YOe Endlng. June 5, 1871: •
In accordance With the law, mak
ing it the duty of the Co6nty,Superin
tendent to annually submit tothe State
Superintendent of Common Schools a
report of the condition of the schools
in his county, I submit this, myrsecond
annual. report. ,
Sdnor...lEfousts.-Twelve houses have
been - built "dpring the year. Osceola,
that has so lOng needed a better house,
has now
one of the right kind. It is.
by fargthe bestin the county. It is a
&ante building; 80 by 58 feet, two .sto.
ries higheand surmounted bra cupola.
The: lower. story is divided into two
rootnarolle 25,by 80 feet, the other 2 2
by 80 feet, With hat and cloak room s ,
apparatus rooms, &o. The school rooms
are 44 feet in the clear, and are furnish-
ed with seats and desks of the most ap 7
,provell ec tatterns. The upper story is as
.yet tia las. a hall ; the Directors think,- •
ing hatter:the present they - wiltdonly_
need two gradeS.- I am convinced that
before the close of the-year they Will'
finalthemSelves crowded for room, and
that the upper story • will also be used
as school - rooms, The entire'. cost is
about $3,000. They have a fine lot, of
about one acre, and their school bbild
ing is certainly an ornament to their
beautiful village. The Directors de
serve much praise for the liberality,
good taste and real economy displayed
in its erection.
EnRNITIntE.--There has been a mar

tionof furniture during the year: Thir

In ancient languages, the Course is . the
one requiter:l'h) fit a student to, enter a
,first class college,' and he Can prepare
himself in this school to entcr advanced
. classes. In the modern languages, Ital
ian, French, and German, the course is
intended to, be very thorough. The
pupils are taught to speak and - under
stand the language when spoken, and
topead its classic literature. In the
natural sciences, a thorough course is
given, in botany, naturalhilosopby,
chemistry, astronomy an geology.-'.
In what is called Higher nglish, the
i i.)
course, embraces rhetoric, Angie, 111011•

The pupil; it will be seen, Cutninenves

rectly and indirectly, through the whole
course, and graduates, if he'has mecha
nical genius, a thorough pez man, book
keeper and clerk, as well as an accom
plished scholar in all the br itches of a
popular education.
There were in attendance during the
year, 477 scholars, with an
.average at,
tendance du'ring the entire year of 96
per cent. Can this be Lenten in the
State? The Directors havelbe en fortu
nate in securing the servlces of Profes
sor Winters for another yea.
An act was passed during the last ses
sion of the Legislature, kranting to the
Board of Directors of Knoxville the
power to, borrdw money to I build new
school buildings. Large aid commo
dious buildings will be erected during
the comb:4.year, giving to, tie borough
one of the best graded schools in the
dainty. ' . .1
The Directors of Lawrenceville have
remodeled ' and ''thoroughly repaired
their school building, and now have an
excellent school of three grades.
The graded school in Blosisbuig, un
der the management of IL M. Beeles,
is doing a noble work. The one at Ar
'riot,• under the charge of 11,: E. How
land, and the one at Fall Brook, under
the charge of I. L. Sexton, are both ex

the debasing influen e of street educa
tion. It is really a reproa l ch to their
beautiful and wealthy village, that they
are so little interested in their schools.
It is to be hoped that after their rail
road is secured, the people will turn
their attention to their schools.
, Upon the whole, we are proud of our
graded schOols','and'thinkr that in the

• SALARIES.—On no topic d we report
with more pleasure thanu on this.—
•The !salaries of our teachers 're steadily

While-'we rejoice that our achers are

hifiy, the sno w , drifting badly hi very
'many or the districts ; and it is cruel to
compel our lady. teachers to wade the
snow frow house to house, in-search of
a " place to stay." The health of ma
ny of sour lady teachers falls from this
cause alone. Then it is contrary to the
spirit; if not to the letter of the school
law. The law contemplates that,the
property of the district shall school the
children of the district, and that the
children of the poor shall have the
same opportunities of attending school
as the children of the rich. But when
the peer are compelled to board the tea-,
chars if they send to school, this is not
the ease. We think there are many
children kept from school because their
parents can not board the teachers. We
earnestly call the attention of our Di
rectors to this. -Would it not be well to
pass a law prohibiting it altogether? .
Scitoot.'DntroroßS.—lt cannot be
doubted that School Directors are the
" back bone" of our whole school sys
terti; having more power and responsi
bility than any other officer of the sys
tem. Then how 'necessary it is that
they, should . be chosen from the best
talent in the district, irrespective of
party or political influences ; and that
hot lug limo.rted and Jhey accepted
the ofticeZlhe should.. then faithfully'
and eonselent gusty discharge its du
ties, with the same practical shrewd
ness and sound judgment that they
would display• in. the management of
their own private business affairs; re
'niembering that they are the "trustees
for the public;" and the imperative offi
cial obligation resting upon them, is to
discharge their duty in such a way as
will best subserve the public interests
intrusted .to their care. We regret to
say that this, with some of our Direc
tors, is.not the case. They are often
times chosen, not for their peculiar fit
ness toy dis Charge the duties of the of
fice, but bedhuse they belong to "our
party." Again, men are Adected who
have no personal interest in the'school,
(except to keep down the taxes.) In
most• eases, only men who have chil
dren to educate should be chosen for
School Directors. There are of course
exceptional eases. Our Directors, as a
whole, are earnest, true men, ,•laboring
earnestly and •faithfully (and gratui•
tat sly) for the public welfare; spend
ing days and weeks for the good of the
)3440015, , with no other hope of reward
bii tan approving conscience. " Know:
in'g their duty, they do it
has been a decided improvement in the,
time of receiving these reports. When
the Department expressed a desire to
have all these reports flied bythe 20th
of, June, we thought it possible to ob
tain all from our county by that time.
Letters were written to all of the dis
tricts, asking the Secretaries to forward
them. Seventeen responded in time;
all but two were forwarded in July ;
the last was received August 11. The
first,report (received June 6) was from
Kridxvfile, an d 'the last (Aug. 11) from
Tioga township. We hope to receive
them all in June another year.
Examinations. 'Thirty-one public
examinations were held, 370 applicants
were examined, 302 provisional, and 5
professional certificates were granted
Our examinations are almost exclusive
ly written, printed. slips of questions
being used. Our method has been/to
pass the slips upon each hranch to each
member of the class separately ; -care
being take'n to seat them so there can
be nomomnannicating, giving them so
much time upon each branch, 'or in
stance, li hours upon orthography. At
the expiration of the time, the ques
tions are gathered, together with the
manijscripts, and questions upon anoth
er blanch given them ; and so on thro'
the list. , The advantages of the written
system are: It is fairer for the appli
cants; giving them a better opportunity

knowledge on any' branch in which being examined, than by the
oral method. We can see that an ap
plicant may possess a fair knowledge of
arithmetic, for instance, and still fail
upon one ; two,•or three questions ask
ed ; or that,he may answer correctly,
,one, two, or three questions, and still
be wofully deficient. But when re
quired to answer from 20 to 40 ones-
Mons up - oh any particular branch, his
knowledgeopon that branch e must be
pretty thoroughiy,tested. With as large
classes as we sometimes have, (having
'had 40 and 60 in the class at one-time,)
we cannot, with the time that we can
spare, conduct the examination orally
with fairness to the applicant and with
satisfaction to ourself. The objections
to - the written system - are, that appli
cants are apt tO'communicate with each
other. A very little tact used by the
Superintendent-in seating, &c., will
very soon overcome that. Again,. that
your ; qiiestloti, will sometimes go ahead
of you thrmigh the county, giving ap
plicants'a chance to "post up" upon
theni in.advance. -With two or three
sets 'of ,questions, . the examiner need
have. ne'rear of that. Again, that Di

Our teachers, are constantly changing;
old ones leaving the profession, and

teachers need' assistance in 'properly

County Instiluk—Our county Insti
tute, held in Wellaboro on the week
commend )g Freptenther 19, was emi
nently su ceasful; 265 members were
enrolled. ! Owing to circumstances over
which we had no control, our Institute
did not receive that hearty support

that wo rebeived at Tioga the last year.
In the first place, the county Fair was
held upon!lthlisane week. The titne of
the Fair !was changed without' our
knowledge, placing it upon the week of
the Institute; neither the managers of
`the Fair nor ourself knowing that they
came upon the same week, until too -
late to change. This drew attention
sornewhatlfrotn the Institute.
We aFtiVertised that lady teachers
would be !boarded free, (the same as
last year) but owing to the Fair, &c.,
the citiz ns could not takelhem all In

co the eitizens of Welisboro for their

not well he dispensed with.
Eduetitional Work done by other
Agencies.;—State Normal School at
Mcinsfiett t. —The State Normal School
of this district, under the efficient man,
agement, of Professor C. 11. Verrill, is
still flouriShing, and supplying us'with
many excellent teachers. One - hundred
and nine of our teachers during the last
year avililed themselves of Ith excellent
training' As au evidence of Its appro.
elation in our county we imay state
that more than one-li l3 alf of its
graduating class for thi year were from
our county.
Acadd!nles.—Union Academy, the
only one in the county, was burned
upon tini first day of March. Its loss
is severe y felt in that part of the Conn
ty. It was establiShed In 1844, and
since that time has been in a nourish
ing/condition, sending
.forth many ex
cellent h l eachers every year; in fact,
supply . the northern part of the
county ilutost entirely with teachers.
There is not noW an academy In the
county, ticncl we must look to our nor
mai ami graded schools for our teach
PrivatF3 St:110018.—W e are glad to re
port that, the so-called " select schools"
in ou'r cOttuty have about had " their
day." As a rule, they are taught by, a
class of !poorly qualified teachers, or
those who failed to obtain a certificate
to teachl a public school. Of coin's()
there are a few noble exceptions; but
the majVity of such schools
,we can
well do ithout.
The Press.—much valuable assistance
has been; rendered by the press,—for
which they have our warmest thanks.
It has ever been willing to publish gra
tuitously anything that would benefit
the Kilo( Is.
2lforql Instruction)—The Bible has
been re:I( in all or nearly all of our pub
lic schools daily.
Clergy.—Sorne valuable assistance has
been rendered by the clergy. We hope
for more assistance from them In the
Measures Calculated to Promote IM

head, we would respectfully refer to
those presented in our last report.'
Conclusion.—With sincere ' thanks f teri

rible ease dr death from starvation has
just been discovered at Stormy'lle. It
appears that a French woman, who is
attached to O'Brieri's menagerie and
circus, performs among other feats the
cannon trick, as it is styled. • That is,
the woman takes a six-pounder on her
shoo Ider, and a boy gets tip and fires it
off. ThiS little fellow - was the victim
of u nhcard of cruelty. While stopping
at Stormville, this woman tied the lit
tie boy's hands behind his back, and
shut him: up in a room alone. Ho beg
ged the chok of the hotel to put a ladder
up to thelu indow and give him a piece
of bread and butter. She_bad to thro)v
it on the floor, where the boy obtained
it and ate it up. This woman had ano
ther boy which, was her own. He
went and told the woman of the above
manner of getting .food - to him. She
appearedl very angry, and going to the
boy's room, said she ," would not bestir
prised If he had asked for some candy
or cake, but the idea of asking for bread
and butter! Hew dare you'd° so, when
I told yoh if you did I would pound
you ?"'he little fellow begged her not
to whip II ui ; he would not do it again.
He did not look as, though he had a
drop of blood in his uOdy. •
The reason she starved him, was to
prevent him growing any heavier. She
bought him in Paris for' $lOO, and had
no love or feeling for him except to
make money. The doctor who attend
ed him said he died of starvatbn. Par
