In many in utance-, uob!y, ^raielly, it in the majority i of ca^eg, iii n mean and avnticious spirit, us it education had no claims on us. We are as much engrossed in our farms and cur merchandize as if the chief ei.d of mnti was to buy and stil nt:J get gain, w hi!-the men tal and spiritual being is quite nc- lected. We seem to have subordinated evtrjtiiing to the spirit of trade, or what would Loiter ex press it, the spirit of money making. It is the measure of everything, our education, our charities, our religion: "the trail of the serpent is over them all," I hear yeu sav, trade i« honorable, and money-mahii .' in it sell tio crime. I grant it, if held in subjeo tior. ti higher nnd more important ends.- But what is the general i-|irit of trade in its daily opciations Is it i.ot for the value of one dollxr to take two? I'.r fifty to take one hundied Is il not to make sharp bargains and close ones 1 o et the greatest amount in value for the least possible amount o! money V To overreach or outfit a neighbor, and ou tho whole, to admire aud take pride in the practice of moral tl.c l't, and make ar. idol of its gains? In ils best phases, the least ill you can say of it, is that it always keep* a keen eye to the main chance. ou are ready to inquire what all this has to do with the relation of education aud property. It has everyihipg to do with it because when a man is ghen to the supreme care of self, with motives and desires all mercenary, he shots liis eyes to all obliga tions. and acts as if the world were in debt to him, lint every true nmn knows that all right living and right thinking depend upon his risiug so tar above himself aud his indi vidual interests as to perceive tbrtt his neigh* bor's good must ho considered, even at some expense to himself. as the best machinery in tb. world eaa make it.

Does he con tribute to the revenue from the whole of his income, or the half of it, or none at all You all know very well how this is. Now, this is not the spirit of honest dealing, for in that there is real pr. gress, of which I shall presently speak. Hut it is that which be uumis our highest faculties and destroys our relish for mental culture. Then! is, however, one side of this question which we fully appreciate. We have found out thuta fiue school bnilding is a splendid thing for Corner lots, that this style of improvement will run property up two or three hundred per cent., either in town or country.
