The Studies of the first Term are, for thc most part, those usually taught in the Public Schools of the State. In the other two Terms, the Students, besides attending to many of the higher branches, Icarn the Theory amI Practice of Teaching. Skill in acquiring and skill in imparting knowledge is a distinctive feature of the course.

EXPENSES, AID, &c. Tuition is gratuitous to those "'ho design to become Teachers in the Public Schools of the State. To those from other States, who do not become Teachers in this, a fee of ten dollars per Term is charged for tuition .â&#x20AC;˘ The State appropriates a thousand dollars a year for each of the Normal Schools, to aid those Students of the Commonwealth who find it difficult to meet the expense of attending one of these Institutions without assistance This aid is not granted during the first thirteen weeks of the course. Afterward, applicants for aid may expect to receive it as follows: those who reside not over twenty miles 'from the School, fifty cents per week j those residing between twenty and thirty miles, one dollarj and those over thirty miles, one dollar and fifty ccnts per week. If, however, the number of applicants in any Term hould be greatcr than to allow of these rates of distribution, out of the regular appropriation for the Term, that ammt11t will be distributed in the proportion of these rates. Applications for this aid are rcquired to be made to the Principal, m writing, with good references. Board is usually two dollars and seventy¡five cents per week, exclusive of fuel and lights; and one dollar and fifty cents is requiloed of every Student, at the middle of each Term, to meet incidental cxpenses. It is expected also, that each Student will fumish himself with a copy of Lippincott's "Gazcttccr of the 'World," and with some other smaller works, the whole cost of which may amount to seven dollars. All other Text-books are furnished to the Student frce of charge. Besides the Text-books, the Institution fiunishes ne31'ly five hundred volumes of valuable works, for reference in the various departments of education. This collection, though small, is incl'easing, and is rendering very essential service to the Students of the Institntion. And we would invite the friends of education who would like to increase our means of laboring successfully to mect the wants of the State, to remember our Library and Geological collection. Any donations to these would be most thankfully recehoed, am! put to immediate use.

BRIDGEWATER NORMAL SCHOOL.

I will mention ill this connection, that, during the year, several publishers have gratuitously furnished the Institution with sets of books for whole classes; thus rendering us essential aid, and naturally opening the way to a more extensive use of their publications. Single volumes placed ill our Library, are sure to gain a careful examination. The School is open at all times to the public, and the friends of education are made welcome within it. And; unuer the direction of the Visitors, and the Secretary of the Board, a Public Examination will be held at the close of the present Term, on MONDAY and TUESDAY, July 23<1 and 24th.
