“It is the latest, as well as the best, and most complets work of the kind. ... The vast amount of information brought into such moderate dimensions, its simple arrangement, the general accuracy of statement, and, indeed, the nature of the whole compilation, are worthy of the highest commendation.”—Civil Service Gazette, August 7, 1869,

“ The friends of young men who wish to get an opening for them in the Civil Service, will find most serviceable the collection of information as to the appointments in each department.”—Economist, October 30, 1869.

“ It fappears that Mr. Johnston has been the first to tabularize the varions public offices, so as to bring before the reader at a glance the present position of a candidate who enters any of them, and, according to the usual course of events, what will be his future prospects.”—Public Opinion, October 23, 1869.

“A useful little publication, and contains much information respecting government offices, and mode of obtaining nominations, salaries, and other matters of interest to all who are in search of employment in the Civil Service."- Observer, August 8, 1869.

“A handy and compendious Civil Service Guide.”Daily News, August 21, 1869.

LONDON: LONGMANS, GREEN & CO.

From the nature of such a compilation as the present, which treats of such a great number of Public Offices, all of which differ from one another, sometimes in matters of importance, and sometimes in matters of mere detail, there evidently must exist inaccuracies, notwithstanding the most careful collection of statistics and the most painstaking correction of the press. On this account, I must earnestly entreat the kind forbearance of many of my readers, who, from a close connexion for several years with individual offices, kuow much more about those offices than I have given in the following pages. It is but right to mention, however, that I have been the first to tabularize the various Public Offices, so as to bring before the reader at a glance the present position of a candidate who enters any of them, and, according to the usual course of events, what will be his future prospects.

Such a treatise as the present could only be published after the Civil Service had been thoroughly organized, and almost ery office under Government brought under its regulations.

In order to make future editions as accurate as possible, I beg to solicit the kind assistance of gentlemen in the Public Service; and to those who furnish me (through the Publishers) with any important correction, I promise a copy of the edition of the book in which the correction appears,

R. JOHNSTON. August 3, 1869.

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.

a

The call for a Second Edition within a few months has more than met the most sanguine expectations of the Author, who will use every effort to make the present treatise as reliable as possible, by inserting any changes that may be carried out in the several Government departments as soon as they shall be officially published. From his position as one of the most experienced teachers for public examinations of all kinds, he hopes to secure the confidence of the public by supplying them with valuable information from his own experience in addition to that obtained from Blue Books, so that this treatise will be much more than a mere reprint of Government Returns.
