The passage of this bill would, in the opinion of your committee, be to strike a' death blow at the very vitals of the whole theory of common schools.

Nor would it -atop long here, for the same principle must apply to the Siihdlslricttt as : well. If it is wrong to tax the property of a county for the education of anv one outside of the county, it js no! lpss wrong to tax the property of the township,: the city, the town, or the sub-district, for a like pur pose. --And by logical necessity we are brougbt to the last link in the chain, of argument which is, Rat the : individual can Only be taxed for the; education 'of his own children. : M hen that point is reached all taxation mustcease, of course, and we are brought .back to - what sonlc esteem the "good old plan", of letting the richicdncate their children in Re pri vate school, the academy and the college, and the poor go unedueated. ; VV hile-we do not believe, that such is the design of .the friends of this' bill, yet we would be -unfaithful to our clearest i convictions 7 if we did' not declare that, in our deliberate opinion; such would be the final result of the change; proposed, in .the .central,' and as we conceive the vital principle of the common school system.' ;,--; . ; Your committed, therefore, recommend the iridefiriite. postponement of.
