public institutions, with the increased demands by the progress of time on their own accomplishments, have also increased their demands upon the education of those who desire admittance, and the requirements on the one side have become privileges on the other, for those who fulfilled them. Thus the following privileges are attached to secondary-schools, equally for gymnasiums and real-schools:

1, Passing the third class: admittance into the first division of the royal horticultural institute at Potsdam.

2, Admittance to class II: a, entering the postal service; b, qualification as technical teacher.

3, Frequenting class II, for six months: a, entering apprentice of pharmacy; b, privilege of one year's military service; (without knowledge of Greek, a six months' attendance at class 1, is required for this latter privilege.)

4, Frequenting class II, for one year, qualifies for assistant postmaster, and some civil offices.

5, Admittance in class II, upper division, entitles to admittance as pupil of the veterinary school.

6, Admittance in class I: a, entering as clerk in bureaus of subsistence; b, qualifies for civil engineer; c, for clerkships in the offices of the civil administration of a province; d, for clerkships in the subaltern courts of justice.

7, Frequenting class I, entitles to admittance at royal academies of agriculture.

8, One year's attendance of class II, qualifies for, a, clerkships in the bureaus of subsistence, etc., of the army; b, of those of the navy; c, of those of the revenue service; d, entitles to admittance at the final examination of technical schools.

9, Testimonial of maturity: a, admittance at universities; b, qualification for the position of ensign in the army; c, gives admittance to the royal academy of architecture in Berlin; d, to the royal academy of mining at Berlin; e, to the forester's school at Neustadt Eberswalde (provided that a satisfactory examination in mathematics was passed ;) f, the postal service; g, to the royal polytechnic institute at Berlin.

Corresponding privileges have been granted to the real-schools of the second order and to higher burgher-schools.

Private Schools and Institutions.-According to the enactments of common law, private institutions and individuals, who intend to follow the vocation of instructing the young, are required to prove their capacity before the provincial school-board, and obtain a testimonial of qualification. This law was revoked in 1811 by the "regulation for Trades, etc.," but reenacted in 1834, together with the provision that the above testimonial of qualification should not only have regard to knowledge, but also to morality and loyalty in religion and politics. For foreigners the approval by the Department of Education and of the Bureau of Police was required. This regulation was published Dec. 31st, 1839, and di

rected also that private schools and institutions should be permitted in such places only, where there was sufficient provision for education in public schools. The consent for establishing a private school may be revoked, and is not transferable to another person; it expires when instructions have been suspended for six months. With regard to supervision, private schools are subject to the same regulations as public schools; generally a clergyman is president of the visiting board. By circular from the department, of June 17, 1862, the provincial authorities have been empowered to give to foreigners permission for the establishment of private schools without resort to the Department of Education.
