contended is detention at night. The point favorable to
the negative, that in the country, scholars generally have
work to do at home, towards evening, and therefore
should uot be kept; was admitted by one of the Speak
ers to be of much significance. The subject was laid on
the table. It WE* then moved that Resolution Xo. 1, re
ported by the Business Committee be adopted—reading
Resolred, That union graded schools are practicable
and from thear eminent success wherever they have, been
established in other States as well as in some portions
of our own ; we believe them to be the most economic
al and efficient schools for all towns andvillages having
sufficient population to support them.
lion. Thomas Burrows, State Superintendent,and Mr.
Coburn advocated the affirmative aud Mr. Leonard the
negative. At ball past three debate was closed by an
order of the day.
Two extracts were ably read by Mr. P. 1). Harding and
Miss Gates—that of the former entitled " Recollections
of a bachelor the latter article was a " Curtain Lec
ture from Mrs. Caudle."
Discussion on the Graded School question was resum
ed. Messrs. Kinney, Reeves and Underwood supported
the affirmative, and Mr. Tracy the negative. Among the
many positions taken by the former side at this time, and
also by Messrs. Burrowes and Coburn at the opening of
debate, were the ones that graded schools are both cheap
er and more serviceable than others—that the Legisla
ture enacting our present Common School law coutem.
plated the establishment, in time of Graded Schools in
places of proper size, so efficient as to afiord the advan
tages not only of thorough but of advanced education to
all attending—that the organization of such tends to de
stroy aristocratic feelings in community, by uugrading
society. The opponents of the question argued that the
founding of Graded Schools, in the country, is not advis
able inasmuch as the population there is so scattered—
After music by the choir, meeting adjourned.
Friday Evesin'O.— Association called to order. Busi
ness ol the evening was introduced with music. Mr. O.
J. Chubbuck delivered an interesting lecture upon the
sulijact of education—setting forth its object as regards
man's condition, physically and morally. Our Common
School system was alluded to as tire best means extant
to secure the greatest blessing to the greatest number.—
The association next listened to an admirable essay from
Miss M. T. Pitcher entitled " Kind words, Their benefi
cial effect, under all circumstances, upon all classes was
first mentioned; and, lastly but primarily, perhaps, in
point of power, as described, their influence in the school
room was shown. Miss Lydia Garner followed with a
most beautiful poem called" Chauge—Creations Doom."
The alteration wrought in the universe since the period
when " The Moruiug Stars saug together." and that
which is yet to ocuur was represented in most elegant
The audience was then addressed by Hon. Thomas
Burrows. The history of the Common School cause in
Pennsylvania, and a statement of the means to be put at
work in order to accomplish the great purpose of our
present law compri-ed, in main, the lecture. All, it was
said, has been done in the past that couid reasonably
have Vieen expeeted. The tree of free knowledge in the
Keystone Had failed to yield more fruit, not from want
of vigor proportionate to its site, but because of its im
maturity. That grand development of strength desirable,
for which it is capacitated, and to which it is very grad
ually but in the same degree properly reaching ; is as yet
uot attained. In the matter of obstacles met with, the
speaker said that our population, unlike that of Massa
chusetts aud other states, was very much mixed. First
in order of settlement we had the Quakers, afterwards
the Scotch, Irish the Germans and the Yankees. The
disposal of the demands of educational interests has
been wholly within the power of these clans, with their
diverse and national views. As evidence of the accom
plishment of much reference was made to the very good
qualifications of teachers now employed to the interest
Directors have manifest in the performance of their du
ties ; aud particularly to the fact that at present instead
of, as formerly, having an instructor examined by a Doc
tor, Lawyer, Clergyman, Squire or some other supposed
smart man ; there has been established by the people
chiefly for this object the valuable office of County Su
perintendency. Parental co-operation, and] that of the
Clergy, with teachers was stated to be the great desider
atum for the future. After music by the choir was lis
tened to the meeting adjourned.
Saturday Moksi.no. —Association opened with pray
er by Mr. Coburn. The adoption was moved of the 2d
ressolution, reading in substance as follows :
Resolved, That as a means of rjnelling disturbances, as
well as for the social and moral improvement of pupils,
the elements of vocal music should be taught in all our
The affirmative speakers were Messrs. Coburn Dean A
Bixby - the negative, Messrs. O. H. P. Kinney, Under
wood and Ixonard. The leading argument of the first
side appeared to t>e that a kuowledge of the rudiments of
vocal music is beneficial tc. every one—that all enjoying
the necessary opportunities can learn the same ; there
fore the privilege should be of as general access as possi
ble. The negative replied that all individuals cannot be
come singers, that by such education in the theory is un
desirable. and consequently requiring these having " no
music in their souls" to attend to this branch, and by so
doing to neglect other A by them deemed important stu
dies, is wrong. The following resolution, by a motion
that prevailed, was considered:
Resolved. That although females in very many instan
ces are better calculated to impart instruction than
males. we are still opposed to tue policy of employing
them in our large winter schools.
The question as to the comparative ability of the sex
es in teaching different studies ; as to the better mode of
government—whether by the iufluenceof kind words,
gentle voice and persuasive look,—woman's method as a
class—or by coercive means, to enforce which, male in
structors generally speaking are by nature better fitted,
was debated at length by Messrs. Coburn, Morse, Yos
btirg and Dean on the affirmative of the resolutian, and
by Mr. Reeves, the negative. Dr. Corbin spoke on the
subject, not particularly pro or con. Resolution was
then adopted. The Association passed a motion to the
effect that the opinion of the audience be expressed. A
vote having been taken, question was again declared car.
ried. Mr. 0. H. P. Kinney offered the following as a
topic for discession at the next meeting of the Associa
Resolved, That it would be impolitic for clergymen
wheu visiting our schools to impart religious instruction
to the pupils.
The following embodying a resolution presented by
Mr. Harding, and an amendment to the same offered by
Mr. Kinney, was unanimously adopted, viz :
Resolved. That the thanks of the Associationa are em
inently due and are hereby tendered to the trustees of
this building for the excellent accommodations with
which we have been favored—to the individuals who
have furnished music of a superior quality—to the cit
izens of Athens for the hospitable reception we have met
with—to the Shool directors of this district—to Mr. P.
D. Harding and Miss. H. C. Gates for their very fine
reading—to Mr. O. J- Chubbuck for bis able lecture—to
Miss. M. T. Pitcher for her admirable essay, and Miss.
Lydia Garner for her beautiful poem, and espeeialy to
Hon. Thos. H. Borrowes, for the pains he has taken in
visiting us at this time, and for the valuable instruction
we have received during the session of the Association.
