OPINIONS OF THE PRESS,
This Work, a TENTH Edition of which is now presented to the public, 10,000
copies having been exhausted since its first appearance, has been very much
improved and enlarged by the addition of a more extended and clear detail of
general principles, as also by the insertion of several new and highly
interesting cases. The book, as has been already stated, is the result of
very ample and daily increasing experience in a class of diseases, which,
for some unaccountable reason, have been either altogether overlooked, or
treated almost with indifference, by the ordinary medical practitioner. We
feel no hesitation in saying, that there is no member of society by whom the
book will not be found useful, whether such persons hold the relation of a
Parent, a Preceptor, or a Clergyman. - Sun Evening Paper.
The rage for books in all departments of science, literature, and the arts,
was, we believe, never so prevalent as at the present time. The unavoidable
consequence of this is, that we meet a very considerable proportion of
indifferent, useless, and even bad books. With the force of this prejudice
on our minds, we with no little reluctance were induced to peruse Messrs.
Curtis's work, entitled MANHOOD. The scientific views taken by the authors
of the source and origin of many of the most distressing effects of certain
depraved habits, fully establish their claim to the character of experienced
and judicious surgeons. The result of our careful perusal of the work, has
been to impress us with a thorough confidence in the talent and skill of the
authors, and to satisfy us that those entrusted with the care of youth are
not a little indebted to them for furnishing them with a means of preventing
some of the most frightful maladies to which flesh is heir. - Old England.
Messrs. Curtis's work entitled MANHOOD, is one of the few books now coming
before the public on such a subject which can lay claim to the character of
being strictly professional, at the same time that it is fully intelligible,
to all who read it. The moral and medical precepts given in it, render it
invaluable. - Magnet.
This is a work that we fear there exists too much need for, to cause us to
hesitate to recommend it for general perusal. Every branch of those
frightful maladies, whether the result of immoral habits or secret vices, is
here succinctly treated, and divested of all medical technicality ; plain
and easy directions are given for the best mode to be pursued in all cases,
however complicated or apparently hopeless. To the married as well as the
unmarried, this little work alike affords consolation and cure in peculiar
cases, and we are doing a service to society in recommending it to general
notice. - Essex and Herts Mercury.

A.D. 1720, 1721, for
Assurance of Houses and Goods from Fire,
Assurances of Lives
To Grant and Purchase Annuities
with Participation in Profits.
Two-thirds of the nett profit which shall appear to have separately accrued
on British and Irish Insurances, effected on and after the 1st day of
January, 1842, for the whole term of Life, will be apportioned, septennially,
among those Policies of each class, respectively, then subsisting, on which
at least Three Annual Premiums shall have been paid.
This Bonus will be applied, according to the option of the persons effecting
the Insurance, in either of the following modes, viz.:-
1. By addition to the sum to be paid by the Company, at the extinction off
the Life Assured.
2. By an equivalent reduction in the Premiums payable by the assured,
subsequent to the septennial investigation.
The Fund available for such Bones will be charged with only a moderate share
of the expenses of management, and the Large Participation of Profits,
enjoyed by the Assured, will involve them in no Liability in the nature of
Partnership, or of charge for guarantee of capital. The Capital Stock of the
Corporation, its long experience, and the prudent management of its
financial resources, afford the strongest guarantee, that the important
objects of Life Insurance will be fully realized by those for whose ultimate
benefit they may be intended.
The Public will, accordingly, perceive, that those who effect Life Insurance
with this Corporation will enjoy the combined advantages of undeniable
security, and Profit without Liability.
Fire Insurance continued to be effected as heretofore.

The Third Septennial Bonus has been declared and communicated by circular to
the Assured. Policies effected and in force through an Agent in Ireland, for
the Seven Years ending at Christmas, 1837, on an average, have additions
amounting to nearly seven per cent. on the sum assured, being a return of
from 20 to 26 per cent. (according to the age) on the Premiums paid.
The next valuation will be made at Christmas, 1844, and Policies effected
before that date, will participate in proportion to the time they may have
been in force.
Policies may also be effected for the whole term of life, by a limited
number of yearly payments.
Assurances are now effected by this Company, except in special cases, at the

and sold in London by Houlston and Stoneman, H. Washbourne, etc.; Edinburgh
; J. Menzies ; Liverpool ; G. Philip, and all booksellers.
Principals of Schools, etc., approving of any of the following works, and
anxious to introduce them for the advancement of their pupils, will oblige
by communicating with the Publisher, who will be happy to make such
arrangements as will be to their interest, and perfectly satisfactory to
parents, etc., who frequently complain of the expense of new School Books.
Psalms of David (First Twelve) in Hebrew with an improved Latin Translation,
and Pronunciation according to the vowel points, with an extensive Praxis.
To which is appended a Hebrew Grammar, by the Rev. W. Baillie, LL.D. Svo.
cloth, pp. 264, 14s.
This work is admitted to be the best ever published on the subject and
includes many of the modern improvements of Gesenius and others, not to be
found in "Bythner's Lyra." An easy Hebrew Grammar is added, which
renders the study of this language comparatively simple. From the general
complaint of their being numerous errors in some editions of "Bythner's
Lyra," the publisher has spared no expense to render this work as
perfect in every respect as possible.

In this edition of the Eton Grammar several inaccuracies of former editions
are removed ; some of the definitions amended ; and carefully selected Notes
have been added to the declentions, etc. For the Latin rules of the Eton,
the excellent syntax of Ruddiman, with additions, has been substituted - the
conciseness and judicious arrangement of which have justly procured for it a
preference in most classical schools.
School and College Virgil, by R. Galbraith, H. Owgan, H. Edwards, G. B.
Wheeler, etc., etc., Containing the Bucolics, Georgics, and Aeneids,
complete, with Copious English Notes. Selected from all the ancient and

literal translation opposite the French. Second part, containing a selection
of interesting and amusing Stories, with a more elegant translation, and
giving directions where the consonant is to be carried on to the next vowel,
where e is silent, and the vowels long or short - difficulties
insurmountable to beginners. By Desire Pontet, Ex-professor of Modern
Languages, at the Ecole Royale des Mines de Paris, and author of several
works on Education. 18mo., 1s.
By The Same Author.
French Teacher, (second series,) or, L'Echo Des Salons, containing upwards
of 5,000 familiar Phrases used daily in polite conversation, and a
Dictionary at the end of more than 4,000 words (with pronunciation based on
English sounds) with directions where the consonant is to be carried on to
the next vowel, where e is silent, and the vowel short or long, etc.
12mo., bound, 3s. 6d.
"Knowledge of French is as necessary to every educated Englishman as
his native tongue. There is no 'royal road' to learning French, and the only
way to be really bilingual, is to learn French according to the method laid
down in this publication - by the free and perfect use of the colloquial
idiom. It is the best 'French Treatise' we have yet seen. In a dictionary
appended to the work, the Author has superadded the pronunciation of all the
French words based on English sounds. This is a great advantage to the
learner, and a great improvement on the old system, which based the
pronunciation on French sounds, with which the English pupil must be
unacquainted. We earnestly recommend this work on the above account, as well
as the care with which vulgar expressions, not used in good society, are
excluded." - Court Gazette.
In the Press, a Key to
L'Echo Des Salons ; or, Translating English into French at Sight made Easy,
with a Dictionary of all the Words in the work, Grammatical Observations,

Young's Pronouncing and Etymological Spelling Book, adapted for Junior and
Senior Classes, to the purposes of Liberal Education, in which the
Principles of Pronunciation are gradually developed, and the Greek, Latin,
and French roots of several thousand words added, together with Etymological
Exercises, Critical Observations, etc. By Townsend Young, LL.D. The first
Part, containing 120 pages, price, 1s., bound, or the two parts bound
together, 1s. 6d.
"We strongly recommend all persons engaged in teaching to see this
work, as we feel confident they will approve of it, and, by their using it,
tend to the advancement of youth, and their own reputation, as it is
unquestionable the best spelling book published." - Statesman.
" This indeed is the production of a polite and accomplished scholar,
and is perhaps the first of the kind which has ever been presented to the
juvenile world by an author of research and judgment. Dr. Young has
established the highest claims to these qualifications, in this useful aid
to the most essential part of elementary education. Every page displays his
deep and thorough knowledge of the language, and we are convinced that no
one has, since the days of Johnston and Walker, examined it more
successfully. Of the former, he is a worthy follower in the accuracy of the
interpretations, and is vastly superior to the latter in ascertaining and
simplifying the principles of correct pronunciation. It is our duty to
recommend this little volume strenuously. There is no intelligent instructor
that will not, by a moment's comparison, perceive that its predecessors are
all stamped with vulgarity or incompetence, while Dr. Young's Pronouncing
and Etymological Spelling Book manifests elegant taste, rare abilities, and
vast experience." - Warder.
" This spelling book is a great improvement on those already published.
The division of the words into syllables such as they are pronounced,
removes much of the difficulty to the learner, who, by the old division, was
obliged to spell the word in one way, and pronounce it in another. At the
end is a considerable addenda of words derived from Foreign Roots, yet so
well arranged, that the English as well as the classical pupil, will be at
no loss to comprehend them." - Dublin Library Journal.
"This is an admirable work. Instead of pointing out the particular
pronounciation of each word, by marks as mysterious as the pronounciation
itself, the author has given a series of rules, by which the learner cannot
mistake his way. Dr. Young has greatly benefited the learner and the teacher
by his admirable work." - Cork Examiner.
Gregory's Complete Course of Engineering, etc., intended as a Text-Book, for
the use of Civil Engineers, County Surveyors, Engineering Colleges, Private
Seminaries, Land Proprietors, and Agents. By John Gregory, Esq. 2 vols.
8vo., 10s. 6d. each vol.
The Hand Book of English Grammar, comprising in a concise and simple form,
the substance of all the most approved English Grammars extant, with
questions for Exercise, and copious Examples for Parsing, etc. Also an
Extensive Glossary of the principal words made use of in this Treatise,
pointing out the roots and meanings of those derived from the Hebrew, Greek,
Latin, and French Languages, with a reference to the pages where the words
first occur in the Treatise, so as to show their application more clearly,
and to supply the student with a selection of Greek and Latin terms, with
their meanings in English, that will contribute to render his future
introduction to the study of these languages comparatively easy. 18mo.,
bound, price, 1s.
" This work is, in our opinion, one of the best elementary books yet
given to the public. It comprises in a concise and most simple form, the
substance of all the most approved English grammars extant, divested of all
those difficulties which, in so many instances, present an almost
insurmountable barrier to the tyro's progree. The questions for exercise,
and the examples for parsing are most copious, and the glossary at the end
of the treatise, pointing out the roots and meanings of the several words
derived from the Hebrew, Greek, Latin, and French languages, will contribute
to render the pupil's introduction to the study of these tongues
comparatively east." - Waterford Mail.
Compendium of Modern Geography, compiled from the most approved authorities,

European Geography Made Interesting, or, the Pupil's Companion to the Map of
Europe, being the Geography of this important division, conveyed in a
pleasing form by inductive interrogation, wherein much Biographical,
Historical, and Statistical information is incidentally conveyed,
conformably with the method of teaching practised in a school eminent for
the cultivation of this popular study, interspersed with copious Notes. To
which is prefixed, Questions on General Geography. By James Gaskin. 18mo.,
cloth, 1s. 6d.
An excellent pupil's companion and manual of European Geography for schools,
and to the latter we specially recommend it. The instruction is conveyed in
the best form, viz.; the interrogative system, and the questions and answers
are lucidly arranged so as to fix the geographical facts and definitions
indelibly on the memory of the scholar. In the most unqualified sense of the
title, it is what its name imports, "Geography made interesting."
