Delivered Before the Vinton County
Teacher's Institute, by Prof. WM. H.
YOUNG, of the Ohio University.
First, its Nature ;
i It is a State provision, conceived in
kho most enlightened and philan
thropic' age of tho world, and, in tie
light ot past experience and philoso
phy, instituted and regulated by the
aggregate wisdom of. the State, with
all the sanctity of law and the high
est commendation of religion, having
in direct view the intellectual, ahf,
collaterally the physical and mbrl
culture of the people, as the indis-
pensahlecondition to individual good,
social improvement, national prosper
ity and human progress. ; .. , .; jj
. How more just to truth and the no-
hlo and wise spirit of the age, and
how more creditable to our own intel
ligence is this view of the Common
School than that which, too current
in some communities, regards it astf
common charity a place where coiti:
mon people are . taught the common J
things needful to their common livcell
This idea of tho common, growing out
of a misapprehension of the term, and
a misconception of the thing, is some
times so dominant as to beget in coni
muriitieB manifold weak prejudice!,
false notioni, and pernicious errorq.
Chief among them is that just noted,
that the Common School is a sortofi
charity to ignorance and povertya
place where tho pororaon people are
taught the common things needful'to
their common lives, as opposed to the
select school, where better people are
taught, in a better way, a better kind
of learning Hence somo people,
without much credit, either to their
heads "or hearts, would depreciate the
Common School into a thing of disre
putc, and some bow, strangely enough,
attach a kind of stigma to those who
labor in them,
The Common School is not a com
mon thing in any disparaging 6ensc
of the term. The word common, here,
has not. the slightest notion of medi
ocrity much less inferiority. Tho
Common School is in no sense a
common charity. It has its cause and
its reason in tho convictions that the
good of the commonwealth demands
the education of its members; that
the commonwealth as the beneficiary
should pay the cost; and that the in
tercst is so important, and tho responsi
bility so great, that the aggregate
wisdom, influence, and power of the
commonwealth is the only fit agent to
conserve jt. Tho Common ' School,
then; theoretically, is the place where
all the people in common are educated
at the common expense for the com
mon good. '
Now, you will admit such schools
ought to be the boat schools. I claim
that where citizens do their duty by
them they are the best schools
Assuming for the present that this
citizen obligation is fully met, I will
point out some' of the elements of
excellence in the public school. V If
some of them are less patent than you
look for, scarcely showing themselves
at all , to the, chance observer, please
remember all great forces aro silent
ones, and the mightiest influences are
mostly hidden beneath the outer sur
face. Tho Table Eock at Niagara fell
with terrific power, but the frost of a

thousand years had : quietly prepared

Ingalla was a pious, man. ., He told
rait ho was going to church, and in
vited his new made friend to keep him
company thither, hi4 destination being
a small meeting house nearby. There
.was a great revival there at the time,
and. one of the deacons, who was a
very small man in stature, Jnvitcd
brother 1 Ingalls to lake a seat in his
pew;' He accepted the invitation, fol-

in a whisper that could be heard all

"Shure, and isn't thig a" heretic

.-."Hush !" said Ingalls j, if you speak
a word they will put you out.',', ,
"Divil a word will I speak at all at
all," replied Pat. , ';
The. meetings was' opened by
prayer by the pastor. ' .
Pat was eyeing -him very closely,
whon an old gentloman, who was
standing in the pew directly in front
of Pat, shouted liAmenl"
:. :?'Hist, ye divil I" I rejoined Pat, in
his loud whisper, which was heard by
the minister, "bo dacent, and don't
make a blockhead of yourself 1"-
Tho parson grew more fervent in
his devotions. Presontly the deacon
uttered anaudible groan "Amenl"
. "Hist, ye blackguard I Have ye
no dacency at all?') said pat, at the
same time giving bim a punch in the
ribs, which caused him to lose his

"Brethren, we can not be disturbod
in this way. Will somo jno put that
man out?" ; ; '
- "Yes, your 'riverenco," shouted Pat,
"I will do it' '"' ' 1 ''. ;
And suiting the action to the word,
he collared the deacon, and to tho
utter horror of, the, pastor, brother
Ingalls, and the whole congregation,
ho dragged him up. the aisle, and with
a tremendous kick sent him into tho
vestibulo of tho church!

a neighboring town came to our city a
fow days since, with a horse and bag

purchasing , a load of barrels not

He hitched his horse which, by the
way, was a borrowed, team-r-on Mar
ket street, and commenced perambu
lating ,the place in search of his load;
but strange it is to say, that in the
evening he made his way home, some
three Or four miles, on foot,' and did
not discover his mistake until he
