The volume now advertised, which is arranged on the same plan an the " Com pendinni," comprises in its list of authora such ?s flourished in the eighteenth century, but Hint in tbe present; together with those strictly of the nine teenth century, whether living or doad.

'? I consider Prof. Cleveland'a ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century ' an appropriate sequel to hia * Compendium.' The author ha? shown 0>o aam* just and delicate appreciation of literary excellence in this, as in the former volume; and, as it reaches down to our times, it wUl be still more interesting to a large portion of the public, and especially to the young, Few persons can understand what an amount of reading, thought, nice discrimination, and labori ous cot densation of knowledge, are requisite to tbe production of such a work ; and just in proportion as men toil more extensively in this field, will be the estimate they will pot upon this result of tbe author a labors." < From Gmrgt It- Rmrrson, Ksy . of lioMnti.

Dec. H 8t ruBLuuiaa' ANjioowCuuirarr! ELEVENTH VOLUME OF THE AMERICAN-AGRICULTURIST, THK LKADtNG Weekly Agricultural Paper of Ike Country. THE AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST, a weekly Periodical of sixteen large quarto pages, making an anuuul volume of 832 pages of nearly doublo the si*e of those in the first ten volumes of "tho Agricul turist. * It is boautifully priutod with type east expressly tor it, and on the best of olear whito paper, with wide margin, so that tho numbers can bo etwily stitched or bound togother. A copious Index is weekly added, which will be rully amplified at tho end of the year, for the bound work. Comprehensive in its Character, t Each volumo will contain all matter worth record ing, which transpires oithor at houiu or abroa<l, and which can serve to instruct or interest tho Farmer, the Pljintor, the Fruit-Grower, the Gardener and the Stock Brooder; thus making it the moat com pleto and nsoful Agricultural Publication of tho day. Correct and valuable Market Reports. The Markets will be carofully 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, tho knowledge obtamod from these Market Roports alone has saved ourrmderj thousands of dollars, by informing them of the best time to sell or purchase. Such a Paper is demanded by the Farming Community. The publishers confidently beliovo that the 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 professedly devoted to their interests, or to trust alone to the irresponsible extracts in a "farmer's column," so popular;ust now in papers ohiofly devo ted to business, politics, or literature; and they look for the united support of all the intelligent farmers of this oountry in their continued effort to furnish a weekly paper of a high and reliable charaotor, 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 its legiti mate sphoro to catch jmpuhtr favor by lumbering up its pages, with the silly, fictitious literature, and.* light, miscellaneous matter of tho day; it has a high er aim; and a small part only of its spaco will be devotod to matters not immodiately pertaiuing to the great business of Agriculture. The household us 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 bo tried by reliable sci entific rales, and their worthlessness exposed. It is the aim of the publishers to keop this patter under the guidance of those who will make it a standard work, which shall communicate to its readers only that which is safe and reliable. An bulependent Journal. The American Agriculturist stands upon its own merits; and the truthfulness, xeal, and ability, whioh it brings to the support of the interests of the' farmer. It is untraiumeled by any collateral busi ness connections whatever: nor is it the organ of any clique, or the puffing machine of any man or thing. Thoroughly ind?}>endcnt in all points, its ample pa ges are studiously given alone to the support and im provement of the great agricultural class. ' Editorial Department. The American Agrtmhuti*t is under the editorial supervision of Mr. A. B. Allen, its principal editor for the past ten years, and Mr. Orange Judd, A.
