Soxktbm so for the Ladies A new invention has
recently appeared, whkh.alliiough urcful to every
body, ia specially claimed by the Ladies, as being ex
actly suited to their auU and requirements. They
are delighted with Sickling's Prepared Clue. It
brings up no diBagrecublc associations of ttckj glue
pots and suflng odors, but is merely a clear traaspa
rcnt liquid, in a pretty little bottle, with a small ac
companying brcsh, Ct to stand on the daintiest toilet
table in all the land, with cologne and China trifl.-s.
And so useful it proves, too, if any accident happens
to the ten thousand little knick-knacks that laJies de-'
light in. No sending to the manufacturer for re
pairs, at an expense scarcely less thin would attend
ihe purchase of a new ar.icle. A few of tbe Crystal
drops, skiUfuUy applied by fair lingers, w.ll set all
right. For furniture, for work-boxes, for books, for
everything, it is a perfect little family physician I
Tbe amount of money that one of tuce bottles can
save in a month, would seem almost incredible, and
Ladies rely on their Prepared Glue as a sort of a ma
gician that can tt&ct everything. And they know,
too. When any article of domestic fjrm meets this
enthusiastic sanction at their hand3 that Spalding's
Prepared Glue has recelvtd, you may be pretty sure
t is tometmng worth havicg on your closet shelf.

Eeport of the Special Committee on School.
5 To the City CounciL
The Committee appointed under,, the
Joint resolution to investigate the various
complaints made against the management
of the Public Schools, make the following
report: " " f
The Committee have Lf-en anxious to
give the subject a tboioujrh investigation;
and to pass by no charge cr suggestion that
might be made by r.ny person either in
regard to the general system vr the prac
tical opcratio a of these important insti
tutions. They accordingly examined the
nc merous publications in the newspapers
of the city, upon this subject; conversed
freely in private with many citizen?, atd
extended a general invitation to the pub
lic to come before the committee, and
present such complaints or suggestions
as any person might Lave t;j make.'
. So far as the committee have been
able to ascertain from these source,
the objections urged against the
present system and management of the
Public Schools, may be staled as follows:
1st. It is charged that the Public
Schools are shameluily deficient in im
parting to pupils an elementary knowl
edge of reading, grammar, geography and
2nd. That there are frequeat and un
necessary changes in the text books used
by the pupils.
3d. That books are purchased by the
Board cf Education at cne price and s.-ld
to the pupils at a higher price that
favoritism is exercised iu the sale cf books
to pupils, and no accounts kept of books
4tl. That the financial transactions of
the school department and the manner of
keeping the accounts, afford easy oppor
tunities of defrauding the Corporation of
large amounts of money.
5th. That the powers of the Superin
tendent are too large, to-wiu in rixhig
salaries of teachers, suspending them,
making changes in books, Scc, and that
he has financial duties which he should
Gth. That there is unncessary extrava
gance in the management of the school.-?.
7th. That pupils are admitted to th
schools who are not entitled undPr the
law to attend them.
The committee believe that th above
classification embrace?! all the complaints
and objections they have heard made
against the management of the Public
Schools. They will proceed to take them
up item by item and state the conclusion
tnc committee have arrived at. The first
charge in the list is more important than
all the bdlance, as a saautelut deficiency
in imparting an elementary knowledge
of reading, grammar, geography, aud
arithmetic, would defeat the very object
for which the schools were created, and
would render them an expensive nuisance.
The commute accordingly spent morethan
a week in visiting the dili'crent schools,
and gave them the most thorough exami
nation they could in that length of time.
The pupils were examined by the teach
ers, by visitors and by different members
of the committee. The committee were
awu2"i that public examinations are gen
erally very poor tests of scholarship, and
consequently avoided, as much as possible
the routine usually' followed on such oc-
casions. J.ne ooject was to test tne tnor
oughness of the teaching and how far the
pupils understood the subjects they had
(studied. The questions were not con
fined to those in the books, and were cal
culated to show how far the pupils has
been taught not only the rules laid down
in the text books, but which is more mi-
Dortant, the reasons of those rules. Ihe
committee were well pleased with these
examinations; of course not equally so
with all the schools, as some exhibited
mere thoroughness in teaching than oth-
ers. isut take tuem aitogetuer, tne com
mittee have no hesitation iu saying that
the public schools of Nashville are the
best schools that they nave ever oeen
acquainted with. The reading was re
markably good the children almost
universally enunciate in a clear, distinct
and natural tone of voice, and with very
little of that hesitation so common in
young readers. TLe spelling was very
cood. In grammar, antnmetic ana ge
ography, as well as algebra and the other
more advanced studies, tae pupus are wen
instructed: In some of the rooms the
committee were delighted with the accu
rate and thorough knowledge displayed
by riiany of the pupils, in these branches.
Qi course there are some children so
constituted that they will not or cannot
learn anywhere, and there are doubtless
such cases in the public Kcnoots, uut tne
above remarks apply to the greatmass of
tho pupils. The committee was less
pleased with the writing than anything
else they 6aw. The copy books are kept
with great neatness, but except in a lew
of the rooms, there was not such im
provement in writing as the committee
would like to see. ine committee was
well pleased with the order kept in the
schools, the neatness aud cleanliness of
the rooms, the cheerfulness manifested by
all the pupils and their readiuess to suu
mit to the examination. Some of the
rooms arc too much crowded, and some of
the teachers probably have more pupils
than they can do lull justice to; out tins
. . ... , i - i i . i
it is paid, will De remedied wneit me
lloward School liuilding is finished.
Upon the whole, there is nothing of which
Nashville has more cause to be proud of
than her public schools, and the commit
tee would earnestly recommend to the
citizens generally, to visit aud to
examine them for themselves. They are
satisfied that many of the complaints
made aga;nst the schools, originate with
persons who eeldom or never visit them,
and are ignorant of the mode of teaching
actually i-ursued. The schools deserve
more attention than they have hePt):ore
received, and will am i ly repay anjr one"
for the trouble of a visit and examination
of their practical operation.
It is said that too frequent and unnec
essary changes are made in the text books
used n the public schools. The commit
tee could not go into a general examina
tion of the various text books, so as to
report on the mciitor demerit of each
chaige. They are satisfied, however,
that the changes are not so frequent as
many persons have supposed. Iu Geog
raphies, lor instance, it has been sia ed
that seven changes have lb m made, when
in fact only two have occurred. To un
derstand this matter, it is necessary to
state that the Geographies used in the
Public Schools constitute a series. Ue
ginners are first given a Erir-ier cf Gepg.
raphy, which is easi-'y understood, and
ia intendpd as the first lesson on the sub
ject in the primary department. As the
pupil advances, and after finishing the
Primer, an Intermediate Geography is
placed in his hands, and finally he com
pletes the study in a still more advanced
Geography the three Looks making ona
series. Ihe firft series used in the public
schools was composed of Goodrich's
Primer of geography and his larpe geog
raphy, Morse's geography being the In
termediate. In Feb 167 Colton & Fitch's
Introductory and Modern S c hoo 1
Geography were, introduced in . place
of the iirst apd "second of the above
series this was th? first change.
In Jauuary, 1800, Golfon and
Fitch's were laid aside ; and Warren's
smaller and larger Geographies substi
tuted, this was the second and last change.
The committee is of opinion that changes
in text boots should te made as seldom
as ppssibl and never without very ur
gent reasons. It is sometimes necessary
i -i proper," however, to substitute new
books for old ones, and this is the case
In some studies more than in others. In
Geography for instance, changes are con
tinually being made in the boundaries of
countries, states and empires, and in the
size of towns. Additions are constantly
being made by new explorations, to our
knowledge of Geography. . In other,
studies there is progress and improvement
and new systems, . better arrangements
and clasifications of the subject make it
proper to introduce new books. The
propriety of each change must be left to
the good sense - and discretion of the
Board of Education assisted by the teach
ers and the superintendent, who are
presumed to understand the subjects.
The Superintendent has no power to in
troduce a netr l.tok int-v th srjiOflbi
this tegprnifii!itv'-is'cimtided alone to
the Board of -Education.-' :-The practice
.of the Boai-d, when it is proposed to
chaage a text book 13 to refer the matter
to a committee of teachers and ; nuperin
tenJeutwho examine the new book com
pare ii with the old one and report back
to the' Bord. Thin report is examined
by the 13.:ard of Education, the. differ-'
cuccs are looked into and if the utility
of the change 13' apparent, it :is made by
order of the Board. The committee know
of no better plan to suggest than thi-s.-
They believe the power is where it should
be aud they have no reason to think that
it has ever been injudiciciously or im
properly exercise-L ,. ;.!.:,
The next chargejs that books are pur-oha-died
by the ioard of Education and
sold in "the schools at an advance and.
that favoritism, in this way, is not only
possible but is actually shown in practice.
There seems to be ar. impression with
some persons, that a regular speculation
is carried on in the sale of books, by the
Superintendent or some one else connect
ed with the s.-hools. The committee is
satisfied that this is altogether incorrect
and that great injustice bus been done to
the management of the schools iu this
matter. The general rule upon this sub
ject is to require parents to buy books
and they are left to their own choice as
to where they are purchased the schools
do not buy books, but leave that matter
to ihe parents and booksellers. This is
the general rule. The exceptions to it
are lirst that indigent pupils who aro
unablo to purchase,' are suppliedat the
public expense. "When a class is alxnit
to begin a study, they are directed to
procure the necessary books it is been
ly the teacher that some of the pupils
fail to supply themselves and upon in
quiry he liuds that they are unable to do
so. The tea-.-her then sends au order to
the Superintendent for the number re
quired an ' he gives an order on it book
store the books are purchased, charged
to the Board of Education aud are dis
tributed by the teacher among the indig
ent pupils for whom they were intended.
It frequently happens tliat some of the
pupils thus supplied, afterwards get tho
money and pay for the books, which
money is handed by the teacher to the
Superintendent and by him paid ever to
the Board of Education. In this way the
Board of Education sometimes get credit
in their accounts with the Superinten
dent, for items of 0 S9 S10 ic. The
reason why an account of stock or a reg
ular account current of these ni iters is
not kept, must be apparent from the bare
statement of the lac is, the nature of the
trausuction makir g it necessary to reiy
upon the honessy of the teachers to ac
count for these small sums thus received.
Another exception to the general rule
against the purchase of books by the
school, is that in a few cases in making
changes in text books, the publishers
have proposed to take the eld books in
exchange and f urnish the new ones at a
very small charge. Thus when the
AVarren's Geographies were introduced,
the publishers agreed to furnish all the
pupils who hid the old Geographies
charging in exchange 15 cents for the
smaller und 30 cents for the larger. The
retail prices of these books are 45cts and
SI. The Board of Education in order to
save as much expense as possible in
making the change accepted the ofi'er and
purchased a quantity of the Geographies.
It is not true, so far as the committee
have been able to learn, that any of the
Geographies thus purchased have been
sold to pupils at one dollar each or that
they have been sold at all except by way
of exchange for the old books as intended
when the purchase was made. A simi
lar arrangement was made upon the in
troduction of Colton & Fitch's Geogra
phies. It has been thought best for the
Board of Education to furnish ink, cray
ons, &c, to the school at the public ex
pense. A lot of 'noiseless slates' was also
purchased and now constitute a part of
the school furniture. The above shows
the character of 'speculation' on the part
of the Board, the Superintendent, or
teachers so far as the committee could
The only suggestion the committee
have to offer under this head is that when
teachers send orders for books for indi
gent pupils, they be required to give
the names of the pupils for whem the
books arc intended and that these orders
be filed with the accounts of the book
sellers when they are presented to the
Board of Education.
The next charge is in relation to the
financial tranactions and themanner of
keeping tho accounts by the Board of
Education. The cemmittee have exam
ined this subject and believe that there is
no department of the city government, in
which the finances are more carefully
guarded and the accounts kept with more
system and regularity than by the Board
of Education. Every acccount against
the school department, except such as
are fixed by law, such as the salaries of
teachers, &c, goes through the following
process: It is first presented to the Board
of Education at their regular monthly
meetings. If it is not known to be cor
rect by the members, it is referred to a
committee who examine into the facts
connected with it, and if found to be correct
it is allowed and entered on the minutes of
the Board. The accounts and the bocks
containing the minutes are then handed
to the Itccorder, who makes out a check
upon the City Treasurer. A memoran
dum of the check is kept in the check
book of the Recorder and when the check
is handed to the party entitled to it, his
receipt is taken for the amount upon re
ceipt book kept for that purpose. The
check is then countersigned by the Pres
ident of :he Board of Education and pre
sented lor payment to the City Treasurer.
It is afterwards returned and kept on
file with the Recorder, together with the
receipt and the original account. The com
mittee cannot see what additional guard
could be thrown aroundth s plan. Howev
er, the finances of a corporation may be
gaurded, it comes at last to this, that
you must trust mainly to the integrity
and discretion of auditing committees in
tho fllowance of accounts. - The com
mittee is well satisfied tnat the Board of
Education have performed this responsi
ble duty witl the utmost good faith and
discretion and that the interests of the
corporation have at all times been
guarded by them. '
The next complaint is that the Super
intendent has too much power, to wit in
fixing the salaries of teachers, suspend
ing them, making changes in books c
Tne Superintendent has no power to fix
salaries or make changes in books, but
these matters are entirely under the con
trol of the Board of Education. It is true
they sometimes appoint him on commis
tecs to consider these subjects and no
d;ubt consult him as to bis views which
ccurse your committee believe to be right
and proper. The Superintendent would
certainly be very poorly qualified for his
po itxn, if he was not able to make val
uable EUggesti jus in these matters. By a
rule adopted by the Mayor end Board of
Aldermen, 25th Dec, lb"54, the Superin
tendent has the power to suspend teach
ers or pupils, in wbich case he shall im
med'ately make a written report of the
samo to the President of the Board of
Education. Your committee can readi. y
conceive of cases in which the exercise of.
this power would be absolutely necessary
and think it a rula that should not be
dispensed with. No teacher has ever yet
been suspended, however." under , the
The financial duties of the Superintend
ent of which so much complaint has been
made, consists in the main, in attending
to, and paying for, small repairs on the
different school buildings and which are
of almost daily occurrence. WudowV
are broken, locks get out of order, desks'
need little repairs, brooms, dusters, buck
ets, dippers, &c., Ac, must be bought and
as the Superintendent visits the difier
ent rooms, he attends to these little mat
ters, pays c dime for this, and twenty
five cents for that, and . presents Iris ac
count, with all the items to the Board of
Education, who examine it and allow it
if they are satisfied of its correctnesss.
The total j amount ol these transactions
" would not reach" fSiX. T" The" Superinf
tt-udenthas also I attended to the pur4
chase of the books, instruments, ink
chalk, c . which the Board- has ordered
iorn the North '. In all such cases; how
ever, a list of the ar'icles is first 'made
out I j the Board atid the prices usually
fixed before hand. In all purchases made
by tho Superintendent, the accounts are
exaurned by the Board before being al-f
lowed. " These -matters are attended to
without extra charge by tbe Superintend
ent; do" not interfere with his other duties
and as they are not of sufficient magnitude
to justify the employment of a person
under a salary, to perform them, yoar
committee epproveofthe course pursued
by the Borru of Education in this regard.
Your committee will here add that they
heartily commend the zeal, patience and.
faithfulness with which thee e extra-official
duties have been performed by the
Superintendent; Mr. Pearl.
TLe committee have found no evidence
of extravagance in the purchases made by
the Board of Education,- for tho public
schools. On the contrary, they are of
opin:on that the Board have invariably
guarded the interests of the corporation
and of parents with extreme care. The
interest that they have manifested in this
matter, is deserving of great praise. The
particular instances of alleged extrava
gance, which have been brought to the
notice of the committee, are of too tri
vial a character to merit a separate ex
planation of the several charges.
As to the complaint that pupils are ad
mitted to tho schools who are not entitled
by law to attend them, the committee
have had some difficulty in arriving at the
facts as fully as desired. The rule on
this subject is that no pupil is entitled to
admission, whose pareut or guardian does
not reside within tne corporation limits of
the city. In the large number of chil
dren who attend the schools, it is a matter
of some difficulty to guard against the
violation of this rule in all cases. The
committee are satisfied that the rule has
sometimes been violated, but to what ex--tent
thej have not been able 10 ascertain.
1 arenas sometimes, living in the corp
ration at the beginning of the session,
start their children and afterwards move
outside the limits and continue to send o
the Schools, without the removal being
made known to the teachers. 2o doubt
pupils have at times been en ered,
who had no right from the beginning to
attend the scho Is, their admission Lemg
affected either by dcsiQn on the part of
pa enfs or from ignorance a- to the law
on the subject. Tne Bourd Ji Lducuoi
have always insirucied the ita .e. s to
guard as strutly as poos bie niuu .1 oucu
cases. Ilia .uperi.teuueut nuo inform
ed the coiniuittte that he has in a few
instances admitted puoiis wh did not
reside . in the corporation, Ilis state
ment to ihe committee was that at the
earnest and repeated solicitations of
parents and sometimes the children
themselves, his sympathies have at times
been so enlisted that he has consented to
the admission of pupils who were not en
titled under the law. lie further states
that the children thus admitted by him
would not exceed twelve in number since
the Schools were organized, that they
were either orphans or children of parents
who professed to be unable to educate
them in any other way either from want
of means or want of other schools; and
finally that these admissions have not
been made when the schools were there
by incommoded. In the case of Mr. Bar
ry's child who was admitted to the
schools and which was published recent
ly in the Patriot, both the fcuperintend
ent and Mr Barry were aware that the
child could not legally become a pupil in
the S.iiool us its paient resided outside
the limits of the corporation.
The committee are of opinion that the
rule as to the admission of pupils should
be strictly and universally enforced and
that no exception should ever be made
without the express consent of the City
Council, very urgent solicitations are fre
quently made in this matter and it often
seems a very hardjease, strictly to enforce
the law. And although the committee
are convinced that the Superintendent in
admitting such pupils, was actuated
alone by motives of kindness and has
erred on the side cf humanity, yet they
disapprove his action in this matter, and
again urgt rigid adherence to the law On "
The superintendent is no dcubt some
times imposed upon in regard to the resi
dence of c'lildrt-n and the cemmittee rec
ommend that it be made the duty of the
teachers to inform themselves as to the
limits of the corporation, residence of the
upils, andimmedia ely report the name
of every one illegally in the Schools.
They also recommend the passage of an
act by .he Ci'y Council, making the vio
lation of the law upon this subject by pa
rents or others a finable offence - - -
Tho committee recommend that au
thors, book-sellers and advocates of new
systems of instruction shall not be allow
ed to visit the schools or teachers during
school hours for the purpose of exhibit
ing or advertising their intellectual
In relation to the compensation of
male and female teachers, the committee
are of opinion that their salaries should
be equalized, as far as possible. They
can see no good reason why a female
should receive less pay for the same ser
vices and talents than a male, although
the custom is of almost universal preval
ence. Before closing the report, the commit
tee beg leave to refer to the Board of
Education. These gentlemen receive no
compensation for their services; their
position is one of great responsibi lity,
requiring in an eminent degree, the ex
ercise of patience, dilligence, impartiality
and intelligonce. In the opinion of the
committee tbey have performed the r
duties faithfully and well, and in a man
ner that entitles them to the gratitude of
the citizens of Nashvdb.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
