TIVE of TWENTY YEARS' RESIDENCE in SOUTH AMERICA. By W. B. STEVENSON, formerly Private Secretary to the President and Captain-General of Quito, Colonel, and Governor of Esmeraldas, Capitan de Fragata, and late Secretary to the Vice-Admiral of Chile. His Excellency the Hon. Lord Cochrane, &c. Containing Travels in Arauco, Chile, Peru, and Colombia; with an Account of the Revolution, its Rise, Progress, and Results.

"The whole of this gentleman's work, indeed, confirms theassertion of his preface, that he enjoyed opportunities for obtaining materials for the formation of this work such as few individuals could possess, and such as no foreigner could possibly enjoy at the period of his residence.' We are here indebted to Mr Stevenson for the first connected view of the whole struggle of the Western South Americans for all that can dignify life. Both for those historical details, and for the varied and intimate knowledge of the people, the political condition, the commerce, &c., Mr Stevenson is, beyond all doubt, the best authority which we yet possess, and his work is by far the most valuable and extensively useful publication on these subjects which has fallen within our notice."-Monthly Review.

We know not when, if ever, we have perused two volumes of the description of these now before us, with more intense curiosity, amusement, and instruction."-Literary Gazette.

"There is a strain of heart-melting piety running like a vein of gold through these amusing volumes, which cannot but delight the pious mind."-Morning Paper.

"These volumes must rank with our first English classics, and must go down to posterity as specimens of the English language rarely surpassed."-Evangelical Magazine.

Lately published, by the same Author,

In Two Volumes, 12mo, elegantly printed by OLIVER & BOYD,
Price 10s. boards,

Mr Sillery is still very, very young; yet he has visited, not only mentally, but bodily, the uttermost parts of the earth. He has been rock ed by the tropic billows-has seen the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte -doubled the cape of storms-gazed on the palmy headlands of Hindostan, and learnt to eat with chop-sticks in China. But we are dealing too largely in generals. The Citadel of the Lake' is before us, and the world is, of course, anxious to know what we think of its architecture."

"Mr Sillery, with a warmth of gratitude that redounds to his honour, has dedicated his two volumes to his Excellency Baron G. A. P. Van Der Capellen, late Governor-General of the Indian possessions belonging to the King of the Netherlands, in whose company he returned from the East, and who was the first person of distinction who patronized his juvenile muse.-The mutations of his boyhood have given a versatility to his muse that it would not be easy to parallel: it leaps like lightning from land to land, and from sea to sea, it wanders into all variety of rhythm; and it transmutes into verse all sorts of topics, however recondite. There is a piling of armoura marshalling of brand and banner-an apparelling of maidensglittering of gems-a clustering of fruits-a grouping of trees-a ing of waves, such as no other poem that we are acquainted with exstrewing of flowers-a tinting of skies-a smiling of seas, and a tosshibits. As evidence of the genuine piety that pervades Vallery,' in which, indeed. we have not discovered one loose or indecorous sentiment, we quote the following ardent apostrophe to NATURE-Mr

VALLERY; or, The CITADEL of the LAKE. A Poem. By CHARLES DOYNE SILLERY. "Fierce wars and faithful loves shall moralize my lay."-SPENSER. The Poem is comprised in Nine Cantos; containing Sketches of the Crusaders--the Chivalry of France and Spain-the Moors-the Arabians--Description of the Palace of Mahomed King of Granada -the Procession of the King from the Generaliffe to the Alhambra -the Pyrences the Mediterranean-the Persian Gulf-the Red Sea -the Arabian Desert-the Coralline Island-a Bull-Fight-a Tournament--Battle of the Moors and Christians-a Tempest and Com-Sillery's reading has been immense, and no scrap that could illustrate bat at Sea-the Siege of Vallery-Conquest of the Red Cross-Death and Funeral of Lord Vallery-Song of the Pirates-Song of the Sisters-Song of the Arab Seamen-Song from the Caravans in the Desert-Song from the Crusading Galleys-Song of the Almeh-Hindoo Boat-Song-the Huntsman's Morning and Evening Chorus-the Lays of Six Minstrels-Anthem-Serenades, &c. &c. &c. The whole interspersed with various Moral and Religious Reflections; and accompanied with several hundred Notes, Historical, Descriptive, Critical, and Philosophical; partly original, and partly collected from admired, authentic, and valuable Authors.

OLIVER & BOYD, Edinburgh; SIMPKIN & MARSHALL, London; ROBERTSON & ATKINSON, Glasgow; W. CURRY, Jun., & Co., Dublin.

"We have pleasure in directing the attention of our readers to this work. We find much to be pleased with, and hail with confidence and gratification this accession of a fresh and ardent-minded lover of the Muses, to the list of those whose names are already familiar to the public ear."

his poem has escaped him, whether buried in the musty tomes of departed genius, or floating down to oblivion with the ephemeral literature of the day. Not satisfied with copious quotatious, he refers the reader to nearly a hundred works, ancient and modern, illustrative of Chivalry, which may be advantageously consulted."-Edisburgh Observer.

We confidently predict that Vallery will be a standard work, and a great favourite with the public."-Caledonian Mercury.

There are numerous lines which we could quote as specimens of fine poetic power and feeling. He possesses a creditable portion of information and learning,-his mind is obviously well cultivated,his sentiments are faultless,-his imagination is ardent,-and his genius is built upon the solid foundations of extensive literary acquirements."-Glasgow Scots Times.

"Never were mottoes to a work more strikingly descriptive of its prevailing characteristics of purpose and execution, than those which have been selected to herald Vallery, by its author. The passing inspiration of the hour has led to a series of various and curious experiments in measure, the diversity of which is greater than we ever remember to have met with in any other narrative poem.-With a daring that has something bold and redeeming in it, even blank verse is, for the first time, interspersed with rhyme in the splendid Mosaic, along which the stream of story sparkling flows with a brightness that confuses us, and a bubbling music, that almost make amends for the foamy obscurity sometimes that mars its clearness, -It is needless to detail the story of a splendid series of pageants. Let the play-wrights and opera-composers look to that. It would make a gorgeous spectacle, as it makes a dazzling romance displaying a rare and varied lore, altogether extraordinary in so young a man."-Glasgow Free Press.

"Mr Sillery's verses are calculated to convey not pleasure alone, but also instruction, which ought to be the great aim of all writers, and the chief object of all readers. Mr Sillery has cultivated his mind. His classical lore, his scientific information, and his habits of industrious research, are apparent in almost every page.-A second, and no less powerful consideration, induces us to bestow the meed of praise upon our author. His principles are pure, his feelings are strong, and his enthusiasm, as yet unimpaired, is all directed towards laudable objects. He is a passionate admirer of nature in all her moods; he is full of benevolence towards all his fellow creatures; there is none of the littleness of false pride, or of morbid sensibility, or of harsh misanthropy, whether real or pretended, about his book. He writes as a young poet always should, honestly and unaffectedly, pouring over his subject the warm glow of native, virtuous, and healthy sentiment. He is deeply imbued with the best part of a poet's nature-the warm affections and gene-ing, and a correct moral sentiment; of this every page of his book rous aspirations of the soul, from which all that is selfish is excluded, and which elevate to eminence, simply by refining the grosser parts of our nature."-Edinburgh Literary Journal, April.

"What we especially like in Mr Sillery is, that his style is formed after no particular model; it is fresh and luxuriant, and altogether his own."-Edinburgh Literary Journal, May.

"This is a metrical romance, redolent of true poetry, and bearing the stamp of genius in almost every page. It is evidently the production of a young, and amiable, and enthusiastic mind."-New Scots Magazine.

"The poem takes a different turn, and introduces us to scenes that delight the senses, encourage the daring, and reward the enterprises of heroic valour. The poetry, which is much diversified in metre, is highly respectable in its character, bringing before us at times coruscations of thought which border on the sublime. To the lovers of chivalry, romance, crusades, and the tumultuous ebullitions of the dark ages, The Citadel of the Lake' will furnish much entertainment."-Imperial Magazine.

"His memory is stored with recent and diversified reading, which is freely given out in his copious and curious illustrative notes, and which likewise appears abundantly in the course of the poem. We have met with no finer description of the approach of morning, even in Lucretius, than the following.-It affords us unfeigned pleasure to have it in our power to state, that his feelings are ardent and excellent, that his piety is pure and devout, and that his views of religion are enlightened and evangelical.-His poem, all things considered, is an extraordinary performance."-Edinburgh Evening Post.

"A more enthusiastic child of song than Charles Doyne Sillery, has rarely appeared on this terraqueous globe. We have seen him in retirement, and we have seen him in society, and whether seated in the dark penetralia of our office, or acting the gay and gallant cavalier among fair women and brave men, we found him invariably the same single-hearted, frank-spoken, honest fellow. Like Anacreon Moore, his wit flashes in incessant coruscations. Like the same illus trious bard, he sings his own songs, and dashes even his prose with poetical ornature. He possesses, moreover, the astronomical enthusiasm of a Newton, the philosophic vein of a Brown, and the mechanical skill of a Watt. About the ordinary size, and exceedingly slender in figure; we never look upon his eye, gleaming with intellectual fire, but we think of the

mighty soul, that, working out its way, Fretteth the puny body to decay.'

"We have read Mr Sillery's volumes with very great pleasure: and have no hesitation of assigning to him a place in the first class of what is bestowing upon him very great additional praise, his heart is our poetical jeunesse. He is a young man of decided genius, and, of a right kind, having stored up in it an abundance of amiable feel

affords evidence. Even in his most discursive parts, there is an air of freshness and originality. We recommend Mr Sillery's book to our readers, promising them much pleasure in the perusal of it.Dundee Courier.

employed. Mr Sillery has resided in India; all his pages glow with Eastern scenery; our eyes are dazzled-blinded with the overpowering lustre of Eastern gems, Eastern birds, insects, fruits, and flowers: our senses oppressed with Eastern perfume and the songs of the bul bul. Mr Sillery is a youthful bard,' with a memory stored with the productions of our best poets, with a mind alive to all the beauties of nature."-La Belle Assemblee.

"Every form which English verse is capable of assuming has been

"There is a great deal of genius in this poem, the best proof of which is, the degree of attention it has excited. The poem of Val lery has obtained considerable notice; and this circumstance, by creating a presumption that it was not an ordinary production, induced us to read it. We found our inference correct: there is a delightful freshness about the work. The verses seem not to be dis inexhaustible spring of fancy and feeling. They are full of tendertilled from an alembic of imitation and study, but to flow from an ness and passion; and there is throughout a tone of such purity, so much loftiness of sentiment, and ardent and unaffected piety, that out strong feelings of pleasure. His Oriental pictures, in particular, there are few, we will venture to say, who will read the poem with are splendid and glowing. There is much freedom and command of poetical language in his style, and great variety in his versification. He has a strong feeling for the melody of verse. The following most gorgeous picture of a tropical sunset is evidently painted from nature. We close this book with feelings of admiration of Mr Sillery's kings."-Edinburgh Weekly Journal. genius-a genius destined, we trust, to accomplish great underta

Among the numerons hosts engaged, there was scarcely a man who did not feel a more than ordinary solicitude as to the catastrophe. In chronicling the grand drama, history can only recount the main incidents, while by far the most interesting portions, namely, the detail of private achievement, of private feeling, and of private suffering, is passed over, or consigned to the biographer or the novelist. The author before us unites these two qualifications, and has constructed a series of stories, of which it may not be too much to say, that they will, on account of their subject and their power of narration, be read again and again, like those famous legends to which the battle of Cressy and Agincourt have given immortality."— Morning Paper.

equally well planned and well executed. Great ability is shown in the condensation of all the requisite matter into one thick volume, which, owing to the clear and beautiful mode of printing and engraving, is justly entitled to be called a cheap one, not only in comparison with the tedious and expensive works on the same subject, but in reference to the quantity of reading it contains, and the superior style of its execution.”—Examiner.

"This work justly deserves to be considered a History of the British Nobility. It comprises a quantity of matter equal, we are assured, to no less than 12 octavo volumes !!”—John Bull.

vigour of understanding, united with infinite legal acuteness. "We
would particularly notice the Editor's views of the Marriage Law,

I. By augmenting the contents of the page, but without decreasing the size of the type, the work, while much improved in appearance, will be comprised, notwithstanding the great extension of its matter, in Twenty Quarto Volumes, handsomely printed on paper of a superior quality, twenty volumes of the present being nearly equal to twenty-four of the former Editions. Each volume will consist of 800 pages, containing a much greater quantity of matter than any similar publication; and the Proprietors hold themselves distinctly pledged to the Public, that the work shall not, on any account, exceed Twenty-One Volumes: their present confident belief, at the same time, being that it will be completed in Twenty.

II. The publication will proceed in Monthly Parts, of which Six will form a volume; each part thus averaging above 133 pages. The first part will be published on the first of March 1830. As the printing of the whole will be finished long before the expiration of the period required for issuing the successive Monthly Parts, the Subscribers will have the option, at the close of that operation, of completing at once their copies of the work, or of abiding by the publication in Parts till the end of the series.

III. Each Part will be sold for Six Shillings, thus making the price of a quarto volume, of 800 ample pages, only Thirty-Six Shillings-a price very considerably lower than that of any similar publication of the day; and which, when the quantity of Matter in each volume, the quality of Paper and Printing, the numerous Engravings, and the ability of the Articles, are taken into account, must be allowed to place the work in a highly advantageous point of view. Considering its Execution and Extent, it will, indeed, present the cheapest Digest of Human Knowledge that has yet appeared in Britain, in the convenient form of a Dictionary.

USE; containing an Account of Diseases, and their Treatment, with Directions for administering Medicines; the Regulation of Diet and Regimen; and the Management of the Diseases of Women and Children. By ALEXANDER MACAULAY, M.D. Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, and PhysicianAccoucheur to the Edinburgh New Town Dispensary.

"The observations on climate, diet, regimen, and the management of infants, are interesting and judicious,-they comprise all the best established information on the subject. To parents, and those who have the superintendance of children, this work must be a useful guide; in all respects, indeed, the Dictionary of Dr Macaulay is calculated to gratify rational curiosity, to enlighten the minds of the public in general on inedical subjects, and to dffuse correct notions on many topics which are too often disguised in technicalities, or debased by superstition. It is, above all, an excellent antidote to every species of quackery and empiricism.”—Edinburgh Medical Journal, No. 96.

"We have seen nothing of the kind more opposed to quackery, or better adapted for consultation."-Literary Gazette.

"We know not a safer manual of medicine in our language.”— Scots Times.

"Decidedly the most useful book of the kind which has yet been offered to the public.”—Caledonian Mercury.

BERTHA'S VISIT to her UNCLE in ENGLAND; comprising a variety of interesting information for Young Persons.

"A great variety of information is here pleasantly collected; and though we are very far from wishing to see any young ladies of our acquaintance either chemists, botanists, or geologists, yet such slight knowledge as, without dabbling in scienc and hard words, does away with the prejudices of complete ignorance, may gracefully be made subjects of female acquirements.

"We must add, that BERTHA'S VISIT will be a most agreeable Christmas present to our young friends."-Literary Gazette. JOHN MURRAY, Albemarle Street, London.

"The British Magazine" will aim to be considered a monthly journal of Literature, Science, and Art, which the heads of families may receive under the perfect assurance that it will contain nothing to which the most scrupulous can object, while it supplies information, and provides amusement, upon important or agreeable topicsfurnishes just and liberal notices of all recently published worksconveys intelligence of modern improvements in science-traces the progress of art-describes the nature, and watches the proceedings, of public institutions-and directs the attention to matters of still higher importance: those principles of religious truth and moral excellence, by which Great Britain has been so pre-eminently distintinguished among the nations of Europe.


Orders for "The British Magazine" will be received by JOHN BOYD, and any Bookseller in the Kingdom.

On Monday, the 4th of January next, will be published,


TIMES, and Agricultural and Commercial Advertiser, price only Sevenpence, which will contain fuller and more accurate tables of all the Markets in the Kingdom for Corn, Cattle, and Merchandise of every description, than is contained in any other Newspaper, and give the fullest intelligence on all Foreign and Domestic subjects. The "Country Times" will contain 32 closely-printed coJumus in eight pages, the subjects so arranged and classified as to enable the reader to turn at once to any particular article. It will also be so formed, that it may be separated into two complete sheets, each having its own department of information, and, therefore, capable of accommodating two readers at once, and, in fact, answering the purpose of two Newspapers. An Index and Title-page will be annually published: thus enabling the subscribers to bind up their papers, which will form, at the close of the year, a volume of peculiar interest, from the great variety of topics embraced in its pages. Orders received by all Booksellers, News-Agents, Postmasters, and

FOR THE PREVENTION OR REMOVAL OF HOARSENESS, SORE THROAT, &c. BUTLER'S ACIDULATED LOZENGES OF CAYENNE are particularly recommended for Sore Throat, Enlargement of the Tonsils, Relaxation of the Uvula and Membranes of the Throat, and consequent Hoarseness, so prevalent at this season of the year.

They have been found of great utility by persons who are in the habit of speaking în public; and the highest testimony in the musical world has been advanced in their favour, especially when, from continued exertion of the voice, or the influence of a humid atmosphere, the membranes have become relaxed, and diminished in their tone.

These Lozenges are also recommended as a refreshing stimulus during field sports, or any unusual exertion.

Prepared by Messrs BUTLER, Chemists to his Majesty, 54, Lower Sackville Street, Dublin, and 73, Prince's Street, Edinburgh, and (authenticated by their name and address in the labels which are affixed on the tops of the Boxes) may be obtained of the principal Druggists in the country; of whom also may be had, their ANTACID LOZENGES of QUININE, for relieving Heartburn, Flatulence, Indigestion, and giving tone to the Stomach. 2s, and is. 6d. per Box.
