SECONDARY SCHOOLS COMPRISED IN THE UNIVERSITY. The secondary schools of New York, outside of the purely private schools, are divided into three classes-academies, high schools, and academic departments of union schools. They are designed to cover the four years of work preparatory to admission to the first year of college. Although touching at several points the work under the direction of the department of public instruction, notably in the acadernie departments of union schools, yet they are kept under the supervision and control of the regents. Much of the most effective work of the regents has been in securing greater uniformity and higher standards of work in the academies. The number of these institutions is so great that detailed account is here impossible, although several of the academies date from the last century and have a history at once interesting and instructive. A detailed account of these academies will be found in Dr. Hough's Historical and Statistical Record of the l'niversity of the State of New York, already referred to, chapter 97 Chapters 11 to 26, inclusive, of that work are likewise devoted to the academies.
In June, 17, there were a total of 3st of these secondary schools in the State. They were attended by over 53,000) scholars and had a total of 3,"1 teachers, of whom ,256 were women. The 165 high schools and academie departments, which are public institutions, had a net property of $7,617,23,30), and expended $1,50 2,900.16 for the year, while the 119 academies, which are incorporated, show a net property of $15.143,515.70), with expenses for the year of $1,3:1,
The following eitracts from the report of Secretary Melvil Dewey to the recents for will be found interesting:

Including the additions up to the time this report goes to press, there are in this State 611 high schools and academies, or about 1 to every 10,000 population. For comparison with another of the States of the Union, we note that Ohio, with 4,000,000 population, reports 558 public high schools and 56 private, a total of 614, or about 1 to every 8,000 population.
