The Premiums, nevertheless, are on the most moderate scale, and only a moiety need be paid for the first five years, where the Insurance is for life.
The amount of bonuses added to policies, since the commencement of the Company, in March, 1834, to the 31st December, 1840, is as follows :-

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.
Messrs. Curtis and Company, are to be consulted daily at their residence, No. 7 Frith Street, Soho Square, London.
Country patients are requested to be as minute as possible in the detail of their cases ; the communication must be accompanied by the usual consultation fee of 1, and in all cases the most inviolable secrecy may be relied on.

Assurance of Houses and Goods from Fire,
and for
Assurances of Lives
Empowered also,
To Grant and Purchase Annuities
Life Assurances,
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.
Tables of Rates and all other information, may be obtained by application to the Company, or to its appointed Agents.

Capital, One Million Two Hundred Thousand Pounds
Life Department
Persons assured for the whole term of life, for 100 and upwards, will have an addition made to their Policies every Seventh Year, or an equivalent reduction will be made in the future payments of Premium, at the option of the assured.
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.
Fire Department
Assurances are now effected by this Company, except in special cases, at the following rates, viz.:- for risks of the First Class, 1s. 6d. per cent.; Second Class, 2s. 6d. per cent.; and for the Third Class, 4s. 6d. per cent.
On all Policies for 300 and upwards, continuing in force for Five Years, the Assured will be entitled to participate in the Surplus Premiums to be ascertained at that period.
In addition to the benefit of the Returns, this Company offers to Assurers the advantage of an allowance for the loss of rent of buildings rendered untenantable by Fire.

This Office, which has now been established One Hundred and Thirty-four Years, and the First in the Empire for quantity of business done, Insures against loss by Fire, all descriptions of Buildings and their contents, the Premiums charged are as low as the long experience of the office has found to be compatible with the nature of the Risks, and a prompt and liberal adjustment of losses.
The Rates have lately been much reduced, and are now on Common Risks, 1s. 6d. per cent.; Hazardous Risks, 2s. 6d. per cent.; and Doubly Hazardous Risks, 4s. 6d. per cent. Since the Reduction of Rates, Twenty-three Offices, chiefly those lately established, have discontinued Insuring against Fire.
Persons insured in this Office are not liable for any calls to make good losses.
To show the high estimation in which the Sun Fire Office is held in England and Scotland, the Stamp Office Official Returns are referred to. Copies of which may be had on application to the Agent.

Published by S. J. Machen,
28 Westmoreland Street, and 6 D'Olier Street, Dublin.
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.
Darley's (Rev. J. R.) Grecian Drama, being a Treatise on the Dramatic Literature of the Greeks, Svo., cloth, 12s.
Darley's (Rev. J. R.) Treatise on Homer, with Miscellaneous Questions, etc. 12 mo., cloth, 5s.
King's (Rev. L. W.) Elements of the Greek Language, comprehending the Principles and Definitions of Universal Grammar, with a Copious Syntax, etc., 12mo., bound, 2s. 6d.
Eton Latin Grammar, Revised and Corrected by R. Galbraith, T.C.D., Editor of the School Virgil, etc., a new edition, 12mo., bound, 1s. 6d.
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 modern commentators.
Now Ready, Part 1, containing the Bucolics and Georgics, Illustrated by English Notes, partly from previous commentators and partly original ; with Prologomena, by H. Owgan, Ex-scholar T.C.D., etc., Revised by G. B. Wheeler, Ex-scholar T.C.D., etc.
French Teacher, (first series,) being an easy Word or Phrase Book, with 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, etc.
General Tables of the French Verbs, regular and irregular, by which the formation of any tense or person enquired may be immediately found. 12mp., cloth, neatly coloured, price, 2s. 6d.
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, and peculiarly adapted to the capacities of children. By the Rev. Edward Groves. Fourth Edition, considerably enlarged and improved, by the introduction of the latest Geographical discoveries. In 18mo., price, 6d.
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." - Court Gazette.
