The Education of the Henri.
It is the vice of the age to substitute learning
for wisdom?to educate tlie head., and
forget that there is a more important education
nccessi ry lor the heart. The reason
is cultivated at an age when nature does
not furnish the elements necessary to a successful
cultivation of it; and the child is solicited
to reflection, when he is only capable
of sensation and emotion. In infancy
the attention and the memory are only excici

senses, and move the heart, and the father
can instil more solid and available instruction
in an hour spent in the field?;, where
wisdom and goodness are exemplified, soon

where they are expounded in stereotyped
No physician doubts, that precocious

The mind seems to have heen strained, and
the foundation for insanity are laid. When
the studies of imturcr years are stufted into
the heat! of a child, people do not reflect on
the anatomical fact, that the brain of an intant
is not the brain of a man ; that the 0110
is and can hear exertion, the other is growing,
and requires repose; that to force the
attention to ab -tract tacts, to load the memory
with chronological and historical or
scientific detail in short, to expect a childs
brain to bear with impunity the exertions
of a man's, is just as rational as it would be
to hazard the satn;' sort of experiment on its
The first eight or ten years of life should
be devoted to the education of the heart?to
the formation of principles, rather than the
acquirement of what is usually termed
knowledge. Nature herself points out
such a course ; for the emotions are then
the liveliest, and most easily moulded, bein<r
as yet unalloyed by passion. It is from
this source that tlx; mass of men are hereaftei
lo draw their sum of happiness or misery;
the actions of the immense majority
are, under all circumstances, determined
much more by feeling than reflection ; in
truth, lite presents an infinity of occasions
where it is essential to happiness that we
should feel rightly ; very few where it is at
all necessary that we should think profoundly*
Up to the seventh year of life, very great
changes are going 011 in the structure oftho
brain, and demand, therefore, the utmost attention
not to interrupt them by improper or
over excitement. Just that degree of exercise
should be given to the brain at this pe>
riod, as is necessary to its health ; and the
T)cst is oral instruction, exemplified by objects
which strike the senses.

given, both by patents and teachers, to the
phisical developement of the child. Pure
air and free exercise are indispensible, and
wherever these are withhold, the consequences
will be ccrtam to extend themselves
over the whole future life. The seeds of
protracted and hopeless suffering have, in
innumerable instances, been sown in the
constitution of the child simply through ignorance
of this great fundamental physical
law; and the time has come when the united
voices of those innocent victims should
ascend, "trumpet-tongued," to the ears of
every parent and teacher in the land, 'Give
us tree air find wholesome exercise; leave
to develope our expanding energies in accordance
with the laws of our being, and
full scope for the elastic and bounding impulses
of our blood !"

j There is a. most mischievous enemy of
1 the apple, that attacks the fruit only ; and
! where it prevails is known as the apple
I worm. Jt is a true caterpillar, not a grub
, like the plum and cherry weevils; and is
! the larvte of the moth called Carpocapsa
j pomoticlla, the codling or fruit moth. In
| some years tins apple worm nas ocen so
'common in New ISngland that a very large
| part, of the apples were rendered worthless
! by it. It is very rare in the interior of the
States, but we have occasionally met with
i", and it is to be apprehended it will become
I still more, common. The moth appears in
; the latter part of June, or beginning of July,
and without puncturing the fruit, deposj
it their eggs in the hollow at the blossom
! end of the fruit, where the skin is most ten!
der, and the worm the least liable to disturi
bance. As soon as the worm is hatched,
: which is in a few days, it commences eating
i into the young fruit, making their way from
i the eye towards the core, and marking its
: presence by the powder thrown out of the
j opening. X he moth seems to preter carly
' to late apples, and the thin-skinned summer
' fruits suffer the most extensively. In the
I course of two or tliree weeks the worm was
j burrowed to the core, and attained its full
i size. To get rid of the matters made in its
j excavations, it cuts a round hole through
the side of the apple, and thus is enabled to
j keep its borrow clear. Sometimes the
; worm leaves the apple before it falls, but
! usually the injurv it has received causes it
| to fall prematurely, when the worm quits it,
and spins a cocoon, in which it changes
to a chrysalis, and in a few days
i more the perfect insect appears, to renew
j the work of destruction. These are only
the earliest ones; the later ones do not per|
feet their transformations till the ensuing
! spring. The surest mode of destroying the
! apple worm, is to allow swine to run in the
' orchard to gather all the fruit that first falls ;
! or wh'Te this cannot be done, to pick them
[ up by hand and feed them to some animal,
j The plum weevil and the apple worm are
distinct insects. The plum weevil has
been found in the apple, but the apple worm
never in the plum.
