Providence Evening Press Establishment.

NO. 24 WESTMINSTER STREET,

(JONES BUILDING,)

PROVIDENCE.

COOKE & DANIELSON, proprietors of the above establishment, invite an increase of the favor already extended to them as the publishers of

1. THE PROVIDENCE EVENING PRESS,

The largest daily newspaper in the State, and the only evening paper published in Rhode Island. It always has the latest telegraphic news, the same as contained in the Boston papers received in Providence several hours afterward. City and State intelligence will be found copiously set forth in its columns. Its general news and miscellaneous interesting matter in great abundance give it an additional passport to public favor. Its editorial conduct is strictly upon independent principles. Two editions of this handsomely printed journal are published daily.

THE EVENING PRESS is furnished to subscribers at the very low price of $6 per annum, payable in advance for any time desired. It is served in any part of the city at twelve cents per week, to such as prefer a weekly arrangement. Single copies, two cents each, may be procured at the office, at the news depots, and of the newsboys.

THE EVENING PRESS is a very valuable medium for advertisers, and both yearly and transient advertisers will be dealt with liberally.

2. THE RHODE ISLAND

PRESS,

Which is equalled in size by only one other weekly Rhode Island paper, contains a very large amount of reading matter, and is suphlied to subscribers at the cheap rate of $1.50 per year, payable in advance. Ten copies will be sent to one address for a year for $10. Single numbers, three cents. Only a limited number of advertisements will be received for this paper, the advertisers in which will find their interest promoted by an arrangement with respect to it.

3. THE RHODE ISLAND SCHOOLMASTER.

BOOK AND JOB PRINTING.

The Proprietors of this establishment confidently invite the patronage of the public in connection with their Book and Job Printing Department. They are prepared to execute all kinds of letter press printing with NEATNESS, CHEAPNESS and PROMPTNESS. No pains will be spared to make it to the interest of their friends to transact business of this kind with them.

EDUCATION: INTELLECTUAL, MORAL AND PHYSICAL,

BY ROBERT SPENCER,

Essays, Scientific, Political and 2. Intellectual Education, 3. Moral Ed

Author of "Social Staties," "The Principles of Psychology," and ***
Speculative." 1 vol. 12 mo. Cloth $1.
CONTENTS: 1. What Knowledge is of most worth
ucation. 4. Physical Education.

From E. L. Youmans.

It is by far the ablest book that I have seen upon its subject. Mr. Spencer ranks among the foremost of the philosophical thinkers of Europe, and brings to the discussion of educational questions the largest and latest results of scientific inquiry. His profound investigations in the domain of mind and life, his acute analysis of the growth of the intellectual and emotional powers, his clear percep tion and luminous statement of first principles, admirably qualify him for the treatment of this great subject, and the performance is worthy of his reputation. It is not only masterly in exposition, but clothed in a style combining the precision of science with the finest graces of literary composition. The truths of this little volume should sink deep into the hearts of parents, teachers, and school directors."
