We have perused the book in ad vance of its publication, and find that it gives a life like picture of Pereira, the vessel in which he sailed the storms she encountered, and her wrecked condition when brought into the port of Charlestou, S. C.; to gether with the imprisonment of Pereira, several aea men belonging to th^ New Kngland States, and two French seamen ; tho prison regimen, character of the Charleston police, and the mendacity of certain offi cials, who make the law a medium of peculation. The work is replete with incidents of Southern life and character, pointiug Southerners to the things that call for correction at their own hands, with a force thai oannot be mistaken.

" Rollo ?>n the Atlantic " is the first book of a se ries to be published under the general title of Rollo's Tour in Euro)*. Extract from the Preface : ''The books nro intended to be books of instruc tion, rather than of mere amusement; and, in peru sing them, the reader may feel assured that all tho in formation which thoy contain, not only in respoct to the couutries visited, and to the customs, usagos, and modes of life 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 striot accordance with fact. Tho main design of the narra tive is thus the communication of useful knowledge; and everything which they contain, except what ia strictly personal, in relation to the actors in the story, may be depended upon ns exactly and scrupulously true."

Philadelphia, have recently published * 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 Charles 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, chronologi cally arranged ; 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 such as flourished in the eighteenth oentury, but died in the present; together with those strictly 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 tho writings of one hundred and six authors, the nainos of twenty-seven of whdm did not appear in the table of contents of tho former edi tion ; together with many improvements throughout the volume. Prof. C.'s two volumes of En?lisb Literature are now extensively used as 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," ars selected from a large number equally commenda tory of the work: From Prof. Clmunny A. Goodrich, D. D., of Yale College. " 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 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 yoang. Few persons can understand what an amount of rsadiog, thought, nice discrimination, and labori ous cot densation of knowledge, are requisite to the production of such a work ; andjust in proportion as men toil more exb nsively in This fluid, will be the estimate they will put upon this result of the author s labors " From George B. Rmertott, fwy., of' Host on. "I have examined your ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century,' and I like it exceedingly It is extremely well and fairly done. Tho biographical notices are just and discriminating; and, wnilo they are long enough to gratify tho cariosity 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 hook for my first daas, every individual of which ia now preparing, under its guidance, to give a fuller account of the writings of some one chosen author." From Rev. H. P. AydeUtt, D. D., of Cincinnati. " I have examined with much care, and still great er pleasure, and, I trust, not a little profit, your ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century. * * It is, I believe, the viehett collection of gemt in our language. Tbrre is nothing in it I would omit, and yet it is not too large for jnrpnlar use. Consid ering the very brief limits to which yon were obliged to confine yourself, I am surprised at the fullness and richness or your biographical details. Yonr roost difficult and delicate task, however, was the eritioal judgment to be pi seed up.n each anthor; and here I think yon have been very happy -discriminating and jest, and yet kind. * * But I would feel that whatever I have said about the volume, however trpe, ought to be considered i s of little worth, could I not add?as I cheerfully do?a stro g testiiqony to its high moral tone and eminently Christian spirit. The genersl roador cannot fail to be interested, the student profited, the scholar delighted, and the man of piety pleased, with your ' English Literature of the Nineteenth Century.'''

Root, William B. Bradbury, Thomas Hastings, and Lowell Mason; and its eirele of Jorrespondence, 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 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 ever published, must largely increase its al ready unparallelod circulation. Termu. ? Ono dollar per annum, or six oopies for five dollars, always in advance. Q^- The music alone in a volume would cost over five dollars in the usual form. Beside this, tnere will be an immense amount of musioal news, essays, orit icism, instruction, Ac., all for only one dollar!

THE AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST, a weekly l'eriodioal of aixtoen large quarto pagoa, making an aouual volume of 832 pages of nearly double tho sise of those in the first ten volumes of the Agricul turist. \ It is beautifully printed with type oast expressly for it, and on the best of clear white papor, witn wid? margin, so that the numbers can bo oaaily stitched or bound tegethor. A copious Index is weekljr added, which will bo fully amplified at the end of the year, for tho bound work. Comprehensive in its Character, Each volume will pontain all matter worth record ing, which transpires either at home or abroad, and which can serve to iustruot or interest the Farmer, tli? Planter, tho Fruit-(Jrower, the Gardener, and the Stock Breeder; thus making it tho most com plete and useful Agricultural Publication of the day. Correct and valuable Market Reports. The Markets will be carefully reported^ giving tho actual transactions whioh take place from week to week, in Grain, Provisions, Cattle, Ac.; thus keep ing our readers constantly and reliably advised aa to their interests. During the past year, the knowledge obtained from these Market Reports alone ho* aaved our readers 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 believe that the agri culturists of this country are becoming too. muoh awako to the demands of their own calling to bo 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 "fanner's column," so popular just now in papers chiefly devo ted to business, politics, or literature; aud they look for the unitod support of all the intelligent farmers of this country in their continued effort to furnish a weekly paper of a high and reliable character, whioh shall be progressive, and at the samo time cautious and conservative in all its teachings. Essentially an Agricultural Payer. The Agriculturist will not depart from its legiti mate sphcro to catch popular far&r by lumbering up it* pages, with the silly, fictitious literature, and light, miscellaneous matter ot the day; it has a high er aim; and a small part only of its spacc will be devoted to matters not immediately portaining to the Igreat business of Agriculture. The household at well as tho out door work of the farm will receive a due share of atlentinu. The humbugs and nostrums afloat in the community will be tried by reliable sci entific rules, aud their worthlescness 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 readecs only that which is safe and roliable. An Independent Journal. The Amertran Agrirutturiu stands upon its own merits; and the truthfulness, seal, and ability, which it brings to the support of the intorests of the' farmer. It is untrammeled by any collateral busi ness oonnectiens whatever; nor is it the organ of any clique, or tho puffing machine of any man or thing. Thoroughly independent in all points, its ample pa ges are studiously given alone to tho support and im provement of the great agricultural class. Editorial Department.
