THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
Now that all the public school
teachers in the Kingdom have buck
led on their armor for the work of
another term, it will not be out of
place to make :i few remarks concern
ing the late examinations and the
educational system of the country
generally. A public examination,
such as the different schools passed
at the end of their last term is a
practice long ago established in this
country, but its eflicac' is question
able as a just opinion of the capabi
lities of the pupils can not be formed
from what is seen and heard on such
a day and a visitor cannot gain an
- idea of the actual work performed
or improvement made during the
previous months. In the first place
the children are nervous in the pre
sence of so many strangers, and this
is especially the case here, where a
large number of the native element
means noise and confusion. To
such an extent was this the case at
Pohukaina School that the Princi
pal, was obliged to discontinue her
exercises after frequently begging
for silence, but what was exihbited of
the carefully compiled programme,
showed untiring zeal on her part,
the musical and calisthenic exercises
being better than those in any of the
Another reason why public exami
nations are unjust is because they
demand an unusual and unnecessary
amount of drilling on some single
lesson to be recited on the eventful
daj' yet this was not every where the
case, as some teachers left the
choice of a lesson to one of the au
dience. A far better plan for those
really interested would bo to visit
the schools at different times during
the term and notice the progress
from interval to interval, 'leaving the
last day, as remarked by one tench
. or, to be " a sauce to the pudding
and to form a first-rate dessert after
the solid work of the term."
Of the literary exercises those at
the Royal- School showed the most
careful study and also exhibited
considerable talent. The enjoyment
of the- day was greathy marred how
ever by the shuttling of feet over
. head and ti din of voices from the
windows and doors, which were
block aded by spectators. Another
t noticqablc drawback at this school
' was the utter want of ventilation in
the rooms, the ceilings being gene-
rally low and some of the rooms
very poorly lighted so that the com
fort of the pupils is not considered
as it should be. One means for
t teachers to obtain success is to
' make the school room as attractive
and comfortable as possible, this
however is not entirely within their
A beginning has been made to
teach the sciences in the Fort Street
Schools, to make this a success the
lessons should be given as much as
possible from objects and not from
books. We should also like to see
some effort made to teach a boy to
become n mcchanio or an artisan.
We quote a few words from an ud
dre88 delivered before the free In
stitute at Worcester, Massachusetts
in 1874 on the subject of schools for
artisans. "The establishment of
these schools has been an important
step in human progress, not because
any great advantage has been gained
in the cultivation of mechanical skill,
but because the future mechanic ac
quires culture of the mind as well as
skill of the hand." It is of course
not possible to do everything but
small beginnings are often produc
tive of great results. We think that
,it would be beneficial if the Inspec
tor General of schools were to pub-

to the Cruelty to Animals case tried
in the Police Court yesterday
wherein it was shown that no blame

think it may be said that it is a mat

not to drive his horse again. This
prevents an honest man from mak

The Court did not tell the de
fendant in the ease referred to that
he must licit drive the horse, but

if he drove it and the matter was

testimony, the animal was proved a

on Wednesday of a non-descript animal

was too thin for it is well known that
the animal is a turtle from Christmas

there, with its new King, what excellent
