The Life of Gen. Zachary Taylor, 12th President

TAYLOR.".-11. Montgomery, Esq., editor of the Auburn Daily Advertiser, has found leisure, amid the multitude of his engagements, to get up the most respectable looking and carefully prepared biography of the old General we have yet seen. It makes a neat volume, and is printed on excellent paper and new type, and bound in the very best style. It cannot fail to find a tromendous sale ; a result duo alike to the book itself, and the enterprise of its busy publishers. Albany Evening Journal.

“Life of GENERAL ZACHARY Taylor, by I. Montgomery," is the latest and most complete or the numerous volumes purporting to be 'Lives' of the General. The author of this work - likewise cditor of the Auburn Journal — is already known as a forcible and pleasing writer, handling his subject with a masterly hand; these characteristics are fully developed in the book before us. The stirring incidents of General Taylor's life, and the recent battles on Mexican soil are well portrayed the very fair and impartial scylo or narration being a rare quality in depicting battlo scenes. The book will repay an allentive perusal.-N. Y. Tribunc.

The Life of MAJOR GENERAL ZACHARY TAYLOR. By II. Montgomery. Another and still another “illustrated " Life of the great American, (would that he had as many lives as the publishers give him,) the American whom Carlyle would recognise as "a hero” worthy of his pen’s most eloquent recognition; THE MAN OF DUTY in an age of Self. An American in everything; in valor, in strong muscular sense ; in simplicity and directness and cordiality of seeling; an American in every thing, save in devotion to our new political God of Expediency.

The volume before us is put forth in Auburn, by tho editor of the Auburn Daily Advertiser, whose vigorous, fuent style, and skill in compressing his materials, must make his elegant volume very generally acceptable. Many of the traits ascribed to General Taylor have been assimilated by some of his admirers to the leading military characteristics of Frederick the Great. But, unlike Frederick, Taylor is anything but a martinet in discipline; and, though his movements of small bodies of troops against vast odds, are characterized by the vigorous will and iron determination of Frederick, the arbitrary disposition of the Prussian despot is wholly alien to his tolerant and candid nature. Taylor's affectionate and almost parental relation to his soldiers, perhaps, alone first suggested the parallel, as we find it binted in the following stanza of some verscs upon one of his battles, quoted by Mr Montgomery :

HOLD ZACH!" "Old ZACH!' the war cry rattles

Among those men of iron tread,
As rung 'Old Fritz' in Europe's battles
When thus his host Great Frederick lod."

The American Lady's System of Cookery, com

prising every variety of information for ordinary and Holiday occasions. By Mrs. T. J. CROWEN. The "American System of Cookery" is a capital book of its class, and for which we bespeak the good word of all thriny housekeepers. It introduces us into a wil. derness of sweets, where no rude surfeií reigns! The almost innumerablo variety of good things, clearly and orderly set forth, is most apotizing for the hungry reader, just before dinner.

Here is an American housewife, sensible and thristy, who has laid down directions for making all sorts of dishes, baking all kinds of cakes and pies, manufacturing every variety of confectionery, preserving, pickling, &c., 80 plainly that a housekeeper of a week's slanding can easily act upon her directions, and yet taken so comprehensivo a scope, that the very best and most skilsul will find something new. We tako for granted, that as the latest, it is the best book of its class.

The writer of this volume has previously published a similar work, on a smaller scale-"Every Lady's Book"-of which more than two hundred thousand copies are said to have been sold. If this is not popularity, we know not what is.-Literary World,

The "American System of Cookery," is the title of a goodly sized duodecimo, pub. lished in New York. The authoress of this work has obtained considerable celebrity, by a work which she entitled “Every Lady's Book," and we believe she will add to her deserved credit by the present volume, which comes home to the stomach of every man. The receipts arë abundant and practical.-North American.

Of all the reforms, none is more loudly called for than one in American Cookery, that being one in which everybody is interested. That the national health would bo better, if the national kitchen were more philosophically and phyorologically mana. ged, there seems to be no doubt anywhere. Even morale suffer, beyond question, through the influence of crude, ill-selected aliment. Who knows but the Mexican war may be traced to an ill-cooked, ill-assorted, contradictory, and irritaling cabinet dinner ?

A Lady of New York tells us how to make a great many nice, wholesome things, and we beg our readers not to imagine we speak rashly, or even theoretically, upon this all-important Bubject-we havo tasted, and we testify without a misgiving. 'tho proof of the pudding," elc.-Union Magazine.

Thus our wife settles the question. The same author's “Every Lady's Book," she said, might bo uscsul for some folks, but the real simon pure, Yankeo, American Cook Book, was the thing exactly, just such a book as she should have made, is sho had cooked it up hersell. She says is inade on common sense principles; the rules are exactly such as sensible folks tolain 10 this deinocratic land, who regard tasto, health, and economy. Our wife *tivala with some Cook Books, one has to deduci half the spice, shortning and mar. Our work, however, as our wise declares, is practicable, and is to be follows to the letter. Tantil Washingtonian News.

This book is compiled 97% person of practical knowledge of the subject, who, as stated in the preface, luki been for the last eight years emu, oveu in collecting inform mation on the subject file work, and in reducing to practice he receipls obtained. -Evening Post.

By the spiciness of ine preface, and by the very funny epistle with wnich diio authoress of ihis ooox sends us a copy, we cannot doubt her io be a woman s lacet; and as Mrs. Ctilid was applied her genins to the making of such a book, we can ne: lieve even a V30:1:Book may be better for genius in the writer.- Home Journ:).

WITR A BRIEP

TREATISE ON POLITICAL ECONOMY.

BY ANDREW W. YOUNG.

TWENTIETH EDITION.

The subjects embraced in the above entitled work, arom

1. The Principles of Government, in which are illustrated the nature, objects, and fundamental principles of Civil Government and Laws.

II. The Government of the United States, comprising the Constitution, with a brief commentary, showing the nature and design of his several provisions, as expressed by the framers; and an abstract or the laws for carrying into eflect the powers of tho goneral Government, and organizing its several departments.

III. The Civil Jurisprudence of the United States, being an epitome of the common law of the country, prescribing the rights, dulies and responsibilities of citizens in the domestic and social rolations.

IV. Political or Public Economy, in which tho clementary principlos of this scionco are familiarly explainod.

V. The Constitution of the Slalo of Now York, adopted Novombor 3d, 1846.

While the interests of Education are deservedly receiving much altention, it is not a lillle remarkable that the Science of Government has hitherto been so generally nog. lected.

A knowledge of our Constitutional and Civil Jurisprudence can scarcely bo too high. ly estimated. The very idea of freo government, pre-supposes the knowledge, without Ii people cannot know how to govern. The eleccivo franchise is valuablo only as it is exercised intelligently.

Questions or public policy, not merely affecting the common interests of our country, but involving constitutional principles and even liberty itself, are not unfrequently do cided at the ballot box. Yet multitudes of our citizens presume to exercise tho prerogative of srcemen without knowing what the duties and responsibilliies of freeinen are. The poll lists of our State are annually swelled by thousands of new volers, who have never given the Constitution so much as a single reading! Can our liberties be sale in such hands ? Can parents reconcile it with a sense of duty to turn their sons upon a community thus unprepared for the great business of self-government ?

YOUNG'S SCIENCE OF GOVERNMENT.

From the Buffalo Com. Advertiser. Wo should unjustly undervalue the intelligence conferred under our present school. system, if we supposed this book is written in a style beyond the easy comprehension of those who have enjoyed the benefits of such an education; and we contidently ro. commend it for the use of schools and families as a work of excellent objects, well ro. alized in the performance. It may be perused with advantage by nearly all persons, not excepting such Washington letter writers, politicians, and newspaper writers as deem themselves amendable to sound reasoning and common sense.

From his Ex. Wilson Shannon, Governor of the State of Ohio. I have examined with some care, Mr. Young's “ Introduction to the Science of Gov. erament," and approve both of the matter and manner of arrangement. It is a work containing a great deal of highly useful and important information, and its introduction into our common schools cannoi fail to be attended with good rusulis. Such a work is greatly needed at this timo in our common schools. It is with grout pleasuru I recommead it to the patronugo and favorable consideration of tho public.

WILSON SIIANNON

From the London (Eng.) Telegraph. INTRODUOTION TO TUB SCIENCE OF GOVERNMENT–By Andrew W. Young,

Bufalo, United States. A digest of American Law, compiled for the use of Schools. Its study hy the youth of the United States is a remarkable indication or the social revolution that is being worked out in the other hemisphere. Our law students, at the termination of their ar. ticles, would consider such a class book, adapted to the circumstances of the English constitution, as invaluable ; and we cannot give a better idea of this introduction to the science of political economy, than to compare it to a condensed edition of " Black. Blono's Cominentaries" for the use of Schools.

From Thomas I. Biggs, D. D., President of Cincinnati College. I have examined with some considerable care, Mr. Young's “ Introduction to the Science of Government," &c.; and, without disparagement of any kindred work, I think it due to this production to say ihat, in my opinion, it has peculiar claims upon public attention. The author has certainly accomplished his design to furnish a work to be hoth a class-book for seminaries of learning and for domestic instruction. The plan of the work and the arrangement of topics, evinces a clear and comprehensive view of his whole subject.. The style is plain, familiar, and perspicuous, his expobitions of the various iechnical terms and phrasos employed in the work, are intelligible and instructive. I wish the work success.

THOMAS I. BIGGS. From C. P. McIldaine, Bishop of the State of Ohio. The work by Andrew W. Young, entitled "Introduction to the Science of Governmont,” &c., I have had a brief opportunity of examining. It is intelligently and perspicuously written. The interpretation of Constitutional law seems to me to be just. A studious effort is manisest to inake all its instructions plain to readers of youthful minds, as well as those of limited education. Such a book is very desirablo in this country, and I have pleasure in recoinmending this as culculated to do good.

CIAS. P. McILVAINE.

The above are but few of the many valuable recommendations the “Scicnce of Government” has already received. It is therefore unnecessary to give more--let it suffice that the Book is all that it professes to be and is in reality one of the cheapest books in the world.
