This is the leading Educational periodical of the country. The matter it contains is of the highest character of world wide interest.- Michigan Journal of Education, Jan. 1857.

No educational periodical has ever been published in this country, and, as far as we know, in any other, combining so many desirable qualities. With the profoundness of a review, it unites the popular element that adapts it to universal reading, while its statistics are invaluable for reference. -- Providence R. I., Journal for Jan. 13th, 1857.

This Journal does honor to our state and country. It contains the latest intelligence on the subjects upon which it treats, and is fresh and vigorous like the former numbers. It is invaluable to teachers and educators.- New London, (Conn.,) Chronicle, Jan, 1857.

With our knowledge of the Editor, we were prepared to expect much from the peri. sal of the volumes (I and II,) but we have looked through the pages, with a constantly increasing adiniration of the variety and ability of the articles, the accuracy of the statistical information, and the wide field of discussion which is open to this periodical. We do not wonder the Westminster Review says there is nothing in England that will compare with it. And the North American Review says this is the highest educa. cational authority as to systems tested abroad, or improvements necessary at home, which this country will have. — Northwestern, (Chicago,) Home Journal, for Jan. 1857.

The last, (7th,) number contains an amount and variety of matter which must commend the work to all who may examine it.- Providence Transcript for Jan. 1857.

This is the great educational work of the country. - Southern Recorder, Villedgeville, Ga. Jar. 1857.

This number, (7,) more than comes up to the expectation of its warmest friends, and is alone worth the year's subscription.--State Republican, (Lansing, Mich.)Jan. 1957.

It fully realizes our expectation of what a Journal of Education should be.- Gazette. (Janesville. Wis.,) for Jan. 1857.

It embraces a wide range of educational subjects, and is written in the language of tre scholarship. There is no educational periodical in this country that can approach it in point of ability and reliability,--we doubt whether it has a superior in any country,--and as it marks a new era in this kind of literature, we wish it the greatest possible success.-- Evening Argus and Democral, (Madison, Wis.,) Jan. 1857.

It is an ably conducted periodical.-- Jeffersonian, (Bangor, Me.)

It is a noble undertaking, and of all living men, MR. BARNARD, is best able to ac. complish it in a satisfactory manner.— Vermont Chronicle, (Windsor,) Dec. 23d, 1856.

This Journal occupies a broader field than the local School Journals. Its scope is more comprehensive than anything that has hitherto been attempted even in England, and we have no sear in pronouncing the number, (7,) before us, a model specimen of wtrat a first-class educational periodical should be. --- Mining Register, (Pottsville, Penn.)

The Journal of EDUCATION ranks with the ablest Quarterlies of this country or of England, and its columns possess a general interest in all departments of literature that will make it generally popular.- Valley Spirit, (Chambersburg, Penn.)

Teachers who desire to perfect themselves in their high calling, can find no more effectual help than the AMERICAN JOURNAL OF EDUCATION.-- Independent Repreblican, (Montrose, Penn.)

Emphatically a JOURNAL OF EDUCATION, it is the best we have seen. The articles are varied, interesting, and valuable ; while the statistics alone given througb the year, are fully worth the price of subscription. New Hampshire Gazette, (Portsmouth.)

In paper and printing it is equal to the best Monthly and Quarterly periodicals of the day. Its contributors are among the best writers and educators of the country.- Ohio State Journal. Jan. 6th, 1857.
