the cause of education throughout the State. Other interests have their organsfarmers, miners, merchants, doctors, etc. have their respective publications established to advocate their views and to communicate that information necessary to each in his calling. But the great cause of Public Education in California has no organ in which Public School Teachers may advocate their own cause, discuss all questions, and express their opinions upon all measures affecting the condition, or wel. fare, of the Public Schools of the State. In their opinion, our Educational Journal is to contain general intelligence, informing the Teacher of anything interesting, or important for him to know in his profession, which might occur in any part of the world; articles upon the best method of teaching ; notices of books the most useful to Teachers ; questions for examination in the different branches taught in Common Schools, and essays, original, or selected, upon any subject interesting to Teachers.

Furthermore, it is the opinion of your committee, in order that an enterprise of this kind should succeed, it must receive the hearty support of every Teacher in this State; every Teacher should show his interest in the work by subscribing for it, and as many as possible should write for it.

Therefor, since it is necessary, as a preliminary step, to ascertain whether such a journal as is contemplated will receive a sufficient number of subscriptions to place it upon a firm footing, we submit the following resolution for your adoption:

Resolved, That a committee of nine-five to reside in San Francisco, and four in different parts of the State-be appointed to enlist the co-operation of County Superintendents and friends of education throughout the State in its support; to determine the size and character of the journal, and draw up a set of regulations for its future publication ; to nominate a Board of Editors, and such other committees as they may deem necessary; to issue a prospectus for gratuitous circulation; to open a list of subscriptions; to attend to any other business connected with the establishment of such a journal, and to submit their report to the Convention at its next regular session for its adoption.

Yours, respectfully,

SPARROW A. SMITH,
GEORGE W. MINNS,
FREEMAN GATES, Jr.
JOHN SWETT,
