBount of the writings of some one choson author." From Rev. B. P. Aydrlott, 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 rol/ertion of gems in our language. There is nothing in it I would omit, and y?t it is not too largo for popular use. Consid ering the very brief limits to wbich you were obliged to confine yourself, I am surprised at the fullners and richness of your biographical details. Tour most difficult and delicate task, however, was the critical judgment to be passed upen each author; and here I think you havo been very happy?discriminating and jost, and yet kind. * * But I would feel that whatever I hare said about the volume, however true, ought to be considered as of little worth, could I not ada?a* I cheerfully do?a stro g testimony to iti high moral tone and eminently Christian spirit. The general reader cannot fail to be interested, the student profited, the scholar delightod, and the man of piety pleased, with your ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century.'

By Jacob Abbott. " Rollo on the Atlantic " ia the first book of a se ries to be published under the general title of Rollo'a Tonr 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, the reader may feel assured that all the in formation which they contain, not only in respect to the countries visited, and to the oustoms, usages, and modes of life that are doecribed, but also in regard to the general character of the incidents and adventures that the young travellers meet with, ia in most strict accordance with fact. The main design of the narra tive ia thus the communication of uaeful knowledge; and everything which they contain, except what ia atrictly personal, in rotation to the actors in the story, may be depended upon as exactly and scrupulously true."

" If any State dooms the retail and internal traffic; in ardent spirits iujurious to it? oitisens, and calcu lated to produce idlenoss, vice, or debauchery, I see nothing in the Constitution of tho United (States to prevent it from regulating or reatraining the traffic, or from prohibiting it altogether, if it thinks proper." Chief Justice Taney. ON or bofore the 1st of January, 1854, tho Exoou tive Uouiuiittoo of the New York State Temper ranee Society will issue the first number of a Month ly Temperance Journal, under tho titlo of" The I'ho HIBITIOKIST." Its Size.?It will bo printed on a double medium sheet, making eight quarto pagos, of four columns to a pugo; and, excluding advertisements, oach number will contain an amount of reading mattor equal at least to that furnished by our larger-sised daily jour nals, or to that of an ordinary duodecimo volume of 150 pages. Its Object.?To advocato tho Cause of Tomper anoo generally, and especially the Legislative Prohibit tion of tho Traffic in Intoxicating Beverages, to pre pare the minds of the musses for such Prohibition, by showing its expediency and Necessity, and to secure, by all tho inHucnce it may legitimately oxert, the rigorous enforcement of Prohibitory Laws when ob tained. Ith Firm).?Dealing with general principles, with arguments alike applicable to every community where the traffic exists and with facts illustrative of these arguments and principles, the paper will be National in its spirit, in its scope, in its purpose, and, we trmt, it will be National in its circulation and influence. Such is our aim and expectation. We desire to see the Principle of Prohibition established in State after State, till it becomes the recognised polioy of the Na tion. It is our ambition to boar a part in this great work, and to this end The Prohibitionist is estab lished, not as tho organ of a society morely, but of a Great Rekormatohv Movement. Its Necessity.?The existing Temperance Jour nals have little, if any, circulation outsido of tho Tern poranco Ranks. Their prico almost nocessarily re stricts them to the friends of the causo. The Pro hibitionist is designed for circulation (instead of tracts) among the indifferent and tho hostile. For this purpose It is put at a prico so low as to enable the friends of Tomporance in evory school district, by combined action and at an inconsiderable expense, to place a copy in oach family that will consent to re ceive it. Its Price.?One copy for one year - - $0 50 Throe, to one address, one year 1 00 Seven do. do. - - 2 00 And for each additional four copies, $1.00 will bo added, for any quantity loss than fifty copios. For fifty copies to one address - ? $11 00 For 100 do. do. - - - 20 00 No subscription roeeived for less than one year, and in every case tho order mast be accompaniod by tho money. The paper will be under the general direction of the Executive Committee, who have received ample assurances of literary aid from not a few of the ablest and most eminent writers in the temperanee ranks throughout the Union. The work will be stereotyped, and back numbers can be supplied to new subscribers at any time during the year. All orders should bo addressed to 0. Scovill, Pub lishing Agent, Albany. Communications for tho paper, or in relation to the interests of the cause generally, should be directed to Win. H. Burleigh, Corresponding Socrotary.

It is beautifully printed with type oast oxpre.-ly for it, and on tbo Cost of clear white paper, with wide margin, so that tbo numbers can bo uusily stitched or bound together. A copious Indox is weekly added, which ail! be fully amplified ut tbo end of the year, for the bou:.d work. Comprehensive in its diameter, Each volume will contain all matter worth record ing, which transpires either at home or abroad, uud which can serve to instruct or interest tho Farmer, the Planter, tho Fruit-tirowor, the Gardener and th* Stock Breeder; thus making: it tho most com plete and useftil Agricultural Publication of tho day. Correct and valuahle Market Reports. The Markets will be oarefully reported, giving the actual transactions which teko place fiom week to woek, in Grain, Provisions, Cattle, Ac.; thus keep ing our readers constantly and reliably advised as to their interests. During the past year, tho knowledge obtained from those Markot Reports alone has saved our readers thousands of dollars, by informing thorn of the best time to soil or purchase. Such a Paper is demanded by the Farming Community. The publishers confidently believe that the agri culturist* of this oountry are becoming too much atvake to tho demands of their own calling to ba longor xatisfiod with the slow monthly issues of a pa* per professedly devotod to their interests, or to trust alone to tho irresponsible extracts in a "farmer's column," so popular just now in papers ohiefly devo ted to business, politics, or litoratuie; and tbey look for the united support of all the intelligent farmers of this country in their continued offort to furnish a weekly paper of a high and reliable character, whinh shall be progressive, and at the name time cautious and conservative in all its teachings. Essentially an Agricultural Paper. The Agriculturist will not depart from its legiti mate tphore to catch popular favor by lumbering up its pages, with the silly, fictitious literature, and light, miscellaneous matter ot tbe dav; it has a high er aim; and a small part only of its space will be devoted to matters not immediatelv pertaining to the great business of Agriculture. The household as well as tbe 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 worthlessness exposed. It is the aim of the publishers to keep this paper under ' the guidance of those who will make it a standard work, whfeh shall communicate to its readers only that which is safe and roliablo. An Independent Journal. The American Agriculturist stand* upon its own merits; and the truthfulness, zeal, and ability, which it brings to the support of the interests of tbe fanner. It is untrammeled by any collateral busi ness connections whatever; nor is it the organ of any clique, or tbe puffing machine of any man or thing. Thoroughly independent in all points, its ample pa ges are studiously given alone to the support and im provement of the great agricultural class. Editorial Department.
