EC. A J. BfDDLE, No. fl South Filth (treat,

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
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
" 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
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.' "

"HOLLO ON THE ATLANTIC," ?
BEAUTIFULLY illustrated with original designs.
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." Published by

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

work, and to this end The Prohibitionist is estab

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,

THK GREAT AMERICAN TBMPBKAHCK TALK.
MB8. BEN DABBY;
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
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.
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.?
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*
* * * 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.? Preebyterian Herald
Graphic truthful, chaste, aod deeply affecting, the
story winds Itself into our feolings, and we bocome
absorBod in the plot, as if we behold before oar own
eyee the realities of the author s delineations ? Dai

Such a Paper is demanded by the Farming
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. Ii is
the aim of the publishers to keap this pa|>er under
1 tbe guidance of those who will make it a standard
work, which shall communicate to iU roadi rs only
that which is safe and reliable.
