ERRATA.-In a part of the present edition, the following errors occur, which, should be corrected to read as follows:

Page 30, 31th line from top, for “fifty," read “sixty."

Page 83. Note. Instead of “It adopted a constitution, Oct. 29, 1819, and was admitted to the Union by an act of Congress on the 15th of March, 1820," read

was organized as a Territory March 2, 1819, and was admitted as a State, June 15, 1836."
