will not recall me to life. I shall never, never return! I would rather earnestly recommend to their regard, my youthful successor, whose appearance is shortly expected. I cannot hope to live long enough to introduce him; but I would fain hope that he would meet with a favourable reception; and that, in addition to the flattering honours which greeted my birth, and the fair promises which deceived my hopes, more diligent exertion and more persevering efforts may be expected. Let it be remembered, that one honest endeavour is worth ten fair promises.”

ENGLISH LANGUAGE.

GRAMMAR. Wright's (J. C.) English Grammar and Analysis of sentences. Adapted to the

Mundella Code. F'cap 8vo, 180pp., cloth. Complete, ls. 6d.

“One more addition, and by no means a bad one, to the many English grammars already in existence. The author has evidently taken great pains to make the series progressive, and his efforts have not been unsuccessful.

His explanations are clear and forcible; the examples he gives are copious and thoroughly explanatory of the rules they are intended to illustrate.

Some of the chapters in the higher standards are specially readable. We give the whol series our cordial recommendation,"-Governess,

POETRY
Heywood's (John) Standard Poetry, with Explanatory Notes and Biographical Sketches.

Adapted to Standards IV., V., VI., and VII. of Reading; and as a Reading Book in the Class Subject of English under the Mundella Code; and suitable also for Private Schools. New Edition. Crown 8vo, cloth, ls.

“This book has obtained a well-earned popularity as a good selection of standard poetry for children. Interspersed between the verses of the poems are short summaries in simple prose of the poetical narrative. The compiler has included extracts from Shakspere, Goldsmith, Gray, Campbell, Burns, Coleridge, Cowper, Longfellow, Scott, Keats, Southey, Shelley, Wordsworth, and

Tennyson. Three of the old English Ballads are also given. The present edition has been further improved by a supplement containing short biographies of the poets, from whose works selectiuns have been taken. The book contains 168 pages, and is strongly bound in cloth. It would make a good alternative Reader for one of the higher Standards in the Mundella Code." -The Schoolmaster.

“Many books of poetry for schools are open to objection because the poems selected are of too contemplative a character. This is not true of John Heywood's ' Explanatory Book of Standard Poetry.' From this book many old favourite pieces are missing ; on the other hand, it contains SOME good well-known pieces, and many that are not so familiar. It will be a very useful book."-School Guardian.

" In printing, paper, and general 'get up' this book is well adapted for school use. The selections have been carefully made, and include many old favourites by Scott, Longfellow. Wordsworth, and other well-known authors. The present is a new edition, and differs from its predecessors in being supplemented by short biographical sketches of the various authors, the sketches occupying some eight or ten pages at the end of the book. The explanatory notes given here and there, and the simple paraphrasis which precedes each section of poetry, are, as a rule, well done, and will be of much assistance to the youthful reader in duly under standing his author.”—The Governess,

“This is a new edition of a book which has long been known to the public. The selection of the poems has been performed with judgment and care, and the result is a poetical reading book well adapted in subject-matter and style for the use of the upper Standards. A feature of the volume which deserves special mention is that the poems are divided into sections, and each section is preceded by a paraphrase, expressed in clear and simple language of its contents. The youthful reader is thus enabled to gain a clear a. insight into the meaning and scope of the poems than he otherwise would, and is also introduced to what most scholars consider a difficult art—the art of paraphrasing."--The Practical Teacher.
