NEW EDITIONS

OF

WARREN'S GEOGRAPHIES,

CONTAINING

CENSUS OF 1860,

NEW MAPS,

RECENT DISCOVERIES,

AND

POLITICAL CHANGES,

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.
They are already introduced into the Schools of

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.

For copies for examination and terms for introduction, address

DEXTER S. STONE,

140 Westminster Street, Providence.

OCTOBER, 1861.

These pens are manufactured by JOSEPH GILLOTT, expressly to order, and are invariably pronounced the BEST PENS in the market. The Extra Fine Pen is adapted to schools of a higher grade, and is in every way equal to Gillott's 393. The School Pen is adapted to schools of an intermediate grade, and is an excellent BUSINESS PEN.

TRENCH

ON THE

STUDY OF WORDS.

A New Revised Edition,

(The twentieth thousand) from entirely new plates. Much improved and enlarged by the author RICHARD CHNEVIX TRENCH, D. D., DEAN OF WESTMINSTER.

"This well-known work is here offered in a greatly improved form; the order in which the thoughts are presented is often made more natural and consecutive; many pages are added here and there, not less valuable than any; additional examples and illustrations are given in large numbers; a few doubtful statements are modified or withdrawn, and the language has been pruned, condensed, and variously improved passim. It opens a world of attractive research and thought to the young student, and does this better than any other book we have. Made richer in suggestions and more trustworthy as a guide than before, it is entitled to a new lease of its high position. All lovers of our mother tongue will greet it eagerly."-Educational Herald.
