Prayer and Sermon, by John Potts, Pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Trenton, New Jersey; July 10, 1825. Taken in short hand. By Marcus T. C. Gould, Stenographer. Philadelphia. 8vo.

pp. 22.

AMERICAN EDITIONS OF FOREIGN WORKS. Reports of Cases argued and determined in the English Courts of Common Law. Edited By Thomas Sergeant and John C. Lowber, Esqrs. of the Philadelphia Bar. Vols. 4 & 9. 8vo. Philadelphia. P. H. Nicklin.

A Letter addressed to the King, by Thomas Thrush, on resigning his Commission as a Captain in the Royal Navy, on the Ground of the Unlawfulness of War. From the London Edition. 8vo. pp. 24. Cambridge. Hilliard & Metcalf.

This pamphlet is sensible without any pretension to being able. It contains, too, a superabundance of apologies to the King, for the liberty assumed in addressing him. These are very proper in their place, but they are certainly less interesting to us, and we tbink less calculated to subserve the cause of peace, than would have been a clearer statement of the argument which induced this worthy captain to resign.

Stories selected from the History of England, from the Conquest to the Revolution. For Children. Hartford. J. Huntington Jr. 1825. 18mo. pp. 144.

In the preface to the American edition of this valuable little volume, it is stated that its anthor is John Wilson CROCKER, Esq. secretary to the Admiralty Board in England. We state this fact merely to show, that a gentleman of distinguished attainments has thought it worth while to prepare a child's book; and we would express in this connexion the hope, that others may be induced to do the same in our own country. Speaking of the difficulty of supplying suitable stories for children, at the age when they begin to be most inquisitive, the author observes, “ I have found that fictions lead to inquires, which it is not easy to satisfy. Supernatural fictions, such as fairy tales, vitiate the young taste, and disgust it from its more substantial nourishment; while the fictions of common life, such as histories of Jenny and Tommy, dolls and tops, &c. though very useful lessons, have not enough of the marvellous to arrest the attention to a degree necessary for amusement.” In order to make his stories attractive and yet to avoid the evils above named, the author has selected some of the most interesting persons, facts, and events in the history of England, and described them in the most simple manner possible ; indeed his language seldom rises above the “mere nursery style." While the stories, therefore, are adapted to the comprehension of children, and have all the interest of highly wrought fictions, they are nevertheless literal facts; and we have no doubt, simple as they are, tbat the child, who has his feelings interested by the perusal of them, will, at any future period of his life, read the bistory of England with some of that peculiar satisfaction, which we always feel, when we find facts and the experience of age agreeing with and confirming the impressions of childbood and youth.
