HON. JOHN D. PHILBRICK,
SUPERINTENDENT OF THE BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
The Publishers would invite the attention of School Officers and Teachers to this valuable contribution to the means of elementary instruction.
The Set comprises Twenty Tablets, mounted on ten cards, twenty-one by twenty-seven inches. Each of these cards, containing two Tablets, is complete in itself, and may be used independently of the others. The plan is original, and supplies a want which has been felt very generally by teachers in elementary schools.
These Tablets are especially adapted to the use of all Primary and ungraded District Schools. Some of them are also adapted to the lower classes of Grammar Schools, and to Intermediate Schools. By means of these Tablets, the teacher is enabled to instruct a whole class or a school at the same time; and can sometimes accomplish in an hour what would require days of individual teaching. In connection with the slate and the blackboard, these Tablets afford important facilities for oral teaching, which experience has proved to be indispensable to the highest success in elementary instruction. Children love variety, and they must have it in school. Where these tablets are in use, there will be little or no occasion for the use of text-books during the first six months of the child's schooling.
They have been prepared with great care by a practical educator, who has made the subject of elementary teaching a study for years, and who has brought to their preparation precisely those qualifications which are requisite for such a task.
These Tablets have recently been adopted by the School Committees of
Brooklyn, N. Y.,

SARGENT'S ORIGINAL DIALOGUES :
A Collection for School and Family Reading and Representation.
Author of the Standard Speakers, the Standard Readers, Spellers, &c.
The few original Dialogues that Mr. Sargent has published having attained a rare popularity and been in extensive demand for School Exhibitions, &c., Mr. S. has yielded to the solicitations of many of our most eminent teachers in all parts of the country, and consented to prepare the new collection which we here announce. It forms a handsome large duodecimo of 336 pages, with a fine portrait of the author, engraved on steel, and with wood cuts representing appropriate attitudes in dialogue delivery. Price, $1.00. The usual discount to the Trade.
On receipt of one dollar, a copy will be sent, postage prepaid, to any teacher or pupil.
From the National Intelligencer.
The dialogues are eminently adapted to representation; vivid, full of action, with characters well discriminated, and language never bordering on coarseness.
From the New York Home Journal.
The best collection of dialogues in the language. It ought to be introduced into every school in the country where elocution is taught.
From the Chicago Democrat.
A book worth having, It is written in excellent style, and calculated to delight all intelligent boys and girls.
From the Gardiner, (Me.) Home Journal.
Will be a favorite in every academy, high school, grammar school, or county school-everywhere where “* boys are boys." It is decidedly the best collection of dialogues for youthful repre sentation that we have ever examined.
From the Boston Post.
These dialogues seem to be immensely popular with the boys. The book reached a third edition before it had been out ten days.
From the Manchester (N. H.) Mirror.
Many a weary search have we had in our school days for just such a book as this.
Sargent's dialogues are not only such as the young will read and recite with the keenest interest, but they are of a character to delight an audience, and to bring out the elocutionary talents of the speakers.
SARGENT'S STANDARD READERS, CHARTS, &C.
Sargent's Standard Series of Readers is now the leading Series used in the Eastern States, and in most of the principal cities of the Union, and comprise five carefully graded Readers, a l'rimer, and two Spelling Books.
These Readers have met with unprecedented success; more than five millions of copies having already passed into schools. Their points of superiority are:-1. The appropriate character of the reading matter, and the great care evident in the preparation. 2. The drilling exerci-e, and the simple system of reference, by which accuracy in pronunciation is secured. 3. The Explanatory index, by which difficult words are explained, and a taste for etymology is inculcated 4. Superiority in the careful graduation of the several Realers to different capacities; ease and simplicity being studied, and the labors of the teacher much lessened. 5. Superiority in the mechanical execution, paper, binding, &c., and, in the smaller books, in the wood-cuts. 6. In the Speller a scientific classification of words, with Dictation Exercises, combining all the modern improvements. The present publisher devotes his whole time exclusively to the manufacture and sale of these works. He has paid especial attention to the printing and binding, which have been greatly improved under his charge. The sales are constantly increasing.
The testimonials as to the superiority of Sargent's Readers are so numerous, and from such high quarters, that we must refer Committees and Teachers to the pamphlet containing them, which may be had gratis, and postpaid, on application to the publisher.
Copies of the Readers will be furnished gratis to School Committees and Teachers, who are desirous of examining the same, with a view to introduction into schools, on application to the publisher. Or they will be sent by mail, prepaid, when the amount of postage is sent in stamps. The postage rates are, on the Fifth Reader, 24 cents; the Fourth, 18 cents; the Third, 15 cents; the Second, 12 cents; and on the First, 9 cents; Standard Speller, 12 cents; Standard Primer, 6 cents; Smaller Standard Speller, 6 cents.
The New Lithographed edition of Sargent's Standard School Charts (to accompany Sargent's Standard Readers) is now ready. The Charts are six in number, and each Chart is 22 by 28 inches in dimensions. The Charts may be had either on six single sheets, as they come from the stone, or mounted on three large cards with a Chart on each side. In sheets, these Charts may be nailed or pasted on a wall, and renewed at small expense, when defaced. The six lithographed Charts in sheets, will be sent, by mail, postpaid, for 75 cents.

Containing a Concise Text, and Explanatory Notes,
WITH OVER 100 MAPS,
FOR THE USE OF SCHOOLS IN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA.
AUTHOR OF SEVERAL SCHOOL BOOKS...................
.QUARTO. PRICE $1.00.
SMITH'S NEW GEOGRAPHY has been in course of preparationfor many years, and is the crowning production of the distinguished author. No pains have been spared to combine in this work ALL that is essential to a complete and comprehensive School Geography, and great care has been taken in its construction to render it of the greatest practical usefulness in the school-room and family. The following are some of its features which deserve attention :
I. Clearness and comprehensiveness of expres- and terms. This feature is of great practical valsion in the Text, especially in the Definitions; it ue to teachers, and intelligent scholars. being the aim of the author to teach the pupils just what they want to know, and in as few words as practicable.
11. Superior colored Maps. exhibiting the Races, Religions, Governments, and states of Civilization of different nations.
III. Forty-four Vicinity Maps of the Principal Cities on the globe.
IV. Thirty-two large full-paged Maps of States
VI. Comparative Map on a uniform scale, exhibiting the relative size of the different Countries and larger Islands on the globe.
VII. Railroad Map of the United States, exhibiting the principal railway lines, with their connections.
VIII. Physical Geography, with Humboldt's System of Isothermal Lines.
IX. Outline of Mathematical Geography. V. Copious Marginal Notes and Explanations, X. Geographical Clock, exhibiting the relative giving the derivation and meaning of difficult words time of day under different degrees of Longitude. FROM PROF. F. A. ALLEN, CHESTER COUNTY NORMAL SCHOOL.
Messrs. J. B. LIPPINCOTT & Co.:
Dear Sirs:- Some time since, we placed in the hands of our advanced Teachers' Class a supply of Smith's New Geography, both for study and recitation, and for criticism; and the result of our experience with the work has been such as to satisfy us of its value and superiority as a text-book. It is without doubt the most comprehensive work of its size now published, and sufficiently comprehensive to answer all the purposes of an advanced work for higher institutions.
An important and valuable feature in the work, and one to which the attention of teachers ought to be called, is the marginal notes and definitions. In these will be found answers to the "thousand and one" questions asked by inquisitive pupils, such as- Why are burning mountains called volcanoes?" Why are the great plains in North America called prairies or savannas, while in South America they are called pampas and llanos, in Europe heaths, and in Asia steppes?" these words pronounced, and what do they mean?" These and a host of similar questions, are answered and fully explained. Upon every page of the work this feature stands out.
The original small maps, exhibiting the Races, Religions, Governments, and states of Civilization, the Isothermal lines, Volcanic systems, etc., etc., together with the forty-four Vicinity Maps, and the thirty-two full-page Maps, are not surpassed by any other work extant.
The pages devoted to Ancient Geography, embracing Maps of the Roman Empire, and other noted places of antiquity, will prove a very acceptable feature to every teacher. The work is sufficiently full upon this po.nt to give a clear and general knowledge of the subject. The department of Physical Geography is quite satisfactory. Enough is given to serve as an outline of the study.
Among the many excellent features in the work, we cannot fail to call the attention of all to the Comparative Mip, on a uniform scale, as well as the Celestial Map and Diagrams. These, in connection with the Geographical Clock, are matters of sufficient importance alone to commend the work. The test to which we are daily submitting this work proves highly satisfactory to all concerned; and, thou h somewhat prejudiced against it at first, we are now fully convinced of its merits, an evidence of which is found in the fact that we have adopted it as our standard text-book in Geography. Very respectfully yours, F. A. ALLEN, Principal of C. C. N. School.
FROM THE MASS. TEACHER.
"All we have to say is, that this Geography is a novelty and a choice one too. If we had to select to-day a geographical text-book for our own use we should choose this."
TEACHERS will be furnished with copies of the work, in flexible covers, by mail, for examination, upon receipt of 25 cents in money or postage stamps, by the Publishers; and schools will be supplied with the work, for introduction, upon accommodating terms.
