formation which they contain, not only in rospoct 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 of the narrn
tive is thus the communication of useful knowledge;
and everything which they contain, except what is
strictly persoual, in rolatiou to tho acton in tho story,
may be depended upon as exactly and scrupulously

ENGLISH LITERATURE OF THE 10TH CENTURY
New Edition.
E> C. A J. BIDDLE. No. ? South Fifth street,
j. Philadelphia, have recently published a new,
stereotype edition of
English Literature of the Nineteenth Century,
On the plan of the author's ''Compendium of English
Literature," and supplementary to it. Designed for
colleges and advanced classes in schools as wel as
for private reading. By Charlos 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, ?bronologt
callv arranged . together with copious Notes, explan
atory. illustrative. Ac. 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.
The prenrnt edition of *' English Literature or the
Nineteenth Century" contain* biographical sketches
and nrlMtioim from lh? writing* 01 on* hundred and
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
the volume.
Prof. C.'a two volumes of Entlisb Literature are
now extensively used as taxt-books in colleges, acad
emies. and tbe higher class of seminaries, throughout
tbe United States. The following opinions relative
to "English Literature of tba Nineteenth Century,"
are selected from a large nuinlwtr usually commenda
tory of tbe work :
From Prof. ChnHvrn, A Guodnrh, II D., of Y<U'
Ce/Ugt.
'? 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.
" I have examined yonr ' English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century, and I like it exceedingly It
|a extremely well aod fairly done. The biographical
notice* are Jflst and discriminating ; and. whilo they
are long enough to gratify tbe curiosity we have to
know something of an author, they are so spirited as
to awaken a desire to know more. The selections
are admirable. I have adopted tbe work as a text
nook for my ?rat on**. evfry individual of which is
now preparing, under its guidance, to give a fuller
account of the writing* of some one chosen author
From Rev n P. ApMott, /> D., of Cinrinmat.
" I have examined with much care, and still great
er pleasure, snd, I trust, not a litUe profit, your
? English Literature of the Nineteenth Century/ *
? Tt is, I believe, the rtrUr*I cnlUetum nf grmt in
OPT bngnogt. There ia nothing in it I would omit,
and yet It ia not too large for jmpninr use. Conoid
erir.e tbe very brief limits to whieh you were obliged
to confine yourself, I am surprised at tbe fullneas and
richness of your MograpMeeJ details. Your most
difficult and delicate task, however, was the critical
judgment to be passed up> n each aathor; and here
I think you have been very hanpy?discriminating
and j ost, and yet kind. * * But I would feel that
whatever I have said about tbe volume, however
true, ought to be considered sa of little worth, could
I n"t add ?as I ebeerfull v do?a stro -g testimony to
its high moral tone and eminently Christian spirit
Tbe general reader cannot fail to be interested, the
student profited, the scholar delighted, and tbe man
of piety pleased, with your ' English Literature of tbe
Nineteenth Century.'

tho Principle of Prohibition established in State utter

this purpose it is put at a price so low as to enable

THE NIW YORK MUSICAL REVIEW
AND
CHORiL ADVOCATE
IS tho cheapest and best Musical Paper in the
world. This Journal, which has heretofore boen
published monthly, commences its fifth yoar in w
uary next, find thenceforward it will bo published
every two woeks?on every othor Thursday; thereby
giving more than twice as much matter, without any
increaso in prioe. Each numbor contains sixteen
quarto pages, four of which are new music, consist
ing of glees, hymn tunes, chants, anthams, dedication
and holyday pieoes, and, in short, every variety of
music adapted to purposes of religious worship, to
public occasions, and to the home cirele; all of which
will bo of a practical character, and such as can bo
sung by persons of ordinary musical attainments. In
the editorial department of the Review are engaged
(in addition to Mr Cady, the former oditor) gentl*
men of the highest talent and ripest musieal f*P*ri
once, among whom are George F. Root, William B.
Bradhury, Thomas Hastings, and Lowell Masou;
and its circle of eorresjsmdence, home and foreign,
is complete. Tho Review will also be a regular mo
diuin for the announcement of new musical publica
tions by all the leading publishing bouses in the
Union. The subscription list of this papor is now
larger than that of any similar journal in the world,
ana the new arrangements, rendoring it the cheapest
as well as (it is hoped) the most valuable musical
paper ever published, must largely increase its al
ready unparalleled circulation.
Trrmt. ? Ono dollar per annum, or six copies for
five dollars, always in advance.
rvy- The music alone in a volume would cost over
five dollars in tho usual form Beside this, tnero will
bo an immense amount of musical nows, essays, crit- t
icistn, instruction, Ac., all for only one dollar! Ev
ery one feeling a particle of interest in the causc ol
music will surely subscribe.

Although these works are distinguished by the pe

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. M..

other departments of practical agriculture, and, in
addition to these, a number of other eminent agri
cultural writers.

their profession, each of whom can handle tho Flow
as well as the Pen.
