ftojr PROCEEDINGS OF THE BRADFORD COUN
TY TKACHEKS' ASSOCIATION. —The Association met, pur
suant to adjournment. at Hpiingfleld Centre, Friday af
ternoon, August 30th, in the Baptist Church. The meet
ing was opened with uiusic, by a choir, iu attendance.—
A report from the business Committee, embracing ques
tions to be discussed, aud a programme ol exercises, was
theu accepted, aud the Committee discharged. It was
moved that the fourth resolution be adopted. The same
reads as follows :
Resolved, That in district schools, generally, proper
government is too much neglected.
Remarks in favor of the affirmative;were made by Messrs
Coburn, Hurst, Spear and Scott; the negative, by Messrs.
Doty, Gates and Harkness.
It was argued by those lavoring the resolution, that
gorerning is the part of a teacher's office the most liable
to lie neglected, from the fact that it is the most difficult
to lie filled ; that the prevailing complaint of directors
1 aud citizens respecting our schools, is, that the instruc
-1 tors do not maintain proper discipline. In reply, it was
; said that to neglert means to wilfully slight, but teach
j crs, as a class, are too honorable to intentionally (ail to
| perform tlieir responsible duties ; that they are no more
' deserving censure lor faulty school order, than the direc
tors and parents. Debate was here arrested by an order
of the day.
Suggestions as to the best method of teaching the al
phabet, were next offered by Misses. Allen and French.
Bolii agreed in the opinion that the letters, as tar as pos
sible, either in form or name, should be associated by 'lie
tca> her with some very f (miliar idea, and that but few
should lie assigned the child, as a lesson, at a time.
The discussion, a short time previously suspended, was
resumed, and having occupied considerable further time,
was, by a moti< i passed to that effect, postponed for the
day. Meeting then adjourned.
FRIDAY EVENlNG.— Association met at 7J o'clock,
opening with music. The following resolution was of
fered by 51 r.Coburn:
WHEREAS, The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has
made provision for the education of all her sons and
Re solved. That it is the duty of parents and guardians
to afford those under tlieir charge, the opportunity of ob
taining such an amount of education as shall prepare
them for usefulness ; and if they refuse or neglect to per
form this obvious duty, they should be compelled to its
peiformance, by Legislative enactments.
Messrs. Coburn, Tracy and French, supported the af
firmative, and Messrs. Davies and Durand, the negative .
Among the many arguments advanced by the first speak
ers were these : That it the Legislature has the author!-
ity to provide means for educating, by taxing the proper
ty of individuals it possesses the right to compel those
paying tax . who have children, to use the privileges pro
vided ; that the community and the child have rights,as
well as the parent, consequently, since ignorance is so
fruitful a source ot vice, the public, in exercising one of
its privileges, has the moral power to protect itself by
obliging parents to properly instruct their offspring ; and
one of the main rights of every youth, is that to procure
Reference was male to the very beneficial working of
the law, similar to the one contemplated in the resolu
tion, exist ng in one or two of the New England States ;
and to the step our Commonwealth has taken ill the
right direction, by passing an act to prevent miners' chil
dren beiug allowed to work, under a certain age—the
principal object of which statute is to make the educa
tiou of this class of the young necessary. In answer, the
negative admitted the correctness of the positiou assum
ed by the speakers upon the opposite side, regarding the
privileges of community and the young, but reasoned
that the benefits of education can be better secured by the
establishment of good schools, thau by the enact
ment of arbitrary laws. Snch a statute would he
tyranical as its executors necessarily would be endow
ed with the very dictatorial power of deciding the whole
matter as to how the children should be educated : and
imprisonment of the parents would be the severe, but
ueces-ary penalty for a relusal to comply with the law s
, The question was then laid on the table.
Miss Berry next read a selected article, entitled Self
Reliance," and Miss Sweeny an essay. In the latter was
described the folly of the extremely erroneous, but pre va
lent idea, that the aim of education is to fit the possessor
to exist in a higher than the working sphere. Session
SATURDAY MORNING The Association met at 8$ o'-
clock, and was opened with prayer by tbe Rev. James
McW'illiam. Misses Preston and Clark gave a descrip
tion of the best method of using maps. Pupils' drawing
boundaries, etc., was recommended. Mr. Reese Davies
then favored tbe aadieDce with a declamation, and Mr
Guild, witli the reeding of an extract called " Every Day
Duties." It was moved that the following resolution be
Resolved , That the greatest difficulty encountered in
governing schools, is want of proper training at home.
The affirmative speakers were Messrs. Corse and Spear
—negative, Mr. Allen. The affirmative charged the pa
rents with the responsibility of the " difficulty the
gentlemen upon the opposite side thought the greatest
obstacle the teacher has to meet, is his own incapability.
The question was carried.
The following was next discussed :
Resolved, That Geography is one of the most Impor
tant branches, and should be more thoroughly taught in
The affirmative speaker was Mr. Harkness. Those on
the negative were Messrs. Hurst, Davies, Doty and Spear.
An amendment was moved, to insert tho word " not" af
ter " is, and strike out " and," inserting " but." A mo
tion Was carried that the question be divided in such a
way, thatall before the word" branches " inclusive, com
prise the lirst, and the remainder of the resolution the
second part. Votes having been taken, the first division
was lost and the second carried. The question regarding
the enactment of a law by the Legislature, was next vot
ed upon aud was lost. A motion to the effect that the
audience be allowed to express its opinion by voting, up
on this and the Geography question, was carried. The
result coincided with that obtained in the Association.
A vote of thauks was then given to the individuals who
had kindly contributed to the interest of the meeting, by
furnishing explanations, reading essays, extracts, and
The following was offered by Mr. Coburn
Resolved, That the thanks of the Association be pre
sented to the trustees of the church, for its use, aid to
the citizens ot the place for their kindness and hospitali
