An Address pronounced at the opening of the New York Ajhenæum, December 14, 1824. By Henry Wheaton. Second Edition. New York. J. W. Palmer. 8vo. pp. 62.

This beautiful edition of Mr Wheaton's Address is highly creditable to the New York press. It is refreshing to meet with so handsome a specimen of typography, after the numerous examples of wretched printing, which have recently come in our way. In this instance the printer's style of execution is worthy of the subject, and we are glad to see sentiments so sound in themseives, and so encouraging to our literary progress, clothed in an external dress so well corresponding to their intrinsic valuc.

The plan of this book is a good one, and the documents it contains render it useful and convenient in every library. The constitutions of each state, and the governors' speeches from the commencement of the state governments, printed in the same manner, would also be a desirable work, and easily compiled. Whether it would not be too voluminous to command a ready sale, is a question to be determined by previous inquiry.

VOYAGES AND TRAVELS. A Journal of a Tour around Hawaii, the largest of the Sandwich Islands. By a Deputation from the Mission on those Islands. 12mo. pp. 264. Boston. Crocker & Brewster.

The improvements, which have taken place among the inhabitants of the Society Islands and the Sandwich Islands, during the last twenty years, are among the remarkable events of the age. It is a new thing in the history of man, for savages to be civilised and christianised by direct efforts. In these islands, indeed, the problem, whether such an effect could be produced at all, has been solved for the first time. When Cook visited the inhabitants of these islands, few of the human family were more degraded in morals and intellect; but now, by the exertions of missionaries residing among them, and by their intercourse with people from civilised parts of the world, they have become acquainted with many of the arts of life and practise them, they have learnt reading and writing, abolished idolatry, reformed their governments, and are rapidly establishing institutions calculated to secure and increase their social improvement and happiness.

The tour around the island of Hawaii, or Owhyhee, (the island on which Captain Cook was killed,) is of a highly interesting character

It was performed by Messrs Ellis, Thurston, Stewart, Bishop, and Goodrich. • The Journal was drawn up by Mr Ellis, from minutes kept by himself, and by his associates on the tour, who subsequently gave it their approbation. These gentlemen enjoyed the best opportunity for observing the habits of the people, their modes of living, and moral condition, and also the physical structure, and the natural productions of the island. In all these respects the information contained in this Journal is novel, and will be highly gratifying both to the inquisitive and benevolent reader, who loves 10 contemplate the works of the Creator in all their variety, and to witness the efforts of philanthropic men for the improvement of the human race. In a future number we shall recur again to this “ Journal,' and speak more at large of its contents, and the curious topics they suggest.
