THE KAltLY EDUCATION JOHN STUAitT JllIiL. OF Tho autobiography of John Stuart Mill has just boon published in London, From an adviiuco copy, tho Now York 'Tribune of Octobor thirty-Ant madn ome length extracts. Among t.um wero some relating to tho early education of Mr. Mill, which was carried on under tho diroct supervision of his father, Mr. J James Mill) himsolf a raun of carefully culturod mind. Under his tutllago, his son began to learn Greek when butnlittlu past throo years or ago, and until his eighth year, was taught In no other branch of education, studying during this time, Easopls Fables, Herodotus, Memo rial, of Socrates, Dialogues of l'lato, etc , at tho age of eight years, ho bogan tU tudyof Latin, and with tbo exception of Arithmetic, was xnado to pursue none of "Ihe studies usually rammed t tb young itudent. Instead of these his tiiao was devoted to the study and digos tlon of history, biography, etc., tho plan pursued bolng to repeat to his father each morning from notes mado by him elf, the ubstance of what had boon read the day before. Of the mccen of this course, Mr. Mill says: I have thought that In an age In which education nnd its improvement uro tho iubject of moro.if not of profounder utudy than at any former period of English hit.' tory, it may bo usoful that thoro hould bu ome record of an education which wus unusual and remarkable, and which, whatever else it might havo done, hat proved how much more than is commonly uppoeed may bo taught, In thoso early yean, wblcn, in tlio common modi-' of wbkti called instruction, are little better than wasted. Jo the light of Amorican ideas regard ing the education of tho young, that of young Mill may appear (lingular and forced, but it result earnod for him the reputation of bolng the mctt thoroughly educated man of hi time. A study of fell life and the manner In which LI mind waa directed, furolihe food for rofloctlon upon tho system of Instruction generally pursued In our public schools. "Wo (ay f-onorally, tor wn Know mni i-onm bold nnd progressive teachers of tho young Idea h&vo struck out Into now paths of Instruction, Mid nro treading them wlih great satisfaction to tbotnsolvcs nnd benefit to their pupils. Until re cently, however, nnd In too many In stance oven now, tho common method however correct it may ho in Itself and nowovor faithfully taught, I eminently unsatisfactory In Its result.

From that time, urilH tho ago of fourteen, sixteen, eighteen anil Sometimes twenty years of r.gp,iuthocno may be, they spend six hours a day In tlio school room with what result?

This timo was limited of course, but it gavo us, on UiO wliula, n eiy fuvoii.Ma opinion ot tho schools as tliuy aro now conducted.

Tho rooms are, with fow exceptions, com fortablo and comfortably furnished, and tho children who spond such a largo por tion of each day In thorn, enjoy facilities for tha acquirement of knowledge that wuro unknown to their parents. TIIK FIK3T P1UMAKY. ThU department of thu public schools of Cairo is tuujbt by Mls Kogors In tho little finmo building on Eleventh street, which hns, for ovor n dozon years or more, b'on mod ns a building for a primary school. Tho sciiool averages nt present ovor ono hundred pu pils whoio nges run from six and n half to nine years, Tho room contains thirty-six seats or bonche of tho modern kind, CJtt iron log, black walnut frames with two Httlo dotks placed on tha middle ond of tho scat and to tho right of thu pupil, tho desk tabio so roundod out ns to accommodate tho little pupil in n comfortublo position and afford n resting place for tho right arm, nnd tho book or slate. The thirty-six tents nro occupied by snvonty-two pupils, and ns tho school number hundred pupils, moro or less, it is often thu caso that from ten to llftoen nro compelled to stand, generally around a tublo, whuro they nro allowed to nmuso themselves with blocks, and short dicks. with which thoy spoil out words, form sentences, cte. Tho visitor at Miss Kogors' school Is impressed with tho ordor which prevails, nnd tho genornl air ol sludiousness and attention riotlcon- bio among tho littlo pupils, both when In their soats or In dais. Considering that in point of years, mont of tho children aro littlo moro than mere babies, tho ordor observed is almost remarkable. Miss Kogors teaches by OlUECT LESSON?, varied according to onginnl idem of hor own upon tho best plan of dealing with thu littlo ones, nnd to ono who ro members tho school room of u generation ago, with its hundrurn routine of oxer Ciics, Miss Kogurs' method is at onco on tortaining and suggestive. For instance : a class of tho youngest pupils In tho room are called by tho ringing of a bull to tako tholr places for a recitation. To tho clapping of their tholr own and toachur'e hnnds.thny inarch, all keeping step, ton position in thu front of a hlackboard-tho blackboards, wo omitted to mention, aro in rather a dilapi dated condition and carry ono back, with not much effort of tho memory, to tho school rooms of some twenty years ago hero thoy form themselves into two ha't circles, ono smaller tlmi tho other and within It. Mi.s Kogurs write tho word "dog" on the black board, huving seurched out an unbroken place on which to do o and giving ono of tho pupils n "pointer," ho point to tho written word, niki bow many Utter thira wo in it, THK OAlllu DAILY whnt they nro, what thoy spoil, etc., all of which Imving boon Bntisfactorily answered, tho Instructress nil; what n dog is, what aro tlio qualities, kinds, color etc , of tho dog, all tho tlmo having tho eager and undividod nttontioii of hor class, (Hid gaining from them much interesting information con cerning their own family dog, what aro their name and thu particular good points and ipinlilie of innli Tho lesson having continued for probably hail' an hour, tho sum of its attainments Wing n knowledgn of tho form of tho letter ol tiio word used, their num ber, thn lueunlng of tho word, In an ex tended sono for inch young learners, tho girl and boys march to their seals in thn systematic iimnncr In which thoy lelt them. Tho school i now ready for ro cos, and after singing, with nniination nud in good tune, it ong adapted to their understanding, they pals out of tho school room, quickly and quietly, Wo havo given, wo believe, a fair record of tho exercises of MUs Kogors' school, as thoy appeared to us during an Inmr'i! viU omitting to mention, for want of room, much that was interesting to us and prolltablo to thn children. .Mis Kogcr, who is from tho stato of Mow York, but Immediately prior to coming to Cairo taught In the ."Cliools of Syt-ainoro, I 111 noi), Improsscd us as n lady who, from n natural fondnof for tho littlo folks, hav ing mado their needs, ways and natures n study, iindcrstitid well thu art of man aging and teaching thorn. THE L'l'I'EK I'KIMAKY SCHOOL, in tho high school building is under tho cliargu of Miss Kois, who la now in bur socoud year as n teacher in Cairo; nho came to Ibis city from l'roeport, Illinois, whorj sho had Wrpo experience in thu profession of tutching. Miss Koss wus formerly n teacher in thegrammnr depart ment of Freeport, but ronignod her chargo to duvolo liorsolf to tlio instruction ofchll drill, hor tasta and hor forte, as sho be lieved, lying In this direction. Miss Koss is n pleasant-voiced lady of rather ncrv ous manner, who, if wo nro to Judgo by nppearanccs, ontora into tho spirit of Lor occupation with enthusiasm. Her school room, furnished similarly to MIs Kog ors', is a co-.nfortablo one, nnd contrary to that lad y's,all its appurtunancci aro in good order. In MiM Kogors' room wo wit nessed only tho oxorclsos of tho very now beginners; in Miss Koss', wo wero present nt thoso of tho moro advanced pupils though these too, nro mori children, the ago of none, wo beliuve, being moro than oight and n half or nino years. Tlio method of instruction pursued by Mits Kos is nlso thit of object lessons; tho first recitation to which wo listened was tho "lesson of tho Stoamnr." In full vlow of tho school, hings n framed litho grnphio representation of tho steamer Kobort E. Leo.
