YALE-COLLEGE, Nov. 27, 1799. I HAVE read DaBoll's ScHOOIMASTER'S ASSISTANT. The arrangement of the different branches of Arithmetic istjudicious and perspicuous. The author has well ex- ' plained Decimal Arithmetic, and has applied it in a plain and elegant manner in the solution of various questions, and especially to those relative to the Federal Computation of money. I think it will be a very useful book to Schoolmasters and their pupils.

RHODE-ISLAND COLLEGE, NOV. 30, 1799. I HAVE run through Mr. DABOLL'S SCHOOLMASTER'S Assistant, and have formed of it a very favorable opin- . ion. According to its original design, 'I think it well “ calculated to furnish Schools in general with a method. ical, easy and comprehensive System of Practical Arith metic." I therefore hope it may find a generous patra age, and have an extensive spread.:
