etymology, and radical, transferred and tropical meanings of words, as found in the best general lexicons.

3. Notes, sufficiently copious for a full understanding of the author, but far less abundant than those of the editions now in common use. The grammatical references, however, are much more nunerous than those of any other cdition.

There is no doubt in cur mind but that this edition will meet, at once, with universal favor. It has been a great objection to the study of Virgil that a dictionary was indispensable, and the poorer classes were unable to provide it. With this ciition the objection is removed. In our own esperience we have oftentimes been obliged to introduce some other Latin work in the place of Virgil, for the reason that the whole class couill not purchase dictiorarios. Prof. Searing has given a great many years to the study of Latin, and for a long time almost his entire attention to this work. Before seeing the wuok, we are prepared to speak unqualifiedly in its favor.
