SIRHOWY. MONMOUTHSHIRE SCHOOL TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION.— The second annual meeting of this society was held on Saturday last, in the Boys' School, Sirhowy, when thirty teachers from the surrounding districts were present. Mr. Searjent, of Tredegar, was unanimously voted into the chair.^ The proceedings commenced with the reading of the minutes of the last meetiug, Mr. Wolfe, of Dowlais, then read an excellent paper on ''Schoolmasters Associations," in which he ably showed the great advan- tages derived from societies of the kind, from the prac- tice of reading essays on subjects connected with the profession, the giving of lessons, and public discussion, thereby disseminating correct and enlightened views on matters of practical education. Amongst other benefits mentioned by the Essayist, were the tendency such an association has to counteract one-sided views, and their usual concomitant conceit; individual friendship fos- tered, improvement in the teacher, and advancement of school-work generally. An animated discussion followed, which bore chiefly on the desirability of the association becoming united with the general body in London. A vote of thanks was then accorded to the Essayist. In the afternoon, the secretary, Mr. Green, read the annual report, which congratulated the members on the society's usefulness and prosperity. Four instructive papers and two pleasing lessons had been contributed during the past year. The present number of members is 34. The rules were revised, and the following officers elected for the ensuing year :-Cha.irman, Mr. Hirst; Vice-chair- man, Mr. Searjent; Secretaries, Messrs. Dugdale and Wolfe Committee, Messrs. Thomas, Green, and Lewis. It was then announced that Mr. Xing, of Abertillery, had kindly undertaken to read a paper at the next quarterly meeting. After a social cup of tea together, the members separated, highly gratified with the day's proceedings.
