One reason tor this ignorance may be due to the fact, that the study of the condition of childhood requires the mind to turn back upon itself, and oliserve its own motions, a menial process co.diaiy lo the habits of na ture, and w hich h a made the se.eiets of the mind far less attraciive to most persons than tin s. crcts of a patent, d in ichme for the hatching of chickens.

V e cannot but look upon that class of beings stigmatized by the term boys with some lively touch of pity. Par ticularly when transplanted from the soil where they were, born, aud laced under foreign, inlluenees, are they deserving of this humane sentiment. W uld any man who has passed a moderately comfortable life be willing to live over the decade be tween his fifth" anil "fifteenth year? Does any one feel a response in his heart to that lyrical wish, now popularized by the street- organ, to be a boy again ? The truth is, that the. boy, as regards his conception of his own nature and its due education, is in advance of his age. Ho is not understood, oris misunderstood, We arrogantly put him into that class which Sir William .

The loneliness of night, the mys tery of the heavens, the sadness of good by, fill his imagination and grasp his whole soul with a power which lessens as he ad vances in years. Likevoung Albano, in, Jean Paul's delectable romance of Titan he has to restrain aud hide within himself all his emotions, his longings, his precious thoughts, for fears of some stern father or some domesticated Diogenes; or, if he ven tures to unbosom himself to an irnagiired friend of his own age, asking only for the bread of sympathy which his heart craves, it is but to find hi use If possessed of the scorpion of treachery and neglect, and per haps, at last, he flies to the beauty of some aniia'de girl, whom his ardent enthusiasm clothes with every grace and every virtue, -who smiles upon him. and comprehends him s no more than he comprehends the ocean.
