Isid I .a There waseu;n:a._ at all in the apa er to-dy ? Publis Edutcatlotn. Everybody praise ani intelligent community becatnue education is re garded as pnhlic benefactor. The hopeful immigrant fit-t wviRheS to know the educnational facilities of his newly chosen location. This is all natural, for thle lessings of edi cation are not easily over-estimated. It blesses the innocent youth in im planting in the heart the germs of progress, thought and development. It inspires the young man to hope fuil exertion, knowing that the highest. achievements of life are gained by development of head and heart. Education lessens crime and pro motes virt ue, and only by its benign influence may the responsibilities of life be fully understood or its re quirements fulfilled. Especially is it the duty of the American citizen, not only to s.e that himself nand children are educated, but that its blessings are extended to all alike. Man is, sby Providential design, a delpendent being, and he cannot cheat others wthont cheating him self. He may, through a philosophy of pure'selfishness, imagine he can enjoy the good things of life and withhold them from others, but this is wrong and vain, and will tell somewhere. If he chooses to leave all aromtld him in ignomence and darkness, he entails the curse of an ignorant community upon his pos terity. His children mnst build penitentiaries and jails, snpport paupers and make laws to prevent crimes which the parental head, by a wise course, might have done much~o avert. Whoever is pursu ing this policy is not studyingwise ly the intereats ofjhose who are to come after him and esanot eseape censure. More everely wold we censure him, Who, having the op pl)ortunities, neglects to improve them in educating his own postuerity. No one has the moral rightto let his childrqepgrow up in soeiley ig lorsat idle and vicioum D4a an ipoitioU apoa neighbors, oa~ppu nities and especially upou the prain dples of free govermemt, A Ire under solemn obligatiom to som tribte to the public good undt-thi cannot be done by negbott of the means whihe , es.. sential elements of a good eitis. The parent who permits his on to grow up idle, ignoraut mud rtioa is doing a publie wrng, bothto society and goveramast sad should be held responsible. Feeling ,that there is great used of the eetabliment of sboelsl for all, for the blmsing of all in our land, we cannot close this article without alluding more practically to ihe eJbject. It is easy enough to spout, "Hurrah for Edaestion," but let as remember spouting is not doing. We hope to be corrected if we are wrong when we say that, ap to date, the free school system of this State, ontaide of New Orleansn is an absolute failure. The system has not enough life and permanency to attract the intelligent, aspiring teacher, and where have we a soli tarv linilding in which to place him? We have a copious school law, but what has it accomplished or whom has it blessed ? Laws, to be made eftectnal, must be administered, and he whose duty it is should do it in a spirit to aecomplish the design for which the law was made. If we have schooi'ofllcers, filling posi tions because they have nothing els:,, let them in candor execute the law or resign. Little lesl machinery until there is more for the machinery to do! Fewer salaried officers until there is more work for them! V hat have District Superinten dents done, or what can they do? If the free school system of this State is to be a snocess, it-mnst be taken well in hand, by men who moan to do something, or thewhole thing will fall to the ground and bring all connected with it into dis rpnute .and contempt., Sh rsreport iuepn coo. A KAUTw U IESIUm. thilwer eloquently says: 'I cannot believe that earth is man's abiding piwe. It cannot be that our life is cast up by the ocean of eternity to float a moment upon its waves and to sink into nothing less! Else, why is it that the glorious aspira tions which leap like angela.from the temple of our hearts, are forever wandering about unsatisfied? Why is it that the rainbow and clouds come over us with a beauty that is not of earth, and then pass of and leave us to muse upon their faded loveliness? Why is it that the stars, who hold their festival around the midnight throne, are set above the grasp of our limited faculties, for ever mocking us with their unap proachable glory? And, finally, why is it that forms of human beauty are presented to our view and then taken from us, leaving the thousand streams of our affections to flow back in Alpine torrents upon our hearts ? We are born for a higher' destiny than that of earth. There is a realm where the rainbow never fades; where the stars will spread before us like islands that slumber on the ocean; and where the beings that pas before s like shadows, will stay in our presmesc forever. The following bit of good advice is from the Working Mlni, and is worthy the attention of all our readers: "Lay it down as a foundation rule, that you will be faithfunl in that which is least." Pick up the loose nails, bits of twine, clean wrapping paper, and put them in their places. Be ready to throew in an odd half-i hour or honr's time, when it will be an accemmodatima, and dont seem to make merit of it. Do it heartily. Though at a word be mid, be mre your employer will make a note of it. Make yorself inadiipr aible to him,ad he will lee miaJ of the opposite kind befor he will part with you.

Old George Holland, the recently deceased actor, once, when confined to his bed and unable to put his feet to the ground, being told by a friend that his dignified indisposi tion was the laugh of the green room, replied: "Though I love to laugh and make others laugh, yet T would much rather they would make a s/ln,.d;Jn joke."
