excited and well maintained to the end. The leading, or topical words, being printed in conspicuous type, are impressed more readily upon the mind of the learner. Admirable illustrative maps accompany the text, and the chronological review tables are quite full enough for the general student.

SALLUSTI CATILINA ET JUGURTHA, with explanatory notes, lexicon, etc. By George Stuart, A.M. Philadelphia: Eldredge & Brother. Boston: J. L. Hammett. This adds another volume to the Chase and Stuart Classical Series. The text is based upon a careful comparison of Gerlach and Jordanus, the most approved German editors of Sallust. The grammatical references and notes are numerous, and furnish all the assistance the scholar needs. The lexicon contains the words and names of the text, and the forms of less obvious derivation. It is enough to say that this volume is issued in the same form and prepared with the same care as its predecessors.

THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES, its Causes, Character, Conduct, and Results. By Hon. Alexander H. Stephens. Boston: National Publishing Company. The second and concluding volume of this important work by the Vice-President of the late Southern Confederacy, is now issued. The first volume detailed the causes which led to the secession of the South ; the second narrates the story of the War, and gives some insight into the interior workings of the Confederacy. Mr. Stephens possessed every facility for the work he has performed, and his story will be eagerly read. The work is sold by subscription only, and agents are wanted in every county.

A. WILLIAMS & Co., 135 Washington street, send us from the press of Harper & Brothers, Charles Dickens, the Story of his Life, by the author of the “Life of Thackeray.” It is exceedingly interesting, and gives much satisfactory information in regard to the great author. Recollections of Eton, by an Etonian, is from the same firm. It is an interesting description of college sports, and a narration of college experiences. The i llustrations are by Sidney P. Hall. Veronica is the last number of the Harpers' Library of Select novels.

LIGHTHOUSES AND LightSHIPS ; a Descriptive and Historical Account of their Mode of Construction and Organization. By W. H. Davenport Adams. New York : Charles Scribner & Co. This book is well worthy its place in the PublishersIllustrated Library of Wonders. The lighthouse, from the ancient pharos, with its fire of wood or coal, to the costly structures of the present time, with their powerful illuminating apparatus, records the triumphs of genius and marks the progress of the race. The very name has a sort of fascination. No wonder we have so attractive a volume. The illustrations, as in the preceding volumes of the series, are numerous and fine.

Robinson's Mathematics Again Endorsed.

ADOPTED IN CALIFORNIA.

After a successful trial for three years of ROBINSON'S MATHEMATICS in the Schools of San Francisco, this famous Series has been adopted, over great competition, for uniform use in the Public Schools of Californis. Thus from Maine to California ROBINSON takes the lead.

A NEW BOOK ADDED TO THE SERIES. FIRST LESSONS IN MENTAL AND WRITTEN ARITH

METIC.

This volume contains 180 pages, and is probably the handsomest Primary School-book yet issned. No expense, either in the drawing or engraving of cuts, has been epared to make its illustrations as attractire and use ful as possible. The idea, outside of the superior merits of the book itself, has been to make it a beautiful work in an artistic sense, and this the publishers think they have done. The methods of study are all original, and are intended to increase interest and decrease difficulties in teaching primary classes. Due prominence is given to methods of Object-Teaching without detriment to the Analytical, Progressive, and Inductive Systems. The book is intended for use in Primary classes where one book only is desired, and for this purpose it can have no equal. Now ready. Price, 40 cts. Liberal terms for introduction, and sample copies for examination.

From hundreds of testimonials, in regard to the high character and successful working of Eaton's series in the schools, we present the following: From Hon. John D. Philbrick, Superintendent of Public Schools.

Boston, Sept. 23, 1869. The use of Eaton's Arithmetics in all the grades of our public schools, during the past four

they have been subjected in the school-room has fully confirmed the opinion of their ments expressed by me some years ago. From C. Goodwin Clark, Esq., Master of Lincoln School.

Boston, July 9, 1889. After using your Arithmetics four years, I can sincerely indorse the testimony given to their merits. They have stood the test of use and criticism, and are now standard works on arithmetic. From A, P. Marble, Esq., Superintendent of Public Schools.

WORCESTER, Mass., June 15, 1869. Eaton's Common School Arithmetic has been used in the schools of this city with good success for several years. For a ciear statement of important principles, in connection with a sufficient number of fair test questions, and for the absence of all mere lumber, I do not know that it has a superior in the field which it covers, From A. P. Stone, Esq., Principal of High School.

PORTLAND, ME., July 6, 1989. I have examined Eaton's Arithmetic with considerable care, and am very favorably impressed with its merits. Its definitions, rules, and enunciations of principles are remarkably clear and comprehensive; and the explanations and examples are admirably adapted to illustrate the principles of the science, and to give the pupil an understanding knowledge of the subject. The work seems to me eminently philosophical and practical, and well worthy of use in the school-room. From H E. Sawyer, Esq., Principal of High School, and Superintendent of Schools.

MIDDLETOWN, Conn., Jan. 20, 1869. Eaton's Arithmetics have been used in the public schools in this city for nearly four years, and have given satisfaction generally to the teachers. The Primary and the Intellectual are well adapted to their purpose. The rules in the Common School are concise, the explanations clear, and the examples goud. It is probably one of the best books of its class and kind. From Prof. Wm. B. Graves, Instructor in Phillips Academy.

ANDOVER, Mass., Nov. 19, 1869. I have used Eaton's Algebra one term. It is entirely satisfactory in the class-room, My Impression is, that it is superior to any other elementary algebra

aterbury,

Eaton's Arithmetics are used exclusively in the public schools of the city of Boston; also used in whole or in part in the cities of Worcester, Lynn, New Haven, Bridgeport, Middletown, Meriden, Norwich, Newport, Dover, Bath, Biddeford, and Saco.

Eaton's Arithmetics have been adopted by the State Boards of Education of California and Nevada as the arithmetics for the schools of those States.

They are used very extensively in the cities and towns of Iowa, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and other states.
