ENGLISH L1TSBATUBB OF THE 10TB CBHTUBT.
Now Edition.
Ij* C. A J. BIDDLE, No. A South Fifth street,
J? Philadelphia, have recently published a new,
stereotype edition of
Knglish Literature of the Nineteenth Century,
On the plan of the author'* ?' Compendium of Knglish
Literature," and supplementary to it. Designed for
college and advanced classes in school* wet as
for private reading By Charles D. Cleveland.
The "Compendium of English Literature," by Prof
Cleveland, comprises biographical sketches and se
lections from the writings of Knglish authors, from
the fourteenth to the eighteenth century, chronologi
cally arranged ; together with copious Notes, oxplun
atory, illustrative, Ac. The volume now advertised,
which is arranged on the same plan as the " Com
Sendium," comprises in its list of authors suoh as
ourished in the eighteenth century, but dud in the
present; together with those strictly of the nine
teenth century, whether living or dead.
The present edition of ' Knglish Literature of the
Nineteenth Contury " contains biographical sketches
and selections from thu writings of one hundred and
six authors, the uauies of twenty-seven of whom did
nut appear in the table of contents ?f the 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 nigher class of seminaries, throughout
the llnitod States. The following opinion1* relative
to "English Literature of th?i Nineteenth Century,"
are selected from a largo number equally commenda
tory of tho work: "
From Prof. Chauncry A. Goodrich, D. D., of Yah
College.
" I consider Prof. Cleveland's ' English Literature
of tho Nineteenth Century ' an appropriate sequel to
his ' Compendium.' The author has shown the same
just and delicate appreciation of literary oxcollence
in this, as in tho former 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
young. Few persons can understand wnat an amount
of reading, thought, nico discrimination, and labori
ous cot 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'a
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, wtiile they
are long enough to gratify the curiosity we bavo 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
uook for mv first class, every individual of which is
now preparing, undor its guidance, to give a fuller
account of the writings of some one chosen author."
From Rev. B. P. Aydelott, D. D., of Cincinnati.
" I have examined with muoh care, and still great
er pleasure, and, I trust, not a little profit, your
' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century.' *
* fit is, I believe, the richest collection of gems in
our language. There is noihing in it 1 would omit,
and yet it is not too large for popular use. Consid
ering the very brief limits to wBich you were obliged
to confine voursolf, I am surprised at the fullness and
richness or your biographioal details. Your most
difficult and deli sate task, however, was tho oritieal
judgment to be passed upen 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 as of little worth, could
I not ada?as I ohoerfully do?a stro >g testimony to
its high moral tone and eminontlv Christian spirit
The general reador cannot fail to be interested, the
student profited, the scholar delighted, and the man
of piety pleased, with vonr ' English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century.'

" Hollo on the Atlantic " is the first book of a se

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 whiA they contain, not only in respect to
the oountrios visited, and to the customs, usages, and
modes of life that are described, but also in regard to
tho general character of the incideut* and adventures
that the young travellers meet with, is in most strict
accordance witn fact The main dosign of the narra
tive is thns the communication of useftil knowledge;
and everything which they contain, except what is
strictly personal, in relation to tho actor* in tho story,
may be depended upon as exactly and scrupulously
truo." Published by

THti GREAT AMKK1CAN TK.1IPBIt.MCK TUB.
MBS. BEN DABBY;
OR,
THE WEAL AND WOE OP SOCIAL LIFE.
One Volume 12mo, SI.
THE objeet of this tale is to exhibit in different
phases, in high life and low life, the accursed
effects of intemperate drinking, the bane of social
life, the curse of civilized man. The charaotors are
well and sharply drawn, and the various scones are
doscribod with much spirit and graphic effect. * *
# Wo are disposed to regard the book as the boat
of its kind that has yet appearod.?Button Traveller.
It is not often that we read a story of any kind,
but wo have broken our practioe, and have read this
book, not only with ploasuro, but with a gratification
which but very few novels have evor afforded us. It
is a quiet and simple, but still striking and effective
picture of American social life.?Chicago Tribune.
Written with markod ability.?Zanesville Courier
A thrilling picture of the effocts of that infernal
bano of social life, intemperanoe.?Richmond 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 of its conversations.?Enquirer.
Has so many thrilling passages and well-drawn
characters, that you read it with absorbed attention.
It cannot fail to achieve for Mrs. Collins an enviable
popularity. She takos us with her to the drunkard's
home, 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 meok patience, the
long-abused, but unchanging love of the drunkard's
wife, touches the deepest chords of the heart, and
makes them vibrate with pity and with indignation.
Christian Herald.
Though Mrs. Collins has already hosts of admi
rers of her literary productions, this work, we pre
dict, will increase that number ten-fold, and give
her a reputation worthy of her high talents.?New
Albany Tribune.
The style is easy, natural, beautiful, ohaste, and
at times very eloquent. We would commend it es
pecially to young ladies, that they may see to what
dangers they 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 oxploits of strong
drink in both high and low life. Nor are such scene*
as it depicts either imaginary or few. Let this book
circulate. It has a beneficent aim, and is the vehicle
of admirably old and most salutary lessons.? Fret,
byterian.
* * * Has sketched it in its daintiest form of
fascination, m well as in its glim and dismal aspect
of open degradation. Rarely has a woman ventnred
to hold the torch to such a dark recess of human
woe.? Daily Timet.
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 indeed a gem. We doubt whether the celebra
ted chapter dovotod to the death of Rva, in Uncle
Tom's Cabin, is superior. * ? * It is certainly
the most powerful tfuijx ranco tale that we have evor
perused.?Jout tutl una Messenger.
Beautifully written. * * * A work of great
strength and power.?Gospel Herald.
* * ? The incidents dramatic, and the inter
est intense to the end -Ohto Statesman.
Wields an easy pen, and sketches men and man
ners to the lifo.? Presbyterian Herald.
Graphic. truthful. chaste, and deeply affecting, the
story winds iUelf into our feelings, and we become
absorbed in the plot, as if wo beheld before our own
eyes the realities of the author's delineations?Dai
ly Sun.

Suck a Paper is demanded by the Farming
Community.
Tho publishers confidently boliove that the agri
culturists of this country are becoming too much
awake to the demands of thoir own calling to bo
longer satisfied with the slow monthly issuos ol'a pa
per professedly dovotod to their interests, or to trust
alone to the'irresponsible extracts in a "farmers
column," so popular just now in papers chiofiy devo
ted to business, politics, or literature; and they look
for the united support of all the intelligent farmers
of this conntry in their continued oflort to furnish a
woekly paper of a high and reliable character, which
shall he progressive, and at the aainotimo cautious
and conservative in all its teachings.
Essentially an Agricultural Paper.
Tho Agriculturist will not depart from its legiti
mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumboring up
its pagos, with the silly, fictitious literature, and
light, miscellaneous matter of the day; it has a high
er aim; and a small part only of its space will l.o
devoted to matters not immediately pertaining to tho
groat business of Agriculture. The household aa
well as tho out-door work of the farm will receive a
duo share of attention. The humbugs and nostrums
afloat in tho community will be 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 thoao who will make it a standard
work, which shall communicate to ita readers only
that which is safe and reliable.
An Independent Journal.
The American Agriculturist stands upon ita own
merits; and the truthfulness, teal, and ability,
which it brings to the support of the interests of tho
farmer. It is untrammeied by any collateral busi
ness connections whatever; nor ia it the organ of any
clique, or tho puffing machine of any man or thing.
Thoroughly independent in all poinia, its ample pa
ges are studiously given alone to the support and im
provement of the great agricultural class
