deliberately passed upon their merits. We may, and do, sincerely regret the existing taste for fictitious writings ; but these Oriental conceptions are far less injurious, intellectually and morally, than the most of our modern Occidental romances, and are in every way incomparably superior. These stories will be read, and re-read, and admired, by the scholar, the poet, and the rustic, by old and young, as among the most fascinating and brilliant creations of the human fancy. 21. First Book in Spanish : or a Practical Introduction to the Study of the Spanish
Language. By JOSEPH SALKELD, A. M. Harper & Brothers: 1848.
This work contains full instructions in Pronunciation ; a Grammar; Exercises on the Ollendorff plan ; Reading Lessons, and a Vocabulary. It is simple and philosophical in its arrangement, and affords all the aid essential to a knowledge of the Spanish. It will no doubt tend to increase the study of the Castillian language in this country, than which none is said to be more sweet, elegant, and expressive. Professor Vealsquez, of Columbia College, has in course of preparation a new Dicionary of this language. These facilities will tempt many to acquire this tongue, and enrich themselves with its literature, 22. Thankfulness, a Narrative: comprising passages from the Diary of the Reo.
Allan Temple. By CHARLES B. TAYLER. Harper & Brothers : 1848.
A BOOK worth reading. It teaches good wholesome doctrine, and breathes a lovely Christian spirit. It is not a veritable history, we suppose, but the record of a man as he ought to be. It is designed to illustrate the happiness and reward of a dutiful, devoted, grateful Christian. This is done by sketching the character and history of the so-called Rev. Allan Temple. There is nothing striking, or original in it, but much that is pleasing, instructive, and promotive of a right kind of piety. 23. The British Quarterly Review-for May and August, 1848. London.
This Review, although young in years, has attained to a full maturity of stature and life. It is conducted with marked ability. There are some articles of sterling and permanent value in the two numbers now before us. We specify as specially able and good the one on “Charles Lamb, his Genius and Writings," and the criticism on Warre the author of “ Now and Then." 24. The proper Mode of Keeping the Sabbath. Being Sabbath Manual, No. 4. By
Rev. JUSTIN EDWARDS, D. D. American Tract Society.
Dr. Edwards is doing a great and effectual work in behalf of the Sabbath. The fruit of his indefatigable labors is abundant, and everywhere manifest. These little Manuals, which he has prepared on the subject, are eminently adapted to do good. They are simple, concise, straight-forward, 'Scriptural, and powerfully illustrated by facts continually occurring in the providence of God. In previous numbers, he has shown the obligation of the Sabbath as an institution not merely expressive of the will of God, but as founded on natural laws; also that God in His Word, and by His providence, has clearly designated the first day of the week as the day to be observed as the Christian Sabbath ; and finally that the Sabbath is a family institution, designed and adapted to aid par s in the holy and responsible work of training up their children for God. In the present number he considers the proper mode of its observance, applies the law of the Sabbath to the facts of real life and to all classes of men, and closes by pointing out the active duties of this holy day. This Manual ought to be in the hands of every Christian, and circulated over all the land, and the great subject which it advocates brought home with fresh interest and power, to the hearts of all who love religion and the welfare of our country and race.
