1867 edition. Excerpt: ...short and practical addresses were made
by Profs. Knickerbocker, Dougal, Doctor Chambers, Stewart, Loomis,
Wm. Kennedy, Esq.; and some very excellent remarks were made by
Rev. J. L. Barlow, of Broadalbin, at the closing exercises of the
session. "We have never before known so profitable an Institute in
this county as this. With the talent furnished us by the State,
viz.: Prof. E. Knickerbocker and Mrs. Arey; with our most excellent
home talent, Profs. Dougal, Stewart and Tillinghast, it could not
be otherwise than profitable and entertaining. Choice music was
furnished us, conducted by Prof. Tillinghast, which added much to
the interest of the occasion, and tended to " drive dull care
away." I cannot but tender my thanks, in behalf of my fellow
teachers, to the Superintendent of Public Instruction, for his
kindness in giving heed to our calls, by sending to our aid just
such talent as we needed. No funds are better or rather more
judiciously expended than that portion of the school fund which is
appropriated for expenses incurred at Teachers' Institutes; and I
only regret that all the children of school age who attend our
common schools cannot have the advantages derived from such
valuable exercises, through those practical teachers who have
within them the zeal of true teachers, and who appreciate the
efforts put forth through the liberality of a great State, by
always being present at our conventions, storing their minds with
useful knowledge, only to be imparted again to their pupils, giving
to them the value of the instruction received. Such teachers feel
happy that they have discharged their duty towards themselves,
their patrons and their pupils. Would that all were. so.
