In the 1st school district, embracing the city and county of Philadel. phia, the number of schools is 215; of which, 1 is the High School, 40 Grammar Schools, 18 Secondary, 76 Primary, and 50 not classified. The whole number of teachers, including the professors of the High School, is 499; 87 males, and 412 females. The aggregate amount of salaries is $136,843; average to each, $274.23. The number of pupils is 33,384, exhibiting an increase of 5,222 since the last report. A number of schools for colored children are embraced in the above summary, which is taken from an abstract from the semi-annual returns. The expenses of the Board of Control for all purposes, except the erection and fitting up of school houses, have been $288,766.66 for a year and a half; or an average of $192,511.18 per annum. This includes cost of tuition, fuel, books, stationary, and supplies of every description; also, the expenses of the Secretary of the Board and the Comptroller, repairing school houses, and all the other items which are included by the Auditors under the head of general expenses. Divide this sum by 33,384, (the total number of scholars,) and it will be seen that the annual average expense of each pupil for all the purposes above stated, has been $5,76. The total amount of expenditure in 1842 was $255,852.92. The expenditure from January 1st to June 30th, 1843, was $118,028.76.

STATISTICS OF THE CHARITABLE INSTITUTIONS IN THE STATE.

Philadelphia House of Refuge, incorporated March 23, 1827, for the refor. mation of Juvenile Delinquents. The ground and buildings have cost $83,381.81, and are incumbered with a debt of $27,000. No boy can be retained after the age of 21, and no girl after the age of 18. The pupils receive a good education, and some suitable trade. At any time during their stay in the institution, the managers may, if they think them worthy, bind them out, with their consent, as apprentices. In 1843, 74 boys and 34 girls were admitted, and 56 boys and 34 girls were discharged; and there remained in the institution, on the 31st of December, 1843, 110 boys and 58 girls. 87 were committed by magistrates, 15 by courts, and 6 returned after having left the House. 37 boys and 23 girls were sent at the request of parents or near relatives. The average age of the boys was 1334 years, of the girls 1412; average number of inmates, 152.

The Pennsylvania Institution for the Deaf and Dumb was incorporated and endowed Feb. 8, 1821. The neighboring States of New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland, have passed laws appropriating certain sums of money annually towards the support of their own deaf and dumb citi. zens in this institution. The purpose of the institution is the instruction of this unfortunate class of the community. During the year 1843, 24 pupils were admitted into, and 14 lest, the institution; and there remained . on the 31st of December, 1812, 66 males, and 55 females; total 121. Of this number, 83 are supported by Pennsylvania, 7 by New Jersey, 12 by Maryland, 3 by Delaware, and 16 by their friends, or the institution.

The State is divided into six judicial districts, each comprising two, three, or four counties. For each district there are a chief judge and two associates, who constitute the County Courts for the respective counties in the district. These are the common law courts of original jurisdiction in the State; and they have jurisdiction of all claims for fifty dollars and upwards, appellate jurisdiction from the judgment of justices of the peace, and equity jurisdiction within the counties coextensive with the chan. cellor. The six chief judges constitute the Court of Appeals for the State, which has appellate jurisdiction of cases at law and in equity, originating in the County Courts, the Orphans' Courts, (of which there is one in each county,) and the Court of Chancery.
