The policy and practice of this company have been steadily to increase its financinl solidity, by which justly to command the oonfldence of the public. To this end all surplus premium receipts have been retnined, allowing the stockholders only legal interest on the assets. The interest on iis invested funda pays all dividends, leaving all surplus premiums for the additional security of the policy-holders. All we ask is that the people shall investígate for themselves, and we do not fear the result. FIUZER, HAURIMAJi & HAMILTOS, Office over tbe si íuiík Bank, 1476m6 Ann Arbor, Mich. Cpecial INotice!

'l'he moyuraent of poliücal aifair has kept pace with the disooveries of seience, and their fruitful application to the industrial and unet'ul arts and the convenience aud reiinemetit of social lite. Great wars and consequent revolutions have occurred, involYing national chancos of peculiar moment. The civil war of our own eouuti y, which was al its height v. hen the laéfr volume ot the oldwoik ftppeared,has happily been ended, and :i new course of commercial and industrial itctivity liatí been commenced. Largc accesaioii lo our géographioal knowledge have been made by the inflelatignble oxplorers of A fries. The great political rovolutions of the last decade, with the natural result of the lapse of time, have brought into public view a multitude of new men, whose names are in every one's mouth, und of whose lives every one is curious to know the particulars. iic;tt battlea have been foupht and important sienes niíiintained, of which thedetails are as yot preserved only in the newspapers or in the trausient publications of the day, but which ought now to take their place in permanent and autlmntichistory. In preparing the presest edition for tlie prees, it has aooordingly been the aim of the editws to bring down the information to the latest possible dates, and to fu'-nish au accurato account ot the most recent discoveries in science, of everv fresh production in literature, and of the newest inveutions in the practical arts, as well as to give a succinct and original record of the progress of political and historical events. The work has been begun after long and careful prehminary labor, and with the most ampie resouroeB tor carrying it on to a Buccessful termination. None of the original stereotype platea have been used, but every page has been printed on new tjpe, forming in fact a new Cyclopsedia, with the same plan and compasa as its predecessor, but with a far greater pecuniary e.tpenditure, and with such improvements in its compoaition íih have been suggested by longer experience and enlarged knowledce. Tlie illustrations which are introduced tor the flrst time in the present edition have been added not for the sake of pictorial effect, but to give greater lucidity and force to the explanations in the text. Thoy embrace all branches of science and natura] hi&tory, and depict the most famous and remarkable features of ecenery, architecture, and art, as well as the various proceaseu of mechanica and manufactures. Although intended for instruction rather than embellishment, no pains havo been spared to insure their artistic excellence; the cost of their execution is enormous, and it is believed they will flnd a welcome reception as an admirable feature of the Cyolopwdia, and worthy of ita high charaoter. TLia work is sold to Subacribers only, payable on delivery of each volume. It will be eompleted in sixteen large octavo volumes, each containing about 800 pages, fully illustrated with aeveral thousand Wood Engravings, and with numerou&coloredLithographic Maps.
