I ' Tl , NATIONAL RKfUBII0AN. , T' For the National Republican, '"'l 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 development. , 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 character. T 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'. PniLOUATU. to be continued. I propose to give a brief statement of the claims of education, and the best means for securing it, with special application to this District. THE TIGHT BOOT , 01, 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 U&S3iESaF-. that the Government o State his right foot against one of my feet, and ob- telri'rny assistance., lie placed himself nmly against be doorjand I caught his leg and be 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 bllog.lntqthe ball rpoml , ,8uch screams, from, .the female and such consternation, ejnongjtbe beaux was never befbf,seen. In, tpa 'midst of mirth, uproari ous, X. heard, thy platUr.of horse's hoof, and, looking put of thi lndow,.I beheld a solitary horseman, rlvinir, with, the .speed of a locomo- , live, his long hair streaming In the wind, and clothed fn. full Georgia, costume, to wit: ft shity "WWftWJ" ajpfUn ft, Por. ". i '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 wm MytiaTsg Mlurnodfrom tuo tailor. wnea the Boon wile stenned in.

If, on the other hand, she wishti to assume a distinguished and somewhat nble bearing, not suggestive of sweetness, she should say Brush, tho result of which is infallible.

She replied, " I don't know, indeed, papa, unless it is because I love everybody."
