The Publishers of the AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL MONTHLY would respectfully announce that they will soon begin the publication of a masterly paper on the “ Physical Geography and Productions of the United States,” by Professor Arnold Guyot. It will occupy a part of several numbers of the Monthly, and will be illustrated by beautiful and accurate miniature maps, furnished for this special purpose by the eminent publisher of Professor Guyot's works. We need not assure our readers that this series of articles will prove highly interesting and valuable to every intelligent person in the United States.
A gentleman of high reputation in the educational community is preparing for our Monthly a "History of the Schools of New York.” He will trace the progress of schools in this city from the rection of the first school-house on Manhattan Island to the magnificent completeness of our present system.
In view of the great importance of our primary schools, and of the pressing need of improvement in the mode of conducting them, we shall give to the subject a liberal share of space in our columns. The first article of a series, by a lady occupying a high position in one of our training schools, and eminently qualified, in respect to literary and experimental attainment, will appear in our next.
Our March number will appear in neat colored covers. Our artist is now preparing a suggestive design for the first page. Nothing shall be spared to make this, in every respect, a first-class Monthly, and we are determined to make every educated man and woman in America recognize its merits.
Every page will be stereotyped, so that back numbers may be obtained when required.
This number will be sent to some persons who have not subscribed for it. All who may receive it are respectfully invited to become regular subscribers.
Arrangements bave been made with Messrs. F. A. Brown & Co., No. 1 Cornhill, Boston, Mass., to aid us in forwarding the interests of the Monthly in New England. They will take subscriptions and advertisements upon our regular terms, and their receipts will be binding upon us.
The “ EDUCATIONAL DIRECTORY," begun some time ago, now contains about 75,000 names. For these we are greatly indebted to our many kind friends and correspondents. But in many localities our lists are incomplete. Hence we beg all who may read this notice to send us the names of all the Teachers in their region. The names in full, with full P. O. address, should be distinctly written. Also indicate the rank of each Teacher, whether Principal or Assistant—whether in Public or Private School. Superintendents' Reports, Catalogues, and all documents containing lists of names and educational items, will be very acceptable. The names of Trustees, School Officers, and of all persons who are interested in the cause of education, will be valuable to us, and we shall be glad to receive them. When completed, this Directory will prove invaluable to Teachers, and to all who are interested in Teachers.
Persons who are disposed to aid us in this great work, by sending the names of fifty live educators may secure the Monthly for half price-fifty cents per annum.
