" I consider Prof. Cleveland's * English Literature

his Compendium.' The author ha< shown the same
just and delicate appreciation of literary

THE object of this tale ia to exhibit in different
phases, in high life and low life, tbo accursed
ott'octs of intemperate drinking, the bane of social
life, the curse of civilised man. The characters are
woll and sbarply drawn, and the various scenes are
described with much spirit and grapbio effect. * *
* Wo are disposed to regard the book as the best
of its kind that has yet appeared.?Boston Traveller.
It is not often that we read a story of any kind,
but we have broken our practice, and huvo read this
book, not only with pleasure, but with a gratification
whioh but very few novojs have ever afforded us. It
is a quiet and simple, but still striking and effective
picture of American social lifo.? Chicago Tribune.
Written with markod ability.?Zaitrsville Courier.
A thrilling picture of tho offocts of that infernal
bano of social lifo, intomperanoo.?Hi eh mo ml Pal
The style is attractive and fascinating; there is a
freshness and originality about it, that is very pleas
ing. * * * One of its ohiof merits is the excel
lence of its conversations.?Eiu/uirer.
Has so many thrilling passages and'well-drawn
characters, that you read it with absorbed attention.
It cannot fail to achiovo for Mrs. Collins an enviable
popularity. She takos us with her to the drunkard's
home, and tolls of the hunger and the fear, the toil
and the suffering, that are there*. She paints, with
a woman's delicate skill, the moek patience, the
long-abused, but unohanging love of tho drunkard's
wife, louchos the deepest chorda 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 that number ten-fold, and give
her a reputation worthy of her high talents.?N&io
Albany Tribune.
The stylQ is easy, natural, beautiful, chaste, and
at times very eloquent. We would commend it es
pecially to young .ladies, that they may see to what
dangers they are exposod, in forming alliances with
the fashionable in high life.?Ohio Organ. '
A deeply interesting and powerful work. It vivid
ly portrays some of tho terrific exploits of strong
drink in both high and low lifo. Nor are such scenes
as it depicts either imaginary or few. Let this book
circulatc. It has a beneficent aim, and is the vehicle
of admirably old and most salutary lessons.?Pres
* * * Has sketched it in its daintiest form of
fascination, as woll as in its grim and dismal aspect
of open degradation. Rarely has a woman ventured
to hold the torch to suck a dark recess of human
woe.?Daily Time*.
We know, of no passage, anywhere, more uniquely
boautiful. more intensely absorbing, more overpow
ering in the pathetic, than the thirty-fourth chapter.
It is indoed a gem. We doubt whether the celebra
ted chapter devoted to the death of Eva, in Uncle
Tom's Cabin, is superior. * * * It is certainly
the most powerful temperance tale that we have ever
perused ?Journal and Messenger.
Beautifully written. * * * A work of great
strength and power.?Gospel Herald.

Weekly Agricultural Paper of the Country.
T1IE AMERICAN agriculturist, a weekly
Periodical of sixteen large quarto pages, making
an anuual volume of 832 pages of nearly double tbe
siso of those in the first ton volumos of the Agricul
It is beautifully printed with type cast expressly
for it, and on the best of clear whito papor, with wide
margin, so that the numbors can bo eusily stitched
or bound together. ..
A copious Index is weekly added, which will l>e
fully amplified at the end of tbe year, for the bound
Comprehensive in its Character,
Each volume will contain all matter worth record
ing, which transpires cither at homo or abroad, and
which can serve to instruct or interest the Farmer,
the Planter, th? Fruit-Urower, tho Gardener, and
the Stock-Breeder; thus making it the most com
plete and useful Agricultural Publication of the day.
? Correct and valuable Market Reports.
The Markets will be carefully reported, giving the
actual transactions whioh take place froui week to
week, in Grain, Provisions, Cattle, Ac.; thus koep
ing our readers constantly and reliably advised as to
their interests. During the past year, the knowledge
obtained from these Market Reports alone has ha veil
our readers thousands of dollars, by informing them
of the best time to sell or purchase.
Such a Paper is demanded Ity the Farming
The publishers confidently believe that (he agri
culturists of this country are becoming too much
awake to the demands of their own calling to be
longer satisfied with the slow monthly issues of a pa
per profeesodly devoted to their interests, or to trust
alone to the irresponsible extracts in a " fanner's
column," so popular justjiow in papers cbietiy devo
ted to business, politics, or literature; and thoy look
for the united support of all the intelligent fanners
of this oountry in their coutinued 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 Agriculturist will not depart from Hs legiti
mate sphore to catch popular favor by lumbering up
its pages, with the silly, fictitious litorature, and
light, miscellaneous matter of the day; it has a high*
er aim; and a small part ohly of its space will be
devoted to matters not immediately pertaining to the
great business of Agriculture. The household as
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 be triea by roliable sci
entific rales, and their worthlessness exposed. It is
the aim of the publishers to keep this |taper under
the guidanoe of thoAe who will make it a standard
work, whioh shall communicate to its reuders only
that which is safe and reliable.
An hulependent Journal.
The. A mm can Agriculturist stands upon its own
merits; and the truthfulness, teal, and ability,
which it brings to the support of the interests of tbe
farmer. It is untrammeled by any collateral busi
ness conneotiens whatever; nor is it the organ of any
cHque, or the unfllnK machine of any man or thing
Thoroughly independent in all points, its ample pa
gee are studiously given alone to the support and im
provement of the great agricultural class.
Editorial Department.
The American Agriculturist is under the editorial
supervision of Mr. A. B. Allen, its principal editor
for the past ten years, and Mr. Orange Judd, A. M ,
a thoroughly practical farmer and agricfiltural
chemist. .

other departments of practical agriculture, and, in
addition to these, a number ol other eminent agri
cultural writers.
All tbe editors are men practically experienced in
their profession, each of whom can handle the Plow
as well as the Pen.
