Since the recommencement of the exercises of his School, the Teacher has mad® a very important altera tion in his system of government.

Children may be mortified and punished by restraint, wi'hout degrading them in their own estimationi and by confinement they have an opportunity, forced upon them as it were. f*»r mediation and reflection Their Teacher has likewise an opportunity thus aftorded him of reasoning with hi* delinquent pupils, and of present ing to him his delinquencies in their proper tnsntter.
