Third. The care of the lands appropriated to the common school fund, is vested in the commissioners of the land office.

There is now in the Treasury, (February, 1829) $70,446 24 cents capital paid in, to be invested in some of the stocks of this state.

It is the duty of the Comptroller to invest in the stocks of this state, the capital of the Common School Fund which

may hereafter be paid into the Treasury. Fourth. The character and usefulness of schools depend upon the qualifications of Teachers.

More than 8600 teachers are now required to supply the district schools of the state. To meet the demand, reliance must be placed upon the higher seminaries of learning. For this purpose, also, academies are in some measure made nurseries of teachers for common schools.

The miserable economy, which not unfrequently prevails, of employing cheap teachers, without reference to their fitness, has a tendency to depress rather than ele. vate the standard of education in our common schools.

The superintendent recommends that provision be made, by law, for enumerating the number of children taught in all the schools in the city of New York, as well as the number of children: between five and fifteen, and.concludes his report by remarking, that returns have been received of the condition of the common schools from the commissioners of every town and city in the state.
