Ctt tittiturnt ertaidtt. NEW PUBLICATIONS 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., New York. 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 ble by , 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 work. 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 bnigh. 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. 'THE CLOISTER AND THE HEARTH ; or, MAID, WIFE, AND WIDOW. A matter 'of-fact romance. By Charles Reade. Published by Fields, Osgood & Co., Boston. For sale by R. S. Davis, Pittsburgh. This is the seventh volume of the pop - ular "Household Edition" of Mr. Reade's - works, by this house. The merits of this capital edition have already been stated as being printed from clear type, white paper, and bound in nerd green clOth,and at a low rate, one dollar per volume. One more volume will coniplete the set. The character of this work is well known, and needs no commendation from us. ' OUR CHARLEY, AND WHAT TO DO WITH Him. By Mrs. H. B. Stowe. Pub- lished by J. B. Lippincott dr, Co., nal adelphia. For sale by R. S. Davis, Pittsburgh. These charming juvenile stories, like everything emanating from the pen of this talented lady, though written years ago, are interesting as well as instructive. Lessons of practical worth and 'of a high moral tone are inculcated throughout the book. Children may learn great moral truths even in little, stories, if the writer is impressed with right principles ; this is the crowning feature of Mrs. Stowe's writings. COLONEI. THORPE'S SCENES IN ARKAN SAS.: By J. M. Field, Esq., of the St. Louis'Reveiite.. With sixteen illustra tions from original designs by Darley. Published by T. B. Peterson de Bros., Philadelphia.

TRUTH AND COUNTER TRUTH. By Rev. Thomas Richey, D. D. Published by Pott Je Amery, New York. For sale by J. W. Pittock, Pittsburgh. Rev. Dr. Richey, the author of this work, was temporary ;Rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in this city. The work embraces eleven essays on doc trinal points of essential importance to 'Christians, of all religimis bodies. Brief 413 they are, they contain much valuable critical and practical thoughts. ThC friends of this divine, as well as the in quirer after truth, will welcome this pub lication. Tan AMERICAN ECCLESIASTICAL AND EDUCATIONAL ALMANAC. By Prof. A. J. Salem. Published in New York, 15 Dey street. F. Gerhard, Agent. No publication of a similar character stood so high in the estimation of relig ions journalists, as the issue of 1868, and we expect the same encomiuns will be expressed of this edition. It is brimful o facts. • We have been favored by D. APPLE vox & Co., New York, through 'Henry ?diner, with- - "Phcetuxiana; or Sketches of Burlesques." By John Pheenix. This cheap edition of Sketches and. Bur lesques will have a wide sale, on account of the fame of theauthor and the strokes of satliewhtch sparkle - throughout Its' pages. The same house send us "Wood stock" of the Waverly series. These volumes are handy and very cheap. T. B. PETERSON & BROTHERS, Philadel phia, send us ''Hans Breitaiann's Party." With other Ballads. :4 13y Charles G. Le land. The first edition of this work was very popular, and the present new and enlarged edition will doubtless increase its sale. "Schnitzerl' Philosepede" (Ve locipede) is a rich thing. The same house sends us "Twelve Months of Matrimo ny," three English volumes in one, and "Count of Monte-Christo," by Alexander Dumas. The meritiof , these publications are well known to novel readers. "Monte. Cristo" is a new edition of the famous novelist's work, which has been exten sively read. TURNER BROTHERS & Co., Philadel phia, have, placed on our table, through Miner, of this city, a copy of "Madame De Chambly," by Alexander Dumas. The fascinating style of the author is more to be commended than the story itself, at least the moral tendency of it. LITERARY 'NOTES HARPER & BROTHERB, New York, will soon issue "Quiceioli's. Recollections of Lord Byron;" '•The Dodge Club, or Italy in MDCCCLIIX.," and "Bald win's Pre•Historic Nations:" J. B.

T HE 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 ever, 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. secCAtiTION.-As articles of real merit are sub-. t to spurted' imitations, we would specially caution the public against co unterfelts and worth less imhations, advertised as powders, com pounds.
