every blessing he bestows, whether temporal or eternal. Knowl-
edge is not acquired without effort, both painful and protracted.
Wealth is neither accumulated nor retained without like exertion.
The christian life and attainments, precursors and pledges of the
life to come, are very significantly set forth as a pilgrimage, a
warfare, a race, a ceaseless struggle with obstacles and foes. Let
not such a prize be lost for want of resolution to encounter and
surmount the difficulties in the way of its attainment. Let not
such a crown be forfeited for want of manliness to win it.

You are the artificers of your own characters, responsible for
their right formation, and entitled to the praise or dispraise of a
successful or unsuccessful result. Be not unmindful of the re-
sponsibility, nor reckless of the consequences. Have a noble aim,



599

and see that you reach it. Spare no pains to accomplish all that
your earthly mission demands. Remember that

" Life is real, life is earnest,

And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,

Was not spoken of the soul."

Cultivate its noble powers with unremitting assiduity, for their
richest fruits will be gathered in a better world. Mental disci-
pline and moral culture are products of the stern reality of pro-
tracted toil and effort. Nothing short of these will realize the
desired result. There is but little virtue in the literary homeopathy
of Lectures. They do not possess vital energy enough to break
up the chills of ignorance, much less to give tone and elasticity
to the intellectual system. They may amuse, but they cannot
discipline. They may entertain, but they will not develope the
mental powers or tax the intellectual energies. Without a good
degree of previous literary culture on the part of the auditor, they
will prove little else than a desert without a dinner. Aim to be
something more substantial, than mere empty casks, to be filled to
the brim by every vagrant lecturer on biology, phrenology, or any
other of the countless ologies invented to grace impudence, con-
ceal charlatanry and endorse infidelity. The structure of real
literary greatness and permanent mental attainments must rest on
a more reliable basis, a deeper and more substantial foundation.

Curiosity unrestrained by wisdom and prudence, has ever been
a perilous guide, and its ignis fatuus has led many to destruction.
The poetical adage, " Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be
wise," finds its most appropriate and emphatic application to the
promptings and suggestions of this innate and potent principle of
our nature. Remember that it is an unsafe Mentor, and beware
of indiscriminately following its guidance. Why should you
explore the mysteries of those dens of iniquity, where vice seeks
to conceal its hideous forms? Why familiarize yourselves with
those scenes, which only disclose the depths of degradation, to
which they will inevitably sink, who disregard the counsels of
God and despise the warnings of experience? Why should you
add your name to the long roll of infamy and ruin, that stands
recorded on the annals of the past, merely for the gratification of
a prurient curiosity, or even to become a Solomon in sin? Why
master every device of Satan, why ambitious to taste every cup
of iniquity, why survey every quarter section of the forbidden ter-
ritory, why explore the suburbs of perdition under such a guide,
or even venture an excursion trip on the "broad gauge" of ruin under
such a conductor? Knowledge may be bought, and it has often been
purchased, at the expense of the perdition of the foolhardy purchaser.
A good character is the product of life long labor. Its fair fame
should be guarded with jealous care, since it may be utterly lost,



600

or seriously impaired, by a single mis-step, a thoughtless act, or an
inconsiderate remark. It is capital too precious to be rashly
periled, recklessly endangered, or thoughtlessly jeoparded by the
indulgence of any habit or custom of doubtful issue.

Let these counsels be followed, these suggestions be regarded
through life, and you will have no occasion to regret, at its close,
the adoption of that earthly course, which, though it may require
sacrifice, involve labor and demand unceasing effort, will ulti-
mately entitle you to " an inheritance incorruptible, undefiled, and
that fadeth not away," reserved in heaven for all "those, who, by
patient continuance in well doing, seek for glory and honor and
immortality." In all your gettings, get wisdom, remembering
that "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge," and
that "godliness with contentment is great gain, profitable for all
things, having the promise of the life that now is and that which
is to come."



Note. — On page 160, in lino ninth, the word worth should be work.

APPENDIX W. IX.



Catalogue of the books embraced in the last purchase of the Toivn-
ship Libraries, and distributed to nine hundred and forty town-
ships.

A brief sketch of the library feature of our educational system,
whose mission has opened so auspiciously, and whose results have
been so satisfactory, during the short period of its operation, as the
facts, on pages 39 and 40 of this report, would indicate, may very
appropriately precede said catalogue. Its peculiar and crowning
excellence is, that it is a township in distinction from a district
library. Libraries on this basis assume, at once, a character for
permanence, importance and usefulness, that the lapse of years
and the expenditure of tenfold the funds will hardly impart to the
district collection. It also possesses another element, distinguish-
ing it from the product of a mere township association, charged
with the responsibility of selection and purchase, which may be
denominated its State feature, and securing to each township its due
proportion of books, under circumstances that promise a more judi-
cious selection and a more economical purchase. These features
are sufficient to recommend it to the favorable regard of the public,
and justify the expectation that the principles, controlling the se-
lection, will be sound and judicious, as well as the purchase will be
wise and economical.

It will be seen, on a careful scrutiny of the following schedule of
books, that the principle of placing in each hundred volumes of the
list, in catalogical order, a due proportion of works suited to the
various classes of readers, from the youth of ten or twelve years to
the man of mature life, with its diversified tastes and pursuits, has
controlled the action of the board. Thus every one, within the
aforesaid limits, will find in each hundred of the first thousand
volumes, something adapted to cultivate his taste, develop his men-
tal and moral powers, and enlarge his store of useful knowledge.
Strict adherence to the above rule of selection, beyond the first
thousand volumes, was not practicable, for the reason that appro-
priate works in some departments were either exhausted, or the
Boards' acquaintance in that line did not embrace them. Such
omissions can be supplied by the experience and investigation of
those charged with the subsequent purchases. The ephemeral
issues of the press must be sought elsewhere, since they are entitled
to no position nor countenance in the township library.

The funds have been raised hitherto by a tax of a quarter of a
mill on the property, and twenty-five cents on the poll, and the pro-



602

ceeds distributed in books to the townships on the basis of the
number of children reported between five and twenty-one years of
age. Thus each township received its distributive portion of books,
commencing with the catalogue and proceeding as far on the list
as its share of the funds would extend. At the next purchase each
will commence at the point on the catalogue v^tiere its former quota
ceased, and thus all the townships of the commonwealth will pos-
sess a library of the like selection and worth, to the extent of their
equality of numbers. It will be readily perceived that the plan
admits of the introduction of new works, at any point desired,
without any derangement or embarrassment. A valuable book ap-
pears, which it is desirable to place in one-half, or two-thirds of the
townships the first year. It can be introduced into the catalogue
at a point where the order of purchase will place it in the desired
corporations the first season after its adoption, the number of co-
pies for the townships, whose purchase has passed that point, being
added to the number required by the regular progression of pur-
chase for the year. A five year's uninterrupted appropriation of
even the avails of a one-tenth of a mill levy and a poll assessment
of a dime will place in all our townships a collection of books,
whose impress and influence will long be felt for good, and illus-
trate the wisdom of this feature of the system.

The following six townships, viz: Centre township, Marion
county; Wayne township, Wayne county; Pigeon township, Van-
derburgh county; Fairfield township, Tippecanoe county; Madison
township, Jefferson county; New Albany township, Floyd county;
have each received only $805 worth of books, the balance of their
pro rata portion is pledged to be furnished in April, when the con-
tract will be filled and the bills settled. The retail price in cloth
binding is given in the following catalogue, because an isolated
volume or work, in library binding, cannot be replaced, under ordi-
nary circumstances, at less than the aforesaid figures.

In reference to the terms, on which the last purchase was made,
it is sufficient to remark that the discount from said prices, includ-
ing all the items of expense incident to a purchase at the eastern
market, as exchange, insurance and transportation, will range from
thirty-three to fifty per cent, and even greater.

Only three annual assessments, at the rate above named, have
been levied for this purpose and two purchases made. The library
levy ceased in 1856, and therefore the responsibility of the aban-
donment or restoration of this feature of our educational system,
devolves on the present Legislature. As the first purchase was not
made till the second assessment was collected, consequently the
library has had less than two years, in which to demonstrate its
capacity for good. The past year is the first in which it was possi-
ble to report the results of a twelve months operation of this part
of the system, and this fact will also account for the meagerness
of the detail of the number of volumes taken out of said libraries,
since the statute did not enumerate this among the statistical items



603

to be furnished by the township boards. The information on this
point, embodied in this report, was obtained through the special
kindness of auditors and trustees.

By reference to the appropriate columns in the abstract of town-
ship reports, it will be seen how many volumes each corporation
received of the second purchase, except the six townships above
specified. It will be borne in mind that the apportionment of the
aforesaid books was made on the basis of the number of children
reported in October, 1855. The aggregate number of volumes al-
ready distributed of the recent purchase is one hundred and forty-
four thousand eight hundred and eighty, which will be increased
some two or three thousand on the completion of the order.

As the full amount of the bills for the transportation of the
books from Cincinnati to the counties will not be ascertained and
audited, till the settlement of the countjwfcreasurers with the Treas-
ury Department next April, therefore a complete detailed exhibit
of the expenses connected with the second purchase, cannot be
furnished in this report. The following expose contains all that
can now be given. The contract calls for $110,000 worth of
books.

On this contract the Treasurer has paid $ 90,000 00

For 950 copies of the Pennsylvania School Archi-
tecture, and transportation charges on the same . . . 1,461 70
Superintendents traveling expenses in connection
with the purchase and and distribution of the
books 266 22



Amount of expenditure reported $91,727 92

The following exhibit of the assessments, collections and expend-
itures for library purposes, during the three years provision has
been made for tins feature of our system, may be of some interest
to the curious, both among its friends and foes :

Assessed. Collected. Expended. On hand.

1852 $73,701 $66,605 nothing $66,605

1853 112,626 104,713 151,786 19,532

1854, no assessment. 5,017 9,053 15,496

1855 121,854 90,262 91,494 14,262

To meet the entire indebtedness connected with the last pur-
chase, consisting of the balance due when the contract is filled, and
the expense of the distribution of the books to the counties, there
will be the collections on the delinquency of $32,598 on the last
assessment, the present balance on hand of $14,262, and an aggre-
gate sum of 84,601, composed of an item of 81,960, erroneously
paid and not yet replaced, and another of 82,641, improperly
charged to the library fund, which should be paid from the fund for
public printing.
