the general character of the incident, and adventures
that the young travellers meet with, is m moat atrict

I KNQLIBH LITSXATUBX OF THE 18TH CHHTBBY
EC. A J. BIDDLE, No. ? South Fifth atreet,
? Philadelphia, bar* recently published a new
aUreotype edition of
English. Literature of the Nineteenth Century.
On the plan of the author's 'Compendium of Engliah
Literature," and aupplementary to it Deaigned for
collegea and advanced classes in schools as wel aa
for private reading. By Charlea IX Cleveland.
The " Compendium of Engliah Literature, by Prof
Cleveland, comprises biographical sketches ??d ae
lections from the writings of English authors, from
the fourteenth to the eighteenth centunr, ehronologi
callv arranired ; together with copious Notes, explan
atory, illustrative, Ac. The volume now advertised,
which is arranged on tho same plan as the Com
pendium," comprises in its list of authors mA as
flourished in the eighteenth century, but dud In the
| present; together with those ?tricUy of the nine
teenth century, whether living or dead.
The present edition of " English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century " contains biographical sketches
and selections from the writings of one hundred and
i six authors, the names of twenty-seven of whom did
not appear in the table of contents of the former edi
tion ; together with many improvements throughout
' ^Prof. C.'a two volumes of English Literature are
now extensively nsed as text-books in colleges, acad
emies. and the higher class of scminarfes throughout
the United States. The following opinions relative
to "English Literature of the Nineteenth Century,
are selected from a largo number equally commenda
tory of the work:
From Prof. ChuHnrr* A. Goodrich, D. D., of Yalt
'? I consider Prof. Cleveland's ' English Literature
or the Nineteenth Century ' an appropriate sequel to
i his ' Compendium.' Tho author ba? shown the same
I just and delicate appreciation of literary excollence
in this as in the former volume; and, as it readies
I down to our limes, it will be still more interesting to
a large portion of the public, and especially to the
young. Few persons can understand what an amount
I of reading, thought, nice discrimination, and labori
ous col densation of knowledge, are r*|uisite to the
production of such a work , and just in uro|wrtion as
men toil more extensively in this field, will be the
intimate they will put upon thia result of the author *
From Gnorgr B. Kmrrton, zw. of Boston.
"I have examined yonr ' Rngllsh Literature of the
Nineteenth Century," and I like it exceedingly It
In extremely well Mid fairly done. The biographical
notice* are just and discriminating ; and, while they
are long enough to gratify the curiosity we have to
know something of an author, they are so spirited a*
to awaken a desire to know more. The selections
are admirable. I have adopted the work an a text
book for my first class, every individual of which i*
now preparing, under it* guidance, to give a faller
account of the writing* ofjiome one cboson author."
From Rn>. B. P. Aydrktt, D- D.,af Cincinnati.
" I have examined with much care, and still great
er pleasure, and, I trust, not a little profit, yonr
? Rnglish Literature of the Nineteenth Century.' ?
? Ft is, I believe, the rirhrtt co/Urtwn of print in
otir language. There ia nothing in it I would omit,
and yet it ia not too largi for jxtjtular one. Consid
ering the very britf limits to which yon wore obliged
to confine Yourself, I am surprised at the fullness and
richness of your biographical details. Your most
difficult and del if ate task, howovor, was the eriti?al
judgment to be passed upia each author; and bore
1 think you have been very happy?discriminating
and just, and yat kind. * * Rnt I would feel that
whatever I have said about the volume, however
true, ought to be considered ts of little worth, eould
I not add?as I cheerfully do?a stro ig testimony to
its high moral tone and eminently Christian spirit.
The general reader cannot fail to bo interested, the
student profited, the scholar delighted, and the man
of piety pleased, with your ' English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century.' "

It cannot fail to achiove for Mrs. Collins an unviable
popularity. She takes us with her to the drunkard's

and the suffering, that are there. She paints, with
a woman's dulicato skill, thu meok patience, tho
long-abused, but unchanging lovo of the drunkard's
wife, touches the deepest chords of the heart, and
makes them vibrate with pity and with indignation.
