J. MURPHY'S RECENT PUBLICATIONS.

THE PROSE AND POETICAL WRITINGS OF THE MILFORD BARD.

Illustrated with several fine Engravings. 1 vol. 12mo. Cloth, gilt edges,..1 50 This work is very handsomely gotton up in the publisher's usual style of precision and elegance. The frontispiece is a neat engraved likeness of the “ MILFORD BARD,” while several other embellishments are found in the body of the work. The contents are exceedingly interesting, and of a high order in a literary point of view. We have read several of the articles both in prose and poetry, and found them always instructive, and sometimes delightful and thrilling. This publication, apart from its superior mechanical execution and intrinsic merits, has a peculiar claim upon the public in view of the interesting position of its author, and we should therefore be glad to hear of its meeting with prompt and general patronage.

Lut. Observer. Who that has ever read the touching essay of the author on the sufferings of our Saviour, or any of his most humorous poems, exhibiting at once the elasticity and versatility of his mind and talents, would be without the whole of such a writer's productions, when offered at so cheap a rate.

N. 0. Crescent. “The poetical and prose writings of John Lofland, M.D., the Milford Bard, containing moral, sentimental, humorous and patriotic poems and essays." Who has not heard of the Milford Bard, and his erratic course, like a comet. In this volume he appears at rest, in his culminations, and with concentrated light, diffuses his rays. The volume is a pretty one, will be read with pleasure, and on the whole will make a very pretty Christmas present.

Balt. Clipper. WASHINGTON THE MODEL OF CHARACTER FOR AMERICAN YOUTH,

32mo, fancy paper,......................................................13 This is the title of a very neatly executed small work, peculiarly adapted for the perusal of youth. It is an address delivered to the boys of the public schools, by the Rev. J. N. M’JILTON, A. M., Chairman Central High School of Baltimore, and it is worthy of general circulation; as such we cheerfully recommend it. The aim of the author in preparing this address was its usefulness, and we doubt not every boy into whose hands it inay tall will be improved by its perusal. In the language of the writer, “the model which is here presented in the illustrious WASHINGTON will be found to contain what is excellent and valuable in character,” and worthy the emulation of our youth. .

N. Y. Truth Teller. LOVE AND MATRIMONY. A LETTER TO A BETROTHED Sister. By a

Lady of Ballimore. 32mo. fancy paper, gilt edges,........................25 Although this is a little work, it contains much sensible advice, conveyed in brief, but strong Janguage; and being from a sister to a sister, it is written in the style of the purest affection. We may add, that the typographical execution is very beautiful, the publisher having spared no pains in the getting of it up. It is very suitable for a present.

Lut. Observer. BIBLE QUADRUPEDS. THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE ANIMALS MENTIONED

IN SCRIPTURE. Illustrated with 16 splendid Engravings. A new and beautiful

edition. 16mo. embossed cloth,....................................... 75 THE SAME. Gilt edges,...................................................100

This little work is got up in a style of neatness which, exclusive of its merits, cannot fail to recommend it to the notice of families. It is a book which ought to be put into the hands of the rising generation--containing, as it does, much useful information.

FENELON ON THE EDUCATION OF A DAUGHTER.

This little work, from the pen of the illustrious Fenelon, Archbishop of Cambray, is now, for the first time, presented io the American public. Like all the other productions of that distinguished Prelate, his " EDUCATION OF A DAUGHTER,” addressed to Christian parents, on the vital subject of the education of youth, has been universally admired for the excellence and wisdom of its instructions, the beauty of its maxims, and the intrinsic worth of its counsels. The name of Fenelon will, no doubt, be a sufficient recommendation to introduce it to the favorable notice of all who feel an interest in the virtue and happiness of the youthful and innocent portion of the community. To assist in promoting that happiness, and preserving that innocence and virtue, in the hearts of children, is the principal motive of the present publication, and hence it is confidently hoped that parents and Teachers will give it a favorable reception.

CATHOLIC TALES. NEW AMERICAN CATHOLIO NOVEL. PAULINE SEWARD, A Tale Of Real Life. By John D. BRYANT, Esq.

2 volumes, 12mo, embossed cloth, gilt, ................................ 30 THE SAME. Embossed cloth, gilt edges, .......

.........2 00 This work unites in an eminent degree pleasing incidents with useful instruction. Through a story well conceived and ably sustained, the author has infused the teachings of the Catholic church in a manner eminently calculated to correct the errors and prejudices with which her adversaries would obscure her practices and doctrines. The author of this work is a convert to Catholicity; and knowing, from his past experience and associations, what are the principal difficulties with Protestants in relation to our religion, he has sought to apply the instructive portions of his work to their explanation and removal. In this he has not been less happy than in the story itself. The work has only to be read to be admired-and no Catholic should be without a copy.

No branch of Catholic literature has been so little attended to as that of which the present work is destined to form one of the brightest gems. It is written in the most chaste and beautiful style. The interest thrown around the tale is singularly happy and intense.

Cath. Her. If not the brightest gem in the Catholic literature of this country, the story of Pauline Seward is certainly unsurpassed by any effort of the kind heretofore made on this side of the Atlantic.

This work is intended to be a refutation of Father Clement; and as the author has been signally successful in accomplishing his design, the circulation of this work is well worthy the zeal of those who bave at heart the honor and propagation of the true faith. The work is well worthy the commendations which the press has every where bestowed upon it; and we do not hesitate to welcome it among the productions which are to be the most popular and influential means of removing anti-Catholic prejudice, and leading the Protestant mind to the discovery and acknowledgment of truth. The present edition has been carefully revised, corrected and improved throughout. MOORE'S TRAVELS OF AN IRISH GENTLEMAN IN SEARCH OF A
