TOOK THREE YEARS' TIME TO ENGRAVE THIS
MAP.

Lloyd's Map of America

Is Now Ready.

Having been engraved on a new plan entirely, and printed and colored nicely on a Power Press, we can make and color it so low as to defy competition. The usual price of a Map of this size is from $5 to $8.

IT IS FOUR FEET SQUARE,

Printed on an entire sheet of strong white linen paper, and shows to the reader at one glance, from CANADA to TEXAS, and is acknowledged by all railroad men to be the most CORRECT Map ever offered to the people of this country, and is used by them altogether. To show how correct this Map is, we will just say that, on the 16th of May, the Alabama and Florida Railroad was opened from Pensacola to Montgomery, Alabama, and it is laid down correctly on our Map.

LLOYD'S RAILROAD MAP SHOWS EVERY RAILROAD IN RUNNING ORDER UP TO FEB. 1, l861. Every station and city is marked down on the roads, and the distance, between each station, and the total length of the road. Every River in America is traced out, and the Towns and Cities on the Ohio and Mississippi, and other Rivers, are marked down plainly. ALL THE FORTS, BATTERIES, and STRONGHOLDS IN THIS COUNTRY ARE LAID DOWN PROMINENTLY. The reader can see the situation of the NORTHERN and SOUTHERN STATES, and can comprehend at a glance the immense extent of territory owned by the South, which is washed by the sea for more than two thousand miles.

Company, which IS ALONE WORTH THE PRICE OF THE MAP.

30,000 CITIES, TOWNS, AND STATIONS ARE LAID DOWN ON LLOYD'S MAP.

A VALUABLE FEATURE.—On the back of the sheet on which Lloyd's Map is printed, is the name of each Railroad, its total length, cost of fare, where passengers breakfast, dine, and sup, and a sketch of every Town, City, River, and Fort; also an Historical Sketch, and the population of each place, from the last Census, and other reliable information of the latest date. This information will be of great value to every one at the present time, and is alone worth three times the price of the Map. The amount of information given on the back is equal to an octavo volume of 300 pages—information that can not be had elsewhere for $10—all for 25 cents.

A TIME INDICATOR is also inserted on the face of Lloyd's Great United States Railroad Map, allowing the difference in time at Washington, D.C., and the principal cities in this country and Europe. Thus, when it Is 12 o'clock, pm., at Washington, it is HALF PAST TWO O'CLOCK the following night at Jeddo, Japan—being 14 hours ahead of our time at Jeddo. Lloyds Map can be folded up and put away without creasing, or hung up on the wall. Agents will find that they can sell from 20 to 40 copies of the colored edition daily. It can be sent by mail, in strong wrappers, by the quantity, at ONE CENT per copy. Sending the Map by Mail does not injure it at all.

NO LICENSE IS REQUIRED TO SELL THIS MAP IN ANY STATE IN AMERICA.

As there is so much deception practiced on the public now-a-days by humbug Maps of the Seat of War, we have thought it advisable to submit evidence of the correctness of this Map.

HORRID GIRL.

MILD YOUTH. "What a very shocking thing this WAR is!"

HORRID GIRL, with extreme velocity. "Shocking! I don't think so, at all. Quite the contrary. I think it's splendid. I adore Soldiers. Brother GEORGE is in the Seventh, and WILLIE in the Ninth, and Cousin EDWARD in the Zouaves, and Cousin JOE in Col. DURYEE'S Regiment, and Cousin TOM'S going into the Regular Army, and we've all been making Havelocks for ever so many days, and Papa promises,

if I'm good, to take me to see the First Battle. Oh! won't it be delightful ?"    (Mild Youth is shut up.)
