A POPULAR ILLUSTRATED
Monthly Magazine of Natural History,

PUBLISHED BY THE
ESSEX INSTITUTE, SALEM, MASS.

Terms: $3.00 a year. Single numbers 25 cents. From the appreciative notices of the press, and letters received from eminent teachers and practical scientific men, as well as persons of general culture, the Editors feel assured that the publication of the AMERICAN NATURALIST, whicb covers a new field in this country, will prove a decided success. The circulation of the first number of the NATURALIST has already reached two thousand during the first month of its existence, and is rapidly increasing, showing the demand for a popular Natural History Journal adapted both for family reading, and as a medium of interchange between all lovers of Nature, who already can be counted by thousands in our country. For the small subscription price of $3.00 we give a handsomely printed yearly volume of OVER SEX HUNDRED PAGES, with upwards of FIFTEEN FULL-PAGE ILLUSTRATIONS AND MANY WOOD-CUTS, mainly illustrating the Animals, Plants and Geology of our country. It thus affords a rich fund of facts about the Haunts and Habits of the Inhabitants of our Fields, Woodlands and Waters; with timely warnings of the attack of Animals injurious to crops, and prac. tical hints regarding Fish culture and Bee keeping, thus embodying facts of interest to every Farmer, Physician and Teacher, and all others wishing to keep informed of the latest discoveries in Natural History.

Any person entering either of the schools, with extraordinary preparation, may obtain a degreesin onehalf or three-fourths of the time usually required.

To those who intend to teach in the public schools in Massachusetts, wherever they may have previously resided, tuition is free; and to pupils from this State, pecuniary aid is also given, when needed. Most of the text-books used are turnished from the libraries of the several schools.

At each examination, in all the schools, reading will receive particular attention, and the Lee prizes for excellence in reading will be conferred upon the best readers. For circulars, or for further information, application may be made to the principals of the several schools,

The following are the conditions on which the Lee prizes may be received:

To deserve a prize, the candidate must poguess naturally, or have gained by discipline, 1. A fulness of voice which shall enable him to fill, without apparent effort, the room occupied by the class. 2. Perfect distinctness of articulation, giving complete expression to every vocal element, and letting the sound of each word fall clearly upon the ear of the hearer, especially at the end of every sentence. 3. Correct pronunciation, with that roundness and fulness of enunciation, and sweetness and mellowness of tone, which only can satisfy and charm the ear and reach the heart; and 4. Just emphasis, clearly marked, but not overstrained. 5. He must read naturally, and with spirit, avoiding all affectation and mannerism, and keeping at the same time clear of the lifeless monotony common in schools, and of the excess of emphasis which so often characterizes poor declamation 6. In the readingof poetry, his tones must be those of unaffected emotion free from the tameness of prose, and from the too measured cadences of verse,
