it presents of the extraordinary achievements of Mr. Brooke in Borneo, who, obtaining the sovereignty of a province of that wild and unknown territory, has erected a kingdom, and accomplished a work of civilization and moral good, surprising as well for its amount as its unexpectedness. The narrative is pleasingly written, and discloses to the reader a new world full of promise of great things. We think each and all of the books of this series possess more than ordinary value, and shall be glad if it preserves its present high character.

3.-Elementary Classical Works.

The Messrs. Harper have issued a Latin Chrestomathy, which strikes us as possessing unusual merits in some particulars, and as especially worthy the attention of teachers. It is entitled the First Book in Latin, and prepared by Professors McClintock and Crooks, of Dickinson College, Pā. Its chief peculiarity consists in the prominence it gives to those exercises in writing and speaking the language which are so essential to fix the principles of grammar

and language in the pupil's memory. The lessons proceeding in a philosophic manner, the variety and frequency with which each point is brought up, to be conned over and over, cannot fail to familiarize the pupil with the subject, before he proceeds to another. It appears to be a fine application of what are now known as Ollendorff's principles to the acquisition of this noble tongue.

An Elementary Greek Grammar, compiled from the larger work lately issued, by Dr. Ralph Kühner, has been published at Ăndover. The excellences of the original, which are now well known, and are probably unsurpassed by any other work among us, are preserved in ihis, and adapted to the use of the learner. We commend with pleasure its beautiful typography, as well as real worth.

The Harpers have issued an edition of the Eclogues and Bucolics of Virgil, with Prof. Anthon's Notes. It is uniform with their edition of the Eneid. We are quite pleased to see the different parts of this great author published separately. There will be a mach better chance of their being read.

We must also mention the publication of a new treatise on Algebra, by Prof. Loomis, of the N. Y. University. It introduces in a very lucid manner, adapted for elementary use, some of the higher principles of the science, which have hitherto been excluded from this class of works. In arrangement, and ingenuity of illustration, it appears to be very happy; and though comprehensive, not too concise for convenient use. "Published by Harper and Brothers.

4.-The Trees of America, Native and Foreign, pictorially and

botanically delineated. By D. J. BROWNE. Harper & Brothers.

The publishers have finely aided the author in bringing out a beautiful and valuable work in a barren and needy department of our current literature. The delineations of the writer are illustrated by numerous drawings, which add much to the accuracy of the reader's conception. There is a happy union of science, practical information and of pleasant gossip, relative to the whole literature of trees, so arranged as to throw light upon every point, either of the botany, the history, the uses, the management and culture, the paltology and the

poetry, of all the trees of our country, whether indigenous or exotic, that any reader can desire ; while the good taste and real ability with which all is accomplished, enhance its authority and add to its interest. For the gentleman whose taste seeks a beautiful expression in the arrangement and ornamenting of grounds, or the practical cultivator, or the scholar, or the mere reader, we should suppose the volume to possess more than ordinary attraction and value.

L We have to regret again the unavoidable exclusion of a large part of our Notices.




Dietlein W. O. Das urchristenthum. Primitive Christianity : an examination of the conjectures of the School of Dr. Baur of Tübingen, concerning the Times of the Apostles. A very conclusive refutation of the opinions of one of the most decided and extravagant of the Rationalistic School ; and is said to be valuable not only on its own account, but as a striking indication of that change of opinion which is going on in the religious literature of Germany.

Heringa, J. Opera Exegetica et Hermeneutica, Edidit, &c. H. E. Vinke. A valuable digest of the principal exegetical works of Heringa, especially those relating to the New Testament. These are known to scholars to be valuable.

Von Raumer, R. Die Einwirkung des Christenthums auf die Althochdeutsche Sprache. An ingenious attempt to show the effect of Christianity upon the development and establishment of the German language. The work is spoken of as falling short of the distinguished author's fame, and as being hardly worthy of the interesting subject.

Theremin, Dr. F. Demosthenes und Massillon. A treatise on Homiletics, viewed in connection with Oratory in general, which is highly spoken of as ingenious and striking. The highest praise is bestowed on Massillon, as an orator. Such a work is much needed.

Noack, Dr. Ludw. Der Religionsbegriff Hegels, Ein Beitrag zur Kritik der Hegelschen Religionsphilosophie. This work was published in Darmstadt in 1845, and is said to expose the radical misconceptions and errors of the Hegelian religious philosophy with great acuteness and candour.

Schegg, Peter. Die Psalmen ubersetzt und erklärt für Verständniss und Betrachtung. Schegg is a Catholic, but his work has great merit for its industrious comparison of the old versions, and its faithful adherence to correct principles of interpretation. The old interpretation of the Messianic Psalms is adhered to.

Niebuhr, B. G. Geschichte des Zeitallers der Revolution. The famous Lectures on the times of the Revolution, delivered by Niebuhr in the University of Bonn in the summer of 1829, are here first gathered together. The long delay has been owing to the indifference or unwillingness of Neibuhr's son, who assumed the editorship of his papers. The frequency with which they have been referred to, and the distinguished fame of tho author, have given them great interest. They are said, however, somewhat to disappoint the high expec:ations that have been raised.
