hance its practical value, but will tend to obviate some of the objections which say against it in the opinions of not a few scholars and literary men. We have not time to specify all these; but we perceive that most of the innovations upon our established orthography proposed in the earlier editions, are here abandoned. All those changes which Dr. Webster made on etymological grounds, are remored; and the most of those made on analogical grounds also. There will now be found but little difference between this system of ortbography and the standard methods; and where there is any, the arguments of analogy and reason, as well as advancing usage, are so strongly in their favor, that they will probably carry the day. The removal of objections on this score, leaves the unrivalled excellences of Dr. Webster's dictionary almost without a blemish. In the multiplicity of its words; the clearness, copiousness, and accuracy of its definitions; its reference to the sources of words, and its rational, and on the whole, excellent system of orthoëpy, render Dr. Webster's the greatest and best lexicon of our language extant.

The additions to the present edition are considerable. New words are added, where sustained by reputable usage; and, what is certainly a very great convenience, whether justifiable on lexical principles or not, all the current and important terms in the arts, sciences, and professions, have been incorporated. Prof. Goodrich has had the assistance of his very competent colleagues in Yale College, in almost every department of learning, to assist him in this particular; and the result is that it is one of the most concise and complete technological dictionaries extant At the close of the definition of each principal word, synonyms of the word have been added, which is also a great and peculiar excellence. The work is printed in a clear and open type, and will unquestionably be considered the most complete and ample dictionary in the market. 5. Louis the Fourteenth, and the Court of France in the Seventeenth Century. By Miss

PARDOE. 2 vols. 12mo.: Harper & Brothers.

Though this is but the picture of the in-door life of the period of the Grand M narque, it comes nearer to the philosophical and complete history of that brilliant era than would be supposed. The springs and sources of the great outward events, with which history busies itself, are here laid open ; and standing at the central point of the very household of the despot, who asserted with as much truth as impudence. I am the State, the whole circle of events are not only perceived, but more accurately comprehended than by a mere study of the events themselves. The Court of Louis XIV. was France itself; and the radiating point of all the splendor and brilliancy of that most eventful of all the periods of the French history. Miss Pardoe has evidently been in her element, in sketching characters, describing female intrigues and Court gossip; and the spirit and grace with which the narrative is composed adds much to the interest of even these interesting events. Those who would know the real character, as well as the memorable deeds, of this reign, and at the same time be bighly entertained with secret histories, private gossip, and personal anecdote, will find Miss Pardoe's work at once full of instruction and interest, and an admirable preparative for graver histories of the same era. The work is published in parts, in a very beautiful style, and illustrated with numerous engravings. 6. A History of Rome, from the earliest times to the Death of Commodus. By De.

LEONHARD SCHMITZ, F. R. S. E. W. H. Newman & Co.

This is an edition of a work which we commended in our last issue, and are very willing to commend again, and contains in its preface, a kind of complaint against its predecessor, which we cannot adjudicate upon. We are sure that if the merits of the work are properly appreciated, both editions will be demanded. So trustwor. thy and scholarly a work on Roman history has never before been made accessible to the student,

7. The Miscellaneous Works of Henry Mackenzie, Esq. 3d edition. Harper & Bro


So fine an edition of this admirable and graceful writer, the memory of whose gentle touches of feeling, and kindly benevolence, no reader of his can have lost, is entitled to a cordial welcome. It is rarely indeed, that his “Man of Feeling" and “ Julia Roubigné," and other sketches, have been excelled in the highest qualities of literary excellence and genuine poesy of feeling.
