The committee after the most mature
reflection and calculation, have consid
ered that, the resources of the town, aid
ed as they are by the law of the state,
are adequate to meet all the necessary
expenses of instruction to all the chiidren
of the town between the ages of seven
and twenty one, who woultf avail them
sclves of a system of Free school instruc
tion: as the whole number would not
much exceed 600; provided the ratio is
not greater here than it was in l’ru'fl-‘
dence in 1824: When with a population
of about 14,000 their public schools
which were open freely to all did not‘
contain at any season of the year over
900 pupils. {‘hc opinion of the commit-‘
tee 18 much strengthened by the lan
guage of the last report of the sshool
committee,who represent that, all the ex
ertions “by public advertisements, and
personal representations,” have fuiled to
collect a greater number than could be
accommodated in the Mill street school
house. One additional school house cal
culated to accommodate 300 pupils, tth
cost of which, i’ built of wood, is estimat-|
ed by your committee at from $2OOO to.
$2500, would be amply sufficient, with'
the house’in Mill-street to accommodate
all the youth of'this town. l
Y our committee it will be perceived,
do not pretend to calculate the cost of a
school house with that precision which
might be expected from practical men;
but,they are satisfied that the largest sum
uamed is fully adequate to the expense
which would be incurred in the ercction
of such a house, Your committee are
of opinion that if another school honse isi
built, the doors of both houses should bci
thrown open to all who are disposed to
receive such instruction and both
schools established under the same reg-|
ulations, I
The school fund, agreeably to the re
port of the commissioners of the Mill
street school on the—day of June last,
amounted to §2675 47, a sum considera
bly more than suflicient to erect a suita
ble building with all the requisite fix
tures. The estimated annual fund, will
exceed rather than fall below $1,800.
The latter sum, with the interest of the
balance ofthe present school fund in the
opinion of the committee, would be
sufficient for deiraying all the necessary
cxpenses of both schools. If, however,
there should prove to beany deficien
cy, that deficiency could easy be met, by{
requiring all the pupils to defray the ex
iense of fuel, books, and stntionury.—l
eaving it discretionary with the school
committee or town council to release I'rom;
that assessment, such scholars as are to-|
tally unable to pay. This, your commit-|
tee believe, would give more general
satisfaction, than the present system of
exclusion of some, and paying all thci
expenses of others.
As to the utity of the present school,
the committee take this occasion to ex-I
press their gratification at its past suc
cess, and their confidence, that under the |
superintendence of its present able in
structor it cannot fail to prove a blessing
to the town. KEvery praise is due to
those gentlemen who have with so much
liberality and zeal, devoted themselves
to promote its interests: And the com
mittee trust that in some short period, its
doors may be thrown open to all the youth
of the town indiscriminately, and furnish
instruction to all without distinction, and
without expense,
The committee have been somewhat
surprised at the anuual expense of the
school in Mill street ; not because they
themselves are sufliciently conversant
with the business to point out any items
in which retrenchment might be practi
cable ; but because it is so far beyond
the estimate made by a committee of the
town about the time it was established ;
and, because, it considerably exceeds
similar expense in the school in the town
of Providence. By the statement sub
mitted to the town, it was estimated that
pupils would be taught at an annual ex
pense of $2 10 each. The school inProv
idence, educate children at somewhat
over $4 each, the expenece of the Mill
street school for the last year, calculat
ing the same itims of charge, shows that
the expence of instruction here, is at
least $5,30 each, taking the number
taiight to be the average as stated in the
last report of the school committee.
Whether, under all the circumstances,
however, any reduction in the expenses
of that school can be made without di
minishing its usefulness in equal degree,
the committee are without the knowledge
necessary to form a satisfactory opinion;
and therefore, will not hazard one. Nor
are they at present, prepared to offer any
opinion as to the expediency of immedi
ately erecting any additional school house
or houses. Being satisfied, that thcy‘
discharge the duty expected of them, in
submitting to the town such a smtcmcntl
of facts, in relation to the subject, as
would assist them in deciding these ques
tions themselves. All which is respect
fully submitted. |

NEW-YORK STEAM BOATS.
I, We find the following article in the
ll‘Chnrleston City Gazette, i
I' I perceive by the New-York papers,
' that the Line of Steam packets between
I!tlnut City and Rhode-Island, has been
' resumed for the season. The elegance
}uf the boats of which this line is compos-
I]cd, and the extent of their accommoda
!‘tions, has been often and deservedly re
marked. For speed, they are unvxm-l-}
led, if not unrivalled, by any boats in the
|country, whilst the advantages offered
‘iby them, for a regular and expeditious
I‘cmnmunicutiun between New-York and
!Tthc Fastern States, are pumerous and
~well known. 1 performed three or fourj
I:pussages last season in the Chancellor
‘iLivingshm, Capt. CHARLES COGGESHALL,
'one of the boats composing this line, and
'a short description of her, will give thc!
lrcudcr an idea of them generally, al-'
'though she may be said to be superior to.
‘the rest. This boat was originally on
!thc Hudson River, at which time she
lwas the subject of a humorous tulc,l
which wentthe rounds of the newspapers,
:cntitlcd “The Perpetual Pussengcr,”i
‘and was sclected by the Committee of
'Armngements, from the many proposedi
for that service, to convey the Nation’s
Guest from Staten Island to the city, in
lIBQS. In 1828, she was purchased by’
‘the present proprietors, to be placed in
iopposition to the Fulton Company’s boats,
'which were than monopolizing the whole
itrade to Rhode-Island, and in despite of {
the many exertions of her opponents,
maintained her standing ; and has per
formed the shortest passage even yet
made between New-York and Provi
dence. She is 500 tons burthen ; has
two spacious cabins below deck, which
contain upwards of 100 births ; and are
furnished in the most expensive style.
Her ladies’ cabin on the main deck, con
tains about 30 births ; and to use the
language of an Editor who has been in
the East, “appears more like the Saloonl
of the Ottoman, than the cabin of a steam
boat.” 'The promenade deck is vcr‘yl
|extensive, and has a Saloon for ladies.l
i I once saw 12 setts of cotillions at a timc‘
‘on a Summer afiernoon, amusing them-
I sclveswith dancing on the deck, as the?
|boat was wending her way majestically
‘ over the waters of Long Island Sound.
{One of the passages I made in her
|was uncommonly short. We left the
|wharf in New-York, at a 1-4 past 7 in
the evening, passing through Hurl Gate
in the dark, a feat attempted only by the
best of pilots, and at a quarter before 9
the next morning, was at the wharf in
Newport ; a distance of 180 miles. At
another time, I left New-York for Bos
ton, in this boat, she having on board
200 persons, part of whom were on an
|excursion she intended making, after
reaching Providence, to New Bedford
‘und the Elizabeth Islands, and was s 0
delighted, that I gave up my original in
‘tention, and accompanied them on the
lwholu route ; and never was a weck
Ispcnt in more agreeable company, or in
'a manner which afforded greater satis
faction. At one time during this voyage,
we had on board upwards of' a thousand
'persons, but such were the judicious ar-
Imngcmcnts that none were dissutisfied,’
Iwhich is more astonishing as the tables
:wcrc replenished 8 or 9 times to give
‘them a collation. The Chancellor Liv
lingston is a universal favorite, and has
Inot been excelled by any of her compet
;ituru, which although they may equul her
lin speed, are greatly her inferior in still
‘ness of machinery and elegance of ac
‘commodations, Yet, the bouts of which
the linc is composed, are all of the first|
order, and commanded by able and q-x-‘
perienced gentleman, 1 should be plons—l
ed to hear of their success, and am glad
that they have given up the idea of a
ruinous opposition, and uniting, will run
‘a daily hine, at a price which will give
‘satisfuction to travellers, and a fair profit
to themselves, A CAROLINIAN,
