These summer schools are now in successful pro gress. These statements are n editable to the teachers, and also to the schools in town where they lcceivcd the rudiments of education, and to our Academy where they enjoyed tlie benefit of a m re advanced and sys tematic eoinc of study. Parents and friends of education, a few words to y on. Do vhn,t you ear) to sustain your schools by en couraging ypnr children to lie eon stant and punctual ia attendance. The time is at hand when some parents allow 1 lieu- children to be absent from school to gaf.ier berries arid for other purposes. There may i bo some gain of iruit but tie loss ' of time, standing and advancement of the scholars, who are thus absent is a serious evil, and its effects may be lifelong upon such children. For the benefit of the children encourage them to ovoid absences. There wouid be a gain, perhaps upon the whole, by dismissing the sol U pn the remaining alternate Satur days, and thus give all a chance to go into the fields for berries. It is believed that the interests and suc cess of our schools would be pro moted by adopting this plan. Let it be understood that such is the. ar rangement and the children would forego the pleasure of an occasional absence and wait for this till Satur day come. And the teacher, if not required, as she should not be, tp make up the time, may avail her self of the opportunity to nceompa ny hcrpupilannd to share with them the toil and pleasure of these rambles.

The loose horse was kicked by (he mare under (lie care of (lie boy. But the testimony differed materially as to (he circumstances under which the kick was given. J'lfl'. and his w it ness claimed that the mare kicked the horse on the right side and broke a rib and cracked two others. Deft, showed that the position of the ani mals was such that if the mare kick ed the horse, it must have been on the left side. The mare was sharp shod the day before, yet there was no mark left by the blow. The horse traveled to Lyme, and was then so sick ns to be tillable to go any furth er and died in a few days of pneumo nia.

II., on the morning of June 21st, but was recaptured alter an exciting chase of a mile or more, and was agaiv lodged in jail, where lie is now chained to the floor of the dungeon. Mills manifests more ingenuity in escaping from custody than he does in eluding the otliceys w hen at liber ty. Since his capture after his first escape, he has been kept in the dungeon oi me jail, to all appear ances as secure as granite and iron could make it. Through some means he got off a bar of iron, which was across the door, and with this he loosened and moved a large stone, thus making an opening into an ad joining cell through which he crawl ed, and from hero he escaped into the corridor by prying an iron door from its hinges. When he hud got into the corridor he waited till (he jailor should come in in the morning to bring his food, when he intend ed to strike him down and make his escape ; hut the sheriff happened lo be absent from home and his daughter went in with the. food, and Mills, not wishing to harm lu r, w ait ed till she had swung the door open, iuid then frighteded her away, ind ran out of the house across the street and through the fields. Beiiu; much fa tigued by hisexertionsin gelling out lie soon lcll.unable to go any farlier when he was taken without resist ance, and carried back to his old quarters whckC he will be now close ly watched, as well as chained and ironed.
