Complete in one volume in the uni form style of the brother Johnathan and New World Exrags. Price 12i cents each or $9 per anum. The work, which is considered by the best judges, superior to any of the previous productions of this talented and popular American author is being printed in the same style of the New World and Brother Johnathan Extras, at the office of S. N. Dickson, so well known lor the superiority of his style ot printing: No expense will be spared iy the publishers, Reddling &l Co. to render the appearence ot the work all that it should be in view of its great merit and uncommon interest. The scene of this latest ot Professor Ingraham's Novels, is laid principally in the highlands of the Hudson, and the romantic scenes of that noble river are depicted with singular felicity in truly poets prose. The following are the contents of some of the chapters, by which the reader may form a general idea of the work. Night in the Highlands Kirkwood or the rich Miser Paul Tathall The hawk and Pet llabbit The Fright Duncan Powell The Maid of Rock Hill The Gazella The storm An adven ture on the Hudson The danger and rescue Paul and the beauty of Rock Hill Duncan Powell's daring leap The interview and its results The ap pearence of Paul Tatnall and the des cription of the Maiden Jealonsly awa kened Paul declares his passion Its reception The extraordinary character of Catharine Ogilvie A parting scene The meeting between Paul and Duncan Their parting A mysterious murder The Gypsey and her lover The doom of the victim The dreadful end of the Gypsey mother ..Our Hero's arrival in New York and his experience of the obliging character ot a.luokny coachman, Paul's reception by his uncle His spirit, His subsequent career tor two years, His downward course, lie m i quarels and leaves his uncle, lhe mver Rover s Cub, lhe newly elected Cox swain, The lawless resolution of the band, Paul's character, His daring andtact. From the perusal of the above, it will be seen that the Gypsey of the High land abounds in incedent and adventure, and a perusal of the work itself will not only show this, but prove that a moral of the highest and noblest order is incul cated throughout: Under all circumstances there can be but little doubt that the Gypsey of the Highlands will be more extensively read both in the North and South' than anv other American novel since Cooper, Agents should send in their orders immediately as but a limited edition will be printed.
