night in it. In case that any pupil shall be convicted of robbery,
within or outside of the School, he shall be punished with six
stripes, the same penalty being inflicted upon those who relapse
into their faults in lessons or writing after having been a week in
the place of opprobrium.
The Teacher shall take care that all punishments be applied to
the Children with all possible forbearance and equity, in propor-
tion to the nature of the faults and persistence therein.
Failures in reading, in the copy-books, in accounting, or mem-
ory lessons shall be regarded as relapses, if they are repeated within
the space of one week.
It remains under the immediate responsibility of the Teacher
alone to look out for the most punctual observance of this regula-
tion, as also the only object to which everything is directed, and that
is, the advancement and instruction of all the Children.
The immediate fiscal and Judge, who at the same time, shall
observe the conduct of the Director and apply to him the punish-
ment which he may merit according to his faults, shall be the Illus-
trious Ayuntamiento, from whose sentence appeal can be made only
to the Citizen Chief of this Department.
The only punishments which can be applied to the Director
either for the infraction of any article of this regulation, or for
any other grave fault, relative to his ministry, of which he may be
convicted, shall be: 1st, a discount from the salary of the next
month, and, 2nd, the absolute deprivation of his office, a previous
succinct report to this effect having been approved by the Citizen
Chief of this Department.
The pecuniary penalty mentioned in the preceding article shall
not be less than one dollar, nor exceed six.
This ordinance, before being signed by the Illustrious Ayunta-
miento, shall be laid before the Teacher of the School, in order
that, within the limit of three days, having examined the whole
in detail, he may be able to make criticisms which occur to him,
which shall either be answered, if they are not thought reasonable,
or shall be made use of by addition to or amendment of, any of
the rules prescribed by the commission empowered for this purpose.
