Philadelphia, havo recently published a now, stereotypo 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 colleges and advancod classes in schools as wel as ft>r private reading. By Charles L>. Cleveland. The "Compendium of English Literature."by Prof. Cleveland, comprises biographical sketches and se lections from the writing* ot English authors, from the fourteenth to the eighteenth century, chronologi cally arranged; 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 such as flourished in the eighteenth century, but dird in the present; together with those striotly of the nine teenth century, whothor living or dead. The present odition of ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century " contains biographical sketches and selections from thu writings of one hundred and six authors, the names of twenty-seven of whom did not appear in the tablo 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-books in colleges, acad emies, and the higher class of sominaries, throughout the United States. The following opinion* relative to " English Littfature of the Nineteenth Century," are selected frouni large number equally commenda tory of the work: From Prof. Chan urn) A. Goodrich, D. D., of YaU Collage. " I consider Prof. Cleveland's ' English Literature of tho Nineteenth Century ' an appropriate sequel to his 'Compendium.' The author hat shown the same just and delicate appreciation of literary excollence 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 publio, and especially to the young. Few persons can understand what an amount of reading, thought, nice discrimination, and labori ous coi densation of knowledge, are 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 the author's labors." From George B. Emerson, Esq., of Boston. " I have examined 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, While they are long eoough to gratifv 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 admirable. 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 account of the writings of some one chosen author." From Rfv. 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 rithest collection of genu in our language. There is nothing in it I would omit, and yet it is not too large 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 "del bate task, however, was the oritioal judgment to be passed upen each author; and here I think you have been rtty nappy?discriminating and just, and yet kind. * * But I would feel that whatever I have said about the velome, however true, ought to be oonsiderod as of little worth, oonld I not add?as I cheerfully do?a stro g testimony to it* high moral tone and eminently Christian spirit. The genera] reader cannot fiaii to be interested, the student profited, the scholar delighted, and the man of piety pleased, with your ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century.'

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 oontain, not only in respect to the countries visited, and to the customs, usages, and modes of life that are described, hut also in regard to the general character of the incidents and adventures that the young traveller* meet with, is In most striet accordance with faet.

Has so many thrilling passages and wall-drawn characters, that you read it with absorbed attention. It cannot fail to achieve for Mrs. Collins an enviable popularity. She takes us with her to the drunkard's homo, and tells of the hunger and the fear, the toil and the suffering, that are there. She paints, with a woman's delicate skill, the meek patience, the long-abused, but unchanging love of the drunkard's wife, touohes the deepest chords of the heart, and makes them vibrate with pity and with indignation.
