2 : THE . . .
ANTIQUITIES OF THE WEST:
THE editor and publisher of “Cist's Advertiser,” at the instance of his friends and subscribers, nearly a year since issued a volume compiled of various historical and statistical sketches, which made their appearance originally in his columns. Of these but a small edition was sold, the editor's other engagements not permitting him the opportunity of offering it personally to his subscribers and others.
A new volume is now presented, which, like the former, comprehends many valuable records, both of the past and the present, which will derive still higher interst in the lapse of time, and as subjects of reference in future years.
There is no individual in Cincinnati, expecting to make it his permanent residence, whose gratification and interest it will not be to preserve the information thus afforded, as a means of retracing the past, and thus affording him a source of rich enjoyment in the decline of life, when such gratifications have become few and faint.
