THE UNION MEMORIAL; containing Choice Anecdotes, Patriotic Songs, and

Burning Words, struck from true American hearts. This little work contains 72 pages, closely printed, on fine paper, with a neat and appropriate cover. It contains nearly THREE HUNDRED ANECDOTES, Songs, &c., representing the unanimity of feeling, with which our people responded to the call of their country in the hour of danger. When rebellion is crushed and the Union no longer in danger, the sayings and incidents here recorded will be cherished as menentoes of the patriotism of our people and their devotion to their country in the hour of danger.

in regard to the publication of periodicals, is in substance as follows:

Subscribers who do not give express notice to the contrary, are considered as wishing to continue their subscriptions.

If subscribers order the discontinuance of their papers, the publisher may continue to send them till all arrearages are paid.

If subscribers neglect or refuse to take their papers from the office to which they are directed, they are held responsible till they have settled the bill, and ordered the paper discontinued.

If subscribers remove to other places, without informing the publisher, and the paper is sent to the former direction, they are held responsible.

The courts have decided that refusing to take a paper from the office, or removing and leaving it uncalled for, is prima facia evidence of intentional fraud.

SUBSCRIBERS WILL THEREFORE UNDERSTAND that their papers will be continued after the expiration of the time for which they have paid, unless otherwise ordered.

That no paper will be discontinued until arrearages are paid, unless we are satisfied that the subscriber is worthless.

Bacon's Sabbath School Service Book

Has been the established Service Book in the Universalist Denomination for many years. Over TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND copies have been sold. The superiority of this book over all others consists in the variety and number of Special Services, the simplicity of language, the variety of muric, and the appropriateness of the responses. There is nothing published that is equal to it. It is sold at the low rate of $2.50 per dozen.


of every kind suitable for Universalist Sabbath School Libraries, constantly on hand. Particular care is taken to select such books as are not objectionable to Universalists generally, and the largest assortment of Juvenile Books in Boston can be found at this store.

Universalist Societies and Sabbath Schools in all parts of the country will find it to their advantage to send directly to Boston for Library Books, as they will be sure to secure the RIGHT KIND of books, and at such low prices as will more than remunerate them for the cost of transportation. Perfect satisfaction warranted in all cases.

1st. A catalogue of books already in your Library. 2d. The sum to be expended.

3d. The average age of the Scholars for whom the books are intended. Where volumes are desired for Teachers' Library or Department, let this fact be stated, and the books will be selected accordingly.


Twenty or thirty good responsible men wanted in various parts of the country to sell Universalist publications, and to canvass for the “ Ladies Repository,” to whom liberal discount will be made, by which an active, energetic man can make money.
