AMERICAN JOURNAL OF EDUCATION.
To Subscribers for 1867:
The constant pressure of engagements connected with his withdrawal from the presidency of St. John's College, and with the organization of the Department of Education, together with a reluctance to announce the suspension or abandonment of the publication of a periodical whose whole aim and scope . were in harmony with his present plan of operations as Commissioner of Education, and at the same time his conscious inability, in addition to his new labors, without essential help both in the business and editorial work, to comply with the urgent requests of many old subscribers to continue the publication until the whole field of systems, institutions and methods had been surveyed as was originally contemplated, -has, up to this time, prevented the undersigned both from issuing the numbers for March and June, and from making any explanation of the causes of the failure, or of his intentions for the future. He is now able to say that under the special management of Professor D. N. CAMP, as proprietor and publisher, and the general direction of its former editor, assisted by a large number of prominent teachers and educators in different parts of the country, the publication of the Journal will be continued.
