1. The forty-seventh and twenty-fifth sections of the Act require the Mayors of Cities and Towns and the Town Reeves of Incorporated Villages to call the first School Meetings in their respective Municipalities for the election of Trustees. The sections of the Act referred to are so explicit as to the manner in which such notices should be given, that it would be superfluous to insert any form for them in this place.

According to the twenty-sixth section and the ninth clause of the twenty-fourth section, the annual and special meetings for the election of Trustees, and for any other school purpose, are to be called by the Board of School Trustees of each City, Town, or Incorporated Village. The potices in every such case should be signed, in behalf of the Board of Trustees, by the Chairman or Secretary,--should be given to the taxable inhabitants of the city, town, ward, or village concerned, and should specify the object of the meeting called. With these remarks. the forms for calling annual and special school meetings in toynships by School Trustees, given in the first chapter of these Forins and Instructions, will afford a sufficient directory to Trustees in Cities, Towns and incorporated Villages for calling similar meetings. The same reference may be made in respect to the forms of School Rate-bills and agreements with Teachers, as far as it may be thought expedient to adopt them.

3. School Trustees of Cities, Towns and Incorporated Villages, will also adopt such forms as they may think proper, in laying, from time to time, before their respective Councils estimates of the sums required by them for Common School purposes ; likewise in preparing for publication the annual reports of their proceedings, as required by the eleventh clause of the twenty-fourth section. To facilitate the performance of the duty required by the latter part of the same clause, a blank annual report will be prepared and transmitted to the Board of Trustees in each City, Town and incorporated Village. This remark does not, of course, apply to incorporated Villages the current year (1850,) until the end of which their present School Section divisions and Trustees remain unchanged, and will report as heretofore by filling up the blank reports provided for them.. ;;!;
