THE ROYAL SCHOOL.
Having recently visited the public
schools on their examination day,
yrc went, last week, to see the Royal
School, during its ordinary daily
woiK. We now proceed to give an
account of what occurred tit 'the
time of our visit, icserving, for some
future occasion, any comments
thereon that we may think justifiable.
Having arrived at the door of the
class room of the principal, Rev. A.
Macintosh, be greeted us with the
quury, ''what are you up to?"
Receiving no invitation to enter the
joom, we walked to the. piincipal's
desk and explained what wc were
" up to." The principal's class was
engaged in an arithmetic lesson,
borne of the pupils working on tho
black-boards, and others on slnteB.i
One boy was teaching several others
in a corner of the room, the princi
pal's attention being engaged with
ilu- majority of the class in front of
him. Several sums were given, and
worked correctly or incorrectly.
Questions were asked concerning
them, but no thorough explanation
,of the correct method of working
'them was offered to the pupils. The
last question asked befoic recess
was. how much paper will be te-
quired to cover the walls ol a room
. -T n .nnvn
of which the icnqth anci tteifat were
given. Several answers were shown,
ivhich, of course, were wrong. At
lost the teacher told his class, that
the room was square; they then
knew the breadth, which had not
been previously given them, and
without which the answer could not
have been obtained. It was notice
able also that the room to be papered
had no space allotted for doors or
There were thirty-six boys in the
room, one other, we were told, was
instructing a lower class during the
absence of its teacher. The princi
pal stated that his room composed
the ''fifth, sixth and seventh grades;"
that they had all been "through
fractions," and were now being
taught the "application of, fractions."
He also stated that " the singing of
all the upper department of the
'school was taught in his room,"
"that one of the lady teachers played
for him," and "he conducted and
taught the singing." "He had got
up the petition to thd Board asking
that Mr. Yarndley might be ap
pointed as teachor of music." One
boy seemed much interested in the
advertising columns of our daily
contemporary ; there was a certain
amount of whispering among the
pupils, and a large amount of copy
ing their woik from each other.
The principal explained that " their
good behavior was due to his system
of fines," ( writing lines as a punish
ment) "and his honor list." He
also stated that the members of the
Board of Education had not visited
the school " since last examination
day." The bell then rang for recess,
we thanked the principal for supply
ing, the information he had given,
and left the room, having obtained
the necessary permission to visit the
other class rooms.
Room Two was under the charge
of Mr. Dow, and it w as his last day
at tho school. On arrival at the
door of his room, Mr. Dow came
forward, said " ho was very pleased
to see us," and invited us into his
room. The boys were divided into
two classes and constituted " fourth
ut and fifth grades," (ope being tho
same as one of tho grades in the
principal's room). They wcie tak-
. ing a reading lesson fioro Swinton's
Fourth Reader, the chapter being
" How America was found." The
reading of the pupils was, with the
exception of one hoy, very indis
tinct and scarcely intelligible. They
appeared to be attentive, and were
subsequently asked questions on
what they had read, being allowed
to refer to the open books in their
bands before giving a reply. There
were thirty-two boys in tho room.
In reply to questions the teacher
stated that tho boys in the school
" were not kept up to tho standard
fixed by the Bonrd of Education,"
that he used "Thomson's Arithme
tic" " that arithmetic was the
standard for promotion," that "there
Ir were no regulations for books" and
that "he used hie own judgment in
obtaining any that were required.'
" When the boys came to his room
they were supposed to have been
four years in the school, they did
vi not know fractions, and ho had to"
put tuem through them, xney uscu
j (Cornell's Prirnaiy Geography, Copy
', JBooks numbers two and three, but
thov should be further advanced:
fKey did not learn musio at all ;
knc i101''" r ,nl,sif nmt was not
cipnl objected to the noise made by
them when Mnguig." - .,x
As the teacher had no book of the
" couisc of study," luid down by
the Board of Education, we lent him

lie frankly confessed that some of
the subjects, set flown for the tilth
grridl', weio not taught by him as
tho nunils weic not sufficiently ad
vanced. Duiing our visit to this
room wc had an opportunity of wit
nessing the mode of corporal punish
ment administered. It was as fol
A boy was called up by the teach
er, who, by a gentle manipulation of
his foot, placed the boy in a reclin
ing position over his knee, and then
administered severaf blows from a
piece of flat wood resembling a rule.
The teacher and the boy both ap
peared satisfied with the transaction,
and our questions were answered
without further interruption. The
light and ventilation in this room
were both poor. Having thanked
Mr. Dow for his kindness in inviting
us to his room, and for his willing
ness in replying to our numerous
questions, wc withdrew to room
