PART VIII.-FORMS AND REGULATIONS FOR SUPERANNUATED COMMON SCHOOL TEACHERS.

Special Notice to Common School Teachers.

(1) Public notice is hereby given to all Teachers of Common Schools in Upper Canada, or Teachers of the English Branches in Grammar Schools who are legally qualified Common School Teachers, who may wish to avail themselves at any future time of the advantages of the Superannuated Common School Teachers' Fund, that it will be necessary for them to transmit to the Chief Superintendent if they have not already done so, their annual subscriptions at the rate of five dollars per annum, commencing with 1854, if then teaching, and at the rate of four dollars per annum for the current year. The law authorizing the establishment of this fund provides—“ That no teacher shall be entitled to share in the said fund unless he has contributed to such fund the sum of four dollars or more per annum." No pension will be granted to any Teacher who has not contributed to this fund, while actually engaged in the exercise of his profession, in accordance with the preceding regulations on the subject.

The following are the Regulations adopted by the Council of Public Instruction for Upper Canada, pursuant to the provisions of the law, on the 28th day of April, 1854:

(2) Every teacher engaged in teaching since 1854, in order to be entitled, when he shall have become superannuated, to share in this fund, must contribute towards it at the rate of five dollars per annum, commencing with 1854, and at the rate of four dollars per annum for the current year; and no teacher now engaged in teaching shall be entitled to share in this fund who shall not thus contribute to it annually. But the amount of the annual subscriptions for the years during which such teacher may have taught before the first day of January, 1854, and for which he may hereafter claim as a superannuated teacher, may be deducted from the first year's pension to which such teacher may be entitled.

(3) Should any teacher, having a wife and children, subscribe to this fund, and die without deriving any benefit from it, the amount of his subscriptions, and whatever may accumulate thereon, shall be paid to his widow or children, as soon as satisfactor proofs of his decease, and the relationship of the claimant or claimants to him, shall have been adduced.

(4) No teacher shall be eligible to receive a pension from this fund who shall not have been disabled from further service while teaching a Common School, or who shall not have been worn out in the work of a Common School Teacher.

(5) All applications, according to the prescribed form, accompanied by the requisite certificates and proofs, must be made before the first of April, in order to entitle the applicants to share in the fund for such year.

(6) In case the fund shall at any time not be sufficient to pay the several claimants the highest sum permitted by law, the fund shall be equitably divided among the several claimants, according to their respective periods of service.

(7) The amounts of all subscriptions to this fund, and of any unexpended balances of Legislative Grants made to it, may be invested, from time to time, under the direction of this Council; and the interest accruing thereon shall be expended in aid of Superannuated Teachers of Common Schools in Upper Canada, according to these regulations. All annual subscriptions to this fund must be made before the end of the year for which they are intended; and all—

(8) Communications and Subscriptions in connection with this fund, must be made to the Chief Superintendent of Education for Upper Canada. (Subscriptions to be sent in as early in the year as possible.)

Approved by His Excellency the Administrator of the Governor in Council, as notified to the Chief Superintendent of Education, 20th May, 1854.

REMARKS.-No certificate in favour of an applicant should be signed by any teacher already admitted as a pensioner on the fund; in all cases they should be signed by a clergyman and other official persons. The forms, when properly filled up and signed, must be returned to the Department, accompanied by certificates from Ministers or other official persons known to the Department. These certificates must furnish satisfactory proof [1] of good moral character; [2] of sober, steady habits; and [3] of the number of years of service for which a pension is claimed. These conditions must be strictly complied with, otherwise the application cannot be entertained. The Council meets to consider all applications in July and December only of each year. As soon, therefore, as each case is decided, due notice will be sent to the applicants, without further application on their part.

The necessary forms can be obtained from the Department,
