"ARNOID'S GREEK AND LATIN SERIES.-The publication of this valuable collection of classical school books may be regarded as the presage of better things in respect to the mode of teaching and acquiring languages. Heretofore boys have been condemned to the drudgery of going over Latin and Greek Grammar without the remotest conception of the value of what they were learning, and every day becoming more and more disgusted with the dry and unmeaning task; but now, by Mr. Arnold's admirable method-substantially the same with that o Ollendorff-the moment they take up the study of Latin or Greek, they begin to learn sentences to acquire ideas, to see how the Romans and Greeks expressed themselves, how their mode of expression differed from ours, and by degrees they lay up a stock of knowledge which is utterly astonishing to those who have dragged on month after month in the old-fashioned, dry, and tedious way of learning languages.
"Mr. Arnold, in fact, has had the good sense to adopt the system of nature. A child lear his own language by imitating what he hears, and constantly repeating it till it is fastened in the memory; in the same way Mr. A. puts the pupil immediately to work a: Exercises in Latin and Greek, involving the elementary principles of the language-words are supplied--the mode of putting them together is told the pupil-he is shown how the ancients expressed their ideas; and the, by repeating these things again and again-iterum iterumque--the docile pupil has them indelibly impressed upon his memory and rooted in his understanding.
"The American Editor is a thorough classical scholar, and has been a practical teacher for years in this city. He has devoted the utmost care to a complete revision of Mr. Arnold's works, has corrected several errors of inadvertence or otherwise, has rearranged and improved various matters in the early volumes of the series, and has attended most diligently to the accurate prin ing and mechanical execution of the whole. We anticipate most confidently the speedy adoption of these works in our schools and colleges."
Arnold's Scries of Classical Works has attained a circulation almost unparalleled, being Introduced into nearly all the Colleges and leading Educational Institutions in the United States

The publishers believe that, in the edition of Livy herewith announced, a want is supplied which has been universally felt; there being previous to this no American edition furnished with the requisite apparatus for the successful prosecution of the study of this Latin author.
OPINIONS OF CLASSICAL PROFESSORS.
From Professor Kingsley, of Yale College.
I have not yet been able to read the whole of your work, but have examined it enough to be satisfied that it is judiciously prepared, and well adapted to the purpose intended. We use it for the present year, in connection with the edition that has been used for several years. Most of the class, however, have procured your edition; and it is probable that next year it will be used by all."
From Professor Tyler, of Amherst College.
"The notes seem to me to be prepared with much care, learning, and taste; the grammatica! illustrations are unusually full, faithful, and able. The book has been used by our Freshinan Class, and will I doubt not come into general use in our colleges.
From Professor Packard, of Bowdoin College.
"I have recommended your edition to our Freshman Class. I have no doubt that your labors will give a new impulse to the study of this charming classic.
From Professor Anderson, of Waterville College.
"A careful examination of several portions of your work has convinced me that, for the use of students it is altogether superior to any edition of Livy with which I am acquainted. Among its excellences you will rmit me to name, the close attention given to particles-to the subjunctive mood-the constant references to the grammars-the discrimination of words nearly synonymous, and the care in giving the localities mentioned in the text. The book will be nere after used in our college."
From Professor Johnson, of New-York University. ·
"I can at present only say that your edition pleases me much. I shall give it to one of my classes next week. I am prepared to find it just what was wanted."
WITH ENGLISH NOTES, CRITICAL AND EXPLANATORY.
BY J. L. LINCOLN,
Professor of Latin in Brown University.
The text of this edition is chiefly that of Orelli; and the Notes, besides embodying whatever is valuable in the most recent and approved German editions of Horace, contain the results of the Editor's studies and experience as a College Professor, which he has been gathering and maturing for several years with a view to publication. It has been the aim of both the Publishers and the Editor to make this edition in all respects suitable to the wants of American schools and colleges.

ENTERED, according to Act of Congress, in the year 1851, by
D. APPLETON & COMPANY,
In the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the United States for the Southern District of New-York.
THE text of this edition of Horace is that of Orelli, as it exists in his second edition, published in two successive volumes in 1843 and 1844; the comparatively few readings of Orelli, which have not been adopted, are given at the foot of the page, with his name attached to them. As will be seen, the most important various readings are also given in foot-notes; a plan which, it is believed, will, so far as it has been well executed, meet with the approbation of scholars and teachers.
In preparing the Notes, I have derived invaluable aid from the edition of Orelli, already mentioned, and from the excellent work of Dillenburger, in many respects a model of a school edition of a classical author, published first in 1843, and, in a revised form, in 1848. These editions I have had constantly before me, and have freely consulted; and the obligations I am conscious of owing them are so great and various, that I cannot specify them in detail, and can adequately state them only by a general acknowledgment. At the same time, it is not improper to say, that what I have gained from these editors, I have not appropriated by mere translation or compilation, but have so modified and changed by independ ent examination and study, that I deem myself entitled to consider it, in some sense at least, my own; and, moreover,
