There is a popular fallacy that without the advantage of good schools, educations can not be ob tained. Byt let it be remembered that many great and good men and women of the age were, and are, almost wholly self-educated. Education, as we understand the very comprehensive term, is not merely the highest development of the intellectual faculties, an ac quaintance with the arts and sciences. " Train up a child in the way he should go " is the di vine injunction. The moral as well as the intellectual must be re garded. Impressions traced upon hearing and mind in childhood are rarely obliterated,but remain with us through life, strengthening and deepening with our years, exerting an evil or salutary influence over all our actions. How important, therefore, that only the best influ ences be brought to bear upon the youthful mind. What has the great and good Watts expressed with regard to this same education of youth? " Their future character as social and moral beings will be greatly influenced by the manner in which they are taught from an early period to regulate their emo tions, by directing them to ade quate and worthy objects, and con trolling them by great principles of wisdom and virtue." • Children naturally regard their parents as their superiors, and readily accept and imbibe their Jiews; and it would appear to them the Great Giver bad en trusted them the important re sponsibility of moulding the use ful »ad susceptible mind. Partiou larly ig it the duty of mothers to the moral and intellectual develop ment of thoir ohildren. It is to be lamented that os a oloss they are fcot better fitted to conduct the education of their own offspring. De Staël said, "If you will ensure (ho happiness of Franee, instruct of the French peo ple. ' And the noble expression is alike applicable to our own na tion. If we would but adopt such a plan, what a glorious improve ment there would be in the affairs of our land; what diminution of vice! There are those among us, young men and women with whom ad verse fortune has dealt roughly— whose aspirations have been fet tered and oppressed by the galling chains of adversity—who would gladly accept opportunities for in struction ; whose hearts crave the priceless boon of education ; but their respective occupations, en grossing the whole of their time daring the day, do not permit them the leisure to improve them selves as they desire to do. We have been among those who had a profound belief in the per sonal and financial integrity of Mr. William Butler Duncan. Bnt we see in the .*î. Y. Evening Post, a statement which if correct, will seriously reflect on the honor of Mr. Duncan. It appears from the Post's article, that Mr. Duncan, before his failure, conveyed a large amount of real estate—including the building in which the firm car ried on their bank, to his father and other relatives. Some years ago it also appears Mr. Duncan began to convey to different rela tives his large landed estate in New York, and when he failed he owned no real estate. The day before he stopped he recorded one deed which conveyed real estate worth nearly one-half million, which had been made two years ago. All this looks very badly. Mr. Duncan's failure amounts to $6,000,000, and yet we hear of such transaction as ought to make any honest man blush. A great number of poor people held small bills of the firm. They are all ruined. Travelers who trusted them are left iu a strange land penniless. Yet the senior of a great firm, could sell worthless bills of exchange to poor clergy men aud teachers who had saved a few dollars from their earnings with which to try to prolong their lease of life. For two years Mr. Duncan hides away his property, so when the evil day did come he was safe, let the poor take care of themselves as best they might. Is there any honor among the so-called great banking houses in New York? We begin to think with Jay Cooke first, Fisk and Hatch and Duncan, Sherman Co., uow, that they are not much better than deliberate swindlers. [N. O. Times. E S S Fair! Fair!!
