They will not be a Farmer and he is quite convinced that there is no other honest vocation. But judging from the character of this dutchman As known among his neighbors i am quite convinced that High Insatiate avarice makes him pious.

A company will be Organ Zed forthwith and the grading of the Road will be commenced As soon As the Frost leaves the ground. From the following which we take from the Peoria a democratic press a it will be seen that the work May be commenced when $100000 shall live be.-., uht Cribei and 5 per j cent paid in.

In View of All these things it becomes a question How much can Burlington afford to subscribe to the rail Koa i Ami what is the least sum Lor her own credit and advantage that a he Shooll talk about a Hundred thousand is the smallest sum which we have heard named and As we Are comparatively out of a left and As the sum named would neither break nor disgrace us we venture the Hope that the proposition will not fall Short of that amount. We have among us a goodly degree of wealth but better than this we have an Active intelligent and enterprising population who when they put their shoulders to the wheel can successfully carry through any project falling within.

The teacher is often a poor nondescript and unworthy of even common re i and there Are so Many of this class that their influence is fatal to the Honor of the profession. Mere boys Are employed Ai teachers. Boy that do not understand the rudiments of science much less the Art of teaching. Mere girl half educated even in the limited sense in which that term is used when applied to females yes Suh girls Are teacher Iris that cannot perform the simple a operations in Smith medic girls that cannot parse a sentence correctly that can Nei tier maintain respect among their pupils nor men also who have not a pro a or respect for the business Cor the spirit to pursue it. Make it a stepping Stone to something else and while they might con-1 tribute to the Honor of the profession they abandon it As unworthy of their talents. Thus it is that the profession of teaching is abused j and burdened till the title of a a teachers is associated in the minds of Manv with poverty or the want of character and Talent the intelligent and reflecting do not however estimate the profession by the character of those who should be and will be Ere Long we Hope ruled out of it but by its intrinsic importance by the necessary connexion it with the improvement and happiness of their children the. _.
