American Watches

For Soldiers


American Watches for Americans!

THE AMERICAN WATCH COMPANY give notice that they have lately issued a new style of Watch, expressly designed for Soldiers and others who desire a good watch at a moderate price. These watches are intended to displace the worthless, cheap watches of British and Swiss manufacture with which the country is flooded, and which were never expected to keep time when they were made, being refuse manufactures sent to this country because unsalable at home, and used here only for jockeying and swindling purposes.

We offer to sell our Watch, which is of THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL MANUFACTURE, AN ACCURATE AND DURABLE TIME-KEEPER, and in Sterling Silver Cases, Hunting pattern, at nearly as low a price as is asked for the fancy-named Ancres and Lepines of foreign make, already referred to.

We have named the new series of Watches, WM. ELLERY, Boston, Mass., which name will be found on the plate of every watch of this manufacture, and is one of our trade-marks.

Sold by all respectable watch dealers in the loyal States.

Have just Published:

ROMOLA—A new novel. By the Author of "Adam Bede," &c. Numerous Illustrations. 8vo, Paper, $1.25; Cloth, $1.50.

"Romola is a performance of which no other woman of genius among us would have been capable than precisely George Eliot.—The Reader (London).

There are noble things to be found in "Romola," which will make the reader's heart burn within him. It will be scarcely possible to rise from the perusal without being penetrated by the "joy of elevated thoughts," without feeling a desire to cease from a life of self-pleasing, and to embody in action that sense of obligation, of obedience to duty, which is, indeed, the crowning distinction that has been conferred on man, the high gift in which all others culminate. This is high praise; and a work that can produce this effect, if only on a single reader, has not been written in vain.—The Athenaeum (London).

Such an intellectual study, to use an artist's phrase, as "Tito Melema," has not been placed before the world in this generation; and we know not which to wonder at most, the accuracy of the anatomical knowledge displayed, or the art with which that knowledge is infused—there is no other fitting word—into the reader's mind. Shakespeare might have exulted in Tito.—Spectator (London).

George Eliot has Sir Walter Scott's art for revivifying the past, but not Scott's dynamical force in making you plunge into it with as headlong an interest as into the present. For this she compensates by a deeper and wider intellectual grasp. * * It is marvelous that the wide and calm imaginative power of the writer should have produced a work which is likely to be permanently identified with English literature, in which Italy and England may feel a common pride. * * The great and concentrated interest of the book—at least after the wonderful development of Tito's character—is the portrait of Savonarola, which it is almost impossible not to feel as faithful as history as it is great as romance. * * His portrait evinces almost as great a graphic power, and far more scrupulous care, than Sir Walter Scott used in those pictures of the various Stewarts.—Spectator (London).
