THE PRINCIPLES OF MORALITY,

AND THE

PRIVATE AND POLITICAL RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS

OF MANKIND.

BY JONATHAN DYMOND. ABRIDGED, AND PROVIDED WITH QUESTIONS, FOR THE USE OF

SCHOOLS, AND YOUNG PERSONS GENERALLY.

BY CAROLINE M. KIRKLAND,

" This abridgment of the larger work of Dymond, on the Principles of Morality, is entitled to all acceptation. The original treatise has passed through several editions since its first appearance in this country, although it has not evon yet comminded a degree of attention at all proportioned to its merits, which are of the highest order. Without launching out into abstruse speculations on the grounds of more obligation, it takes its stand on the revealed will of God as the rule of practical ethics, and in a tone of earnest, but kind and winning remonstrance, rebukes the las principles and practices of the age, and summons all classes up to the high and pure standard of the Bible.

“ The author's exposure of the hollow parts of Paloy's system, is managed with the hand of a master, and no one can peruse but with admiracion bis skilful detec tion of the fallicies by which u loose casuistry often seeks to confound distinctions and pervert right.

“ Notwithstanding the admitted value of Wayland, we think Dymond decidedly preferable as a text-book for schools, and female seminaries in particular, we are persuaded, can find no work so well suited to their object. This testimony, we trust, will carry with it soine more weight, not only from the fact that it comes from one well acquainted with the work, but one who voluntarily tenders this as an unsolicited tribute to a treatise of merit ur.equalled in its line. — B.” (RET GEORGE Bush.)

From the Boston Recorder. " The abridgment of the original work of Dymond, for the use of schools, and the young generally, is a happy thought. The execution of such a purpose could not have been better done than by her who has undertaken it in this volume. It is not enough to say that we have been pleased, for we have been greatly delighted, with a labor thit has resulted in presenting to the youth of our country, in so condensed a form, and yet in so clear and nervous a scyle, the great principles of morality, as they are delineated in the gospel of Christ. The combination of philosophy with revelation is most happily effected, without the slightest violence to either, and the perfect harmony exhibited between them, clains the confidence and admiration of every intelligent reader. We speak with great assurance when we say, that the friends of humanity and religion will have occasion to rejoice, when the Principles of Morality,' devloped in the Essays of Dymond, shall find a place in all our higher schools, and it might be added, in all the family libraries of the land.” (Rev R. S. STORRS, D. D.)

From the Oneida Whig. “ This is in-truth an excellent book, and in its present form, undoubtedly the most complete and admirable compendium extant of moral and political philosophy, both theoretical and practical, founded upon the conjoint principles of right, natural reason, and the will of a Supreme Being. In its present shape, skilfully abridged and condensed as it is by our intelligent country woman, Mrs. Kirkland, it is not only a work peculiarly adapted to the use of schools and young persons, but for those of all ages, and of every standing, education, and condition of life, and will constitute a most useful and proper manual of personal and social duty in every family. - B."

FOREST LIFE.

BY THE AUTHOR OF

"A NEW HOME-WHO'LL FOLLOW?"

“ Humor, vivacity, keen discernment, graphic powers of description, and a thorough acquaintance with American foresi life, are the most striking features of these volumes. There is not a chapter from which we do not feel strongly disposed to quote.” - London Allas.

“ Miss Sedgwick must not only acknowledge a rival near her throne,' but she must make room for a sister on it. The author of that charming and widely-popular work, 'A New Home,' his followed up her successful coup d'essai in the world of literature with the volumes before us; and when we say that they fully sustain the promise of their predecessor, we say all that is necessary to secure at once the attention of our readers." - Knickerbocker.

“No less graphic, witty, kindly, sensible, and amusing a book than the predecessor, of which it is the sequel. Her voice comes to us out of the far unknown wilderness, from which she sends it forth, like the clear ringing song of a bird, issuing from the heart of a wood." - Democratic Review.

“ Delicate but genial humor, pathos, nice perception of character, and unrivallea powers of description, all unite to make her writings most attractive." - New York Commercial Advertiser

" The present work is a sort of continuation of A New Home - Who'll Follow?' and we can assure the readers of that charming work, that in · Forest Life,' they have even a richer feast spread before them than the banquet they enjoyed at her hospitable home in the far West." - New World.

“We admire her dashing style, her delineations of the homely manners, habits, and peculiarities of Western life, and commend the volumes to all the adınirers of genuine American literature.” – Merchants' Magazine.

“ These are charming volumes, written with a freshness and spirit that delight and would surprise us, were we not familiar with the first work of their author. Mrs. Kirkland has opened a new vein in our national literature. Her sketches of forest scenery and wood-craft, with all its varied details, are not less true than graphic.” - Graham's Magazine.

“ The great charm of 'A New Home' and Forest Life,' is, that they tell us just what we want to know' of that wonderful country to which half of us mean to go, while the other half, in resolving to stay at home, think of, and talk of it almost as much as the emigrants themselves. Half an hour with one of these books, is like half an hour's chat with one of our pleasant Western kinsfolk. 'Boston Miscellany.
