For the Reporter.
Another error, and perhaps, a graver an*
ia to consider the cultivation of the facul
ties ef the mind subordinate to the acqui
sition of knowledga The erronoousness
of this idea is not so evident at first view,
and this fact account* for it* almost uni
versal acceptance arm ng our teacher* as
well as the people in geaeral. The meth
od of instructiee pursued ia moat of our
achoola shows that it is ths teacher's chief
aim to fill the minds of the pupila with an
amount of facta, apparently regarding the
minds* a mare receptacle, a kind of ftore
heuaa for knowledge, instead of a living,
inteligant agant whose facultiaa are te be
draws out and developed by exercise.
Pupila are required to take up eight to ten
branchee of study simultaneously, and wt
often observe little boys and girls slowly
wending their way to tcboel burdened
down by u huge pile of taxt-books, and if
we would follow them to the school-room,
we would, almost invariably, find the
teacher assiduously engaged in pouring ir
to their mind* a vast amount of dry facta
in History or Geography, or requiring
them to commit innumerable and in com
preheneibla definitions in Grammar and
Mathematics, without any particular ref
erases as to method in study and instruc
tion. This is a mistakes idea on the part
of these teacher* a* to the object of educa
tion. Its true end is not to make men
"Walking Dictionarias," or "Reference
Libraries," but to devalope tba faculties ef
their minds so that they will become inde
pendent thinker*. Knowledge is only a
meant to tho training ofthe mind, it ia tba
scaffold which ia used in building it up,
and is valuable only in proportion as it is
conducive towards that end. Neither ia a
vast amount of knowledga and a high de
gree of mental culture always ia ths same
proportion. True, it is by a search after
knowledge that we cultivate our faculties,
yet this result does not alwnys follow a* a
necessary consequanca. There are persons
whose minds nre stored with n large accu
mulation of fitcts, and still are not endow
ed with any great intellectual energy, in
our studies then, it is not so much tbo facte
we want a* the training—the mental disci
pliae which we have to undergo in sooking
them. It is for this reason that pupil*
should never bo told any thing which they
can find out for themselves. They should
be taught to rely upon themselves ia thair
investigations of complaz problems. It ia
thi* lava of overcoming difficulties that
binds the mind oftha trua studant to ab
struse principles of tcionco for days and
weeks and causas him to rofusa all assist
anca in analyzing thorn There ara a
thousand things which wo might know by
maraly inquiring of thosa around us or by
refer in gto books, but wa would ratbor
spend days, months, and oven years in dis
covering for ourselves the few of them
simply because it is more the exercise we
need than the result itself and because of
the satisfaction derived from conquering
difficulties. Numerous quotations from
eminent authors might be given to show,
that in their opinion the superior end ia
nut the acquisition of Truth, but the exer
cise required in obtaining truth. Aristo
tle says, 'the intellect is perfected, net by
knowledge but by activity." Seotus of
the school-men asserts that a man's knowl
edge is measured by the amount of his
mental activity." "Truth," says Von
Muller, "is the property of Uod, the pur
suit of truth is what belongs to man." "Did
the Almighty," says Lessing, "holding in
his right hand Truth, and in his left Starch
after Truth , deign to offer me the one 1
might prefer-in all humility, but without
, hesitation, I should prefer Search after
Truth." And, says Malebrancbe, "If I
' held truth captive I would let it fly
, in order that 1 might again pursue and
capture it." Considering, therefore, men
tal exercise the superior object in our edu
' cation, it is evident that such a plan of
study should be followed, and such scion*
, ces should be taken up as will call forth
I the greatest amounj of mental activity.
'• As to the method to be pursued in study,
. volumes have been written, and in this
f place only a few general bints will be giv
" en. Illustrating these suggestions by ap
, plying them to teachers and pupils, the
>1 former should not be too anxious to assist
f the latter at every little obstacle that may j
* present Itself in their lessens, mental ef
fort Is the object ef thair study, and diffi
t unifies fbrwteh fog it $e ddegatetu. Ijfcn
teachers chief tim mutt be lo eieite th
tha interest* of hit pupils in thalr studies,
and if successful in this, hit objtci it ac
complished. Hooks, which profes* |to
make study eaty. should be banished from
tha schoolroom, for their authors wara la
mentably ignorant as to the true object of
education, They tee seamed to regard the
mind as being a passive agent—a sheet of
paper upon which tha instructor is'etpect
•<l te make copious impressions of knowl
edge with as little esertion on tha part of
the pupil as possible It mighs be remark
ed in this connection that it Is not tha targe
number of branches pursued at the same
time that secures the highest degree ol
mental culture. It the mind attempts to
prosecute 100 many different studio at
ones, it becomes distracted, Mud that de
gree ef } rotracied attention necessary to
the succeaalul Investigation of complex
subjects, can not be secured Were it not
for the shortness of the school term so that
some branches might be discontinued and
aew ores taheu up, the policy of having
pupils of our common schools study eight
or ten different one* during a term, should
be abolished. However, until school* are
more properly graded aad term extended
no improvement in this respect, perhaps,
eais. be made Per under existing circum
stances it it impotible to finish teveral, it
any. branches of study, and it is highly
important that a knowledge ef the rudi
ment* at least of each mentioned on the
teacher'* certificate thoulJ be acquired
And, in conclusion, those sciences, a*
before stated, should claim our attention
mare particularly which demand the great
est amount of mental activity. Taking
this principle as aur criterion—remember
ing also, that at different stage* of develop
ment the mind has adapted to it different
kinds of studies—it does not matter *<-
muck after all whether we roan, with the
Botanist the blooming Held* of Nature
and examine rooU of vegetable* or, with
the Linguist, pour over the musty volumes
of ancient classic writers and trace the
roots of verbs of Latin and Ureek , wheth
er, with the Geologist, we descend into the
profound**! caverns ofthe earth and there
read in unmistakable characters the histo
ry of her creation, or on the airy pinions ot
Astronomy extend our flight athwart the
blue vaults of heaven, reek out new plai-ets
and compute their swift evolutions through
the immensity ol space.
I But the noblest subject for the investi
gation of the human mind is the mind it
'self. There sre phenomena of human con
sciousness which are but faintly under

their canse* and nature—ths hypotheses
which are devised to account for them, ev
