Excerpt from Common Schools in the United States Compared With Those in Europe<br><br>At the solicitation of several distinguished persons in different parts of the country, we have decided to issue, in separate form, the learned and excellent article on Common Schools which appeared in the last January number of Brownson's Review. The vital importance of the subject discussed, the interest in its investigation which this paper has awakened throughout the Union, not merely among Catholics but also among many outside the pale of the Church, are additional reasons for the publication. The Rt. Rev. Bishop Spalding of Louisville, the writer of the article, has kindly revised it for the present edition, and has added several pages of new matter, on the present aspect of the School Question in the United States. The signs of the times seem to point to a change of public sentiment in regard to our Common School organization, and to indicate a growing conviction of the necessity of remodeling it, so as to make it more conformable to the genius of our free institutions, and to the system for primary instruction which has been so long in successful operation throughout the greater portion of Europe, both Catholic and Protestant.<br><br>It will be well for those who feel an interest in this all important subject to contribute towards circulating this article extensively among their friends, who might not otherwise have their attention called to the interesting facts which it develops, on unexceptionable Protestant authority. As only a limited edition has been published, those who wish to procure a number of copies should send in their orders soon.<br><br>For terms, see fourth page of cover.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
