OLIVIUNM ENGLISH L1THHATUBS OP THE IBM CEHTUBY. New Edition. EC. A J. BfDDLE, No. fl South Filth (treat, ? Philadelphia, have recently publiahed a now, stereotype edition of Englttk Literature of the Nineteenth Century, On the plan of the autbor'a ''Compendium of English Literature," and aupplementary to it Designed for oolleges and advanced classes in sohoola as wal as forprtvate reading. By Charles D. Cleveland. ? The " Compendium of English Literature." by Prof. Cleveland, comprises biographical sketches and se lections from the writings of English authors, from the fourteenth to the eighteenth century, chronologi cally arranged ; together with copious Notes, explan atory, illustrative, Ac. The volume bow 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, bat died in the present; together with those strictly of the nine teenth century, whether living or dead. The present edition of "English Literature of the Nineteenth Century " contains biographioal sketches and seloctions from tho writings of one hundred and six authors, the names of twenty-seven of whom did not appear in the table of contents of the former edi tiou ; together with many improvements throughout the volume. Prof. C.'s two volumes of Enrlish Literature are now extensively used as text-books iu colleges, acad emies, and the higher class of seminaries, throughout the United States. The following opinion* relative to "English Literature of the Nineteenth Century," are selected from a large number equally commenda tory of tho work: From Prof. Chauncey A. Goodrich, D. D., of Yah College. " I consider Prof. Cleveland's ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century ' an appropriate sequel to his ' Compendium.' The author nai shown the same just and delicate appreciation of literary excellence in this, as in the 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 oan understand what an amount of reading, thought, nice discrimination, and labori ous cor 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. Ewer ton, 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 biographioal notices are just and discrimiutfing; and, while they are long enough to gratify the curiosity we have to know something of an author, they are so spirited as to awaken a desiro to know more. The selections are admirablo. I have adopted the work as a tsxt book for my first claas, every individual of which is now preparing, undor its guidance, to give a fuller account of the writings of aome one chosen author." From Rev. B. P. Aydelottf D. D., of Cincinnati. " I have examined with much care, and still great er pleasure, and, I trust, not a little profit, your ' English Literaturo of the Nineteenth Century. ? * It is, I believe, the richest collection of gems 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 wbioh you were obliged to confine youraelf, I am surprised at the fullness and riohness of your biographical details. Your most dlffloult and delicate task, however, was the critioal judgment to be passed upen each author; and here I think you have been very happy?discriminating and jost, and yet kind. * * But I would feel that whatever I have said about the volume, however true, ought to be considered ss of little worth, could I not add?as I cheerfully do?a strong testimony to itt high moral tone and eminently Christian spirit. The general reader cannot fail to be interested, the student profited, the scholar delighted, and the man of piety pleased, with your ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century.'

By Jacob Abbott. " Hollo on the Atlantic " is the first book of a se ries to be published under the general title of Hollo's Tour 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 oontain, not only in respect to the countries visited, and to the customs, uaagea, and modes of life that are doscribed, but also in regard to the general character of the incidents and adventures that the young travellers meet with, is in most strict accordance with fact. The main design ot the narra tive is thus the communication of useful knowledge; and everything which they contain, except what is Strictiv personal, in rotation to the actors in the story, may be depended upon as exactly and scrupulously true."

" If any Statu deuuiH the retail and Interna) traffic in ardent spirits injurious to its oitiiena, and calcu lated to produce idlenoaa, rice, or debauohory, I Me nothing in the Constitution of the United States to prevent it from regulating or restraining the traffic, or from prohibiting it altogether, if it thinks proper." Chief Justice Taiuy. ON or before the 1st of January, 1854, the Execu tive Committee oi the Mow York State Temper ranoe Society will issue the first number of a Month ly Temperance Journal, under the title of " Tub Pao HI BITIONIST." Its Size.?It will bo printed on a double medium sheet, making eight quarto pages, of four oolumns to a page; and, excluding advertisements, each number will contain an amount of reading matter equal at least to that furnished by our larger-siied daily jour nals, or to that of an ordinary duodecimo volume ot 150 pages. Its Object.?To advocate the Cause of Temper anoe generally, and especially the Legislative Prohibi tion of the Traffic in Intoxicating Beverages, to pro paro the minds of the masses for such Prohibition, by showing its expediency and Necessity, and to secure, by all the influence it may legitimately exert, the vigorous enforcement of Prohibitory Laws when ob tained. Its Field.?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 trust, it will be National in its circulation and influence. Such is our aim and expectation. We desire to soo the Principle of Prohibition established in State after State, till it beoomes the recognised poliey of the Na tion. It is our ambition to bear a part in this great work, and to this end The Prohibitionist is estab lished, not as the organ ot a soeiety merely, but of a Cheat Reformatory Movement. Its Necessity.?The existing Temperance Jour- ; nals have little, if any, circulation outside of the Tem perance Ranks. Their prioe almost necossarily re stricts them to the friends of the cause. The Pro hibitionist is designed for circulation (instead of' tracts) among the indifferent and the hostile. For this purpose it is put at a prioe so low as to enable the friends of Tomperance in every school distriot, by combined action and at an inoonsiderable expense, to place a copy in each family that will consent to ro ceive it. Its Prici.?One copy for one year - - $0 50 Three, to one address, one year I 00 Seven do. do. - - 2 00 And for each additional four oopies, $1.00 will be added, for any quantity less than fifty copies. For fifty copies to one address - ? $11 00 For 100 do. do. - - - 10 00 No subscription reeeived for less than one year, and in every case the order must be accompanied by tho money. The paper will be under the general direotion 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 temperanoe 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 be addressed to 0. Scovill, Pub lishing Agent, Albany. Communications for the paper, or in relation to the interests of the eause generally, should bo directed to Wm. H. Burleigh, Corresponding Secretary.

Wyckoff, William Richardaoa, Edgar B. Day, Hermon Camp, B. P. Staats, Oliver Scovill. [E?- The Committee request all editors in the Uni ted States to give the above one insertion in their columns. To all who eomply with this request, we wid send the Prohibitionist lor one year, wuhoict an exohange, unless they choose to add to ourobligation by sending their papers also, which would, of course, be most thankfully received.

MB8. BEN DABBY; OE, THE WEAL AND WOE OP 80CIAL LIFE. One Volume l2mo, $1. THE objoet of this tale is to exhibit in different phases, in high life and low life, tbe accursed effects of intemperate drinking, the bane of social life, the curse of civilised man. The characters are well and sharply drawn, and the various scenes are deecribod with much spirit and graphic effect. * Wo are disposed to regard the book as the best" of its kind that has yet appeared.?Bomoh Traveller. It is not often that we read a story of any kind, but we have broken our practioe, and havo read this book not only with pleasure, but with a gratification which bat very few novels have ever afforded us. It is a quiet and simple, but still striking and uffective picture of American social life.?Chieago Tribune. Written with marked ability.?Zatusville Courier. A thrilling pioture of the effects of that infernal bane of social life, Intemperance ? Richmond Pal ladtum. The style is attractive and fascinating; there is a freshness and originality about it, that is very pleas ing. * * ? One of its ohief merits is the excel lence of its conversations.?Enquirer. Ha* so many thrilling passages and well-drawn characters, that you read it with absorbed attention. It eannot fail to aohieve for Mrs. Collins an enviable popularity. She takes us with her to the drunkard's home, and tells of the hunger and the tear, the toil and the suffering, that are there. She paints, with a woman s delicate skill, the meek patienoe, 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 ner literary productions, this work, we pre dict, will increase tnat number ten fold, and five her a reputation worthy of her high talents.? Albany Tnbvne. The style is easy, natural, beautiful, chaste, and at times very eloquent. We would commend it ee pecially to young ladies, that they may see to v.hat dangers they are exposed, in forming alliances with thefaahionable in high life.?Ohio Organ. A deeply interesting and powerful work- It vivid ly portrays some of the terrific exploiu of strong drink in both high and low life. Nor are such scenes as it depicts either imaginary or few. Let this book circulate. It hae a beneficent aim, and is the vehicle of admirably old and most salulary lessons.?Pre* byterian. * * * Has sketched it in its daintiest form of fascination, as well as in its grim and dismal aspect of open degradation. Barely has a woman ventured to hold the torch to such a dark recess of human woe.? Datly Tims*. We know of no passage, anywhere, more uniquely beautiful, more intensely absorbing, more overpow ering in the pathetic, than the thirty-fourth chapter. It is indeed a gem. We doubt whether the oelebra ted chapter devoted to the death of Eva, in Uncle Tom s Cabin, is superior. * * * It is certainly the most powerftal temporance tale that we have ever perused.?Journal and Meeeenger. Beautifully written * * * A work of great strength and power.?Qoeftl Herald. * ? * The incidents dramatic, and tbe inter est intense to the end.? Ohio Stateman. Wields an easy pen, and sketches men and man ners to the life.?

Correct and valuable Market Heparin. Tbo Markets will we carefully reported, giving the actual transactions which tako place from week to week, in Grain, Provisions, Cattle, Ac., thus keep ing our readers constantly and reliably advised as to their interests. During tho past year, the knowledge obtained from those Market Reports alone has saved our readers thousands of dollars, by informing tbi-m of the best time to sell or purchase. Such a Paper is demanded by the Farming Community. The publishers confidently believe that the agri culturists of this country are becoming too much awake to tho demands of their own calling to bo longer satisfied with the slow monthly issues of a pa per professedly devotod to their interests, or to trust alone to the irresponsible extraots in a"farmer's column," so popular just now in papers ohiofiy devo ted to business, politics, or literature; and they look for the united support of all the intelligent farun rs of this country in their continued effort lo furnish a weekly papor of a high and reliable character, which shall be progressive, and at the same time cautious and conservative in ail its teachings. Essentially an Agricultural Paper. Tho Agrtmlturist will not depart fh>m its legiti mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumbering up its page*, with the silly, fictitious literature, and light, miscellaneous matter oi tbe day ; it has a high er aim; and a small part only of its space will lis devoted to matters not immediately pertaining to the great business of Agriculture. The household as well as ths out-door work of the farm will rcc? i?e a due share of attention The humbugs and nostrums afloat in the community will be triod by reliable sci entific rules, and their worthlessnees exposi-d.
