tion read an interesting report on the subject
. a Xeu- System, of School Headers. The ob
-lot of the report was introduced by stating
,he twofold view of education but to provide
for present wants and to anticipate future
' nioc The cravings of the young mind
f r knowledge, it was said, must be met with
varied supply, as mind cannot be coufined
a limited number of objects without being
. feebled, aud the lessons of nature are pre
dated in g reat variet y- The P ra ctical mis
take to be corrected in our present system of
School Readers, is that they aim at nothing
beyond learning the English language. As
the common school affords an opportunity of
a-uuiring mnch knowledge that may be needed
in practical life, and as school readers have
this advantage, that they are read by all, they
ol ,(rbt to be made subservieut to the great pur
pose of conveying this knowledge ; aud iustead
of being seldom or almost never read for the
purpose of communicating knowledge, they
oaght to be used for directing the thoughts
to the important practical subjects of every
dav life. School Readers ought to be books
on Natural Science, or Intellectual and Moral
Science, Physiology and other scientific sub
jects, which, without being systematic treati
ses might yet present such views of the scien
ces and of their fundamental principles, as
would lead the young to appreciate their value
and keep alive and profitably gratify the in
quisitiveness of youth
The thanks of the Association was tendered
to I>r. Bliss for his report.
The Committee appointed to report resolu
tions, brought in a report which was accepted.
After a recess, the Association met in the
evening, and listened to an interesting and
able lecture by the Rev. S. F. Colt. The lec
turer chose for his subject, The. love of Rend
iv, and introduced and commended the sub
ject to the atteution of the audience by pre
senting from the history of literature some stri
king aud living cxemplications and witnesses
nf this principle or passion—a clear and forci
ble illustration of the true object of reading
followed, and in dwelling on the varied advan
tages of reading, he in a very lively and graphic
manner exhibited the privilege it affords at all
times of access to the companionship of the
good and great and learned of past ages ; the
opportunity was improved of administering
salutary cautious on the subject of light read
ing, and the lectare was concluded with a se
ries of suitable counsels on the subject.
The thanks of the Association were tender
ed to Mr. Colt for his address.
The Associatioa then resumed their discus
sions, which were suspended during a brief in
terval to afford the members of the Teachers'
Institute, then convened in Troy, an opportu
nity of testifying their esteem for Prof. Co-
Turn and their regard for his valuable services,
this was done by presenting him with an arn
brotype representation of the members of the
Institute in a group, which was regarded with
much interest, not only from the artistic ex
cellence, but from its appropriateness as a me
mento of the interesting circumstances under
which Prof. Coburn and the teachers were as
sembled. The present was delivered by a Com
mittee of the teachers, with a neat address bv
Mr. Crandall, of the Troy Academy, and the
gift acknowledged by Prof. Coburn in suitable
and feeling terms.
The Association met on Saturday morning,
and was opened with prayer by the Rev. Mr.
A report was read by Mr. William Davies,
of the Towanda Public School, on Phonetic
Teaching. The principles of the Phonetic sci
ence was staled, the fact presented that the
English, more than other modern languages
departs from the phonetic principle—and that
comparatively few ever become good readers
or speakers. The advantages of the system
ft 'ere fully stated aud illustrated, and various
testimonies from the highest sources were quot
ed, attesting the practicability aud the advan
ces of the system. The report was accom
mod with a series of resolutions. The re
tort, which discovered much research on the
'object, and an interesting array of facts as
roll as argnmeuts in support of the Phonetic
'jstem, was listened to with much attention,
is one of the exercises, which peculiarly en
laced the pleasure and the profitableness of
his meeting. The report was accepted ; the
hanks of the Association tendered to Mr. Da
r|es, and the resolutions reported laid over for
ibe future consideration and action of the As
A copy of the report was requested for pnb

DII. J. M'IXTOSII, DENTIST,
jJLjTvf l •"" I 'iiy thanks the community for thege
- ITT—l—> neroiiK treatment he has received for the
past eight years, and promises to exert himself in future
as he has never done before to deserve their confidence.
Hereafter no work will leave his hands that will not
compare favorably witli the lest style of city dentistry.
In connection with thanks he begs to say, that the im
mediate payment of plate work will he a necessity. A
good tit is a most difficult object to be attained without
having paid for the plate. It is true that a poor fit can
be had whether paid for or not. but the responsibility is
not in the least impaired with him. if the work is paid tor
perhaps the opposite. It is mightily offensive to he sus
pected of a deliberate attempt to gouge. He will under
take to do nothing bevond Ins skill to accomplish. Per
sons who do not wish to employ him until they find tin
plate is •' going to do," are unformed that he does net de
sire to lie so employed. He can point to as large a ntiui
licr of good fits as any dentist can of equal business : and
—if he does say it—to a great many more artistically ar
ranged cases. If what he has done, cannot lie taken as
a sufficient guarantee, the choice of another dentist w ill
never be a subject of complaint by him.
