EDUCATIONAL. , ,,,
The kind of education needed In our coun
try, and the best' means of securing it, are con'
eidVatlons of grave' importance. The true
patriot and philanthropist readily sees that their
importance fartranscends that of anyand all
other considerations connected with the mate
rial growth of 6ur country. It is true that theV
do not now1 command that interest and atte'nliott
from the Prorai;
they readily gr
tTdw the notion
has .nothin e to do with the ed otation. or with the
educational 'Interests', of the peop'loi but that
they are bfa local, a personal, or a philanthrope
It is hardly necessary to try to show'thit
auch views are exceedingly short-sighted and
illiberal. No person who has a proper' un
derstanding of the nature and character of 6'ur
institutions, and of the genius of our Govern
ment, can fail to see the fallacy of such views.
Jtisari oft-repeated saying, that " the prosperity
And perpetuity of a republican form of govern
ment are based upon the general intelligence of
the people." If this be true and we believe it
so then it must be evident that the 'Govern-'
ment has indeed the deepest interests at stake,'
in me proper euucauon 01 me people. ,
But it should always be borne in, mind, that
the education of the youth of our country is
continually going on ; whether in accordance
with sound views, or nnder proper influences,
or not. When men, therefore, undervalue ana
even denounce the system of public instruction,
which has met the apnrobation of the best men
of the present day, they ought to be made to
understand, that it our youth are not trained in
good schools and by properly qualified teach
ers, they will most assuredly be trained or
biassed by the most objectionable influences,
and corrupting associations of the degraded
and vicious portions of society, with which
every community is unfortunately cursed. That
there ore men, high in position, filling places
of influence, who not only disapprove of the
general education of the masses, but pronounce
the whole modern educational mtvement, as '
Utopian or unworthy of confidence, is caass for
regret and shame, but not for discouragement
to the real friends of true progress. Such men
are the " impracticables of the present day,
and should be pitied) rather than denounced.
But education is the densend of the present
and whoever throws obstacles in the way
i of its onward march, will surelv mil. and brine
disgrace open themselves by their puerile and
fccJih"eflort. . However. vairaej incorrect, or
Sffifffienbtkinsl oC faany may be, as to the
;dnd or edacauon neeaeuj were imui largo
portion of ; the people a growing demand for a
thorough mental and moral education, and
there is now a higher appreciation than form'
crly of schools of a high character, and of such
teachers as have the true spirit and right quali
fications for tho duties of their sacred office'.

I propose to give a brief statement of the
claims of education, and the best means for
securing it, with special application to this
THE TIGHT BOOT ,
UOW A YOUNO HAN WENT INTO A BALL-ROOK'.
About five years ago, I happened at a wed
ding in one of the backwood counties of
Georgia, at the house of Major S. Being the
wealthiest man in those parts, he was desirous
of giving a great flare-up, ana for this pnrpose
had invited a large number of guests, to wit
ness the nuptials of the eldest of three bloom
ing, cherry-lipped daughters. Among the in
vited guests, I observed tho face of Bill P., a
representative of the county at the " Universi
ty," whom I had known as the butt of his class
while there, bat who was destined to act it con
spicuous part on the present memorable oc
casion. Bill was an original mi generis. He
was peculiarly attached to his head, which was
unique in shape, and clothed with curls which
resembled less Hyperion's than the setting sun
in hue. Ho was six feet two in his stockings,
with legs meeting a long way up, and more
resembling a pair of compasses than anything
I can at present imagine. Add to this, he was
twenty years of age, avid recking with verdancy
and bashfulncss, and you have his daguerreo
type. The ceremony had been performed, the
hour was waxing late, and all seemed to be en
joying the flow of soul.
I had exhausted the fun from tho various
groups, and was looking about fbr a subject of
interest, when I perceived Bill silting like Na
poleon, solitary and alone, with a face, tho
agony of whose expression I shall never forgets
Approaching him, I kindly inquired tho cause
of his distress, and proffered him assistance.
"Give me your arm," said he, " I am death
ly sick ; let us find a room and go to bed."
He grasped my arm convulsively, aud, limp
ing along, we went into a private room which
Major S. nad assigned mc ns my quarters for
the night. T soon discovered the cause of
Bill's malady, which was, a small pair of boots
I on his large feet, worn with tho view of cur
tailing the fair proportions of those members.
He endeavored in vain to release his feet) and,
as it was impossible to get the assistance of a
servant, I volunteered to tug at them myself,
when he bad completely exhausted his strength.
(We succeeded at once in pulling off one j bat
the other resisted our every effort. Bill was in
agony j his toot was Dadly swollen, and yet he i
did not cut the boot. At last he arose, his
eyes in a " fine frenzy rolling," and dripping
with perspiration, and pronouncing anathemas,
not loud, out deep, upon all gatherings in gen
eral, and country weddings in particular, he
divested himself of every garment save that
one terrible boot. The merriment in the ad
joining chamber contrasted strangely with the I
I anguish in mine.
Tho guests had now all gone into the ball-
Rom. I could hear every note of preparation
made by the fiddler. Approaching nearer the
wall, I discovered a door which opened into,
the room wnere mwj .cm nwm vuuimeucingii
tho dance. By this time, Bill had recovered
strength, and recomraencou ine lug with lit
boot. In vain he ensayed every position apt
attitude. At last he thought hu might accoro
plish bia object by placing his back to the wal'
neii men of o'ur.countijwtlci

telri'rny assistance., lie placed himself nmly

gan' to ,pull, gradually yielding, and bidding
him male "a long pull, a strong pull, and a
'pull altogether," the boot unexpectedly gave
way, and with 'ft' tlo doorj and Bill went turn

'ADVENTURES OP AxlIOHNING GOWN.
A lady was anxions to make her hatband a
present on the occasion of his birthday and
as it happened to fall in winter, and at that
time in ft very severe winter, she thought a
comfortable 'morning gown would be a most
useful acquisition to his domestic comforts.
So she went to a shop and purchased a fine
Persian patttrn merino and well-wadded morn
ing gown. She had forgotten tho exact height
of her husband ) bat, 'to make sure of its use
fulness, she thought best to purchase one rather
too long than too short. The day was rather
.wet; her husband returned in the afternoon
from his office, and she presented him with the
new article of comfort; and he fancied it a
great comfort after he bad put off his wet
clothes. But it was too long about ten inches
too long. "Oh, never mind, my dear, said the
affectionate wife, "I can easily shorton it to
suit you." They had a party in the evoning )
they were very merry. After they had gone to
bed, tho wind was making such a noise, and
- rain so dashing against the windotv, that
the lady could not sleep j her husband, bow
ever, slept soundly. She arose without disturb
ing him took the morninir cown and com
menced her work ; cut off about the length of
ten inches, to make it Buit her husband s stat
ureand then went to bed again.
She had to rise early next morning. The
husband slept well, which is frequently the
case after a merry evening party. Scarcely
had the rood ladv left the room, when a sister.
,a good-natured, elderly lady, who lived with
them, stole into the room, upon tip-toe, in or
der not to disturb her brother-in-law, and took
the morning gown. Hastening to her room,
she cut Off ten inches, as she knew on the pre
vious night that it was too long for him. An
hoilr after, thjj master awoke, add was now
anxious to surprise his affectionate wife. He
rang the bell; the servant came up, and asked
his' pleasure; upon which he Toquested her to
wrap up the. morning gown, and carry it to his

profit on their premiums, and the consequent
saving to persons insuring with thlt Company.
