We commend the subjoined judicious remarks, from the London Quarterly He- view, to the discriminating attention and re- gard as well of parents as teachers. They contain an important principle in refer- ence to the education of the young, and one which cannot be too carefully heed- ed: 7 "It is the rice of the age to substitute learning for educate the head and forget that there is a more important education necessary for the heart. The reason is cultivated at an age when nature does not furnish the elements necessary to a successful cultivation of it; and the child is solicited to reflection when he is only capable of sensation and emotion. In in- fancy the attention and the memory are only excited strongly by things which im- press the senses and move the heart, and a father shall instil, more solid and avail- able instruction in an hour spent in the fields, where wisdom and goodness are ex- emplified, seen ard felt, than a month spent in study, where they are expounded in stereotype aphorisms. No physician doubts that precocious children, in fifty cases for one are much worse for the discipline they have under- gone. The mind seems to have been strain- ed, and the foundations for insanity are laid. When the studies for maturer years are stuffed into the child's head, people do not reflect on the anatomical fact that the brain of an infant is not the brain ofa man, that the one is confirmed and can bear exer- other is growing and demands repose that to force the attention to ab- stract load the memory with chronological and historical and scientific short, to expect a child's brain to bi_ar with impunity the exertion of a man's, is just as rational as it would be to hazard the same sort of experiment on its muscle. The first eight or ten years of life should be devoted to the education of the to the formation of principles rather than to the acquirement of what is usually term- ed knowledge. Nature herself points out such a course for the emotions are then the liveliest, and most easily moulded, be- ing as yet unalloyed by passion. It is from this source that the mass of men are hereafter to draw their sum of happiness or misery the actions of the immense ma- jority are under all circumstances, deter- mined much more by feeling than by reflec- tion in truth life presents an infinity of occasions where it is essential to happiness that we should feel rightly: very few where it is at all necessary that we should think profoundly. Up to the seventh year of life, very great changes are going on in the structure of the brain, and demand therefore, the ut- most attention not to interrupt them by improper or over excitement. Just that degree of exercise should be given to the brain at this period is oral instruction, ex- emplified by objects which strike the sen- ses. It is perhaps unnecessary to add that at this period of life, special attention should be given both by parents and teachers, to the physical development of the Pure air and free exercise are indispensa- ble, and wherever either of these are with- held, the consequences will be certain to extend themselves over the whole future life. The seeds of protracted and hopeless sufferings have in innumerable instances been sown into the constitution of the child simply through ignorance of this great fundamental physical law and the time has come when the united voices of these innocent victims should ascend, "trumpet to the ears of parent and every teacher in the land, 'Give us free air and wholesome exercise; leave to develope our expanding energies in ac- cordance with the laws of our being., and full scope for the elastic and bounding im- pulses of our young blood.' A inisfi takes its 'jharactcr from the way in which we view it. Thus, when Dr. Spooner dined wi'.'ri a friend who had two turbulent sons, und they got into a row at HOW HE HUG GOOD STORY. Some ypars an eccentric old genius, whom for convenience we will call Barnes, was employed by n farmer, living in a town some six or seven miles westerly from the. Penob- scot river, to dig a well. Tbe soil and sub- stratum being mostly sand, old Barnes, after having progreseed downward about forty feet, found one morning upon going out early to his work, that the well had essentially caved in, and was full nearly to the top. So, having that desire which some men have, of knowing what will be said of them after they are dead, and no one being yet astir, he concealed him- self in a rank growth of burdocks by the side of a board fence near the mouth of the well, having first left his hat and frock upon the windless over the well. At length, breakfast being ready, a boy was dispatched to call him to his meal, when lo it was seen that Barnes was buried in the grave so unconsciously dug by his own hands The alarm being given, and the family assembled, it was decided first to eat breakfast, and then send for the coro- ner, the minister, and his wife and children. Such apath> did not flatter Barnes' self-es- teem a bit, but he waited patiently, determin- ed to hear what was to be said, and see what was to be seen. Presently, all parties arrived, and began "prospecting" the scene of the catastrophe, as people usually do in suhc cases. At length, they drew together, to exchange opinions as to what should be done. The Minister at once gave his opinion that they had better level up the well, und let Barnes remain "for" said he "he is now beyond the temptation to sin and j in the day of judgment, it will make no differ- I enee whether he is buried five feet under the j ground or fifu, for he is bound to come forth in either case. The Coroner like-wise agreed that "it would be a needless xpense to his family or the town to disinter him, when he was so effectually and therefore en- with the Minister. His wife thought that as "he had left his hat and frock, it would be hardly worth while to dig him out for the rest of his clothes; and so it was set- tled to let him remain. But poor old Barnes, who liad no breakfast, and was not at all pleased with the result of the inquest, lay quiet until the shade of even- ing stole over the landscape, then he quietly decamped to parts unknown. After remain- ing infocmiio for about three years, one morn- ing he .-uddenly appeared (hatless and frock- lebs as he went) at the door of the farmer for whom he had ngreed to dig the unfortunate well. To say that an avalanche ot questions were rain- ed upon him as to his mysterious reappearance, would create but a feeble idea of the excite- ment which his bodily presence created. But the old man bore it all quietly, and at length informed them, that, on finding himself bu- ried, he waited for them to dig him out, until his patience as exhausted, and then he set to work to dig himself out, and only the day be- fore had succeeded for, his ideas being con- fused by the pressure of the earth at the time he was buried he had dug very much at ran- dom, and, instead of coming directly to the surface, he came out in the town of Holden, nix, miles cast of the Penobsmt river Xo further explanations were sought. SOMETIMES the sun seems to hang for a half hour in the horizon, only just to show- how glorious it can be. The day is done; the fervor of the shining is over, and the sun hangs redder than gold the west, making every thing unspeak- ably beautiful, with the rich effulgence which it sheds on side. So God seems to let some -people when their duty in this world is done, hang in the west, that men may look on them and see how beatifut they are. there are some hanging in the west II n w'no rears up one child In Christian. virtue, or recovers one fallen creature to G'od, builds a temple more precious than Solomon's or St. Peter's more enduring tlian earth or sky.
