WALKER, WISE, & CO.,
The Altar at Kome.
This is not a new edition of the admirable “First Series,” but an entirely NEW WORK, containing about one hundred and fifty
by some thirty of our most esteemed clergymen, with ample and appropriate
introducing the Service of each day.
1 vol. 16mo. 75 cents, or in bevelled boards, $1.00.
The Providence Journal remarks, that “the work, both in thought and expression, as well as in typography, will commend itself to the devout as a valuable help at the family altar.”
The Saturday Gazette says: “ The present volume seems to meet the requirement of every family where devotional exercises aro used, and we cannot doubt but such a book on the parlor table of every house in the city would exercise a beneficial influence. The tone of the volume is healthy, as it inculcales enlarged and encouraging views of the Christian religion.”
The Christian Register says : “ The selections, whether of prose or verse, are made with taste, and the prayers are brief, simple, chaste, reverential, and tender.”
The Monthly Religious Magazine believes “ this volume will prove more useful and more successful, if possible, than its predecessor. The Selections add much to the value of the book, the mechanical execution of which is all that could be asked for the purpose."
“We are pleased with the book, - its tone, its method, its detail, - wbile the mechanical execution of the work is faultless.” – New Covenant, Chicago.

The Augusta Age pronounces it" a capital story."
The Banner of Light declares, “« The Master' is certainly a success, and we congratulate the fair authoress on her achievement."
The Hartford Press says: “The story charms by its simplicity and purity of tone."
The Saturday Gazette speaks of it as "a pleasant, well-written tale, has a good plot, and some well-drawn characters."
The Portland Transcript considers Mrs. Denison “not only a very agreeable writer, but a woman of extraordinary power."
The Chicago New Covenant says : “There is a fascination, a purity and elevation about the whole book, and all its characters, which charm and hold one to the end. The story ends well, and one rises from its perusal with a happy impression."

The American Annual Cyclopædia,
REGISTER OF IMPORTANT EVENTS
OF THE YEAR 1861, Embracing Political, Civil, Military, and Social Affairs; Pub
lic Documents, Biography, Statistics, Commerce, Finance, Literature, Science, Agriculture, and Mechanical Industry.
THE events and consequences of Civil War, especially in a nation having the
, a ,
as to induce us to commence the publication of an annual volume, or Cyclopædia, containing a truthful record of these occurrences, the contemporaneous events in other nations, and the progress made in the various branches of human knowledge.
The sources of authority from which the statements and descriptions are drawn will be the actors themselves, or their official reports. These embrace events occurring in the North and South. Prepared in such a manner as to illustrate principles and to unfold motives, it will remain for the reader to deduce his inferences, whilst the work will be confined to precise, sifted, and clearly narrated details. Thus devoid of everything like a partisan character, aiming at candor and impartiality in its representations, a just appreciation of the extent and effects of the present unprecedented political troubles will be within the reach of all intelligent readers.
But while events, whether triumphs or disasters, have so absorbed public attention throughout the year, still commerce has not been idle, science has not tarried in her progress, nor has mechanical industry been entirely paralyzed. The fruits of the former and the discoveries and improvements of the latter have been too valuable and too useful to be overlooked. They form now no less a part of this enterprise than the accounts of the overthrow of states, with their usual scenes of carnage and blood. But if they occupy less space in this first volume, as they do likewise, for the moment, attract less of public attention, it is because the life of the nation, the sacredness of the memories of the past, and the hopeful anticipations of the future all hang upon the political and military events now transpiring.
The form of a Cyclopædia has been selected, as affording room for the greatest variety of details, without becoming too minute and tedious. The work is already in an advanced stage of preparation, and will be issued as early in the year as its proper completion will permit. The volume will be in the style of the New American Cyclopædia, having not less than 750 pages, royal 8vo.
The work will be published exclusively by subscription, and in exterior appearance will be at once elegant and substantial.
Prices and Styles of Binding.
Payable on delivery. In Half Russia, extra, $4.50, And to insure a uniform price and regularity in the delivery of the volume to subscribers in all parts of the country, local agents will be appointed in all the cities and principal towns in the States and Territories.
Oriters may be addressed to us, or to any of our agents, for the above or any of our Subscription Works, and will meet prompt attention. D. APPLETON & CO., Publishers,
