VEEMONT DAJLXY TKANSCRIPT, OCTOBER 21, 1S6S.
C I RCULAR .
The attention of Town Superintendents,
Teachers, and others interested in the cnu.o of
popular education in tho State of Vermont is
called to Section 2, Act No, !2, of the Lhwh of
Vermont for the year 18G0, which rends as fol
Section 2. Thu Hoard of Education nro
hereby authorized, and it is made their duty, on
or belorc July 1, 18(57, and on or before said date
every lifth year thereafter, to select a list of
such grammars, geographies, arithmetics, his
tories of this Statu and the United States, phil
osophies, algebras, readers and spellers, not
exceeding ono book of ii kind in each branch, as
they shall deem best suited for instruction and
use in the district schools In thU State, in each
of said branches : and shall cause tho list so
selected to bo published in all the news apers
Jmblishcd in tlie State, during tho month of
(anuary next following the making of such se
lection ; and also to be inserted in each school
register issued after one )onr from tho nmkin?
of such selection ; which list, so selected, shall
be acid remain authoritative and i hiding upon
the Board ol Education, superintendents and
teachers, and during llvu years from and alter
November 1, 1SCS, and each ilvo years thereaf
ter ; and superintendents and tendinis shall
recommend for use in tho district schools, as
new books shall become necei-sary for instruc
tion in tho branches named, no other than tho
books included in said 1 iht so selected and pub
lished, Tho following is an extract from tho lieport
ot tho Board of Education, for the year 1807,
pago 8 :
Mitchell's First Lessons, Primary, ami Inter
mediate Geographies were adopted, lor these
reasons, in brief; thu simplicity and clearness
of tho text, the gradual nod constant advance
ment from the primary truths to tho higher de
partments of geographical knowledge, the con
ciseness and completeness of the definition,
the elegance and accuracy of the maps, the at
tractiveness of the pictorial illustrations, and
the uniform method of treating topics that are
similar to each other. Since the adoption of
these books, the publishers have taken meas
ures to prcpaio a special edition of the Interme
diate Geography for use in the schools of Ver
mont. This edition will contain a new quaito
map of tho State, engraved on copperplate ; and
four pages of letter press and questions, relat
ing to the geogranhy of Vermont !lo be prepar
ed by Rov.l'liiiv II. White. It is believed that
this feature, while it is not to increase the cost
of the books, will maturiillv increase its value
and the interest with which it will be studied.
McN ally's Physical iieography, accompanied by
Montcith's Lessous inAstronomv, was adopted,
to bo UBtd in thoBe departments of the study
which are indicted by their titles. Guyot's
Common School Geography was adopted as a
Physical Gcographv of a "grade different from
Inasmuch as there seems to bo some misap
prehoneion as to the intention and design of thu
Hoard in recommending the different text-book"
in geography, it seems proper to state that i
was their intention to recommend the uso of
Mitchell's Geographiewby all classes which have
hitherto used, or which would otherwise use
Cornell's, and that they did not design that
Guyot's Geographies should be used, except by
pupils who, having passed through Mitchell's,
desiro to advance to the study of physical geo
graphy by Guyot's method.
The publishers of Mitchell's New Geographies
rill solid agents into every town in the State, to
supply schools according to tho terms annexed,
and it is hoped that superintendents will furnish
-vcry facility for tho speedy prosecution of their
