RULE AND MISRULE OF
THE ENGLISH IN AMERICA,

By the Author of “ Sam Slick,” “ The Old Judge,” &c.

“A most attractive work.” - Standard. “ Invaluable for its accuracy and impartiality.”Herald. “ The cleverest volumes Judge Haliburton has ever produced — Messenger.

“ It is needless for us to say of any work from the pen of this eminent writer that the style is lively and entertaining, and that these volumes are amongst the most deserving works which the literature of the present year has brought forth.”-Morning Post.

“ We conceive this work to be by far the most valuable and important Jadge Haliburton has ever written. The exhaustless fund of humour-quiet, yet rich and racy, and at the same time overflowing with the milk of human kindness

-which his writings display on one hand, and the wonderful knowledge of man's character, in all its countless varieties, which they exhibit on the other, have insured for them a high, and honourable, and enduring station in English literature. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to arise from the perusal of any of Mr. Haliburton's performances without having become both wiser and better. His English in America' is, however, a production of a yet more exalted order. While teeming with interest, moral and historical, to the general reader, it may be regarded as equally constituting a philosophical study for the politician and the statesman. It will be found to dissipate many popular errors, and to let in a flood of light upon the actual origin, formation, and progress of the republic of the United States.”-Naval and Military Gazette.

EIGHT YEARS IN PALESTINE, SYRIA, AND ASIA MINOR,

FROM 1842 TO 1850. By F. A. NEALE, Esq., Late attached to the Consular Service in Syria.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. “ One of the best accounts of the country and people that has been published of late years." - Spectator.

“ A highly entertaining book, presenting a lively picture of Levantine life in all its varied aspects.”—John Bull.

* A very agreeable book. Mr. Neale is evidently quite familiar with the East, and writes in a lively, shrewd, and good-humoured manner. A great deal of information is to be found in his pages.”—Athenæum.

“ Deeply interesting volumes. We have rarely met with a work from which we have derived so much pleasure and profit.”Messenger.

“ We have derived unmingled pleasure from the perusal of these interesting volumes. Very rarely have we found a narrative of Eastern travel so truthful and just. There is no guide-book we would so strongly recommend to the traveller about to enter on a Turkish or Syrian tour as this before us. The information it affords is especially valuable, since it is brought up almost to the last moment. The narrative, too, is full of incident, and abounds in vivid pictures of Turkish and Levantine life, interspersed with well-told tales. The author commences his narrative at Gaza; visits Askalon, Jaffa and Jerusalem, Caipha and Mount Carmel, Acre, Sidon and Tyre, Beyrout, Tripoli, Antioch, Aleppo, Alexandretta, Adana, and Cyprus. Of several of these famous localities we know no more compact and clearer account than that given in these volumes. We have to thank Mr. Neale for one of the best books of travels that we have met with for a very long time.”-Literary Gazette.

“Mr. Neale's book will claim the highest rank among works of this class. His long wanderings of eight years in the regions he describes have made him thoroughly familar with localities, and with the domestic life of the population. Nothing can be more graphic than his picturesque descriptions; nothing more amusing than his sketches of native society; more piquant or more diverting than his stories, anecdotes, and adventures. He takes us out of the beaten track of tourists into the nooks and corners, as well as into the cities and towns. He tells us everything of such places as Jerusalem, Antioch, Aleppo, Beyrout; but we now go for the first time to Beilan, Nargheslik, Alexandretta, Daphne's Cataracts, &c., &c. As might be expected in the narrative of one so familiar with what he treats of, the book is replete with new and valuable information.” - United Service Magazine.
