DR. ARNOLD'S WORKS.
THE HISTORY OF ROME,
FROM THE EARLIEST PERIOD.
BY THOMAS ARNOLD, D. D,
Late Head Master of Rugby School, and Regius Professor of History in the University of Oxford. The three volumes of the last London edition REPRINTED ENTIRE in two handsome 8vo. volumes. Price $5. The History of Rome will remain to the latest age of the world, the most attractive, the most useful and the most elevating subject of human contemplation. It must ever form the basis of a liberal and enlightened education and present the most important object to the contemplation of the statesman. It is remarkable that until the appearance of Dr. Arnold's volumes no history (excepting "Niebuhr's," whose style is often obscure,) of this wonderful people existed, commensurate either to their dignity, their importance, or their intimate connection with modern institutions. Dr. Arnold's History of Rome has long since been admitted, by the most eminent scholars, to excel all others.

With an address before Confirmation.
BY THOMAS ARNOLD, D. D.
One neat volume, 16mo. Price 75 cts.
These discourses are part of the series of didactic morality with which the renowned author enlightened and guided the large number of youth who were placed under his care, during their academic course, prior to their admission into the Brit sh Universities. Although they naturally are directed to the existing state of education in the Anglican endowed schools, and to the condition of the students in them; yet the author's far-reaching views, high-toned morality, and monitions respecting the adequate and right improvement of their privileges are of universal application; and with few exceptions are similarly adapted, ceteris paribus, to the higher classes in our grammar schools, and the various grades of collegians in our own country as in England. The volume will be highly prized by tutors and professors of every department, and will be found to be an sdifying manual to all interested in the education of youth.
LECTURES ON MODERN HISTORY:
BY THOMAS ARNOLD, D. D.
With an Introduction and Notes, by HENRY REED. Professor of English Literature in the University of Pennsylvania One handsome volume, 12mo. $1 25.
This volume contains the first lectures which were delivered by Dr. Arnold after his appointment as Reg us Professor of History in the University of Oxford. The series of Lectures must be considered merely as introductory to the expanded views and researches which the author would have developed had his life been prolonged. In the primary lecture which was delivered when he entered upon his official duty, the lecturer presented his definition of history with a summary of the duties appertaining to the professor of it. Appropriate, dignified and perspicuous, it exhibits both originality and power in a high degree, commingled with felicitous illustrations of the characteristics, effects, and value of historical literature. Four lectures follow on the study of history, rich in the prominent topics of inquiry concerning national prosperity-among which, with masterly eloquence and delineations he adverts to the political economy, the religious controversies, the national wars, and the geographical relations of countries.-The next three lectures contain a survey of European history, particularly examining the revolutions in ecclesiastical affairs, and the continuous struggles to cast off the despotic yoke, and to gain and establish religious and civil freedom.-The eighth lecture displays the nature of that historical testimony which claims and merits credence. In this disquisition the author exhibits in its truth and forcefulness the law of evidence and the method of its application in investigating historical facts. The course of lectures is an elegant memorial of the author whose unquenchable philanthropy and untiring zeal in behalf of the best interests of mankind render his decease the subject of regret to the civilized world.
MISCELLANEOUS WORKS OF THOMAS ARNOLD, D. D.,
Late Head Master at Rugby School, and Regius Professor of History in the University of Oxford.
The topics of this volume are greatly diversified; including disquisitions on the "Church," on "Church and State." in its existing British combinations-on Scriptural and Secular History and on Education, with various other subjects of Political Economy With few exceptions, the matter is of general app ication and lasting interest; and the whole is full of far-reaching perspicacity, and a burning philanthropic attachment to the accelerating progress of sterling knowledge, genuine freedom, pure religion and morality, and the best interests and permanent enjoyment of mankind. The volume of Miscellanies is a suitable counterpart to the "Life and Correspondence of Dr. Arnold ;" and scholars who have been so deeply interested in that impressive biography, will be gratified to ascertain the deliberate judgment of the Author, upon the numerous important themes which his "Miscellaneous Works" so richly and clearly announce.

The volume combines a mass of literary history and portraits of his contemporaries, with a full development of the great Oxford controversy. It is the best picture of England which can be procured--and is an essential work for all scholars and professional men who would accurately comprehend the character and actions and influence of many persons who new stand prominent in Britain, especially in connection with the Church of England and the University of Oxford, and modern literature.

V. HISTORIÆ ANTIQUÆ EPITOME, from Cornelius Nepos, Justin, &c., with English Notes, Rules for Constructing, Questions, Geographical Lists, &c.
This is a most valuable collection of Classical School Books; and its publication may be regarded as the presage of better things in respect to the mode of teaching and acquiring LanHeretofore boys have been condemned to the drudgery of going over Latin and Greek Grammar without the remotest conception of the value of what they were learning and every day becoming more and more disgusted with the dry and unmeaning task; but now by Mr. Arnold's admirable method-substantially the same with that of OLLENDORFF-the moment they take up the study of Latin or Greek, they begin to learn sentences, to acquire ideas, to see how the Romans and Greeks expressed themselves, how their mode of expression differed from ours, and degrees they lay up a stock of knowledge which is uiterly astonishing to those who have dragged on month after month in the old-fashioned, dry, studious way of learning Languages.
Mr. Arnold, in fact, has had the good sense to adopt the system of Nature. A child learns his own language by imitating what he hears, and cons antly repeating it till it is fastened in the memory. In the same way Mr. A puts the pupil immediately to work at Exercises in Latin and Greek involving the elementary principles of the language-words are supplied-the mode of putting them toge her is told the pupil-he is shown how the Ancients expressed their ideas; and then by repeating these things again and again-iterum iterumque-the docile pupil has them indelibly impressed upon his memory and rooted in his understand ng.
The American edition comes out under the most favorable auspices. The Editor is a thorough Classical Scholar and has been a practical teacher for years in this city: he has devoted the utmost care to a complete revision of Mr. Arnold's Woks, has corrected several errors of inadvertence or otherwise, has rearranged and improved various matters in the early volumes of the series, and has attended most diligently to the accurate printing and mechanical executiva of the whole. We anticipate most confidently the speedy adoption of these works in our Schools and Colleges.
