schools, so as to afford a regular occupation
to teachers, may be considerably relieved
by encouraging to a much greater extent,
the employment of females. While it is
conceded that a male teacher is betteer a
dapted to control the older boys, and to
teach such as are considerably advanced in
their studies, yet, for girls and younger
children of both sexes, the instructress, as
a general thing, has superior qualifications.
Her delicacy, benevolence, attractiveness
and moral power, provided by Nature, par
ticularly for the government of children,
give her a potency the Instructor does not
The table herewith annexed, shows that
the average salaries paid to male and fe
male teachers per month, during the past
year, to be $18,75 to the former, and $ll
46 to the latter. It costs about as much
to pay male teachers for six months in the
year as it does females for ten. It is obvi
ous, therefore, that by the general employ
ment of the instructress iu all schools for
which she is adapted, the duration of teach- 1
lug might be greatly enlarged without in
of cost, and at the same time be
forded by those who pursue it as a profes
sion, who possess experience, and maintain
continuity and progress in the method and
course of study.
But however much wo way prepare safe
guards so as to prevent incompetent teach
ers from being placed in the schools, what
ever measures may be adopted to stimulate
the ambition and excite the energies of
teachers for greater improvement, whatev
er shall be expended to fit them for the
performance of their responsible duties, yet
if not invited and temped to enter upon and
continue the profession of the teacher by
adequate cumpensation, all other means for
obtaining this desired end must measurably
fail. Good teachers should receive good
pay, to prevent them from abandoning the
business and entering upon some other pur
suit in which their qalifications will be bet
ter rewarded. How shall the means for
better salaries be supplied? On the score
of mere econemy, an enlightened and lib- I
eral view will show that it is true policy to
pay high salaries to good teachers, rather
than low salaries to bad ones. In both in-
stances the golden moments of the youth of ;
pupils are expended, and if not improvedl
by the aid of competent instructors, it is to
them, as well as the State, a serious loss,
which cannot well be estimated. Educa
tion is the lever that, resting upon the ful
crum of mind, moves the world. No la
bor, whatever it may be, is efficient but in
proportion to the aptness with which it is
applied by mind. The better cultivation
of the intellect the more productive the la
that is directed by it. This is true
whether applied to the mechanic arts, man
ufactures, agriculture, or anything else.—
As a consequence, therefore, the develope
'tient of the resources of this great country
must depend upon the mind that conceives
purposes, and with skill and adaptation di
rects the execution of details. The saga
cious and cultivated intellects that. project
and adjusted the plans for the construe
tion of the great artificial water coma:lnm
cat;on between the waters of Lake Erie and
the Hudson river, have added incalcuable
millions to the wealth of a sister State; while
in our own, the practical application of sci
ence has costructed gigantic internal im
provements, developed the rich treasures
of our vast and varied mineral deposites,
called into fruitful life-bearing production
our naturally fertile soil, established and
placed under successful operation manufac
tures of almost every conceivable kind,
spread over our valleys and plains, numer
ous cities, towns and villages,and filled our
borders with a thrifty population of nearly
two and a half millions. Such results could
never have been produced among an uned
ucated people; and whatever limitation may
have existed hitherto to the general preva
lence of education, still whatever of pro
gress we have made is owing to the mind, to
the cultivated mind, that has given fruitful
ness to the labor it controlled and directed.
In proportion as intellegence prevails a
mong a people with the energy of our raze,
and under the untrammelled oportunities
that our free institutions afford, so shall be
our progress, number, power, and wealth.
What then shall the increased cost of good
schools, furnishing a goood education to ev
ery child in the Commonwealth, weigh
against the increased advantages that shall
result to us as a community and people,
even in a pecuniary point of view? Surely
an enlightened economy, if for motives of
gain only, prompts the outlay.
In a republican government like ours,
depending upon moral power, the virtue
and intelligence of her, people must be the
substitute for the vastly expensive machi
nery of other governments who rule by the
maintenance of a costly physical force.—
With us, our scholars. and teachers are
trained and diuiplincd in lieu of the soldiery
and burthensome police establishments of
despotic governments. Educate our people,
teach them to understand their. duty atioi
tizets, to make good laws and observe thew,,
and we shall have no occasion to-support
such forces as in other countries "harrass
their people and eat out their substance."
General education makes a very cheap, yet
But apart from those considerations, the
interest the State has in the intellegence of
her citizens, should induce the patriotic
promptings of our people to make any ne
cessary pecuniary sacrifice to attain this end.
As the benefits of the common school sys
tem, imperfectly as they have hitherto been
afforded, become understood, the more pop
ular is this institution. Furnish good
teachers, show the tax-payers the differ
ence in the results produced betty dll com
petent and incompetent teachers, and the
but be responded to by a willingness to in
cur the necessary cost.
In concluding this report, I will merely
add, that owing to my brief connection
with the duties of the Department, I may
have omitted other and perhaps more im
portant considerations, which would tend
to correct defects, or add new features and
improvements in the machinery of our com
mon school system. Those suggested have
presented themselves most foriebly to my
mind, and they are, therefore, most re
spectfully submitted to the reprerentutives
of the people, for such action thereon as to
them may seem right and necessary.
Tyrany of the Petticoats,
BY FANNY FERN,
"We males swagger and talk of our su
periority, but only the savage has practi
cal dominion over the 'weaker sex,' simply
because he bangs his refractory female in
lordly style ! We don't beat our women,
and are therefore slaves; we arc forced to
knock tinder, because we have fastidious
notions of knocking theta down! This
I may be quite correct; I only state the fact
without commentary. Unbeaten woman is
a tyrant. A little blond creature with fair
eyes, fragile figure, whom you could crush
in your wanly grasp, somehow or other you
find yourself trembling before a crowed po
tentate. She bends you to her purpose, to
her caprices; if you quail not before her
anger, she rushes into hysterics! What
is helpless and above all, clubless man to
del Be meek and acquiescent."
Of course; no other way, my dear sir, if
you want your shirts made to suit you,
your old pants rosurrectionized, your dinner
kept hot, or any other little accommoda
tion, (when you are in a hurry and can't
atop to discuss matters.) 'Clubless mars!'
I like that; I'd like to know if they don't
always resort to ARMS when they intend
to subdue us I I merely ask for informa
tion, as lam an old maid myself ! Now
there's no use trying to DRIVE any of the
female gender (I'm ono of the sisters, and
feel myself qualified to "take the floor,"
Mr. Chairman!) There's no necessity for
making such a bungling piece of matrimo
ny, either. Were I a man, I'd engage to
manage any wife you can bring along.
(Between you and I, I should keep the bite
awl reins out of sight !) but I'd do it !
She should be as docile as a kitten, and
believe herself master of the house, too !
Oh, pooh ! you don't understand the phil
osophy of the thing—'tisnt every man that
has a call to be a husband ! Do you sup
pose if you feed and clothe a woman, and
keep her warm, that's- the end of the chap
terl Pshaw: Imagine me to bo Tom Fern!
When I came home from the office, I
should take a microscopic view of my dear
Fanny's face, to see which way the wind
blew. If she looked dull,. from the thou
sand petty annoyances of housekeeping, I
should just put my arm around her blessed
little neck (never minding collars and fix
ins,) and tell her I didn't care a damaged
cigar whether I had my favorite pudding
or not, if she only loved me Wouldn't
she brighten up, hey 1 Do you suppose I'd
go staving up and down the room like a
hyena, and knock over her work basket,
and tread on the baby, and break the bell
wire, and scowl till I looked like one of those
"gutta percha" phizzes I No, sir ! Then
I'd kiss her, and tell her to keep up her
spirits till I came home at night, and we'd
have an early tea, and hear Tommy say his
prayers, and go to— (well I DARSEN 2 T
say it; but I'd TAKE her there ?
Voll, sir, the consequence would be she
would see I was the same fascinating Tom
who begged her on my marrow bones and
, •to make me the hap
piest of men," and there isn't one woman
in a thousand (treated that way) that
wouldn't love till you were as hap
py as a fly in a molasses cup! As to a
meek man, defend me from Betty's in cor
duroys! I'd prefer to endure the "bang
ing of a refractory-female!"" I'd rath
er be under a tyrent than over a Moses !
