\noindent We have two goals in this paper. First, we investigate and construct cofree coalgebras over $n$-representations of quivers, limits and colimits of $n$-representations of quivers, and limits and colimits of coalgebras in the monoidal categories of $n$-representations of quivers. Second, for any given quivers $\mathit{Q}_1$,$\mathit{Q}_2$,..., $\mathit{Q}_n$, we construct a new quiver $\mathscr{Q}_{\!_{(\mathit{Q}_1, \mathit{Q}_2,..., \mathit{Q}_n)}}$, called an $n$-quiver, and identify each category $Rep_k(\mathit{Q}_j)$ of representations of a quiver $\mathit{Q}_j$ as a full subcategory of the category $Rep_k(\mathscr{Q}_{\!_{(\mathit{Q}_1, \mathit{Q}_2,..., \mathit{Q}_n)}})$ of representations of $\mathscr{Q}_{\!_{(\mathit{Q}_1, \mathit{Q}_2,..., \mathit{Q}_n)}}$ for every $j \in \{1,2,\ldots , n\}$.
