THE STAGE-COACH; Being No. 16 of the “Temperance Tales." It contains seven different stories, all founded on fact, and makes a volume of 288 pages.

" It contains seven distinct tales, supposed to be narrated by different individuals, collected in a stage-coach, founded upon incidents in their respective lives. The volume displays that tact for narratives of thai nature, which the author has heretofore displayed."-Christian Intelligencer.

The stories in this volume are all interesting and affecting, especially the last one. The principle set forth in these tales, of total abstinence from all intoxicating drinks, is very forcibly shown to be the only safe one. Mr. Sargent is so well known as one of the most powerful writers of the present day on the subject, and his former Tales have been so extensively circulated and read, that no further praise of the present volume is required of us. We advise every one who has a family to purchase and study it, and instil its doctrines into the hearts of big children; and we know of nothing more useful as a gift than the five volumes comprising the series of the Temperance Tales." -Salem Register.

A very attractive volume of incidents and reflections, humorous, moral and instructive, impressing, in a variety of forms, practical lessoas of temperance. It cannot be too universally read.”-Daily Advocate.

" It is written with much power, and some passages are deeply affecting. It will be read with auch interest by all who feel a desire to check the demon of intenperance in his destroying career."-Mercantile Journal.

“Every tale exhibits the graphic powers of the distinguished writer, and is calculated to deepen the public impression of the necessity and worth of the temperance reformation. The volume cannot fail to have an extensive sale.”—Journal Am. Temp. Union.

“There is no need of expending words to recommend this series of publications. The thou. sands and teus of thousands of them already in circulation will prepare the way for this, and we trust many others from the fertile pen of their benevolent author."-Am. Traveller.

THE CONTRAST;

OR MODES OF EDUCATION. BY THE AUTHOR OF “THREE EXPERIMENTS OF LIVING,” “ELINOR FULTON," AND "RICH

ENOUGH.' “ The style is as engaging as the sentiments are worthy of commendation. The sketches of character, and the pictures of domestic life, are drawn with great fidelity, vividness and spirit. The author may not inaptly be termed the Edgeworth of America."-Boston Daily Atlas.

« The Contrast is indeed finely drawn. The principal characters are true to the life. The instruction conveyed is thoroughly good, and such as has the sanction of the wirest of mon, speaking by the inspiration of God. The Bible is made the basis of good education,' and its results aro vividly portrayed in the family of Mrs. Colman; while the folly of what is often though incorrectly termed education, is fairly exposed in the families of Mrs. Stanley and Mrs. Wilson. It is an excellent book of the kind."- Boston Recorder.

“ It is a most instructive little work, and ought to be in the possession of every family. We took it up to examine it a few moments, but could not persuade ourself to lay it down until we had read the last pago.”-Olive Branch.

“ It does not encourage that fashionable education which is gradually undermining, every where, the human constitution, and reducing our race to a condition which the ape and the parrot need not envy, but an education which makes us healthy and happy, as well as learned and reputable. In short, it is just such a work as we wish to see widely circulated and extensively read, and its principles universally followed.”—Library of Health.

“The contrast between the conscientious Christian mother and the fashionably educated lady, between the results of judicious and injudicious education, as delineated by the authoress of the Three Experiments, we have traced with delightful interest, and most cordially recommend to our three thousand subscribers and ten thousand readers. The tale is as interesting as the moral is excellent.”Morning Post.

“ This is the fourth publication of one of our most useful writers. We have been extremely pleased with the two pictures.”—Christian Register.

ADVOCATE OF PEACE.

No. v.

JUNE, 1838.

SECOND VOLUME.

The first volume of this work was started last year under circumstances extremely unfavorable. The sudden death of Mr. Watson, the publisher of the American Advocate of Peace, at that time the organ of our Society, imposed on us the necessity of issuing our own periodical; and we were obliged to commence it without funds, subscribers, or pledged contributors to its pages, amidst all the discouragements arising from the pecuniary troubles of the year.

The result, however, has disappointed our fears, and exceeded our highest hopes. Although we printed 2,000 copies, a large edition for such a work at its outset, they are all distributed, for the most part, among those who have paid for them; our present list of subscribers will oblige us to increase the number of copies; and we hope the growing demand for light on this subject will double, if not quadruple them before the close of the year. The work has not only sustained, in the estimation of good judges both at home and abroad, the high literary character of its predecessor, but become a more popular and effective 'advocate of peace' by the greater variety, point and brevity of its articles; and we hope to increase its attractions to every class of readers by the communications expected from the ablest friends of peace in the land, some of whom are preëminent in the republic of letters. We have not yet a full list of expected contributors; but we
