Our second proposition : "A more thorough
district supervision is required, to awaken a
sufficient interest, to provide for and keep our
schools in a line of proper duty."
Without proper care and supervision the
best farm will become impoverished and scan
ty, the most useful mechanical agencies will
become powerless or perhaps dangerous ; and
so it is with all human institutions. Those
of the most public nature are likely to suffer
from neglect or mismanagement : and they
are the most likely to produce discord and
When we consider the amount of effort
that is required to educate the,human family,
it is not difficult to perceive, that any system
of education whatever, managed with indif
ference, would be but a miserable failure to
answer the ends for which it was instituted.
In the system that we have adopted, the bur
den of management lies upon the school di
rectors. The duties of providing and. locating
school houses, of levying and collecting taxes,
of employing teachers and superintending
the school, require a good judgment, a great
deal of time; and frequently a faithful dis
charge of duty meets with censure and hos
These circumstances have often caused di
rectors to shrink from duty, and this negli
gence has often proved disastrouS to the sys
tem. If every director would enter upon a
faithful discharge of duty and apply a pro
per remedy for every defect, the public mind
would become educated to it, difficulties would
be less complicated, their own ditties would
be less burdensome, and the system would
be beneficial and. progressive. Directors
possess much discretionary power, and a faith
ful exercise of it does more to satisfy public
opinion than any other circumstance. A neg
ligence on their part, leads to indifference on
the part of teachers, a loss of confidence by
the patrons of schools, and the whole is ren
dered worthless.
A thorough district supervision, not only
exercises control but it creates a lively inter
est by the teachers and in the school, and
this interest goes home to every fireside : it
is then that our system of popular education
begins to be consistent, progressive, and glo
rious in its results.
This is considered of so much importance,
and a' neglect in district supervision, has been
so fruitful in mischief, that we must recom
mend a careful consideration of the Circular
to School Directors lately issued from the De
partment and published in the July number
of the School Journal.
Directors of Huntingdon County : Let our
system of popular education be resuscitated.
As it is the only safe-guard of civil liberty ;
let it be the glory of the Commonwealth.—
You are its guardians, and you must be re
sponsible for its weal or wo. Never since
the sun first lighted up the smiles of Eden
was there a greater demand for an enlightened
intelligence among the people. The efforts .
of government in behalf of education arise
from an absolute necessity. We have in our
midst many a modern civilian, priest and
politician who offer up their thousands to the
Moloch of party, while.they tramp beneath
their feet the proudest child of the Republic.
The simplicity of our primitive institutions
has passed away into a constant strife for as
cendancy. Progress—constant mutation—is
an eternal law of things. The circumstances
of to-day will be swept away by the fatality
of to-morrow. Let me persuade you then to
help us carry forward the standard of popular,
of universal education.
To Directors and Teachers.
Moral and Religious Instruction: The
opening of the winter schools presents a
favorable and proper opportunity for a few
suggestions on this subject to Directors and
Polemic theology and sectarian dogmas
have no legitimate place in the Common
Schools of the State. The introduction of
such elements would shiver the system as if
scathed by lightnings, and prostrate its en
ergies beyond the hope of redemption. But
this certain danger on the one hand, should
not lead to the opposite extreme, of educa
ting the children of a professedly Christian
commonwealth—judicially recognized as such
—in the moral darkness of virtual heathen
ism or atheism. The fact that sound moral
and religious instruction should enter into all
our systems of public edueation, remains
none the less certain. So long as it is an ad
mitted truth that virtue and intelligence are
indispensable to the maintenance of a repub
lican form of government, and so long as it
remains undeniable that virtue has its best,
if not its only security in the Christian reli
gion, and that multitudes of children are
growing up in our country without any pro
per home or church instruction in even those
elementary principles in morals and religion,
that are to fit them for good citizenship, and
prevent their becoming a curse and a scourge
to community—moral and religious instruc
tion, within the limits here indicated, should,
as a matter of public welfare, come within
the province of the public school.
Our schools through the State differ, and it
is not unreasonable to expect, will differ, in
regard to the use they make of the Bible ;
each Board of Directors being clothed by the
school law with exclusive and absolute au
thority over the subject, and determining the
matter for each school district according to
their own views of official duty. But that is
no reason why, in any of the schools receiv
ing the public money, the moral training
which is so indispensable .to the welfare of
the State, should be neglected. They, in fact,
rest in their very groundwork. Though
Religion has itsprimary elements, its uni
versal truths, which no rational man can ob
ject to have inculcated in his children. It has
its habits of thought, of feeling, of conscien
tious principle, which every body admits
ought to regulate the conduct of early life.—
No man worthy of the name, who sends his
son to the public schools, can object to have
his studies turned to such account as will in
stil a sense of the eternal presence and prov
idence of God, the supremacy of conscience,
the feeling of responsibility; the odiousneps
of theft, of drunkenness, of lying, of mean
ness, tyranny, cruelty, malevolence ; the
greatness and the loveliness of truth, gener
osity, kindliness, reverence ; his duty to his
parents, to his companions, to his fellow
creatures generally; his dependence for hap
piness, first upon God, and then on his own
industry, intelligence, gnod character, resolu
tion and fortitude.
These are matters that are common to all
creeds, they have little to do with the doctrinal
parts of religion, they yet awaken the young
mind to a sense of the duties and responsibil
ities springing from their relations in life, and
develope an appreciation of the blessings
which flow from the great truths Of Christi
anity. They subject the religious affections
to a quiet, yet durable training, and awaken
a desire for more definite religious instruc
tion to be supplied elsewhere, at the proper
time, in its own appropriate way.
There is nothing in the laws of Pennsylva
nia, or in the varied character of, its popula
tion, to hinder the competent and conscien
tious teacher from implanting broad and per-,
manent elements of moral character in the
mind and heart of every pupil entrusted to
his charge, and that, too, within his own reg
ular sphere of effort, and without danger of
giiing offence to any.
Though. a change in the organization of
our present system may not be called for, yet
improvement in its working is certainly desi
rable. Cultivation of the intellect, to the ex=
elusion of moral principle and neglect of the
religious sentiment, but demonstrates and
confirms the very objection brought by unlet
tered ignorance against all education, that it
only makes men rogues and sharpers, and fits
them to practice frauds and villainies upon
an honest, unsuspecting public.
In this connection, the Department desires
to state, with emphasis, the inexorable neces
sity Which exists at • the present time, more
than ever, that the character and habits of
teachers should harmonize -with the responsi
bilities of their vocation, and be fully up to
the level of its exacting requirements. Ac
tively and passively they exert an immense
and enduring influence, for they have to deal
with the most impressible period of life. And
it is not to be - tolerated, if a remedy can be
found, thlat serious and lasting injuries shall
be inflicted upon the mind and morals of pu
pils in the common schools, through the in
competency, or pernicious example of the very
teachers who are employed at the public ex
pense, to educate them in principles, and
train them to habits of usefulness and virtue.
SCANDAL.—The Devil has a wonderful
penchant for rebuking sin. Eyes which are
full of beams have an unaccountable clear
ness of vision in detecting . motes in other
eyes. Some people are brought into "the
world to accomplish a marvelous mission,
and that mission is to ferret out obliquities
in others. Of course it is not expected that
these apostles have any business with them
selves; their mission is violent, and does not
admit of time to scrutinize their own
position. What profit is it that they should
pause to consider their own peccadilloes,
when the enormities of their neighbors loom
up like mountains?
So goes the world over. Everybody
minds everybody's business, but everybody
neglects his own. What sort of a world
would this be if we were without each other
to feed upon? Men have eyes and ears fur
some purpose, and what else could they find
to do, if not to see and hear of each other's
failings, derelictions, errors, transgressions
and enormities? They have tongues which
must lie uselessly idle if not employed in
giving currency to such delinquencies. So
It is with man. The obliquities of his
offended brother furnish the chief staple of
conversational interest. Raman error is
the current of social intercourse, and too
often the coin comes from the mint of the
speaker's brain.

It is brewed down in yon grassy dell, where

It sparkles in the ice gem. It makes the
graceful tissue on which the moonlight
plays. It dallies in the cataract; weaves
the snow wreath and the emerald settings

but always, does good. It is blessed always,
at evening and at morning. It is ever
