information three times as extensive as that supplied by the generality of Quarto Atlases.]

This beautiful and most useful little volume, says the Literary Gazette, is a perfect picture of elegance, containing a vast sum of geographical information. A more instructive little present, or a gift better calculated to be long preserved and often referred to, could not be offered to favoured youth of either sex. Its cheapness, we must add, is another recommendation; for, although this elegant publication contains one hundred beautiful engrav. ings, it is issued at a price that can be no obstacle to its being procured by every parent and friend to youth.

This Atlas far surpasses any thing of the kind which we have seen, and is made to suit the popular libraries which Dr. Lardner and Mr. Murray are now sending into every family in the empire.--Monthly Review.

Its very ingenious method of arrangement secures to the geographical student the information for which hitherto he has been obliged to resort to works of the largest dimensions.-Atheneum.

THE RECTORY OF VALEHEAD. By the Rev. ROBERT Wilson Evans, M. A.

Universally and cordially do we recommend this delightful vo. lume. Impressed with the genuine spirit of Christianity; a diary, as it were, of the feelings, hopes, and sorrows of a family,--it comes home to all, either in sympathy or example. It is a beautiful picture of a religious household, influencing to excellence all within its sphere. We believe no person could read this work, and not be better for its pious touching lessons. --Literary Gaz.

We fearlessly pronounce this delightful little volume to be not only one of the most faultless, but every way valuable works it has ever fallen to our lot to recommend to public perusal.- Stamford Herald.

The Rectory of Valehead is a beautiful model of domestic life in the Christian home of a well-regulated family, and combines literary amusement with the most refined and intellectual improvement.-Scotsman.

A GENERAL VIEW OF THE PROGRESS OF ETHICAL PHILOSOPHY, chiefly during the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries. By Sir James MackINTOSH, M. P. In 8vo.

The best offspring of the pen of an author who in philosophical spirit, knowledge and reflection, richness of moral sentiment, and elegance of style, has altogether no superior--perhaps no equal--among his contemporaries. Some time ago we made copious extracts from the beautiful work. We could not recommend the whole too earnestly.--National Gazette.
