British Hudson's Bay Company in tho

the same. and whi Wlave come to my

In the above named lense the Itusinn

which place. you probably are aware, the
Russians have a large settlement-the de

With the doincs of the Hudson's ly

by theat in Califorma will admit of my
saying a few words.
At Sun Francisco they have purchased

TO THE TE ICNEIt O' EDoEFIELD DISTRIer.
Genthmrn.-The great inconvenience. tou
ble and vexation, whirl teaehers in the coun
try. too often experience. from the inability of'
p..teni to preoiure uiatable books for their chil
chemn. call hamdly for a remedv. which I think is
in %on powi er to apply, and which I feel a%r.
ed %, ill meet the cordial approbation of every
pareit tm the i)istrict. who wishes his child pro..
perly aid weli instructed.
A merchaumt at Edgefield C. H . told the wriL
ter of thi article, tf-ut he was ah-ays at a loss
in purchaing school books; for almost every
teacher diff,-rod in his choice; the consequenco
of whichl i-. the merchant is ultimately left to
make his own selection. and not unfrequently
purcmases b mkm which are seldom called for,
and thereby sustaining a loss.
The remedy I would propose, is that the
teachers shomil meet in conveition at die Court
House, and there, after a' free conversation,
unite upon a cite-mce -l books for elementary in
striction to be uismd in die difr-renit %choolp. in
the district. The inerchint would then know
what books to purciase, and the almost certain.
ty -I* their sale. womuld induce min tm be well
supplied. .md the teacher he enabled to keep up
his clusse. witihout diiculty.
The almo'st natral consequence of a misce.
laneous selectoii of school books. is that the
teacher has frequently to make three or four
elaPs s. where t.ere Aiould be but one, therebv,
aihough imcreasing his own labors to a great
e,, tt. actually depriving his students ofa por
tion ot attention that could otherwi-e be be.
otowed. Every teacher in the country has pro.
heably experiencec! something like the follow.

vaIcm:d iearly alike, each brings a different
bok, or probably some finime at all. Here is
a I a-t lour times more titme consumed in
teaching these childien thm is necessary.
Another advantage likei to be derived fhom
such a iepmtie,-a. is the recotmmendation af a
iumber of books for fire-side reading, which
would probably induce the nerchants, or some
one. to keep a supoply. his,. at first view, may
