^CAMI* OK INSTRUCTION.-We are pleased to
M that Governor Magrath has decided to
wert the military academies ot the State
a camp of instruction, and tu conneribr, as

ages ot tit teen a^d seventeen. This u a
te measure. Parents are u ow, scattered
ne longer dud schools for their young, and
ehould not be allowed to run to weeds,
military education of our boys is almost
ouly sort of schooling neoessaryiin the pre
kt circumstances of the country. It will be
jil, if, at the same time, the boys be taught
it ?cal agriculture, and should be set to
so many hours ot the day ir* making

j A doggrelizing friend, looking os wofulas the
i Knight of Lallauchn after his heating, has
brought us a screed of consolations, which he
administers_pro bono p?b??o through our me?
dium. His head is right on the subject, no
doubt, though rather full; but his heart is
heavy, in spite of his own medicine, and his
face four inches louger than bis wont: He has
lost house and liquor; but laments over all the
fate of his only pair of trowsers. The pair he
wears is-a borrowed one, and like the road
he has had ta travel-corduroy:

Once at the"hill-foot you can travel slower
Once down the mountain you can get no lower.
I While tumbling headlong you still found it

j No danger now of butting 'gainst the sky;
I you're on the lev_l now, if not the square,
And of still deeper failings need not lear.
I Your home destroyed will cost, no more in paints,
! You'll ii?vc no troubh- ?o collect the rents

j And lind thc floor of earth exceeding cheap.
I Your skiey roof tho linc winds ventilate,
.Tho slurs mock candles in your dome of state;
inure expense of gas or tjprrebeuo,
And for your chamber bushes make the.screen.
Cool brooklets yield you bathing tubs, and moss,
When you would towel, leave you at no loss.
Your.watch is gone! you cry; ?ind-even so,
But the best washes still are made lo go;
You've looked upon* it, neighbor, for the last
And still have comfort-you have had youi
