Compendium of Knglish Literature," ami supplementary to it. liosigned for colleges and advanced classes in schools as wel ax for private reading By Charles L>. Cleveland. Tho "Compendium of Kuglish Literature," by Prof Cleveland, comprises biogruuhical sketches and He lections from the Vritings or English authors, from tho fourteenth to the eighteenth eentury, chronologi cally arranged ; together with copious Notes, explan atory, illustrative, Ac. The Volume now advertised, whiuh is arranged on tho same plan ax the " Com pendium," comprises in its list of authors such as tiourished in tho eighteenth century, but died in tho Csont; together with thoso strictly of tho nino nth century, whether living or doad. Tho 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 twenty-seven of whom did not appear in the table of contents of tho former edi tion ; together with many improvements throughout the volume. Prof. C.'s two volumes of English Literature are now extensively used as text-boo ka in colleges, acad emies, and the higher doss of seminaries, throughout tho United States. The following opinion* relative to "English Literature of the Nineteenth Century," are selected from a largo number equally commenda tory of tho work: From Prof. Chnuncey A. Goodrich, D. D., of Yale College. " I consider Prof, Cleveland's ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century 1 an appropriate sequel to his 1 Compendium.' The author hai shown the same just and doliuate appreciation of literary excellence in this, as in tho formor volume; and, as it reaches down to our times, it will he still'more interesting to a large portion of the public, and especially to the young. Few persons can understand what an amount of reading, thought, nice discrimination, and labori ous coi dens&tion of knowledge, are requisite to the production of such a work ; and just in proportion as mon toil more extensively in this Bold, wdl be the estimate they will put upon this result of the author's labors." From George T). Emerson, Esq., of boston. "I have examined your ' English Litornturo of the Nineteenth Century,' anil I like it exceedingly It is extremely well and fairly done. The biographicul notices are just and discriminating; and, wliilo they ore long enough to gratify tho curiosity we havo to know something of an author, they nre so spirited as to awaken a desire to know. more. The selections are admirable. 1 have adopted the work as a text nook for my first class, every individual of which is now preparing, undor its guidance, to givo a fuller account of tho writings of some one choscn author." From Rev. B. P. Ay Mot t, 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 Ninetoenth Century.' * * It is, 1 believe, the richest collection of gems in our Imgungr. There is nothing in it I would omit, and yet it is not too large fur yopulttr use. Consid ering the very brief limits to wbich 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 the critical judgment to be pansod upon each author; and here I think you have boon very happy?discriminating and just, and yet kind. * * But I would feel that whatever I havo said about the volume, however true, ought to be considered ai of little worth, could I not add?as I cheerfully do?a stro >g testimony to it< high moral tono anil eminently Christian spirit. The general reader cannot fail to be interested, the student profiled, the scholar delighted, and the man of piety pleased, with your ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century.'

ELEVENTH VOLUME OP THE AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST, THE LKADINU Weekly Agricultural Paptrof the Country. THE AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST, a weekly Periodical ot sixteen large quarto pages, makit'g an anuual volume of 832 pages of noarly double the siso of those in the first ten volumes of the Agricul turist. It is beautifully printed with type cast expressly for it, and on the best of clear white paper, with wide margin, so that the numbers can be eofily stitched or bound together. A copious Index is weekly added, which will be fully amplified at tbo end of the year, for the bound work. Comprehensive in its Character, Each volume will contain all matter worth record ing, which trsnspires either ut homo or abroad, and which can serve to instruct or interest the Farmer, the Planter, the Fruit-Grower, the Gardener, and the Stork-Breeder; thus making it the most com plete and useful Agricultural Publication of the day. Correct and valuable Market Reports. The Markets will We carefully reported, giving the actual transactions which take place front week to week, in Grain. Provisions. Cattle, Ac.; thus keep ing onr readers constantly and reliably advised as to thoir interests During the past year, the knowledge obtained from theso Market Reports alono has saved our readers thousands of dollars, l?y informing them of the best time to sell or purchase. Such a Paper is demanded by the Farrm ng Community. The publishers confidently believe that the agri culturists of this country are becoming too much awake to the demands of thoir own calling to be longer satisfied with the slow monthly issues of a pa per professedly devoted to their interests, or to trust alone to the irresponsible extract* in a "farmer* column," so popular just now in papers chiefly devo ted to business, politics, or literature; and they look for the united support of all the intelligent farmers of this country in their continued effort to furnish a weekly paper of a high and reliable character, which shall be progressive, and at the same time cautious and conservative in all its teachings. Essentially an Agricultural Paper. The Asnruliurint 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 matter nl the day; it has a high er aim; and a small part only of its space will be devoted to matters not immediately pertaining to the great business of Agriculture. The household ns 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 ho tried by reliable sci entific rales, and their worthlessness exposed. It ia the aim of the publishers to keep this paper under the guidance of those who will make it a standard work, which shall communicate to its readers only that which is safe and reliable An Independent Journal. The Amrrtnm Agricuhturitt stand* upon it* own merits; and the truthfulness, seal, and ability, which it brings to the support of the interests of the farmer. It is untrauiuiebd by any collateral but<i ness connections whatever, nor is it th? organ of any clique, or the 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 provemont of the great agricultural class. Editorial Ue/Mirtment. The AnuriniH Agricuhuntt is under the editorial supervision of Mr A R. Allen, its principal editor for the past ten years, and Mr. Orange Judd, A. M., a thoroughly practical farmer and agricultural chemist They will be assisted by Prof. Naxh. who has been for a long time one of the most. ?ucces>ful farmers of New England, and is now Agricultural Profs?nr ot' Amherst College , Rev.
