HON. JOHN D. PHILBRICK,
SUPERINTENDENT OF THE BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
The Publishers would invite the attention of School Officers and Teachers to this valuable contribution to the means of elementary instruction.
The Set comprises Twenty Tablets, mounted on ten cards, twenty-one by twenty-seven inches. Each of these cards, containing two Tablets, is complete in itself, and may be used independently of the others. The plan is original, and supplies a want which has been felt very generally by teachers in elementary schools.
These Tablets are especially adapted to the use of all Primary and ungraded District Schools. Some of them are also adapted to the lower classes of Grammar Schools, and to Intermediate Schools. By means of these Tablets, the teacher is enabled to instruct a whole class or a school at the same time; and can sometimes accomplish in an hour what would require days of individual teaching. In connection with the slate and the blackboard, these Tablets afford important facilities for oral teach Where these tablets are in use, there ing, which experience has proved to be indispensable to the highest success in elementary instruction. Children love variety, and they must have it in school. will be little or no occasion for the use of text-books during the first six months of the child's schooling.
They have been prepared with great care by a practical educator, who has made the subject of elementary teaching a study for years, and who has brought to their preparation precisely those qualifications which are requisite for such a task.

SARGENT'S ORIGINAL DIALOGUES:
A Collection for School and Family Reading and Representation.
Author of the Standard Speakers, the Standard Readers, Spellers, &c.
The few original Dialogues that Mr. Sargent has published having attained a rare popularity and been in extensive demand for School Exhibitions, &c., Mr. S. has yielded to the solicitations of many of our most eminent teachers in all parts of the country, and consented to prepare the new collection which we here announce. It forms a handsome large duodecimo of 336 pages, with a fine portrait of the author, engraved on steel, and with wood-cuts representing appropriate attitudes in dialogue delivery. Price, $1.00. The usual discount to the Trade.
On receipt of one dollar, a copy will be sent, postage prepaid, to any teacher or pupil.
From the National Intelligencer,
The dialogues are eminently adapted to representation; vivid, full of action, with characters well discriminated, and language never bordering on coarseness.
From the New York Home Journal.
The best collection of dialogues in the language. It ought to be introduced into every school in the country where elocution is taught.
From the Chicago Democrat.
A book worth having, It is written in excellent style, and calculated to delight all intelligent boys and girls.
From the Gardiner, (Mc.) Home Journal.
Will be a favorite in every academy, high school, grammar school, or county school-everywhere where boys are boys." It is decidedly the best collection of dialogues for youthful representation that we have ever examined.
From the Boston Post.
These dialogues seem to be immensely popular with the boys. The book reached a third edition before it had been out ten days.
From the Manchester (N. H1) Mirror.
Many a weary search have we had in our school days for just such a book as this.
Sargent's dialogues are not only such as the young will read and recite with the keenest interest, but they are of a character to delight an audience, and to bring out the elocutionary talents of the speakers,
SARGENT'S STANDARD READERS, CHARTS, &C.
Sargent's Standard Series of Readers is now the leading Series used in the Eastern States, and in most of the principal cities of the Union, and comprise five carefully graded Readers, a Primer, and two Spelling Books.
These Readers have met with unprecedented success; more than five millions of copies having already passed into schools. Their points of superiority are:- 1. The appropriate character of the reading matter, and the great care evident in the preparation. 2. The drilling exercise, and the simple system of reference, by which accuracy in pronunciation is secured. 3. The Explanatory index, by which difficult words are explained, and a taste for etymology is inculcated 4. Superiority in the careful graduation of the several Readers to different capacities; ease and simplicity being studied, and the labors of the teacher much lessened. 5. Superiority in the mechanical execution, paper, binding, &c., and, in the smaller books, in the wood-cuts. 6. In the Speller a scientific classification of words, with Dictation Exercises, combining all the modern improvements. The present publisher devotes his whole time exclusively to the manufacture and sale of these works. He has paid especial attention to the printing and binding, which have been greatly improved under his charge. The sales are constantly increasing.
The testimonials as to the superiority of Sargent's Readers are so numerous, and from such high quarters, that we must refer Committees and Teachers to the pamphlet containing them, which may be had gratis, and postpaid, on application to the publisher.
Copies of the Readers will be furnished gratis to School Committees and Teachers, who are desirous of examining the same, with a view to introduction into schools, on application to the publisher. Or they will be sent by mail, prepaid, when the amount of postage is sent in stamps.
