great credit forltheir public spirit,

An idea prevails that truths are
obvious enough in themselves, but
that they apjdy only to men of lit
ery education to piofession'nl
characters and persons of fortune
and leisure, and that it is out of
tho powor of the other classo of
society, and those who pass most
of their time in manual labor anil
mechanical industry, to engage in'
the puiidt of knowledge tvith any
hope of being useful to themselves
or others. This wo believo to be
an error. What is it that we wish
