The following notice of this work ia copied from th?
NuiMual H>u of February 17:
"The above ia the title of a work now in press
founded upon that infamous statute of Koulh Caroliua
by which her oitiaens claim a right to imprison mlurn,
smhuh, of nil nations, and even those cast upon theii
shores in distress We have perused the book in ad
vaiiue of it* publication, and find that it gives a life
like pioturu ot Pereira, the vessel in which he sailed
1 he storms she encountered, and her wrecked condition
when brought into the port of Charleston, 8. C.; to
guthcr with the imprisonment of Pereira, several sea
men belonging to the Now England States, and twi
Flinch seamen; the prison regiiuen, character of thr
(ftirleston police, and the mendacity of certain offi
oiula, who make the law a medium of peculation. Th?
work is replete with incidents of Southern life and
oharacier, fainting Southerners to the things that call
for correction at their own hands, with a force thai
cannot be mistaken. The work is written by one whr
has taken a prominent part in the aQ'uiraof the South
and cannot lail to interest alike the general reader
ooiniuercial man, and philanthropist."

Extract from the Preface :
"The books are intended to be books of instruc
tion, rather than of mere amusement; and, in peru
sing them, the reader may feel assured that all the in
formation which they contain, not only in respect to
the ooutitries visited, and to the customs, usages, and
modes ot lilo that are 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. Tho 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 actora in the atory,
may be depended upon as exactly and acrupulouslv
true." Published by

F ?' * ?f?DLE, No. fl South Fifth street,

stereotype edition of
English Literature of the Nineteenth Century,
On the plan of the author's " Compendium of English
Literature. ' and aiipplemcntary to it. Designed for
colleges and advanced classes in schools as we! as
for private reading. By Charles D. Cleveland.
The ' Compendium of English Literature," by Prof.
Cleveland, comprises biographical sketches and so
lections from the writings of English authors, from
the fourteenth to the eighteenth century, chronologi
cally arranged; together with copious Note*, explan
atory. illustrative, Ac. The volume now advertised,
which is arranged on the same plan as the "Com
pendium," comprises in ita list of authors such a*
nourished in the eighteenth century, bat dtfd in the
present; together with those strictly of Uie nine
teenI h century, whether living or dead.
The present edition of ' English Literature of the
Nineteenth Century " contains biographical sketches
and selections Cram the writings of one hundred and
six authora, the narno of twenty-seven of whom did
?"t ap|iear in the tnhle of contents (if (he former edi
tion ; together with many improvements throughout
the Volume.
Prof C.'s two volumes of Enflish Literature art
now extensively used as toxt-books In colleges, acad
emies. and the higher class of seminaries, throughout
tlio I 'uited States. The following opinions relative
to " English Literature of the Nineteenth Contury,"
are selected from a large number equally commends
lory of the work:
From Prof. C/uiunrrt, A. Gootlrirh, D. />., of l'a/r
" I consider Prof. Cleveland's 'English Literature
of the Nineteenth Century ' an appropriate sequel to
his Compendium. The author nai shown tho sum*
just and delicate appreciation of literary excellence
in this, as in the former volume; and, as it reaches
down to our times, 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
of reading, thought, nice discrimination, and labori
ous coi densation of knowledge, are requisite to the
production of such a work , and jnst in proportion as
m?n toil more extensively in this fieltl, will be the
estimate they will put upon this result of the author s
Prom Grorge ft Rmrrmtn, Kfq , of'tlotton.
"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 jnst and discriminating , and, while they
aro long erough to gratify the curiosity we have to
know something of an author, fiey are so spirited as
to awaken a desire to know more. The selections
are admirable. I have adopted the work as a tefct
noak for iny first ciass, every individual of which is
now preparing, under its guidance, to give a faller
account of the writings of some one chosen author.''
From Rev. B. P. Afdilott, D. P., of Cineimmtti.
" I have examined with much care, and still greats
er plearure, and, I truat, not a little profit, your
English Literature of the Ntnete*Dth Century.' *

and yet it ia not too large for oofruJnr use. Consid

IS the cheapest and best Musical Paper in the
wprld. This Journal, which has heretofore been
published monthly, commences its fifth year in Jan
uary next, and thenoeforward it will bo published
every two weeks?on every other Thursday; theroby
giving more than twice as much matter, without any
increase in price. Each number contains sixteen
quarto pages, four of which are new music, consist
ing of glees, hymn tanas, chants, anthems, dedication
and holyday pieces, and, in short, every variety of
inusio adapted to purposes of religious worship, to
public occasion*, and to the home cirole, all of wnich
will be of a practica^cbaracter, and such as can be
sung by persons of ordinary musical attainments. In

Bradbury, Thomas llastings, and Lowell Mason;
and its circle of correspondence, home and foreign,
is complete. The Review will also be a regular me
diuin 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 that of any similar journal in the world,
and the new arrangements, rendering it the cheapest
as well as (it is hoped) the most valuable musical
paper aver publisbod, must largely increase its al
ready unparalleled circulation.
Trrmt. ? One dollar per annum, or six copies for

five dollars in the usual form. Beside this, tnere will
be an immense amount of musical nows, essays, crit

music will surely subscribe.

Suck a Paper is demanded by the Farming
The publishers confidently believe that the agri
culturists of this country are beooming too mueh
awake to tho demands of their own oalling to b?
longer satisfied with the slow monthly issues of a pa
per professedly devoted to their interests, or to trust
alone to the irresponsible extract* in a "fanner'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 oountry in their continued effort to farniah a
weekly paper of a high and reliable character, which
shall be progressive, and at tho same timo cautious
and conservative in all its teachings.
Essentially an Agricultural Paper.
The Agriculturist will not depart from its legiti
mate Sphere to oatch popular far or 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 be
devoted to matters not immediately pertaining to the
great business of Agriculture. The household as
well as the out-door work of the form win receive a
due share of attention. The humbugs And nostrums
afloat in the community will be tried by reliable sci
entific rules, and their worthleasness exposed. It is
the aim of the publishers to keep this paper under
the guidance of those who will make It a standard
work, which shall communicate to its readexs only
that which is safe and reliable.
An Independent Journal.
The A mrrtrun AgnrvJivritU stands upon its own
merits; and the truthfulness, teal, and ability,
which it brings to the support of the interests of the
farmer. It is untrammeled by any oollateral busi
ness connections whatever; nor Is 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 elan.
