From this table, it will be seen'that a large number have been
connected with the school, who have failed to finish the prescribed course of study. I n refere. c to 1hese, it seems proper,
to add, that by far the greater proportion have used the advantages afforded by this institntion, in the service of the State,
The demand for teachers has been such during the past year, that
quite a large number of the undergraduates at present connected
with the school, have, with the consent of the faculty, temporarily left the institntion and engaged in teaching, and although
they have not completed the entire course of study, it is confidently expected that they will do much to improve the character of the instruction commonly given in the public schools.
Present Number c~f Pupils.
The 25th term, or the first of the thirteenth year of the State
Normal School, commenced on the third Monday of September
last. The number of pupils in attendance is 256. They are
divided into four classes : Sub-Junior, Junior, Sub-senior and
Senior-a classification extending the course of study through
two entire years. These classes are further arranged in divisions for convenienc6in recitation. The classification of the
pupils will be seen from the followiug table :

Course of Study.
The course of study remains essentially the same as at the date '
t f the last report. While no new branches have been introduced, an effort has been made to raise the standard of scholarship, by requiring higher attainments as conditional to admission
inbo the school, and by demanding a more complete mastery of
the branches pursued as requisite to advancement in the classes
and to graduation. In doing this, it has been found necessary to
reject quite a number of applicants for admission, on the ground
of insufficient qualification, and td decline extending the honors
of graduation to an unusual nnmber of candidates, for the same
reason. The immediate effect of this course has been to increase
the number of pupils in the lower olasses, rendering them disproportionately large, as compared with the higher classes.
This inconvenience will, however, correct itself 'within a very
short time; and the committee flatter themselves that the general
scholarship of the school is higher than at the date of any previous report.
SEXand Node of Appointment.
The number of young men in the school is larger than at the
date of the last report;, but is still much smaller than that of the
young ladies. The great demand for female labor in the work
of education, and the low salaries paid in the rural districts,
afford, perhaps, a sufficient explanation of this disparity. 81ready a large proportion of the public schools of the State are
taught by female teachers, and there seems to be no reason for
expecting a change in this respect. Such are the rewards of
labor in all the departments of business, open to young men,
that a well qualified male teacher is quite beyond the reach of
the great majority of rural districts throughout the State., There
T
is, however, an increasing demand for young men, of the best
qnalifications, to take charge of the more important- public
schools in our cities and villages; and it is believed that this
demand will be still further increased, under the superrision of
the r e c e ~ t l yappointed school commissioners. The committee
are confident, also, that qnder the new system of appointment,
&larger proportion of young men, and those of a higher grade
of talent, will be secured to the school, and that the influence
which thus stimulates the demand, will go far towards meeting it.
Facdty.
*
The committee have to report several changes. in the f a ~ u l t y ~
during the past gear. At the close of the 23d term, Fcb. lst,
1856,Prof. Samuel B. Woolwosth, LL. D., resigned the princjpalship of the school, which he had held for three and one-half
yews, in order to accept the sitnation of searetarp of t h a Regeats
o-E' the University, in place of Dr. T. Rnmeyn Beck, deceased:
'@hecommittee made o h o h of- Prof. David M. Coehra~,A.
who had previously been eonliected with the school. i n t b s
department of Natural Scienee, as his successor. Pmf. Gocl~r~zraa
entered upon the duties of his new position, at the cornmenwmerit of the 24th term. - Temporary provision mas made for the
instruction of the classes in the department,'left vwant by- his
transfer, until April first, when the professorship was filled by
the appointment of Mr. Edward 3'. B. Orton, A. M.
A change has also been made in the experimental department,
The superintendent, Mr A ~ OM.
S Kellogg, having been invited
to take charge of the Farnum Preparatory School, a branch of
.khe State Normal School of New Jersey, and one of the important educational movements now in progress in that State, resigned. The experimental school had, under his direeiion, hea
in the highest degree successful, and the committee accepted,his,
resigaation with regret. His conne~tionwith the school, close$
with the commencement of the twenty-fifth term, and his placs
was immediately lilled by the appointment of Mr. William D;
JJuntley, who had, for several years, been engaged in the, p ~ a b l i ~
scl~oolsof Buffal9. Mr. Huntley brings, to thisimportant post.. a,
high reputation, as. a n experienced and successful teacher,
I n order to secure to the mathematical department, the highest
grade of talent and ski& and to give to its system of instruction,
a higher imity and completeness, the committee have, as was
stated in the last report, materially modified its organization.
Previous to that time, the professor of mathematics had been
necessarily so occupied in his own class room, as to be ~ n a b l e ~ t o
extend his supervision to the teaching in the lower classes in t h a
department. Consequently the modes of instruetion had been
various, and destitute of that nnity so essential to the highest
resnlts in a science, which, althoaghcomprehending ai variety of
subjects, is-the same throughout, involving the same processes-d-df
thotpght, andzresfing-upon the szme intuitive and elementar$
principles. This defect was removed by the changes madebefore mentioned; and the entire end fully secured, by tlze;tapr
pointmeat to the vacant professorship, of Charles Davies, LL.D.,
long h o w n as a distinguished professor in the
&ademy a t West Point, who, subordinate to the principal, now t a k e
the entire charge of the mathematical department, marking out
the system and superintending the instruction throughout
the entire course. The results of this arrangement f~xllgreslim the high expectations of the committee, and the.. =&happy to say that Prof. Davies is now regarded as a permanentofficer of the school.

Experimental School.
This school, in which the teaching is entirely performed by .the
members of the graduating class, and which is designed to furnish them the opportunity for applying under the direction of
the proper officer, the modes of instructionimparted in the Norma1 School, has acquired a high reputation as a school of elementary instruction. For the ten vacancies occurring at the
close of the term ending July 11, 1856, over one hundred agplications were received. The committee have thought proper
to increase the fee for tuition, from twenty to twenty-five dollars
per annum, for each scholar. The pupils of this school a t present are

CIRCULAR,
The Normal School of the State of New-York was established
by an act of the Legislature, in 1844, 'L
for the instruction and
practice of Teachers of Common Schools in the Science of Education and the art of Tea~hing.'~I t was 6rst established for five
years, as an experiment, and went into oper.ation on the 18th of
December, 1844, in a building provided gretuitously by the ci$
of Albany, and temporarily fitted up for that purpose. The first
term opened with twenty-nine pupils, and closed with ninetyseven. The number in attendance, the second term, was about
two hundred. The average number is now about two hundred
and fifty.
In 1848, an act was passed by the Legislature, "for the perrnanent establishment of the State Normal School," appropriating
$15,000 towards the erection of a suitable building. The following year an additional appropriation of $10,000 was made for
its completion. A large and commodious edifice, containing a
dwelling-house f ~ the
r Prinoipal, was accordingly erected on the
corner of Lodge and Howard streets, adjoining the State Geological and Agricultural rooms. To this building the school was
removed on the 31st of July, 1849.
The design of this institution is to improve the condition of
common schools, by providing a class of teachers superior to
professional scholarship and practical skill, to those ordinarily
furnished by institutions not having this end specifically in view,
and it is confidently believed from experience, that the condition
of admission, the course of study adopted and the class drill
pursued are well calculated to secure this object.

Selected compositions are publicly read every third Wednesday, commencing the fifth week, and ending with the twentieth,
thus making six times. At this exercise all the teachers, as well
as pupils, are expected to be present.
Field exercises, with surveying and engineering instruments,
are given to the gentlemen of the senior class, by the Professor
of Mathematics. These exercises consist of land surveying, with
trigonometrical, end other methods of areas, and heights and
distances-taking levels for railroads and canals, calculations
for excavations and embankments, and locating and describing
curves. The object of these exer~isesis to make the pupils
familiar with the use of instruments, and their application to
the purposes for which they are designed.
In the afternoons of those Wednesdays which are not otherwise
occupied, lectures are given by the several teachers, to the classes,
on such subjects as are peculiarly appropriate to their duties in
the school, and to those of the profession for which they are
preparing.
