Excerpt from History of the Common School System of the State of New York: From Its Origin in 1795, to the Present Time; Including the Various City and Other Special Organizations, and the Religious Controversies of 1821, 1832, and 1840 It has been my aim to trace this system from its earliest inception, through all its struggles and vicissitudes, its varying phases and steady advancement, to its present vast proportions and extended scope. In doing so, I have deemed it not only important, but interesting and attractive, to give free extracts from the Official language of those from time to time con nected with its administration, and from the arguments and illustrations of its prominent advocates and distinguished champions in legislative halls, in public conventions, and in the discharge Of subordinate functions associated with its interests and welfare. The utterances of statesmen, philanthropists, legislators, and practical administrators, in reference to the great funda mental principles Of popular education, the foundations upon which they rest.
