CHINA. AND THE CHINESE. By the RSV.
John LNevius, ten years a missiona
ry in China.. With a map and illustra
tions. 'Published by Harper 8: Bros.,
Historical- facts are embodied• in this
work that will surprise most of its read
ers. Olk as this country is, and familiar
as , we arc with it, in some respects,
tew are aware of the 'Wealth, pro
gress and culture it has attained
a s a nation. We have regarded
China altogether at too low a scale, as a
nation,from the revelations of its greatness
and grandeur here made known. The
wealth and opulence of that vast region,
and of its wonderful inventions, are gradu
ally unfolding. ' The history' of this peo
ple is a study for the civilized world, and
we are only beginning to find out its real
greatness. History shows that China
took its rise coeval with the Pyramids,
and standing as one has well said, "a
hiiman pyramid, apparently indestructi
, the ravages of time." How the
Chinese have been able to prolong their
national life, while the Egyptians, Chal
deans and. Abyssinians have been buried
in the dust of years, is a problem.. Mr.
Nevins' book embraces a general descrip
tion of the country and its inhabitants;
its civilization and form of government;
its intercourse with other nations, and its
present condition and prospects. It is
unlike books made np from -a hurried
visit to a few leading cities or glances at
the outside of society,but the result of years
of patient observation and intercourse with
the People while laboring among them as
a missionary. The numerous illustra
tions help to a better understanding of the
DEEP DOWN. A Tale of the , Cornish
Mines. By R. 'l. Ballantine, author of
"The Life Boat," "Fighting the
Flames," etc., with illustrations. Pah
- lished by J. B. Lippincott it Co., Phila
delphia. For sale by R. S. Davis, Pitta
Much stress usually is laid upon the
plot and characters of a story, but this
ato*.iii only founded on facts, and gives
graphic and touching incidents-connected
with-mining life. Scenes of a picturesque
charader are -depicted in life-like lan
guage, indeed, the work glows with the
animated style of the author. Phases of so
ciety are narrated,too, with a coloring both
natural and striking. Moral lessons also
crop out in the story, which illustrate the
power of Divine grace,over the evil asso
ciations which run riot in such places.
The story from beginning to end is one
of unflagging interest.

ECONOMY BUTTER CO.
ask the attention of all Interested In the reduc
tion of the extravagant cost of Butter, to their
practical and economical system of making pure
prime Butter by the aid of the
EXTRACT OF BUTTER PLANT.
A. brief allusion to the origin of this imr ortant
discovet y May not prove uninteresting• Among'
the anthent'cated recordssif the renowned Cap
tain Cook's voyage around the world, is found
the statement, that while sojourning fora short
time on the Brazilian Coast of South America, he
observed the natives using, in the preparation of
their food, a Dedullar oil. which, upon examma-
Bon. he found to possess the appearance, taste
and flavor of Butter; upon farther inquiry, how
he ascertained that it was simply a sub
stance that the natives distilled
. in a crude and
imperfect manner, from a rich and luxuriant
plant that grew spontaneously and abundantly la
that warm tropical country. A few 3 ears ago, ' '
an eminent French chemist, while on a profes
sional visit to the tropics, made numerous exper
iments wit's this remarkable production of na- .
ture, and•succeeded In extracting a concentrated
essence of the plant. The formula for its prepa
ration, and the Sole Right Her its sale In this
country are theexclasive property of this Com
pany, by 'whom it was purchased from the orial
nal discoverer. We claim for this remarkable,
yet,simple and perfeetlybarmlesi preparation
lts.-That by its use a net gain of from 50 to 200 •
per cent. is made in the manufacture of Butter.
21d.-That Butter, which from age or whatever
cause, may be strong, rancid, streaked or,
coarse-grained, and comparatively useless for •
general use, by the aid of this Extract, is re
stored to its original freshness and sweetness,
fine-grain, and even color.
3d.-By the use of this Extract, one pound of
delicious, afresh Butter . is actually made from
one pint of milk.
4th.-That a pure and excellent table Butter can
be made, at a cost of from 15 to 20 c nts per
pound. The chief expense wherein being But
ter, which is the essential base.
Bth.-That Butter manulacture'd by the aid of
this Extract is equaLln every respect to the best
Butter made by the ordinary method.
Oth.- Tne Extract after thorough analysis, by
able chemists, is pronounced perfectly free from
any deleterious substance, the ingredients be
ing purely of a vegetable nature.
Sth.-In proof of ,he foregoing assertions, the
factory of this company is making one ton of
Butter per day, Which meets. with ready sale
in the New 'York Mrrket,„ and is consumed from
the tables of the ant 'Hotels', Restaurants and
Private families in this city and elsewhere.
A sample package of the Extract (sufficient to
make 50 lbs. of Butter( with hill directions for e.
use, will be sent to anv address on receipt of $l.

t to spurted' imitations, we would specially
caution the public against co unterfelts and worth
