"A good book is the best friend; the same to-day and forever."

Applegate & Co., in addition to a large and varied assortment of School, Classical, Theological, and Miscellaneous Books, which they have constantly on hand, publish a series of valuable Standard Works, suitable for the family circle, as well as public libraries.

At this time, when the press teems so abundantly with ephemeral literature, the thinking mind experiences a need of more substantial aliment; of something which shall at the same time furnish not only enjoyment for the present, but for after thought; something on which the mind shall delight to ponder in its communings with itself; something, from the perusal of which one can arise a wiser, if not a better man; and among their publications, they flatter themselves such books will be found. It is their aim to select such works, the intrinsic worth of which will cause them to be sought after by enlightened and discriminating minds, and as worthy of gracing the shelves of their libraries.

Among their publications may be found the following, 'to which they would respectfully invite attention. To these it is their intention to add the best works of the Standard Historical and other authors, and they trust that their selections will be such as to entitle them to a liberal share of the patronage of the book-buying public.

ROLLIN'S ANCIENT HISTORY; 2 vols, royal 8vo, sheep-spring back. Illustrated with Maps and Portraits. The Ancient History of the Carthaginians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Medes, Persians, Grecians, and Macedonians, including a History of the Arts and Sciences of the Ancients; with a Life of the Author.

This invaluable work has ever maintained the first rank of Standard Ancient History. This edition is in a very handsome Library Style, and at a price that will enable all to enrich their libraries with it.

Applegate & Co.'s New Publications.

COMPLETE WORKS OF THOS. DICK, LL. D.; 2 vols, royal 8vo, sheepspring back, marbled edges. Illustrated with numerous Engravings and a Portrait of the Author; comprising the following eleven works:

AN ESSAY ON THE IMPROVEMENT OF SOCIETY-THE PHILOSOPHY OF A FUTURE STATE -THE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION-THE MENTAL ILLUMINATION AND MORAL I PROVEMENT OF MANKIND-AN ESSAY ON THE SIN AND EVILS OF COVETOUSNESS— THE CHRISTIAN PHILOSOPHER; OR SCIENCE AND RELIGION-CELESTIAL SCENERYSIDEREAL HEAVENS, PLANETS, &c.-THE PRACTICAL ASTRONOMER-THE SOLAR SYSTEM; ITS WONDERS-THE ATMOSPHERE AND ATMOSPHERICAL PHENOMENA, &c. The works of Dr. Dick are so well known and appreciated, (being such as should be in the possession of every family and made the daily study of its members, old and young), that the attempt to praise them would be like gilding fine gold.

It has been the endeavor of the publishers to get up this edition in a style worthy of their merit; and they flatter themselves that they have succeeded in so doing, as to paper, typography, and binding of the work, neither of which can be surpassed at the East or West.

THE COMPLETE WORKS OF JOSEPHUS; I vol., royal 8vo. The Writings of Josephus are among the most valuable publications. On account of their connection with sacred events, they are particularly interesting, not only to the ordinary reader of the Bible, but also to the student of History.

No family, or reader of History, should be without the Works of Josephus. In the publication of this edition, it has been our design so to combine cheapness and durability, as to bring it within the reach of every family.

MACAULAY'S HISTORY OF ENGLAND; royal 8vo, library edition. The History of England, from the accession of James II. By THOMAS BABINGTON MACAULAY. 2 vols, library edition.

No history in the English language has ever before been sought after and read with greater avidity than the History of England by Macaulay, the first of living authors. It is indispensable for any one who wishes to possess a reputation for ordinary intelligence, to be in a degree familiar with Old England's tumultuous, and we may say, glorious history! The distinguished reputation of Macaulay in the world of letters renders any commendation of his works unnecessary. There are many reasons that render the present work one of peculiar interest to the American reader; not the least of which is the manner in which Penn, Washington, and others associated with the early history of our Continent, are spoken of.

CHRISTIANITY, as exemplified in the Conduct of its Sincere Professors. By Rev. Wм. SECKER. 1 vol., 12 mo.

We would recommend this book to the attention of Christians generally, as one replete with sterling thought, and an admirable help to self-examination, being full of illustrations, and well calculated to assist Christians in "Redeeming the time," and maturing their graces.

THE YOUNG LADIES' COMPANION. 1 vol., 12mo.

"This work is designed to occupy an important place in the Christian education of young ladies. It is a Companion, alike for the study, the boudoir, and the closet. The refinement and delicacy with which it touches on those minute details of female manners, so essential to the character of woman; its judicious suggestions upon the intellectual and practical parts of education; and, altogether, its healthy religious tone, commend it to those who desire to see in the hands of the young females of our country a work at once attractive and instructive."

LYONS'S ENGLISH GRAMMAR.

This is a neat School Grammar, tastefully arranged, and admirably adapted to the convenience of both teacher and pupil The science is forcibly illustrated by a great variety of examples and exercises, and the style is easy, flowing, and perspicuous.
