PRE FACE.

The publishers of the “Science of Government in connec tion with American Institutions,". a work designed for Colleges and High Schools, - have received abundant assurances, from various parts of the country, that the general introduction of the study of the science of government into common schools would follow the appearance of a text-book adapted to the wants and circumstances of common school teachers. The author was thus led to consult a number of intelligent and experienced teachers. Having possessed himself of their views, which met his full approbation, he prepared a work, and submitted it to an able and successful teacher, who carefully revised every part of it, and made many valuable suggestions. The work was then wholly re-written, and is now given to the public with the hope that it will meet the approbation of common school teachers, and aid them in doing a work which no other class of men can do that of preparing the masses for intelligently exercising their rights as citizens of the Republic.

The teacher who may use this little volume will find its topics more fully treated in the “Science of Government," above mentioned.
