Where storm af- ter storm rises dark o'er the way: The Since Jesus has lain there, I dread not its gloom; There

Away from yon Heaven, that blissful abode ;

GRAY'S CHEMISTRY: Or the Elements of Chemistry: containing the Principles of the Science,
both Experimental and Theoretical. Illustrated with numerous gravings. By A LONZO Gras, A.N., Professor of Chemistry and Natu. ral Philosophy in the Brooklyn Female Institute, Andover, Mass. Po vised edition. I vol., 12.no., 400 pages. $1. " In compiling the first edition of this work, the author Attempted to prepare a toz$ book which shouk! be well fitted for eleinentary instruction. Most of the works sa chemistry appeared to him to be either 100 profound, on the one hand, for ihose who were juet commencing ihe study, or tvo superficial, on the other, for those who wish to obtain : scientife knowledge of the subject. The design was to avoid these ivc ex Cretres, iud combine tne scientific with the popu'or and useful parts of the subject The rapid sale of the firsi editio!, ind its introduction into several colleges, have lea ts the inference, th:1! 'ho attempt has not been wholly unsuccessful. The author nits there fure been induced to revise and enlarge the work, and pit it into a perminent form. k large amomt of ina'ter, and numerous engravings, liave been added, for the phırpoo, of rendering the work belter adapted 10 academies and other schools. It is believed tha, greater success would offend the efforts of teachers in this branch of science if more at.. tention were given to the principles of chemistry, and less to its details. The fundamental principles being thoroughly understoc by the studen!, h3 is prepared to attend to the details with greaiur pleasure and success, as he will be able to connect the eflects with their appropriate causes. Under the inlerce of this belief the a!tor has given a greater proininence to the imponderable azerits and the thirteen non-retallic substances ihan to oiher paris of the work. Most of the illustrations and experiments are introduced in this pari, so as to present and illustrate the philosop!ıy of ccemical combinations and ihe general nature of the compounds thus furined ; in other words, tha causes of chemical changes and the mode of studying them."
This book is in general use as a text-book in the high-schools of the Northern and Eastern States. The present rovised edition contains all new improvements in the science.
From John Griscom, LL.D., Bierlington, N... GRAY'S CHEMISTRY,-An examination of this book convinces me that it is an exceedingly judicious arrangement of the facts of Chemistry. Its consecutive order is lucid and logical st indicales a mind accustomed to touch, as well as to study. !t seems to mo tu hull a happy medium betwoen the brevily, wbich only obscuires the s!!,jcct, and the copious details, of works too elaborate and minute for the general studorií.
In the prosent stało of chemical science, to produce a treatise, neither dark nor repulsive,--which is inviting, without being tedious,-is no small merit.
I have seen no work which has so completo an adaptation to schools and Academien end evo: .. the wants of Collegos, as this now edition of “Gray's Chemistry." BURLINGTOX, N I fin. d., 1850.
JNO, GHISCOM. From Prof. James N. McElligott, A.M., Principal of the Mechanics' Institute School,
New York. Altor a somewhat careful examination of the clains of Gray's Chemistry upon tho olucational community, I have reached the conclusion, that it s-ands forernost among lext-books on this subject.
Under this conviction, I havo just recommended the work to the Committoo prerid. lag over ine school with which I am connected, and they havo nucordingly ordered it to be used in the Institution.

BY P. MAC-GREGOR,
ACCOUNTANT AND ATTORNEY AT LAW.
“ This work owes its origin to the author's discovering, while giving instructions on the subject, that there was no other before the public suitable for giving loarners & prac tica) knowledge of Book-keeping. The plans hero unfolded have been proved by ex. perience lo be well adapied to the purposes for which they are designed. Many works give a variety of rules and tables which belong to Arithmetic. The author has confined himself to such subjects as are strictly connected with Book-keeping, and refers those who wish to obtain information on such topics, to works which discuss tho V&rious subjects with fulness and accuracy, instead of the meagre, and frequently inaccurate slacements given in treatises on Book-keeping."- Author's Preface.
From Montgomery Paterson, Esq., Accountant, New York.
"I have examined the work with great care. It is written on a plan very different from that of other treatises, and conforins to the method actually followed by good practical Book-keepersa The explanations are also much more full and satisfactory.
consider it well udapted to give youth a correct and eficient knowledge of the prinoiplos of Modern Book-keeping,-a thing which cannot be said of any other troatise which I ha re ever seen."
From David Paterson, A.M., Teacher in the Male Normal School, New York.
· When I consider the numerous merits of this work, I have no hesitation in pro bouncing it the best treatise on the subject which has come under my notice; and I be lieve it requires only to be known, in order to be duly appreciated, and to meet with goneral adoption.”
From the American Journal of Education.
* We think the author has ably acquitted bimself of the task which he has undon takon, and that the publication will greatly simplify the ary and render it easier of me quisition.”
SPENCER'S NEW ENGLISH GRAMMAR.
Price 37 cts.
TO TEACHERS, SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENTS, &c.
The Publisher: desire to call renewed attention to this New Grammar. It is an original work, and not a mere compilation. It airns to teach the pupil how to use the Englis' 101.?!re correctly, and not how to “ Parse" what others have written or said. Although it has been before the public but a few months, it has received higher and more decided commendation from those competent to judge, than any other work on the same subject ever published in this country. Attention is respectfully called to the following Testimonials:
From Rev. Simcon North, D.D., President of Harv. College. “I take pleasure in saying that the work appears to me to be characterized, in a higb degree, by a philosophics and scholar-like spirit; that it is marked by great coarness and conciseness in its statement of grammatical principles; and that, in its statement and develo; neni of the whole subjecl, I believe it to be admirabiy, adapied io the wants of students in this diparimeal of learning."
From Rt. Rer..fionzo Potter, D.D.
“It contains valuable matter not usually found in Elementary Grainmars; it stales principli's with great clearness and brevity; it givo, io a greater extent than is com. mon, the reasons 0:1 which the rules are founded, and its arra::gement of iopics strikes me as just and happy.”
From Fion. Alfred Conkling. “ You book appears to me to furnish indubitable evidence of an acquaintance with its subject at once comprehensive and mute. You have a-st ned the character, not of a rash innovator, but of a discreet reformer. I cannot bat believe that you have ob tained a firm and tenable tvol-livld in advarice of your predecessors."
From Rcy. J. II. Ncllvaine.
"I do not hesitate to say, that your work upon English Grammar is the bost I hare cver seen. No scholar should be without it.
I find benefit to myself ovey time I look into it."
From Prof. S. B. Woolworth; Principal of Cortland Academy. “I have determined to introduce it as a text-book in this Institution. This is the highest coinmendation that I can give to any book.”
Tirom J. T. Clawi, Esq., Principal of Lyons Union School, "It will supply a place, hitherto vacant, among the text-books essential to tho study of the English language."
