Providence Evening Press Establishment.
NO. 16 WEYBOSSET STREET,
NEXT DOOR NORTH OF THE POST OFFICE, PROVIDENCE. COOKE & DANIELSON, proprietors of the above establishment, invite an increase of the favor already extended to them as the publishers of
1. THE PROVIDENCE EVENING PRESS,
The largest daily newspaper in the State, and the only evening paper published in Rhode Island. It always has the latest telegraphic news, the same as contained in the Boston papers received in Providence several hours afterward. City and State intelligence will be found copiously set forth in its columns. Its general news and miscellaneous interesting matter in great abundance give it an additional passport to public favor. Its editorial conduct is strictly upon independent principles. Two editions of this handsomely printed journal are published daily.
THE EVENING PRESS is furnished to subscribers at the very low price of $6 per annum, payable in advance for any time desired. It is served in any part of the city at twelve cents per week, to such as prefer a weekly arrangement. Single copies, two cents each, may be procured at the office, at the news depots, and of the newsboys.
THE EVENING PRESS is a very valuable medium for advertisers, and both yearly and transient advertisers will be dealt with liberally.
THE RHODE ISLAND
Which is equalled in size by only one other weekly Rhode Island paper, contains a very large amount of reading matter, and is suphlied to subscribers at the cheap rate of $1.50 per year, payable in advance. Ten copies will be sent to one address for a year for $10. Single numbers, three cents. Only a limited number of advertisements will be received for this paper, the advertisers in which will find their interest promoted by an arrangement with respect to it.
3. THE RHODE ISLAND SCHOOLMASTER.
BOOK AND JOB PRINTING.
The Proprietors of this establishment confidently invite the patronage of the public in connection with their Book and Job Printing Department. They are prepared to execute all kinds of letter press printing with NEATNESS, CHEAPNESS and PROMPTNESS. No pains will be spared to make it to the interest of their friends to transact business of this kind with them.
CENSUS OF 1860,
The Publishers are aware of the objection to the revision of school books, on account of the inconvenience arising from the use of different editions of them in the same class. This objection, however does not apply to a Geography as to other text-books, for a work on this subject, to be correct, must, from time to time, record the discoveries and changes which are constantly taking place. No difficulty will be found in using the present edition in connection with the former one; since, with few exceptions, the pages and paragraphs precisely correspond with each other.
These Geographies are now used in nearly all the large cities in the United States.
Twenty-Six Towns in Rhode Island,
including PROVIDENCE, NEWPORT, BRISTOL, WARREN, &c., &c. Will it not be for the advantage of
Teachers, School Committees, Scholars and Parents,
to have them used uniformly throughout the State?
In order to facilitate such an arrangement,
SPECIALLY FAVORABLE TERMS
will be given for their introduction into the schools of the remaining towns.
