THE GEOGRAPHY OF THE HEAVENS, and Class B OF ASTRONOMY, accompanied by a Celestial Atlas. By Elijah H. B ritt, A. M. Third Edition, with an Introduction by Thomas Di LL. D., author of the Christian Philosopher, &c. From the Reo. T. H. GALLAUDET, late Principal of the Asylum for the D

and Dumb, Hartford, Conn. The simple object of the work is, to form a Class Book, which shall to the starry heavens, what Geography is to the earth.

The Atlas, which contains six maps, is so arranged as to furnis! very valuable substitute for a Celestial Globe, and, in some respects be superior to it. It is much cheaper. It gives a faithful portraiturd the heavens for every day in the year, and does not require to be rectif for that purpose like a Globe. Nearly all the problems that are pecul to the Globe, and a great number beside, can be solved by it. It can put into the han of each member of a class at the same time, bu Globe cannot be. There are other advantages, also, which are enun rated in the preface of the work.

The book bears ample testimony to the talents and ingenuity of t author, and shows that he possesses that philosophical spirit of patient vestigation, and analysis, which are so important in the execution of su a work. It is, as a whole, evidently the result of great labor, and in poetical extracts, and mythological illustrations, highly creditable to i good taste and correct moral feeling of the author. It is, indeed, w adapted for the object; and while the abundance of its instructive, well as entertaining matter, will make it a standard work for those w may desire to become adepts in this noble science, it can easily be acco modated, by judicious selections, to the younger classes in schools, or such as may have less time to devote to the subject.

JUST PUBLISHED, A NEW INTRODUCTION to the science of ALGEBRA, design for students in Colleges, and the higher Schools, and Academies. I Silas TOTTEN, M. A., Professor of Mathematics and Natural Philosoph Washington College

The examples in this work are so selected, as to illustrate, most full the rules to which they are applied, and so arranged as to form a seri of progressive exercises, rendering the passages from the more simple the most complicated algebraic operations, as easy as possible, and pr paring the student, by making him familiar with the practical part algebra, to enter with advantage upon the higher branches of math matical science.

Throughout the whole, the reasoning is adapted to the progress of th student. It is hoped, that while it meets the wants of students who ar commencing an extensive course of mathematics, it will be particularl useful to those who have less leisure for study, or who, on account of the particular profession or occupation in life, are desirous only of obtainin a knowledge of the more practical and useful parts of mathematica science.
