Observations on the Surgical Anatomy of the Head and Neck, illustrated by Cases and Engravings. By Allan Burns. First American Edition; with a Life of the Author, and Additional Cases and Observations. By Granville Sharp Pattison, Surgeon, , Professor of Surgery in the University of Maryland, &c. &c. 8vo. pp. 512. Baltimore. F. Lucas Jr. and E. J. Coale.

Before the death of that celebrated anatomist, Mr Allan Burns, of Glasgow, it seems he bequeathed the copyright of all his works to his friend, Mr Pattison, who had been his pupil. After this gentleman removed to America, the present work on the Surgical Anatomy of the Head and Neck, which had gained much celebrity with the profession in Great Britain, soon went out of print, and there was a loud call for another edition. Moved by this call, as well as by the highest respect for the memory of his departed friend and regard for the public benefit, in diffusing his works as widely as possible, Professor Pattison has published this volume, with a biographical notice of the author, and an appendix containing details of several cases, which have come under his own observation, and which illustrate the principles of the work. The present treatise is only the commencement of a plan, contemplated by

Allan Burns, of forming a complete system of surgical anatomy. This design he did not live to carry into effect. Professor Pattison proposes to pursue it, and to publish annually a volume on the subject, till it shall be accomplished.

The Institutes and Practice of Surgery ; being the Outlines of a Course of Lectures. By William Gibson, M. D. Professor of Surgery in the University of Pennsylvania, Surgeon and Clinical Lecturer to the Alms House Infirmary, &c. Vol. I. 8vo. pp. 459. Edward Parker, Philadelphia.

In his preface Professor Gibson observes, 'Unaccustomed in my Lectures to follow the exact arrangement of any systematic writer, my pupils have felt the want of a text book, and at different times have expressed a wish that I should compose one for their use.' The present volume is designed for this purpose. It contains seven chapters, embracing a part only of the subject. The work is to be continued. At the end of each chapter are given very full references to the best writers on the topics discussed, which must afford essential facilities to the student. The author says, that great care has been taken to exclude from the reference every publication of equivocal merit, or which has proceeded from the pen of an inexperienced writer.' The work contains several well executed drawings.

Boston Prize Poems, and other Specimens of Dramatic Poetry. 12mo. Boston.

This volume contains the Ode by Mr Charles Sprague, to which was lately assigned the prize offered by the managers of the Boston Theatre for the best poem, which should be presented suitable for recitation in the theatre, at a jubilee contemplated to be held in honor of Shakspeare. This Ode was successful over thirty three competitors, although another among the number possessed such intrinsic merit, that the committee who awarded the prize, considered it entitled to high commendation, and expressed their wish thai the author would allow it to be recited on the stage. This piece is also printed, together with nearly half of those, which were rejected,

By what authority these latter came before the public we know not, but if by consent of their authors, we think some of them more partial than just to themselves; and if without their consent, we should suppose they had some good cause of dissatisfaction. The publisher observes, 'that two or three are inserted, which his own taste and judgment would have induced him to reject,' and that 'the piece marked number thirteen, is inserted at the special request of the writer.' In addition to these poems, the volume contains Mr Sprague's two Prologues which gained prizes, one at Philadelphia, and the other at New York; Mr Wells' prize Address recited at New Orleans; and Robert Treat Paine's prize Prologue recited in the Boston Theatre, 1794. The celebrated Prologues and Odes of Pope, Johnson, Garrick, Rogers, Sheridan, Byron, and Kemble, written on similar occasions, are added at the close of the volume.

Speech of the Hon. William Smith of South Carolina delivered in the Senate of the United States, Dec. 8, 1820; Containing a View of the United States, Laws and Regulations of the several States on the subject of their Colored Population, Vagrants, &c. 12mo. Gales & Seaton. Washington, 1823.

Without pretending to enter into the merits of Mr Smith's argument, we will say, that we think the information which his pamphlet gives, in regard to the laws and regulations adopted from time to time by the several states, respecting the colored population, renders it a valuable document, and one which

may be circulated to advantage. The subject on which it touches is becoming every day more important, and it cannot be examined too deeply. In the main point of his argument, we should probably differ from the author, and to some of his closing reflections we should be loath to assent, and the spirit is sometimes such as we should not approve; but, notwithstanding these imperfections, we know not where can be found in so small a space, the same amount of knowledge concerning the laws above mentioned.

Hints on Extemporaneous Preaching. By Henry Ware, Jr. 18mo. pp. 93. Boston.

Mr Ware divides his subject into three parts. He first speaks of the advantages of extemporaneous preaching; then recurs to the disadvantages, and obviates the objections commonly advanced against this mode; and then concludes by a series of practical rules, by a strict observance of which, any person may attain the habit of expressing himself freely, and with propriety, unaided by written notes. This little volume is composed in a chaste and simple style, and contains many excellent views and judicious remarks on the subjects which it professes to discuss.
