The State Normal School still continues as prosperous as at any previous time. The teachers have been so long connected with the School, and understand so fully what was needed to to be done, that the School did not feel the loss of its former Principal, as it otherwise would have done. Under its new Principal, we may hope to see its power for good, still more increased, and its general prosperity greatly enlarged.
