SPEECHES.

CALHOUN, CLAY and WEBSTER are three names which will long be venerated by American Citizens. Of the three, Calhoun, during the early part of his life, was perhaps the greatest favorite with the people. His highly cultivated mind, profound views of government, and his pure character, gave great weight and importance to his opinions with all parties. Of the writings and speeches of American statesmen, there are scarcely any which bear so directly upon the great measures adopted by our Government, during the last forty years, as those of the lamented Calhoun. The War, the Revenue System, the Currency, and States Rights, were subjects upon which he took a leading position, and greatly aided the decisions which were made on them. With those who take an interest in our national history, the value of the writings of our public men cannot be too highly estimated.

Opinions of the Press.

"Mr. Calhoun was a man of noble intellect and pure principles, and was justly ranked among the first three' American statesmen of the present century."-Boston Traveller.

"Mr. Calhoun's works form a part of the history of our country, and are necessary to be studied in order to gain a correct notion of many of the most important questions which have agitated parties among us."-Boston Daily Courier.

John C. Calhoun has been esteemed one of the greatest men in the annals of our country. The foundation of his greatness is based upon a sound and practical knowledge of government, a comprehensive view of national character, and a thorough understanding of the sources from which springs republican strength, true national greatness, and upon which depends the perpetuity of republican institutions."—Highland Eagle.

"He was a man of pure mind, heart and life; and men confided in him because they saw and felt that in him there was an absence of all duplicity. He could be trusted. He was too unselfish to knowingly mislead. He was a man of great mental activity. His mind knew no rest. Such a mind must be housed in a strong physical tenement, or it will intellectualize the body, and break it down. Mr. Calhoun had such a physical system, until age came upon him, and his vital energies lost their recuperative force."-Palladium.

"Chestnut Wood will light up many a hearth with pleasure."

CHESTNUT WOOD:

An American Cale.

BY LIELE LINDEN.

Two volumes, 12mo. Paper covers, $1 25; cloth, $1 75.

PLOT OF THE STORY.

Chestnut Wood is a country-seat, near Sleepy Hollow, owned and occupied by Mr. Atherton, a man of stern but not unkind disposition. The better feelings of his heart are brought into action, by the circumstances of his young grand-daughter, Sybil, the heroine of the tale, who is thrown, by the death of her mother at a farm-house in the vicinity, where she has been rescued from exposure on the road, upon his protection. The father of Sybil, as may be inferred from the fate of her mother, is a worthless scoundrel, who endeavors, with the help of associates as worthless as himself, to get possession of the child. They succeed in carrying her off, and concealing her in New York, where they employ her as an unconcious agent in the circulation of counterfeit money. She escapes from the wardship of an old misshapen hag, Moll, and is brought back to her home at Chestnut Wood; where, however, she is still subject to occasional manifestations from the some

source.

Opinions of the Press.

"One of the pleasantest characters in the book is Jerry Goldsmith, a Yankee Caleb Quotem, ready to turn his hand to any thing, and more profuse in promise than performance."-Churchman.

"One who has read it from preface to finis, pronounces it delightful; and hence our praise. She says there are spots that those who have tears can cry over, but never so sad that the tears need scald much."-N. Y. Daily Times.

"We commend to men, women, and even children, a perusal of 'Chestnut Wood.'" Lawrence Sentinel.

"This work will be read. It has all the elements of a successful book, viz: originality, interest, power, and strong characterization."-Berks County Press.

"It will please from its truthfulness to nature, and from the effect it will leave on the mind of the reader."-Hartford Courant.

"Its plot is well developed, is ingenious, but not too intricate, and is managed throughout with the skill of a master."-Palladium.

"The characters are very well and forcibly drawn, particularly the 'cute Yankee, Jerry Goldsmith."-Mobile Adv.
