By A. N. Johnson.

THIS BOOK CONTAINS A METHOD FOR TEACHING NOTES

Much more simple and efficient than any heretofore published. It contains pieces FOR ALL SCHOOL OCCASIONS, with 175 Beautiful Songs of EVERY VARIETY. It contains an ingenious arrangement called —

“Musical Words of Command,” Which, although designed to develop musical expression, will exercise as beneficial an effect on the Discipline of a School as MILITARY DRILL.

In many respects this is very different from any other School Song Book, and Teachers are earnestly invited to examine it.

GOODRICH'S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES.

RE-WRITTEN, AND BROUGHT DOWN TO THE PRESENT TIME (1867).

BY WM. H. SEAVEY, A. M.,

Principal of the Girls' High and Normal School, Boston.

This edition of Goodrich's " History of the United States” has been prepared from the latest and most trustworthy authorities. It has been attempted, by brevity of statement and an economical arrangement of matter, to bring the story of our history through the war of the rebellion, without making it so meagre as to be useless or swelling the book to an inconvenient size. To do this, it has been necessary to re-write nearly the whole work, which (exclusive of an Appendix of 28 pages), including maps, portraits and many other illustrations, useful chronological tables, and tables of analysis, is comprised in 320 pages 12mo.

The History is divided into six periods. A careful ANALYSIS prepares the way for the logical and systematic study of each period.

The book may be used as three separate histories, or each may be made to assist the other.

1st. The Chronological Reviews alone may be committed to memory; and, from the ten pages of these, the learner will, we believe, get a more accurate and definite statement of the country's history than most students carry away with them from schools.

20. The larger print of the text, without the smaller, may be studied by itself, giving a history of the United States in about 150 pages.

3d. The smaller print may be studied with the other.

The whole forms a carefully prepared work, arranged so as to facilitate the labor of the teacher, and fix the facts stated in the mind of the pupil by various little aids to the memory, the importance of which the practical teacher can well understand.

The CHRONOLOGICAL REVIEWs are very different from chronological tables in other school histories. Events are not merely enumerated, but stated in complete sentences, and, when desirable, in connected form.

Accompanying the Chronological Review of each period is a list of MEMORABLE EVENTS in contemporary history, and a list of names of the most EMINENT PERSONS who closed their career during the period.

By means of FOOT-NOTES AND CROSS-REFERENCES, the text is still further illustrated, and its facts more securely stored in the memory. Each important topic can be read by itself, and the whole career of persons celebrated in the history of our country can readily be traced as they are mentioned in this work.

The PRINCIPAL SUBJECT OF EACH PARAGRAPH is seen at a glance by means of catch-words, which are printed in a full-face type or in Italics. Many teachers will use these, instead of the questions at the foot of the page, in conducting the recitation. They will also be of great assistance to the pupil in preparing the lesson, and to the general reader in using the book for reference.

DATES are given in a full-face type in the margin, eo as still more to attract the attention to important events.

The book is illustrated by SUPERIOR MAPs. The design has been to show by them the loca. tion of every place in the United States mentioned in the history. Much care has also been taken to give acceptable PORTRAITS of the most eminent historical personages.

The progress of ideas and the development of parties are more clearly shown than in other school histories.

In the history of the wars, the author has endeavored to state clearly and distinctly the movements of armies in each department, and the relative value of the different military and naval operations,

We take pleasure in announcing the publication of the above book, and solicit correspondence with School Committees and Teachers with regard to the introduction of the same into schools under their charge.

Many new and original improvements in the Arrangement, Notation

and Applications, have been introduced into this Treatise, not
before presented to the public, which greatly simplify and adapt the
system to general use

The following Points claim Special Attention:
1st. The clear and comprehensive manner in which the nomenclature is presented in the
general analysis.

2d. The simple and entirely ORIGINAL abbreviation of the nomenclature, completely retaining its expressiveness and universality, and at the same time adapting it to the wants of business men. This abbreviation obviates one of the greatest objections to the use of the Metric System.

3d. Its simple, original and scientific notation.
4th. Its full and intelligible exhibit of the measurement of surfaces, solids and angles.

5th. The employment of but two simple rules for changing from the old system to the new,
and from the new system to the old.

This Treatise will be added to the future editions of Robinson's Rudiments, Practical and Higher Arithmetics.

There will also be inserted in Percentage, in the Higher Arithmetic, several pages on the different kiuds of U. S. SECURITIES, Bonds, TREASURY Notes, GOLD INVESTMENTS, CURRENCY, &c., with PRACTICAL EXAMPLES. This change and addition will not interfere in the use of the book with previous editions of the same.

The Metric System, and the aforenamed IMPROVEMENT IN PERCENTAGE, will also be bound in pamphlet form, containing about 47 12mo pages, and will be sent to any address, by mail, on receipt of TWENTY-FIVE CENTS.
