feels tint something lovely is ceasing lrom

desolation, over tho lonely thoughts, that
coiao up liko spectres from tho grave, to
haunt our midnight musings,
Two years ago, 1 took up my residence
for a few weeks, in a country villngo iu
tho eastern part of New, England. Soon
alter my arrival, i became acquainted with
a lovely girl, apparently about seventeen
years of ago. She had lost tho idol of her
pure heart's purest love, and tho shadows
of deep and holy memories were resting
liko tho wing of death upon her brow. 1
brst met her in tlio presence ot tho mirth
ful. She was, indeed, a creature to bo Wor
liped; hor brow was garlanded by tho
young year's sweetest flowers ; her yellow
IocIir were hanging hcautilttlly and low
upon hor bosom ; and sha moved through
the crowd with such a floating, unearthly
grace, that tho bewildered gjzer looked
almost lo sco her fado away into tho air,
liko tho creation of some pleasant dream.
oho seemed cheerlul, aud oven gay; yet 1
saw that her gaiety was but tho mockery
of her feelings. Mio smiled, but there was
something in her smile which told, that its
mournlul beauty was but tho bright reueo-
tion of a tear; and her eyelids, at times,
closed heavily down, as if btrupgling to re
press tho ttdo ot ajouy that was bursting
up from her heart's urn. fchc looked as if
she could havo lelt tho sccuo ot testivity,
and gone out beneath tho quiet stars, and
laid her forehead down upon tho fresh
green earth, and poured out her stricken
soul, gush after gush, till it mingled with!
tho eternal fountain ol lifo and purity;
Days and weeks pnssid on, and that
sweet girl yavo mo her ojuudenco, and I
became to her as a brother. Tho smile
upon her lip was fiint, tho purple veius
up.m her cheek grew visiblo, and tho ca
dences of her voice becamo daily more
weak and tremulous. Un n quiet evening

A Stubborn Stripling-
A big stripling, awkward youth, fresh

Ho is tho founder of tho ''Evangelical Re

himself to train teachers to speak tho Eng
lish in its purity and teach it correctly.
Dr. Kc?slcr,as Qermau Teacher will give
nil tho pupils a fair opportunity to learn to
read and write tho noblo languago of Ger
many in all its purity. Tho best arrange
ments will also bo nude ti communicate
such other branches of knowledge as aro
required by teachers.
It wo desire good schools tor tho pooplo
generally, wo must, in tho first place, pro
vido good teachers; for without good teach
ers' there can bo no schools." Hut good
teachers do not fall from tho clouds
nor grow up from tho ground, but
thoy must bo taught aud trained, for, "no
one is bom a schoolmaster." ilo who is
to teach others correctly must first bo taught
himself. Mcro kuowledgo or scicuco gen
erally is not sufficient to mako a man a
good teacher of youth. Ihoro aro a great
many learned mou whose attainments aro
very extcnsivo,who aro yet not 'aft to teach,'
and aro unfitcd to act as teachers. Teach
ing and keeping school, to bo done prop
erly, demand peculiar qualthoations, which
must bo received by bein taught, and for
this Teudterv bemmurtcs aro indispensa
Dut if a school is to be good, tho training
and discipline of tho youtia must go hand
in hand with their instruction. Good or.
dor or discipline is a part of the instruc
tion which schools require. JNo ono should
begin to teach until ho has learned from
experienced teachers how children should
bo treated, differing ns they do in their
bodily constitution, in their mentjl charac
ter and tho habits which they havo formed
at home how is ho to proceed in order to
lead in tho right way begins such as theso ?
To this important branch ot tlio teacher s
education tho proper attention will be giv
en tho Allcutown bemtnary.
l'or tho Uerman counties ot l'onnsylva
nia uieio English teachers, who understand
neither tho language, nor tho feeliugs and
habits of our pooplo aro unsuitcd, and tho
German counties should theroforo have
somo of their own youth trained as teach
crs, so that they may uot bo uuder tho ne
cessity of bringing in strange teachers
from abroad, It' a teacher entirely Eng
lish has chsrgo of children speaking only
German, tho ohildrcn do not under
stand tho teacher and learning aro both
alike toilsome and tedious, With
such a teacher tho children may per
haps loarn ta rcid English fluently, but
they learn tho languago as mcro parrot3,
by repeating whit they have heard without
understanding the meaning of tho words,
In this manlier an important part of tho
precious school time is lost, tho children
are net taught to think, their uudcrsUnd
iug is not awakened, aud thus, with all
their learning, tlio children remain igno
rant simply because the teacher is not in a
situation to speals intelligibly to his schol
ars' and to explain nnd illustrate wuat they
ought to learn. What is tho uso of Eng
lish if it is not understood 1 A man might
understand how to read a hundred cr a
thousand languages, but if bo did not un
derstand what ho had read, ho would after
all, bo nothing tho wiser, tt is not tho
letters ond words, but tho sense and con
tents of tho words which enlighten the un
derstanding and give loarning.
Old and experienced teachers aro well
awaro that a lorcigu or uuktiown lauguago
is best acquired by translating it into our
mother languago. l'or our German chil
dren wo should, therefore, havo teachers
who have iho coinmaud not ouly ot tho
English but also of tho German, so as to
bo able to oxcrciso the children by trans
lating from German into Euglish and from
English into German. In this way the
childicnwould at tho same, time and without
any inoreaso ot labor, learn not only to
read but also to understand both langui
gcs. And two languages educate tho mind
bettor than ouo alono; two languages aro
liko two eyes or two ears with which wo
can fco aud hoar twico as much as with

two languages to two keys, each of which
opens a door of useful knowledge.

To Cn.uti.ES K. RucKAi.EW, Chairman of
tho Democratic Stato Central Committco :
Dear Sir At tho lato Democratic Stato
Convention, tho local claims of the different
sections of tho State were generously waived
for tho purposo of securing my continuanco
in the high and important office of Supremo
Judge. Tho energy with which thoso
claims aro note urged fur tho offico recent
ly vacated on tho Supremo Donch, shows
tho extent of tho sacrilicos then made, and
tho nature of the dissatisfaction which may
exist after tine section shall bo gratified
and the other disappointed by the anticipa
ted nomination. The Convention, when
ro-asscuibled, might be ablo to harmonize
theso claims, if that body had two nomina
tions to make, instead of one. I thcrcfuro
feol at liberty to decline, as I now do, tho
ro-nomination tendered to mo by tho Dem
ocratic Stato Convention. In thus promo
ting harmony, I consult my own earnest
desire to retires from judicial life, aud at
tbo same time put tho delegates to no in
convenience, as they will bo obliged to come
together again for tho purposo of nominat
ing a caudidato to fill tho existing vacancy.
I havo been laboriously engaged in ju
dicial duties nearly twenty-four years a
longer period of servico than that of any
living Judgo in Pennsylvania. I have
been thus engaged uuder threo changes of
tho Coustitution. 1 havo aided to tho ex
tent of my abilities in bringing up tho ar
rearages of business, in replacing upon
their ancient foundations some of tho land
marks of tho law which had been inadver
tently removed, and in maintaining tho
purity aud tho independence of tho Judi
ciary. I have constantly cudoavored to do
justice without delay, lo ir, favor, affection
or ill will. 1 now occupy, by tho voico oi
tho peoplo of my native Etate, tho highest
judicial position in it. My long career as
a Judgo has received the approbation oi
tho Democratio party iu tho ro-nominatioo
so getiorou ly and unanimously undo by
tho Stato Convenion. All my ambition
is satisfied. I have but ono wish left, and
that is to return to tho freedom and itide
peudeuco of private lii'o. I do this with
a grateful heart for thf long continued
c-infidcucc of my fell w citizen, and in tho
full trust that they will appreciate aud ap
provo of my motives.

Gen. Packer's Acceptanoo.
Gen, Packer, on being apprized of Lis
nomination for Governor of Pennsylvania,
by a committco appointed for that purpose,
was introduced to tho Convolution, and ac
cepted the houor in the following addross:
Mr. President and Members uf tho Con
vention : For mo to assure you, fir, and
tho delegates hero assembled, that I am
thaukful for tho high honor conferred on
mo, would bo but t'.intly to oxprcss tho
profound feelings of gratltudo which I en
tertain. To bo selected under any cir
cumstances as a candidate of the Democratio
party in Pennsylvania, for tho highest of
ticu in its gift, is a most distinguished hon
or ; but, sir, how vastly that houor height
ened when such a mark of confidence is
bestowed after an exciting contest, and
after coming in contact with gentlemen so
distinguished, so honorable, and so worthy
as wcro my competitors on this occasion.
Iu accepting the n:iniuation, Mr, Presi
dent I confess I would bo discouraged wcro
it not for tho reflection that the Democratio
batalions in marching on to victory loo't
less to their standard bearer, thin to lha
flag of their party that good old flag
which for eighty yoirs has ''braved tho
battle and tho broezo" and upon whoso
broad folds aro cmbhzonod, iu lottsrs of
living lijht :
Tho Union the Constitution;
Tho equality of the States;
Tho equality of classes ;
Religious liberty tho right cf ovory
man to worship God according lo tho dic
tates of his own conscience.
The right of tho people, in every gov
ernment, to enact their own laws:
That flag, Mr. President, w's doar to
our fathers who havo gono beforo us, and
around it tho Democracy wilh rally with
that enthusiasm which has heretofore, -and
will, I hope, again in October uejtf be
crowned with glorious victory.
Pennsylvania has just placed one of hor
own distinguished sous in tho highest office
in the world to morrow ho -will outer up
on tho dischargo of his official duties
what a burning shamo it would bo, if
at tho first general election alcr his eleva
tion the Democratic pirty should fail to
sustain his administration. For my own
part, in assuming the position assigned
me by your partiality, I promise you, that
so far as I havo ability, tho campaign shall
be so conducted as it least to roflcct no
discredit jjpon this Convention or upon thj
Gcntlemeu, again I tliank you for tba
