In fact, all the pleaeantetit aexoeiatioiis of my childhood and early youth are conueeted with the dear old aeminiii-y, all iu foudext, nioit preeiou nieinoiicf, with my beloved lather, for whoi,e sake I sliind before you to-dity. To you who were hi pupils 1 need not apeak of bint. Hut a 1 recall the school, and especially an I compare it wiih other achool that 1 have known nine, tt aeema lo mo to iiuve ueen re markable for llio largo mid wiso liberty that was gran led to the pupil. We un derstood that on general principle we were expected to learn out- leon and to behave with propriety in the school room; and any failure on our part to ful ill thoHi) expectation, a gome of us distinctly rctuciiibcr, always received t he promptest attention. Hut, beyond that, I am not awuro that there were any rule of that there wa any machinery whatever. The teacher governed lurgely by mean of personal influence and force of character, de pending very little on petty regulations or other contrivances for necuring order. Certainly we were never hampered by restriction iu small matters, and I can not re member that wo were ever pressed or hurried or driven with over-work. Wo bad time lo grow, to grow health fully, and room enough given us out door to grow In. So, a I recall work ing away at a difficult passage in Horace, it is whilo sitting out on the grass, with my friend and classmate, iu Mr. WTck ham' yard. And who can say that a lesson in Homer or Vigil learned under the apple-tree at home, wa not just as well learned a if it had been studied in the school-room, and perhaps, indeed, the poetry of the ancient classic gained an aldcd charm from the poetry of the surroundings! At all events, 1 find, mingling with all my school-day mem ories, underlying them all, traces of out door scenes, the fitful play of light and shadow as the summer clouds rhai-e one another across the sky, tint roar of the mountain iielnic a slonu and tin majes tic sweep of the storm il-cll down hit blanching fni-o and over the valley be neath. 1 believe we are more indebted Ihiiu we ate wtmt to think to the iiilluciice ol tint nit- iu our cducut ion ; and so, to (lay, while we bring our tribute uf gratitude lo our faithful nud honored teachers, wn Would not forget the grand old mountain, al whose 'feel they daily sal. For, however subtile or tnysleiioiia the iiifleuces of nature are, il It (rue ol gome of the greatest and best men the world ever sjiw, that they spent much of their early life iu living contact with Iter. Dtvid mi called to the leadership of Israel "from the sheep-cute and from following the sheep." We find in the Psalms titters of the green pasture and till water of his shepherd life; we see hi. great In-art beating in sympathy with every living thing. Ami during the troubled, stormy period of bis public lift: we sec iu him a magnanimity, a cour e, patience and endurance, w hit h must have been largely the result of those lirt twenty ciira spent on the open hills uf Judt'K. The boyhood of Martin I.nlti' r was spent iu the plain of Mtiiilicld, on the bunk of the Wipper. Aud our own Lincoln, with hi simplicity, hi strength, bis intense love of tiulh, doubtless be came the genuine man he was, ami tie vel'iped thus,' i in iiie which an adinir ili't fulcl him fur the pUi-j' he afirlWard belli, oy iin aii 'if a youth spent in ci.e con w I Willi nature in the wild, tt Indi ana. Childhood i pre-eminently the season f ir enj'ii ineiil, and in order that the Ion nd il.uiis may be laid broud and deep of a a, long, licit, noble character, its call) ear. must nut be deprived of tie purr, deep tuurees of delight to be found ! in eilernal nataie. Aud we who Would leant ItuW to guide w isely and truly the J outb committed to our care, must a!o.vat field for the bighftt.and porett j sit humbly and reverently at the fi el of j Nature, ud icrn x, fr as we iuy.

If, Words worth says, "A trailing clon la of fjkiry tlo w come Ftt'iit tiod ho ia oar h'-jene," and If, as our Christian faith assure u, we me traveling on to iod who I our home, then w hy may not "the light of common day," now to most of u so dim and faint, he made to glow more and more wiih eelesliul radiance, till it shall be lost in the unclouded brightness of the perfect day? Surely It U for no lack of beauty iu common thing if only our eyes were opened Ihut we could see it. If iu youth we could only learn to Anotn as well a to feel sumelhinjr of the won drous loveliness of the world around Its, then when the senses grow dull and tit bounding pulse of youth is subdued lo the slower, steadier beat of age, the Ideas of beauty having become a part of the intellectual nature, would still continue to give a pure and lasting pleasure. "A thimr of beauty i ajoy forever," and things of beanly are very common, What child bus ever been taught to think of flic except as a nuisance in dog-days, or of moth miller sayeaa horror to thegood hou-euiff, to be annihilated at once without mercy ? Hut show him sonclime through ti microscope, or tell him, If you have no glass, how llio eye of tin fly is curiously made- of a hundred different lenses, all arranged so a to bring the light lo a single point or bow the dust on a miller's wing is composed ol minute feathers as beautifully arranged and col ored as on the wing of a southern bird then although the wur of extermination must go ou, yet the child's pure astonish ment ut the discovery will give place to a new thought of the power of God, aud a new respect for the little creatures Ho has made. Let u look at the studies commonly taught in our school, aud see if wo can find beauty in them. Take Arithmetic, the commonest of them all, quite plebeian apparently, scorned in fact by the class ic and the modern lungnages a of hum bler biikli than they. "Iteauty In Arith metic'" says tho incredulous school-boy, looking up from his slate; "I can not see it." Perhaps not; but look out of yonder window, and notico the arrangement of each delicate, quivering leaf upon its stem, listen to the song of that bird as be is pouring out upon the vocal air his ful' hearted melody, see tho rain drops spark ling in tho sun, yes, behold there the glorious rainbow iu the sky, and know that each and all of these depend for their exquisite perfection upon the beautiful science of numbers. Or consider the starry heavens, where work! upon world system upon system, moving with incon ceivable volocity, with us jostling, no contusion, no disturbance, prescrvos ever an intrinsic and eternal harmony, becauso kept each in its appointed place by the Divine will, declaring itself through the majestic law of number. Then let no school-boy so degrade this noble science, this daughter of the mind of tiotl, us lo suppose that her thief office is to make of him a clever accountant and enable him lo compute interest at 7 ;S 4 per cent. Who that has ever stud ied Phy-oltigy does not remember with w luit a I In ill of delight ho first learned ol the coiisti uciioti ol the human heart, with its valves, it conn ecting vciut aud ar teries? Other fact muy be forgotten afterwards; be may not be able to tell the mciatursitl bone from the metacar pal; pharynx, larynx and trachea muy be j u in t, it .) in helpless confusion In bis iileus, but his delight in that perfect mechanism, hi love of beauty satisfied, w ill remain lo him an inalienable pos session forever, llotauy I a science w hich fiom it-t connection with flower may natdially be supposed to possess beauty ; but it bard, unpronounceable names make it rather tepulsive until one din livers the law of tho propagation ol species iu the higher order of planls,and then, as by a Hash of light, the unity ol the divine plan iu the animal and vege table world is revealed to him, and the whole created universe ha forever after a new significance for lum. So with PliVsii-s anil the other natural sciences In the word, of a recent writer, "the best si ienlifii: research and progress do hot tend downward toward a grosser timti-i n:i-m, but away from It towards the highest spiritual philosophy the light of seieiit-e lending upward meets thai nl rc fin! iuu aiicaiiiing downward an I they nit D I together. Matter, the tiioie we anaU r.u it, lose it gross ties ami Iri'i-nmr transparent, showing the inoti.ms uncovered of Him who work in u. and around ut; and nature it only the veil with which kc cover oar eye, that we be not too much datie 1 or overawed j under the ojicn face of the Oodhead." j If, tben.in common thing anj the com- , utou sludii of our tcbnol there it 0cb a pleasure, w hat shall be id of those boy or gula ho, ihronjti their own fault or ll.at of their psrettt or teacher, never enter it and know u 'thing of il? The , love of be.olr, being inborn, cannot be eradicated, but it will make 10 itaelf falae godt ni will bow down and worship lfctm ,f u ol caStj.gtedl wito , par6( honett heart and a wood inttlllgence, It dcjrcuTit IdIo teutta!ity or flaunt j il u.1 f I n i.ll av ftf ! fa VI (ml lltl'Sr ' iiwivin iuu t v.hm uvi i ..t.. I l.Tr.l. n,l itrt t till lower ob ludownward course. The higher bao!y I sacrificed to the lower, ; inl beanty of character the highest kind of beanly t forever lost. If then formation of character 1 the great end of school training, it is iuixrtanl that there should be at (he very outset some Idea of the beauty of character. And just here the teacher' grand power to help come in. Uis pupil will doubtless etch have for himself more or les clearly formed In hi own mind hi own ideal; but the teacher; watcbiug them all from day to day, longing to bring ont the best that is In them; will discover the germ of tome peculiar beauty or grace in each, ami will from hi larger experience form a truer ideal of each: until hi pupils, even the weakest and dullest of litem all will, by constant intorcourte with him come lo be luspircd with his belief In grander pos sibilities for them. Hut if you teach very long there will come aometime into vour school one, there ate not many such, in whom the acute perception of your finest charity can discern no beauty a boy so low, to mean, so utterly base thai jour first impulse will be lo turn from him in disgust. Hut you have no right to do that; you have beard of a love mightier than the love of beauty a love for that which I nof beautiful a love for the miserable aud poor and blind and naked, because it ueoded love, and putting away your small disgust you must open your heart to that Divine love till it shall come through you like a consuming fire to burn through the boy's baseness and kindle into living euergy that spark of tlie divine image which you could not tec, but which not seeing you believe In and "a fire may be kindled which by the grace of Cod shall never be put out." Then when at last your work is done, when in heaven your own thirst for per fect beauty is satisfied and you look back over your own lifo aud that of your pupils when you too against what fear ful odds some of tlictn have bad to con tend, you will wonder that yott were ever Impatient with them will wonder that you were ever weary in helping them and will bless God for all Ho ha given you to do In tho glorious work of teaching. H1IKKP BTUK1KM. At tlie cattle yards in East Buffalo there Is an itnmcuse sheep house, capa ble of holding twenty thousand sheep. It is situated some dislanco from the rail road, and is reached by a somewhat cir cuitous route, through various streets aud avenues of tho yard. When cattle trains arrive In the night the sheep are unloaded and driven fo the house. Now this was somewhat troublesome, until introduction of Hilly, the subject of the sketch. Billy is a fitio weather. He is not a Cotswold, nor a Southdown, nor a Merino. Indeed, I am afraid that his pedigree Is somewhat in obscurity. Dut for all that, he is a most Intelligent sheep. When tho sheep are all unloaded, Billy, with bell on his neck, is placed at the bead of the flock. Ho leads (hem thro' tho long avenues to tho bouso and Into tho pens, aud as tho last one enters the pen, Billy slips out the gate, and returns to his own stall aud bale of hay. All this is done better than it could bo by several men. The story of Hilly reminds us of an other Billy, who, on seeing hi shadow, through one of li e large, pinto glass window, of a city dry goods store, stop ped to give him a bunt, and as hu went through the window, into the salesroom of the astonished Inmates, be led every sheep behind him, till the room at com pletely filled with wool and live mutton, much lo the discomfiture of all concern ed. There was an old couple at the Ceil tral depot yesterday wailing to get thro' to the West, and they seemed loving enough until the old man went out and returned smoking a five-cent cigar and with hi hut sluiiling over hi left cur.- Thu wife lookrtl at bint twice before the could recognize him, and then opened her mouth and said: Wliat'd I tell you, Pbiletus Itemington, before we left New Jersey? Didn't I say you'd go and make a fool of yourself the first chance you got? Ho tried lo pacify her by saying that the cigar only coat five cents, but alio shouted: You leased and teased till 1 let you git your boot blacked; then you wanted tome soda water; then you bought apple on the train, and here' another live cent thrown away! It all couut up, and If you don't die in the poor house then my name ain't Hary ! In a very well known towu in Vermont there i a flourishing colony of Irish set tler who have cultivated the soil to tome profit. Some of the number emi grated a few year since to seek their fortune elsewhere. One ol Ibcrn, re turning for a visit, wa making inquiries a to hi old friends; among them was one Jim Donovan. Ah! Ned, w here is Jim Donovan? Oh! tire be bat slttled down entirely, anil 1 well off; Lot, bd luck to him, be went to Montreal and married a little Protestant g'ul! Married what? A Protestant girj! May the tlivil fly away with him! why didn't be marry one of hit own wx? The lily school room ate deserted now, but iu the country the school in arm proper, Ibe only genuine tt.boo! marm, i blooming In ber fullest Inxurience. Now tb daily dresse down pempiring nrchin and now in the cild dual ) strolls tbrongh shady by-way with Ler young man. And what can crowded citict offer to tempt that young man ! Be just before you are generoot. Ktol-lsll l.S.l At.K. IUyard Taylor, in on of hi rei cnl say tht be b noticed one j ' striking change in l'l.'ypt.

Now, wo believe that eventually the off-fore leg can bo developed into a thumb, while tho tli i co other legs aud tho tail can be arranged as fingers. We tiro crossing lizards with short fail with long legs; and we tiro now looking around for a variety of lizard wiih a button or two in his neck, for tho purposo of breeding il In with tho others, whoso eyes will an swer for the bittlou-holes.
