BY CALVIN E. STOWE, D.D.,
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1839, by
MARSH, CAPEN, LYON, AND WEBB, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of Massachusetts.
The first of the following pieces is a “Report on Elementary Public Instruction in Europe, which was made to the General Assembly of Ohio, in December, 1837.' It was printed by the Legislature, and copies sent to every school district in the State. The Legislature of Pennsylvania also published it, both in English and German, and distributed it throughout that State. It was again printed, by the Legislature of Massachusetts, and it has also been published in Michigan, New York, and several other States. Notwithstanding this extensive supply, the demand for it still continues ; and it is now accordingly reprinted, with corrections by the Author.
The second piece is an article originally published in the American Biblical Repository, for July, 1839. Its purpose is to promote the same great object that is contemplated in the first, and the Author hopes it may prove not less acceptable and useful.
