UNIFORMITY OP SCHOOL BOOKS.
The desirableness of a uniform
series of text books for the common
schools of any country is readily
admitted bv most teachers of ex
perience, and the wisdom of adopting
a uniform scries for use in all the
Government Schools of this "King
dom will scared' be questioned by
any one competent to form an
opinion in the matter. Some reasons
for uniformity were given in Mon
day's Advertiser ) and others might
be adduced; but discussion in sup
port of any. measure is quite un
necessary where there is such a near
approach to unanimity of opinion in
We arc not surprised to find that
the "views of our best teachers"
accord with those of the most ex
perienced and most successful modern
educationists in America, England,
and other parts of the world, and to
learn that "they unanimously ad
vised the Board to adopt a uniform
aeries of books in the fundamental
branches ;" but we arc not so ready
to endorse their recommendation of
"Swiuton's Series of Headers,
Monteith's Independent Geogra
phies, and Barnes' Series of Mathe
.matics, as among the latest and
best." No doubt, these arc ex
cellent books, and palpably superior
to most of those hitherto in use- in
our public schools ; but arc they the
bent extant and procurable ? They
may be. We do not say, do not even
insinuate, that they arc not ; for we
are not in a position to judge.
But are those teachers who have
recommended the adoption- of these
books in a much better position to
judge of their relative merits than
ourselves ? That is, have they had
opportunities of making themselves
acquainted with all the various' 'latest
and best series" of school books
published in America and elsewhere,
and having had such opportunities
have they made a careful and
thorough examination and compari
son of those various scries ? If so,
their recommendation is entitled to
suillcicnt weight to insure, at least,
favorable consideration by the
Board. But if, on the other hand,
this recommendation is uot the out
come of careful and thorough ex
amination and comparison, it is
hasty and should be received with
Great improvement has been made
in the quality and methods of school
books, within the, last three or four
yenrs past, and it can scarcely be
expected that teachers who have
been any length of time in this
country should bo fully conversant
with those improvements. In view
t of these facts, would it not bo wise
for the Board of Education to
procure samples of all the most
popular series, to bo examined,
compared, and reported on by a
committee of teachers, before decid
ing what series to adopt ? This, wo
think, would be the Bluest way of
determining which is the best and
the most adapted to the requirements
at this kingdom.

A friend who has lived in different
portions of Spanish America suggests
that it would be a good idea for the
Government to import swallows and
bats. He says that there the swallows
catch the mosquitoes in the day-time
and the hats do the same at night. To
these it would be safe to add the bird
popularly known in Europe as the goat
sucker which is also known to catch in
sects on the wing.
Some time ago, when Mr. Carter was

order to put a stop to these evil prac

unless they paid for the services of two
policemen to be constantly on the pre
misesone in each watch. In view of
recent events, it would advisable to
adopt the same plan.

INTER-COLONIAL NEWS j
NEW SOUTH WALE8.
An Inter-colonial Postal confer
ence lias been held in Sydney at
which the majority of the colonics
agreed to apply for admission inlo
the Postal Union. Other Rubjccls
were also discussed and nt one of the
recent sittings of tltc Conference
there came forward for consideration
the question of establishing federal
quarantine stations nt places on the
extreme borders of the Australian
Continent, as for instance at King
George's Sound at one cud, and
Thursday Island at another. At
these stations, it was pointed out,
steam vessels on their way to any
port in the colonics with disease on
board, could land their sick passen
gers or seamen, and in that way re
duce the time they would otherwise
have to remain in quarantine nt their
final port ; and nt the same time les
sen, if not entirely remove, the risk
of the disease spreading on "board.
The Conference agreed that it was
very desirable to establish such sta
tions, if it were practicable, and re
solved that steps should be taken to
give effect to the proposition.
An adventurous walk across the,
entire continent of Australia has
been completed by George Ernest
Morrison, a son of the priucipal of
the Gcelong College. Ho started
from the Gulf of Carpentaria, leav
ing Normanton the week before
Christmas. After passing Cloncurry,
he followed the course of the
Diamanlina and the Thomson, strik
ing the Bnlloo at Thuigomindah,
and the Paroo at Hungerford.
Following the Paroo through a
couutry inundated by the enormous
rainfall that characterised this
season, he encountered the most
dangerous part of his route, having
for nearly 350 miles to wade almost
daily considerable distances, and to
swim swollen ereeks. He crossed
the Darling at Wilcannia, the
Lachlan at Booligal, the Murruin-
bidgce at Hay, and the Kiver Murray
nt Echuca. The whole distance
traversed from the Gulf of Carpen
taria to Melbourne exceeded 2000
miles, and this was covered in 120
days. Passing through uninhabited
wastes, where-somctimes intervals of
over 100 miles intervened between
human habitations, he had to carry a
swug with provision and apparatus
for cookiug,' and this of course
materially impeded his rate of
travelling. He had to carry a supply
of water in some part of his route,
where water could only be found nt
very long intervals. Part of his way
led through a district inhabited by
hostile blacks, who, in revenge for
being so mercilessly bunted down
by the remote settlers, show little
mercy to any white man who comes
in their way. He walked every inch
of the distance alone and unarmed,
cooking for himself such provision
ns ho could secure by tho way, and
generally sleeping in the open air,
mufiled up in the blanket he carried
in his swag. Notwithstanding the
hardships he endured, he finished his
toilsome march iu robust health.
"Are you feeling very ill?" asked
the physician. "Let me see your
tongue, please." "It's of no' use,
doctor," replied the patient; "no
tongue can tell how bad I feel."
In Honolulu, Juno 5th, William Mor
iarty, aged 39 years. (Montreal papers
please copy.) The funeral will take
place at the Catholic Cathedral, this day
Wednesday, at 4 o'clock. Friends and
acquaintances arc invited to attend.
