A New Book. — We have received the first numbers of Rev. Joseph
W. Daily's History of Woodbricige, a work which will interest all reiridtuts
ot Midiliesex county, and become also a valuable book of reference. It is
j.^^sued ia weekly numbers at 25 cents each, and Mr. Jeremiah Dally, of
Woodbricige, is the anent to whom orders should be addressed. We shall
take occasion to refer to the work more fully at a future time. — Middlesex
Democrat.

The work alluded to in the above paragraph is being published at this
ofBce. It will be interesting to all residents in Central New Jersey. It is a
work highiy deserving of generous patronage. — New Brunswick [N. J.]
Daily Times.

History op Woodbridge and Vicinity. — We have receivetl .ur

first numbers of this work with the above title. It includes a 1. of

Piscataway, Metuchen, and otner places from the eailiest times, and L • ical
Sketches of different Ecclesiastical bodies, as well as important official doc-
uments relating to the township of Woodbridge, etc. We have lot had
time to examine the minor points, but so far as we have looked ovt 'he lour
numbers, we find them to contain much interesting and instructi\ matter.
—Perth Amboy [N. J.] Guardian.

Rev. J. W. Dally, formerly of Woodbridge, now stationed at Blooms-
bury, Hunterdon county, has been engaged in preparing for the press an
early history of Woodbridge and vicinity. The advance sheets show that it
cannot failto be of interest to every resident in this section of the State. It
is now in press at the Times office, and will make a volume of about 400
pages. Mr. Dally is a gifted and well educated gentleman, and has had
good opportunities for hunting up the old history of this section. This
volume will bring up the history to about the time of the revolution, the
author finding that to give the later history would make too much lor one
volume, and furnish material enough for an additional one, which he propo-
ses to proceed with. — Rahway [N. J.] National Democrat.

It is well printed in plain Roman type, and will be an interesting vol-
ume for our readers to possess ; for Rahway was for a long time closely
identified with Woodbridge township politically and geographically. — Rah-
way [N. J.] Advocate and Times.

Price, bound in a substantial and tasteful style, - $3.25.
Address all orders immediately to

JEREMIAH DALLY,

WoODBRrDGE, N. J.



Notice. — If the sale of " Woodbridge and Vicinity" is sufficiently re-
munerative, the author may soon venture upon the publication of a sicond
volume, bringiu'^ the history of the township down to the present time, in-
cluding the local events connected with the war of 181S, the recent war in
the South, &c'. ; together with a particular dcccripiiou of the business enter-
prises of the place.
