Jan. am.

On the 15th of October, 1864, Miss M. Atkins resumes, after a year's absence, the control of this Institution, and hopes, with renewed health, energy and care, on her part, and with the assistance of her old corps of well-known and thoroughly qualificd teachers, to make the school worthy of the patronage of a discriminating public.

This Institution has never been sold, or its ownership transferred; but it was rented for one year, with the special understanding that its character and identity should be preserved. The period of rent has expired; and on Miss Atkins' return to the school, it becomes established on a more permanent basis than ever before.

The Discipline, Regulation and Course of Study of the school are such as have been published, annually, in its Catalogues; or, materially, such as are found in the best regulated Seminaries for Young Ladies.

THE

Comprehensive Geography,

COMPLETING

LIPPINCOTT'S GEOGRAPHICAL SERIES.

The COMPREHENSIVE GEOGRAPHY is entirely new in subject-matter manner, and illustration.

It is eminently historical. The gradual advance of geographical knowledge in, past ages* is made to assist in the development of the subject now.

It contains Physico-Descriptive, as well as Mathematical and Political Geography, hence

It contains two books, and is fifty per cent. cheaper than any other work of its class.

It contains relief maps, showing clearly the general structure of the lands—a feature of no other work.

Surrounding the relief maps are cuts representing the animals and plants peculiar to or characteristic of the countries.

The sectional maps of the United States are drawn upon a uniform scale.
In short, the work is norel in nearly all respects.
It will be mailed for examination by school officers on receipt of $1.00.

Under this head are reductions of the globe of Behaim, constructed while Columbus was on his first voyage to America; and the Western Hemisphere of John Schonu, in 1520. Fac-similes of the original globes, lithographed, in four brilliant colors, on heavy print paper, 2x3 feet, are published in English, at $2.00 for the set of three. Persons of antiquarian taste will be delighted with these reproductions. Agents will be supplied with them on very favorable terms.

Cornell's Geographies are officially recommended for the use of the Public Schools of the States of Vermont, Ohio, Indiana, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, and a part of the series is adopted in the State Series of California. They are in use in Public Schools of New York, Brooklyn, San Francisco, Sacramento, and numerous cities east and west.

No other School-Books ever published in this country, have received such universal and unqualified commendation and approval, as has been awarded to the Cornell Series by the Press, by State, County, and Town School Officers ; by Presidents and Professors of Colleges, Principals of Academies, and Teachers of Public and Private Schools throughout the whole country.

Hall of the Board of Education, New York, Clerk's Office, Aug. 23, 1856. GENTLEMEN :- In answer to your inquiry in regard to the use of Cornell's Series of Geographies in the Public Schools of New York, I will state that since their publication, about four-fifths of the whole number of Geographies used in the schools under the jurisdiction of the Board of Education (25,000 copies a year) have been of Cornell's Series. This must be quite gratifying to both author and publishers, as the Teachers are left free to choose such as they deem best adapted to the purposes of instruction.

ALBERT GILBERT, CLERK.

Office of Commissioners of Public Schools, BALTIMORE, April 23, 1862. At a meeting of the Board of Commissioners of Public Schools, held Tuesday March 18th, 1862, the Committee on Books reported in favor of introducing Cornell's Series of Geographies into the Schools, in place of Warren's, and the Board adopted the recommendation of the Committee without dissent.
