The Fifth Term of this Institution commenced on the tenth day of January, 1865, and will continue five months. Tuition free.

GENERAL REGULATIONS.

I. All pupils, on entering the School, shall be required to sign the following declaration of intention :

“We, the subscribers, hereby declare that our purpose in entering the State Normal School is to fit ourselves for the profession of Teaching, and that it is our intention to engage in teaching in the Public Schools of this State.”

II. Male candidates for admission must be at least eighteen years of age; and female applicants at least fifteen years of age; and all must possess a good degree of physical health and vigor.

III. Examinations of candidates for admission shall be held during the opening week of each term, and in such form and manner as may be prescribed by the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees and the Principal, and the candidate so examined shall be admitted to such classes as their qualitications may entitle them to enter.

IV. The Principal of the School shall be authorized, under the direction of the Executive Committee, to examine and admit applicants at any time during the term, when it shall appear that such candidates could not present themselves at the opening of the term.

V. No pupil shall be entitled to a Diploma who has not been a member of the School at least one term of five months; but certificates of attendance, showing character and standing, shall be given to all who pursue an undergraduate or temporary course of study.

GENERAL REMARKS. The object of the California State Normal School is to provide for the Pablic Schools of the State a class of well-trained professional Teachers. The course of study as adopted for the School in its present stage of advancement, may seem very plain and unass

assuming, compared with the more pretentious lists of sciences and languages pursued in many private institutions ; but it should be borne in mind that the aim of the Normal School is to teach thoroughly what it assumes to teach, and that its purpose is to fit Teachers for the actual duties of our public school-rooms, rather than to graduate mere literary scholars.

As the maximum number the School can accommodate is not yet reached, pupils will be received from any county in the State, without reference to the county apportionment allowed by law.

Applicants who desire further information will apply by letter to the Superintendent of Public Instruction or to the Principal of the School.

Public School Teachers, who have already been engaged in teaching and who wish to avail themselves of the advantages offered by the Experimental School for imparting a thorough knowledge of the system of Object Training, can enter the Senior Class, if sufficiently advanced in their studies, and graduate at the end of a six months' course.

Greene's Introduction to the Study of English Grammar.
Greene's English Grammar (recently issued).
Greene's Analysis of the English Language.
Greene's First Lessons in English Grammar.
Greene's Elements of English Grammar.

This Series of Grammars has been prepared by Prof. S. S. GREENE, of Brown University, and is the result of a long and careful study of the language itself, as well as of the best methods of teaching it. The system by which the principles of the language are here exhibited is simple and easy of attainment, and differs in many essential particulars from that of any other author.

Prof. Greene's connection with Public Schools, Normal Schools, and Teachers' Institutes, has given him peculiar facilities for adapting a series of text books to the wants of the different grades of Schools, and his success is best manifested by the great popularity which these Grammars have attained.

COLBURN'S SERIES OF ARITHMETICS The Child's Arithmetic. Colburn's Intellectual Arithmetic. Colburn's Common School Arithmetic. Colburn's Arithmetic and its Application. Colburn's Arithmetic, Part First (the first two books bound in one).

These popular Arithmetics were prepared by Dana P. COLBURN, Master of the Rhode Island State Normal School. They are eminently practical, and have received the warm approval of all those teachers who have made themselves acquainted with their merits.

For sale by H. H. Bancroft & Co.; A. Roman & Co.; Tyler Brothers, in San Francisco, and by Booksellers generally. Copies of these works, for examination, may be obtained, at a reduced price, from any of the above firms; who will also furnish them on favorable terms to Teachers or School Officers desirous of introducing them into Schools under their charge.
