“No other Geographer living understands the relations of the physical features of our earth so well, or knows how to present them to students with such simplicity and clearness as Prof. Guyot.

L. AGASSIZ.” Prof. Guyot's system of Geography is new, simple and philosophical. It is based upon two leading principles.

1. A Recognition of the Law of the Mind's Development.
2. A Recognition of Geography as a Science.

Following out the first principle named, the manner of presenting the subject at dif. ferent stages of the pupil's schooling, is adapted to the capacity of the mind to learn at those stages. Thus the Primary Geography is a primary book in style and method, as well as in name and size. It is not a catalogue of dry detinitions, a summary of unrelated facts, a selection of scien. tific generalizations abbreviated from a larger work. It is a book titted to feed the minds of children, to give them ideas, instead of mere words, interesting geographical information instead of mere names and statistics. This sume principle also governs in the COMMON SCHOOL GEOGRAPHY

Following ont the second principle named, Prof. Guyot's presents the scientific and philosophical method of teaching and studying the subject of Geography. Hence there is an order in its development, a true point of beginning, and certain fixed successive steps, the topics being unfolded, one after another, in their natural order of dependence. For instance, this method proposes lst, TO IMPRESS UPON TAE MIND THE IMAGE OF A COUNTRY AS IT EXISTS IN NATURE, its position on the globe, its forms of contour and relief, its lake and river systems, its climate, and the distribution of plants and animals, each topic being more or less dependent on that which precedes it; 20, TO TEACH THE GEOGRAPHY OF MAN, as, races of people, their distribution, states of society, governments, industries, etc., Political and Statistical Geography.

This series of Geographies has recently been adopted for the public schools in SALEM, SPRINGFIELD, FITCHBURG, WATERTOWN, PLYMOUTH, READING, EXETER, N. H., and many other places in New England.

TESTIMONIALS.

Boston, Jan. 31, 1867. We have used Peirce's Patent Slates for some time in our schools, and, from our experience, and their present improved character, we believe they are superior to any other slates we have ever seen and shall favor their more extended use.

C. GOODWIN CLARK, " Lincoln " The following is from "The Father of the Public School System of Pennsylvania," and, for many years, State Superintendent:

LANCASTER, Jan. 4, 1867. From its origin to its present improved and satisfactory condition, I have watched the prog. ress of the artificial Slate or Stone Surface of Mr. I. Newton Peirce. I have.seen it introduced in many schools and institutions, and have never known its use to be abandoned, or to fail of giving satisfaction. In facility of application, rapidity of drying for use, cheapness and durability as a wall surface, in lieu of the old black-board, it is all that can be desired. Its merits, in the shape of Portable Slates, Tablets, etc., need not be asserted. In this form it will speak for itself, on inspection."

THOMAS H. BURROWES.

PHILADELPIJIA, Jan. 7, 1867. I have used "Peirce's Book Slater and Tablets ” in my school for one year and a half. I find them so satisfactory, that I do not wish to ever again use a stone slate in the school-room.

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 22, 1866. At a meeting of the Controllers of Public Schools, First District of Pennsylvania, held at the Controllers' Chamber, Friday, Dec. 21, 1866, the following resolution was unanimously adopted :
