EDITED BY TALIAFERRO P. SHAFFNER. LOUISVILLE: PUBLISHED BY MORTON GRISWOLD. 1847. Morton Griswold's Power Press. PREFACE. THE first volume of the "1 KENTUCKY STAn REGISTER," prepared for the year 1847, is now presented to the community for their patronage. The utility of the work cannot be questioned. We have endeavored to make it a book useful to every citizen, and believe we have consummated that desideratum. There are, doubtless, many errors in names of individuals, which it was im- possible for us to correct,-originating, as they did, in the difficulty experienced in deciphering the writing of the returns from some of the Counties. We have strenuously endeavored to guard against errors, and trust that our efforts have been somewhat successful. Should we, at a future period, issue another vol- ume, we shall be able to free it from many imper- fections contained in the present. We contemplated giving a tabular view of the Schools in Kentucky, but the Returns were too imperfect to carry out successfully, the design. We would here return our warmest acknowl- edgments to His Excellency Governor Owsley, Vi PREFACE. Hon. Secretary of State George B. Kinkead, and his assistant, A. S. Mitchell, Esq., Hon. James Harlan, Prof. Henry Pirtle, and many others, who have rendered us much aid in procuring the matter for the "REGISTER." Should the present volume meet with a liberal patronage, it will be succeeded by others. We cherish a hope that our labors will be approved of by our fellow-citizens. THE EDITOR.

The County Court has the power to recommend the appointment of Surveyors, Coroners, Justices of the Peace, and to appoint Inspectors, Collectors, and their deputies, Surveyors of the Highways, Constables, Jailors, c. The Act of 1796 thus defines the jurisdiction of the County Court, viz: " The County Courts shall and may have cogni- zance, and shall have jurisdiction, of all causes respecting wills, letters of administration, mills, roads, the appointment of guardians and settling JUSTICES OF THE PEACE. of their accounts, and of admitting deeds and other writings to record; they shall superintend the pub- lic inspections, grant ordinary license, and regulate and restrain ordinaries and tippling houses, and appoint processioners; they shall hear and deter- mine, according to law, the complaints of appren- tices and hired servants, being citizens of any one of the United States against their masters or mis- tresses, or of the masters or mistresses against the apprentices or hired servants; they shall have power to establish ferries and regulate the same, and to provide for the poor within their counties." JUSTICES OF THE PEACE. The Justices of the Peace in this Commonwealth shall have concurrent original jurisdiction of all contracts, written or parol, express or implied, for the payment of money or property, or for the per- formance of any act or acts, duty or duties, in cases where the debt, the balance of the debt or the dam- ages, which the the obligee or promissee shall be entitled to recover by the breach of, or in virtue of said contract, shall not exceed fifty dollars, and the parties shall have the same right of appeal from the judgments rendered by Justices of the Peace in relation thereto, which plaintiffs and defendants now have on judgments or controversies for like sums, and on the same terms and conditions, and where the matter in controversy shall exceed five pounds, they shall have the same right of trial by jury which now exists in regard to controversies of like amount.-Act of 1828. 39 COUNTY MATTERS: ADAIR.

THE Subscribers have engaged in an enterprise, which is designed to supply the rising generation of Kentucky and the West, with a Series of School Books adapted to theirwants. We appeal for support to the people of the State. Why should Kentucky-why should the whole South and West be dependant on our Northern neighbors for the books which are to form the minds and regulate the principles of our youth It is well known that northern school books are ofteni full of opinions and senti- ments hostile to the very constitution of our social relations. Our object is to supply schools with books not merely free from this lurking poison, but full of the highest patriotism-above all sect- arian and local feeling. If our home-made books are only equal to those made else- where, have we not a right to ask the people of this State to fos- ter a home-enterprise But we are not satisfied in producing works equal to those made elsewhere, but we may appeal to the judgment of the best scholars, whether in point of literary merit, mechanical execu- tion and cheapness, the following are not superior to all compe- tition: SERIES OF SCHOOL BOOKS. BY S. G. GOODRICH. The New Primer, 36 pp. l8mo. The Common School Primer, 96 pp. 16 mo. Goodrich's First Reader, 72 pp. 18mo. Goodrich's Second Reader, 144 pp. 18mo. Goodrich's Third Reader, 216 pp. A Goodrich's Fourth Reader, 240 pp. 12mo. Goodrich's Fifth Reader, 384 pp. 12mo. full b'd. Bronson's Elocution - or VOCAL PHILOSOPHY, 320 pp. Svo. cloth. All New 4Revised, Enlarged Editions. The following are supposed to be some of the peculiar excel leneies of this system: 1. Completeness-Beginning with the alphabet, and advancing to the highest principles of elocution. 2. Comprehensiveness-Embracing all the helps and facilities .both for teacher and learner. a 3. Originality-All the leosns in the first, second and third Readers, and many in the fourth, being original, and all the others fresh selections; nothing being copied from other Readers. 4. Progression, to secure which, the number has been increas- ed from four to five, thus obviating the breaks which form the uniform complaints of other series. 5. Style, the execution throughout being of the highest charac- ter. 6. Engravings-all new designs, by the very first American artists, and in great variety. This department alone, for the new editions, has cost the publishers upwards of Two Thousand Dollars 7. Lessons in Enunciation on every Vowel and' Consonant sound, and all the combinations of consonant sounds. In this respect the English language does not furnish any other so ex- tended, thorough and elaborate series of practical exercises. 8. Lessons in Elocution, containing copious and miinute rules, examples and exercises in accent, inflection, emphasis, quantity, pauses, modulation, expression, and ten times the amount of ele- gant extracts to be found in any other work. 9. Interest-these Readers presenting, probably, the best col- lection of matter in the language to interest and stimulate the young. mind. Mr. Goodrich's superiority as a writer for the young is proved by the fact, that every other series of Readers published of late years has borrowed, and generally without acknowledgement, more or less from his writings. 10. Cheapness. By means of an enlarged page and a compact but clear arrangement, the amount of matter has been nearly doubled, and these books are now the cheapest published. SISTORICAL COURSE. THE complaint has very often been made of the anti-republican tendency of history, as for the most part it has hithhrto been writ- ten. The child who gets his notion of past events from the class books le studies at school, reads of nothing but kings, emperors and lords, as if they were the only persons worth recording. Their quarrels, wars, intrigues, and even their very vices are minutely registered, while the condition of millions of people is hardly noticed. The child perceives that more importance is attached to the merest whim of a monarch than to the welfare of a nation. What wrong ideas does this not produce in the young mind' What undue appreciation of the value of power, and comparative contempt for the pursuit of virtue. History should be the history of the people, their progress in art, science, civiliz- ation, morals, refinements, knowledge, and especially in the con- sciousness and conquest of their social, political and religious rights-in one word, of the Progross of Liberty. 4 Seeing this great defect in our literature, so much lamented and so injurious, the publishers of the Comprehensive Series of School Books have made arrangements for the preparation of a complete Historical Series for the use of the young in schools and families, by S. G. Goodrich, Esq., author of Peter Par- ley's Tales, and beyond doubt the best qualified man of the pres- ent or past times for so important an undertaking. They can give no stronger guarantee that this series shall be suited to the formation of the minds and characters of the future citizens of an enlightened republic. It will consist of two parts: Part I...-Prrimary Course. 1. U. States and Canada. 4. Africa. 2. Europe. 5. Asia, (including Jew- 3. Mexico 4' S. America. is History.) In volumes of 216 pages, 1Imo., at a very low price. Part II.s..aldvanced Course. 1. Ancient History. 2. Modern History. In volumes of about 500 pages, 12mo. These volumes will be printed in a compact style, with clear type on good substantial paper, and be strongly bound with Morocco backs and muslin sides. They will be copiously illus- trated with cuts, engravings, maps and plans. In general ele- gance of mechanical execution, these books shall surpass any pre- vious similar undertaking, and at a lower price. GRAMMATICAL COURSE. INTRODUCTORY LESSONS IN ENGLISH GRAMMAR, By NOBLE BUTLER. A PRACTICAL GRAMMAR of the English Language. By the same. Teachers will be supplied gratuitously with copies for examination.
