"History" is out of print. Three thou

edition-ard already sold; ~iid a second
edition-it is said ani iinproved one-is

man, for an annuity of ?000 for that
period. If poetry be down in market
value, history is, it seems, up. "The
Row" and Alber~marle street would
,owv probably r'turn "Paradise Lost"
without looking att it-so that Simmnons'
-?5 wvas, after all, a liberal sum for an
epic poem, whlen we contrast 1848 with
1607. Hlume made very little by his
"History;" but Smnollett made ?2,000
ni a very short .timeo-and( his work is
said to have solil to the theci ainazing
exteint of 10,000 copies. It wvas time
that iaistory' should have a turn.
Mr. Hal lain's historical works have,
it is true, sold well;, but Carter strug
gled hopelessly against want--and Sir
Harris Nicolas, whose whole life was
dedicated unremittingly to the illustra
tion of English' history, had just passed
from amongst us in circumstances too
painful to describe. Our writers should
learn, howvever, (and there are exam
ples enough already to have taught
them) that the mere heaping together
of facts, the dry dis[,lay, as it were, of
antiquarian diligence, has but slender
charms for the general reader. Tfhe
labcors of Carte and Nicolas are-like
the drawings of great masters-of use
only to students. The multitude look
for color and coraposition, and for that
skill which can 'ven make dry bones

EXAMINATION DAY.-The Seienee
of a schioolexamination is v'ery prettily
explained by a schoolmaster's ameedote.
A country school-teacher, preparing
for an exhibition of his school, selected
a class of pupils, and wrote down the
questions and answers to questions that
he would put to them on examination
The day came and with it came the
hopefuls, all but one. The p)upils took
their places as had been arranged, and

A SHREwD REPLY.---A young

annuation for admission to the bar.

pretty closely, but the candidate was
never at fault. Finally, the Judge

that a Boston importer should come to

Judge wont on to state one of the most
complicated questions that arise in re

poser. Our friend, intending to prac

up" on this topic. But he was a Yan
kee, and he never was at a loss for an
answer. So soon as the Judge had
summed up his case, and closed off with
tho inquiry, "What would you say?"
Our friend promptly replied, "I shotuld
