Keeley thought that notwithstanding what May seem to be implied in these lims of uncertainty As to the result of education the scripture Maxim will be verified in parental experience Quot train up a child in the Way he should go and he will not Dentart from teachers have a responsibility As Well As Parent in this training. Parents Are sometime incompetent to this work. Unfavourable circumstance May preclude the needed attention to it on their part.

If this is to be Dune at ally and with out it one generation will Mako no improvement us it a another it is to be done by the Combine 1 influence of the pulpit and the school. The influence of the pastor May lie very great both directly and indirectly. The teacher has of a a unities which the Parent has not. influencing aright a few of the most influential scholars a corrective and beneficial in Cuenco May be exerted upon Tho whole school he showed by several pertinent illustrations Tho Efficacy often of adopting some ingenious methods for correcting indirectly certain bad disc positions.

Doe spoke of Tho Paramount importance of Tho habit of punctuality As the basis of Success at school and of the too com non neglect of it at note. Tho Stream will not flow higher than Tho Fountain. Parents expect sometimes too much and sometimes too Little of their children. Aud the Samo is True of teachers. Children who Aro comparatively Little can i for at Home May be much improved by the faithful attentions of their teachers and pastor. But not to much is to lie expected of such children As of that a whose family and Van tages have been greater. He expressed his on Joy mint of those meetings and his belief that much Good is to to accomplished by them. The Rev. Or. Jaques kit pc of Tho practicability and importance of teachers co out citing with parents in the great common work entrusted to them. To referred in enforcement of this idea to the provision made by the state for moral instruction in our schools. Whatever May justly by Aid of the Power of Early habit he questioned whether this would preclude the Uejo comity of applying the scrip ure Rule of a line Union line and Precept a on parents must do ail they can. But Tho Aid of the school teacher is essential. Sometimes by a direct address a it on a particular subject sometimes by a Mere reference to a moral lesson in the Reading Book and sometimes by instruction Nuu scripture As Well As by it a Sunal example the May effectually co of Prato with the Parent in correcting the a l habits and disposition of children. To protested earnestly against the practice too prevalent in some schools and families of making use of coarse and violent parents should see that their children Start punctually for school and teachers thou id Sec that they arrive punctually at school. Rev. Or. Keeley spoke hopefully of favourable social iut Lences adapted in certain cases to modify and Correct the habits of children. Or. Emery mention Al the old habit of teachers visiting the parents which he thought too much neglected now. Or. Nichols spoke of the Power of habit and specified four particulars to which the attention of a Arenta and teacher should be seriously directed vix a obedience patience punctuality and t Borough Nett.

We immediately notified the company thereof and were surprised to learn that the policy Holt i not been reported or the Premium remitted and the party issuing the policy had exceeded his authority in so doing and the office of course ignorant of the existence of such a policy allot which were grounds sufficient for litigation particularly As the company at that time had not completed Timeir organisation and it would have been very i for it i it sup Hgt sed unprepared for any demand for loss.

Fore the committee. Lie was summoned be Causo the committee had Learned through or. Chill a of this City that he had been retained is counsel for the defense of John Brown through or. Andrew. Tho committee desired to know from what source funds were derived what interests he represented and what motives Cha Jfe. his intervention or. Andrew stated that when intelligence reached Boston that John Brown had been urged to trial without time for preparation without Opportunity of being reached by his friends and have his Case properly examined and while prostrated on his bed and unable to sit up Ami instruct counsel it lie had any the whole proceeding struck his mind and that of most people whom he met As a judicial outrage certainly without any parallel in Tho history of Massachusetts. He supposed Virginia was Strong enough to conduct such a Case with Justice and propriety and without being excited by unfounded Are Hensin a. To confessed too sympathy fora Man whom he believed the victim of an idea and whom misfortune had probably been prec pita cd by what his family and friends had seen and suffered at the hands of the slave Power in Kansas. He had entertained a Good opinion of him As a Brave and conscientious defender of the free state cause which he considered the cause of Liberty and Good government in which All free settlers of Kansas whether from North or South had a common interest. In consequence of his own reflections and the suggestions of others representing nil shades of opinion is there was no time to lose he assumed the rest it on ability of engaging Southern counsel in Washington und Richmond whose business it should lie to secure John Brown the fullest and fairest trial of which the circumstances would admit. He according guaranteed and paid s1300 in fees of which or. Chilton of Washington received one thousand and or. Green of Richmond three Hundred dollars. This Money was refit ded by Tho voluntary contributions of various gentlemen when they became informed of his interference and who approved its purpose and accomplishment. Many contributed who were less anti slavery than himself but who thought Tho excitement would be quieted by a proper defence. No concealment was observed or desired in the whole matter. Tho committee inquired or. Andrewes opinion concerning John Browne a conduct in Kansas and the transaction attributed to him particularly Homo stealing and the potato Tinnie homicides. Or. Andrew aus Rcd he had always understood that in the soul lists Between the i to and slave state parties Tho horses were regarded us the spoils of War and he was not Nawro that Brown formed any exception lie had no belief from information which had reached him that Brown was present at the potawatomi a homicides but he Hud Long since Hoard that Brown and Many other people were convinced Flint Tho potawatomi a affair was one of imperative necessity As a measure of self defense. Slaving never been in Kansas he could not so Peak of Verenal know Cldgg. The committee inquired if or. Andrew would have Felt n sympathy for Brown on account of his ser a i a to the free stale cause if he had known that Brown went to Kansas to train himself and others and org Nice a settled plan of violence to invade the slave states. Or. An Drew replied certainly not. His convictions Sci anti slavery but lie was opposed to their propagation by violence and arms. Heuson and intelligence were the Only weapons Liu desired to employ. As a repel Dicuns he Felt a great cause to complain of the Marjor s Kerry affair is most unfortunate and unjustifiable from any Point of View in which he could regard it. But since i of Luious were asked lie would give them frankly. Intending no to anybody to considered John Brown and Harper s be. Ryas the fruit native to the tree which the slave Power a i planted that in View of the aggressions upon free state men it Tho territories Organ exist in the save states and approved by leading Southern men and the sufferings nud disasters to those settlers which How cd therefrom. He Del not think it remarkable that Tew men should have been o incited thereby up to the Point of armed retaliation. However much this transaction was to be condemned or deplored it was not comparable it Point of Public danger to Tho is nuke made upon a senator of a it Schu scots Oil the very floor of the Senate an i for no other reason than an holiest discharge of his Fluty and a fearless expression of ebon Talpa which Warf Wenhuy applauded throughout the South. Thai was a direct and Der Fly blow aimed it civil Liberty and replies in tatic government in America. Among other facts or. Andrew stated that he had never seen Brown but ouch and that accidentally. That while to impressed him to a Man of decided character lie then Bali cd his mind was strangely disturbed and in writing Here to judge Blair to provide counsel fur his defence he had expressed the opinion that evidence of his insanity could be procure from Boston to Kansas which was afterwards literally verified. After answering these nud other qui a Ion. Or. Andrew desired to record his protest against this Assumption of ten Dale in cd Power. He contended that the Senate does not possess the he wer to obtain testimony by coercive inquiry under the Resolution pursuant to which he was summoned because the Resolution contains no parliamentary Purt we but Only an apparent Effort to Aid some judicial end by Len Gutive Means. That this investigation i not undertaken As incidental to the Power of the Senate to try impeachments nor its Power to judge of the qualifications of it i Embra nor its Power to punch contempt against its own authority nor its Power to protect its own privileges and that the discovery fall the matters pointed at by the Resolution would not tend to instruct the legislative mind in the amendment of existing statues or in the framing of new legislation. That he regarded the Power to perhaps no City in Tho world has a Cen subject to so Many changes in respect to the location of business As new York. The most noted quarters of the town once occupied solely by pro Vale resilience have become or Are gradually becoming the great business Marls of the Day and Banks stores and manufactories usurp the Sites where formerly the Homes of the wealthy stood. Tho Home journal in noticing these changes Speaks of Bond Street once the aristocratic Quarter As fast changing its character Ami becoming a rival of Tho Busy streets. Many of the residences of the a famous men Quot of the past have been turned into Waro hours and elegant stores. Tho Homo journal so peaks tints respecting Otto of these changes which shows what revolutions the tide of Progress has made in Gotham the famous number sixteen Well known to nil new yorkers As the residence of Gideon Leo when mayor of this City has also undergone n change. It was in this mansion always celebrated for the hospitality of its owners that general Jackson when president of Tho United states was received and sumptuously entertained by or. Lee. Tho identical front parlor wherein a old Hickory a welcomed the thousands that called on him during his visit is now a spacious nud elegant Saloon filled with or Fri Iury and All Tho paraphernalia belonging to Batchelor and Brown s establishment whose world wide reputation is As just is it is Honor Noble. A few years More and Bond Street doubtless will to among the Bazaar marts in the City. Other business firms will soon follow the example set by Batchelor and Brown and the old dwellings will disappear to make room Lor stores mud shops.
