BY JAMES S. BUCKINGHAM, ESQ.

Lord Ashburton to Mr. Buckingham. "I have read a considerable portion of your work on America—my long residence in that country leading me to take a deep interest in whatever concerns the great republic-and I have found in it more general and varied information than in any of the numerous works on the same subject which have issued from the press. I anı bound also to say, that, though I do not agree with you in all your views and opinions, they seem to bear the stamp of general impartiality and candour."

Gcorge Catlin, Esq., of New York, to Mr. Buckingham. “My wife and myself, now residing in London, have read your very interesting Work on our native country, America, with peculiar satisfaction; inasmuch as the nature of my pursuits has led us to visit nearly all the places and institutions you have so vividly and so justly described in your pages. In reading them, we have been carried along by a feeling scarcely less vivid and less real than if we were fellow travellers with you, and actually passing over the scenes you have so graphically described. I think you have brought to the Parent. Country, a very encouraging and just account of her Transatlantic Child, and this at a time when general and correct information is peculiarly desirable, to remove mutual prejudices, and to promote a fair and friendly understanding between the two Countries."

Lilerary Gazette." It is a very entire and comprehensive view of the United States, diligently collected by a man of observation."

Athenacum.--"While others have been content to give in general summaries the results of their ooservations, Mr. Buckingham goes deliberately through the States, treating of all, historically and statistically-of their rise and progress, their manufactures, trade, population, topography, fertility, resources, morals, manners, education, and so forth. Mr. Buckingham's volumes will be found a storehouse of knowledge."

Th- Sun.-" His volumes, the result of three years' close and patient observation, are worthy of every attention, and certainly furnish us with the clearest ideas we have yet had of the present aspects of society in the United States."

Bristol Journal.-" Mr. Buckingham's work, we do not hesitate to state, appears to contain by far the most voluminous, extensive, and amusing history of the United States in the three characters, historical, statistic, and descriptive,' that has yet been published

East India Telegraph.-"In Mr. Buckingham's America, the public possesses one of the most generally interesting works, descriptive of the New World, which has ever emanated from the press. The extensive geographical range of the country traversed by our experienced traveller--the multiplicity of subjects which have occupied his pen-his agreable style of composition-the ability and tact with which he has blended his. torical and statistical matter with bright delineations of manners and customs, the general topics dwelt on in cities and states--and, especially, the philanthropic purpose, in the prosecution of which Mr. Buckingham has gathered the stores of knowledge enumerated-combine to produce a book of travels containing literary ana unsurpassed for novelty, comprehensiveness, and interest, by any extant work.”

Sheffield Independent." We have seen enough of the work to ascertain that it fully realizes the high anticipations which our knowledge of Mr. Buckingham, as an author, as a man of most varied information, and of great acuteness, had induced us to form. He writes in a spirit of candour and honesty. He neither flatters America at the expense of England, nor England at the expense of America, but draws his contrasts between the morality, the intelligence, the manners, and the habits of the two countries, in that spirit of fairness which alone can give value to such comparisons."

Bristol Mercury." Mr. Buckingham, too, did not steam' it through the country, and write 'flying sketches,' caught from the decks of steam-boats, or from the windows of railway carriages, the manners, habits, and customs of the people being picked up exclusively from the conversation of passengers by those modes of conveyance: but he took up his abode in the principal towns for months together. The result has been a work, not written to support any political or preconceived theory, and, in fact not dealing much in disquisitions or inferences, but comprising a vast mass of most valuable and interesting information, presented to the reader in a clear, unaffected, and judicious manner."

Bath Journal.-—"Mr. Buckingham gives full scope to his powerful mind in his America-he makes his work attractive to the millions by a detail of every circumstance which tends to show the character of the people he has to describe. We may now say that America is more ably and more impartially described than has yet been her fate; and we sincerely trust that all national prejudices have the axe laid to their roots, and that they will give place to a new spirit, which will bring both nations into a more intimate connection, and extend the interchange of commercial advantages, among the people both of America and Great Britain."

Liverpool Albion-"He, however, deals not in dry details, but conducts his readers with him in a plain and business-like manner, bestowing upon them, en passant, the richness of his well-stored mind. Describing events and occurrences as they actually took place, noting everything that met his view, of habit, manner, and character, the appearance of cities, and aspect of countries, with the accuracy of one possessed of a trained eye and understanding. By introducing us to all objects worthy of notice, and in the direct order in which such objects canie under his own observation, he almost realizes to ourselves the scenes of his travel, and, as we visit the edifices and public institutions which he examined, we are enabled to form a correct notion of the customs of our brethren of the United States in many particulars which other travellers have overlooked or deemed unworthy of attention."

Scotsman.-"We have always suspected the eulogiums of American writers on the eloquence of their public speakers, to be, if not wholly unmerited, at least absurdly extravagant; but we do not recollect to have met with any remarks in any work on America, till we read Mr. Buckingham's, calculated to give us something like positive and correct information on this subject. Numerous as the works on America already are, there is not one which we should, for various reasons, so unbesitatingly recommend, as this of Mr. Buckingham's.”

Plymouth Herald -“These volumes contain a fund of knowledge on every subject connected with America: its rise and progress; the education, manners, and merits of its inhabitants ; its manufactures, trade, population, &c.; in fact, no subject of importance is left untouched. It is quite refreshing to peruse the sensible and sterling remarks of this writer, after what has recently teemed from the press on the United States of America. This work is a valuable addition to the standard literature of the age.'

Edinburgh Erening Courant.--"Some travellers have exalted everything American as above all praise; while others have found nothing in the institutions and manners of that country but food for caricature. Mr. Buckingham, however, steers a middle course, he is perfectly candid and impartial; he is no indiscriminate panegyrist of America, nor does he satirize either her institutions or manners, but seems to distribute blame and praise with perfect fairness."

Lirerpool Chronicle.—"The cirumstances of Mr. Buckingham's life qualify him, above others, to present to the English reader a faithful and striking transcript of the social, commercial, literary, and political character of our transatlantic neighbours. His work contains features of a pleasing kind, peculiar to itself. Whether regarded as a work of instruction, amusement, or as a mere political treatise, it is a production of great merit and unquestionable utility."

Morning Herald.-"There are few men, in this age of adventure and exertion, whose intellectual labours and researches bave been more extensive and varied, and have embraced a wider range over the globe, than Mr. Buckingham. His public labours extend over our Colonial possessions, and large portions of the Eastern and Western worlds. For the present we would direct public attention to the very important work on America which he has now published. or his qualifications for ihe task he has undertaken, and of his literary acquiroments, it may suflice to say, that he possesses a thorough knowledge of trade and commerce, in all their multifarious depariments, has had great experience of the world, united to literary powers of observation and narration of the holiest arter, spaaks tuently many ancient and a great number of moderv languages, and the list of his published words is such an extent as perhaps no man living has produced."
