^,;. part of the first story is occupied by the
janitor, from whence the unpleasant odors,

.. • Zio that the First Primary, now taught in a

men and women to pursue--a work Which

visits- paid by Directors, are by far tmo•tm

The grade in our schools seems to besuf
fitiently high. The highest grade of study
in the city, Is found iii house 4, inWerd No.

Ray's Algebra, second part, is taught. We
are of the opinion that the schools in Wards
2 and ere not quite up to grade. How
ever, no ldame is to be attached to the
Principat, for this . - It ' grows tut of the'
crowded condition of the primary Schools;
'compelling frequent promotions, and when
the pupils are not properly prepared. It is
impossible to keep up the =ado, unless pi
pile are thoroughl3r qualified as they pass
from ahool to school.

makkag,ement continues we suggest= that no
