By JAMEs McSHERRY, Esq., of the Frederick Bar.

The National In'elligencer says:—“No State in the Union better deserves the labors of the historian, whether we regard her early settlement, her liberal charter, or the part she bore in the great revolution which made us a nation, or the number of eminent men horn within her limits ; and there is scarcely one of the original thirteen about which so little trouble has been taken to c, lect authentic notices The author’s style is modest and unpretending, and the narrative is uuexceptionable in sentiment We would invite the attention of our public schools to this book, as one well deserving to be introduced into such of the schools as einbrace instruction in history.”

Lectures to Young Men, on the Cultivation of the Mind, the Formation of Character, and the Conduct of Life; by George W. Burmap, LL. D. Illustrated with a Portrait of the Author. . The Publishers, in calling public attention to these valuable works, deem it unnecessary to add anything in the way of commendation. The high estimation in which Mr. Burmap’s writings are held in this country and in Europe, are the best evidence of their general utility. These works have passed through several large editions in this country, and have been republished in England, where several large editions were sold immediately. They are now ranked as “STANDARD LITERATURE,” and are, according to the statement of the English Press, “ Destined to become Household Books.” , AS USEFUL GIFT BOOKS, all Parents should place copies of these Works in the hands of their Sons and Daughters, and every Husband should give a copy to his Wife. The Lecture on the PRESERVATio N of HEALTH alone will amply repay them for the expenditure.

Every one who takes an interest in the subject ought to have a copy of this GREAT Work of the AGE, that he might read it himself and lend it to his neighbor.

Recently published, in 5 vols. 8vo, cloth $10; library style, marbled edges, $12. Bishop England's Works, published under the auspices and imme

diate superintendence of the late Rt. Rev. Bishop Reynolds, of Charleston.

The subjects of these volumes present attractions, not only to the inquirer after religious truth; but to the Statesman and the Lawyer they present much that is worthy of their study, as well for the subject matter, as for the style of the writer, and the simplicity of the language which he used to embody the analytical deductions made by his gigantic mind. His Discourses furnish Models of Oratory worthy of imitation by Divines, Statesmen, and members of the Legal Profession. It is difficult to say in what Dr. England excelled;—as an orator, he was great, sublime, thrilling;-as a Theologian, his profound erudition, and familiarity with the writings of the Fathers of the Church, and with Ecclesiastical History of all ages, and all countries, place him high amongst the highest:-as a Controversialist, the evenness of his temper, the lucidity of his reasoning, and the force of his language, command for him the respect of his antagonist, and the admiration of all his readers.

“We trust that Protestant and Catholic will vie with each other in shewing that they love literature and appreciate worth, without regard to sectarian prejudice.” Charleston Cowrier.

The object contemplated by THE AMUs ING LIBRARY is to provide a choice supply of Books of Light Reading, entirely free from objectionable matter, and which may be indiscriminately used by young and old. In the selection, great pains will be taken to admit no Work that is not in every respect adapted for the perusal of all who desire a sound and healthy imaginative literature, free from every thing immoral on the one hand, or controversial on the other. The volumes while issued at a price which bring them within the reach of all, yet possess sufficient attractions of typography and embellishment to fit them for the drawing-room table and for presents.

It is proposed to comprise a choice selection of the best of the imaginative writings of various countries. With original tales and reprints of home authors will be united the best fictions of other lands,-Belgian, French, German, Spanish, Italian, &c.; and as the scenes will be laid in different countries and at different periods, the volumes will not only furnish amusing reading, but will likewise convey, especially to the youthful reader, much historical and other information.

In pursuance of this idea, the Editors have much gratification in announcing that they have made an arrangement with the distinguished Belgian Novelist, M. Henri Conscience, by which they will be enabled to include in their Library an authorized edition of all his works. They are also in communication with several other soreign authors of distinction, whose works will be speedily announced.

THE CURSE OF THE WILLAGE, and THE HAPPINESS OF BEING RICH,
Two Tales in one volume, Embellished with a very neat Frontispiece.
Frown. o original o o o: conce.

The London Jathemseum in noticing this volume, says:– “These two tales by the favorite popular novelist of Belgium will do his reputation no dis-service. The first may be called a temperance story, such as would delight the heart of Mr. Gough or Mr. Cruikshank.”

The London Weekly Times says:—“The first of these tales is a vigorous description of the evils of drunkenness, and the whole story is touching in the extreme.”

Just Published, uniform with the above,

THE LION OF FLANDERS ; or, The Battle of the Golden Spurs.

A Historical Romance of the Glorious 1)ays of Flanders,

The Revue des deua, Mondes, says:—“This romance displays a talent full of vigor and skill. The picture, especially, with which it closes, is a masterpiece of art and power.” The Church of England Quarterly, says : —“The Lion of Flanders at once stamped its writer as a man of mark. Having once taken up a volume of this stirring narrative, we found the greatest difficulty in laying it down ; indeed, since the publication of the Waverly Novels, we have never been so absorbed by any work of fiction.” Just published, uniform with the above,

VEW A; OR, THE WAR OF THE PEASA NTS.

A Historical Tale of the Eighteenth Century. With a Frontispiece and Vignette.

This beautiful tale preserves the memory of the grand though unavailing struggle of the Flemings to uphold their religion and liberties against the armies of the French Republic, and thus ranks with those narratives which recount the immortal deeds of the Vendeans and the Chouans. The Author throws himself antidst the events he relates with characteristic impetuosity, and has lavished on the story all the power and grace of his vivid and picturesque style. It is in part a love-story, and more of a historical romance, in the English sense of the word, than most of the author’s works; yet it is nevertheless scrupulously accurate in statement, and never in any way violates historical truth.

The Hastings News says:—“The ‘War of the Peasants' portrays the inimitable self-devotion of the patriots who sought vainly to stay the march of French armies into Belgium. It is a book that stirs our feelings and warms our blood; but the emotions it awakens are generous, and the fire enkindled is that holy fire of patriotism, which God forbid should ever become extinct in any land.”

The Soirées B, warelloises says:–“Whatever may be the value of the romances published this year, there is not one of them which comes near the ‘War of the Peasants of M. Hendrik Conscience. Every where the reader is under the influence of a powerful fascination, and his interest is most vividly excited.”

. NEARLY READy, uniform with the above, TALES OF OLD FLANDERS: Count Hugo of Craenhove; Wooden Clara,

The Revue des Dewa, Mondes says:—“Nothing can be more admirable than the picture which this legend of Old Flanders presents. . The poetry of its details, the delicacy of its sentiments, and the melancholy grace which pervades it, lend it a charm which is irresistible.”

THE MISER; RICKETIC KET ACK.

“The success of Conscience’s writings is a blessing and a boon. It is matter of congratulation that every one reads, and wishes to read again, these books so tender, so gentle, so simple, so familiar and touching, chosen friends and companions of every honest heart and of every cultivated mind. We have much to learn from him in concealed but most real art, in delieacy of touch, in genuineness of emotion, in native gracefulness, in the secret of that refined proportion and perspective which talent alone cannot teach,--which may be manifested in thirty pages, and which one may strive after in vain through a hundred Volumes.” M. de Pontmartin (“Causeries Littérairs,”)
