SMILEY'S ARITHMETIC, or the New Federal Calculator, in dollars and cents. This work contains, among other important improvements, Questions on the Rules and Theory of Arithmetic, which are considered by teachers generally, very conducive to the improvement of the pupil.
Although a prejudice exists among some teachers in favour of the old works on arithmetic, yet the very liberal patronage which this work has received, must be considered as decisive evidence of the great estimation in which it is held by most of the instructors of youth. Upwards of 250,000 copies have been printed and sold. The sums being altogether in dollars and cents, gives it a decided preference over any other arithmetic in use. The most distinguished teachers of our city pronounce it superior to any other like work; therefore the publisher sincerely hopes this useful improvement will overcome the prejudice that many teachers have to introducing new works, particularly those preceptors who wish to discharge their duty faithfully to parent and child.
The editors of the New York Telegraph, speaking of Smiley's Arithmetic, observe, . We do not hesitate to pronounce it an improvement upon every work of that kind previously before the public, and as such recommend its adoption in all our schools and academies."

The eminent Professor Bigelow, of Harvard University, in noticing this work, observes, “I am satisfied that it contains the fundamental principles and truths of that science. expressed in a clear, intelligible, and interesting manner. The high character of the author, as a lecturer, and a man of science, will, I doubt not, secure for the work the good opinion of the public, and cause its extensive adoption among seminaries and students."
The learned Professor Silliman observes, that this edition is decidedly more valuable than any preceding one.
CONVERSATIONS ON NATURAL PHILOSOPHY; in which the Elements of that Science are familiarly explained. Illustrated with plates. By the author of “Conversations on Chemistry," &c.
