mind giving you fifty for the job."

NOW READY. "SECOND YEAR OF THE WAR."
By E. A. POLLARD, Editor of RICHMOND EXAMINER,
And Author of "FIRST YEAR OF THE WAR."
1 vol. 8vo, 400 pages, Cloth $2.00. With Portraits on Steel, recently taken, of
Vice-Pres. STEPHENS, Generals
LONGSTREET, HILL, BRAGG and JOHNSTON. PLANS OF BATTLES.
This volume brings the History of the War, from a Southern view, down to the
close of the late invasion in July of Pennsylvania. Written with clearness, independence, and ability, and,
as the only connected account of all the civil, military, and naval operations
in the South, it is of great importance and interest. It gives a thrilling
narrative of campaigns which were filled with interesting incidents and
brilliant action. The first edition of 5000 copies has been entirely taken up in advance.
Therefore the Publisher would request the Trade to order early. C. B. RICHARDSON, Publisher, 506 Broadway, N. Y.
FINE WATCH FREE,
And $15 Per Day Easy.
Agents should be careful in directing their orders for our Original and
"only Genuine" Extra Large Size Stationery Prize Packages, which have
become so popular through the fine quality and value of their contents. As we
have several imitators, who copy our Styles, Advertisements, Premiums, &c., for
the purpose of deceiving Agents, we
are the only manufacturers of the "Celebrated
Rickards Prize Packages," and none are genuine unless bought direct from
us. Those parties who advertise to give a "Premium
Watch" to agents will not do so unless
the agent first pays them from $40 to $50 in cash. This "we challenge any
of them to deny." We will present a case of 100 of our Finest Packages to any
agent who obtains a watch from them without first paying the above-named amount.
Their attempt to present premiums, after our long-established custom, is in this
case but a poor dodge. We still do as we have done for years past,
present free to every one who acts as our agent a Fine Gold or Silver
Hunting-Case Watch, "Genuine English
Movements," and warranted a correct time-keeper. These watches are
presented on the spot or sent
with the first order. No one else does this. Our Wonderful Packages contain more
really valuable articles than any half dozen others ever sold. Among the
surprising contents of each package will be found Fine Stationery, Pens,
Pencils, Envelopes, Ladies' Fashion Plates, Designs for Needle-work, Cottage
Keepsakes, Household Companions, Letter-Writer's Instructor,
Parlor Amusements, Gent's
Pocket Calendars for 1864, Union Emblems, Camp Companions for Soldiers,
Military Likenesses, Games, Army Advice, Rare Recipes, Many Ways to get Rich,
Yankee Notions, Fancy Articles,
Rich and Costly Presents of Fashionable Jewelry, &c., &c., all together
worth many dollars, for only 25c. Agents make immense profits. 100 to 200 per
cent. allowed. We guarantee smart agents can make $15 per day. Our regular
agents average that. Our Packages stand same as
ever, above all others for quality and quantity of contents. Agents
wanted in every camp and town in the country. Goods sent safe to all parts of
the army. Send for our Great New Circular for 1864, containing Extra Premium
inducements, free. S. C. RICKARDS & CO., 102 Nassau St., N. Y. Only Original,
