In the press, and speedily will be published, a new edition of the Historia Muscorum of Dillenius. It is known that in the life time of the author 250 copies only of this most valuable work were published, so that now when they appear for sale, they sell at a very high price. About 40 years ago, a few copies of the plates were thrown off unaccompanied with the text, and the plates were then destroyed. These are now accurately re-engraved,' and the whole will be presented to the Botanical World in a very respectable form. Care has been taken that the references of Authors will apply to this edition as well as to the origmal. It is proposed to

throw off a few copies of the text to accommodate those who are already in possession of the plates. . .

A new editirm of the Greek Grammar, and Greek and English Scripture Lexicon, By, Greville Ewing, Minister of the Gospel in Glasgow, is at present in the Press, and will be ready for Public cation in a few weeks. The greater part of the Grammar, and the whole of the Lexicon, have been composed anew, and both are greatly enlarged.

The principal tenses of the verbs are now also inserted in the Lexicon: important words are illustrated at considerable length; and the illustrations are frequently supported by quotations from Scripture, from the Greek Fathers, and from the Classics. The whole will be comprised in one volume af nearly 400 pages, royal 8vo. The printing has been conducted with the greatest care, under the Author's immediate inspection.
