schools country . will Wkether ultimatel the y tend strong to infusion the adoption of secondary by the State subjects of in the the control syllabus , or of at the least priman of the j 1
supervision , of the instruction of the middle and lower middle classes of the population I remains to be seenbut even a = 3 mattera stand , higher subjects are generally taught , and are re- I
warded with a Government , grant . The natural result of this process of levelling-up has been I such a general raising of the educational platform that a complete change has come over our I
school literature , and men of high intellectual capacity , and of the foremost rank in the world I , of books , are devoting ^ J their energ + m ^ ies to meet the demand which the movement has created - ~ -mm for av | j « i ^ k _~ ^ k ^^^^^^^ h ^^ k ^ n ^ B ^ K A H ^ M ^ ft > ^ A ^ B
works of a superior ^ class . What was formerl ^^ y supplied orally by the pedagogue is ^ now given ^ I in a large number of instances in the introductions and notes which form a feature in nearlI
all the popular text-books , until it is literally true that the school-boy has in his locker what y I was formerly the privileged possession of the master's library . Whether the wearers of the I
f toga altogether approve of this entrustment of the sharpest weapons to what are often unskilled I hands is open to questionbut the effect must be to call forth from the teacher an exhibition I
I of higher power , from the , simple fact that the scholar is already supplied with the aid which I I men of the highest attainments have placed within his reach . Notes which twenty years ago I

of its books , the country at large is still iri favour of free trade in this important matter , and ] of that healthy competition to the existence of which the rich assortment of works hereafter 1
named bears witness . 1 When we find houses of ancient fame and modern excellence sustaining their reputation , I
and the younger all eagerly inviting the attention of governing bodies , School Boards , and I I head masters for their spteicdites , the character of the literature provided for our colleges and j I
I schools is virtually placed above criticism , and although doctors will still continue to differ , as I they have ever differed , on method and style , the single aim of author and factor is to give the j I
