THIRTY YEARS FROM HOME; OR, A VOICE FROM THE MAIN DECK:

BEING THE EXPERIENCE OF SAMUEL LEECH. Illustrated with Engravings. Tenth Edition. Price 50 cents.

This is an uncommonly interesting book. It is the simple and unvarnished narrative of an intelligent Sailor, who was for six years in the British and American navies; was captured by Decatur in the British ship Macedonian; and gives the details of that bloody conflict in the most graphic and thrilling style. He afterwards entered the American navy, and was taken in the United States' brig Syren, by the British ship Medway.

It is the truest picture of a Mariner's “World ever written. Commodore Nicholson, of the United States' Navy, who was an officer on board the same ship with Mr. Leech, highly recommends this book.

of the United States. By the Rev. CHARLES Rockwell, late of the United

From the Boston Mercantile Journal.
This is a valuable production-one which will attract much attention
abroad, as well as at home. It is different from the ephemeral books of
travels, without interest, stability, and often without truth, which have
been piled upon the booksellers' shelves within a few years. By being
connected with the United States' navy, he had facilities for prosecuting

his inquiries which do not often occur to travellers, and his cook contains a fund of matter, of an exceedingly interesting and useful charac. ter. His remarks relating to Spain and Portugal will be read with much interest. The chapters relating to Western Africa are also truly valuable.

Very rarely is a work, touching upon so many controverted subjects, received with such warm and general favor. Every one knows that such a history must be fraught with interest, and the more thoroughly one becomes acquainted with it, the more highly will it be valued as a faithful portraiture of the times._Boston Recorder.
