WILL PUBLISH IMMEDIATELY:

I.

LAMPS, PITCHERS, AND TRUMPETS. Lectures on the Vocation of the Preacher. Illustra

trated by Anecdotes, Biographical, Historical, and Elucidatory-of every order of Pulpit Eloquence, from the Great Preachers of all ages. By E. Paxton Hood. Lecturer in Spurgeon's Pastors' College. 1 volume large 12mo.

A book of remarkable interest, overrunning with anecdotes and out-of-the-way fact, and having numerous striking paswas from the greatest preachers of all ages. The style is very animated, and the subject one of universal interest. The Iloring contents of Chapter VII. (on Wit, Humor, and Coarseness in the Pulpit) will give an idea of the work :

The Function of Humor ; Singular Personal Applications ; Story of a Welch Preacher; The Devil and the Herd of Srine; The Foolish Preaching of Good Men; Robert South; The Sermon to the Fishes; The Pulpit Droll; Abbe Sancta Clara ; John Berridge ; Jacob Kruber; The Humor of Rowland Hill; Bold Tom Bradbury; The Folly of Learned Sermons; Humorous Juxtaposition of Ideas; Strange Freaks of Speech in the Pulpit.

II. UNCLE JOHN'S FLOWER GATHERERS. A Companion for the Woods and Fields. By Jane GAY FULLER. 9 beautiful illustrations. 16mo., cloth, extra gilt side and back. $1 50.

This beautiful volume has been prepared with great care, and will, it is believed, supply an acknowledged want. In an inDerating narrative is given information such as children--older ones too-well enjoy and appreciate, about plants and flowers, and how they grow and bloom.

III. PHILIP BRANTLEY'S LIFE WORK, AND HOW HE FOUND IT. 16mo. Illustrated. $1 15.

A very interesting Story, suitable for the Sunday School Library. It is a book of more than ordinary merit, and much above the average of its class.

This book being in every respect a Chicago work, and preeminently excellent in itself, challenges special attention. It is the most creditable volume Chicago has ever produced. There is nothing ephemeral or local in its value. It is exhanstire in the treatment of a subject alike interesting to the student of abstract science, and the statesman, and the business man of ea. larged views.-Chicago Journal.

Every page evinces that the author has observed extensively, and thought profoundly npon the topics of which he writes: *** We congratulate both author and publishers on the credit which this elegant, solid, and valuable book will bring to us wherever science and good book-making are respected. --Chicago Daily Post.

The style is clear, terse, and often eloquent, and the graphic descriptions of natural scenery relieve the work of the tedium of mere scientific detail.-Chicago Republican.
