A school-teacher, who has been
engaged a lonig tiniein his profes
siJb, and witnessed the influence of
newspapers on ie minds of a fam-'
ily of children, writes as follobw
"I haveTfound it to be the univer
sal fact, without exception, that
those scholai of both sexes, and of
all ages, who have had access ito
newspapers at bomne, when com ar
ed. with those' 'who have not, .are
better zeaders, excelling in pronun
ciation, and cojnsequently read more
understandingly, and are better
spellers, and define words with ease
and accuraney They obtain' a'prac
tical knowledge of geography in ~al
most half the time it reqtires'theri;'
as the newspaper has made them'fa
miliar with' the location of.the most
important 'places, nations, their gov
ernments and doings.- They 'are
better'gramsmarians; for haviag. be
come:so. familiar with.every variety
of the newspaper, from -the. e-m'
mon-plaee advertisement"to the fin,
ished and classical oration of the
statesman, they more readily com
prebend the meaning of his text
and consequently, analyze its 'con
struetion with accuracy."
