PARENTS and PRINCIPALS OF SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, &c. are particularly solicited to read the following list of Educational Works, as many of them are unequalled of their class, and it is of the greatest impor. tance that the best editions of School Books should be placed in the hands of youth. In general some opinion may be formed of a School from the books in use.

LATIN.

"This is the best edition of Virgil in any language. The Prolegomena ably written, and the copious English Notes, collected from the most learned Continental commentators and critics, supplying all the information the student can stand in want of.

ANALYSIS OF ALVARY'S PROSODY, with an Exposition of the Horatian Metres. By the Rev. WM. BAILLIE, LL.D., Ex-S. T.C.D., Rector of Clondevaddock, and late Master of Kilkenny College. Second Edition, enriched with Illustrative and Demonstrative Notes, and Three Appendices, (viz.: 1. Figures of Rhetoric; 2. Remarks on the Quantity of the Penalt of Words; 3. Latin Accentuations; 4. Figures of Prosody,) selected from Dr. Anthon. By TOWNSEND YOUNG, LL.D., Anthor of the Pronouncing and Etymological Spelling Book, &c. 18mo. bd. ls. 6d.

HEBREW.

PSALMS OF DAVID (FIRST TWELVE) in HEBREW, with an improved Latin Translation, and Pronunciation according to the vowel points; with an extensive Praxis. To which is appended a Hebrew Grammar, by the Rev. W. BAILLIE, LL.D. 8vo. cloth, pp. 264, 14s.

This work is admitted to be the best ever published on the subject, and includes many of the modern improvements of Gesenius and others, not to be found in " Bythner's Lyra." An easy Hebrew Grammar is added, which renders the study of this language comparatively simple.

"We recommend this book for its comprehensiveness, which is no ordinary merit. The prefix, if we may so speak, of the First Twelve Psalms in Hebrew, with a Latin version, pronunciation, and parsing, renders this work still more complete and valuable. It is an excellent plan to have a good grammar, and a sufficiently wide field for its practical application within the compass of the same volume. As Dr. Baillie has been so candid as to acknowledge

his obligations to Mr. Benmohel for his superintendence of the press, we cannot withhold our commendation of his accuracy. We seldom met a work with so few errata, and those of such little consequence."-Christian Examiner.

BAILLIE'S (REV. WM. LL.D.) SCHOOL HEBREW GRAMMAR, compiled from the best authorities, and designed as an introduction to that Sacred tongue. 8vo. cloth, lettered, 6s. 6d.

The Editor's object has been to glean such information as the youthful scholar may implicitly rely on, and to present it in so tangible a form, that it may be readily understood by the most inexperienced mind.

GREEK.

DARLEY'S (REV. J. R.) GRECIAN DRAMA, being a Treatise on the Dramatic Literature of the Greeks. 8vo. cloth, 12s. DARLEY'S (REV. J. R.) TREATISE on HOMER, with Miscellaneous Questions, &c. 12mo. cloth, 5s.

The whole forming a complete and easy method for the ENGLISH to speak pure FRENCH in a very short time. By DESIRE PONTET, Ex-Professor of Modern Languages, at the Ecole Royale des Mines de Paris, and autnor of several works on Education. 12mo. bound, 4s.; with Maps of the Verbs, 5s. 6d.

ENGLISH.

YOUNG'S PRONOUNCING AND ETYMOLOGICAL SPELLING BOOK, adapted to the purposes of liberal education, for Junior and Senior Classes; in which

1. The Principles of Pronunciation are gradually developed. 2. The Division of the Syllables corresponds with the Pronunciation. 3. The Meanings are accurate and simple, without being ridiculous or burthensome. 4. The Etymology is treated in a more systematic and attractive manner than has been hitherto done-all its classical austerity and uncomeliness having been removed, in deference to the English student. 5. The Greek, Latin, and French roots of several thousand words are given, with Etymological Exercises subjoined. 6. Critical observations are judiciously interspersed on the uncertainty of our orthography, and the leading errors of an absurd and confused pronunciation, which has been for some time gaining ground, through the almost universal neglect of first principles and the established analogies. By TOWNSEND YOUNG, LL.D. Second Edition, containing many additions. 12mo. bd. 1s. 6d. "We strongly recommend to all persons engaged in teaching, to see this work, as we are confident they will approve of it, and by their using it, tend to the advancement of youth and of their own reputation, as it is unquestionably the most accurate, systematic and polite intro. duction to our language."-Statesman.

"Teachers examine this work, read its plain, decisive, fact-laden preface, and weigh carefully the eleventh section of the second part. We urge you to take so much trouble, and we feel convinced that when you have followed our respectful but strenuous advice, you will come to our conclusion, that this is the first attempt to popularize the principles of pronunciation, to diffuse amongst youth a radical knowledge of the English language, and to correct the corruptions which invade our glorious vernacular.'"-Dublin Lit. Journal.

THE HAND-BOOK OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR. 18mo. bound, price ls.

"A well compiled work on grammar, containing whatever is necessary for pupils in public seminaries and private families, and rejecting every thing superfluous, must always be acceptable to teachers. The Hand-book is of this description. It has also the additional recommendation of cheapness. Its peculiar characteristic is a copious glossary, giving the explanation of all the words in the treatise which are derived from the learned languages, and from the French and Italian, with their roots in the original tongue, and their meanings in English. The iuconvenience of interrupting the course of an explanatory sentence by the parenthetical insertion of the derivation and meaning of the technical terms used in it is thus avoided, and The young pupil has his memory stocked with a copious vocabulary of words of most frequent occurrence in the learned languages, by means of which his rudimental progress in his classical studies will be much facilitated."-World.

By JAMES

"The incidental and graphic quotations from such modern tourists and eminent writers as Lamartine, Byron, Stephens, Doctor Lawrence, Moore, Campbell, Chateabriand, Rogers, Southey, &c. besides vesting every spot with an interest historical or biographical, tend in a high degree to develope and cultivate a taste for polite literature. As the author states in the preface History and Geography are thus made to reciprocate their assistance;' the pupil is not fatigued with dry details of columns of provinces, cantons, countries, and departments to be had by rote; he finds matter congenial to his taste, and views the globe as the habitation of rational beings, divided into different kingdoms and states, and exhibiting various monuments of skill and industry. We wish the author the most sincere success, and trust that this little work will meet with the approbation to which it is entitled,"-Freeman.
