of the Erperimental and Natural Sciences. The next work of this Series, a 'Manual of the Metalloids,' by JAMES APJOHN, M.D., is nearly ready. It will contain a condensed exposition of the more general doctrines of Chemistry, followed by a detailed discussion of the various elements destitute of the metallic character, and will be copiously illustrated by woodcuts. From its arrangement and plan it will be found suitable not only for students commencing the study of Chemistry, but for those also who have already made some progress in the science; and, at the same time, can scarcely fail to prove suggestive in the hands of competent teachers. The Che REVISED CODE.—Preparing for publi
cation in Six Parts, fep. 8vo., of which Parts I. and II. will be ready in a few days, “ The Grade Lesson 'Books, in Six Siandards ; each embracing Reading, * Spelling, Writing, Arithmetic, and Exercises for • Dictation. Especially adapted to meet the require'ments of the Revised Code.' By E. T. STEVENS, Associate of King's College, London; and CHARLES HIOLE, Head Master, Loughborough Collegiate School, Brixton, late Master of St. Thomas's Collegiate School, Colombo, Ceylon.
Under the Revised Code, the larger portion of the Government grant payable to Schools will depend on the results of the individual examination of the children, and it has therefore appeared to the compilers of the Grade Lesson Books;
That a carefully graduated Series of Books, suited to the several Standards, will be required ;
That Home Lessons must form a highly important adjunct to every school routine ;
That a Series, suitable not only for individual and simultaneous instruction, but also for Home and School Work, is desirable; and
That each Book should contain the three subjects of examination, and be published at such a price as shall place it within the reach of almost the poorest child.
It has been the aim of the compilers of the present Series to produce in each of their Standards a book that can be well read through by a class in about fifty days, so that each child eligible for examination may have been through it at least twice. The books, moreover, are so prepared that teachers may be sure of their Pupils passing the Inspector in all the subjects, if only they know their One Lesson Book well.
STANDARD 1. has been drawn up with great care, with a vicw to introduce the child systematically and by the easiest gradations to a complete knowledge of English Monosyllables. Two or three of the first Lessons comprise words of Two Letters, and a few common ones of Three. Then the simple Vowel Sounds are taken with single initial consonants. The words are placed in columns at the top of each page, and Lessons are formed of them-consecutive narratives, not mere disjointed sentences,-only those Words being introduced which are contained in the respective Spelling Lessons or in those preceding. A few easy Dissyllables are given advisedly, but only such as are componnded of words previonsly learnt; such as
be-fore, a-gain, a-way, at-tempt. When the simple Vowel Sounds have been gone through, the Diphthongs are treated in the same way; and when the Words which have single consonants before the Vowel Sound have been exhausted, those with Compound Initial Consonants are taken. Silent Letters and
ough' come at the end of the book, with the exception of three or four Auxiliary Verbs, which are introduced in Lesson 30, to aid in the construction of the Reading Lessons. A portion of each Reading Lesson is in script characters, to be copied by the Pupil at home or at school. The Arithmetic, like the Reading and Writing, goes rather beyond the requirements of the Standard, so as to introduce the Papil to the one above. One great advantage of this book over others is, that it contains a Spelling Book, a Reading Book, a Book of Writing copies, and an Arithmetic Book all in one, and for the price of one. In each Standard the Reading Lessons are compiled or selected with the sole object of teaching Reading as effectually and as easily as possible. A few hints are given in each Book for the benefit of Pupil Teachers and Monitors.
STANDARD II. will contain Reading Lessons, consisting of Stories, Poems, Adventures, &c., with easy Words of Two Syllables; carefully arranged columns of Spelling at the top of each page, with some hundreds of Sums in the Arithmetic required for this Standard; and the Multiplication Table.
STANDARD III. will contain Reading Lessons similar to the above, with Difficult Words of Two and easy words of more Syllables ; Columns of Spelling for each Reading Lesson; Dictation Exercises (to be copied at home and written from dictation at school) containing the Easier Words which have the same sound but differ in meaning; numerous exercises in Numeration, Notation, and the Simple Rules up to, and including, Short Division; also the Multiplication Table.
STANDARD IV. will comprise more advanced Reading Lessons similar to Standard III.; Columns of Spelling, with Meanings; Dictation Exercises as in Standard III, but containing more difficult Words; Exercises in the Compound Rules (Money); and the Pence Table.
STANDARD V, will consist of Advanced Reading Lessons, in continuation of the plan pursued in Standard IV. ; Prose and Poetry alternate, consisting of Extracts from Popular Authors; Spelling and Dictation as in Standard IV.; Arithmetic, Compound Rules (Weights and Measures); and the Tables of Weights and Measures.
STANDARD VI. will consist principally of Extracts from Newspapers, Magazines, Reviews, and other current literature; Scientific and other Terms, with Meanings; Difficult Dictation Exercises; a Section on Arithmetic-including numerous Examples of Bills of Parcels, Proportion and Practice; Explanations of Foreign Phrases and Sentences in common use; and an Alphabetical List of the Roots from which the Words in the Spelling Lessons are derived.
ANSWERS to the Arithmetical Examples will be published separately.

Under the above heads, as far as possible, the more elementary works are placed first in each division respectively, followed in a progressive order by works suitable for more advanced pupils. It is, how. ever, obviously impracticable to adhere strictly to such an order ; and almost equally so to separate books of a purely elementary character from such as are appropriate for an academic or collegiate course of studies. For this reason, a few lines of analysis have been added to almost every book of which the full title (in all cases given) does not appear to convey an adequate idea of its object, scope, and use. This feature has been found both to increase the utility and facilitate the use of this CATALOGUE to persons who consult it for practical purposes.

[May 15, 1863. A LTHOUGH there may be differences of opi
nion on the immediate causes which have produced the civil war now raging in the American States, few even of those who believe that this struggle has not been caused directly by slavery, will deny that the peculiar institution of the Southern States has been invested by this strife with a painful and grave importance. The right of holding men in slavery has been deliberately set forth by their leading statesmen as the cornerstone of their social state ; and the controversy in this country turns in some measure on the character and working of the system. While it
is' commonly asserted that the Southern States would oppose the revival of the slave-trade with all their might—that from mere motives of selfinterest the planters keep their slaves in a comfort unknown to any free peasantry, and that the slaves are uniformly contented with their lot-the Author has felt it to be her duty to state her own experiences on a slave plantation. For the narrative she vouches as a record of facts which occurred under her own personal knowledge, or which she was enabled accurately to ascertain. The estate on which she lived had a very high reputation, and the owner was regarded as one of the most humane and considerate slaveholders. Viewing the working of the system under its most favourable aspect, the Author felt that by the test here afforded the system itself must stand or fall; and the experience so gained furnishes a complete
disproof of every single assertion which has been her for the care of the sick and
in Hamburg, made to palliate or to excuse the institution of which has been the parent of many others in slavery. From the picture here drawn of the various parts of the Continent. The main object results of the system, as well on the master as on of the work is to enforce the truth contained in the slave, the English reader may be tempted to Mr. Helps's pregnant axiom, that to perform any turn away in disgust; but it remains still the work of charity efficiently, we must begin by true picture of a state of things which the Author giving a great deal of thought,-a generosity of saw with her own eyes, and which the declarations the rarest kind.' The purpose, therefore, for of Southern statesmen have invested with a fresh which a detailed account of the Hamburg Associpolitical importance.
