The above work is a delineation of the scenes unc
incidents connected with the imprisonment, in 1861
of Manuel Pereira, steward of the British brig Jan
son, in the jail of Charleston, S. C.
The following notice of this work is copied from thi
National Era of February 17;
"The above is the title of a work now in press
founded upon that infamous statute of South Carolina,
by which ner citizens claim a right to imprison colored
srimir/i, of all nations, and even those oast upon theli
shores in distress. We have perused the book in ad
vanoe of its publication, and find that it gives a life
like picture of Pereira, the veiwel in which he sailed
the storms she encountered, and her wreoked condition
when brought into the port of Charleston, S. C.; to
gether with the imprisonment of Pereira, several sea
men belonging to the New England States, and two
F ^noh seamen; the prison regiuiun, character of th?
( h urleston police, and the mendacity of certain offi
cios, who make the law a medium of peculation. Tht
work is replete with incidents of Southern life and
character, pointing Southerners to the things that call
for correction at their own hands, with a foroe thai
cannot be mistaken. The work is written by one who
has taken a prominent part in the affairs of the Sonth.
and cannot tail to interest alike the general reader,
commercial man, and philanthropist."

" Hollo on the Atlautic " is the first book of a se
ries to be published under the general title of Rollo's
Tour in Europe.
Extract from the Preface :
"The books arc intended to be books of instruc
tion, rather than of mere amusement; and, in peru
sing them, tho roader may feel assured that all the in
formation which they contain, not only in rospoct to
tho countries visited, and to the customs, usagos. and
modes of life that aro described, 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 of the narra
tive is thus the communication of useful knowledge;
and everything which they contain, except what Is
strictly personal, in relation to the actors in the storv,
may be depended upon as exactly and scrupulously
true." Published by

New Edition.
EC. A J. BIUDLE, No. A Sonth Fifth street,
? 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 we I as
forprivate reading. By Charles D. Cleveland.
"Hie "Compendium of English Literature,"by Prof.
Cleveland, composes 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 now advertised,
which is arrangod on tho same plan as the " Coin
pendintn," comprises in its list of authors such as
flourished in the eighteenth century, but died in the
present; together with those strictly of the nine
teenth century, whethor 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
six authors, tho 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.'s two volumes of English Literature are
now extensively used si text-books in colleges, acad
emies, and the higher class of seminaries, throughout
the United States. The following opinions relative
to "English Literature of the Nineteenth Century,"
are selected from a large number equally commemla
tory of the work:
From Prof. Chaunccy A. Goodrich, D. D., of YaU
" I consider Prof. Cleveland's' ' English Literature
of the Nineteenth Century ' an appropriate sequel to
his ' Compendium.' The author na* shown the same
just and delicate appreciation of literary excellence
in this, as in tho former volume; and, as it reaohes
down to oar times, it will be still more interesting t?
a large portion of the public, and especially to tbe
young. Few persons can understand What an amount
of reading, thought, nico discrimination, and labori
ous cot densation of knowledge. are r*|uisitfl to the
prodnction of snch a work ; and just in proportion a*
men toil more extensively In this field, will he the
estimate they witl put npon this result of theanthor'i
From Grmrgt B. Emcrtwn, Esq., of lloHon.
" I have examined your ' English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century,' and I like it exceedingly It
Is extremely well and fairly done. The biographical
notices are just and discriminating , and, while they
are long eoough to gratify the 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 the work as a text
nook for mv first e'ass, every individual of which is
now preparing, under its guidance, to give a fuller
account of the writings of some one chosen author."
Prom Ret'. H. P. Aydcloti, 1). D.,of Cincinnati.
" I have examined with much care, and still grast
er pleasure,.and, I trust, not a little profit, your
' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century.' *
? Ft is, I believe, the richest roil return of frm* in
nnr /angniter. There is nothing in it I would omit,
and yet it is not too large for fojmlar nse. Consid
ering the very brief limit* to which you wero obliged
to confine yourself. I am surprised at thefnlbiets and
richness or yonr biographical details. Yonr most
difficult and delicate task, however, was the eritical
judgment to be passed upc n each anthor; and hore
I think you have been very happy?discriminating
and just, and yet kind * * But I would feel that
whatever I have said about the volume, however
true, ought to he considered *? of little worth, eonld
I not add?as I eheerfnllv do?a stro >g testimony to
its high moral tone and eminently Christian spirit.
The general reader cannot fall to be intercsted, the
student profited, the scholar delighted, and the man
of piet^pleased, with your ' English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century.'*'

world. This Journal, which has heretofore been
published monthly, commences its fifUi year ini Ja?
uary next, and thenceforward it will be published
every two weeks?on every other Thursday; thereby

increase id prioe. Each number contains sixteen
quarto pages, four of which are new music, eons st
iag of glees, hymn tunes,ohants, anthems, dedioatiotf
and holyday pieces, and, in short, every variety of
music adapted to purposes of religious worship, to
public occasions, and to the home circle; all of which
will be of a practical character, and such as can be
mi ng by persons of ordinary musical attainment*. In
the editorial department of the Review are engaged
(in addition to Mr Cady, the former editor) gentle
men of the highest talent and ripest musical experi-.
enoe, among whom are George F. Hoot, William B.
Brad burr ^Thomas Hastings, and Lowell Mason;
and its circle of correspondence, home and foreign,
is complete. The Review will also be a regular me
dium for the announcement of new musical publica
tions by all the leading publishing houses in the
Union. The subscription list of this paper is now
larger than of any similar journal in the world,
ana the new arrangements, rendering it the cheapest
as well aa (it is hoped) the most valuable musical
paper ever published, must largely increase ita al
ready unparalleled circulation. ?

wife, touches tho doei>est chords of tho heart, and
makes them vibrate with pity and with indignation.

Such a Paper is demanded l>y the Farming
Tho publishers confidently believe that the agri
culturists, of this country are Incoming too much
awako to^ tho demands of their own calling to lit
longer satisfied with tho slow monthly issues of a pa
per profossodly devqtud to their interest*, or to trust
alono to the irresponsible extracts in a " farmer's
column," so popular just now in papers chiefly devo
ted to business, politics, or literature; and they look
for the united support of all the intelligent fanners
of this country in their continued effort to furnish a
weeklv paper of a high and reliable character, which
shall he progressive, and at the saiuo lime cautious"
and conservative in all its teachings.
Essentially an Agricultural Paper. ,
The Agriculturist will not depart from its legiti
mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumbering up
its pages, with the silly, fictitious literature, and
light, miscellaneous matter of the day; it has a high
er aim; and a small part only of its space will bo
devoted to matters not immediately pertaining to tho
great business of Agriculture. The household a?
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 rules, and their worthlessnoss exposed. It ia
the aim of the publishers to keep this paper under
the guidance of thoso who will make it a standard
work, which shall communicate to its readers only
that which is safe and reliable.
An Independent Journal.
The American Agriculturist stands upon its own
merits; and the truthfulness, seal, and ability,
which it bringi to the support of the interests of tho'
farmer. It is untrammeled by any collateral busi
nes? connections whatever: nor ia it the organ of any
clique, or the puffing machine of any man or thing.
Thoroughly independent 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 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.,
