Schools.

From the year 1808 to 1818, there were raised in New Hampshire $70,000 annually by law, for the support of common schools.

This amount was raised by a separate tax, levied throughout the state, in the ratio of taxation for the state tax. Since 1818 the yearly amount of the sum raised has been $90,000. This is the amount required by law, but a few towns raise more than they are required. The Legislature assumes no control over the immediate appropriation, but leaves this to each town.

The state possesses a literary fund, amounting to $64,000, which has been formed by a tax of one half per cent, on the capital of the banks. This fund has been accumulating; but by a recent act of the Legislature, the proceeds of it are hereafter to be annually divided among the towns, in the ratio of taxation.

There is, moreover, an annual income of $9,000 from the tax of a half per cent. on banks, which is divided in the

Some of the towns have also separate school funds.
