The Sci oils of this Ali strict of Nenod on tie first of this month under very favourable auspices. Two new schools Hare been opened in the District eleven being now in operation one of them Oxford Valley being from fall and a Middletown jointly. At Fallsington the directors have opened three schools ii Pri Mary secondary und a grammar Sci icon the latter to be of a More advanced Grade than we have heretofore and to be of Jami to pupils from any part of the District who arc Bufali Clint by advanced and desire to attend. The second Story of the pc i s Valley school House hns been put in order and neatly furnished and a primary school stalled therein so that the District has now seven schools in Ftp ural Ion on tie graded system and Only four not graded. With one exception the houses Are Good though the furniture in several wants renewing. The salaries of thai hours vary from ij5 to 45 dollars per month and the directors have succeeded in procuring pretty Good teachers at these rates though they Are decidedly too Low and yet some districts strange to . Arc Able to get teachers for per month however 1 do not believe Good. Competent teachers can be procured for Sulci paltry compensation. A District superintendent is employed at a salary of 75 dollars who visits the schools regularly once a month and ii District Institute has been kept up for ten or twelve years though the Board of directors has grown so parsimonious for a few years past As to refuse to allow the teachers the time requiring them to make 22 Ali is for a month s salary though formerly two Days each month allowed for Institute. Females receive Tow same salary As males. The Board believing Eliut persons who Cifoni equal services should be entitled to equal remuneration regardless of sox. Most old old teachers Are continued though two of them Jennie Hampton at the Creek and a. L. Spencer at Oxford declined re appoint ment. Miss Hampton has since taken charge of Pine Vilic school and or. Spencer intends spending a year or two fit tie Normal school at West Cluster to Imp inc his Scholastic attain ments and increase his efficiency As a teacher. His place at Oxford Valley will be ably filled by s. H. Calfe of lower Wakefield who hits been out of business for a Short time but who every Way qualified and has the reputation of being one of our Foremost teachers. I think if some person in Netidi District would publish occasionally in the papers of the county Short sketches of the condition of the schools in their respective districts with any matters of interest connected therewith it would be instructive and interesting to Many and in some degree the cause of education in the Community.

To for the Hacks county aet and science association can no longer speak of old Bristol As a finished town ready to be fenced in and White washed that it is alive every one must Sec but that it has now attained any where near the Losili ionian size and importance that it w ill occupy ten hence i cannot for a Munu it believe. What it has been and what it is now we All know. But who can foretell its future even in the next de in any Point of new judging from the past few years i should not like to Prophesy concerning it. And must Bristol pattern after other towns or wait Tor them to any Good thing so As to know what to do i do nut see. The necessity for it nor do i Tomt the men who done the most for the pave will allow such a course to be pursued. That there Are men who have brains Energy and ambition enough to make the town what it ought Long since to have been is evident from the fuel that we now have a weekly paper which is not Only Good but Oue of Tow Best in the country and also from the Groat improve in uts that have been and Are being1 ii ule partic daily in the upper part of Tho Between the Lino of tie Rater of and the River. Give these men and Sill of floors engaged in the Good work Tim and they will he de serving Praise than is already certainly due them for their spirit and work of pro Gress. But i would c ill tie attention of the inhabitant Sot Bristol to urn heading of this communication. Can we not have n society Here that will contribute to the advancement and Good of the people by imparting Inforno Ilion concern ing the arts and so inces so that such knowl Edge May to applied by manufacturers mechanics merchants and also in the House hold we have Here mechanics artists lawyers physicians and mechanics who individually and professionally would be an Honor to any Community. The information relating to the different arts and sciences. Which some of these men arc Able to impart would add greatly to the interest knowledge Progress and profit of All concerned. Take up any of the of tie Flay and there read what marvelous discover ies what wonderful inventions Are daily being brought to the notice of the every Little while completely revolutionizing some old method of working or carrying on business almost the Woi id upside Down but scientific works Are not in i to hands of every Oue. Many who Are Labouring Day after Day doing just what their employers toll them to do arc perhaps As capable As their masters of acl Civ ing something in the Way of Progress had they the same and could they but gain an insight into some of Hose principles which they unconsciously apply daily in their work. It is not Oue class one set nor one color alone that ought to be Bench fitted by such knowledge hut All should be sharers in nature s bounties around them everywhere hut unseen and unknown by so Many on account of circumstances beyond their control. If the la Borer could know More the scientific Princi Ples of his work so As to make applications Oft hem he would feel More interest in and look Forward to achieving Yot grander re sults As the end of his labor could he know something More of the nature and formation of to world he lives in of the great principles and Laws by which it is governed he would re Alize fur More of he Beauty ail use of god s works around him better his own place As Man labor with More pleasure and to a More useful member of society that the great mass of Labouring men know Little or nothing of chemistry geology astronomy or of tin1 aits and sciences generally is no Rea son Why they should not or could not meet to Gether to receive such information from those who do know. And whatever knowledge of this kind May to gained by the honest industrious Labouring Man will Only tend to make him a better and happier better arid Moie useful citizen. Let Tut to be formed such in association of men and women of All branches of Trade and labor let essays be read followed by discus Sion Reading from works on Art and science announcement and explanation of.

This can be done at first with Little or no expense. Meetings might be hold at Tho residences of the cml cars until there wus the ability to rept to room la time a room could be had where the people of Bristol could exhibit works of Art their own Cluro now inventions could be seen and examined by the.

Yesterday was the Day Seledon by the ener Getic congregation of this ancient Church for their Harvest Home. Their band is few but. True and and As Tho Sloran and Iriah of their Long existence have been bravely with stood Tow discouragement incident to thru Tim bag weather could not deter its intrepid Mem Bers from attending this pleasant gathering. But after the Long familiarity with Rainy excursions picnics and jubilees generally which Bucks county yeomen Are favored with we should accept it As the inst thing for us and enjoy it As our own Peculiar Blessing. There was no great hat the lowering Clouds did not empty heir contents but there was intense relict that so Many of the fint Honi Lud friends at a distance staid at Home.
