Southern English Grammar.--The undersigned have now in press, and about the 1st day of September next will publish, a new Southern English Grammar, by the Rev. Allen M. Scott, D. D., late President of South Gibson College Tennessee. Dr. Scott is a Tennessean by birth and education, and he has been a practical teacher in various parts of the South and West for thirty years. He has made English Grammar a specialty, and, perhaps, has taught that science to more persons than any other in the Southern confederacy. The forthcoming work has been examined in Mss. by many critics, and in every instance pronounced to be eminently adapted to the purposes of school instruction. The rules are brief and comprehensive, the illustrations are numerous, and the notes just such as the student may need. The examples in parsing are mostly new, and the book will show on almost every page that it is a Southern work by a Southern author. We appeal to teachers and to all others interested in the cause of Southern education, to sustain us in this attempt to furnish school-books for our people. Let us have no more school-books or teachers from the North. Let our divorce from those fanatics who have grown rich upon our industry, and who are now seeking to subjugate us, be extended to our literature in all its departments. The price of the Grammar will be seventy-five cents. Liberal arrangements made to supply schools, &c., &c. Booksellers furnished at a liberal discount. We have also in preparation from the same author, a new speller.

Hutton & Freligh.
