are thousands of parents who, from

lass of children come the great mass
paupers and criminals, tho trucu
ultitudes that make our mobs, and
lorant dupes that domagogues and

Idren to attend school, we have not,

pleasanter if legal provision, enforced by a
penalty, in such behalf, were unnecessary ; but
any measure which rescues children from the
demoralizing effects of parental carelessness or
cupidity, and which does all that can be done
to save society from the deplorable effects of
adult ignorance and stolidity, is quite within
the limits of wuo and far-seeiog legislation.
A good education does not keep men invariably
from crime; but no education at all is pretty
likely to leave them at the mercy ot circum
stances which tney are not intelligent enough
to grapple with and control.

We learn that the Hon. W. H. Rnffner,

himself with the practical working of the

st-class works of its kind. It aims
rularize tho "History of Matter and
and io peculiar style brings within
ich of every mature reader, some of
blimest truths of science. His tro.it
if the subject Is easy and natural,

American scenery, and aid the reader
much iv comprehending the text. Profes

It will delight and instruct the general
reader, while its grand generalizations are
up to the highest level of scientific minds,

the newer regions of tho continent will
find it an invaluable companion, furnishing
both delight and instruction. We shall

It wns a capital effort. Prof. Logan is a
fntianui of fine ability, thoroughly edu
cated, and perfectly conversant with the I
scicnco which bo expounds. Affecting no I
rhetorical display, be proceeds in tho quiet
est manner to elucidate his subject without
a superfluous word, and retains the un
flagging attention of tho hearer to the last.
Ilis illustrations are ample and of the finest
quality, embracing several thousand por
traits and numerous skulls of representa
tive men and women. A quiet vein of hu
mor, bubbling up now and then, bursts
into open merriment and promises the
lovers of fun a raro treat.
Prof. Logan gave delineations of the
character of two well known citizens,
chosen by tho audience, and alto of two
ladies. His accurate hits were attested by j
frequent and enthusiastic responses from
tho largo and intelligent audience. Ho
remains in tho city a week, lecturing eve

fail to be of vast benefit if improved.

Father Uyacinthe writes to a friend
in Baltimore, under date of Paris, March
24th, as follows .
"At this moment in Paris we are under the
blow of an inaurreciion as crazy as itij crimi
nal, which is dishonoring Franco before the
eyes of tbe enemy that is still at our gates
and which, while it compromises law snd or'
der in the present, compromises liberty still
naore iv the future. JVot by courses such as
these shall we reach the settlement of tbe Re.
publio and the uplifting again of France."
j After referring to the aspect of parties
iv the Catholic church iv Europe, and the
renewed controversy that is impending on
tho restoration of peace and order, he says :
"For my own part, I am afflicted, indeed at
these profound distractions among Christians
but lam not cast down. I firmly believe in
tbe work of Jesus Chriet in the world. I will
say more: I believe iv the Catholic church

Do Not Irritate the Animals.—Mr.
Eugene Hale, of Maine, is a wide-awake
man, with a keen sense of the ridiculous.
When he prepared aud offered his amnesty
bill, passed by tho House yesterday, we
wonder he did not blush to think how like
he was, in doing it, to one of his own
Maine lumbermen.
It is an old story, which relates that a
lumberman, wandering in the woods, was
chased by a bear. He got behind a'tree.
Bruin reached his paws around to grasp
him, whereupon the lumberman took hold
of hia paws and held the bear to the tree.
But, having once got hold, the poor fellow
was afraid to let go—and tbat is precisely
where he was like Mr. Hale.
Mr. Hale has got this dreadful southern
bear by the paws, and he seems to be
afraid to let go. Meantime the creaturo is
roariug, and growling, and making us all
uncomfortable; and Mr. Utile is trying to
ease him 'ill' gradually—aa though that
was going to do any good, Why not let
go at once, and run away, if he is afraid.
The animal is noisy but harmless. It will
growl ; but General Grant drew i!s teeth.
Its power for mischief will be gone the
moment it is at liberty.— N. Y. Evening
