STATE CONVENTION OF THE
FRIENDS OF FDUCATION.
We invile the attcntion of our rcaders to
thc call which will bc fuund in nnotlicr column
for a convcntion of the friends of cducntion. It
will bc rccollcctcd that the Tcmperancc con.
vcntion, which mel at Montpelier during thc
scssion of thc Legislature, appointcd another
convcniion on tlie subject of Temperance to be
hcld at Middlebury on the 12th of January ncxt.
Tlin sclection ofthc day after this mcetin
ths 13ih of Jar.uarv for a convcntion for thc
purpose of discussing " the cducational wants
and intcrests of Vermont," appcars to us to lc
excccdingly happr. The best friends of f-du-cation
and thc varrr.est advocatcs of Temper
ance, will hefound to constitute, in gcncral, the
same body of men ; and thcre is no way in
which so large an asscmblago of inlclligcnt
patrons of bolh theso intcrests can be sccurcd,
a.s by such an arrangcmcnt of thc mcctines as
will permit thcm both to bu attendcd without
thc cxpcnse of two journeys.
To say nothing at prcscnt on the subjcct of
Tcmperancc, thcre ncvcr has becn a time wbcn
thc friends of Education in this Statc, wcro
called upon for prompt and eflicient action, by
motivcs so prcssing as ihose which now ur"c
thcm to take immcdiatc mcasurcs for tho ad-
vancemcnt of this causc. The subjVct was
brought bcfore tlic legislature in a very nppro
priate and iutercsting manncr by the Govtrnor,
and thc legislature (as may be scen by rcfcr
cncc to the ablc report of thc chainnan of thc
committcc on Education,) has placcd thc sub
jcct in such a posiiion as to make a dircct np-
pcal to the peoplc for an cxprcssion of their
opinion and thcir wishcs. In thc discussion of
this sibicct bytho mcmbcrs of the legislature,
it wai said ihat Jacls arc what wc want, as thc
basis of action. Facts thcn, lut us have. Thc
best mclhod of collecting lacts, would undoubt
cdly bc the adoption of such n course bv thc
Siatc govcrnmcnt as would causc this to bc
done by thc operalion of law. But in the ab-
scnce of suitablc arrangemcnis for this purpose,
ori the part of tho Stalc, somelhing may bo ac
complishcd by individual cfTort. We hopc,
therefore, ihat those who attcnd the proposcd
convcntion will comc prcparcd, as far as possi
ble, to cxhibil the present condition of educa
tion in thcir rcspcctive districts. When the
facts which have becn called for shall be fully
collucted and fairly statcd, thcre is no doubt it
will be found, that whilo in relation to the great
producinfj interest of Agriculture, Ver't stands
in the first rank among the membcrs ofour con-
federacy, in regard lo Education, she has becn
alrcady oulstripped by several, if not many of
her sister States. Somethinp- has been dene bv
thc statc for common schoois ; but for want of
ajudicious appropriation of tho funds devotcd
to this imporlant object, and of a well digestcd
and thorough system, these schoois are in'a
feeble and languishing condition. Our Acad.
emies arc, if possible, in as'.ill more dcplorable
statc Without any plan of study, without ad.
cquato funds, and without thc indispensable
rcquisite ofslability in regard to tetchcrs, (we
spenk not of particular seminaries, but of thc
Academics in general) they are not at all fitted,
in their present condition to answer the pur
pose for which they were designed. As to our
Colleges, it is wcll known, that notwithstanding
thc interest which the people have shown in
thcm an interest which has been testified by
many noblc instances of private munificencc
thcy have becn long famishing for want of
If our State is capable of taking the lead in
regard to Agriculture, why should she be left
behind in the far more important work of Edu
cation 1 It is not for want of matcrial, but of
the best method of working it. Vermont is as
rich in mlnd as she is in soil, and with suitablc
advantages, tho products of the oae will be
found to bo as abundant and as superior, as
alrcady have been those of thc otlier. If any
pnc doubts this, fct hiin turn to thc triennial
catalogucs ofour Collcgcs, and traco their grad.

halls, the courts of Justice, the pulpits and the
Institutions of learning of almoat cvery stalc IU
