ADAPTED TO

Public Schools, Academies, Seminaries and Colleges.

THE NATIONAL SERIES OF SCHOOL READERS. This is a well graduated series, consisting of five numbers, two Spellers and one Primar. No. 1, with the Primer, contains the popular WORD BUILDING METHOD, which has ia a measure rendered these books so deservedly popular. It is the only Word Jethod that may be regarded as a system. The subjects and language of the lower numbers are simple and easily comprehended; and throughout the series cach number has its peculiar features, and is well adapted to the wants of the pupils for whom they were designed.

THE NATIONAL SERIES OF MATHEMATICS. THE PRIMARY ARITHMETIC is adapted to the capacity and wants of the young child. Sensible objects are used to illustrate and make familiar the simple combinauods and relations of numbers. Thus the mind of the pupil is gradually led from what is nisi ble and tangible to the more abstract properties of numbers.

THE INTELLECTUAL ARITHMETIC presents a thorough and complete analysis of the science of numbers, and forms a full course of Jental Arithmetic.

THE PRACTICAL ARITHMETIC combines theory and practice; explains and illus trates principles, and applies them to the common transactions of life, thus making it einphatically a practical icork.

THE UNIVERSITY ARITUMETIC is designed for more advanced classes, and treåts of numbers principally as a science. The other Books of the series are as follows:

DAVIES' NEW ELEMENTARY ALGEBRA,
DAVIES' UNIVERSITY ALGEBRA,
DAVIES' BOURDON'S ALGEBRA,
DAVIES ELEMENTARY GEOMETRY AND TRIGONOMETRY,
DAVIES' LEGENDRE'S GEOMETRY,
DAVIES' ELEMENTS OF SURVEYING,
DAVIES' PRACTICAL MATHEMATICS,
DAVIES' ANALYTICAL GEOMETRY AND CALCULUS,
DAVIES' LOGIC OF MATHEMATICS,
DAVIES' SHADES, SHADOWS,

AND 'PERSPECTIVE,
DAVIES' KEYS TO ARITHMETICS, ALGEBRAS, etc.

THE NATIONAL SYSTEM OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR. Clark's English Grammar is now one of the most prominent and popular Books before the public. Its plan is simple and comprehensive; definitions brief and clear; arrangement natural; its diagrams, with which the relations of elements are illustrated, profuse; and the whole a work of superior merit and a decided advance on anything hitherto published.

CLARK'S FIRST LESSONS,
CLARK'S ENGLISH GRAMMAR,
CLARK'S ANALYSIS OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE,
CLARK'S KEY TO ENGLISH GRAMMAR,
CLARK'S ETYMOLOGICAL CHART (Mounted),
CLARK'S GRAMMATIC CHART
CLARK'S GRAMMATIC CHART (on muslin).

THE NATIONAL SERIES OF GEOGRAPHIES. The rapid and extensive circulation of these books has no parallel in the history of any other text-book of their kind in this country. Its happy combination of History and Geography, in the lower numbers, is a feature that has elicited the unbounded praise of our best educators.

MONTEITH'S NATIONAL GEOGRAPHY, No. 1,
MONTEITH'S NATIONAL GEOGRAPHY, No. 2,
MONTEITH'S NATIO GEOGRAPHY, No. 3,

MONALLY'S NATIONAL GEOGRAPHY, No. 4. These Books, for first introduction, or for single copies to examine with a view to intra duction, will be supplied at one-half retail price. Correspondence invited, and Catalogue sent by applying to the publishers,

The College School forms the Preparatory Department of the College of Califor. nia, in which students are fitted in regular course for the College, in all the required branches,—up to the standard of this or of any of the Eastern Colleges. A well-proportioned general education is bestowed upon those who do not desire to pursue the full college course. Thorough discipline is required in the English branches. Especial attention is given to Mathematics and the Natural Sciences. Competent preparation is imparted for the professions of Civil Engineering and Surveying. Book-keeping and Penmanship are taught as well as they commonly are in schools exclusively commercial.

The Teachers in this Institution are all professional men, who have occupied prominent positions in the work of education in Colleges or as Principals of Schools and Acadernies.

The School, with its graded divisions, forms, in connection with the College, a chain of Departments, where, upon a consistent plan, and with steady advancement, students may receive a complete, solid, and finished education. The location is perhaps the best in the State for healthful physical development. The students of twelve years of age and under find a home by themselves at the table and under the care of the gentleman and lady who are their principal instructors. Over all of the students a watchful supervision is exercised. The highest ends and results of education are assiduously sought.
