STATE NORMAL SCHOOL,

MILLERSVILLE, PA. April 27th, 1865. I have read Ritter's “Comparative Geography," as translated by William L. Gage, with very great satisfaction. It is a comprehensive, compact, and clear statement of the great principles of Geographical Science. Gevgraphy, as presented in our ordinary treatises, is not at all a science, bli merely a collection of facts and fragments; in this book, however, all details find their proper place in a philosophical system. No teacher of Geography should be without the book.

FROM THE MASSACHUSETTS TEACHER. We heartily invite the readers of the TEACHER to examine this excellent volume, believing that it will tend to lasten the time when teaching will be recognized as a profession, and the teacher be so fitted for his work as to command the respect of the wise and good.

FROM SILLIMAN'S JOURNAL. We cordially commend this work to all teachers of Physics, and especially to those whose situations or circumstances cut them off from access to a good collection of Physical Instruments.

While the most expert demonstrator may gain some useful hints from Dr. Frick's book, the less experienced teacher and student will find it an available vade mecum in the Physical Laboratory.

Crooks and Schem's New Latin-English School Lexicon.

On the basis of the Latin-German Lexicon of Dr. C. F. Ingerslev. By G. R. CROOKS, D. D. and A. J. SCHEM, A. M. One vol. 8 vo. $3.50.

FROM PROF. H. B. SMITH, Union Theological Seminary. It seems to me to be adinirably adapted to its object-erring neither on the score of redundancy nor deficiency:

The introduction of synonyms, of etymologies, and of proper names adds much to its value. Clearness, conciseness, and remarkable adapta tion to use are among the valuable qualities of your work.

I trust this volume may have the success it so richly deserves.

Will be sent by mail on receipt of the price by the publishers.

Hon, NEWTON BATEMAN says of it:

“Wilber's Physical and Descriptive Map of Illinois meets a want that has long been folt. With every advance in the science of Geography, greater importance and prominence havo been given to Physical Geography. This Map shows at a glance the vast and unrivalled coal fields of the State; the geological formation by section; the clin:atology, and its influcuce upun plants and trees, thus affording to even the casual observer, information of great value; the chart of congressional, senatorial and representative districts, the census by counties, the topographical table of railroads, showing the elevation of each station from the standard water-line, and the catalogue and groupings, by territorial districts, of the trees of the State all these are very useful and instructive, and constitute new and highly valuable features of thn Map, relieving it of the sterile details of mere contour, locality and nomenclature. It is well thus to trace the hand of Nature as well as of man, in the delineation of a great State. Added to this, the Map is very full and reliable in respect to location of rivers, cities, towns ard villages; thus' combining in one, and that at a moderate price, many excellencies. I tako gi sat pleasure in recommending Professor Wilber's Map to citizens of the State, and especially to all school officers." It has also received the highest commendations from
