NOTICE.

The Annual Report of the Superintendent of Public Instruction is forwarded to the several County Clerks, to be distributed as follows:

To each County Clerk, one copy;
To each County Treasurer, one copy;
To each Township Clerk, one copy;
To the Director in each District, one copy.

It is believed that the Report of 1864 contains a large amount of matter that cannot fail to interest every friend of Education; and especially the patrons of our Primary Schools. The subjects treated of, are of vital importance; and the statistics of the Primary Schools and other Educational Institutions, are well calculated to awaken an interest in the public mind, without which all our educational machinery will fail to produce the desired results.

Perhaps few persons will be interested in everything in the present volume; yet it is hoped that no one can be found so oblivious of the vast interests involved in the subject of Universal Education, as not to find much that will claim his attention, awaken new sympathies, and lead to enlarged efforts in the great work. School officers may do a public service by placing the Report for perusal in the hands of Teachers; whose attention to its contents is respectfully solicited. Where there is a district library, all the Annual Reports of the Superintendent, sent to the district, should be considered as belonging thereto.
