The public schools of this borough went into Ope-,
ration-on-theisth. August, 1.850. • The 'number. of
'schools was fifteen, and they werelimi sitty , ;
scholars each. They were graded so as to' reduce
the expense of instruction Of the youngef - children,•
and give the undivided attention of some of the teach
ers to the higher branches. Tlie plan has fully'lin
swered.theexpectatlons entertained of it by its friends;
and it is now no longer nn experiment but a Sysfeco"
adaptedio 'the wants of the community. Many
4ffifficulties have' been encountered by . the Board in
carrYing out a new plan,
and we attribute its -stiecess
to the 'generous support of our ciaens, and to the
liberal manner in which a heavy til4cation' has been
voted and 'laid Lytle, inhabitants of the borough.;--•
During thelirst 'winter r ithe schools. had nearly the,
designated nundor, and in soma instances exceeded
their quote. Wd, are warraftted- in sayingi.there
were from 750 to B:kehildren on the rolls. During
the his year it was found practicable to discontinue
one of the primary schools, substituting a temporary
school for a feW months, when the .pressure-was the
greatest. We belleVe'that fourteen schools are suffi
cient for the "education of all wlr swill apply, except
during three months in the winteesseason, when there

It is the earnest wish of the Board to limit the ex
penses of theischofils as faC ns - is consistent with a fair
remuneration to worthy mai deserving teachers, and
the sUccessfilLoperation of the:System. . .
ferent'schooli,:it was thought .expedient to,expendthe
extra appropriation of $1264 00 ! by the state in tho
Purchase of the Old College, which has been in part. •
rebuilt and will be neatly fitted up to accommodate
four Schools. The original cost was,Bso dollars,and
the expense o - frebuilding and refitting it will proba-
bly be 650 dollars mord, making fifteen 'unlike(' dol
lars permanently investedduring the past' ear for the
advantage of the inhabitants, and reducing the item of - -
room rent from $468 in 1837, to PitYfor 1838-9.
We do not believe the school system .can be.cifi- c
deafly carried on at a much les . s, expense than during
the past year. Whether any !nigher reduction can
be made sin the expenses it will be fur future Boards -
of Directors to ‘ deteernine ;;but we eheerfully submit '
the whole matter to flue qualified voters Attie borough
