The Pictorial and Illustrated editions of SHAK
SPEARE, lately published in England, are amongst
the most beautiful specimens of the recent and re
markable improvementol the art of wood engraving,
which, by combining great excellence of execution,
with economy of price, has given an unprecedented
diffusion to the most useful as well as the most ex
quisite productions of the arts of design.
The designs of Kenny Meadows for the illustra
tions of Tyas’ edition of Shakspeare, expresses the
character of the several personages, and the spirit o
the scene, with wonderful truth and power; whilst
the wood engraving of Knight’s Pictorial edition
combine with the highest merits of art and taste,
such a learned aud minute accuracy as to scenery,
costume, architecture and antiquity as to make them
a perpetual and most instructive commentary upon
the Poet’s text. It is now proposed to embody in
an American Edition, the admirable illustrations of
both these editions, engraved with equal excellence
of mechanical execution, to add to these, other en
gravings from eminent artists, as Reynolds, Fuseli,
S. Newton, Ac., and to accompany them with a beau
lifully printed and correct text.
ffiut tile publisher, anxious that his country should
pay some part of the homage due from her to the
greatest of Poets, as to otic who belongs not solely
to England, butte all
who speak the tongue
That Shakspeare spake,
Could not content himself with a mere r£publication
or compilation. He has therefore prevailed upon R.
W. Weir, whose reputation as an artist is already
identified with his country’s history, to contribute a
series of original designs, together with such advice
and assistance in other details of art as his taste may
suggest for the illustration and embellishment of
thispublication. From the same reason the publish
er, instead of reprinting the text and commentary of
any popular English impression, was desirous that
his edition should have the supervision of an Amcr
can editor. This task has been undertaken by GU
LIAN O. VERPLANCK.
The plan proposed to himself by the editor is to
furnish the reader with a carefully prepared and ar.-
ourately printed text, unencumbered by any notes
or comments upon the page itself; as however use
ful they may be elsewhere, they are too apt to divert
the mind from the power of the Poet’s thought, and
to disturb the magic of hD scene. Such notes as
may be thought useful for the explanation or criti
cism of the text, will be thrown into an Appendix to
The text of Shakspeare’s dramatic works, drawn
from old printed copies in his age, which had never
passed under the author’s own eye, was consequent
ly disfigured by many errors and obscurities. It
passed during the last century through a succession
of varying editions until the revision of Stevens and
Malime. whose lo>£t, (or radier that of SteVCJls) lISS
become the standard from which most of the e.nglish
and American editions have been printed, with vari
ous degrees of accuracy. But within the last twen
ty years a more minute and familiar acquaintance
with old English idioms, habits, and modes of
thought, guided by an intense and constantly increa
sing admiration of Shakspeare’s genius, has led to
the strong conviction that very many of the numer
ous though slight deviations from the ancient text
appearing in modern editions, are useless or errone
ous interpolations, sometimes weakening the sense
aud often substituting an arbitrary monotonous met
rical regularity to the Poet’s own native melody.—
Accordingly very many of these emendations have
been rejected by the last and best English editors,
espeofally Mr. Knight and Mr. Collier, and the rea
dings of the old folios and quartos have been resto
red, unless where some error of the press or manu
script was undeniably manifest. Vet there are ma
ny such passages confessedly corrupt, and requiring
conjectural emendation; there are also differences
of reading between the several old impressions, af
fording grounds for some diversity of text and warm
controversy between the more recent editors.
Upon these the American editor thinks it due to
the character of lias edition, to decide for himself
without implicitly follow ing the text of any one mod
ern edition. As'the industry and learning of prior
editors have furnished the collation of various read
ings and the authorities upon which they may be
supported, the task is no longer that ol laborious in
vestigation, but, as it were, of judicial decision, en
lightened by contending argument
As many of these variations are of nearly equal
probability, and as some of them arc doubtless the
author’s own alterations at different periods .all the
more important readings will be presented to the
reader in the notes for his own selection. Those
notes will also contain so much of commentary ns
may be useful to explain antiquated words andphra
ses, obscurely expressed passages, and allusions lo
obsolete opinions or the habits or history of the
times; the whole in as condensed a form as practica
ble. ‘But any commentary upon Shakspeare, how
ever brief, would be imperfect if -t did not present
some view of the higher criticism employed, not on
the interpretation of bis language, but upon his
thoughts, his character, his poetry, passions, philoso
phy. The only difficulty here arises from the abun
dance, the magnificent variety of the materials con
tributed during the last half century by the most
brilliant minds of Europe. Still it is believed that
this duty can be satisfactorily performed without
swelling the edition to an inconvenient bulk.

ltumhn existence give rise to spasmodic action in every
organ of the body ; and whether we survey it in the
agonising form ofTtc Dolereaux—the alarming con
vutskms of the Eipileplic eeinuie- o, in n,.t irritable
condition of the nerves ofthe heart occasioning nervous
palpitation—they can all frequently be traced to the
source above mentioned, and be cured by mild cvacu
ant and tonic remedies. To relieve a state of so much
suffering and distress (in which body and mind also
participate) BRANDRETH PTt.T.H are confi
dently recommended; as, by combining aromatic tonic
and cleansing properties, they remove all oppressive,
accumulations, strengthen the Stomach, induce a
healthy appetite, and impart tranquility to the nervous
system ; and in fact, by their general purifying power
upon the blood, exert a most benEflcinl influence in all
cases of disease. Read the following.
BENNINGTON, Yt. Doc. sth, 1843.
Dear Sir I wish you to add my testimony to the
host of others that you have, in faverofyourvaluablc
Pills. In the year 1839, I was attacked with that dis
agreeable complaint, the DYSPEPSIA, which si
affected me that I could not take the least particle of
food, without the most unpleasant and un«oinfonahl«
sensations in my chest, head and bowels. My dies,
was so sore that I could not bear the slightest pre.
sure without giving me pain. My health was most
miserable ; many physicians told me they thought
was in the consumption, aud that if I did not give up
my business, and change climate.l could live but a
I tried every thing in the shape of medicine, and
consulted the most skilfnl physicians, but found no
permanent relief. I became discouraged, gloomy,
sad, and sick of life; and, probably, ere this should
have been in my grave, had I not fell in with your
precious medicine. A friend of mine, whohad been
sick of the same complaint, advised me to try your
pills ; but,jhaving tried most of the medicines without
obtaining any relief, had but little faith that your
Pills would he of benefit to me ; but, at his earnest
soficitfltions, I procured a box and commenced taking
them. The'first box produced little or no effect, and
I began to despond, for fear that your medicine
would prove like others I have taken; but my friends
argued that one was not alair trial, and I purchased
a second, and before I.had taken the w hole box be
gan to experience a change : the pain in my chest
becan to be less painful, and my food did not disfres
me as ouch as formerly. I wrnton taking them un
til I had taken six boxes, and my DYSPEPSIA
was GONE, and my expectation of an early death
vanished, and I felt like a “ new creature.” 1 wr*
then, and am now, a healthy man. I have never
since been troubled with the DYSPEPSIA. I
have administered your Pills to the members of my
family, and to my friends, and in all rases with good
success; You ran publish if it will be of any use to

one ofits trying ordeals. Self denial, concession, and
die spirit of harmony, governed and controlled the
agents appointed to select candidates for the Presiden
cy and Vice Presidency. Individual preferences were
given up, personal atatchments surrendered, long
cherished hopes abandoned, every thing conceded but
principle, in order to secure unanimity and harmony
of action. Patriotic devotion to principles enabled
them to select men, “ without fear and without re
proach”—talented, honest, capable—faithful to the
Constitution, and faithful to the best interests of the
country. The people have every where hailed the
nominations with enthusiastic approval. The Repub
lican party is, at this moment more united and harmo

party, and worthy of the dignity and importance of
the glorious cause in which we are engaged.

extra number, containing all the election returns, and
