EXTKACTOP A LtTTEK FROM HON. WlLLIAM JAY
to thk Author. " Your analysis of the slave laws
is very able, and your exhibition of their practical
application by the southern courts, evinces great
and careful research. Your book is as imprernable
against the charge of exaggeration as Euclid's Ge
ometry, since, like that, it consists of propositions
and demonstrations. The book is not only true, but
it is unquestionably true."

after the tickets have all been disposed of.
The undersigned would impress upon persons de
sirous of embarking in this truly Magnificent and

The Magazines will be promptly mailed to any ad
dress desired from the publication offices. Again
we would say, send in your orders early, designating
which of the Magazines are ordered.
It may seem rather incredulous that we should
undertake to supply the Magazines at the regular
subscription price and still afford to make so many
valuable Presents; but we would remind the reader
of the old adage, that Union is Strength,' there
fore by combining the strength of One Hundred
inousana subscribers to the popular Monthlies ot
the day, and making a special contract with the
Publishers for a large number of their publications,
wo are enabled to do what we propose. This is the
secret of our Enterprise. Do you think well of the
project ? Will you give us your order ?

Tickets will be promptly notified what Presents
