dangerous men And when the aye in which we live is so strongly marked by all old tions appear heaving from their and all new ones seem unsettled if we would be pre- served from that change for the worse that has been the fate who have preceded us ers for general education liy this not only would the cause of iI education be promoted but those to whom are entrusted the important instructing our youth and who in of some Uy our it is required of old the destinies of our state would receive that support and that respect to which they would justly be entitled Your committee wen further of opinion that to secure the permanent establishment as soon as may be convenient to future prosperity of any system of education provide for establishment of schools throughout the in such manner as that the poor may be aught and thai the arts and sciences shall be promoted in one or more of learning From the date of that i ament down till he fourth of A- no legislative provision ol a ire no al nature was made was arsed entitled Then er an act An act to provide tor the education of the poor From the passage of this to so recent a period as no further at tempt to fulfil the requirements of the constitution was made Then however an act was sed entitled An act to provide more ally for the education of the poor gratis and for laying the foundation of a general system of education throughout this commonwealth tins art the one of tiie Ith of April was repealed yet the act of March not suffered to go into and was repealed in two years and the former one revived and is now in force the only and lame provision of a general we have upon so important a subject This act only provides for the education of those children between the ages of live and twelve as if in that period they would learn enough to enable them to act their part in rhc several stations in winch they may be through with to and credit to the state of which they are citizens are contemplated within its provisions parents are unible for their education as if by distinction between the wealthy and the poor the latter would more eagerly adopt the provisions of an act thus obnoxious to them None are

sister commonwealths have not been behind her But in tiie strife of ding-states which should be foremost in the cultivation of the mind or which lead in tiie improvement of the human heart she has scarce been seen or felt or heard In those spates wherein common schools have been established the advancement of the in- ual and mural powers of people have kept pace with their advance in tion and in greatness But wilh us the mind has been neglected a long career of prosperity too by tiie degraded state a- mongst us By the tact that of Jour children tiie and years it it tint umre tlian two and

believe they have been highly beneficial Appropriations have also been made annually to the aid of colleges universities and academies yet from their nature the uf those institutions can only be enjoyed by the few the great mass from many causes being necessarily ded Tiie private throughout our state have been found inadequate to the wants of our people Jn many places some ment is wanting to an uneducated people to persuade them their children in the population is too sparse to port schools and wherever schools have been are made of their in- owing in the want competent and by which their better mav he secured and that lh periods during which they are opened mav only be longer but succeed each other with more To remedy these evils the of been ol at ill t ir 111 of a jn it must derive its from means other than voluntary contribution or tax alone In the states in which common schools been opened t huir support hns been provided for in various ways in Massachusetts tho several towns are compelled to raise the money by taxation In Connecticut they are supported by a common fund and in New York by a common school fund of the proceeds of which annual distribution is made amongst their several school districts on condition of heir raising by taxation a sum equal to their distributive share of that fund fn Connecticut their common school fund amounts to In New York their fund amounts to about and during the last year scholars were taught an average of 8 months and at the expense of The latter system was left optional with people dopt and in the first few years but few schools were established bur they have gradually increased and arc now extended over all the vast territory of that State Your committee deeming it no ment to profit by the example of other states recommend the system we may adopt in a way somewhat similar to that of New York that a common school fund shall be funned and any deficiency shall be ded for by the districts hereafter to be Thus whilst the common fund will operate as a great inducement to the support of schools the contributions of those ed in each district will ensure a deeper rest in the success of their schools than might prevail were they altogether dependant upon the donations of the public The means for the establishment of such a fund they believe to be within the reach of this legis- lature without a resort to taxation or to the concerns of the wealth From the most accurate information they have been able to obtain there is due the commonwealth from the holders of patented lands a sum exceeding two millions of dollars and that notwithstanding the low rate that land is now sold hy the state from lands yet vacant and unappropriated a very considerable sum in addition to the above can be raised The payments from these sources to the treasury have been annually increasing and during last year amounted to If the money tints arising were transferred and pledged to the support of common schools within three years or four at the utmost the fund would increase to a sum sufficiently large thereafter to warrant the yearly dis- of a considerable sum to their port and that sum would increase with the increase of Use fund and the spread of the schools throughout the state This your committee believe would be decidedly preferable to that of taxation if the latter would be adopted there is too much reason to fear that the act so providing for a fund would become obnoxious and soon be repealed and if such would not be the result yet a fund could not fluid be raised that for many years would warrant a distribution Your com- have been governed in the belief that a system to be effectual must commence op- within three or four years The setting isido of tho proceeds from land for the support of schools will in some sure have the good effect of seen ring the ment of the money thus due at as early a period as those who are delinquent may find it practicable This disposition will be moted when they are assured that they are but providing for the future welfare of their children that the money thus paid after ving aided in the common operations of and in great purposes of internal improvement will flow back to them again securing to children a good education and making diem wiser and better citizens And hy this disposition of the money thus arising your committee no will ho felt as before mentioned It js recommended that the money thus paid should be loaned to tiie common wealth at an annual interest of 5 per otherwise directed and that until the fund shall have increased the upon the sums shall be loaned in hk until that Jo ho of the paid and the we have rance of our state lie prosperous The chains and HOW IT v be and in the full of operation but surplus by
