1.-RESOLUTIONS.

Hon.J.H.Smart, of Indiana, chairman of a special committee to draught resolutions in regard to the exhibition of educational development at the approaching Centennial at Philadelphia, reported the following, which were received, discussed, and adopted seriatim :

Whereas a communication has been received from the Hon. Jobn Eaton, United States Commissioner of Education, in which the National Educational Association, now assembled, is requested to take into consideration the interests of the educational department of the coming Centepuial Exposition and to make suggestions in relation thereto: Therefore,

Resolved, That we heartily second the efforts of the Commissioner to secure an adequate representation of our educational products at the Centennial, and that we will co-operate with him in every practicable way to make the enterprise a success.

Resolved, That, in accordance with the Commissioner's request, we make the following suggestions, viz :

(1) In our opinion, wall-space of not less than 2,000 feet in length, with accompany. ing countor and floor space, will be needed for the proper display of our educational products.

(2) The amount of wall-space occupied by each State should be limited to 100 feet in length.

(3) All products of the schools, executed by pupils, except such as may be classed as “special products," should be made during the month of January, 1876.*

(4) We respectfully recommend that there be formed av Exposition Committee, consisting of one agent appointed from each of the States and Territories represented at the Centennial, by the chief educational officer in conference with the national Commissioner of Education, whose duty it should be to co-operate with the Commissioner in the superintendence of the educational department at Philadelphia.t

* The committee into whose charge this matter was given adopted, after consultation, the month of February, (1-15,) instead of January, as may be seen under Rule 2, Class I, in the preceding pages.

+ Hon. Mr. Smart, by whom these resolutions were presented, proposes that suggestion 4, under resolution second, be made, for greater clearness, to read thus :

“We respectfully recommend that the chief educational officer of each State and Territory which displays educational products at the Centennial be invited to appoint an agent, whose duty it shall bo to represent his State or Territory at Philadelphia, to see that the educational products thereof aro properly arranged and cared for, and to act in conjunction with other agents in forming a committee of inspection to co-operate with the United States Commissioner of Education in the superintendence of the educational department."

1

Resolved, That a committee of three be appointed to prepare and submit to General Eaton rules and regulations by which pupils and students shall be governed in the preparation of such products as may be executed by them.

Resolved, That we recommend that an international educational congress be held at some time during the Centennial Exposition, and that we also recommend that arrangements therefor be made by the United States Commissioner of Education.

Resolved, That we respectfully recommend to the Commissioner of Education that the appointment of delegates to the international congress be made through the chief educational officers of the several States and Territories.

The superintendents' section then adjourned sine die.
