As the edition of the “Instructions” published in 1849 is exhausted, the Regents, some time since, directed the preparation of another. Thereader will find in it all the Laws, relating to Colleges and Academies, that have been passed subsequent to the above year. Occasion has also been taken to revise and consolidate the Ordinances of the Board, and several important changes and additions have been introduced relative to the Annual Report of Academies. The standard of age has been raised, and the requisites of classical students and those in the higher branches of English education have been somewhat increased. I
This Ordinance, with its additions and amendments, will be found at page 59, and extends to page 65. The Annual reports of Academies, to be made in 1855, must be in conformity to it. But it will be observed that the ordinance does not come in force until May 1, 1854, and reports referring to a period previous to this, may be in conformity to the “Instructions” of 1849.
Two copies of this edition of the Instructions will be sent to every College and Academy subject to the visitation of the Regents; one for the use of its President or principal and other teachers, and to be preserved in its library ; and the other for the use of its trustees, in making out their Annual report, and to be kept by their Secretary or Treasurer, having charge of their books and papers. - . . . . . . . .
