SELECTION FROM REPORT. * Improvements have been made, from time to time, in the several schools, and it is believed that the schools are in as flourishing a condition as they ever have been. The committee cannot point out any improvement that it would be advisable to make at the present time; if any defect shall hereafter be discovered, no doubt future committees will apply such remedy as shall promote the interest, and increase the usefulness of these public institutions, which are justly the pride of Boston.
