With the assistance of sonic of the young Indy scholars, some of whom are preparing themselves for the profession of teacher, tho prima ry classes are bein'; rapidly and thor oughly trained in the elementary branches. This consolidation of the graded system, has been effected by the trustees with a view to economise, pe cuniarily. The gneded system is cer tainly the best, and where a teacher has the assistance of qualified and com petent young ladies to assist him, such as ho no# has, in training his classes, we arc of the opinion that he has still a graded school, discouragements to the contrary, and n graded school is what the citizens of Lewiston should eu Miss ANna Mellon. couragp.
