E. A. SOPHOCLES AND PROF. BULLION :
FORMERLY TUTOR IN YALE: COLLEGE:
TO BE CAREFULLY REVISED UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE EDITOR
E. A. SO PHO C L E S.
This Reader has been extensively introduced into schools and colleges throughout the country, and its merits generally acknowledged. When thoroughly revised, it will be a work peculiarly adapted, beyond any other of the kind, to induct the student, easily and by degrees, into a knowledge of the Greek language. Its great merits will be, that the Greek selected will be mostly of the pure style of the earlier writers; that it will not be too difficult for the learner, but lead on from the simplest passages to those less easy; that the notes will be ample but concise, not distracting the attention from the text by a display of unnecessary information; that there will be, from page to page, the fullest references to those Grammars which are most generally used through the country; and that the Lexicon will be particularly adapted, by its full definitions and forms of inflection, to make the ac
quisition of the language easier to the student.
To the excellence of the former edition, many valuable testimonials have
been given, chiefly from authorities in our first Colleges. It had, however,
several defects, such as are incident to the first publication of a Classical work; and it was intended by the Author to revise the work thoroughly for new editions. This having been some time since prevented by his unfortunate and early death, the revision will go on under other but careful hands; and it is believed that this Reader will be an aid to the rapid acquisition of the Greek language far superior to any other before the community. It is de
signed that the new edition shall be made ready for publication during the winter and spring.

The reasons leading to the design of this Review are many and obvious. There has long been, and, it is feared, will be, a faction in the Republic, assuming popul forms, but led on by demagogues, against the true interests of the country. Under such gui ance they have already inflicted many injuries on the body of the Commonwealth—have crip; our commerce, reduced our manufactures, diminished our revenue, dissipated our treasure.g. ranged our currency, dishonored our schools, corrupted popular suffrage, yet strengthened E! ecutive power, diminished the hard earnings of the laborer, and placed a disastrous check ont whole course of internal improvements. In addition to these injuries, they are promulgating or giving countenance to the most dango ous doctrines: That law should have no o, or force apart from the popular will; that islation is to be no more stable than party power; that contracts and covenants of to-day m set aside by a change of majorities to-morrow; that the solemn seats of judicature, and tribunals of justice are to be directly controlled by the populace; that change, in a word, is p gress, and the antiquity of an institution hardly compatible with its utility; that crime is rail to be pitied than punished; that companies, corporations, and institutions of learning, are m nopolies to be warred against; and that in every transition of Government, to the victors belo the spoils; with many other Jabcobinical opinions, from which, if suffered to gain ground, we a look for nothing but the corruption of our morals, the degradation of our liberties, and the ai mate ruin of the Commonwealth. The party, styling themselves the Democratic, and arrogating superiority of literary to and accomplishment, have established, and for some time supported a Review, distinguished ability, but devotedly maintaining many of these pernicious doctrines, while the c
