WORKS ON ELOCUTION.

1. THE LITTLE SPEAKER: Being a Collection of Pieces, in Prose, Poetry, and Dialogue, designed for Exercises in Speaking, and for occasional Reading in Primary Schools. By CHARLES NORTHEND, A. M., author of Teacher and Parent. Price 30 cts.

From HENRY WOODHOUSE, Principal of Academy, Wyoming, Pa.

An admirable book, and one that cannot fail of deeply interesting young children, and many of an "older growth." It contains that kind of reading best calculated to improve the mind and hearts of the young.

2. THE AMERICAN SPEAKER: Being a Collection of Pieces, in Prose, Poetry, and Dialogue, designed for Exercises in Declamation. By CHARLES NORTHEND, A. M. Price 75 cts.

From the Boston Recorder.

The compilation has been judiciously made, and in excellent taste; the pieces are short, such as will meet the wants of school-boy declaimers. Selections calculated to foster a love for martial exploits have been excluded, and throughout the whole volume care has been taken to inculcate correct sentiments. Teachers will doubtless find this school-book of great practical utility; it seems to us to be superior to any book of the kind that we have ever met with.

3. SCHOOL DIALOGUES: Being a Collection of Exercises, designed for Schools. By CHARLES NORTHEND, A. M. Price 75 cts. The steady and increasing sale of this work is a safe guarantee of its intrinsic worth.

4. THE NEW AMERICAN SPEAKER: A Collection of Oratorical and Dramatical Pieces, Soliloquies, and Dialogues; with an Introductory Essay on the Elements of Elocution. Designed for the use of Schools, Academies, and Colleges. By J. C. ZACHOS. With Illustrations of Oratorical and Dramatical Gestures. 1 vol. 12mo. Price $1.25.

Professor Zachos was induced to prepare this excellent Manual of Oratory from the fact, that, among the numerous works of the kind now in use, none have been found adequate to the wants of students of oratory and dramatic expression.

From the Literary Advertiser.

This is a work which, for its purpose, has no superior. The selections appear to us tasteful and elegant. They are certainly made from authors of high classical reputa tion. Copious in matter, tasteful in style, and clearly and handsomely printed, it is a book, we apprehend, that will superse all others in the class and exhibition room, and become a general favorite with both teachers and students.

5. SELF-CULTURE IN READING, SPEAKING, AND CONVERSATION. Designed for Schools and Home Instruction. By WM. SHERWOOD. Price $1.00.

Boyd's English Poets.

THE ENGLISH POETS, WITH CRITICAL NOTES.

MILTON-YOUNG-THOMSON-COWPER AND POLLOK.

The Publishers beg leave to commend these annotated editions of the ENGLISH POETS to the particular consideration of Instructors, and of all who are concerned in selecting books for District School and other Libraries, as valuable text-books for schools, and deserving of a place in every library, public and private. They cannot better express their own views of the peculiar excellencies of these editions, than by copying a portion of the introductory observations of the editor, prefixed to TнoмSON'S SEASONS:

"In this age, when the press is covering our land with a frivolous and pernicious literature, there is great danger that the rising generation will too much neglect, if not entirely lose sight of those noble and solid productions of the British Muse which have been familiar to their predecessors-the Poems of Milton and Young, of Thomson and Cowper. These are worthy, not of a hasty perusal only, but of frequent and profound study-especially by the young-for the varied information which they contain; for the learning and taste, and high order of genius which they display; and for the eminent service which they are adapted to afford in the proper culture of the mind and of the heart."

Brooks' Greek and Latin Classics.

This series of the GREEK and LATIN CLASSICS, by N. C. BROOKS, of Baltimore, is on an improved plan, with peculiar adaptation to the wants of the American student. To secure accuracy of text in the works that are to appear, the latest and most approved European editions of the different classical authors are consulted. Original illustrative and explanatory notes, prepared by the Editor, accompany the text. These notes, though copious, are intended to direct and assist the student in his labors, rather than, by rendering every thing too simple, to supersede the necessity of due exertion on his own part, and thus induce indolent habits of study and reflec tion, and feebleness of intellect.

BROOKS' FIRST LATIN LESSONS.

Price 62 cents.

This is adapted to any Grammar of the language. It consists of a Grammar, Reader, and Dictionary combined, and will enable any one to acquire a knowledge of the Elements of the Latin language without an instructor.

BROOKS' OVID'S METAMORPHOSES.

8vo. Price $2.50.

This edition of Ovid is expurgated, and freed from objectionable matter. It is elucidated by an analysis and explanation of the Fables, together with original English Notes, historical, mythological, and critical, and illustrated by pictorial embellishments; with a Clavis giving the meaning of all the words with critical exactness. Each Fable contains a plate from an original design, and an illuminated initial letter.

BROOKS' FIRST GREEK LESSONS.

12mo. Price 62 cents.

This Greek elementary is on the same plan as the Latin Lessons, and affords equal facilities to the student. The paradigm of the Greek verb has been greatly simplified, and valuable exercises in comparative philology introduced.

BROOKS' GREEK COLLECTANEA EVANGELICA.

12mo. Price 62 cents.

This consists of portions of the Four Gospels in Greek, arranged in Chronological order; and forms a connected history of the principal events in the Saviour's life and ministry. It contains a Lexicon, and is illustrated and explained by notes.

BROOKS' HISTORIA SACRA. Price 62 cents. BROOKS' CÆSAR ILLUSTRATED. Price 1.25.

Rhetoric, Logic, and Intellectual Philosophy.

ELEMENTS OF THE ART OF RHETORIC. Adapted for use in Colleges and
Academies, and also for Private Study. By HENRY N. DAY, President of Ohio
Female College...............
.Price 75 cents.

It is a clear and systematic exhibition of the elements of the Art of Rhetoric. The prominent characteristics of his work are, the general exactness of his definitions, the clear limitation of his subject, the philosophic development of it, the large share of attention which he gives to Invention as a branch of Rhetoric, and his Analysis of Style.

THE SCIENCE OF LOGIC; or, An Analysis of the Laws of Thought.
By Rev. ASA MAHAN. Designed for Colleges....
Price $1.50

From the Banner of the Cross (Philadelphia).

"Taken as a whole, it forms the most full and complete text-book with which we are acquainted, and is destined to render good service to a study which cannot be safely omitted in the culture and education of any people."

From the New York Independent.

"Few men better understand the laws of thought, both in the way of mental analysis and of practical application, than the author of this treatise. After many years of patient study and large experience as a teacher, Dr. Mahan brings forth in this volume a System of Logic which has the merits of being intelligible and selfconsistent, and which, in addition to the author's carefully elaborated views, embraces the results of the ablest minds of Great Britain, Germany, and France, in the same department. We have not yet found leisure to study the work with sufficient care to pronounce a matured opinion as to its terms and method. But as a text-book for Colleges, it will probably take precedence of any now before the public; for, with a text-book in which the views of the author are so clearly and sharply defined and so vigorously maintained, an intelligent teacher cannot fail to have a wakeful class, capable of appreciating his own criticisms upon that author."

KAMES' ELEMENTS OF CRITICISM. With Additions and Improvements.
By Rev. JAMES R. BOYD.....
Price $1.25

The chief points of superiority claimed for the present edition are the following: 1. The matter heretofore contained in an Appendix has been brought forward, and forms the first part of the Introduction.

2. Frequent omissions have been made in the text and notes, where the matter was found to be either obsolete, of no utility, or objectionable on account of its indelicacy.

3. Many poetical quotations (particularly some of those in foreign languages), that seemed to be an incumbrance rather than an advantage to the work for purposes of education, have been abbreviated or omitted.

It will be seen that the present volume is not an abridgment of Kames, but it em. braces the entire work, with the exception only of those portions which every instructor and intelligent reader must regard as blemishes, or consider useless; while large additions have been made, from recent and valuable sources, to render more complete and satisfactory the incomparable treatise (as here presented) of this highlytalented and justly distinguished and popular author.

Numerous additions, of great value, have been added to the original work; and in scarcely a less degree, by striking from it a large amount of matter that greatly im pairs its excellence and usefulness.

A SYSTEM OF INTELLECTUAL PHILOSOPHY. By Rev. Asa MAHAN. Price $1.00.

From PROF. HORACE WEBSTER, LL.D., of the Free Academy, New York.

"I do not know any other treatise on Elementary Philosophy so well calculated to give a thorough, correct, and critical knowledge of this important science. I trust that it may be the means of creating a taste for this science, as it certainly will be, if studied, of giving a high idea of its importance in relation to all other departments of human investigation."

Monteith's History of the United States is designed for young scholars, on the catechetical plan, with Maps and Engravings. It has also Biographical Sketches of the most prominent men in early history.

Willard's Histories are used in a large proportion of the High Schools, Academies, and Female Seminaries throughout the United States, and have been recommended by several State Superintendents. The History of the United States is so highly esteemed, as accurate, reliable, and complete, that it has been translated, and published in the German, Spanish, and French languages.

The large work is designed as a Text-book for ACADEMIES and FEMALE SEMINARIES; and also for DISTRICT SCHOOLS and FAMILY LIBRARIES. The small work being an Abridgement of the same, is designed as a Text-book for Common Schools. The originality of the plan consists in dividing the time into periods, of which the beginnings and terminations are marked by important events; and constructing a series of maps illustrating the progress of the settlement of the country, and the regula advance of civilization. A full Chronological Table will be found, in which all the events of the History are arranged in the order of time. There is appended to the work the Constitution of the United States, and a series of Questions adapted to each chapter, so that the work may be used in schools and for private instruction.

Dwight's Mythology is peculiarly adapted for use as a Class-book in High Schools, Academies, and Seminaries, and is indispensable to a thorough acquaintance with Ancient History, and to a proper appreciation of the classical allusions constantly occurring in the writings of the best authors. It is also very valuable for private reading and study.

Ricord's Roman History is also designed as a Text-book for Schools, and for private reading and reference. It is the most complete and condensed History of the Romans before the public, and will be found exceedingly interesting, and very valuable to all, especially to those wishing to be familiar with the classics.
