“It is unquestionably the most powerful and important, is not the most charming
work that has yet flowed from her elegant pen; and though evidently founded
upon the all-absorbing subjects of slavery and abolitionism, the genius and skill
of the fair author have developed new views of golden argument, and dang
around the whole such a halo of pathos, interest, and beauty as to render it every
way worthy the author of‘Linda,""Rena,''Marcus Warland,' and the numerous
other literary gems from the same author." - American Courier.

“We have seldom been more charmed by the porusal of a novel; and we de. sire to commend it to our readers in the strongest words of praise that our vocabulary affords. • * . The incidents are well varied; the scenes beautifully described; and the interest admirably kept up. But the moral of the book is its highest merit. The Planter's Northern Bride' should be as welcome as the dove of peace to every fireside in the Union. It cannot be read without a moistening of the eyes, a sofiening of the heart, and a mitigation of sectional and most unchristian prejudices." - N. Y. Mirror.

CIRCULAR.

PARRY & MCMILLAN (successors to A. Hart, late Carey & Hart,) respectfully announce to the Trade that they have succeeded Mr. Hart in the Publishing and General Bookselling Business, at the old stand, S. E. corner of Fourth and Chestnut Streets, having purchased his entire Miscellaneous Stock, together with a large portion of his Stereotype Plates, at the sale on the 8th inst., to which they purpose making such additions of Standard, Popular, and Scientific Works, as will secure the attention of the Trade. P. & McM. hope, by strict attention, to merit a continuance of that patronage and confidence so deservedly bestowed on their predecessor.

J. PARRY,
JAMES MCMILLAN.

In retiring from business, I beg to return my sincere thanks to the Booksellers for their uniform courtesy and kindness extended to me during a period of twenty-five years, and take great pleasure in recommending my successors (Messrs. PARRY & McMILLAN) to the confidence of the Trade, feeling satisfied that their transactions will be conducted with the strictest principles of honor and integrity. Mr. Parry has served me long and faithfully, having been in my employ for the last eighteen years, and of course is fully acquainted with the business. Mr. McMillan has also been long engaged in the Bookselling business, formerly in the West, and for the past nine years in St. John, N. B., where his name stands pre-eminent.

Both parties bring a sufficient amount of capital into the business, which is a guarantee for the faithful performance of their contracts.

A. HART, LATE CAREY & HART. PHILADELPHIA, March 9, 1854.
