THE COMMON SCHOOL SPELLER, by Wm. B. Fowle, recommended by Hon. Horace Mann, in his Lecture on Spelling Books, and in “ The School and Schoolmaster," by Geo. B. Emerson and Dr. Potter. It is used in Salem, Newburyport, Portsmouth, Portland, Bangor, Providence, Cambridge, Lynn, Springfield, and hundreds of other towns.

Mr. Mann says of this Speller : “In such lessons as these, scholars will very rarely spell wrong. They can go through this Spelling Book twenty times while they go through a common Spelling Book once, and each time will rivet the association, and make of habit an ally of unconquerable force."

The peculiar excellence of this Spelling Book consists in its perfect classification of all the words, so that the pronunciation as well as the orthography is easily acquired. No Spelling Book in this country ever had so rapid an introduction. The accurate classification renders the usual methods of marking sounds, which mar other Spelling Books, unnecessary, and so diminishes the number of irregular words that they almost disappear.

Reference Books for Teachers' Libraries, The Superintendent of Public Schools in the City of Boston, in his report for 1852, makes the following remarks with relation to Books of Reference for Teachers :

“Teachers, like gentlemen in other professions, need a few suitable books of this class always at hand; for they cannot carry all the mi. nute details of the different branches taught in schools in their minds always ready for use, any more than well-read Lawyers, Physicians, or Clergymen can respectively carry all their professional learning with them, ready to meet all emergencies. All persons who know where and how to look for such information as they want may be considered well educated, in the professional sense of the term.

“There is wanted in every Grammar School a collection of such works as would make, when all taken together, one Comprehensive Dictionary on the subjects connected with school studies. This Library of Books of Reference need not at first contain more than_forty or fifty volumes, embracing such works as the American Enclycopædia, McCulloch's Geographical Dictionary, Brande's Dictionary of Science, Literature, and Art, Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities, with a Universal Biographical Dictionary, and a good Atlas of Ancient and of Modern Geography. These few books would render great assistance to the Teachers and the Scholars, in their respective labors.” Encyclopædia Britannica (now publishing), in 21 vols. Subscription price,
