WHEELER & WILSON'S Medal Family Sewing Machine.
The wide-spread reputation of this Machine is eminently due to its peculiar merits, which are acknowledged by the best judges to surpass all others in the requisites for family use. It has become a domestic institution, and is justly looked upon as a household economy. In all the finer qualities of family sewing, on silk, linen, cotton, and broadcloth, in hemming, stitching, quilting, gathering, and all the innumerable ends to which female needlework is applied, the

confessedly occupies a position of pre-eminence. Those who have not hitherto availed themselves of the advantages of this machine are invited to examine its operation, and obtain specimens of its work, at the sales-room.
In order to place it within the reach of all, it is now offered at REDUCED PRICES, and a new style at FIFTY DOLLARS.

WORCESTER'S QUARTO DICTIONARY.
READY IN SEPTEMBER. We have the pleasure to announce that Worcester's Quarto Dictionary is now rapidly approaching completion, and we hope to publish it in September next. It will be comprised in about eighteen hundred pages, and will contain a full vocabulary of the words now used in Literature, Art, and Science, together with such local and obsolete terms as would be likely to be met with in writings that are now much read.
In Orthography this work will represent the best usage both in this country and in England.
The Pronunciation of all the words will be exhibited by a system of notation which will be easily understood ; and with regard to words of various, doubtful, or disputed pronunciation, the best authorities for the different modes will be given.
In the department of Etymology this Dictionary will be found to be more complete and satisfactory than any other work of the kind, giving, in a brief form, the results of the investigations of the best writers on this subject.
The Definitions will be fully and accurately discriminated and distinguished by numbers, and exemplified, whenever practicable, by citations from the best authors. In the selecti aim has been to take such as should be valuable also for the thought or sentiment they express, so that this Dictionary will present, in a convenient form for reference, a rich collection of the maxims and gems of the language.
The treatment of Synonymes will form a very valuable feature of the work. Very few, even of the best speakers and writers, become so thoroughly masters of their native language as never to experience embarrassinent in discriminating between several expressions nearly related. It is to help in overcoming this difficulty that Dr. Worcester has prepared, in connection with those words which seem most to require it, a notice of the synonymous terms, showing, at a glance, the distinctions to be observed in choosing among them.
The Grammatical Forms and Inflections of Words will be given more fully than ever before in any English Dictionary, and brief critical notes on the orthography, the pronunciation, the grammatical form and construction, and on the peculiar technical, local, provincial, and American use of words will be found scattered throughout the volume.
The Illustrations by wood-cuts, of which there will be about twelve hundred, beautifully executed, will form another novel and useful feature of this Dictionary. There are many terms the verbal erplanation of which, however carefully made, will convey a much less correct idea of their meaning than a pictorial representation, and accordingly it is proposed to adopt this method of exemplifying the definitions in all such cases as seem to require it.
, at a glance, the distich.scem most to
Miscellaneous Subjects. Much important and useful matter will be given in the Introduction on the following subjects: The Principles of Pronunciation ; Orthography; English Grammar; the Origin, Formation, and Etymology of the English Language; Archaisms, Provincialisms, and Americanisms ; and the His. tory of English Lexicography; with a notice of English Orthoepists, and a Catalogue of English Dictionaries of the rarious Arts and Sciences, Encyclopædias, &c.
In an Appendix will be added Walker's Key to the Pronunciation of Classical and Scripture Proper Names, much enlarged and improved ; a Pronouncing Vocabulary of Modern Geographical Names; a Collection of Phrases and Quotations from Foreign Languages; Abbreviations used in Writing and Printing, &c.
We propose to publish a Library Edition for subscribers. It will be printed on extra fine paper, with large margin, as per specimen copy, which may be seen at our counting-room,
** The price will be $ 7.50, which will be the retail price of the common edition. Persons subscribing will therefore secure the library edition at the same price that they would be obliged to pay for the common edition after its publication.
To all who want an accurate, comprehensive, and complete Dictionary of the English Language, we say, Wait and Get the Best.
