ne ever issued from the press; yet, even in her own State, Sander's, McGuffey's, Sargent's, Town's, and Parker & Watson's, have superseded it. The Arithmetics and Algebra of Col. Smith, of the Virginia Military institute, are allowed to remain on the booksellers' shelves, while Greenleaf, Davies, Colburn, Emerson, Day, Green, Heath, or Ray, is found in almost every school in the South and Southwest.

We could lengthen this list, but the few examples we have given (and we speak by the card) are sufficient to show that the labors of Southern educational authors have not received that reward which even Northern critics would be glad to see bestowed." The Record expresses the opinion, in which we heartily concur, that the rewards proposed in the Geor

Printers' ink. --Messrs. Taylor & Hargrove, who not long since established a printing ink manufactory at the corner of Adams and Leigh streets, in this city, have gotten the same in full operation, and are daily turning out fine specimens of blue, green, red and black printing ink. When the Yankees initiated the present difficulties, they feverishly imagined that the want of the above article would necessarily stop all the "rebel" presses between Maryland and the Rio Grande.
