An English Illustrated Paper says as follows: Milton's " Paradise Lost” is the first great English composition which M. Doré has illustrated, and it is issued now for the first time with his designs, in a volume, the type, paper, binding, and engravings of which are all in keeping with the splendor of the greatest English epic. It is something to be able to say that the great expectations which were raised by the announcement that M. Doré had undertaken the illustration of this work, have been amply fulfilled. The sublime composition of the great English poet afforded subjects most congenial to the pencil of the great French artist. The alternation of the brilliant, sunny scenes of Paradise with the mysterious horrors of the infernal regions, enabled Doré to display that masterly power of contrast which is peculiarly his own. moral thought which the poet unfolds is realized by the artist in the immensity of space and distance which he gives in each scene where the incarnation of the moral forces is depicted in the persons of devils and the scenes of Paradise. The drawings in this work produce upon the mind, in regard to things physical, an impression similar to that which the poem produces in respect to things moral.
It too often happens that when extraordinary attention is bestowed upon the illustration of a classic, the literary department of the edition is neglected or ignored. In this respect, however, care has been taken by the publishers that this edition shall not be open to such complaint. The text is edited and annotated by the Rev. Robert Vaughan, D.D., and a life of Milton, by the same author, is prefixed to the volume. The life is written in Dr. Vaughan's usual terse, manly, vigorous style.

CAPT. MAYNE REID.
Cloth gilt, $1 50 per vel.
In presenting to the American public New Editions of these half-civilized, half-hunter, half-military adventures, which the author relates in a style so peculiarly his own, it is scarcely necessary to urge any argument in their favor. MAYNE REID is so well known and appreciated that his books have the entrée to every circle—the public library, the bachelor's sanctuin, the bunter's cabin, and the lady's boudoir--all classes welcoming that off-hand dashing style with which the author carries his reader along with him, through all sorts of perils.
*** Each of the following books contains nearly 500 pages, handsomely embellished with original designs, engraved in the highest style of the art. They are bound with the best Eng. lish cloth, and bevelled edges, and sold at the remarkably low price of $1 50 per volume. LOST LENORE; or, THE ADVENTURES OF A Rolling-STONE. THE TIGER HUNTER; or, A HERO IN SPITE OF HIMSELF. THE MAROON; or, Planter LIFE IN JAMAICA.
THE WILD HUNTRESS; or, LOVE IN THE WILDERNESS.
THE WOOD-RANGERS; or, The Trappers of Sonora.
WILD LIFE; or, ADVENTURES ON THE FRONTIER.

THE SCALP HUNTERS; or, ADVENTURES AMONG THE TRAPPERS.
THE HUNTERS' FEAST; or, CONVERSATIONS AROUND THE CAMP-FIRE.
THE WHITE CHIEF: A LEGEND OF NORTHERN MEXICO.
THE QUADROON; or, A Lover's ADVENTURE IN LOUISIANA.
These form the most interesting series of works ever published.

THE BRIDE OF LLEWELLYN.
BY MRS. EMMA D. E. N. SOUTHWORTH, AUTHOR OF "THE FORTUNE SEEKER," "THE FATAL MARRIAGE," "ALLWORTH ABBEY," "VIVJA," "RETRI. BUTION," "THE DESERTED WIFE," "THE LOST HEIRESS," “ DISCARDED DAUGHTER," " LADY OF THE ISLE," “WIFE'S VICTORY,” “HAUNTED HOMESTEAD,” “MOTHER-IN-LAW," "THE TWO SISTERS,"
"LOVE'S LABOR WON," "THREE BEAUTIES,” “CURSE OF CLIFTON,” “THE
GIPSY'S PROPHECY,” “MISSING BRIDE," "INDIA," “BRIDAL EVE,'' etc. Complete in one large duodecimo volume, uniform with "The Lost Heiress."
Price $1 50 in Paper; or, $2 in Cloth. This new work of Mrs. Southworth's will, beyond all doubt, prove to be the most popular and successful that has ever been written by her, for she is beyond all question the most powerful female writer in America, if not in the world. No one ever read a chapter of one of her works, without wishing to read the whole book, and none ever read one of her books without admiring the rare genius of its author, and wishing that she migbt soon write another. Her scenes are life-pictures, her incidents are founded on facts, and her sentiments are characterized by a singular purity both of conception and expression. She has the rare faculty of saying what she means, and of saying it in such a manner, as that her meaning cannot be misinterpreted. In short, she possesses in an eminent degree those qualifications which are the peculiar prerogatives of a good writer; and, while she delights the reader's imagination with her descriptive beauty, she applies home truths to his understanding with the force of rational conviction. The “Bride of Llewellyn” will be welcomed by all such readers especially; and those who have never read the works of this gifted woman should not fail to buy and read this new novel at once.
We have also just issued a new, uniform, and complete edition of the other popular works by Mrs. Emma D. E. N.
India; Pearl of Pearl River. The Fortune Seeker. The Discarded Daughter. Vivia; Secret of Power. The Lady of the Isle. The Haunted Homestead. The Gipsy's Prophecy. The Fatal Marriage. The Three Beauties.

Send on your orders also for any of the other works of Mrs. Southworth that you may wish. Sample copies of “The Bride of Llewellyn” will be sent at once, postage paid, on receipt of price.
