Mnnstso Session-. Mr. Peimoyer from
the coniinittee on text books, made the fol
lowing report:
The committee to whom was assigned
the duty of presenting to the Association
a suitable list of text-books, for the purpose
of having said Association recommend sni-h
list fur general adoption in the schools
throughout the entire State, ben leave to
report that, notwithstanding the very brief
time allotted them, they have united upon
a list for which they usk the respectful
consideration of this body. Your com
mit teo believe that there is no one subject
relntinj to tho schools of this Stnte which
needs it more careful consideration than
that of a complete uniformity of text-books.
Every temdicf has experienced the very
great disadvantage under which both his
pnpils and himself have labored, nnd by
having n diversity of tt-xt hooks iti school,
nd hy having some of the pnpils forced,
fter a short advancement in one book, to
adopt another, which, with its different
phraseology ond peculiarities, is nlono cal
culated to confuse nnd discourage. The
committee sincerely regret that there is not
present at this time a larger number of the
Ulehcrs of the State, so that their opinions
an be ascertained in relation to the value
of the different books used in our schools,
and so that, nftcr a careful canvass of the
merits of the same, n uniform list could be
designated and generally adopted. In
viw, therefore, of the limited
opan the sitting of this body, they would
not be prepared to advise a recommenda
tion of the list proposed by them nnless
'he Association were generally agreed
thereto, but would advise, in case snch gen
eral assent could not be obtained, that the
matter bo postponed until our next annual
meHii;g. TJiit, liojifug" that a general "
Siieseence will be given nt this time, the
committee respectfully submit the following

Davis & Co. are already beaten nnd de

they will not give us battle in this war.
Tho gong they beat, so loud at tho be
ginning, is, like Tarn's harp, hung up alto
gether, uml those who smote it in the name
of terror, will soon address themselves to
peace. According to the juMice und the
mercy of our Government, will bo the
peace they get. Put it must come, and
come according to our terms; nye, before
n year goes uronnd. I hardly think, now
that we have "started in" with such good
will, it is desirublu to end the contest much
before. Our nrmy nud navy ought to be
completed, and it will have a wholesome
effect for us to make n full dress parade be
fore the world. The sensitive need not
shrink. The campaign will not by any
means be bloody. With the ports shut,
uud the very atmosphere sealed against the
conspirators by n continually closing circle,
we can let Uiotn co l uml tester among

was three cents, ami over 3,000 miles, ten
cents. It was aseei laincil alter the South

tiun, that the three cent .stump would cover
a letter from Missouri to (ilifornla, and
localities even as far eastward us portions
of Ohio from the shore of the Pucilic, were
within the legal distance fur which a three
cut slump was the full lint horiz d postage.
In giving Culiforuiu a duily mail by tho
Central route, it was provided by Congress
that the llocky Mountains should form the
barrier beyond which a single stamp of the
lesser denomination should not puss cust

the Pocky chain reepiirc tl ten cent stump,
