NUMBER OF TERMS, AND WEEKS OF VACATION.

From an early period, there has been a class of information reported which could not well be summarised for any given year, inuch less for a series of years. We deem it sufficient to present these conditions as they existed at intervals of ten years, so far as they can be shown from reports.

TEXT-BOOKS USED IN ACADEMIES.1

In 1835, there was begun a series of reports upon the Text-books used in Academies, and these have since been continued through a period of nearly fifty years. Before 1858, the total number of

The Regents, by a resolution adopted February 27, 1827, decided that they did not consider it proper as a corporate body, to express any opinion on the merits of books prepared for the use of Common Schools. This rule has since been invariably followed with respect to text-books used in Academies and Colleges; but as to books for reference and library use, the Regents have published extended lists of such as deserved confidence,

Academies using the several books were reported without specifying the institutions where used. From 1858 to 1869, inclusive, the studies and the text-books used in the several Academies were given in detail. From 1870 to 1880, inclusive, the total number using each text-book, without further specification were given, and from 1881 to 1884 those only that had been used in at least ten Academies, within four years were reported. Having made extensive tabulations for many years, commencing with 1835, we found that these tables would occupy much more space than their interest might justify, and therefore we present only the series for ten years ending in 1882-3, as published in the report of 1884.

Summary of text books reported as used in the several Academics during the last ten years (omitting those not used in at least ten Academies within four years past).

ENGLISH DICTIONARIES-The following is a list of the principal authors mentioned as in use in Academies since 1835, viz.: Bolles, Cobbs, Davie, Fowler, Gallaudet, Johnson, Oswald, Reid, Richardson, Smart, Walker, Webster, Worcester.

The two last mentioned have far exceeded all the others in number of Academies where used. Their relative strength since 1838 has been as follows:
