It is a neat and most acceptable little work." - Courier.

Opinions of the Press. “A deeply afflicting story of guilt, and sorrow, and death — well written, and impressing strongly the salutary admonition to beware of the first beginnings of sin.

“A thrilling story, with an awful catastrophe— well told, and original.” - Ladies' Companion.
“ This is a reprint of one of the most interesting and beautiful works for the young, to be found. The publisher deserves much praise for the admirable style in which the volume is put forth. Its typography is unexceptionably neat, and the embossed muslin binding is very elegant.

“This beautiful narrative, having been for some time out of print, is now reproduced in a style, both as regards the typographical execution and the binding, which cannot fail to procure for it a lasting popularity. It is indeed the most perfect bijou of its kind that has ever yet emanated from the American press, and both the publisher and the printer are entitled to great credit, for the excellent taste they have displayed, in presenting. My Niece' to the public in an attire so excquisitely in keeping with her pretensions and intrinsic merit.” — New York Expositor.
“ This beautiful and instructive tale, which has been out of print for some years, comes before the public in a style worthy of all praise. Beautifully printed and beautifully bound, externally it resembles our best annuals, and internally a great superiority is evinced over the most of them. The instructive moral of the tale may be gathered from the author's concluding paragraph, which we extract :
“Reader, I have told thee a tale of no ordinary wo; but it has a moral in it. Whatever thou mayst be, or however situated, guard well the first avenues which lead to sin ; for if one false step be taken, thou canst not tell of how many evils it may
be the prelude.'

R. CRAICHEAD, PRINTER,
112 Fulton-st., N. Y.
Having observed with regret the imperfect manner in which the last edition of Presidents' Messages was executed, it occurred to me that a correct and handsome edition, from their commencement to William H. Harrison's inaugural address, would not be unacceptable to my fellow citizens ; believing as I do that, of all great national documents, few perhaps are more deserving permanent preservation than those which emanate directly from the head of the executive government. Their intrinsic value and importance must be coeval with our national existence ; they have respect no less to the interests of after times than to those of the present day; for while they mark the several great epochs of its political history, they at the same time afford the best exposition and clue to the right appreciation of its administrative proceedings. Apart from their public utility, these documents must ever be considered of great value, from the high rank they deservedly retain in their literary reputation, as gems of republican eloquence and rhetorical skill, exhibiting specimens of some of the purest models of style which are to be found in our language.
