My grandfather said nothing more, for several days about my governess.— But one day cousin Fred, asked me if I could read. This question, my grand father chanced to over hear, and it re vived his recollection upon the subject.— He again went over with grandmother the expediency of sending me away to school. But the latter still shook her head, and declared that it would never do n> think of such a thing. After that they both took tostudving the advertise ments in the newspapers. At length j cousin Fred, who entered with great in- j terest into the subject, lit upon the fol- ! lowirg. “ A young lady desires to obtain a j situation in a private family, as gover- j ness.

Cur Book,.Table. Juvenile American History; for Pri mary Schools', by Marcius Willson, author | of History of the United States, New York. | I visor. &. Phinuey. II.STORY OF THE UNITED STATES, flOlTl tilt; earliest discoveries to the present time AA'itli additions, containing history of the American provinces, history of Mexico, and the Constitution of the United States, with exp’anafory questions Same author and publishers. Outlines .of History : illustrated by nu merous geographical and historical notes and maps : embracing part 1, ancient his tory, part 11, modern history. Same author and publishers. A glance at the crowded catalogues of some of our school book publishers would convey the idea that wo, are the best instruc ted people in existence; and yet this multi plicity ot sclioo. books may be, ami we hum bly conceive is, tlie result of some radical defect in the minds of those who attempt to supply the educational wants of the conn try. It would be better for bo h teacher and pupil, if there were fewer of these edu cational works to select from, but as this i.- not the case, it become# us to examine such as come under our notice, carefully, before we recommend them. There are scores of school histories, in common use. each with its admirers ami apologists, and at the same time, its defects Peter Parley, in the main a very good old man, ami the author of numerous pleasant storieS iar children, bas set a bad example in the way of school books Ills histories are wonderfully popular, and the minds o hundreds of poor juveniles are every year crammed with a mass of specious knowledge, which leaves them in worse condition than it found them. AA'e arc opposed to all sim pHjieil school books, whose authors propose to make the path to learning so smooth M.a tlie veriest simpleton may walk in it without trouble. Such books should be tbrust oui of every school in the land : the true path to learning cannot be bordered with roses, no indeed should it be, for he who is not content to encounter and overcome its ddlieulties, does not deserve to enjoy the pleasures to which it leads. A\ e have carefully examined the books named at the head of this article, and have no hesitation in recommending them to the favorable notice of teachers. Mr. Wilson is evidently in love with his subject, and has devoted much time to its study. His June nile History is tlie best we have, examined Itiswri t -n hi good, pure English, am while it is suited to the comprehension of young persons, still leaves something to be Studied out. The author remarks truly that it is .. a serious error to cultivate in the young objectionable language, under tlie pretence that, they have been accustomed ?to it, and cannot understand any other.” There are a number of well executed and neatly color ed maps in the volume, which will be found useful to the pupil. The History of the United Stairs, for schools, is divided into four parts. The is a well written account of the various voy ages of discovery, made by Columbus, P< nai de Leon, Soto and others. Part second is devoted to our Colonial history ;• part third to the American Revolution, and part fourth to our National history from the adoption ot the Constitution to the beginning of .The present administration. In the appendix we i have very interesting histories in brief, ot j tlie Canadas, under the French and English, of Texas and Mexico, as well as the Consti tution of the United States, with explanato ry notes. Os the last named 1 and largest work of the three, we can say but little hero, as our no tice is already too long. Jt strikes us as being quite as good a compendium of An cient and Modern history, as we have seen In the departments of Grecian and Roman history, tlie author has, we learn from his preface, “ aimed to embody the results ot the investigations of the best Modern wri ters, especially Thirlwall and Grote in Grecian, and Niebuhr in Roman, and in both ancient and modern history, be has caretul ly examined disputed points of interest, with the hop-, of avoiding all important .attiqua ted err u s.” The analysis at the beginning of each chapter is a capital idea. The eigh teen beautifully colored-maps, to be found fit the close ol tlie volume, will prove a very useful convenience. The hooks are ail well l r nt ed and neatly gotten up.

AVe notice that many newspapers of our Stale aye-warmly favoring the repeal of the present Usury laws. Now we have never had ti single doubt about tlie correctness aml sound policy of these laws; we have al ways looked upon them as; a wield to protect ..the innocent, honest laboring classes, against the arts, deceptions rnd oppression of the bard hearted money holders. In other laws rest raining therich froni gr ud injj, thq poorrV . . -v Laws against Usury have existed in every commercial nation since the creation of the world. The great Jewish law giver, Moses, ferbade the taking of unlawful it terest Up on money. Tlie Republics of Greece and Rome, the wise provisions of whose laws we all admire, prohibited the taking of unjust find unreasonable interest. It is true, for a short time these Republican States had no laws against Usury, but tlie popular de mauds soon caused the enactment of wise provisions, protecting the poor against the exorbitant exactions of the rich AA'e would respectfully ask, what class of our p ople demand the repeal of the Usury ; laws? Is it the middle and working class? No. It is a movement gotten up alone by the unfeeling am! avaricious wealthy men, to enable them to take advantage of their unfortunate neighbors during the present ; hard times, and rob them of their homes I and impoverish their families It is an old | and true maxim, that the rich can protect j themselves, nnd it is one rs the first duties j of the Government to protect the poor. The j repeal of the Usury laws would not only in- j jure the unfortunate, however, but would j ruinously affect the laboring class general- j ly. by inducing money holders to let out ! their money on personal security, and retard ; and stop all works of internal improvement i Consequently, tlie demand for laborers would • be decreased, and the wages of tlus tiumer ons and • worthy ‘ class would be greatly; reduced. Toe repeal of these laws would prevent capitalists from embarking in pub lie enterprize#; by offering more profitable channels for increasing their wealth, and thus not only would all but the rich suffer, but the general wealth and prosperity of the State would be seriously affected. Now. our numerous Rail Roads are the c!iici'resour ces of State prosperity. Repeal our Usury laws, and our internal improvements, by private ent rprise, would suddenly stop. But we are told that England has re- : pealed her laws against Usury. Ah i Is j this a reason why we should do so? If in i England the lords and monied aristocrats should-repeal tlie last law for the protection of tlie poor, is it a proper example tor our Republican government to follow ? There the wealthy are masters, and the poor are slaves, cut here, thanks to the efforts of our. Revolutionary fathers, the dollar is not the controlling power. This effort- on the part of the Sivy locks of Georgia will fail and the people will mark the man who lends himself io effect this unjust scheme of the money holders. Talk about Georgia repealing the < Usury laws!— why it was only in 1842 , that our Legist;.!ore passed a statute giving greatei force and effect to these laws. The Usury laws are wise and l eiieficial in j their influence It is useless to urge that j they deprive men of the privilege of giving what per cent they please. The law does no L compel the borrower to plead Usury —it is a voluntary thing. If any man is willing to give a higher rate of interest than what s law, he incurs no penalty ; lie is at liber ty to do it. But don't annul the law L lias been tested for ages Wise and good law-givers have always acknowledged its correctness, and in our humble opinion; no borrower freely advocates its repeal. If these laws are repealed, money will be bor rowed at enormous ra;es of interest—the unfortunate debtor will promise any’ per cent to prevent the sheriff from selling his property. “We have ali seen how men will struggle to hold possession of property Bride and every’ other feeling of our nature 1 will induce men to give ruinous rates ot in terest, with some faint hope of relief, or sometimes merely to prolong the evil day. Few men make money hy paying unlawful interest, and many have been entirely ru ned in their pecuniary prospects, l>y r the uncor.soientie'us money lender. If our Usu ry’ laws were repealed,- the rich, who hold the money, would establish their own rate of interest, property would depreciate in value, and our prosperity as a State be ; greatly retarded. The capitalist would fat ten and grow rich upou Ihe wants and misfortunes of the poor. Others may do as they think best, but we shall -firmly and honestly oppose this attempt of the unscru pulous monied men of the State, to fatten upon the misfortunes of their neighbors. Prior to the borrower was forced to file a bill in Equity, to establish Usury by the answer of tile lender, the great expense of which p.r ceeding prevented the pleading of Usury in small amounts, and in that year ! an act was psssed enabling, tlie statute to be j plead in even the smallest cases Not only did the act of 1842 make the pleading more simple, but parties defendants are not now compelled to pay tlie principal debt, and lawful interest, before they can compel the j plaintiff to answer, as was the law before its ; pas-age Now tlie defendant, simply files his i plea of Usury, without paying either princi- ; pal or interest, and if the plaintiff fails to j answer, he has the right to establish the ! fact by bis own affidavit ns to tlie irutli ol Ills plea. The speculators and money len ders think that the present hard times will lavor the repeal of these laws- hence this sudden clamor of a portion of the press, who we fear, are pandering to tlie nod of the al- 1 mighty dollar. 1* d-k, urgeyjm'ffr'aavociite the repeal of the Usu- I country, or the purse-proud aristocracy ? It is argued by Jeremy Benthniu, mid other J hirelings of capitalists, that money should j be governed by the laws of commerce, the ! same ns property of every description ; that j there should ho no law regulating its value j any more than that of any other article of commerce. But these reasons, which may ; at first appear plausible, are incorrect.— | Money is different from everything else; it ; alone euu pay tuxes; its value is regulated . by the Government, and no man can do with- { out it-? whereas most other things oau be dispensed with. —. . i Aicomi any of colored Thespians is in success*ul operation in Cincinnati.

This is especially true now. for while cotton is unusually low, almost. every other article usually made on a cot ton plantation is unusual'y high, and like jly to remain so. Corn especially bears a very high price, with no prospect of an a biuemeut. The hbine conpiiptum cannot di minish. while (lie demand for export is all the time increasing.
