Joree, will publish at Christmas, in 2 rols, Sro. illustrated with Plates by Lowry, Syste matic Education, or Elementary Instruction in the various Departments of Literature and Science, with Practical Rules for studying each Branch of Useful Knowledge. The important period of human life which commences when young persous are freed from the restraint of school discipline, is often ill spent, for want of some useful object of inental pursuit. The living instructor is, perhaps, not at hand to point out a course of study; and many an ioge. mous youth falls into the habit of desoltory and baneful reading, who, with proper guidance, might have formed a decided taste for the acquisition of wholesome knowledge, in the prosecution of which he might have improved his mind, and bave been preserved from frivolity and vice. In Auenced by these considerations, the Authors of Systematic Education have had it in view to supply those who are between sixteen and twenty-five years of age with such guidance. They have endeavoared to offer such elementary instruction as may afford a good preparative for future reading, and to point out the best sources of farther information on the subjects of which they treat. It has been their aim to compress within a narrow compass, a great fund of important knowledge, which could only be obtained by the perusal of a multitude of volumes; and they Aatter themselves that, on some topics, their Elements will supply materials not unworthy of the attention of the Preceptor, who may be engaged in conducting the studies of pupils some what advanced in scholastic attainments. Having thus briefly detailed the objects of their work, they respectfully submit the decision, as to its merits in point of plan and execution, to the candour of an eoligbtened public.
