Mr. Peimoyer from the coniinittee on text books, made the fol lowing report: The committee to whom was assigned the duty of presenting to the Association a suitable list of text-books, for the purpose of having said Association recommend sni-h list fur general adoption in the schools throughout the entire State, ben leave to report that, notwithstanding the very brief time allotted them, they have united upon a list for which they usk the respectful consideration of this body. Your com mit teo believe that there is no one subject relntinj to tho schools of this Stnte which needs it more careful consideration than that of a complete uniformity of text-books. Every temdicf has experienced the very great disadvantage under which both his pnpils and himself have labored, nnd by having n diversity of tt-xt hooks iti school, nd hy having some of the pnpils forced, fter a short advancement in one book, to adopt another, which, with its different phraseology ond peculiarities, is nlono cal culated to confuse nnd discourage. The committee sincerely regret that there is not present at this time a larger number of the Ulehcrs of the State, so that their opinions an be ascertained in relation to the value of the different books used in our schools, and so that, nftcr a careful canvass of the merits of the same, n uniform list could be designated and generally adopted. In viw, therefore, of the limited fittcndnr.ee opan the sitting of this body, they would not be prepared to advise a recommenda tion of the list proposed by them nnless 'he Association were generally agreed thereto, but would advise, in case snch gen eral assent could not be obtained, that the matter bo postponed until our next annual meHii;g.
